Small


Counties Targeted


Proposed Budget Has

Extra Money For Area


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

Legislative delegation hearings are
much smoother and organized af-
fairs nowadays, thanks to the
behind-the-scenes work of the local
legislative lobbying committee.
Last Thursday's reception and
public hearing at the Opera House is
a good example.
Although a few local officials and
citizens presented Senators Al Law-
son and Nancy Argenziano and
Representatives Will Kendrick and
Loranne Ausley with requests, the
proceeding was relatively brief and
lacked the rambling, freewheeling
quality of old.
That's because members of the
legislative lobbying committee had
been meeting regularly with the
lawmakers over the preceding
Ilrilird and making them aware of
the county's concerns and special
needs, or priority projects.
Thus, Commission Chairman Fe-
lix "Skeet" Joyner chose to dedicate
his time Thursday to urging the leg-
islators to support the governor's
Rural Initiative.
"If the governor's Rural Initiative
passes, it will mean $500,000 a year
for Jefferson County and it will be a
recurring fund," Joyner said.
He urged the legislators to ap-
prove the initiative and asked how
the local committee might convince
legislators from the bigger urban
counties to support the measure?
Argenziano offered that if local
Officials really wanted to lobby ur-
ban county legislators, her staff and
the staffs of the three other legisla-
tors would be glad to put the local
officials in touch with the staffs of
the big county legislators.
But the proper way to lobby urban
lawmakers, she pointed out, was
through organizations such as the

Library Cuts Personnel


AS Result Of Shortfall


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer


Budgetary problems are taking
their toll at the library.
As of Monday, the library is mi-
nus two part-timer helpers, and the
full-time staff has had its hours re-
duced by eight hours each.
Library Director Linda Hamedani
said the cutbacks were unavoidable,
given the approximately $59,000
cutback in'state aide.
She said the reduced hours were
the best solution possible under:the
circumstances, allowing the full-
time people both to remain em-
ployed and keep their benefits. The
alternative, she said, would have
been to let go two of the full-timers.
Library users shouldn't see any
changes in the hours of operation,
however. At least not for the time


being.
That's because the staff is rotating
'its hours to ensure that the library
remains open Tuesday evenings and
Saturday.
It doesn't appear either that the,re-
duction in personnel will be short-
term. According to Hamedani, the
library will likely get even less state
funding next year, given that the
county contributed $93,000 last
year, versus the $97,000 it contrib-
uted two years ago.
The way the state funding works,
it's based on a complicated formula
that takes into account a county's
contribution to its library two years
previous. Hence,-this year's state
funding is based on the county's
contribution two years ago.
The rule- of thumb is that the
higher the local contribution, the
higher the state's contribution.


The state's idea is to encourage lo-
cal governments to make ever
higher contributions to their local li-
braries each succeeding year. Gov-
ernment entities that fail to meet this
ever escalating contribution require-
ment are penalized by losing the
ability to double-dip.
Which is essentially what hap-
pened to the county this year. Rather
than gettingthe $100,000 plus it
normally gets in state aide each
year, the library received $58,726.
As if the facility didn't have
problems enough, someone broke
into the building twice last week --
once on a Sunday and again on
,Thursday.
Hamedani said the culprit stole
only pett) cash and may have taken
time to play games on one of the li-
brary's computers.
The police is investigating the in-
cident.


Florida Association of Counties and
the Coalition of Small Counties.
It was her job, moreover -- along
with Lawson, Hendrick and Ausley
-- to lobby the big county legislators
on behalf of the small counties.
"We'll. be your lobbyist with the
urban legislators," Argenziano said.
"We pledge we'll do everything in
our power to help you in this
regard," Lawson added.
Ausley also made the point that
the local delegation was in a better
position to help its constituents in
the coming session, given some of
the powerful committee to which
some of the members had been ap-
pointed.
"It's the best indication that our
voices have been heard and that our


leadership is listening," Ausley said
of the committee appointments.
As for the fact of the governor
proposing the rural initiative, the
only reason he was doing so was be-
cause of the pressure mounted by
rural legislators and county officials
over the last several years, Argenzi-
ano said.,
She pointed out that parts of the
governor's initiative contained bills
originally proposed by legislators
and rejected by the governor.
"Many of us brought these issues
up before and they got vetoed," Ar-
genziano said. "But the fact that the
initiative is there now is because of
all the hard work that preceded it."
All four legislators, in fact, ex-
pressed the thinking that the coming
session would prove beneficial to
small, rural counties -- a marked
contrast to last year's session.
"I'm looking for a great year,"

County Revises List


Of Priority


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer


The County Commission last
week revised slightly the list of pri-
ority projects it wants the Legisla-
ture to fund in the coming session.
By unanimous vote, commission-
ers reversed the order of the last two
items, putting the emergency opera-
tion center at number three and the
multipurpose agricultural center at
number four.
Items one and two -- the upgrade
of the industrial park infrastructure
and the conversion of former high
school buildings into a courthouse
annex respectively -- remained in
their original positions.
Commissioners' justification for
the change was that the funding, for
the 'multipurpose agriculture center
appears may be secured from a


Projects
source other than the Legislature.
The county is seeking $724,000
for infrastructure improvements at
the industrial park. It is seeking $2
million for the conversion of the
former house school buildings into a
courthouse annex.
It is seeking $300,000 for con-
struction of an emergency operation
center and almost $1 million for es-
tablishment of the multipurpose ag-
riculture center.
The emergency operation center
would house fire, ambulance, Emer-
gency Management or other first re-
sponders. It would be located near
the jail.
The multipurpose agriculture cen-
ter would include an arena, a pavil-
ion and a civic center capable of
hosting small size conventions. It
would be located on a 20-acre parcel
the county owns off US Highway
90, about four miles west of the city.


Racetrack Lawsuit


Is Going Nowhere


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

The suit filed by opponents of the
go-car racetrack appears to be going
nowhere.
The court, at least, has yet to
schedule a hearing on the case.
"Nobody's asked for a hearing,"
Clerk of Courts Dale Boatwright
said Monday. "It's just sitting
there."
The County Commission voted
unanimously in early November to
defend the board's approval of the
controversial facility. The
commission's action was supposed
to set in motion the process for a
hearing.
At the time, County Attorney
Buck Bird explained that the suit ef-
fectively stopped the racetrack de-
velopment from going forward, until
the suit was settled.
The suit was originally filed in
mid September, but for some
reason, it was not formally served
until early November.
The suit lists the plaintiffs as
Ridgecrest Farm, David Lewis, Ra-
mona Lewis, Frances Carney, Ed-


ward Carney, Hilda Carney,
Norman Kinsey, Judith Ross, Jerry
Wright and Howard Kinsey. It lists
the defendants as the County Com-
mission and the Tallahassee Karting
Organization, LLC.
The suit argues that the racetrack
is inconsistent with the county's
Comprehensive Plan. It seeks to
have the court invalidate the special
exception the commission granted
the development and to keep the
county from issuing a development
order.
"The Go-Kart racing facility is not
an agricultural use and therefore not
contemplated in the Comprehensive
Plan's definition of the
agricultural-5 designation," the suit
contends.
-It further alleges that county offi-
cials failed to adequately notify
nearby property owners of the hear-
ings, as required by the Develop-
ment Code, and that the developer's
application was not notarized, as re-
quired.
The Tallahassee Karting Organi-
zation wants to construct a go-cart
racetrack on a 98-acre tract off Big
Joe Road, some five miles east of
town.

Applications Sought For


'Step Up Florida' Relay


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

In preparation of the second an-
nual "Step Up Florida, On Our
Way To Healthy Living Relay",
Jefferson County Health Depart-
ment Chronic Disease and Health
Promotion and Education Coordi-
nator Marianne Goehrig continues
taking applications for the Feb. 18
event.
The kick off for Step Up Florida
will take place at the FMB parking
lot at noon, with participant regis-
tration beginning at 11:30. During
the kick off, the Step Up Florida-
A Proclamation will be read and
remarks will be made by Monti-
cello Mayor Julie Conley.
Applications are sought from
anyone who can walk, run, jog, bi-
cycle, roller blade, skateboard or do
any other type of physical activity
to take part in the event.
All of Florida's counties will join
with state agencies, non profits and
community organizations during
the month-long event.
Designated as a relay, partici-
pants along four routes will pass a
"fitness flag" from county line to
county line.
The passing of the flag will begin
with runners and bicyclists at the
Leon/Jefferson County line on
County Road 142 (Lake Road), and
go for 11 miles to the One Stop
Center on US 19 North in Monti-
cello.
The bicyclists will continue
southbound for 11 miles on US 19
to Capps, while walkers and run-
ners will continue down US 19
South, one half mile to the Farmers


(Continued From Page 1)
Kendrick said, expressing the preva-
lent view. "I think rural counties are
going to benefit."
Following is a samplings of the
speakers and the issues raised:
*Sheriff David Hobbs asked the
lawmakers to support the hoax gun
law, which would provide enhanced
penalties for individuals using a toy
gun in the commission of a robbery.
He also asked that the legislators
continue the state funding of juve-
nile centers, instead of putting the
burden on counties.
Tax Collector Lois Hunter asked
for help in getting the county the ap-
propriate authority to issue underage
identifications -- something she said
three other counties were presently
'doing.
"A lot of people coming into the
county want ID cards for their chil-
dren," Hunter said.
She said repeated efforts on her
part to get the authority had proven
futile.
School Superintendent Phil Barker
saw cause for optimism in the gov-
ernor's budget, particularly with re-
gard to the proposed increases for


and Merchants Bank parking lot.
Members of the various JCHS
clubs and organizations will walk
on the side walk from the old high
school, eastbound along US 90 to
the FMB parking lot and members
of the Monticello and St. Phillip
Boys and Girls Clubs will walk
down the sidewalk, westbound
along US 90 from the Farmers
Market to the bank parking lot to -
converge with the other two routes
that are also meeting at FMB.
Jamie Rogers of Jamie's Body
Works will lead a warm-up and
stretch session at 12:20 and at-
12:30, Conley and Rogers will lead
a walk from the FMB following the
sidewalk down US 19 South to
where the sidewalk ends.
Walkers and runners will con-
tinue to carry the flag from the end
of the sidewalk on US 19 south-
bound to just north of I-10.
Bicyclists will carry the flag from
the intersection of US 19 and US
27 throughout the southern portion
of the county, including Wacissa,
to the Jefferson/Taylor County line
at the Aucilla River on highway 98
for, the final hand-off 'to' Taylor'
County.
Law enforcerfient will be escort-
ing all participants to ensure their
safety.
Goehrig said that physical activ-
ity events will also be occurring at
locations in the county that are not
on the specified relay route.
These include HMS students par-
ticipating in an aerobic warm-up at
the FCAT Blitz at 8:30 and 4-H
Club members will be hiking and
cleaning the nature trail at JES that
morning.
For further information or to sign


sparcity and transportation funding.
But he worried that the funding
for the summer reading supplement
program might be in jeopardy, given
its absence from the budget.
Todd Watkins, representing the
Jefferson County Health Depart-
ment, asked for continuation of a
$103,000 grant the department has
been receiving for the last three
years and for $250,000 to purchase
the TMH building next door to the
clinic.
He said the funding from grant
was used for everything from diabe-
tes control to the indigent pharmacy.
He said the TMH building was
needed for expansion of the depart-
ment, which had outgrown its origi-
nal facility.
Byron Barnhart requested funding
for the continuation of what he
termed a so-far community sup-
ported initiative to help children im-
prove their academic performance.
"We're asking for money," Barn-
hart said, continuing with a meta-
phor. "We're asking for a straw to
make a brick and we'will bring you
the brick next year to show you our
progress."

Monticello Post Office Carrier
James McDaniel was presented a
Service Award last week for 35
years of service.
McDaniel began his career with
the post office March 12, 1973 as a
distribution clerk in Tallahassee.
After approximately 18 months, he
transferred to Monticello.
He began as a part time/flexible
clerk and carrier and served in that
capacity for ten years, before be-
coming the regular carrier on city
route one in June 1984, which he
has worked ever since.
"I know most of the people along
the route by name," said McDaniel.
"We do have some new ones mov-
ing in from time to time."
He added that he thoroughly en-
joyed his job. "The Lord blessed
me with a good job and good peo-
ple to work with," said McDaniel.
"I couldn't have asked for anything
better."


He begins his day at the post o
fice lining up the letters in the flat


and any parcels and certified mail in
the order of delivery, from the first
stop to the last, on the route.
He said the process usually takes
him about two hours and he spends
the next six hours on the road de-
livering the mail, and happily greet-
ing people as he drives by.
McDaniel said he may be consid-
ering retirement at the end of the
year. "My daughter, Linsey Wash-
ington of Pinetta, FL is expecting
my first grandchild in April. I just
may retire ,and go down there so I
can take care of the both of them."
He concluded that he was one
very happy and excited grandpa-to-
be.
McDaniel and his wife, Linda.
also have a daughter, Kellee, at-
tending NFCC who expects to
graduate this year.

Burn Awareness


Week Feb. 6-12


The Shriners, members of the fra-
ternal organization that operates 22
Shiners Hospitals for Children
throughout North America, are urg-
ing people to take necessary precau-
tions against burs related to hot ob-
jects and hot foods, especially dur-
ing the 2005 Bur Awareness Week,
February 6-12.
"Although Shriners Hospitals try
to educate people throughout the
year about bum prevention, during
Bum Awareness Week we focus on
a particular type of bum injury,"
said Raoul L. Frevel Sr., President
and CEO of the Shriners of North
America.
"This year, we are urging children
and parents to stay away from hot
objects and hot foods. These are
things children come in contact with
each day and the burs are prevent-
able."
The electric iron and the curling
iron are two common hot objects,
contacted by young children.
According to the Consumer Prod-
uct Safety Commission (CPSC), out
of a total of 13,700 contact burs as-
sociated with electric irons, more
than 11,000 were kids under 15.
Many young girls have also re-
ceived bums on their ears from us-
ing curling irons. In fact, out of
16,000 curling iron burs, more than
10,000 involved children under 15.
Other hot objects that can cause
bum injuries include ranges, ovens
and microwaves.'
According to'the CPSC, more than
18,000 range bums, 3,400 micro-
wave bums and 8,000 oven bums
were associated with children under
15.
Shriners Hospitals offers the fol-


lowing tips to keep children safe
from bums from hot objects and hot
foods:
*Do not allow your children near
stoves, hot oven doors, hot barbecue
grills, heaters or other hot appli-
ances, such as curling irons and
electric irons.
When cooking, use the back
burners and turn handles inward.
Never place space heaters on
cabinets, tables, furniture or the like.
Never use heaters to dry clothing or
shoes.
Keep appliance cords away from
the edge of a counter, where a child
can pull the appliance down.
Create a "no zone" or "safe
zone" area around the stove and
oven for the children about a 5-
foot perimeter distance. Children
must stay outside of this zone.
When barbecuing, keep an eye
out for kids who want to pull them-
selves up for a better view of the
grill-the whole thing can topple
over.
S* 'Use grill lighter fluid sparingly.
Unplug and turn off electric or
hot items after use.
Keep hot food and beverages
away from children.
Known as the experts in pediatric
bur care, Shriners Hospitals oper-
ate four burn hospitals in Galvestin,
Cincinnati. Boston and Sacramento.
Through intensive research and
state-of-the-art clinical care, a
burned child's chance of survival
has more than doubled since the
Shriners first opened the burn hospi-
tals in the mid-1960s.
Much of today's research now fo-
cuses on improving the quality of
life for bur survivors.

Opinion & Comment


Moms' Influence Not Foraotten


"Put your jacket on, son, you'll
catch a death of cold!"
I smiled as I listened to the mother
of a six year-old remind him about
his jacket as he headed out to the
backyard swing.
I smiled because some things
never change. Fifty odd years ago or
so, my mother was telling me the
same thing.
In fact, my guess is most;of us re-

starving in China."
"Don't run. You'll fall and hurt
yourself.",
"Remember your manners."
"Remember to put the toilet seat
up when you..."
The influence of mothers is a
powerful thing. It's passed down
from generation to generation.
When I was single, I asked a fe-
male coworker's help with a dish I
was trying to cook.
She carefully explained what in-,
gredients I needed, and how I was to


cook them.
When I asked her why I was to do
something a certain way, she
replied, "I dunno. That's how my
mother always did it."
What about those fantastic recipes
that are passed down from mothers
to daughters over several genera-
tions?
Some of them have peculiar
names that mean something only to
family members. "Ma's Soup."
"Mom's Junk." "Mother's
Casserole."


My mother used to make a deli-
cious tomato beef soup with a recipe4
that came from her mother.
My mouth waters as I think about
it. I
I am convinced there is a special._
place in heaven for mothers.
Once while waiting in a doctor's
office I saw a mother carry her-
young son around for hours. He"
must have weighed at least 80
pounds.
He was sick and she gave him the'
only comfort she could.
I remember thinking she was a.
candidate for that special place in
heaven.
As the New Year unfolds, it"
wouldn't be a bad idea to remember
those admonishments from mothers.
Truth is, they made good sense.
Wi may be in the cyberspace gen?,
eration, but putting a jacket on when,
you go out into the cold is still a
pretty good idea.
So is wiping your feet, shutting off,,
the lights when you leave a room,,/
and remembering your manners at p
all times.

will be busy every Saturday from 8
a.m. until noon," Bamhorst said.
Faculty in the UF/IFAS College of


Agricultural and Life Sciences tai-
lored the distance program to meet
the needs of extension agents and
teachers in the public school system,
including courses for improving
technical skills and classroom teach-
ing methods. In addition, there are
courses in program development
and adult education designed for ex-_
tension agents.
Distance education courses are of-
fered during the semesters per year,
and participants register for two
courses each semester.
"We split the classes each semes-
ter, so our students take one class at
a time, eight weeks per class," My-
ers said. "Because teachers and ex-
tension agents are so busy, they find
it easier to concentrate on just one
class at a time."


Instead of completing a thesis, .,
each class members must submit a l'
final project at the end of the two- :t
and-one-half-year program of study.
Myers said the first class, which -'
begins in January 2005, has 19 par- C'
ticipants, including 4 extensioni'i
agents and 15 high school teachers. 3
Future classes will have a maximum""
of 20 participants. "Members of'W
each class will move through the r
program together, building a net-
work of support that will help them C"
in their courses and in their profes- .
sional careers."
Students are required to visit the'
UF campus in Gainesville twice -
once for orientation before classes '
begin, and again at the end of the
degree program when they present_.
their final projects to their class-
mates and professors.


Avoid Homework Battles


Is homework a battle each night?
Do you spend endless hours helping
your elementary or middle school.
child with homework?
If your child has learning or atten-
tion problems, it's likely you and
your child have faced such chal-
lenges- SchwabLeaming.org asked
Diana Browning Wright, M.A.,
school psychologist and parent, to
share her perspective and strategies
for !managing assignments
effectively-which can be of great
help to you and your child.
Start by making sure your child
understands what the assignment is
and the directions for completing it.
Next, find out if she has learned
enough at school to do the assign-
ment on her own.
If you child has problems in either
of these areas, schedule a confer-
ence with her teacher to develop a
home-school communication


System.
One example would be an assign-
ment sheet that the teacher reviews
with the child and sends home for
the parent to read and sign off on.
For some kids, a small desk where
supplies can be stored is the best
place to do homework. In other
homes, the kitchen table may be the
best place.
Wherever your child works, you
should be able to check to see if
she's sticking to the task, especially
if she has problems with concentra-
tion, and be able to offer encourage-
ment.
For some kids, right after school is
the perfect time to do the work be-
cause the assignment is fresh in their
minds. Others need a break before
they can tackle more school work.
Sometimes team sports, a parent's
work schedule, or other activities in-
terfere with doing homework imme-


diately after school. With your
child's input, you may need to de-
velop two plans: one for the usual
day and one for unusual events.
When you agree on the plans, write
them down.
If your child has problems focus-
ing on a task, writes slowly, or
needs more tine to understand con-
cepts, homework can take a lot
longer. No wonder she protests, tries
to delay, hides the work, or doesn't
turn it in at school! Sometimes just
your sympathy can help.
Be sure the amount of time she's
expected to work at home is appro-
priate for her age. Learn about your
school's homework policy for each
grade level.
By keeping track of how long it
really takes your child to do her
homework, you'll have specific in-


formation to share with her teachers.
If the amount of time exceeds the
school's homework policy. Meet
with her teacher to discuss what ac-
commodations might be made.
Encourage your child to talk to
you about what she finds hard or.'
confusing. Listen to her ideas onr
what would male homework easier. :
Help your child learn effective
study strategies, as is appropriate for-
her age.
Model and help your child learn
good organizations and time man-;
agement skills.
If assignments seem endless,-
break them into smaller parts.
Let her choose a pleasurable ac-
tivity she can do immediately fol-
lowing homework, e.g., talking to a
friend on the phone. Make sure the
activity is one she chosen so it moti-
vates her to finish the work.

Annie Mae Hatchett
January 1907-January, 2005
Watching her friends pay their last
respects at Sardis Church, I did not
see a single tear. I asked, how can
This be? She was a person who was a
role model for pioneer women, both
in the settlement of Florida, and as
an educator.
She began teaching at 15, was an
assistant principal in Miami, at 17,
whose determination earned both
her BS and MS at FSU, while run-
ning a household as the mother of
two, cooking, cleaning, canning,
curing meat, milking a cow, tending
hogs, chickens and a garden.
She was a midwife for many and
retired, when Dr. Hunter moved to
town. She said she did not want to
.be his competition.
I first met Annie when she was 37,
and looked 27. She was my wife-to-
be's sister. I saw at once she was
strong willed and determined, and
remained so to the end.
Now she and I crossed more than
crosses in a Catholic Church, as will
happen when: strong .'.illed people
butt heads.
I tried to get her to write a book
about her early teaching
experiences, during the 1030's, dur-
ing the depression.
She told how she arrived one hour
early to cook (for no extra salary)
government 'commodities,on a pot
:bells wood stove, for her students'
lunch.

Since the quilting club was
formed, members have donated the
proceeds of their quilt raffles to Fire
Rescue, Boys and Girls Club, the
Library, and now to the Humane So-
ciety.
The Quilter's have not yet made a
decision about which group will re-
ceive the proceeds of the raffle of
the North Carolina Lilly Quilt, when
it is completed.
In related news, some 600 Florida

In later years, she took girls home
bathed them, cut their hair, and pro-
vided new' clothes and shoes.
A prominent student relates how
he received his first white shirt from
her, so he could be in his class pro-
gram.
At the insistence of Principal John
Haynes, she studied and earned a
degree in Specific Learning Dis-
abilities and became a pilot teacher
for the State.
She would visit her pupils at
home with their parents. She tells of
a child who, When he saw her pull
up to his house, ran and picked up a
school book and began to read.
His mother was so excited! "Mrs.

Hatchett, my boy can read," she ex-
claimed.
She said that all of the aches and
pains she endured teaching at this
level were made worth it by this one
event.
Annie, your determination taught
a lot of children to read and write,
more than 1,500 in 37 years.
Not bad for a girl raised in a log
cabin in Eridu, FL. You convinced
me you could do anything you set
your mind to do.
I could never thank you enough
for all that you gave me, and your

up there organized, so you may now
rest in the Big Sleep.
I love you for being you.

Precautions For Home


Chemical Safety Outlined


RAY CICHON
Managing Editor

In conjunction with Hazardous-
Materials Awareness Week, Feb.
23-29,. Chris Floyd, emergency
services director of the Capital area,
provides information about home
chemical safety.
Some chemicals which are safe,
and even helpful in small amounts,
can be harmful in larger quantities,
or under certain conditions, Floyd
said.
Citizens may be exposed to a
chemical in three ways: breathing
the chemical, swallowing contami-
.". -


nated food, water or medication, or
touching the chemical or clothing or
items contaminated by the chemical.
Floyd said the most common
home chemical emergencies involve
small children eating medicines.
Taking hazardous materials out of
sight eliminates up to 75 percent of
all poisonings in small children.
In the eyent of accidental poison-
ing, call the Poison Control Center,
or 911. Follow their instructions
carefully.
Avoid mixing common household
chemical products, such as ammonia
and bleach, which can create a toxic
gas.
Read directions and ventilate area


thoroughly, if so instructed.
Some products should be used
with gloves and eye protection to
avoid chemical contact.
Non food products should always
be stored tightly closed in their
original containers for identification
and instructions for use.
Never smoke while using house-
hold chemicals.
Don't use hair spray, cleaning so-
lutions, paint products or pesticides
near the open flame of an appliance,
pilot light, lighted candle, fireplace,
wood burning stove and the like.
Invisible vapor particles in the air
could catch fire or explode.
Spilled chemicals should be
cleaned up with rags, sealed in a
plastic bag and disposed of with
household trash.
Buy only as much of a chemical as
needed, and buy a fire extinguisher
that is labeled for A, B, C class
fires, and keep it handy.

Ethel Merman and was the biggest
Broadway hit of her career.
Clineman is known far and wide
for her theatrical talents, and local
audiences will recall her production
of Shakespeare's "Much Ado About
Nothing," staged at the Opera House
in the early 90's.
Local students have often per-
formed under Clineman's direction,
and some, such as Ken Jordan, have
gone on to study theatre in college.
More than 100 students comprise
the cast and Clineman is known for
her ability to coax stellar perform-
ances from her players.
The story of Annie Oakley con-
cerns a lovable, illiterate girl, who
over the course of the play, grows
into a dignified and wise young
woman.
The love story between Annie and
Frank Butler is charming and famil-
iar, as Annie joins Buffalo Bill's
Wild West show and soon her act
surpasses that of her man.

commitment last week with North

full baseball scholarship. He will
play as an infielder.
"We're all proud of his accom-

not only on the field, but in the
classroom, and in the community.
This has been a dream of his for a

The Jefferson County high school
soccer team fell to a 4-12 season
after losing their last two games.
The Tigers fell to Taylor County,
9-1 and to East Gadsden, 5-0, how-
ever, game statistics were not avail-
able at press time.
The Tigers began hosting district
pay Monday evening and played,
their first game against John Paul
II, but statistics were not available
at press time.


Athletic Director and varsity
baseball coach Ray Hughes con-
gratulated Sherrod. "His hard work
and dedication have paid off," said
Hughes. "He's a fine young man
and a hard worker. I'm glad to be
able to see him get the opportunity
to play at the next level."
NFCC Coach Steve Givens said
that Sherrod was about to venture
into a whole new part of his life.
"From what we've seen and heard
of him, he's prepared for these
changes," said Given. "We're
thrilled to have someone of his
caliber in our program."


If the Tigers win, they will face
off against Port St. Joe, 5 p.m.,
Tuesday.
The. final district game will be
held Thursday to determine the dis-
trict champions.
Playing for the Tigers will be Ed-
wardo Barren, Brian Brock, Jason
Kirkpatrick, Marcus Larry,' Alex
Lingle, Jashaun Moore, Malcolm
Norton, Tony Roberts, Jesus Rosas,
J. 'D. Shiver, 'Keith Silcio, Jon
Sneed and Trevor Swiggard.
Jack Pitts will not be playing due
to injury.


He added that the Warriors at-
tempted a three-points shot at the
buzzer to send the game into over-
time, but the shot was a circling
rim shot.

One spectator recalled that when
Sherrod was in the sixth grade, he
had stated that he would one day
play for the Braves.
Sherrod said he wasn't sure about
the pros, but, "I just want to play
baseball as long as I can," said
Sherrod.
He hasn't thought much about
what he will study, or which career
he will pursue, but he is tinkering
with the idea of possibly being an
athletic/sports trainer.
"I just got to take it one step at a
time," said Sherrod. "I will do
whatever God tells me to do."
ACA has been in the final eight
teams in the state for the past two
years and on both occasions, Sher-
rod was voted the MVP and he has
been a starter .on the varsity team
for the past four years.
Last year, Sherrod pitched a 6-4
season. He batted .494, hit nine
doubles, one triple, eight home runs
and 39 RBI's. He was on base at a'
percentage of .688.
In his sophomore year, he batted
_.462, pitched a 9-1 season and had
an earned run average of 1.8 per
game.
Hughes remarekd that as a fresh-
man, Sherrod immediately began
pitching for the varsity team, pitch-
ing and batting with impressive sta-
tistics. However, these were not
available at press time.
Sherrod is the son of Jimmy and
Debi Sherrod.

New Business Aims To Help


Potential Home Owners


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

S Home Ownership Action Plan
(HOAP), Inc. recently became a
new buisness here, when Guy and
Sharon Garrett relocated the busi-
ness here from North Carolina.
They report that they are really
excited to be here and they like the
Monticello "peace of living" al-
ready.
The business officially opened
this week and is located at 150
West Washington Street (on court-
house circle next to Edenfield's).





"

,,. .. ,


HOAP, Inc. allows people to
build, buy or sell a home for less.
than $1,000 down.

Guy Garrett said the market here
is drawing people from Tallahassee
and that the real estate values are
going up.
He said that he and his wife
wanted to live in a rural community
and they were familiar with Monti-
cello because their son lives in Tal-'
lahassee.

"We have the sense that this area
is becoming a growth area," said-
Garrett.





V.


He said that what causes most
people to have problems with be-
coming home owners is having to
come up with a large down pay-
ment and through the HOAP pro-
gram, anyone can become a
homeowner.

"There is a huge market of people
renting who want to buy, but they
do not have the typically large re-
quired down payment, and that's
what this program is geared for,"
said Garrett.

For further information call 997-
0021.
