City Council To Take UP

The business traffic circle being
proposed b, the Chamber of Com-
merce is now in the hands of the
city's street committee.
Following the Local Planning
Agency's (LPA) discussion of the
proposal last week, Police Chief
David Frisby, acting as chamber
president, presented the proposal to
the City Council on Tuesday night.
"We feel the city is desperate for
additional parking spaces," Frisby
told the council. "We think this con-
cept will provide it."
Frisby reiterated that the proposal
was only a concept, and in no way
cast in stone. He conceded that the
proposal had a few minor problems,
but nothing that couldn't be worked
opt. He maintained that the overall
proposal was sound.
Still, it would be up to the council
ultimately to decide the viability of
the proposal, he said.
"This is a concept," Frisby said.
"Take it all, or take none of it. These
are only ideas on paper. We are not
committed to any one thing."
Mayor Julie Conley opined that
the issue would no doubt require
professional guidance, preferably
from experts in the design of such

anyone at the, chamber or on the
City Counicil or the Local, Planning
Agency had the qualifications to de-
sign such a system.
She suggested that the city might
want to take advantage of the exper-
tise of student in the appropriate
'disciplines at Florida State Univer-
- sity or the University of Florida.
Councilmen Brian Hayes, who
with Councilman Gerrold Austin
forms the street committee, agreed.

it is a key factor in what makes us
different, diversity is .about much
more than race. Michael Aamodt,
professor of psychology at Radford

and tolerating differences in others."
Those differences can be as obvi-.

more intrinsic, such as our religious
beliefs, or politics. Each defines

But Not For Better

Sports, like everything else we hu-

"culture," a set of values and prac-

It's not that American sports have

sports alone do not teach character .

On the other hand, 'tundies have
found the use of ingra'.iating Lehav-
iors to be effective in influencing
performance ratings, he said.
Complimenting supervisors or co-
workers and agreeing with their
opinions may not be as dishonest as
it would appear; some people are
simply more agreeable by nature,
In order to ensure they get the
best-qualified applicants, though, re-
cruiters should strive to get more de-
tailed information from prospective
job candidates rather than simply ac-
cepting comments that are designed
to please, he said.
"A certain level of agreement and
trying to get along is fine, but I
think the interviewer needs to be
careful that there's substance behind
the style," Judge said. "There are
questions that can test that. For ex-
ample, if you asked an applicant,
'Have you broken a rule?' That may
be a way to test whether a person is
agreeing with everything that is said
or is just an agreeable person."
The results, showing that ingratia-
tion tactics have such a strong effect
during the interview process, raise
the question about whether busi-
nesses are really looking for people
with their own ideas.
"Probably if you were to ask most
managers, 'Do you want "yes" peo-
pie?' They would say, 'No, I want
people who disagree and represent
themselves,"' he said. "But if you
look at what they actually mean,
you get a different picture."
National Food Check Out Day
To Be Observed Feburary 7
By February 7, the average Ameri-
can will have earned enough income
to pay for the eifire year's food sup-
ply, and state agriculture leaders are
encouraging Floridians to remember
the efforts of the farmers who make
this feat possible.
Jefferson' County has a rich agri-
cultural heritage, and we still de-
pend on agriculture as an important
part of our economy.
"Americans enjoy the safest, most
abundant and most affordable food
supply on earth," Florida Agricul-
ture Commissioner Charles H.
"Based on US Department of Agri-
culture Statistics, it takes just 37
days for the average American to
earn enough disposable income to
pay for his or her family's food sup-
ply for the entire year."
Food Check Out Day is a celebra-
tion of the bounty from America's
farms and ranches and how that
bounty is shared with American
consumers through affordable food
prices, said Carl Loop, president of
the Florida Farm Bureau Federation.
"Compared to other expenses fac--
ing America's families, food is a
bargain. While Americans must
onl\ work 37 days to pay for their
'yearly food supply. Last year they
had to work 101 days to'pay their
More than 24 million American
workers, representing 17 percent of
the total US workforce, produce,

slightly less than two percent of the

Agriculture and timber sales in

JES FCAT Study Session
Draws Good Turnout
More than 30 families attended the-
Math FCAT Study Session for third
grade students and parents, held
Thursday, Jan. 20, at Jefferson Ele-
mentary School, by the third grade
Students were accompanied by ei-
ther parents or an older sibling.
Teacher Carol Purvis reviewed
test skills that parents could work on
at home with students.
Some of the skills have yet to be
presented in class, but they are sim-
ple enough that parents or siblings
can reinforce them at home.
Many of these skills involved
larger vocabulary words such as
"congruent" and "similar."
Teachers are hopeful that some of
these students may achieve a Level
'4 or 5 on the FCAT in Math.
"We spent the first semester'teach-
ing a solid foundation for third
grade mathematics," Purvis said.
,'Now we are reinforcing these skills
as we target specific FCAT tested
skills in the classroom."
During this evenings study session,
Teachers Terri Clark, Judy Carney,
-and Mary Roberts met with parents
to sign AIP's as well as assisting
parents and students with work-
sheets, and other materials.
Refreshments of popcorn and
soda were served.
"We are very pleased with the
number of parents who are inter-
ested in taking the extra steps to
help their children achieve higher
scores on the FCAT," said Roberts.
There were many positive remarks
made by parents and smiles from
students as families left the elemen-
tary school shortly before 8 p.m..
It made for a very long day for
many involved, but Carney said that
she believed it was worth it. Clark
added "I am very encouraged by the

JCHS BoyS Fall To

The Jefferson County High
School boy's varsity basketball
team fell to an 8-16 record after be-
ing slapped down by John Paul II
for a 66-42 loss.
The main reason behind the Tiger
loss, a large number of turnovers
said Coach Omari Forts.
In the first period, the Tigers led
11-10, and at the end of the first
half, they led 29-25.
In the third period, the Tigers
scored a mere seven points to John
Paul's 12, to bring the score to 37-
36, John Paul's lead.
The fourth quarter sealed the fate
of the Tigers..John Paul scored 26
while holding JCHS to nine points.
Demario Rivers led the charge
with 18 points, five rebounds, five
turnovers; Fabian Wilson, eight
points, four rebounds, four assists
and seven turnovers.
Tim Crumity, eight points, five
assists,one turnover, freshman Lu-
cious Wade, eight points, two re-

Goal keeper Keith Silcio had 24

Despite Saturday's inclement
.;weather, the turnout and games for
the Recreation Youth Soccer Pro-
gram, went well.
Coach Phil Barker said it was
-wet, cool and there was a light driz-
zle, so player attendance was af-
fected. "Everyone didn't show up,"
said Barker. He added that when
the seventh and eighth graders
played, there was however a good
S "In the second and third grades,
we only had 8-9 players, so we
modified the rules and played half
the field rather than the full field,"
Barker said that because fewer-
children came to play, all the mem-
bers of each team present were able
to play at one time rather than wait-
ing their turns on the sidelines.
"We'd let them play for a while,
give them a break for a couple of
minutes, and then let them go back
in," he explained.
There are two more weekends re-

Barker said they are looking for-

for the youth.
Teams one and two will play at 9

Host Families Sought

City Clerk Emily Anderson
stressed that many host families are

cyclists participating in the annual

in the area who would be interested
in providing housing for the cyclists
for one or two nights during the

bathroom facilities, with food op-
Housing must be in a relatively
close proximity to downtown Mon-
"While it is not anticipated that a
fee could be charged for the use of
private homes, acting as a host fam-

the world," said Anderson, who is

Monticello was a stop on the tour
in 2002, and this'year, Monticello
was chosen as the staging area for
the event. Ride participants will be
arriving on Friday and Saturday,
March 18 and 19 and depart on the
tour the morning of March 20.
After the week-long, 300 mile
tour, the cyclists will return on Fri-

Heidi Copeland, Family and Con-
sumer sciences Extension Agent,
reminds area women that Feb. 4 is
National Wear Red Day.
Red is worn to raise awareness
that heart disease is the number one
killer of women, of special signifi-
cance because Jefferson County is
number one in stroke and number
three in heart attack related deaths
in 67 counties.
One in three women dies of heart
disease. But heart disease can also
lead to disability and a significantly
decreased quality of life.
Statistics show that less than half
of the female population knows
that heart disease is the leading
cause of death for women.
Women don't take their risk of
heart disease seriously, or person-
ally. They often fail to make the'
connection between risk factors,
such as high blood pressure and
high cholesterol, and their own heart disease starts to rise.

Even those who have heart dis-
ease can improve their heart health
and quality of life. Talk to your
doctor, find out your risk and take
action to lower it, Copeland urges.
Church Site Ready For Foundation
Members of the Lamont Baptist
Church have trucked, some 150
loads of fill to the building site, and
plan to begin pouring the founda-
tion for the church, as soon as the
permit for same is issued.
Spokesman Rodney Boland said
all other site preparations have
been completed and the permit is
Spokesman Gerald Bailey said the
building committee has decided to
construct a 7,000 square foot struc-
ture made of decorative block that
is pre-finished and requires no
painting or upkeep.
He added that the church will seat
approximately 135 people and an
attractive fellowship hall has been
drawn into the plans.
Members have finalizing the fin-
ishing touches such as types of ap-
pliances, windows and floor
coverings to be used.
"We expect to see a lot of pro-
gress very quickly," Bailey said.
"We're thinking about holding
Wednesday night community din-
ners at the church once it's built."
He added that people have al-
ready begun, volunteering for the
church's finish work when the con-
struction is complete, people from
community churches, organizations
and residents. "It's not unusual to
see 40 men down there at one
time," said Bailey.
He concluded that members are
maintaining their patience and are
hanging together well and strong,
"They can see the finished product
just down the road."
