INSTALLATION of the replacement pipe in
the dam at the north end of Lake Micco-
sukee is expected to be completed within a


month and a half. At that point, the contrac-
tor will begin on the emergency spillway
just west of the pipe. (News Photo)

Lake Dam Getting Costly Fix


Project Estimated To

Cost About $1 Million


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

Dam repairs being undertaken by
,the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
'servation Commission (FWC) at.the
-north end of Lake Miccosukee are
'expected to add up to about a $1
:million when completed.
The repairs entail the replacement
,of a 50-year-old, 84-inch diameter
:pipe that sprung a leak in recent
'years. The pipe allov. s for controlled
Drainage of the lake.
' The repairs also call for construc-
'tion of an emergency spillway just
west of the pipe being replaced.


As Michael Hill, FWC fisheries
biologist explained it, absent re-
placement of the pipe, the leak will
continue to enlarge. And eventually,.
the dam will collapse, causing an
unintended draw down of the lake,
he said.
The pipe was originally scheduled
to be replaced last May, with the
work.expected to last a couple of
months. But the series of hurricanes
that swept through the area in early
fall, combined with engineering dif-
ficulties and an expansion of the
project, caused the schedule to be
pushed back. Hill expects the pre-
sent phase of the work will be com-
pleted by April.


One major- difficulty,' he ex-
plained, is that the repairs are being
done while the lake is full, which
creates an element of risk. From an
engineering point of view, he said,
the project would be much easier
and cheaper to accomplish if the
lake were dried.
But given that the last draw down
was only a few years back and the
benefits of that effort are just begin-
ning to kick in-- in terms of in-
creased fish and waterfowl popula-
tions -- Hill said a draw down was
never seriously contemplated.'
"We didn't want to undo the good
of the last draw down," he said.
"This is an important fish and water-
fowl lake."
That meant that before any repair
work could begin, the area had to be
stabilized via the introduction of a
wall of interlocking sheet pilings


driven 25 feet deep.
"The water's 10 feet deep at the
pilings," Hill said. "That represents
tons of pressure. Without the
pilings, I-beams and braces, the wa-
ter's strong enough to push this
whole thing out into the basin."
Hill said the stabilization and re-
placement of the pipe will cost
about $400,000, with the Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection
paying for the stabilization and the
FWC doing the work.
Following installation of the pipe,
the next step will be to construct a
concrete spillway west of the pipe.
The new spillway will replace the
existing spillway, constructed east
of the pipe in 1990. Cost of the lat-
ter project is expected to be about
$600,000.
The concrete spillway allows wa-
ter to overflow into the basin when


the lake fills quickly due to torren-
tial rains, thus relieving pressure on.
the pipe and on other parts of the
dam.
"When the water comes up fast, it
will flow over the top of this dam,"
Hill said. "We want the overflow di-
verted to the concrete spillway, so it
won't wash out the dam."
The problem with the existing
spillway is that water got under the
concrete and undermined the struc-
ture. The new spillway will have a
concrete wall that extends to the
bottom of the lake, thus preventing
water from getting underneath the
concrete and eroding the foundation.
Hill said it may be necessary to
draw down the lake a couple of feet
to construct the spillway.
"That option is being explored," he
said. "The lower the water, the safer


it is when you're working on the
dam."
Given the safety issue, why were-
n't the repairs done when the lake
was drawn down a few years back?
That would have been the ideal
time to do it, Hill said. Unfortu-
nately, the money for the repairs
wasn't available then, he said.
He called the repair of the dam a
well worth expense, given the lake's
importance as a fishing and water-
fowl recreational area. Ironically, he
noted, the dam would have never
been built today, given the present
thinking that natural systems should
remain in their natural state.
In its native state, Hill observed,
Lake Miccosukee was a fraction of
its present size -- some 600 acres,
versus the 6,000 acres it now en-

Local Democrats Get Tips


On Being More Effective


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer
.A newly revitalized Democratic-
Executive Committee (DEC) got
some pointers Tuesday night from a
former top executive of the party on
how to become a more effective or-
ganization.
The speaker, Tallahassee Attorney
Screven H. Watson, was executive
director of the Florida Democratic
Party from 1999 to 2000.
Looking back on his chairman-
ship with the clarity of hindsight,
Watson said he could see problems
existed in the relationship between
the state party and its local commit-
tees.
Watson essentially told the com-
mittee not to expect much in the
way of guidance or funding from
the state party in Tallahassee. The
fact was that, notwithstanding its
best intentions, the state party got
sucked up by the big races, he said.
"You hae good intentions," Wat-
son said. "But then you get into the
craziness of the campaign and it all
goes away. The local parties are
looking for money and direction and
it doesn't happen."
He said it was the nature of the


beast that 14 or, so large counties
controlled the party and the agenda.
And these larger counties tended to
be in the south part of the state, he
said.
"There's not a lot of relationship
between the party and the rural
counties," Watson said. "You can't
wait on the state party to fund you
or tell you what to do."
The best advice he could offer,
Watson said, was that local DECs
take the initiative and set their own
agendas. The rules, in fact, allowed
them to do the same things as the
state party, he said.
Indeed, there were many things
that DECs could do to help local
candidates, or help state and na-
tional candidates locally.
Among the suggestions Watson
offered: automatic phone calls,
which he said were an inexpensive
way to target known Democratic
voters and get them to the polls; di-
rect mails in support of a slate of
candidates; fundraisers geared to
specific projects; and absentee ballot
programs that educated voters to the
availability of the option (now the
rules had been changed) and that
made the forms available to voters
who decided to take advantage of
the option.


Watson said it was imperative
that the Democratic Party get back
into grassroots organizing and that
its candidates get back in touch with
ithe people, if Democrats were ever
to win elective office again.
He said the observation held es-
pecially true for north Florida coun-
ties, many of which although
overwhelmingly. Democratic in
composition, had voted Republican
in past elections.
"We're going to need a man or a
woman who can carry north
Florida," Watson said. "Our party,
"and our candidates, have lost touch
with this part of Florida. Until we
can get a candidate who can talk to
the people, we won't prevail."
About 30 people attended the
meeting, including a number of lo-
cal officials.
The DEC reorganized recently,
with Eleanor Hawkins elected chair.
The group is in the process of updat-
ing its bylaws (last revised in 1984),
creating a Web page, and in general
setting up a more viable and visible
presence in the county.
Hawkins announced Tuesday
night that the group now has an of-
fice, compliments of George Car-
swell. The office is located at 290

City Approves Shuttle Agreement


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

The City Council last week ap-
proved an agreement with Big Bend
Transit Inc. that opens the way for
reestablishment of a shuttle service
here.
"I'm comfortable with the agree-
ment," City Attorney Bruce Lein-_


back told the council. "Big Bend
will prepare the invoices and the
city will disperse the funds. It puts
no other obligation on the city."
The agreement calms city offi-
cials' concern that the partnership
would open the city to a lawsuit. It
does this by indemnifying the city
from any liability that may result
from the service, which could begin
as early as March 1.


The city essentially will serve as a
conduit for the Department of
Transportation (DOT) monies that
will partially fund the operation. For
its service, the city will retain one
percent of the DOT funds.
As Ted Waters, a manager for Big
Bend Transit, explained it, the DOT
requires that a public entity sponsor
the project.

Local Businesses

Ready For Influx

Staff Writer
Mayor Julie Conley urges local.
restaurants, merchants, churches,
civic groups and nonprofit organi-
zations to begin preparing for the
"Bike Florida 2005: Red Hills To
The Sea Tour", scheduled to begin
March 18, which will begin and
end here.
Most of the riders will camp at
the Old High School site, and some
will stay in local hotels and bed and
breakfast facilities, and some in lo-
cal homes.
"This event will have a tremen-
dous impact on our local
economy," said Conley. "Equally
important, it will give us an excel-
lent opportunity to showcase Our
Town's charm and the Southern
hospitality of its resident," she said.
Many of the group will be looking
for meals on March 18 and 19. The
City will have volunteers stationed
at the registration site to distribute
informational brochures, including
a listing of local eateries.
"We will even hand out menus, if
they are provided in advance (at
least 1,000 copies)," said Conley.
She added that if owners would
like to include additional informa-
tion such as specialty dishes, happy
hour discounts, and the like, that
the information should be provided
to City Clerk Emily Anderson be-
fore Feb. 15.
"This event provides a great op-
portunity for retail merchants to
capitalize on the buying power of
1,000 extra shoppers," she added.
"While some cyclists will take mini
rides around the county on Satur-
day, most will spend the day ex-
ploring the downtown area, shop-
ping and taking in the local flavor
of Our Town.
"We hope businesses will con-
sider staying open a little later on
Friday and Saturday," said Conley.,
"The average age of the riders is
53, but riders range from preteens
to seniors, so the market is huge."
Some suggestions for local mer-
chants included creative signage,
music, sidewalk displays, assis-
tance with shipping items home or
even storing them until the bikers
return March 25.
Conley said that churches, civic
organizations and nonprofit organi-
zations are urged to participate in
the event. "The aromas from ham-
burgers on the grill or barbecue in
the pit would be very hard to
resist," said Conley.
"And freshly squeezed lemonade


and home baked sweets are always
a big hit."
She added that the bicyclists are
very interested in our history and
culture and requests if plans are be-
ing made to offer a tour or a
lunch/tour combination, to advise
City Hall.
Several groups have already an-
nounced plans for the weekend, in-
cluding an Old Vaudeville Revue at
the Opera House, an Art Show at
Jefferson Arts, a juried art show on
Dogwood Street, a luncheon and

Melon Festival TO Include


Activities At Willow Pond


RAY CICHON
Managing Editor

The latest development in the-
planning of the annual Watermelon
Festival is the decision of Willow
Pond to sponsor an indoor/outdoor
event on its permises.
Clyde Simpson told the Fesival
Committee, Monday, at its monthly
meeting, that Willow Pond would
offer an event, Thursday, June 9,
which would have activities for both
children and adults.
While details are yet to be final-
ized, potential activities include a
barn dance, and hayrides, games,
watermelon seed spitting and the
like. Co-chairs Betsy Gray and
Mary Frances Drawdy will meet
with the Simpsons at Willow Pond
to discuss activities further.
The festival opens Thursday, June
2 with the Kickoff Dinner, and con-
tinues through Saturday, June 18.
In other festival news, staff from
Hospice will be on hand during the
car show, which expects to show
some 100 vehicles, and sell Hospice
T-shirts at the event.
Altrusa will sell ads for the Festi-
val Booklet.
Deadline for submission of art"
work for the festival booklet cover
is March 1, with the design to fit,
vertically on a half sheet of 8 X 11-
paper.
It was decided to limit sponsor-
ships of the Queen Pageant to $100,
which will help offset the cost of the
event.
This is a change from the former-
$150, half of which was returned to
entrants.
Pageant officials are also consid-
ering ideas for fundraisers to take
place at the pageant.
Entrants in the parade must be
decorated with a watermelon theme.
Drawdy reported that City Police-
do not have the funds to pay over-
time and provide officers for crowd
control. She explained that in the


past these funds came from a grant
which has since expired.
Because of the union, officers are
not allowed to donate their time, .
Drawdy said.
She also said that a donation was
received of $500 towards the esti-
mated cost of $750 for local officers .
to provide festival coverage. fora B
Fundraisers are planned to gener- 0 L &
ate the remaining $250. forYol
The committee is also investigat- a
ing the possibility of using auxiliary
officers from area units, as these are
able to volunteer their time, Drawdy-
said.
The need for crowd control and to
keep parade entrants moving along
requires numerous officers.
Festival subcommittees will meet
5:15 p.m., Feb. 28 and the Chamber,
and the Festival Committee meets
5:15 p.m., March 7.

Gl Bill Serves


Veterans' Needs


Although, it has been 60 years
since President Franklin D. Roospe-
velt signed "The Servicemen's
-Readjustment Act," popularly
known as the GI Bill of Rights. the
-loan guaranty and education pro-
grams established to benefit return-
-ing World War II veterans are just
as important today' for the newest
:generation of combat veterans re
turning from Afghanistan and Irag.
Legislative changes throughout
"the years have expanded GI Bill
-home loan guaranty and education
.programs administered by the De-
panrment of Veterans Affairs (VA).:.
S These changes continue the fed-
:-eral government's investment of bil-
lions of dollars in education and
-training for veterans that helped cre-
"ate America's middle class and
-transformed America into a nation
of homeowners and college gradu-
ates.
. Nearly 21 million veterans arid
their families have received more
:than $77 billion in GI Bill benefits
for education and training since
1944.
The current VA education benefits
;program is known as the Montgom-
ery GI Bill. It offers education pay-
ments for an unprecedented variety
of educational experiences such as
:traditional college- :d-and technical"
!school programs, flight schools, cor-
respondence classes,;
apprenticeships, licensing and certi-
fication tests, and on-the-job train-
ing.
Today. VA and Congress are ex-


miningg ways in which the GI Bill
can respond to veterans' modem-
dayj home ownership needs.
'The first 'VA loan, guarantee
h helped retired World War II Army
Captain Miles Meyers buy a home
in Washington, D.C., on November
17, 1944. Since. Capt. Meyers ob-
tained his loan, approximately 17.7
million veterans and active duty
members of the armed services have
taken advantage of the program.
Private sector loan funds amount-
ing to about $851 billion have been
made available to veterans, the vast

Communication Issue

Not HOSpitals' Fault


-Dear Editor:
This letter is to clarify information
reported in the Monticello News,
Jan. 28; 2005.
The communications problem de-
;ives from regulations requiredby
the Federal Communication Com-
mission.
All hospitals were required to
change their frequencies, Jan. 1;,
2005. Tallahassee Memorial Hospi-
tal was under the impression that all
Emergency Medical Providers were
aware of the radio frequence
change.
The change affected several coun-
ties, in addition to Jefferson County.
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital
only did what was required of them,
without the intention of excluding
any Emergency Medical Agencies.
Larger counties which have per-
sonnel that only take care of com-
munications, and attend meetings
throughout the state, were aware of
the frequency change. .
Small rural counties that do not
have the abill'y to have someone
represent them at away meetings,
were unaware of the frequency
change.
' There was never intent to blame
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital or
Capital Regional Medical Center for
the communication problem.
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital
and Capitil Regional Medical Cen-
ter have tried to work with us
through this problem.

mental health clinics where children
are diagnosed based on subjective
questionnaires, instead of given
proven educational solutions. This
fact was substantiated by a report
from the President's Commission on
Excellence I Special Education,
which found that 2.4 million chil-
dren had been diagnosed with men-
tal "disorders" and placed in Special
Education, when in fact these chil-
dren simply had not been taught to
read.
Due to psychiatric influence, par-
ents have been reported to Child
Protective Services and charged
with medical neglect for refusing to
give their child a psychiatric drug
such as those currently under inves-
tigation for causing suicidal reac-

with "medical neglect" for refusing
psychiatric treatment despite the
fact that there is no scientific proof


that there is anything wrong with the

Take Steps For internet Safety,


s 's an unfortunate reality that the
e Internet is simply not-always a safe
place.
The Internet is a shared space, a
virtual world of incredible beauty.
However, just as in the real world,
on the Internet, there are threats to
your security.
It is vital that you take steps to
protect yourself, your family, your
information and your technology.
Just as you lock your doors at
night, if you consider the facts about
online security, you'll recognize that
you should take a few precautions.
-- Top 10 Tips for Staying Safe On-


1. If there are children in ehe
home, protect them by utilizing pa-
rental control software. The Internet
is fraught with content that parents
may find objectionable for young-
sters. What's worse is that online
chat rooms can provide fertile
ground for child predators.
S2. Routinely update your operating
system to get the latest security
patches.
1 3. Utilize anti-virus software, rou-
tinely update your virus definitions
and run a full system scan at least
once a month.


4. Use a fire wall.
5. Use safe practices when using
e-mail. In particular, refrain from
opening attachments from senders
who are unknown to you.
6. Do not download program soft-
ware via peer-to-peer file-sharing
networks.
7. Disable unnecessary services
such as Web server, mail server
and/or FTP (file transfer protocol)
servers that can present an open
door to hackers. If you don't know
what these services are, you likely
don't need them to be on!
8. Be smart when buying anything


online. Only use reputable vendors
and take care to protect your per-
sonal account information by choos-
ing only vendors who offer a secure
payment process based on encrypt-
tion. )
9. Install a home router that in-
cludes NAT (Network Address
Translation). Using NAT between
your cable modem connection and
your PCs will stop incoming dat#
packets from entering your network
unless one of your PCs has specifi-
cally requested the information. This

Four Humane Society Board


Members Resign Positions


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

SFour members of the Humane So-.-
ciety Board of Directors stepped
down at the meeting Monday, cit-
ing personal reasons.
These included: Cheryl Bautisa,
Xan Holm, Kerri Kercher, and Bar-
bara Dudesman. Each will retain
membership in the Humane
iSociety.
Members stressed the importance
of trying to obtain at least three
new board members, including a
secretary to record regular meeting
minutes.
President Caroline Carswell ad-
vised that the Crazy Quilters had
donated $630 to the shelter, raised
from their latest quilt raffle. She
added that fencing had been ac-
quired and it appeared that persons
to perform the labor of installation
were available.


Jerry Sutphin advised that there
was a' resident on the Waukeenah
Highway who needed assistance.
"There's a stray out there and she's
- been feeding it several times a
week," said Sutphin. "She's bond-
ing with the dog but can't catch it.
She wants to take him home and
adopt him."
Tina Ames said the shelter could
provide a live trap and instructions
for use, to her, or if needed, Ames
would personally set up the trap for
her. Sutphin also inquired about
procedures for proper disposal of
dead animals along side county
roads.
Members were not sure of the
current policy for carcass disposal
but agreed that the decaying bodies
of dead animals were both un-
sightly and unsanitary. Sutphin said
he would discuss the matter with
Jefferson County Road Department
Supervisor David Harvey to find

new foster home, bringing the total
to 19 foster homes. She said that
more were needed and Ames
stated: "That since I've been in-

most we've had."
Martin added that currently there
are 12 puppies, two dogs and 10
cats in foster care.
Ames presented the January
adoption report. There were 24 ca-
nines and 15 felines that came in
for the month, and 11 canines and
eight felines were adopted.

adopted through foster homes, two
by foster homes, eight at Petsmart,
six at the shelter and two through

Hill St. Phillip Club's

Student Of Month


DEBBIE SNAPP
Staff Writer

Kelly Hill was named Student of
the Month, in December, at the St.
Phillip Boys and Girls Club.
Hill was born on March 27, 1989
to Geraldine and the late Earnest
Hill, Jr., and has a twin brother
Kevin.
Hill's goal in life is to become a
famous track star or, a police
officer.
When asked his reason for want-
ing to become a track star, he states,
"Because I think I have the talent
and the skills God gave me. Most
people don't use the talent God
gives them but, I do use my talents
on and off the track field, and espe-


cially in the classroom.
"I have come a very long way in
my classes and in my studies. I was-
n't doing so well but, now I am do-
ing my work and even my teachers
have told me that they have seen an
improvement in me."
He likes to run track. He says he's
very good at it and even his coaches
have told him this. He hopes to earn
a track scholarship, with the help of
his coaches.
He adds, "I know that I am not the
fastest person on the planet but, I
promise you that one day I will be."
Hill is very sure of himself, en-
joys school, and especially enjoys
his time spent at the Club.
He is active in his 4-H group and
in the activities at his church.
In his spare time, Hill likes to
sleep, sing, and talk on the phone.

Lake Dam Costly


(Continued From Page 1)
compasses. Essentially, the lake was
a grassland that periodically dried
up, he said. And it was that very cy-
cle of drying up and refilling that
kept it vital, he said.
That natural cycle is what the
draw downs try to mimic, Hill said.
Drying the lake kills much of the
aquatic vegetation that builds up
over time, allowing for the growth
of plants that are more beneficial to
fish and wild birds.
"We believe that draw downs are
our most powerful tool to revitalize
lakes," Hill said. "Ideally, we like to
do them every 10 years or so. But
any draw down in the future won't
be as extreme or as long."
One individual very happy with
the FWC's decision not to drain the
lake for the repairs is Eli Reeves,
operator of Reeves Fish Camp near
the dam.
Reeves noted that the previous
draw down played havoc with his
business, especially as extended


drought at the time prolonged the
dry period.
Most recently, the duck season --
which prohibits boats of more than-'
5 hp on the lake -- took its toll on
his business, he said. But now that:
the duck season was over, he was.
looking forward for the fishing to
pick up.
Reeves showed off a batch of;
freshly-caught speckled perch. With
the water beginning to warm, the.
speckled perch and other fish would
soon be moving, making for good
fishing times, he noted.

Local Boys and Girls Clubs are.
utilizing the Junior Staff Career De-
velopment Program (JSCDP) de-
signed to prepare youth for
leadership roles as human service
professionals or volunteer leaders.
Objectives of the program are:
to provide youth with the oppor-
tunity to participate in a comprehen-
sive career/volunteer development
program consisting of leadership
and service activities;
to provide youth with an essen-
tial guidance and support system de-
signed to help them examine the
values inherent in human service, ei-
ther as a career or an avocational
pursuit; and
to encourage youth to actively
pursue a career in the Boys and Girl
Clubs Movement or serve in a vol-
unteer capacity as an alumni mem-
ber.
SThe JSCDP brings together five
distinct programs, each designed to
facilitate job skills training, and to
help members develop a career at
BWys and Girls Club, or human
service agency.
While this program makes an ex-
pficit effort to guide Club members
toward a career in human service,
particularly Boys and Girls Club
wgrk, it also recognizes that such a
\ocational pursuit may not be realis-
tic: or consistent with the needs of
each Club member or even a major-
ity of those recruited.
SAs such, the JSCDP has been
broadened to recognize the value of
huiinan service as both a vocational
or leisure time pursuit.
-While a career in human services
may not be appropriate for certain
Club members, Boys and Girls Club

staff will guide the development of
interest and concerned youth toward
volunteer involvement in commu-
Snity service activities.
Core Components include:
*Orientation to Helping: geared to
girls and boys aged 11 to 13 and af-
fording the opportunity to experi-
ence helping others firsthand.
*Career Development Program:

opportunity to earn financial help
for their post secondary education.

ing in leadership, responsibilities in
work situations, how to conduct
oneself at work, and the importance
of a work ethic.

Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun
County Residents,
Two years ago I obtained my Florida
Dealer's License due to the frustration of
shopping for a used car. The following three
things made car shopping a big headache

*Haggling for the best price
*Having to come up with $2000 to $3000
for a down payment, taxes, title and tag
