Dept. Makes Changes


To Salvage $50,o00 Contract


Director Says Decision

Difficult But Necessary
"It's been a very difficult six
LAZARO ALEMAN weeks," Bamhill said Monday from
Senior Staff Writer her home in Tallahassee. "I have
had to make some very difficult de-
Two longtime' employees of the cisions, but I have a business to run,


Health Department will be leaving
the agency within the next three
months, at the request of Director
Kim Barnhill.
Dan MacDonald, director of envi-
ronmental health, and Jack Stout,-an
inspector with the environmental
section, are expected to leave the
department at the end of June and
May respectively.


and I have to act in the best interest
of Jefferson County."
"I feel I'm ready to move on and
reach a new level in the environ-
mental health area," Barnhill added.
At issue, she said, is a $50,000
contract with the Department of En-
vironmental Protection (DEP) that is
in jeopardy of being lost to Gadsden
County because of alleged poor per-


formance.
If it goes, Barnhill said, so goes
another potential contract of
$30,000 with the DEP to do inspec-
tions in Perry County.
The $50,000 contract calls for the
Jefferson County Health Depart-
ment to inspect 110 petroleum tanks
here and in Wakulla County. That's
petroleum tanks at both commercial
facilities and farming operations.
"We have to ensure that the tanks
are not leaking and that petroleum is
not getting into the underground wa-
ter system," Barnhill said.
Additionally, she said, the DEP
uses the information to bolster cases
it takes to court.
The way Barnhill explained it, the


DEP approached her about a year
ago and expressed dissatisfaction
with the way the program was being
operated. She said the DEP told her
she needed to fix the problem.
Barnhill said that at that time she
conveyed the information to the en-
vironmental health staff and in-
structed it to correct the situation.
A week ago, according to
Bamhill, the DEP contacted her
again and informed her that not only
had the problem not been corrected,
but the agency was giving the con-
tract to Gadsden County.
"They informed me that the in-
spections were not being done to the
DEP's liking," Barnhill said. "They
--told me, 'we're not happy with me-


diocre anymore. We want it done
better than that.'
"And I agree. I want us to be a
source of excellence. When they
threatened to take away the contract
because it wasn't being done to the
standards, I had to make a change to
show them that I was serious about
doing the right thing. The environ-
mental health program has been
dysfunctional for about three years
now."'
Bamhill said staff from the Es-
cambia County Health Departmert
is helping her department catch up
with the inspections. She said about
90 percent of the petroleum tanks
have to be inspected annually, with
June 30 being the deadline.


There's also a possibility that a
replacement for MacDonald is al-
ready in the wings. The replacement
would also take over mosquito con-
trol, Bamhill said.
"I feel that good things are hap-
pening," she said. "An Escambia
County candidate has shown an in-
terest in the position."
As for the DEP's contract, Barn-
hill said the issue. is far from over;
notwithstanding the agency's asser-
tion that the contract "is definitely
gone" to the county.
She said she told DEP representa-
tives during a recent lengthy meet-
ing at the agency that they would
have to prove to her that the
county's didn't warrant the contract.

County To Purchase TMH


Building For Health Dept.


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

Health Department Director Kim
Barnhill may yet get the TMH
building that she has been wanting
for the last several years in order to
expand her growing operation.
What's more, the county may be
purchasing the building for her. The
county, at least, will be purchasing
the building, as well as owning it, if-
Bamhillhas her way.
As Bamhill explained it to the
County Commission last week, pub-
lic health departments across the
state are required to maintain a cer-
tain percentage of their budgets in a
trust fund for the eventuality of hav-
ing to cope with a major emergency.
But in the wake of the four hurri-
canes that struck the state last year --
and the fact that the trust fund still
retains an inordinate amount of
money -- Barnhill said lawmakers
are looking to take $30 million from
the account.
Her idea, she said, was to take the
$250;000 or so needed for the pur-
chase of the TMH building out of
her trust fund account and give it to


the county before the Legislature
grabbed the money. The county
could then buy the TMH building
and allow her staff rent-free use of
the space, she said.
Barnhill said the proposed route
was the best way to go, given her re-
search into the matter. All that it
would required, she said, was for
the Legislature to approve proviso
language that would allow the trans-
fer of the money from her depart-
ment to the county.
"With your permission, I will ask_
the Legislature to put in the neces-
sary proviso language," Bamhill
said. "The building would then be
county owned."
The one caveat, she added, was
that no guarantees existed.
"The governor can always veto
it," she said.
Commissioners approved the ac-
tion without much discussion. Barn-
hill said she would proceed with a
the necessary budget amendment to
transfer the money from the trust
-fund, preparatory to approaching the
Legislature.
The TMH building, formerly the
home of Tallahassee Memorial
Family Medicine Monticello, is next
door to the public health clinic on


US 90 West. Health Department
staff currently occupies the building
on a lease basis.
Barnhill has been trying to acquire
the building through a legislative
appropriation for the last three
years.
On a related issue, Barnhill in-
formed the commission that her de-
partment had recently received .a
$10,000 grant from the State Health
Office.
Barnhill said she wanted to use
the money to construct a walking
trail around the new portion of the
park. She said the new trail, which
would circle the 11 acres the county
is developing as a ball field, would
connect with the existing trail.
Bamhill asked the board for per-
mission to use the Road Department
to clear the designated trail route.
She said she would then use the
$10,000 to pave the trail. The reason
for urgency, Barnhill explained, was
that the money had to be spent by
mid June.
The board approved Barnhill's
request unanimously.
The importance of physical activ-
ity in the realization of a healthy
lifestyle is one of the Health Depart-
ment's abiding themes in its fight
against obesity.

Grants Office Director Cory Burke

Expecting To Leave Position Soon


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

Less than a year after accepting
the job of Grants Office director,
Cory Burke (formerly Yacovone)
has indicated to commissioners that
she plans to leave the position.
Burke, in fact, has already applied
for a state job and has received a
tentative offer, which she declined
to say more about on Monday.
Simply put, the position of Grants


Officer director "was not a good fit"
for her, Burke said.
"I'm a round peg in a square
hole," she said.
Burke declined to go into further
details about her decision, saying
that she had informed commission-
ers of her intention about two
months ago. But she said she was in
the process of preparing a report that
would analyze for commissioners
the problems she saw with the de-
partment.
Essentially, the problem is that


the department is really a housing
authority, not a grant-writing opera-
tion, Burke said.
"Ninety-five percent of my time
was spent on housing and feeding
programs," Burke said. "I spent
more time with clients than doing
research."
Not that she was demeaning the
housing or feeding programs, Burke
said. These programs were impor-
tant components of the community.
But they had little to do with grant

1,000 Bike Florida Cyclists


Arrive Here Over Weekend


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

Coordinator Emily Anderson,
reports that there were approxi-
mately 1,000 bicyclists, who spent
tithe enjoying Monticello and its
hospitality, over the weekend.
Those participating in the tour
came from a variety of places, in-
cluding one from as far away as
Alaska, and many from Ohio, Vir-
ginia, Massachusetts, and South
Florida.
-Anderson said that though resi-
dents thought the weekend cold,
most cyclists said the weather was
beautiful, compared to what they
left enroute.
"I had many positive comments
from them about how much they
were impressed and enjoyed the
food, entertainment and the bier
garten," said Anderson.
She added that there was a lot of
traffic from those traveling with the
cyclists, and a lot of foot traffic
around town.
"Many were very interested in the
Ghost Tracker tours," said Ander-
son.
:"I was really pleased," said An-
derson. "The cyclists were at lei-
sure riding around town and
wanting to experience Monticello
the way we know it," Anderson
added.
Big Bend Ghost Trackers Foun-
der Betty Davis said the Friday
night haunted tours were a little bit
slow, mainly due to the cyclists still
trickling into town and setting up
their camp sites.
;"Both tours were full Saturday
tight and they enjoyed the histori-
cal'aspect of the tours as well as the
ghostly aspect of it," said Davis.
She added that one of the cyclists
who went on the tour the night
prior, returned with photos of orbs
he had taken at both the Denham


House and the Palmer House. "He
was very excited about it," she said.
The presence of the cyclists
greatly impacted the economy, as
expected it would, Anderson said.
CO-owner of Jake's, Peter Gurr-
guis said the business was really
booming over the weekend, espe-
cially on Friday evenings and
throughout the day Saturday.
"I was prepared for them. I knew
they were coming, and I was pre-
pared," he said. "It worked out
pretty well and I'm ready for their
return next Friday."
Edenfield Hardware Co-owner
Trisha Wirick said they also experi-


enced a good sales day on
Saturday.
Employee Ken Barker added, "It
was really good, not just here but
everybody was blessed by their
visit from what I could see. There
was a lot of traffic and people were
really excited about how wonderful
it is here. They loved Monticello
and the uniqueness of it.
"This was a great promotion for
Monticello and we ought to try to
build on things like this," he added.
"I'm holding some items for them
to pick up when they come back
into town Friday and I recommend
that the merchants and restaurants-


REGISTERING BIKERS Friday are L-R: Don
and Cindy Lee, and Emily Anderson. Regis-


be ready for them when they get
back.
"While the cyclists were here,
the restaurants were rally slammed
and they should be prepared for an-
other slamming Friday from noon
and on. Some will be packing up
their things and leaving when they
get back, and some will hang
around and visit a while longer."
Anderson said that also in town
over the weekend was a PBS film
crew filming a national documen-
tary on Rural Tourist Development.
She reminds businesses that the
cylcists will return Friday.

they told me I had a.chance to keep
the contract," Barnhill said.
What's more, she said, the head of
the Gadsden County Health Depart-
ment has informed the DEP that as
long as Jefferson County wants the
contract, Gadsden County. doesn't
want it.
"We're a family in the Department
of Health," Barnhill said. "We're
not out stabbing each other in the
back."


Donald was away from his-office,
and Stout is on sick leave until May.
Staff referred all questions to Barn-
hill.
MacDonald and Stout have been
employed by the state 26 and 12
years respectively, according to per-
sonnel records.
On a related matter, Barnhill said
she had also reshuffled positions in

FHP Program Educates JCHS


Students On Safe Driving


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

Students at Jefferson County
High School students heard a pres-
entation by FHP Troopers Trooper
Daniel Jones, and Donny Pitts, who
educated students about the penal-
ties of drinking and driving, legal
limits of alcohol for both minors
and adults, and driver safety de-
vices and laws.
Students also heard about the
Breath Alcohol Test Mobile which
troopers use in cases of suspected
drinking and driving.
"We're going into Spring Break,
and proms will be coming soon as
well as graduation and summer va-
cation, and we just want to educate
the students about driving safely,"


Jones explained last week.
'"This is my community. I work
here, and live here, and I'm con-
cerned," he said.
For drivers under the age of 21
years, the legal beathalizer limit is
.02. Young drivers with that limit
or above will be held liable and
face possible license suspension. If
the stop includes a serious offense,
the young driver will be jailed.
Jones said that upon being
stopped, all troopers carry with
them a Portable Breath Test (PBT)
and the driver is asked to submit to
the test.
If the driver refuses, he/she are
held in the "B.A.T.mobile" holding
cell. The proper paperwork is filled
out and the parents are contacted to
come and retrieve their child.


Turn Off TV Week


April 25 To May 1
According to statistics, 33.9 per-
FRAN HUNT cent of the adult population (18 and
Staff Writer older) in the county are obese,
much higher than the state average
National urn off the TV Week of 19.4 percent; and the percent of

break from the television and redis-
cover other interests, including be-
coming more physically active,
reading, or spending time with
families.
County Health Department
Chronic Disease Health Promotion-
and Education Coordinator Mari-
anne Goehrig said that participating
in the "TV-Turnoff" is of special
significance to county residents.
This is true, because physical ac-
tivity is one of the number, one
listed preventative measures for
heart attack and stroke, and the
county is number one of Florida's.
67 counties in stroke related deaths
and number three in heart-attack re-
lated deaths.


For many, the week will become
the springboard to making lasting
changes in their lives, watching
less television, choosing what they
do watch more selectively, and en-
gaging in more screen-free activi-
ties.
Currently school-aged children
watch an average of four to six
hours of television every day. This
is far more than the recommenda-
tion from the American Academy
of Pediatrics of no more than two
hours per day.
Sedentary lifestyles have played a
role in the number of overweight
and obese adults and children
throughout the state and the nation.


If a serious offense is involved,
the driver may be turned over to
Juvenile Justice authorities. If the
young driver is involved with being
under the influence and causing a
vehicular homicide, the license can
be suspended indefinitely.
For adults over the age of 21
years, the driver is automatically
jailed if their level is at .08 or
above and if they refuse to take the
test, their license could be sus-
pended for 12-18 months.
Jones added that troopers also
carry a blood testing kit. "The
portable breath test measures the
alcohol level on the breath, but if
you're doing pot, crank, crack or
anything else and you think you
just got away with it, wrong," said
Jones.
"This kit tests the blood for all
substances." He added that if a
driver refuses to take the blood test,
the blood will be taken, by force if
necessary. Jones said troopers do
not take the blood, it is taken by
someone with the proper medical
training to do so, such as EMT,
paramedic, doctor or nurse.
"And if you're driving and cause
a death, you could go to prison for
5-15 years," said Jones.
He talked of open container laws
and explained that an open con-
tainer in the vehicle is a moving
violation and the driver will auto-
matically be charged, if it is not be-
ing held by a passenger, at which
point, the passenger is charged.
The students viewed a film
called, "Highway of Horror II" that
featured two inmates in prison, tell-
ing their stories of how they got in-
toxicated, caused a death and how
it changed their lives forever.
"Though the lives of these of-
fenders have been tragically
changed forever, the lives of the
victims no longer exist," said
Jones.
"The horror the offenders live
with every day cannot compare to
the horror left in the lives of the


TROOPER DANIEL JONES, FHP instructor, spoke to stu-
dents Wednesday, about the danger of drinking and driving
and the need to observe all safety laws of the road. (News

victims' families."
Jones spoke of the use of seat-
belts and obeying traffic laws. he
reminded students that a law was
passed in 2000 which states when
an emergency vehicle is stopped
along side the road, oncoming ve-
hicles are to pull over into the far
lane of traffic. "If you are unable
to pull into the other lane, they
must slow down to 15 miles per
hour below the speed limit," said
Jones. "If they don't slow down or
pull into the far lane, they can re-
ceive a ticket and get three points
on their license.
He explained how troopers don't
only depend on the breath and
blood tests, but they also perform
roadside tests including walking
the heel-to-toe straight line, closing
the eyes and putting the index fin-
ger on the tip of the nose.
They also observe body lan-
guage, look for dilation of the pu-
pils and listen for slurred speech.
During the tests, a video recording
is made to support the trooper's re-
port.
Jones will make the same pres-
entation to students at Aucilla
Christian Academy during the first
week of May, at which time, he
will also bring with him, the rollo-
ver simulator.

Opinion & Comment


A little knowledge can be a dan-
gerous thing, particularly if it's
shared by strangers.
Last year alone, almost 10 million
Americans became victims of iden-
tity fraud.
Despite increased law enforce-
ment and consumer awareness ef-
forts, consumers are concerned
about becoming a target of this
crime.
The major threat now comes from
online sources, but the traditional
offline method of theft continues to
require vigilance on the part of con-
sumers.
According to U.S. Postal Inspec-
tors, identity fraud occurs when
thieves open new accounts in other
people's names and rack up debts
on existing accounts, using con-
sumers' Social Security numbers,
bank account information, addresses
or phone numbers.
Identity fraud icnms nay spend
years--and large sums of money--
restoring their credit histories and
their good names. Some consumers
have been denied jobs or insurance
or have been arrested for crimes
they did not commit.
A recent survey indicates that the
dollar volume of crime was $52.6
billion in 2004, and much of that
cost is accrued by businesses.


"Putting the criminals in jail is re-
warding but we also have a respon-
sibility to educate consumers," said
Chief Postal Inspector Lee Heath.
Heath offers these tips to consumers
to minimize their risk.
*Don't give out personal informa-
tioh on the phone, through the mail
or over the Internet unless you've
initiated the contact or are sure you
know who you're dealing with.
*Guard your mail: Don't leave it
in your mailbox overnight or on
weekends, and deposit outgoing
mail in a Postal Service collection
-box or give it to your letter carrier.
*Tear or shred unwanted docu-
ments that contain personal informa-
tion before discarding.
*Be careful responding to e-mails
that ask for confirmation of your ac-
count information or password.
*Order your credit report annually
-and check it for errors. Nce\ federal
legislation requires credit-reporting
companies to provide a free credit
report once every 12 months to con-
sumers who request it. Get it at
www.annualcreditreport.com.
If you do become a victim, report
it to the police. Identity fraud vic-
tims can obtain an ID Theft Affida-
vit at www.consumer.gov/idtheft.
The affidavit can be sent to multiple
-merchants to dispute fraudulent ac-
counts.

TEN YEARS AGO
March 22, 1995
As expected, two proposed.
changes to the Comprehensive Plan
-- one related to the Truss Plant in
Lloyd and the other to the Jefferson
Nursing Center on US 19 North --
generated their share of objections
when the County Commission took
them up for consideration Thursday
night.
The School board recently ap-
proved an application for a $60,000
Community Juvenile Justice Part-
nership Grant.
The fund is to provide for a com-
bination of disciplinary
alternative/youth services dropout
prevention program.
TWENTY YEARS AGO

After nearly two agonizing hours
of studying seven redistricting plans,
the county commissioners decided

tary Club meeting Friday, at the Ca-
pri Restaurant, according to club
president, Tim Peary.
THIRTY YEARS AGO
March 20, 1975
State Comptroller Gerald Lewis
warned today the untold millions of
public dollars are being wasted be-
cause of insufficient safeguards on
the expenditure of state funds.


Lewis, in office only two months,
said he plans to accentuate his of-
fice's responsibility to audit all state
expenditures before they are made.
Jonathan Byrd, JCHS's high scor-
ing basketball star, and Horatio
Watkins the Tigers' tenacious court
leader, recently brought more post
season honors to their team. Byrd
captured the Big Bend high school
scoring race with his 22.6 points per

Keys To Becoming Wea


Since so many people are buying
lottery tickets trying to become mil-
lionaires, I thought it would be good
to pass on advice on how to become
a millionaire assuming the lottery
doesn't work out.
*Buy real estate on the moon.
Heaven knows it's too expensive to
buy real estate on this planet so
don't be left in the dust; get a jump
on the next land boom and call
NASA about acquiring a crater or
two before the developers do.
*Find buried treasure. Don't just
lie around on your next vacation.
Dive to the bottom of that lake,
stream, or bay and find a doubloon
or two.
Marry rich. and'or. divorce well.
Marilyn Monroe was on the right
track in the movie, "How to Marry a
Millionaire."
*Go through grandma's attic.
Dusty old paintings and discarded
trinkets sometimes turn out to be
priceless art and.antiques. It's hap-
pened before...

football team to lose! This team

broke a record by losing 46 games
in a row, so this would be a good
bet if you can find anyone who will
-bet against you.
*Find an ultra-rich family to take
you in. Better still, have hlcnm adopt
you.
*Invent any of the following:
Zero calorie, great tasting French
fries and chocolate shakes; a giant
smog vacuum; a car that turns into a
helicopter when traffic gets heavy.
*Find the lost map to the Fountain
of Youth. Ponce de Leon got side
tracked so take up where he left off.


When you find the fountain, sign a
deal to buy the land before you
spread the news.
*Learn Japanese...need I say
more?
All right, you have the keys now
to go for the million.
Listen, if this stuff doesn't work,
don't blame me. I found these won-
derful hints in the stack of releases
we get regularly.
If you try 'em and they do work,
remember that you read it here!
There are some other ways to
make a million or more and they


Ithy
have to do with athletics and music.
If you can throw a football or
catch one or hit a baseball over the
fence or play basketball like Mi-
chael Jordan, you too can become a
millionaire.
If you are a sports star you really
need very few other skills. People
go wild about you or shower you
with hero worship. Of course, this
goes on only as long as you are in
the prime of your career, then lights
go out and the applause stops.
The music industry has made
some poor people fairly rich in short
order.
What you have to do is crank out a
hit record that sweeps the charts and
you'll be on your way.
Buster Douglas,found a way to
millions. All he didwas knock out
Mike Tyson.
If sports or music isn't your thing,
go back to the first suggestions.
There's always the option of do-
ing the kind of work you do and do-
ing it well, living thiriftily, and
investing wisely. That may not
make millions, but you'll do pretty
well.


Protect Kids From Poisons


Children act fast...so do poisons!
is the annual theme for National,
Poison Prevention Week, March 20-
26, 2005, and the Florida Poison In-:
formation Center-Jacksonville
(FPIC-JAX) at Shands Jacksonville
encourages everyone to take an ac-,
tive role in safeguarding our chil-
dren from potential dangers
involving medications and other
common household chemicals.
This year, the focus of the Florida
Poison Information Center-
Jacksonville's national poison pre-
vention week campaign is to seek to
educate the public on the dangers of
accidental medication dosing errors
and how to prevent them.
According to Deborah H. Smith,
RN, Education Coordinator for the
Florida Poison Information Center-
SJacksonville, "In 2003, The Ameri-
can Association of Poison Control
Center (AAPCC) reported thirty-
four (34) fatalities in children 5
years of age or younger exposed to a
poisonous substance". "Eight (8) of


these deaths were attributed to unin-
tentional dosing errors". "In 2003,
the Florida Poison Information
Center-Jacksonville received over
990 exposure calls related to unin-
tentional dosing errors". "Eleven
percent (117) of these calls were at-
tributed to confusion with units of
measure and administration errors".
The Florida Poison Information
Center-Jacksonville offers the fol-
lowing recommendations to pro-
mote safe use of all medicationss:
*Always read the label before
each use, follow directions
precisely. If you do not understand
the instructions, call the product in-
formation phone number on the la-
bel (If using an over the counter
product) or contact your pharmacist
or physician.
*Strictly follow the recommended
and maximum dose instructions on
the package label for all over the
counter products.
*Do not use a kitchen utensil such
as a teaspoon to administer medica-


tion. These spoons are not accurate
in measuring medication doses.
*Always use an oral syringe, a
medication spoon, cup or dropper
when giving children liquid medica-
tion.
*Understand the difference be-
tween "teaspoon" (abbreviation:
tsp.)
versus "tablespoon" (abbreviation:
tbsp.) versus "milliliter" (abbrevia-
tion: ml).
*Understand that 1 teaspoon (tsp.)
=5ml or 5cc.
*Understand that 1 tablespoon
(tbsp.) =3 teaspoons or 15ml. (a ta-
blespoon holds three times as much
as a teaspoon).
*Know your child's weight if the
medication dose is based on weight.
Never guess your child's weight or
the amount of medication to give.
*Use child-resistant caps.
*Never mix medications without
first consulting with a pharmacist or
your physician.
*If your child spits out some of


the medication or vomits after tak-
ing the medication, Do not give an-,
other dose. Consult with a pharma-
cist or your physician for additional
instructions.
*Never give more medication than
instructed.
*Do not let children see you take
medication, and never refer to medi-
cation as "candy".
*After using the medication bottle
or container, make sure it is placed
in a secured location, out of search
and reach of children.

provide poison awareness and pre-
vention education to protect the well
being of children.

BY BRAULIO L. BAEZ
Chairman, PSC


The PSC has the responsibility to
set utility rates that are fair, reason-
able, and affordable for Florida's
consumers.
In addition, state law requires the
PSC to set rates that allow regulated
utilities and their shareholders the
opportunity to earn a reasonable re-
turn on their investments.
This, in turn, allows regulated

and reliable service to their custom-
ers. Therefore, the PSC must bal-
ance the needs of consumers with

and apply them in a fair and consis-
tent manner; and
*Facilitate the provision of safe
utility services at levels of quality
and reliability that comply with es-
tablished industry standards and
practices.
The PSC has rate and service
authority over the following types of
utilities:


*5 investor-owned (privately
owned) electric utilities.
*7 investor-owned (privately
owned) natural gas utilities.
*More than 1,200 privately owned
water/wastewater systems in 36 ju-
risdictional counties (to determine if
you live in a jurisdictional county,
please check our Web site).
*10 incumbent local telephone
companies.
The PSC has service authority
over the following types of utilities:
*More than 400 competitive local
telephone companies.
*More than 600 long distance tele-
phone companies.
*More than 400 pay telephone
providers.


The PSC also has limited jurisdic-
tion over the following types of
utilities:
18 rural electric cooperatives.
*33 municipally owned electric
utilities.
*27 municipally owned natural'
gas utilities.
Other notable areas subject to PSC
regulation include the following:
*Safety oversight of all types of:
electric utilities.
*Telecommunications relay serv-'


S*Unauthorized charges
telephone bill (cramming).
*Prepaid phone cards.

The Red Hats of America met at
the Monticello/Jefferson Chamber
of Commerce on Saturday, dressed
to celebrate the St. Patrick's Day
holiday.
Members decorated their hats for
the occasion in varied shades of
green. They had everything from
Leprechauns, to clover, to flowers
tucked in and dangling from their
red hats.
They wore beads around their
necks and ornate pins and jewelry
on their clothing as they enjoyed a
luncheon of Chicken and Dump-
lings served by Mary Frances
Drawdy.
Also served, in honor of the holi-
Sday, was cabbage and ham. Drawdy
made a special dessert treat for the
group, an ice cream sandwich cake.
"It was a hit," exclaims Queen Mum
'Minnie Stokley.
Old Irish tales and stories were
told by Tammie Peck and others and
.songs were sung by Fran Black,
Mary Connell, Irene Evans, and
Lois Piper, keeping the ladies enter-
tained and laughing during the
whole meeting.
One rather silly song went some-
'thing like this: "Oh the night that
Paddy Murphy died we never shall
forget. We all got stinkin' drunk that
night and some ain't sober yet. The

FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer
Howard Middle School baseball
team dropped their season opener to
Taylor County last week, 1-4.
Coach Willie Mitchell said the
Mighty Bumblebees were leading
2-1 and played a really good game
as a team until the top of the seventh
inning.
Mitchell then made relief changes
for players and suddenly, the Bum-
blebees couldn't hold their defense.
"We couldn't get the bat on the ball,
either," he said.
D'Vonte Graham pitched for 6 V2


g/


innings, striking out 12 batters, giv-
ing up one walk and two hits.
Offensively, he went three for
three with two singles and one dou-
ble.
Shayne Broxie and Arnez Am-
mons pitched the final minutes of
the game, between them, giving up
two walks and two runs.
Telvin Norton went two for three
with two singles.
Curtis Hightower went two for
three and scored the only run for the
Bumblebees.
Their next game is scheduled
against Trinity Catholic, at 4 p.m,
