Citizens Group Pursuing Central
Sewer System For Lloyd Area
COMMISSIONERS Junior Tuten, left, and,
Eugene Hall talk following a recent commis-
sion meeting. Tuten has been an active
member of the citizens group looking to
bring a sewer system to the 1-10 and SR-59
interchange. Hall plans to become involved
in the group. (News Photo)
:Senior Staff Writer
The County Commission last
week gave the nod to a citizens
group that is pursuing the possible
establishment of a central sewer sys-
tem and treatment plant in the Lloyd
Dick Bailar is spokesman. for the
Jefferson County Utility Develop-
ment Committee, a group that has
been meeting informally for the last
five-or-so months. Bailar told com-
missioners that formation of the
group was triggered by concerns
about the environment and eco-
He said the group worried about
proliferation of septic, tanks in
the area, which ultimately had the
potential to harm the, aquifer.
At the same time, he said, the
group wanted to encourage eco-
nomic development, which a central
sewer system and treatment plant
But the group, he said, had gone
about as far as it could go on its
own. He said the group required of-:
ficial recognition from the county if
it was to pursue state or federal
funding for any project.
Bailar introduced Bruce Balaster,
an Apalachee Regional Planning
Council (ARPC) representative who
has been working with the group to
help it identify possible projects and
Balaster spoke of "smart growth",
"enhanced capacities", "edge com-
munities" and other jargon that left
some listeners a little befuddled. But
essentially, his message was that the
county -- and in particular the Lloyd
area because of its proximity to Tal-
lahassee -- was poised for tremen-
Balaster said he was in the process
of preparing a report for submittal to
the Department of Community Af-
fairs (DCA) that would identify "a
consensus for growth needs."
He said one aspect of the study
was'to make changes to the capital
improvement element of the
county's Comprehensive Plan, as
well as to the Future Land Use Map.
Additionally, he said, the study
would identify possible policy
changes that might be required to
provide incentives and disincentives
to certain types of development.
"The aim of the project is to take
an overall snapshot of the county,"
Balaster said. "We want to take a lot
of input from different people and
figure out the best course of action
and not just jump into a simple solu-
tion for one interchange. It's a long-
term project. But it will put us in a
good position to seek grants in the

being made up of city and county
representatives, business interests
and area property owners with land
holdings that had a potential for de-

RacetracK Lawsuit Still
Pending, Lawyers Say
Senior Staff Writer
Contrary to reports of a supposed
-resolution of the lawsuit filed-by op-
ponents of Go-Kart Racetrack
against the county and the
developer, the lawsuit remains very
much in effect.
That's the word from Attorney
George Reeves, who represents the
plaintiffs: Ridgecrest Farm, David
Lewis, Ramona Lewis, Frances Car-
ney, Edward Carney, Hilda Carney,
Norman Kinsey, Judith Ross, Jerry
Wright and Howard Kinsey.
"I'm not aware of any
resolution," Reeves said Tuesday.
He said the appearance of a reso-
lution might come from the fact that
the plaintiffs had withdrawn their
challenge of the permit the Suwan-
-nee River Water Management Dis-
trict (SRWMD) is issuing the
developer relative to the wetlands.
Reeves said the decision to with-
draw the challenge was based on the
fact that once experts for the plain-
tiffs had researched the matter, they
found no good reason to challenge
"That part is over," Reeves said.
Insofar as the challenge to the in-
consistency of the Go-Kart racetrack
with relation to the county's Com-
prehensive Plan, that part was still
pending, Reeves said.
He confirmed that no date had
been set so far for a hearing of the
case. But it was not unusual for
these cases to take a long time, he
The plaintiffs filed their suit Sept.
15, 2004, shortly after the County
Commission approved the racetrack,
which is slated for a 98-acre tract
off Big Joe Road in the eastern part
of the county.
The suit named as defendants both
the County Commission and the
Tallahassee Karting Organization
LLC, the entity seeking to develop
The suit essentially argues that the
racetrack is inconsistent with the
county's Comprehensive Plan. It
asks the court to invalidate the spe-
cial exception that commissioners
granted to the developer and to stop
the county from issuing a develop-
The suit argues that granting the
special exception materially alters
the density or intensity of use on the
property to be developed.
The reason the special exception is
inconsistent with the Comprehen-
sive Plan, according to the suit, is
that it violates the restriction against
development in the 100-year flood

Grants Office To Relinquish
Food Distribution Program
LARRY HALSEY, Extension Office director,
is now also interim director of the Grants
Office. Halsey is helping lead the move to
restructure the department. (News Photo)
Senior Staff Writer
The County Commission last
week divested the Grants Office of
the food distribution program, a first
step toward the intended restructur-
ing of the department.
The action came on the advice of
Extension Office Director Larry
Halsey, who has been appointed in-
terim director of the Grants Office
until the restructuring is completed.
Halsey has been researching vari-
ous options to streamline and make
the department more efficient. The
options under consideration at pre-
sent involve leaving the department
as is; contracting certain of its serv-
ices to outside agencies; or distribut-
ing the various programs the Grants
Office administers to other county
Halsey recommended that the
food distribution program be con-
tracted to Second Harvest, a non-
profit organization that serves 14
counties in the Panhandle and that
already has a presence in the county.
Second Harvest, in fact, distrib-
utes food in the county through a
multitude of private organizations
that include churches and charitable
Commissioners estimate that the
county will save about $11,500 an-
nually by allowing Second Harvest
to take over the program. The
$11,500 estimate is based on the
number of county employees and
employees hours that are presently
dedicated to the program each year.
Halsey said it would require more
time before he could make recom-
mendation on the Grants Office's
other programs, such as SHIP and
The move to restructure the
Grants Office was prompted by the
resignation of the last director, in
combination with alleged long-
standing concerns about the opera-
"I've always had a concern with
the way the office ran," Commission
Chairman Skeet Joyner said an ear-
It was a sentiment Commissioner
Junior Tuten echoed.
"We have worked on the Grants
Office at least two times while I've
been on this board, and it's been to
no avail," Tuten said.

Be Wary Of Interest OnlyLOANS
A financial option allowing home-
owners to pay only the interest part
of their mortgage term is quickly be-
ing embraced by many home buyers
As interest rates are predicted to
rise and home values increase in
many parts of the country, loans of-
fering the Interest-Only payments
feature provide customers with a
lower monthly payment, potentially
making a home more affordable.
But, home buyers need to under-
stand the benefits and the down-
side of this type of payment fea-
ture. For example, while the
monthly payment may be lower, eq-
uity cannot grow if principal pay-
ments are not made.
Although loans like these were
available decades ago, they have re-
surfaced and garnered more appeal
in recent years, especially in high-
cost housing markets such as Cali-
fornia, Florida and New York.
If you consider purchasing a home
or refinancing your existing prop-
erty, ask yourself some key ques-
tions to determine if Interest-Only is
right for you.
Do you make monthly payments
into investments such as a retire-
ment fund that could potentially of-
fer a high return?
,* Do you receive seasonal income
or bonuses you plan to use during
the year to make principal payments
on your mortgage loan?
Are you confident your personal
income will continue to grow?
Are you confident that the value
of your home will continue to appre-
ciate over the next several years?
Are you planning to purchase a
home in a market that has witnessed
a consistent increase in home
Are you intending to move
within 10 years and expect to see
continued home value appreciation
not compensate for the lack of prin-
cipal pay down?
"IF you can answer 'yes' to sev-
eral of these questions, the Interest-
Only payment feature may be some-
thing to consider," says Joe Rogers,
executive vice president for Wells
Fargo Home Mortgage.
"But home buyers need to make
sure they give careful thought to
their individual situation, identify
their current and future financial
picture and fully understand all the
home-financing options available."
The Interest-Only payment feature'
lets customers pay the interest on
their home loan for an initial period
of time, such as seven or ten years.
Because customers are qualified
based on only the interest payment
that must be paid each month, they
could potentially qualify for a larger
Customers can make equity or
principal payments on the loan at
any time and their payment is recal-
culated to reflect the increased eq-
uity in the home.
"The best candidate for the
Interest-Only payment feature is
really the consumer who has the fi-
nancial capability to afford a full
principal and interest payment but
opts for the Interest-Only feature for
sound reasons which fit into their
overall long term financial plan,"
After the initial fixed-rate,
Interest-Only period ends, the loan
is reevaluated and a new monthly
payment is calculated.
The new payment is based on the
amount of equity in the home, the
remaining term of the loan and the
new interest rate. Principal and in-
terest payments are made through
the end of the loan term.
"While the Interest-Only payment
feature may be a good option for
some homeowners, it is not for eve-
ryone," adds Rogers. "The Interest-
Only feature is not for a home buyer
who can barely afford the house
they are buying, a buyer in a market
where home values are declining or
a buyer who tends to be a free
spender by nature."
Dog Encounters No Fun
Pete Foster has no trouble remem-
bering the dog's name: Storm. "He
was a kind of German hunting dog,"
the Pensacola letter carrier recalled.
"Seventy pounds of teeth and mus-
Foster said he was aware of the
gray Weimaraner -- and wary of him
even though "he was always in the
house." Once, in a fit of rage, Storm
had crashed through a pane of glass,
"trying to get the FedEx guy."
Storm didn't get his man that day.
All he got were lacerations and
Then, one day, Foster approached
the mailbox to make a delivery and,
"around the comer, out of nowhere"
came a fury of fur. "Like the eye of
a storm," Foster said.
Foster raised his right arm to block
the attack, then felt the dog sink its
teeth into the muscles of his hand.
The next day, in spite of medical
treatment, the wounds became swol-
len, tender and painful. "I couldn't
drive for a week and was on light
duty for another week," Foster said.
"I'm a strong person, but this has
made me even more cautious."
Foster, in his seventh year of car-
rying mail, keeps his eyes sharp and
his dog spray handy.
Former Tallahassee rural carrier
(and now Postmaster in Woodville)
Alan Ballas, also keeps his dog
spray handy. "When I go out to
check a box or see a customer, I still
watch for dogs and have the spray
ready," he said.
Ballas' caution comes from two
dog bites, one which required him to
undergo a series of rabies shots. "I
was happy when I learned they
don't stick you in the stomach any-
more." Still, the shots made Ballas
nauseated and "getting poked is no
His second close encounter with a
dog came when he was delivering to
an elderly woman who, supported
by a walker, came out to meet him
everyday. "Once she didn't come
out so I went to the door. Suddenly I
felt jaws sinking into the back of my
left leg." Ballas went down and the
Pit Bull took off. "I'm glad he didn't
stick around for more."
Ballas recommends, "always be
aware of what's around you and al-
ways, always, always keep your dog
Ann Borgwardt agrees, then adds
that no one really knows what the
experience is like until "you've seen
a dog rip away part of your flesh,
chew and swallow it."

for 11 years, Borgwardt has been
bitten so many times that other car-
riers call her hambonee."
A Rottweiler, a pack of seven Ger-
man Shepherds, a Chihuahua and a
Pit Bull are the breeds that, over the
years, have taken a bite out of her.
"I have 306 dogs on my route,"
Borgwardt says, "about 200 love
me, but the other 100 hate my guts."
About two years ago, oh a hot
August day, one of the 100 got

Citizen Says Rezoning
Will Begin Major Trend
This is in reference to your news
article "Officials Recorded Words
Come Back to Haunt Them" dated
Friday, May 27, 2005.
This amendment request for re-
zoning came before the Planning
Commission in October of 2004.
The Planning Commission asked
specific questions regarding the
public notice. The Planning Depart-
ment Official and Planning Attorney
made several statements that the
public was properly informed. At
this meeting, the Commission was
told that signs were already placed
on the site, surrounding property
owners had been notified by mail,
and it was properly noticed in the
These statements proved untrue.
The signs did not go up until after
the Board of County Commission
meeting held on May 19th of 2005.
Property owners were not notified
by certified mail until after that
meeting. A notice with a map of the
area, parcel numbers, and the
amendment information didn't ap-
pear in the paper until May 27th.
This rezoning will take in approxi-
mately 73 acres of Ag-5 (1 unit per
5 acres) land and rezone it to R-1I
land (1 unit per 1 acre), which is not
limited to only houses. So the possi-
bility goes from 14 homes to 73
homes on the same parcels with
wells and septic tanks.
This amendment for rezoning is
scheduled to go before the Board of
County Commissioners on June
16th for their approval. The meeting

and confronted Borgwardt while she
was delivering the neighbor's mail.
"I had seen the owner beat this dog
with a two-by-four," she explained.
"That dog was full of rage."
At first Borgwardt held the Pit
Bull at bay with her satchel. Then,
when she sought safety on top of a
car, the dog found an opening.
It is; a fact that the jaws of a Pit
Bull can exert 1,800 pounds of
force. This is a fact that Borgwardt
knows first hand. She knows it espe-
cially in her right hand. "When they
get you," she says, "they don't let

There are many other issues re-
garding the rezoning of agricultural
land to denser residential zoning. If
the amendment is approved, it is just
the start of a major trend. More and
more land will be rezoned without
regard to the future.
Developers will buy land, rezone it
to fit their needs, make their money,
and leave the problems for us to re-
This is paving the way for ram-
pant development to spread as it has
in the south and central Florida. We
all know the horror stories facing
the residents in those areas. If we al-
low this to continue, our County's
quality of life will disappear.
There are properties in the County
that have already been sold or are in
the process of being sold with these
intentions in mind. Developers and
large companies are waiting in the
shadows ready to pounce.
We are not against development.
We know that growth is needed for
the economics of the County. But,
growth and development have to be
planned for and managed. It needs
to be in the proper zoning and areas
allowing for it.
We feel it is important that the
public be properly noticed and in-
;formed on all issues. Steps need to
be taken to ensure that our local
government is not misled in their
knowledge and the public is not de-
ceived again. Every decision made

Roberts said that all but two of
his players will be returning next
