Within a few more weeks, motor-
ists will no longer be able to travel
east on West Dogwood Street.
Acting on the recommendation of
the street 'committee, the City
Council on June 7 voted unani-
mously to make the street a west-
The street committee, however,
never addressed enforcement of the
one-hour parking limit, which it dis-
cussed at its meeting and indicated it
would bring before the full council
on June 7.
City Superintendent Don Ander-
son said Tuesday he expects his
crews will begin putting up the ap-
propriate signs on Dogwood Street
within the next week or so.,
He said part of the work will in-
clude-painting 30-degree angle park-
ing spaces on both sides of the
The idea is to eliminate left and
right turns from Dogwood onto US
19 -- a potential source of accidents
-- and at the same time relief some
of the parking problems in the
Advocates of the conversion argue
that the action is long overdue. Op-
ponents, onr the other hand, see the
move as a first step in a concerted
effort to reroute other city streets.
The change is supposed to be for a
120-day trial period. Based on the
public reaction, the council will de-
cide whether to make the change
In other action, the council voted
to reject the bids received on the bi-
cycle trail and re-advertise.
The reason for the action: the low
bidder failed to meet specifications
and the next lowest bid was some
$180,000 over budget.
The trail, which has been in the
works for about six years now, will
extend 2.1 miles from Nacoosa
Road on the south to Rocky Branch
Road on the north.

, County commissioners on Tues-
day began hearing from department
heads and others on their budget
needs for the coming year.
Appearing before commissioners
with budget requests for the 2005-
06 fiscal year were Sheriff David
Hobbs, Health Department Director
Kim Barnhill, Planning Official Bob
Arredondo, Emergency Manage-
ment Director Carol Ellerbe, Exten-
sion Office Director Larry Halsey
(also acting director for the Grants
Office), and Julie Conley and Ron
Cichon, director and chairman re-
spectively of the Economic Devel-
opment Council (EDC).
Commissioners asked the same
basic information of each presenter:
the amount of the requested increase
and the justification for the increase.
The budget for the Sheriffs De-
partment shows an increase of
$490,551, from $2,226,334 last year
to $2,716,885 this year.
Hobbs said the increase is needed
to hire' two additional deputies, a
dispatcher and four female correc-
He said the additional personnel
on the law-enforcement side are
needed to maintain the present level
of service, given the increasing
population. He said the additional
personnel on the correctional side
are needed to allow for the housing
of female inmates here.
The department presently has 18
law-enforcement officers (including
Hobbs), with 10 of these dedicated
to road duty. The increase would put
12 deputies on the road.
On the correctional side, the four
additional correctional officers
would increase the personnel from
13 (including the jail administrator
and two part-timers) to 17, with
seven of these female officers.
Hobbs told commissioners it takes
$90,000 to hire, equip, and put a
deputy on the road. That includes

Colorful Local Character, Movie & Stage Actor, Dies At 87
Senior Staff Writer
Edd "Guy" Thomajan, 87, long-
time resident of Monticello, died
alone in his house Tuesday.
An only child and a lifelong
bachelor, Thomajan had no family.
He was preceded in death by his fa-
ther and beloved mother.
He died, as he lived, on his own
terms: an eccentric and self-
described "free spirit".
To the world, Thomajan often pre-
sented a gruff exterior. He was con-
trary, combative and plainspoken to
the point of offending.
But to the few who knew him
well, he was a sweet, courtly and
generous man -- a gentleman in the
best sense of the word, with a deep
understanding of human nature and
a surplus of worldly sophistication.
Thomajan was born in a small
town in Massachusetts of Armenian
descent and grew up in a tough
neighborhood in Brooklyn. His fa-
ther's death at age 14 forced him
early into the labor force to help
support his mother, a duty he ful-
filled to her dying day. He joined
the Army at the start of World War
II and saw action in India, Burma
Returning to New York after the
war, Thomajan got re-involved in
the theater and eventually worked
his way into the movies, appearing
in such well-known films as Miracle
on 34th Street, Panic in the Streets,
Breaking Point and the Pink
He was also stage manager for
such original Broadway plays as A
Street Car Named Desire, Sweetbird
of Youth, and Sundown Beach,
working under the directorship of
the late Elia Kazan.
Among his friends and acquain-
tances, Thomajan counted such ac-
tors and actresses as Zero Mostel,
Paul Muni, Marlon Brando, Paul
Newman, Marilyn Monroe, David
Niven, Peter Sellers and Audrey
Hepburn; also playwrights Tennes-
see Williams and Arthur Miller:
and novelists John Steinback and
Tiring of northern winters, Tho-
majan moved to south Florida in the
60s and became director of the
Southern Theater of Miami. Among
the productions he directed there
were Hedda Gabler, Antigone, Dolls
House, Enemy of the People, The
Crucible, Mother Courage, Love
Letters and View from the Bridge.
Thomajan moved to Monticello in
the mid 80s, attracted by the mild
winters here and the convenient dis-
tances to California and New York,
where he still had contacts.
He proceeded to built an A-frame
house in the woods single-handedly,
a task he was still in the process of
completing at his death.
To see him driving around town
in his rattletrap truck, work clothes
and often unshaven state, some may
well have mistaken him for a ne'er-
do-well. But in truth, he was a col-
orful and unconventional character
who lived most comfortably in the
world of books, ideas and art
Thomajan became housebound
several months ago, the result of a
back injury that left him incapable
(See Actor Page 2)
EDD THOMAJAN, right, talks with Sheriff
David Hobbs following a legislative delega-
tion public hearing at the Opera House ear-
lier this year. At the time, Thomajan was
already suffering back pains from his injury.

Kim Barnhill is featured in the cur-

healthcare article headlined

Bullock said the show is planned
to be comparable to thliose of years
past. He is considering repeating
the "Shenandoah" feature, along
with other displays.
Ground displays are planned and
recorded music will be chosen for
its appeal to various age groups.
The aerial display is planned to
span 30-35 minutes.
As always, Bullock has created
new displays, especially for the
event, and sometimes coordinates
music with the display to under-
score the theme.

be on hand selling hamburgers,'
hot-dogs, chips, drinks and roasted

'Old Glory' Tribute I John Phelps, left, in Feb., 1989. L-R;
Timely For July 4th. Opinion & Comment
Flag waving is never more appro-
priate than on our national holidays,
especially the Fourth of July. What
the Flag of the United States of
America really means has been ad-
dressed by Milton Caniff, the late il-
lustrator, whose famous adventure
cartoons have inspired patriotic
young Americans for decades.
Caniff's tribute to Old Glory, writ-
ten in the. 1960's, is titled "You Are
The Flag." It goes like this:
You've been aware that bits of
cloth, stitched into ensigns, are the
symbols of the vibrant youth of
other days, who answered when the
burden fell on them to carry free-
dom's torch another step ahead of
apathy and fear; when avarice or de-
spair became a threat to what had
been achieved by toil and earnest
seeking to improve.
. It now seems easy to assume that
you'd have rallied to the newborn
colors flown at Bunker Hill and in
the cold of Valley Forge, but ago-
nizing choice divided men of'de-
cency at every moment in the awe-
some sequence of travail which
faced the colonies and spawned a
way of life unknown before Patrick
Henry spoke our invocation in a
voice which thunders down the
The Battle Flag Dixie cannot truly
tell how deep the chasm in that
phase of glory and defeat so close to
home: Yet from the clash of broth-
ers came the hopeful bastion of a
breed alone in conflict with a world
of blind obedience to power. As free
men falter in far places, now the
Stars and Stripes loom larger as the
dike of hope against the tides of red
which pound our shores.
Under this mantle grew the Reeds
and Mayos in the healing arts.
Washington and Lincoln pioneered
in government, native bom and
grown. Business produced a Came-
,gie and Ford, Elliot and Einstein
flowered in the fields of education.
Carver and Salk took science routes
to triumph and renown. The Wright-
sand Glenn broke bounds of air,
then space. Edison and Bell gave
voice and ear to all mankind while
worship, free from fear, found ha-
ven here, allowing Mather and Cab-
rini rights unknown in old worlds
In this still vast, rewarding land,
where, in the midst of wails of ad-
vantage and decay, there yet arise
unshackled men who scoff at whin-
ing odds. We are a people of our
own design and purpose, young
enough a nation that the atrophy of
dismal portent has not cooled our
zeal .,.. Hence, in this blooded her-
aldry there lie unfinished segments
of a scene of long horizons, past and
future; then arid how.
You'll hear the weasel words of
harpies bending to the blow of tem-
porary hurt, but when the going's
tough, think back on all the young
Americans, much like you, who
passed the test when bleakness
dulled the future of their land. The
tattered banners symbolize how well
they stood and held against the flood
which never fully stopped, nor ever

Girls In School Lift Nations
What's good for girls turns out to
be good for their nations and the
whole world: countries making
girls' education a priority.
According to research by Save the
Children, the progress seen in coun-
tries such as South Korea and Thai-
land that made these investments in
the 1950s demonstrates how provid-
ing a quality education for girls can
help to break the cycle of poverty
and improve the health of their
families for generations to come.
When educated girls become
mothers, they tend to have fewer
children, provide better health care
and nutrition for their children and
are more likely to send their chil-
dren to school.
Educating girls also contributes to
lowering rates of child mortality,
preventing the spread of HIV, com-
bating poverty and promoting politi-
Yet while total school enrollments
have risen recently in every region
in the world, the difference in boys'
and girls' enrollment rates continues
to be significant.
In all, about 58 million girls of
primary school age are not in school
and many girls who enroll in pri-
mary school leave after just a year
or two of education.
There are many reasons for girls
to attend school but here are the top
1. The more time girls spend in
school the more likely they are to
grow up to be healthy, well-
nourished and economically em-
2. Girls' education leads to in-
creased income both for individu-
als and for nations as a whole.
3. Educated girls marry later and
are more likely to use voluntary
family planning to delay and space
their births, and are more likely to
send their own children to school,
4. Education gives girls self-
confidence and practical skills.
5. Girls' education is a powerful
and proven investment, says Save
the Children's State of the World's
Mothers 2005 report. (NAPS)
Laptop Could Show Vital Signs
BY AARON HOOVER
University of Florida
The cameras and MP3 players are
fun, but the next wave of add-ons
for cell phones and laptops may help
users keep track of their health.
A University of Florida engineer
has built a working prototype for a
small, portable system that can
monitor a person's breathing and
heart rate automatically via wireless
signal, with no need for cords or
plugs. The goal is to make it easy
for people to check their own vital
signs, and then transmit them in real
time to medical personnel through a
cell phone or Internet connection, all
with little more than a press of a
"The initial idea is that elderly
people who may have difficulty get-
ting around they won't need to go
to the hospital or the doctor's office
every time they need a checkup,
they can just send in their data and
talk to the doctor," said Jenshan Lin,
a UF electrical and computer engi-
neering associate professor who pio-
neered the technology with
colleagues at Stanford University
and the University of Hawaii.
The system is a fresh development
in a growing trend aimed at tapping
the latest technology to improve
health care, widely acknowledged as
an important solution to rising
health care costs. Drivers of the
trend include increased research
funding from the National Institutes
of Health as well as the emergence
of private companies seeking to
capitalize early on a new market for
the nation's growing elderly popula-
tion, experts say.
Arye Rosen, a professor of bio-
medical and electrical engineering at
Drexel University in Philadelphia
and a National Academy of Engi-
neering member, said the Lin
group's system is at the forefront.
"I believe, from the point of view
of monitoring patients, they are
pushing the envelope. They are do-
ing very important research," he
Lin and his colleagues first de-
scribed the system, developed while
Line was at Bell Labs, in two Insti-
tute of Electronics and Electrical
Engineers papers last year. Since
then, he and two graduate students
have revamped the prototype, im-
proving its range and sensitivity. He
has submitted a paper on the latest
device for presentation at a biomedi-
cal engineering conference in China
later this year.
The current version is housed in a
cigarette-carton-sized metal box, out
of which sprout two bright blue
wires holding fingernail-sized anten-
nas. The box's key innards: a minia-
turized Doppler radar.
High-frequency waves broadcast by
the radar bounce off a person, scan-
ning the in-and-out movement of the
chest and more subtle, but also de-
tectable, motion of the heartbeat
against the chest wall.
Hardware and software developed
by Lin and his students then trans-
late the return signal to breathing
and heart rate, creating an EKG-like
image on an oscilloscope or laptop.
The system is accurate within
about nine feet, more than adequate
if installed on laptop or cell phone.
Lin said he plans to shrink it to
about the size of a deck of cards,
and that there is no outstanding
technical reason cell phone or laptop
manufactures couldn't miniaturize it
further. He also said the system.
which transmits only 1 micro watt
of radio frequency power, would
add an insignificant load to laptop
and cell phone batteries and poses
no threat to human health.
Remaining challenges include up-
grading the hardware and software
to enhance its resolution so multiple
heartbeats can be detected and dis-
tinguished simultaneously, Lin said.
Lin said the system may have

Barnhill asked the county to con-

county's total contribution to

Arredondo told commissioners that

mands on their time.
Commissioners instructed both
Arredondo and Bullock (who '.' as

Other comments about the com-
bined meetings include:
"If combining the meetings don't
work, we can always change it

"We can set the meeting for the
third Monday of each month,"
added George Carswell.
'We can use the first portion of the
meeting as the Board Meeting,
brainstorming and getting our pa-
perwork together for the Member-
ship meeting," said Caroline
Carswell. "The general public can
attend the Board meeting portion of
the meeting and during the member-
ship portion of the meeting, they can
address each of the issues."
Members agreed that the idea was
worth researching and that if a re-
view of the bylaws permitted them
to do so, they would try holding
combined meetings every month.

contribution of $48,603. That breaks
down into an additional $1,627 for
Emergency Management and $425
for Veterans Affairs.
She said the increases are needed
to defray the cost of travel and to
provide for a three-percent across-
the-board pay raise for employees.
As with the Health Department,

van for the 4-H Program.
lie reminded commissioners that a
few years back, he cut his depart-
ment's budget 25 percent in keeping
,with their request. The increase, he
said, would put his budget at the
level it would have been, had the
cuts not taken place.
AM for the Grants Office budget,
Halsey promised to work up a draft
once the board determined the hier-
archical makeup of the department,
which the commission is in the
process of restructuring.
Conley and Cichon made the final
presentation on behalf of the EDC.
Conley told commissioners the or-
ganization needed $49,500 to do its
job. She said the $49,500 repre-
sented an increase of $34,500 from
the $15,000 the county contributed
"What we're presenting to you to-
day is what we need to tun our op-
eration," Conley said. She is EDC
Commission Chairman Skeet Joy-
ner thought the request reasonable,
provided the money was used to
fund the salary of a director who
would oversee three programs. The
three programs, he said, would be
economic development, the bed tax
(which the county hopes to imple-
ment via referendum in 2006), and
enterprise zones, which the EDC is
working to create.
"We can fund one director with the
request here," Joyner said. "The
thought is to take one person and let
them wear three hats."
Once the revenues started coming
in from the bed tax, it would more
than make up for the initial contri-
bution, Joyner said.
But Conley cautioned that the bed
tax wasn't a done deal. It still had to
be approved by voters. And even
then, the monies raised had to be
dedicated to tourism promotion, she
Cichon said he wanted to address
the philosophical underpinnings of
the discussion. For four years, he
said, the EDC had been kicked back
and forth between the city and the
county, with nothing resolved.
Meanwhile, the EDC had had to tin
cup the business community for
funds to keep the operation running,
"Somewhere, we need to have
some political will that says we be-
lieve in this and will commit to it,"
Cichon said. "Either we're going to
seriously fund economic develop-
ment or we're not. We either get in,
or get out. Otherwise, we need to
disband the EDC board and return it
to the county."
"I don't think we need to consider
disbanding," Joyner said quickly,
putting an end to the discussion.
Commissioners explained to the
petitioners that the process was in
the early stages of development.
They promised to get back with
each petitioner once the state's pro-
jected revenues were made available
'and they had a better idea of the
county's financial standing.

Fire Safety Tips For July 4
Fire Rescue and State Fire Mar-
sha'l Tom Gallagher urge citizens to
think about fire safety, as they make
the July 4 weekend plans.
Safety tips include the following:
When using outdoor grills:
*Check the tubes that lead into the
burner for blockage from insects,
food, or grease, and use a pipe
cleaner to clear any blockage.
*Check for gas leaks, following
manufacturer's instructions, if gas is
smelled when the grill is connected
to the LP gas container.
If a leak is detected, immediately
turn off the gas, and don't attempt to
light the grill until the leak is re-
*pCheck grill hoses for crackling,
brittleness, holes, leaks, or any sharp
*Move gas hoses as far away as
possible from hot surfaces and drip-
ping hot grease. If hoses can't be
moved, install a heat shield to pro-
*Never use a grill indoors. Keep it
at least 10 feet away from the house
or any building.
*Never bum charcoal inside of
homes, vehicles, tents, or campers.
Charcoal should never be used in-
doors, even if ventilation is
*Check cooking, heating, and
lighting equipment, to be sure it is in
good repair. Read instructions care-
fully and obey any warning labels.
Use flame-retardant tents and
sleeping bags. Keep tents and
sleeping bags away from all flame
*Never bring a stove, lantern, or
candles inside the tent. Tell children
to keep a flashlight handy, if they
are afraid of the dark.
*Place stoves and campfires away
from the tent. Extinguish all fires
before going to sleep.
*Make sure that the stove, heater,
or lantern is stable and will not tip
over while it is being filled, or in
*Use caution when storing or
transporting fuel. Some stoves re-
quire that the reservoir be emptied
to avoid leakage while carrying. Use
safety cans to transport fuel.
Gallagher states that the use of
fireworks is illegal in Florida. "If it
launches, or explodes, it is illegal,"
When using sparklers:
*Use sparklers and other legal nov-
elties on a flat, hard surface. Do not
light them on grass.
*Use sparklers in an open area.
Keep children and pets at least 30
feet away from all ignited sparklers.
*Light only one item at a time, and
never attempt to relight a dud.
*Don't use any unwrapped items,
or items that might have been tam-
*Keep a fire extinguisher, or water
hose on hand for emergencies. It's a
good idea to drop used sparklers in a
bucket of water.

She could not take care of him,
and could not afford the medication
for his thyroid problem.
"She told me that if I didn't take
the cat, she was going to have her
neighbor take him in to be euth-
nazed," said Lairsey.
"He's had a rough life and I could-
n't let him be put to sleep, so I took
him," she added.
She takes him to the vet as neces-
sary, and provides the daily medica-
tion for the cat.

shown much positive improvement,
and that with the care, his weight

can't keep him and are trying to find
just the right home for him," reports
Lairsey. "He's an only cat, and we
have other cats.
Wooji will require medication for
the remainder of his life. "We will
continue paying for his medication
if we can find him the right home,"
said Lairsey. "The money has noth-
