REPRESENTATIVES of the local law-
enforcement community, along with repre-
sentatives of the Department of Juvenile
Justice and other state agencies, discuss
the civil citations program at the Sheriff's
Office last Friday. (News Photo)
POLICE CHIEF DAVID FRISBY, second from

citations under certain circumstances, in-

State Awards County $33,000
Senior Staff Writer
Members of the law-enforcement
community were pleased to learn
last Friday that the Department of
Juvenile Justice (DJJ) had awarded
the local juvenile justice council
$33,000 for implementation of a
civil citations program.
This is on top of the $65,000 grant
the DJJ awarded the local juvenile
justice council earlier this year for
implementation of an intervention
plan to keep at-risk youths out of the
juvenile justice system.
"This is a great thing," Monticello
Police Department Chief David
Frisby said of the opportunity to im-
plement a civil citations program
Frisby was one of several repre-
sentatives of the Jefferson County
Juvenile Justice Council (JJC) who
attended the Friday afternoon pres-.
entation at the Sheriff's Office in the
industrial park. Other JJC represen-
tatives attending the meeting in-
eluded Sheriff David Hobbs and
County Judge Bobby Plaines.
As described by DJJ officials, the
civil citations program gives law-
enforcement officers another tool to
combat juvenile delinquency. Essen-
tially, it gives officers the discretion
to cite youthful offenders, instead of
arresting them, depending on the na-
ture and the severity of the offense.
Youths handed a civil citation
must appear in teen court and per-
form some kind of community work
to atone for the offense, as dictated
by a jury of their peers. Unlike an
arrest, however, the incident is not
recorded, thus sparing the individual
a criminal record.
The idea, according to the pro-
gram's supporters, is to give first-
time misdemeanor offenders a sec-
ond, and in some circumstances,
maybe even a third and fourth
Too many times, according to
those in the law-enforcement com-
munity, an individual's future is ru-
ined because of a youthful indiscre-'
tion that results in an arrest.
"When a kid gets arrested, it's
there," Plaines said. "Even if you
seal the record, it can come back to
Among the questions that local
officials pose to the DJJ representa-
tives: could the money be used to
administer urine analysis tests;
could citations be used for misde-
meanor traffic violations; and could
the citations be issued to other than
The answer in all cases was a
"We want this to be .your
program," said Ted Tollet,. DJJ di-
rector of research and planning.
"We're offering you.the resources to.
do it your way. You tell us what you
want to do and how and we'll pro-
vide the resources."
In other words, said the DJJ offi-
cials, it would be up to the local law
enforcement community to deter-
mine if the program would incorpo-
rate urine analysis tests and if
second and third-time misdemeanor
offenders would be issued the civil

Sheriff's Department Donates
Bikes To Deserving Students
The Jefferson County Sheriffs
Department has donated a dozen
bicyclese, and a scooter to'Gladys
-Roann to distribute to deserving
:children in the community.
Sheriff David Hobbs said the bi-
cycles are for children of all ages,
large and small, boys and girls.
"These were bicycles that were
-abandoned in the community and
never claimed by their owners,"
"Rather than throwing them out,
-Lthought it would be a good idea to
kx them up and give them to some-
one who would be able to use
them," he said.
Before the bikes were ready to
give away, they required some mi-
nor repairs, refurbishing or clean-
Recently retired JCSO maihte-
nance man Leighton "Lee" Lang-
ford was asked for his service and
without hesitation, went to work,
repairing the bicycles and supply-
ing whatever additional materials
that were required.
The bicycles were then loaded
and transported to Jefferson Ele-

looking at the students, their family
situations, and whether or not they
had decent grades and stayed out of
trouble over the summer," said Ro-
ann. "I guess you could say that
it's a delayed reward."
She recalled a child she had given
a used bicycle to for the holidays.
"You would have thought that
you gave him a car," she laughed.
"He kept asking can I ride it? Can I
ride it? It didn't take long, before
he was on it and half way down the
road," she stated.
She noted that a bicycle is a form.
of liberation for-a child.
Roann concluded that she likes
the faces, excitement and reactions
of the children when they receive
something that they could orly
dream of having.
She suspected that some of the bi-
cycles may be distributed as early
as Wednesday afternoon.

Feminism's dominance of the '70s

My objection was and is not so
much with feminism as with radical
feminism. In so far as feminist argu-
ments could advance the access,
equal opportunity and legal standing
and protection of women, then I was
and am a supporter. In so far as radi-
cally feminist arguments attacked
marriage and the family, under-
mined respect for life in the womb,
unnecessarily denigrated masculifi-
ity, or promoted alternative sexual
lifestyles for women beyond mo-
nogamous, heterosexual marriage,
then I object.
Feminism is no longer the force
that it once was because its socially
healthy goals have largely been met,
and its socially debilitating philoso-
phies have left scars on the body
politic. What we need now are Men
and Women who make morally up-
right contributions for a new genera-

The Cajun dance club was at the
end of a dusty, dark dirt road. The
parking lot was full of trucks, no

moment we thought the electricians
had fooled us. Once inside though,
the music started and the food came
out of the small kitchen. We ap-
peared to be viewed with suspicion

Then I began to notice a bulge in the
back pockets of all the-men there.
I realized that they were all armed
with guns. Once they had looked us
over and decided that we were there
for the music and a nice dinner, we
were accepted and ignored. It was
an elegant sight to see. The dancers
kept their upper bodies perfectly

Music Searching through the

have a changer, only change CDs
when the vehicle is fully stopped.
Cellular Phones In the last five
years alone, nearly 300,000 drivers
have been involved in crashes attrib-
uted to cell phone use. Ideally, driv-
ers should refrain from using cell
phones. Many vehicles, such as the
Toyota Prius and Lexus vehicles
now come equipped with Bluetooth
technology, which lets your cell
phone interact with a microphone

tires contributed to more than
20,000 serious auto incidents in
2003, according to the National
Safety Council. Simply checking
tire pressure and tread wear regu-
larly can keep you from a hazardous
situation on the road.
Know Where You're Going -
Planning out your trip before you
ever get in the vehicle allows you to
focus on your driving rather than
concentrating on how to get there.
Many vehicles now feature onboard
navigation systems. Systems in Toy-
ota and Lexus vehicles allow the
driver to enter the destination's ad-

the side of the road, several men
usually come to her aid.

Stay Awake And Sober -
They've heard the tales of drunk

continue to drink and drive. Doing

should also avoid getting behind the

board before leaving the driveway
can save you time and major hassles

Study Eyes Cold Water Exercise
BY MEREDITH J. MORTON
University of Florida
Exercise in cold water instead of
warm water may increase people's
appetites, making it harder for them
to lose extra pounds, a University of
Florida study finds.
Results indicate people may con-
sume more calories after exercising
in cold water, according to Lesley
White, a UF researcher who de-
signed the study to better understand
why aquatic exercise is often less
successful than equal amounts of
jogging or cycling for people who
want to lose weight.
"It's possible that individuals who
exercise in cooler water may have
an exaggerated energy intake fol-
lowing exercise, which may be a
reason why they don't lose as much
weight," said White, an assistant
professor in the College of Health
and Human Performance. "So it
may not be the exercise itself that
causes the problem because you can
match the exercise energy expendi-
ture; rather it's the increased eating
after the exercise is over."
White said her research is not
meant to suggest that swimming or
aquatic exercise is ineffective for
building physical fitness. In fact,
water exercise is suggested for peo-
ple who are overweight because the
buoyancy given by the water makes
exercising easier for people with
joint or balance problems.
"Water exercise is an excellent ac-
tivity for many people, particularly
those with joint disorders, thermal
regulatory problems and balance or
coordination difficulties," she said.
"However, an earlier study reported
that women who swam did not lose
as much weight as those who jogged
F'or her study, published in Febru-
ary in the International Journal of
Sport Nutrition and Exercise Me-
tabolism, White tracked the energy
used by 11 UF students as they rode
a stationary bicycle submerged in
water for 45 minutes. The students
exercised in cold water of 68 de-
grees Fahrenheit and warm water of
91.4 degrees Fahrenheit. The same
students, ages 21-31, also spent 45
The study found the students used
a similar amount of energy during
the exercises, 517 calories in the
cold water and 505 in the warm wa-
ter. Students expended 123 calories
After each exercise session and
the rest period, the students were al-
lowed into a room to measure their
blood pressure and heart rates. They
were left to rest for one hour in the
same room and had free access to a
standard assortment of food of
known caloric values. However, the
students didn't know their caloric
intake was going to be measured.
"We found that during the recov-
ery period when the subjects had ac-
cess to an assortment of foods that
significantly more calories were
eaten after exercise in cold water
compared to exercise in warm water
or at rest," White said.
Caloric intake after exercise in
cold water was 44 percent higher
than exercise in warm water and 41
percent higher than in the resting pe-
riods. The students consumed a
mean 877 calories after exercise in
cold water, 608 calories after exer-
cise in warm water and 618 after

White said. Individuals should con-

over post-exercise appetite.

Dr. Rudolph Dressendorfer indi-

concerns," said Dressendorfer, an

versity of Alberta and physical
therapist. "The practical implication
of this study is that cold water tem-
perature could frustrate weight loss
by increasing caloric intake. This
study also provides some theoretical
insight to the mechanism of appetite
by Rotary International.
The goal of the Leadership Acad-
emy is to graduate Rotarians who
can take an active leadership role in
the District in the future.
Each participant is partnered with
a mentor, normally a Past District
Governor, who helps by answering
questions and directing the student
in the proper direction.
The first class was composed of
16 people selected from the District,
who graduated at the District Con-
ference this past April.
At the time of the District Confer-
ence, Muchovej was leading a Ro-
tary Group Study Exchange to Santa
Catarina, Brazil for five weeks.
The Group Study Exchange is a
program through Rotary Interna-
tional, where young professionals
visit a Rotary District in another
country, where they learn about the
culture and how their professions
are performed in that country.
The young professionals are es-
corted by a Rotarian team leader.
Muchovej was selected as leader
of this team due to his fluency in the
Portuguese language and his knowl-
edge of Rotary.
Guest speaker was Catherine Ar-
nold, the Hospice Community Rela-
tions representative for Jefferson,
Madison, and Taylor counties.
She shared valuable hospice infor-
mation and enlightened the group of
the goings on'within Hospice.
She explained that Hospice is
about care beyond cure. Hospice af-
firms life, provides expertise, and is
a special kind of caring.
She gave a description of services
offered, and listed the specialized
programs. She also offered herself
for speaking engagements, should
there be a need.

Treco Bellamy, JCHS Grad,
To Play Football For Bulls
Treco Bellamy, 2003 graduate of
Jefferson County High School, and
former outside linebacker for the
football team, wanted to further his
education so he would have a de-
cent career, but did not qualify for
a scholarship to make this possible.
JCHS Athletic Director Alfreddie
Hightower explains that a student
must achieve a specific score in the
ACT and have a particular GPA.
"But Treco fell a little short in all
categories and didn't qualify for a
scholarship," Hightower said.
When Bellamy attended JCHS,
the head football coach was Ervin
Lewis, known as a man to find
chances for the "underdogs", and
one who really cared about his
He did just that for Bellamy,
when he encouraged him to apply
at Beedley College, in Fresno, CA,,
and Lewis advised him to inquire
and apply, on the chance that he
might qualify for a scholarship.
Bellamy applied, and was
awarded a full athletic scholarship
and planned to study criminal jus-
He entered the school as a red-
shirt freshman, playing .as a first
team starter in football as a outside
linebacker. By his second year,
Bellamy was a starter in every
Through a lot of work and perse-
verance, Bellamy not only bulked
up from 187 to 228 pounds, but he
was also awarded the Student Aca-
demic Excellence Award for his
3.14 GPA, the highest on the team..
He also made team Al-
Conference that year.
Upon completion of his courses
at Beedley, Bellamy was awarded
an athletic scholarship to the Uni-
versity of South Florida, where he
will continue his studies and will
be a starting outside linebacker for
Hightower explained that in the
classroom, Bellamy is a junior,
however, on the field, he is a
sophomore, due to his first year
Bellamy said he is diligent con-
cerning his studies. "I want to go
into criminal justice, I just haven't
made up my mind in what field
yet," he added.
Bellamy said that if by some
chance, he were'to play pro ball,
that would be great.
In the meantime, "I'll be basil
cally happy sticking with my stud-
ies. I'm looking forward to getting
my degree," Bellamy said.
He said it took a lot of rigorous
work both academically and ath-
letically, to get to where'he is, "But
I'm determined to do well," Bel-
"I want to make my family
happy, especially my mom," he
added. "I went through a few
struggles during my high school
years, and now I'm making up for
He accredits his mom and Coach
Lewis, both, as being his biggest
influences. "They had faith and
they.believed in me," said Bellamy.
"Everyone needs someone who
believes in them in order to be any,
kind of a success in life, so they
can strive for their goals and be-
-come a success," he stated.
Alfreddie Hightower will once
again assume the position of Ath-
letic" Director at Jefferson County
He had served two years prior to
the arrival of Jeff Schaum, who re-
cently resigned from the District.
"When Coach Schaum was hired
for the football team as head coach,
his work schedule in the classroom
was flexible and the Athletic Direc-
tor is a very demanding position, so
Schaum was given the entire pack-
Hightower said that after Schaum
decided to relocate, Principal Mi-
chael Bryan approached him and
asked him to again take over the
"He said that we had a couple of
successful years there and that we
needed to get leadership back into
the sports program," Hightower
added. "So I agreed to try it one
Hightower is looking to
strengthen the continuity between
sports. "We don't have anywhere
near the kids we used to, but we
still have the same sports we had'
before," said Hightower.
"Most of the kids are in dual
sports, and we (coaches) have to
share so we can utilize the best ath-
letes." he added.
T-BALL Coaches of the Year
nized at the recent Recreation
The Monticello Lady Diamonds
softball team will face off against
Mayo Sunday, 4:30 p.m., there.
Coach Roosevelt Jones said he is
looking forward to a good game.
The game between the Monti-
cello Demons and Lamont was
rained out last Sunday and was re-
"I will not have kids trying to get
so involved in sports that they end
up sacrificing their academics,"
"I plan to work diligently and I
have got to keep all of the pro-
grams financially solvent. We don't
have a lot of money coming in
from out there.
"We have to be careful with our
resources and make sure we are fi-
nancially sound and still do what is
needed in all areas of all sports,
rather than dumping one in favor of
another," said Hightower. "I plan
to continue that pursuit."
The Jefferson County High
School has drawn up a four game
scheduel for its JV Football Team.
All games are at 7 p.m.
Hamilton County is slated for
Aug. 25, here; and FSU is sched-
tiled for Sept. 1, there.
Tigers face off against Taylor
County, Sept. 22, there; and in their
final game of the season, face FSU,
Oct. 6, here.
The first practice will be con-
ducted Aug. 1 and pre-season
scrimmage will be held Aug.

Healthy Weight Loss available only at
Jackson's Drug, Hoodiacol is
designed to curb the appetite, burn
fat and increase energy levels
resulting in considerable weight loss
*over time. Hoodiacol consist of 3 key
ingredients incorporated into rice
bran oil with natural flavorings, to
give it a palpable taste. In addition to
weight loss, you may see benefits for
the hair, skin and nails from the
Omega 3 and Omega 6 found in rice
bran oil. Hoodia gordonii is a cactus
found in the Kalahari Desert of South
Africa. Unsurpassed as an appetite
suppressant, it not only limits appetite
but increases the sense of satiety. This
tends to limit total caloric intake by
30-40% without experiencing hunger.
Significant weight loss should result
from such a drop in caloric intake.

Shortly before total darkness,
Town Crier Lloyd Wheeler,
dressed in the costume of the time,
approached the podium and ex-
pressed appreciation to veterans
who had served this country, their
many sacrifices and the freedom
that Americans enjoy today.
He asked the crowd to stand, for
the Pledge of Allegiance, and then
read a prayer written by George
The crowd began clapping in uni-

Following the conclusion of what
some said was the best show ever,
the streets of Monticello were lined

Wednesday morning, Anderson
said that though donations were
made toward the production, not
enough funds were raised to pay
for the production.
With some promised donations
still to be collected, some
$1,775.85 had already been col-

Anderson. Donations are still be-

wanted in Brevard County, Florida.
"The suspect was located and ar-
rested on the Brevard County charge
and placed in the Madison County
jailhouse. He was transferred to the
Jefferson County jailhouse on the
-following day, June 19."
Massey, meanwhile, obtained
DNA samples from the suspect on
June 20 and submitted these to the
Florida Department of Law Enforce-
ment (FDLE) lab in Tallahassee for
analysis and comparison with DNA
left at the crime scene.
On Tuesday, Massey received the
results of the lab analysis.
"The findings of the lab indicated
that Capt. Massey's suspect was the
individual who sexually assaulted
the victim on the morning of June
18," Bullock reports. "Capt. Massey
obtained a warrant for Willie
Boone's arrest on sexual battery and
related charges on Wednesday, as
well as other charges stemming
from the investigation."
Sheriff David Hobbs, for his part,
praised the quick response and effi-
cient work of Bucher and his depu-
"Their work in the case enhanced
the quick apprehension of the. sus-
pect and the development of the evi-
dence in the case," Hobbs said.

continuation of the renovation work
at the recreation park.
As described by Mary Ann Lee, a
community assistance consultant
with the DEP's Division of Recrea-

for construction of a picnic pavilion,

tennis courts, resurfacing of the pe-

among other things.
This latest grant brings to three the
number of DEP grants awarded the

in the 2003 fiscal year, were for
$50,000 and $176,200.
