The Health Department is urging
residents to take precautions against
mosquito bites, following confirma-
tion of a case of Eastern Equine En-
cephalitis (EEE) here.
EEE is a mosquito-borne viral dis-
ease that commonly affects horses.
Humans, however, can be highly
susceptible to the disease.
EEE occurs in the eastern half of
the United States. It is regarded as
one of the more serious mosquito-
borne diseases because of its high
The EEE virus is transmitted to
humans via the bite of an infected
mosquito. Symptoms range from
mild flu-like illness to inflammation
of the brain to coma and death.
According to the Center for Dis-
ease Control (CDC), 35 percent of
persons who develop the disease
die, making it one of the most
pathogenic mosquito-borne disease
in the United States.
Florida, along with Georgia, Mas-
sachusetts and New Jersey, has the
largest number of recorded cases in
the country. On average, about four
cases a year. are reported to the
At risk of contracting the disease
are persons who live or visit areas
with an established presence of the
virus, persons who engage 'in out-
door work and recreational
activities, and persons over age 50
and younger than age 15.
Residents are cautioned to take
personal and household precautions
to safeguard against mosquito bites.
These precautions include using in-
sect repellent that contains the
chemical DEET; avoiding going
outdoors between dawn and dusk, if
at all possible; and dressing appro-
priately (socks, long pants and a
long-sleeved shirts, etc.), if going
outdoors can't be avoided.
In addition, residents should
take steps to drain standing water on
their properties, as standing water
serves as a breeding ground for
Places where water can accumu-
late include eaves, troughs, gutters,
garbage cans, old tires, tarps, flower
pots, birdbaths and pet dishes.
The county has a mosquito con-
trol program that is complaint-
driven. This means that spraying is
done only in response to a specific
request. Residents wanting the serv-
ice should call 997-3343, a 24-hour
In addition, the Health Depart-
ment maintains sentinel chicken
flocks for the early detection of ar-
bor viruses, including EEE, West
Nile and St. Louis Encephalitis Vi-
rus. The department bleeds the
chickens weekly and tests the blood
for signs of infection.
Chickens and birds represent am-
plification hosts. Meaning that they

serve as a natural alarm system.

large bodies of water on their prop-
erties are reminded that Gambusia

Taxable property values are uT
across the county, the city and
school district, largely the result of
new construction and generally ris-
ing property values.
That's the word from Property
Appraiser David Ward, who re-
cently supplied the figures to city,
county and school district officials
for the preparation of their respec-
According to Ward, the county's
and school district's taxable value
went up 16 percent, or $62 million,
from $379,000,000 last year to
$441,000,000 this year.
New construction accounted for
$16 million of the increase, with the
remaining $46 million attributed to
generally rising property values.
A mill in the county and school
district is expected to bring in
$441,000 in the current year --
$62,000 more than it did last year.
In the city, the increase in taxable
property value rose 15 percent, for a
total of $9,524,000. The taxable
property value was $64,421,000 last
year, compared with $73,945,000
this year. ,
New construction accounted for
$767,610 of the city's increase, with
the remaining $8,756,390 attributed
to rising property values.

advertise a tax hike if they choose to
keep their millage rate at the same
level as the previous year. That's
because, given the rising nature of
property values, the same millage
rate will produce more revenues
each succeeding year.

lage rate at least twice in recent
years, essentially giving property

A report from Road Department
Superintendent David Harvey to
Emergency Management indicates
that the damage Hurricane Dennis
caused here may be greater than
Based on the number of roads
damaged and debris scattered by the
hurricane, Harvey estimates the
storm damage at $57,150. He esti-
mates the cost to hire a contractor to
their private insurance companies. A tree
fell on this pickup truck on Waukeenah St.
sometime during the storm. (News Photo)
In addition to Harvey's report, El-
lerbe said her office has received re-
ports of other hurricane-related
damage, including water and roof
damage to a couple of houses.
She said her office is still in the
process of assessing the situation.
She encourages people who experi-
enced hurricane-related damage to

storm, struck just east of Pensacola
late Sunday afternoon. But strong
winds and drenching rains reached

According to Harvey's assess-

trees and caused washouts and
flooding to numerous roads, a few
of which have been closed to traffic.
Carol Ellerbe, director of Emer-

Sheriffs deputies arrested a 20-
year-old Leon County man late
Tuesday, following a two-day man-
hunt in the Lamont area.
West Lee Norton Jr., described as
tired, hungry and bedraggled at the
time of his capture, was charged
with several counts of burglary and
grand theft, among other offenses.
The saga began Monday, when
Sgt. Ray Lacy and Investigator Sally
Cole responded to a burglary at a
US 27 residence. Apparently unbe-
known to the suspect, the vehicle he
is alleged to have stolen from the
residence had a tracking device,
which the deputies activated.
A helicopter crew from the Leon
County Sheriffs Office soon after
spotted the car, which they reported
was heading back toward Jefferson
County. Deputies here quickly set
up an intercept near the intersection
of US 27 and SR-59, but they were
unable to stop the suspect, who con-
tinued traveling east.
The suspect finally wrecked the
car at the intersection of US 27 and
Depot Street and fled into the
woods, with the deputies in close
pursuit on foot.
"Faced with the fact that the sus-
pect had made it into the swamp,
Sheriff David Hobbs initiated a con-
certed effort by several agencies to
try to run the suspect to ground,"
Bullock reports. "The agencies that
responded to his call were the Flor-
ida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC), which brought
in a dog; the Leon County Sheriffs
Office (which stayed in the air
above the area as long as they
could), and others who were asked
to stand by in case they were
According to Bullock, the suspect
managed to get several miles
through woods and stole a farm
tractor about dark. Confronted by
the owners of the tractor as he drove
away from the area on CR-257, the
suspect jumped from the tractor and
fled into the woods again.
In an effort to contain the suspect,
deputies, Florida Highway Patrol
troopers and FWC units next set up
a seven to eight sq. mile perimeter
in the thinly populated and heavily
wooded area. But they were unable
to locate the suspect Hobbs finally
called the search off late Monday
"Patrols were set up and the Jef-
ferson County Sheriff's Department
and FWC began the search again at
first light Tuesday," Bullock reports.
"The suspect was located in down-
town Lamont about the middle of
the morning but again escaped into
the nearby woods after narrowly
avoiding the grasp of deputy Steve
Pearson, who attempted to run hi mi

Summer Jobs Help
Pay College Costs
Increasingly, young people are
turning to summer jobs as a way to
pay for higher education. For the
first time in six years, teens say sav-
ing for college has become the
number-one reason they will be
working this summer.
According to the 2005 Junior
Achievement Interprise Poll on
Teens and Summer Jobs, just over
33 percent of teens identified "save
for college" as their primary motiva-
tion for summer employment.
"Extra spending money," the top
reason in prior JA Interprise Polls,
garnered 31.2 percent.
A total of 1,155 teens participated
in this year's national poll, with 79
percent indicating that they planned
to work this summer.
"Rising tuition costs may be one
reason why a larger percentage of
teens are working to pay for college
this summer than simply for dispos-
able income," said Dr. Darrell
Luzzo, senior vice president of edu-
cation for JA Worldwide.
According to the nonprofit group
The College Board, tuition at public
universities increased nearly 11 per-
cent this year.
Added Luzzo, "Fortunately for
teens, the recent employment situa-
tion is still very favorable for those
seeking summer jobs, and these poll
numbers show that a vast majority
of the nation's youth plan to work

V, hen homeowners consider ways
to protect their home and family,
fire safety should be a major con-
One of the best ways to protect
loved ones during a fire is by having
a complete fire 'safety plan, begin-
ning with an early warning from ef-
fective, reliable smoke alarms.
Recent studies from the Consumer
Product Safety Commission (CPSC)
show that nearly 100 million Ameri-
can homes either don't have alarms
that are interconnected, or are under
protected from fire.
Interconnected alarms are one of
the best ways to protect a home, be-
cause when one alarm detects smoke
it sends a signal that triggers all
alarms to sound, alerting loved ones
throughout the home to the danger.
This immediate reaction reduces
response time and can help a family
escape faster in the event of a fire.
Wireless interconnected alarm sys-
tems can be fast and easy to install.
For example, Kidde, a leader in fire
safety technology, offers an Under-
writers Laboratories-listed wireless
smoke' alarm system that uses radio
frequency signals so that when one
alarm sounds, they all1 sound.
The wireless smoke alarms are
considered a major advance in fire
protection because they improve re-
sponse time in the event of a fire.
It is also important to test home
smoke alarms regularly to make sure
they are in good working order. Test
alarms once a month and change

form acts of courage and heroism on
a daily basis.
It's in honor of this service and
because of their love for dogs that

Larry Awaits Word From Braves
After Recent Tryout Session
Local 2005 Jefferson County
High School graduate and athlete
Markyce Larry, had a positive ex-
perience when he was invited to
come and try out for the Atlanta
"They said they would get back
in touch with me before school be-
gan, and that they were hoping to
have me play for them," said Larry.
"That made me feel really good."
He said the experience involved
athletes from three different
schools and was similar to a batting
A scout was pitching to them.
Larry added that v.ith his pitches,
he was throwing, at .about batting
practice speed. '
Of about 50 pitches, Larry said
he hit all of the balls, not missing
one. "I had five or six hard ones
(considered home runs) and the
majority was doubles," said Larry.
"They couldn't believe that I did
good, just being a graduate" said
Larry. "They saidLwas a tremen-
dous player for my age."
He said that his original intention
was to attend TCC, studying busi-
ness and playing baseball for them.
"I'm a Braves fan, but if I were
drafted, I won't have to go through
the farm system, I would go right
in," he added.
"If I go to TCC, I can attend for
about a year and hopefully I can get
picked up by someone else."
Larry said he had no intention of
abandoning his studies.
On the field in high school, he
played short-stop, but the Braves
are considering him at second base-
"I've only played second base
twice," said Larry. "But it's pretty
similar to short-stop."
He added that he did well on the
field playing second. "I was catch-
ing pop-flies, ground-balls and
working the outs," he added.
Before attending the tryouts,
Larry said he was really nervous.
'I've never had people really look-
ing, at me before, like they did
there. I have butterflies."
Larry vowed to use his head and
think, go out and have fun and to
do his very best, and not worry
about the outcome.
Known by his rivals for his bat-
ting skills, he holds a .641 batting
average with two home runs for the
past Tiger baseball season.
Coach Alfreddie Hightower re-
cently stated that once the fury of
Larry's bat at the plate became
known, pitchers would rather walk
him intentionally, than risk a
When he was invited to the
Braves tryouts, he felt, "Major
league surprise". He attributed his
quick thinking on the field as a
benefit for the team.
"I'm always thinking and analyz-
ing what is going on around me,
and how to better my'
performance," he said.
Larry began playing baseball
while in elementary school. He
played in spring sports at the park,
including T-ball, Coach Pitch and

else in life.
Larry is the son of Belle Parrish
and Damon Larry.

Land Values Go UP
(Continued From Page 1)
If recent history is any indication,
county residents can expect their
property taxes to go up 'again this
year. The county, in fact, has been at
the 10-mill cap the last eight or so
years, with no indication that it will
lower its rate any time soon, given
the continuing budgetary woes.
Notwithstanding ;he 16 and 15
percent increases in property values,
Ward points out that homeowners
with homestead exemptions will en-
joy a break of sorts.
Not only does the homestead ex-
emption eliminate $25,000 off the
taxable value, Ward says, but it also
caps the allowable rate of the in-
crease to three percent or the Con-
sumer Price Index, whichever is
"The perception is beginning to
creep in," Ward says of homeown-
ers growing realization that it pays
to hang on to the homestead exemp-
tion. "You don't hear a lot of real-
tors talking about it, because they
want people to buy and sell. But
once you get homestead exemption,
it behooves you to keep it. Home-
stead exemption is a big deal in
Florida, and keeping it is a big
Prior to enactment of the Save Our
Homes amendment in 1992, home-
owners were subject to dramatic in-
creases in property taxes, if market
values in their area rose
dramatically. These dramatic in-
crease often resulted in homeowners
losing or being forced to sell their
homes, if they couldn't afford the
The Save Our Homes amendment
shields property owners from exces-
sive tax increases, so long as the
homeowner retains the exemption.
Once a homeowner sells his or her
house, however, they are subject to
the market prices. Meaning that if
they buy a new house at a much
higher price, their property taxes
will reflect that higher value.
That's not to say that they can't
then regain their homestead exemp-
tion and enjoy the three percent cap
again. But that cap will be figured at
the new taxable value, which is cer-
tain to be much higher than the
As an example, Ward cites the fact
that the typical starter house, which
a decade ago was about $50,000, is
priced at about $150,000 today.
What's more, he sees no end to
the trend in rising property values,
given the growing interest in the
area from developers and others.
"Last year it was an eight percent
increase over the previous year," he
says. "I said then that it would be
the last time that we didn't have
double digit increases every year. I
can already tell, from following the
sales so far this year, that we're go-
ing to see significant land increases
next year again."

in Lamont Tuesday evening and in-
structed them to continue the search
until the suspect was located and ap-
prehended," Bullock reports. "The
suspect was discovered hiding in a
residence in Lamont late that eve-
ning and deputies were finally able
to take him into custody."
He adds that the Lamont commu-
nity's willingness to help out was
instrumental in the successful cap-
ture of the suspect.

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.
