County Hires Consultant


To Handle Housing Issues


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer
The County C6mmission last
-week agreed to contract to a private.-
consultant firm certain of the func-
tions formerly performed by the
Grants Office.
Meridian Community Service
Group, of Tallahassee, henceforth
will administer the Section 8, SHIP
and weatherization programs, along
with the Community Development
Block Grant (CDBG) project that it
has been administering for the
county since earlier this year.
Meridian will be paid for the ad-
ministration of the various programs
from the administrative fees that
come with certain of the grants. The
county, meanwhile, will retain a
portion of the administrative fees for
its own use.
Extension Office Director Larry
Halsey, who has been overseeing
the dismemberment of the Grants
Office, estimated that the county's
portion of the administrative fees
will come to about $38,000
annually.
That money, Halsey said, could go
to cover part of the salary of the
Grants Office personnel being trans-
ferred to the Building Inspections
Department.


As for the food distribution pro-
gram formerly handled by the
Grants Office, Halsey reaffirmed
that Second Harvest will now ad-
minister that program. He said Sec-
ond Harvest informed him that three
of five nonprofit organizations it
contacted in the county had agreed
to participate in the distribution of
the food.
Lisa Blair, of Meridian Commu-
nity Service Group, thanked com-
missioners for their decision to con-
tract with her organization.
Blair also informed commission-
ers that the Department of Commu-
nity Affairs (DCA) will fund in full
the CDBG project. Rather than the
$548,000 the DCA initially prom-
ised, Blair said the DCA would now
give the county $700,000.
The additional money, she said,
would allow for the number of
houses to be rehabilitated to be in-
creased from 13 to 16.
"This project is moving right
along," Blair said.
She said her organization had
-completed a walk-through of the 13
original houses and found that seven
required additional documentation
because they had been built prior to
1950. The problem was a technical-
ity that didn't warrant much
concern, she added.


She said five contractors had ex-
pressed an interest in participating
in the program, which was a high
number.
"We're thrilled about the high
number of contractors," Blair said.

It's early yet in the process, but
city residents may well begin brac-
ing for a hefty property tax increase.
Faced with a potential $200,000
shortfall, the finance committee
voted Tuesday afternoon to recom-
mend raising the millage rate to 8.0
mills, half a point above the current
7.5 mills.
The half-point increase is ex-
pected to produce $30,000 above
-the almost $70,000 that the current
1.5 mills (if left as is) will produce
inv additional taxes over last year's
revenues.
That's because property values
have gone'up, so that the same 7.5
mills that produce $459,000 last
year will produce $526,000 this
year. Which is the reason, why the
state requires that governmental en-
tities that don't lower or roll back
their rates to produce the same
amount as the previous year must
advertise a tax increase. (At the
rollback rate of 6.5932 mills, the es-
timated revenues are $463,162.)
It's to say, even if the city ulti-
mately decides to stay at 7.5 mills, it
still represents a 13.75 percent in-
crease over last year's taxes. At 8.0
mills, it may well represent a 25 per-
cent increase, as one city official
blurted out at Tuesday afternoon's
workshop.
At that, City Superintendent Don
Anderson wanted the council to
raise the rate to 8.5 mills.
"That coming from a non-elected
official," observed Mayor Julie
Conley.
"Coming from a Republican," An-
derson corrected her.
His point, he said, was that absent
a dramatic tax increase, the city will
continue to face shortfalls, espe-
cially as the sewer and water enter-
prise accounts continue to generate
insufficient funds to keep up with

the demand for infrastructure and
other improvements.

ESTIMATED cost to paint a,
water tower is $65,000

To which Deputy Clerk Patti Clai-
borne pointed out that per League of
Cities statistics, Monticello residents
already pay some of the highest
taxes in the state, comparatively
speaking.


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

Following the business adage that
says it's best to advertise when
times are down, city officials Tues-
day night .indicated they will con-
tinue to invest in economic
development and other enterprises
that benefit the city.
This despite a $22,800 shortfall in
the general fund, from where these
contributions are drawn.
After much debate, the finance
committee -- with tlc consensus of
the other council members -- agreed
to dispense a total of $15,000 to
three of four private organizations
that requested funding from the city.
The three organizations, and the
amounts intended for each, are: the
Jefferson County Legislative Com-
mittee, $750; Main Street, $2,250;
and the Economic Development
Council (EDC), $12,000.
The committee decided to deny
the $5,00.0 requested by the Refuge
House, a nonprofit organization that
addresses domestic violence issues.
The committee's initial thought
was to take the $30,000 set aside in
the budget for contributions to pri-
vate organizations and use the
money to eliminate the $22,800
shortfall in the general fund.
"If we eliminate the $30,000, does
that take care of the deficit?" Luther
Pickles, finance committee chair-


But even given the half-point in-
crease and the additional $100,000
or so that it will raise in additional
money, it will still leave the city
about $100,000 short.
Before city residents rise in arms
against the proposed tax increase,
however, a few caveats are in order.
First, the 8.0 is not cast in stone.
Not yet at least. That will come 7
p.m. Tuesday, when the council de-
cides the issue.
The reason that the finance com-
mittee is recommending the higher
number is that the millage rate can
always be lowered at the public
hearing, but it can not be raised once
it is advertised. The finance commit-
tee wanted to give the council wig-
gle room.
How likely is the council to wig-
gle? That will depend on citizens'
reaction to the proposed tax increase
and the intestinal fortitude of the
council members.
The-expectation, however, is that
the 8.0 mills will stick.
Consider: Although the recom-
mendation to propose 8.0 mills
came from the finance committee --
made up of council members Luther
Pickles (chairman) and Tom Vogel-

gesang -- the full council attended
the workshop and concurred with
the decision, if only by their silence.
Pickles, for his part, stated more
than once that it was his thinking
that the 8.0 mills would stick.
Second, the $200,000 doesn't rep-
(See Tax Page 5)


man, wanted to know.
.Pickles' original recommendation
was to give $750 to the legislative
committee; $2,000 to the EDC; and
$2250 to Main Street, bringing the
total to $5000.
Subtracted from the $30,000, it
would leave $25,000 -- more than
enough to eliminate the $22,800
shortfall.
It was left to City Clerk Emily
Anderson to speak up for the EDC,
given that Mayor Julie Conley, who
also acts as EDC director, was pre-
vented from doing so because of
conflict-of-interest considerations.
"If it's not $15,000 or $20,000 for
the EDC, it's not worth it," Ander-
son remarked.
Councilman Brian Hayes took is-
sue with the statement, notwith-
standing his strong support of
economic development in the past.
"If someone says $20,000 or
nothing, then fine, it's nothing,"
Hayes said. "That's how I feel about
it. I feel $12,000 should be enough."
Pickles agreed.
"In my view, $12,000 is 25 per-
cent of their budget," Pickles said.
"I think they need to get off their
wawas and get more money from
the community. You just have to ask
in this town. I think 25 percent is
pretty good for us."
The County Commission has yet
to make a determination as to how
much it will contribute to the EDC
this year.

Short Takes & Other Notions


BY: MERRY ANN FRISBY


When I see a dog riding in a car,
the total look on its face is sheer and
utter delight. They remind me of
Jack Nicholson and Dennis Hopper
in the movie Easy Rider.
As both Nicholson and the dogs
tear down the road with their ears
and long hair flying, I 'hum .."G
your motor running. Get out on the
highway! Looking for adventure."
Many people in Monticello give
their dogs this thrilling experience.
One I know is the helper to our tile
man John Cobb. His little Jack Rus-
sell terrier stands guard in the bed of


his truck, making sure that no one
messes with the expensive tools.
She takes this job seriously and
stands rigid legged like a British
guard at Buckingham palace. All
she needs to complete the look, are a
tall beaver hat, and a red uniform.
The secretary at Christ Episcopal
Church has a small poodely dog
named Bailey. She rides in air con-
ditioned comfort to her station. Her
job is' to greet and niatoe welcome e all
who come to the Church for comfort
and slobber.
Buck Bird has a lawyerly little dog
keeping stock that all in this town is
perfectly legal. He is a correct little
dog if I ever saw one.

I,


when .they are not on the job. On
one occasion I saw such dogs when
I was on my way to see someone at
the Franklin County jail.
The dump is on the same road. I
was following a man with two
hound dogs in the bed of his truck.
He was hauling his garbage and in
the bed of the truck, was a mountain
of black and white garbage bags.
The dogs at first were staid'drid
looked at the scenery.
They were proud dogs on an out-
ing with their noble master! As soon
as we turned the comer to the dump
road, they began tearing into the
garbage bags like demons. Garbage,
food, cans went flying all over the
bed of the truck.


They were digging like mad men;,'
eating morsels, and shaking offend-!,
ing items like rag dolls. They were'.

think I have ever seen creatures of
any kind, have more fun. It was a
delight to watch.
If I am ever returned to this life as

Advance Planning Can Stings Can Ruin Vacatio
Rrinn Danr. ls Minel

If advance planning could relieve
your family from the worry of mak-
ing important decisions during a
stressful time, would you do it?
Though baby boomers in particu-
lar are saying that planning a funeral
in advance offers them peace of
mind, many others also find it bene-
ficial.
For example, Jeanne Hoster of Ar-
lington, Va., says preplanning her
cousin's funeral provided her time
to really consider her decisions.
"There's no doubt I felt more at
ease having pre-planned," says Hos-
ter. "I think it gave me an opportu-
nity to give more consideration to
what he needed."
Hoster is not alone. Americans are
discovering the emotional and finan-
cial benefits of planning funerals in
advance.
By preplanning a funeral for them-
selves or a loved one, people find
comfort in knowing that the funeral
reflects individual wants and needs.
It also gives families an opportu-
nity to create a more meaningful fu-
neral by giving everyone involved a
chance to have input into what kind
of funeral service will be planned,
and whether earth burial or crema-
tion is preferred.


Funeral Traffic
Requirement
Dear Editor:
A number of people seem to think
that there is a law requiring cars to
stop when a funeral procession ap-
proaches from the opposite
direction.
A law enforcement officer I talked
to said that is not true.
In fact, he said, stopping like that,
especially in high traffic areas is to-
tally unrealistic, and can cause acci-
dents.
Sincerely,
Ken Wilson


Making these decisions in advance
can prevent family discord at an al-
ready difficult time.
The National Funeral Directors
Association (NFDA) recommends
that families considering preplan-
ning, talk with a reputable funeral
director who can discuss all the op-
tions and necessary decisions.
Once plans have been made, all
documents should be kept in a safe
place. It is also advisable to inform a
family member or close friend
where the information may be
found.
Preplanning a funeral does not
necessarily involve prepaying.
Either way, NFDA President R.
Doggett Whitaker Jr., CFSP, says
that families should not be reluctant
to ask questions when making pre-
arrangements, especially if they also
plan to pre-fund the funeral.
"I think they should definitely ask
where the funds are going to be
placed, whether they are being
placed in a trust account in a bank,
are they refundable, and who has
control over these funds," explains
Whitaker.
The most common ways to prepay
include annuities, life insurance
policies, savings accounts and bank
trusts.
NFDA developed the Consumer
Pre-need Bill of Rights as a resource
for consumers so they know what to
expect from any pre-need contract.

Stinging bugs and caterpillars, bit-
ing spiders and slithering snakes can
all turn your summer fun into mis-
ery or even tragedy. In 2004, the
Florida Poison Information Center
Network (FPICN) received over
3,100 exposure calls related to a va-
riety of critters .
According to Deborah H. Smith,
RN, Education Coordinator for the
Florida Poison Information Center-
Jacksonville (FPIC-JAX), "Most of
us, at one time or another, have been
stung or bitten by an insect.
For the majority of people, the re-
sulting pain, redness, swelling
and/or itching is temporary. How-
ever, for a small percentage of peo-
ple, an insect sting can be a life-
threatening emergency."
The Florida Poison Information
Center-Jacksonville offers the fol-
lowing tips to protect yourself from
poisonous warm weather critters and
keep your summer safe, healthy and


tun:
Insects can be quite a nuisance. To
help keep insects away, avoid the
use of scented soaps, perfumes and
body sprays. Wear light-colored
clothing. Keep all food and garbage
out of sight and covered.
For a bug bite or sting, wash the
area with mild soap and water; ap-
ply a paste of baking soda and water
until dried, then apply a cold com-
press. Over the counter pain-
relieving medications and creams
are available.
Use the medication only as di-
rected. Anyone complaining of dif-
ficulty breathing or swallowing, diz-
ziness, swelling of the face, lips,
eyes or tongue should seek emer-
gent medical attention.
Most snakes are harmless. In order
to avoid being bitten, do not
threaten or attempt to pick up a
snake. When hiking, wear long
pants and boots and avoid explora-
tion under rocks and logs.


If bitten, remain calm and wash
the area with mild soap and water.
Do not cut, squeeze or suck the bite
site. Do not apply ice or a
tourniquet.
Immobilize the bite site, keep it at
the heart level or lower and seek
medical attention immediately.
The widow and recluse spiders
can both be located in similar hide-
outs. These include sheds, barns, at-
tics, basements and closets. While
these spiders are not aggressive,
they will bite if threatened. Initially,
bites may or may not be painful.
The widow spiders can cause se-
vere pain, nausea, sweating, dizzi-
ness and muscle cramping. The
most common bite symptoms of the
recluse spiders are pain, redness,
swelling, blisters may form at the
bite site and the bite area may turn
purple and skin cells can die.
It is best to seek prompt medical
attention if experiencing any severe
pain, muscle cramping or if the bite-


Book Spotlights Caterpi


Many books focus on butterflies in
Florida, but now the state's caterpil-
lars are also in the spotlight, thanks
to a new guide by two University of
Florida entomologists.
"Florida Butterfly Caterpillars and
Their Host Plants," from the Univer-
sity Press of Florida, is the first
book of its kind, said Jerry Butler, a
professor emeritus of entomology
with UF'S Institute of Food and Ag-
ricultural Sciences.
"We thought caterpillars deserved
more attention than they had gotten
in the past," Butler said. "They
might be a little less flashy than 'but-
terflies, but they're fascinating crea-
tures."
Aimed at lay people, the book in-
cludes color photographs of all but
one of Florida's 168 caterpillar spe-


cies (missing is the rare amethyst
hair streak caterpillar), 185 host
plants and 19 habitat types. There
are photographs of the complete life
cycle, from egg to caterpillar to
pupa to adult, for 18 species.
Information for each species in-
cludes a range map, description of
the larva, similar species, habitat,
U.S. Distribution, natural history,
seasonal activity and host plants. A
key can help readers identify cater-
pillars without consulting every
photo.
The text also includes a checklist
for noting caterpillar sightings and
chapters on butterfly gardens and
finding and rearing caterpillars. A
section on caterpillar behaviors in-
cludes little-known facts about cat-
erpillar defenses (spring azures


recruit ants as bodyguards by feed-
ing them a sweet-tasting liquid) and
concealment (chlorophyll in the diet
of green caterpillars keep them
green. but they have to avoid sun-
light to prevent fading).
Although the title of the book says
"Florida," all of the butterfly species
are found elsewhere, said Don Hall,
a professor of entomology at UF
who co-authored the book. Florida's
location makes it home to temperate
species from eastern North America
as well as tropical species from the
Caribbean.
"We're fortunate to have such a
variety of butterflies here," Hall
said. "There are always new things
to learn, which is one of the reasons
people enjoy studying butterflies, as
a hobby or a profession."

The Portuguese Man-of-War, Jel-
lyfish and Fire Coral are among the *
many marine creatures that cansi
sting. It is not uncommon to en-
counter one of these creatures while
enjoying the water. "
Upon contact, these marine crea-"0
tures can cause severe pain and'
burning, red lesions, welts, nausea;
headache, dizziness and/or muscle
spasms.
These marine stings can be treated N
by irrigating the affected area with'l
sea water (not fresh water), therli
soak the area in household vinegar\
for 30 minutes. ,
Any remaining tentacles can be re-
moved by applying a paste of bak2-
ing soda and water, and scraping the
area with a butter knife or other
blunt object (credit card). Do notA
rub the area.
When dry, apply a topical steroid
dream every four hours for several
days. If an allergic reaction develops
-or symptoms do not resolve, then W
seek medical attention.

Butler and Hall began assembling .
material for the book 11 years ago.
At the time, they were simply curi-
ous to see how many larvae they ^
could identify and photograph. They :
found that identifying caterpillars l
sometimes meant rearing them until
they metamorphosed into adults. ,;
"There was no one-stop reference
available, and some caterpillar spe- -;
cies were not well documented," '
Butler said. "Initially, we had no in- S
tention of producing a reference 4
book ourselves, but as we collected '
more and more photos, we realized
we ought to do it."
"The metal mark life cycle took a
year and a half," Butler said. "We ;

Pole Vaulting Equipment

To Be installed At JCHS Track


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer
Back in May, students and fac-
ulty at Jefferson County High
School were expecting the delivery
of the last of the equipment needed
for the 2005-06 pole vaulting com-
petition during the track and field
meets.
Officials report that the equipment
has since arrived, and ready for
professional installation after the
school year begins, Aug. 8.
Coach Harry Jacobs expects that
many students will sign up for the
team. It was because of the many
inquiries showing interest in pole
vaulting, that the required equip-
ment was ordered.
Former JCHS Principal Michael
Bryan said in an earlier interview,
that officials began in February to
research funding for the project.
He added that ultimately funds


were derived from capital outlay
funds, which are categoricals espe-
cially allocated for school improve-
ments.
Jacobs said that pole vaulting was
last offered at JCHS 23 years ago
when he coached it.
When he left to work at FAMU,
and could no longer coach the
team, the event was dropped and
the original equipment eventually
fell into disrepair over the years.
The reason to wanting to bring
pole vaulting back to Track and
Field is to draw more athletes into
the sport.
Bryan said, "A lot of kids are in-
terested in the sport, and school of-
ficials thought it was wonderful to
be able to bring it back again.
"It attracts kids not otherwise in-
terested in Track and Field because
they consider it to be an unique, on
the edge kind of event."
He added that it was unfortunate
that the equipment didn't arrive in

"I think we'll be competitive and
strong," said Nennstiel. "But at this
point, until the physical and con-
sent forms are handed in, it's all
speculation."
He said that he hopes that the
girls will have an excellent shot at
the District Championship this
year.

"It's going to be a real dogfight,"
said Nennstiel. "They're not just
going to hand it to us."
The girls have been competing in
events during the summer months

Items purchased include the pit,
pads, safety gear, poles, cross bars,
helmets, the box containing the pit
and the standards (uprights).
The equipment was set up at the
old high school in the center of the
track where the old equipment had
been located.
Jacobs said that although he had
never competed in pole vaulting, he
had read and studied Track and
Field including pole vaulting, in
both high school and in college.
"I know how, and I'm willing to
show them," said Jacobs. "Well, at
least up to six feet."
He concluded that he will hold a
mini camp for the team when
school starts, and will arrange for
someone from FAMU to come to
work with athletes once per week,
throughout the season.
Jacobs looks forward to an ex-
citing and fruitful season for the Ti-

Health Deparment Supports


Breastfeeding Week


I FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

World Breastfeeding Week
(WBW) is observed Aug. 1-7 and
* the County Health Department
stresses the importance of breast
feeding.
The goal of the program is to get
more women to understand the im-
portance of breastfeeding exclu-
sively and get them to do it.
Most babies are not exclusively
breast fed. On average, globally,
only 39 percent of babies breast
feed exclusively, even in the first
four months of life.
Spokesperson Betty Spindel said
that breast feeding has been the
norm throughout history, but in the
mid 20th century, most women did
not choose to breast feed.
An entire generation of women


grew up not believing that breast
feeding was the normal way to feed
babies.
The shift in belief had a negative
effect on breast feeding and babies
around the world.
Many women don't know the ba-
sic skills of breast feeding. They
were lost during the generation that
breast feeding stopped being the
norm.
Most women are capable of nour-
ishing their infants on breast milk
alone for the first six months of
life.
The American Academy of Pedi-
atrics recommends that breast feed-
ing should begin within one hour
after birth, and continue exclu-
sively for the first six months.
After the first six months, it is
recommended to gradually intro-
duce iron-enriched solid foods and
continue to breast feed until at least
12 months of age.


Aug. 1-7
The World Health Organization
recommends that a child be breast
fed for at least two years.
Babies' benefits include signifi-
cantly less respiratory infections,
allergies, pneumonia diarrhea, ear
infections and a reduced risk of
diabetes, meningitis, and childhood
lymphoma and reduces the risk of
allergic conditions such as asthma.
Children who are breastfed have
significantly higher scores on
measures of cognitive ability, stan-
dardized tests of achievement, and
receive better grades in school.
Mothers benefit from breast feed-
ing as well. Research points to a
reduced risk of breast and ovarian
cancer.
Breastfeeding also protects
against osteoporosis and urinary
tract infection, as well as helping
return the mother's body to it's pre-
pregnancy state faster.
Since both mothers and their chil-


dren benefit from breastfeeding, it
is important for the health of the
mothers and babies that breast-
feeding be established as the nor-
mal way for babies to feed.
For further information on breast
feeding, call the Health Department
at 342-0167, ex. 4 or 1-800-416-
4123 and ask to speak to the WIC
Nutritionist.

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.
