REPRESENTATIVES of the three local gov-

Thursday night's program. Officials repre-
sented here are Coriimissioner Skeet

and Mayor Julie Conley. (News Photo)
ONE THING the different officials agreed
upon Thursday night was that the dialogue
needed to be kept going. Speaking here are

Chamber Hosts Government Talks
Senior Staff Writer
"It's a start," is the way David
Frisby, president of the Chamber of
Commerce, characterized Thursday
night's chamber-sponsored roundta-
ble discussion involving representa-
tives of the three local governing
Frisby was putting the event in its
best light, given that only six of the
15 public officials invited turned out
for the session, titled "Increasing

Plan Is To Start Dialogue
Among Governing Bodies
ing the discussion -- held at the Wil-
low Pond Plantation off W. Lake
Road -- were County Commission-
ers Skeet Joyner, Junior Tuten, and
Jerry Sutphin; City Council mem-
bers Julie Conley and Tom Vogel-
gesang; and School Board member
School Superintendent Phil Barker
also attended, although administra-
tors were not specifically invited.
All told, the discussion drew 20
people, including the several cham-
ber representatives there to facilitate
For the first part of the program,
representatives of the three govern-
ing boards were divided into three
groups, with each group containing
at least one member of each board.
The plan was to have the different
groups brainstoriT and identify com-
mon problems and strategies, if not
reach common ground. A chamber
facilitator monitored each of the dis-
After about 15 minutes, members
reunited with their own boards (in
the case of Vollertsen, he got to-
gether with Barker) and discussed
the findings of their intergovern-
mental groups. Some 15 minutes
later, representatives of the three
boards shared their findings with the
Vogelgesang spoke for the City
Council; Joyner for the commission,
with an addedum by Sutphin; and
Vollertsen for the School Board. All
essentially agreed that the just-
started dialogue needed to be con-
tinued, in the hope that common
goals could be achieved.
"The relationship between the
three government boards is better
than it was years ago," Joyner said.
"But that's not to say that we don't
need to continue to work on it...I
like the idea of continuing the dia-
As to the solution for "Increasing
School Enrollment as a Means to
Economic Development", Joyner
confessed he didn't have an answer.
"I don't know the answer to the
problems with the school system,"
he said. "But if we continue to work
on good growth, with good growth
will come a better school system
and better government."
Sutphin was more blunt in his as-
sessment. He expressed disappoint-
ment that only one School Board
had attended the session. Informed
that one School Board member had
experienced a death in the family
and another was out of state, Sut-
phin somewhat softened his initial
Still, he pointedly asked why cer-
tain educators employed by the
school system chose to enroll their
own children in outside schools; and
was the school district putting more
emphasis on sports than education?
Sutphin's specific questions went
unanswered; Vollertsen, however,
attempted a broader response.
He pointed out that the problems
with the school district weren't lim-
ited to this district, but appeared to

The Legislature awarded the
county $250,000 for the purchase of

The Aucilla Area Regional Land-
fill recently voted to raise its tipping
fee a total of $4 over the next two
County Commissioner Junior
Tuten, who represents Jefferson
County on the four-county regional
board, informed' commissioners of
the decision July 21.
Tuten said that the decision to
raise the fee came after three years
of back-and-forth discussions on the
issue. He said that even though the
landfill presently had $11 million in
cash assets, the facility's board of
directors worried that the reserve
was losing ground. He said the trig-
ger to the recent decision, was the
continuing low interest rates.
"We have fallen behind on our re-
serve for the closure of the landfill,"
Tuten said. "We've been knowing
for a while that we needed to up on
the fee, but with the low interest
rates, we've really fallen behind."
He.said the increase would apply
only to the per-ton tipping fee on
Class I materials, commonly defined
as household garbage.
"The tipping fee is $41 a ton
now," Tuten said. "We go up to $43
a ton on Oct. 1 and up to $45 a ton
on Oct. 1, 2006."
He said the increase was estimated
to generate an additional $106,000
Tuten said the money will go into
a special account for the eventual
closure of the landfill, "so that we
don't, get caught like we are now
with our own landfill, where we
have to close it out of our general
fund," he said.
That closure, he said was not ex-
pected to come until another 60
years, according to the latest assess-

Though much has been accom-
plished at the Humane Society
Shelter since the new Board took
over, much remains to be done and
needs remain constant.
During their recent meeting,
members discussed those needs.
Monetary funds and donations
are a must for the shelter to operate
properly and to continue to operate.
Needs met from those incoming
funds include medications, veteri-,
nary care, repairs, upgrades of
equipment, such as kennels, utili-
ties, labor, .telephone, office -sup-
plies, building lean-tos in the out-
side dog runs, and other related
items, and removal of large tree
limbs overhanging the cat trailer.
Items that are needed and can be
obtained through grants and large
donations include indoor/outdoor
enclosed kennels, a storage build-
ing for cages, outdoor fencing, con-
crete pads for outdoor runs, and an
automatic open and close security
Repairs remaining include seal-
ing the concrete floors, roof repairs,
and expansion of indoor dog runs,
outdoor exercise pool, landscape
maintenance, cat and dog transport
cages and pads, finish the puppy
palace, and finish the cat room.
Tina Ames stressed the need for
the donation of a large storage
building. "We need some place to
put the transport cages," she said.
"It will help prolong the life of the
equipment and supplies which we
Foster Chair Martha Jean Martin
stressed that it would greatly help if
someone could donate a couple of
folding tables and chairs to be used
at the local adoption booth, to be

Ames stressed the constant needs
for more volunteers to both assist at
the shelter, and with the adoption
"We need volunteers to wash the
dogs and especially need someone
to coordinate dog washes before
the booths," she added.
Anyone wishing to make a mone-
tary donation to the shelter can
send it to JCHSI, PO Box 559,
Monticello, FL 32345 or call the
shelter at 342-0244 for donations
of materials needed or to volunteer
for specific projects.

over the weekend .

ways a difficult genre to perform,

While all the characters did their
best and performed as directed, for
this critic, the play belongs to Bill
Tellefsen, who plays Virgil Baxter,
the next door neighbor of leading
character Marsha Gilmore.
Tellefsen plays an unassuming,
laid back, inconspicuous, kindergar-

claring himself a pharmacist.
When he thinks Marsha is in love
with him, he promises to whip up a
deadly cocktail which will eliminate
Marsha's husband, Tobias, whom
she believes is trying to kill her.

from one of his pupils, and appears

He demonstrates his stagecraft,

well as in his consistency as the

Boys Oblivious To
The old adage "boys will be boys"
has been used to sum up the reckless
way many boys view life whether
it's racing dirt bikes without a hel-
met or spending hours on the beach
A recent study by the American
Academy of Dermatology found
that teenage boys were the least
likely to protect themselves from the
sun. Fortunately, learning -more
about the dangers now may reduce
their risk of developing skin cancer
later in life.
"Teenagers don't equate bad be-
havior in the present with bad things
happening later," said dermatologist
Darrell S. Rigel, M.D., clinical pro-
fessor, New York University Medi-
cal Center in New York City. "Skin
cancer is no exception."
The Academy study found that
older teen boys (aged 15 to 17) are
the least careful when it comes to
protecting their skin from sun expo-
sure only 32 percent reporting that
they are very or somewhat careful.
This may explain findings from a
previous study published in the
January 2003 issue of the Journal of
the American Academy of Dermatol-
ogy. The study concluded that the,
majority (44 percent) of people di-
agnosed with melanoma the dead-
liest form of skin cancer were
white men over the age of 50.
"Invasive melanoma, the hardest
type of skin cancer to treat, is the
fifth most common cancer in men,"
said& Dr. Rigel. "While skin cancer
can take years to develop, we need
to convince teenage boys to change
their behavior now and reverse this
The survey also compared the sun
protection attitudes of boys and
Older teenage boys were less vigi-
lant than younger boys and girls of
all ages. Both younger and older
teen boys were less cautious in the
sun than teenage girls.
Fewer boys reported wearing pro-
tective clothing and seeking shade
compared to girls, and only 33 per-
cent of boys said that they apply
sunscreen when going out in the sun
vs. 53 percent of girls.
Among all teens, younger teens
(age 12 to 14) tend to be more vigi-
lant about protecting themselves
from the sun. .. .; -
"With younger teens, parents still
have influence on their child's be-
havior which makes them more
likely to be smart in the sun," added
"Older teens stirt exerting their in-
dependence and tend to ignore their
parents' advice. Skin cancer is pre-
ventable but until teens change their
behavior, we'll continue to see skin
cancer rates rise." (NAPS)

Pet Of Week
The Humane Society has named
"Spark" as their adoptable feline Pet
of the Week.
Spark, named for her playful per-
sonality, is a female domestic short
hair tabby with white chest, neck,
chin and white boots on each paw.
She is also described as being very
talkative, and vocal when she longs
for attention and TLC.
When anyone visits the shelter,
she reaches through the bars of her
cage in an attempt to gain attention
and talks to visitors with a soft "look
at me" meow.
She has a lively personality and is
extremely playful, lovable and af-
fectionate, and is recommended as
an indoor cat.
Spark was born on April Fool's

Rev. Thermon Moore Speaks
At Triple L Club Meeting
Members of the Triple L Club
heard Pastor Thermon Moore speak-
ing as a former Air Force Chaplain,
at their July meeting, Tuesday.
Moore gave his perspectives on a
Christian nation under God, what it
meant to him and how it affects
servicemen and servicewomen.
He spoke about the ways one
looks at the flag and what every fold
in the flag means.
Before a flag is handed to the
family of a deceased serviceman or
servicewomann it is ever so slowly
,folded. He describes how proud we
should all feel when look upon the
flag and how honored we should
Moore spoke of the origin of
"Taps." He told how a Union soldier
wrote the words and the music for a
Confederate soldier that lay dying in
his sight, only to find out later that
the Confederate soldier was his son.
The words were written to the
sound of a trumpet. The trumpet ex-
presses the soldier's sorrowful
words from deep in his heart.
In another vein, Moore suggested
leaving memos for God. He said: "If
you have a request, make note of it
and leave it out for God to take care
of, so you get that burden off your
shoulders, and put it in God's

: Canady said the article in the IV
ticello News had generated intel
and some last minute interest n
"The techniques in the course
not meant to replace emergency c
by a veterinarian," warns Tallahas-
see Red Cross Public Support
Spokesperson Jessica Norris.
"The course teaches what to do to
sustain an animals life before trans-
port to a veterinarian."
The course will entail where on a
cat or dog to take a pulse, how to
properly perform CPR, what to do
about imbedded objects, severe
bleeding, treatment for shock and
how to properly move an animal at
the scene of an accident.
The cost of the course is $25.
"It could save an animal's life,"
said Tina Ames. "It will be helpful
and informative to all those who
love their pets."
Canady concluded that if more
people show interest in attending the
class, the location may be changed,
and if so, the location will be an-
nounced before hand.

Quilters Bid Moving
CRAZY QUILTER Rose Klemp is moving out of the area and
was feted recently by the quilters. Here she works with the
group on the North Carolina Lily Quilt, soon to be raffled.
The Crazy Quilters said farewell
to one of their most attentive and
avid quilters last Tuesday evening at
the home of Barbara Sheats.
Sheats had invited quilter Rose
Klemp to join her for dinner. What
Klemp did not know was that all the
Crazy Quilter members had been in-
vited to the home of Sheats for an
after dinner dessert party, much to
the surprise and delight of Klemp.
She was deeply moved by the
love, attention, and special caring of
The Quilters brought an array of
sweets to share at the party.
Klemp is moving from the Monti-
cello area to Biloxi, MS. this week.
She promises to come back to visit
her friends and invited them to
"come out and visit me anytime."
In Quilter notes, members are sell-
ing tickets for their most recent
North Carolina Lily Quilt. The raffle
will take place in December at the
"Christmas in Monticello" event.
Tickets are $1 each and six for $5.
They can be purchased from any
member of the Crazy Quilters.
The quilt is king size with bright
red lilies and green leaves and stems
on a snow white background.
The members meet at 6 p.m. on
Tuesday and Thursdays. Sheats can
be contacted at 997-8732 for times
