LAZARO ALEMAN

Commissioners continued their
budgetar, horse trading on Tuesday,
eliminating another $128,000 from
the. deficit and actually ending up
with a $518 surplus.
All told, commissioners cut more
than $500,000 to bring the budget
into balance, ensuring that revenues
and expenditures match.
: The $500,000 represents the dif-
ference between what county. de-
partments and private groups
wanted and what officials deter-
mined the county can afford, based
on projected revenues.
Even so, the approximately
$20,448,724 budget represents a
$4.3 million increase over last year's
budget of $16,590,025 and includes
a three-percent pay increase for
county employees and a $200,000
reserve fund (See related story).
County operations on the cutting
block Tuesday were the Grants Of-
fice, Fire Rescue and the Road De-
partment.,

Chairman Offers Solution For


Animal Control, Not All Agree


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

Commission Chairman Skeet
Joyner thinks he may have found a
way to address the animal control
issue, which he calls one of the
county's most pressing problems.
Joyner made his thoughts known
at Tuesday's budget workshop,
garnering both support and
opposition to his idea.


His proposal, Joyner said, dealt
only with dangerous animals, not
cats or nuisance dogs. By
dangerous, he meant animals that
attacked or posed a danger to people
or other animals, he said.
"I've talked about this with the
Sheriff, Beth Thomrne at Solid Waste
and the city," Joyner said.
His plan, he said, called for a
deputy to investigate the initial
complaint, same as now. Once a
deputy determined that an animal
was dangerous,. that individual


would call Thorne and she or one of
her employees would go and capture
the animal, Joyner said.
After five days, if no one claimed
the animal -- as he expected would
occur in the majority of cases -- the
animal would be destroyed, Joyner
said.
At the same. time, he said, the
Sheriffs Department could begin
issuing citations to owners of
dangerous animals, beginning the
process of accumulating funds for
the program.
The beauty of his plan, Joyner
said, was that Thorne already had a
vehicle for the transportation of the
animals and the Sheriffs
Department had a dog box.
What's more, Thorne was
previously certified to euthanasize
animals and it was but a simple
process to renew her certification,
he said.
That meant that all the county had
to do to get the program off the
ground was to purchase a dart gun, a
.snare, train the appropriate person-
nel, and possibly build a small shel-
ter for the housing of the impounded
animals.
Or if the other commissioners pre-
ferred, the county could contract
with a veterinary office for the im-
poundment of the animals, Joyner
said.
Either way, the program could be
got off the ground with a minimum
investment, he said.


"I think we can get,it done with a
bare $5,000," Joyner said.
Which amount, it turned out, was
already in the budget and specifi-
cally dedicated to animal control,
Clerk of Court Dale Boatwright
pointed out.
Commissioner Junior Tuten saw
merit with Joyner's proposal, to a
degree.
"I totally agree that we can do it
for $5,000," Tuten said. "But be-
yond that, we're widely divided."
For starters, he was adamantly
opposed to any department head
taking on animal control, Tuten
said. In his view, department heads
had enough to do managing their
operations, without taking on addi-
tional duties.
As for the county building an ani-
mal shelter, "that's the last thing we
need to do," Tuten said.
"It will have to be cleaned and dis-
infected on a daily basis and the
dogs will have to be dealt with on a
daily basis," he said. "That takes up
employee time. 'And if you a build a
kennel, next you'll be involved with
nuisance animals. It will expand,
gentlemen. Government services
never decline.",
And don't forget the liability issue,
reminded Commissioner Jerry Sut-
phin.
"If you capture a dog and there's
anything wrong with that dog, you
will have to take him to the vet and
get him treated," Sutphin said.
(See Solution Page 12)


public and private entities.
Extension Office Director Larry
Halsey has overseen' the dismember-
ment of the department.
Halsey on Tuesday presented
commissioners with a budget that
called for a total expenditure of
$54,155. Commissioners ultimately
raised that figure to $58,155 to al-
low for a higher salary for the to-be-
hired grants writer, who will report
directly to them (until a county co-
ordinator is hired).
The $58,155 is also supposed to
pay for the salary of a half-timesec-
retary and the purchase of office
equipment.
The former department's housing
and food distribution functions,
meanwhile, have been contracted to
private agencies. And one of two
employees has been transferred to


the Building Inspections Depart-
ment, with the fate of a second em-
ployee yet to be decided.
SIn, his budget request for the'
Emergency Medical Service (EMS),
Fire Rescue Chief Larry Bates asked
for a $47,338 increase, which in-
cluded a seven-percent salary in-
crease for EMTs (Emergency
Medical Technicians).
Commissioners objected both to
the $47,338 increase and the pro-
posed seven-percent salary increase,
which they maintained should be
three-percent for all county employ-
ees.
Bates asked to be allow to plead
his case. He offered an alternative
plan that he said would reduce the
EMS budget -increase to $13,000
and still allow him to grant the
seven-percent pay hike.
He could accomplish this simply
by transferring one of his EMTs to
the firefighting side of the operation,
he said.
(See Balanced Budget Page 11)


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

Yes, the county's new budget of
$20,448,724 is about $4.3 million
more than last year's budget of
$16,590,025.
But the final figure may be a bit
misleading, according to Clerk of
Court Dale Boatwright.'
Remove, the $4.5 million that offi-
cials hope the state will award the
county for road resurfacing work
and the final figure drops to.
$15,448,724.


"It's a large amount of money that
hasn't really been approved," Boat-
wright says of the $4.5 million.
True, the Department of Transpor-
tation (DOT) is closed to approving
a combined $2 million for the resur-
facing of Tram Road and the Boston
Highway, Boatwright says.
And officials here are optimistic
that the remaining $2.5 million will
be approved for roads such as the
Ashville Highway.
But until the DOT actually signs
off on the appropriations, the $4.5
million remains at best a wish list,
Boatwright says.


1-10 Traffic Stop Results

In Arrest Of Six Persons


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

A routine traffic stop on the in-
terstate Tuesday resulted in the ar-
rest of six individuals.
According to Major. Bill Bullock
of the Sheriffs Department, deputy
Kevin Tharpe was patrolling 1-10
between the Lloyd and US 19 inter-
changes when he spotted two east-
bound vehicles that were apparently
traveling together and exceeding the
speed limit.
Tharpe stopped the vehicles and
called in their tag numbers, with the
result that one of tags came back as
a stolen car from Clayton County,
GA.
"Information was later obtained
from the Clayton County Police De-
partment that the Mazda was high
jacked from a woman at gunpoint,
who was also kidnapped for a short
while but was later released un-
harmed," Bullock said. "There was a
'flag' on the 'hit' warning that the oc-
cupants of the car were believed to


Word Came
Back That

be armed and dangerous."
Bullock said Tharpe held the oc-
cupants of both vehicles until other
deputies could arrive.
Charged with auto theft were
Sydney "D Rock" Byther, Jason Mi-
chael "Shaun J"' Ellis, Brian T. "B
Smeeze" Smith and a 15-year-old
juvenile -- all occupants of the sto-
len car.
The occupants of the second car
were Samantha Simpson and Jodi
Brito. Both were charged with pos-
session of marijuana, after pot was
found in the vehicle.
Bullock said Brito was also
wanted in Hillsborough County for
probation violation charges.

Copeland Tells ABCS

0 of Sun Exposure


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer
Though it is hard to resist a bright-
sunny day, precautions should be
taken to limit sun exposure.
"Spending time in the sun is not
only fun, but is good for you," notes
Heidi Copeland, extension agent.
"The body manufactures its own
Vitamin D from sunshine, however,
we can get too much of a good
thing, and taking precautions now
can help prevent damage in the fu-
ture."
She added that studies suggest
that young people get 80 percent of
their lifetime sun exposure in the
first 18 years of their life.
"It's good to know your ABC's
when it comes to sun exposure,"
said Copeland.
The ABC's are as follows;
A-is for away. Look for shade in
the middle of the day. Limit your

. ^.


exposure to the sun in the hottest
part of the day.
Practice the shadow rule. When
your shadow is shorter than you
are, the sun is high in the sky, and
the ultraviolet rays are very strong.
B- is for block. Encourage the
use of sunscreen and other protec-
tive measures. Use a sunscreen of
at least 15 SPF (sun protection fac-
tor) and apply according to the di-
rections.
C- i's for cover up. Wear protec-
tive clothing. Start with a hat and
sunglasses and end with socks and
shoes.
S- is for speaking out. Remind
your family and friends to use good
sun protection practices.

After School Safety
SIt's important to teach your chil- for young children to use with over pinion & Com m ent


c1dren about after school safety.
According to the U.S. Depart-
ments of Education and Justice, the
gap between parent's work sched-
"ules and their children's school
schedules can result in kids being
,home alone after school for 20 to 25
hours each week. In addition, the
,,Department of Education says 19
"percent of kindergartners through
*eighth grades spend time before or
.after school in self-care at least once
'a month.
So how do you keep your children
.safe? Try these expert tips:
Secure Home Consider install-
sing locks that use numbered combi-
}nation pads to open the door, instead
bf keys.
This can keep kids from getting
locked out should they lose their
keys.
For instance, Kwikset's Powerbolt
1000 is a key less. entry system that
can replace a-doorr's existing hard-_
ware. It has a touch pad that is easy


390,UUU security code combinations.
The lock runs on four AA Alkaline
batteries with no wiring necessary.
Know The Facts Be sure your
child knows their full name and ad-
dress and how and when to make an
emergency telephone call.
Also, your child should know your
full name, the exact name and num-
ber of the place your work and your
cell phone number. In addition, give
your child the name and number of
a friend or neighbor who you trust
and tell your child to contact that
person in an emergency if you can't
be reached.
Take A Look Around Tell your
children to always be aware of their
surroundings. If they think they are
being followed home, they should
run to a previously designated safe
place.
If they can't get to it, they should
seek helpfrom an adult. Kids should
also kno tioidoda quick check of the
house before they go in. (NAPS)


More Hurricanes


" Expected
Hurricane season is underway and
experts say "Stormy Weather" is
Likely to become a familiar tune in
coastal communities.
f The National Hurricane Center
' predicts up to 15 tropical storms
p with seven to nine of them becom-
;:ing hurricanes and at least three of
, those storms growing into major
hurricanes.
There are steps you can take to
- protect yourself and your home both
' before and after a storm in either
case, preparation is key.
; For you and your family, be sure
to store nonperishable food items
and water for several days. Figure
on a gallon of water per person per
day.
For your home, experts say one of
the most important precautions you
can take is to protect and reinforce
'critical areas where wind can enter,
such as windows, doors and garage
doors.
The material of choice is usually
,"plywood because it is lighter than
"steel or aluminum and is stiffer and
,'firmer than other wood products:
; Dave Paterson, executive vice
'president of building products at
'Georgia-Pacific offers the following
,tips:
Pre-measure windows and doors
"before purchasing materials.
Plywood panels should be at
l'jeast 1/2" thick and not more than
j13/4" thick.


This Year
Pre-drill holes for fast and easy
installation.
Apply plywood correctly to pre-
vent structural damage. Get help if
needed or ask your retail expert for
direction.
Label panels so you can store
and use them for the next storm
Those in declared disaster areas
who are concerned that retail prices
for necessities may go up will be
glad to know that leading supplier
Georgia-Pacific has a long-standing
policy to hold plywood prices to
pre-storm levels.
After a storm, Paterson says pre-
venting contamination and eliminat-
ing mold is critical:
Make sure all surfaces are
cleaned and disinfected.
Use disposable paper towels to
wipe out disease spreading bacteria.
Prevent mold and mildew by
thoroughly drying all surfaces.
Paterson says that mold grows in
moist areas year-round, but espe-
cially after floods. "You should pay
special attention to floors and walls,
and replace or remove absorbent
surfaces such as carpeting and ceil-
ing tiles," he notes.
"A long-term measure to reduce
mold damage is to install building
materials that counter mold. For ex-
ample, Georgia-Pacific designed a
type of paper-less drywall called
Dens Armor Plus, which is resistant
-to the growth of mold."

Law Protects Gopher Tortoises


BY TOM NORDLIE
University of Florida

The gopher tortoise, a burrowing-
reptile unique to the U.S. Southeast,
is gradually disappearing because
the dry, sandy upland where it com-
monly swells is ideal for develop-
ment. But University of Florida re-,.
searchers say the tortoise's ability to
survive in coastal areas may be one-
key to future preservation efforts.
A UF study of gopher tortoises on
small islands near St. Augustine
could reveal whether displaced colo-


with the constant exposure to salt or
how they manage to keep their bur-
rows from being flooded by the
higher water table."
Gopher tortoise are protected by
Florida law and developers have
several options when specimens are
found in areas slated for construc-
tion, Ehret said. They can build at a
distance from burrows, move tor-
toises to other parts of the same
property, relocate tortoises to distant
properties or obtain permits allow-
ing work-to proceed in exchange for
financial support of tortoise conser-

measure.
"Relocation sounds like a great
idea, but in practice it's had prob-
lems," Ehret said. "For developers,
there's a lot of work involved in
capturing tortoises and arranging for
them to be placed on other property.
Researchers are concerned that if the
new habitat isn't just right the tor-
toises will leave, and may,end up in-
jured or killed anyway."
Another drawback to current relo-
cation efforts is that tortoises placed
on privately owned land could be
displaced again by future develop-
ment, said Mike Moulton, a UF as-
sociate professor of wildlife ecology
and conservation and Ehret's faculty
adviser. The UF researchers believe
a better option may be to relocate
tortoises on small islands likely to
remain undeveloped, either due to
government protection or simply be-
cause they are unsuitable for devel-
opment.
The UF study focuses on gopher
tortoise populations on five small is-
lands in the Atlantic Intracoastal


Waterway, he said. Despite the rep
tiles' size up to 15 pounds and
ponderous appearance, they float
and are .sometimes observed swim-
ming.
Hundreds of islands are found
throughout the waterway, which is a
series of bays, estuaries and naviga-
tion channels reaching from Miami,
Fla. to Norfolk, Va., Moulton said.
Other islands along the Atlantic and
Gulf coasts might also be suitable as
tortoise habitat.
"We hope that with the right
preparation, some of these islands
could serve as homes for gopher tor"
toises and possibly for beach mice,
indigo snakes and other species imn
pacted by development," he said. "It
might be possible to construct neN,
islands specifically for this
purpose."
This fall, Ehret will help monitor
an experimental effort to relocate
Florida gopher tortoises to an island
home. A Flagler County developer

JES Students Create

Pet Calendar Artwork


FRAN HUNT

Board and membership members
of the Humane Society were ad-
Svised during their combined meet-
ing, that the fundraising calendar
, art contest is officially underway.
Coordinator Martha Jean Martin
i received approval from Superinten-
dent Phil Barker, to host the contest
for third, fourth and fifth graders at
Jefferson Elementary School.
Students have begun working on
their art for the contest, which they
will submit as 8/2 x 11 inch color
drawings designed with crayons, of
either dogs, cats, puppies or kittens.
That art work will be judged and
the top 12 entries will be used as
Iart work in the 2006 Humane Soci-
ety calendar. Each winner will also
receive a prize. When the winners
iare determined, they will be noti-
"fied at the school and presented

with idolatrous and therefore blas-
,phemous religious forms.
The Bible does not condemn tat-
tooing for its own sake. In other
words, God does not label tattooing
intrinsically evil. The moral content
of tattooing, then, is rooted not in
the act or the art but in its potential
identification its message.
In cities virtually the world over,
for example, gangs use body art to
define the group and send warnings
to their gangland foes. The Hell's
Angels, various gothic groups, and
.even members of the United States
,armed forces have at times used tat-
toos to signal their allegiance. So
have truck drivers and rock groups.
Tattooing is about identity portrayed
.or implied in artistic messages.
To apply this principle of identifi-
.cation, we might say that tattoos that
may identify the follower of Christ .
with ungodly values, activities or
.social movements should be
avoided., By Jmplication., artoo_ [that

"I've already spoken with the art
teacher, Ms. Akers and she said
that both she, Ms. Collins and Mr.

Entries must have the child's first
and last name, age, grade, teacher
and two or three sentences about
their own pets or pet care, to be eli-

This information will be included
with the winning pictures in the
calendar.
The pictures must be turned in to
Akers by Sept. 16. After judging,
the calendars will be sent to the
printer and the job will take three
weeks to complete.
When questioned about the possi-
ble success of selling the calendars
to the public as a fund raiser for the
animals at the shelter and their

The ultimate grounds for answer-

liberty. Tattoos that hinder holiness
are a matter of biblical injunction.
Tattooing is not taboo, but not all

has worked with state agencies for
several years to arrange the reloca-
tion, which is aimed at establishing
a permanent tortoise refuge, Ehret
said.
"Just by coincidence, this project
had been developing independently
of our UF research and I jumped at
the chance to get involved," Ehret
said. "By observing newly intro-
duced tortoises in a coastal habitat
we may learn things that help us fo-
cus our own research."
Gopher tortoise management ef-
forts need to be stepped up through-
out the Southeast, said Craig Guyer,
a biological sciences professor at
Auburn University in Auburn, Ala.
Loss of habitat is the most serious
threat facing gopher tortoise popula-
tions in all six states where the ani-
mal is found.
"Florida is 10 years ahead of eve-
ryone else in terms of bumping into
this problem and being forced to
come up with solutions," Guyer
said. "The idea of setting aside land
for permanent gopher tortoise habi-
tat is catching on here in Alabama
and I'll be interested to see if that
proves viable in coastal areas in
Florida."

Hannah Easton, 12, of Girl Scout
Troop 598, with the help of several
of the other girls, recently com-

Troop Leader Tamara Easton said
that deciding on her community
project was an easy chore for her.
"Having spent some time in the
hospital, she realized that children,
ages 7-11, quickly run out of toys
and activities, when hospitalized,"
said Tamara.
"Most of what they have is for
older kids and teenagers, so she de-
cided to begin a drive collecting
items for the Children's Ward at
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital,"
she added.
Hannah and the girls collected
toys, games, puzzles and videos
over the course of several months,
and even obtained a donation from
Toys 'R Us towards the project.
Upon delivering the items to the
hospital, they were accepted on be-
half of TMH by Robin Glady.

Progress Energy Customers Set

5th Summer Demand Record


Progress Energy Florida contains
to experience record demand for
electricity as customers set an un-
precedented fifth peak record for us-
age so far this summer.
Between 5 and 6 p.m., Tuesday,
Aug. 16, customers used approxi-
mately 9,406 megawatt hours
(MWh) of electricity, surpassing the
previous peak demand record set
July 27, by 198 MWh.
"As more people move to Florida,
there is greater demand for electric
service, and today the average cus-
tomer uses more electricity than
they have in the past," said Progress
Energy Florida President and CEO
Bill Habettneyer.
"By planning for the future, with
several strategic investments during
the last decade, building the equiva-
lent of four new power plants, and
adding hundreds of miles in new
transmission and distribution lines,
we anticipate no problem meeting
the increased demand," Habett-
meyer said.
"Additionally, we encourage our
customers to conserve when possi-
ble and take advantage of some of
our money saving programs like our
free home energy audit to make sure
they're using energy as efficiently
as possible."
Progress Energy recommends the
following tips to save money on en-
ergy bills:

'Beast' Named Pet Of Week
,'I -.i. l ; :: .,.. .. .


FRAN HUNT
-Siaff Writer


The Humane Society has name
;'Beast" as its adoptable canine Pi
of the Week.
'Beast, named for his exceptional
'large snout, and is a rather unusu.
.animal.
^, One afternoon while the front
gate at the shelter was open, Beas
- kne% he needed a home, so Ih
"walked in and made his presence(
;known.
Efforts were made to locate a
owner, but none was found, ar

'adoption.
He is a male yellow lab mix, a:





-,: -'-A


proximately 1 /2 years old, and has
been neutered with all vaccinations
up to date.
Shelter Caretaker Cheryl Bautista
describes him as being very puppy-
like and' young at heart, rambunc-
tious, and fun loving.
"He's exceptionally playful and
loving," she added. "He's very
kissy and slobbery, too."
Beast is also an escape artist. He
likes to use his large nose to lift
handles and open gates.
He will require a yard for romp-
ing, is great with other dogs, but no
more than t% o other males, and it is.
unknown how he feels about cats.
To adopt Beast or any of the
other many adoptable animals at
the shelter, call 342-0244.

stand our plight. But we keep falling
further and further behind every
year."
As it turned out, projected reve-
nues for the Fire Department --
which must operate strictly within
the parameters of the funds gener-
ated by the fire tax -- were lower
than originally calculated. Meaning
that the department could not sup-
port the transfer of the EMT, even if
commissioners had been willing to
do it.
But commissioners were adamant
that the three-percent pay increase
apply to all county employees.

"No department is more important
than any other department," Com-
missioner Junior Tuten said, voicing
the consensus of the board. "We've
got to do the best we can with the
revenues we have and there's no ex-
ception to the three-percent pay
increase...When the dust settles,
we're going to make an adjustment
to your budget. We've got a
$128,000 deficit and so we have to
cut into your budget."
When the dust did settle, commis-
sioners cut a combined $50,479
from Fire Rescue, reducing the defi-
cit to-$77,774. But then, a decision
to raise the retainers for the county
and planning attorneys a total of
$12,000 annually (Each had asked
for a $12,000 annual increase),
brought the deficit back up to
$89,774.
Commissioners sought the savings
in the Road Department's budget,


which had already been revised'
downward three times previousl--I
and took a $66,000 cut in the lai ,
workshop.
Road Superintendent David Har-
vey immediately offered to elimi'
nate the purchase of a back hoe anid
tri-axle trailer, which he said would...P.
save a combined $90,000.
But commissioners preferred to
save the backhoe, if at all possibl^-'
and make the cuts elsewhere in th6 :;-
budget. After much discussion and.,
weighing of the options, commis'-L',
sioners settled for the elimination o0 -
the purchase of a brush-cutter, ajl,.I.-
ued at $77,292, and the elimination
a lease contract that cost the county','
$18,000 annually.
"Gentlemen, that puts us $518 td i7
the good," Commission Chairmar,!I
Skeet Joyner announced at the conr *
clusion of the three-hour -x'orlishop; *

SHoward Middle Draws


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer
Howard Middle School football
team held its first practice of the
.. *"" season, Friday, with a turnout of
some 30 players.
Coach Willie Saffo said that he
had approximately seven players
returning from last year, and that he
expected to see some great things
from a few of the HMS players.
"I'm really looking forward to
the season," said Saffo. "We've
got a lot of speed and we are going
to utilize that speed."
"We're going to build on what
we started last year and continue to
focus on academics, attitude and
conduct," said Saffo. "It's just a
matter doing what we have to do."
He added that last year, HMS


TIGER offensive line readies for the snap. From left, Re-
ginald Watkins, William Wade, Brian Brock, Jon Dody, Ken-
dall Grant, Demetrous Hicks, Lucious Wade.


Practice
started with a big group that dwin-
dled down to a small group of play-
ers, because of some either losing
interest, falling by the wayside or
not keeping their grades up.
"They have- to learn that when
they get in high school if they don't
keep their grades up, they can't
play, no matter how good they
are," said Saffo.
He added that the team is strong
and they will also be working on
the fundamentals of football. "If
we get the discipline, we'll be fine
- and have a good season," said
Saffo.
The Bees season officially begins
against Quitman Middle School, 5
p.m., Sept. 1, here.
Saffo concluded that all home
games will be played at HMS
rather than the old JCHS football
field, this year.


Warrior Coach Sees

Strong Football Team


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

The Aucilla Christian Academy
football team held its annual Blue
and Gold football Classic last
week.
Head Coach Dave Roberts said
the scrimmage game pit the offen-
sive Warriors against the defensive
Warriors, to better analyze where
they needed the most work.
He said that the defensive team is
looking good and strong, but the
offense needs some work. "It's
like that with every team during the
beginning of the season," said Rob-
Serts.
He added that the Warriors are a
big, strong' and determined team.
"I have seen much improvement in
the skills of the players.
"They're getting bigger and


stronger and I'm extremely pleased
with that. I'm full of enthusiasm
and they are too," Robert said.
The Warriors are scheduled to'
participate in the Jamboree hosted
at Carrabelle, 6:30 p.m., Friday.
They will play two quarters against
Panama City Christian.
Roberts said the game does not
count toward the official season,
but participation in it will give him
a better look at the team, both of-
fensively and defensively, and also
help to determine the precision of
the Warriors.
"And if there's something wrong,
we'll fix it," he added.
He concluded that the Warriors
have a good shot at taking the Dis-
trict'Championship this year.
The season officially begins
when the Warriors face off against
Florida Deaf, 7 p.m., Sept. 1, here.

The Annual JCHS Football'
Booster Club Parent/Player Night,
hosted Tuesday evening, was con-
sidered a huge success.
Head Football Coach Harry Ja-
cobs said that many attendees com-
mented that it was the biggest of all
JCHS get-togethers in 10-15 years.
"It was full of people and every-
one enjoyed a big dinner," said Ja-
cobs. "Everyone had a good time."

Joyner agreed that the proposal
perhaps needed fine-tuning. But he
wasn't discouraged by the other
commissioners remarks. It just
needed for the details of his pro-
posal to be worked out, he said.
No one bothered to mention that
the devil's often in the details.

Tigers TO Face
Chipley in
Kickoff Classic

:FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

.*. Jefferson County High School
will play its Kickoff Classic Friday
against Chipley, there.
Head Coach Harry Jacobs said
,that the Tigers have a total of 38
players between the varsity and
junior varsity teams.
"We're just about ready now,"
said Jacobs. "Within the next two
days, we'll be pretty sharp."
"I have never seen Chipley play
and don't really know what to ex-
pect," Jacobs added. "But then
again, they've never seen me, ei-
ther, so we're basically going into
the game blind.,
"Our kids are strong and ready to
play," he said.

hush puppies, salad and tea.
Sponsors for the event to donate
approximately $150 a week of fish,
are still being sought.

ACA Team Sets

Car Wash Sat.
Aucilla Christian Academy girl's
cross country team will host a
fundraising car wash in the lot be-
tween the Dunn's Furniture Build-
ing and Sorensen Tire, from 8 a.m.
until noon, Saturday.
Coach Dan Nennstiel said the
cost for a car wash per vehicle had
not yet been determined, but he
suspected it would either be $3 per
car or done on a donation basis.
All of the funds raised will go to-
ward a few necessities for the State
Finalists team this year.


The event is hosted annually so
all team players and their parents
would be introduced to each other.
Jacobs donated 200 brim for the
occasion and the JCHS Boosters
contributed 50 pounds of mullet.
Participants enjoyed a meal of
Fried mullet, fried brim, Cole slaw,
baked beans, bread and tea.
School Board member James
Boland did the cooking, and sev-
eral ladies, including Ms. Wade,
Ms. Scurry and Ms. Wilson sea-
soned and breaded the fish for the
event.

Avoid Pay Day

Loans, Agent warns


FRAN HUNT
:Staff Writer
Family and Consumer Sciences
Extension Agent Heidi Copeland
-warns residents about taking out a
pay day loan.
- "For many people, facing and
emergency, or an unexpected ex-
pense, being able to obtain a short
term loan may seem like a good
idea," said Copeland.
-"A loan from one of the pay day
loan companies is easy and conven-
ient to. obtain," she said. "Typi-
-cally, the applicant writes a check
'for $115 and gets back $100 and
-the loan company cashes the check
-on the next payday."
She added that even paying $15
to borrow $100 for two weeks is an
exorbitant rate of interest.
"If a person obtained several pay
:day loans, they could end up with
---^---iW III
"i^S~]
2^^^-- ^^


no money from their paycheck and
possibly still owing money," said
Copeland.
"Any one who is lured by the
temptation of quick cash should
consider other, less expensive alter-
native such as a short term loan
:rom a bank or credit union, the
possibilihr of receimin an advance
on their pa', check froin their em-
plo\cr. or e\en asking their creditor
for a bit more time. even if the', do


have to pay a late fee," she added.
Copeland said that emergencies
do happen, but rather than a pay
day loan, most anyone can benefit
from making a realistic budget and
sticking to it.
"Put off making unnecessary pur-
chases and put that money into an
account for emergencies, even if its
just a couple of dollars a week, it
will quickly add up," she con-
cluded.
