Library Reopens



After Long Hiatus


New Facility Offers More

Expansive Space, Services


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

The long-awaited reopening of the
public library took place Monday
evening, amidst muchgood will, of-
ficial camaraderie, and congratula-
tory pronouncements.
The good will and festive occasion
well belied the long and sometimes
contentious fight to bring the project
to fruition.
Commission Chairman Skeet Joy-
ner presided over Monday's brief
ceremony, which included the tradi-
tional ribbon cutting, the presenta-
'tion of a plaque commemorating the
occasion, and informal tours of the
facility, as well as refreshments and
!.rnger foods. About 60 people
.brayed the inclement weather to at-
tend the event.
Joyner and Library Director Linda
Hamedani performed the ribbon cut-
ting, while members .of both the
County Commission' and the School
Board looked'on..(The one excep-
tion was 'School Board Member
Charles Boland, who was not pre-
sent).
Otherwise, the tv. o boards evinced
a mood of sweetness and light to-
ward each other that quite con-
trasted with their sometimes conten-
tious and acrimonious relationship
in the past over the issue.
As it was, the School Board's nar-
row 3-2 vote to lease the former
school media center to the county
for a library followed voters' ouster
of one of the School Board's more


adamant opponents of the lease.
School Board members opposed to
the library moving into the media
center wanted the building to house
the adult school instead.
None of the past controversy was
evident Monday, however, as every-
one concerned seemed to adopt an
attitude of letting bygones be by-
gones.

'This was a
community effort of
two governing
boards so that the
people ....would have
a nice new facility.'
Commissioner
Joyner

In his brief public remarks, Joy-
ner praised the School Board, the
County Commission, the library
staff, and everyone else who had'
contributed time, money or materi-
als to make the move to the new
building possible.
"This was a community effort of
two governing boards so that the
people of Jefferson County would
have a nice new facility," Joyner
said more than once.
School Board Chairwoman Bev-
erly Sloan declined' the invitation to
comment. Sloan, along with Boland,
were opponents of the library mov-
ing into the media center.


Commissioner J. N. Tuten, for his
part, praised former Commissioner
Gene Cooksey and School Board
Member Franklin Hightower for
their part in the endeavor.
It was Cooksey and Hightower,
Tuten reminded the audience, who
seven years ago conceived the idea
of converting the former media cen-
ter into a new home for the public li-
brary once the high school vacated
the buildings.
"This was their brainchild," Tuten
said of the two.
Following the brief remarks,
elected officials and members of the

public mingled, partook of the re-
freshments and finger foods, and in-
dependently toured the facility.
Spaciousness is one of the greatest
attribute of the new facility, accord-
ing to Hamedani. The new library is
approximately 3,000 sq. feet larger
than the former building, which the
county is in the process of trying to
sell.
Hamedani said the expanded ca-
pacity allows for a more efficient
operation, as well as for the eventual
expansion of the book collection
and other services.
"We now have a larger meeting
room, a larger computer lab, two
children's room instead of one, quiet
places to read, and a Florida/Monti-
cello room that contains all books
on Florida, local authors and lot of
oral histories," Hamedani said.
In addition, she said, the library
also offers access to PALMM, a
state-maintained database that con-
tains rich archival material of local
and area history for research pur-
poses.
Hamedani said the existing book
collection -- about 39,000 volumes

Hurricane Impact Being


Felt Here in Energy use


Hurricane Katrina may have dev-
astated the Gulf coasts of Louisiana,
Mississippi and Alabama, but the ef-
fects are being felt locally.
. Gasoline prices jumped to more
than $2.75 a gallon Tuesday; com-
pputer systems using certain tele-
phone lines are down across the.
area; state officials are warning of
coming fuel shortages; and now the
utility companies are asking con-
sumers to reduce, energy use.
In a press release issued jointly
with other utility companies on
Tuesday, Progress Energy is asking
the public to reduce its use of elec-
tricity temporarily, because of the
hurricane-caused disruption to the
fuel supply in the Gulf of Mexico.
"By conserving energy, we can
help ensure reliable power for all
our customers," Jeff Lyash, senior
vice president for energy delivery in
Florida, said Tuesday.
He continued: "We know this is an
inconvenience for our customers
and we appreciate the public's coop-
eration and patience as the Gulf
Coast recovers from the devastation
of Katrina."
Lyash said Progress Energy Flor-
ida plans to implement certain
energy-conservation measures, in-
cluding demand-side management.
(DSM).


ONE DAY after the hurricane,
fuel prices jumped here, with
more increases and possible
shortages expected.
The DSM program, in which cus-
tomers participate voluntarily, helps
reduce overall power, demand by
shutting off service to pool pumps,
water heaters and air conditioners
for short periods of time.
In return, customers receive a dis-
count on their monthly power bills
for participating in the program.
Lyash suggested that customers
also turn off unnecessary lights,
avoid using dishwashers and other


appliances during the evening hours,
and keep thermostats set at the high-
est comfortable level until further
notice.
Progress Energy recommends the
following tips to conserve energy:
Set thermostats on the highest
comfortable setting. You'll save
seven to 10 percent on your cooling
costs for each degree above 78.
Change air conditioner filters
monthly. Dirty filters can increase
operating costs by 20 percent.
Use ceiling and portable fans to
keep air moving. Remember that
ceiling fans cool people, not rooms,
so turning them off when leaving
for the day or extended periods
makes sense.
Close blinds, drapes, and shades
during the hottest part of the day.
This keeps the sun's rays from hear-
ing your home.
Take lukewarm showers and
baths and run the bathroom exhaust
fan to reduce humidity in your
home, since humid air holds, more
heat.
When possible, use your micro-
wave or countertop appliances for
cooking instead of the oven or
stove.
Progress Energy Florida is a sub-
sidiary of Progress Energy, which

Eight Apply For Job Of Fire Chief


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

Eight people have applied for the.
job of Fire Rescue chief, a position
that officially was supposed to come
open Thursday.
Commissioners at a special meet-
ing Tuesday decided they would re-
view the eight applications
independently and make a board de-
cision Thursday as to which of the
eight candidates they will interview.


Chief Larry Bates, meanwhile, is
being asked to remain as interim di-
rector until a new chief is hired, a
process that commissioners expect
will take about two weeks. Bates
will be paid on an hourly basis dur-
ing his time as interim chief.
During those times when Bates is
unavailable (He supposedly is going
to be working with the Leon County
Emergency Medical Service), his
four lieutenants and Lucille Hunter
will make the day-to-day decisions
here.
Bates announced his decision to


step down as Fire Rescue chief sev-
eral weeks ago. In his brief resigna-
tion letter, he offered to continue td
work for the county on a part-time
basis, if it was acceptable to the
commission and the new chief.
Bates first joined the fire depart-
ment as a volunteer. He later served
five years as an Emergency Medical
Technician, beginning in 1983.
In 1989, he took over as chief of
the fire department, which com-
bined with the ambulance service in
1992 to form Fire Rescue.

"I find my most challenging
situation to be when a student does-
n't know how to separate the out-
side world, or reality, from the
classroom setting," said Brown.
"That makes teaching more chal-
lenging."
She added, "And my 'biggest
frustration is that there is not
enough time in the day."
Brown describes herself as char-
ismatic, outgoing, and very inquisi-
tive. "I like to know all about
things and how things work," she
said.
She said she wishes to be remem-
bered by her students as a teacher
who cares about them. "I'm al-
ways here when they need me," she
added.
Brown considers her biggest ae-
complishment in the classroom to
be: finally reaching the student who
was uninterested in the subject, and
getting him/her to finally compre-
hend the lesson.
"I consider my strong point to be
the ability to be able to get on their
level," said Brown. "I'm so young
that I am a lot closer to their age
than a lot of the other teachers and
-that alone can help them to want to
start doing their work," she said.

Health Of America


Some thoughts on the American
work ethic are in order as we cele-
brate Labor Day on Monday.
America was founded on a new
type of idealism. This centered
around the individual and his
freedom...the opportunity to grow
and prosper without intervention
from government:
It was with a,very positive "I can"
attitude that the foundation of this
country was 'laid. It was a spirit that
defended a new nation against the
British Empire. It was the same "I
can" attitude that pushed back the
wilderness and put together a new.
form of government.
Then, as a young nation began to
mature and grow, a shocking lesson
became evident. These individual
freedoms were being lost through

Leading the way with this pro-

cording to American Journal of
Public Health, schools that imple-

lower rates of obesity, less calorie

physical activity.
A new feed guidance system,
MyPyramid, was recently unveiled
by USDA. According to USDA,
"MyPyramid translates principles of'
the 20,05 Dietary Guidelines for
Americans. and other nutritional

Skeptics reluctant to contribute

I think there is a shared sense of

Recognizing nutrition and well-

the Child Nutrition and WIC Reau-

each Local Education Authority to

In addition to establishing nutri-

This disaster did not befall

After a decade of harsh political
rhetoric and polarization, here is the
place we join hands and hearts.
There is something for each of
us to do. It could be a contribution
to one of the disaster aid organiza-

Perhaps these thoughts reflect

Food industry partners also sup-

marketing manager, education, for

Tyson taste tests new items with a
diverse sample of kids to gauge their

"Tyson's Kid Tested, Kid

Schools are part of the solution in
the fight against childhood obesity

Better nutrition, nutrition educa-

will help ensure that American's
students are healthy students.


ed Myths About Smoking


Quitting smoking is one of the
best things you can do to improve,
your health at any age. Only twenty
minutes after you quit, your blood
pressure drops.
Within three months, your heart
attack risk begins to drop, and your
lung function begins to improve.
Myth 3: I'm going to gain a lot of
weight.
Actually, the average weight gain
after quitting smoking is just five
pounds.
Using a nicotine medication, par-
ticularly nicotine gum or lozenge,
has been shown to help.
These products can also reduce
withdrawal symptoms, including
hunger. ,
Other ways to 'control your
weight: Use the time you would
spend on a smoke break to take a


,walk or do some other type of exer-
cise.
If you miss the hand-to-mouth
connection, try snacking on low-
calorie treats or fruit and drinking
six to eight glasses of water a day.
Myth 4: I smoke light cigarettes
so I'm not at risk.
Cigarette companies admit that
there's no safe cigarette. Once you
inhale tobacco smoke you're ex-
posed to more than 4,000 chemicals
and at least 69 cancer-causing sub-
stances.
In the over forty years since they
were introduced, "Light" cigarettes
have not reduced smoking-related
disease or death.' Don't be fooled by
the smoother feel on your throat or
chest..
Myth 5: I'm too addicted to quit.
There, are ways to increase your


chances of success. Talk with your
doctor, set a quit date, use proven
quit-smoking products and ask sup-
port from friends and family.
Most importantly, don't give up.
Most smokers don't succeed on their
first try, and learning from each at-
tempt can help you get closer to be-
coming a nonsmoker.

Remember these applications are

Once rezoned, the land may be

Foster Parents Urgently Sought -


Here, Orientation Scheduled


DEBBIE SNAPP
Staff Writer
Foster parents in the Jefferson
County area are desperately needed,
and interested residents are urged to
attend a community orientation ses-
sion in Perry, FL.
The session is set for 6 to 7:30
p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 6, at the Heart-
land House, 800 Ash Street, in
Perry.
The event is sponsored by Tri-
County Foster Parents Association,
Inc. (TCFPAI) and Camelot Com-
munity Care, Inc. (CCCI), which
serves the Counties of Jefferson, Fra
klin, Gadsden, Liberty, Madison,
Taylor, and Wakulla.


A Question/Answer period will
ensue with CCCI staff and experi-
enced foster parents from the
TCFPAI is included in the orienta-
tion.
Directions are available by calling
584-7224 from 9 a.m. 2 p.m..
Foster care is a program designed
to provide abused, neglected, and/or
abandoned children with a tempo-
rary substitute family life
experience.
Foster children are in the legal
custody of the Department of Chil-
dren and Family (DCF.)
It is impossible to say how long
the children will remain in foster
care. It may be a few months or as
long as a year or more depending on
the nature of the case.


Some children never return home
and may remain in foster care until
they are 18 or are adopted.
Generally, foster parents have the
first option to adopt a child they
have been fostering, if adoption be-
comes a goal.
There are many reasons why bio-
logical parents may not be able to
care for their children, such as fi-
nancial difficulties, emotional prob-
lems, physical or mental illness, and
drug or alcohol abuse.
Some children come into foster
care because their parents died or
abandoned them, while other chil-
dren are removed from their homes
because of abuse or neglect.

Marine Fanfan New

Grade 4 Teacher At JES


FkRAN HUNT
Staff Writer
Fourth grade teacher Martine
Fanfan began her first year of
teaching, at Jefferson Elementary
School this year.
0- .. ', _


FANFAN


,She received her Bachelor's De-
gree in Elementary education from
Florida A & M University, interned
at Hartsfield Elementary, in Leon
County, and worked there as well
over the summer months.
SA Miami native, she resides in
Tallahassee and, was drawri to the
county schools during the recruit-
ment process.
"When we spoke, I just really
-riked the atmosphere here," said
fIanfan. "It's a real nice, friendly
place. It's not a big school, but a
close-knit small school and the
people are really helpful."
?,She decided to pursue teaching as

,.


a career because teaching had been
a dream of hers since she was in
elementary school.
In addition, she was inspired by
teachers in her past and family
members who are also educators.
Fanfan finds nothing in the class-
room to be a real challenge and her
frustration comes from students not
paying attention.
"I remember what it's like to be
young," said Fanfan. "It's hard to
focus and concentrate on school
sometimes.'
She describes herself as a goal-
setter and patient person. "I strive
to achieve, and I want to get the job
done."
Fanfan wishes to be remembered
by her students as a teacher that be-
lieved in them and in what they
have to offer, someone who helped
them believe that they can be suc-
cessful.


"My greatest classroom accom-
plishment is when I know that the
students understand the material,
and realize that they can do the
work."


Fanfan says her overall strongest
point is patience.
Her hobbies include watching
movies, including drama, comedy,
romance, action, fairytale, shop-
-ping and travel.
"I'm really looking forward to
teaching at Jefferson and know that
I can help make a difference," she
concluded.

National 5 A Day Week Stresses

Fruit, Vegetables in Daily Diet


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer
National 5 A Day Week is ob-
served Sept. 19-25, in conjunction
with the National Cancer Institute.
The Department of Health reports
that proper nutrition includes a diet
full of fruits and vegetables.
Eating wisely and staying physi-
cally active helps maintain a
healthy weight, which makes for a
healthy life, officials report.
Jefferson County Health Depart-
ment Chronic Disease Health Pro-
motion and Education Coordinator
Marianne Goehrig relates that this
is of extreme importance to county.
Statistics show that 33.9 percent
of the adult population '(18. and
older) in the county are obese,
much higher than the state average
of 19.4 percent.


The percentage of that adult popu-
lation that reported engaging in
moderate physical activity is 31.2
percent, lower than the state aver-
age of 33.2.
The percent of the adult popula-
tion in the county that reported en-
gaging in vigorous physical activity
is 19.8 percent, lower then the state
percentage of 21.4.
Likewise, the percentage of pub-
lic high school students who are at
risk for obesity is 16.5 percent,
higher than the state average of
15.5 percent, and 23.3 percent of
high school students in the county
are obese, much higher than the
state average of 10.6 percent.
Poor nutrition and a lack of
physical activity are second only to
tobacco in leading to preventable
causes of premature death.
More than 58 percent of the
adults in Florida are overweight


and nearly 20 percent are obese.
Although males and females have
similar ratesrof obesity, males have
a much higher percentage of over-
weight.
According to dietary guidelines
for Americans in 2000, children
age two to six should eat five serv-


WE TAKE THE
DjNTS OUT OF
ACCIDENTS


ings of fruits and vegetables per
day.
Older children, teen girls and
women should eat seven servings a
day, and teen boys and men, should
eat nine servings a day.
One serving is only 1/2 cup of
cooked vegetable or fruit, 1/4 cup
dried fruit, 1/4 cup 100 percent
juice, or one cup of salad or leafy
greens.
A large salad can add up to two
or three servings of vegetables.


Fresh, frozen, dried, canned and
juiced fruits and vegetables all
count toward the "5 to 9" goal.
A glass of 100 percent juice at
breakfast, a banana for a midmorn-
ing snack, a salad at lunch, some
carrot sticks or an apple in the af-
ternoon, and pasta with cooked
vegetable and tomato sauce at din-
ner, is just one example of just how
easy it is to get up to nine servings
per day.

Laura Phelps New


Teacher At JCHS


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

Joining the staff at Jefferson
County High School in mid \ear,
last year, Laura Phelps begins her
first full year as grade 11 and 12
science teacher.
Phelps received her Mas:er's De-
gree in Biochemistry from Florida
State University and her BS in Bi-
ology and BA in Chemisir, from
the University of South Florida
Currently, she is working on ob-
taining her Ph.D. in Biochemistri.
She taught at FSU for seven
years, taught at a private middle
school for one year and'came to
Jefferson Elementary School last.
year in the middle of the year, as a
K-5 teacher.
Phelps also teaches for the


PHELPS


Princeton Review FCAT and she
tutors at a local company in Talla-
hassee, where she resides.
When asked what first sparked
her interest in a teaching career, she
said, "I've been teaching for years.
It's easy for me to relate because
I'm still being taught myself," said
Phelps.
"My parents always taught me
and it's a skill my father instilled in
all of us," she added. "I like teach-
ing and I get good feedback, and
I've also had a lot of good profes-
sors."
Phelps said that the most chal-
lenging aspect of teaching de-
pended on the grade level of her
students. "When they're younger,
the problem is keeping them fo-
cused, and when the students are
older, the biggest challenge is hav-
ing them see the science materials
creatively," said Phelps. "At the
high school level, I want them to
remember their creativity and that
science is applicable to life and it's
fun."
Phelps describes herself as outgo-
ing, chatty, and sometimes absent


minded when her mind wanders.
When it comes to her students re-
membering her in the future, she
said that the main thing she wants
them to remember is that science is
fun.
"It's applicable to life and in turn,
they can teach their children in the
future. I don't really care if they
remember me, and I want them to
remember science."
Phelps said her biggest frustration
in teaching is the fact that there is
so much paperwork. "I give so
many short assignments and there
is always so much grading to be
done," said Phelps.
Her biggest classroom achieve-
ment is having everyone compre-
hend the material and receiving an
A in class. "I've already had'it
happen twice before," she added.
Phelps said that she considered
her strong points to be that she is
critically organized, does a lot of
research, uses up to date technol-
ogy in the classroom, and is con-
sistently researching the Internet
for updated information.
When asked about her hobbies

and activities, Phelps responded, "I than K-5 is."
have two kids. My hobby is my Phelps is married to her high
family and spending time with my school sweetheart, Robert and they !
in-laws. I work a lot and I spend have a six year old son, Alexander
all my spare time with my children, and a two year old daughter, Perse-

like to read."
She was attracted to the Jefferson
County School system as a K-5
teacher at JES last year. "I really
liked everyone out here. It's a
smaller school system and you get
to know everybody," she said.
"The community is great and the
benefits package is better. The rea-
son I'm at the high school now is
that science is much more my field
