"Many of them don't have uni-

some uniforms here so we loaded a

brushes, toothpaste, hand
sanitizers, latex gloves, shaving
cream and razors and sent the items
He said his department will con-
tinue to collect items, and will
transport these to the disaster area
in the near future.
"We don't have much, but they
have nothing," Hobbs said. "What
we send isn t a large amount, but
the small amounts of help eventu-

Hobbs said he knew that the dis-
aster area also needs law enforce-

cal department doesn't have the

St. Joe Withdraws
The St .Joe Timberland Company
withdrew its request Aug. 30, call-
ing for the rezoning of 985 acres off
US 27, near the Leon County line.
'The letter was received following
the denial of the request, Aug. 11,
by the Planning Commission.
The desired change was from ag-
20 (one house per 20 acres) to ag-5
(one house per 5 acres.)
The property lies along Sweetwa-
ter Branch, about a mile from the St.
Marks River, and includes wood
storks, and bear tracks, according to
the consultant's report.
The landscape consists largely of
pine trees planted in the past 25
years by St. Joe, the former paper
company that turned developer in
the late 1990's.
At the hearing, company represen-
tatives offered a pictorial representa-
tion of a community that would
include clustered houses, green
spaces and meandering paths to re-
tain a rural flavor.
At the time, a company represen-
tative stated: "We're cognizant of
the natural beauty, and we don't
want to detract from any of the
county's natural beauty."
Opponents pointed out the lack of
infrastructure in the area to support
such a development, as well as the
lack of economic benefit to the
"These people will work, shop,
and send their kids to school in Tal-
lahassee," Cindy Lee said.
Don Lee pointed out that once the
zoning was granted, the company
could sell the land and the next
owner would not be bound by St.
Joe's representations, he said.
Planner Bud Wheeler called the
proposed development a satellite
community that would bring no
benefit whatsoever to Jefferson
Planner Brad Mueller referred to
the fragmentation of the region, if
the application was granted.
It was his understanding, he said,
that the planner's job was to protect
the interest of existing residents, not
only to respond to the wants of de-

Watch And Learn Often,
watching television or movies with
a child leads to an opportunity to
discuss morality and the conse-
quences of actions. For instance, a
television series that's now also
available on DVD called "The
Roach Approach" uses a warm-
hearted and funny family of ani-
mated roaches to help teach impor-
tant lessons. On one DVD, called
"Roach Approach: Don't Miss The
Boat," the family is vacationing in
Florida when hurricane threatens to
ruin their good time.
Grandpa Lou then takes the op-
portunity to tell the story of Noah's-
Ark. Parents can use the show to
discuss moral issues with their kids.
On a second DVD, "The Mane
Event," Grandpa Lou retells the
story of Daniel in the Lion's Den
and talks about the importance of
standing up for your beliefs.
Walk The Walk Few things
confuse children more than obvious
discrepancies between what parents
teach and how they behave.
. If you tell you child to treat others
-kindly, be sure to do so yourself. If
you realize you've mistreated some-
one, tell your child about the inci-
dent and discuss what you could
have done differently.
Doing so can help your child see
that everyone makes mistakes and
that it's important to own up to

Among other techniques, the

replacing just one 90 watt incandes-

Local Hearts Open For
New Orleans Couple
Allen G. Chuminlee and his wife,
' --Gyndy, New Orleans evacuees who
- -ed Hurricane Katrina cannot ex-
: press their appreciation enough for
.-e kindness of local residents.
S When they were advised to
evacuate New Orleans, they had no
: way to do so.
- ; -Their landlord, Nick Asprodites,
; gave them a truck and told them to
leave and they ended up in a local
While at the local Winn Dixie,
Allen mentioned to Manager Laura
W: 'hatley, that he and his wife had
been displaced by Hurricane Ka-
Whatley then pulled out her
credit card, refusing to let him pay
for the food and water in his shop-
Resident George Carswell heard
about the twosome and offered to
assist them to find housing.
Friday, CO-owner of Blake's
Rare Door, Jim Blake, said he
overheard Churninlee in a conver-
sation over the phone and his heart
opened up to him.
"This of course touched me per-
sonally, having just one year ago,
experienced the same devastation
from Hurricane Ivan in Pensacola,"
"Just the fact that you're in a
strange place, unsure where many
of your friends and family are is
traumatic.. Unanswered questions
run through the mind, such as did
the relatives leave, or stay? Are
they OK?, and is my home still
"These concerns hound you day
after day as the answers slowly
start coming from the media and
phone service is restored," said
Blake. "Unfortunately, I lost every-
Blake said he asked Chuminlee
after getting off of the phone, if he
had contacted FEMA or the Red
Cross, and he said, no, and he was-
n't going to.
Blake said that once he asked
why not, that the money was his as
much as anybody's, for the asking,
Chuminlee responded, "I will not
take handouts as long as I can
In further conversation, Churnin-
lee asked Blake if he could lease
the store and was told, no, but
Blake discovered that Churninlee is
a chef by trade, and hired him.
In order to further assist Chumin-
lee, the Rare Door is supplying all
of the food for a fund raiser next
From 4-8 p.m., Churninlee will
serve as chef at the restaurant, pre-
paring both rib eye steak dinners
with all the trimmings or a meal of
red beans and rice with smoked
sausage and corn bread.
Tickets are being sold at the res-
taurant for $18.95 each and all
money raised from the event, will
be donated to the Chuminlees to

assist them with living costs.
Any local businesses wishing to
assist with ticket sales can contact
Blake at 997-3133.
After refusing an earlier personal
interview, Cruninlee concluded,
"There is enough pain, suffering
and bad news right now, and my
wife and I can't watch TV without
"That pain is not the story, the
people willing to give a job, find
housing, giving us food, and donat-
ing all of the food to make this
fund raiser possible, that's where
the real story is," Churininlee.
