Planners OK One



Rezoning Request,



Continue Second


Matter Still Has ways To

Co Before Final Approval


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

It will now be up to the County
Commission to decide the fate of a
Comprehensive Plan amendment
that proposes to increase the density
of a 73-acre parcel off US 19 and
south of 1-10 from agriculture to
residential. .
. After a lengthy discussion Thurs-
day night, the Planning Commission
voted to recommend the amendment
to the County Commission for ap-
proval. This notwithstanding strong
and vocal opposition to the proposal
from adjacent property owners.
"It wasn't a unanimous decision,"
Planning Official Bob Arredondo
said Monday. "There was a motion
to deny that failed. The motion to
approve passed 8-1. There was a lot
of opposition to the application, a
lot of speakers against it. We had a
fairly full house."
The application calls for the re-
zoning of 73 acres from agriculture-
5, which allows one house every
five acres, to residential-1, which al-
lows one house per acre.


Opponents charge that.the rezon-
ing is incompatible with the rural
character of the area. They say the
rezoning essentially constitutes spot
zoning and sets a precedent that
opens the area to similar develop-
ment.
They worry also about the addi-
tional septic tanks that will be re-
quired to serve any subdivision
that's sure to be put on the property.
More specifically, they worry about
the potential impact of those septic
tanks on the nearby wetlands and
the aquifer.
It's also not exactly clear how
many acres the rezoning encom-
passes, as an adjoining property
owners is disputing the 73 acres rep-
resentation. The adjoining property
owner claims that seven of the 73
acres are his own, wrongly included
in the rezoning application. The lat-
ter matter will likely have to re-
solved in court, if it goes that far.
In recommending approval of the
rezoning, the Planning Commission
put a 50-unit limit on any future de-
velopment, according to Arredondo.
Meaning that no more than 50
houses can be constructed on the


property, even if it's ultimately
proves to be 73 acres.
Those unhappy with the Planning
Commission's recommendation next
get a chance to argue their case be-
fore the more politically-sensitive
County Commission. The County
Commission may accept the plan-
ners' recommendation, reject it, or
approve it with stipulations of its
own.
But even if the County Commis-
sion approves the rezoning, it must
still go before the Department of
Community Affairs (DCA) for re,
view. And the DCA may have ob-
jections and stipulations of its own.
Which is to say that the rezoning
request still has a ways to go before
it is ultimately decided.
The planners, meanwhile, post-
poned consideration of a second
Comprehensive Plan amendment
that called for the rezoning of 377
acres off US 27 near the Waukeenah
area.
The reason for the postponement,
according to Arredondo, was the
failure to formally notify an adjoin-
ing property owner of the proposed
land-use change.
This is not the first time the notifi-
cation system has broken down. The
problem, in fact, is beginning to ap-
pear to be a chronic failing. So
much so that the Planning Commis-

Officials Set Legislative


Priorities For Next Year


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer


County officials have identified
the priority projects they will try to
get the Legislature to fund in the
2007 session.
First and foremost among the pro-
jects is the Emergency Management
Center (EMC), which county offi-
cials have been pursuing for at least
three years now.
The idea is to consolidate the
county's emergency responder serv-
ices (such as Emergency Manage-
ment, fire and ambulance) at one lo-
cation, preferably near the jail.
The EMC would operate as a
command center during times of-


natural or manmade disasters, al-
lowing elected and other officials to
coordinate rescue and recovery ef-
forts from one central location.
Notwithstanding past failures to
get the project funded, officials be-
lieve the time is opportune for such
funding in the aftermath of Hurri-
cane Katrina. Officials, in fact, have
been informed that disaster prepar-
edness will be a focal point of the
coming legislative session.
Said Commission Chairman Skeet
Joyner, also a founding member of
the Jefferson County Legislative
(Lobbying) Committee: "With the
New Orleans' disaster and last year's
several hurricanes, this is an ideal
time to make the building our top
_priority."


Officials decided that the second
priority project will be the agricul-
* tural center, another project they
have been pursuing for several years
now.
The idea again is to consolidate in
one building the different local, state
and federal agencies dedicated to
the agriculture sector. The center
would include an arena for the ex-
hibit of animals and other programs
of the 4-H Club and related agricul-
ture organizations.
In keeping with the disaster pre-
paredness theme, officials plan to
emphasize in their request to the
Legislature the center's potential
uses in emergency situations.
"If we can emphasize that this

Commissioners Urged To Explore

Lowering Cost Of Fire insurance


FIRE is one of the great fears of homeown-
ers. Former Fire Rescue Chief Larry Bates
presented commissioners with a plan back
in May that could reduce fire insurance


rates for homeowners. Bates recently urged
commissioners to revisit the issue. (News

LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

In his parting remarks to the
County Commission recently, Fire
Rescue Chief Larry Bates urged
commissioners to explore the possi-
bility of lowering the insurance rates
for fire protection here.
Bates, who resigned as chief ef-
fective Sept. 1, first informed com-
missioners about the possibility of
lowering the Insurance Services Of-
fice (ISO) rating in May.
The ISO rating is a number be-
tween one and 10 that the insurance


industry assigns to firefighting dis-
tricts, based on an assessment of the
particular district's firefighting capa-
bilities.
To arrive at the ISO rating, the in-
surance industry assesses a multi-
tude of factors specific to the district
under review. This assessment in-
cludes the number of fire stations, a
fire department's response time, the
number of available firefighters, and
the effectiveness of the firefighting
equipment.
The higher the ISO rating, the
higher the insurance costs for home-
owners. Conversely, the lower the
ISO rating, the lower the insurance


costs.
Most of the county is presently
rated at nine, according to Bates.
But it is his belief that with the ap-
propriate measure taken, that rating
can be brought down to as low as a
four or five.
The how entails hiring the services
of a consultant firm that would then
conduct the appropriate assessment
and offer recommendations for how
the situation can be improved.
In his presentation to commission-
ers in May, a representative of the
consultant firm stopped just short of
making an outright promise that his

Boyd Presents Flag

To Commissioners


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer'

In a brief Sunday afternoon Sept.
:11 Patriot's Day Ceremony, at the
Courthouse flagpole, Congressman
Allen Boyd presented County Com-
mission Chairman Skeet Joyner with
a flag which flew over the nation's
capitol.
The Jefferson County High Scho.ol
JROTC presented the Colors, and
cadets raised the flag to half mast on
the courthouse flagpole.
: Approximately 50 residents at-
tended the ceremony which began
with Democratic Chairwoman Elea-
nor Hawkins addressing the crowd.
"The date of Sept. 11 is forever
stuck in our minds as one of horror,
fear and sadness as we remember
the people in those frightening pic-
tures of the Twin Towers coming
down, the plane hitting the Penta-'
gon and the plane crashing into the
Pennsylvania countryside," Hawk-
ins said.


"We can not do enough to memo-
rialize this date which, as we knew.
then, would change our lives .for-
-ever.
"It is fitting that we raise the flag
today, we think of the meaning of
n its colors.
"Red stands for hardiness and
* courage.
White is the symbol of purity and
innocence.
Blue is the color of vigilance,
perseverance and justice.
"Especially in the light or our re-
cent natural disaster, Hurricane Ka-
trina, our country must call on its
hardiness, courage, perseverance
and justice to work through these
difficult days." _
Rev. Dick Bailar gave an inspira-
tional prayer in remembrance of
those who died and those who con-
tinue to fight today to preserve the
American way of life.
9-11, and the JROTC raised the
flag to half mast.
The JROTC lead the crowd in the
Pledge of Allegiance and the cere-
mony concluded as the cadets re-
tired the Colors.

Celebrate America Service.

Recalls September 11, 2001


DEBBIE SNAPP
Staff Writer
The Celebrate America Commu--
nity Service, in observance of Sept.
11, Patriot's Day, held at First
Methodist Family Life Center, Sun-
day evening, was an inspiring pres-
entation of words and music.
This memorial service was held in
observance of the tragedies which
befell the American people Sept. 11,
2001, including the Twin Towers in
New York City, the Pentagon in
Washington D.C., and Shanksville,
PA. and the passengers and crew of
Flight 93.
Rev. David Hodges opened the
program with an invocation, fol-
loWed by the singing of Patriotic
Songs by the audience.
Words to the songs were in large
print on two screens stationed above
either side of the staging area.
Songs sung included: "God Bless
Our Native Land," "This Is My,
Country," "Flag Of The Free," and
"America The Beautiful."
After the singing of the "Star
Spangled Banner," the Pledge to the
Flag was recited in unison.
An Evening Prayer was offered by
Fr. Mal Jopling.
Clyde Simpson and Eleanor
Hawkins alternated readings from
the US Constitution.
Chaplin Len Dodson, U.S.. Navy,
Ret., gave Evening Meditation,
asking "Who is our neighbor?."
The names of the dead and fallen
victims were not read at this eve-
ning services but, their memories
and tribute to their bravery was hon-
ored.
Prayers were offered for the ca-
tastrophes on the coastline of LA.,
MS., and AL., that left so many peo-
ple dead, and many others to grieve
for those lost to the devastation of
Hurricane Katrina.
The host church Choral Group
plus one performed the "Battle
Hymn Of The Republic" as pictures
highlighting that terrible morning of
9/11/01 appeared on the two big
screens acting as a reminder of the
tragic attack on American soil
against innocent people.
A Responsive Reading of the Get-
tysburg Address was lead by Rev.
Ron Cichon.
Chaplain Thurman Moore, U.S.
Air Force, Ret., recognized our serv-
ices persons, and asked that
thoughts and prayers continue for
them and our country.
War and destruction continues to-
day because of a people that have
the distorted idea and belief that a
"Holy War" means killing every-
thing in sight.
It is sad that so much ignorance
can create so much hate and pain.
But, the outpouring of love will


continue to flow from the hearts of-
the American people left to grieve
because this is the American Way,
was the consensus of thoughts ex-
pressed.


pIZJJII

41w.o


"God Bless America" and "Let
There Be Peace" were sung ending
an evening of friendship and re-
membrance, and the Benediction
was offered by Rev. John Dodson.

Students across the country have

newly licensed teen driver, there's
one more "must-have" added into
the mix auto insurance,
According to the Insurance Insti-
tute for Highway Safety (IIHS),
drivers between the ages of 16 and
19 years old are four times more
likely to be involved in an automo-
bile crash than any other age group.
So, it's understandable why add-
ing your teenage son or daughter to
your auto insurance policy can re-
sult in a significant premium in-
crease.
"The crash statistics are stunning -
and the price increase that results

can be, too," said Rick Crawley, a

Drive Insurance from Progressive.
"Auto-insurance companies charge
premiums based on their cost of do-.
ing business and because each com-
pany's costs are different, they each
charge different rates. Just because
you've been with the same insur-
ance provider for years, that doesn't
mean ih.:, are able to provide you
with the best price especially when
adding a teen driver."
While it's nearly impossible to
avoid a rate increase when you add
a teen driver to your policy, the fol-
lowing tips may help curb the

sticker shock.
Shop around. Each car insurance
company's customers have different
claims experiences which can result
in each company charging drasti-
cally different rates for similar cov-
erages.
By simply shopping around you
could save hundreds of dollars.
Keep in mind that while some in-
surance companies offer good stu-
dent discounts or discounts for

taking a driving class, the key to
savings is in the final price. A com-
pany that offers new discounts may
have a lower overall price.
Don't go solo. In a majority of
cases, teen drivers who are added to
their parents' policy benefit from
their price breaks such as discounts
for owning a home, having several
vehicles, being married, etc.
Consider raising your deducti-
bles. It's been estimated that raising
you deductible to $500 could reduce
your--collision and comprehensive
prepaium by 15 to 30 percent.
Ask an expert. An insurance
agent or broker can help ensure you
are paired up with what best meets
your insurance and your budget
needs.

The business of producing a news-
paper has always held great fascina-
tion for me.
Whether I was working for dailies
or weeklies, the idea that each edi-
tion started from scratch and ended
with something that mirrored the
community struck me as a pretty
creative process.
This is a people oriented business
and that in itself makes it pretty ex-
citing.
Sometimes, however, because it is
a people oriented business, publish-
ers hear some pretty unreasonable
things.
Let me give you a few samples by
classification and my typical re-
sponse:
"You Didn't Do Enough": Yes
Ma'am we ran three pictures of the

room for more.
"You Did Too Much": Well sir,

you meant to say? Please understand
we can only print what you say and
not what you meant to say.
"Your Story Was All Wrong":-


BY BRAULIO L. BAEZ
PSC Chairman


Florida is fortunate to have the
country's largest underground fresh-
water reserves. Because Florida's
aquifers hold so much potable
water, many residents view the sup-
ply as endless. Unfortunately, it is
not.
In many parts of our state, there is
visible evidence of the severe deple-
tion that is occurring within our un-
derground reservoir system due to
population growth, development,
and saltwater intrusion.
In some areas, water requires sig-
nificant treatment before it is appro-
priate for human consumption.
Coastal cities that need additional
water supplies to keep up with de-
mand often must either tap into in-
land water supplies or use alternate
resources. Both options are expen-

Conservation can delay or perhaps
eliminate a utility's need to develop
new, and potentially more costly,
water supplies.
The Florida Public Service Com-
mission believes it is important for
consumers to be informed and ac-
tive in the conservation of our water
supply.
There are a number of simple
steps every residential consumer can
take around the house to decrease
use (which can result in lower bills)
and save for the future:
Wash only full loads in your
dishwasher. Automatic ,hhj.ihars
use 20 gallons of water per cycle,
regardless of load size.
When you wash d'ihe' by hand,
don't leave the water running,
Do not use running water to
thaw meat or frozen foods,.


Use the proper load setting when
you use your washing machine.
Use your garbage disposal spar-
ingly.
Repair leaks at faucets indoors
and out.
During basic maintenance or re-
pairs, check all pipes in order to pre-
vent future leaks.
Water your lawn between the
hours of 6 p.m. and 9 a.m. The sun
will not evaporate the water as
quickly as in the afternoon. A hearty
rain can eliminate the need for wa-
tering up to two weeks..
Do not water during windy con-
ditions.
Use a sprinkler timer. If you
don't have one, use the kitchen
timer.
Let water sink in slowly. Water
applied too quickly runs off.
Use mulch in plant beds to con-
trol weeds and retain moisture.

Writer Says Citizens Have


Right To Speak At Meetings


Dear Editor:
I attended the Planning Commis-
sion meeting Sept. 8. The agenda
was to continue discussion on two
comprehensive amendment re-
quests, US Highway 19 South, and
Waukeenah.
I attempted to read a statement
and after reading one paragraph,
Chairman Bill Tellefsen cut me off.
He decided my comments were not
pertinent to the issue at hand.
All the same, I would like to share
my statement with citizens of the
county:
I was born and raised in Tallahas-
see, but my grandparents and


mother were born and raised in Jef-
ferson County.
My grandfather lived on the Lynd-
hurst Plantation, and my grand-
mother just three houses from the
current City Hall.
My roots in Jefferson County go
back to the 1850's.
While growing up in Tallahassee,
she was a beautiful town, small
enough to be quaint, where every-
body knew each other, with woods,
fields, and lakes where you could
hunt, fish and play.
But suddenly in the 1990s, land
developers took over. Soon my be-
loved hometown was a sprawling,


congested mass of humanity, build-
ings, large subdivisions, asphalt,
concrete and vehicles.
Gone were the places where I
hunted, fished and played, replaced
.by urban sprawl, huge subdivisions,
shopping malls, office building
complexes, four lane highways, and
strip malls.
My beautiful hometown dies a
horrible death, strangled by devel-
opment and greed. I barely recog-
nize her now.
I attended her funeral almost six
-years ago, then moved to Jefferson
County, the place of my maternal
roots, a. place I now love, and am
proud to call home.


This is a place where I want to
live out my life, as my grandparents
did, both in their 90's when they
died.
But now the developers want my
new hometown. They want to
change the zoning requirements so
they can build huge subdivisions,
with one house on every acre.
I cannot bear to watch it also be
strangled to death by unbridled de-
velopment and greed.
I don't want to attend her funeral.
That would be the second saddest
day of my life.
Why do the developers want to
change the zoning from one house
per 5 acres, to one house per acre?
I think the answer is obvious...five
times more money in their bank ac-
counts.
First will come suburban sprawl,
then commercial sprawl, runoff and
flooding, traffic congestion, pollu-
tion of lakes and rivers, garbage
overfilling the landfill.
One day you won't recognize the
county as you once knew it.
If you love Jefferson County, pro-
tect her from the type of death suf-
fered by Tallahassee and many other
cities.
Protect, her by opposing the zon-
ing density amendments requested
by developers.
Sincerely,
Wayne Searcy

One Car Collision Has

Driver Hospitalized


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

A single car collision on East-
Washington Street, Sept. 2, caused
a 34 year old Metcalf, GA woman,
to be transported to Archbold Me-
morial for treatment.
City Police Corporal Richard
O'Neal reports Lizza Taylor An-
drews was traveling west on the in-
side lane of East Washington
Street, at approximately 5:29 p.m.
Andrews, who claimed to be a
diabetic, lost control of her 1985
Mercury and sideswiped a four
inch oak tree planted in the area.of
grass between the sidewalk in front
of 950 East Washington St.
The vehicle continued traveling
west along the sidewalk and grassy
area of East Washington St. struck
and uprooted a two inch oak tree
planted in the area of grass.
The vehicle continued traveling-


west and struck the mail box at 950
East Washington St., removing
both the mail box and post.
The vehicle continued traveling
-west, striking a power pole and
breaking it into three pieces, caus-
ing the. power line to fall across
East Washington St.
Continuing to travel west, the ve-
hicle struck an Historic District
sign post, removing both the post
and the sign. Still traveling west,
the vehicle then went through a
planted hedge line, striking both a
four inch oak and a three inch oak,
until coming to a rest after striking
a 24 inch oak tree.
Andrews was transported by Jef-
ferson County Fire Rescue.
The crash was not deemed to be
alcohol related.
Total damages were estimated at
$3,000 for the vehicle, $1,000 to
the power pole and $200 to the
Historic sign and post.
Damages to the residential prop-
erty were not estimated.

DEBBIE SNAPP
Staff Writer

Shena McFadden, Healthy Start--
Program Coordinator for the Jeffer-
son County Health Department, re-
ports that the Health Department is a--
partner in the Florida Bicycle Hel-
met Promotion Program.
Bicycle accidents are a major
cause of brain injury among chil-__
dren and adults.
The goal of the program is to in-
crease the use of. helmets among
children in low income households,
rural counties, and in counties that
experience a high incident of bicy-
cle related injuries and death.
The program is funded through a
grant from the Florida Department


of Transportation.
The program consists of training
on bicycle safety, training on the
proper fit and proper positioning of
bicycle helmets, and distribution of
bicycle helmets and educational ma-
terials. -
The Health department has re-
ceived 200 bicycle helmets from the
Florida Department of Health, Of-
fice of Injury Prevention for distri-
bution to county residents at no cost.
Helmets are available in adult.
youth, child, and toddler sizes.
Helmets and training are available
at the Health Department, at 255
West Washington Street 2:30 4:30
p.m. on Fridays beginning Sept. 16.

Rezoning
(Continued From Page 1)
Sion has scheduled a special work-
shop Sept. 22 to discuss the notice
provisions.
Consider that the two Comprehen-
EjL sive Plan amendments had to be ta-
bled last month, precisely because
of the failure of the system to notify
at least two adjoining property own-
ers of the proposed rezoning.
"This is an abomination," was the
t response of one planner, expressing


frustration and mortification over
the4repeated snafus.
The Waukeenah property rezon-
ing combines two parcels, one
zoned mixed-use suburban residen-
tial and the second zoned
agriculture-3.
Mixed-use suburban residential al-
lows up to four houses per acre, pro-
vided sewer and water services are
available. Without the availability
of water and sewer service (which is


the case in the present rezoning), the
number of allowable units is two per
acre.
The agriculture-3 designation al-
lows one house per three acres. The
rezoning request is to change both
parcels to residential-1, which af-
lows one house per acre.
Planners have scheduled the Wau-
keenah rezoning request for review
on Oct. 13, barring any more mis-
haps.

...""The attacks brought out the--
best in America. Our fellow citi-
zens responded with heroic sacri-
fice, unity, focus and strength.
"If we could talk to those heroes
who gave their lives Sept. 11,
2001, this is what they would say,
'I was just doing my job'. The
question for us then today is how
do we pay tribute to, and honor
those who died.
"And the answer then is to just do
our job. We must honor their mem-
ory by overcoming evil with good.
We must support our nations lead-
ers as they pursue peace and justice
in the world, and security at home.
We must foster the spirit of service
by helping those in need.
"So today, we say thank you to
those who responded with heroism,
compassion and courage on Sept.
11, 2001. And today, we will say
that we will continue to pay tribute
to and honor their memory by ful-
filling our obligation, our obliga-
tion to ensure that justice is done,
that freedom will prevail, and that
the principles that bur Nation was
founded on will continue to
endure," McKinney concluded.
