In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, -
local officials are updating plans for
emergency operation, should a dis-
aster strike the County.

Director Carol Ellerbe describes this
Bear in mind, this is only an ex-
ample and not a reality:
A severe tropical storm is headed
for the area with widespread flood-
The banks of the Aucilla River
are already close to overflowing.
Ellerbe learns via the weather ra-
dio, Tallahassee weather, National
Hurricane Center and State Emer-
gency Operation Center, that wide-
spread flooding is imminent.
At this point, the local Emergency
Management Operation Center on
North Jefferson, becomes Command
Central for disaster activities.
Immediately upon receiving this
information, Ellerbe, contacts Public
Information Officer Larry Halsey
and law enforcement authorities to
publicize an evacuation order.
Officials would identify an
evacuation route deemed safe to
move citizens out of storm's way,
and open the Emergency Shelter at
the new Jefferson County High
School for evacuees.
"This is a risk shelter, which has
been built to meet hurricane safety
specifications," Ellerbe explained.
All the while Ellerbe remains in
contact with the Karen Hagan, Cap-
tial Area Red Cross Director, and
Chris Floyd, Emergency Disaster
Services Director of the area.
When the emergency shelter is
opened at the high school, the Red
Cross comes in to manage feeding
Ellerbe said the Sheriff and law
enforcement personnel maintain se-
curity at the shelter.
Likewise the Health Department
is on hand to manage health related
Fire Rescue and EMTs are on
hand to do what may be necessary.
As the storm ends and it is possi-
ble to move around, a Damage As-
sessment Team moves in and
reports their findings to Ellerbe,
who in turn reports them to the state
officials, and ultimately to FEMA.
Ellerbe reports that there are
some 20-30 volunteers in the co
who have taken the Red Cross
aster Training courses offered peri-
odically at the local Emergency
Management Operation Center.
Basic disaster service courses in-
clude topics such as: Introduction to

TO Remember Names
The importance of remembering
someone's name when you meet
him or her can be critical, especially
in the increasingly competitive
world of business.
Remembering a person's name
will make you come across as more
professional and credible, and make
the person you meet feel good and
as a result, they may be more recep-
tive to your thoughts and ideas.
BJ Schreuder, general manager of
the Marriott Druids Glen Hotel &
Country Club, offers several tips on
how he remembers names and
makes guests feel welcome. The
key, he says, is in four easy steps
everyone can implement, whether at
an important business meeting or
when meeting someone on the golf

Short Takes & Other Notions
BY MERRY ANN FRISBY
I used to live in a squirrel--
demilitarized zone. One of my
neighbors hated them, the other
loved them. Historically, Monticello
is a pecan town and my observation
is that most people here hate squir-
rels. I assume that a long history of
pecan abuse by the squirrels has
caused this enmity.
I have a lovely, ,,syvet neighbor
Her husband was a pecan man.
When she gardens in her white
gloves, she keeps a pellet gun near.
Occasionally you will hear her blast-
ing away at the creatures in her
yard. I have also seen her swerve
her car to try to hit squirrels.
My neighbor to the other side was
Darlene Boles. She absolutely
adored the furry creatures. She had
set up a contraption which she
called "Squirrel City." It was a se-
ries of ropes, long Plexiglas tubes
and wires. The prize at the end of
the obstacle course was a large ear
of corn. The corn hung from a
thread too thin for a squirrel to grip.
Most squirrels would run the ob-
aijcle course oyer and o,\er again
Once they got to the **corn they
would manage to grab a few bites
before they fell to the ground. Ex-
Sidney was the one, and the only
squirrel that learned to grasp with
his tiny back feet. He would hang on
the corn happily munching away,
until his small feet were too tired
arid he would release his grip.
Sidney would squeeze himself
through the small tubes, climb the
rope ladder like a. marine with a
knife in his teeth. He was sleek and
so fat that he began to have trouble
squeezing his girth into the tubes.
He always managed.
So, I have Annie Oakey on one
side; 'and Born-free oin the olier
side. I don't like the fact that the
squirrels eat all my bird food, but I
don't shoot at them either. I bought
a "squirrel proof' bird feeder that
thwarts most of the critters. They
cannot get to the seed and are so
frustrated that they often urinate on
top of the feeder in frustration. It
rolls harmlessly off and the birds
smugly continue to eat under the
steel canopy of the feeder.
Sadly, Darlene passed away sev-
eral years ago and I sometimes won-
der what happened to squirrel city. I
also do not know if all her creatures
gravitated to my yard or met their
maker on the other side.
Last week as we sat on our porch
waatphing some redwing black birds.
at our feeders, we looked over to see
a small juvenile squirrel hanging
from his back feet eating seed out of
my formerly "squirrel-proof' feeder.
I have not named him Sidney
Junior, but I might.

Humane Society Seeks
The Humane Society will hold a
pet Adopt-a-thon, Friday, Saturday
and Sunday at Petsmart in Talla-
Friday hours are noon until 8
p.m., Saturday is 9 a.m. until 8 p.m.
and Sunday is 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.
The adoption fee has been
dropped from $100 for puppies and
kittens and $75 for adults cats and
dogs, to $50 for all of the animals.
"A two for one sale," quipped Bau-
Director of Kennel Operations
Tina Ames stressed the urgent need
for volunteers, especially those
who can help run the adoption
booth on Saturday, the biggest day
for adoptions during the weekend.
A large number of animals, in-
cluding those hard to place because
of their ages, often find homes dur-
ing these adopt-a-thon.
During the adopt-a-thon in May,
22 animals, 16 canines and six fe-
lines, were adopted, and the num-
bers are expected to more than dou-
ble that during this event, but vol-
unteers are needed in order to make
the event a success.
A few of us can't keep doing it
all alone," said Ames. "It's like
Caroline (Carswell) always says,
many hands make light work."
She added that she knows that
everyone can not donate large
quantities of time, but if many
come together, each donating a lit-
tle bit of time to help with the
booth, much could be accom-
plished and as a result, many ani-
mals find homes.
"If we're going to be successful
in helping these animals find loving
homes, the solution is simple. We
need the hands and the hearts to
help them. A little bit of time goes
a long way."
During last months regular meet-
ing, members decided that in order
to increase the number of adoptions
during the Adopt-a-thon, the adop-
tion fee would be reduced across
the board for animals of all ages.
"It's much better than housing
and caring for these animals for
months on end and then have to put
them down in the long run," said
Shelter Caretaker Cheryl Bautista.
"Reducing the fee wouldn't bring
in what we have spent on the ani-
mals getting them ready for adop-
tion, but, it would save the fee for
euthanasia and get these animals
into homes, that's better no matter
how you look at it." -
In related news, the next regular r
meeting will be held Monday at 7

"Once we got over there, we
were convoy support," he added.
Miller said that his unit's duty was
to head, follow and ride between
convoys to enable the soldiers to
protect the units from attack, basi-
cally serving as the barrier between
those in the convoy and those at-
- tacking them, generally spending
more time on the road than they did
"There was really nothing while I
was there," said Miller. "We were
very lucky." He added that if their
convoy had of gone under attack,

Army until I retire," said Miller.
"I've always had a passion for the
military, so I joined the National
Guard so I could earn my degree at
the same time," said Miller.
"I feel patriotism, pride and love
for the United Sates, it's the best
country in the world," he added.
"We didn't provoke what happened
on 9-11 and we didn't deserve it.
"I just want to be a part of some-
thing that assures that nothing like
that ever happens here again," said
Miller. "It is an honor to defend
