Frustration with the city's han-
dling of overgrown lots, abandoned
houses and other "quality of life" is-
sues is causing Councilman Tom
Vogelgesang to propose that more
drastic measures be adopted to ad-
dress the problem.
Under the current rules, the proce--
dure to get property owners to clean
up their overgrown lots or demolish
abandoned buildings involves a long
and tedious process.
The city first must notify property
owners of the violation by certified
mail. It must then wait an extended
period, among other things, before it
can take action.
Often, the process is hampered by
a shortage of manpower, as City Su-
perintendent Don Anderson will
Vogelgesang wants the city to act
more quickly and forcefully. Among
other things, he wants the city to im-
pose fines on top of the cost of
cleaning up the property or demol-
ishing the building, if it becomes
necessary for the city to do so.
"I propose that we increase fines
so that people will know we're seri-
ous about overgrown properties and
abandoned houses," Vogelgesang
"I know we don't have a code en-
forcement board, but some streets
are becoming one ways because of
overgrowth and people are hiding in
"We need to take some meaning-
ful and enforceable action. I'm talk-
ing about holding property owners
accountable. I'm frankly miffed that
we can't seem to take care of the
Anderson's response was that Vo-
gelgesang's proposal was doable,
provided the city beefed up the
Street Department with an addi-
tional five or six employees.
Otherwise, the department could
not perform its other prescribed du-
ties and also handle aesthetic con-
siderations, he said.
But if the council insisted that he
do it, he would do it, Anderson said.
Vogelgesang reacted with evident
"It's not my job to go reporting
these things," he said. "You've got
garbage trucks that drive up and
down the streets. They don't see
City Attorney Brian Hayes inter-
ceded. He suggested that the way to
address Vogelgesang's concerns
was to amend the existing
ordinance. But the present meeting
was not the time to do so, he said,
referring to the late hour.
The council agreed to take up the
issue again at its October meeting.

County Receives $105,750 For
Old JC Public Library Building
Senior Staff Writer
The county has found a buyer for
the former library building on North
She is Angela Dombro, of La-
mont. Dombro's offer of $105,750
was the highest of the three bids the
county received last week for the
historic two-story building. The
other two bids were for $78,000 and
Clerk of Court Dale Boatwright
said Dombro gave no indication of
what she plans to do with the build-_
ing, which is on the eastern fringe of
the downtown district.
Commissioners' plan is to use the
motleyy from the sale -- in combina-
tion with the $500,000 the county
received from the Legislature -- to
renovate the former high school
buildings on Water Street.
Once renovated, the former high
school buildings will serve as
county offices for such operations as
building inspections, zoning and
planning, and grant writing.
The buildings will also house the
operations of the property appraiser,
tax collector, state attorney and pub-
lic defender, among others.

On one level, since little action

must rely on dialog to tell the story.

Must We Think In Extremes?
BY RON CICHON
In 43 years of journalism I have
met my fair share of folks who take
the position, "My mind is made up,
don't confuse me with the facts."
There's probably some comfort
for those folks, 'cause they never
stretch their thinking. It's whenwe
attempt to broaden our horizons and
thinking that we struggle with
Often those struggles are difficult
and painful as we consider things
we hadn't much thought about be-
fore. and maybe change our minds.
What concerns me is we seem to
be b 6coi"ihg'a 'o'ciety of filks 'who
are no', interested in facts because
ouriiniids are made tip.
Everything is black or white and
there is no gray.
We're a deeply polarized society,
If there is a message in the last few
elections, it is that.
President Bush has been a polariz-
ing figure. Odd that would be the
case when in 2000 he campaigned
as a uniterr not a divider." Turns out
he's a first class divider and our po-
larization reflects that.
His supporters will tell you he's
done a terrific job. The Iraq war is dle ground?
going extremely well, there was no
delay in federal response Hurricane
Katrina and the mounting federal
debt is quite okay. We just need

Detractors are just as hard on the
other side. They think his presi-
dency has been a disaster for the
country, the war in Iraq is rapidly
becoming a quagmire, federal re-
sponse to Hurricane Katrina was
wretchedly inept, and the mounting
federal debt is a result of Bush's tax
cutting frenzy and unnecessary war
I think that pretty well summarizes
My question is where is the mid-
Must we be in one camp or the
And, are we so wedded to a party
or candidate that we can't admit
when a policy is failing or mistakes
I appreciate people on the left and
right who are independent thinkers.
Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel, a Re-
publican, recently criticized the ad-
ministrations handling of the war
and said bluntly, "we're losing."
Connecticut's Senator Joe Liber-
man, a Democrat, has been very
supportive of Bush's war effort in
Too bad these independent think-
ers are rare.
So, we're out there hewing the
party line, Bush is good, Bush is
bad, blah, blah.
Much of the blame for this goes to
the Washington spin doctors whose
lines we pick up and use.
So, when criticism was leveled at
the federal government over the Ka-
trina response, the White House
called it the "blame game."
No, said critics, we're talking
Finally, the President said he took
responsibility for the failures of the
federal government's response to
the Gulf Coast disaster.
Good for him. I admire that much
more than I did the White House
spin about "not playing the blame
We went through the same drill
when critics of. the Iraq war
The spin doctors immediately
went on the attack and said critics
were letting the troops down.-

How will we ever get out of this
mess of polarization where we seem
to be in one camp or another?
As long as we are not willing to let
facts speak for themselves, and en-
gage in honest debate we do a great
-disservice to our country.
Property Rights In Jeopardy
BY TOM DEWEESE
Put yourself in the homeowner's
shoes. You buy a home for your
family. Perhaps it's even handed
down from your father or grand fa-
It's a place you can afford in a
neighborhood you like. The children
have made friends. You intend to
stay for the rest of your life.
As you plant your garden, land-
scape the yard, put up a swing set_
for the kids, you mold your land
into a home, unknown to you, cer-
tain city officials are meeting around'
a table with developers.
In front of them are maps, plats
and photographs of your home.
They talk of dollars big dollars.
Tax revenues for the city, huge prof-
its for the developer. A shopping
center with all the trinnmmings begins
to take shape.
You're not asked for'input or per-
mission. You're not even notified
until the whole project is finalized
and the only minor detail is to get
rid of you.
Then the pressure begins. A notice
comes in the mail telling you that
the city intends to take your land.
An. offer of compensation is made,
usually below the market price you
could get if you sold it yourself.
The explanation given is that,
-since the government is going to"
take the land, it's not worth the old
market price. Some neighbors begin
to sell and move away.
With the loss of each one, the
pressure mounts on you to sell. Vis-
its from government agents become
routine. Newspaper articles depict
you as unreasonably holding up
community progress. They call you
Finally, the bulldozers move in on
the properties already sold. The
neighborhood becomes unlivable. It
looks like a war zone.
Like being attacked by a conquer-
ing army, you are finally
surrounded, with no place to run;
but the courts. However, you're cer-
tain of victory.

mother with children."
If children are lost outside, they
should never wander away from
where they first became lost.
If that place becomes too danger-
ous because of severe weather or an-
other threatening situation, children
should go to the nearest safe spot
They should make noise by yell-
ing, blowing a whistle, or otherwise
attracting attention. This will help
bring someone to their rescue.
"Stranger danger" is a phrase we
hear often, but it is not an effective
safety message for children.
Child advocates point to incidents
where lost children hid from rescu-
ers because they were "strangers" or
willingly walked away with some-
one who didn't fit ..their idea of a
"Teaching your children to watch
out for bad-looking strangers is not
going to keep them safer," said
Nancy A McBride, national safety
director for the National Center for
Missing & Exploited Children
Most children find the stranger-
danger message confusing. When
asked, children will often describe a
"stranger" as someone who is ugly
They don't think nice-looking or
friendly people are "strangers." If
someone talks to a child or is around
a child more than once, that person
loses his or her "stranger" status.
The child then thinks he or she
"knows" the person.
NCMEC recommends that you
teach your child to check first with a
trusted adult, take a friend along,
and learn how to avoid and get out
of dangerous situations.
Practice "what if' scenarios with
your children. Reinforce these skills
during a trip to the mall or park. Re-
assure your children that you are
there for them, and remind them that
there are other people who can help.
If your children are lost, they may
be surrounded by many "strangers"
who can help them if they ask. "We
need to give children safety nets of
people they can go to if they need
help," said McBride.

With Humane Education
The co-founders of Citizens Sup-
porting Animal Welfare (C-SAW,)
Wendy G. Moss and Betsy J.
Pertierra, recently met with Sandra
Kay Collins, principal of Jefferson
County Elementary School to dis-
cuss a humane education program.
C-SAW currently sponsors the
KIND News Program for grades
three through five at the elementary
This classroom newspaper with a
focus on character education is
published by the Humane Society of

C-SAW hopes to expand the Hu-

classrooms and organizations to in-

more responsible and compassionate
Future plans include presentations
to classrooms and local organiza-

sibility towards animal welfare in
C-SAW is a non-profit 501-c-3 or-
ganization based in Jefferson-
Executive Director Moss said the
goal of C-SAW is to improve the
quality of life in our community by
balancing the rights of citizens with
those of the animal population.
C-SAW Chairman Pertierra said,
"Humane education will teach our
youngest citizens the value of treat-
ing people and animals with kind-
ness and respect. Humane Education
is much more than teaching children
about animals. It is a process in
which children develop compassion,
a sense of justice, and a respect for
all living creatures.
Studies have shown that individu-
als who have abused animals as
youths were more than five times
more likely to commit violent
crimes, four times more likely to
commit property crimes, and three
times more likely to have drug or
disorderly conduct offenses than
A child who admits to abusing
animals or who indicates that animal
abuse is taking place in the home
should be regarded as a possible vic-
tim of child abuse.
Humane Education can be used by
teachers as a tool to recognize chil-
dren who are at risk for abuse in the
