Violates Plai

LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

The County Commission last
week adopted a Comprehensive
Plan amendment that allows special
exceptions in agricultural areas.
Specifically, the change allows for
the placement of bed-and-breakfast
inns, hunting lodges and clubs, and
other outdoor recreational uses in
agricultural zones.
The adoption comes after review
b, ihe Department of Community
A'AIfairs (DCA), which is required to0
approve all Comprehensive Plan
amendments.
Planning Commission Attorney
Scott Shirley explained that the
amendment allows noncommercial
uses "by right". It allows commer-
cial uses such as racetracks and are-
nas by special exception, which re-
quires review and approval by the
Planning and County commissions.
The amendment results from the
lawsuit filed by opponents of the
Go-Kart Racetrack (That suit, inci-
dentally, remains in limbo almost a
year after its filing).
The amendment, in Shirley's


ge Change

n's intent
words, clarifies and makes explicit
what was already allowed in the De-
velopment Code but was not specifi-
cally spelled out in the Comprehen-
sive Plan.
In their lawsuit, opponents of the
racetrack charge that the facility is
inconsistent with the Comprehen-
sive Plan, since nowhere in the plan
is a racetrack listed as a permitted
use in an agricultural zone.
The Comprehensive Plan amend-
ment seeks to cure the alleged in-
consistency by specifically specify-
ing the list of permitted uses.
I-hesitate to call this a curative
amendment, because these uses are
_currently allowed by the Land De-
velopment Code and they are ;cer-
tainly occurring in different areas of
the county," Shirley said at an ear-
lier discussion of the issue. "But we
thought it a good idea to go ahead
and amend the Comprehensive Plan
to clarify the county's intent with re-
gard to these areas.
"We want to make sure there's no
argument," he continued. "We're not
including anything in the amend-
ment that's not already being al-
lowed right now."
Speaking in opposition to adoption


Accord Lets Out-Of-State


Disaster Teams Come Here


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

Commissioners last week ap-
proved a resolution that allows
emergency response teams from
Georgia and Alabama to come here
in the event of a natural or manmade
disaster.
At the same time, commissioners
are working on a plan that estab-
lishes the steps and procedures to be
followed in the aftermath of a natu-
ral or manmade disaster.
Chris Rietow, with the Apalachee
Regional Planning Council (ARPC),
explained that the Tri-Hazardous
Materials Response Mutual Aid
Agreement came about as a result of
.a problem identified in 2000.
That problem involved how to
deal with small-scale disasters that


didn't warrant a federal response, in
the event that Tallahassee -- the des-
ignated hazardous materials (haz
- mat) response team for the region --
couldn't respond because of a simul-
taneous occurrence.
The answer was to get the haz mat
teams from Dothan, AL, or
Valdosta, GA, to respond. But how
to reimburse them for their costs in
responding to an emergency across
state lines?
That's where the agreement comes
in. By its terms, the teams from
Georgia and Alabama are assured
reimbursement if they respond here,
as is Tallahassee if it responds to an
incident in either of the two adjacent
states.
The way Commissioner Jerry Sut-
phin interpreted the agreement, it
was a no brainer: Sign the agree-
ment and assure coverage in the
event of a disaster at no cost; or fail


to sign and risk no response or hav-
ing to pay for the response if it came
from out-of-state.
Rietow agreed that Sutphin's as-
sessment pretty much summed up
the issue.
"By not signing, you're putting the
county at risk," Rietow said. "This is
a safeguard. Hopefully, you won't
have to use it. But it's another tool in
the toolbox."
As for the disaster response plan
that Emergency Management Direc-
tor Carol Ellerbe and commissioners
are formulating -- called a Continu-
ity of Operations Plan (COOP) -- it's
supposed to address how govern-
ment and other county services will
continue to operate in the event of a
disaster.
The plan is being funded in part
by Homeland Security, which places
certain stipulations on its formula-
tion.

IMPACT fees are being considered for transportation and

impact fees for transportation and nation and law enforcement impact

other things. not to do anything in the end. But
That, at least, is the recommenda- we need to have the information."
tion of Commissioner Jerry Sutphin. Commission Chairman Skeet Joy-
Sutphin. recently recommended _ner reminded Sutphin that the proc-_


ess to implement an impact fee was
long, costly and complicated. But if
it was the board's decision to pursue
the matter, he would invite the con-
sultants back, he said.
The board agreed that a discussion
of the issue was warranted.
The county imposed impact fees
for fire protection and ambulance
service effective Aug. 1. The fees,
which apply only to new construc-
tion, are due at the time building


permits are pulled.
By law, monies collected from im-
pact fees must be kept in separate
accounts and can only be used for
capital expenditures, as dictated by
future growth.
The total cost to the county for the
formulation and implementation of
the fire and ambulance impact fees
was $15,000. That was $10,000 for
completion of the study justifying
the imposition of the fees and


$5,000 for implementation of the
fees. '
By definition, impact fees are one-
time charges levied against new
construction -- both residential and
commercial -- to help pay for the
. cost of the increased government
services demanded by the growth.
According to the experts, every
new residence imposes actual and
potential demands on government

of the amendment last week were
Santa Hokanson and Tom LaMott.
Hokanson argued that allowing
special exceptions within agricul-
tural areas went against the. intent of
the Comprehensive Plan, which
sought to limit these areas to farm-
ing. '
"In my opinion, the change does
not meet the intent, nor is-it appro-
priate," Hokanson said, referring to
the commercial nature of many of
the newly allowed enterprises.
"These uses are more compatible:
with mixed-use suburban residential
zones," she continued. "This change
is not as simple or as benign as it
appears and it goes contrary to the
.vision expressed by many residents
of this county. We are already los-
ing much of the agricultural land to
residential development, and this
opens it up even more."
LaMott expressed similar senti-
ments.
He noted that it didn't seem to
make much difference how many
citizens attended a meeting or how
much opposition they expressed to a
particular project, the developers al-
ways seemed to get their way.
"Recently, one person spoke in fa-
vor of a development and countless
citizens opposed it but the Planning
Commission voted 5-3 to refer it to
the County Commission for ap-
proval," LaMott said. "I think there

OKS Budget,

Village Rate

LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

The County Commission last
week approved a tentative budget of
$22,129,472 and a tentative millage
rate of 10 mills with hardly a peep
from the public.
The only question concerned a
citizen's request for an explanation
of the approved 10 mill rate versus
the rollback rate.
Commission Chairman Skeet Joy-
ner explained that the rollback rate,
which is 8.8756, discounts the in-
creased property values to produce
the same revenues as the previous
year.
By contrast, the 10 mill rate -- al-
though the same as last year -- will
produce increased revenues because
of rising property values. The 10
mill rate thus represents a 12.67 per-
cent increase over the rollback rate.
State law requires that taxing enti-
ties that opt to go with anything
other than the rollback rate must ad-
vertise a tax increase.
Joyner justified the increase by
saying that the additional money is
needed because of increases in sala-
ries, insurance rates, fuel costs and
loss of forfeiture funds due to Arti-
cle 5 reforms.
The entire hearing lasted about
five minutes.
The final hearing on the budget is
scheduled 6 p.m. Monday in the
courtroom.

SCORE Volunteers


Assist Businesses


Other people can be an important
part of expanding your small busi-
ness.
Not just your customers, employ-
ees and suppliers, but other entre-
preneurs and advisors as well.
Coaching, mentoring and advice can
all be invaluable help.
The bottom line about .networking
is that it works. If you don't think
you have time to network, think
again experts say you can't afford
not to.
Not only do you meet experienced
business owners, discover new ideas
and learn innovative ways to do
business, you get to know people.
That could mean finding quality
day care, a part-time housekeeper or
a car pool for the kids' soccer game
when you have a late sales meeting.
More and more, networking is be-
coming the bridge that unites work
and family.
As an entrepreneur guiding your
company to the next level, you're
seeking more than just financing.
You need an engine to best let
your company achieve its most im-
portant business goals. Generally,
that engine, that driving force, will


be money, such as a credit line from
the bank or a venture capitalist's
cash but not always.
Sometimes the right engine isn't
monetary at all. For example, what
you're primarily looking for may be
the individual with an important
skill you don't have but the com-
pany needs.
You may think only large compa-
nies and organizations need training
programs, or can afford to imple-
ment them.
The truth is that training is espe-
cially' important for small
businesses, because even tiny im-
_ provements in service or efficiency
can have an enormous impact on the
bottom line.
If your staff can boast special
skills or expertise, you will almost
certainly carve an important or prof-
itable niche for your business.
Fortunately, outside help is avail-
able. Smart business owners rely on
outside assistance such as SCORE
volunteer counselors -" to get them
through it.
Since 1964, these counselors have
assisted more than seven million en-
trepreneurs through counseling and
business workshops.

Opinion & Comment


IShort Takes & Other Notions


BY RON CICHON

Gov. Jeb Bush has consistently.
done a good job giving leadership .to
hurricane preparation and disaster
relief...Welcome to new Postmaster
Greg Tidwell and Fire Chief Jeffrey
Cappe.
Many groups 'and organizations in
Our Town have responded to the.
disaster that was Katrina in a variety
of ways. We have tried to be sure
every organization got coverage. If
we missed your efforts, please let us
know.
A dinner and dance is planned for
this evening at the Country Club.
Proceeds will benefit the American
Red Cross and Hurricane Katrina
Relief Fund.
"Hometown Get Down" set for 5
p.m. Sept. 30 downtown. Organizers


have put a lot of effort into this so it
should be a fun evening.
My friend Andy Creel has re-
turned to Ebenezer Baptist as Pastor.
Some years ago Andy worked part
time in our news department and
was a very good reporter.,
Our letters-to-the-editor columns
reflect the struggle between devel-
opment and efforts to retain a rural
flavor. Expect more of this struggle
as our county grows.
.\According to the American Home-
o- nert.- G asin oi :. A I.h-,nce, home-
owners typically stay in their homes
nine years longer than renters mak-
ing neighborhoods more stable.
Didja know "The Star-Spangled
Banner" was designated the national
anthem by Act of Congress in 1931,
117 years after it was written?
Quotable quote: "Money frees you
from doing things you dislike. Since


I dislike doing nearly everything,
money is handy." Groucho Marx.
Standard time begins 2 a.m. Oct.
30. Set clocks back one hour...
This year the USDA revised the
food pyramid for the first time in
more than a decade. New to the
pyramid is the recommendation that
people eat at least three servings of
whole grains a day. The old pyramid
didn't specify whole grains at all.
Word is there should be adequate
flu vaccine this year. Shots are rec-
ommended for everyone age 50 and
older, children age six months to 23
months, pregnant women, health
care workers, and people with heart
or lung disease.
Why is it that a slight tax increase
costs you $200, and a substantial tax
cut saves you 30 cents?
President Bush has pledged $200
billion of whatever it takes to repair
Hurricane Katrina's damage. Some


members of Congress want offset-
ting cuts. This will be an interesting
battle since Congressmen don't
want cuts that affect their districts.
The recently passed Highway bill
is loaded with pork that could be cut
to the tune of billions of dollars.
Signs of being over 60: People
call at 9pm and ask, "Did I wake
you?" You have a party and the
neighbors don't even realize it...You
quit trying to hold your stomach in
no matter who' walks into the
room... You get into heated argu-
niments about pension plans...Your
investment in health insurance is fi-
rially paying off.

Balancing Needed For Youths


For many of today's youth, life
has become a constant juggling act.
Balancing school, sports, commu-
nity activities, part-time jobs and re-
sponsibilities at home "is not an easy
task.
In fact, a recent survey indicates
that 59 percent of 15 to 17-year-olds
say they feel stressed every day.
However, balance is a skill that
can be mastered if encouraged at a
young age. That's why high schools
focus on communicating the impor-
tance of becoming well-rounded in
every aspect of a student's life.
Educators partner with companies
and organizations that reward stu-
dents based on their overall.-
package, rather than focusing solely
on the more traditionally areas of
academics or sports.
In fact, the Wendy's High School
Heisman Award where school ad-
ministrators from high schools
throughout the country are encour-
aged to nominate two seniors (one
male, one female) whose experi-.


ences reflect excellence in academ-
ics, athletics and community service
- has become popular throughout the
country.
"In the first 11 years of our pro-
gram, we've recognized more than'
124,000 students," says Tom Muel-
ler, president and chief executive of-
ficer of Wendy's.
"Each year, we see a growing
number of high schools choosing to
use Wendy's High School Heisman
to celebrate students who are able to
manage multiple things at once."
So how do students achieve this
much-needed balance? According to
Rose Rennekamp, vice president of
communications for ACT Inc. (the
company best known for it's college
entrance exam), developing time
management and organizational
skills is one of the first steps teens
can take to achieve balance in their
lives.
With this in mind, Wendy's High
School Heisman and ACT have cre-
,ated a checklist of advice for parents


and students on how to achieve a
balanced life:
Master time management. Are
you a morning person? Schedule
your classes, meetings and final re-
views early: Better in the evenings?'
Set aside time after dinner to study,
play sports or volunteer.
Get organized. Whether it's a
calendar, assignment book or a post-
it, plan each day or week in advance
so you're aware of the "to-dos" and
can plan accordingly.
Select course work carefully. A
high grade-point average is impor-
tant but college admissions officers
also want to see advanced placement
or honors courses. Such classes pre-
pare you for the college entrance
exam and college-level course work,
allowing you to spend time outside
the library.
Think quality over quantity. Be
committed to the extracurricular ac-
tivities you join. It's more impres-
sive to be on the executive board of
one or two organizations than to be


a member of five.
Give back. Community service
has become an essential part of soci-
ety. It demonstrates that you are an
active and responsible citizen and
allows you to gain exposure to dif-
ferent peoples, cultures and organi-
zations in the community.
Volunteering also "helps hone net-
working skills.
Celebrate diversity. Inquire
about scholarships and' awards
through your principal or guidance
counselor. Check free online schol-
arship services and apply for recog-
nition programs that showcase your
achievements. For more information
on the Wendy's High School Heis-
man program or to nominate a stu-
dent, log on to
www.wendysheisman.com.
Learn the art of saying "no". It's
easy to get overwhelmed when you
take on too much. Don't be afraid to
turn down opportunities; it's all in
the approach.


Plan Ahead For ER Treatment


Knowing the right questions to ask
at the emergency room could help
people get the best treatment. Yet a
survey found many ER patients
don't know what they should say to
their attending doctors and many
more do not know to ask about their
treatment options.
The survey commissioned by
Ethicon and conducted by Harris In-
teractive found that more than one-
third of adults feel only somewhat
or not at all confident that they
would know the right questions to
ask if they had to go to the ER for a
serious cut or laceration.


In addition, two in five adults said
they do not have a choice in the type
of care they receive once they are at
the ER.
"The results of this study indicate
the need for Americans to educate
themselves to take proactive control
over their medical care," said Ron-
ald Stram, chairman of emergency
services, St. Joseph's Hospital,
Syracuse, N.Y.
Dr. Stram points out that nearly
one-quarter of adults are not aware
that there are alternatives to stitches
- and that one in 10 said'their fear of
stitches may deter them from mak-


, ing a necessary ER visit. "Request-
ing topical skin adhesives in lieu of
traditional sutures can help elimi-
nate 'needle anxiety,' offer added
protection against dangerous bacte-
ria such as staph and E. coli, and
make recovery easier by enabling
patients to bathe immediately," he
explains.
Dr. Stram says following these
,tips can help people get the best
treatment:
Do not hesitate to ask the triage
nurse or the ER physician about the
course of care and treatment meth-
ods.


Carry a written list of medica-
tions that you are taking and aller-
gies that you may have.
This can help prevent serious drug
interactions or an allergic reaction if
you can't provide the information
yourself and your primary care phy-
sician is not accessible.
Review and understand the
terms of your insurance coverage
before an emergency strikes.
Always have your medical card
with you as, well as the phone num-
bers of your insurance carrier.

A diagnosis of cancer can be devastating. However, with
toda\ 's modern technologies the diagnosis of cancer does
not mean what it once did. The diagnosis of cancer
involves, the attempt to accurately identify the site of ori-
gin of the malignancy and the type of cells inoled, as
well as all parts of the body that might be affected. The
information may determine how the cancer will behave
and whether or not the cancer is likely to cause symptoms
and problems. There are many signs and symptoms that
may indicate the existence of cancer. The symptoms
maybe detected through imaging studies, (CT, MRI, Pet
Scan's). These symptoms may also be confirmed by blood
tests. Although these tests are not completely conclusive
on their own they are important clues your doctor uses to
put the whole picture in prospective. For example a fecal
occult test can indicate a variety of problems, While a
biopsy of tissue is the preferred method to establish a can-
cer diagnosis. With proper detective work, we can use
modem techniques to make your life better not just treat
you. It's riot just about treating your cancer. It's making
your life better.

S. The average increase in the price
manufacturers charge for brand

of general inflation through March. 2005.
according to the A'ARP -Rx Watchdog

More than one-halt of the drues in the sample

during the period from December 31. 20014 through
March 31, 2005. As a result ot this and

states that manufacturer list pnces for the

Monticello Men's Softball Team

Wins Class E National Tourney


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

The Daws Roberts/Marlin
Kinko/BC Power Design
(DRMKBCPD) Men's Softball
Team of Monticello, won the New
South United States Slow-pitch
Softball Association (USSSA)
Men's Class "E" National Tourna-
ment, held in Daphne, AL, Sept. 1.
The men, team, coached by Bill
Hock, and assistant coach Scott
Ferris, defeated both the number
one and number two ranked teams
in the state in the seven game
series.
Five of the seven games were
won by DRMKBCPD with the ten-
run rule, winning six of the seven
games and losing one.
In. the first game, DRMKBCPD
faced the "Long Shots", the num-


ber one ranked team in the state,
and won 18-4, for a 10 run rule
win.
In the second game, the Monti-
cello men went against "Who's
Next", the number two ranked team
and lost by one run.
They faced off for the second
time against the "Long Shots", in
the third game, and won 18-2,
again by the 10 run rule.
In the fourth game of the tourna-
ment, they squared off against
"Voodoo" and scoring nine runs in
the bottom of the seventh inning,
and won by one run.
DRMKBCPD played the "Under-
dogs" in the fifth game taking the
win by the 10 run -rule and faced
off against "Who's Next". They
took victories in both games by the
ten-run rule.
Todd Gunderson was awarded


the Offensive MVP honors for bat-
ting an impressive .781 and second
baseman Mike "Spike" Holm was
awarded with the Defensive MVP
Award for turning several double-
plays, and playing an error-free
game all throughout the day.
Ferris added that Holm and short-
stop Billy Bob Willis work so well
together that their teammates referee
to them as "The Monticello Con-
nection".
Other local members of the team
include Gleri "Spud" Bullock and
Billy "BJ" Johnson.
The team advances to the World
Tournament held in Panama City
Sept. 30 through Oct. 2.
Ferris said that there is usually
anywhere from'80 to 100 teams in
the, tournament and that trying to
predict how the men would per- -
form would be difficult to do.
"I see no reason that we won't
finish in at least the top five
- teams," he added.
"BC Power Design is owned by
local resident Bruce Collins and we
want to thank him for his sponsor-
ship over the last couple of years,"
concluded Hock.

Because of water damage to the
Howard Middle School gym floor,
there will be no girls volleyball this
year at the school.
Coach Corrine Stephenis said that
during the summer, the gym roof
leaked and the floor is now se-
verely warped and unfit for play.
She added that she regrets not be7-
ing able to have a volleyball team
this year but she was confident that
the work on repairs to the roof and
floor would be completed in time
for basketball season.
Superintendent Phil Barker said
that bids were currently beino ac-
cepted for repairs to the gymna-


sium roof, which is covered under
the school's insurance policy.
He said that once the repairs are
complete and there is no more leak-
age, follow-up repairs on the gym
floor will be made, also through the
insurance company.
"It should be done in the next
;se eral months or so," said Barker.
"We do not envision the repairs
causing a problem with basketball
season this year, but we do have a'
Plan-B if repairs are not complete.
"If we have to work out a sched-
ule for practices and games at ei-
ther the old high school gym or the
new high school gym, we'll do
that," he added.
Barker concluded that the HMS
students would be moved over to
the new high school location next
3 ear.

That's my concern."
Commission Chairman Skeet Joy-
ner's response to the expressed con-
cern was: "Okay. Do I hear a
motion?"
Which motion to approve was
made immediately and the amend-
ment adopted unanimously.
Commissioners were next sched-
uled to hold a final public hearing
on the revised Development Code, a
project that has been in the making
for almost five years now. .
Once again, however, the hearing
had to be rescheduled because of an
error in the public notice that listed
the meeting for Sept. 18, instead of
Sept. 15. -
Commissioners, in fact, were
scheduled to hold a joint meeting
with planners 7 p.m. Thursday jto
explore how and why public notice
errors are occurring so frequently? I'
In recent months, a series of pub-
lic hearings and meetings have had
to be rescheduled because of jri-
,ous errors in the legal advertise-
ments.

lawns, plants, and crops only when
necessary,. and in the morning be-
fore 10 a.m., and in, the evening
hours after 3 p.m., when lower tem-
perature and wind velocity reduce
the amount of water lost to evapora-

sembled here to remember com-
rades who are being held as
Prisoners of War or Missing in Ac-
tion. We must not forget the sacri-
fices these comrades are still
making and the suffering they are
still enduring for us and our way of
life.
"They must remain alive in our.
minds and hearts until we know
that they have returned home to
their loved ones, or have been
called to the bosom of our Heav-
enly Father. We must continue to
give moral support to their families
who continue to suffer alopg with
.them."
VFW Chaplain Byron Barnhart
offered the prayer, "Heavenly Fa-
ther, we beseech You to guide our
missing comrades through every
day and night. Give them unbound
strength and courage to continue
their efforts to survive and return to
their loved ones. If they perish,
Lord, we ask You to welcome them
to the house you have prepared for,
them where they will rest in peace.
Amen."
