City Rezones 26 Acres,

Increases Sewer Rates

Senior Staff Writer

The City Council last week per-
mitted townhouses to be built in the
downtown district, rezoned 26 acres
on Goldberg and Rocky Branch
roads, made annexation mandatory
under certain circumstances, and in-
creased the monthly sewer rate.
The series of ordinances, which
the council adopted in a matter of
minutes in four separate public hear-
ings Tuesday night, drew zero citi-
zen participation.
Ordinance 2005-07 amended the
land development regulations to al-
low townhouses as a special excep-
tion use in B-l or business zoning

Also Makes
Annexation i

Per the ordinance, townhouses
must consist of at least two, attached
single-family units with fire walls
between them; the design of the
structures must be compatible with
the historic character of the district;
and the Historical Design Review
Board must review all applications,
among other conditions.
Ordinance 2005-08 rezoned a
newly annexed 26-acre parcel in the
northeast quadrant of the city from
agricultural and R-1 to R-1, or resi-
dential single-family.

The owner of the property --
Barry Wyche, of Wyche Investment
Properties -- plans to build a small
subdivision on the parcel.
Ordinance 2005-10 requires non-
'city residents who use the city's wa-
ter or sewer services to annex into
the city if their'properties become
contiguous with the city.
The requirement applies only to
new users, not to those already us-
ing the city's water and sewer serv-
ices prior to the adoption of the
Ordinance 2005-11 increases the
sewer service rates for a year to
make up for the current deficit in the
budget. The increase is supposed to
"sunset", or stop automatically, at
the end of a year.

Goal Is To Get Funding

From 2 State Agencies

Senior Staff Writer

The city and the county last week
respectively adopted or promised to
adopt a joint resolution that will per-
mit a private citizens group to pur-
sue preliminary funding for a
countywide central sewer system the
group is trying to bring to fruition.
Dick Bailar and Bruce Balaster
presented the appropriate petitions
to the City Council and the County
Bailar is spokesperson for the Jef-
ferson. County Utility Development
Committee, the group seeking the
funding. Balaster, with the Apa-
lachee Regional Planning Council
(ARPC), has been helping the group
identify possible sewer projects and
funding sources.
As Bailar and others explained it
last week, the joint resolution -- es-
sentially an interlocal agreement be-'
tween the city and the county -- was
necessary to secure funding from
the Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP). That's because,
although the proposed central sewer
system is largely a county project,
the city alone can apply for DEP
funds, according to the agency's

The -interlocal agreement essen-
tially commits the city and the
county to paying a portion of the
$60,000-or-so initial study that is re-
quired before anything else can take
place. But the chances that the city
or the county will actually have to
put out any money, are supposed to
be very slim to none.
At most, the city and the county
would be out $15,000 each, accord-
ing to the system's promoters.
Here is how the scenario is sup-
posed to play out.
The Jefferson County Utility De-
velopment .Committee reportedly
has assurance of a $30,000 grant
from the Department of Community
Affairs (DCA) for the study.
At the same time, the inter-local
agreement allows the committee to
approach the DEP and secure a low-
interest loan for the remainder of the
study's cost. About $30,000 or so,
it's estimated.
The study, Bailar pointed out, is a
necessary first step to determine the
best route for system as well as its
cost, among other things.
The beauty of the deal, according
to Bailar and others, is that the com-
munity is almost assured a low-
interest loan from the DEP for the
construction of the system, should
the decision be to proceed with con-

struction once the study is com-
pleted. And money from this second
loan can be used to pay back the
cost of the study.
Meaning that the only way the city
and the county would be liable for
paying back the original loan would
be if the community decided not to
proceed with construction.
"This is a beginning step that will
have a tremendous impact on the
county," Bailar told officials.
The Jefferson County Utility De-
velopment Committee formed in.
February to explore the feasibility of
a central sewer system here. Con-
cerns about the environment and the
desire to promote economic devel-
opment sparked formation of the
group, which initially focused its at-
tention on the Lloyd area.
With time, however, the group's
scope grew to include consideration
of a countywide sewer system.
Bailar has described the commit-
tee as consisting of city and county
officials, representatives of the busi-
ness community, and property own-
ers with an interest in the economic
growth of the Lloyd interchange
Officials and others interested in
economic development believed the
time is propitious for pursuing such
a project, given the state's interest in
promoting sewer-related capital im-
provement projects.

funding for these types of facilities

Almost a year and a half after the -
Jefferson County Kennel Club
(JCKC) began offering card games,
business continues to be brisk.
At least at the poker tables.
The card games, in fact, are mak-
ing up for the declining revenues on
the dog racing side of the track.
"It's Godsend," JCKC owner and
operator Steve Andris said last
week. "The poker is helping us to
stay afloat."
He said attendance at the poker
games was slightly on the upswing
at present. But it tended to fluctuate,
depending on a variety of factors, he
Yes, the high cost of fuel was one
factor, Andris said. As people's dis-
cretionary money dwindled, gam-
bling was one of the things that
tended to suffer, he said.
But overall, the poker games had
proven Godsend, he reiterated.
It's appears to be the same story
everywhere, judging from a recent
story in the Orlando Sentinel.
According to the Sentinel story,
revenues from card games are help-
ing offset shrinking profits from dog
racing in the state's 13 greyhound
tracks that offer poker games.
Figures cited in the story from the
Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering,
which is part of the Florida Depart-

ment of Business and Professional
Regulation, show a correlation be-
tween declining racetrack revenues
and poker-room revenues.
- Statewide, according to the Senti-
nel story, the total amount of taxes
and fees the state has collected from
bets on racing at dog tracks plunged
from $33.7 million in 1997 to $12.7
million last year -- a 62 percent de-

During the same time, however,
the state's take of revenues from
card games at the 13 greyhound
racetracks climbed from $336,469
to $1,672,015 -- an increase of 397
"It's bringing people back to what
was a dying business," the manager
of one of the state's greyhound park
is quoted as saying.

Drivers Admit

IRoad Rage Bouts

The odds of encountering road
rage may be higher than you think.
F According to a recent survey by
Farmers Insurance Group, more
than 10 percent of drivers admit
they have intentionally cut off other,
drivers or have wanted to force them
off the road during the past year.
Fortunately, there are ways drivers
can avoid becoming victims of such
dangerous driving habits.
Aggressive driving such as speed-
ng, tailgating, unsafe lane changes,
failing to signal intent to change
lanes or other forms of negligent or
inconsiderate driving often escalate
into what has commonly become
Inown as road rage.
Road rage is defined as an assault
with/a motor vehicle or other dan-
gerous weapon by the operator or
passengers) of one motor vehicle
6n the operator or passengers) of
another motor vehicle, or is caused
Bly an' incident that occurred on a
roadway and is considered a crimi-
nal offense.
According to the survey, most
4oad rage occurs among younger
'I Nearly half (48 percent) of respon-
dents who said they had shouted or
gotten into a honking, match with
another driver were in the 18 to, 34

age group,. which also ranked high-
est among those who said they had
cut off another driver or felt like
forcing them off the road (16.5 per-
Farmers recommends the follow-
ing tactics to avoid becoming a vic-
tim of road rage.
Always use your indicators
when changing lanes or merging. *
Be courteous; If another driver is
signaling to change into your lane
ahead of you, let him.
Ignore drivers who make angry
gestures at you. Separate yourself
from them if possible.
If a vehicle is tailgating yours,
attempt to 'change lanes and let it
If you are being followed, drive
to a nearby crowded public place
and call for help or drive to a nearby
police station. You can also alert po-
lice via.a cell phone.
Never provoke another driver.
"Highway safety officials say that
aggressive driving and road rage are
very similar to impaired driving,"
said Jeff Beyer, senior vice presi-
dent for Farmers Insurance Group.

themselves and. their passengers
from these perpetrators quickly, but

Opinion & Comment.

Ailments Make Sneak Attacks

I'm about to celebrate my 62nd
birthday and shortly thereafter see
my doctor for my annual physical.
The. birthday is fine,' it's the an-
nual physical I'm thinking about.
I try to.give some thought to what,
I'm gonna say in my annual "State
of the Body'" report.
Of course, I'll tell him about the,
bad shoulders and creaky knees just
like I've been telling him for the
past several years.
But, now I've got some new stuff:
to report.
Recently I woke up to find .my
lower lip was a little swollen. I"
looked in the mirror and wondered
aloud, "what the heck is this?"
Either my wife smacked me while
I slept or I thrashed about and. hit,
myself in the mouth.
I check with her and she vowed
she didn't hit me. Since she-has no
history of violence, I accept her de-
But, did I smack myself? I dunno.
. Alas, the swelling went down fairly
soon after I awoke and I went about
business as usual.



Ron Cic/ion

Do I discuss this with my doctor at
the risk of him wondering about my
mental health? I haven't decided this
yet. .
Then there was the other morning
.when Iwalked out;to,gqt)the news-
paper around 5 a.m. Sauntering
down the driveway, I felt a sudden
pain in my hip.
Truth is it hurt like thunder. What
is this? I wondered.
Moving slowly, I proceeded to get
the paper. By the time I reached the
garage, my hip was okay.
After the lip incident, I didn't dis-


cuss the hip situation with my wife.
I don't want her to think I'm falling
apart and she should start looking
for a younger man. .
Overall, I'm in pretty good shape.
I do a lot of crunches every
morning lift v.eight on a ie'ular
schedule and ride a bicycle for aero-
bic exercise.
I haven't been out of work a day
for sickness in years.
Apart from the normal sniffles and
colds, things are pre tt, good.
It's these sneak attacks that I don't

You begin to wonder. what's.
gonna happen next? Will my ears,
fall off? While I'm sleeping? In the.
shower? At breakfast?
Years ago a lady in my church ob-'

As the birthdays keep adding up,,
I'm convinced she was. right.
Then there was the bumper sticker.;
I saw in Panama City Beach which
read, "Old Age Isn't For Sissies."
I guess that's about right.
I notice my "older" friends get to-

their medications, their aches and

The other day, I asked my wife

ply not old enough to understand
how this stuff works.

It's Time To Get Flu Shots

As Americans live healthier and
longer lives,, there is still one tool
overlooked by' many that may pre-
vent an average of 36,000 deaths
and more than 200,000 hospitaliza-
tions each year.
An annual influenza vaccination is
beneficial to those at an increased
risk for influenza and its complica-
tions, and health officials urge those
groups to call their health care pro-
yiders today to schedule a vaccina2-
tion appointment.
The National Foundation for In-
fectious Diseases (NFID) warns that
influenza is a severe and sometimes
life-threatening disease and advises
people, especially those ,at an in-
creased risk for influenza-related
complications (such as pneumonia),"
to be vaccinated this fall.
The Centers for Disease Control
anrd Prevention (CDC) stresses the
importance of annual influenza vac-,

cination for all persons in high risk
groups, including adults 65 years of
age and older; people living in nurs-
ing homes and other long-term care
facilities; children aged 6 through
23 months; pregnant women; -and
persons aged 6 months and older
with medical conditions (like
asthma or diabetes).
"Many people don't realize they,
-fall into a high-risk group and need
to ask their physicians for an influ-
enza vaccination," says William
Schaffner, MD, of NFID and Van-
derbilt University School of Medi-
To increase the level of protection
for persons in high-risk groups, the
CDC recommends annual vaccina-
tion for health care workers.
Family members and others in
close contact with all high-risk per-
sons and with children 6 months and
'younger should also be immunized

in order to protect high-risk groups.
Those at high risk are encouraged
to receive an influenza vaccination
in the beginning of October.
As, of early November, vaccine
may be available to all who wish to
reduce their risk of genini influenza
and is a good idea for anyone who
wants to stay healthy this season.
"Once vaccinated, you are pro-'
tected within two weeks 'and this
protection lasts throughout the sea-
son," says Susan'J. Rehm, MD, of.
the NFID and the Cleveland Clinic.
"It is important to be immunized
against influenza every year because
the viruses that cause the disease of-
ten change, and a new vaccine is
made before each season."
Influenza is a highly contagious
viral infection of the 'nose, throat
and lungs that is spread through the
air by sneezing and coughing or by
direct contact with people who have

the disease.
People who get influenza experti-
ence a high fever, chills, a dry
cough, headache, runny nose, sore
throat, muscle and joint pain, and
extreme fatigue lasting several days
to weeks.
Influenza vaccine is safe and ef-
fective and is available in two
forms: an injectable vaccine, ap-'
proved for anyone, healthy or high-
risk, 6 months or older; and a nasal'
vaccine for use in healthy people
aged 5-49 years.
The rijectable influenza vaccine
should not be given to anyone who'
has a hypersensitive reaction to eggs
or who experienced an allergic reacw
tion to a previous dose of the vac-'
cine or any vaccine components.
Children 6 months to 9 years of
age who are receiving influenza
vaccine for the first time will need,
two doses at least one month apart

Students Need Fiscal Lesson

For many college 'freshmen, there
may be more of the third "R," "rith-
metic," that they need to know than
they realize. ,
Financial responsibility is an oft-
overlooked priority for college'
freshmen. As they prepare to begin:
their adult lives, however, learning.
to handle their finances is just as im-,
portant as what they learn in the:
With the financial pressures of
school and social life, many students
experience the challenge of dealing
with a past-due bill or unpaid debt at,
one time or another.
When debts like credit card and
cell phone bills pile up, they can
seem overwhelming but there are a
few important steps all students can
take to deal with debt responsibility.
"When called about an unpaid bill,
the most important thing for a young
person to do is communicate, not

panic," said Gary Rippentrop, CEO
of ACA International, the Associa-
tion of Credit and Collection Profes-
sionals. "If you are having financial
challenges, talk with the collector
and work out a payment plan that
you can manage."
Working with a collection agency
is an important step in resolving
debts and avoiding financial chal-
lenges in the future. If you are con-,
tacted by a collector:
Don't avoid the collector: If you
have questions about your bill or be-
lieve you do not owe the debt, let
the collector know immediately in
If the first communication is by
phone, the collector will need to
.send you a written notification
within five' working days of the
amount of the debt and the name of
the creditor who referred the debt to

Once an initial contact by a third-
party collector on a debt has been
made, you have 30 days to dispute
the debt, the collector will then pro-
vide you with a response to the is-
sues you raise.
If you do owe the bill, let the col-
lector know when payment can be
expected. If you are unable to pay it
in full, explain why and ask the col-
lector to work with you on a plan
that works for both of you.
Ask the collector about options
and programs: Although collecting
past-due accounts is the collector's
business, collection professionals
are also experienced and able to
work with you in finding solutions
to debt issues.
If you are having financial diffi-
culties, ask about an extended pay-
ment plan or other payment options.
Act early: Take action as early as
_possible to get your financial situa-

tion under control.
If your debts are mounting, the
most important thing is to look at:
your finances.
If your monthly payments for all
your debts, excluding rent, arei
greater than 20 percent of your
monthly income or budget, you
should avbid taking on more debt
and work to pay down your existing;
After a few months, small steps in!
decreasing your expenses can make
a big difference.
Pay on time: By paying on time,
you can avoid incurring late fees!
and other penalties that credit gran-
tors add to your debt.
Establishing a payment plan that
works for you will help you avoid
these fees.
If you agree to pay a certain
amount, don't miss payments or pay

Ghost Run Car Rally

Planned To Benefit

Opera House Roof Fund

A Ghost Run Car Rally is planned
1 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 29, with pro-
ceeds to benefit the Opera House
Roof Fund.
Participation in the Ghost Run
costs $10 per vehicle, regardless of
the number of occupants.
Entrants will be given a written

course of about 10 miles around the'
Prizes will be awarded for the
best navigation skills.
Opera House Director Jan Rickey
states that the event is a first for the
City and the hope is that it will be-
come an annual event.
Not to be confused with car rallys,
which involve a high degree of
time-speed-distance performance,
and grueling terrain, this one will be
a leisurely afternoon's drive, with a
decidedly hometown flavor.
The challenge is to follow route,
instructions to guide drivers for
about an hour, through mostly resi-
dential streets in and around the
City, noting numbered course mark-.
ers enroute, on a score sheet.
Score sheets will be compared at
the conclusion of the drive, while,
participants enjoy refreshments and,
entertainment in the Opera House
Garden, and prizes will be awarded
in several categories, to those team
who most accurately followed the-
instructions and correct route.

Rickey reports that Police Chief
David Frisby has been made aware
of the event, and the route, in order
for his department to be able to allay
the concerns of residents who might
see an unusual number of cars pass-
ing their houses, during the rally.
There are, of course, no time or
speed components, to this eveht, and
therefore no reasons or causeuse: ; for
any traffic violations, Rickey
It is recommended that there be at
least two persons per vehicle, to
ease the workload and to permit the

the opportunity to learn the political
process. During the week, each level
of government is conducted by dele-

gates who are elected to serve.

the law and court system, legislative
procedure and Florida political his-
Brinson was the authorized Police
Chief during her week. She was also
elected to the Education Committee.
She reports that the opportunity to
attend this program was a life expe-
rience, that could not be surpassed.
Counts won the County Judge po-
sition during his week. He says that
his first day at State was a "walking
experience." He says he never used
the "Heel-Toe Express" as much in
one day.
He was excited and privileged to
have been given the opportunity to
attend this once in a lifetime experi-
ence. He especially enjoyed the de-
bates that went on in the sessions.
His future plans include becoming
a valuable assess to the United
States Air Force.
Both representatives went on
briefly to describe their week at
State, and,'expressed their thanks to
the members of the Legion and

ence possible.
Legion President Fred Shofner
commented that the enthusiasm and
attitude of these two .exceptional
students says it all, in reference to
their week at State.
The delegates work hard and are
kept busy while attending State.
They are given full schedules upon
their arrival and are keep busy from
daylight till dark. They are there be-
cause they want to learn, and learn
