Missing Child Triggers
Search Early Saturday
Senior Staff Writer
The reported disappearance of a
three-year-old city boy early Satur-
day morning triggered a search that
involved several law enforcement
agencies and that ultimately may put
into jeopardy the mother's custody
of the child.
Sgt. Roger Murphy, of the Monti-
cello Police Department (MPD), re-
ported Monday that the child was
found unharmed in another part of
town several hours after the initial
But not before officers from the
MPD, the Sheriffs Department, the
,;Florida Department of Corrections,
the Florida Highway Patrol, and the
Florida Department of Law Enforce-
ment got involved in the matter, he
As Murphy related it, the MPD re-
ceived a call at 3:48 a.m. Saturday
reporting that a 3-year-old boy was
missing from a residence on Water
The boy's mother told responding
officers that she had awakened
around 3 a.m. to find her front door
ajar and the child missing.
The MPD requested assistance
from the Sheriffs Department K-9
unit and police officers and
deputies, along with dogs, began an
immediate search of the neighbor-
At the same time, MPD investiga-
tors conducted a search of the miss-
ing boy's house and interviewed his
mother and others who had visited
the residence during the evening.
"The MPD investigators contacted
the Florida Department of Law En-
forcement (FDLE), which offers as-
sistance to local agencies in missing
children investigations," Murphy
said"' "Several FDLE investigators
arrived to assist. The Florida De-
partment of Corrections also sent
K-9 units to assist, and the Florida
Highway Patrol had a trooper on
scene and an aircraft in the area of-
fering assistance if needed.
While the officers conducted
neighborhood searches, investiga-
tors continued doing interviews and
putting together information packets
for a nationwide law enforcement
alert, along with media and general
information releases to assist in
looking for the missing child.
Then about 9 a.m., a woman
called the police department to re-
port that a small child had wandered
to the residence of her elderly
mother during the wee hours of the
morning and was still there.
"The residence where the child
was located was on Mays Street, the
opposite side of town from where
the child was reported missing,"
Murphy said. "The Mays Street resi-
dent said she had been awaken by a
knock at her door during the early
"The resident found a small child
at her front door. There was no one
with the child. The resident let the
child in. She made the child a place
to sleep. Later that morning, the
resident called her daughter and
asked what should she do about the
child. The daughter notified the

Property rights trumped all other
considerations Thursday night in
commissioners' .4-1 decision to
approve a 73-acre rezoning
After 3-1/2 hours of hearing
residents voice overwhelming
opposition to the proposed
Comprehensive Plan amendment,
the majority voted to approve the
measure, with a stipulation.
That stipulation was that
developers Steve Andris and Don
Joiner reduce the number of planned
houses from 50 to 25. Alan Saucier,
the developers' representative,
agreed to the request on behalf of
Commissioner Danny Monroe,
who cast the nay vote on the com-
mission, echoed the concerns of
,,'.1 when he said. the approval
would set a precedent.
"I've done a lot of thinking on this,
since I sat on the Planning
Commission since 1975," Monroe
said. "The Comprehensive Plan says
change should be for a need, not to
help somebody. There are others
* waiting to see what we do with this.
I've heard nobody call me and say
this is something we need to do, that
this is good for the county. This is in
my district, and all I've heard is
fdlks say they don't want it. I'm con-
cerned about the change. I think
we're setting a precedent."
It was a meeting reminiscent of
the heyday of the Texaco and
Colonial Pipeline Company
controversy in the 90s, when crowds
packed the courthouse in vocal
opposition to the then proposed fuel
terminal and petroleum pipeline and
attorneys for the people issued legal
At least 19 individuals spoke in
opposition to the rezoning, with sev-
eral more foregoing their allotted
three-minute speaking time so that
Attorney Thomas Davis -- repre-
senting three of the adjacent prop-
erty owners -- could expound on his
Others speaking against the rezon-
ing included Planning Commission
Chairman Bill Tellefsen (speaking
as a concerned citizen); Neil Fleck-
enstein, a Red Hills planner' with-
Tall Timbers Research Station; and
Susan Anderson, an adjacent prop-
erty owner, former Planning Com-
mission member, and current
planning analyst with the Depart-
ment of Community Affairs (DCA).
The speakers cited a variety of rea-
sons why the 73 acres -- currently
zoned agriculture-5 (one-house-per-
acre) -- should not be rezoned
residential-1, or one house per acre.
Those reasons included legal, aes-
thetical, environmental and eco-
A sampling of the speakers and
the concerns expressed:
Tom LaMotte: "I hate to see wells
and septic tanks in this area when
we have other areas that are already
designated for higher density. I don't
think we need to rush to judgment
on this particular site."
Marcie Hamilton: "I don't feel this
zoning change is compatible with
the area. Other areas in the county
are better suited fotr th." :
Tellefsen: "The Comp Plan is a
road map; it shouldn't be changed
until the pressure is there to change
it. In the future, as the need for den-
sity comes, you'll want to do it from
the middle out. That's what urban
sprawl laws are for."
Davis: "There's a very good
chance this rezoning is illegal. Cities
and counties must comply with the
state Comp Plan. It's not a discre-
tionary matter. This is a perfect ex-
ample of urban sprawl. It's not only
illegal, it's, illogical."
(He also alluded to legal and po-
litical consequences, should the
commission proceed with a yes
Fleckenstein:' "The concern is the
precedent it will establish. While
this is a small parcel, the larger per-
spective is that it will establish a

Anderson: "I work for the DCA

and I can tell you this amendment

Commissioners Hire New
Grants Director For County
ROY SCHLEICHER, the county's new grants
director, gets congratulations from Exten-
sion Office Director Larry Halsey, who over-
saw the restructuring of the Grants Office.

Senior Staff Writer
The county's new grants director
is Roy Schleicher, a longtime resi-
dent of central Florida who moved
into the Tallahassee area not long
"We have lived in central Florida
for the past 33 years and recently
moved here so that my wife could
accept a statewide position in alco-
hol and drug prevention programs,"
Schleicher wrote in his introductory
letter to commissioners. "She had
- deferred numerous times for my ad-
vancement and it was time for me to
step back and give her the opportu-
nity to enhance her career."
Commissioners selected Schlei-
cher over six other candidates, based
on what they said was his extensive
background in local government.
Schleicher's resume shows that he
has been a city manager, an elected
county official, and owner and op-
erator of his own consulting busi-
ness, among other things.
His most recent employment, per
his resume, was president and owner
of Flowing Well Associates Inc., an
organization that provides strategic
planning, marketing and public rela-
tions for local governments. .
Prior to 2000, his resume shows
that he was city manager for the
City of Deltona for slightly over a
year and also served six years on the
Volusia County Council, between
1984 and 1990.
Commissioner Jerry Sutphin alone
voted against Schleicher's hiring.
"His resume presents itself well,"
Sutphin said. "I've just got a gut
feeling that he won't stay in Jeffer-
"He's retired and building a house
in the county," Commissioner
Danny Monroe said. "I don't see
him going anywhere."
"I too rated him up there," Com-
missioner Junior Tuten said. "I
never downgrade a candidate be-
cause he may use this as a stepping
The grants director answers di-
rectly to the County Commission.,
His job will be to pursue and admin-
ister grants for all county operations.

county $3 in services.
Commissioners focused narrowly
oni economics and property rights.
:Commissioner Gene Hall alluded
to: the loss of agricultural activities
such as the pecan and watermelon
crops that once provided employ-
ment and economic benefits here.
His point appeared to be that devel-
opments would provide jobs and cir-
culate money in the community
Commissioner Junior Tuten de-
nied that the change would set a
precedent. Each proposal stood or
failed on its own merits, he said.
But more important, "any time we
limit property rights, we limit your
rights also," he said. "...I don't en-
courage development; I don't dis-
courage it. A lot of people want to
kdep their land for their children and
that's good. But those who can't, I
cannot restrict them."
Commissioner Jerry Sutphin men-
tioned being threatened by oppo-
nents of the rezoning. Meaning that
hq would pay the political conse-
qqences if he voted for the rezoning.
'I will not sell my soul for the
ndxt four years just to be reelected,"
Siitphin said. "If you don't like me,
you can vote me out in the next
three years. But right now, I'm do-
ing what is best for Jefferson
SBesides, the commission's deci-
sibn was only one small part in a
long and involved process that in-
clided state and federal permitting
requirements, he added.
?"We're just a small spoke in a big
wheel," Sutphin said.
-Commissioner Skeet Joyner like-
wise said he had been threatened by
opponents of the rezoning. But "po-
litical repercussions mean nothing to
me," he said.
:"I have heard it said, do what the
people 'want," Joyner continued. "I
have talked to people on the street,
on the sidewalk and in the stores. I
have listened to my constituents.
< But there are 14,000 people in this
county, not just 100."
The real issue, however, was
property rights, he let it be known.
Joyner said he presently owned a
piece of land that developers were
constantly approaching him about.
He had no plan to sell the parcel,
which represented "an insurance
policy", he said.
But should his personal circum-
stance change and necessity dictate
that he develop the property one
day, "I want to have that right," Joy-
It was at this point Tuten offered a
compromise, asking if the develop-
ers were willing to limit the devel-
opment to 25 houses. The limitation
essentially changes the request from
residential-1 to agriculture-3, or one
house per three acres.
It was not clear at the conclusion
of the meeting if the compromise
was acceptable to the opponents of
the rezoning, especially those adja-
cent property owners who had
threatened legal action.

Testing Is Educational Tool
BY MICHAEL H. KEAN.
As testing becomes a major part of
states and federal school improve-
ment efforts, parents are seeking as
greater understanding of the role. of
Parents also want to know how
they can best help their children..
Much of what parents need to know
about testing can be found by asking
10 key questions.
Question: Why should my child
take this test? .
Answer: Tests provide objective
and consistent methods to measure
what students have learned and what
they need to learn. Equally impor-
tant, tests provide teachers ith
valuable information* about ho'\
they can target instruction to. best
Question: What do tests measure?
Answer: Tests can be designed tc
measure any number of things: read-
ing skills, the ability to solve prob-
lems, mathematical concepts, spell-
ing and so on. Many states have es-
tablished testing programs that are
closely aligned with state education
standards specifying what students
should know and be able to do at
-each grade level enabling parents
to monitor a child's progress.
Question: Can my child be ad-
vanced a grade or held back -
solely on her performance on a test?
Answer: Altlough some states are
linking test results to "uigh stakes"
decisions such as promotion and
graduation, test scores typically are
not the sole determining factor. The
vast majority of states use multiple
measures including other types of
tests, course grades, attendance re-
cords and individual evaluations
made by teachers and specialists in
making high stakes decisions.
Question: What about criticisms
concerning "teaching to the test"?
Answer: Since tests are designed
to determine what children know,
teachers are expected to teach the
general curriculum content that will
be. measured. Providing instruction
linked to curriculum standards is ap-
propriate and desirable. However,'
teaching the same questions that ac-
tually appear on the test prior to the"
test administration invalidates the
test and is considered unethical,
Question: How do we know that
the test is accurate?
Answer: The major standardized
tests undergo extensive and rigorous
research and development phases to
ensure that they are valid, fair and
Question: Who will help me un-
derstand and interpret .my child's
Answer: Test scores are used in a,
variety of ways. Tl,ey, pro't ide feed-
back to teachers and parents about a'
child's performance so that instruc-
tion can be targeted to specific areas
where help is needed. School dis-
tricts and states may also use test re-
sults to help evaluate instructional
programs and. individual schools to
ensure that they are effective.
Question: Are today's tests differ-
ent .from those used in the 1960s and
Answer: Today's test are more en-
gaging and interesting through their
use of color, stories and
illustrations: That's not all. The tests
themselves have changed. While the
"fill in the circle" type test is still
commonly used, new types of tests
include short essays, experiments
and even team projects.
Question: Will my child learn any-
thing from the test?
Answer: Most likely, yes. Over
the past 10 years, many standardized
tests have been redesigned to make
test items more instructional in na-
ture. Children will also learntime
management and discipline, as most
tests provide a finite amount of time
'to answer the questions, preparing
the student for real life situations
with time-senritive tasks and prob-
Question: How can I help my
child prepare for the test?
Answer: First and foremost, sup-
port all aspects of your children's
education. Monitor their progress,
and make sure they are getting the
help they need to succeed. Get to
know their teachers.
Have an ongoing dialogue with
your children, asking questions
about the subject matter of their
tests, and help them establish a

Pollution Hurts National Parks
BY THOMAS C. KIERNAN
* Recently, my two sons and I hiked
Old Rag in Shenandoah and camped
on the ridge of the mountain an
event that has become an annual rit-
ual for us.
Every year, millions of Americans
venture into national parks across
the country, seeking relaxation and
inspiration in these treasured places,
- my family among them.
We look forward to enjoying the
fresh, clean air of the national parks.
Unfortunately, more and more it
seems as though we'd get cleaner air
if we stayed home.
Dozens of outdated power plants
that have operated for decades with-
out modem emissions controls spew
-millions of tons of pollution into the
air surrounding our parks each year.
Regrettably, this pollution can re-
duce visibility in parks like Shenan-
doah to only a few miles.
Once, visitors to Shenandoah
could see the Washington Monu-
ment approximately 70 miles
distant. Today, average summer
views extend only 25 miles, ob-
scured by a grayish haze.
Besides marring scenic views and
harming plants and wildlife, air pol-
lution also. threatens the health of
'park visitors and nearby communi-
On some days, air quality is so
dirty that visitors to Shenandoah and
other parks must check to see
whether it's safe for them to hike or
bike in the park.
The story is repeated from coast to
coast. Parks such as Great Smoky
Mountains in Tennessee and North
Carolina, Sequoia and Joshua Tree
.in California, the Grand Canyon in
Arizona, Rocky Mountain in Colo-
rado and Acadia in Maine are all af-
fected by air pollution.
For too many Americans, a visit to
a national park during some months
can include chest pain, shortness of
breath, coughing or even an asthma
attack all triggered by air
Filthy air is not what Congress had
in mind when it began setting aside
America's treasured places.
In 1916, Congress established the
National Park Service to "...con-
serve the scenery and the natural
and historic objects and the wildlife
therein...as will leave them unim-
paiied for the enjoyment of future
Congress made its intentions even
more explicit in the Clean Air Act
Amendments of 1977 where it de-
clared "...as a national goal the pre-

She lived in fear of him all the

At Cross Country Meet
ACA To Run in Cross
Country District Meet
The Lady Warriors Cross Coun-
1try team had no competition during
'the JCHS Invitational, and thus
took first, second and third places.
There were four schools slated
for the meet, ACA, JCHS, which
has no girl's team, Madison, which
called and canceled at the last min-
ute, and North Florida Christian
which never called to cancel and
never showed up.
Coach Dan Nennstiel said- that
,the day was hot and the course was
long, so the girls' times were not
'reflected in the finish, but were
over their normal times by at least
two minutes each.
"There was no competition and
no one here to cheer for them," said
Olivia Sorensen came in first
with 24:14, Tristan Sorensen came
in second with 24:26 and Sarah
Sorensen came in third with 25:33.
Nicole Mathis finished fourth
with 25:33; Courtney Connell fin-
ished fifth, with 26:38; Alex
Searcy, 26)46; Tori Self, 27:45;

Coach Dan Nennstiel said that
the girl's are going to be at a disad-
vantage during the meet because
three of his seven starters, would
not be able to be there, and three
JV's will take their places on the
team as substitutes.
Scheduled to compete in the
championship, are: Olivia, Tristan
and Sarah Sorensen, Courtney
Connell, Tori Self, Kelli Dollar and
Each team must have a minimum
of seven runners.
"It's time to get down to the nitty-
gritty," said Nennstiel. "In the
post-season meets, if you don't fin-
ish the race in the top five or six
(five if there are under 15 teams,
and six if there are more thanl5),
the season is over, so it is definitely
time for the rubber to hit the road.
"Last year, we were in a different
district and won second place. This
year there are two schools which
are going to be there, that'll be our
real competition,"said Nennstiel.
"When we ran against those two
schools before, they beat us."
He added that their goal is to fin-
ish in the top five to be on the safe
side. "It'll be a real challenge, and-
the JV's will have to step up, but I
think they'll do OK and run
