Not Serve County
Don't expect to see the WILD
Bookmobile making its rounds-
around the county, in the future.
Two factors account for the fact
that the Bookmobile will no longer
serve the County:
*Wilderness Coast Public Librar-
ies (WILD) is under severe financial
*County Commission contributed
no money toward the publicly
Several months ago, when com-
missioners were about to begin their
budget considerations, WILD Direc-
for Cheryl Turner approached them
to request funding for the program.
Turner explained that her organi-
zation was experiencing financial
difficulties, because of rising gaso-
line and insurance costs.
Without financial contributions
from each of the three counties
served by WILD, the Bookmobile
would no longer provide the service,
which it previously provided at no
Turner specifically requested that
the County contribute $25,000, the
same amount which was requested
from Wakulla and Franklin
Counties, the other two counties
served by WILD.
The combined $75,000 from the
three counties, added to the
$250,000 the organization receives
from the State, would allow WILD
to maintain its current level of serv-
ice, Turner said.
In fact, she added, a $25,000 con-
tribution would allow the Bookmo-
bile to increase its service from two
_days a week, to three days a week,
At that time, Commissioners
promised to consider her request
during the coming budgetary proc-
ess. But when budget time came,
commissioners found other priori-
ties to be more pressing.
The final result was: Franklin_
County contributed $25,000, Wa-
kulla contributed $10,000, and Jef-
ferson contributed nothing.
Consequently, the Bookmobile
will continue to circulate in Franklin
It will cut its schedule by half in
Wakulla County, and it will cease to
serve Jefferson County.
Statistics show that the Bookmo-
bile circulated a total of 5,671
books, videos, CDs, DVDs and
tapes, to 4,886 citizens last year, in
the three counties.
Most of those taking advantage of
the service are youths and others in
the outlying communities, who can-
not easily get to the main library.
The Wilderness Coast Public Li-
braries System was established in
October, 1992, as an administrative
office for the cooperative muti-
county library system for Wakulla.

water System Seeks
$5.1M For Extension
Senior Staff Writer
Following the successful comple-
tion of phase one of the Jefferson
Communities Water System Inc.,
the people behind the $5.7 million
project have decided to proceed
with phase two.
Last Thursday, representatives of
the Jefferson Communities Water
System Inc. met with representa-
tives of Rural Development -- an
arm of the US Department of Agri-
culture -- to pursue the procurement
of an additional $5.1 million to ex-
tend the water service.
Bob Cooper, systems manager for
the Jefferson Communities Water
System Inc., told the News that the
idea is to fill in some of the service
gaps left by the original water sys-
Per Cooper's description, the plan
is to extend the system from its pre-
sent terminal just south of I-10 to
Nash Road and along US Highway
19 south to Jordan Road.
' The extension will then proceed
along Hatchett Road, go under I-10,
and hit Thompson Valley Road on
the north side of the interstate.
The system would next circle Cur-
tis Mill Road, follow the Drifton-
Aucilla Highway to Turkey Scratch
Road, and ultimately connect with
the existing water main on Big Joe

"We'll continue on, go across Kin-
sey Road, and tie to the existing
main on US 90," Cooper said.
"We're also going to extend from
US 90 to Blue Lake Road and tie to
the existing main water line on Tho-
mas Road and Blue Lake Road."
In the Lamont area, the system will
extend from its present terminal on
CR-257 to Cooley Road, which it
would follow for about a mile.
In the Lloyd area, meanwhile, the
plan is to entend the system to
Lloyd Creek and Barrington roads.
The plan also calls for the system to
extend north to pick up Lloyd
Acres, Christmas Acres, the Piney
Woods community, and ultimately
end up at Rabon Road.
South of Lloyd, the plan is'to ex-

tend the system along SR-59 to
Whitehouse Road and proceed west
on Whitehouse Road for about two-
thirds of a mile.
All told, the extension is expected
to pick up about 400 houses, which
will put the system's customer base
well over 1,200 houses.
Cooper called Thursday's meeting
with the Rural Development "a first
step", in what is expected to be a
long and tedious process. That is, if
the first phase of the project, was.
It took proponents of the water
system four years to get the original
project funded and another four to
get it constructed.
It all started in 1996, when Cooper
and then Health Department inspec-
tor Dan MacDonald proposed con-
structing a public water system to
serve the county's outlying commu-
nities, At the time, the proposal ap-
peared no more than a pipe dream.
Cooper and MacDonald had no
funds, no organization;- no experi-
ence pursuing such projects, and lit-
tle real idea of how to go about
securing the millions necessary to
construct the system.
What the two had, however, was
initiative, determination, tenacity
and an abiding concern for the wel-
fare of the many rural residents in
the Wacissa and Waukeenah areas
that were forced to drink poor qual-
ity well water.
Soon, the two joined forces with
Bill Rogers, a Georgia engineer well
versed in the construction of public
water systems and the procurement
of state and federal grants for such

nearly two years to acquire the sig-
natures and deposits of 800-or-so

Monticello was buzzing with ac-
tivity all weekend, beginning with
the Home Town Get Down Fall
Festival Friday night, and continu-
ing with the second weekend of the
Big Bend Ghost Trackers haunted
Spokesperson Ericka Imbrunone
said the Home Town Get Down
was as equally successful as the
event last month, with approxi-
mately 25 vendors selling every-
thing from artwork made by local
artists, to homemade jewelry,
knickknacks and collectibles, and
more than 500 people on hand.
Many sold fall related foods such
as caramel apples and hot apple ci-
der, as small children in costume
excitedly ran from merchant to
merchant on their trick-or-treat
Children and adults were seen in
costumes ranging from ghosts,
ghouls, the grim reaper, witches
"We had a lot of very positive
comments from people and the Big
Bend Ghost Trackers even came
through on their haunted tours,"
In the 50/50 cash drawing, Mar-
garet Boatwright won $291.
. Winners of the costume contest
were, age 0-6, Chelsea S., (some
last names were not provided), who
won scariest costume for "She
Devil;" Elvis Witherspoon, most
unique for a deer and hunter, and
Ashlyn won the cutest costume as a
In the 7-13 age category, Made-
line won as a rock star.
Samantha Hamilton won the 13-
18 age category, as a dark fairy,
Becky as a Greek Goddess named
the best adult costume.
DJ Don Mercer kept events
moving and played many oldies
but goodies, while small children
danced in the streets. Matt Simp-
son played the acoustic guitar and
sang five country songs.
"There were many kids on the
street," said Imbrunone. "It was a
good safe atmosphere for them to
have a good time."
Event* coordinators thanked
Patchauk Farms, who donated the
hay bales for seats and decorations,
the City of Monticello, which hung
the banners and collected and

Heart Center For Children
BY MELANIE FRIDL ROSS
University of Florida
UF, surgeons and pediatric cardi-'
ologists have joined forces to estab-
lish the UF Children's Heart Center,
a move officials say will improve
care for both children and adults
born with complex cardiac condi-
The center will provide coordi-
nated care to patients with congeni-
tal heart disease at UF from diag-
nosis to treatments that incorporate
medical and surgical management
With more than $3 million in
funding from Shands at UF, the UF
College of Medicine and Children's
Medical Services, the center repre-
sents a major new investment in pe-
diatric cardiology and congenital
heart surgery programs and unites
the expertise of specialists in pediat-
ric cardiology, invasive electro-
physiology, cardiac imaging and in-
terventional procedures, heart trans-'
plantation, congenital heart surgery,
nursing and more.
Cardiac surgeon Mark Bleiweis,
M.D., former director of the Chil-
dren's Heart Institute at the Chil-
dren's Hospital of Orange County in
California, is heading the center.
- "Our center will be able to provide
care for the entire spectrum of con-
genital heart disease, from the
smallest premature newborn to the
adult with congenital heart disease,
which would include complete re-
pair of very complex heart problems
to heart transplantation if
necessary," Bleiweis said.
Approximately 225,000 babies are
born in Florida every year. Of those,
about 1 of every 150 newborns has
some form of congenital heart dis-
ease, including structural problems
of the heart and its vessels, and heart
"The approach to care provided
through this center will enable even
the most complex patient to be cared
for by UF physicians," said Barry
Byrrie, M.D., Ph.D., professor and
associate chairman of pediatrics and
a pediatric cardiologist whose re-
search focuses on developing ge-
netic therapies for cardiovascular
Terry Flotte, M.D., chairman of
pediatrics on the Gainesville
campus, said the center represents "a
modem model," and called Bleiweis
"a very gifted surgeon and some-
body who has a very positive ap-
proach to this integration of care be-
tweenthe different disciplines."
"We're extremely enthusiastic
about his ability to make this pro-
gram successful," Flotte said.
Bleiweis also is an associate pro-
fessor of surgery and pediatrics at
UF's College of Medicine. While in
California, he introduced new pro-
grams such as the comprehensive
treatment for hypoplastic left heart
syndrome completed complex car-
diac repairs in very small babies, in-
cluding a premature neonate weigh-
ing less than 3 pounds.
As more children with congenital
heart disease survive longer, pediat-
ric cardiologists are increasingly
overseeing their care well into adult-
hood. In fact, in the United States,
there are now more adults than chil-
dren living with congenital heart
disease. In addition, these physi-
cians also are caring for adults with
previously untreated congenital
heart diseases. These patients have
their own unique set of problems.
"We do have a large population of
adults with congenital heart
disease," Byrne said. '"For the most
part, those patients are cared for by
pediatric cardiologists. It's an
emerging specialty within pediatric
The center will seek to recruit ad-
ditional faculty and' personnel, in-
cluding a Shands Children's
Hospital pediatric cardiac anesthesi-
ologist, an additional cardiac sur-
geon, a congenital heart surgery
nurse practitioner and a research co-
ordinator. In addition, six
intermediate-care pediatric beds in
the pediatric intensive care unit on
the 10th floor of Shands at UF will
be upgraded to pediatric intensive
care unit beds. The intermediate
care beds will revert back to a
fourth-floor unit, where they were
previously located. Hospital offi-
cials also anticipate dedicating an
operating room and a cardiac perfu-
sion team to pediatric cardiac cases.

Tips TO Share Family Memories
Whether it's during the holidays, a
birthday celebration or a family re-
union, sharing memories with loved
ones is an enjoyable and healthy
way to remember times past.
It can often be very frustrating,
however, when someone in the fam-
ily has Alzheimer's disease.
An estimated 4.5 million Ameri-
cans have Alzheimer's disease, and
as baby boomers age, that number is
expected to triple by 2050.
It's important to remember, how-
ever, that Alzheimer's patients can
still appreciate memories even if
they don't respond in the same man-
ner as before their illness.
Learning ways in which to posi-
tively interact with an Alzheimer's
patients is crucial for reconnecting
with your loved one and sharing
memories for as long as possible.
"The toughest part for many fami-
lies facing Alzheimer's is looking
back," says Joanne Koenig Coste,
renowned Alzheimer's care pioneer
and author of "Learning to Speak

Look at photo albums and vid-
eos. Flipping through a photo album
or watching a video together allows
loved ones to share an enjoyable ex-
perience. "Old black-and-white-pho-

solute strangers evoke strong
memories for Alzheimer's patients,"
explained Koenig Coste.
"Make copies of photos and let
your loved one write or draw on
them, or show a wedding video be-
cause that's a joyous occasion that
may make them remember their
