Case Of Missing


Child Ends With


Arrest Of Mom


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

* The mother of a three-year-old
child whose alleged disappearance
several weeks ago almost triggered
an Amber Alert has been charged
with child neglect.
* The Monticello Police Depart-
ment (MPD) filed the charge against
23-year-old Amber Brungardt, on
Nov. 1. She was arrested Wednes-
day, upon her return to town from
Clearwater, FL.
The charge stems from an incident
that occurred in October.
'According to documents filed in
the Clerk of Courts office, Brun-
gardt contacted the MPD at 3:48
a.m. Saturday, Oct. 22, and reported
that her three-year-old son was
missing.
Brungardt told investigators that
she had awakened at 3 a.m. to find
her front door open and the child
missing. She further told investiga-
tors that her son "was capable of un-
locking the front door and had un-
locked the door and exited the resi-
dence in the past," according to the
police report.'
; The child's disappearance trig-
gered a multi-agency search that in-
cluded elements of the MPD, the
Sheriffs Department, the Florida
Highway Patrol and the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforcement.
The estimated cost of the search,
in terms of overtime to the MPD
alone, was $618, according to Police
iChief David Frisby.


Ultimately, officers found the
child unharmed in another part of
town several hours after the
-mother's call. Actually, a resident
called the police department to re-
port that her mother, who lives in
the Roostertown area, had found the
child outside her door in the wee
hours of the morning.
It was never satisfactorily ex-
plained to investigators how the
three-year-old had managed to
travel the mile-or-so distance from
his home on Water Street to the resi-
dence across town where he was
found, or how he had managed to
cross busy US Highway 19, among
other things.
Subsequent questioning of Brun-
gardt by investigators produced in-
formation that the 23-year old
mother had left her sleeping child
unattended at home about 2 a.m.
while she responded to a friend's
call for a ride home from a well-
known bar in the southeast part of
town.
Interviewed by investigators, the
cited friend -- who lives a block
from the bar -- denied that she had
ever called Brungardt or requested a
ride home, according to the police
report.
Police suspect that the child was
somehow transported across town.
But thus far, they have been unable
to substantiate their suspicion.
The incident led the Department
of Child and Family Service to re-
move the child from Brungardt's
care.

Commissioners hope to have a
new Fire Rescue director hired as
early as next week.
Commissioners interviewed two of
six applicants for the job Tuesday,
having interviewed the other four
candidates earlier.
At the same time, commissioners
.continue looking into the possible
.privatization of the ambulance serv-
ice.


Fire Rescue has been without a di-
rector for several months now.
Longtime Fire Chief Larry Bates
resigned Sept. 1, citing personal and
other reasons.
Commissioners hired a new fire
chief director soon after. But a week
or so later, the newly hired chief,
Jeff Capps, submitted his resigna-
tion, stating that he had been offered
a better job in Leon County.
Lucille Hunter has been acting
chief in the interim.

Genealogy Society Plans

TO Move TO Aew Library


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

Persons researching their family.
roots and other ancestral matters
will soon be able to do so in a more
amiable and spacious atmosphere.
That's because the Keystone Ge-
nealogy Society (KGS) will soon be
moving its operation to the public li-
brary on Water Street.
The County Commission ap-
proved the move last week, follow-
ing assurance from KGS representa-
tive Dee Counts that housing her or-
ganization's operation in the public
library will cost the county nothing.
Counts said volunteers will con-
tinue to staff the operation during its
open hours, the organization will
have its own phone and copy ma-
chine, and prison labor will accom-
plish the move from one location to
the other.
In addition; her organization will
pay the insurance premiums for pro-
tection of the documents.
Counts explained that the reason
for the move was that the organiza-
tion's present facility -- the 150-
year-old gray building on East
Washington Street -- no longer pro-
vided adequate protection for the or-
ganization's priceless archives.


"These are very delicate docu-
ments," Counts said, adding that it
was "common practice in Florida
and the rest of the nation for geneal-
ogy to be in the library."
"It's a win, win situation," Counts
said.



Organization's
Records Span
Period Of More
Than 35 Years


She said her organization's ar-
chives included a wealth of infor-
mation, including a vast collection
of books, birth certificates, probate
files and "all kinds of invaluable re-
cords accumulated over the last 35
years."
What's more, the information was
available to the public for free, she
said.
The present operating hours for the
Keystone Genealogy Society library
are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday.
Counts said the hope is to increase
the operating hours to two days a
week once the move to the public li-
brary is accomplished.
Commissioners approved a ten-
year agreement between the county
and the KGS, with the contract auto-
matically renewing every year. The
genealogy records will be housed in
the northwest comer of the public li-
brary.

Residents living on dirt roads
damaged by Hurricane Dennis
should soon be seeing improve-
ments on their roads.
Road Department Superintendent
David Harvey reported to commis-
sioners last week. that FEMA (Fed-
eral Emergency Management
Administration) had awarded the
county $110,000 for the repair of
roads damaged by Hurricane
Dennis.
The $110,000, at least, was what
left of the FEMA money after the
consultant engineer had removed his
fees for doing the damage-and-
repair assessment of the various
roads, Harvey said.
The problem, he added, was that
the $110,000 was $58,000 short of
th epricequoted by the low bidder.
The only other bid, he said, was for
more than $400,000.
Commissioners briefly considered
cutting the scope of the work, to
bring it into conformance with the
available funding. But Harvey
pointed out that FEMA had awarded
the money based on the county re-
pairing all 14 roads listed on the
funding request.
How the county accomplished the
goal was none of FEMA's concern,
Harvey said.
"FEMA doesn't care who does the
work," Harvey said, "so long as all
14 projects get done."
Commissioners instructed Harvey
to get with the contractor and nego-
tiate allowing the Road Department
to do the balance of the work not


covered by Curt's Construction
Company -- about $58,000 worth of
repairs.
Harvey informed commissioners
that a possibility existed that FEMA
would reimburse the county after
the fact for any additional money
the county might expend on the pro-
ject.
In other road-related actions, the
commission canceled ditch repairs
slated for Lovett Road, because of
insufficient funding; and approved
the resurfacing of the entire length
of CR-142.
The US Department of Agricul-
ture, Natural Resources Conserva-
tion Service, awarded the county
$227,747 for the paving of the
ditches on Lovett and Water Mill
roads.
The low bid, however, was
$278,762, or $51,015 over the budg-
eted amount. Commissioners deter-
mined that Water Mill Road
represented a higher priority than
Lovett'Road.
In the matter of CR-142, or the
Lake Road as it's commonly known,
commissioners decided- to allow
Anderson-Columbia Construction
Company to reclaim the existing as-
phalt and reuse it in order to extend
the resurfacing the entire 10 miles of
the road.
Absent the reclaiming and reusing
of the asphalt, the $1.2 million
awarded by the state reportedly
would allow for only half the road
to be resurfaced.
Commissioners expressed satisfac-
tion with Anderson-Columbia Con-
struction Company's representation
that asphalt recycling was a time-
proven and effective method.


ROAD DEPARTMENT and contractors will be busy over the
coming months, repairing the numerous roads damaged by
Hurricane Dennis. County officials learned last week that
FEMA had awarded the county $110,000 for the repairs.

FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer
The Second Annual "Midnight-
Sun" Charity Horse Show and Fes-
tival hosted at the Dixie Plantation
sponsored by the Quitman/Brooks
County Museum & Cultural Center
last week drew a much larger
crowd than last year.
More than 2,000 people came
through the entire event last year,
and the phones were ringing non
stop weeks before the event, this
year.
Spokesperson Betty Horton said
the entire week went very well.
"There were many of the top
Tennessee trainers there who all
said they were coming back again
next year and it was a great show,"
said Horton. "All week, we had
much larger crowds than we did
last year, but the final numbers
haven't been tallied yet."
Last year, there were 150 entries
in the horse show, versus 250 this
year.
More than 500 toured the house,
in 2004. This year, there were more
than 1,000.

alone, there were between 1,500
and 2,000 people who come
through," said Horton.
She added that during every
event at the house each night, there
were more than 250 people present.
The mansion was well decorated
by area designers. Extravagant
pieces and antiques added charm to
each room, which gave the essence
of total elegance.
Works of artists and craftsmen
were also on display throughout the
house.
Events included tours of the
house, a fashion show and lunch-
eon, a country music band,
dancing, a barbecue meal,
cocktails, banquet, dance and live
auction, horse show, and arena

Arena events included 25
classes.
More than $28,000 in prize

Who Took Up Arms__ Oinion & Comment


Veterans Day, begun as a celebra-
tion of the end of World War I,
since has become a time set aside to
honor all American veterans.
It was originally called Armistice
Day, and was celebrated for the first
time on November 11, 1919, exactly
:one year to the day after the shoot-
ing stopped in Europe. To mark the
moment, churches held special serv-
ices and soldiers paraded.
People across the country ob-
served two minutes of silence in re-
membrance of soldiers who had lost
their lives. Similar ceremonies were
held in England, and France.
A vital element of the observance
was added in 1921, when the body
of an unknown American soldier
was moved from France to be buried
at Arlington National Cemetery in
Virginia. The observance of that
special -day included the President
laying a wreath at the Tomb of the
Unknown Soldier, an act repeated
each Veterans Day since.
The tomb, overlooking the Poto-
mac River, honored all Americans
who died fighting in World War I. It
is guarded 24 hours a day by men
and women of the 3rd. U.S. Infantry
"Old Guard," the Army's honor
guard.
Armistice Day was officially
named by Congress .in 1926. It be-
came a national holiday 12 years_
later. But the "armistice" didn't live


up to the hope that -there- would
never be another world war.
To honor veterans of every con-
flict, President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower signed a bill in 1954 to
change the name from Armistice
Day to Veterans Day.
In 1968, a law was enacted allow-
ing Veterans Day to be celebrated,
the fourth Monday in October. In re-
sponse to strong feelings about the
original date, Congress in 1978
changed Veterans Day back to the
original date of November 11.
Two unknown soldiers were bur-
ied at Arlington National Cemetery
in 1958. One was killed in World
War II and one died in the Korean
War. In 1984, remains from the
Vietnam War were brought to join
the other Unknowns. But in 1998
the remains were identified through
DNA tests and moved from the
Tomb of the Unknowns.
In adaion to 'ceremoies at the
Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington
Natifn'al Cemetery, it' has long been
a Veterans Day tradition for obser-
vances to be held in each state with
parades, patriotic ceremonies, and
the display of flags.
From that awesome day at the end
of World War I, on the 11th hour of
-the 11th day of the 11th month,
came a special day, of observance
for all men and women, living and
.dead, who took up arms in defense
of America.

I inherited and I enjoy a political-
liberty that I did nothing to earn. It
is a gift of God and other human
beings who sacrificed blood and
even their lives to attain it.
My political liberty is my national
birthright. It is my status before the
State. I am a citizen of this country
with all the rights and privileges
thereto, simply because I was born
here.
I received and I enjoy a soul
liberty that I did nothing to earn.
Indeed I can do nothing to earn it. It
is a gift of God and the One who
sacrificed his blood and his life for_
me.
My soul liberty is now my spiri-
tual birthright. It is my status before
God. I am a citizen of heaven with
all the rights and privileges thereto,
simply because I was spiritually re-
born.
My political liberty must be pro-

My political liberty speaks to self-
-determination. My soul liberty is
about divine direction.
Political liberty affords me the
pursuit of happiness. Soul liberty af-
fords me the pursuit of righteous-
ness. Political liberty seeks to
protect me from conquerors, crime
and corruption.
Soul liberty offers me protection

political liberty is a matter of
history, while my soul liberty is a
matter of eternity.
Liberty in all its forms is, aside
from life itself, one of our most pre-
-cious endowments, whether we
think of it as a gift, a right, or a pos-
session. Liberty enables us to expe-
rience life at its fullest, to express
our humanity, to reach for the stars.

said, "Give me liberty, or give me

BY SCOTT KIRKWOOD

Talk about goal-oriented. When
Alan Hogenauer of Cerritos, Calif.,
visited Virgin Islands Coral Reef
National Monument last fall, it was
the final step in a journey begun al-
most 50 years earlier at the Statue of
Liberty in New York. The mission?
To visit every National Park system
unit in the country.
Hop on the Internet and you'll find
dozens of park lovers working fe-
verishly to hunt down stamps from
every park, but Hogenauer had a
slight advantage over some:
He spent a few years working for
Trans World Airlines and he's now
an associate professor and director
of the center for travel and tourism
at Loyola Marymount University, in
Los Angeles this stuff is his job.
But he still had to pay his own way
more often than not and he logged a
lot more miles on the road than in
the sky.


Even after all those trips, Ho-
genauer says he doesn't have a par-
ticular favorite park or even a favor-
ite theme. "That's what made this
such a fascinating project letting
'other people select what they find
interesting and then having a good
team interpret it," says Hogenauer.
"Would I have personally sought
out a place like Nicodemus, the
black village in central Kansas? No,
I wouldn't have ever known it was
there, but it's an absolutely fascinat-
ing place. I've learned a lot about
-black history and women's history
and I'm sure Latino history will be-
come more prevalent in the parks as
the population of our country
'changes."
Hogenauer acknowledges that the
-interpretative aspect of the parks is
his favorite part of every visit: "If
there's a visitor's center I want to
;ook at it, if there's a film I want to
;watch it, if there's a placard I want
to read it."
Clearly this is a man who is a bit


oosessive. His personal web site
tracks each of his 366 travel-related
goals, from visiting all 131 North
American telephone area codes des-
ignated by AT&T, to visiting some
point worldwide whose name begins
with each of the 26 letters of the al-
phabet and consuming a McDon-
ald's menu item in every country in
which it operates.
Hogenauer even made a pilgrim-
age to the offices of R. R.
Donnelley, the Lancaster, Penn.,
company that prints maps and pam-
phlets for each park, just to let them
know he appreciated their efforts.
Because he's had the chance to see
the parks over the course of the last
few decades, Hogenauer has a
unique perspective on the evolution
of the parks in that time and his ob-
servations mirror the goals of
NPCA's advocacy work, including
the changes in the visitor
experience.
"There's more of a detachment
now," Hogenauer says. "You go in


to the visitor's center, you watch a
movie, you push a button, -you don't
ever talk to anybody you can liter-
ally go to Yosemite and not see a
ranger during your entire visit."
Even so, Hogenauer still believes
the incredible value of the parks isn't
being experienced and appreciated
by nearly enough people.
"Here's this incredible institution,
and the Park Service does so little to
publicize it directly, beyond the
Internet, which is such a passive ve-
hicle no one's going to search for
.Aniakchak Crater, per se. They're
going to have to find it on their
own," he says. Yet, at the same time,
commercial interests with much
smaller budgets are focusing on
branding and messaging; many tour-
ist traps in the shadow of the parks
do a better job of publicizing lesser
attractions with fliers in hotels and
rest stops.
"When I was teaching back; East, I.
did some research on folks who

Ultrathin Film Holds Promise


BY BARRY RAY


Imagine a special coating that can-
be applied to any of a number of
surfaces. With 'its application, car-
pets, furniture and clothing become
super-resistant to stains; automobile
bodies are impermeable to water and
rust; stents put in place during heart
surgery no longer are susceptible to
tissue growth that can restrict blood
flow; and cell cultures are more eas-
ily produced in the laboratory.
These are just a few of the possi-


abilities envisioned by a Florida State
University researcher who is devel-
oping processes for applying such
-coatings.
Joseph B. Schlenoff, a professor in
FSU's department of chemistry and
biochemistry and associate director
of its Center for Materials Research
,and Technology (MARTECH), has
worked for more than eight years to
develop ultrathin films that repel
water and other corrosive
substances.
"When you wax your car, water
-tends to bead up on the surface in


small droplets," Schlenoff said. "But
when one of these films is applied,
water virtually flies off. That's be-
cause the films are "superhydropho-
bic,' and water droplets ride over
them."
The key to creating such films lies
in a layering process that Schlenoff
has patented.
"Essentially, we place layers of
positively and negatively charged
electrolytes atop one another," he
said. "Their electrical charges cancel
each other out, creating a neutrally
charged, ultrathin film. The protec-


tive seal that is created by such films
is much more effective than paints
or resins alone at repelling corrosive
substances, such as salt or water."
Naresh Dalal, chairman of FSU's
department of chemistry and bio-
chemistry, said that other research-
ers have created methods for
producing multilayer films, but that
Schlenoff's process is particularly
simple and relatively inexpensive
to reproduce. "The potential appli-
cation for this teclmology are stag-
gering," he said.

Writer Chides Commissioners


AS Childish, Too Thin Skinned


'Dear Editor:
' The issue to convert Ag-5 zoned
land to R-1 zoning so developers
can build one house an acre, instead
of one per five acres, is an important
'issue, and too important not to be
taken more seriously by the County
-Commission.
* On Oct. 20, 2005, our County
,Commission voted on the first appli-
cation to convert Ag-5 to R-1.
, It was approved 4-1, after further
discussions by the commissioners
'with the developer's representatives,
Sand modifications were made and


. accepted.
The Commissioners don't believe
they have set a precedent for future
applications but it appears the stage
has been set.
The next application is scheduled
for vote in December.
Before they voted, most Commis-
sioners preached to, and scolded the
audience. The public had maligned,
threatened and libeled them over
this issue.
They whined like nursery school
boys, trying to take the heat off
themselves by casting those who


opposed the changes, and character-
izing them as threatening, malicious
and menacing.
The obvious conclusion: their
skins are too thin to be in the politi-
cal arena, and they need to retire,
They are out of touch.
The Planning Commission chair-
man, who is very knowledgeable on
this issue, said: "the Comp Plan is a
road map; it shouldn't be changed
until the pressure is there to change-
it."
He also said he wasn't sure we
could justify such change to the

fenr, and only about 20 percent of
them knew they'd been to a national
park unit when they left," says Ho-
genauer.
"You could say, 'Does it really
matter?' but it does, because that's
where your public support comes
from, that's where your brand iden-
tity comes from if you've gone to
see the Statue of Liberty and you
don't even know whom .to give
credit to, you end up crediting the
French for donating it rather than
the Park Service for maintaining it,
and that's a real shame."

Ultrathin
(Continued From Page 4),
Consider these possibilities:
Car bodies, building materials,
boat hulls or other items that are
likely to degrade when exposed to
the elements could bd treated with
ultrathin films"during the manufac-
turing process to make them resis-
tant to rust, corrosion or water dam-
age.
Stains on clothing, carpeting and
other fabrics could be a thing of the
past if films are applied.
Stents used for implantation in-
side coronary arteries during surgi-
cal procedures could be coated with
an ultrathin film that prevents cells
and proteins from adhering, thus
avoiding a narrowing of the arteries
and restriction of blood flow.
Contact lenses could be treated
to prevent proteins and calcium de-
posits from binding to them during
wear.
High-speed electronics could be
coated with ultrathin films to make
them resistant to electrostatic fields
that interfere with their functions.
Glass slides can be stamped with
films that encourage or retard cellu-
lar adhesion in certain areas, allow-
ing for greater efficiency in produc-
ing certain cell cultures used in bio-
medical research.
Already, one of Schlenoff's pat-
ents has entered the marketplace.
Recently, Schlenoff and another
FSU researcher, Stephen Dubas, de-
signed a small robot that can dip
glass slides into beakers to coat the
-slides with an ultrathin film. Copies
of the robot are selling all over the
world for than $10,000 a piece.
All told, Schlenoff holds six is-
sued U.S. Patents.

Even though the public may feel
sold out and their concerns dis-

The letters and comments at pub-

record. It will all come into playat a
higher level.
Unfortunately, the mistrust of
elected officials has been bestowed

How sad that the Commissioners

But we all must remember that
there is more than one issue. The
Board and other elected officials

When disagreement turns into
negative attacks against honest, con-

the result is less than productive.
What we are left with is elected
officials that are not representative
of our proud County.

So why did we vote to change it,
Commissioners Tuten, Hall, Joyner
and Sutphin? Where is the pressure?
You must have misread the map
and made a wrong turn. Land that
has been agricultural for more than a
century and a half will now be sur-

The adjacent landowners are

Some of them still farm and hunt on

It's all going to change because

IN LOVING MEMORY
Bertha Thompson Glenn
Nov. 23, 1942-Nov. 13, 2000
It has been five years since you've
been gone. Yet it only seems like
yesterday.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but
you did not go alone. A part of us
went with you, the day God called
you home.
If tears could build a stairway and
memories a lane, we'd walk right up
to heaven, and bring you back
again
We miss your beautiful smile so'
much.
Your sisters,
Sadie and Mazarine
Brothers, Herbert,
Hopkins, Willie,
Your nieces,
and nephews,

Healthy Weight Loss available only at
Jackson's Drug, Hoodiacol is'
designed to curb the appetite, burn
fat and increase energy levels
resulting in considerable weight loss
over time. Hoodiacol consist of 3 key
ingredients incorporated into rice
bran oil with natural flavorings to
give it a palpable taste. In addition to
weight loss, you may see benefits for
the hair, skin and nails from the
Omega 3 and Omega 6 found in rice
bran oil. Hoodia gordonii is a cactus
found in the Kalahari Desert of South
Africa. Unsurpassed as an appetite
suppressant, it not only limits appetite
but increases the sense of satiety. This'
tends to limit total caloric intake by
30-40% without experiencing hunger.
Significant weight loss should result
from such a drop in caloric intake.

anrd skill test is required on the vehi-
cle to be driven.

1986. This entails 40 hours, 20 of
which are classroom instruction; 8
hours behind the wheel instruction;
and an additional 12 hours at the
district's option. Training must be
documented.
*At least 8 hours of inservice
training is required annual for each
driver.
*Criminal background checks in-
clude fingerprinting.
