Slightly At JCKC
Senior Staff Writer
Although business at the Jefferson
County Kennel Club (JCKC) has
fallen off a little since the recent
cancellation of the poker tourna-
Sments, things are not that bad, ac-
:cording to JCKC owner Steve An-
"I'd say business has fallen 10 to
15 percent," Andris said Monday of
the effect of the changes in state
gaming rules that helped close down
the popular tournaments at pari-
mutuel facilities. "We had five to six
tournaments a week."
Andris said cancellation of the
tournaments will :occasion the re-
duction of hours for some employ-
ees, but it will not cause layoffs or
anything so dramatic.
Eventually, he expects that the
tournaments will be reinstated, once
new rules are written. That,
however, will probably take some
tiffe, according to Andris. Mean-
while, JCKC will continue to offer
live poker, which is still permitted.
According to an Associated Press
_story Sunday, a federal appeals
court on Friday denied the request
of several racetracks that sought to
stop changes in the state gaming
rules that aimed to close down poker
The injunction sought by Daytona
Beach Kennel Club and five other
greyhound tracks essentially would
have allowed the tournaments to
continue, according to the report.
But a federal court in Tallahassee on
Friday denied the request.
The court is expected to make a fi'-
nal ruling on the issue in early De-
-cember. That decision will deter-
mine if the state had authority to
make changes to the tournament
The state repealed all the rules in-
volving poker tournaments earlier
this month, after two courts -held
that, under current Florida law, the
state could not place a $45 limit on
_.entry fees, according to the. AP

Lt. Mark Matthews, a longtime
Fire Rescue employee, is the depart-
ment's new director.
The County Commission ap-
proved the action unanimously last
week. Matthews was one of six indi-
viduals to apply for the position.
The record shows that Matthews
started with the county's Fire Rescue
Department in 1989. Before that he
served four years with the Monti-
cello Fire Department. The city dis-
banded its paid fire department in
Previous to coming here, Mat-
thews worked in various printing
jobs in Tallahassee and Inverness,
FL, his hometown.
Matthews earned a firefighting
certificate from Lively Vocational
Technical School in 1988.
He earned a fire safety inspector
certificate from the same school in
1991 and an Emergency Medical
Technician (EMT) certificate from
North Florida Community College
Friends and coworkers describe
Matthews as fair, professional, con-
scientious and accessible, qualities
they say assure he will make a good
Fire Rescue director. He also has
experience in scheduling, budgeting
and training, they say.
In choosing Matthews, commis-
sioners made a conscious decision
to hire from within. The board's pre-
vious hire for Fire Rescue chief
lasted .a little over a Week, before
submitting his resignation to pursue
another job in Tallahassee.
The board, meanwhile, continues
considering whether to privatize the
ambulance service part of the opera-
tion. The board recently 'held a
workshop with Taylor County per-
sonnel to explore the possibility.
Taylor County's ambulance service
has long been privatized.

Between 20 and 30 people gath-
ered at the Courtyard Cafe early Fri-
day morning to enjoy breakfast and
celebrate Farm City Week.
The event, held in conjunction
with similar festivities across the
country during Nov. 18-24, cele-
brates the partnership between agri-
cultural and urban communities.
That partnership, according to
members of the agriculture commu-
nity, makes possible the production
of an ample supply of food and
clothing that feeds and clothes the
nation and the rest of the world.
Indeed, according to the resolu-
tion signed by State Representative
Will Kendrick at the breakfast, "ag-
riculture employs more than 24 mil-
lion workers, including farmers and
ranchers, shippers, processors, mar-
keters, retailers truck drivers, in-
spectors and others who annually
contribute more than $1.3 trillion to
the gross domestic product."

President Stephen Monroe spoke to
the productivity of American farm-
ers and ranchers, which make it pos-
sible for Americans, to enjoy cheap
He pointed out that it costs
Americans 10 to 11 percent of their
disposable income to buy food, ver-
sus 17 to 18 percent in Europe and
up to 75 percent in some countries.
"It's all due to the ingenuity and
efficiency of the American farmer,"
K6ndrick was the guest speaker.
He spoke briefly of the many chal-
lenges facing the nation, the state
and the region and asked his audi-
ence to focus on the good things.
"Let's be thankful for what we
have," Kendrick said. "Let's remem-

Senior Staff Writer
County commissioners on Thurs-
day selected the health insurance
plan that in their estimation offered
the best possible benefits to employ-
ees at the least possible cost to the
The plan -- one, of four options put
on the table by Vista Healthplan,
Inc. (the county's present provider)
-- is 6.95 percent higher than the old
That translates into a total annual
increase of $34,348.44 to the
county, from the present
$494,322.24 to $528,670.68.
Per employee, the increase comes
out to $25.02 monthly, from
$360.08 to $385.10.
Because the county picks up the
cost of health insurance for employ-
ees, individuals who choose not to
include their families in the plan pay
The increase, however, will be felt
by employees whose families are
covered, given that they must pay
the difference between their county-
paid premium and the family rate.
That difference -comes out to
$574.19 monthly, an increase of
$37.31 from the present rate. Over-
all, the monthly rate for employees
with families goes from $896.96 to
Other than the rate increase, the
new and old plans. are essentially the
same. The only difference is in the
area of the deductible.,
Under the old plan, employees
paid zero deductible. Under the new
plan, employees will 'pay an annual
one-time deductible of $500.
The $500 applies to costs in-
curred in hospitals and ambulatory
and freestanding facilities, accord-
ing to insurance consultant Jim
Odom, who helped commissioners
with their decision.
Odom explained that the $500
could come from a host of areas, in-
cluding outpatient surgery, radiation
therapy, and mental and substance
abuse counseling, whether in a hos-
pital or other setting.
"If a primary physician does the
surgery, such as a mole removal, the
$500 doesn't apply," Odom said.
"Once the $500 is reached, the co-
Under the current setup, employ-
ees with families pay the same rate
no matter how many dependents.
Commissioners briefly discussed
the possibility of setting up a tier-
system, wheie the rates would be
determined by the number of de-
Under the tier system, for exam-
ple, an employee with a wife and
one child would pay a lower
monthly premium than an employee
with a wife and two children, etc.
Odom advised that such a system
was possible. He warned, however,;
that if the county went to a multiple;
tier system for employees with
families, the rates of other employ-
ees would have to go up to make up.
Remember, he told commission-.
ers, the insurance company was in
business to make money. The com-;
pany really didn't care how the cost
of the premiums was distributed, so
long as its monthly total of
$44,055.89 was assured, he said.

Peak Shifting' Saves Power
The timune of day when electricity is
sed can make a big difference to
lorida, and ultimately, to you. ,
By practicing "peak shifting" -
hifting the time of day when you
use such household appliances as
'our washing machine, vacuum or
dishwasher you can help reduce
electric demand during peak times
f the 'day, thereby reducing the
overall cost of power in Florida.
A consumer's demand for electric-
y is influenced by the eletricity-
onsuming appliances in his or her
ome or business, and the extent to
whichh those appliances are used.
The "load" that a utility must sup-
ly, meanwhile, is the total of all-
ustomers' electric demand.
Because customers use electricity
n different amounts at different
times of the day, the load changes
over the course of the day, the week
and the year, as well as with
changes in the weather.
A utility may generate electricity,
purchase power from other utilities,
or utilize a combination of both. Un-
like most products; it must be gener-
ated at the time of demand.
Therefore, there are "peak" peri-
ods of the day during which utilities
must produce additional electricity
to meet the demands of their cus-
To meet this additional demand
for electricity, utilities often use
"peaking generators." These peaking
generators, which burn oil or natural
gas to produce electricity, are
brought on line only at peak periods
of the day, and run for short periods
While peaking generators gener-
ally cost less to build than other
types of generators, they also have
relatively high fuel costs because
they are typically much less efficient
in the use of fuel.
Your electric rates include the cost
for the generating units (if any) that
a utility owns and operates, the cost
of fuel for those units, the cost of
power purchased from other
utilities, and the cost of any conser-
vation or load management pro-
grams offered by the utility.
Reducing the total amount of elec-
tricity you use reduces your bill. In
'addition, reducing electric use at
peak times of the day, or peak shift-
ing, saves expensive fuel that would
otherwise be used in a peaking unit.
That translates into savings for all
customers of that utility.
Use electric appliances such as

'Dr. Scoles Leads Medical Mission
(Continued From Page 9)
/:a day clinic and provide hurricane
"Once they figured out that we
,-were the relief system, everybody
mobbed the building," Scoles says.
The situation got a little uncom-
i.fortable for a while, but nothing
really serious, given that the group
*,was able to retreat within a walled
compound with high walls, electri-
4-*fied barbwire on the top and iron
; gates at the front.
The group then proceeded to dis-
tribute food, clothing, water and
other essentials through the barb
, wire, while the medical team tended
- to about 150 sick people, most of
whom were suffering from diarrhea,
dehydration, cholera and other
, Scoles doesn't fault the Guatema-
lans for the mob scene.
"If people think there's a finite
.. amount of food or water or anything
like that, they are going to do any-
thing to try and get it," he says, not-
g ing that these were people who had
gone without food or water for days.
,. Indeed he describes a situation ap-
1 proximating chaos in the wake of
the hurricane, given the flooding,
-mudslides, lack of passable roads
and an inefficient and corrupt gov-
ernment that did little to alleviate
the human misery, either because of
a lack of will or of resources.
It largely fell to private and chari-
table organizations such as Seteca,
which had its own broadcasting sys-
tern and organized a hurricane relief
effort, and to American and other
foreign groups such as Scoles', to
- provide a measure of relief to the
"It was an adventure," Scoles says
of the experience.
He relates driving through three
feet of running water to reach one
village. On another occasion, it
rained so hard and steady during a
night when the group stayed in a
small town that group members
feared the river right behind their
hotel would overflow and rip the,
structure from its foundation, if not
prevent their return to the home
"It was the worst storm I've ever
been in," Scoles says.
All the while, the group was deal-
ing with people made desperate by
the loss of loved ones and of all
their earthly possessions. Under the
circumstances. nerves fr.i, d a)J -
"Whenever you put a group of 20,
21 people who aren't used to being
in any danger at all and put them in
some kind of danger, nerves tend to
get real thin," Scoles relates.
As a result, the group returned to
Seteca midweek and helped with the
cleanup of the hurricane-damaged
campus, as well as regrouping and
reorganizing the medical supplies.
At one point, the group contem-
plated making the trek to the moun-
tain village of Panajachel, home of
former Jefferson County resident
Lloyd Monroe, who has established
a nondenominational mission there.
Near Panajachel is Lake Atitlian,
which Scoles describes as a beauti-
ful lake in a volcano crater about
7,000 feet above sea level.
To reach the village would have
required going over the mountain.
Too, because a portion of the road
to the village had washed out, it
would have required fording a river
on foot and backpacking some four
miles to where the road was pass-
Even so, the group was going to at-
tempt the trip, given it was on the
original itinerary. As luck would
have it, the threat of Hurricane
Wilma put an end to that plan. It
was a good decision too, because
even though the hurricane never
blew in, more of the road to the vil-
lage collapsed on its own.
One of the highlights of the trip,
according to Scoles, was the visit to
Casa Hallelujah, an orphanage
started by an American couple in
1989. The orphanage i home to 600
children, ranging in age from in-
fancy to 18.
On Friday, the group visited Ca-
. ,iti Bqnjaminj a .sinaileorphanage
hear the city dump. Both visits af-
forded the group members an oppor-
tunity to relax and interact with the
On Saturday, the group visited
Antiqua, a Spanish city dating from
1778, before returning to the states
Overall, Scoles counts the trip --
his third to Guatemala, it turns out --
a success, even if it didn't accom-
plished what the group had set out
to do. Not only did the group help
with the hurricane relief effort, but it
was able to distribute 550 pounds of
medicines and help some 2000 to
2,500 people in one fashion or an-
other, he says.
On a personal level, the trip reaf-
firmed his Christian values and gave
him a greater appreciation of his
blessings, he says.
"Americans have a sense of enti-
' cement," Scoles says. "We don't re-
alize how rich we are. It helps me
reset my brain and realize how
lucky I am.
"In America, we're concerned
about time and money. But down
there, we're on Guatemala time.
There is no emphasis on time. The
emphasis is on doing the job. For
me, it helps me to get centered and
get back to the important things in
life, which are God, my family and
helping people who really need to
Nor is he giving up on the original
plan. In July, in fact, he's returning
to Guatemala to visit .the
orphanages, Panajachelh and. -he
three Mayan villages missed on the
"We'll take a team of 20 people
back in July," Scoles says. "We'll do
medical clinics and work with the
kids doing Vacation Bible School,
which we did everyday we were
Ultimately, his goal is to travel
deep into the Amazon in South
America and minister to the natives
"I have a group that is willing to
fly me 400 miles up the Amazon
River and put me on a boat to go up
the river and treat people who have
never seen white people," Scoles
.He admits that the Amazon trip
will be harder to pull off and no
doubt more dangerous. On the other
hand, the rewards should be greater
if he ever does it, he says.
