Racetrack Suit Sees Activity


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

The plaintiffs in the lawsuit
against the go-cart racetrack being
built on the east side of the county
have filed new paperwork in the
case.


pr4


The new filing submitted on M
day requests that the two defend
-- the Jefferson County Boarc
_ County Commissioners and the
lahassee Karting Organization I
produce a slew of docum
within the next 30 days.
Among the documents reque

Facility, Meanwhile, is

80 Percent Complete


lents plaintiffs:
all applications for any type or
:sted kind of development approval filed:
* the with the county by the Tallahassee
Karting Association;
all maps or other documents
,4 showing whether the subject prop-
erty is within the 100-year flood,
plain;
all transcripts of the meetings of,
the County Commission "and any-
inferior boards of the county" where
such boards granted or considered
granting any development approval
to the developer; and
all documents showing who.
authorized the filing of all applica-.
tions for development approval con-,
cerning the development of the
property.
The latest filing comes a little
more than a week after the Tallahas-
see Democrat reported that the track
S asa.out 80 percent complete andc
that the developers hoped to open
the facility as early as January.
A perusal of the case record
shows that no court action has taken
place since the original complaint
was filed on Sept. 15, 2004.
e Consider: On Oct. 13, 2004, an
I- amended complaint was filed. On
Nov. 14, 2004, the Tallahassee


Karting Organization LLC filed a
motion to dismiss and on Nov. 22,
2004, the county followed suit with
a like motion.
On June 1, 2005, William Owen,
the attorney for the Tallahassee
Karting Organization LLC, asked to
be removed from the case, citing "ir-,
reconcilable difference in opinion"
with the defendants subject to the
value of his services.
Given the reported near comple-
tion of the racetrack and the fact that
the court rarely if ever schedules a
hearing absent the initiation of the
litigants, didn't it behoove one side
or the other to push for a resolution
of the case?
According to Reeves, any risk
stemming from the irresolution of
the suit falls squarely on the defen-
dants.
"While the case is pending, they
"ouild at their risk," Reeves said
Monday. "It's not my job to protect
them. They're big boys. They're cer-
tainly at risk."
He said the judge could well de-
cide to make the developers tear
down the facility or force these indi-
vidual to make major changes to fa-
cility to bring it into compliance
with a court order.


But wouldn't a judge be influ-
enced by the near completion of the
facility and the fact that the plain-
tiffs didn't push for a resolution of
the case prior to the start of con-
struction?
Not at all, according to Reeves.
He said the risk was strictly the de-
velopers'.


"They're big boys," he reiterated.
"If they want to take that risk, that's
their concern. I represent developers
too, and I would be reluctant to do
what they're doing. You're at risk." -
As for dropping the suit, Reeves
said that was not an option. He said
the reason the suit has lain dormant

Fred Shoffner Elected


Chair Of School Board


RAY CICHON
Managing Editor

Fred Shofner was elected Chair-
man at the annual reorganization
meeting of the School Board, held
Tuesday, Nov. 22.
,; With Superintendent Phil Barker
presiding, outgoing Chair Beverly
Sloan passed the gavel to Shofner.
In her final remarks as
chairperson, Sloan thanked all for
their support.
"We face challenges ahead, and
we must keep the students as the
main focus of our work, while we
continue to strive for educational
excellence and equity," Sloan said.
Commenting to Shofner, who be-
gins his first time as Chair, Sloan re-
marked that a good chairperson


was patient, fair, tolerant, compas-
sionate, diplomatic, with a sense of
humor, and remains true to
himself/herself.
If memory serves, Sloan has
served on the Board some 12 years,
and has been chairman at least three
times.
Franklin Hightower was elected
Vice-chair.
The reorganization process was
orchestrated by Barker, according to
School Board Policy, which states
that the chair is elected annually in
numerical rotation, according to the
district served.
Shofner represents District 3 and
Hightower represents District 4.
Sloan retained her position as
Board representative to the liaison
to Small Schools District Consor-


Shofner will represent the Board
on the Building A Committee.
Board Member Ed Vollertsen re-
tained his position as Board
Representative to the Legislative
Committee.
Board Member Charles Boland
will serve as Board Representative
to the Interlocal Agreement Com-
mittee with the City and County.
In other Board news, at a special
School Board Meeting, following
the reorganization, the Board unani-
mously approved their 2005-2006
salaries at $23,386, as recommended
by the Florida School Board Asso-
ciation.

County Seeks TO
Upgrade Growth
Management Plan

LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

The county has applied for a,
$15,000 state grant to update the
capital improvement element of the
Comprehensive Plan.
Grants Director Roy Schleicher
made commissioners aware of the
opportunity to apply for the funding
on Nov. 15.
Schleicher explained that the
money, which was being made
available through the Department of
Community Affairs (DCA), was to
help counties meet the new require-
ments of the Growth Management
Act.
- He said the money could be used
to address the capital improvement
element, to implement a concur-

LAZARO ALEMAN ently serves as the Code Enforce- Idea Is Create creation of a separate seven-member
Senior Staff Writer ment Board -- a situation that Separate Seven Code Enforcement Board was luke-
Planning Official Bob Arredondo Mep e Seven warm at best.
Commissioners continue circling calls "problematic". Member Board "I think code enforcement is go-
,1- b - h- + tf. -n n i the near filu-


mthe issue of coae enforcement. But_
with the holidays coming up, they
have decided to postpone seriously
grappling with the issue until after
the New Year.-
As it stands now, Commissioner
Jerry Sutphin has. abandoned his
proposal to reduce the 10-member
Planning Commission by five mem-
bers and create a separate Code En-
forcement Board with the five
removed members.
Sutphin said the feedback he had
received from the public was nega-
tive to the idea. Nor did the idea re-
ceived much support from his
fellow commissioners,


"At present, the Planning Com-
mission wears two hats," Arredondo
said recently. "I think that's prob-
lematic. It seems to me that if we're
going to go into the court system,
we should have all the bases cov-
ered and meet the statutory require-
ments."
Per Florida statute, counties with
small populations such as Jefferson
County's must appoint seven-
member code enforcement boards.
And ideally, these boards should in-
clude an architect, an engineer, a
contractor and a realtor, among
other professions.
"I guess what I'm recommending


is that if we're really want to go seri-
ously into code enforcement, we
need to organize it so that it meets
all the statutory requirements,"
Arredondo said. "I do believe that
because of the makeup of our pre-
sent board, we're not in the best of
positions."
Sutphin agreed with Arredondo's
assessment.
"Right now, we have a planning
and zoning board that makes the
rules they recommend to us, and
then they have to enforce what they
write," Sutphin said. "That's like the
judge putting on a police hat and en-
--forcing the law."


nlllg LUto e necessary in. ll ., ll -
ture," Commissioner Skeet Joyner
said. "So I don't have a problem
with starting a code enforcement
board per se.
"But I think it's going to be diffi-
cult to find people willing to volun-
teer for such a board. It's tough
decisions that members will be
called to make on their neighbors on
a voluntary basis."
He suggested that any code en-
forcement board formed should con-
sist of five members -- one each
from the five districts, appointed by
the appropriate commissioner -- and
two at-large members appointed by

DEBBIE SNAPP
Staff Writer

A traditional Thanksgiving meal
was served to approximately 180
County residents at the Opera
House, Thursday.
Organized by Gloria McGee, and
hosted by the many volunteers, this
first time holiday dinner is expected
to become an annual event.
All of the food served was do-
nated, and most was prepared at the
homes of the volunteers and brought
in ready to serve.
This was a "sit down, eat here"
meal, said McGee. "We did have
50-75 meals prepared for take out,
because we wanted people to share
this Thanksgiving meal with friends
and neighbors, not able to attend.
"It was wonderful. I had so many
volunteers and donations. Most of
the volunteers I'd never met before,
and I want to express my sincere
thanks to all of them."
McGee began requesting dona-
tions for this event in October. She
wanted to offer a nice place for peo-
ple in need to assemble and dine at
no charge.
She announced an open invitation
to the elderly, single residents,
homeless, working poor, the lonely,


and anyone wishing to share their
Thanksgiving Day with others.
McGee said she had no idea how
the day would go but is totally satis-
fied with the way it turned out. She
hopes next year will bring in even
more' to share their Thanksgiving
Day.
The meal began at 11 a.m. and
volunteers stayed until 2 p.m.' to
serve turkey, potatoes, stuffing,
gravy, green beans, cranberry sauce,
fruit cocktail, rolls, and iced tea.
The baked goods served for dessert
included everything from sweet po-
tato pie, to brownies, to fruit topped
cheesee cakes.
McGee mentions that volunteer
Nornma Martin began to crave tur-
keys the day before in preparation.
The 10 turkeys were cooked by
residents at The Grove Apartments.
With resident Barbara Holland also
baking four huge pans of stuffing
using her favorite family recipe.
The sweet potato pies were baked
by Maggie Killingsworth. When a
"table neighbor" asked about her
recipe she gladly gave it, as at-
tendees scrambled for a writing im-
plement.
McGee has already begun discuss-
ing plans for next year's meal. Vol-
unteers were already offering to
help out with various aspects of the

Job Opportunities


in Construction


Opinion & Comment


! Here's a fact that could be written
in cement. Construction is and al-
ways has been one of the nation's
leading industries and the backbone
of the U.S. economy.'
Construction is growing at a pace
requiring 240,000 positions to be
filled every year to keep up with the
industry's growth and demands.
The U.S. Department of Labor's
bureau of Labor Statistics estimates
that from 2002-2012, the industry
will create more than one million
new jobs, making it the only goods-
producing industry sector in which
employment is expected to grow in
those 10 years.
All of this means wide-ranging job
opportunities with a variety of un-
limited options.
Careers in construction offer op-
portunities with no ceiling where
the sky is the limit.
In fact, one of the reasons there
are so many net'. career optionsin
the field is becau.e''.orkers'?pi'pdly
climb -'th career ladder into manage-
ment. Clearly, the construction in-
dustry offers more than a good
,paycheck. It offers the unique op-
iortunity to become directly in-
qolved in building the country -


especially in times of crisis.
Shortly after the September 11,
2001, terrorists attacks, contractors
were hard at work renovating, the
Pentagon in Arlington, Va. and now,
contractors are hard at work in the
recovery and rebuilding efforts fol-
lowing the devastation of the recent
hurricanes in the Gulf Coast region.
Associated Builders and Contrac-
tors (ABC) is working to maintain
and enhance a strong and stable in-
dustry that meets and even exceeds
tomorrow's needs by providing
craft, apprenticeship, and safety and
management training through its 79
chapters nationwide.
ABC members are continually rec-
ognized for their outstanding com-
mitment to safety, winning national
awards through organizations such
as the Construction Users Roundta-
ble.
ABC continually partners with
studeit chapters at colleges and uni-
versiies nation .ide to develop the
ne\xI tva new generation of elementary, mid-
dle and high school students and
their parents learn about the benefits
of a career in construction through
.www.trytools.org.

Retiree Recalls Boxing Career


Dick Glover gets his exercise
walking every day. You probably
see the 71 year-old retired state
Auditor as he treks down Jefferson
Street.
Exercise has always been impor-
tant to Glover starting at an early
age because he launched his profes-
sional boxing career at the young
age of 14.
For seven and a half years Glover
engaged in the "sweet science" cam-
paigning as a middleweight in the
late 1940's and early 50's.
At 6 foot three inches, he tipped
the scales at 160 for his 56 fights.
He fought in Madison Square Gar-
den, once the mecca of professional
boxing, a number of times. Mod-
estly, he says, sometimes in prelimi-
naries and sometimes in the main
events.
Of his 56 outings, he was success-
ful 47 times, collecting 17 knock-,
outs along the way.
His biggest purse was $4500,
nothing compared to today's profes-
sional boxing purses, but "back then
it was a lot of money," he says.

in.a rematch.
Glover was tall for a
middleweight. His six foot three
inch frame was five to six inches
taller than most of his opponents.
And, boxing trainers point out it is
easier to punch down towards a
smaller opponent, than punch up to-


wards a taller opponent.
Glover says he was a good fighter,
not a great one.
When he faced ranked Joey Giam-

for the count in'the third round-.

BY DENNIS FOGGY
Columnist

We used to have an expression,:
when I was a kid whenever we
heard something of questionable,
truth. It was "put up or shut up". In.
its simplicity, that would end any
debate. Decades later, I have learned,
that those simple childhood rules,
have changed. Today, no matter if
something is factual or not, if you.
say it long enough and loud enough,,
it begins taking on a life of its own.
We have been hearing for a long
time now that the Bush administra-
tion "manipulated" intelligence in-
formation to get us into the Iraq
War. In my childish way, I have
been waiting for someone to say,
"put up or shut up" to those making
these charges.
To date, I have not seen or heard
any credible evidence that such ma-
nipulation took place. So where is
the evidence to support these
charges? Answer, apparently such
hard facts are not necessary.


Bush haters and war protesters are
obviously eager to immediately get
on board regardless of truth worthi-
ness. Others of the opposition party,
-hungry to find anything adverse
against their opponents, become
willing participants in advancing
this or anything that will better their
political position.
Most discouraging, however, are
those intelligent and educated citi-
zens who are quite willing to form
opinions without any attempt to ver-
ify the truth or seek the facts to sup-
port or discredit such a major
allegation.
As a society, we have lost touch
with out strong emotions and na-
tional solidarity that followed the
terrorist's attacks of 9/11. Then, as a
people, we realized we were no
longer immune from terrorist
attacks.
Additionally, we recognized the
reality that a great evil in the world
was quite serious about destroying
us and our way of life.
The very thought that a vicious
dictator and American hater may be


developing chemical, biological and
nuclear materials that could annihi-
late millions of people and be easily
passed along to terrorists, frightened
all of us.
The world intelligence community
from Russia and China to France
and Germany agreed conclusively
that Saddam Hussain was secretly
developing materials for such weap-
ons. So strong was the intelligence
evidence at the time that the likes of
John Kerry and Ted Kennedy stood
in the well of the U.S. Senate and
pressed for the immediate necessity
to take military actions to eliminate
this threat. I remember we were all
pretty scared!
Today we are allowing a large
number of "Monday Morning Quar-
terbacks" to have amnesia regarding
their feelings, position and actions
prior to the Iraq War. In the face of
upcoming midterm elections and
wavering public support for the
ware, those that eagerly voted to
support President Bush in taking
military action, are desperately
scrambling to distance themselves


in the Post Office, we talked about
walking and exercising and he men-
tioned his stint as a professional
boxer.
I'm a boxing fan so I was inter-
ested in learning more about his ca-
reer.
I asked Glover if he had some pic-
tures of himself as a young fighter
but he said those have been lost a
long time ago.
Unlike many professional boxers,
Glover's brain wasn't mush after his
career was over.
He enrolled in college and earned
a degree in Certified International
Auditing. A new career was
launched.
He has a passion for collecting
sports cards and coins.
Glover, has been a numismatist for
65 years. The collection of sports
cards began 20 years ago.
He can dazzle you with informa-
tion about his vast collection and
how he came to find some of the
rare coins and cards.
Funny, the things we can learn
about each other if we only take the
time.




Reality
any way they can from the facts.
It is not surprising, therefore, that
so many have joined to foster an as-
sumption that Bush "tricked" them
into supporting the war. How con-
venient, providing there is no neces-
sity to provide any proof. Saying he
had "different" intelligence, just
doesn't wash.
What intelligence and how was it
different? The larger question is, are
Americans gullible enough to con-
tinue going along with this apparent
ruse in the absence of any hard
facts?
Most devastating is the increasing
call for the withdrawal of our forces
from Iraq, kindled by this apparent
disinformation program. Americans
have become impatient partners, in
the war effort, increasingly restless
at the loss of American lives in com-
bat. Nothing new for the children of
the Great Generation. We have
proven our willingness to cut and
ran from Vietnam, Somalia and the
first gulf war leaving the citizens to

through their daily functions quite
admirably, but in the absence of an
official chief, the avalanche of ad-
ministrative duties has fallen into
the lap of Lucille Hunter.
In official capacity, Hunter is the
department billing clerk, although in
recent weeks she has overseen the
entire department.
She has made sure that shifts
were covered, vehicles were main-
tained, reported to the Board of
County Commissioners, the County
Clerk, and Medical Director.
She has handled disciplinary ac-
tions where needed, and given en-
couragement, when appropriate.
She also saw the department
through a state inspection, which is
tough, under the best of circum-
stances.
The entire department should be
recognized for its outstanding ef-
forts, but in particular, Hunter
stands out for going well beyond her
job description, and keeping. the de-
partment up and running.
Somehow a thank you doesn't
seem enough, so I encourage any-
one running into Hunter, to please
pat her on the back for a job well
done.

Camellia Garden Circle


Hears Program On Orchids


DEBBIE SNAPP
Staff Writer

Members of the Camellia Garden
Circle carpooled from the home of
President Isabelle deSercey to Talla-
hassee for an Orchid presentation
and lunch on a recent Sunday after-
noon.
.: The program was presented by
Chucha Barber at her home. The
program was followed by a lunch-
eon of steaming hot pumpkin soup
arid a generous serving of asparagus
quiche and tossed salad, with a se-
lection of wines.
Barber has an orchid hot house in
her back yard, complete with a
working area containing a sink and
work table, and many varieties of
orchids.
"Once exotics, the orchid is now
a popular house plant," explained
Barber.
Other pointers she provides in-
clude:
. *Water once a week. Completely
saturate the plant in ventilated pot.
If the orchid bark seems damp or
:L


wet, do not water.
The greatest risk to the orchid
plant is too much water. Orchids
must not sit with standing water on
"their feet."
*Feed the orchid only during the
"growing season." "Season" varies
based on the plant type.
*Never repot an orchid when it's
in it's last bloom. This usually oc-
curs once a year following a bloom-
ing.
*Use quality orchid bark, those
with heavy charcoal base do not do
well for most orchids.
*Most common pests to the orchid
are Aphids. If you see any, separate
contaminated plant from the rest of
the orchids and spray. Repeat one
week later until evidence of Aphids
are gone.
Some popular orchid types
include:
*Pattley is the traditional corsage
flower. It has a short bloom life, and
is often fragrant.
*Pymbidium is a similar genera,
but smaller.
*Oncidium produces a lot of flow-
ers on a single spike. It is usually


yellow with brown or red accents. If
this produces the larger flowers, it is
sometimes called a "spider" orchid;
and is often green.
*Raphiopedilum, also called
"Rhaps" or "Lady Slippers," usually
produce a single flower shaped like
a slipper with wings.
It's usually red, purple, or green
and often combinations of those
colors.
*Rhataenopsis is the heartiest of
the common orchids. It has long
lasting blooms, usually pink, white,
or purple.
The next meeting of the Camellia
Garden Circle is scheduled for 2
p.m. Sunday, Dec. 11 at the home of
Jean Brenner.
The Program will focus on Trellis
Making. Brenner will give a few
suggestions ideal for different loca-
tions.
There will also be a holiday gift
exchange. Members are reminded to
bring in their gift for this fun event.
Also, snack items should be brought
in to share.

Jessi Amanda (Mandy) Connell
and Andrew William Taylor were
married on Aug. 6, 2005, at Wacissa
Pentecostal Holiness Church, by
Rev. John W. Cain.
The bride is the daughter of Wade
and Jacquie Connell, of Wacissa.
Her grandparents are Edgar and
Dona Connell.
The groom is the son of Col. Wil-
liam "Roger" Taylor of Oak Creek,
CO., and Mrs. Peggy Stillwell of
Tallahassee.

zier of Crawfordville.
Bridesmaids were Jennifer Nagy,
Heather Odom, and Stacy Poitinger,
of Tallahassee.
The bride's daughters, Alyssa and


Jordan, preceded the bride down the
aisle, ringing silver bells.
The groom's father served as Best
Man. Groomsmen were Mark
McGowan, Justin Vann, and Adam
Wilkinson.
Morgan Carraway was the ring
bearer.
The bride's brothers, Cody and
Marshall Connell, served as candle

As the mothers were seated, Deb-
bie McLeod sang: "Wind Beneath
My Wings.
After Mandy was presented at the
altar by her father, he sang: "You

After the giving and receiving of
rings, Andrew surprised Mandy-

Alyssa and Jordan, by placing gold
and diamond heart necklaces on
them to the Keith Urban song:
"Making Memories of Us."
Debbie McCleod then sang the
"Lord's Prayer."
The reception was held in the fel-

Christmas Drive In Dire Need


Of Donations, Volunteers


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

Although the desperate need for-
donations for the annual County
Christmas Drive, was announced
weeks ago, as of Monday morning,
*:only two donors have come for-
ward.
CO-coordinator Gladys Roann at-
tributed the lack of donations to the
fact that citizens have been over-
whelmed by contributing to hurri-
cane victims -


"This is the worst year we've had
yet," said Roann. "We have 32
families that are in need this year
and there are 87 children in those
-families, and that list will probably
grow."'
She added that without donations,
many children between the ages of
six months and 16 years old, will
not have a Christmas this year.
Donations of children's toys, es-
pecially toys for girls are needed,
as well as items for teens, adults
and the elderly, along with mone-
-tary donations.


Power Wheelchairs

Available, If Qualified


Wishes on Wheels makes avail-
|, 'ble Electric Power Wheelchairs to
non-ambulatory Senior Citizens, 65
S years old and up, and the perma-
nently disabled of any age, if they
qualify.
Usually, there is no charge or out
of pocket expenses for the power
wheelchair, including shipping and
delivery to the home by a
technician, who makes the final ad-
justments to fit the individual, and
sho\\ s him/her how to use and
maintain the chair.
No deposit is required, and there is
no obligation for determining if one
is qualified.
Electric wheelchairs are provided.
to those who cannot walk and also
cannot operate a manual wheelchair
sufficiently, or safely enough to care
f'or themselves in their residence.
They do have to be able to safely
operate a joystick controller on the
armrest and understand basic in-
| tructions.
s There are additional
qualifications, including that the pa-
tient's doctor approves and recom-
mends his/her need for a power
wheelchair.


For more information, call 1-800-
823-52207.- ..
The Wishes 'on Wheels program's
main purpose and goal is to develop
public awareness of the assistance
options that exist to allow senior
citizens and the permanently dis-
abled to remain independent in their
homes without incurring extra ex-
pense.
Without this awareness and assis-
tance, the senior and his/her family
may prematurely choose a nursing
home or take on expensive in-home
care, simply because they cannot
move safely (or quickly enough)
from room to room, to get to the
bathroom, the kitchen, or to answer.

rency system, or to initiate a vision-
ing process.
His recommendation, he said, was
that the county apply for the money
to address the capital improvement
element.
The deadline for submitting the
application was Nov. 18.


"Anything anyone can give will.
help make someone's Christmas a'
little brighter," said Roann.
All donations go to the needy;:
families in the county and all work
provided is done by volunteers,.
which are also still needed.
Roann said that the drive usually
provides each child on the list with-
at least two new toys.
The deadline to make donations is,
Dec. 12. "If we don't get more do-,
nations ,we'll have to go back and
look at our list and only give to the
most needy of families," she added.
"And we don't want to have to do
that." :
This combined effort of civic
groups, religious organizations and,
private citizens, help the less fortu-
nate enjoy a more joyous holiday,,
Roann relates.
Last year, the community '%as
able to assist more than 80 families.
and approximately 132 children, as
well as some dozen of senior citi-"
zens, with gift certificates, food, ar-.
ticle of clothing and toys.
To adopt a family, which is usu-,
ally done by'business contributors,
a child or an elderly resident during
the drive, contact Roann at 342-

342-0178.
Drop-offs can be made at the

Code Enforcement


"(Continued From Page 1)
the board.
Furthermore, the county should
hot look for violations, he said.
,:Rather, the cases coming before the
-board should be complaint-driven,
,he said.
Dick Bailar, a citizen and longtime
.proponent of code enforcement,
thought t the idea merited serious
consideration.
II "I think code enforcement is im-
portant," Bailar said. "I think a
-.workshop would be good to see
.Avhat the ramifications are.
"I think if we we're talking about
wanting to raise our quality of life
and property values, we need code
enforcement. But we will also have
Ato decide what we can do within the
:parameters of what we can enforce."
Another citizen, Tom LaMotte, of-
,'fered that the county could possibly
'benefit from the experiences of
!'imilar.-counties, relative to code en-
forcement.
"Maybe we can get information
from them," LaMotte said.
Arredondo noted that he had al-
.eady started such research, if on a
'limited basis. But if it was the
-board's wish, he would pursue the
-issue more aggressively, he said.


"This is an important issue," Arre-
dondo said.
On, a related matter, Planning
Commission Attorney Scott Shirley
clarified that a commissioner, like a
citizen, can initiate a code enforce-
ment proceeding with the code en-
forcement officer.
The issue arose when Sutphin
asked Arredondo -- who also dou-
bles as the code enforcement officer
-- to look into a possible code viola-
tion in his district.

Arredondo responded to the effect
that absent a citizen's written com-
plaint, he could not act on a viola-
tion.
"That irritated me, because I didn't
give up my citizenship when I be-
came a commissioner," Sutphin
said.
Arredondo explained that his re-
sponse stemmed from the fact that
in the past, the board had instructed
him that "I shouldn't take a lot of
code enforcement actions without a
lot of written complaints from citi-
zens".
But he understood now that the
wording in the Development Code
"allows commissioners to be com-
plainants," he said.

Hoodiacol consist of 3 key ingredients
incorporated into rice bran oil with
natural flavoring 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.

The flag that flies in front of the
Monticello Post Office was torn
last week, the bottom stripe waving
in the breeze.
Clerk Derek Glass said that the
Post Office doesn't have a spare,
but as soon as it was realized that
the flag was torn, a new one was or-
dered, should be arriving soon, and
will be hung as soon as it does..
