Of List

LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

Road Department Superintendent
David Harvey's latest assignment
calls for him to produce a list of the
county's roads and bridges and the
condition of each.
* The request comes from the Jef-
ferson Legislative Committee,
which wants the information to per-
suade lawmakers that the county is
in dire need of funding to replace its
bridges.
"This is getting to be a key issue,"
said Dick Bailar, who presented the
request on behalf of the committee.
He noted that 30-or-so years ago,
the state had turned over numerous
state-owned roads and bridges to the
county without providing any fund-
ing for the maintenance of these
roads and bridges.
Now it was getting to 'the point
hdia many of the roads and bridges
%% ere in dire need of repairs or resur-
facing and the county didn't have
the money to do anything about it,
Bailar said.
'He said the committee had taken
the replacement of bridges as one of
its priorities for the next session of
the Legislature.
On a different note, Bailar re-
ported to commissioners that the
Jefferson County Utility Develop-
ment Committee was making head-
way in its pursuit of funding for the
installation of a countywide sanitary
sewer system.
Bailar said the group was in the
process of applying for technical as-
sistance grants from the Department
of Community Affairs (DCA) and
the Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP).
,At the same time, the group had
been approved to apply for a DEP
low-interest loan, he said.
More exciting, according to Bai-
lar, the Florida Rural Water Asso-
ciation has offered to do a free
feasibility study. That study, Bailar
said, would determine the cost of
the sanitary sewer system, what ar-
eas of the county it should serve,
and what rates should be charged to
customers, among other things.
"Based on the study, we will know
what our options are and if the sys-
tem is worth pursuing," Bailar said.
"It's an exciting thing."

County Continuing Its Negotiations

For Repair Of Storm-Damaged Roads


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

Despite what appeared to be a
done deal earlier, county officials
continue to negotiate with a contrac-
tor for the repair of 14 dirt roads
damaged by Hurricane Dennis.
The problem arose because the
$110,000 that FEMA (Federal
Emergency Management Admin-
istration) awarded the county for the
repair of the 14 roads was $58,000
short of the $168,380 quoted by
Curts Construction Company, the
low bidder.
As last reported, commissioners
instructed Road Department Super-
intendent David Harvey to negotiate
with the contractor and have the
Road Department do the balance of
the project, or about $58,000 worth
of work.
Harvey reported back recently
that the negotiations with the con-
tractor had produced three options.
The first, he said, was for the con-
tractor to repair two of the roads for
a total of $144,000 and the Road
Department to do the rest of the
roads.
"Meaning that the county would
still have to come up with $34,777,"
Harvey said.
The second option, he said, was
for the Road Department to do the
entire job as time allowed.
Harvey explained that although
FEMA allowed the contractor 90
days to complete the work, it gave
public entities 14 months to do the
job.


The last option, Harvey said,
called for the contractor to do all the
work and for the Road Department
to donate $58,000 worth of lime-
rock and piping materials.
His choice, Harvey said, was the
last option, which the board pro-
ceeded to approve.
In other Road Department news,
Harvey informed the commission
that the Razor Creek bridge on
Bishop Road would be closed sev-
eral months.
Harvey said the Department of
Transportation (DOT) had informed
him recently that the contractor had
decided to postpone the replacement
of the bridge until after the holidays.
Meaning that the project wouldn't
get started until March 4, and then it
would be another 90 days until com-
pletion, he said.

TO Upgrade Enhanced 911 System

Senior Staff Writer Users To Benefit The new equipment includes

The Sheriffs Department recently
received a $139,000-plus grant that
allows it to upgrade its Enhanced
911 (E-911) system.
Grace Thomas, 911 director, said
Wednesday that the $139,610.61
awarded by the Rural County Wire-
less Grant Board on Oct. 6 will al-
low Jefferson County to implement
phase 2 of the E-911 system.
Phase 2, as Thomas explains it,


will give the system the capability to
identify and pinpoint the location of
cell-phone callers who are unable to
provide this critical information be-
cause of injury or other extenuating
circumstances.
Under the" current system, the 911
dispatcher can automatically estab-
lish the identity and location of call-
ers using wire phones. But the dis-
patcher can only identify the tower

an


electronic mappming component mthat
allows the dispatcher to pinpoint the
origin of calls and so guide emer-
gency crews to the spot.
Thomas expects it will take nine
months to a year before the details
are worked out and the new system
is up and running.
Even so, some wrinkles will re-
main. She points out that the new
system will not be able to pinpoint

Fees



Eyed


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

With the tempo of developments
increasing across the county and
monies from the fire and ambulance
impact fees beginning to trickle in,
county officials are considering the
possibility of imposing other impact
fees.
Commissioner Skeet Joyner in-
formed the board recently that the
Small Counties Coalition, through
its technical assistance program, is
willing to give the .county $8,250 for
a transportation impact fee study.
The study, Joyner said, would
have to be completed by June. He
suggested that county staff contact
Government Services Corporation,
the consultant firm that did the study
for the fire and ambulance impact
fees, to get the process started.
A transportation impact fee study
would determine the exact effect of
new developments on the county's
roads, in terms of wear-and-tear and
traffic congestion, among other fac-
tors.
It would also determine the
amount that the county could charge
new developments to compensate
for the impact of the growth on the
.roads.
It cost the county $15,000 for the
study justifying the imposition of
the fire and ambulance impact fees.
Those impact fees, which went
into effect Aug. 1, were $96.32 per
house for the fire service and
$123.70 per house for the ambu-
lance service, for a total of $220.04.
(The impact fees for commercial, in-
dustrial and institutional structures
are figured on a per footage basis.)
According to figures from the
Clerk of Courts office, the fire and
ambulance impact fees have pro-
duced a total of $5,968.48 thus far.
That breaks down to $2,504.32 for
the fire service and $3,464.16 for
the ambulance service.
Impact fees, by definition, are one-
time charges levied against new
construction -- both residential and
commercial -- to help pay for the
cost of the increased government
services demanded by the growth.
According to the experts, every
new resident imposes actual and po-
--tential demands on county services,
as well as adding to traffic conges-
tion and increasing the wear and tear
on roads.
Impact fees are a compensatory
tool that allows governments to re-
coup a certain portion of the costs
they incur to provide the additional
services required by an increasing
population.
Impact fees, moreover, are consid-
ered politically palatable, as they
principally affect people who are
not yet part of the community and
so can't take out their outrage on the
current office holders.
It is incorrect, however, to think
that impact fees never affect current
residents. In fact, current residents
who build new houses or expand
their existing dwellings are subject
to the charges.
Impact fees are due at the time the
building permit is pulled. By law,
the monies collected from impact

Information Still Sought About

Recently Found Vets Honor Roll


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

Veteran's Affairs Officer Mike-
Bishop has expressed disappoint-
ment that despite an October article
in the Monticello News seeking in-
formation about a recently discov-
ered Veterans Honor Roll, no infor-
mation has been forthcoming.
The Honor Roll formerly hung in
the old JCHS Building A, and was
made with great effort, and hand
written names.. .


Bishop can be contacted at 342-
0211.
He said the piece is considered to
be an historic piece bf Jefferson
County's history, and was recently
discovered in a closet during reno-
vations at Building A.
Some of the unanswered ques-
tions are:
When was it made? Who made
it? Why was it made? Why was it
placed in a closet?
Titled "Our Honor Roll," it meas-
ures approximately two and a half
-feet by two and a half feet, and

Behind the glass is a list of JCHS

A few of the names have a self-
adhesive old fashioned gold or sil-
ver star before them, believed to be
the names of those who were killed
in the line of duty.
In the center of the original sec-
tion, is an old vertical photograph
of the American Flag. -
A hinged section, approximately
eight to nine inches wide by two
and a half feet long, was later
added to the original piece.
All of the names are apparently
written in the same handwriting
and listed alphabetically in both the
original piece and the hinged addi-
tion.
Each name was written on a piece
of paper and wrapped around a
small wooden slat and placed in the
frame.
Bishop continues to seek the his-
tory behind the work and wishes to
have it restored to its original con-
dition.
The wood needs to be refinished,
the glass replaced and the missing
names duplicated.
"After we find the history and
have it restored, I would like to ask
permission to have it hung in the
Courthouse," said Bishop. "It is a
very valuable piece of Jefferson
County's history."
To date, inquiries from those who
were thought might know some-
thing about the Honor Roll, have
yielded naught.
Given the painstaking work in-
volved in creating the Honor Roll,
it would seem that someone in the
area would be aware of how it
_came about, and this is what
Bishop seeks to discover.

"The original information I had
was that the contractor was going to
start on the project in November,"
Harvey said.
As a result, he had had Road De-
partment crews tear out the old
bridge, given that it was slated for
replacement, Harvey said.
"Meanwhile, the road is now
closed, and this is a connector road,"
Harvey said.
Commissioners instructed Harvey
to look into the possibility of having
a temporary bridge installed at the
location.

the other males in the area were not
involved.
These were identified as David
Arundel, Roger Nye and Jamie
Rogers. All were issued trespass
warnings for the store.
Patel told Ward. during the inci-
dent that he feared for his life.
A video of Metts taking the liq-
uor out of the store was secured
from store surveillance, however,
the rest of the incident were not on
the video, and the knife was seized
as evidence.

Gifted students now have a
chance to get the best possible edu-
cation.
A nonprofit organization servicing
bright, underprivileged youth is ac-
cepting applications for its Quest-
Bridge program, which links
scholarship programs available., at
various top universities with quali,-
fled students in need. ,
The program gives bright;-low-
income youth the opportunity to ob-
tain scholarships to excellent
universities across the United States '
by matching them with available
scholarship funds from partner uni-
versities. .
"To stay competitive in the world,.
the United States must close the gap
between this underutilized segment
of our youth and our higher-
education institutions," said Tim
Brady, executive director of the
QuestBridge program.
According to Brady, the program
"links the best students who might
otherwise have been missed with the
nation's best universities."
By submitting a single application,.
students are linked with scholarship
opportunities at thirteen partner uni-
versities, including Amherst, Po-
mona, Rice and Williams.
Application fees are also waived,
making this universal application a
time-saver and cost-saver for stu-
dents.

House Fires Often

Start in Kitchens:


While there can be such a thing as
"too many cooks in the kitchen,"
having no cooks in the kitchen can
be far more common, safety experts
say, and potentially far more dan-
gerous.
Statistics show that three in 10
residential fires begin in the kitchen.
And, in nearly 75 percent of home
fires reported, the person responsi-.
ble for the fire was not in the area
when it started.
During the holiday season, the
U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission (CPSC), Underwriters
Laboratories (UL) and the Associa-
tion of Home Appliance Manufac-
turers (AHAM) have teamed up to
offer the following common sense
steps people can take to minimize
their risk of a kitchen fire: '
Wear clothing with short sleeves
or rolled-up long sleeves to keep'
them away from open flames.
Keep cooking surfaces clean,
Turn pot handles inward and su-
pervise children in the kitchen at all
times.


Always keep an eye on what you
are cooking.
"We're trying to get the message
out to'consumers to be very careful
about what they're doing in the
kitchen and don't leave pots and
pans unattended," said Hal Straton,
chairman of the U.S. Consumer
.Product Safety Commission.
Besides unattended ,cookifig,
grease fires present:, a, particularly
dangerous .situation because many
people's first instinct is to use water
to put out the flames, which can ac-
tually make the situation worse.
The best way to control a grease
fire is to smother it. Make sure you
keep a lid near by that fits the pan
you're using and, if a grease fire oc-
curs, bring the ,lid in low and cover
the pan to smother the fire.
Leave the lid on the pan. and allow
it to cool. If you have a household
fire extinguisher, make sure you
know how to properly use it.
Experts add that if a fire does oc-
cur, it is best to leave the house im-
rmediately and call 911 for help.

Ritalin May Harm Childr


BY TOM DE\WEESE
Columnist
In the old days, children were
warned not to smoke because: i|
would stunt their growth.
Apparently the same warning can'
now be issued to Ritalin.
Researchers at, the University of
Sydney have analyzed 29 separate'
studies on the subject and have con-
cluded that there is indication that'
some Ritalin users may experience
slow or even stunted growth.
"Parents should' expect their chil-


dren to lose some weight and grow
more slowly for a time after starting
on stimulant medication, and this
-should be monitored," says pediatri-
cian Sally Poulton of the University.
Two of the studies reviewed by
Poulton and colleagues suggest that
children who experience nausea and
vomiting as an early side effect of
Ritalin may be uniquely vulnerable
to slow grow th.
University of Iowa psychologist
John R. Kramer, Ph.D., who led one
of the research teams, said that this
Small ,sub, group of Ritalin users


ended up more than two inches
shorter than other Ritalin users.
Ritalin,, of course, is the drug of
choice give to children diagnosed
with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity.
Disorder (ADHD).
The drug is now administered to
over 10 million American children,
*beginning as early as four years old.
Promoted by federal education poli-
cies, use of the drug increased more
than 500 percent in the 1990s.
Yet, as usage continues to rise, Dr.'
Fred Baughman, a leading critic of
ADHD theory, warns that there still


one or watch the free world become
a footnote in Islamic history.
President Bush's lament that we
must "stay the course", is under-
standable, but lacks the essential
specifics of a comprehensive plan
for, the strategic, political' and tacti-
cal :policies necessary to achieve
success.
Additionally, as a former military
member, I have been shocked at
times by the apparent tactical inept-
ness of our commanders. Security
through the dispersion of troops is
fundamental.
Who was the bone head that al-
lowed the clustering of our forces in
a massive dining facility ripe for an
enemy attack.
Who can forget the terrible politi-
cally driven stop and go, stop and go,
tactics used when our Marines had
the Muslim cleric Sadder and his
henchmen cornered?
And, of course, there were those
idiot reservists at Abu Grab, who

is no valid research to prove that
ADHD even exists!
To date, according to Baughmtan,
there has never been a single bit of
physical evidence to confirm the
disease exists.
So-called experts on the subject
have refused to answer the simple
question, "is ADD/ADHD a real dis-
ease?"
Medical researchers charge that
ADHD does not meet the definition
of a disease or syndrome or any-
thing organic or biologic.

Letters...


Writer Urges Farm Land Not


Be Made into Developments


Dear Editor:
I think Marceline Hamilton said it
best in her letter to the paper, Nov.
18, 2005, about Jefferson County
and the Nation losing most of its
farm land to development.
She urged citizens to: "Please get
involved and help keep our agricul-
tural areas from turning into housing
areas," by opposing conversion of
AG-5 zoning to R-l zoning.
To make the point, remember this:
One developer from Sarasota said at
a Planning Commission meeting
that Monticello was just an exten-
sion of Tallahassee, and it was go-
ing to be developed.
I didn't know Tallahassee owned
us, but they talk like it does. He also
said that developers from all over
the country are looking at Jefferson
County for future development pro-
jects.
Someone told me a while back
that we should just go ahead and
change Monticello's name to Tal-
lacello. Humorous, but frightening.
Hamilton is a native of Jefferson
County. She knows, and her con-


cerns are valid. Unless you want to
see Jefferson County eaten up and
swallowed by development, please
make your voice heard to the
County Commission before it's too
late.
They swallowed Tallahassee up in
about 15 years. So it can happen
here within our lifetimes.
I went to Tallahassee several
weeks ago. At 6 p.m., the traffic was
backed up from Centerville to Tho-
masville Roads, a one mile traffic
jam.
I don't want to live in Tallacello,
do you?
Look at Gadsden County, our
neighbor 50 miles west, with 28
Comp Plan Ammendments ap-
proved so far, to allow big subdivi-
sions.
Now their County Commission is
considering a six month moratorium
on development because the growth
has been too rapid.
The main culprits are too many
septic tanks and no central sewer
system.
In Wakulla County, there was a


60 percent population increase from
1990-2000.
Our county leadership best slow
down and think this thing through,
before they get us into one big
mess.
The County does not have the in-
frastructure to handle these de% elop-
ments. It's going to cost you and me
to fix it, through increased taxes.
Write your County Commissioner
c/o Clerk of Court, Jefferson County
Courthouse, Monticello, FL, 32344,
and ask him to quit voting to amend
the Comp Plan, allowing farm )and
to become subdivisions.
Commissioners are: Gene Hall,
Junior Tuten, Felix Joyner, Danny
Monroe, and Jerry Sutphin.
Danny Monroe is the only Com-
missioner who has thus far voted
"No" to the proposed Comp Plan
amendments. He is the only Com-
missioner who has had the intestinal
fortitude to say "No."
According to the paper, the next
vote i's 7 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 15.
Sincerely,
Cheryl Searcy


Bush War Policy Lacking


(Continued From Page 4)
stained the honorable reputation of
our nation and thousands of dedi-
cated service members and provided
damning propaganda for all Amer-
ica haters.
It is encouraging to hear the Iraq
leadership predict that their military
and police forces will be trained up
by the end of 2006 to assume the
role of protecting their own country.
Unfortunately, I remember another
well trained and supplied military
force in South Vietnam that was
given a similar role when the U.S.
military departed.
We can not overlook the distinct
possibility of a future civil war in
Iraq between the major ethnic fac-
tions. Iraq is in a rough neighbor-
hood with the dictatorships of Syria
and Iran on either side of its board-
ers. The very last thing that these
two countries want is a nation of self
governing people in their midst.
It is easy to see, therefore, why
they are desperate to do everything
that they can to support the foreign-


terrorist insurgents infiltrating into
Iraq to fight our forces.
We lost the war in Vietnam be-
cause we realized too late the abso-
lute necessity to win over the villag-
ers that were essential to the Viet
Cong for both physical and political
support.
Ultimately, if President Bush or
his successor do not have as a major
part of their plan the essentials to
win over the hearts and minds of the
Iraq people, we are once again look-
ing at another long and protracted
conflict.
Unlike Vietnam, however, the
service men and women and the
families of those who have made the
supreme sacrifice in this war, can
find comfort in the knowledge that
their service to rid a tyrant and es-
tablish freedom is indeed among the
most noblest of causes.

Army Lt. Colonel and a former

Advertiser Writes That He


Told Truth, Slandered No One


Dear Editor:
1;i response to Mr. Carlton Jack-
son:
My ad was not an attack on any-
one. I only stated the series of cir-
cumstances that motivated me to
spend nearly $800 on a full page ad.
I, too, anr a conservative person. I
can assure you I have better things
to do with my resources than to
launch scurrilous attacks against
people I do not know.
I would suggest that you ask Mr.
Tuten yourself, what the truth is. If
that does not suffice, my wife and I
would be more than happy to take a
polygraph.
:, If I'-have slandered'afiyone, then I
should be sued. We will then,allow
the accountants and lawyers to sort
things out. If comparisons made


with what has happened in south
Florida, and is happening in Jeffer-
. son County, make certain people un-
comfortable, then that is a good
thing, as arrogance unchecked is
like a cancer that only metastasizes.
When Mr. Tuten shook my hand,
he only insulted my intelligence.
This one unnecessary act motivated
me to drive 4000 miles, miss work,
sleep in hotel rooms (as I no longer
have a house) and challenge directly
the ethics of the County Commis-
sion.
I spoke for nearly an hour with
Mr. Tuten on the phone, months be-
fore I. ran thead,, and told him ex-
actly what i etendedtpAp,,as Ialso
did with Mr. Joyner and Mr. Sut-
phin.
I found all three to be likable peo-


Ritalin May Harm Children


(Continued From Page 4)
Instead, Baughman charges,
ADHD was literally invented by the
American Psychiatric Association
(APA).
The explosion of new ADHD
cases in the 1990s, which continues
today, can be traced directly to a
1991 change in eligibility for federal
education grants allowing schools to
.be paid $400 in annual grants for
each child diagnosed with ADHD,
after classifying it as a handicap.
Ritalin is known to cause cardiac
arrhythmia, tachycardia and hyper-
tension. Research has proven that
Ritalin can interfere with body phos-
pholipid chemistry (body fat), caus-
ing the accumulation of abnormal
membranes visible with an elec-
tronic microscope.
Ritalin is early training to intro-
duce children to drug abuse.
Today, a black market for obtain-.
ing Ritalin without a prescription
has developed on some college cam-
puses, where some students actually
*


crush the pills and snort them like
cocaine.
In fact, research has shown that
children on Ritalin are three times
more likely to develop a taste for
cocaine.
Yet, with the money pouring into
school coffers, education officials,
acting like local street pushers, keep
forcing it on unsuspecting, worried
parents and their innocent children.
Ritalin: it will stunt your child's
growth; shrink their brain;, cause
violent mood swings and cause ad-
diction, just to treat a disease that
doesn't exist. And Americans won-
der what's wrong with public educa-.
tion.


ple. Under different circumstances, I-
would enjoy Mr. Tuten's friendship.
But history is filled with likable
people who are willing to open the
gates.
The Vichy government welcomed
the Nazis for a little extra wine and
cheese.
After the Civil War, certain mem-
bers of the community were more
than happy to tell the carpetbaggers
who had what and where it could be
found, for their handful of silver.
I accuse no one of being bad, only
weak and short sighted.
When Mr. Tuten stated that the
Department of Environmental .Prb-
"tectiohi would never allow any prro-
ject that is detrimental to the health
and safety of a community, it left
me confused.
I wasn't quite sure if he insulted
his intelligence, or mine. One of
our patients is an avid fisherman,
and when he noticed his fingertips
were numb, he was told by his doc-
tor that he had mercury poisoning.
It's alright to go fishing, just don't
eat'the fish.
This simple statement emphasizes
why Jefferson County is so vulner-
able.
An unsophisticated, yet apparently
greedy local' government, and a
trusting Christian oriented commu-
nity that assumes its members will
do the right thing, is a developer's
paradise.
Unfortunately, I see that Christian
ethic being replaced with something
I am very familiar with, an ethic of
greed, intimidation, and fear.

IF I ONLY KNEW
If I only knew that the last minutes
of Oct. 31, 1989 were going to be
our last minutes together, I would,
have stayed longer, and talked about
what was on our minds, instead of
thinking "I'll do it tomorrow."
If I only knew that would be my
-last time to. see that big warm smile
on your face, I would have given
you the biggest hug ever.
If I only knew that was going to
be, our last time talking about the
goodness of the Lord, through the
good and bad times, I'd have loved
to have had that day video taped.
If I only knew it would be the last
time I would have taken an extra
minute to stop and say "I love you,"
instead of assuming you knew that I
do..
To those that can read this memo-
rial to my grandmother, take my ad-
vice. Today might be your last
chance to get something;right with a
loved one.
Be sure to let them know that you
love them and don't assume they do.
Don't wait for tomorrow to do

THE LADY OF MY LIFE
What a joyful day when I was
born to a wonderful lady, my friend,
my mother Alberta Howard Cuyler.
We always feel like telling some-
one we love them or giving them a
needed hug or,a kiss, or even a spare
minute to stop and say "I love you."
Those of you that have this oppor-
tunity and think "I'll do it
tomorrow," please take the time, and
don't put it off, for the next minute
is not promised to us.
Mother, you have left this earthly
world to go home to your heavenly
home with God.
I'm living to be able to see your
face again, your big warm smile.
Rest on, my mother and take your
rest.
I love you, but God knew what
was best. .

Youth Soccer Program



Registration Saturday


FRAN HUNT
. taff Writer

Coordinator Phil Barker will be-
gin his eighth year with the Youth
Soccer Program, Saturday morn-
"ings at the Recreation Park.
He is presently seeking parents to
serve as volunteers along the side-
lines while he serves as the teacher
;.and referee of the games.
He added that parent volunteers
have often worked with some of
.'the teams after school to further in-
struct children in the sport
, The program is for any students
currently in K-5 through eighth
grades, and soccer sign up will be
conducted 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saur-
day, Dec. 3, at the Recreation
Park.
The sign-up fee is $15 and in-
cludes a pair of shin-guards and a
soccer T-shirt for the child to keep.
Last year, there were 110 children
in the program and Barker expects
to have another season at least as
successful as that of last year.
Jan. 7 officially kicks off the pro-
.gram.
Teams consist of children in
grades K-5, through 8.
Rules of play include:
*Shin-guards are mandatory for


all players, and long socks such as
tube socks are recommended to
help hold the shin-guards in place.
*Games are played during sprin-
kling rain, and heavy rain-outs will
not be made up.
*A player shall not kick, spit,
strike or trip an opponent in such a
manner as to cause a fall or loss of
balance.
*No high kicks are allowed near
other players (A kick in which the
player's foot rises above the waist).
The rule of thumb is, any ball
even with or above the shoulders,
players is headed.
*A player may not deliberately
carry, handle or strike the ball with
their arms or hands, the only excep-
tion is the goalkeeper and only
within their own penalty area.
*The penalty for fouls is a free
kick for the other team. Any player
who commits a serious foul or uses
abusive language will be disquali-
fied for the remainder of the game.
* The modified rules that may be
used include the K-5 through third
grade teams not using the goal-
keepers position.
*Officially, there are 11 positions
on each side. ,
Most teams will have 13-15 play-
ers on each team, however, about
seven players at a time will be


two points.
Elizabeth Riley rebounded well
in the first half.
When the Lady Warriors faced
Brookwood, ACA won 24-8.
Finlayson related that the Lady
Warriors took off like a blue streak
from the beginning and by the half,
were leading 18-0. "They just
coasted from there," said
Finlayson.
"They played much better and
were more relaxed and confident,"
said Finlayson. "They -went out
there and played with the Warriors
spirit."
Copeland and Sorensen each
scored eight points; Nikki Hamm-
rick, four points; and Brasington
and Plummer each scored two
points.

tween players every 4-5 minutes.

time.

team photographs.

gram. The breakdown follows;

first grades; teams three and four
are second and third grades; teams
five and six are fourth and fifth
grades; teams seven and eight are

Each match will be 50 minutes
and matches will be played at 9
a.m., 10 a.m., 11 a.m. or 12 p.m.

Humane Society Trail Ride,


Fun Day Draws 100 Patrons


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

The Humane Society's Trail Ride
arid Family Fun Day, saw some
100 people participate in the as-
sorted events.
. Vice-president Martha Jean Mar-
tifn said while coordinators thought
the:, :might break even, a profit
was realized, though at press time
the tally was not finalized.


"Most of the people .who came
out didn't participate in the trail
ride, but those who did said it was
the nicest trail ride that they had
been on in a long time," said Mar-
tin.

She added that people who came
to buy raffle tickets for the horses,
when they saw the menu and
smelled the aroma of the food,
stayed on for lunch.
The menu included Al's Gourmet


grilled chicken and Boston Butt
Barbecue pork sandwiches, along
with baked beans, coleslaw, Dutch
oven cobbler, sweet potato pie and
either a canned drink or bottled wa-
ter.
The winner of the seven year-old
mare was Della Purkey and the
winners of the eight to nine month
old miniature horse were Wendy
and Ken Leeman.
"She (Purkey) was so happy and
so surprised, all she could do was
cry," said Martin. "And Wendy
didn't even know that her husband
bought tickets, hoping to win the
animal for their three sons. Both
the horses went to really good
homes," Martin said.
"I just couldn't believe it when
they called my name," said Purkey.
"I only bought $20 worth of tickets
and there were some people who
bought $100 w orth, so I really did-
n't expect to win."
Activities also included a pony
ride, hay ride, horseshoes, egg and
spoon races on horseback, .horse-
back musical buckets, croquet, bad-
minton. sing-a-longs and contests
for the coolest horse, and best
turned out.

over time. Hoodiacol consist of 3 key
ingredients incorporated into rice
bran oil with natural flavorings to
give it a palpable taste. In addition t&'
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.

said art students each submitted
their original 8/2 x 11 inch color
drawings designed with crayons, of
either dogs, cats, puppies or kittens.
That art work was locally judged
and the top 12 entries were used as
art work in the 2006 Humane Soci-
ety note cards.
The note cards are blank on the
inside so they can be used for all
occasions and on the back is the
name of the artist whose art is de-
picted on the card.
The cards are available at the Hu-
mane Society Shelter Office or in-
terested purchasers can call Martin
at 997-6229. They are also avail-
able during adoption booths and
the Home Town Get Downs adop-
tion booths.
There are 12 cards in each pack,
one of each of the winning art
works and the cost is $8.
