Rezoning


State Must

Still Review

LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

DeL.ch'e strong opposition from
area residents, the Co:'r.-. Commis-
sion on T-iursida night approved a
Comprehensive Plan amendment re-
zoning 377 acres near the Wau-
keenah community.
The action, which followed the
Planning Commission's recommen-
dation, rezones a 98-acre parcel
zoned mixed-use/suburban residen-
tial and a second 110-acre parcel
zoned agriculture-3 to residential-1.
The two adjoining parcels are south
of US 27 and east of CR-259.
Commissioners limited develop-
ment of the site to a maximum of
204 houses and tied the restriction to
the property by -ordinance and by
covenant.
The proposed amendment now
goes to the Department of Commu-
nity Affairs (DCA) for state review
and approval.
Although ostensibly a land-use
change and not a development site
review per se, much of Thursday
evening's discussion centered on the
upscale subdivision that Lifestyles
Land Development LLC proposes to
put on the combined properties.
Developer Dale Peterson painted a
picture of an idyllic gated commu-
nity, consisting of $300,000 to
$500,000 homes on minimum one-
acre hill lots overlooking the two or
three lakes on the property.
He said considerations of aesthet-
ics had decided him against cluster-
ing or maximum development of the
property, which he called "one of
the most beautiful pieces of land I've
seen in some time."
He said his expressed willing-
ness to limit the number of houses
to 204 -- as opposed to the 298 al-
lowed by the existing zoning -- was
in the interest of flexibility and
wanting to be a good neighbor.
SThe question of exactly how many
h('usirn,! units the present zoning al-
lows remains a point of contention


between the developer and county
officials. (See related story).
Opponents questioned how the
204-house limitation would be en-
forced, given that the restriction
would not be listed on the Future
Land Use Map and institutional
memory would eventually give way
with the replacement of officials on
-the different boards.
More immediate, opponents wor-
ried about the development's impact
on adjacent properties, the environ-
ment and the county's rural charac-
ter and quality-of-life in general.
"You're opening the floodgates of
a sleepy community to be a develop-
ers' paradise," was common theme
heard.
Other views expressed ranged
from a desire to preserve the
county's rural character to concerns
about septic-tank runoff, to potential
contamination of the aquifer, to the
precedent-setting and ripple effect
of the alleged "ad-hoc spot-zoning'.
"Our concern is with the general
trend this is setting and the criteria
that the board is using to make these
decisions," said Susan Anderson,
one of 16 people who spoke out
against the rezoning.
She called it a disservice to the
community "to put another Killearn
in Waukeenah", adding that Florida
was losing its agricultural land
faster than any other state in the na-
tion.
Tom LaMotte, among several
others, called for closer adherence to
the Comprehensive Plan,
"We still have so much available
land for development that's in the
right zoning," LaMotte said. "Why
not develop that land first?"
"This is too much, too fast," said
Waukeenah resident Debbie Craig.
"I ask you to pause. My community
will be tripled. Is this the vision you
want for Jefferson County.
"It's scary to me when I look at
five people who are going to change
the life of Jefferson County so dras-
tically."
Speaking as a citizen, Planning
Commission Chairman Bill Tellef-
sen decried the repeated departures
from the direction set by the Com-
prehensive Plan.
"If we're going to constantly-

Joyner Offers Compromise To


Make Rezoning More Palatable


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

It's far from a done deal, but Com-
missioner Skeet Joyner thinks he
knows a way to satisfy both propo-
nents and opponents of the Wau-
keenah property rezoning.
At the least, Joyner thinks he
knows a way to mitigate the worst
effects of the development.
That is, assuming that the De-
partment of Community Affairs
(DCA) goes along with the county's
rezoning of the 377-acre property
and Joyner is then able to convince
his fellow commissioners and the
developer to go along with his idea.
Joyner's plan, presented briefly at
the conclusion of Thursday's. hear-
ing as his rationale for supporting
the rezoning, essentially calls for the
developer to develop 200 of the 377
acres and dedicate the other 177 to ,a
conservation easement.
"To make a Comprehensive Plan
amendment, there needs to be a
compelling reason," Joyner said, re-
ferring to a statement made earlier
in the meeting. "I'll show you my


compelling reason."
That compelling reason, he said,
was that growth and development
were inevitable, and it behooved


county officials to manage the
growth as best as they could.
"Folks, this developer is not going
to go away," Joyner said. "That


land's going to be developed one
way or the other. There's too much
money to be made here.

The county now has an animal
control program, complete with
three certified animal control offi-
cers.
Commissioners adopted the re-
vised Dangerous Animal Control
Ordinance last Thursday, following
a brief public hearing.
At the same time, commissioners
recognized the three newly-certified
animal control officers who will be
enforcing the ordinance.
The three are Solid Waste Depart-
ment Director Beth Thorne and em-
ployees Lamar Poppell and Vince
Little.


Commissioner Skeet Joyner pre-
sented the three with their certifica-
tions in a brief ceremony at the start
of Thursday's meeting. Joyner joked
that the three would have to share a
badge until more badges were forth-
coming.

Citizens Triggered |
Program Revisions @

The three Solid Waste Department
employees attended a total of 56
hours of schooling to acquire the
animal control certification, which is
required by law. One of the classes
dealt with the chemical immobiliza-
tion of animals.
The revised animal control ordi-
nance adopted by commission


Thursday remains complaint driven.
Meaning that a citizen must file a
complaint of a dangerous animal to
trigger the procedure.
The Sheriffs Department then will
investigate the reported incident and
determine if the animal is indeed
dangerous.
If the responding deputy deter-
mines that the animal is dangerous,
the officer will call Thorne at the
Solid Waste Department.
Thorne then will dispatch one of
the two animal control officers to
capture the animal and take it a fa-
cility where it will be held until its
fate is decided.
The ordinance does not address
nuisance animals.
The beefed-up animal control pro-


gram, along with the revised ordi-
nance, resulted from citizen
activism.
Particularly instrumental in the ef-
fort to strengthen the program were
two citizens group that did much of
the legwork, in terms of researching
and recommending possible solu-
tions to the problem.

A Visit From


The ChristChild
Twas the morning of Christmas, when all through the house
All the family was frantic, including my spouse;
For each one of them had one thing only in mind,
To examine the presents St. Nick left behind.

The boxes and %wrapping and ribbons and tos s
Were strewn on the floor, and the volume of noise
Increased as Our children began a big fight
'Over who got the video games. who got the bike., "

I looked at mN watch and I said, slightly nervous,'
"Let's get readN for church, so we don't miss the service.;
The children protested, "We don't want to pray:
.. \Ve just got our presents, and vant to plaN!" ... .

It dawned on me then that we had gone astray,
In confusing the purpose of this special day;
Our presents were many and very high-priced
But something %was missing--that something was Christ!
I said, "Put the gifts down and let's gather together,
And I'll tell you a tale of the greatest gift ever.

A Savior. was promised when Adam first sinned i
And the hopes of'the world upon Jesus were pinned.
Abraham begat Isaac,,who Jacob begat,'
And through David the line went to Joseph, whereat
This carpenter married a maiden with child,
Who yet-was a virgin, in no way defiled.

"Saying,'Hail, full of Grace, 'an archangel appeared
;1 To Mary the Blessed. ainong women revered:
The Lord willed she would bear (through the Spirit) a Son.
Said Mary to Gabriel. God's will be done.'

"Now Caesar commanded a tax.\ would be paid,
And all would go home while the census:was made;
Thus Joseph and Mary did leave Galilee
For the city of David to paN this new fee.

"Mary's time had arrived, but he inn had no room,.
So she laid in a manger the fruit of her womb;
And both Joseph and Mar: admired as he napped
The Light of the World in His swaddling clothes wrapped.

"Three wise men from the East had come looking for news
Of the birth of the Savior, the King of the Jews;
The carried great gifts as the\ followved a star -
Gold, frankincense, myrrh, which they'd brought from afar.

"As the shepherds watched over their flocks on that night,
The glory of God shone upon them quite bright,
And an angel explained the intent of the birth, :
Saying, 'Glory to God and his peace to the earth.,.

For this was the Messiah whom prophets foretold,
A good Shepherd to bring His sheep back to the. fold;
He wvas God become man, He would die on the cross,
He would rise from the dead to restore Adam's loss.

"Santa Claus, Christmas presents, a brightly lit pine,
Candy canes and spiced eggnog are all very fine;
Let's have fun celebrating, but leave hot a doubt
That Christ is what Christmas is really about'" '

The children right then put an end to the noise,
They dressed quickly for church, put aside all their toys;
For they knew Jesus loved them and said they were glad
That He'd died for their sins, and to save their dear iad;

It helps me and my family get
through a difficult time.
From the beginning I received
personal calls at my home and food

*After the funeral, the ladies of the
Monticello Woman's Club alone
with the ladies of the Garden Club

My family members were
amazed as they had not seen such a
display of genuine southern hospi-

One grown grandson wanted me
to get the recipe for a delicious
chicken casserole that had been,
served.
One resident told me that as the
procession neared the cemetery a
pedestrian paused to give a salute
as it went by.
'I hope we never lose the wonder-

Humane Society members re---
cently received an update on the
number of animals adopted during
the first 10 months of the year.
Of 334 animals coming to the
shelter, 230 have been adopted
into loving homes.
In a detailed breakdown, Kennel
Operations Director Tina Ames
said, from Jan. 1, 2005 to Oct. 31,
2005, 178 canines were brought to
the shelter.
Of those, 114 canines were
adopted, and 45 were euthanized,
either for extreme illness, being
overly aggressive, or due to over
crowding at the shelter, and five
went to owners reclaiming them.
For felines, 156 came to the shel-
ter during the same time frame.
Adopted cats numbered 106; 23
were euthanized either due to ill-
ness or being feral; one escaped,
and 13 went to humane release, as
barn cats.
President Caroline Carswell
praised the efforts of volunteers
and for the way that they had built
up the number of adoptions.
"You al have done such a won-
derful job. These animals are now
in loving homes and the hard work
of our volunteers has done that."
She added that the goal for next

Humane Society Adoption

Booth Successful Event


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer
The recent Humane Society adop-._
tion booth hosted at Petsmart, in
Tallahassee, was a success with
volunteers helping to find new
homes for animals.
Four dogs and two cats were
adopted.
While the adoption booth was in


progress, volunteers took pictures
of owners and their pets. The
package included two pictures with
either an ornament or frame for
each.
The cost for the photos was $10,
$5 of which was donated to the Hu-
mane Society by Petsmart, who
provided the film and camera for
the task.
Approximately 50 owners and
families brought their furry friends


to pose with Santa.
Some took a family photo with
Santa and their pets, and other took
photos with just their pet and Santa.
Most of the animals coming
through were dogs. of every de-
scription, from palm size to those
large enough to be saddled.
A few cats were also photo-
graphed with Santa.
The most unique pets included a
little girl with her baby potbelly pig


named Piglett and a woman with
her pet mouse, Walter.
A variety of volunteers played
the part of the jolly fellow through-
out the day, while others worked in
the adoption both.
She thanked all the volunteers,
including the Santas: Buddy John-
son, Guery Watson, Matthew Padg-
ett..
Others to be thanked included
Gulf 104 for conducting public
service announcements throughout
the week, Mary Helen Ringe, Jud-
son Freeman, Kelly Freeman,
Cheryl Bautista, Martha Jean Mar-
tin, Karen Moore, and Alfa Hunt.,

Medicine

Linked
To Deaths
DEBBIE SNAPP
Staff Writer
The Healthy Start Coalition of--
Jefferson, Madison and Taylor-
Counties, Inc. report cold medi-
cines are linked to infant deaths in
a recent study released from the
Montgomery County Coroner's Of-
fice in Ohio.
At a routine meeting last year, the
Coroner's Office staff decided to
further investigate the deaths of in-
fants who died for no obvious rea-
son.
Most of these deaths had been at-
tributed to Sudden Infant Death
Syndrome (SID.)-
The office recently acquired new,
highly sophisticated equipment
able to test for a variety of sub-
stances commonly found in over-
the-counter cold medicines.
Over an eight month period, the
study found high levels of cold
medications in 10 children, 12
months and under.
The coroner believes the babies
died because parents and caregivers
simply were not paying attention to
the age ranges for which the medi- -
cations were intended.
The coroner went on further to
state,."There is a huge difference in
pediatric and infant dosage.
"People are not reading the
labels. They are picking up over-
the-counter medications for a two
year old, and they are giving it to
an infant."
Part of the problem could be in
the. stores. All the medications are
grouped together on the shelf.
Parents and caregivers need to'
consult with the pharmacist right
then to be sure they have the right
produce and dosage for their infant.

Sheriff Says Holiday Drivers


Need To Be More Cautious


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

With more motorists on the roads-
at holiday time, accidents are more
likely to occur, observed Sheriff
David Hobbs.
"What I suspect happens,"
Hobbs said, "is that many times,
people are out on the roads, behind-


the wheel of an automobile and
their minds are on everything else
but driving.
"They talk on the phone, or tend
to things going on inside the vehi-
cle.
"That automobile can be a big
killing machine, if people behind
the wheel are not in control. I've
seen it a million times.
"A trooper will be on the side the


vember, typically bring
ers out.
"They're thinking ab(
loose ends for business
they're doing last minut
or thinking about what


road, lights flashing, motioning for -or whom, or which de
people to slow down and they are next on their list, eve:

Hobbs. "There is a lot of

and traffic from 1-10 was being re-
routed through Monticello for sev-
eral hours, Hobbs added.
FHP Trooper Thomas Roderick
reported that on Thursday at 1:30
p.m. on 1-10, Amanda Carter, 21,
of Auburndale, was driving her
2001 Dodge 4-door west, crossed
over the median into the eastbound
lanes, and was struck by a 1997
Freightliner semi-truck being
driven by Kenneth Weston, 48, of
Irving, TX.
Her vehicle was knocked off of
the roadway onto the south side of
I-10, struck a large tree and burst
into flames.
The crash resulted in Carter sus-


training critical injuries and Weston
receiving serious injuries. Both
were transported to Tallahassee
Memorial.
"A lot of people who were ap-
proaching the traffic which was
backed up for miles due to the
crash, didn't have their minds on-
the roads, causing minor accidents,;
and were lucky no one was hurt,"
said Hobbs.
"So every time you get behind:
the wheel, especially around the:
holidays, the two things to keep in:
mind are always drive defensively'
and watch out for the other guy be-
cause they may not be watching out-
for you."
