RAY CICHON .
Managing Editor

Hattie Ruth Jordan, instruc-
tional assistant at Howard
Middle School, was named
District Employee of the Year,
Wednesday.
Jordan was surprised in her
classroom when Superinten-
dent Phil Baker and a delega-
tion from the District Office
showed up and presented her
with a bouquet of roses of
mixed colors, balloons and a
plaque of appreciation.


Jordan was also named Dis-
trict Employee of the Year in
1988.
Among her job responsibili-
ties are assisting teachers in
preparing materials for instruc-
tional activities, leading small
group activities, assisting the
teacher in preparing for chang-
ing curriculum to meet the
needs of students, and encour-
aging students to do their best
work.
She has been employed by
the District for 25 years, all of
which were at Howard Middle
School.


Principal Juliette Jackson
said of Jordan: "She is a val-
ued member of the staff. Her
positive attitude and love of
children is reflected in their
work.
"She demonstrates the high-
est level of professional com-
mitment and competency in
her work with her.students and
colleagues.
"To carry our her profes-
sional responsibilities, she
gives generously of her time,
and often her works extend be-
yond the school day."

The county's prospects for
construction of an emergency
operations center (EOC) im-
proved recently with the gov-
ernor's announcement that he
is seeking $70 million to
strengthen EOCs across the
state.
The governor's announce-
ment came in the wake of state
officials finding that 22 of
Florida's 67 counties have in-
adequate EOCs.
Meaning that the buildings
that house Emergency Man-
agement (EM) operations in
these 22 counties are incapable
of withstanding a hurricane
with top winds of 111 miles
per hour or greater.


Jefferson County, as it hap.-
pens, is one of the 22 counties
with inadequate EOCs. Which
bodes well for the county's
long-standing efforts to secure
state funding for construction
of a new emergency operations
center at the industrial park.
If the Legislature were to ap-
prove the governor's proposal
(and hurricane preparedness is
supposedly a hot topic on leg-
islators' agenda this year, given
the devastation that storms
caused the last two years), it
would guarantee this county
$750,000, according to Dick
Bailar, spokesman for the Jef-
ferson Legislative Committee.
As Bailar and EM Director
Carol Ellerbe explained it, the
$750,000 wouldn't provide the
county with the all-
encompassing public safety


complex that county officials
want to build, but it would go
a long ways towards accom-
plishing the goal.
That goal, which county offi-
cials have been pursuing for at
least three years now, is to
consolidate all emergency re-
sponse services at one location
near the jail.
That means constructing a
building capable of housing
the fire and ambulances
services, as well as the EM
operation and radio
dispatching.
Presently, the EM operation
is housed in the Dunn building
on North Jefferson Street; Fire
Rescue is located on US High-
way 19 South; and radio dis-
patching is situated at the jail
in the industrial park.
As envisioned, the public
safety complex would be
10,000 sq. feet and cost ap-
proximately $2 million.
The $750,000 would allow

"What started as a simple
meeting to talk about a few ba-
sic concerns has morphed into
a laborious and very complex
task that can ultimately render
huge dividends to the county
and its residents."
These words of Dick Bailar,
chairman of the Jefferson
County Utility Development
Committee (UDC), accurately
summarize the group's first-
year evolution.
Indeed, in the year since the
... .-, UDC formed in February 2005
(as a result of a group of citi-
zens coming together to dis-
cuss environmental and eco-


nomic development concerns
specific to Lloyd), the commit-
tee has been able to secure of-
ficial status and more than
$45,000 in funding.
Group Secures.I.
Over $45,000 i
"One of our committee's first
acts was to secure an interlocal
agreement between the county
and the city authorizing the
UDC to act on their behalf in
gathering data, evaluating
needs and preparing prelimi-
nary proposals relative to wa-
ter treatment," Bailar relates.
He adds that both city and
county governing boards must
approve all UDC decisions re-
garding funding, systems, de-


velopmental phases and con-
struction, among other things.
The group's next major ac-
complishment was to secure a
free feasibility study by the
Florida Rural Water Associa-
tion, valued at approximately
$30,000.
"This will be a comprehen-
sive study that will basically
determine the degree to which
any system can succeed in the
county," Bailar says. "The
study will indicate growth pat-
terns, what service areas might
be phased in, and what costs
and revenues can reasonably
be expected. The report is
scheduled to be completed by
early March."

56th Waterme on Fest val To See

Return Of Rodeo & Stree Dance


RAY CICHON
Managing Editor

The Street Dance and Ro-
deo will return to the 56th Wa-
termelon Festival, June 1-17.
To back up, the Street Dance
was omitted last year, with a
sock hop held in the JCHS
gym taking its place.
By popular demand, the Fes-
tival Committee reinstated the
Street Dance, with 19 South as
the band.


Confusion over the cost of
liability insurance caused the
Rodeo to be canceled last year.
This year the Festival Com-
mittee has agreed to hold fund-
raisers and seek sponsors to
help offset the cost of the in-
surance.
Event Chair Charlie Driver
vowed, Monday, to do his best
to make the Rodeo a reality
this year.
Opening the festival on June
1 will be the Kickoff Dinner,
followed by the bed race.


After the race, Jimmy Gillis,
a one man band, will perform
in the Opera House Garden for
listening and dancing pleasure.
In other festival news, Chair
Mary Frances Drawdy told the
committee that Co-Chair
Karina Walton has resigned
and Nicole Honcell volun-
teered to fill the vacancy.
Queen Pageant Co-chairs
Lindsey Taylor and Roslyn
Bass have decided not to have
an opening number this year.

for construction of only the ba-
sic EOC building, or the com-
mand center for emergency
response in the eventuality of a
major catastrophic event,
whether natural or manmade.
Bailar said his committee is
working hard to convince leg-
islators to approve the gover-
nor's proposal, at the same
time that the committee is pur-
suing other possible sources of
funding,
"We're trying to cobble to-
gether other funding from the
Department of Community Af-
fairs and FEMA," Bailar said,
adding that if the group is suc-
cessful in these endeavors, it
will allow for construction of
the full complex.


Employee

Cumell Henry, Dean of Stu-
dents said of Jordan: "She is
very cooperative and works
well with both staff and stu-
dents.
"She provides invaluable
help for teachers in their class-
rooms and students are very
responsive to her.
"Ms. Jordan serves in several
capacities at HMS. She works
closely with the athletic pro-
gram, helping the girl's head
coach with basketball and soft-
ball.
"She doesn't know what the
word 'no' means and is often
here after hours waiting for
parents to pick up their stu-
dents. She has a superior work
ethic and work record."
Jim Norton, former principal
of HMS said of Jordan: "When
I was principal of HMS, Ms.
Jordan was always a dedicated


y Center
But even if the latter pursuits
fail, Bailar said approval of the
governor's proposal is critical
to allow for construction of the
basic unit,, which can later be
augmented.
"The first thing that the leg-
islative committee is doing is
trying to get the Hurricane Pre-
paredness Act passed," Bailar
said. "The big thing is that
there is a lot of concern about
hurricane preparedness at pre-
sent. We think that the Legis-
lature will be sensitive to this.
It's not a just a rural issue ei-
ther. It's something that affects
the big counties too."
"It's not a slam dunk," Bailar
added. "But we feel pretty
good about getting the
funding."

"She always accepted her as-
signments graciously and per-
formed her job duties
professionally, with the excel-
lence and effectiveness that
were most beneficial to stu-
dents.
"She exemplified eagerness,
enthusiasm, and sincerity in
whatever event she was a part
of, whether in the classroom,
or extracurricular.
"She maintained outstanding
rapport with students and par-
ents, and was concerned about
the success of all the children
and was willing to help them
in accomplishing their educa-
tional achievements.
"She displayed a pleasing
personality and positive de-
meanor at all times, which was
an inspiration to everyone at
the school."

Why I am a


Republican
I have been a Republican for well over 40 years. I
first became aware of national politics in the sixties
in college. When I arrived there, Students for a
Democratic Society and other folks from the radical
left were on campus in force. I discovered that I had
an immediate dislike for, and conflict with, them and
their politics. There were also some conservative
groups on campus where I could and did discuss
ideas. That kind of free and open discussion has
continued through my life.
With some individual exceptions, I find that a
political discussion with a member of the left usually
ends with me listening to a raised voice, an ad
hominem attack or a stony silence. When I disagree
with moderate and conservative folks, we normally
argue or agree to disagree and then part civilly.
Personally, I am as troubled by the far right as by the
far left. I do not like some of the things I see going on
in my party. Sometimes, people I consider friends tell
me that there are things wrong with the Republican
Party. My answer is that to fix something you need to
get inside it. I have.
Today America is involved in a life and death
struggle with extremist Islamic terrorist. Of the
presidents I have known since the first Kennedy
assassination, the Republican presidents have made
me feel more secure.

positive attitude that some de-
gree of system will ultimately
be found feasible", Bailar says
the UDC has received commit-
ment from the Department of
Environmental Protection for a
1.95 percent loan to cover the
expense of a pre-construction
engineering study.
"Such an in-depth study is re-
quired in order to determine
the scope of the project, spe-
cifically (insofar as) defining
routes, phases, environmental
concerns, treatment facilities,
etc.," Bailar explains. "Only
after such an extensive study
has been done can the UDC
approach city and county offi-
cials with any action proposals
and ultimately seek state and
federal construction funding."
Additionally, the group has
secured, to one degree or an-
other, the volunteer services of
several consultants. These ex-
perts are Mike Boeke, an engi-
neer with the firm that
designed the technical aspects
of the Jefferson Community
Water System; Bruce Ballister,
a planner with the Apalachee
Regional Planning Agency
who is helping the group seek
development grants; Lynne
Putnarm, a county resident and
managing engineer of Talla-
hassee's water system; and
David Still, with the Suwannee


River Water Management Dis-
trict.
"The UDC soon learned that
a comprehensive system of
any magnitude has to be done
in phases, both in planning and
development," Bailar says.
"There are so many complex
options to be considered be-
fore even the most primary de-
cisions can be made that the
UDC reached out for expert
assistance."
Ballister, for example, man-
aged to obtain a $15,000 grant
from the Department of Com-
munity Affairs to conduct a
study for a required Urban
Service Area and modifica-
tions to the county's Compre-
hensive Land Use Plan.
"This study will involve
workshops with the Planning
Commission and numerous
public hearings to gain citizens
input," Bailar says. "Addi-
tional funds have been secured
through the State Growth
Management Bill that man-
dates the study and the amend-
ment of the city and county
comp plans with regards to
economic development, which
is a vital concern of the UDC."
The UDC meets the first Fri-
day of each month at the Lloyd
Truck Stop near the intersec-
tion of 1-10 and State Road 59.
The public is invited to attend.

Funds in Governor's

Proposed Budget


Under the proposed 2006-
2007 state budget announced
Feb. 1 by Gov. Jeb Bush, com-.
munity colleges, including
North Florida Community Col-
lege stand to gain significantly.
Morris G. Steen, Jr. Presi-
dent of NFCC said: "We ap-
preciate the Governoi's
support of the Flbrida commu-
:nity college systems.
"Gov. Bush recognizes the'
vale of community colleges
in educating and training Flor-
ida students."
Steen went on to say: "At
North Floiida Community Col-
lege, a budget increase of any
size translates into more pro-
grams and improved services
for the students and residents
of our area.
"With NFCC's four and one


half percent enrollment growth
last year, you can be assured
that we will put additional
funding to good use."
Under the Governor's
Budget, community colleges
would receive:
*$78 million operating in-
crease
*$3.8 million operating cost
of new facilities
*$14.4 million retirement
rate adjustment
*$22.2 million tuition and
fees
*$9.2 million targeted bac-
calaureate degrees
*$38 million to fund Dr.

The arrival of young Billy

_ Opinion & Comment


The Department of Veterans
Afailrs (VA) provides a vari-
ety of memorial benefits to
veterans, including burial
space, Presidential Memorial
Certificates, a burial flag and a
headstone or marker.
VA's National Cemetery
System (NCS) is building new
national cemeteries where the
need for burial space for veter-
ans is greatest and expanding
other cemeteries when
possible.
NCS recently opened two
new national cemeteries near
Pittsburgh and Detroit.
Currently, nine other new
national cemeteries are
planned or under construction
in Atlanta; Philadelphia; Mi-
ami; Jacksonville, Florida;
Sacramento, Calif.; Birming-
ham, Ala.; and Columbia, S.C.
Today, approximately 80
percent of all U.S. veterans
live within 75 miles of a na-
tional cemetery. These new
cemeteries will increase that to
89 percent.
The growing demand for na-
tional cemeteries is due to the
aging population of World
War II veterans. Nearly 1,800
veterans die each day, 1,100 of
whom are World War II veter-
ans.
VA also furnishes upon re-
quest, at no charge, a govern-
ment headstone or marker for
the grave of an eligible de-
ceased veteran at any cemetery
in the world.
These headstones are


shipped free of charge. Private
cemeteries may charge a fee
for setting the headstone or
marker. National cemeteries do
not.
VA provides Presidential
Memorial Certificates to the
next-of-kin of and loved ones
of deceased veterans. The gold
embossed certificates honor
the memory of honorably dis-
charged veterans. They are in-
scribed with the veteran's
name and bear the President's
signature.
VA provides a U.S. flag to
drape the casket of deceased
veterans that is presented to
the next-of-kin. For burials in
national cemeteries, NCS pro-
vides the burial flag.
If burial. is in a private ceme-
tery, a burial flag can be ob-
tairied at any VA Regional
Office or U.S. Post Office.
Funeral home directors can
help submit necessary applica-
tion forms to request burial in
a national cemetery, a burial
flag, a headstone or marker
and the memorial certificate.
VA offers grants to states to
build and equip state veterans
cemeteries. The state then op-
erates and maintains the ceme-
tery. State veterans cemeteries
have eligibility requirements
and provide benefits similar to
VA national cemeteries.
Any deceased veteran dis-
charged from the U.S. armed
forces under other than dishon-
orable conditions may be eligi-
ble for VA burial benefits.


Truth Takes Care

Of Itself In Debate


BY REX M. ROGERS
Columnist

To hear the proponents of
evolution tell it, anyone who
believes in some kind of Intel-
ligent Design, let alone the
creation account of the biblical
book of Genesis, must have
the worldview of a medieval
monk.

To hear I.D. or creation sup-
porters tell it, anyone who em-
braces evolution must be at
best an atheist. Whether in
Kansas or Pennsylvania, or in
innumerable hamlets through-
out, the country, science v. re-
ligion, or evolution v. I.D., the
debates are hotter than a newly
Formed earth.
Among the many interesting
things about this debate is that
both sides are talking past one
another. Real science does not
deal in First Causes. Its focus
on natural, and therefore ex-
plainable, phenomena means
science has no ability to assess,
for example, the human soul,
God, or meaning.
Science is a methodology for
evaluating the world our
senses can detect. Overly zeal-
ous proponents of evolution
forget this. They argue their


theory is unassailable and
clearly precludes a Creator.
This assumption of un-
impeachability is what should
most concern us.
Religion deals in the whole
of life. That's why theology
used to be called the "queen of
the sciences." God gave us rea-
soning capacity and commis-
sioned us to develop the world
and learn the rest of what we
could know. Religion informs
and comments on science, but
it is not science. Religious en-
thusiasts sometimes forget that
science occupies a legitimate
place in God's world.
I'm not a proponent of evolu-
tion. But I'm not afraid for
evolution, I.D., or creationism
to be taught in a public school
classroom. I'd contend that one
cannot be well educated with-
out knowing something about
all of these views, whatever
your conclusions about their
veracity.
In an open, unbiased investi-
gation, truth takes care of
itself. To science and religion
I'd say open the door.

nist in almost 100 newspapers

Science Challenges Mind


BY DENNIS FOGGY
Columnist

Often in life (and when writ--
ing a column) it is important to !
step back, take a deep breath
and relax. This is one of those
occasions when it seemed
more appropriate to lighten up
and take a look at less serious ,
and more captivating things.
By nature, we all have the.,
virtue of curiosity. I, for exam-
ple, have always been fasci-
nated by things of science and ,
the mind. I thought it would be
interesting, therefore, to write
about some things that I can't
quite "get my mind around" '*
and provide you with some in- '
teresting thoughts along the
way.


Let's start by taking outer
space as.an example. Sure, we
know about planets and stars
and other vast galaxies, but we
have only scratched the sur-
face of all that is out there. It
eems as though the more we
learn, the more we don't actu-
ally understand and we simply
generate more questions.
For humans to try and com-
prehend "endlessness" in the
universe is a sheer impossibil-
ity. We understand, measure
6nd quantify things within
their limits. Nothing goes on
for ever and we certainly think
that there "must be an end to
the universe out there some-
where." Yet science admits
that space could quite literally
be endless. I can't get that one
in my head at all!


Nearly as hard to grasp are
the multitude of numbers asso-
ciated with space. Since the es-
tablishment of the powerful
Hubble Space Telescope, sci-
entist have been able to see
deeper into space than ever be-
fore.
Today they speak of hun-
dreds of billions of other gal-
axies "out there." Hundreds of
billions! Our vast normal sized
Milky Way galaxy alone con-
tains countless trillions of stars
and who knows how many
planets.
If that tickles your mind a lit-
tle, then try on the speed of
light. As you may know, light
travels 186,355 miles a second
and is, therefore, a measure-
ment of distance and not
speed.


Protect Credit Cards

ing about your shopping habits,
could save you money and
protect you from theft.

Keep Account Information
Secure Do not give your
bank account or credit card
number to any caller who is
unknown to you especially if
the caller is trying to sell you
something or offers you a
prize.
It's important to protect your
credit card information when
shopping. The same holds true
for Internet or mail solicita-
tions.
Only give out your credit
card information if you initiate
the transaction and you are
comfortable that the company
you are dealing with is reputa-
ble.


See if you can comprehend
these numbers. A light ray
leaving the sun takes nearly
eight minutes to reach earth
traveling at 186,355 miles each
second. It would take a full
five hours and twenty minutes
for that same ray to reach
Pluto, the most distant planet
in our tiny solar system.
How about to the nearest star
to earth, (not including our
own sun "star")? That ray
would have to travel con-
stantly at 186,355 miles every
second for 4.3 years (referred
to as light years). How about
across the Milky Way galaxy?
Why that little ray of light
would travel for 100,000 light
years.

(See Science Page 5)


Be Sure Online Credit
Card Purchases Are Secure -
You should be comfortable
that the company you are deal-
ing with is reputable.
Look for an icon picture of a
padlock or a solid key at the
lower section of your browser
window to verify that your
personal information is being
protected.
Trust Your Merchant Be
cautious about doing business
on the spot with somebody
who calls you without a refer-
ence.
Do Not Disclose Personal
Information Do not put your
address, telephone number or
other information that is not on
your credit card on the credit
card receipt.

To reach the most distant
identified object thus far in the
universe, pack your bags, be-
cause that same little light ray
would have to travel at its
breakneck speed for a constant
eighteen billion years!! Can
you comprehend traveling
constantly at 186,355 miles per
second for eighteen billion
years?
Now understanding that sci-
entist date our young sun to be
only 4.5 billion years old, then
the very first rays leaving our
sun are only 4.3 billion light
years away. Not even a fifth of
the way to that most distant
identifiable object in the uni-
verse! So if we can see that
most distant object, then it has
to be at least eighteen billion
years old for its light to have


reached earth. Is your mind
"shot" yet?
How about some incompre-
hensible sizes? Our little sun is
a medium sized yellow star. It
is one hundred times the size
of our earth. That means that
you could fit 1.1 million earths
inside the sun or 930 giant
planets like Jupiter. Now' try to
comprehend giant red stars
that are over one hundred
-times the size of our sun! So
gigantic that it would take one
million of our suns to fill them.
Well unfortunately, it is time
to stop before we blow a mind
gasket. If you are even vaguely
interested in these concepts,
just wait. We may have a
chance in the future to really
scramble your brain with the
likes of dark matter, black
holes and the real scientific
possibility of time travel.

and alternative collective sep-

"While the first and continu-

for commercial interchange

looking at the needs of the en-

"Commissioner Junior Tuten
was instrumental in enlarging
the focus to include the study
and ultimate development of a

Homeowners who owe the IRS


must read this
If you owe $10,000 or more in past
due taxes, there are four solutions:
(1) You can pay it in full. This is; of
course, your best option.
(2) You can pay it off with a credit
card. This is not a good solution-
unless you can pay off your credit
card in full quickly. Besides, the IRS
charges you a hefty "convenience"
fee.
(3) You can borrow from a friend or
relative. You already know this is not
a good idea.
(4) You can use the equity in your
home to pay off your debts.
This is your best option and we
have the best program.
ONE, we guarantee the lowest rate
in writing. We will beat all offers-or
we'll pay you $250.
TWO, we will not increase your
rate even if you have a low credit
score.


before April 15
We don't let our computer tell us
what to do. We can give you a loan
when others say no even if you have
a "low" credit score.
THREE, there's an excellent chance
your loan will be approved. We
approve 6 out of 7 applicants.
And many of these people have
credit scores below 620. You have an
86% chance of getting a loan-no
matter your situation.
Why must you call before April
15? Because you don't know what
the IRS may do after April 15. They
may garnish your wages, seize your
car or even foreclose your house.
There's no reason to owe the IRS if
you have equity in your home. We
can tell you-free of charge-and
over the phone if you qualify. Open 7
days.

It seems Jackson's dad, not
being a hunter, put a note un-
der the Christmas tree saying
that Tyler was going on a
hunting trip with Mueller.
"I brought him to the range
for target practice and taught
him gun safety before we
went," said Mueller. "We got
to a local plantation Jan. 14

good distance before dying.

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

awards in regional and na-
tional juried shows.
He has had one-man shows
in the Southeast and his paint-
ings hang in many museums
and private collections.
In 1987, he was invited to
the White House to present a
watercolor of the Mister Lin-
coln Rose to the First Lady
Nancy Reagan.
The painting was accepted to
hang in the White House in
honor of the designation of the
rose as the national flower.
He was commissioned by the
Georgia Citizens for the Arts
to paint a watercolor of the
Georgia State Flower, the
Cherokee Rose, that was pre-
sented to the State of Georgia
to hang in the Governor's
Mansion.


In 1989, a watercolor of the
Queen Elizabeth Rose was
presented to Elizabeth II for
the Buckingham Palace Col-
lection.
In 1991, another painting of
the Cherokee Rose raised more
than S70.000 for the Georgia
Rotary Student Program.
He has also illustrated five
books.
Most of Dixon's methods
have been developed through
self-study and observation.
Through the media of water-
color, pen and ink, oil, and
acrylic, he "attempts to seek an
acquaintance with nature and
respond to God's creation in
an act of praise."
He is the water media in-
structor for the Thomasville
Cultural Center and is cur-
