City Eyes New Fees, Hikes


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

The City Council is poised
to raise water rates again, and
likely will do so at the March
meeting.
Indeed, the only thing that
prevented the council from
raising the rates earlier this
month was the desire to await
the results of a rates study that
the Suwannee River Water
Management District
(SRWMD) is conducting.
The SRWMD study, it is the
thinking, will allow the council
to make a more informed deci-
sion about what the rate in-
crease should be.
"The rate study will tell us
what we need to do," City Su-
perintendent Don Anderson
said Tuesday. "What we might
do is set a different structure
with a flat rate.
"People who don't use much
water L would paj the minimum
fee. People who use a lot of
water would pay extra, such as
25 cents more for every 100
extra gallons ."


City officials believe that
such a rate structure would be
more fair than the present
structure, which charges a flat
fee regardless of water use.
Part of the goal is also to re-
place the many nonfunctional
water meters that presently
make it impossible for the city
to gauge accurately consumer's
water usage.

GEORGE


The city last raised watei
rates-in--July. That- increase
consisted of $1 inside the city
and $1.50 outside the city,
bringing the rates from $11.50
to $12.50 and from $17.25 to


City Aims To Create

Large Reserve Fund


S$18.75 respectively. :
It subsequently raised sewer
rates $3 inside the city and
$4.50 outside the city, all part
--of an effort to make the water
and sanitary sewer operations
self-sufficient.
The new water rate increase
is expected to up the monthly
charge another $1 or $2.
At the same time, the council
'wants to go up $200-or-so on
the connection charge that
residents must pay to tie into
the city's water and sewer sys-
tems. The expected increase
will raise this charge from the
present $550 to $750 inside
the city, and from $825 to
$1,025 outside thecity.
The reason for the increase,
according to Anderson, is that
the present charges barely
make up for -he cir,'s labor
and material costs.
"I did an analysis of the tap-
in costs and we're barely
breaking even, if not losing-


money," Anderson said.
Additionally, city officials
continue pushing for the impo-
sition of a system's charge -- a
euphemism for what is essen-
'tially an impact fee.


The one-time system's
charge would be applied to
new residences to compensate
the city for the effects of new
development on the city's wa-
ter and sewer systems' capaci-
ties.
As explained by consultant
engineer Robert George, who
is preparing the necessary.
study to justify imposition of

mittee that is recommending the fee increases. Next to
him is City Attorney Bruce Leinback. (News Photo)


the system's charge, the money
accumulated from the charge
would. allow the city to under-
take capital improvement pro-
jects.
Among the projects that city
officials have identified for
improvement or expansion
once the monies are available:
extension of the water system
north along US Highway 19 to
take up the Jefferson County
Kennel Club and Parkway
Pines Subdivision; upgrade of
the Pecan Grove and Holly
Hills inter-loop connections;
and extension of the Cooper's
Pond and Spring Hollow/Wau-
keenah Highway interconnec-
tion.
Increasingly, city officials
have expressed frustration with
what they perceive to be
George's slow progress in the
completion of the study.
Councilman Luther Pickles
recently asked the status of the
report, given that the council
had last instructed George to
present the study's findings in.

Go-Kart Racetrack Hearing


Sets Canceled On Tuesday

"nior Staff W\riter

the fate of the" lI~a suit

racetrack got canceled at
isi moment.

Shirley explained Wednes-
day that changes in the law
vith and subsequent case rulings
pre- had prompted his decision.
to) Shirley's motion to dismiss,


which triggered the schedul-
ing of the hearing, was based
on the plaintiffs' "failure to
prosecute."

Higher Court
Changes Rule

Meaning that since the
plaintiffs filed their suit in
September, 2004, they had
done nothing to move the suit
forward, in effect allowing it
to languish.
It was Shirley's argument
that not only was it the plain-
tiffs' responsibility to push the
case forward, but that by fail-
ing to do so within a year of


the filing, they in effect lost
their right to pursue the matter.
In October, however, the
Florida Supreme Court is sup-
posed to have changed the law.
Shirley said the new rule states
that any document submitted
during the year counts to de-
feat a motion to dismiss that is
based on "failure to
prosecute."
In the racetrack lawsuit, that
saving document was the re-
quest for withdrawal from the
case filed by the attorney for
the county's codefendant -- the
Tallahassee Karting Organiza-
tion, the developer of the pro-
ject.


Although not intended to
keep the suit alive, the attor-
ney's motion to withdraw inad-
vertently accomplished that
very end, Shirley said.
Indeed, the attorney's re-
quest for withdrawal -- based
on alleged differences with his
client -- was the only paper-
work filed in the case since the
county and the Tallahassee
Karting Organization filed
their original, motions to dis-
miss in November, 2004.
Given the new rule, Shirley
said the judge would have
been duty-bound to deny his
motion to dismiss.

Coordinators promising a
fun and festive family event,
at the Home Town Get Down
"Mardis Gras," 5-9 p.m. Fri-
day, Feb. 24.
County resident Gail Jou-
bert, who has firsthand expe-
rience with Mardi Gras, has
come forward to lend her ex-
pertise to help make the event
authentic.
"While the Mardi Gras in
New Orleans can get bizarre,"
said Joubert, small towns
around New Orleans also
celebrate Mardi Gras and
have parades and festivities
which are more family ori-
ented. That's the kind of
Mardi Gras we're going to
have here."


She said that coordinators
have beads and doubloons to
throw into the Monticello
crowd from the float they are
building.
"A classic item to throw is
also Moon Pies, and we have
plenty of those to throw.
"We are going to have mu-
sic and volunteers, and coor-
dinators are going to be
dressed in masks and wearing
the Mardi Gras colors," she
said.
The Mardi Gras colors in-
clude purple, symbolizing jus-
tice, green, symbolizing faith,
and gold, symbolizing power.
"It's a very symbolic
event." She said that Mardi
Gras traditionally has King
Rex, usually an older man
with a younger girl on his
arm, and that coordinators

we didn't want to waste the
court's time with a hearing,"
Shirley said.

He said the next step is for
his side to begin discovery
proceedings. He said the de-
fense will now become aggres-
sive in its effort to bring the
matter to a quick resolution.

The Tallahassee Karting Or-
ganization, meanwhile, report-
edly has continued with its
plans to develop the 98-acre
property off Big Joe Road in
the east part of the county.
In fact, expectations were
that the developers would have
the racetrack completed and
ready for an opening early this
year.

The project's opponents ar--
gue in their suit that the special
exception that county officials
granted to the racetrack vio-
lates the county's Comprehen-
sive Plan, which limits the
permitted uses within the 100-
year flood plant to agriculture
and silviculture practices..

The county has since-
amended the Comprehensive
Plan specifically to allow
racetracks, among other rec-
reational uses, in agricultural
zones.

The suit also alleges that
county officials failed to give
adequate public notice of the
hearing to affected property
owners.
Among other concerns, oppo-
nents object to the noise, in-
creased traffic and the
compromised rural lifestyle
that will result from the race-
track.

Why I Switched


to Republican
Arriving in Jefferson County in 1968-and
becoming a permanent resident in 1972, 1 found it
necessary to be registered to vote as a Democrat in .
order to participate in choosing our local officials. I
have always voted for the person rather than the
party.
My family were all Democrats. Several served in
the Georgia Legislature. One grandfather was
mayor of Tallahassee on two different
occasions.The other was president of the Georgia
Senate, nearly elected Governor, and served as
Georgia's Secretary of State. My parents changed to
Republican in 1953 when there were fewer that 100
in Leon County and I am certain that none of my
ancestors w would be members oftoday's Democratic
Party. '
I changed my registration to Republican last year. I
can now, because of changes in primary election
laws, participate in most local elections. The party
of Howard Dean and Teddy Kennedy do not reflect
my views nearly as often as their Republican
counterparts.
Look at the contrast between the parties. Compare
Powell and Rice versus Albright as Secretary of
State, also Justices Souter and Ginsberg in contrast.
to C chief Justice Roberts and Justice Alito. Janet
Reno would not be my choice as Attorney General.
Neither party fully reflects my personal views, but
the Republican Partm certainly comes closer. Our
local Republican Party is on the move and is
experiencing significant growth. Consider who best
represents your values. Please join our efforts.

County schools are planning
their individual programs in
honor of February as Black
History Month.
Programs began 7 p.m.,
Tuesday at Jefferson Elemen-
tary School when kindergar-
ten students presented a pro-
gram during the PTQ
meeting, in the media center.
The program included special
events from February includ-
ing Black History, American
Heart Association. Super
Bowl, President's Day, Fa-
m"inous Americans, Valentine's
Day and Ground Hog's Day.
For the first time in two
years, Jefferson County High
School has devised a way to
host a program for Black His-.
tory Month.
Coordinator Bill Brumfield
said that JCHS has not been
able to conduct a program for
the past two years because the
acoustics in the gymnasium
are poor,
However, JCHS will pre-
sent a live-feed for students
10 a.m., Feb. 24.
Brumfield said that JCHS
does have the capabilir of
setting up a live-feed for the
entire school.
"We'll set up the feed..
and cameras in the chorus
room, and the entire school
will be able to view the pro-
gram at the same time.
Guest speaker will be Talla-
hassee Police Chief Walt
McNeil.
Brumfield said that seniors
would all be present in the
chorus room during the pro-
gram.

"We do not devise a special
program for Black History be-
cause Black History is dealt

lar Social Studies curriculum
throughout the entire school
year," he said.

VA Highlights


Benefits Offered


S Opinion & Comment


One of the Department of
Vcmeran Affairs' (VA) highest
priorities is ensuring that
America's 24 million veterans
are aware of the benefits avail-
able to them as a result of their
military service. VA is' reach-
ing out particularly toi'teran?
who have an injury or medical
condition they'believe is re-
lated to their active military
service to encourage to contact
their local VA regional officer
for information about the VA
disability Compensation Pro-
gram. VA want to. do every-
thing possible for the nation's ,
newest vete;rani coming home
from Iraq and Afghanistan,
and also make sure that the
veterans who served in earlier
periods, wartime or peacetime,
are not overlooked.
Even veterans of conflicts long
past who have never filed a
claim for disability benefits
-may still be eligible, and VA
Regional office employees
across the nation can assist
them.
Veterans who received a VA
disability compensation rating
many years ago and whose
service-related disabilities
have progressed in severity
should also contact their local


regional office for assistance in
submitting a claim for in-
creased benefits.
VA efforts to inform veterans
about their disability compen-
sation benefits face a special
challenge with older veterans
wvho may not have been in
touch with VA for decades, or
who may not be aware of the
entire range of expanded veter-
ans' benefits available to them
or their families.
Veterans should not hesitate to
contact VA and apply for the
benefits they have earned in
service to our country.
While VA cannot guarantee
that all benefits claims will be
granted, VA cannot grant
benefits and unless veterans
file or reopen their claims.
Veterans and their families
may call the VA toll free at
800+827+1000 or visit the vet-
erans benefits Web site at
http://www.vba.va.gov/.
Claims for disability compen-
sation or other benefits may be
filed in person, electronically,
or by mail.
VA also encourages veterans
to seek assistance from the
various national, state and lo-
cal veterans groups and serv-
ice organizations.


Criminal Records

Can Be Expunged


t Short Takes & Other Notions


BY MERRY ANN FRISBY

1 have watched some of the
2006 Olympics. Recently I
watched the Curling event, in
which team members gently
slide a large stone to a bull's
eye. I am sure that other sports
require finesse, but the exacti-
tude and grace of these athletes
is a beautiful thing to watch.
Most of us have grace in
some area and 1 have person-
ally witnessed a finesse of
movement or talent on many
occasions. Those of you who
know my husband will laugh
when I tell you he can be very
graceful.
Once I had to interview a
man in the soup line at St.
Thomas More Catholic Church
in Tallahassee. I had never
been there. The soup kitchen is
in the rear of the Church, but I
did not know that. My husband
had accompanied me but
waited in the car.


I walked into the main part
of the Church by mistake. As I
turned to leave I realize that
two very scary looking and
drunk men had followed me
into the Church.
They were staggering down
the aisle towards me and every
vision of every murder in a
movie sanctuary spun in my
head. I was frozen in terror.
With no sound, my hero ap-
peared in the Church and es-
corted ne out to the angry ex-
pletives of the- villains. The
duo followed us as we walked
towards the rear of the Church.
Their verbal assaults became
more and more abusive and
they danced to the rear of us.
They howled in indignation at
being deprived of their prey.
I just wanted to get to the
soup line and near other
people. As we neared the rear
of the building, David let go of
my arm and took one large
step backwards. I. was bewil-
dered. Without a sound he


grabbed the entire head of the
man who was approaching him
from behind with a large knife.
David swung the man over-
head in the most beautiful arc I
have ever seen. Because of
surprise or intoxication, the
man dropped the knife and was
slammed flat on his back with-
out doing anything to break his
fall. The whole movement was
almost like a pas de deux in a
deadly dance.
The vwoild-be atiacker had
the wind knocked out of him
and lay on the ground
moaning. His friend stood at a
safe distance and cursed. I as-
sume that these drunkards had
been torturing the people who
looked to the Church for food,
because the whole soup line
broke into applause and
cheers.
It was beautiful, done grace-
fully and with finesse. I kissed
my hero's hand.
I was the beneficiary of a
different sort of finesse re-


cently, a finesse of ingredients.
A couple fairly new to town
bakes bread. Mimi and David
are retired from Sanibel Island.
Happily, they chose Monti-
cello as their home. David's
hobby is baking bread.
I first tasted his bread in a
downtown store and was al-
most knocked to my knees by
the wonderful and unusual fla-
vor. An old-fashioned term is-
"It was so good it made, you
want to slap your
Grandmother!" My Grand-
mother is long passed or she
might be in some danger. The
bread is delicious.
-I called David and Mimi to
order some bread. They 'came
to our home with bread bags
steaming with fresh baked
bread. The time and attention
expended in this bread baking
effort is a graceful talent at
teasing heaven out of ordinary
ingredients. I was so
overcome; I kissed the bakers
hand too.


BY CARL BOATWRIGHT
Clerk of Court


Q: How can a criminal re-
cord be sealed or expunged?
A. There are certain steps to
follow to qualify for a record
to be sealed or expunged.
When a criminal history re-
cord is sealed, the public will
not have access to.it; however,
certain governmental or related
entities do have access.
When a record is expunged,
those entities which would
have access to a sealed record
will be informed of the expun-
gement, but would not have
access to the record itself with-
out a court order.
To access detailed informa-
tion about the process, go to
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement's web -page at
-., \v.ire.state.fl.us/expunge.
To begin, a Certificate of
Eilgioility must be applied for
in order to file your petition to
seal or expunge. The issuance
of the Certificate by FDLE in-
dicates that you are statutorily
Eligible for the relief being re-
quested.
To procure the Certificate,


you must first complete Sec-
tion A of the application, you
must be fingerprinted by
authorized law enforcement,
and you must provide a certi-
fied disposition of the case to
.be sealed or expunged which
can be obtained for a fee from
the Clerk's Office in the
county in which the charge
was brought.
A nonrefundable money or-
der or cashier's check for
$75.00 payable to FDLE must
accompany the application.
If you're requesting expun-
gement, you must also have
the state attorney or statewide
prosecutor complete Section B
of the application.
A person may only seal or
expunge one arrest record in
one proceeding, and there are
requirements governing the
charges that can be sealed or
expunged.
Application forms and gen-
eral information packets are
available from the Clerk's Of-
fice.

Annoying Little Things


BY DENNIS FOGGY
Columnist


Is it just me, or has anyone
else noticed that in the large
department and grocery store
there are usually 15 or more
registers for check out, but
only two are open and operat-
ing when you get in line?
The other day, I was about
six positions back in one of
those two available check out
lines in a major department
store. After patiently waiting
for what seemed like an eter-
nity, I was excited to find my-
sell next to check out. Not so
fast, seems like the person in
front of me wanted to purchase
an item that didn't have a price
tag.
All motion stopped while the
clerk got on the phone to call


the department for a price
check. (I think we all know
what that means). If this was-
n't maddening enough, while
-waiting for some faceless
worker to answer the depart-
ment phone and do a price
check, some other clerk (evi-
dently having finished her
break) strolled behind register
number five, flips on the serv-
ice available light and an-
nounces. "Checkout on aisle
five is open".
Faster than greased lighten-
ing, the people in the very
back of the line made a mad
dash for register five! I could
have just screamed! Evidently
the thoughtfulness and cour-
tesy for others that was taught
to me. is a thing of the distant
past? Moreover, who is the
bonehead store manager who
hasn't trained his personnel to


avoid this customer relations
nightmare by instructing his
personnel to announce, "Next
in line please" to insure patron
fairness?
Then there is the proverbial
"coin purse". When I am in
somewhat of a rush, inevitably
there will be that little old lady
in front of me with the coin
purse. Yesterday I had the ex-
perience yet again when a
women was charged $28.8 1.
The lady handed the clerk
the twenty-eight dollars and
then with uncompromising de-
termination began to dig out
the exact change from her coin
purse. "Let's see, that's five
cents, ---seventy-five. --- (now
digging for that nickel),
---eighty--- (the index finger
raked skillfully back and forth
through the change until that
lonely, penny was found)


Be MVP With Children


BY BARRY SANDERS

The 10 years I spent on the
field with the Detroit Lions
were some of the most reward-
ing years of my life.
While football was a high
point in my life, nothing has
been as rewarding or as fulfill-
ing as being a father.
My wife Lauren and I have
three sons, ranging in age from


one to 11. I know first-hand
that being a parent is a tough
job and it's ongoing.
Many of the parents I meet
struggle with the same issues
my wife and I face with our
kids.
How do you instill positive
values in your kids? How do
you steer them away from
negative behaviors? How do
you help them grow up suc-
cessfully? FHow can you be


both a parent and a coach?
Earlier this year, I became
involved in MVParents.com, a
campaign that gives parents
tools to be the most valuable
players, or MVPs, in their kids'
lives. I have an interest in fam-
ily causes and I really liked the
idea of becoming an MVP
Dad.
An emphasis of
MVParents.com is to help par-
ents reduce underage drinking,


--eight-one". Just shoot me!
For men, life is simple. We
hand the clerk thirty dollars,
take the bills she hands us back
and stuff them in our billfolds
and the coins go into our
pocket to later be deposited
into that change jar in the bed-
room. Wham bam. we are out
of there!
Here is an example of an-
other one that gets under my
skin. I was waiting in line to
speak to the clerk about the
purchase of some tires. There
were a couple of folks in front
of me, which was no problem.
After they had completed
their business and as I stepped
up to the computer for my
turn, the telephone behind the
clerk began to ring. Without
hesitation, the clerk turned and
picked up the phone and began

(See Annoying Page 5)



I
but it's so much more.
The Parenting Playbook on
MVParents.com gives moms
and dads a "personal coach" in
the parenting process and spe-
cific "plays" for helping kids
be more successful in school,
,et involved in the community,
reduce other risky behaviors,
and make positive choices now
and throughout their lives.
As the "coach" of my family.

Julia Ann McBee JCHS


Teacher Of Year Nominee


RAY CICHON
Managing Editor

Julia Ann McBee has been
nominated as Jefferson County
High School Teacher of the
Year.
She teachers ESE classes in
grades 9-12 and has been in
her current position for three


years.
McBee has taught a total of
12 years in Florida and is certi-
fied to teach emotionally
handicapped students and spe-
cial education.
Principal Chalmus Thomas
said of McBee: "I have seen
her working many hours on
cases that others might have
labeled hopeless.


MVP With Children


(Continued From Page 4)
I have to live my own advice
daily. So do other parents
striving to be MVPs.
One of the most important
things you can give your chil-
dren is your time and it's eas-
ier to do than you may realize:
What you do together is less
important than doing it to-
gether. Simple actions like go-
ing to the park or running er-
rands together gives you time
to be a positive role model,
teaching through actions, not
just words.
When I look back on my
childhood in Kansas, I'm
amazed by my parents.
There were 11 kids in our
family. Like parents today, my
parents clearly had their hands
full!
Yet, they always found ways
to involve us in their everyday
lives.
For example, my Mom spent
hours just talking to me or tak-
ing me to choir practice and
during the summer when my
Dad was a roofer, he some-
times took me along to work
with him. These are positive
experiences that have lasted a
lifetime.
Open and honest conversa-
tions are important. As kids get
older, they often ask about the
things you did when you were


12'-'
Ar


CRUMITIE


their age.
If you did things that you
don't want them to do, it's im-
portant you're honest with
them. That may be uncomfort-
able, but you can turn it into a
learning experience by ex-
plaining why your choices
were wrong and why you don't
want them to make the same
mistakes.
It's important to remember
that communication is a two-
way street. As much as you ex-
pect your kids to listen to you,
you also need to listen to your
kids to be able to help them
become the best they can be.
As much as you may be a
positive role model for your
kids, there are difficult issues
you need to talk to them about.
Sex, drugs and-dfiiking are a
few of the things you need to
talk about early and often.
It's important to talk about
what, you consider inappropri-
ate and why. For many teenag-
ers, "why" is an important part
of the discussion.
(Barry Sanders spent his 10
year NFL career as running
back for the Detroit Lions from
1989-1998. "Sanders was
named the league's MVP in
1997, 'and he was ,the third
youngest player inducted into
the Pro Football Hall of Fame
in 2004).

"Moreover, she is always
ready to help others, man,, of.
whom seek her understanding
and counsel.
"I have found her alh ays
ready to help her students and
her fellow educators, always
willing to go the extra distance
to make sure all is handled ef-
ficiently."
Commenting on behalf of
their grandchildren under
McBee's tutelage, Mr. and
Mrs. George German said-
"Ms. MCP is a very good
teacher who takes time ith
her students and shows care,
and concern for them, and
their well being.
"She goes the extra mile to
help students get the best edu-
cation possible, even though
their abilities and limited.
"Students like being in her
class and try very hard to be
stars in her eyes."
About her teaching philoso-
phy, MCP says: "I believe one
of the professional impressions
I demonstrate is having high
expectations for me and my'
students.
"Education is a lifetime pur-
suit, and I am constantly tak-
ing classes to improve myself
as an educator."
Her personal accomplish-
ments as a teacher include her
love of teaching, and her stu-
dents which have been her
greatest teachers.
"I began teaching in my 40's
after a career in banking/real
estate, and I am able to incor-
porate this knowledge in my
curriculum," she said.
Concerning. educational is-
sues and trends, McBee be-
lieves that the ability to read is
an issue which all people.
Social and home changes are
some of the causes of low
reading levels. Children need
to be taught he value of a good
book.
Likewise verbal interaction
between parent and child is
important, McBee states.

a conversation with someone
oL, iously inquiring about
tires.
At one point, the clerk laid
the phone down, departed into
the backroom for a few min-
utes and then reappeared with
essential information to re-
sume his telephone conversa-
tion.

I wanted to scream, "Hey, I
was here first!". Why is it that
the telephone trumps all other
activity that is going on in our
lives?

I swear, if there were a tele-
phone in the operating room. I
believe the,surgeon would stop
removing the spleen and take
the phone call!
A primal sense of urgency to
pick up the phone and stop the
ringing seems to overtake real-
ity and everyone's common
sense, and those marvelous in-
ventions of instant communi-
cations, the cell' Ip'6ne, have
only compounded the problem.

Jan 19, 1914-Feb. 17, 2005
It's been a year now that you
slipped away from us and it
only seems like yesterday that
you were right here with us.
We miss you so very much
but we know that you are safe
in the arms of God.
No more pain, no more
sleepless nights, no more suf-
fering.
God saw that you were get-
ting weary but you were strong
and fought to the very end.
We miss you from sitting in
the comer of the sofa but in
our hearts you are still there.
We loved you but God loved
you best.
In loving memory,
children, grandchildren,
great grandchildren, Henry
(Betty,) Laverne (James,)
Altamease (Rufus,) Pearlye
(James,) Willie (Catherine,)
and Gwendolyn.

IN MEMORY
Gregory VaShawn Meeks
Sept. 21, 1975 Feb. 19, 2000
Another year has come and
gone since you moved to your
new home.
On February 19th six years
ago the phone rang and the
message received gave us a
hard and sad blow.
We've made it through dark
days and nights holding on
with all our nmghr' '
Remembrance olf 'ou arid
many of your ways we've
sighed, cried, and laughed for
days and days.
I can often see that big smile
and joy on your face as you
say "Ole girl, that food was
good, and I'm full. I'll sure be
back for another pull."
God has kept and brought us
this far. It seems a short while
that you crossed the bar.
The love we shared was one
of a kind. You are constantly
on our mind.
You will always remain in
the depth of our hearts even
though we are far apart.
Jesus "dropped the charges."
Missing you solely. Precious
memories will linger on.
Your sons,
Pooh, and Tez;
Mother, brothers,
sisters, grandmothers,
aunts, uncles, nieces,
nephews, many cousins,
and friends.

Warriors Beat Bell

In Season Opener


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

Aucilla Christian Academy
varsity baseball team won the
season opener 8-6, against
Hamilton, Tuesday.
In the pre-season two-game
tournament prior to the
opener, the Warriors split the
games, losing against Blount-
stown, 6-1 and winning over
Apalachicola, 15-0.
Coach Ray Hughes said that
during the tournament, the
Warriors were playing with-
out a full roster because a
number of the boys were still
playing in the basketball tour-
naments.
He added that in the ganfe
against Blountstown, Chris
Tuten pitched four innings
without giving up a single
run.


"At first, it looked like Ham-
ilton was going to run away
with the game," said Hughes.
"They scored four runs in the
top of the first, then we came
back and scored four runs in
the bottom of the first and
scored another four runs in
the second inning."
Casey Gunnels went three
for four and scored two runs;
Colby Waddail, two for three.
Tuten pitched the first five
innings, striking out five bat-
ters and giving up the four
runs in the first inning.
Dustin Roberts pitched the
sixth inning and had the only
Warrior extra-base hit, a dou-
ble; and Gunnels pitched the
seventh inning.
The Warriors will square
off against Bell, 4 p.m., Fri-
day, here.

Emily Brock Competes In

Cheerleading Tournament


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

Five year-old Emily Brock, .-
a member of Perry's Taylor
Elite Stardust Cheerleading
team, recently competed in
the championship tournament
at the Florida State Fair and
her team took the first place
trophy in her division.
She is the daughter of Kirk
and Katie Brock, of Monti-
cello, and competes monthly
in events.
Katie said that there were
approximately 2,000 cheer-
leaders, ages through high
school in the championship-


tournament, and about nine
teams in Emily's division
called The Tinys.
Emily is the smallest girl on
-her team, so she is in the posi-
tion of "Flier", the girl who is
tossed into the air during
stunts, due to her size.
Katie said that the team has
placed first in all of their
competitions this year.
"The girls love it and really
look forward to all of their
competitions," said Katie.
"They say it's a lot of fun."
She added that Emily
dreams of being a Georgia
Bulldog cheerleader or possi-
bly a cheerleader for the Flor-
ida State Seminoles.

Healthy Weight Loss available
only at Jackson's Drug,
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.
