Clerk of Court Dale Boat-
wright let it be known Tuesday
that he will be resigning effec-
tive Dec. 31, after 10 years in
the office.
Boatwright actually tendered
his resignation to the governor
March 1, but word of his deci-
sion only began to filter out


this week.
"I just decided I want more
time to myself," Boatwright
said Tuesday. "The job has
changed over the last 10 years
and it's become more demand-
ing. There's also some health
considerations, but I don't
want to go into that."

Information on election of a
successor will be reported in'
next edition.

visited the 14 stops on the tour
Saturday and Sunday.
Volunteers totaled 185 local
residents and friends served as
tour guides and accommodated
visitors.

Almost a year after commis-
sioners agreed to install added
security measures in the court-
house in response to a request
from the chief justice, the pro-
ject may finally be getting off
the ground.
"We need to get the ball roll-
ing on this," Commissioner
Jerry Sutphin pressed recently,
reminding the board that Sec-
ond Circuit Court Chief Justice
Charles Francis had made his
request more than a year ago.
"This is an administrative or-
der," Clerk of Court ..Dale
Boatwright added. "We need
to get the work done."
The problem, Boatwright
said, has been finding a con-
tractor willing to bid on the
project, which' includes erec-
tion of a wall and a security
door to limit access to the
judges' chambers.

That problem appears re-
solved now, however. Build-
ing Inspector Wallace Bullock
informed the County Commis-
sion recently that a contractor
had stepped forward with a bid
of 12,768 to do the work.

Bullock said the bid carried a
$300 deductible, provided the
contractor didn't have to sup-
ply a custom-made door.
"He's concerned about hav-
ing to match the historical inte-
rior of the courthouse," Bul-
lock explained.
He said the contractor pro-
posed to use modern building
materials in lieu of the existing
wall tiles, which aren't manu-
factured any longer.


"He will try to duplicate the
tiles as close as possible," Bul-
lock said.
Commissioners expressed
satisfaction with the proposal,
provided it met with the chief
justice's approval.
"The judge is not concerned
with the look," Boatwright
said. "He's concerned with the
functionality of the thing."

Francis requested the en-
hanced security measures in
late 2004, prompted in part by
court shootings in George and
Texas at the time. But the chief
justice reportedly had been
pushing for the enhanced secu-
rity measures since first as-
suming the office a couple of
years earlier.
The enhanced measures call
for a wall to be erected in the
first floor corridor where the
metal detector presently sits, in
effect barring public access to
the courtroom and the judges'
chambers at will.
The security wall will have a
door that the judges will be
able to open and close via re-
mote control from their cham-
bers. Persons wishing to access
the courtroom or the judges'
chambers will have to tele-
phone the particular judge's of-
fice to be allowed in.
At the same time, the west
door of the courthouse will be
permanently locked, providing
a secured corridor for correc-
tional officers to bring jail in-
mates into the courtroom.
Additionally, everyone enter-
ing the courthouse will be
screened for weapons. The al-
ternative is to station a full-
time deputy at the courthouse,
something commissioners say
the county can't afford at pre-
sent.

Two structure fires over the
weekend resulted in one Mon-
ticello couple being left
homeless.
Fire Rescue reports, that at
9:03 p.m., Saturday, a call
came in for units to respond
to 143 Blue lay Road, the
residence of William and
Cheryanne Bergner.
Responding to the call were
Fire Rescue, and Monticello,


Lloyd and Wacissa
volunteers.
The home was a 27 year
old, two-story wood fl-ame
house. Upon arrival, fire was
coming out of all of the w in-
dows on the second story,
some of the windows of the
first story and out from under-
neath the home.
Iirelighter finally extin-
guished the Ilames and de-
parted the scciee at 1:45 a.m.
The home was deemed a to-
tal loss, and owners reported

The county will soon have a
backup 911 system, should the
main system at the jail ever fail
or the facility have to be
evacuated.
The County Commission re-
cently approved the installa-
tion of the secondary 911 sys-
tem at the Dunn Building on
North Jefferson Street, which
serves as the Emergency Op-
erations Center (EOC) and
which is wired for such a sys-
tem.
Building Inspector Wallace
Bullock presented the request
to the County Commission on
behalf of the Sheriffs Depart-
ment a little more than a week
ago. He said the backup sys-
tem will consist of the existing
911 system, which is being re-
placed by the phase 2 of the
Enhanced-911 version.
Grace Thomas, 911 director,
explained Monday that the ex-
isting system, which is a
Simon-Positron, allows the
dispatcher to get a caller's
name and address if the indi-
vidual is calling from wired
phone and to identify a tower
if the individual is calling from
a cell phone.
Phase 2 will allow the dis-
patcher to identify the exact
position of the caller, whether
the call is coming from a wired
or wireless phone, and it will
further pinpoint the-call's ori-
gin on an electronic map.
Phase 2 of the Enhanced
911 system is being installed
with a S139,610 grant the
county received from the Rural
County Wireless Grant Boardl


in October.
Thomas said in the event the
dispatch operation has to be
moved because of some emer-
gency, the secondary system
can be activated in matter of
minutes.
Possible circumstances under
which the operation might
have to be moved include a
lightning strike on the jail; a
fire within the facility; or a
train derailment involving
chemicals on the nearby
railroad, which would force an
evacuation of the area.
Thomas said the old jail on
Dogwood Street and the old
high school on Water Street
were considered as possible
sites for the secondary system.
But the cost of wiring the two
buildings for the 911 system
made the options unfeasible,
she said.
Although establishment of a
secondary 911 system in not
mandatory at present, Thomas
said it was only a matter of
time before it became
mandatory. She therefore
thought it prudent to install the
secondary system now that the
money was available, she said.
Thomas said delivery of the
new system is scheduled for
June 12, with the installation
expected to be completed by
June 16.
One concern commissioners
raised when approving the
Dunn building as the location
for the installation of the
secondary system was that the
installation not be permanent.
That's because officials want
eventually to construct an
Emergency Operations Center
near the jail, and they want the

a Rolls Royce,
Merry-go-round, and a

The John Denham Bed and
Breakfast is owned and oper-
ated by Patricia Inmon. This
Victorian frame house proudly
features five bedrooms on the
second floor and a doorway to
stairs leading to a distinguish-
ing octagonal cupola and
elaborate brackets.
The Cottage Bed and Break-
fast was originally a bungalow,
a popular residential building
design in Florida during the
first three decades of the twen-
tieth century.
Completely renovated and
now owned and operated by
Martha and Jon Michel Cra-
vanzola, it has been trans-
formed into the Classical
Mediterranean style by their
handiwork.
The home has a display of
interesting original artwork by
Jon and others, and the court-
yard features magnificent
fountains.

the small Dr. John Dabney

in the corner of the lot, have.

Red Cross was notified and
supplied the couple with $280

Sunday morning, a call
came in to respond to a struc-
ture fire at 1600 State Line
Road, a residence owned by-
Barbara Watkins.
Upon arrival, firefighters re-
ported that heavy smoke was

tion of the roof.

there, once that facility
becomes a reality.
Officials, in fact, are in the
process of lobbying the
Legislature for the funding for-
such a facility. Thomas,
however, raised an interesting
point Monday.
Of what good would a secon-
dary 911 system be, she won-
dered, if it was located in close
proximity to the jail and the
jail had to be evacuated be-
cause of fire or a chemical
spill?

The Tour ended on the Ave-

Greenville woman, on Ash-
ville Highway, March 17, re-
ceived three charges from
FHP.
Rebecca Lopez, 41, of Tal-

Wootens Conservation

Farm Family For 2005


DEBBIE SNAPP
Staff Writer

The Jefferson Soil and Water
Conservation District recog-
nized Jackie and Tom Wooten
as the Conservation Farm
Family for 2005.
The award was given in rec-
ognition of their commitment


to wildlife and woodland con-
servation on their farm in
northern Jefferson County.
The farm has been part of the
Wooten's family since 1917.
Much of the land was in row
crops and terraces, water-
ways dotting the fiels.
Tom states that a strong love
and bond to the land was in-
stilled into them years ago.


"Being good stewards of the
land was implanted into us by
our parents as part of our up-
brining on the farm. We were
constantly repairing the ter-
races and land to keep it from
eroding," he adds.
Today the crop fields have
been converted to timberlands.
Several ponds have been
built on the farm for fishing,
and provide water for water
fowl and wildlife on the farm.

Ink Spattered Girl Had Class


She wasn't the cutest girl.in
my fourth grade class, but she
was a very close second. As
luck would have it, she sat
right in front of me.
I could tell right away with
the opening of the school year
that fourth grade was gonna be
OK.
Long about the second or
third day of school she turned
around and asked to borrow
my eraser. I was smitten!
Every day I sat behind her
admiring her long black hair,
which she frequently wore in
braids.
I didn't know much about
fashion but I knew she always
dressed nicely.
Besides being pretty, this.
girl was smart. My, my she
was smart. Her hand automati-
cally shot up when the teacher
asked a question of the class.
Once I overheard her telling
another girl about her future
career plans and 1 couldn't be-
lieve it.

just interested in getting the
school day over with so we
could play. Here she was talk-
ing about a career!
I didn't talk to her very
much. I didn't know what to
say. Fourth graders, as you
may recall, are not terribly
blessed with social skills.
One of our daily drills,
which I disliked intensely, was
practicing writing sing the
Palmer Method. We had
straight pens which we dipped
in ink.
Lo and behold, one day that


pretty girl in front of me ar-
rived for class with a fountain
pen.
The teacher allowed her to
use it for writing exercises es-
chewing the straight pen.
It I was impressed with her
before this, I was bowled over
now.
Everybody in class was ad-
miring her Schaefer fountain
pen.
I got up enough courage one
day to tap her on the shoulder
and ask to see her pen.
She obliged and handed it to


me. I uncapped it and wrote a
few words. I put the cap back
on and had I quit there every-
thing would have been fine.
But, I got curious about how
one filled a fountain pen and
took it apart.
Under the plastic cover was
a plunger arrangement so I
pushed it.
Ink sprayed all over the
back of the girl's white blouse.
She turned around and
smiled at me the same time
reaching for her pen.
I quickly reassembled it and
began apologizing.
Every eye in that class was
on her ink stained blouse and
on me, the klutzy who was re-
sponsible.
The next day I was wishing
I sat somewhere else because I
didn't want to face her.
She arrived for class and
was just as pleasant as always
with no mention of the ink,
stained blouse.
I never asked to borrow her
fountain pen again.
And, she never offered.


FSU Study Targets virus


LIBBY FAIRHURST
Florida State University

The hepatitis C virus (HCV)
infects more than 170 million

people worldwide and leads to
both acute and chronic liver
diseases. Since its discovery
several decades ago, the insidi-
ous human pathogen has sty-
mied the quest for anti-viral
therapies by refusing to repro-
duce in test tubes for more
than a few hours or days, de-
nying scientists an efficient vi-
rus production and infection
system for experimental re-
search.
Now, in a landmark study by
Florida State University, biolo-
gists that could bolster the de-
velopment of anti-viral thera-
pies for HCV as well as for
related RNA viruses such as
West Nile and influenza As-
sistant Professor Hengli Tang
and doctoral student/co-author
Heather B. Nelson have dis-


covered the molecular mecha-
nism that inhibits HCV repli-
cation in vitro after its host
cells become crowded and
stopped dividing.
What's more, their ground-
breaking discovery came about
as a result of the new test they
developed that can quickly and
easily monitor HCV replica-
tion in the laboratory.
Finally, after Tang and Nel-
son uncovered the reason for
suppression of the virus in cell
culture in a nutshell: not
enough nucleotide molecules,
Sthe building blocks of HCV -
they then adapted an existing
cell technology to remedy the
problem right in the test tube.
"Our findings could prove
-critical to research on HCV's
complex virus-host cell inter-
actions and lead to better, tar-
geted treatments," Tang said.
Currently, any nucleotide star-
vation therapies, used primar-
ily to treat cancer, can inhibit
replication by depriving viral


agents of their molecular
building blocks. However,
those therapies may impact
healthy cells, as well, causing
undesired side effects."
In the human liver, the para-
sitic HCV makes copies of its
genetic material by hijacking
nucleotides the little mole-
cules provided by its dividing
host cells. It is only in the liver
that pools of nucleotides re-
main available to HCV in suf-
ficient supply after the host
cells reached confluence (stop
dividing). Not so in test tubes,
say the FSU researchers.
To address the shortage of
HCV building blocks in vitro,
their unique adaptation of an
existing cell technology en-
abled the introduction of nu-
cleoside molecules to a culture
of liver cancer cells. The nu-
cleosides then converted to the
essential nucleotide molecules
that Tang calls the missing
link. In turn, the nucleotides
generated in vitro replication


of infectious HCV particles
that continued even after host
cell confluence as it does in
the liver.
That's not all. "Our new cell
line also allows us to rapidly
identify and isolate drug-
resistant HCV mutants in vitro
and to screen for anti-viral
drug candidates," Tang said.
"This will help researchers
better study the mechanism of
drug resistance, a big problem
with this virus and other such
as HIV (human immunodefi-
ciency virus) that mutate
quickly."
Underpinning everything,
Tang says, is their novel, easy-
to-use assay. It can track mu-
tant strains of HCV in a week
or less while other assays take-
weeks or months.
"Our assay, for which FSU
has filed a provisional patent
application, employs a new re-
porter cell line, which means

Technology Improves Lives


The next time you send an
e-mail to your family, plan a
vacation online, or send a
photo of your newborn to your
parents, you may want to tip
your hat to technology.
When Sandra Johnson was
young, she thought an engi-
neer was a person who drove a

A few years later, she be-
came the first black woman in
the U.S. to earn a Ph.D. in
electrical engineering.
Now a Chief Technology


Officer and Senior Technical
Staff Member for IBM's Sys-
tems & Technology Group,
Dr. Johnson believes it is im-
perative for black families to
incorporate technology into
their daily lives. "There are
any number of reasons blacks
can't live without technology,"
Dr. Johnson says. Here are her
top five:
1) Technology Levels, the

Playing Field: From small and
medium-size businesses to vis-
ual, literary and recording art-


ists, to information dissemina-
tion technology brings the
world to our fingertips.
This offers a special advan-
tage to members of the black
community who have tradi-
tionally encountered obstacles
to success in these and other
areas.
Technology levels the play-
ing field, so that black voices
can be heard, black offerings
can be marketed and creativity
and innovation can flourish.
2) Economic Empower-


ment: Technology enables
blacks to do some incredible
things at the click of a mouse.
They can shop for just about
anything, pay bills, plan vaca-
tions, purchase entertainment,
wine and dine at reduced cost
and use online services to find
the best banking services.

Resident Claims Go-Cart Track

Will Do Little For Local Economy


Dear Editor:
Jefferson County has been
saved by the Go-Cart Track.
For years now, the County
Commissioners have used
"lack of funds," or "no funds"
to explain conditions on
county roads, cleaning out cul-
verts, no raises for county em-
ployees, and various other
things.
There is a big race set for
March 31 to April 2 on Big Joe
Road for carting enthusiasts.
I just know our fortunes have
changed. No telling how much
money will be pumped into-


our economy that weekend.
Tim Phipps told the Talla-
hassee Democrat in an earlier
article, that he will have $2.2
million invested when he fin-
ishes the cart track.
What has our county been
doing with this windfall?
David Ward needs to remem-
ber the $2.2 million when set-
ting their tax base.
In reality, I'm sure very little
has been spent locally. We
need a report on their eco-
nomic impact. I don't believe
the people coming for races
will be spending locally.


They will come in motor
homes and bring what they
need. Where is this eco-boom
coming from?
When Phipps was asked why
he did not build on his own
land in Leon County, where
the Phipps own thousands of
acres, his answer was that he
would have to pave too much
road to use the Leon County
property.
Also, he was asked why he
wanted to build his cart track
in a quiet rural community on
Big Joe Road, instead of north
of town where racing is al-
ready established.

He stated that :he was told
there would be less opposition
on Big Joe Road, and anyway,
"who wants to live by a
prison?"
No one wants to live by a
race track either. The noise
from the carts is very loud and
disturbing in this quiet com-
munity.
The construction of the race
track area has dug holding
ponds, spread dirt to make
roads, pumped off wet areas,
paved roadways, and damaged
Big Joe in the process.

Her theme for this show was
inspired by, the grand old
homes of Monticello and the
surrounding areas.
She feels that each of the
older homes has unique archi-
tectural elements, and the
vegetation around the homes
has had time to mature and be-
come a part of the homes.
She says "They complement
each other and create a com-
plete vision."
Davis was born in Pennsyl-


vania but has been a resident
of Florida since 1986.
After working too many
years in traditional jobs she de-
cided to go to college to pur-
sue her love of art.
It has been a long journey
since then, going to school at
nights and around other sched-
ules, but she is finally ready to
graduate from Florida State
with a Bachelor's degree in
Studio Art, with a minor in Art
History.
She has enjoyed all of the ar-
tistic disciplines, but her real
love is photography.
When she was a little girl in
PA. she first became intrigued
with National Geographic.
This dream has inspired her to
pursue photography which she
can incorporate with her pas-
sion for travel.

Southeast Regional Cancer Center and the North Florida Cancer Network
were established to promote the finest principles of medical care. Can-
cer Care is more than just treatment. It is using the best option for each
patient. It is having the technology to solve each problem individually
with grace and elegance. It is no longer acceptable to have side effects
and complications just because you have cancer. It is not acceptable to
have less than the best. You deserve the best care with no exceptions.
The North Florida Cancer Network can provide all the options needed for
your best care. We have the newest proven techniques for your well be-
ing. You are a part of our family, part of our whole community not just a
patient. Although we have the most advanced technology in the world it
is the way we use it that sets us apart. After all, living well means individ-
ual care and attention, everyday, every year for the rest of our lives. We
are in this together.

Boys, Girls Club Sets Flag


Football

FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

To kick off the inaugural-
season of the Boys and Girls
Club of the Big Bend Flag
Football League, Super Satur-
day was recently hosted at
Carrabelle High School.
More than 200 children from
Jefferson, Leon and Franklin
counties were in attendance,
with some 60 local residents.
Program Director James
Mercado said the Jefferson
teams played well, winning
three of four games.


Super Sat
The high school team,
called the Cowboys, won 31-
6; Middle school team,
Chargers lost 17-22; Middle
school team, the Browns, won
18-16; and the elementary
team, the Dolphins, won 6-0.
Mercado said that since this
was the first game for the
coed team, statistics were not
kept. He did recall that Reg-
gie Watkins scored two
touchdowns, and that Lamar-
kus Bennett and Trey Bennett
alternated between the posi-
tions of quarterback and re-
ceiver.
He added that in upcoming


Tigers Fall 11-1


To East Gadsden


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

The Jefferson County High
School varsity baseball team
fell to East Gadsden 11-1, last
week.
"We struck out nine times,"
said Assistant Coach Jim Nor-
ton. "If that doesn't end up
costing the win, nothing will."
Curtis Hightower was the
starting pitcher. He struck out
one, gave up five walks and
gave up four runs in the first,
none in the second or third.
He was replaced with Arez
Ammons, who struck out one
and walked four.


"That's when the flood gates
opened," said Norton. He
gave up six runs."
Ammons was replaced with
Shayne Broxie, who walked
one and gave up the winning
run in the fifth, due to the ten-
run rule.
At the plate, the Tigers had
three hits.
Demario Rivers went two
for two and scored the lone
Tiger run; and Hightower and
Telvin Norton each had a sin-
gle.
The Tigers now stand 1-5
on the season.
The Tigers are slated to play
Madison, 4 p.m., Wednesday
here.


urday
games, all statistic and roster
for each team, would be pro-
vided.
Along with the friendly
competition, the children had
an opportunity to participate
in a NFL punt, Pass and Kick
competition.
The children were divided
up into four different age
groups; ages 6-8, 9-11, 12-13
and 14 and up.
"With several upcoming Su-
per Saturdays of flag football
planned for the near future, I
strongly believe we've taken
the first step in creating some
positive excitement about this
newly-formed league," said
Mercado.
The next Super Saturday
flag football event will be
held April 8, time and loca-
tion to be determined.
The final game will be the
Tournament of Champions, to
be held in May.
Children must be members
of the Boys and Girls Club to
participate.
For further information
about the league or becoming
a member, contact Mercado at
519-1200 or by e-mail at
jmercado@bgcbb.org.
The new league is made
possible through a grant re-
ceived from the NFL.
The primary goal of the
league was to generate excite-
ment about a non-contact
sport that is open to all ages,
male and female, throughout
the Big Bend.

Maclay 6-4

The Jefferson County High
School varsity softball team
lost to Maclay, 6-4, last
week, and now stand 3-4 on
the season, and 0-4 in district
play. i
Coach Earlene Knight ac-
credited the loss to five errors
committed by the Lady
Tigers.
"Maclay was out-hitting us
all over the place, but we
were able to defend against
it," said Knight.

FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

City Police report that law
enforcement officials, includ-
ing MPD, FDLE and Crime
Stoppers, continue to seek ad-
ditional witnesses to the mur-
der of city resident, 22 year
old Ricardo Fadell on May
14, 2005, near Allen's Bar.
MPD Sgt. Roger Murphy
reports that the.case is nearly
ready to go to trial, but addito-
nal witnesses to the incident
are being sought for the prose-
cution.
"There seems to be a lot ot
reluctance for additional wit-
nesses to come forward," said
Murphy.
MPD reported that on May
14 at 1:37 a.m., officers were
dispatched to a fight in the
900 block of East King Street
and found Fadell in the street
a short distance away, with
what appeared to be a single
gunshot wound to the chest.
Fadell was transported to
TMH and city officers, along
with county deputies, began
interviewing witnesses and
combing the crime scene for
evidence.
A short time later, TMH no-
tified MPD that Fadell was
deceased.
Witnesses, identified the
gunman as 24-year. old John
Jermain Mitchell of Tallahas-
see.
Mitchell reportedly left with

Tallahassee officers arrested
Mitchell.
Mitchell was booked into
the Leon County Jail under
murder charges and later
transferred to the Jefferson
County Jail, where he pres-
ently resides.
While investigating the mur-
der, MPD officers inter-
viewed a man who reported

that he was threatened by
Mitchell with a gun, moments
before Fadell was gunned
down.
.The witness reported that
Mitchell had started an alter-
cation in the area of Allen's
Bar, with him,. at which time,
Mitchell produced a handgun,
threatened the man and fired a
shot in the victim's direction.
