Jackson Now To Head


Middle,.. High Schools
i ^ ~~~.. ,, V"? ;-",;


RAY CICHON
Managing Editor

Juliette Jackson was named
Principal of Jefferson County
High and Howard Middle
Schools, at a special School
Board meeting Monday.
Jackson has been Principal
of HMS, where she also served
as Assistant Principal, and
came to this county from
Gadsden County where she
was a school administrator.
When school reopens in
August, Howard Middle
School will be located on the
campus of the new Jefferson
County High. School, in sepa-
rate quarters.


The appointment of Jackson
was prompted by the resigna-
tion of Chalmus Thomas as
Principal of Jefferson County
-High School,
After the meeting Thomas
said he resigned because he
did not feel he was able to do
all that needed to be done at
the high school.
"I did my best," he said,
"but I knew that JCHS needs
to move in a more positive di-
rection."
JCHS Assistant Principa'
Harry Jacobs also resigned as
Assistant Principal of Jefferson
County High School.
School officials plan to ad-
vertise the vacancy in the near
future.

Downtown Event Draws


Some 600 People Friday


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer


The Home Town Get Down
Friday night drew some 600
citizens, and, officials note the
event drew the largest turnout
of children to date.
The aroma of various foods
permeated the festive atmos-
phere.
Foods included Cajun
-dishes, clam fritters, black
beans and rice, hot dogs ham-
burgers, sausages, plus many
carnival types of goodies in-
cluding cotton candy, pop
corn, snow cones, frozen
chocolate-dipped bananas.
The Caribbean music of To-
comosa kept the drums, gui-
tars and Caribbean beat and
lyrics sounding throughout
the evening.
The real fun started at 6
p.m. with the limbo contest
for young children. As many
as 15-20 children tested their
skills under the limbo bar as it
was slowly moved lower and
lower.
The laughter of the children
grew louder each time the bar
was lowered.


The contest concluded with
a three-way tie, Natalie
Sorensen, Joe Walton, and
Amber Knowles were deter-
mined winners, and each was
awarded a fresh-flower leis.
Then, it was time for the
older children to test their
skills.
Caribbean
Style Music,
Cajun Food
Accent The
Festivities
Laughter continually burst
forth from the crowd as the
bar dropped, and the teens be-
gan falling under the bar as
they attempted to pass under
it.
Gage Winchester won this
sector of the limbo contest.
When the limbo contest for
adults was announced, Brenda
Sorensen was the first to step
forward, and others followed.
The contest concluded with
Sorensen going lower than the
other adults and being
awarded the fresh flower leis.
The Dress Your Pet contest

Tara Reed was named t
winner of the 50/50 raff

As the evening went on, t
crowd grew, adults and ch
dren were seen enjoying t
many wares of vendors, sai
pling the many delicio
foods, wearing their bea
wear, grass skirts, Hawaii
shirts, and leis.
The event was a festive
fair, and the last for the sun

,' A group of local community-
op- leaders interested in adopting a
ews tourist development tax heard
last week from two experts in
the field about how best to go
about implementing the tax.
Sherri Martin, of Visit Flor-
ida (a public/private partner-
ship that promotes Florida
tourism worldwide), and Har-
e., e Camipbe'l, executive direc-
tor of the Columbia County
Tourist Development Council
(TDC), talked extensively
about the tax, its benefits, and
its potential pitfalls at a morn-
ing meeting at' the Avera-
Clarke House on W.
Washington Street.
A point the two underscored
repeatedly throughout the pres-
entation was that the public
needed to be educated on the
tax, which should be called a
tourist development tax, not a
bed tax.
Local residents had to under-
stand that the tax would bene-
fit the community and that in
no way would it be imposed
upon them, unless they stayed
in a local motel, a bed and
breakfast inn or a campground,
the two emphasized.
They said it was a common
misconception for people to
think that the tax would be im-
posed on their beds if it was
called "a bed tax". That's, why
it was so important that it be
rightly termed a tourist devel-
i. opment tax, as only tourists
ts. a would be subject to it, they
,a said.
ei- And why not have tourists
ne pay their way? Martin asked.
c "Don't let tourists come and
sy stay for free," she said. "A
jla- two-cent tax is not going to
S. break them and it's going to
nas help your county a lot."


She cited Franklin County as
a perfect example. Franklin
County residents fought impo-
sition of the tax for 10 years,
Martin said.
Arguments against the tax
ranged from misunderstand-
ings about it being a tax on
people's beds to residents not.
wanting, to encourage tourism,
although the community was
already swamped with tourists,
she said.
When Franklin County fi-
l~y Ado p-fd Ihelx20 04,
it raised $428.000 in the first
year, Martin said.
Of course, Franklin couldn't
be taken as a typical example.
she said, being that it's a
coastal community with a
thriving tourism industry.
But Madison. County, right
next door to Jefferson County,


collected $69,000 last year
with its tourist development
tax, she said.
And rural counties in general
had a golden opportunity at the
present, given the growing in-
terest in rural tourism, which
was projected to continue in-
creasing in the coming years.
"One of the best things that's
happened to us in rural coun-
ties is rural tourism," Campbell
said. "We're at the table now.
It's an exciting time. There are
lots of opportunities now. that
weren't there a decade ago."
As for the argument that im-
posing the tax will drive visi-
tors to surrounding counties,
Martin-and Campbell said that
argument didn't hold water any,
longer. They pointed out that
Madison, Taylor, Leon, Wa-
kulla and other surrounding
counties already have the tax.
Jefferson, in fact, is one of
10 counties in the state that
still doesn't have a tourist de-

Tourism Has Potential

To Bring Dollars Here


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

Tourism impacts signifi-
cantly on Florida's economy,
and whether people realize it
or not, every one of the state's
residents benefits from the in-
dustry.
That's the message Visit
Florida wants to convey via its
small Florida Tourism Fast
Facts card, subtitled "We're
All in Florida's Tourism Busi-
ness."
It's also the reason why the
organization is gung-ho on the
imposition of the tourist devel-
opment tax, which it sees as
tool for economic
development.
Here are some estimates
of the economic impact of


Florida tourism during 2005,
according to Visit Florida..
Number of visitors who
.came to the state: 85.8 million.

Tourism Dollars
Benefit Every "|
State Resident ||:

Number of Floridians di-
rectly employed in the
industry: 944,500.
Amount that tourism gen-
erated in payroll: $15.4 billion.
Spending that was related
to tourism: $57 billion.
A breakdown of the tourism-
related spending during 2005
shows that $13.7 billion went
to lodging (hotels and motels);
$24.1 billion went, to restau-
rants and other dining places;

velopment tax. Others without
the tax include Union, Gil-
christ,, Dixie and Lafayette
counties
"When you start talking
about the tax, you also want to
educate the public that this is
an economic development
tool," Martin said.
It was important, in fact, that
people involved in economic
development early on be
brought aboard the effort to
promote the tourist develop.-
ment tax, the two said. They
cited counties where this was-
n't done and the two groups
ended up working at cross pur-
poses, to the detriment of the
community.
There was also always going
to be an element in the com-
munity 'that simply opposed
the tax because they didn't
want to encourage tourism, the
two said. To those people, they
said, it needed to be pointed
o 6ut that tourism generated bil-


lions of dollars annually and
accounted for !untold jobs,
among other benefits.
Equally important, the two
said, tourism opponents had to
be reminded that absent the in-
dustry, Florida would have to
impose an income tax. Florida'
is one of two states in the
country without a state income
tax.
Tips the ur\o offered for edu-
cating the public and promot-
ing the desirability of the, tax
included holding workshops,
advertising in the new spaper,
and distributing promotional,
,literature.
Other tips included educat-
ing the hospitality .industry
people on how to promote the
county's cultural, natural and,
historical assets; doing a study
to determine who comes to the
area and why; and targeting ur-
ban areas such as Atlanta and
other big cities in the South-
east as potential .sources of
tourists.


"You already, fha\e a h
head start because of y
quaint, historical do tnto
Martin said. "There's so


thing about small towns that
make people feel right at
home. You need to enhance
and market your cultural and
historical resources."
The local Tourist Develop--"
ment Council is engaged in an
effort to promote adoption of
the tax, which will be on the
ballot in November. If. local
voters approve the tax, it is ex-
pected to generate between
$25,000 and $30,000 mini-
mum the first year.
NMonies raised by the tax will _
go to upgrade local recrea-
tional facilities and .infrastruc-
ture and to promote the county
as a tourist destination site,
among other things.. The
money can always be used to
hire a full-time tourist .devel-
opment' director, to administer
the program.

Teens Need To ''d. 'E


Understand Money Opinion & Comment


According to a new poll, as
they get older, a growing num-
ber. of American teens own
credit and debit cards and the.
way iann manage them has
'some people concerned,.
For example, among teens.
ages 13-14, only 5 percent.re-
Sported owning credit cards.
Yet at age 17, the percentage
of ownership climbs to just un-.
der 10 percent and then dou-
bles again to'nearly 20. percent.
for teens 18 or older.
What many find alarming is
that 15.7 percent of teens who
:own credit cards make only the
minimum payment due. At that
rate, it would take a teen more
than nine years to pay off a
$1,000 balance on a credit card
with an 18 percent annual in-
terest rate. -*
These, are some of the key
findings of the 2006 Jnterprise,
Poll on Teens and Personal Fi-
Snance conducted by JA World-
wide (Junior Achievement)
and The Allstate Foundation.
Experts also point to the fact
that the fastest-growing group
of bankruptcy filers is 25 years
of age or younger as a cause
for concern and as evidence
that there's a need for financial
education for teens.
The poll results were an-
nounced by U.S. Treasury
Deputy Assistant' Secretary of
Financial Education Dan lan-
nicola Jr. and JA Worldwide


President 'and Chief Executive
Officer David S.-Chernow.
Said Chernow, "Given the
skyrocketing bankruptcy\ rate
and the A1aggering amount of
'debt being carried by the aver-
age American.family, the time
is now for students to learn
critical money management
skills. JA Worldwide is proud
to join with The Allstate Foun-
.dation to help educate our na-
tion's south in this essential
area."
Earlier this month, Treasury
Secretary John Snow and U.S.
Treasurer Ana Cabral unveiled
the new national financial liter-
acy strategy entitled Taking
Ownership of the Future. JA
World wide is included in the
strategy as a key provider of
financial education to young
people in grades K-12.. -

_ Short Takes & Other Notions


% B1 MERRY ANN FRISBY

This Memorial Day -
weekend, I had the privilege of
reading my friends Max Bilin-
ski's draft of his experience in
Viet Nam. When he is finished
with this riveting true-life ac-
count, I hope he will publish.
I am reminded that all of us,
who live in this bucolic
village,, live here in, safety, and
peace because of men like
Max. Thanks, Max!
Another friend Patricia Pat-
terson told me she did not
want to read any more ac-
counts of baby bird massacres!
It was just too awful for her.
Too awful to me is this
beastly, hot humid summer
time weather. I feel like a
salted slug, or the witch in the
Wizard of Oz. When drenched
by a pail of water she yelled,
"I'm melting." Well, I am-


melting!
One thing I do love about
summer is the wonderful vege-
tables and fruit. Strickland's
vegetable market is stacked
full of red ripe tomatoes, big
fat watermelons and sweet
Vidalia's. The crunchy sweet
bite of a Vidalia sandwich is
one of life's great pleasures.

Many other friends 'row
their onii vegetables. We haye
been the happy recipient ..f
garden largess from our,
friends Mimi and David'
Vanscoter and. Jonathan Put-
nam. Zucchini's are abundant
now.

.. Zucchini reminds me of the
family name, of some large
Italian-Catholic family with
ten,kids. If any of you all have
some ideas for zucchini
recipes, you would be doing
the summer world a favor if
you share them.


This year's new corn is as,
sweet as any I have ever
tasted. We have a corn fest
yearly, and eat only corn for.
one meal. A real corn frenzy. I
am waiting for my friend Jack
Williams to bring us some sil-,
ver queen. He and his horse
manure produce the most'lus-
cious corn.
Jack rumbles up the drive-
%\a\ in his green truck and
offloads 'a horse feed bag of
the gold each year. This is a
greatly anticipated event in my
house.
When our children were
small, I grew- some brussel
sprouts. Neither they nor
David were thrilled, but I love
them. They were about at har-
vest stage when I noticed that
they turned brown around the
edges. Each day they were
browner and browner. I
searched for bugs, I fertilized.:
Browner and browner.


Then I saw a small blur in.
the garden just as the sun., as
coming up. Our ten-\ear-old
son George was, out .there.
ducking and weaving, and hid-.
ing in a way only his mother
can detect.
I caught him as he tried to,
sneak into the house. In his,
hand was a hairspray atomizer
filled with pure rubbing alco-
liol. He fiNured.he only had to-
.,spraN thblbrussel spcouis once.
more before they shriveled and
died on the stalk.
We all ate store bought brus-
sel sprouts that evening. All
the other kids Aere glaring and
snarling at' George who had
brought this brussel sprout
wrath down upon them.
SI am trying to grow some
pear tomatoes this year. They
are not doing too well. George
is now 30 and, lives in Talla-
hassee, so I doubt that he has
been around, but I wonder. He
never liked tomatoes either.


Be Alert To Online

Misinformation


Although the content of
many Web sites is credible,
sometimes there are
exceptions.
That's because the content
posted on the Internet may not
be regulated for accuracy. Un-
fortunately, some Web sites
can actually be a source of
misinformation.
According to registered die-
titian Diane Quagliani: "Be
sure to check the credibility of
any source when it comes to
health and nutrition informa-
tion especially when it comes
to the Web. Acting on misin-
formation may 'result in detri-
mental health consequences."
For example, alarming and
unfounded e-mail hoaxes often
called "urban legends" circu-
late -widely to "warn" people
about particular health perils.
They include banana carrying
flesh eating bacteria,
.cancer-causing antiperspirants
and chewing gums infested
with spider eggs.
Here are some tips for spot-
fing hoaxes arid identifying
science-based sources of on-
line information:
Question information that
makes sweeping claims. One
sign of a hoax is a Web site or
e-mail message claiming that
one product is the cause or
cure for every malady under
the sun.
For example, a common e-._


mail myth is that the, low-
calorie sweetener aspartame
causes a range of medical con-
ditions from brain cancer and
multiple sclerosis to Alz-
heimer's disease.
In reality, aspartame -is ope
of the most thoroughly studied
food ingredients with more
than 200 studies confirming its
safety.
Carefully consider the
source. Scrutinize the source
of information on Web sites
and in e-mail messages.

Is the source a respected
authority- or an unknown
entity? The basic rule of thumb
is to ignore e-mail' messages
from unknown senders and
rely on the Web sites of
known, credible organizations.'
Check out urban legends.
If you suspect an e-mail hoax,
visit www.snopes.com and
www.urbanlegends.about.com..
These sites are dedicated to
setting the record straight
Along with identifying
hoaxes, avoid the temptation to
spread false and alarming in-
formation. Ignore the urging of
e-mail hoaxes and don't for-
ward the message.
Other Web sites that may
help separate health fact from
fiction include the American
Dietetic Association
(www.eatright.org) and the
American Diabetes -.--Assoc.ia-
-tion (www.diabetes.org)


Writer Raises Questions


By DENNIS FOGGY
Columnist

I truly need some assistance-
from readers to help me under-
stand a couple of things. On
the first item, I need to set the
stage so that everyone will un-
derstand where I am coming
from.
I had a unique opportunity to ,
go to Germany last August to
visit some old hunting friends I
met while I was stationed with:
the U.S. Army in Europe. Al-
though times and our waist-
lines have changed, friendship
is a very universal blessing be-
tween good and genuine peo--
pie.
While there I noticed a sig-
nificant number of small auto-
mobiles I had never seen be-
fore, although their manufac-


tpres were familiar names such
as Nissan, Toyota, Ford, etc.
One vehicle in particular
really caught my eye and I se-
riously started to inquire how I
might be able to purchase one
and 'bring it back to America.
It was the Mercedes Smart.
Not the big luxurious and ex-
pensive product normally asso-
ciated with that car company,
but a very compact two seater
that provided exceptional gas
economy without loss of
power. Something I wish I had
today with $3 a gallon gas
prices.
Anyway, I found to my dis-
may that it was impossible to
purchase and import into
America, not only the Smart,
but any of the other variety of
compact and gas economic
automobiles that I saw. Why?
United States safety standards!


Now ,I know that the Ger-
mans' and Mercedes are far
from making unsafe vehicles,
but quirks in the U.S. automo-
bile safety importation laws, I
believe, established primarily
to protect the bloated domestic
car industry, preclude import-
ing any and all standard manu-
factured vehicles from
overseas.
Now my first question. If the
law will not allow me to im-
port a perfectly safe automo-
bile from Germany, why is it :
that any yahoo can take a
Chevrolet, Ford or Dodge
pickup truck and put it on a
frame six feet off the ground
then add giant oversized mud
tires and drive it on highway
90 or down the streets of Mon-
ticello and Tallahassee?
You will never convince me
that such a convoluted vehicle


comes close to any highway
safety standards required for
the original truck!
What is it in our society that
keeps the Florida Department
of Transportation and the
Highway Patrol from keeping
these unsafe vehicles off 'our
roadways?
I was nearly broadsided by
one that ran a stop sign and
stopped just a couple of feet
from my car. All -I could see,
literally, was vehicle undercar-
riage and massive tires. My car
would have easily been "pan-
caked" if he hadn't been able
to stop.,
Secondly, help me under-
stand all the old, junked, aban-
doned vehicles plopped around
peoples houses. It's easy to see
that they are.never going to be
repaired or driven again, so

Fidel's Cuba No Paradise


By TOM DEWEESE
Columnist

For fifty years the American
left has promoted the image of
Fidel Castro as a great humani-'
terian who has saved his peo-
ple in a Worker's paradise.
Here's a fact: Fidel Castro is.
a communist. Period Commu-
nists are not humanitarians..
They are vile,.brutal thugs who


use their power to steal the
rights and property of their
people, forcing them to live in
utter poverty and misery.
- One can look the world over
and will not find a single com-
munist regime that does not
operate this way. And so does
Fidel.
But the propaganda cam-
paign for the oldest living
beast has gained momentum in
- the past few years, describing


in glowing terms the harmoni-
ous life of the happy Cuban
people, forced to struggle
against the unfair American
boycott of their beloved leader
and his communist utopia.
That's the story coming out
of the international news me-
dia. There has rarely been a
crack in the Castro legend. Un-
til now.
- The suffering Cuban people
owe a huge debt of thanks to


the courage of Czech super
model Helena Houdova. She
risked her own freedom by
smuggling photos out of the
Cuban gulag which clearly ',
showed Cuban suffering and .
misery.
The former Miss Czech Re-
public took photos of Cuban
Aids victims and the squalid
conditions in a Havana shanty-
town.

I Reader Wants Wednesday.

i Dear Editor:
I would like to start by say-
ing the Monticello News does.
* a fairly good job of keeping
'the news-reading public in-
,Tformed in Jefferson County.
I was under the impression
-. that newspapers valued their
subscribers.
! As a matter of fact, most
newspapers go to a lot of trou-
S,,ble to gain more subscribers,.
which brings me to my com-
plaint for our dear editor.
Why do I, as a loyal sub-.'
scriber, have to wait until-


Wednesday afternoon to get
my paper?
It would be just as easy to go
to the local convenience center
and purchase it on Tuesday.
If I want timely news, why
wait until Wednesday to get it?
Why not purchase the paper
when I want it and get it before
all the subscribers?
It is time for, this to be
straightened out. If anything.
convenience centers, and other
outlets should received their
deliveries after the subscribers.,

Cuba No Paradise


(Continued From Page 4)
Said Miss Houdova, "The
people are repressed and Fidel
Castro's government is in de-
nial. People can't do what they
'love. People can't speak what
they want. That's what's hap-
pening. The fact that the (gov-
ernment) says there is no
poverty, makes a bad situation
worse."
As a glimpse into the police
state that is Cuba, Miss Hou-
dova's own experience in tak-
ing the pictures makes it clear.
She was arrested simply for
taking the photos, then de-
tained for more than eleven
hours and denied access to
Czech consular officials.
In police custody, the model
was forced to turn over a roll
of 35 mm film from her cam-
era, but was able to hide the
memory chip from her digital
camera in her bra. Miss Hou-


dova brought more than 20-it exits.


photos out of the country,
which she is now exhibiting
around the world.
'Miss Houdova decided to'
take the photos at the urging of
.her Cuban, guide who said,
"please talk about it every-
where you can and let :the
world know what is happening
here."'
She is now very worried
about his safety from Cuban
security police. The Cuban
government is efficient at
slowly harassing and.threaten-
ing anyone who speaks out
against the government. Peo-
ple disappear into the penal
system, never to be seen again.
Such is the reality of the Cu-
ban workers paradise, where
we are told daily that poverty
and misery do not exist. Com-
munism is not a human form
of life and freedom fighters
everywhere should renew ef-
forts to stamp it out where ever

With weather well into the -
90s recently, and with even
warmer temperatures on the
horizon,: Health Department
Chronic Disease Health Pro-
motion and Education Coor-
dinator Marianne Henderson
urges residents to avoid over-
heating.
Heat can affect anyone, but
it is more likely to affect
young children and elderly
people, and people with
health problems.
For instance, people with
medical conditions that causes
poor blood circulation and
those who take medications to
get rid of water from the body
(diuretics), or for certain skin
conditions, may be more sus-
ceptible to heat problems,
than others. -
It is important for everyone
to be prepared for heat emer-.
gencies.

*Stay indoors as much as
possible. If air conditioning
is not available, stay on the
lowest floor, out of the sun- j
shine.
*Wear lightweight, light-
colored clothing to reflect
away some of the sun's en-
ergy.
*Drink plenty of fluids,
even if you don't feel thirsty.
*Water is the safestliquid
to drink during heat emergen-
cies. Avoid drinks with alco- -*
hol or caffeine in them. They
can make you feel good
briefly, but make the effect of
heat on the body worse. This
is especially true of beer,
which dehydrates the body.
*Eat small meals ;and e4y,
more often. Avoid foods that
are high in protein, which in-
crease metabolic heat.
*Avoid using salt tablets,
unless directed to.use them by
a physician.

Humane Society Invites

Residents To Join Group


FRAN HUNT ...
Staff Writer
Members of the Humane
Society Board decided during
the last regular meeting, to
strive to build the Humane.
Society membership to at
least 500 members, to better
support the animal shelter.
In an effort to reach all resi-
dents a flyer is being mailed
out this week to all residents.
"We hope not to be offend
anyone by not sending person-
alized invitations, but this
is the only way we could
reach everyone in the county,
so the flyers will be marked
"occupant" or "resident" said
Vice President Martha Jean
Martin.
"We need everyone to keep
in mind that these are not the
typical junk mail.
"These are invitations to
join a group of people who
can do so much good for the
homeless animals in the
county," Martin said.
Residents are asked to read
the flyers and react positively
to the invitations to join the
Humane Society.
The flyer states that the
Board of Directors have de-
cided to have membership
and pledge dues renewed each
year on June 1. Each M/ay a
reminder notice will be sent
to supporters to renew dues
and pledges. The flyer states
that money coming in at a
regular time -will help the
board plan a budget for the
needs of the shelter.
Volunteers including those


for adoption booths, fund-
raising events, fg.,ter .e. ,
board of directors, .mpmber-:
ship committee and shelter
workdays, as well as addi-
tional members, are always
welcomed and encouraged.
In related news, the shelter
will not be accepting any new
animals until June 15.
"We are full," said Martin.
The reason behind the date
given is to give volunteers
and members the opportunity
to hold an additional adoption-
booth in hopes of freeing
some empty cage space for
any incoming animals.
"If anyone should find a
stray or the victim of a dump-
ster dumping, we encourage
then to check with other area
shelters including Madison.
"They are much larger than
we are and can better accom-
modate any animals needing
care," Martin said.
