*U County Takes



Next Step On



Sewer System


Project Will Change

County's Character


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer,
Supporters of the one-year-
old shuttle service-have now
taken their appeal for funding
to the County Commission.
George Hinchcliffe, a repre-
sentative of the Shuttle Sus-
tainment. Committee of the
Jefferson County Disadvan-
taged ,Transportation Board,
told commissioners last week
that absent local contributions,
the shuttle will cease operating
early next year.
Hinchcliffe explained that
When the shuttle started 14
months ago, the Florida De-
partment of Transportation
(DOT) and the North Florida
Workforce Development


Board (NFWFDB) funded the
program 50-50, assuring it
would last three years.
In March, however, the
NFWFDB pulled its funding
because of a 57 percent reduc-'
tion in its 'budget. Meaning
that the shuttle now is now op-
erating strictly on DOT fund-
ing.

3,800 People
Used Service I
in First Year ,

"That accelerates the use of
the money," Hinchcliffe said.
"Instead of lasting three years,
it will now last through Janu-
ary or February of 2007.".

Mosquito Control Program

Changing Way It Does Job


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

The mosquito control pro-
gram is being revamped to
make it more convenient for
residents.
That's the word from Bob


Glenn, the program's new di-
rector.
Glenn told commissioners
recently that henceforth, the
sprayings will be done by
zones and on a regular basis.
Previously, residents had to
call each time they wanted
(See Mosquito Page 2)


have been key players in the
little more1 than a year ago


He said it, costs about
$40,000 annually to operate
the program, or the equivalent
of $1.52 per vehicle mile. .
The shuttle runs a continuous
one-hour route between 7:30
a.m. and 5.30 p.m. Monday
through Friday.'It stops at 22
locations within the cit) and
goes out to adjoining areas of
the county. Cost of the ride is
50 cents per person.
The statistics show that
3,800 city and county residents
benefited from the shuttle .dur-
ing its first 14 months of op-
eration.
Hinchcliffe said i.f the service
ceases, 56.1 percent of the
rider-ship will have to find an-
other means of transportation
to their jobs, to do their daily
shopping, to pay bills and to
conduct other consumer serv-
ices (or not do some of these
activities at all).
Of the rider-ship, 15.1 per-
cent will have. no access to
senior-related services, he said.
Another 28.8 percent will
have no access to medical
services, he said.
"It costs the local economy
triple this amount when per-
sons aren't working, aren't re-
ceiving adequate medical care,
and aren't spending monies in
the local economy on a regular
basis," Hinchcliffe said.
He said his group was spe-
cifically asking that the
County Commission contrib-
ute $15,000.
Commissioner Jerry Sutphin
was the most receptive to the
request.
He urged his fellow commis-
sioners to reach consensus, if
not make a commitment, that
they would do everything in
their power to keep the service
going.
That way, he said,
Hinchcliffe could cite that
commitment when he ap-
proached local merchants and
asked them for contributions.
"The shuttle is something
that we don't need to let slip
away," Sutphin said.
The best he could get from
the other commissioners was
that they would consider the
request during the budgetary
(See Shuttle Page 7)

Senior Staff Writer
County commissioners on
* Thursday approved a $5,000.
, e\peridiunre for the hiring of
experts to :advise them on the
best way to proceed with the
establishment of a countywide
The'action came at [lie re-
quest of Dick Bailar. clihriian
,of tie JeI'tr;on Coiint, Utilit4 ,
pDe'. e[olPnicii Cu ( inniite,
v.hich has been exploring the-
itsue for more than a year
now.
Bailar told commissioners
that the project had reached a
crucial point and that his com-
Inittee had gone as far as pos-
sible under its authority.
He said it was time for
elected officials to step in and
make the critical decisions that
had to be made to determine
the future of the count',
Those decisions, Bailar said,
included determining the loca-
tions of enterprise zones,
sewer utility lines and high-
density areas, among other in-
terrelated issues.


"We're on the, cusp of great
change in this county." Bailar
said, a refrain that i heard of-
ten nou days. "If we.wait, our
efforts will, be too little, too
late. I'm asking for $4,999 and
for you toschedule a se'ries'of
workshopsto bring in experts
so that we get it right. This can
be profitable if it is done
right." '.

Project Will
Cause Mainy
changes To
Comp Plan

-Bailar said the experts
could help commissioners bet-
ter make the decisions that
needed' to be made. But utlti-
mately, he said, ,those deci-
sions would be up to the com-
missioners.
"You five will have to make
the decisions," Bailar said.
"This is essentially a county
project.' As such, the County
Commission has to make a
commitment to it.
."No fairy godmother is go-
-ing to come and put down a
SSillMi ._ a W


sewage 'treatment plant. And
the decisions that you make to
facilitate the plant in Lloyd
Willspill over this county."
SRoy Schleicher, Grants Of-
fice director and a members of
the utility development com-
mittee, offered his thoughts on
the inatter
The goal for commissioners,
Schleicher said, %%as not to de-
cide- where the route for the
sewer line would d go.
More critically,' he said,
commissioners firs had to de-
cide ifthey wanted gro%%th to
come here. And if sQ, where
was that growth to'go?'
S'If you \\ant to e `-this"
county change, then you have
to, answer the question of
where that growthis going to
go," Schleicher said. "Enter-
prise zones should not be
looked at as isolated spots. En-
terprise zones have to be sur-
rounded by other commercial
development and by high-
density residential."
He compared enterprise'
zones to the proverbial stone
dropped in a pond. The enter-
prise zone was the stone,
Schleicher said. The ripples
were the commercial and resi-
dential development's and other
ramifications that would fol-
low from the creation of the

COMMISSIONER SKEET JOYNER recently attended Gov. Jeb Bush's signing of a bill
that benefits fiscally constraint small counties. The governor praised the Jefferson
Legislative Committee for its work in getting the legislation adopted.

Governor Recognizes Local Group

For Its Active Role In Last Session


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

You know you've made an
impression-when the governor
taps you for special attention.
Such' was the experience of
Commissioner Skeet Joyner.
Joyner recently was invited
to Palatka for Gov. Jeb Bush's
signing of a bill that benefits
fiscally constraint small coun-
ties.


'Indeed, the legislation as-
sures that this county will re-
ceive somewhere between
$500,000 and $600,000 annu-
ally for the next 10 years. The
first $50,000 installment, in
fact, is expected to arrive this
month.
The Jefferson County Legis-
lative Lobbying Committee, of
which Joyner was the founder
and is an active member, re-
portedly gets much credit for
helping to get the legislation


adopted.
So much so that the gover-
nor, after signing the bill at the
public ceremony, supposedly
turned to Joyner and com-
mented on the local delega-.,
tion's contribution.
The governor then handed
Joyner the pen with which he
had signed the legislation, in
acknowledgment of that con-
tribution.
"He said it was because we

,. ith a single florist inducted
each year.
Sikes has been a floral de-
signer for 35 years.
He owned Rosew ood Flow-
ers and Gifts in Capps for 17,
years, and for. the past. 10
years, he has ov. ned and oper-
ated Abbie's Flowers, in Tal-
lahassee.
Sikes served as the onl\
guest designer in Orlando for
the National Federation of
Garden Clubs, on May 27.
The five-day event saw
some 1,000 members attend.
Sikes displayed many pieces
he crested, much from differ-
ent elements he locates in na-
ture.
One of those designs, stood
seven feet tall and was con-
structed of Monkey Puzzle,--
Vine, he had brought back
from Costa Rica, many years-
^o-
ago.
The vine can no longer, be
removed -from the state be-

piece contained 150 red roses.


Of Fame
Sikes has never taken7 for-

SAman is also involved with
the renovations and upgrades
at the park. He works in con-

in sports," said Aman. Back
when Marty Bishop was hired
as the first director, I coached
a Little League baseball team.
I've played on softball teams
in tournaments, and I've been
in horseshoe tournaments."
Over the years Aman has
worked at the Park, sports
programs have greatly ex-
panded.
"We started out with two
ball fields, and now we have
enough fields to. simplify 'the
process of scheduling games,"
said Aman..
"Since I took over, the num-
ber of youth baseball teams
have close to doubled, though
in reality, it's not as big as' it
should be."
Plans for upgrades continue
at the park. "Right now,
we're 'trying to develop the
new piece of land for ia Babe
Ruth field," said Aman.
"I'm still working to get that
complete. Most of it is al-
ready done, but there are still'
a ,few small things that have
to be done to make it usable."
He has also started %working
ofi obtaining a grant to go to-
- ward the renovations needed
at the park, including reno\at-
t ing the tennis courts, build
more picnic tables, resurfac-
ing the fitness track, renovat-
ing the rest room facilities,
. the baseball fields, and build-
ing a second pavilion.
Aman attended Jefferson
County High School through
the' ninth grade, at which time
-he attended Aucilla Christian
Academy, where he played on
'the baseball team, until he
graduated.
"I'd much. rather be working
outside than cooped up in an '
office," he said about his
rork." B~ --.- *'*; "

enterprise zone.
Bottom line, commissioners
-- through the Planning Com-
mission and with the advice of,
the requested experts -- would'
'have to undertake a 'major revi-
sion *of the Comprehensive
Plan, :.
S"You will need to make a sig-
nificant change to the, Comp
Plan," Schleicher said. "You
need to decide where those
nodes of growth are going to
!occur. Forget the se,,er line
and the enterprise zones; that
will come later: You % ill first
have' to decide where the
grow th is going to go. You .
may need to fight, it out
amongst yourselves. But when
it's done, you will be able to
gi e the Planning Commission
ra clear direction.
The consensus among com-
missioners was to begin the se-
ries of icrkshops on. the.
sanitary sewer system as soon
as possible upon completion of
the budget which h they are in


the process of preparing. I he
,expectation is that the work-'
shops will begin as .early as
late August or early
September.
Proponents of the project
don't, want.to see their one-
year. plus effort lose momen-
turnm, given that they consider
-he country already 'to be be-
hind the eight ball in terms of
dealing with growth.
cA 'reefi~ study conducted by
the Florida' RtkrM after Asso-
ciation (FRWA) on behalf of
the counrn found that a coun-
rt\ ide sanitary sewer system
is not only feasible, it is criti-
"cal if the country is to direct its
growth. '
The study found that the
counit-'s present population of
14,952 will double to about
30,000 in 20 years. It found
that if the appropriate utility
infrastructure is put in place,
that gro\w th could reach 45,i)0u0
by 2025.

"Come with me. I ,aint you to

I said the first thing that

:.By now my brain was work-

screamed at me that a woman'

Health Care Needs Overhaul


By JOHN BREALUX
Former U.S. Senator

The country's health-
care system is in crisis The
number of uninsured'Ameri-
cans is at an all-time high,
health insurance premiums are
rising, health disparities are
plaguing our,nation and Medi-I
caid is under major strain.
While I wholeheartedly sup-'
port broad health reform, we'll
never get there if policy mak-
ers can't even implement grad-
ual reforms that :have broad-
based support.
We all remember the tele\ i-
sion program "Crossfire,"
where the moderator's goal
was to encourage heated de-
bate between people on oppos-
ing sides of an issue.
I've come up with an alter-


native: ihe "Ceasefire on,
Health Care; Finding Common
Ground for the IUninsured" se-
ries to stimulate dialogue
among leading bipartisan pol-
icy makers and advocates.
Over the 'last year, I have'
moderated several events in
which participants are encour-
aged to come to an agreement
on health care issues and pub- ;
lic policies.
Since the inauguration of
Ceasefire, I have held forums
featuring prominent health
care reform advocates, among
them former HHS Secretaries
Donna Shalala and Tommy
Thompson, -and Senator Hil-,
lary Clinton and former House
Speaker Newt Gingrich. I can
report that there' are indeed-
I practical solutions to the na-
tion's health care problems
that have bipartisan support.


But for'progLress to be made,
members of Congress must putr
aside their differences and fo-
cus on these areas of agree-
ment.
First, Americans %want Con-
gress to work together' to end
the crisis of the uninsured.
Lawmakers must talk to each.
other so that they can develop
a meaningful solution to the,
:pioblein The answer lies not
in a o\ ernment run system or
a fenid-for-yourself market-,
place,. but, 'instead, a middle
path that combines the best of
both.
This incremental, market-
based approach will also stipu-
late ,that individuals take
greater responsibility for their
own health.
Another idea that has biparti-
san support is the moderniza-
tion of health information


Beware IRA Landmines


By GARY PARSONS
Certified Financial Planner

Today, the largest asset of -
millions of Americans is an
IRA. Many of these people in-
tend to leave their IRA to their
families at the time of their
death. Perhaps you are one of
these people. :
If so there are a number of
and mines you should be care-
ful to avoid if you wish to
minimize or hope to eliminate
he tax consequences that may


I
f
r
t:


come along with the transfer of
your IRA at. the time of your
death or if you simply wish to
preserve as much of this asset
as possible for the benefit of
your heirs.
I will devote the rest of this
article to helping you identify
and avoid three of the most
troublesome land mines con-
fronting, an IRA transfer.
One land mine involves the
improper designation of bene-
ficiaries. The improper desig-
nation of beneficiaries fot your
IRA could cost your heirs a


fortune, by subjecting your
IRA to federal estate taxation
and certainly to federal income
taxation.
A second land mines lies be-
fore those people who do not
put limits on how their benefi-
ciaries may spend down the
IRA the owner worked so long
and sacrificed so much to cre-
ate.
Finally, what good would it
do for you to protect your IRA
from excessive taxation at
your death if you don't have
an IRA left to protect? This is


technology. Providers of
health care serm ices should be
able to access a patient's medi-
cal record on a computer and
systems should be able to
"talk" to each other; health
care costs will be reduced, as
will medical errors.,
Making children a priority is
a message we have received
loud and clear in our forums.
The State Children's Health
'Insurance Program (SCHIP)
w as created in 1997 to expand
health care coverage to needy
,children.
It has been very successful,
yet there are still millions of
children who' remain'
Uninsured. Expanding SCHIP
--will help them significantly
gain access to health care, but
it must be done in a responsi-
ble manner. It also creates an'
(See Health Care Page 5)


a consequence suffered by
many Americans who allow
their IRA to be used up to pay
for the expenses attendant to
their long-term health care,
Fortunately, there are steps
you can take to avoid all of the
land mines discussed above. If
structured correctly, your IRA
could be left to your heirs to
allow them to leave assets in
the plan on a tax-deferred basis
and only take the minimum
amount required b'e law.
This is a huge benefit be-

Arlene Harms Ketner
Arlene. Harms Ketner, 85
years old, died at home on July
1, 2006. She was predeceased
by her husband, Robert L. Ket-
her, who died in January 2006,
She is survived by her loving
daughter and son-in-law, Von
Reichman and Michael'
Reichman. The daughter of
German immigrants, she was
born on the family farm in
Hudson, Kansas on June 5,
1921. She was diagnosed with
type 1 diabetes in 1938, and
thanks to the development of
injectable insulin shortly, be-
fore then, she was able to
flourish and develop physi-
cally and intellectually. She
survived with type 1 diabetes
longer than any other patient
of record in America.
After .graduating from Gar-
den City High School and Jun-
ior College, she and her sister
operated a cosmetology school
in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
While living in New Mexico,
she met her future husband
Robert on July 4th, 1942, and
they married on July 14th,
1942.


They later traveled to the
South Pacific, where her hus-
band was an 'island trader.,
They alsoQ found time to pper-
ate a boy's orphanage in Ha-
waii. After returning to
American for the birth of their
daughter, Von, they traveled
back to the South Pacific and
- resumed the trading business.
Unfortunately a legal dispute
with the Governor of Ameri-
cVi Samoa. led to their reloca-
tion to Seattle, Washinmton..
While living there. Arlene,,
who was completing her mas-;
ter's degree requirements. in,
aeronautical, _. engineering,
worked for several NASA con-
tractors on study projects and
launching which were instru-
mental in laying the ground-
work for future space research
and explorations.
Arlene and her tamil\ moved
into. an old abandoned farm-
house in Laniont in.1972, in-'
heriting an .old, hen named
.Chick that became one of their
many house pets. In the late
1070's, they opened and oper-
ated Kaleidoscope. Limited, a
nianufacturinii company that
produced wall decor for motels
and hotels. As a result of a
contract %with Holiday Inn In-
ternational. their products were
placed in hotel and motel
rooms throughout the world.
Many members of the commu-
nity were able to obtain regular
employ ment and improve their
lies through the opportunities
and support provided by the
Ketners. Arlene and Robert
sold the.company in 1985 and
enjoyed many years of retire'-
ment. This _.ae her an oppor-
tunity to renew her interest in
creative 'activities, such as
landscaping, gardening, an'd
wood carving. She also was a
volunteer counselor to man)
diabetes patients in, the North
Florida area. Even after losing.
the physical strength to be ac-
tive, Arlene continued to be a
support and inspiration to all
who loved and knew her until
her final days
Her family and friends
would greatly appreciate con-
tributions in her memory to the
American Diabetes 'Associa-
tion and the' Big. Bend Hospice.
Any such. expressions would
be a blessing to both them and
her devoted personal physician
of over thirty years, Dr. Carlos,

Extension Agent Tells What

TO Do If Bitten By Snake


I l'I' MO


FRAN HUNT.
Staff Writer

A bite from a venomous
snake demands immediate at-
tention Consumer Science
Extension Agent Heidi Cope-
land reports.
Towards this end she states
that as soon as a bite from a
snake is suspected or coil-
firmed:
Call 911 and request that
an. ambulance be dispatched
to the location.
Call the> Poison Control,
Center's National Hotline at
1-800-222-1222.
The call will be directed to
the Poison Control Center
nearest to the area code from
which the call was placed.
Staff at these centers are
trained to give guidance about*
what steps need to be taken
prior to the arrival, of the am-
bulance.
Provide the Poison Con-
trol Center with the name and
.phone number of the emer-
gency room (ER) where the
victim is located and request-
that the center have a .toxi-
cologist contact the ER.
^ The toxicologist with the
Poison Control .Center is
trained on how to treat vic-. '
tims of venomous. snakebites
and will consult with the doc-
tor at the ER to ensure that
the victim receives the best
care possible.
On-site care for the victim


includes several do's and
don't that should be
followed:
Do:
Get the victim away from
the snake.
Wash the area of the bite
with soap and water.
Keep the victim as com-
fortable as possible, and offer
reassurance. :
Immobilize the bite area if
on an extremity and keep it
lower than the victim's heart.
Remove rings, bracelets,
Watches or restrictive clothing
on the extremity with the bite. -
Keep a record of the, time
of the bites and the victim's
symptoms. This will help the
doctor and Poison Control
Center toxicologist determine
the severity of the bite and ap-
propriate treatment.
Keep track of the victim's
symptoms and' any first aid
measures administered since
the bite.'
Be sure to give ihis infor-
,mation as well as the time of
the bite to emergency medical
personnel.
*Be aare of any allergies
(drug, food, animal) or exist-
ing ,medical conditions the
victim may have.
Snake anti-venom, which
may be administered at the
hospital to counteract the ef-
fects of the venom. is pro-
duced with the aid of horses
and sheep so it is important to
know if the victim'has any al-
'ergies to these animals. _


Get a positive identifica-
tion of the snake if possible.
However, do not delay seek-
ing immediate medical atten-
tion or risk further injury to
the victim of others in an at-
tempt to identify the snake.
Do Not:
Do not apply a tourniquet
