urban Designer Tours Town




With Eye To improving Look


Expert Says Much Can

Be Done With A Little


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

A nationally renowned urban
designer from central Florida
spent Monday in Monticello,
walking around the town and
getting ideas for the possible
upgrade of the downtown dis-
trict.
Dan Burden, a senior urban
designer with Glatting, Jack-
son, Kercher, Anglin, Lopez
and Rinehart in Orlando and
director, of Walkable Commu-
nities, began his walking and
bicycling tour of the city with
an early morning talk at the
A\era Clarke House on W.
Washington St. and concluded
it with a power point presenta-
tion at City Hall in late after-
noon.
Accompanying Burden on
his da.\-long trip was a group
of local community leaders, in-
cluding Mayor Julie Conley,
City Clerk Emily Anderson.
Health Department Director


Kim Bamhill and Chamber of
Commerce President Margaret
Levings. ,
The group visited the old
high school, the Health De-
partment and the downtown
area, as v.ell as other points of
interest in the immediate vicin-
ity of the courthouse circle.
All the while,' Burden took
photographs and commented
on the positives and, negatives
that he encountered on the
tour, which information he
presented in a more formal and
organized fashion in his power
point presentation
i Burden told the group that it
had an advantagee o er other
groups seeking to transform
their communities in, that Mon-
ticello possessed a charm and
uniqueness that other commu-
nities could only envy.
"Your circle is unique," Bur-
den said. "You already have
the bones to do what other
communities will not be able
to do. Monticello is a grand
place. Whatever you do' in the


future should be based on the to create, a whole that is cohe- via tweaking of the present benches; -and replacement of

edge need to enhance, not

He suggested that street fur-

Senior Staff Writer

The Planning Commission
subcommittee drafting the con-
servation subdivision ordi-
nance .Monday night put the
finishing touches on the docu-
ment, in' preparation for its
presentation to the full board 7
p.m. this Thursday.,
Planners Brad Mueller, Cor-
win Padgett and Angela Gray
-- with input from Hines Boyd
and other interested citizens
who participated on-and-off
during the lengthy process --
finally were able to reach con-
sensus on a number of issues


that 'had been bedeviling them.
for months.
Admitted.. an imperfect
document insofar as it doesn't
grant 100 percent what any
one interest group would like,
the document attempts through
compromise to reach the best
and more realistic solution
possible, given the competing
interests.
Thu's, certain property own-
ers and proponents of develop-
ment are likely to find the
ordinance too stringent in
some respects, while advocates
of controlled growth and lower
densities are sure to find as-
pects of the ordinance disturb-
ing. It is generally the nature


of compromise, however, that
it pleases no one completely,
especially those in. the .ex-
tremes.
To begin with, the ordinance
rests on the assumption that
growth 'is inevitable.. Given
this premise, the ordinance at-
tempts -- through incentives --
to channel growth into a form
that ultimately preserves the
county's rural character as
much as possible, wherever
possible.
Called conservation subdivi-
sions, these types, of develop-
ments are a relatively new
concept, especially in largely
rural areas such as Jefferson

Citizens' Opposition Causes


City Officials To Reconsider,


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

City officials on Tuesday
night agreed to reconsider a
proposed low pressure and
grinder pump system for
Spring Hollow Road that had
residents there up in arms.
All 14 homeowners on the
street targeted for installation
of the system signed a petition
rejecting the proposal. On.
Tuesday night, most of the
residents attended the City
Council meeting to express
their opposition.
Before they could make their
sentiments known, however,


Mayor Julie Conley announced
that the city was reevaluating
the proposal, a move that dif-
fused the situation.
Conley said the reevaluation
was being undertaken because
the bids had come in lower
than expected. Meaning that
the city might yet be able to in-
stall the preferred gravity, flow
system.
The grinder pump system
entails placing a small pump
on each resident's house, ver-'
sus the conventional gravity
flow system, which would re-
quire construction of a lift sta-
tion.
The engineers recommended
the grinder pump system as the


more economic and realistic
way to go, given the available
funding.
The Legislature gave the city
$582,000 to. accomplish the
work. But the lower prices
quoted by bidders, in conjunc-
tion with the residents' opposi-
tion, triggered the reconsidera-
tion.
Joe Miller, with the consult-
ant engineering firm that is
overseeing the project on be-
half of the city, said his firm
will reevaluate the lower unit
prices submitted with .the bid
and determine if the gravity
flow system is now feasible.
He said the determination

Minister OF Music


At First Baptist


DEBBIE SNAPP
Staff Writer

Daryll Stanley is the new
Minister of Music at the First
Baptist Church in Monticello.
He is looking forward to
meeting everyone in the
church family, and in the
community, and is eager to
get involved in the commu-
nity as well.
He comes here from the
First Baptist Church in Haw-
thorn, where he was Associ-
ate Pastor.
He says that he is ready for
the change in location and the
change in position. "This is
where I vwant to be right
now," he states.
Stanley attended Baptist
College of Florida where he


majored in Voice.
He is responsible for the
various choirs at First Baptist.
These 'include the Senior
- Adult Choir; the Adult Choir
which is the Sunday Choir'
they Young Adult Choir, Chil-
dren's Choir; Hand Bell Choir;
and the Praise Team.
Stanley is interested in get-
ting the. Church Orchestra up
and running again.
He says that he'd like to get
the, community members ea-
ger to have a place to play,
their orchestral instruments.
He'd also like to add Drama
to the music programs, and
plans to try new things, a little
at a time.
He,. comes to Monticello
with his wife of 25 years, El-
len, and their two grown chil-
dren Julian and Kristin.

thetic needs of a community.
The good news, he .said, was
that the area could be made at-
tractive with the simple addi-
tion of green' spaces and the
possible removal of the.roofed-
walkway.
One way of accomplishing
the desired changes, 'he said,
was to move to performance-
based regulations.
Burden said the present code ..
was passive and aimed simply
to present the worst abuses.
Performance based regulations
set standards and required that
the community rise to those
standards.
Burden showed examples of
small and large towns across
the country that had achieved
remarkable transformations in -


their downtown areas. It was
not easy or simple, he said,'but
it was doable. '
He' said statistics showed.
that such enhancements not
.only improved, the aesthetic
appeal 'and ambiance of a
place, but they' translated into
higher yields in economic
benefits.

."You cain sell products 12
cents more on the dollar than if
the street w\as naked." Burden
said. .
The group instructed Burden
to put his recommendations for
the improvement of, the 'city
into writing so that these could
be submitted to the council and
the public for discussion and.,
hoped-for implementation
down the line.


Green Subdivisions


(Continued From Page 1) ,
Counrt. ;
'hiat. coniserx atini .'subdi\ i-
sions do is encourage the clus-
tering or concentrating of
residential' units in a smaller,
area for the sake of leaving a
majority of the land open, and
rural in character. .. .
The carrot or incentive part
of the equation is that develop-
ers who, embrace the concept
are allowed to place more resi'-
dential units on the property'
than normally would be al-
lowed under the conventional
subdivision model.
Among the rules that the.
subcommittee formulated for
conservation subdivisions:
The development must-
I have ,a minimum size': of 80
acres.
A minimum of 40 percent
of the total acreage must be
dedicated.,to communal open
space, with additional housing
units permitted if additional
land beyond the 40 percent is
dedicated to open space.
At least 50 percent of the
land that is dedicated to open
space must be suitable for
. home sites. Meaning that a de-
veloper can not designate wet-
lands and other unsuitable land
as open space simply to meet
the 40 percent requirement.
Too, at least 75 percent of
the land dedicated to open
space must be contiguous,
where practical.
Whenever and wherever
particle also (it's left to the -


discretion of planners aridff-
cials to determine %what is prac- -
tical). roadways must be
kept clear of housing struc-
tures, so that open vistas and
vegetative screens are retained.
The ordinance 'no doubt
will undergo more changes as
it gets reviewed by the Plan-,
ning and County commissions
and the different interested
groups have their say on the:
matter. But Mueller, "Padgett
and Gray expressed confidence
Monday night that ultimately it
will be approved in one fash-
ion or another.
Still to be addressed by
planners are such thorn) issues
as affordable housing and pre-
development septic tank site
'evaluations -- discussions the
three agree were beer left for
another day.
Meanwhile, citizens inter-
ested .in, the future of the
counts 'and in how, their
elected officials' propose to.
deal w~ith the issue of growth
would, do well to attend the
coming discussions.
No doubt residents will also
want to take advantage of the
opportunity to express their
own views on the issue, which
is sure. to have significant
countywide ramifications.
For those interested in at-
tending, the Planning Commis-
sion meeting to discuss the
issue is scheduled for' 7 p.m.
Thursday in the courtroom on
the second floor of the court-
house.

might entail negotiating with
the low bidder or re-
advertising the bid package.
But he warned that a couple of
residences on the street were
so low that they would require
the grinder pump system, re-
gardless of the outcome of the
re-evaluation.
Among the concerns raised
by the residents, which organ-
ized under the name of the
Spring Hollow Tsunami Com-
mittee for Gravity Feed Sewer
Alternatives, the grinder sys-
tem would make them subject
to "additional and undeserved
inconveniences and hardships


in the event of a major and ex-
tended electrical power outage
and/or pump failure."
This was especially signifi-
cant given the propensity the
area had for hurricanes and
-other severe storms,, the peti-
tion stated.
The grinder pump system re-
portedly has a storage capacity
of 150 -gallons, a volume that
the residents say will easily be
exceeded if power is out for a
couple of days.
"As a result, we would be
forced to seek out alternative
living arrangements in motels,
hotels or storm shelters until

Last month, Alcoholic Bev-
erages and Tobacco agents
made 57 random stops in the
County, investigating possi-
ble violations.
While most. vendors were-
found comply ing with the law
and .requesting, identification
from those appearing under
age, five buys were made" by
minors during the month's
time frame.
One establishment was
found 'guilty of two
violations.
Of 11 alcohol related com-
plaints at various establish-
ments, only one resulted in a
purchase by a minor.
Lt. Clay Tolbert explained
that each time agents go into
an establishment, they inform
the person behind the counter


afterward, of the outcome.
If a violation occurs, manag-
ers are immediately issued a
Notice. To Appear, even if the
manager did not commit the
violation.
The violation could also re-
sult in the .loss of the estab-
lishment's alcohol"' and
tobacco license.
,. Tolbert added that Alco-
holic Beverages and Tobacco
agents are consistently work-.
ing throughout the county and
no one ever knows, hen the\

"If we have, cause, we
sometimes use different mi-
nors to make buys, several

Flag- Law Requires

Careful Crafting


REX ROGERS
Columnist /

The most recent LU S. Flag-
[desecration amendment failed
*to pass in the UiS. Senate by
one \ote. It's the fifth time
such a measure has failed int
the Senate:'since 1990. The
House of Represeniatives hais
approved an amendment seven
times in that period.
The 66-34 Senate vote did
not strictly follow .partisan
lines with Republicans "for"
o.and Democrats "against," but
it was close. Only 14 Demo-
r rats voted for the amendment
while 3 Republicans voted
against it: But this issue is
about much more than parti-
sanship .
Flag desecration is an emo-
tional issue because it is by
definition a patriotic one.. Peo-
'le tend to measure one an-
Sother's patriotism based upon-
bow he or she views flag dese-
pration laws. It's a game of
"'More patriotic than thou."
On the one hand, "desecra-
Pion" is difficult to define. If
the amendment passed; would
i have to give, up my U S. Fla2g
golf club' headcover? Is my
headcover desecration or;, as I
intend, is it a patriotic expres-
ion? If the amendment passed
Would we need to rid our
louse of flag stickers, flag col-
ored jewelry, flag decorated.
clothing? Or is this not dese-
cration but more patriotism,? I
f burning, a flag is desecration,
than why are we instructed to
burn flags when the material,


wears but?
On the'' other hand.
while "desecration" maybe
difficult ;to .....c, everyone
knows it' when %\e see it. A
person burning a flag in \io-
lent protest of the American
nation or its policies is cer-
tdinlN recognizable different
from a person burning a flag to
dispose of it.
Still, one could argue that
one person's desecration'is an-
other person's patriotic expres-
sion, however reprehesilri'l
some of.us-'may. find this, idea
or it enactment. People burn
or otherwise destroy U.S.flags,
(and other flags) because the\
want to say something. They
miay, be patriotic, just, differ-
ently so.
I recognize that people who
oppose flag desecration laws,
or amendments may be as pa-,
triotic asI. am. The\"re not [t
opposed to such 'laws because
they want' to desecrate the flag.
They oppose such laws be-
cause they want to protect
freedom of.expression and be-
cause .they don't know. how
these laws will be endorsed in
practice.'
I agree nth their cohoern for-
how the. law is written. .The,
law must be clear so that en-
forcement can be reasonably
applied. What we don't want is
a flag version of Prohibition,
something that turns out to ne-
cessitate an embarrassing re-
peal -
Still, with all that, I favor
flag desecration laws as long
as they are properly written,

I learned gun and hunting i

Once again, back in those in-
famous and rebellious si\iies "
Sdurig the birth of activist lib-1
eralism, along came the anti-
gun crowd. Their sole purpose
in life was and continues to be
the total elimination for fire-
arms from the American conti-
fnent. .
Due primarily to their leftist
liberal leanings, they put all
the blame on guns (inanimate
objects), rather than the real
culprits, the criminals. It is as

A couple of years back, our
neighbors to the north,
Canada, (who somewhere took
a hard political left turn with-
out myiny noticing), passed a i
strong. anti-gun law that man-
dated the registration of all
firearms under penalty of im-
prisonment.


This first step in the poten-
tial total elimination of all
guns, ( a technique used in
Nazi German\ under Hitler),
has been an abysmal failure.
The crime rate has rapidly\ es-
culated and the \ast majority
of guns confiscated after
crimes 'are (guess what?" Not
registered at all.
I heard the head of the Cana-
dian Police supporting all gun
registration under the concept
.that police could scan the data.
base as a safety measure ,and
see 'if there were any guns in
the house when responding to:
domestic violence calls.,
I guess if there are no shown
guns registered, the cops just
relax and let their guard.down!
Remember, most of the guns
confiscated from 'criminals
,were not registered.
I sure am glad that our local
sheriff deputies and Monticello
police are a lot smarter-than
Canadians.
Jf you believe that I am a
member of the National Rifle
Association, think again. Years
ago as a young man, I was a
dues paying member. When I
was stationed overseas in the
military, I did not renew my,
membership. I received a letter
from the NRA pointedly' call-
ing me un-American. Me,

down the Soviets on the east

Somewhere along the line,
the NRA lost its way. When I
was growing up, automatic

the world actually needs a gun
that firps several bullets a sec-

o.f criminals?
NM\ freedom of speech rights'
,don't allow me to stand up and'

Letters...

Writers Urge Residents TO

Sign Development Petition


Dear Editor: .
Your recent articles reflect-
ing the growth and develop-
,ment coming to our beautiful
;city and county have prompted
:us to write this letter.
Local government officials
,have approved land use .re-
zonings and subdivisions with
little or no regard to the
needed infrastructures.
Infrastructure consists of
more than just water and sewer
issues. It takes in all aspects
of the city and county. It in-
cludes the environment, roads,
garbage, schools, police' pro-.
tection, medical, services, and.
the like.
Now department heads 'are
asking for the necessary fund-
ing to provide the services
needed for the increased den-'
'sity. Not enough money in the
budget? OOPS, forgot' that
part when we approved these
changes.'; .. : : '
We have attended public


hearings where citizens voiced
their concerns on these issues,
but as usual it Tfell on deaf ears.
The floodgates are open and
we will all pay dearly..
Please take note of the offi-
cials who are responsible for
these actions. '
It ma\ be too late to undo
the damage that will be caused
b. the lack of visioning on the
part of these commissioners.
but we may be able to put the
power back in the hands of the
people.
The Florida Supreme Court
has 'said voters in 2008 can de-
cide on a constitutional
amendment that would give
the, citizens the final say on
growth decisions. '
It would require that every
change in a local government's
comprehensive plan (the so-
called "blueprint" that deter-
mines growth and develop-
nient) be appro\ ed b\ voters in
a referendum.


Flag Law Needs Care


(Continued From Page 4)
though I'm not sure a constitu-
tional amendment is necessan'
Congressmen have proposed a
constitutional amendment be-
cause the United States Su-
preme Court in recent years
has struck down several state
laws against flag desecration.
In response some 50 states
have approved hon- binding
resolutions supporting a con-,
stitutional amendment.
I do not think flag desecra-
tion laws, if properly focused,.
are a violation of freedom of
speech. The Stars and Stripes,
when presented as a flag. is


symbol of American ideals. In
this way' it is monument no
different from any other public
depiction of our values. It
therefore could or should be
protected from harm just like
the Statue of Liberty or the
monuments, in Washington,
D.C. I see no inconsistency in
this. Protecting the flag is. a
wayvof %estin.' it with even
greater- symbols. Il's
important. \Vhen Red, White,
and Blue material is arranged
with stars and stripes, it's not,
just a piece of material any-
more. It's us. It's what webe- *
lieve.


St


Critics have blasted the pro-
posed amendment as an anti-
development measure.
That simply isn't true; it only
gives voters 'a choice if they
want more or less development
and where growth should be in
their city or county.
Instead of living at the,
Smercy of a handful ofe ommis-
; sioriers. citizens will be able.to

The Group Prenatal Care
Program is also linked with
the True Blue Doula Program.
Both programs are spon-
sored through the Healthy
Start Coalition of Jefferson,
Madison, and Taylor counties. -
whose mission is "Making'
positive changes in the lives
of mothers and children."...
The Doula Program pro-
vides labor and postpartum
services to all women residing
in the tri-county area for little
or no cost.
Studies have shown that the
presence of Labor Doulas can
shorten the length of labor, re-
sult in fewer complications,
and reduce the need for medi-
cations,i thereby reducing the
medical cost of having a
baby.
A Postpartum Doula will
help the family adjust to the
new infant by providing in-
formation and baby care and
feeding,' sibling adjustments,
exploring roles for dads, and
tending to the needs of a new
mom..
She will prepare a few
meals for the family, assist
with light household chores,
allow mom time to' get the
needed rest once she gets
home, and just be there to lis-
ten and provide a helping
,hand.
The program coordinator
-for; both programs, Cetta
Barnhart, says "We have a
wonderful team "of trained
Doulas who are'ready to serve
you.
"Every Doula is special and
unique and works. diligently
to ensure that each family has
..q. birtQ experience they will
:remember -t'ondly for a long
Lime."
For more information on the
Group Prenatal Care Program
or the Doula. Program, con-
