Resident Urging Expansion


Of Animal Control Program


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

One of two .cize.is' groups
responsible foi implementation
of the animal control ordi-
nance is urging county com- -
missioner's to expand the pro-
gram.
Bobbie Golden, of Responsi-
ble Pet Owners, approached
the County Commission last
week to explore the possibility
of officials expanding the pro-
gram's criteria to include nui-
sance animals.
Golden told commissioners
that the present program was
doing well, as far as it went.
But it needed to go further, she
said.
Golden related instances of
dogs going on private property
and attacking livestock. Often,
when the afflicted party com-
plained to the trespassing ani-
mal's owner, the former met
with hostility, she said.
Why, if it was known that
certain animals were prone to
trespassing and doing harm,
couldn't these animals be


picked 'up and the owners
fined? Golden wanted to.
know.
"In these instances, we did,
n't see the dog growl or bite
anyone, but we have a pretty


good idea of what he did," she
said, adding that dogs were the
only animals ,that were allowed
to roam Willyy nilly".
"Cows, horses and other
animals can't roam and do as

they please," Golden said.
Commissioners expressed
reluctance to expand, the pro-
grami, at least for the time be-
ing:
Commissioner Jerry Sutphin,
a former, deputy, compared
picking up dogs -- or taking
them into custody as he put it
-- on mere suspicion a form of
"profiling", which he said was
"against the law."
More to the point,. Sutphin
argued that the program had
come a long ways in a short
period, given the 'county's
fiscal constraints and limited
personnel.
Were the county to add the
language Golden requested,
the staff would be
overwhelmed with complaints,
he said.
Commissioner Junior Tuten
agreed.
"If .we go to nuisance
animals,- it will multiply by
1000 times what we're doing
right now," Tuten said. "And
we don't have the facility or
the personnel to handle that.
The glass is half full now..We

With the qualification period
.officially over 'last week, it's
now clear that die. Clerk of
Court elk-cti0n vx. ill be the only
local race on the ballot in No-
vember. .
Elections, Supervisor NM.ii',
Bishop reported N.1ndJ'i, that
in six of nine local offices up
for reelection, ithe incumibeints
face no opposition.
That leaves three local of-
fices that are being contested,
Bishop said: And two. of these
will be decided in the Septem-
ber primary, he said.
The incumbents, facing no
opposiin are Bobby Plaines,
Counrl, Jlud-c, Gene. ...Hl.al,,
County Commission, District
2; Feli\ Skeet Joyner, County
Commission,; District 4; Bev-
erly Sloan, School Board, Dis-
trict 2; Gerrold Austin, City
Council,, Group 1; and Tom
Vogeligeangj, City, Council,
Group 2.
The two offices that will be
decided in September are .the
School B.jid races in disirici's
3 and 5. School Board races
are nonpartisan.
In the School Board, District
3 race, the candidates are Fred
Shofner, incumbent, and Shir-
ley Washington, challenger.
In the School Board, District
5 race, the. candidates are


Chtarle-. Boland, incumbent,
and Z:jandra Gilley, challenger.
That leaves the Clerk of
Court race, with four, candi-
dates vying for the office. The
four are Daniel Jones, Demo-
crat; Wendy' Moss,
Republican; Kirk Reams,
Democrat; ahd Brenda
Sorensen; No Party Affiliation
(NPA),
Bishop said Jones and
Reams ,t ill face off in the Sep-
teinbei priimar. The winner
here will then face Moss and
Sorensen in November.
Bishop said voters need to
remember ithat legisljion
adopted in 2005 requires that
they present photo and signa-
ture identification when they
vote. Qtherwise,'they will have
to cast a pr, is'i:'n.il ballot, he

"This entails fillingL out a
certificate, signing it, and plac-
ing the ballot in an en' elope,"
Bishop said. "No longer can an.
affirmation form be.signed and
then the ,voter is allowed to
vote: This will take more time
at the polling place, so please,
have a photo ID when you go
to vote.". '
He said a driver's license,
Florida ID or such will do.
Bishop said voters whose
signatures have changed need
to visit his office and update
the information or call 997-
3348 and request that a' signa-
ture update form. be mailed to'
them.

Chamber, EDC Asking County For More


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

Two organizations that pro-
mote the county and economic
vitality are asking for increases
in their operating budgets.
The two are the Chamber of
Commerce and the Economic
Development Council (EDC).
The chamber is asking for a
$9,000 increase, from the.
$6,000 the county contributed


last year to $31,000 for the
coming year.
Chamber President Mary
Frances Gramling told com-
missioners the chamber was
getting busier and busier every
year, to the point that it was
necessary to hire part-time
help. She said the organization
could no longer rely strictly on
volunteers to. get the work
done.
She said the $9,000 would
probably go for salary of a 20-


hour person.
The EDC, meanwhile, is ask-
ing for $38,700, an increase of
$7,700 over last year's county
contribution of $31,000.
Actually, the EDC increase,
is $13,700, given that $6,000
of last year's contribution was
specifically earmarked for pro-
motion of the tourist tax the
organization is trying to get
voters to approve in
November.
EDC Director Julie Conley


CONLEY
told commissioners that her or-


ganization had come a long
ways since its inception in
1999.
Two things, however, had
-remained constant since that
time, she said. One was that
the organization had never lost
its passion for promoting the
county. The second was that it
had never been properly
funded.
Commissioners promised to
give. both the chamber and
EDC requests due considera-


fundingg
tion during the budget formu-
lating process.
At the same time, commis-
sioners started talking about
the possibility of making the
EDC -- a public/private part-
nership presently funded by
the city, county and private-en-
terprise -- into a county depart-
nment.
Commissioners expressed
general support for the idea,
provided the details could be
worked out.

With qualifying over on Fri-
da,, voters now have a choice
"to make in eight offices come
-the Sept 3 primary. The eight
contested offices are: Clerk of
-Court, Property Appraiser, Su-
pei %isir 'of Elections, County
'Commission (Districts I and
3); School Board (Districts 1
-.-.and 4) and County Judge.
Although many of the goals:
;Sheriff Ken Fortune set when"
he first came to .office have
been achieved, others yet re-
.inain to be realized. It is this ,
he says, that motivates him to
seek a fourth term.
After one hour and forty-
^five minutes of discussion by a
standing room only audience,
:the School Board Monday
voted unanimously to imple-
nment the wearing of school
'uniforms for grades, five

Animal Shelter Director


Presents List Of Needs


Incoming Animal Shelter
Director Xan Holton and cur-
rent Shelter Caretaker Cheryl
Bautista, presented a current
list of needs for operation of
the shelter, at a recent Hu-
mane Society meeting this
month.
"We need another full-time
employee," said Holton.
"One full time and one part
time person can't do all the re-
quired work."
Member George Carswell
agreed. "I totally agree," he
said. "Cheryl (Bautista) is the
reason we .are where we are
today, at the shelter. But she
has been abused.
'One person just can't do all
that work alone, she got
burned out," Carswell added.
The board unanimously
agreed to hire a second full
time employee. Holton said
she would begin looking for
one immediately.
Members were also advised
that rather than the original-
date of Sept. 1, Bautista's fi-
nal day as caretaker will be


Aug. 15, when she will move
to join her husband in Califor-
nia.
Also needed at the shelter,
was the removal of an old air
conditioner, and repair of the
current window units.
"We need the telephone line
replaced," said Bautista. "The
one there has been there since
the shelter opened years ago,
and our phone doesn't work
more than half of the'time.
"We also need fence repair
and have to talk to the City
about removing the kudzu,"
said Holton.
Carswell advised, her to
contact City Worker Franklin
Hightower.
Bautista advised that electri-
cal repairs were needed in the
kitten trailer and the pump
station at the intake.
Carswell said he would talk
with, Steve Richards to. see if
he would perform the work.
Bautista said the shelter also
required a new mail box.
"Someone hit thie old one, to-
tally destroying it and render-


ing it useless," she said.
Seven large plastic storage
bins with lids and a storage
building were also requested.
Carswell advised that he
was currently seeking the do-
nation of the storage building
and he would also get the
bins. Holton added, "As soon
as we get the building, we can
start getting the free dog and
cat food."
Susan Taylor said, "We can
also start getting more free cat
litter."
Other required items in-
cluded small gravel for the
driveway, storage containers,
indoor/outdoor paint, tild ad
hesive, shower board and
baseboards for the kennel.
Carswell said he would con-
tact Junior Tuten for the'
gravel, and he (Carswell)
would take care of acquiring
the paint, adhesive, shower
board and baseboards.
The Board agreed tunani-
mously that the listed items
were required.
