Go-Kart Track aining Fans
o K ,L .'.


Facility Holds Second

Statewide Cup Races


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior .Staff Writer

The Monticello Karting and
Motor Club go-kart racetrack
.on Big Joe Road continues
evolving' drawing participa-
tion from places as far away as
Atlanta, Miami, Jacksonville
and Pensacola.
Locally too, the number of
go karting adherents is grow-
ing, with the bulk of the par-
ticipants coming from
Tallahassee and its immediate
vicinity.
This growth,: moreover, is
occurring through only word
of .mouth so far, according to
Tim Phipps, founder and
owner of the racetrack, along
with partner Jean-Christophe
Courrege .. ...
The hope, says Phipps,
whose family formerly owned
WCTV Channel 6, is that the
facility eventually will be able
to host national and interna-
tional go-karting competitions.,
"We're not counting on it,
but we're not ruling it out ei-'
ther," Phipps says of the possi-'
bility of hosting an


international event.
He points out that Indy 500
champion Juan Pablo Montoya
designed the racetrack to inter-
national standards.
At the same time, however,
Phipps, acknowledges that the
competition for national and
international races is fierce,
with the more prestigious big
.city racetracks generally en-
joying an advantage.
No matter. Phipps and Cour- ,
reges are satisfy with the pro-
gress the racetrack has made
thus far.
"We're still taking baby
steps," Phipps says. ''That's
one of.the reasons that we're
riot advertising. We want to,
learn as we go."
Meanwhile, he. takes encour-
agement from the fact that go-
Skiing -is gaining recognition
and acceptance in, the United
States. '
"It's growing," Phipps' says.
"There's'a lot of demand for
new tracks. It's always been
big in Europe and Latin Amer-
ica, but like soccer, it's been
more of a training ground here.
It hasn't enjoyed, a lot of pres-
tige in America, but that's'.

The county's weatherization
program is now a thing of the
past, at least -for the time
being.
The County Commission last
month decided to withdraw
from the program, which aims
to make houses more energy
efficient by correcting flaws
that make the structures vul-
nerable to the weather.
* The decision to withdraw
from the program came at the
recommendation of Grants Di-
rector Roy Schleicher.
Schleicher told commission-
ers that the little money that
the program allowed to be


spent per houpe made the ef-
fort almost pointless.
In addition, he said, the
. county presently lacked per-
son to test the houses for pro-
gram eligibility.

Section 8 Now|
Back On Track '

The last weatherization grant
the county received was, in.
2004 and amounted to
$33,000. The program allows
$2,800 to be spend per house,,
including testing, bidding and
oversight.
"My recommendation is that
we withdraw. from the wea-
therization program until


changing."
He attributes the change in
large part to Americans' long-"
standing love affair with the'
automobile and %\ ith racing.
"Racing in general has taken
America by storm," Phipps,
says. "We can thank Nascar
for that. But it's also motor:
sports in general. America has
gone motor crazy. They even


ma) be later when we can hire
someone to do the testing and
oversight," Schleicher said.
In other housing related
news, Schleicher reported that
the Section 8 program -- which
subsidies the rents of economi-
cally qualified clients -- was
back on track.
Earlier this year, federal
auditors had found deficiencies
in the local program. Namely,
the auditors found that re-
certifications and visits to the
houses were, always being
done, as required by the rules.
Schleicher told commission-
ers that the federal people had
followed up with a fairly
comprehensive" corrective ac--

race, lawn mowers at some
events."
He himself got hooked on_
the sport when ,Courreges
bought a go kart and let Phipps
drive it. After that, .the two
regularly drove to Jacksonville
on weekends to drive the race-
track there, the closest in the
area at the time.
After a while, however, the_


physical demands of the long,
drives to Jacksonville, in con-
junction with the physical de-
mands of the sport, got to be
top much for their old bodies,
Phipps says.
That's when the two 'started-
talking about the possibility of
building a racetrack closer to
home. The rest, as they say, is
history.

Company Offers Door

To Door Trash Pickup


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

An independent, homegrown
company is now offering door-
to-door garbage pickup in the
county.

Trash Masters, 'Inc., in its
third month of operation, is the
brainchild of county residents
Tim Kercher and Steve Box,
both firefighters in-
Tallahassee.

The two say they got the
idea for the business when
they started thinking about the
rate of housing developments


here and the difficulty of ac-
cessing the established dump
sites, given the erratic hours
the latter are opened.
The two say the company is
licensed here and in Waukulla
County.

Trash Masters offers once a
week garbage pickup for $25 a
month. The fee is for pickup of
three 32-gallon cans or one 96-
gallon can.
So far, the company has
about 40 customers county-
wide.
Trash Masters will pick up
only household garbage. It

Phipps says the idea origi-
nally was to build a small-
track. But the idea evol ed, he
says, especially when Moniroa
got involved and designed a
world-class track.
Right now, the racetrack__
holds local races once a month.
and regional or statewide races
-- such as the Montoya .Cup
-that it hosted this past weekend
-- occasionally. It also holds a
.driving school 1 7 p.m.
Thursday through Friday.
r One thing that all participants
emphasize is the family-
oriented nature of the sport,
with parents and grandparents
often getting involved in the
general maintenance and
preparation of the go-karts, es-
pecially when younger chil-
dren competing.
"It's not a. solitary sport,"
Phipps says. "You come in
groups, either is business or
family groups. It's all about
camaraderie.., First you ,help
each other and then you com-
pete against each other;"
Ages of participants, can -
range, from 5 to 70 years or
older.
Phipps, however,, cautions
that the sport is physically de-
manding.

Local Support
Also Going Up

LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

At least two local youths
participated in Saturday's
Montoya Cup races at the-
Monticello Karting and Motor
Club go-kart racetrack on Big
Joe Road.
The Montoya Cup, named af-
ter Indy 500 champion Pablo
I Montoya, is a high stakes race
that draws, competition from
around the state. The winner of
the series, which ,ends next
month in south' Florida, gets an
opportunity to travel to Italy
later in the year and compete
I in the international races.
The two local participants --
10-year-old Drew Kimbrel and
12-year-old Curtis Lee Morgan
-- appear to be part of a yet"
small but growing number. of.
local participants.
"We're steadily getting more
local people," said Cindy-: ..
Hightower, Kimbrel's grand-
mother.
Kimbrel, who has been rac-
ing a little more than two
months, raced in the 60 cc
class on Saturday. The 60 cc
class if for ages nine to 12.
Morgan, meanwhile, started
go-karting about a month and
a half ago, according to his fa-
ther, Monty Morgan.
Curtis raced in the 100 cc
class on Saturday. The 100 cc
is for ages 12-15.
"This is his first big race,"
Monty Morgan said.
The other two classes are 50
cc, for ages five to nine; and
125 cc light and 125 cc heavy,
for ages 15 and up, depending
on weight.

Cuts May Harm


Imaging Access


Cuts to the Medicare budget
may be the most threatening
surgery of all for patients in
need of medical imaging serv-
ices.
Congress made deep cuts,
earlier this year in. reimburse-
,ment for many medical imag-
'ing services that Medicare pa-
tients receive in physician of-
fices and,independent imaging
centers
Experts fear these cuts will
'mean less access and, higher,
;costs for many patients, espe-
cially those in rural areas.
Congress, says advocates,
,should' impose a two-year
moratorium on the cuts in or-
der'to more fully understand
their impact on patients.
Starting in 2007, .imaging'
"services will be reduced by
;Congress by some,.$8; billion,
.over 10 years.: Those reduc-
,tions represent more than one--
third of the total Medicare cuts
in the 2005 Deficit Reduction
Act.
The payment reductions af-
fect a wide range. of medical
procedures and tests provided
in physician offices and imag-
ing centers. For example, re-.
imbursement would be cut:
35 percent for ultrasound
to guide less-invasive breast-
biopsies;
50 percent for% PET/CT
scans used for dia.-noing2 and
managing tumors; .
40 percent for bone density


studies for diagnosing osteopo-
rosis; and
42 percent for MR angi-
ography. that. detects aneu-
rysms in the head.
Given the size of ihese and
similar cuts, ad\ ocates warn
that many physicians will
likely discontinue or cut back
on the imaging they provide in
independent .imaging centers.
or their oWn offices. If this
happens, patients will' have to
seek these at.hostpitals."I
which can be. much further
away'and often involve higher
out-of-pocket costs for
patients. As a result, convep-
ient access to services that
many Medicare patients rely
on will no longer be ai aillible
. It's believed that patients in
rural areas are likely to be the
hardest hit.

Unfortunately, say advocates'
such as the Access to Medical
Imaging Coalition, these re-
ductions were made without
public hearings, public debate
or open discussion. The reduc-
tions were made without pub-
lic participation, even though
they will likely,affect the lives
of many Medicare beneficiar-
ies.

Instead, the Coalition be-
lieves Congress should impose
a two-year moratorium on im-
agihg cuts, so the Go% eminent
Accountability Office can
stud\ the issue. .-

-Opinion & Comment _



H ero Worship Alive, Wellr ,


I've always wondered why
people get so juiced up over
nmo\ie stars athletes, and"
country or rock stars.
Maybe I've been in the
newspaper business too lone,
and cynicism has set in.
I've seen my share of"stars
tp close and I always came
away disappointed. Sure, they
ma\ be great athletes or enter-
Stainers, but off the field or off.
stage many are self-centered'
pompous, moody, and selfish.
Besides, if I pay $35.00 to
see a concert, I except the star.,
to be good. A quarterback, in
the NFL who makes $10 mil-
lion ought to be good.
College' football coaches
- who earn a million or .nore
'oughi to be good at'what they
do.
So what's the big deal? Why
the hero worship?
SAh, but we're talking about
Americans here and we Ameri-
cans are famous for hero wor-
ship,
It doesn't even make any dif-
ference if they are dead or,
alive,, our heroes are still our
heroes.

Schools Need Parents' Help


By DENNIS FOGGY
Columnist


I am not only confused but-,
becoming down right angry
.about the misplaced under-
standing of what our public
educational institutions are,
supposed to be accomplishing.
I am aware that this sounds
like a stupid statement to the
general public, but I am speak-
ing from experience as a for-
mer public school teacher.
There is a serious misunder-
standing of the role of public
schools and public education'
in this country.
'We all know the obvious
purpose is to educate our chil-
dren. Primarily we want them
to be able to read, write and do
math proficiently. After that,
there is a myriad of subjects
that jockey for attention such-


|as history, 'social studies.
'civics. the various sciences.
'georaph\ and literature.
Thlen iheie aie te kess ini-
portant, but no less -significant
things like band, art, home
economics, shop and physical,
education.
If this were not enough,
many schools have injected
other subjects to maintain
some notion of political cor-
'rectness, like understanding
group dynamics, religious
teaching (where allowed by
the local public ),, religions of
the world, world sociology,
ethnic world ,history and for-
eign governments, etc.
Sorting out a sound curricu-
lum from this conglomerate of
subjects choices may not be an
eas\ task. .
-Depending on the educa-
tional, social and political bent
of the person making the deci-


sions, every school curriculum.
often ends up as diverse as the
students that attend. The fun-
damentals of math, language
arts, science arid history geog-
raphy will usually .remain
fairly constant. Everything, that
follows is usually decided at-
the local school levels good or
bad, depending upon your per-
spective and personal prefer-
ences.
Accordingly, many (if not:
most) parents don't have a clue
what is going on in their chil-
dren's school and classes. On
parent night, sometimes called
"open house", the parents I
ever saw represented those stu-
dents that were doing well in
school.
I didn't want to see these
folks.' I was looking for the
parents of. the failing or low
performing students so that to-,
gether, we could lay some
groundwork for improvement.


One serious misconception
about our public schools is that
they serve as a daycare facility
to watch over children and
give parents the opportunity to
do other things, like work. Just
hand the kids off to the school,
"you educate them", while I go
Off and do something else,
And when the system fails, the
schools, of course, are the
problem.
I rarely saw a student do well
in school when there wasn't
daily parental involvement..or
at least interest in the child's
academics. Parents need to un-
derstand that ."Parenting" also
requires their doing their part
at home to assist the school in
properly educating their child.
More disastrous for everyone
involved is the misguided legal
system. when it comes to un-
derstanding our education sys-

Immigration Bill Is Sellout


By TOM DEWEESE
Columnist

There are moments in history
when destiny is determined.
President Bush and U.S. Sen-
ate now face such a moment as
they determine. the course of
U.S. immigration policy. For
this is not simply a policy deci-
sion to be based on petty po-
litical maneuverings of the
day.
Ultimately they are deciding
the future of the United States


of America. Greatness divides .
the statesmen from the politi-
cal hucksters.
Last December, the U.S.
House of Representatives
passed an immigration reform
bill that takes several steps to
restore order from the chaos
that now defines America's
southern border.
,The bill calls for construction
of a security fence; it stream-
lines federal and local law en-"
forcement cooperation on im-
migration matters, specifically
allowing local police to arrest


illegals. And the House bill
mandates that employers ver-
ify the legal status of workers.
The bill passed the House
with strong bipartisan support.
The House took this action
because the current system is
broken. It dosen't serye the na-
tional or economic security in-
terests of our country.
Our porous borders and lax
interior enforcement create op-'
portunities for criminal
activity. The smuggling of ille-
gal aliens has become big busi-
ness for a criminal element.


The influx of these. illegals
are causing economic break-
downs in our neighbors, our
schools and our hospitals.
Smuggling of illegal drugs

dren.
Huge holes in the border al-
low potential terrorists who
seek to do us harm to come
and go at will, undetected.
At risk is the very make up,

nation as those who invade our
borders express no interest in

Legislators To Meet With


Retired State Employees


Dear Editor:
Recently, an article pub-
lished in the "Monticello
News" brought to the reader's
attention an action by the 2006
Florida Legislature .that raised
the family health insurance
premium for retired State
workers to more than $962 per
month. ,
It was pointed out that only
retired State workers suffered.
this huge increase which has


raised the cost of health care to
the point that it is out. of reach
for many retired State workers._
There is concern that our
current Legislature has no con-
science or at least its con-
science works only part time
when it benefits them.
Something has to be done to
help protect folks who have
dedicated a good portion of -
their lives to public service


and are in the later years of
their lives.
-I know for a certainty that
these retired folks are not go-
ing to take this huge premium
increase lying down.
The 2006 Legislature has
stirred up a hornet's nest
among the old folks.
In response, an organization,
has been created called the
Capital Alliance of Retired

tern and the role of schools.
Public schools retention facili-
ties for juvenile delinquents
and trouble makers.
It is downright criminal for,
some judge to believe it bene-
fits. society by requiring juve-
nile delinquents to attend
school as a probationary tactic
to keep them out of trouble.


don't want to ,be in school, in
the first place and the\ signifi-
cantly disrupt the organized
flow of the educational process,
for the other students and
teachers.
I ha\e countless examples of'
this judicial acutlism. I recall a
twelve year old student being
assigned to our teaching team.
He 'was heine "'adminitrra-,


because of his age. although he-
had rarely amended school ord
passed any subject in the past
several years. He had been ar-i
rested and a" judge ordered-
him to attend school eter\da\ I
or be sent to a judicial deten--
tion facility. '
Now this was a mean kid
Swho disrupted the entire team.
of students with his bullying
and intimidation. .All he
wanted to was be out on the
'street robbing houses. When
his o\ert disruptive behavior
did not set him removed from
school, without provocation,
:he just decked some sixth
'grader walking down the hall
.and broke his nose. He was
smart enough to know that this
would, get him expelled.,
Thanks judge!
S\\e desperately need parents
to realize that schools: are not
simply. a form' of daycare and
that the future of their child in
the ne\t generation is in their
hands. They need to start do-,
ing their job at home to sup-
plement the teacher's efforts in
fostering, theirL child's educa-'
tion and'notexpect the schools
to do it all.
Secondly, and of great im-
portance we need judges to
understand that placing juve-
nile delinquents and trouble
makers in the midst of kids
trying to get an education, is a.
tremendous disruption 'and
counter productive. Without
these things happening, public
schools will continue to strug-
gle to meet even the basic edu-
cational standards.

.assimilating as has literally
.every other immigrant move-
ment in the nation's history.
Truly we are ,at a crossroads
for the. future make up of this
nation.
The House did a rare thing in
today's 'political atmosphere
by passing its immigration re-
forn act.
It took actionin response to
massive outcries of more than
80 percent of the American
people' who "are demanding
that something be done to stem
the in\ asion of illegals. _
Even rarer, it has stuck by its
guns in support of the bill as
hundreds of thousands of ille-,
gals and their supporters
marched in the streets against
it; as the White House derides
it: and the Senate ignores it.
Statesmen look beyond their
own political needs and 'con-
sider those of the nation as a
whole .
The House took the action'
.that %%as necessary, though,
many considered such strong
action politically incorrect and
even dangerous to political ca-.
reers.
Not so in the United States
Senate. On Ma3 25th, the Sen-
ate passed its 'own "compre-
hensive reform" bill, which,
bore little resemblance to the
House version. It bares even
less relationship to anything
the o erwhelming majority of
'Americans demanded. -
on, the day the Senate bill,
, was passed, California Con-
gressmanr Dana Rohrabacher,
angrily told the House "The


.bill that passed the-' United
States Senate is tra\esrt. It is a
cruel hoax on the American
people, using the title "Immi-
gration" to let people think that
something is being done that
will in some 'way curb this
massive influx of millions of
foreigners into our country. It
will not. It will make the situa-
tion worse, and an\ rational
analysis of the bill will lead to
that conclusion."
The Senate bill, far from do-
iing afythinig to curb illegal iim-
migration, opens the doors to
'encourage more. As Rep.'
Rohrabacher said, "This
'shamnesty' bill spells out the
le'el of contempt the Senate
has for middle-class Ameri-
.cans. '
Meanwhile, President Bush is
on an all out campaign to con-
vince" us .that the Senate bill.
does not provide amnesty. And
that the bill simply helps some
good honest folks become
American citizens in search of
the Ameiican freedom.,
The President speaks of a
"solemn obligation of the fed-'
eral go% ernment" to secure our,
borders. He makes a big show'
of. sending National Guard
troop to the border. Yet just a
few months ago he said build-
ing a wall was "impractical "
Obviously he is talking out
of both sides of his mouth as:
he tries to quietly .implement
an immigration police that'
Complies with both interna-
tional agreements he. has
signed on to and with personal
assurances he has given Nle\i-
can President Vicente Fo\ thai
the border between the two
.countries will be eliminated.

with residents from, the Part-
nership for Food Safety Edu-
cation stressing that "ready to
cook" is ,not the same as
"..read', to eat "
Despite the convenience of
the variety of frozen poultry
products available today, many
of these are stuffed with
cheese or other fillings, and
though the, nay be breaded,
or appear cooked or bro'w ned,
they are still raw.
Pay attention to the labels on
frozen products arid follow.
cooking/serving directions.
If a product is labeled "cook
and servee" "ready' to cook," or
"oven ready," it must ,be
cooked to a safe minimum in-
temal temperature of 165 de-
grees, in order to be safe to. eat.
Poultry products stuffed with
additional ingredients may -
take longer to reach this safe
minimum internal temperature,
than those %% which do not con-
tain filling.
Use a food thermometer to
measure, the internal tempera-
ture of foods.
Stuffed chicken breasts, such
as chicken cordon bleu, should,
be cooked to' an internal tem-
perature of 165 degrees.
If cooking in a microwave,
follow the directions on the
product package and the direc-


tions for your microwave.

Jefferson County Big Bend-
Hospice (BBH) will offer a
two day training session for
patient volunteers 9 a.m.to 4
p.m., Thursday and Friday,
Aug. 24 and 25, at the library.
"Being a volunteer is not for
everyone," said Ginger___
Hodges, a BBH volunteer.
"It is for those who want to
share a very special time and
to give compassion, support.
and comfort to patients.
S"A team nurse, home health
aide and family support coun-
selor provide the professional
support the patient needs and
I provide, the companionship
and support needed."
The' training session offers
all the background a volunteer
needs to support the volunteer
in helping BBH patients'and
to meet all the 'state and' fed-
eral requirements of being a
patient volunteer.
Volunteers are asked to
make a one-year commitment.
"BBH pro\ ides initial train-
ing. quarterly update sessions.,

does the need for trained vol-

From visiting homes, nurs-

being a telephone-buddy, vol-
unteers make up the heart and
soul ofBBH.
In 1986, hospice services be-
came a Medicare reimburs-
able benefit.
When this became effective,
the 'federal government re-
quired that volunteers provide
5 percent of all hands-on pa-

BBH exceeds this, averag-
ing 8-10 percent.
Volunteers, at BBH ranges
in age from 18-90 something.
Some are college students
who originally were looking
for a few volunteer hours and
end up staying act\ e through-,

Some are sta'-at-home
moms looking for something
rewarding to do with free
hours, and business persons,
who manage to squeeze BBH
into their already cramped'
schedules.
Some are retirees looking
to enrich their retirement

Though it has been two-
months since the beating and
armed robbery of prominent
citizen, Franklin Hightower,
City Police wait impatiently
for the results of analysis of
forensic evidence sent to the
FDLE Crime Lab in Tallahas-
see.
"We don't have a CSI unit
here like they.do on TV, and
we are not trained in


forensics, so no one here can
do it. We can take photos of
the crime scene and process a
body for fingerprints, but
that's about it.
"We can't process blood or
, fiber, nor even process any
-fingerprints we lift from a
crime scene." said Springer.
"No one is more; frustrated
than we are at this point," said
MPD Sgt. Investigator Chip
Springer'
He explained that some-
counties, such as Leon,, have
their own forensic lab and are


qualified and trained to ana-
lyze any evidence, so they.
don't have to wait for anyone
else to process it.
Springer said that there
have been occasions in which
it has taken almost one year
tor departments to receive the
results of any forensics in a
case, because the. incoming
cases are processed according
to priority.
"I know the Hightower case
is pretty high on the totem
pole, but if one or several ho-
mocides come in, Hightower
will be bumped down," said
Springer.
He assured the community
that MPD is still diligently
working on the case.
"We will never drag our
feet on it,." he concluded.
