Long Lost Ring Found;


Sparks Sleuthing Effort


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

It's one of those little gems
of a story that surfaces every
once in a while.
Literally.
This .. one involves the dis-
covery of a long lost ring, a
sleuthing effort by city offi-
cials and others to discover the
rightful owner, and the happy
return of the ring to a relative
of the rightful owner.
Or maybe not.
It all started with the work
crew that's running a small
television camera through the
city's sewer lines in order to
pinpoint. areas where water is


infiltrating the system -- part
of a large and costly sewer re-
pair project.
Somewhere along the sewer
line on Pearl Street, the work
crew came upon a gold, 1927
Monticello High class ring.
Of course the workers didn't
know it was a 1927 Monticello
High class ring right away (it.
took cleaning the ring and put-
ting it under a magnifying
glass to decipher the fine
print). But what they did know
almost immediately was that
they had something pretty spe-
cial.
Turns out the ring had the
initials MEW on the inside.
Here is where the sleuthing
came in and involved several


people -- including Emily An-
derson, Dr. Jim Sledge, Bill
McRae and Mary Budd Hol-
mes.
Someone remembered that a
Wilson family' had lived on
Pearl Street in the 1i920s. A
search of the high school re-
cords circa the 1920s revealed
the name of a Margaret Emily
Wilson.
More research showed Mar-
garet Emily Wilson, born in
1909, had lived on Pearl
Street. Which put her at the
right place and the right age to.
be graduating from Monticello
High in 1927.
,Eureka!

-Senior Staff Writer


City officials on Tuesday
night tentatively set the mil-
lage rate at' 7.5 mills, an in-
crease of half a point over last
year's rate of 7.0 mills.'
The officials, emphasized
that they would continue to
crunch the budget numbers in
the coming weeks i%.ith the 7.0
mills in mind, in hope that they
could ultimriately adopt the
., .lev. er rate. ,
But faced with skyrocketing
costs in fuel, insurance and
materials, some. couldn't see
where the council could afford
the lo\ er rate.
Indeed, as things stand now,
the city faces an $80,000 gap
between its needs/wish list and
d -its expected income if the 7.0
Skills rate is adopted.
s Councilman Tom Vogelge-
sang was one who argued for a
higher millage rate, given the
expected expenses and in-
creases that the city faces.
He suggested a rate as high
as 18 mills, pointing :out, that.
.once announced, the village
rate can always be adjusted
downward at the public hear-
ings, but never upwards.
Supposed they set the mil-
lage rate low and then discov-
ered in the coming budget
workshops that it wouldn't
generate the needed revenues?
he asked.
But others, including Coun-
cilman Luther Pickels, argued
for restraint.
"I don't want us to think that'
we always have to 'raise reve-
nues," Pickels said. "There's
always something such as cut-
ting expenses."
And Mayor Julie Conley
voiced concern about raising
ad valorem taxes simply to
fund private organizations. She


didn't mind contributing to
private groups, she said. But
not if it meant raising property
taxes to do it. Several private
groups, including WILD li-
'braries and the Refuge House,
are asking the city for contri-
butions.
In the end., consideration
of the need to balance the.
budget prevailed, with the
council agreeing to the com-
promise 7.5 mills for the time
being.
City Clerk Emily Anderson
explained AWednesda,, that
proper insurance is expected
to double across the board next
year. She said the city paid
$150,000 last year for all its
insurance'needs. But this year,
the city is budgeting $210,000
in anticipation of the increase,
she said.

A recap of the city's draft
budget for the coming year
shows that total combined esti-
mated revenues are
$3,939,457, compared with to-
tal combined estimated ex-
penses of $4,016,363, for a
deficit of $76,906
The recap sho~ s that in the
general fund, total revenues
are projected to be $1,967,057,
including $36,500 in grants
earmarked for special projects.
Discounting the $36,500 in
grants, the general fund is
$1,930,557, which is $142,228
higher than last year's reve-
nues of $1,788,329.
Accounting in part for the
higher revenues in the general


"And that's pretty conserva-
tive," Anderson said. "'t could
be higher." .
Rising fuel and electrical
costs are another area of con-
cern.
"Fuel costs has hit us really
hard because we have so many
vehicles," Anderson said.
"Electricirt too is going up.
.We budgeted 10 percent more
this year. Maybe $35,010 total
for fuel and electricirN."
The cost of materials too' is
going up.
"What hurts us in particular
is pipes, fittings and materials
for the construction of sewer
and water lines," Anderson
said. "We just ordered a lot of
water r pipes because we v ere
notified that the price is going
up 30 percent."

more is being added to the
sewer and water accounts to

valorem taxes, projected to be
$564,087 for the coming year,
up from $491,739 last year;
electricity franchise fees --
projected to be $144,000, up
from $116,000 last year; and
electricity utility tax -- pro-
jected to be $186,000, up from
$161,000 last year.
At the same time, other reve-
nue sources within the general
fund are projected to bring in
less than they did last year.
Among the latter are the one-
cent local option sales tax,
down to $145,700 from the
$164,000 it brought in, last
year; and the communications
services tax, down to $141,500

City Postpones Hearing On

Rezoning 420-Acre Property


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

The City Council on Tues-
day night postponed until next
month a hearing on a Compte-
hensive Plan Amendment re-
zoning 420.30 acres in the
southwest quadrant of the city.
The affected property con-
sists of two parcels. One
parcel, which was already in
the city, is made up of 129.41
acres. The second parcel,
which was annexed recently, is
made up of 290.89 acres.
The proposed amendment re-
zones the combined property


to residential low density
(RLD), which is a lower den-
sity than it presently has. The
developer, moreover, has en-
tered an agreement with the.
city to limit the number of
units to a maximum of 450.
The issue that caused Tues-
day night's postponement was
the request of Monticello Plan-
tations, LLC, that it be allowed
to submit one exhibit of the
combined property, as opposed
to the three exhibits mentioned
in the amending ordinance.
Alan Saucier, who repre-
sented the developer, said the
intent of the request was to
simplify the process for the



sake of the Department of
Community Affairs (DCA),
which must review and ap-
prove the amendment.
City Attorney Bruce Lein-
back, however, felt uncomfort-
able with the request, as did
Councilman Brian Hayes.
Their discomfort, in the words
of Leinback, rested on "the
rigid statutory requirements of
hearings."
Meaning that the two wor-
ried that the city could possi-
bly opened itself to challenge,
should it deviate in the least
from strict adherence to the re-
quirements.

CLAY THOMPSON, the engineer for Monticello Plantations, LLC, addresses the Coun-
cil on Tuesday night. Thompson said the development was a five to 10 year project.

Rogue Nations Get Notice

I had an interesting conter-
sation with a stranger at

pened to be talking about bags
of cement and the topic, as it
usually does, turned to other
things.y I could tell right off
that, this guy, a 'former. Navy
A-7 jet pilot was very bright
and knowledgeable :
After we had kicked around
the Gaza Strip, Iran, North Ko-
rea, and terrorism, he made a -'
very interesting statement. He
said, "If you and I can stand
here at Lowe's and clearly un-
derstand the problems, what
the heck is going on in "Wash-

calling'for the U.S. to bomb
Noith Korea's rockets on the
launch pads. Nonsense, why
.offer the American haters an'
oppoi unitt, to.-point out our
aggressive nature?
I could care less if North Ko-
rea has missiles with nuke
warheads. What. would they
ever risk doing with long range
missiles that would not result
in the total annihilation for
their country?
It's like the gui. down the

Trying to stop,, or redirect
these rogue countries from do-
ing anything, short of all out
military action, is impossible
without the full cooperation of
our regional friends, like,
China, Russia, South Korea
and Japan, in the case of North
Korea. "'Friends"! China and
Russia are in bed with North
Korea, even South Korea and
Japan are reluctant to press for
any meaningful diplomatic
resolutions. The, problem is
that these "friends" have not
yet had their significant terror-
ist 9/11.
Personally, I would care less


about wasting valuable time
arguing over a couple more
.courities having nuclear capa-
bilities if it weren't for those

, ning around trN ing to kill all of
us infidels. They raise the ante
far above accepting tolerance
for possessing such deadlvyex-
portable weapons by rogue
countries that despise America
and all freedom lo\ ing nations.
What is most discouraging is
our ineptitude in gather power-
.ful support from the worlds'
other great nations. With the'
exception of Great Britain, and
to some degree, Australia and

understand the tremendous
danger that terrorism poses.

Kids' Health Issues Eyed


A new program may help
improve the lives of children
with disabilities- and help"
them better manage their
health.
Sixty-six percent of adults
with disabilities are not very
satisfied with their lives; 78
percent are unemployed; and
they have increased health
concerns including greater
susceptibility to additional
health problems.
However, a new DVD may
help improve the future out-
look tor children with disabili-
ties. Called "Fit for the
Future," it addresses two of the'


most important issues facing
people with disabilities today:
health and employment.
The DVD was released by
Shrines Hospitals for Children
and The Federal Bureau of In-.
vestigation (FBI).
"Fit for the Future" is meant
to be a unique, innovative pro-
gram that fills a void in avail-
able materials.
The DVD includes three 20-
to 30- minute, upbeat, kid-
friendly exercise routines-
stretching, strengthening and
stamina- that can be done
seated or standing.
The exercise portion of the
DVD features patients and


therapists from the tampa
Shriners Hospital, as well as
FBI personnel from Tampa,
Fl., Washington, D.C. and
Quantico, Va.
The program also includes
informational sections on the
Shriners fraternity, Shriners
Hospitals for Children and The
FBI.
The DVD has a second,
equally important message of
potential future employment.
Statistically, people with dis-
abilities have the highest un-
employment rate (around 70
percent). Learning that the FBI
specifically wants to hire peo-
ple with disabilities could be a


tremendous source of encour-
agement for kids with disabili-
ties.
While designed primarily for
children with' orthopaedic dis-
abilities, "Fit for the Future" is
an exercise program virtually
everyone can use. The exercise
routines featured are general
and basic enough to offer a
starting point for a fitness regi-
men.
There is a growing aware-
ness of the importance of pro-
viding exercise opportunities
for people with disabilities.

featuring children with dis-

MPD Investigator Chip

a versionn of the "Nigerian
Lener" scam, has surfaced in
Monticello.
He said that early in Jul\, a.
city resident received 'a letter
from "Northern Trust, Inc.",
notifying her that she was en-
titled to .an unclaimed gam-

"Enclosed was a check for

said Springer. -.She was di-

He said the intended victim
was able to cash the check at
a local bank, and a short time
later, the bank discovered that
the check was counterfeit.

just fall right into place."

the team this year, have been
learning a new system, get-
ting to know the coaches and
what is expected of them both
individually, and as a team, as
well as agility, flexibility, and
weight training.,
Thomas said that due to los-
ing a lot of players this year


due to grades, and two good,
Tiger prospects transferring to
other schools, residents can
probably look to see more.

year.

lot out of him this year,", said
Thomas.

sive and defensive lineman;
and new to the Tigers, Marcus
Benjamin, former HMS start
player, as backup quarterback
and starting receiver. "I also
