Farmers and .Merchants
Bank (FMB) is planning a
celebration on Saturday, Aug.
26, to mark the 100th anniver-
sary of its formation in 1906.
As described by FMB Senior

City Also Adopts Senior

Friendly State Initiative


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

The city now also has signed
onto the Communities for a
Lifetime Initiative being pro-
moted by the Florida Depart-
ment of Elder Affairs (DEA).
Janine Rogers, DEA commu-
nity relations coordinator, pre-
sented the request to the City
Council last week.
Rogers asked city officials to
adopt a resolution supporting
the statewide initiative that


seeks to make Florida commu-
nities more senior friendly in
the future. County officials
adopted the same resolution
last month.
The resolution asks decision
makers to commit to making
and implementing policies that
enhance the health, cultural,
spiritual and recreational needs
of their communities' growing
senior population. -
Statistics show that the eld-
erly will soon outnumber the
young, a consequence of the
(See Seniors, Page 3)


But the main celebration, ac-
cording to Boatwright, willI
' take .place. Saturday, from 7'
p.m. until 10:30 p.m. or so, de-
pending on the crowd. He said
all activities are free, opened to
the public, and take place in
front of the main FMB build-'
ing on Washington St..
The activities begin with a
performance by Coates &
Company a big band sr-le
group that will play that era's
sounds for about an hour or an
hour and half.
Folloit ing Coates & Cornm-
pany's performance will come
various proclamations in honor
of the occasion by bank, city.
and-county officials, as well as,
the fireworks display.
The ever popular Encore will
then perform, closing out the
festivities with their brand of
rock and country music..
During and in-between the
bands' performances will be
games, train rides for the kids,
and free slices of apple pie and-
ice cream, among other things.
City officials have author-
ized the closing of Cherry and
Waukeenah streets for the fes-.
tivities.
Formed on Aug. 28, 1906 in
Monticello, FMB didn't actu-
ally open its doors until Janu-
ary, 1907. Besides being a
homegrown organization, the
bank also enjoys the distinc-
tion of being in continuous op-
eration since its opening.
Even during the officially
declared bank holiday in the
Great Depression, the bank re-
mained opened, according to
Boatwright.
The reason, he explained, is
that the notification instructing
banks to close didn't arrive at
FMB until after the bank's
normal closing hour.
FMB resides in its original
location, although the building
has undergone at least three
renovations. Three different
families have owned the insti-
tution since its founding.
FMB today has eight offices.
These are located in Tallahas-
see, Thomasville and Green-
ville, with Monticello still the
main bank.

SAnluersoni UU LI t partly Uy
transferring funds within' the
accounts. She also calculated
the budget based on a 7.5 mil-
lage rate, up half a point from
last year's millape rate of 7.0.
The $36,866 shortfall, she-
pointed out,' was due to poor
performance in the water and,
sewer operations, \\Ihich are
supposed to be self-sustaining
accounts.
The $36,.66 also represented
'a three percent pay raise for
city employees and a four per-
",cent salary increase for police
officers, she said. .
City Superintendent ..Don'
Anderson provided the solu-
tion for the elimination of the
$36.866 shortfall.
Anderson .recommended
elimination of a pickup truck
purchase and reduction of cer-
tain funding for a contractual
service and a water program.
All told, the three items
amounted to $40,000 -- some,
'$3,000 over what was needed
to balance the budget.
Not everyone was satisfied
with simply balancing the
budget, however. Councilman
Tom Vogelgesang thought the
budgeting task deserved fur-
ther effort.
Specifically, he wanted to
scrutinize various items in the
budget and determine where, if
anywhere, improvements
could be made.
That brought a reaction from
the city superintendent.
"Why are we rehashing
this?" Anderson asked, point-
ing out that the matter had al-
ready been discussed thor-
oughly in previous meetings
and settled via the elimination
of the $40,000.
But Vogelgesang argued that
simply balancing the budget
wasn't enough; the council
should look ahead and correct
problematic areas and imple-
ment improvements wherever
possible, he said.
"If we're not running a
clean, lean machine, we
shouldn't be asking for a dol-
lar moree" Vogelgesang said.
He pointed to overtime pay,
which he said was on the in-


crease from last year. Was the
overtime legitimate? Vogelge-
sang asked. In other words,
was it being documented and
supervisor approved?
Superintendent Andersoni as-
sured Vogelgesang that the
overtime was justified and 95
percent of it involved after-
hour emergencies. But if Vo-
gelgesang wanted documenta-
tion, "how detailed do you
want it?" Anderson asked,
slightly testy.
Monthly reports would do
fine, Vogelgesatig responded.

Vogelgesang .also thought

centrate on fuel efficiency,
thus conserving energy and
combating rising fuel costs as
much as possible.
Police officers in particular
came in for attention, given
their tendency to leave their

gating complaints or perform-

'"I've got a feeling that most

The problem, it appears
now, may actually be with the

is no easy matter, however, as

Pair Bikes Through City To


Raise Funds For Leukemia


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

A determined pair of young -
men, who left San Diego, CA
May 16, en route to St.
Augustine to raise funds for
the Lelikemia and Lymphoma
Society, passed though NMon- '
ticello earlier this week.. '
The y6ung men, Sean Ryan
and Nick Blankenburg, have
averaged 50 miles, per day,
making only 11 miles one day
when their course was strictly
up hill, and 86 miles on their.
best day.
, Near the beginning of their
journey, the van which hauled
their equipment, supplies. and
Blankenburg's wheelchair,
broke down on two occasions,
leaving them stuck for a few
weeks awaiting repairs.
Ryan leads the way in his
specially rigged cycle, pull-
ing Blankenburg behind him.
Blankenburg, who was in a
dar accident at the age of 1-7,
wyas left a quadiiplegic be-
cause of an injury.
He was paralyzed from the
chest down with partial use of
one arm. Doctors thought he
would be dependent on a res-
pirator for the rest of his life,
but after only a few weeks, he
was able to breathe on his
own.
The pair set out to raise
ftnds in memory of a dear
friend, BJ Carlson, who
passed away last year.
The trio had been friends
since elementary school and
Carlson, was in a school bus
accident in 1996; which' left
him with an injury similar to
Blankenburg's.
Carl Blankenburg, Nick's
father, and Will Orr, Sean's
cousin, are among the many
friends and family members
who have rotated throughout
the quest, and helped the pair
out along the way.
"This wouldn't be possible
without them," said Blanken-
burg.
"We wanted to push our
limits, go bigger and better
than we had ever done before,


testing our endurance and per-
severance," said Ryan. "We
Wanted to do something that
would push us so that : we
could overcome life's hurdles.
together.
"We also wanted to share
this experience with, others,"
he said. "We w\ant to inspire
children 'to dream as we once
did; '.' ..., '
"We want to motivate those
who are on that rocky road of
life and -give them the
strength 'to persevere and to
pursue and -achieve their
dreams.
"We want to show others
that their dreams are still
within their reach, despite
whatever adversity they may,
face," Ryan added.
"We will show all of those,
people who thought we were
crazy, the power of a dream
and a little determination,"
said Blankenburg.
"We will share BJ's mes-
sage with" others, that a spinal
cord injury is far from the
end, but rather, a whole new
beginning. We will help oth-
ers with similar disabilities to .


start dreaming big once'
again."
.The motto of the pair is
Dream it; Do it, and they are
known as Bike For BJ.
Ryan and Blankenburg
both come from the commu-
nitN ofFlagsrtaff, AZ. and it is,.
in coming from a small corn-
'munity, that has taught them 'i
the generosity, of others, ,the
kindness of strangers, and the
importance of giving back.
Their goal is to raise
$30,000 for the Leukemia and'
Lymphoma Society, to date,
they have raised $15,000.
Ryan predicted Tuesday
morning, that by day's end,
they should arrive in, Live
Oak.
"We have less than a week
to go," Ryan said.
The pair agrees, "Any dis-
ease that can take our children
away from us before they can
ever see the inside of a class-
room, deserves' outr every ef-
fort to eradicate it."

Wind Power


Energy Source


_ pinion & Comment


In today's economy, with.
America's increasing con-
sumption of electricity and
natural resources, the possibil-
itR of an inexpensive. renew-
able' and reliable energy source
is seen b\ consumers as a
breath of fresh' air. That's
where wind energy comes in.
According to the Department
of Energy, modern wind tur-.
bines can convert, winds -in
most U.S. 'states and coastal
waters into reliable, clean elec-
tricity.
While wind today provides
only a small percentage of our
national electricity needs, it is
an immense homeland energy
resource' and is the fastest-
growing. energy supply tech-
nology.
The United States has. an;
allundance of potentially vi-
able wind resources- onshore
and offshore- estimated at o% er
2.000 giga%\ans (GW).
To put this into perspective,
350 GW \\of installed wind ca-
pacit would represent about
20 percent of our nation's cur-
rent electricity demand. This is
similar to the letel of electric-
ity produced from the nation's
nuclear or natural gas-fired
generation toda\..
Today, the nation's "'\ind
farms" generate over 9,000
megawatts of electricity-

Columnist

Recently, Terry Mattingiy-
wrote 'USA Today's Monday
editorial "On Religion." In his
piece he argued that journalists
need to "'get religion." He
.meant that'journalist need to
learn more about religious be-
liefs so that they can properly
and accurately report religious
events, development, and lead-
ers' comments.
He talked about reporters
who don't know the difference
between and Episcopalian and
Episcopal, who confuse evan-
gelicals with evangelists or.
even "evangelicalists. "a word
that does not exist. In Mat-
tingly's view, while bias
against religion may exist in
media, .the far greater problem
is lack of experience, apathy,
or outright ignorance about re-
ligious topics.
I agree with Mattingly. On a
number of occasions I've been
asked by reporters what could
only be charitably described as
ignorant questions and I work
in a locality where religion still
plays a fairly prominent role in
public life.
I'm not alone. Nationally
known, highly regarded, and


ing ,used to generate on-site
power and provide additional
..pper to local utilities, and'the
marker is expanding at over 20
percent annually.
However wind power repre-
sents more than just competi-
tive electricity. It offers:
.., rural economic .benefits
from project development;
.-,* a hedge, against volatile
natural gas prices and planned
,use of imported liquid natural
gas;-
"* cost-effective 'clean air
compliance option for busi-
nesses and communities:
strong potential partner for
other domestic power indus-
tries including coal and nu-
clear, and
Sarenewable option for pro-
ducing hydrogen for transpor-
tation fuels.

From other countries. In addi-
tion. unlike most other elec-

don't consume water.
Forinstance, irrigation and

cast journalists struggled to
find the right vocabulary- and
frequently failed- to as Mel'

Passion of the Christ." Diane
Sawyer of CBS demonstrated
she knew very little about bib-

Reporters too often seem.
more interested in possible
controversy. Potential or real
controversy 'sells papers, and
news broadcasts. But before I
come down too heavily upon
journalists, I must add imn self
to the mix. I don't, for exam-
ple, know enough about Islam.
I'm reading, and I'm.learning.
But I have a ways to go.
What journalists first need to
grasp is that religion is not just
a cultural form like eating,.
clothing, or dating habits. Re-
ligion is not one of the compo-
nents of a culture. Religion
defines a culture. ,The best
definition of culture is Henry
Van Til's from years ago:
"Culture is religion external-
ized." In other words, a peo-
ple's religious paradigm or
worldview creates their
.culture.

Kids Injured By Mowers


Many parents know 'it's im-
portant to tend to more than
their yards when they do yard
work. Still, thousands of chil-
dren are injured in yard-work-
related injuries every year.
It only takes a moment for a,
child to dart into the path of a'
lawn mower.
Myranda got her foot
trapped underneath the blade
of her father's riding lawn
mower when she was 2 years
old.
Spence lost part of his foot
when he tripped in front of a.
riding lawn mower when he
was 3.,
Both Myranda and Spence


had to have a foot amputated
.and now use prostheses.
Myranda and Spence are
among the many children
SShriners Hospitals for Chil-
'|dren treats each year who have
'lost fingers, toes and limbs as a
result of power lawn mower
L accidents.
According to the U.S. Con-
*sumer Product Safety Com-
Smission (CPSC), more than
84,000 injuries result from.
'lawn mower accidents each
'year, and 8,800 of those in-
jures are to children under the
age of 18. One out of every
five lawn mower deaths in-
volves a child.


According to a report pub-
lished in the Annals of Emer-
gency Medicine Web site,
children between the ages of
15 and .19 have the highest rate
of hospitalizations caused by
lawn mower accidents, and the
second-most-common result of
these hospitalizations is toe
amputation.
To prevent lawn mower inju-
ries, follow these ,safety tips
from Shriners Hospitals' for
Children and CPSC:
Do not allow passengers
on a riding mower.
Keep children out of the
yard and indoors while mow-
ing the lawn.


Do not allow children un-
der the age of 14 to operate a
lawn mower.
Always prepare your lawn
for mowing. Check your lawn
for items such as sticks, rocks,
toys, etc. Make sure nothing is
hidden in the grass.
Handle fuel. with care,
Wipe up spills. Never fill the
tank on a mower that is hot.
Never smoke or use any kind
of flame around gasoline.
Wear appropriate clothing
and shoes, including long
pants, long-sleeved shirts, eye
protection, heavy gloves, and

Early Signs Of Vision


Problems in Children


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

With school opening next
week, parents are encouraged
to pay attention to their chil-
dren's eyes.
Most of a child's knowledge
is based on what he/she sees,
a fact which underlines the
importance of the American
Optometric Association's
findings that nearly 16 per-
cent of the children in our
country have inadequate vi-
sion.

Furthermore, reduced Visual,
skills are the root of reading .
problems found in 94 percent
of school children. a.
Left untreated, visual dys-
function not. only impairs a s
child's learning process, but .
also causes, frustration that
can lead to acting out.in class
and even delinquency. i
While ,most .schools offer
vision screenings every few
years, these tests are not ade-
quate for several reasons.
They ar, generally not ad-
ministered by optometrists,
focus on visual acuity (clarity-
at a distance) and few schools
test every year.
The American Foundation ,
For Vision Awareness
(AFyA) that school screening..
systems identify only one out-
of every four .children who
have vision problems.
STo succeed in the classroom,
children must be able to do
more than' simply read the
background frimin 2(0 feet
away (the standard gauge in .
the Snellen test most often
used in eye screenings). -


Many learning tasks involve
tp close reading that requires
variety of focusing, scan-
ning, and visual coordination
skills to make sense of the
words on the paper. or com-
puter screen. '
'Since vision is ka learned
skill,. children with vision
problems often are not aware
)f them because they lack a
frame of reference for their
experience.
Early detection is important
because the sooner treatment
begins, the greater a child's.
chance of developing normal
vision. Some signs to look

son with a Kickoff Classic

Friday, Aug. 18, here
Coach Rodell Thomas ex-
plained that a full four-quarter
game will be played.
He is looking forward to
some fierce Tiger
competition.
'-The Tigers had been meet-
ing ftice daily since July. 31,
with a varied number of ath-
letes in attendance from day
to day.


Thomas attributes the low
and varying numbers of play-
ers turning out, to losing a
large number of last, years
players because of grades, as
well as students holding sum-
mer jobs
To date, the greatest num-
ber of players show irig up for
practice has been 14.,
Tigers began practicing
once per week Thursday, with
regular practices to start
4:30-6:30 p.m., when school
starts. Season games will be
played on Fridays.
"After school starts, I sus-
pect the number of players
turning out will be somewhat
larger," said Thomas.

Misuse Of Backpacks Can


Cause Back Pain, Injury


With school open, students
are racing to the school bus or
scurrying to classes with over-i
stuffed backpacks slung over
one shoulder.
Backpacks have made it
easy for Americans to throw
in everything without realiz-
ing that they could be throw-
ing out their backs
At the same time, more
adults have opted for lugging
a backpack, rather than a
briefcase, to and from the of-
fice.
While carrying a backpack
may seem harmless enough, it
can cause' some painful back
and neck problems for people
who don't pack or carry their
backpacks properly, accord-,
ing to the Florida Chiropractic
S,,Association (FCA).
"Back pain is pervasive in
our society," said FCA Presi-
dent Ken Dougherm. "Eifghty :
percent of all Americans ill
suffer from it at one poiit in
their lives, and fifrt percent of
- us v.ill suffer from lom-back
pain, this \ ear alone.
"NMuch of this suffering is
brought on by bad habits initi-
ated during our younger
.ears, such as carrying over-
weight backpacks to school,"
he added.
S survey by Lands' End Di-'
!.,-rect Services found that more.
'than 96 percent of children.,
ages 8-12, will carry, a back-
pack to school this Near.
Of those, nearly one third

The FCA offers the follow-
ing tips to parents to help pre-
\ent the needless pain that
backpack misuse could cause
* the students :
*Make sure your child's
backpack weighs no more
than five to ten percent of
his/her body weight.

ders, by the straps.
*The position of the back-
pack is important. The back-
pack should never hang more
than four inches below the
waistline. A backpack that
hangs too low increases the
weight on the shoulders, caus-
ing your child to lean forward
when walking.
*A backpack with individu-
alized compartments helps in
positioning the contents more
effectively. When packing
the backpack, make sure that
pointy or bulky items are
packed away from the area
that will rest on your child's
back.'
An uneven surface rubbing
on your child's back could
cause some painful blisters.
*Keep in mind that bigger is
not necessarily better, parents
should bu\ the best designed
backpack possible for their
* child. ,
The, more room there is in a
'backpack, the more tour child
ill carrm. and the hea\ ier the


backpack will be..
*It is important that your
child wear both shoulder
straps. Lugging the backpack
around by one shoulder strap
can cause the disproportionate
shift of weight to one side,
leading to neck and muscle
spasms, as well as low-back
pain.
*Padded straps are very im-
portant. Non padded straps
are very uncomfortable and
can dig into your child's
shoulders.
*The shoulder straps should
also be adjustable so the
backpack can be fined to your
child's body. Shoulder straps
:hat are too loose can cause
the backpack to dangle un-
comfortably and cause spinal
mnsalignment and pain.
'If the backpack is still too
heavy, talk to, your child's
teacher It might be possible
for your child to leave. the
heaviest books at school and-
bring home only lighter hand-
out materials or \orkbooks.
