Planners Send Open Space


Ordinance

Goal is To Preserve

County's Rural Look


LAZARO ALENlAN
Senior Staff Writer

But for a minor change, the
'Planning Commission. last
week: accepted the conser a-
tion subdivision ordinance as
presented by its three-member
subcommittee and forwarded
the document to the Counrt.
Commission for review and a'
decision..
The ordinance, which if, ap-
proved will be added to the;
Land Development Code, aims
S Y. to encourage the development
of'conservation subdivisions.
Conservation subdivisions.
as defined in the 11-page
document, are "a form of resi-
dential development that con-
centrates buildings or lots on
part of the site to allo\\ the re-
maining land to be used for
common open space, recrea-
tion and preservation of envi-
ronmentally sensitive
features."
In short, the ordinance seeks
to protect and preserve the


county's rural character and its
natural resources by keeping
as much open space as possi-,
ble.
The ordinance does this by
allowing developers to concen-
trate lots via the reduction of
lot sizes and the clustering of
residential units.
It also allows developers to
achieve a greater density than
is permined by the zoning des-
ignation of the particular par-
cel by way of an incentive.
The ordinance .applies only
to -areas zoned ag-3 (one-house
per three acres);, ag-5 (one-
house per five acres) and ag-
20 (one house per 20 acres).
The one minor change the
planners made Thursday night
was to expand the size of the
buffer zone on the develop-
ment's frontage roads.
The subcommittee originall-,
recommended a buffer of 50
feet. The Planning Commis-
sion, on the advice of Attorney
Scott Shirley, .changed this to
an average of 75 feet with a
__minimum of 50 feet "to give

FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer
Health Department Director
Kim Barnhill. reports that an _
official rabies alert has been
issued for the western part of
the county.
She, said that in the past two
weeks, two bob cats were
tested and came back
positive, and most recently,
the testing of a fox came back
positive.
"We want to warn residents
not to let their kids outside
and become exposed, and to
also keep their pets inside,"
said Bamhill.
She added that though the
most common carriers of the
disease are bob cats, foxes
and raccoons, and there is
presently a case being investi-
. gated in central Florida, in-
volving a squirrel.


"Any animal can have it,"
she warned.
She advises residents not to
try rendering any assistance to
sick wild animals and not to
feed wild animals.
Though rabies is most com-
monly found in bats, bobcats,
foxes and most of all, rac-
coons, the last confirmed case
of rabies in the county was in
a cow in 1998.
Barnhill warned residents
not to approach wild animals,
to make sure their pets are
vaccinated, not to leave pet
foods outdoors, and do not
leave garbage where it is eas-
ily accessible. '
Symptom include slobber-
ing, staggering' and aggres-
siveness.
To report suspected cases,
call the Health Department at
342-0170.
Additional information will
be forthcoming as it unfolds.


County OKs

Kennel Site

LAZARO ALEMAN .
Senior Staff Writer

County commissioners last
week authorized the animal
control program to proceed
with construction of a kennel
at the solid waste .dump site off
;I Vaukeenah St.
Commissioners chose the
site over the formerly pro-
posed location just east of the
Economic Development Coun-
cil office on US 19 South.
Solid .Waste Department Di-
rector Beth Thorne, who over-
sees the animal control
program, assured commission-
ers that the new location is
relatively isolated.
She said the land behind the
site consists of 14.5 acres and
has no residences on it. Some
commissioners had expressed
concerns about 'the US 19 site,
given that a residential devel-
opment is. slated to go in
nearby.
Animal control has been us-
ing the city's kennel since the
program started about eight
months ago. But now the city
is giving indications that it
wants the county to establish
its own facility.
Meanwhile, Thome, Sheriff
David Hobbs and a representa-
tive of the Humane Society are
to come up with a recommen-
dation for the handling of
abused and neglected dogs.
The present ordinance ad-
dresses only dangerous aini-
mals. But more and more,
animal control is getting calls

Trash Resurfaces


(Continued From Page 1)
But mostly, the session
served to allow commissioners
to vent their frustrations over
the problem of out-of-county
garbage. Indeed, Tuten at one
point remarked that the board
"has beaten this dog until all
the hair has fallen out."
Solid Waste Department Di-
rector Beth Thorne pointed out
that a large part of the problem
is construction companies
dumping their debris' at the
sites.
"They've been eating us
up," Thorne said, adding that
no sooner do her employees
clean up a site than it is over-
whelmed with trash again.
Thome offered as a solution


the re-manhing of the dump
sites, which the county quit
doing a few years back be-
cause of budgetary constraints.,
"The only ,way -to prevent
out-of-county garbage coming
in and getting a handle on the
situation is to man the sites
again," Thorne said.
She pointed out that, cur-
rently, one individual is having
to monitor six sites, a near im-
possible feat under the best of
circumstances.
Commissioners did not re-
spond to Thorne's suggestion.
Instead, they instructed her to
research how Madison and
other counties are .screening
their garbage and to report her
findings back to them.

to handle abandoned or ne-
glected dogs.
Any time a complaint is
called in to his department, a
deputy must investigate,
Hobbs said. He said if the dep-
uty then finds that the animal
has been abused or neglected,
the department must act.
"Anytime you have an aban-
doned animal, it's against the
law," Hobbs said. "We have an
obligation once we get there


because a crime has been com-
mitted. Once it's called, we
can't ignore it."
The question, Hobbs said,
was how to transport the par-
ticular animal and where to
keep it until it was either put to
sleep or the issue was decided
in court.
Thome asked the commis-
sion for direction.
"We're not supposed to be
doing this, but we're doing it,",
Thorne said.

While home in Waukeenah'
on the summer furlough, Mela-
nie and Lloyd Monroe reflect
upon their "Porche De Salo-
mon" ministry in Panajachel,
Guatemala, one year later.
"We barely had time to settle
in, when Hurricane Stan hit in
October, causing mud slides,
which provided a good start in-
our ministry as we joined in
the food distribution and Tre-
lated storm efforts," Melanie
said Friday.
Among the efforts ,of the
Monroes in their ministry is
the providing of scholarships
or "Becas" for children to at-
tend school.
The cost of schooling from

a week, cinema which shows
films and rents them, and hosts
'a weekly worship gathering, in
addition to its availability for
school and community func-
.tions.
No alcohol is served at the
coffeehouse, partially because
of the high rate of alcoholism
prevalent in the area.
Lloyd and his son Daniel
also play with the "Method To
Madnez" group at a local bar,
"Bohemias."
"'Music is the international
.language, and opens .many
"doors, and helps build relation-
ships," Lloyd noted.

For every additional 15 per-
cent of the land that the deyel-.
oper dedicates to open space --
above the initial and required
40 percent -- county officials
may grant a 10 percent density
bonus.
The minimum lot size for
'conservation subdivisions is
one half acre.
The procedural steps for the
design of a conservation subdi-
vision, in chronological order:
identify conserm action areas;
calculate the lot yield; select
the location of house sites;
align the streets and trails; and
draw the boundaries of the in-
dividual lots.
At least 75 percent of the
dedicated open space must be
contiguous, when practicable.
At least 50 percent of the open
space must be suitable for
home-site construction.
The open space must be di-
rectly accessible to the largest
practicable number of lots
within the subdivision.
Permitted .uses of open
space include walking or bicy-'
cle trails; active recreation ar-
eas, provided they are limited
to no more than 10 percent.of
the total open space;' .agricul-
ture, horticulture, silviculture,
equestrian or pastures uses;
and landscaped storm water
management facilities, com-
munity wastewater disposal
systems and individual waste-
water'disposal systems.
Prohibited uses of the open
space include golf courses,
roads, parking lots and agricul-'
tural and forestry activities not
conducted according to the ac-
cepted Best Management Prac-
tices.

A homeowners association
representing all residents of
the subdivision will own the
open space. Establishment of,
and membership in, the home-
owners' association is manda-
tory.

The developer must legally
guarantee the protection of the
open space into perpetuity via-
a binding legal instrument that
is recorded with the deed.

Marital Bliss Explained

The reason marriage is a fail-

they can't be a success at any-
thing else either.

A successful marriage is one
where the wife is the boss but'
doesn't know it.

Writer Sees Irony In News


By DENNIS FOGGY
Columnist

Am I the only "one that.
picked up on the irony of the
front page stories in the July
28th issue of the Monticello
News? First there was the lead-
ing news of the county receiv-,
ing a $200,000 check from the
state legislature for a horse
arena.
On the opposite side of the
page was a notice that the, city
will add' over six hundred
houses in the near future.
The last time I checked, our
Jefferson County public -


schools were struggling to
meet even minimum standards
on state performance evalua-.
tions. While our elementary
- and middle schools have im-
proved .over their dismal past
.performance, our high school
received a whopping "F" rat-
ing by failing to meet even the
minimal passing standards.
So let's see----' trying to at-
tract over six hundred more
families to the Monticello/ Jef-
ferson county area with the
likes of "Green Zones", plan-
ning commissions and expen-
sive "development studies"
while I guess using smoke and
mirrors to hide the abysmal


education system awaiting
their children.
I assume all the commission-
ers proud to be pictured recei\-
ing the Horse Arena check, en-
gineered by State Representa-
tive Will Kendrick, can point
to the revenue such a facility
can 'produce for the county.
I.would much rather see the
state" issuing the county a
$200,000 check to use for im-
proving the failing education
system. Oh, I know the re-
sponse to my thinking. "This
here money was from the Ag-
riculture pot of funds to be
used only for agriculture stuff
like horses and cows, just like


transportation money must be
used only for roads and ditches
and such." "
Well what in the heck hap-
pened to common sense in Tal-
lahassee? Oops, sorry. 'That;
was a dumb question. Is our
legislative process so entan-
gled and discombobulated that
money can't be diverted to
fund the essential needs of ,a
county?
I don't believe we. need a
rocket scientist to discover that
if there are funds in the state
coffers, allocation of such mo-
nies should have to pass some
form of common sense test be-_

Lightning: Nature's Show


By CHRIS FLOYD
American Red Cross

Lightening occurs with all-
thunderstorms. It averages 93
deaths and 300 injuries each
year. It also causes several
hundred million dollars in
damage to property and forests
annually.
You should be aware of the
dangers of lightning and how


to protect yourself and your
family from becoming victims.
Here are some helpful facts
about nature's fireworks...
* What is lightning? Light-
ening occurs when the ac-
tion of rising and
descending air within a
thunderstorm separates
positive and negative
charges. Lightning results
from the buildup and dis-
charge of electrical energy


between positively and
negatively charged areas.
* The average flash of light-
ning could light a 100-
watt light bulb for more
than three months.
* Most lightning occurs
within the cloud or be-
tween the cloud and
ground.
* The air near a lightning
strike is heated to 50,000,
F- hotter than the surface


of the sun! The rapid heat-
ing and cooling of air near
the lightning channel
causes a shock wave that
results in thunder.
To estimate the distance in
miles between you and the
lightning flash, count the
seconds between the light-
ning and the thunder and.
divide by five.
Most lightning deaths and

Copeland' said that emer-

than a pay day loan, most',
anyone can benefit from' mak-

sticking to it.

quickly add up," she ,con-
cluded.

Though the playoff game
for the Monticello A's base-
ball team was scheduled for
this past weekend, the boys
did not get the opportunity to
play.
"The Quincy Dodgers and
the Thomasville Sluggers
came out in a dead-heat for
second place, so they had to
play a game against each
other to determine the number
two team," said Coach Jim
Norton.
He said Thomasville won
the final round, taking second
place, and the Dodgers were


awarded the third place spot.
"We're presently at number
four, so next weekend, we'll
start in the playoffs, going
against the Dodgers, in
Quincy," said Norton. "The
Dodgers are a tough team
they have a lot of strong, vet-
eran players on the team.
"I have a lot of faith in our
boys," said Norton. "If we all
show up, I believe we'll do
OK."

will be tough and all on the

must grow up fast." He added
that the Warrior kicking game
is also an issue, and several
players, though experienced,
will be playing new positions
on the field.

ACA History Teacher To


Compete On 'Jeopardy'


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

Resident Sean Carson, Au--
cilla Christian Academy his-
tory teacher for the past eight
years, and lifelong informa-
tion and fact-finding buff, re-
alized his longtime dream
recently, of appearing on the
TV game show, Jeopardy,
7:30 p.m., Sept. 18 on chan-
nel 6.
"It was a thrilling experi-
ence, a whirlwind," said Car-
son. "It was one of those
things that you're enjoying so
much, and is so exciting, and
you're nervous for so long,
that it feels like by the time
you blink, it's over."
He just'arrived back in town
late .* Wednesday afternoon,
from Califronia, after, the

filming, interview, and tryout
session.
Explaining how this came
about, Carson said:
"I have played trivia games
all my life. I was in Brain,
Bowl all through school and
college, I love fact finding,
and I'm always playing Triv-
ial Pursuit."
He said he even keeps the
game in his classroom, pull-
ing it out from time to time
and playing against the stu-
dents. "It's me against the
class. Together, they form my
opponent."
There are also many times
that in the classroom, he will
advise his students of interest-
ing information he had just
learned, and the information'
is discussed.
"I've always thought about

Owners of nurseries and--
vegetable farms will learn'
how they can comply with
federal and state regulations
at a workshop Thursday,
August 24 from 1:30 until
4:00, p.m. at Green Industries
Institute.
The program is sponsored
by the County Extension Of-
fice. *
Farms that produce plants
for sale, and employ farm
workers or pesticide handlers
must comply with the Worker
Protection Standard (WPS) of
the Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA.)
In Jefferson Countn, most
farm emnplo rment is concen-
trated in nurseries and on wa-
termelon and vegetable farms.
Based on recent violations
in Central Florida that endan-
gered farm workers, the Flor-
ida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services


(FDACS) has intensified its
enforcement of WPS, and,
UF/IFAS Extension has
stepped up employer training
for WPS compliance.
Another issue facing grow-
ers is potential environmental
damage from misuse or ex-
cessive use of farm practices
that may pollute water re-
sources.
To assure high levels,ofwa-
ter production while safe-
guarding natural resources,
the agricultural industry has
developed Best Management
Practices (BMPs) for volun-
tary implementation.
BMPs for container nursery
production, and another for
vegetable and agronomic
crops have been developed. .
If growers adopt and carry
out BMPs, they will, be
granted "presumption of com-
pliance" with state water qual-
ity standards.
Farmers who receive the
presumption of compliance
will not be required to con-
duct water quality monitoring


to prove that discharges from-
their property are within ac-
ceptable levels.
"Understanding the regula-
tory environment has become
as important as understanding
the weather,' the botany of
crops and biology pests,. and
the market," says Extension
Director Larry Halsey.
"Stiff fines are being as-.
sessed for WPS violations,
and stringent regulations will
be imposed if we don't accept
the implement BMPs.
I encourage these two
groups of farmers to partici-
pate in the workshop," he
stated.
The workshop is for pro-
ducers in Jefferson and, sur-
rounding counties.

was always one of those
things, it would be too far to
go to the tryouts, such as At-
lanta, Chicago, New York, or
Miami," said Carson.
People can fly out to CA to
try out, but it's too costly, and
too time consuming, not to
know for sure whether or not
you'll be on after trying out,
so, I never really gave it a se-
rious thought.
It just wasn't worth the trou-
ble because it's too random.
It required more money and
time than I was willing to ex-
pend."
He said that his grandmother
called him and said that Jeop-
ardy was conducting 'on-line
testing, and that he should
sign up for it, so he did..
.. "At least that way, you find
out if you're .good enough to
go," said Carson. "If you're
good enough, they will call
you."
"I did the on-line test in
March, and I remember sit-
ting at the computer and typ-
ing my answers, thinking,
_, when is this going to get
hard?" said Carson.
SHe said he went through
about the first 20-25
Questions, knowing the an-
swers to all of them, before
; something would periodically
Come up that he didn't know.
"The\ (contestant coordina-
tors) said that about 100,000
had taken the test in March,"
he added. "Of those, 1,600
would try out, and only 400
would appear on the show."
c In mid-May, Carson re-
ceived an e-mail inviting him
to go to Orlando in June and
try out.
Carson explained that the
trout were conducted in a
:hotel in downtown Orlando,
I to bypass any kind of Disney-
:. related publicity.
"I've got family in the area,
"and I stayed with my Mom
:, and Dad," he said.'
After a personal interview,
SCarson said they held a mock
session of the show.
"I missed a couple of the
later, questioni, but I an-
swered the majority of them,"
he added.,

"Four days later, I got
called back (asked to go to
CA), and report to Sony Pic-
tures Studios for filming" said
Carson."
Carson explained that dur-
ing the summer months, he
had studied extensively to be
on the show.
"I would watch the show, a
fried would tape reruns for
me off of the Game Show
Network, and I practiced
against the show."
Carson even went as far as
determining a basic list of
subjects to study, which
seemed to be favored by the
show.
"I studied the Almanac, go-
ing over lists, of such infor-
mation as Shakespeare, US.
Presidents, British Royalty,
and other related subjects,"
said Carson.
During the filming, the con-
testants were able to pose for
individual photos with Alex


Trebec,' as well as chat ,with
him after the taping.
Carson was advised prior to
departing CA, that he could
inform family and friends of
the, show's outcome, but to
see that the information was
not leaked to the media, be-
cause the show has not yet
aired.
