the library Tuesday evening to

LAZARO ALEIMAN
Senior StalTWriter


At the request of the Health
Department, the: Planning
Commission last \\eek agreed
I to begin drafting language for.
a proposed" ordinance to
regulate septic tanks.
At present. the Health
Department is charged \\ith-
permitting and monitoring
septic tanks in the countR. But
Director Kim, Bamhill told
planners that her, department
has no real way of monitoring
the situation or enforcing
compliance, absent an3
ordinance.
"The Health Department
does not have the s:aff to
monitor every septic tank and
a lot of them are failing and
potential contaminants are go-
ing into the aquifer," Bamhill
said. "What we do up here is
closely linked to the aquifer. I
want you to consider an ordi-
nance that will protect the wa-
ter quality." : .
Barnhill pointed out that the
Aucilla and Wacissa rivers al-
ready are showing signs of
degradation from stormwater
runoff and nitrates. She said
she worried what the impact
would be, given the county's
expected growth.
Among the requirements that
Barnhill recommended for in-
clusion in the ordinance: Man-
datory inspections and
pumping of septic tanks every
five years; inspection and
pumping of septic tanks when-
ever a property is sold; and
performance-based septic sys-
tems for structures built within
100 feet of water.
Barnhill brought with her
Bart Bibler, bureau chief over
water programs, and Mark
-Hooks, environmental rhan-
ager %. ith the Division of Envi-
ronmental Health, both with
the Department of Health.
Bibler warned planners not
to. allow the water quality. to
get so compromised that it
would require restoration.
"It's cheaper to get ahead of
the curb," Bibler said. "Nutri-
ents cause vegetation to prolif-
erate. The Wacissa is already
showing signs of nutrient con-
centrations. But it's still early
and the timing is good to get
ahead of the curb before water
quality has all kinds of prob-
lems.
"If it becomes impaired, the
Department of Environmental
Protection gets involved and it
requires a costly plan to restore
it. You don't want to see that
happen to the water bodies
here: There's a lot of linkage

between, surface after and
ground%%ater and drinking wa-
ter."
Hooks underscored the im-
portance of managing onsite
%%astexwater treatment and dis-
posal systems by pointing out
that I 3 of the state's popula-
tion uses septic tanks, epre-
senting more than 2.5 million
such si stems.


*At the same time, he said, 92

Elections Supervisor 'Marty
Bishop reminds citizens that
early voting begins Monday
and runs through Sept. 2, with
the exception of the Sunday in
between.
Early voting hours are 8:30
a.m. through 4:30 p.m. Mon-
day through Saturday in the
elections office at 380 W.

date Kirk Reams against
Democratic candidate Daniel
Jones for the Democratic Party,
nominee.
The winner in this contest
will run against Republican
candidate Wendy Moss and
No Party Affiliation candidate
Brenda Sorensen in
November.
In the School Board races,
the results of the Sept. 5 jiri-


tamination of the drinking wa-
ter from failing septic tanks
and the economic benefits
from tourism and the recrea-
tional use of clean water bod-
ies, it behooved communities
to protect their water quality,
Hooks said.
'He said the conventional
septic tank and drainfield is ef-
fective for the removal of bac-
terial arid viral pathogens but
less so for nitrogen. He said
about 20 to 25 lbs. of nitrogen
enter the aquifer per system
per year.
,Hooks said Jefferson
Country is particularly\ sensitive
to surface pollution entering
the aquifer, given its topogra-
phy and soil makeup
He cited a series of advanced
systems. that ranged, in cost
from $2,000 to more than
$11,000 ,
He said some of the systems
the property owner owned and
contracted with a utility com-
pany to maintain, -and others
the utility company owned and
maintained and the property
owner paid a monthly fee.
Hooks said government
'loans were available for home-
,owners to soften the blow of
the initial cost to install the
systems, given that such costs
must be paid upfront.

Planners briefly discussed,
the possible direction of the or-
dinance. They debated whether'
the ordinance should apply to
existing septic tanks or' to new
de elopments onl\ .
Planner Pat Murphy,pointed,

tions of e\isung septic tanks.
be a massive undertaking. but,
the majority w would probably
be fourd faulty. Think of the
cost to residents already strug-'
gling financially, he said.:
Planner Ro\ Faglie agreed.
The\ needed to proceed cau-
tiousi', on the ordinance, he
said ': : .' :

'We haveto 'do our home-
work or we can open the door
to a lot of abuse," Faglie said.
'Planner Bud Wheeler %\on-
dered who would enforce the
ordinance, given the county's
traditional lack .of
enforcement.
"You show me: one thing that,
is enforced in"'this county,"
Wheeler said;
"'I s assured 'hifithat'ri'-
forcement was possible and
could take the form of an in-
junction, civil fine, or court ac-
tion for residents who failed to
address the problem, dnce
brought to'their aitention.


"I'd like to see the ordinance
start ith new houses and
work back toward the existing
septic tank's." Faglie said.
Planner Brad Mueller
agreed.
"\Ve need language in the
code to allo%% the Health De-
partment to do evaluations on
a site per site basis and make,
recommendations to the Plan-
ning Commission for upgraded
septic s\ stems." Mueller said.
* Planner Corn' in Padgen '.%ent
one step further
"You' just mandate that all
new systems installed need to'


Meet the .ew criteria," Padgett
said.
Bamhill supported the idea.
"I think new developments
need to be held to a higher
standard." she said, citing the
rece'i efforts b\ city officials
and the legislative committee
to get state funding to upgrade
the se er s\ stem for the Coo-
per's Pond subdivision. '
SHad the right system been
installed to begin w ith, it,
wouldn't have required state
assistance to repair the failing
system, she said.

Theories about the reason for
the main mound range from it
serving as a ceremonial site to
it being a seat of power to
serving as a burial ground for
the chiefs.
Besides the main mound,

Student Enrollment Rises


In Schools Countywide


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

Public and private schools-
in the county saw some 1,551
students on opening day, up a
total of 83 students, from
1,468 last year.
ACA has 382 confirmed en-
rolled students, up 27 from
last year's number, 355, with
another five expected to en-
roll this week.
At ACA a new drop off and
pickup procedure is in place,
and two new vending ma-
chines have been added with
healthier choices .
Jefferson Elementary School
had 620, up 65 students, from
555 last year.
Howard Middle School had
245, up 43 froni 202 last year.
Jefferson County High
School had 255 students on
the first day pf school, down,
45 students from 300 of last,
year.
There are a total of 142
teachers in the county; 30 at
ACA, up four from 26; seven
at MCA, nearly, double last
year's four; 44 at JES, the
same as the previous year; 31
at HMS, up 15 from 16; and
30 at JCHS, up four from 26.-
Of those teachers, a total of
29 are -new, including: 11 at
JES; five at MCA; fiye at
ACA; three at HMS; and five
at JCHS.
"That number at JES is'going
to keep increasing," said Prin-
cipal Kay Collins, referring to
this week's number of stu-
dents.
The first day of school was
great, all the students showed
up and were in class, all, of
them were fed, and everyone
made it home safely.
"We've changed our little
world, here," said Collins. '
New this year is the school's
motto, "Every student learns,
one student at a time."
"It's all about student
achievement," said Collins.
Also new at the school, "All
of the classrooms have a fresh


coat of paint and new furni-
ture," said Collins.
Also, a new gifted/enrich-
ment class is operational this
year."
The students in this particu-
lar class' will be learning
Spanish, and they will also be.
getting a lot of hands-on ex-
perience with the Odessy of
the Mind.
Odyssey is a statewide com-
petition in which students are
given a puzzle/problem,
which promotes local think-
ing and reasoning ability.
"We're also looking into set-
ting up more computer labs
this year," said Collins.
"We'll be working more on
reference and research skills,
than in the past."
At Howard Middle School
the focus is on maintaining
and/or increasing the School,
Report Card. Grade of "B,".
.the .highest yet achieved in the
county.
Jefferson County High
School is hard at work with
its detailed School Improve-
ment Plan which received ac-
colades from the State, to pull
the School Grade out of the-
"F"category.
MCA has added a pre-K pro-
gram and now has a media
center, library and computer
lab.
Plans call for adding soft-
ball and baseball to the list of
extracurricular activities.
MCA will continue to offer'-
basketball, volleyball and flag
football..
As last year, ACA continues
to have four buses that aver-
age approximately 300 miles


per day.
Jefferson County. School
Transportation Department
has 17' buses, which covers
1,576.6 miles per day, rather
than the 19 buses which cov-
ered the same amount of
miles last year.
The consolidation was made
possible b\ the relocation of'
Howard Middle School to the
Jefferson County High School

pease terrorism, the\ are some-
how immune from future evil

SThose counties bent in that
direction need to take a serious
and realistic look at the grow-
ing world Islamic militant
movement. .
There can be no doubt that
Islamic terrorism has one goal
and one goal only, and that is
to dominate the world with
their religion anid beliefs. They
clearly see their "holy" mis-
sion to kill, all of us infidels
until only pure Islamic people
remain.
I recall a couple of guys by

between then and now is that
back then American's clearly'
understood the threat and fully
supported the government in
its actions to permanently an-


nihilate this cancer.
Today in America, politics is'
,more important than the safety
and security of our citizens.
Civil liberties are more impor-
tant then safety and security.

actions against terrorism are
more important than safety or

game is more important than
safety or security. 'Seeking po-

than safety or security.
Using flagged draped coffins

the truth for personal or party

Currently, much of the an-
nual budget of $98,5000 is

Holton begins covering much
of the required medical care
at the shelter.
George Carswell reiterated
the need for immediate fund-

Flowers Bakery for their an-

lier than it is annually made. _
"With fundraisers, dona-

,-0could acquire low cost medi-
'cal supplies, free feed and
free cat litter, but first, there
was the need to acquire a stor-
age building to store the
items.
"I can save a lot of money
on the vet bills," she related.
President Caroline Carswell
said the local vet's offices
have been really good to the

,!there were some services,
'such as spays and neuters,
that Holton could not

She explained that before

Holton, they first had to spend
the money acquiring the
equipment and medications
that will be needed on site for
regular general medical care
of the animals.

July Rainfall Here Below Average


RAY CICHON
Managing Editor

Rainfall in the County for-
July was at 4.44 inches, below
the district average of 4.84
inches for the month.
County average rain for July
is 7.23 inches, and in July of
2005 rainfall here was at 12.56
inches.
Only five other counties of
the 14 comprising the Suwan-
nee River Water Management
District had a lesser amount of
rainfall in July.
. The District average rainfall
for July in all years, is 7.65
inches.
Counties representing the
District include: Alachua,
Baker, Bradford, Columbia,
Dixie; Gilchrist, Hamilton, La-
fayette, Levy, Madison, Swan-
nee, Taylor, and Union
Counties.


Cumulative rainfall for the
District is 55.6 inches, result-
ing in a deficit of about 20 per-
cent, for the last 12 months.
At the Aucilla River in La-
mont, July rainfall was at
46.63 inches, versus 48.06 av-
erage in July.
The District continues to rec-
ommend that water conserva-
tion be an ongoing activity for
all water users.
Water is conserved by using
the minimum amount needed
for specific applications, and
by irrigating lawns, plants, and
crops only when necessary and
