Ban On Duck Blinds



Almost Certain

Jefferson County
waterfowl hunters ac-
customed to hunting
from blinds on Lake
Miccosukee will likely
soon find that the prac-
tice is no longer toler-
ated.
Indeed, if the staff
recommended draft rule
that the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC)
approved Wednesday,
June 11, in Dania Beach
is approved again, as ex-
pected, at the board's
September meeting in
Jacksonville, it will take
effect right before the
fall waterfowl season.
The rule, simply,
prohibits hunting from
within, or near, perma-
nent duck blinds on
four area lakes, includ-
ing Lake Miccosukee.
The other three
lakes are lamonia, Carr
and Jackson in Leon

From time to time
local businesses get
phone calls from area
school Booster organiza-
tions or sports clubs, so-
liciting ads for one
reason or another.
Recently, businesses
have been receiving
phone calls, from some-
one, claiming to be sell-
ing ads for the Jefferson
County Middle High
School Boosters.
Jefferson County
High School Athletic Di-
rector Rodell Thomas
states that the JCMHS
Boosters are not selling
ads for the school's ath-
letic department. "The
Jefferson Boosters have
not even organized yet
this year," said Thomas.
He added that the
only authorized seller
for JCMHS ads at this
time is an'organization
called Commercial.
The person/persons
placing these calls also
claim that they are work-
ing with the school and
Coach Rodell Thomas.
He cautions anyone
receiving calls claiming
to be from the JCMHS
Boosters, to ignore them.
"WE don't want the good
citizens of Jefferson
County being ripped off
at the expense of the
school's reputation," he
concluded.


U


Under the proposed
rule, no one will be al-
lowed to duck hunt
within a 30-yard radius
of a permanent blind.
The FWC defines a
permanent blind as any
structure or object that
provides shelter, cover
or concealment for a
hunter and that cannot
be readily taken down.
The definition does
not apply to rooted veg-
etation on the lakes.
Neither does it apply to
a temporary blind that a
hunter sets up for a par-
ticular hunt and then


dismantles and removes
following the hunt.
The FWC points out
that state law has long
prohibited the place-
ment or erection of
such structures on pub-
lic waters. Up until now,
however, the agency has
been reluctant or un-
able to enforce the pro-
hibition.
But with the in-
creasing territorial dis-
putes among hunters, as
well as the potential
hazard that the blinds
pose for boaters, the
FWC has decided it's


time to act.
FWC says the terri-
torial conflicts occur be-
cause hunters who
build and claim owner-
ship of the structures
dispute the right of oth-
ers to hunt in proximity
of the blinds.
FWC staff's deci-
sion to recommend the
rule change followed a
public hearing in Talla-
hassee on June 3 that
was to solicit citizens
and stakeholders input
on the issue. Com-

The changes continue
in the relocation of
county operations, with
the traffic division of the
Clerk of Court's office
one of the latest to make
a move.
Formerly housed in
the bottom floor, south-
east corner of the court-
house, the operation is
now located at the newly
renovated government
complex at 460 West
Water Street. The traffic
division is where mo-
torists pay fines for traffic
citations issued in Jeffer-
son County


The reasons for the
relocation were several,
according to, Clerk of
Court Kirk Reams. First
and foremost, the opera-
tion needed more space,
and because it is self-
standing, it allowed for its
separation from the other
functions at the court-
house, Reams said.
Equally important,
the new location makes
accessibility more con-
venient and also affords
customers more parking
spaces, he sdid.
Additionally, the relo-
cation made room for the
expansion of other.Clerk
of Court operations and
also cut back on the foot


traffic at the courthouse,
he said.
The traffic division's
staff consists of Lynn
Key, Sherry Sears and
Keyona Wilson, formerly
a high school student
working a summer stint
in the office.
The office also rein-
states suspended drivers'
licenses, provided the
suspension resulted from
a traffic citation in Jeffer-
son County Cost of the re-
instatement is $47.50.
Individuals may pay
fines online by accessing
the traffic division via

Completion of Senior Center

Senior Staff Writer
Crews from Riley
Palmer Construction
Company have been busy
this week, putting siding
on the unfinished build-
ing that is to be the annex
of the Senior Citizens
Center (SCC) on North
Jefferson Street.
The activity, however,
does not mean that the


building will be com-
pleted any time soon.
Rather, the installation of
the siding represents the
final part of the phase-
one work, which is being
funded by a $400,000 fed-
eral grant.
SCC Director Bobbie
Krebs said Wednesday,
June 11, that the siding is
being installed to further
protect the building from

Health Department

Shows Interest In

A abandoned Building


LAZARO ALEMAN
Monticello News
Senior Staff Writer
The former Economic
Development building on
South Jefferson Street
may get a new tenant in
the form of the Health De-
partment.
Actually it's the envi-
ronmental health and
mosquito control opera-
tions within the Health
Department that may be
moving into the building,
originally a branch office
of the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation
(FDOT).
The FDOT, in fact,
may well still own the
property and be leasing it
to the county on a long-
term basis.
The problem is that no
one locally or in the
FDOT seems able to put
hands on the leasing doc-
ument.
But back to the Health
Department request,
which County Coordina-
tor Roy Schleicher con-
* veyed to the County
Commission on June 5.
One reason that the Eco-
nomic Development oper-
ation vacated the building
is that the roof leaks,
among other problems.
But Schleicher said the
Health Department was
willing to undertake all
the necessary repairs if it
moved into the building.
Schleicher said he
was informing commis-


sioners of the Health De-
partment's interest so
commissioners wouldn't
wonder if they saw people
wandering around the
building, which has been
abandoned for several
months. .
He said the Health De-
partment's inspection of
the building would deter-
mine if the two opera-
tions indeed wanted to
move there.
The Health's Depart-
ment expressed interest
in the abandoned build-
ing prompted Commis-
sioner J. N. "Junior"
Tuten to observe that one
person's junk was indeed
another's treasure.'
"Which is the reason
that ugly men marry and
poor land sells," Tuten
said,
Commission Chair-
man Felix "Skeet" Joyner
wondered good-naturedly
if Tuten wasn't casting
aspersions at him, imply-
ing that Joyner's lack of
marriage prospects was
due to his ugliness.
Tuten responded to
the effect that if the shoe
fit, one should wear it.
But he offered hope in the
final analysis, adding that
"even ugly puppies get
adopted eventually"
As for the Health De-
partment's request, com-
missioners decided to
await the results of the in-
spection before address-
ing the issue.

Disparity, Discrimination and Miscommunica tion


Forty-four years after
the enactment of civil
rights legislation, the
meaning of race still is a
problem with the
Jefferson County, Florida
Board of County
Commission. This is evi-
dent in the County
Commissioners failure to
acknowledge a minority
organization, largely
because the lack of inter-
est that doesn't impact
their status as a public ser-
vant or campaign.
Minutes from past
County Commission meet-
ings reflect that non-
minority organizations
have made requests to be
recognized for their
accomplishments. It has
been approved and
acknowledged by the cur-
rent members of the Board
without little debate. To
that extent, minority
organizations have had a
much different experience
in comparison with the
lengthy debates with its
requests for formal recog-
nition.
A proclamation
request to recognize
Solomon Lodge No. 6 to the
Board of County
Commissioners for
Jefferson County was
made on April 17, 2008.


This meeting turned into a
debate over race, votes,
and politics in determin-
ing whether or not to for-
mally recognize the
Masonic Lodge's 140 years
of service to the communi-
ty. In 2008, we are still
fighting to be recognized
in our community, as if we
are stilling living in the
1960's. Our world is chang-
ing and for the first time,
we now have an African
American as the presump-
tive nominee for President
of the United States.
Despite this progress, we
still have a select few of
our public servants who
have not. The question we
should ask is, "Why do we
continue to debate about
recognizing an organiza-
tion when the Governor's
office, members of
Congressional and the
Florida Legislature,
including the -Mayor of
Monticello act with pas-
sion to support this organ-
ization.
Since January of 2008,
members of the Jefferson
County Commission have
been invited to several
functions hosted by the
Masonic Lodge. A
response was not given
from the Commissioners
to indicate why they chose


not to attend or send a rep-
resentative. To this day,
the- members of the
Jefferson County
Commission continue to
ignore this organization.
It gives the impression
that if there is a vote or a
campaign contribution
involved, a minority
organization will get a
warm welcome and
receive acknowledgement
by these Commission
members.
. Solomon Lodge No. 6 is
one of the three founding
Prince Hall Masonic
Lodges of the Most
Worshipful Union Grand
Lodge of Florida, Belize,
Central America and the
U.S. Virgin Islands
Jurisdiction. It has been
active in the Jefferson
County, Florida since 1868.
The organization contin-
ues to enhance and
strengthen the character
of men by providing oppor-
tunities for fellowship,
charity, education, and
leadership.
Respectfully,
Art Brown
Worshipful Master,
Solomon Lodge No. 6

The annual Jefferson
County Watermelon
Festival has kicked off in
full swing.
Last weekend's pag-
eant proved, once again, to
be a wonderful event.' My
congratulations go out to
this year's Queen, Caitlin
Harrison, and to this,'
year's Princess, Mikayla
Fillyaw. I would also like
to extend a "Thank You"
and a "Job Well Donef to
the pageant directors,;
Roslyn Bass and Lindsey
Taylor. It takes a lot of
hard work and dedication
to put on such an event
and these two ladies
should be commended.
I had the honor and
pleasure of being back-
stage helping one of the
contestants, Alfa Hunt,
with hair, make-up, and
wardrobe. What a fun
experience and fun time
we all had. But then
again, in case some of you
have never read my past
columns, I just LOVE pag-
eants.
All the girls were
excited, nervous and just
having a great time. New
friendships were made,
and old friendships were
enjoyed. I met several
ladies I didn't know and
made new friends also. It
just goes to show that no
matter how "old" you are
pageants REALLY are a
great way to make new
friends and have fun
together.
This weekend will
showcase the annual
Watermelon parade and
downtown festivities. I
hope everyone has plans
to attend the events, for it
is occasions such as this
that remind us WHY we
live in a small community.

not able to walk the

smile and wave at every-
one in the parade, and
know them by name as

we raise our children


here. THIS IS WHY so
many people return here
after they thought they
wanted to live somewhere
else.

has a lot of good qualities
and a lot of bad qualities -
but by far, the good qual-
ities out way the bad.
Until then... .see you

Duck Blinds


mission Chairman Felix "Skeet" Joyner,
himself a longtime avid duck hunter,
attended the meeting. Although he has
not hunted in years, Jovyner told his col-
leagues on June 5, he is still greatly inter-
ested in the sport and in its preservation
and perpetuation. He conceded, however,
that the blinds have presented a problem
on the lake for years.
"It's a safety issue," Joyner said, not-
ing that hunters construct the blinds of
every imaginable material, including
boards, plywood and even pipes and
sunken chain-link fences in some
instances.
"It's an environmental issue and a
safety hazard to boaters," Joyner said.
Even so, he had proposed at the June
3 hearing that the FWC consider allow-

Senior Center

and the tobacco industry several years
ago. Krebs said that as soon as the money
becomes available, the center will apply
for the $750.000 and hopefully get it.
The effort to renovate and expand the
center goes back almost six years. A few
years ago, Krebs was able to secure the
$400,000 federal funding with the help of
Congressman Allen Boyd. Krebs then
tried to get the additional $600,000 needed
for the project from the state and other
federal sources.
Unable to get the additional funding and
faced with the possibility of losing the
$400,000 if it wasn't used within a certain
timeframe, the SCC board decided about a
year ago to proceed with the partial con-
struction of the building, in the hope of
eventually getting more money for its
completion.
The delays, coupled with the rising con-
struction costs, have now raised the need-
ed amount to $750,000, however.

ing the construction of blinds made of
biodegradable materials, he said. He did.
not, however, have much expectation
that that the FWC would follow his rec-
ommendation, he admitted.
Commissioner' Danny Monroe,
another avowed duck hunter, picked up
on Joyner's suggestion. He recommend-
ed that the board write a formal letter to
the FWC reinstating the request that the
agency allow the construction of'
biodegradable blinds on the lake.
The Jefferson "County Commission
ultimately approved the mailing of the
letter to the FWC.~What good the letter
would do, insofar as convincing the FWC
to change its mind; was something that
the even the commissioners themselves
doubted, however.

Cont. From Page 1

When completed, the annex will consist of
a 6,757-sq.-foot building that will include
an exercise room, a physician's room, a
dining area, a kitchen with a freezer, and
an adult daycare center, something that
the present facility lacks. The expansion
also adds a circular driveway and 18 more
parking spaces to the facility.
The reason for the expansion is sim-
ply that the clientele has outgrown the
present accommodations.
"We probably have some 200 clients,"
Krebs has stated in the past. "Our clien-
tele has increased and we have run out of
room."
Among its many services, the center pro-
vides educational and nutritional pro-
grams to its clients, as well as onsite
meals. It also provides shopping assis-
tance, transportation, prescription
drugs pickup and housecleaning and
hygienic service to the homebound elder-
ly.

Simpson (1956) concludes
the name means nikasu-
ki, "hog-eaters. "
Monticello The
county seat of Jefferson
County is named for the
historic Virginia home
of Thomas Jefferson. The
post office here received
the name in 1827. Near
here stood the Spanish
mission La Concepcion
de Ayabuli.
Robinson's John G.
Robinson and his wife
Fannme. were the first
settlers in the vicinity of
Monticelloj. A post office
was establi.lhed on May
10, 1827, at Robinson's.
On Dri.emibi-r 26, 1827,
the name was changed to
Monrt icellu
Thomas City -
Thol,:,it it remains on
the map, the postal regis-
ter shows the name
changed to \Vai-s's-?a in
1899.
Turkey scratch In
the early days, before
inhabitants became self-
conscience about the
names of their communi-
ties, the-re was a settle-
ment in Jefferson
County known as
Turkey Scratch. A resi-
dent of Turkey Scratch
suggested to the people
of Lick Skillet that
another name would be
much more suitable for
their settlement. Lick
Skillet was changed to
Lamont and Turkey
scratch was changed to


Panola.
Waukeenah Col.
John G. Gamble in 1827,
named a plantation in
honor of as Spanish lady
from Pensacola who was
a guest. Her name was
Joachina, the English
pronunciation of which
approximates
Waukeenah. Col.
Gamble's land grant was
known as Welaunee,
near the Marion Cross
Roads where, according
to McRory and Barrows
(1935), the Tallahassee
Road crossed a local
north-south road. Among
the other plantations in
the area were William
Nuttall's El Destino,
Prince Achille Murat's
Lipona, Kidder Meade
Moore's Pinetucky, and
Judge Randal's Belmont.
Welaunee Creek -
Also the given name to


Col. G. Gamble's land
grant in this vicinity in
the 1820s. The name is :
from the Greek we,
"water" and lane, "yel-
low," or yellow water.
Williamsburg The
first name of Aucilla.
Settlers came as early as
1832. Scruggs (1966) says
Williamsburg was so
called because many
male settlers bore that
name, including William
Norcu, who ran the
saloon and general store;
Dr. William Emery, the
physician and pharma-
cist; and William Kersey,
the blacksmith. The post
office spelled the name
Williams burgh. When
the railroad was built,
its stop for this area was
known as Station
Number Four, because it
was the fourth station
east of Tallahassee.

To Hold Organizational Meeting 'Horticulture Professional Preparation


The Jefferson County
Sportsman's Association
(JCSA) will hold an organiza-
tional meeting 6:30 p.m., June
27, at the Beau Turner Youth
Conservation Center.
The purposes of the club
are: to conserve, restore, and
manage the game, fish and
other wildlife and its habitat
in Jefferson County and its
environs; to seek to procure,
better fishing and hunting for
sportsmen; to promote and
maintain friendly relation-
ships with land owners and
sportsmen; to cooperate in
obtaining proper respect for,
and observation of, the fish
and game laws.
They will also work to
promote, educate and spread
this heritage to the younger


generation of sportsmen. At
the meeting, the benefits this
club will offer to our youth as
well as a general background
of the Beau Turner Youth
Conservation Center
(BTYCC) and its relationship
with the FWC, will be dis-
cussed.
They will also give new
members information on
how they can get involved
through the JCSA to become

grams that are offered with
them throughout their lives.
No matter if you hunt, fish or
just enjoy the outdoors and
working with kids, they will
welcome all that come out.
There will be activities
throughout the year for all
members and they will be de-
veloping plans to raise
money for scholarships for
kids who wish to go to camp,

would like to start competing
in archery or shooting sports.

different outdoor activities
and skills. They will also be
assembling a team of youth
to compete in the youth

Visconti Land Certified Wildlife Habitat


FRAN HUNT
Monticello News
Staff Writer
The National Wildlife Fed-
eration designated the land of
county residents Jim and Gin-
ger Visconti as a Certified
Wildlife Habitat last month.
Jim explains that the des-
ignation is a voluntary pro-
gram in which anyone, from a
large landowner to someone
with a small balcony garden,
can qualify. "What the pro-
gram does in effect is create
awareness of nature while cre-
ating a prosperous habitat for
them," said Jim.
He said that about two
years ago, he and his wife pur-
chased an approximately 18.5
acre parcel on Indian Hills Rd.
"When we bought it, it had all.
kinds of natural habitat for
wildlife already," Ginger
added.
The pair has done much to
further promote wildlife, such
as planting a variety of native
plants, shrubs and trees
throughout the area. "Differ-
ent kinds of wildlife prefer dif-
ferent types of trees,"
explained Jim. "Some like td
live higher and raise their
young, and some like it lower
down." He added that not only
providing food and shelter are
important aspects of a wildlife
habitat, but it is also just as im-
portant to provide water
sources for the animals.
He said that though their
land is very wildlife friendly,
they plan to do much more to
promote wildlife, and to also
help in the fight against global
warming.
Ginger added that a cou-
ple of months ago, they pur-
chased an additional 13 acres,
which included a nearby wet-
land. "The birds love the
water, but they do prefer run-
ning water." In the near fu-
ture, the couple plans to build
a pond, complete with trickle
fountains for the running
water. The additions have
added much wildlife interest
in residing there, including a
wide variety of butterflies,
birds, woodpeckers, owls and
hawks.


This nature trail was careful

The months of April and
May were two of the most diffi-
cult months our family has
faced.
We could not have had the
strength to face these trials if
not for our Lord, our faith, our
churches, and our friends. Our
family is better and stronger
today than we were in April
and May. That's the beauty of
God's grace and strength He
gives us. Being loved and lov-
ing is more important than
anything.
On April 6, my son Hal
Sprenkle of Pinetta, FL. had
another pancreas attack, his
fourth in four years but this
one was different. He was put
on life support April 7 because
of a foreign object from the gall
bladder that went in the pan-
creas. He could not breathe,
body parts shut down, and
physicians in Valdosta, GA.
told us his mortality rate was
zero. He was transferred to the
Mayo Hospital in Jacksonville
for five weeks on a ventilator.
For all of you who prayed
for Hal, sent cards, financial
support, visited Valdosta, and
Jacksonville, we are so grate-
ful. Words could never express
our thanks to a miracle work-
ing God. And to all of our


friends in Jefferson, Madison,
and Lowndes counties, and
coaches from school who knew
Hal Sprenkle, thank you.
He is home now and has no
date expected to return to
work. He will continue to travel
to the Mayo Hospital and is
called a "walking miracle" by
all the physicians there. Please
continue to pray for Hal and
his family.
Then, on April 17 my dear,
precious mother Louelle
Reaves Mickler was admitted
to the South Georgia Medical
Center. She died there May 13. I
was able to leave Hal at Mayo
and be with her for a few days
before she died.
Thank all of you who
prayed, sent cards, called, and
visited us in our time of sor-
row, we will never forget. A
very special thanks to all of
our churches. God is a great
God and always gives us com-
fort in the form of good
friends.

At the May meeting of the Magnolia Garden Circle,
members learned that the home garden of member Renee
Walker had been given the seal of approval by Martha
Stewart, through communication with the celebrity last
year.

The Magnolia Garden
Circle met Monday, May 19, to
admire the garden of mem-
ber Renee Walker and
learned to its surprise that
none other than Martha
Stewart, homemaking and
garden expert, had already
given the gardens her seal of
approval.
To the delight of mem-
bers, Walker explained that
about a year and one-half
ago, her daughter, Jennifer,
had emailed the Martha
Stewart Show asking for di-
rections on how to preserve
flowers from her mother's
beautiful gardens.
Jennifer, who is a big fan
of Martha Stewart, explained
that her mother works in the
garden all the time and that
she wanted to learn how to
save some of the beautiful
flowers her mother had
grown.
Time went by, and over a


year and one-half later, Jen-
nifer called her mother at
work to tell her with great ex-
citement that the producer of
the Martha Stewart Show
had called and wanted her to
appear on the show in a
viewer phone-in segment
where Martha would be in-
structing Jennifer on how to
press some of the flowers
from her mother's garden.
Magnolia Circle mem-
bers were treated to a view-
ing of that segment which
appeared last July
Stewart is seen on her tel-
evision show describing
Walker's garden with its
Knockout Roses and hibiscus
flowers as very beautiful.
Stewart shows two pho-
tos of the gardens and talks
to Jennifer on the telephone
while a photo of Jennifer ap-
pears.
Stewart provides a few
minutes of instruction to
Jennifer and the audience on
the methods for drying'blos-
soms from hydrangeas by
using a flower press or a
thick book and parchment
paper. ^
Before viewing the
Martha Stewart show seg-
ment, members toureda the
well-kept gardens that ,edge
the back yard.
Most of the beds contain
flowers but tomato plants are
also planted in one of the
beds.
Walker does all the work
from preparing the beds to
planting and weeding and
watering them.
She said she thoroughly
enjoys planting and tending
her gardens.
A lunch was shared of
rice pilaf, cucumber salad,
and rolls, topped off with
slices of red velvet cake.
'Year-end reports were
made. New members were
announced, and the past
year's club president Pam
Kelly was thanked for her
service with a gift.
Cindy Chancy was then
announced as the new club
president for the coming year.

Know Objectives of Mutual
Funds Before Investing
Provided by Robert J. Davison
With thousands of mutual funds on the market, how can you
choose the ones that are right for your individual needs? For
starters, you need to know the objective of each mutual fund in
which you plan to invest.
Let's take a look at the investment objectives of some of the
most popular types of mutual funds:
Growth funds These funds invest in the stocks of growing
companies, with the goal of providing investors with capital ap-
preciation. In plain English, you invest in these funds for the
potential to make your money grow. If you invest in these
funds, you will almost certainly experience the "ups and downs"
of the market, but if you hold your funds long enough, and they
are well managed, you may increase your investment's potential
return.
Growth-and-income funds As its name suggests, a growth-and-
income fund is structured to provide the potential for both
growth in value and current income payments, in the form of
dividends. Generally speaking, these funds are less risky than
growth funds yet offer lower growth potential. But if you are in-
terested in adding an income stream to your portfolio, these
funds may be suitable for your long-term investment goals. Div-
idends can be increased, decreased or totally eliminated at any
time without notice.
International funds You can choose from several types of in-
ternational funds: global funds, which invest in both U.S. and
international .stocks; international funds, which invest primarily
outside the U.S.; country specific funds, which focus on one
country or region; and emerging market funds, which concen-
trate on small, developing countries. These funds generally in-
vest for growth, but they involve special types of risk, such as
currency fluctuations and the prospect of investments being af-
fected by political or economic turmoil.
Bond funds When you invest in a bond fund, you are seeking
current income, in the form of interest payments, and the
chance to help stabilize a portfolio that might be heavily
weighted toward stocks. You can choose from municipal bond
funds, corporate bond funds, mortgage-backed securities funds
and U.S. government bond funds. Although bonds funds gener-
ally contain less investment risk than stock funds, they carry a
different type of risk: purchasing power risk. In other words, the
interest payments you receive from your bond funds may not al-
ways keep up with inflation. Keep in mind that bond funds are
subject to interest rate risk and fund values may decline as in-
terest rates rise.
Money market funds These funds invest in short-term debt in-
struments and are managed to maintain a stable net asset value
of $1 per share, however the value of fund can fluctuate and it's
possible to lose money. Many people invest in money market
funds if they want to "park" funds for a short time before in-
vesting it elsewhere. You.might also use a money market fund
as an "emergency fund" containing six to 12 months' worth of
living expenses. While these types of mutual funds have some
obvious differences, they also share two important traits in com-
mon. First, financial professionals choose the investments,
which is obviously a benefit to you. Second, mutual funds, by
owning many different types of securities, offer the advantage of
diversification. (Diversification, by itself, cannot guarantee a
profit or protect against a loss in a declining market).
A financial advisor can help you choose those mutual funds
that are appropriate for your needs. But it's still your responsi-
bility to know about the funds in which you invest so, before
writing a check, read a fund's prospectus which can be obtained
from your financial advisor. The prospectus contains more com-
plete information, including the funds investment objectives,
risks, charges and expenses that should be carefully considered.

Staff Writer
Brandyn Deas, a Jeffer-
son County Middle/High
School sophomore, has been
awarded a scholarship by
Experimental Aircraft As-
sociation Chapter 445 to at-
tend the EAA Air Academy
in Oshkosh, WI.
The scholarship pays
Air Academy tuition as well
as air fare.
He was chosen from
among the students that
have flown with Chapter pi-
lots under the EAA Young
Eagles program.
He was selected on the
basis of his interest in avia-
tion, academic standing, cit-
izenship, his essay,
and recommendations from
his teachers.
At the Academy, stu-


dents experience a week
packed with hands on activ-
ities including, learning
principals of flight, aircraft
construction, navigation,
and spending time with over
100 vintage aircraft in the
EAA Museum.
For most, the highlight
of the week will be a plane
ride that allows them to
have one-on-one flight time
with an experienced pilot.
The event takes place at
EAA headquarters in
Oshkosh, WI., and attendees
stay in the beautiful Air
Academy Lodge.
EAA is an international
organization of more than
170,000 pilots, plane
builders, and others with an
interest in aviation.
The EAA Young Eagles
program was established to
help young people develop
an interest in aviation by
giving them their first light
plane ride.
Member pilots give
these rides free to those be-
tween the ages 8 through 17.
In the past year Chapter 445
has flown more than 400 stu-
dents.
EAA Chapter 445 is
based at the Tallahassee Re-
gional Airport. Chapter

sistant Week is this week
June 12-19. The original
idea behind this week was
to honor those CNA's who
have chosen this work as a
career. It now in-
cludes all nursing assis-
tants, with June 12th being
specially designated for
CAREER nursing assis-
tants.
The annual observance
of Career Nursing Assis-
tants' Day and Nursing As-
sistants' Week began in
Ohio in 1977 as the Ten
Year Club, and expanded
nationwide by request in
1985.
Since that time, this
popular nursing assistant
recognition program has
grown to include thou-
sands of facilities and or-
ganizations joining
together each year to rec-
ognize and honor nursing
assistants in long-term
care services.
The title, Career Nurs-
ing Assistant was devel-
oped by the Nursing
Assistants' Representa-
tives' Committee of NE
Ohio in 1977.
Today's nursing assis-
tant is proud to be desig-
nated as a Career Nursing
Assistant, and the termi-
nology is now in common
usage to identify the expe-
rienced nursing assistant.
Nursing Assistant
Week should be cause for
positive reflections of the
work CNA's do.

The Little King and
Queen pageant Saturday af-
ternoon resulted in Mark
Prevatt named Little King
and Anna Grace Key named
Little Queen. The First
Runner-up Little King was
Austin Wheeler and the
First Runner-up Little
queen was Mylie Rogers.
The friendliest Little
Queen was Haley Atkinson;
best Little Queen Dancer
was Caroline Flynt; best Lit-
tle King hair was Travis
Wheeler, best Queen Eyes
was Taylor Knecht; best Lit-
tle King smile was Jordan
Swickley; and best Little
Queen hair was Amber
Knowles.
The program began
with the opening dance
number, set to the song,
"Hangin' Tough", followed
by a dance routine per-
formed from 2007 little king
Quinton Thomas and 2007
little queen Summer Eades.
As the little contestants
readied for the question and


answer segment and formal
wear, Randi Lynn Goff sang
"Because You Love Me."
The answers from the
contestants proved the old
cliche: kids say the darndest
things. Many of the an-
swers were cute, and some
were hilarious, including, "I
want to play baseball when I
grow up so I can make lots
of money." "My favorite
person is my mom because
we look alike and when I
ask my dad for money, he
says I sound just like her
too." "I want to collect
garbage when I grow up, so
the world will be a cleaner
place."
Following a 20-minute
intermission, Thomas and
Eades took their final walk
as the 2007 little king and
queen, and Prevatt and Key
took their first walk as the
2008 little king and queen.
Serving as Co-emcees
for the pageant were Ram-
sey Revell and Dana Jane
Watt, and serving as judges
were Candace Howard,
Locklyn Tucker, and Toni
Blanton.

June Is National Adopt A Shelter Cat


FRAN HUNT
Monticello News
Staff Writer
June is Adopt a Cat
from the Jefferson County
Humane Society Shelter.
Because of the recent feline
boom in the county, the
shelter has a wide variety
of cats for adoption in a va-
riety of colors and fur tex-
tures.
Because the shelter is
currently filled to capacity
with both cats and dogs and
:is unable to house any addi-
tions, the Jefferson County
Humane Society is offering


major discounts on adop-
tions of cats and dogs,
which includes
spaying/neutering and all
up to date vaccinations.
Shelter Director Xan
Buzbee reports that there
are currently 22 felines
available at the shelter for
adoption, including eight
that are six to eight months
old and five that are ten
weeks old.
An additional ten will
be ready for adoption in
about two weeks. The usual
adoption fee is $70, but for
National Adopt a Shelter


These twin cats are lovable and playful. They need a
home and will keep you amused for hours on end. An addil
bonus is that you won't have to worry about any mice. Co
the Shelter at 342-2044.


Great Gasoline-


Giveaway!


S. Purchase select John Deere
Compact or Utility tractors
before June 7th and you'll get a

FREE $500 GAS CARD!


Cat Month, that fee has
been dropped to $50 and if a
second cat is adopted at the
same time, the adoption fee
for the second cat is $25.
There are also a num-
ber of dogs, also awaiting
adoption. These include 15
that are approximately
three months old, seven
that are six to eight months
old, and eight adults. The
normal adoption fee is $70,
however, during this adopt-
a-thon, the dogs are avail-
good able for $50 for an adult dog
intact or two canines, including
puppies, for $100.
Adopting a pet has
many advantages. Dogs are
loving, protective and dedi-
cated family members and
the cats have many pluses
as well:
Having a cat fights de-
pression and loneliness.
Cats are entertaining to
watch and fun to play with.
Cats provide companion-
ship.
Cats will cuddle up with
you oh a cold evening.
Cats are independent and
can be left alone while
you're at work.
A cat's mere presence will
ward off unwanted mice
and pests.
*, Cats are comfortable in
small spaces like apart-
ments.
Cats are very clean; they
bathe themselves!
A cat's purr is instantly
calming and relaxing.
Cats are affectionate.

* Cats are easy to house,
train, especially adult cats;
who are probably already
house trained.
* Cats bring a little bit oi
the wild into your house.
* Indoor cats ,ancd
spayed/neutered cats live
long lives, providing up td
20 years of companionship;
* Cats are cheaper t6
spay/neuter than dogs, es'
pecially big dogs.
* Taking care of a cat can
help teach a child responsi-
bility and humane values. -
* Lots of cats need good
homes; when you adopt
one, you're saving a life!
Important cat care tips in-
clude:
* Spay/neuter: If the ani-
mal shelter you adopt from
does not spay or neuter its
adopted animals, take your
cat to a veterinarian for this
simple procedure. Your cat
will actually be happier and
healthier for it, and yofu
won't have to worry later
about finding homes for a
litter of kittens.
* ID Tags: Your cat needs a
collar with an ID tag. Even
if kept inside, a cat can slip
outside, and become lost.
Include your name, address
and phone number on the
tag. .
To adopt a cat or two,.
stop by the shelter located
on Mamie Scott Drive be-
tween the water treatment
plant and Recreation Park,
or call 342-0244.
