The late Daniel
Carr Settle, publisher
and editor of the Mon-
ticello News during the
tumultuous 1960s, was
recently inducted into
the Florida Newspaper
Hall of Fame for his
contributions to the
field of journalism.
Settle was pub-
lisher/editor of the
News from 1958 until
his retirement in 1971.
He is the 37th FlOrida
newspaperman to re-
ceive the honor, which
is reserved for journal-
ists who have made sig-
nificant contributions
to the profession. The
award was announced
during a special cere-
mony at the annual con-
vention of the Florida
Press Association
(FP.4) and the Florida
Society of Newspaper
Editors (FSNE), an
event held in Orlando
the weekend of June 5-
6.
Candidates for the
honor must have been
retired or deceased for
at least three years
prior to nomination


and must have ren-
dered outstanding serv-
ice in the field of *
journalism-
Settle was promi-
nent in the state's
weekly newspaper cir-
cles from the 1930s
through the 1960s and
was a leading voice in
the Florida Press Asso-
ciation during four
decades. He served it
term as FPA president
in 1954-55 and is cred-
ited with being instru-
mental in the 1965
merger of the Florida
DailyPressAssociation
with the Florida Press
Association when he
was a FPA board mem-
ber
The FPRs website
posted biographical
sketch describes Settle
as being typical of
country editors of the
time, in that he "relied
on a job shop for most
of his income, doing all
of his own writing and
editing, and stillfiild-
ing time to be involved
in civic endeavors."

Unexpected minor
glitches in the process
have slowed progress on
the Sgt. Ernest "Boots"
Thomas memorial en-
hancement project on
West Washington Street,
but it appears that
things wU begin mov-
ing forward again soon.
Meanwhile, two other
landscapes-related proj-
ects are also moving for-
ward.
That was the word
on Tuesday, July 1, from
landscape architect
Winston Lee, who is
overseeing all three
projects. Lee is working
on the Thomas memo-
rial project with Health
Department Director
Kim Barnhn and Dr.
Jim Sledge, a boyhood
friend of Thomas and
founder of the original
memorial.
Lee said the glitches

cluded complications in
the ordering and deliv-
ery of the commemora-
tive bricks that willgo to
form a patio in front of
the monument, and
banking procedural hur-
dles in the purchase of
certain of the upgrade
elements.
"We had to wait for
some funding to get ap-
proved," Lee said,
adding that the funding
was all coming from pri-
vatecontributions.
He said the two local
banks had now pledged
to purchase the flag-
poles, which he expected
would be delivered soon,
as would the water foun-
tain and the commemo-
rative bricks. A little
concrete work and the

Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.
In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the
world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.
How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it
takes a whole box to start a campfire?
Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, 'I think I'll
squeeze these dangly things here and drink whatever comes

Who was the first person to say, 'See that chicken there? I'm
gonna eat the next thing that comes outta its butt.'

As for the circle beautification, Lee said
this project too was moving along. He said the
state now had to review the plans for accept-
ability .of the proposed plant species types
and for motorists' visibility.
Engineer Robert George also had a little
work left do on the drainage plans for the
project, Lee said. He explained that the
drainage was already dicey in the downtown
area, and the last thing that he and George
wanted was for the project to further aggra-
vate the problem.
The Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) awarded Monticello
a $160,000 grant for the beautification of the
circle about two years ago. Since the FDOT
grant funds only the construction, Lee and
George are donating their services.
The plan that Lee conceptualized calls for
the addition of numerous islands of green
space around the courthouse circle and adja-
cent public areas, as. well as the addition of
trees to break up the asphalt monotony of the
town's focal point.
Eventually, the goal is seek another
FDOT beatification grant that wn allow for
the addition of benches, gas-lit lamps and
other vintage touches to the circle, makmg it
reminiscent of an earlier era.

The full project calls for the placement of
new flags and flagpoles on either side of the
existing monument, which wU be numinat-

by a backdrop of shrubbery.
Additionally, the plan calls for the pres-
ent inscription on the backside of the monu-
ment to be removed and inscribed anew on a
granite stone that wU be placed in front of
the monument. Other planned improvements
include a bench, a water fountain and a pic-

in the community, joining such organiza-
tions as the Kiwanis Club and the First
United Methodist Church. His weekly col-
umn, titled "Meanderings", proved popular
. and captured moments of life from the
beginning of World War II through the
uproarious 60s. Two years after his 1971
retirement, doctors diagnosed Settle with
pancreatic cancer. He died on Feb. 1, 1973,
at age 66.
Just prior to the sale of the News, Settle
split the printing part of the operation and
sold it to his daughter Sue, and Lewis
Gretch, owners and operators of Monticello
Printers. Settle's two other daughters were

associated with writing.
Koonce, for example, has been a jour-

36 years as a school librarian m
Jacksonville, has written a fictional
account of Florida's early history titled "In
the Shadow of the Lone Cypress," available
at Monticello Printers.
All three daughters attended the FPA
award ceremony at the Hilton Resort at
Walt Disney World in Orlando.
And .who better to give a personal
account of Settle than Koone, an accom-
plished newspaperwoman in her own right.
Here's Koone's description of her dad: "He

manual typewriter. He took notes on any
pde hof at tnwaa adail le csle

printer's ink beneath his nails.* He was the
counselor of governors and senators, cow-
boys and fishermen."

Department and he soon found himself at
the end of a very long line of potential road
workers. When, late in the afternoon, the
foreman asked what he knew about build-

foreman hired him on the spot, saymg he
was the first honest person he'd talked to
all day. That trait of integrity was always a
part of Carr Settle's personal as well as pro-

Settle, according to Koone, participated
in the construction of Route 66, which has
come to enjoy mythical associations in
American history. It was during the high-
way's construction, in fact; that Settle met
his future wife, Florence Lou. The way it
happened, Settle sat down to eat dinner
with the road crew at a boarding house in
Sayre, OK, one evening and his server was
"a pretty young gal by the name of Florence
Lou".
"A year later, as the Great Depression
loomed, he brought his bride to Florida to
meet his parents," Koone writes.
The trip proved fortuitous and life
changing, as B .O. Bowden, publisher of the
Glades County Democrat, offered him the
position of managing editor of the paper.
The rest, as they say, is history.
When he was diagnosed with cancer in
1973, Settle "accepted the inevitable and
moved forward with faith and humor,"
Koone writes.

As word spread through the state that
he was dying, dozens of his colleagues and

the visits ended, there was almost always
laugher at a shared memory or a joke.

The VAB may, if it chooses, hire a special
magistrate to hear the petitions and make rec-

board's own full review of the all the pertinent

Salvation Army Serv-
ice Unit Youth Camp began
early Saturday, July 5 for
the county youth partici-
pating in this year's sum-
mer camp program.
The youth boarded
busses, with their chaper-
ones, for the exciting ride
to Camp Keystone in Brad-
ford County Some 500 chil-
dren were expected to
attend camp from Florida.
Memorial Missionary
Baptist Church and Fellow-
ship Missionary Baptist
Church donated their
church buses and drivers to
transport the campers back
and forth. .
The camp staff reaches
out to the children, provid-
ing them with a positive en-
vironment for their week at
camp.
The oamp experience


helps the campers to grow,
learn, and be encouraged
while striving to meet their
spiritual, social, recre-
ational, and educational
needs as appropriate
through camp ministry .
The campers expanded
their horizons and created
memories, as they took
dips in the pool, gazed at
star-filled nights, roasted
marshmallows around the
camp fire, held pillow
fights in their cabins and
cabin devotion, did emblem
work, and met up with old
friends and made new
friends.
Youth participating in-
cluded: Kayshaylia Bar-
rington, Jamari Broxie,
Takaya Broxie, Jakilia Her-
man, Janashia Jones, Mon-
ica King, Jasmine Morris,
Joshua Stephenson, and
Ladsyshia Wmiams. .

cluded Jennifer. A. Allen,

Stoutamire reiterated
the importance of making

so as to make it easier on
the family members and
loved ones during their
time of grieving, after
one's demise. "It takes a
lot of the guess work out
of the decisions, and it
will save a lot of time,
money, and anguish for
your loved ones if you are
unable to make decisions
for yourself and after you
are gone," she said. "1VIak-

she conclude.

With the hurricane sea-

Red Cross stresses the im-
portance of residents pro-
tecting their valuable
records.
Many assume that

their wEs, insurance poli-
cies, health directives, and
the like are in good shape.
Protecting family papers is
just one part of being pre-
pared to deal with natural
disasters.
An up-to-date house-
hold inventory is most im-
portant, to help document
losses for insurance com-
panies, when disaster
strikes. A proper inventory
should at least be written,
but better yet, supple-
mented withphotographs
,orvideos.
.When making the in-
ventory, do not overlook
tools stored in the garage,
lawn furniture or food in
the freezer. Likewise, it is
important to document ar-
ticles in closets or drawers,
or otherwise out of sight.
An accurate inventory
wB help you determine if
you have enough insurance
to cover the contents of
your home. It is equally im-
pOrtant to keep the inven-
tory current, as items are


updated or additional ones
acquired.
Additional copies of
valuable records should be
in the care of a lawyer, the
administrator of your will,
business associates, or
trusted family members re-
siding outside of your

care of your valuable pa-
pers increases as your -es-

If you're an investor, you may have been disap-
pointed with how the markets have been reacting
this summer to the news of high oil pnces and
Other short-term events. Nonetheless, your long-
term financial goals don't have to be jeopardig
by these losse if you know how to resposidia.0,
thertic
Here are a few moves to consider:
Stick to ur investment strategy. It's almost al-
ways a bad /doea. to make long-term investment de-
cisions in res onse to short-term market
fluctuations. f you have built a diversified portfo-
lio of quality investments, you're better off just
"staying the course" during a market decline.
(Keep in mind, though, that diversification, by it-
self, cannot guarantee or protect agamst .loss.) If
these investments were suitable for you before the
market drop, they'll still be appropriate when the
market turns around.
Don't try to "time" the market. It would be
great if you could know when the market had
reached its low or hi h oints, or which da s
would be "losers" an w ich ones "winners.' If
you had that foresight, you could always jump in
and jump out of the market at the right times.
Unfortunately, no one can make those predictions
with any accuracy. And those people who do try
to "time" the market in this manner end up jump-
ing out at the wrong times and missing both
short- and long-term market rallies. By staying in-
vested through market ups and downs, you can
make progress toward your long-term goals.
Look for buying opportunities. By definition, a
market decline means that stock prices are lower
which means on may find some good buys
,
opportunities. O course, you 11 warit to know i
the stock's price is low because of the effects of
the broad-based market decline or because of
other factors specific to the stock, such as poor
management, non-competitive products or a de-
cline in the industry to which it belongs.
While making these moves can help ou get past
the market decline, it doesn't mean t at a severe
|price drop can't affect you. If you need money to
Ipay for an unexpected cost, such as a mayor car re-
pair, you'll likely take a hit if ou have to sell
stocks when the market.has fa len substantially.
But you can avoid this problem by putting three
to six months worth of living expenses in an
emergency fund, preferably in a cash" or "cash
equivalent" account.
Nobody likes to see big declines in the stock mar-
ket. But if you're a long-term investor, you've built
an emergency fund and you've rebalanced your
portfolio to.#t your risk tolerance you'll be in a
much better position to' withstand these market
drops and you'll be well prepared for an eventual
recovery.

Bring on the Bubbly
A simple way to instill a sense of luxtiry is to treat guests to a chilled glass of
bubbly as they arrive at the reception. While champagne may be the first
sparkling wme that comes to mind, Italian Prosecco is a light, elegant summer
beverage, and the floral notes and lower alcohol content make it a classic aper-
itif tosip during ceremonies. Impress friends and family by serving Santa
Margherita Prosecco from Italy's Valdobbiadene region, home to its highest-
quality Prosecco vineyards. Its delicate blend and fruit-forward flavor sets
it apart from other bubbles, and the Santa Margherita name will set the
tone for your elegant evenmg.
Little Details
Remember to focus attention on small details to make your wedding truly
unique. Add personal influences such as flowers from your bouquet to dec-
orate cocktail trays, or integrate edible flowers into fare in colors match-
ing your palette. Pansies, marigolds or nasturtiums are simple yet
elegant, and guests will appreciate the romantic sentiment.
Favors for Friends and Family
Customize your event by offering favors that are reflective of the
big day. Give a personal gift to guests such as a favorite wine ,
-, from a vineyard that is special to the.bride and groom or de-
licious. upscale edibles from a favorite local bakery. Add an
intimate touch by designmg your own gift tags for friends
and family
Setting the Table
Center pieces pose as a focal point and contribute to the overall
m bience of a wedding. Traditional floral arrangements come to mind; .
however, a striking way to illtiminate a table is to include floating
candles in your tabletop decor. Take cues from classic style and
use bubbly as a fun and luxurious centerpiece. Chn bottles of
Santa Margherita Prosecco in viritage silver wine buckets, ,
and surround with coupe glasses to leild a sense of old-
world elegance to any table.
Over 2 million couples will say "I do" over the.
next four months, and it's easy to get ov
whelnied between the flowers, cakes and fil-
ture in-laws. Remember that there are
simple ways to make your big day pic-
ture perfect while staying true to your
wedding day dream.

ability of the organ. Experience
has also shown that people have
a tendency to be more likely to
donate organs in a commumty
where they know the individu-
als who will benefit.
As the debates continue as
to which patients should get pri-
.ority, which patients
have the greatest chance of sur-
vival and what is the signifi-
cance, if any, a patient's
personal behavior has on the
transplantation, the list of organ
needing recipients continues.to
grow. In 2007 nearly 6,000 peo-
ple died while on the waiting list
and another 26,000 patients re-
ceived transplants. Each day in
the united States alone, there are
about,79 organ transplants tak-
ing place and an average of 132
new patients being added to the;
waiting list to receive organs.
With even the survival rates
of transplant recipients increas-
ing, an average of 30 years or
more for a kidney recipient and
20 years or longer for other
organ recipients, it is essential
that the list of donors expand to
compensate the increasing need
for organs. There are no age re-
strictions and most anyone can
help regardless of previous ill-
ness. The desire to become an
organ donor can either be indi-
cated ori the individual's dri-
ver's license or state
identification card. Donors can
also simply inform relatives and
family. of their wishes to be-
come an organ donor.
For more information on
how to become an organ donor,
contact the Agency for Health
Care Administration at
www.AlyFlorida.com, or
www.FloridaHealthStat.com
for a local OPO.

waiting knowing that donation
is the gift of life.

science is more intensely scruti-
nized or subjected to such ana-
lyzation as organ
transplantation. Built upon pub-
lic trust and altruism, this
scrutiny is necessary to maintain
the public's involvement. An
organ recipient's struggle for
life is dependent on a complex,
technologically advanced allo-
cation system that links patients
with organs donated by
strangers.
Until there is a donor, there
is no ranking or patient order.
The distribution of organs is
done by matching the individual
donor to a pool of likely recipi-
ents who are determined by
blood type, size and genetic
characteristics. An-

In 1968 the Uniform
Anatomical Gift Act was insti-
gated, allowing individuals to
give the gift of organs to needy
recipients. Organs, tissue, bone,
stem cells, blood and platelets
can all be donated to local organ
procurement organizations, or
OPOs, who then match donated
organs with likely recipients
throughout the country. To date
there are more than 92,000 indi-
viduals on the wait list for do-
nated organs. Each day, for
every 77 transplants received,
there are still approximately 18
who die waiting for, the

God wants to accomplish something,
He makes a way for it.
So they started out by having
church in their living room. This was a
weekly task of removing their furni-
ture and setting up chairs but it was a
labor of love. God began to send people
and then more people until finally they
knew that God was going to have to
provide a building to meet in, which
was bigger than their present venue.
And God did provide. They began
to rent a building in the Lloyd area that
could meet their needs. When they first
saw this building it was clear that a lot
of cleaning and renovating would have
to be done to get it ready for.use as a
church.
.Again, the average person would
think, "How in the world is this going
to happen?" Tim and Beverly trusted
God to provide, and blessings came.

The Brotherhood of Christ
Church continued its scholar-
ship program for the fourth
year, awarding three $500 schol-
arships this year to graduating
seniors from Jefferson County.
This year scholarships
were awarded to Colita Rivers,
who will be attending FAMU
and studying Nursing;
Stephanie Dodson, who be
attending the University of
Florida studying pharmacy;
and William Hartsfield who
will be attending Tallahassee
Community College before
attending the University of
Florida, School of
Engineering. Stephanie


Dobson and William Hartsfield
are graduates of Aucilla
Christian Academy and Colita
Rivers is a graduate of
Jefferson County High School.
These young people were
active in their churches and
community, and were recom-
mended by both their pastors
and a teacher.
The Reverend Mal Jopling
and men from the Brotherhood
of Christ Church presented
checks to each of the students,
July 8.
The Brotherhood thanks all
who helped make the annual
gourmet dinner a success, thus
allowing the Brotherhood to
make these awards and carry
out other missions in the com-
munity.

There was this Christian lady
that had to do a lot of traveling for
her business so she did a lot of fly-
ing. But flying made her nervous so
she always took her Bible along
with her to read and it helped relax
her.
One time she was sitting next to
a man. When he saw her pull out her
Bible he gave a little chuckle and
went back to what he was doing.
After a while he turned to her
and asked "You don't really believe
all that stuff in there do you?"
The lady replied "Of course I do,


it is the Bible."
He said "Well what about that
guy that was swallowed by that
whale?"
She replied "Oh, Jonah. Yes I
believe that, it is in the Bible."
He asked "Well, how do you sup-
pose he survived all that time inside
the whale?" The lady said "Well I
don't really know I guess when I get
to heaven I will ask him."
"What if he isn't in heaven?" the
man asked sarcastically
"Then you can ask him," replied
the lady
