Two Charged in Single Vehicle Crash


FRAN HUNT
Monticello News
Staff Writer
Two young men
were charged in a sin-
gle vehicle crash Oct. 7
after abandoning the
vehicle at the site and
not reporting the inci-
dent to authorities.
Florida Highway
Patrol reported that on
Oct. 7, FHP received a
call from the Jefferson
County Sheriff's Office
reporting that a passer-
by said there might be a
vehicle out in the
woods off of US-90
west, at Old Lloyd Rd.
Deputies were first
on the scene and re-
ported that the crash
took place the previous
night (Oct. 6) because
the vehicle engine was
cool, and the driver was
nowhere to be found.
Upon running the
tag on the vehicle, FHP
discovered that the ve-


hicle be-
longed to
Garret
Long, 20, of
Jefferson
County.'
Trooper .
Jones re-
ported that
it was ap-
proximately
three to four
hours after the call was
received (8:14 a.m., Oct.
7), that he located Long.
While interviewing
Long, he reported that
at approximately 11:30
p.m. Oct. 6, he was driv-
ing his 2005 Dodge four-
door northbound on
Old Lloyd Rd., prior to
the US-90 west intersec-
tion. Long said he
reached down and by
the time he looked up,
he was already way out
in the trees.
The vehicle had run
through the stop sign at
the intersection, across


the road and approxi-
mately 100-150 feet deep
into the trees and
thicket of brush before
coming to a rest with
the front end of the ve-
hicle facing south to-
ward US-90. Long and
his passenger in the
front passenger seat,
Robert Matthew
Greiner, 22, of Talla-
hassee, were both unin-
jured in 'the crash.
Long was charged
with failure to imme-
diately report an acci-
dent, leaving the scene
of an accident, and


failure to stop at a stop
sign. The vehicle suf-
. fered total damage.
Greiner was
charged with not
wearing a seat belt and
he had a warrant for
his arrest on the
charge of violation of
probation on the
charge of driving
under the influence.
He was arrested and
transported to the Jef-
ferson County Jail
where he was booked
and placed under, a
$2,500 bond. He re-
mained in jail Oct 10.

will be the musical event on Sat-
urday, which begins 5:30 p.m. in
the Opera House with a social
hour, food, a cash bar and Hayes
singing at the piano. Fred
Beshears, alias Kihg Possum,
will be crowned sometime be-
tween' 6:45 and,7 p.m., with the
ceremony to be followed by a
concert .in the upstairs of the
Opera House.
Performing at the concert
will be Hayes, accompanied by
the Will Goble Trio, and Ander-
son, also to be accompanied by
the trio, The daughter of Attor-
ney Brian Hayes, and wife,
Paula, the now New York City-
based Hayes regularly performs
at different music venues
around the country and the
world.
The Brooklyn-born Ander-
son, meanwhile, is a recorded
artist who plays his own brand
of music, described as a mix of
traditional New Orleans jazz
and a sweeping blues style. His
1994 debut album, titled "Warm-
daddy in the Garden of Swing,"
featured all original composi-
tions.
Anderson has played with
the Lincoln Center Jazz Orches-
tra, among other renowned mu-
sicians and groups in the jazz
world. He currently performs
and teaches around the world
and is associate professor of
jazz studies at Michigan State
University.

Mayor


The decision to resign must
be made at the time that the
candidate qualifies for the new
office. Austin tendered his res-
ignation in mid June, to become
effective Nov. 3, the day before
the general election. Austin sub-
sequently lost his bid for the
School Board seat during the
Aug. 26 primary, where he failed
to get sufficient votes.
On Tuesday, Oct. 7, Austin
distributed a memo to his fellow
council members "asking for
the privilege of continuing to
serve the remainder my term."
The memo came attached
to two letters of recommenda-
tions and a petition "in support
of. Gerrold Austin completing
his term" signed by 109 persons.
The letters of recommendations
were from Scotty Ebberbach,
who worked with Austin rela-
tive to Boys and Girls Club and
the downtown cemetery repair
projects; and Kim Barnhill, di-
rector of the Jefferson County
Health Department.
Austin's request followed
Vice Mayor Tom Vogelgesang's

Courthouse


landscape architect Winston
Lee.
The project, which Lee con-
ceptualized and pretty much
spearheaded, calls for the addi-
tion of numerous islands of
green space around the court-
house circle and adjacent public
areas, as well as the addition of
trees to break up the sameness
of the asphalt. Eventually, Lee
envisions adding benches, Vic-
torian-era lanterns and other
late 19th century and early 20th
century touches to make the
focal point of the town more
picturesque and historic.
The Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT)
awarded the city a $160,000
grant for phase one of the beau-
tification project more than a
year ago. The $160,000, however,
stipulates how the'money may
be spent, with $80,000 specifi-
cally earmarked for the pur-
chase of trees. It also stipulates
that the city must contribute a
match, which amounts to
$42,442.50.
That's because the city, as
George explained, must pay for
the curbing and gutter and side-
walk and drainage improve-
ments, among other ancillary
items that the grant does not
cover.
City Clerk Emily Anderson
at first expressed confidence
that the $42,442.50 was readily
available between the Street De-
partment's budget and the city's
reserve fund. But as the discus-
sion progressed, Anderson clar-
ified her initial assessment,
especially in light of the engi-
neer's later statement that the
city's required contribution
could not be given in the form


staff will lead a parade of
revelers around the courthouse
circle to a rousing rendition of
"When the Saints Go Marching
In" by the Royal Garden Dix-
ieland Band. Carswell added
that mythical attributes sur-
round King Possum's staff,
which is purported to have orig-
inated in Europe a thousand
years ago and arrived in Monti-
cello by way of Charleston, S.C.
Go figure.
Once the parade concludes,
the JB Zydecozoo Band kicks in
a high-energy party in the
downstairs of the Opera House,
with the music and dancing ex-
pected to last until 1 a.m.
Zydeco is a an American
folk music that has its roots in
the black and multiracial
French-speaking Creoles of
south and southwest Louisiana
of the late 1800s. A fast-tempo
and upbeat call-and-response
vocal music that is accompa-
nied by accordion and a form of
washboard. known as a rub-
board, zydeco is an infectiously
joyful dancing music that is dif-
ficult to resist. Frequently, the
singer is apt to punctuate the
music with a joyful "eh toi!", a
Cajun expression that can be
variously interpreted to mean
"hey you" or "yeah man" or
"you, son of a gun".
Tickets for the evening are
$35 per person for the food,
music and party, and $10 for
only the after-concert party,
which starts at 9 p.m. Contact
the Opera House at 997-4242 for
more information.


announcement that he would be
accepting applications until
Oct. 21 from persons interested
in applying for Austin's soon-to-
be vacant seat. The only re-
sponse to Austin's request came
from Councilman John Jones.
Jones made the point that
Austin would have to apply for
the council seat the same as any
othef applicant. The letters of
recommendations and signed
petition were fine, Jones said.
But Austin would have to sub-
mit a letter of application and
go through the selection process
same as anyone else, now that
he had resigned.
"It's up to the council to de-
cide who they want," Jones
said. "You're now a nominee, to
be clear."
As City Attorney Bruce
Leinback explained the selec-
tion process on Sept. 2, Vogelge-
sang, as vice mayor,
automatically assumes the may-
orship upon Austin's departure.
It's then up to Vogelgesang to
recommend Austin's replace-
ment and for the council to con-


of labor and materials.
Even so, officials deter-
mined that the city could ulti-
mately cobble the money
together, if from a variety of
sources, including the reserve
fund and an expected $20,000 to
$25,000 reimbursement from the
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency (FEMA) for costs
that the city incurred during
the recent tropical storm.
The award, however, wasn't
made without grumblings from
some quarters. Realtor Winston
Connell, who has objected to
previous initiatives to change
the city, was one who objected.
Connell came right to the point
of his objection.
"I don't like any of this," he
said. "You're trying to change
Monticello. I like it fine just the
way it is."
One of his concerns, Con-
nell said, was that the oak trees
planted as part of the project
would grow in time and make it
impossible for 18-wheelers to
navigate the circle. He saw the
beautification project as a
stealth move by proponents of
the US 19 bypass to accomplish
their goal by other means, he
said.
Lee and George's assur-
ances that the oaks were high-
rise trees that grew upwards
rather than spreading out and
that the design ensured 18-
wheelers would be able to navi-
gate the circle did little to
convince Connell.
"I don't see anything wrong
with Monticello the way it is,"
Connell persisted. "This is just
one more step in a ruthless
takeover of redoing the town. Is
it going to benefit Monticello in


As part of his presentation,
Carswell gave a brief, if belated,
account of the Southern Music
Rising Festival, the foundation's
first-ever musical event, held in
April of this year. Carswell re-
ported that the event cost the
foundation $27,000 to put on,
drew about 3,000 visitors, in-
jected an estimated $75,000 into
the local economy, and netted
$9,000 after expenses were de-
ducted. He said that in keeping
with the foundation's stated
mission of contributing back to
the community, part of the
earnings had been distributed
to organizations such as the
Monticello Opera House, the
Jefferson County Humane Soci-
ety and the'Jefferson County
Historical Society
Carswell reiterated the
foundation's twofold mission.
He said the first aim was to pro-
mote and preserve American
music, which the foundation
sees as a depository and
medium for the transfer of so-
cial and cultural values from
one generation to the next. The
second aim, he said, was to pro-
mote low-impact economic de-
velopment that injected vitality
and viability into the local econ-
omy without destroying the
community's historic and rural
characteristics.
It is the foundation goal. ul-
timately to establish an Ameri-
can music museum here that
would draw music scholars, mu-
sicians and tourist, making
Monticello a viable and vital
destination point.

firm or deny that appointment.
In the latter case, Vogelgesang
recommends another appointee
and so on until the council fi-
nally confirms someone. Vo-
gelgesang can only recommend;
he cannot vote on the choice.
"All the mayor can do is
recommend the person," Lein-
back said. "And only members
of the council can vote on the
person."
Austin .intimated to the
News last week that he would
challenge the selection process.
He referred to Vogelgesang's
own appointment to the council
about four years ago by then
Mayor Julie Conley When Con-
ley appointed Vogelgesang, she
never consulted or got input
from the counsel, contrary to
state law and the city charter,
Austin said.
"I'm having to jump
through different hoops than he
did," Austin said.
Vogelgesang has since won
reelection to the seat, encoun-
tering no opposition in the last
election.

anyway? Better to do $42,000
worth of work on the streets
and sidewalks. This is just
throwing away money You need
to consider what you're sticking
your foot into."
C. P. Miller was another
who mildly criticized the proj-
ect, if for a different reason.
Miller took issue with the bid-
ding process and the fact that
the advertisement for contrac-
tors had been done in Tallahas-
see rather than locally. In his
estimation, local vendors had
been excluded from the process,
Miller said.
Ge6rge said state funding
required that advertising be as
broad as possible and that the
award go to the low bidder. But
he conceded that more could be
done to include local vendors in
the process and vowed to be
more cognizant in the future of
the availability of local ven-
dors. He also promised to pro-
vide B&S Utilities with a list of
local vendors who could provide
trees and shrubs for the project
or who could serve as subcon-
tractors for certain aspects of
the project.
On a related note, work is
progressing on the former Pearl
Street Park, now officially re-
named the Dr. David Jordan Me-
morial Park, in honor of the
late Dr. Jordan, a local veteri-
narian, musician and avid
reader.
The project entails the up-
grade of an existing park and
includes the addition of a
gazebo, a meditation garden,
and a pedestrian bridge, among
other things. The park is located
next to the Women's Club on
Pearl Street.

Jefferson County Village Celebrates


150 Years, Oct.


The year 1858 saw the
completion of the railroad
depot building in the spot
in Jefferson County that
came to be known as
Lloyd.
When the depot was
built, it stood where the
main north-south road
from Miccosukee to
Wacissa crossed the main
east-west road from Capi-
tola. That intersection's
importance was lost in
1918, when County Road 59
was built half a block to
the west, where the blinker
lights are now, and the
newer intersection is usu-
ally called the "Lloyd
Crossroad". The only re-
minder of the route of the
old Miccosukee to Wacissa
road is in the name of the
street that runs north from'
the depot-Main Street.
When the Pensacola to
Jacksonville railway line
was being constructed,
early settlers Walter Lloyd
and his wife Sarah donated
3 and 1/2 acres of land to
be used for a depot, and the
spot was known for a while
as "Station #2" (Station #1
being in Tallahassee) or


"Lloyd's Station", but the
town that grew up around
the depot was soon called
simply "Lloyd", and that is
the name of the traditional
community to this day.
Lloyd was a busy place
in the years after the
building of the depot, ac-
tually larger than it is
today, as it was the central
place for commerce and
business in the area, and
where local growers
brought their cotton and
produce for shipment on
the railway. It once
boasted, among other
things, a hotel, 7 general
stores, a sawmill, turpen-
tine operations, two cotton
gins,.churches and homes
and a Grange building that
eventually became .the
present Methodist church.
Mule and oxen drawn wag-
ons filled the depot
grounds that are now the
park at the crossroad.
Saturday, Oct. 25, the
Gulfwinds Chapter of the
National Historic Railway
Society and the Lloyd
Community Preservation
Trust will host a celebra-
tion of Lloyd's 150 years.

FOUND


EFFERSON


COUNTY


FRAN HUNT
Monticello News
Staff Writer
Yogi has found his "pic-
nic basket" is practically
the consensus concerning
a black bear that has been
frequenting a particular
area in the county and has
unnervingly, and fearlessly
been coming closer and
closer to -the local rest-
dences in search of food,
which he is apparently
finding in abundance.
Three area residents
gave accounts of their par-
ticular encounters with the
bear early Saturday morn-
ing.
Ferrell Hamrick, who
resides just south of the In-
terstate off of US-19, re-
ported, that the incident
began, at approximately
12:30 a.m., he was awak-
ened from a deep sleep. "I
heard some slamming and
banging and it made a heck
of a racket," said Hamrick.
"I didn't put.on my glasses
or turn on the porch light, I
grabbed the flashlight and
stepped outside the door,.
thinking it was a possum
or something because
we've had problems with
them before."
Once he was outside,
Hamrick said he saw the
form of a small animal
with it's head in the cat.
food container on .the,
porch and at first, he
thought it was a miniature
pony and called to his wife
to come and look, and he
began thinking who would
have one of those out here.
The animal was just a few
feet away from where he
stood.
"I hollered, and it
poked its head out of the
container as'if to say: You
yellin' at ME?" then stuck
its head back down. I
hollered again, and it
raised its head and looked
at me and put its head back
into the container," said
Hamrick, who added he
could see nothing of the
animal other than the form
and the glowing eyes in the
beam of the flashlight.
"The third time I
hollered, I took a step to-
wvard it and stamped my
foot and it reared up on its
hind legs and growled at
me and it was right then, I
realized, it was a bear!"
said Hamrick. "I hurried
up and got back in the
house. I didn't think I could
move that fast! He made a
real believer out of me.
That rascal tried to get
me."
Hamrick reported that
at about 3:30 a.m., "I heard
another ruckus outside, so
I got up, turned on the
porch light and looked out-
side, and he was in the
yard again. The cat food
was scattered everywhere
and the neighbor's dogs
were raising cane."
Hamrick said upon in-
vestigation after sun up, he
found where the bear had
ripped the cat food storage
container open, and where
he had torn two of the
wood enclosure slats off of
the porch railing to gain
entry. "There were also
scratch marks on a couple
of the other slats," he
added. "I called the
wildlife people and they
said there was nothing
they could do and they told
me to remove the food,"
said Hamrick. "That bear


sure has a good thing
going," he added.
; He added that upon
talking with his neighbors
during the course of the
weekend, they also re-
ported encounters with the
same bear, as Yogi has a
wide circle of friends.
Brett Kelly said his en-
counter began shortly after
the first time Yogi visited
Hamrick. He wasn't quite
sure of the time, but he
heard his dogs barking re-
lentlessly and he got out of
bed to investigate. "I
turned on the floodlights
and I saw the bear in the
woods and he walked
through the back of our
field," said Kelly. "I
brought the dogs inside
and let them back out a lit-
tle later."
After returning to
sleep, Kelly heard his dogs
"going crazy" again and he
got out of bed to investi-
gate. I don't know why the
bear is out there. I have
fruit trees and chickens
and some times when I get
too tied up to stop by the
dump, I have bagged trash
in the back of my truck,"
said Kelly "I don't know
why he's coming around,
but it seems, he sure loves
this place." Kelly added
that of all the times he had
seen bears in the area, this
,was the firs-t time he had
ever seen one as clbse as
that particular anima was.
"For some reason, it
seems like all of the stories
Ihear about bears recently-
are from this area," he
adtled.
Pam Kelly, Brett's
mother, was the third to en-
counter the bear during
the course of the night.
"Brett called me at 1:43
a.m. Saturday Sand said
there was a big bear
headed in my direction and
to check my. dogs," said
Pam. "My two Beagles
were okay, and I had
opened my bedroom win-
dows, which are low to the
ground and my first
thought was to close
them," she said. "I didn't
want a bear getting into.
the house and getting into
the refrigerator or some-,
thing." She said she soon
heard the dogs "going
crazy", and she knew the
bear was pretty close.
Though she did not ac-
tually see the animal, she
did find evidence after
daylight that he had in-
deed been there. "I keep
the cat food bowl up high
where the dogs can't get to
it, and it had been pulled
down and the cat food was
scattered everywhere,"
said Pam.
Florida Wildlife Com-
mission offers some tips
and suggestions to avoid
human/bear conflicts:
Seeing a wild bear is a
rare sight that eludes
most Floridians. When
bears are seen in the wild,
it's usually the back end
as they run away. If you
do see a bear, leave it
alone, watch it from a safe
distance, and let it pass.
Most of the--time bears-
sense you and sneak away
before you even know
they are there.
While there are no


documented bear attacks
in Florida, black bears are
large, powerful creatures,
and they have attacked
people in other states.


upioi


-r -
Problems arise when
bears are fed by or find
food near human habita-
tion.
Do not feed bears! ....
Sometimes they. ap-
pear gentle but, like alli-
gators, once bears lose
their natural fear of peo-
ple, and become habitu-
ated, they may become
dangerous. It is illegal to
intentionally feed bears
in Florida (FWC Rule
68A-4.001).
Leaving pet food on a
porch or in the yard or
purposely feeding bears
will eventually cause
problems for you, your
neighbors, and the bears.
The most common at-
traction is leaving
garbage where bears can
get it. Store your garbage
in a shed, garage, or
other reinforced con-
tainer, and wait until the
morning of pickup to put
it out for collection. You
can purchase or build
your own bear-proof
garbage containers.
Once bears find food,
they will continue to re-
turn for the easy forag-


ing, potentially causing
damage to property in
their search. For more
suggestions on how to re-
.duce bear problems, read
the online fliers and pam-
phlets: Bears and Human
Food Attractants, If You
See a Bear in your Com-
munity, Living in Bear
Country, A Homeowner's
Guide and Living with
Florida's Black Bear.
Remember, bears will
investigate items that you
'may not think are bear
food,, such as: motor oil,
barbeque grills, and live-
stock feed. The swamp
and upland habitats of
Florida black bears are
also good habitat for hon-
eybees and popular spots
for deer feeders.
The best way to pre-
vent bear raids on api-
aries (or other
structures) is to sur-
round it with a well-
maintained electric
fence. For help in mini-
mizing bear damage 1to
deer feeders, read FWC's

plaque commemorating his 30 years with the Road De-

William Nobles Retires

After 30 Years On Job
Couny Hoin Nble oI i


LAZARO ALEMAN
Monticello News
Senior Staff Writer
After 30 years of service
to the county William Nobles,
a Road Department motor
grader operator, relinquished
the keys to his beloved ma-
chine effective Sept. 30 in
order to pursue the pleasures
of retirement.
Commission Chairman
Felix "Skeet" Joyner recog-
nized Nobles' contribution to
the county during a recent
ceremony at the Beau Turner
Youth Conservation Center
that also honored the numer-
ous public and private sector
employees who participated
in emergency operations qur-
ing and in the aftermath of
tropical storm Fay .
As part of the recogni-
tion, Joyner presented Nobles
with an especially inscribed
plaque that noted the latter's
many years of service to the
county Additionally, a repre-
sentative of the Caterpillar
Company presented Nobles
with a miniature model of the
CAT motor grader that No-
bles operated, along with a
CAT jacket and work gloves
for "honey-do" projects.
Road Department Super-
intendent David Harvey told
Nobles that he would keep a
spare set of motor grader
keys on-hand at the shop for
Nobles, in case retirement
proved boring and Nobles
"got an urge to blade a road".
Nobles politely declined the
offer with a smile. It said
something of Nobles' work
ethics and quality of work,
however, that Harvey would
' make the offer.
"It's been a real pleasure
working with you during the
last six years," Harvey said.


Nobles came to work with
the Road Department in July
1978, starting out as a laborer
and working his way up to
truck driver and finally
-motor grader operator, a job
he took pride in.
"I'm going to miss doing
the roads," Nobles told the
News.
Road building was some-
thing that he took pleasure in
doing, he said. There was
something creative about tak-
ing a road that was destroyed
or "tore up" and building it
up and "beautifying" it, he
said.
"There's a right way of
doing so that it lasts a long
time,' Nobles said, expressing
a sentiment common to indi-
viduals who take, pride, in. -
their work, whatever the en-
deavor. "Idon't like to do patch
work. I like to fix it right."
A county native, Nobles -
served in the military a total
of seven years prior to coming
to work with the county Dur-
ing his military service, he
saw action in Vietnam, where
he was wounded at least
,twice, earning him the Purple
Heart, Bronze Star and other
honors.
"I was wounded in the leg
once and in the arm at a dif-
ferent time," the soft-spoken
Nobles said, adding that he
was drafted at age 19, shortly
after graduating from Howard
Academy
The 60-year-old Nobles
and his wife, Ruby have two
grown children: Teneka, now
30; and William Junior, 28.
His plans after retire-
ment?
"I plan to do a little travel-
ing and get back into fishing,"
- Nobles said.

Here's a "Checklist" for
Surviving a Financial Crisis

Provided by Robert J. Davison
Over the past few weeks, the news has been almost incompre-
hensible. It's hard for many of us to make sense of the failure
of major Wall Street firms and large banks and the $700 bil-
lion hailout ,othe Tinmncial sector And it's hard for investors
to be calm when stocks have fallen almost 30 percent from
r h eiE .l'3hd ai.eyar sider the following "checklist" for surviving a financial crisis:
Close your ears but open your eyes. These days, you
may hear some so-called "experts" talking about end-of-
capitalism scenarios. Try not to listen to these doomsayers. We
still have the most powerful economy in the history of the
world and we will recover from these setbacks. However, even
if you close your ears, you should keep your eyes wide open.
Specifically, look for opportunities. Stock prices are down now,
but they won't always be and, all else being equal, investors
who buy into the stock market at lower prices are likely to
earn higher returns than those who buy stocks when prices are
higher.
Focus on things you can control. During a financial
crisis, your success at weathering the storm depends on your
ability to stay calm and concentrate on the things you can
control. For example, you can control your emotions so that
you aren't panicked into making.unwise, short-term decisions,
such as putting all your money under your.mattress. And, to a
certain extent, you can even.control your portfolio's ability to
withstand volatility. How? By diversifying your holdings as
broadly as possible. The wider your range of investments, the
less you'll be hurt by downturns that primarily affect one asset
class. (Keep in mind, though, that diversification, by itself,
cannot guarantee profits or protect against loss.)
__ Review and rebalance your portfolio. During this mar-
ket decline, some of your holdings have probably fallen more
than others. As a result, you may now own a lower percentage
of a specific asset class than you had originally intended when
you built your portfolio. Consequently, you may want to meet
with your financial advisor to determine if you should rebal-
ance your portfolio by adding more money to those, asset classes
that have fallen the most. You may also want to rebalance if
your risk tolerance or long-term goals have changed.
Look for quality investments. In this economic envi-
ronment, it's more important than ever to focus on quality in-
vestments. If you buy stocks, look for those companies with
strong balance sheets. If you're purchasing bonds, stick with
those that receive high credit ratings. If we are entering a pro-
longed economic downturn, these types of investments will, in
all likelihood, fare better than lower-quality stocks and bonds.

Be patient. No one can predict when a bear market will
end, but history has shown that turnarounds can happen
quickly and unexpectedly. So be patient. The most successful
investors have the courage to stay the course and take advan-
tage of opportunities while others are "bailing out" of the fi-
nancial markets.
We may still have some rough roads ahead of us. But if you can
check off every item on this list, you may be able to smooth
out some of the bumps you'll encounter on your journey toward
achieving your long-term goals.

Employees all over the world
celebrate Boss Day, so as to
make their supervisor feel his
worth in the life of his employ-
ees.
However, whether they cele-
brate it with their heart or just
for the heck of it is something
that is
totally dependent on their boss
and his behavior towards his
juniors. In fact, being a boss,
who is worthy of the boss day
celebration, depends largely on
the individual. A boss should be
compassionate towards his
employees. He must be a
considerate person who tries to
understand the problems of his
juniors.

A boss should act according to
situations, being a taskmaster
at one time and a happy gleeful
senior at the other time. It is
the impression that one leaves
on employees which goes ahead
to make him count as one of the
great bosses. Boss Day is the
time to show your respect and
gratitude to your boss, espe-
cially if he has all the qualities
mentioned above. So, on the
occasion of this Boss Day, try to
make him feel special as well as
appreciated for the efforts that
he has put in for making his'
juniors responsible workers.

At the home of Pierce Tudor, the splinted remains of the gazebo floor after being
slung into trees about 100 feet away, lay amongst the debris from snapped, broken,
and twisted-off trees


Monticello News Photo By Fran Hunt October 9, 2008
Debris from the gazebo, including refrigerator and galvanized cans full of fish and
duck and geese food, as well as snapped off trees and limbs, lay about the north side of
the Pierce Tudor property on Paul Thompson Rd.


Tornado Touchdown Causes Damage


FRAN HUNT
Monticello News
Staff Writer
A brief tornado touch-
down last week caused dam-


age, in the 5000 block of Paul
Thompson Rd., off of White-
house Rd. in Jefferson County.
S-'elr.-d i idencdio iw n thee
area sustained downed trees


and limbs, but the encounters
of father, Pierce Tudor and his
son across the street, Ronald,
were _quite different.
Pierce Tudor said that it


all began at 4:45 p.m., Oct. 8,
when he put his little female
Chihuahua outside. "Shortly
afterward, she started really
acting up," said Pierce. "She
was screaming, hot barking,
but screaming. I have never
heard her holler like that. I let
her inside and she wouldn't let
me pick her up which is very
unusual. She was really upset,
acting nervous and skittish
and shaking really bad. Chi-
huahuas shake all the time
anyway, but this was really
bad. I thought maybe the.cat
had hurt her, but he ,was
nowhere around.
"I looked out the window
and I could see the trees in the
back all bent over, and a few
seconds later, at about 5:05
p.m., the power went out," said
Pierce. "I heard a noise a cou-
ple minutes before the lights
went out and the house shook
for about 15-20 seconds and
that was it.
"It was all over so quick. I
had the radio on and it didn't
sound a siren or anything be-
fore it happened," he said.
Pierce added that about 45
minutes later, his neighbor
called him and advised him
that he had a lot of trees down
and his gazebo was gone.
She also reported that
part of his gazebo, which had
been securely hurricane
strapped into the ground, was
in her yard and he found out
shortly afterward, part of the
gazebo was over in his son's
yard, about 2,000 feet away and
across the street.
Upon investigating the
damage, Pierce found that
park style benches he had
neatly placed about different
areas of the property had been
picked up and tossed as much
as 100-200 feet away, his boat
and boat landing in the pond
were gone.
The dock had been ripped
out and destroyed, and the
boat was several hundred feet
away laying in the yards up-
side down. Six large pear tress
approximately 15-20 feet tall
were snapped off at the base.
Four large 30-gallon and four
small 10-gallon galvanized
cans which were full of fish
food and corn for his ducks
and geese, had been picked up
and tossed across the ground
about 200 feet away.
Evidence was seen where
the gazebo had been entirely
picked up and had smashed
into the trees on the north side
of the property, at which
point, the gazebo splintered.
The small refrigerator inside


of the gazebo also tossed out
into the yard. Pieces of the tin
roof from the top were scat-
tered about and two large
pieces of tin were in the trieeg,
one piece about 50 feet up inti
a tree and the second, approx-
imately 80 feet up into a tree.
Many large trees, most of
which were about 18 inches in
diameter, had been snapped
off, twisted off, or entirely up-
rooted along the northern side
of the property The fence
stood unharmed, yet a tree
had smashed down on the
gate, damaging it also.
"I think the tornado also
took a lot of the water out of
the pond, because the Bream
which are normally out there
at the surface, were all gone,"
said Pierce. He added that his
son also checked his roof for
any damage and found where
there had indeed been some
minimal damage done.
He estimated that there
was a total of $5,000 damage to
the gazebo, about $3,000 to the
shed out back where he parked
his cars which was destroyed
when trees were downed on
top. of it crushing it, and ap-
proximately $200-$300 damage
to the boat landing, not to
mention all of the debris re-
moval, damage to the roof, and
other damage sustained.
"I was very lucky," said
Pierce. "I was in the house,
sitting at the window, the tor-
nado blew around the back of
the house and around to the
side and never touched the
house. It could have been-
worse than it was. I was very
lucky"
Damage was also signifi-
cant at the home of Ronald
and Deborah Tudor across the
street. Deborah told of being
in the house alone when the
tornado struck.
She reported that things
began happening at her home
at about 5:10 p.m. "I could hear
what sounded like a train com-
ing outside of the window,"
said Deborah. I could hear a
heavy wind blowing and our
dog was acting strange. His
ears were all perked up, he
seemed kind of hesitant, and
he was totally out of charac-
ter," said Deborah. "I knew
what was happening so I went
to the closet and got inside. I
didn't come out until about
five minutes later when it was
all over."
She said that she called
Pierce to ensure that he was
all right and then she went to
inspect the damage.
"There was probably


about 8-10 large trees that
were about,. 50-75 years old,
completely uprooted, some
trees were snapped off and
some were twisted' off," she
said.
"There was a small bunch
of trees that were all down
. and the really strange thing,
we have a Purple Martin
feeder and it and the gourds
were all still intact and un-
harmed. I even found a rail-
road crossing sign up against
the front porch and we don't
have a crossing around here.
We have no idea where it came
from," she said. Upon further
investigation, she also found
where the mailbox had been
ripped from the post.
Ronald, with chainsaw'in,
hand afterward said the only
damage he found to the home
was four shingles missing, but
there were manSy trees to be
cut and removed.
"You can tell people wheri
you write the story, that I'll
cut it. I won't split it or clean
their fireplaces, but if they
come out here, they can take
all of it they want," said
Ronald. "And if anyone has
their own chainsaw, they can
carry off every bit of it they
cut," he quipped.
On Oct. 9, the National
Weather Service in Tallahas-
see sent survey teams to
southeast Alabama and into
the Florida big bend to assess
damage by the storms from
Wednesday, October 8th..
These teams confirmed five
tornadoes and one area of sig-
nificant straight-line wind
damage within our county
warning area.
The survey conducted on
Thursday in Jefferson County,
near the Leon County line in-
dicated that a brief tornado
touchdown occurred about
three miles south southwest
of Lloyd. The tornado damage
occurred about 0.2 miles
south of Whitehouse road
along Paul Thompson road. ;
In this area several large
pine trees were snapped with
a few uprooted. A 12-footby 12-
foot gazebo was completely de-
stroyed. This tornado was
rated an EF-1 with winds of 90
miles per hour. The tornado
weakened moving off to the
north and dissipated before
crossing Whitehouse road.
The tornado width was
estimated to be 50 to 75 yards.
Both families agree that
with the tornado passing so
very close to their homes, the
damage could have been much
worse than it actually was.

'C.:


A very important dynamic in wor-
ship is one's prayer life. The Bible
/ speaks to us often in this area. In fact.
S. e read in Luke 18:1 where Jesus used
a parable to "show them that they
Should always pray and not give up"
During the Sunday evening serv-
ice. we were reminded that worship is
not to be seen as a -ubject: rather. wor-
ship is an action that the Redeemed of
the Lord fulfill. We are worshippers of
God; we worship Him. But how can %we
say we worship God when we seem to
have so little time to pray?
We can reference several Biblical
prayer models, and each is valuable to
our understanding of the importance
Sof an active prayer life. even as we
come to worship God. One of the mod-
els is a familiar passage: 2 Chronicles
7:14: "If mny people, who are called by
my name, will htunble themselves and
pray and seek my face and turn from
their wicked ways, then \will I heari
from heaven and will forgive their sin
and will heal their land."
First, we need to make certain that
we belong to Him, ("My people") and
we can settle that in a prayer time by
asking Jesus to come into our lives and
be outr Savior and Lord. There are
many gods in this world, buit only One


Wednesday, October 15, 2008

God. the Lord God, whom we serve. He
IS God. and He reigns supreme' There
is no other like Him. and what a privi.
lege we have to go to Him in prayer!
Another lesson here is that no one
can come to Christ unless God draws
that person to Him iJohn 6:4-11. Hence.
the people of God. called by His name.
to humbly come' before Him in prayer
to seek God's face and turn from their
wicked ways.. When we get serious
about worshipping God, we are going
to have to take a close look at our per.
sonal lives and the sins that we need to
confess and the sins that we music turn
away from, that is, if we are serious
about our relationship with God. And
we confess our sins to God through our
prayers.
I have a friend who frequently
sends quotations and verses on differ-
ent aspects of worship. and in one of
those quotes, he stated (as a quote from
author Elmer Towns book, "Putting an
End to Worship Wars"i that "True wor-
ship is always measured by the
response of the believer's heart to
God"
Regarding prayer. I immediately
thought about what my friend had told
me in regards to worship

Staff Writer
The Blessing of the Animals and
Feast of St. Francis of Assisi was held
Sunday, Oct, 5 at the Christ Episcopal
Church with Father Mal Jopling. offi-
ciating the service.
- Many attended with their pre-
cious pets, and a few farm animals, to
have them prayed upon and blessed.
Songs were sung, prayers were
said, and a Bible lesson was given


from the Book of Genesis, verse 1:24-
25.
Thoughts for St. Francis Day: "If
you have men who will exclude any of
God's creatures for the shelter of com-
passion and pity, you will have men
who will deal likewise with their fel-
low men." St. Francis of Assisi.
Father Jopling took the time to
visit each animal.
Deacon Roy Lima gave a guarding
angel charm to each blessed animal,
to add to their collar collection.

OBESE WITH KNOWLEDGE OR FIT WITH WISDOM?


By: Jan Merop
Statistics say that we have become
an obese nation. While feeding the
flesh, we have starved the cells of nec-
essary nutrients resulting in an alarm-
ing increase of diseases both in adults;
and, appallingly, in children.
We are a nation rich in food, yet,
poor in health. Why is this?
Distasteful and harmful chemi-
cals, pesticides, antibiotics, hormones,
colors, and preservatives hide in our
over-processed foods and somehow
become palatable. Sedentary lifestyles
add to the problem.
But a new craving has arisen an
appetite for fitness. People want to feel
better and rely less on medication.
Organic foods are in demand; quality
supplementation has increased; and
more and more individuals and fami-
lies are seeking outdoor activities.
Fitness benefits every individual,
family, community and, ultimately, our
nation.
Another form of obesity has slow-
ly crept upon us, though, and has hid-
den our vulnerability and limitations.


We are overweight with knowledge.
Through books and the internet,
so much information is available to us
that we have become exceptionally
smart. But the disadvantage is that
untruths (like additives) are often
slipped into the verbiage.
We might not ingest it so easily if
we could find the hidden meanings.
But, discernment becomes illusive
when we fill our minds and forget our
spirits resulting in an imbalanced,
unhealthy view of life.
Knowledge isn't wisdom.
Could a new craving for, wisdom
take a bite out of. knowledge for knowl-
edge's sake? Are we finally ready to be
fit with wisdom rather than swallow-
ing whole all that comes our way?
As we watch industries and lead-
ers crumble those who might have
had our respect and admiration for
their educations, financial success and
leadership we are awakened to traits
that are lacking; but which deserve
even more respect. They are character,
loyalty trustworthiness and integrity
When an accumulation of knowl-


edge and education leads us away from
these valuable attributes, we are work-
ing- outside of wisdom... "always
learning and never able to come to the
knowledge of truth." (2 Timothy 3:7,
NKJV). Eventually, it catches up and
the fallout is staggering.
Wisdom, on the other hand, is
truth applied. Not an advanced form
of knowledge, education or intense
insight. Rather it is practical applica-
tion knowing how to live responsibly
in ways that benefit others.
A good place to look for wisdom
is in the,Bible where the book of
Proverbs is written "to know wis-
dom." (Proverbs 1: 2).
Wisdom touches all aspects of life
such as living morally and raising
moral children; integrity in finances;
making right choices; being industri-
ous and honest; putting others first;
communication; successful relation-
ships; seeking wise counsel; account-
ability in essence, the art of living.
Who knows how much of the trou-
bles now facing our nation could have
been avoided if those in responsible


positions had not abused knowledge,
but would have applied wisdom.
The blame cannot rest on one
administration alone. It must be
shouldered by the many who have
governed and made decades of deci-
sions that have led to obesity in gov-
ernment,
Watching the Presidential
debates, one can consume more
knowledge and information than it's
possible to digest in an evening.
That is when it may be necessary to
'push away from the information
table' and humbly come to a Higher
Authority.
Only God knows hearts and can
give us wisdom and discernment. As
we consider each candidate's visions
and solutions, let's do so in light of
who he is as a leader; with whom he
associates; his character under pres-
sure; and trustworthiness.
Lean fitness in government exer-
cised through godly wisdom and
integrity in government leaders will
benefit individuals, families, commu-
nities and our nation.

Cont. From Page 2B
The movement of God in my life as
well as those around me always leads me
to pray, if only just to thank Him for His
tremendous blessings. Another Biblical
prayer model would certainly be the
Lord's Prayer. (Luke 11) "Our Father
which are in heaven, Hallowed be Thy
name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be
done, as in heaven, so in earth. Give us
day by day our daily bread. And forgive
us our sins; for we also forgive every one
that is indebted to us. And lead us not
into temptation; but, deliver us from
evil."
Right from the beginning of this
prayer, we see that Christ is teaching us'
to worship God: "Our Father, which art
in heaven, hallowed be Thy name."
When we come to the place where we
reckon ourselves as sinners saved by the
wonderful grace of Jesus a gift from
God's hand sinners at the mercy of the
God of Creation, we will worship Him.
We will pray to His name with adoration
and thanksgiving upon our lips and in
our hearts, as we respond to what He
has done for us. We will ask Him to show
us His will and pledge ourselves to
accomplishing it.
We will tell our heavenly Father
"thank you' for taking care of us, and we
will ask Him to forgive for our sins. Our


'- / ttial


prayer to God will be a request for His
continued grace and guidance and pro-
tection as we follow Him. Indeed, how
can one say he has worshipped God
without an active prayer life? I want to
finish this writing with a quote from Dr.
A.C. Dixon, who said, "When we rely
upon organization, we get what organi-
zation can do; when we rely on educa-
tion, we get what education can do;
when we rely upon eloquence, we get
what eloquence can do. And so on. But
when we rely upon prayer, we get what
GOD can do." Beloved, pray without
ceasing! (1 Thess. 5:17)
Sunday was a great day to be in the
house of the lord! Thank you to all of
our worship leaders for the beautiful
songs of praise. In the past days, we
have heard from Epiphany, Charlie and
Regina Cline, and Edna Eleazer as they
,shared very heart-felt songs. We praise
the lord for all of our musicians.
Thank you for your service to God.
Now is the time to join a choir as work
gets underway for Christmas. When you
pray, ask the lord about your place of
service as a worship leader, and come
and help us lift His great name to praise!
Let us exalt Him with our prayers and
praises of adoration and thanksgiving!
Always yours with a Song, Brother
Daryll
