LAZARO ALEMAN

Embarq is inviting
county residents who are
interested in getting high-
speed Internet service to
a dinner and signup event
at the Jefferson County
Courthouse Annex from 5
to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov.
12.
The courthouse
annex is located at 450 W
Walnut Street, just south


of the historic Jefferson
County High School A-
Building and north of the
Jefferson County Public
Library
Embarq reportedly
will have food available
for attendees and will pro-
vide maps and other in-
formation on the
available high-speed In-
ternet service area. Resi-
dents wanting to sign up
for the service can also do
so at this time.


High-Speed
The deployment of pr
high-speed Internet serv- Cc
ice in areas of the county Se
where the service was tic
previously unavailable ag
results from a letter that in:
county officials wrote to thE
Embarq earlier this year. sta
In the letter, the local offi- ca
cials asked Embarq to na
consider expanding its by
high-speed Internet capa- 20(
abilities here. cir
The company re-
sponded with a formal pe

esentation before the
iunty Commission on
pt. 4. At the presenta-
on, Embarq Area Man-
er William M. McCloud
formed local officials
at it was his goal to in-
all high-speed Internet
abilities in the desig-
ted areas of the county
the end of December
08, barring unforeseen
rcumstances.
Maps that Embarq
rsonnel displayed at


the presentation showed
that the upgrade target
area consisted of an in-
verted triangle roughly
stretching from just out-
side Monticello (with US
90 as the northernmost
boundary) to near the
Leon County line on the
west and US -27 on the
south.
Maps showing the
specific service area
should be available
Wednesday evening.


Jefferson

County Goes
From One To
Three Parks









Residents t

Asked To Name e

One Park

LAZARO ALEMAN
Monticello News
Senior Staff Writer
People in the com-
munity now have an op-
portunity to name the
county's next-to-newest
park, heretofore infor-
mally called the 'horse
arena'.
Oh yes, the county
now has or better yet,
will soon officially have
- three recreational fa-
cilities. The first is the
longstanding Mamie
Scott Drive park, which
is currently undergoing
an upgrade. The second
is the 'horse arena'
(about to go into con-
struction) at the Green
Industries site off US 90
some five miles west of
Monticello. And the
third is the just-pur-
chased 10-acre parcel at
the head of the Wacissa
River, just south of
Wacissa and SR-59.
But back to the nam-
ing of the horse arena
park: Officials want res-
idents and school chil-
dren to propose a name
for the location, which
name they plan to adopt
formally at the Nov. 20
evening meeting. That
means residents must
get their proposals to
the county by Nov. 19 at
the latest.
One name already
under consideration is
"College Park", in recog-
nition of the part that
North Florida Commu-
nity College played in
the county's acquisition
of the property. The
other key player in the
county's acquisition of
the property and the
construction of the

Impact Fees Questioned

In Hard Economic Times
Citizens Group May Call For Moratorium On Fees


LAZARO ALEMAN
Monticello News
Senior Staff Writer
Impact fees gener-
ally aren't popular with
developers, homeown-
ers and those in the con-
struction industry, given
that these one-time
charges are levied
against new construc-
tions as a way of ensur-
ing that newcomers help
pay for the cost of
growth.
Even so, little oppo-
sition was heard locally
when the Jefferson
County Commission im-
posed fire and ambu-
lance impact fees a few
years back, or when it
imposed the law enforce-
ment and transportation
impact fees most re-
cently.
But with the current
economic downturn, re-
duced construction ac-
tivity and lower
business inventories, a
group of localresidents
calling themselves Citi-
zens for a Strong Econ-
omy has taken notice of
the fees. On Thursday
morning, Nov. 6, several
members of the group
approached the County
Commission, with Paul
Michael the designated


spokesman.
"We've got some 200
people who are inter-
ested in this issue,"
Michael told commis-
sioners. "Impact fees
have increased the bur-
den on construction.
This is a huge increase
and it came at a bad
time, with the national
economy going into de-
cline. Some of our major
businesses here are off
by as much as 50 per-
cent. That's what
brought us here today.
But before we solidify
our position, we want to
pose some questions to
the board, so that we can
better understand the
issue."
Michael proceeded,
to ask a lengthy series of
questions, touching on
the history, justification
and applicability of the
impact fees, among
other things.
Commissioners, for
their part, gave a
lengthy and detailed ex-
planation of the history
of, and rationale for, im-
pact fees.,

man Felix "Skeet"
Joyner offered that the .

Fire Rescue Chief Jim
Billberry; starting to put
pieces of long-term plan
into effect.
LAZARO ALEMAN
Monticello News
Senior Staff Writer
It's been in the plan-
ning stage for a while
now, but it appears that
the Lloyd Volunteer Fire
Department (LVFD) is
finally going to get its


own ambulance, which
in effect will expand
Fire Rescue's capabili-
ties tremendously.
Fire Rescue Chief
Jim Billberry on Thurs-
day, Nov. 6, formally in-
formed the County
Commission of his plan
to put an ALS (Ad-
vanced Life Support)
ambulance at the LVFD
station something
that he has been con-
templating ever since he
assumed command of
the department in April


of this year.
The LVFD has con-
sistently been one of the
county's most active vol-
unteer fire departments,
partly a result of its
strategic location next
to 1-10 (where auto acci-
dents occur frequently)
and in an area of the
county that is one of the
fastest growing.
Bilberry's reasoning
is that not only is an am-
bulance needed at Lloyd

Citizen Recalls Caring People In County


Dear Editor:
I taught at Jefferson Elementary
School for 26 years. When I began teach-
ing, I was young, and without extra
money. Economic times were difficult,
and the country was in deep recession.
There were children who needed
warm clothes and food. Many had med-
ical needs and couldn't afford a doctor.
Some of us in the school system attempt-
ed to help the needy.
Jeweldeen Kerr was the cafeteria was
manager. She fed hungry children break-
fast, even though there was no breakfast
program. She was criticized for exceeding
her budget. Kerr cared more about hun-
gry children than criticism. She gave
double lunch helpings to students not
likely to have food at home.
Stephen C. (Hoot) Walker was princi-
pal. When students had no jackets or
shoes, I would ask him to take them to
Braswell's store and get them something.
Forrest Brown owned the store. Walker


and Brown would get the children what
they needed, and later they would have to
approach the Kiwanis Club and other
civic organizations to ask for money to
pay for the items.
Many families could not afford med-
ical care. School Nurse Gladys Roann
would take the children to Dr. Ward and
tell him to send me the bill. He always
treated them and sent medicine home
with them. I never received a bill.
Roann is a one woman social service
agency. She is well known for her kind
deeds.
I often think about these times, and
thought that the family and friends of
Kerr, Walker, Brown, Roann and Ward,
might like to know how much they con-
tributed to the quality of life for many
Jefferson County children.

How Landowners are affected:


A pipeline normally requires a permanent 50-foot wide right-of-way.
During construction, FGT will need an additional 50-75 feet of workspace next
to the permanent right-of-way. FGT may also need temporary workspace in
certain areas, such as road, railroad, or stream crossings, to accommodate
particular construction activities. Property owners are entitled by law to receive
compensation for having a pipeline on their property. FGT will negotiate with
the property owners to receive approvals with a signed easement for needed
property rights.
To the extent that FGT is unable to negotiate easement rights with
landowners whose property the pipeline construction impacts, such easement
rights may be determined in accordance with the eminent domain laws of the
state in which your property is located.
How to obtain additional Information:
Additional information including the application and a publication
entitled An Interstate Natural Gas Facility on My Land? What Do I need to know?
is available through the FERC website, www.ferc.gov using the"For
Citizens" link. For assistance, please contact the FERC Online Support at

FLORIDA GAS TRANSMISSION COMPANY
PROPOSES A PIPELINE EXPANSION TO
SUPPLY YFLORIDA'S CLEAN ENERGY NEEDS
The Filing October 31st
On October 31, 2008, Florida Gas Transmission Company, LLC (FGT)
filed an application for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity with
the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to construct an expansion
of its existing interstate pipeline system. The project has been designated the
Phase VIII Expansion Project and has been assigned Docket No. CP09-17-000
at the FERC.
Florida Gas Transmission your clean energy partner
FGT is Florida's leader in providing clean energy solutions, safely and
reliably. FGT is an interstate natural gas pipeline with offices in Maitland,
Florida and Houston, Texas and employees at field offices along our pipeline
system. FGT operates a 4,900-mile pipeline system that runs from South Texas
to Homestead, Florida. FGT has been supplying the majority of Florida's
natural gas needs for alinosi 50 years through an extensive network of
underground pipelines.
Phase VIII Expansion Project its scope and purpose
The Phase VIII Expansion Project refers to Florida Gas Transmission's
proposal to construct eleven pipeline loops, three new pipeline segments,
add compression at eight existing compressor stations, construct one new
compressor station, three new meter stations, two meter station upgrades, and
associated auxiliary facilities. FGT proposes to construct 357.3 miles of 24-inch,
36-inch and 42-inch diameter mainline loops, approximately 89.8 miles of 30-
inch new mainline and approximately 36.1 miles of 20-inch and 24-inch
diameter new lateral pipelines. The project also includes the acquisition from
Florida Power & Light of approximately 22.7 miles of an existing 20-inch
lateral connecting FGT's mainline. Compression horsepower additions
totaling 213,600 will be constructed as part of the project. FGT is requesting
authorization from the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration
to operate certain segments of its existing pipeline system in addition to portions
of the proposed pipeline expansion at greater pressures than currently author-
ized. This authorization would eliminate the need to construct an additional
80.5 miles of 36-inch mainline loops. The proposed in service date for the project
is April 1, 2011, with the exception of one new lateral segment in which it has
been requested to be completed by July 1, 2010.
The purpose of the Phase VIII Expansion Project is to deliver needed
natural gas volumes to six electric generation utilities within the state of Florida.
Planned Construction in your area

horse arena is Extension
Office Director Larry
Halsey
Officials are tickled, as
Commission Chairman
Felix "Skeet" Joyner would
say, that the county now
has three recreational fa-
cilities, instead of just the
one. Their idea for the US
90 site is to turn it into a
multipurpose facility and
install a wood carved sign
to that effect at the en-
trance. The donated sign
will identify the location as
part .of the Jefferson
County Parks and Recre-
ation program, allude to its
horse programs, and in-
clude the adopted name.
Individuals wishing to
submit a proposed name
for the park can do so by
calling the County Coordi-
nator's office at (850) 342-
0287 or writing to the
coordinator's office at 450
W. Walnut Street, Monti-
cello, FL 32344. The dead-
line for submitting names
is noon Wednesday, Nov. 19.
The Florida Legisla-
ture awarded Jefferson
County $200,000 in 2006 for
construction of a livestock
and horse arena on the 20-
acre parcel just southeast
of the Green Industries In-

Ambulance


now, thus shortening re-
sponse times and saving
lives, but the unit also will
serve as the first step in
what will eventually con-
stitute a full fledged Fire
Rescue operation at the
site. .. ... .
As part of the move,
the County Commission on
Thursday approved $2,000
in capital improvement ex-
penditures for the Lloyd
station, with the money to
come from the fire protec-


stitute site. That plan called
for construction of an
open-air arena, along with
bleachers, a half-mile of
riding and walking trails,
picnic tables, and restroom
facilities, among other
amenities.
Officials have infor-
mally called the site the
horse arena for years.
Since 2006, however, Jeffer-
son County has acquired
the adjacent 62-acre parcel
that holds the Green Indus-
tries Institute, bringing the
county's total holdings at
the site to 82 acres. Conse-
quently, officials have
changed their views of the
site's use. Although still
committed to seeing horses
and livestock activities con-
stitute a major part of the
facility's use, they now en-
vision other recreational
uses also taking place
there: Hence, their reason-
ing for a new name.
The county is under the
gun to complete construc-
tion of the arena by the
April 2009 or risk losing the
$200,000 in state funding.
To that purpose, commis-
sioners have instructed
Road Department Superin-
tendent David Harvey to
proceed with all haste on


tion impact fees fund. The
improvements include the
closing of an area of the
station and installation of
bunks for the overnight
stay of the volunteer per-
sonnel during weekends,
.thus increasing the sta-
tion's service level.
Commissioners also
authorized Billberry to so-
licit proposals for the pos-
sible purchase of new Jaws
of Life, a set of tools known
as cutters, spreaders and


the preparatory work for
the arena's construction.
As for the other two
recreational facilities, the
final phase of the Mamie
Scott Drive park upgrade
calls for the installation of
new playground equip-
ment, which project is
about to begin, along with
the sprucing up of the fa-

promise that the park will

In recent years, the
county has upgraded the
ball fields, tennis courts
and parking areas, among
other parts of the Mamie
Scott Drive Park, as part of
a multiphase improvement
project funded by grants
from the Department of
Environmental Protection.
Meanwhile, the county
purchased a 10-acre parcel
at the head of the Wacissa
River effective Oct. 28.
County officials envision
developing this parcel into
a premier outdoors facility
one day. For the present,
however, the purchase
means that that the county
is now formally responsi-
ble for patrolling and keep-
ing the area clean of litter
and trash.

Billberry explained
that the department cur-
rently has two sets of the

are very old and largely ob-
solete, given the stronger
metals that make up
today's vehicles.


Tuesday night, Nov. 3, when
Vogelgesang proposed for-
mer Mayor Julie Conley as
his choice to replace Austin:
Per the charter rules,
according to City Attorney
Bruce Leinback, the mayor:
or acting mayor recom-
mends the person for ap-
pointment, but can't vote on
the nomination, and the
council approves or denies;
the recommendation.
Interestingly, it wastr
Conley who appointed Vo ,
gelgesang to the City Coun-
cil several years ago as thel'
replacement for then Coun-
cilman Eugene Hall, 'who
was elected to the County ,.
Commission. Vogelgesang
has since won the council
seat on his own, and Conley
resigned last year to seek
the District 10 House seat
that Leonard Bembry won.
Vogelgesang prefaced
the announcement of Con-
ley's name by lauding her
past council experience,
proven track record, legisla-
tive lobbying 'ability and
willingness to serve.
"I recommend Julie
Conley to fill the seat," he
said finally.
Jones broke the brief si-
lence that followed Vogelge-
sang's announcement to ask
how many individuals had
applied for the job. Four in-
dividuals had applied for
the position, Vogelgesang
responded.
Then Vogelgesang
should submit all four
names to the council simul-
taneously and let the coun-
cil decide who should be the
appointee, Jones said. It
made absolutely no sense to
submit one name at a time,
over a period of months
until a replacement could
be selected, he said.
"It's ludicrous to put


one name out when you
have four," Jones said.
He referenced language
in the city charter that
specifically stated that the
mayor could submit "a
name or names" to the
council for consideration.
Leinback, however, took ex-
ception to the interpreta-
tion. It was true that early
in the specified charter pro-
vision it mentioned
i"names"An the plural, Lein-
,back said. But elsewhere
throughout the particular
*passage, the Word appeared
in its singular form, which
led him to the conclusion
that the mayor could submit
only one name at a time.
"This procedure is not a
marvel of clarity," Leinback
conceded.
Even so, he held that
cumbersome as the proce-
dure might prove, it needed
to be followed. Meaning that
the mayor or acting mayor
would have to submit one
name, and if the council re-
jected it, then the mayor
submitted a different name
the next month and so on
until the individual was fi-
nally selected, however long
the process might take.
"You make your recom-
mendation and the council
votes on it," Leinback reit-
erated. "If not approved,
you submit the next name
on the list. It's an unwieldy
procedure, I admit."
SJones has a tendency to
speak loudly and sound im-
perious in his pronounce-
ments at times. He
interrupted Leinback sev-


his campaign and raised the
issue several times when he
first returned to the coun-
cil, as did his predecessor,
former Councilman Brian
Hayes. But for whatever rea-
son, these discussions have
never moved beyond their
brief mentioning toward
the conclusion of meetings.
Suffice it to say that
Jones is now adamant that
the revision of the charter
be addressed and addressed
soon, so that any proposed
changes can be brought be-
fore voters at the next elec-
tion. That's because voters
must approve any charter
change.
"This should have been
fixed when it was codified,"
Jones said, pointing out al-
leged errors in the docu-
ment. "We need to correct
this so people can vote on it
in 2010."
Indeed, the needed
changes to the charter go
beyond the mere confusion
over whether a single or
multiple names must be
submitted for appointment
to the council. It also has to
do with conflicting, obsolete
and confusing information
in the document.
As for Vogelgesang's
choice of Conley, to fill
Austin's seat, the council
voted 3-0 to reject the rec-
ommendation. Jones made
it clear also how he stood on
matter when it came to fu-
ture recommendations for
the seat.
Speaking for himself
only, Jones said, "Any name
that comes before us and


eral times to argue that the a that asson- the .ouncibfbe-;
charter was obviously,; fore or who raxfori''t-V f-
"broke down". and- needed, fice, andodidn't ,in,, &l
"to be tweaked". vote against them. And if it
Jones, in fact, champi- takes until next year to do it
oned the revision and up- (select a person), then that's
date of the charter during what it will take."

Dividends Still Worth Pursuing
if Tax Laws Change

Provided by Robert J. Davison
Tax laws change all the time and these changes can have
a big impact on your investments. But if you have some inkling
of these changes in advance, you may be able to make deci-
sions that can help you stay on track toward achieving your fi-
nancial goals. Such is the case with dividend-paying stocks.
Until a few years ago, dividends were taxed at your personal in-
come tax rate. But changes in tax laws resulted in a 15 percent
tax rate on dividends for most people. This rate was set to ex-
pire in 2008, but it has been extended until the end of 2010.
At that point, dividends will'again be taxed at your individual
tax rate, which currently could be as high as 35%.
Of course, things can change. As an alternative to taxing div-
idends at an individual's income tax rate, lawmakers could de-
cide to impose a higher fixed rate than the current 15 percent.
At this point and maybe at any point no one can pre-
dict these things. Nonetheless, as you prepare your investment
strategy, you may want to factor in the possibility that, in the
near future, dividends will be taxed at a higher rate than they
are now. If this happens, should you still consider adding div-
idend-paying stocks to your portfolio?
To answer that question, you'll want to assess the benefits that
dividend-paying stocks may offer, regardless of how they are
taxed. Here are a few of them:
* Potential for rising income Some stocks have paid and
increased dividends for many years. So, if you're looking
for a possible source of rising income that can help you com-
bat the effects of inflation, you might want to consider these
types of stocks. (Keep in mind, though, that companies may
decrease or discontinue dividends at any time without notice.)
* Stability during market turmoil As you are no doubt aware,
the stock market has gone through some difficult times for
much of 2008. Generally speaking, though, dividend-paying
stocks are less volatile than those stocks that don't pay divi-
dends. Furthermore, historically in down markets, dividend-
paying stocks tend to outperform non-dividend-paying stocks,
although past performance is not an indication of future re-
sults,
* Ownership of quality companies Dividend-paying stocks
usually represent well-run businesses that seek to reward their
investors. In fact, these are the companies that actually have
money to pay the dividends. And despite the many "fads" you
can find in the investment world, investing in quality compa-
nies never goes out of style.
* Ability to increase ownership shares If you consistently
reinvest your dividends, you'll boost the number of shares you
own. This can be particularly beneficial when the market re-
covers and stock prices rise.
If you invest in dividend-paying stocks, it would be advanta-
geous if the tax rate were to stay at its current 15 percent level.
But even if the tax rate were to rise, you've got plenty of good
reasons to consider adding these types of stocks to your port-
folio so give them some serious consideration.

Geore Joseph Guest Col mi,





Camellia. Circle N eet At e .Arts


The Camellia Garden
Circle held its October meet-
ing at The Jefferson Arts,
with Larry Halsey, Jefferson
County Extension Director,
as guest speaker for the af-
ternoon gathering.
In an informal, seminar-
like setting, members heard
a report from Halsey about
the history of the Master
Gardener Program in this
county, and information that
the program might be start-
ing up again in the very near
future, if the interest is
there.
Presently, residents who
want to be trained in the pro-
gram must go to Tallahassee.
Halsey also told the
group that he is in the
process of writing and
preparing a booklet for Jef-
ferson County residents, and
newcomers, that will contain
growing information such as
freeze dates for crops, aver-
age weather conditions, and.
other pertinent information.

"We are having an influx
of new residents and when
three or four of them asked
the same questions it became
apparent that we needed a
booklet to present that infor-
mation," he said.
The publication will be
helpful for both commercial
and hobby growers.
After 34 years in the
field, Halsey will be able to
include valuable information
he has learned in his service
that will help gardeners and
growers of all kinds avoid
costly mistakes.
He mentioned that the
County Extension Office also
has available printouts and
literature to help residents
learn more about Florida
gardening and agriculture.
His upcoming booklet
will feature Jefferson County
information exclusively.
After his presentation,
members shared a creative
White Chili made by mem-
ber Jane Davis which con-


trained chicken and white
beans, as well as a blueberry
cobbler dessert made by Is-
abelle de Sercey, and other
treats from the members in
attendance. Members
also viewed the current
gallery art display created by
. the New Life of Monticello
residents.
In related matters, De
Sercey and Georgie Joseph
went to the home of Linda Van
Beck on Monday Oct. 20, to bag
daffodil bulbs for sale to various
Garden Clubs and other groups.
Van Beck was recently the
featured speaker at the Monti-
cello Garden Club Fall Meet-
ing.
She noted that Monticello
is a very good growing area for
daffodils.
de Sercey and Joseph have
planted the daffodils they
brought home and will report
to the Camellia Garden Circle
members on their success in
growing them. Daffodils will
bloom in February or March.

Week 4


Monticello News
Staff Writer
It was a game befitting
two of the NFL's storied
franchises, hard-hitting,
fiercely fought, thrilling
and played before an emo-
tional, highly emotional
crowd, a playoff-type game
at the end of October.
The Giants improved


to 6-1 entering next week's
NFC East showdown with
the Dallas Cowboys. Al-
though they had a common
point total, they reached it
via unconventional means,
John Carney field goals of
26, 35. 25 and 24 yards, a
safety on an errant snap by
a backup snapper and
Boss' touchdown.
And best of all, it had a

happy ending for the Gi-
ants. Eli Manning's two-
yard touchdown pass to
Kevin Boss with 3:07 re-
maining enabled the Gi-
ants to take advantage of
another splendid perform-
ance by the defense and de-
feat the Pittsburgh Steelers
in Heinz Field, 21-14.
"I hope that my coach-
ing along the sidelines was
a positive contributing fac-
tor in the game," said Cor-
nerback Sam Madison.
"The Giants had a great
game and I hope they keep
the winning drive that will
once again bring us to the
Super Bowl."
The Steelers, who fell
to 5-2, scored on Mewelde
Moore's 32-yard run in the
first quarter and Ben
Roethlisberger's 65-yard
pass to Nate Washington in
the third.
Pittsburgh entered the
game with the NFL's num-
ber one defense and a
league-high 25 sacks. But
the Giants had no
turnovers and allowed no
sacks. The Giants' defense,
meanwhile, intercepted
four.

sacked him five times,
three by Mathias Ki-
wanuka, and one each by
Tuck and Dave Tollefson.
Roethlisberger completed
only 13 of 29 passes for 189
yards. But he wasn't the
only Steeler who was ha-
rassed by the defense all
day. Pittsburgh gained only
249 yards, totaled 12 first
downs and owned the ball
for only 25:36. Take away
Moore's touchdown and he
rushed for 52 yards on 18
carries, a 2.9-yard average.
The defense needed to
stand tall, because Pitts-
burgh's D was at its best
when the Giants got close
to the goal line. Six Giants
trips inside the 20-yard line
resulted in the four field
goals and one touchdown -
the game-winner to Boss.
Manning completed 19
of 32 passes for 199 yards
on a day when the Giants
rushed for only 83 yards on
35 carries, a 2.4-yard aver-
age. His favorite receiver
was running back Derrick
Ward, who caught five
passes for 43 yards. Boss
added four receptions for
34 yards.
The Giants earned the
victory with a dominating
fourth quarter in which
' they outscored the Steel-
ers, 12-0. The Giants
entered the final quarter
trailing. 14-9. following a
third quarter that Coach
Tom Coughlin admitted
"did not look real good."
On the third play of the
fourth, Corey Webster in-
tercepted a Roethlisberger
pass intended for Hines
Ward and returned it to the
Giants' 32-yard line. Four
minutes later, they faced a
fourth-and-one at the Steel-
ers' 29-yard line and used
their first timeout. When
Manning returned to the
field, he didn't like what he
saw from Pittsburgh's de-
fense and tried to call an-
other timeout, which is
illegal. So he took a five-
yard delay-of-game penalty
to make it fourth-and-six.
For the Giants, that
was just a slight bump in
the road. Manning stepped
back and threw down the
right side for 30 yards to
Toomer. who made the
catch to give the Giants a
first down at the four.
There was still the mat-


ter of scoring the touch-
down. which the Giants
were unable to do. Derrick
Ward lost two yards on a
first-down run. Incomplete
passes intended for Plaxico
Burress, on a fade pattern,
and Boss followed. Cough-
lin then elected to have
Carney close the gap to two
points, at 14-12.
The defense forced
Pittsburgh into a three-
and-out and the Steelers
had to punt from their 18-
yard line. Linebacker
James Harrison, pressed
into punt-snapping duties
because of a knee injury
suffered by Greg Warren,
sailed the ball over the
head of Mitch Berger and
out of the end zone. It was
the second week in a row
the Giants scored on a
safety More importantly, it
tied the score at 14-14 with
6:48 remaining.
The Giants were well
aware that the inexperi-
enced Harrison was forced
to snap.
"That's why we
brought the pressure,"
Coach Tom Coughlin said.
"When the second snapper
came in at that vital time
in the game with the score
14-12. we went with the
rush. I don't know that it
disturbed him, but the
snap was high. Tough situ-
ation for that guy to be in."
After the free kick, the
Giants took possession at
their own 47-yard line. On
third-and-seven, Manning
fired a 25-yard pass down
the middle to Steve Smith.
giving the Giants a first
down on the Pittsburgh 25.
Runs by Brandon Jacobs
and Ward and a pass to
Burress left the Giants
with a second-and-goal at
the two. Manning then
faked a handoff and threw
to Boss. who stood by him-
self in the end zone.
The Steelers had taken
a 14-9 lead on Rothlis-
berger's long touchdown
pass to Washington with 10
minutes remaining in the
third quarter.
The Giants led. 9-7, at
the end of a first half in
which they owned the ball
for almost two-thirds of the
time, 19:08.
Carney's third field
goal of the half, a 25-
yarder, gave the Giants

their first lead at 9-7 with
3:31 remaining in the sec-
ond quarter.
The Giants got the ball
on rookie linebacker
Bryan Kehl's first career
interception, with an as-
sist from Butler. who hit
Washington as Roethlis,
berger's pass arrived,
causing it to carom to
Kehl. After a 17-yard re-
turn and a 15-yard penalty
on Gary Russell for a
horse collar tackle, the Gi-
ants took possession at the
Steelers' 29-yard line. A
nine-yard pass to Ward
gave the Giants a first
down at the 15.
Carney's 35-yard field
goal had pulled the Giants
to within 7-6 with 10:30 re-
maining in the second
quarter. Domenik Hixon's
28-yard punt return gave
the Giants great field posi-
tion at the Pittsburgh 19-
yard line. But three plays
gained only two yards and
Carney came on to kick
the field goal.
The Giants had a
chance to take the lead on
their next possession,
when they got a first down
at the Steelers' two-yard
line. An offside penalty
moved them a yard closer.
On third down, Jacobs
powered his way up the
middle and the officials
signaled touchdown. But
Pittsburgh coach Mike
Tomlin challenged the
ruling, which was over-
turned after review by ref-
eree Bill Carollo. Jacobs
tried again on fourth
down, but was stopped
short. This time Coughlin
threw the red challenge
flag. But after review, Car-
ollo upheld the call on the
field and the Giants came
away with no points.
The Steelers had
taken a 7-0 lead on their
fourth offensive play,
when Moore took a hand-
off from Roethlisberger,
cut right and scampered
32 yards for a touchdown.
The score capped a 60-
yard drive that included'
Roethlisberger's 22-yard
pass to tight end Heath
Miller.
Moore's score was for-
gotten after the late hero-
ics the Giants used to pull
out a memorable victory.

Impact Fees

process for implementing im-
pact fees was very complex and
complicated and entailed the
undertaking of an expensive
study to determine the feasibil-
ity and the exact amount of
each fee.
"We had to hire a profes-
sional consultant firm to do the
study, which cost $15,000, and
we held two public hearings,"
Joyner said. "Once the fire im-
pact fee was implemented and it
worked well, we then consid-
ered the EMS (Emergency Med-
ical Service), law enforcement
and transportation impact
fees."
He explained that impact
fee monies could only be used
on capital improvement proj-
ects, and in the case of the
transportation impact fee, the
money had to be spent within
eight years and the county had
to be divided into three dis-
tricts, with the use of the fund-
ing limited to the particular
district where it was raised.
But given the cost of resur-
facing roads, which was
presently $1 million per mile,
there was no way that small
counties such as Jefferson
could accomplish this task ab-
sent monies that the trans-
portation impact fee raised,
Joyner said. Even so, the money
would only serve as leverage to
bring in more state funding, he
said.
Responding to another of
Michael's questions, Commis-
sioner J. N. "Junior" explained
the difference between special
assessments, such as the fire
and landfill taxes, and impact
fees. Tuten explained that the
first was annual and used for
operational expenses, whereas
the second was a one-time
charge used strictly for capital
improvements.
As a businessman, Tuten
said he understood why impact
fees were perceived to be oner-
ous and burdensome. But the
fact was that they were neces-
sary and that he would vote for
the measures anew if they
came before the board again, he
said.
"Have no doubt about it,
gentlemen, growth will return,"
Tuten said. '"And when the
growth comes, the newcomers
will use law enforcement, fire,
ambulance and roads, and all
these services will be free with-
out the impact fees. If they
(newcomers) don't pay impact
fees, the present residents will
end up paying for the growth
through property taxes. We un-
derstand that the national econ-
omy is in the pits, but I still have
a strong belief in impact fees.
It's only fair to the present tax-
payers that they get their mill-

age rate lowered and that the
newcomers pay for the growth."
Joyner affirmed the point..
"If we don't plan for 10
years from now, how will we
provide for the infrastructure
when-thattime comes," Joyner
said. '*'We couldn't predict the
downturn in the ec myi en
we implemented the-mpact
fees. My own business is 40 per-
cent off this year from last year.
But the economy will turn
around and growth will get
back on track here. This is just
a time that we have to suffer
through. It's just unfortunate
that the fees were implemented
when the economy took a down-
turn."
Michael conceded that the
commissioners made a good ar-
gument, but his reason for com-
ing to the meeting wasn't to
argue the point, he said.
"We don't question your in-
tegrity," Michael said. "But
there is another side to this. So,
with great control, I won't re-
spond to your comments.
You're doing a great sales job,
however. We look forward to
presenting a different point of
view later. But right now, we're
just trying to understand the.
facts."
With that, he continued his
line of questioning: Did city
residents pay the impact fees?
Were any of the monies raised
by the impact fees used inside
the city? What was the level of
service of the county roads?
How did the impact fees relate
to the proportionate fair share
that developers had to pay for
the upgrade of roads?
Officials responded pa-
tiently and at length to
Michael's questions, which the
latter consistently character-
ized as a fact-finding exercise.
But in conclusion, Michael
tipped his hand a little, noting
that surrounding counties
were taking action to address
the current economic reality
He specifically cited Wakulla
County, which recently adopted
a moratorium on impact fees.
Joyner countered that
Wakulla County was also
presently facing litigation for
its decision. There was also the
question of fairness, Joyner
said.
"I don't know that it's fair
to charge one month and then
not charge the next month," he
said.
Michael let it be known
that the discussion was far
from over.
"There a couple of fairness
questions that will be raised in
the next few weeks", he said.
"I'll hope you'll be open minded
and consider what may be right
for now when we return."

LaKayshia Jackson, di-
rector of Little Angels in
Training Childcare Devel-
opment Center (LAIT,) lo-
cated at 1555 West
Washington Street, relates
that it's important to teach
and to mold children at an
earlV age, and that's why it
is called "early education."
Preschool is the foun-
dation for all youth ages
one to four. because it' the
student doesn't get it in pre-
school. it will be difficult
for them when they are
confronted with kinder
garten.
Learning tools of all
kinds are used to see just
what the children know. Be-
fore laying most founda-
tions we sometimes have to
dig footers to help support
the foundation itself and in
thi. case th!e teachers have
a9p


to dig deep into a child's
imaginary' world to bring
out the best in them.
A concrete foundation
is solid and hard, and at
this level we test each child
to see whether they've ac-
complished the standards
that we have set out for
them and if they pass the


test, then we know that
they are ready to stand on
their on in the kinder-
garten world.
There must be a profes-
sional, trained, and quali-
fied staff that cares and
will carry out the mission
and see to it that it is ac-
complished.

especially my little girl.


She was and still is my
