After more than a
year of back-and-forth,

who is thinking of mov-
ing his two California-
based companies here,
Economic Development
Director Julie Conley fi-
nally got to meet 'the
heretofore virtual Gra-

on Wednesday, Nov. 19.
The meeting took
place in Gainesville, FL,
and included County Co-

Dennis Dingman, of
Summit Professional
Services, who is helping
the county in its search
for grant funding to ac-
complish the industrial
park's infrastructure up-
grade a key element
in bringing Tweed's
companies here.
Gainesville was cho-
sen as a convenient mid-
point between
Monticello and Tampa
airport, where Tweed's
commercial airline
flight brought him from
California.
Conley character-
ized the meeting as posi-
tive and encouraging.
"He's committed to
coming here," Conley
told the News on Thurs-
day morning, Nov. 20.
"He's ready to come
sooner rather than

Conley said the
main purpose of the
get-together aside
from finally getting to
meet Tweed face-to-face
- was to iron out some

which requires certain

at this point, but py-

has signaled his willing-

All he asked of com-
missioners was that the
county assumed the lia-
bility for the one-day
event, as it had always
done in the past, Bullock
said. He imagined that
the cost for the one-day
insurance coverage
would be between $750
and $1,000, he said.
Commissioner J. N.
"Junior" Tuten, who
gladly moved to grant
Bullock's request, said it
was the least that the
county could do, given
the great pleasure that
the event brought to res-
idents.
"I support the event
with pride," said Tuten,
whose motion for the


county to assume the li-
ability the board unani-
mously approved.
But what of these
national and interna-
tional happenings that
might prevent the local
ceremony from taking
place? Was Bullock
being serious or his typ-
ically humorous self?
No, he was serious,
Bullock said. He ex-

Senior Staff Writer
The .approval of
Amendment 4 by
Florida voters in the
Nov. 4 elections is creat-
ing consternation
among Jefferson County
officials, to the degree
that they hope to con-
vince state lawmakers
to exempt this and other
small counties from cer-
tain of the new law's
provisions.
Local officials have
set a meeting for 9 a.m.
Wednesday, Dec. 3, at the
Chamber of Commerce
building on West Wash-
ington Street to discuss
the impact of Amend-
ment 4 on this and other
of Florida's small coun-
ties. Local officials are
looking for the atten-
dance of several of the
., region's lawmakers,
whom they hope to con-
vince to sponsor legisla-
tion that will hold small
counties harmless from
the amendment's "unin-
tended consequences".

A city man, Darryl
Javon Hayes, 21, was sen-
tenced in court on drug
charges to one year and
one day to be served in the
Department of
Corrections and was
transported Oct. 30 to
begin serving his time in
DOC.
The charges stem
from an incident on May
14, 2008, when deputies
were conducting drug
investigations near the
area of the Blue Heron
Cafe, located at 960 First
Street.
While in the area,
deputies observed several
subjects standing near a
white Ford Ranger, and
approached them. One of
the'subjects, was Hayes.
Haves leaned into the
truck and placed a bag
inside. Upon making con-
tact with Hayes, deputies


Darryl Javon Hayes


noticed that he appeared
nervous. Hayes was
asked if he had any drugs
on his person and he
allegedly stated, "I got a
bag of weed, that's it, I was
just gonna smoke it. Hayes
retrieved a yellow Ziploc
bag of marijuana from his
pocket and handed it to
deputies, who asked Hayes


if that was all he had and
he stated, "yes".
Deputies suspected
that Hayes had more drugs
due to his nervous
demeanor. Deputies then
spoke ,with Arda Young
who was also standing
next to the truck, and
Young advised that the
vehicle belonged to him
and he was asked if Hayes
had put anything into his
vehicle and he stated,
"yes" and pointed to a plas-
tic bag in the passenger
seat.
The bag was retrieved
and inside it contained 16
baggies of marijuana. The
marijuana baggies were
packaged for individual
sale and weighed about 24
grams.
Hayes was arrested
and charged with posses-
sion of a controlled sub-
stance., more,- than 20
grams, with intent to sell
within 1000 feet 'f, a place
of worship.

time, disruptions in the
market and the fireworks
production in China were
also making it more diffi-
cult acquire the necessary
ingredients, he said.
The fireworks display
is an annual event that Bul-
lock has been providing for
the community going on 21
years. Last year, in fact,.
would have been the 20th
year of the event, except
that Bullock cancelled it.
The reason he cancelled it
was because of his frustra-
tion over the previous
year's fiasco, which re-
sulted in a $5,000 or so loss
to his organization.
Traditionally funded
by community contribu-
tions, the fundraising ef-
fort has depended on
volunteers for its success
each year. For a long time,
a core of volunteers that
included then City Super-
intendent Don Anderson,
Buddy Johnson and a few
others assured that an ade-
quate amount was raised


Companies

number of jobs created.
Thus, the greater the num-
ber of jobs that a business
brings, the greater the
chance of the county
being awarded the fund-
ing and the greater the
amount of that funding.
Conley said Tweed in-
dicqted that his operation
would create at least six
jobs initially Likely, that
number would go up over
time, Conley said. But be-
cause the number of jobs
promised on the applica-
tion definitely had to be
met, Tweed chose to go
With the more coflserva-
tive figure, she said.
Conley planned to
mail the purchase con-
tract to Tweed in Califor-
nia on Friday It was her
expectation, based on
Tuesday's meeting, that
Tweed would return the
signed contract almost im-
mediately.
"Once he's done that,
he's committed to the pur-
chase," Conley said.
She said it then only
remained for the county to
secure the state/federal
funding and accomplish
the infrastructure up-
grade, which entails ex-
tensions of the sewer and
water lines and the road-
way at the industrial park
to accommodate Tweed's
two businesses.


each time. But even then,
the fundraisings were
many times touch-and-go
affairs at best, with the ef-
forts often plagued by per-
.sonality conflicts and other
problems.
In the end, the core
fundraising group dis-
banded and others came
forward to take up the, ef-
fort, but it was never quite
as organized or successful
as the original group. As
Bullock explained it last
year when he decided to
call off the display, the
event had consistently
been losing a little more
money each succeeding
year. But the previous
year's loss had been partic-
ularly devastating. He sim-
ply could no longer
continue to absorb the
losses, he said.
"It's a question of poor
accountability of the fund-
ing," was all that Bullock
would say at the time about
the cause of the problem.
As it was, he pointed


"I feel confidant that
the grant funding is there
and that we will meet the
criteria," Conley said.
Tweed reportedly
wants to buy four acres at
the industrial park and
plans to construct a 4,000
sq. foot building there ini-
tially
"If everything goes ac-
cording to my optimistic
plan, Mr. Tweed could
start building on the site
by early next year," Con-
ley said.
She said one of the
questions posed to Tweed
at the meeting was what
effect the slumping econ-
omy might have on his
two enterprises, one a dis-
tributor of select teas
worldwide and the second
a distributor of high-end
pet food products with
markets in Europe and the
Middle East.
Conley said Tweed's
response was essentially
that people tended to
drink more tea when they
were out of work. As for
the high-end pet foods,
people who purchased
these products typically
weren't as subject to eco-
nomic downturns, she re-
ported him saying. "
Conley described
Tweed as an interesting
character, with his British
accent, athletic built (he

out, it cost between $10,000
and $12,000 to put on the
'display each year, not
counting the volunteers'
time and efforts. At that, it
took three to four days of
work to put up and take
down the preparations for
the 30-minute shows, he
said.
Bullock was careful not
to close the door entirely
on the idea, of doing the
fireworks display again,
even as he was informing
the County Commission
last year that he would not
do it for that year. If he did
do it again, however, he
wanted to control every as-
pect of the program, from
the selection of the
fundraising committee to
the presentation of the
fireworks, he said. That
way, if losses resulted, they
would be his losses, he
said.
"Volunteerism is not
doing it," Bullock said at
the time. "This is not an
open rodeo."

and international savoir-
faire. Indeed, the British
Tea Company is a family-
owned business that is cel-
ebrating its 111th year, and
both it and the Active Pet
Feeds Company are sub-
sidiaries of the Worldwide
Series Group, which re-
portedly has annual rev-
enues of $11 million.
Conley said Tweed re-
lated that the company
has tea gardens around
the world, where are
grown its traditional and
its gourmet teas.
"He says teas har-
vested on mountaintops
are the best," Conley
shared. "Teas are rated,
like wines. The typical
teas that most of us drink
have a 40 percent rating or
so. But his company does-
n't sell any teas below a 94
percent rating."
"It seems like the per-
fect cottage industries for
here," Conley said of the
two companies. "They do
not have much of a foot-
print and produce quality
products."
As for Tweed, his rea-
sons for wanting to relo-
cate the companies here
may have to do with the
fact that his in-laws hap-
pen to reside in Jefferson

added as a consequence
of the amendment Jef-
ferson County and the
school district stand to
lose upwards of $400,000
in annual revenues, local
officials say. And $400,000
is not an amount that a
financially strapped Jef-
ferson County can afford
to lose, they add.
Commonly known as
the Conservation
Amendment and ap-
proved by 68.4 percent of
Florida voters (which
translates into 4,603,079
out of the total 6,731,258
ballots cast on the issue),
Amendment 4 essentially
exempts from property
taxes those lands that are
put into permanent con-
servation easement.
Meaning that these lands
can never be developed.
The amendment like-
wise allows land that
isn't in permanent con-
servation easement, but
that is being used for
conservation purposes,
to be taxed according to
its conservation use.
Sponsored by the
Florida Taxation and
Budget Reform Commis-
sion, the measure en-
joyed wide support,
including that of Gov.


Charlie Crist, the Nature
Conservancy, the Florida
Wildlife Federation, the
Audubon of Florida, and
the Florida Chamber of
Commerce, among oth-
ers. The new law goes
into effect beginning in
2010.
Proponents argued
that the measure would
provide a strong incen-
tive for private landown-
ers to engage in
conservation and it
would help preserve the
Everglades and iconic
species such as the
Florida panther.
Opponents, for their
part, argued that the
amendment failed to link
land-use planning to con-
servation and that it
would discourage eco-
nomic expansion and
further restrict the abil-
ity of local governments
to generate revenues.
* It is the latter argu-
ment that resonates
most strongly here.
Local officials say the
consequences of the
amendment will be eco-
nomically devastating
here, given that the
county already has
40,000 acres in conserva-
tion easement, making


it one of the highest in
terms of conservation
land in the state.
At the same time,
they recognize that the
measure enjoys wide-
spread popular support
and that it negatively
impacts only a few small
counties, which tremen-
dously limits the politi-
cal pressure that they
can bring to bear on the
issue.
"This is not even a
blip on the radar of
most counties," ob-
served Commissioner
Hines Boyd on Thursday
night.
All that county offi-
cials could do, he said,
was at best to appeal to
the lawmakers' sense of
fairness. At that, the
hope lay in the fact that
although approved by
voters, the implementa-
tion language had yet to
be written. The hope,
Boyd said, was to pre-
vail on lawmakers to
add a provision in the
implementation lan-
guage that would either
hold small counties
harmless or have the
state reimburse them
for the tax losses caused
by Amendment 4.


ferson County only, she
added.
"The last three years
have been hard on everyone,
including the County Christ-
mas Drive," said Roann. "We
are at our lowest ever with
funds for toys, certificates
and clothes. We need every-
one to dig in and help as
much as possible with dona-
tions of toys, money, clothes,
and many other items.
"We have many, children
to assist, as always, but this
year with a whole lot less
funds. I guess it may be due
to the present day economy,
but many more are request-
ing help this year and they
began asking for it much ear-
lier than usual," said Roann.
In 2006, the County
Christmas Drive helped 100
families. "We were only able
to give 55 families $25 gift cer-
tificates and the volunteers
helped 229 children with
clothes, including jackets,
shoes, socks, underwear,
pants and tops, watches,
small radios, toys and bicy-


cles.
"Several other families
were adopted by groups and
they provided many wonder-
ful gifts for the entire family,"
said Roann. "This is a great
way to celebrate Christmas,
by sponsoring a family. Peo-
ple have told me of the joy
they get buying gifts for the
children after we supply
them with the age, size and
gender of a child, and their
children also get in on the
giving at this time of year.
"We would love to have
more people corisider adopt-
ing families," Roann added.
"It makes it better for chil-
dren and easier on the Christ-
mas Drive workers."
Roann said the organiza-
tion hopes to have collection
boxes in all businesses in
Monticello for toy drop offs.
Only new toys will be ac-
cepted. "I know for sure that
Farmers and Merchants
Bank will have a box and we
hope other businesses will
also," she added. "Again, re-
member, if your donation for


Christmas is not to the
County Christmas Drive,
your donation will go to other
communities. We receive
very little, if any, assistance
from outside of Jefferson
County, and we receive no
help from Toys For Tots. God
gave us the most wonderful
gift this time of year and we
need to show our love for
each other and help families
that need our help."
Donations can be mailed
to 1456 S. Jefferson St., Mon-
ticello, FL 32344, or dropped
off at Jefferson Elementary
School. "No donation is too
small and every little bit adds
up," said Roann.
Helpers are needed for
shopping and wrapping gifts.
Those wishing to volunteer
or requiring further informa-
tion can contact Lucille
Hunter at 342-0180 between 8
a.m. and 4 p.m., or contact

Monticello News
Staff Writer
With the recent drop in
nightly temperatures,
many residents pulled out
their space heaters and
kerosene heaters, and the
Florida' Poison Control
Center advises that resi-
dents need to use caution
with such devices.
Poison Control experts
explain that Carbon
Monoxide (CO) is a color-
less, odorless, tasteless gas
that can be generated by
the incomplete burning or
combustion of any product
containing carbon. It can
be generated from the in-
complete burning of
propane, gasoline, oil,
kerosene, charcoal, wood,
or coal.
We can be exposed to
low levels of CO when we
drive in heavy traffic. Cig-
arette smoking can also ex-
pose a person to low levels
of CO.
High levels of CO can
come from faulty gas
heaters, blocked chimneys,
faulty gas appliances, and
house fires. Exposure can
also occur when people
ride in the covered back
bed of a truck with the
back window open, as the
CO comes up from the ex-
haust and into the bed of
the truck.
Operating propane or
gasoline powered engines
or tools in a closed space
can expose a one to CO.
Some paint strippers con-
tain methylene chloride,
which converts to CO in the
body These products
should not be used in a
closed garage or confined
space.
Carbon monoxide in-
terferes with the way the


body delivers oxygen to tis-
sues and organs. It de-
creases the amount of
oxygen that hemoglobin in
the red blood cell can carry
CO may also cause free rad-
ical damage in the brain
and nervous system. The
heart is particularly af-
fected by this toxin.
The most common com-
plaint after a CO exposure
is a headache. Other com-
plaints can be nausea,
drowsiness, chest tight-
ness, or confusion. CO is
more dangerous to chil-
dren, and pets, than
adults. This is also true for
pregnant women. Precau-
tion to take include:
Have your chimney
cleaned regularly
Install a carbon
monoxide detector in your
home.
Do not run your car,
lawn mower, or other inter-
nal combustion engine
in a closed space.
Maintain any portable
heaters and make sure that
they are vented appropri-
ately
Follow instructions on
the operation of gasoline or
propane powered equip-
ment
Do not use methylene
chloride containing paint
stripper in a closed space.
*When using gas
heaters, make sure that you
have fresh air flowing into
the area.
If anyone is having dif-
ficulty breathing or is not
waking up, contact 911 im-
mediately
If there is no immediate
life threat, contact your
local poison center at 1-800-
222-1222.
Try to go out in fresh air,
away from the exposure
source.

promote this heart-warm-
ing community service
project.
This popular cam-
paign delivered approxi-
mately 3,500 gifts to local
needy seniors last year
during the holiday sea-
son.
"Be a Santa to a Sen-
ior each year sets new
records in contributions
of gifts to a group that
often is forgotten during
the hectic holiday season,"
said Scott Harrell, owner
of the Home Instead Sen-
ior Care office serving Jef-
ferson, Leon, Gadsden and
Wakulla counties as well
as the Panhandle.
"While children are
the beneficiaries of many
holiday programs, people
often don't' think about the
isolated and lonely seniors
who need to be remem-
bered as well during this
season. Be a Santa to a
Senior also is designed to
help stimulate human con-
tact and social interaction
for older adults who are
unlikely to have guests
during the holidays."
Here's how the pro-
gram, which runs from
Nov. 7 through Dec. 14,
works: Prior to the holi-
day season, the participat-
ing local non-profit
organizations will identify
needy and isolated seniors
in the community and pro-
vide those names to Home
Instead Senior Care for
this community service
program.
Christmas trees have


been set up in Super Wal-
Mart located at 5500
Thomasville Road and
Sam's Club located at 3122
Dick Wilson Blvd., both in
Tallahassee, and feature
ornaments with the first
'names only of the seniors
and their respective gift
requests.
Holiday shoppers can
pick up an ornament, buy
items on the list.'and re-
turn them unwrapped to
the store, along with the
ornament attached.
Home Instead Senior
Care then enlists the vol-
unteer help of its staff,
senior-care business asso-
ciates, non-profit workers
and others to collect, wrap
and distribute the gifts to
these seniors.
Gifts will be bagged
and delivered as they are
picked up from Super Wal-
Mart and Sam's Club.
Be a Santa to a Sen-
ior is a fulfilling way to
say thanks to those older
adults who have helped
build our community, with
the hope that many will be
touched by this holiday
gesture of goodwill.
Businesses are encour-
aged to contact the local
Home Instead Senior Care
office at 297-1897 about
adopting groups of sen-
iors.

Jan Rickey And Her EN HEVY

Monticello News Photo By Fran Hunt, November 17, 2008
Jan Rickey enjoys tooling around town in her newly acquired 1999 GEM NEV electric
vehicle. She says it is comparable in savings as a gasoline-powered vehicle, which gets
150 miles to the gallon.


FRAN HUNT
Monticello News
Staff Writer
No, it's not an over-
sized golf cart, and it's not
quite a car. It's a 1999 GEM
(Global Electric Motorcars)
NEV (Neighborhood Elec-
tric Vehicle), and ivionti-
cello resident Jan Rickey
may very well be the first
resident in the city to own
one.
An unusual sight to say
the least, the little GEM
NEV does turn the heads of
the curious, but what
would possess someone to
own one? How much could
owning and operating one
possibly save compared to
the standard automobile?
Does it have any features
found in standard cars?
Here's what Rickey had to
tell:
She purchased the vehi-
cle about three weeks ago
and says it has been turn-
ing heads ever since. "I
have had many people ask
me about it. Was it a car or
some kind of gQlf cart,
they want to know, said
Rickey "They ask about
features, uses, mileage and
speed and many have made
comments that they would
also like to have one," she
said. "Who knows, it may
start a trend here."
She added that this was
not her first electric vehi-
cle; "I had one years ago,
and enjoyed it very much,"
said Rickey "It's a technol-
ogy that has always been of
interest to me."
She said that before she
became the Director of the
Opera House some ten plus
years ago, she operated the
State of Florida Alterna-
tively Fueled Vehicles for
the Governor's Energy Of-
fice, which she suspects
could have greatly sparked


her interest in the technol-
ogy
She explained that
though the technology of
the GEM NEV is pretty
much the same as a golf
cart, there were some
major differences. Rickey
said the GEM NEV is
street-legal with tag, li-
cense and insurance, has
headlights and a large
windshield wiper, and the
vehicles come in two and
four seaters.
Her vehicle has four
seats. There is also a six
seater, also known as the
"stretch". She added that
the GEM NEV has an alu-
minum frame with the
equivalent to roll bars.
Rickey explained that
some models come with
doors and some do not. She
has no doors on her model.
Some electric models have
heat, but hers does not, and
some even have air condi-
tioning.
Presently, she is look-
ing into purchasing doors
for her vehicle to help keep
out the wind and rain as
she travels down the road.
"It's a perfect little ve-
hicle for running around
town," said Rickey "The
constant stop and go in
town for a gasoline vehicle
is very hard on it, and cre-
ates much wear and tear.
These electric models are
perfect for frequent stops
and short distances."
She said that two 12-
volt batteries carried in the
front end of the vehicle op-
erate the headlights and
windshield wiper, and six
12-volt batteries stored in
the rear of the vehicle
power the vehicle. The
maximum speed of the
GEM NEV is 25 miles per
hour.
When asked how much


she saves by using the elec-
tric vehicle, she said to
charge the batteries costs
about 63 cents per night,
which will run 30 miles on
that one charge. "That is
the equivalent to a gasoline
vehicle which gets 150
miles to the gallon," she
stated.
Bearing in mind the
small size of the vehicle,
Rickey was asked if the 18-
wheel rigs running
through town make her5
nervous when they get near
her. "Of course they do,
and I try to stay out of their
way," said Rickey "And
when it comes to turning
and oncoming vehicles, my
philosophy is easy, every-
one else can go first," she
quipped.
Rickey was asked how
she would prepare for the
record-breaking tempera-
tures, such as were seen
Monday morning, Nov. 17,
when the mercury dipped
down to 25 degrees and
broke a record. "I'll bundle
up in my heavy gloves,
thick down coat, drive in
the sun and get to the
Opera House or anywhere
else as fast as I can," said
Rickey "And I'll be going
down the road looking like
the Michelin Man."

The Florida Depart-
ment of Highway Safety
and Motor Vehicles is kick-
ing off a public awareness
campaign called, "Share
the Road", to remind mo-
torists to use courtesy
when driving and to watch
out for pedestrians, bicy-
clists and motorcyclists,
during this busy time of
the year.
"Florida's roadways
are busy with more than 18
million residents and ap-
proximately 88 million vis-
itors each year," said
Electra Theodoratos-Bus-
tle, executive director of
the Department of High-

explore cost-saving and en-
vironmental-conscious
commute options, it is im-
portant that we are aware
and considerate of every-
one on the road. Share the
Road is a basic reminder of
driver courtesy and safety"
At any given time,
Florida hosts millions of
passenger cars and trucks,
thousands of buses hauling
children, and groups of
adult workers and visitors,
thousands of large com-
mercial trucks and trailers
hauling heavy loads of
products; thousands of mo-

"No single motorist or
group of motorists has an
inherent right to use the

individual or groups," said
the Director of the Florida
Highway Patrol Col. John
Czernis. "The laws apply
to everyone on the road, re-
gardless of whether driv-

The Department of

"You Can't Be Without It"



Want to Retire Early? Adjust
Your Investement Strategy

Provided by Robert J. Davison
Do you want to retire early? Many people do but they're
not always financially prepared. If you're thinking of taking
early retirement, start preparing for it as early as you can.
To afford early retirement, you've got to address at least two
key financial concerns. First, by definition, you'll have more
years of retirement to pay for than people who retire later.
And second, by retiring early, you're sacrificing the oppor-
tunity to contribute to your 401(k) or other employer-spon-
sored retirement plan; also, you need earned income to
contribute to an IRA.
How can you overcome these potential barriers to a suc-
cessful early retirement? For starters, you'll .need to put as
much as you can possibly afford into your 401(k) and IRA
each year and a greater percentage of the investments in
these accounts may need to be in growth-oriented vehicles,
such as stocks.
Of course, it's not a good idea to fill your retirement ac-
counts entirely with stocks, given their higher risk and
volatility. You'll also want to add some bonds, certificates of
deposit (CDs) and other fixed-income investments to help
diversify your holdings. (Keep in mind, though, that diver-
sification cannot guarantee a profit or protect against loss.)
Furthermore, if you're going to retire early, you may well
need these fixed-income vehicles to provide you with a
more predictable income stream. Remember, however, that
since your retirement could last 30 years or more, you'll still
need growth-oriented investments to keep you ahead of in-
flation, which, over time, can seriously erode your purchas-
ing power. So, a few years before you retire, you may want
to review your portfolio to make sure you have the proper
balance between "growth" and "income" investments.
To afford early retirement, you may also decide to take So-
cial Security earlier than at your full retirement age. Your
monthly payments will be lower than if you had waited, so,
before you retire, make sure these smaller checks can still
provide for some of your needs.
And speaking of checks, there's no reason that early retire-
ment means you'll never earn another paycheck. If you de-
cide to open a small business, take a part-time job or do
some consulting, you can once again contribute to an IRA
or even open your own retirement plan, such as a SEP-IRA
or SIMPLE IRA. Obviously, the additional income and the
ability to contribute to a retirement plan can make early
retirement more affordable.
One final note: If you're contemplating early retirement,
you may want to consult with a professional financial advi-
sor well before you make your move to make sure you've
saved enough. A financial advisor can also help you decide
upon a reasonable annual rate of withdrawal from your in-
vestments. You don't want to take out so much that you
risk running short in later years, nor do you want to with-
draw so little that you struggle to make ends meet.
Early retirement can be both a challenge and a joy. To re-
duce the challenge and increase the possibility of joy,
though, you'll need to start planning soon as in right
now.

A Thanksgiving Menu, Then Versus Now


By Tyrra B Meserve
A Special From
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A lot has changed over
the years since the first
Thanksgiving meal where
bread was broken in thanks
and everyone gathered cat
fhe table to appease their
hunger and give prayer for
that which was provided.
The meal that -wa .S-
before the pilgrims, hbw-
ever, is not the meal that
most think of today when
the words "Happy Thanks-.
giving" are uttered. Just for
nutritional fun, these are
two basic menus to com-
pare when deciding what to
prepare for that feast with
family and friends. Bon Ap-
petit!
A TYPICAL
THANKSGIVING
DINNER SET BEFORE
DINERS TODAY.:
A golden roasted turkey
Giblet gravy


Mashed potatoes
Sliced ham
Green bean casserole
Cornbread
Cranberry sauce
Sweet potato casserole
Homemade dinner rolls
Corn on the cob
Fruit salad
Pumpkin pie
Pecan pie
Apple pie
WHAT THE
PILGRIMS ATE:


Mussels (no horseradish
or Tabasco)
Oysters (only on the.
half shell)
Eel (???)
Whitefish (they were
fairly easy to catch)
Lobster (but where's the
butter?!?)
Spinach (every young
diner's dream)
Collards (okay, now
we're talking)
Deer (because anytime's


a good time for venison!)
Onions (most pilgrims
slept alone)
Dried Beans (crunchy!)
Parsnips (and most
think they are for
decoration only)
Grapes (for
Thanksgiving?)
Nuts (Because every
holiday needs a few
nuts)
Turnips (Yum!)
Dried blueberries (not
quite in pie form)
And as an added bonus,
most meats back then were
cooked not only with the
heads and feet still at-
tached, but the "humbles"
(all that icky stuff inside)
was cooked and eaten as
well.
So when sitting down to
that beautiful bounty
called a Thanksgiving feast
today, remember what was
on the plate in days of yore.
One might just find some-
thing new to be thankful
for.


Local Resident Published
In Classic Trains Magazine
RAY CICHON
Monticello News
Managing Editor
"Catching the Gulf Wind," the story of a nine year old
boy's first train ride, was published in the Winter edition of
Classic Trains Magazine, by avid local train enthusiast, Max
Bilinski.
Retired teacher and coach at Jefferson County High
School, Bilinski, opens his story with this paraphrase: Ever
since I can remember, I have been fascinated with trains. I like
everything about them: tracks,
switches, depots, and all the rest.
Bililnski continues to tell
the tale of his first train ride
from Drifton to Jack-
sonville, to see the Univer-
sity of Georgia versus the
University of Florida
football game.
In later years, Bilin-
ski went on to become a
University of Florida
graduate, as well as a foot-
ball coach, and staunch
supporter of the "Flying
Tigers," the name given to
JCHS students, which led them
to excel in the late
1980's, both academi- Max Bilinski
cally, and on the grid- avid train enthusiast

DEBBIE SNAPP
Monticello News
Staff Writer
Philip Payne of Boy
Scout Troop 803 was pre-
sented the Eagle Scout
Badge on Saturday, Nov. 8,
2008 at a special ceremony.
The ceremony was
held at the Eagles Nest
scout hut, on South Water
Street, with a large gath-
ering of family, friends,
community leaders, scout
leaders, and scouts from
the surrounding area on
hand.
Becoming an Eagle
Scout is the highest honor
a boy scout can receive.
Payne joins the rank
of other local and accom-
plished leaders that have
received this ranking in-
cluding Buck Bird, attor-
ney, Hank Aaron, baseball
player, and Sam Walton,
Wal-Mart founder.
Payne was pinned by
Dallas Campbell, son of
troop leader Paul Wittig.
Campbell received his
Eagle Scout Badge while
in Troop 803 in 1997.
Payne's Eagle Project
entailed the planting of
five trees that now sur-
round the newest baseball
field on Mamie Scott


Drive. He also built and
erected two bat houses
there.
He is the son of
Frances Collins and John
Collins both of Monticello,


and is a senior at Monti-
cello Christian Academy.
He attends Bethel AME
Church on York Street and
is employed at the Monti-
cello Pizza Kitchen.

ACA JV girl's basket-
ball team won its first two
games of the season last
week.
During the season
opener, the young Lady
Warriors squeaked by
Madison County, 29-28 in a
close, hard-fought and
quarter-to-quarter contest.
Madison is a big and very
athletic school," said
Coach Mac Finlayson. He
added that in the game
against Madison, ACA had
seven of their nine players
and in the game against St.
Francis Aucilla only had
seven players with team
members either being out


due to illness or injury.
Aucilla outscored
Madison in the first two
quarters of the game, 12-6
and 8-4, and Madison came
to life during the second
half to outscore Aucilla in
the third and fourth quar-
ters, 12-4 and 6-5.
Scoring for the Lady
Warriors were Abigail
Vasquez, leading the board
with ten points; Nikki
Hamrick, eight points;
Sarah Sorensen, six
points; and Cheltsie Kins-
ley, five points.
The young Lady War-
riors defeated St. Francis
Catholic of Gainesville
Tuesday evening, 36-13.
Aucilla outscored St.
Francis in all four quar-


ters, taking the first, 11-2;
the second, 7-4; the third,
10-5; and the fourth, 8-2.
Leading the points for
Aucilla was Vasquez with
15 points; Kinsley, 6;
Sorensen, 6; Taylor Baez-
Pridgeon, 2; Vicki Perry, 2;
and Anna Finlayson, 1.
The Lady Warriors
faced off against Hamilton
County Thursday, Nov. 20;
Madison County, Monday
Nov. 24; and FAMU, Tues-
day Nov. 25; but statistics
were not available at press
time.
The JV Lady Warriors
continue fastball action
against FAMU, 4 p.m.,
Tuesday, Dec. 2, there; and
Maclay, 5 p.m., Friday, Dec.
5, there.
