mffeT Lakeland Man Charged With Fleeing, Eluding


Jobless Rate Here Rises Slightly;

Florida's Rate Hits 15-Year High


LAZARO ALEMAN
Monticello News
Senior Staff Writer
Not surprisingly,
Jefferson County's un-
employment rate rose
slightly in October.
Figures released by
the North Florida Work-
force Development
Board (NFWFDB) on
Wednesday, Nov. 26,
show that the county's
seasonally unadjusted
unemployment.rate was
5.5 percent for October,
up 0.2 percent from the
seasonally unadjusted
rate of 5.3 percent re-
ported in September.
The NFWFDB repre-
sents six counties, in-
cluding Jefferson.
Seasonally unadjusted
means that the figures
have not been cleaned of
seasonal patterns and
other factors that may
skew the results.
The 5.5 percent rate
translates into 409 job-
less persons out of a
labor force of 7,422. In
September, 388 county
residents were jobless
out of a workforce of
7,344. -
Meanwhile, the sea-
sonally unadjusted un-


employment rate for the
NFWFDB region (made
up of Jefferson, Hamil-
ton, Lafayette, Madison,
Suwannee and Taylor
counties) was 6.7 per-
cent for October, up 0.3
from the 6.4 percent
recorded in September.
The NFWFDB re-
ports that the region's
annual nonagricultural
employment growth
rate for March 2008 (the
latest available data)
was -0.3 percent, repre-
senting a decrease of 92
jobs from March 2007,
for a total employment
level of 30,587. Indus-
tries losing the most
jobs, according to the
NFWFDB, were manu-
facturing and trade,
transportation and util-
ities. Industries gaining.
jobs during the same pe-
riod were leisure and
hospitality and natural
resources and mining.
Statewide, the sea-
sonally unadjusted un-
employment rate hit 7.0
percent in October, re-
portedly the highest in
15 years. That rate was
6.8 percent in Septem-

A Lakeland Man
was arrested by troop-
ers and charged with
fleeing and attempting
to elude law enforce-
inent officials Nov. 27 in
Jefferson County.
According to
Florida Highway Patrol,
Trooper Sgt. Stewart
Smith, was on patrol
traveling eastbound on
Interstate 10 at the 229-
mile marker. He ob-
served a bright yellow
and black Dodge
Charger SRT/8 Super
Bee four-door traveling
westbound on the Inter-
state at a high rate of
speed in the left lane.
The vehicle was
passing the last car of a
group of three that were
traveling in the right
lane. After passing the
vehicles, the Dodge


switched from the left
lane to the right lane
and began to gain dis-
tance on them due to his
speed. Smith estimated
the speed at about 90
miles per hour and
clocked the vehicle at 92
miles per hour in a 70
miles per hour zone.
Smith drove across
the median and acti-
vated his blue emer-
gency lights and made a,
U-turn in an attempt to
initiate a stop of the ve-
hicle. As Smith entered
the left westbound lane,
he activated his siren.
Smith noticed when
he made it to the 227-
mile marker, he had not
gained any distance on
the vehicle, though he
was traveling at 100
miles per hour. Smith
reported that it ap-
peared that the Dodge
Charger was traveling
at well, over 100 miles

Driver of this 2007 Dodge
Charger SRT/8, John Hamp-
ton, was arrested Thanksgiv-
ing Day for fleeing and
eluding Sgt. Stewart Smith on
1-10, with speed in excess of
100 miles per hour. Smith said
that since fleeing and eluding
is a felony, the car can be
seized, and the paperwork is
currently being processed.
The driver was in possession
of three firearms, one of
which was reported stolen
from the Tallahassee Police
Department. The firearms
were seized and turned over
to the Jefferson County Sher-
iff's Department.

Senior Staff Writer
For residents, mo-
torists and others who
have been wondering
what all the construction
activity around the court-
house circle is about,
they won't have mych
longer to wait to get their
answer: the curbs are in,
the irrigation pipes are
being laid, and the trees
and sod will soon be
planted.


vvhen completed, Lilb
$160,000 project is not
only supposed to make
the courthouse circle
more beautiful and
green, but also make it
more closely resemble its
early 20h Century look.
And this is only phase
one.

ston Lee, who designed

Recouping Storm Costs From


Feds Proving Lengthy Process

Local Contractors Complain County Not Using Their Services


LAZARO ALEMAN
Monticello News
Senior Staff Writer
Local officials are
learning, if they didn't
already know it, that
when it'comes to deal-
ing with the federal gov-
ernment,, it requires a
whole lot of patience.
County Coordinator
Roy Schleicher reported
to commissioners on
Nov. 20 that the local
staff was continuing to
work "with great pa-
tience" on the post trop-
ical storm Fay related
cleanup and restoration
work with FEMA (Fed-
eral Emergency Man-
agement Agency).
As Schleicher ex-
plained it, the local staff
had worked closely with
the FEMA people and
satisfied every request
that the federal agency
had made. But now


those FEMA people
were gone and the new
FEMA person on the
scene wanted the local
staff to redo several of
the things that the ear-
lier group had ap-
proved.
"We're working
through this with great
patience," Schleicher
told commissioners.
"This new FEMA guy is
nice, but he's looking for
new information. He
wants to go see all the
sites again - the ones
that the old FEMA guys
had already checked. It
will take patience. This
is not a typical process
with FEMA. We just
have to be patient."
' Commissioner
Danny Monroe, who has
also been working
closely with the FEMA
people on the project,
quite agreed.


"We just have to do
what they want," Mon-
roe said.
The county has
spent upwards of
$500,000 in borrowed
money to repair roads
and other infrastruc-
ture that tropical storm
Fay destroyed in late
August. County staff
has been working with
FEMA officials ever
since to document the
damage and the repair
expenditures in the
hope that the federal
agency and the state
will reimburse the
county for most of the
repair pcsts;
Meanwhile, two
men who own truck
hauling and excavating
operations here ques-
tioned the county's al-
leged failure to use the

Horse Arena's

New Name:

College Park
LAZARO ALEMAN
Monticello News
Senior Staff Writer
Citizens' response to
county officials'xrequest
for a suggested name for
the park heretofore in-
formally referred to as
the horse arena was un-
derwhelming, to say the
least.
Indeed, only one res-
ident telephoned to sug-
gest a name, and the
message that the indi-
vidual left on the county
coordinator's voice mail
was unintelligible.
.The suggestion re-
portedly called for the
facility to be called
something that sounded
like "the Jefferson Trail
Casino."
In light of the poor
response, commission-
ers opted to go with the
original recommenda-
tion, which was for the

Man Charged


the right to the left lane to
pass a semi and trailer and
appeared to be traveling at
a higher rate of speed than
the trooper.
As Smith crested the
overpass at mile marker
227, he did not have the ve-
hicle in sight, even though
he could see approximately
one mile ahead from the lo-
cation. As Smith drove
through the 226 and 225
mile marker, there was an-
other large hill and he did
not see the vehicle all the
way to the 225 exit at US-19.
Smith continued to
travel westbound and as he
drove over the overpass at
US-19, and as he crested the
hill, he still could not see
the vehicle. Smith radioed
FHP dispatch and asked for
Leon County troopers to be
on the lookout for the vehi-
cle and gave dispatch a de-
scription. He then told
dispatch to contact the Jef-
ferson County Sheriff's Of-
fice and Monticello Police
Department and give them
a description of the vehicle
that was actively fleeing


and eluding.
Smith then slowed
down and made a U-turn
across the median and got
off at US -19 eastbound. He
proceeded south on US-19
and got to the Bethany's
Truck Stop located on the
west shoulder of the high-
way.
Arby's is located on the
south side of the building,
and as Smith drove passed,
he noticed the vehicle
parked in the drive-through
facing south at the drive
through window of the
Arby's restaurant.
Smith drove passed and
made a U-turn and pulled
in front of the vehicle in
the driveway and asked the
driver, identified as John
Hampton, 59, of Lakeland,
FL, to step out of the vehi-
cle, and Smith proceeded to
do a quick pat down.
The trooper asked
Hampton why he was at-
tempting to flee and elude
and Hampton denied at-
tempting to flee and elude,
but he did admit to the
speeding. Hampton was

his point was that he had

Tourist Development Board Seeking


Volunteer Member


The Jefferson County
Tourist Development
Council (TDC),, a group
dedicated to promoting
tourism here, is seeking
a volunteer to serve on
its board. The non-paying
position requires that the
individual attend regular
board meeting and par-

Jobless Rate


ber, described even then as
the worst, since October
1994.
According to the
Agency for Workforce In-
novation, the 7.0 percent
rate translates into 655,000
jobless individuals out of a
workforce of 9.3 million.
The 7.0 percent rate is 0.5-
percentage points higher
than the national unem-
ployment rate of 6.5 per-
cent for October and 2.7
percentage points higher
than the 4.3. percent rate
recorded in October 2007.
Florida's annual nona-
gricultural employment
growth rate for October
was -1.9 percent, represent-
ing a loss of 156,200 jobs
from October 2007, for a
total employment level of
7,875,800. The drop is
largely attributed to de-
clines in the construction
industry.
If there is any silver
lining to the unemploy-
,ment; picture; .it's that, the
federal government ex-
tended jobless benefits on
Nov. 21. The new law allows
benefits to be extended up
to 13 weeks in states with

cello only on Dec. 10. It will

On another note, the
Employment Connection is
hosting what it purports
will be an annual Employ-
ers Expo on Friday, Dec. 5.
The event will be held 1-5

Circle Construction


funding for the project in
conjunction with the Main
Street Program, the goal ul-
timately is to install
wrought-iron benches, gas-
lit lamps and other Victo
rian-era touches that will
underscore the circle's his-.
toric character.
The latter .enhance-
ments depend on the com-
munity securing .the,
necessary state and other
funding down the line - a
prospect that's not looking
overly bright at present,
given the dim economic sit-
uation. In terms of the cur-
rent work, however, Lee last
week attempted to answer
what he said were the most
persistent questions about
the project:
No. 1: The improve-
ments will actually increase
the number of legal parking
spaces on the circle, he said.
putting special emphasis on
the word legal. He was re-
ferring to the practice of
some to maximize the space
availability by double park-
ing or simply pulling into
the paved areas just outside
the street proper - space
that is now being taken up
by the planter islands.
No. 2: An underground
irrigation system is being
installed as part of the proj-
ect, so that the newly
planted sod and trees can be
watered automatically, spar-
ing city personnel from hav-
ing to perform the task
manually.
Additionally, under-
ground, conduits are also
being installed in prepara-
tion for the eventuality of
natural gas fueled lamps
being installed on the court-
house circle or electrical
wiring run underground


for the lighting of the
Christmas and other deco-
rations during special occa-
sions.
No. 3: No local dollars
are being spent.on the trees,
which are being bought
with a. state grant that re-
quires that at least half of
the $160,000 be used for the
purchase of trees. What's
more, the trees to be planted
are hybrids called high-rise
oaks, a special type that
grows tall before spreading
its branches, so that they
will not interfere with the
circle traffic. Likewise for
the palms, which suppos-
edly existed on the circle
previously and which will
add to the: historic am-
biance.,
No. 4: Contrary to the
perception or'popular be-
lief, the planter islands have
been designed so as not to
interfere with the traffic
around the courthouse cir-
cle, Lee said. In fact, the
Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT),
which awarded the $160,000
grant, has reviewed and ap-
proved the design, he said.
That review entailed the
FDOT running computer
traffic simulations that
showed that the roadway, as
defined by the planters, re-
mains more than adequate
for large trucks to negotiate
the route, Lee said.
On a related point, the
City Council was expected
to approve on Tuesday
evening the removal of sev-
eral existing trees around
the courthouse circle to
make way for the new trees.
The trees' marked for re-
moval include a few of the
decorative Bradford pears
next to the Opera House and

addressed to TDC Direc-
tor Nancy Wideman and

cant's qualifications and
other pertinent informa-
tion.

at least two water oaks on
the northwest corner, near
Jake's and Edenfield.
Lee made his case for
removal of the trees to the
City Council at 'a special
workshop on Tuesday
night, Nov. 25. Because the
rules prevent officials from
taking formal action at a
workshop, the council mem-
bers merely indicated their
favorable disposition to-
ward the request, which
they were expected to ap-
prove Tuesday, Dec. 2.
Lee's argument for re-
moval of the trees: They
were the wrong species at
the wrong place; they.were
diseased; their root systems
were tearing up the side-
walks; they would eventu-
ally have to be removed
anyway, as the new trees
took over; and the state
- money to remove them was
.available, making it ex-
tremely cost effective to do
so now.
Miss the opportunity,
when the state funds were
available and the contractor
had the area torn up, and
the city would have to re-
move the trees at its own
cost later, Lee said.
"Now is the ideal time
to get the trees out and do it
cost effective," Lee said.
"They're the wrong trees in
the wrong place. They're
diseased and they need to
go. And the grant dollars to
take them out are there
now."
Lee added that the in-
tent all along had been to re-
move the trees in time. But
with the state funding be-
coming available suddenly
and unexpectedly, it made
sense to proceed with the re-
movals now, he said.

SAM ALEXANDER


Time to Sell..or

Time to Buy?
Provided by Robert J. Davison
We're in a recession, which could be severe. Several financial
services companies have either collapsed or been bailed out
by the government. And.the stock market is down about 45
percent' since hitting its peak in October of 2007. Is this a
"perfect storm" that should blow investors out of the market
- or is it actually an opportunity for investors to jump back
in?
If you're an investor, your first impulse might be to join the
"get out while you can" camp. After all, it's no fun seeing the
market plunge hundreds of points one day - and then hun-
dreds more the next day. And we keep getting hit by waves
of bad economic news. What possible reason could there be
for remaining invested in the market, or even adding more.
dollars to your current investments?
Actually, you might be surprised. Some strong historical evi-
dence suggests that, during a period such as we are now in,
you may indeed benefit by not only staying, invested, but also
increasing your investment dollars in the financial markets.
Consider this: In nine of the last ten recessions, dating back
to 1949, the S & P 500 had moved up by at least 29 percent
just 12 months after hitting its lowest point during the reces-
sion. Of course, as you've no doubt heard, past performance
is no guarantee of future results, but it's interesting to note
that the market eventually recovered after each recession.
However, no one can really predict when stocks will reach
that low point. It's possible we've already hit it, but it's just
as likely that we'll see further drops.
And yet, even if you can't say that we've hit a market low,
should you sell your stocks to "cut your losses" and use the
proceeds to buy what you perceive as less risky investments?
Before making this move, you need to consider some impor-
tant facts. For example, if you pulled out of the stock market
and purchased certificates of deposit (CDs) from a strong fi-
nancial institution, you could reasonably expect that your
principal will be safe and that you will receive the interest
payments promised to you. But the interest rate you receive
may not even keep up with inflation, so, over time, your in-
vestment could end up costing you purchasing power.
On the other hand, if you were' t6 remain invested in the
stock market, and if it does follow historical pattems, you do
.have a chance of making up your losses. \Will there be con-
tinued volatility in day-to-day price movements? Almost cer-
tainly. But keep in mind that, over the long term, a portfolio
that contains a reasonable amount of stocks, along with
bonds, government securities and other investments, gives
you the best chance of achieving your financial goals.
And here's another reason to keep investing: As measured by
the price-to-earnings ratio (P/E), stocks are currently inex-
pensive. If you buy more shares when prices are down, your
increased ownership stake should become more valuable when
stocks recover - as they have done following every bear mar-
ket in the past.
It's tough to stay positive during a gloomy market environ-
ment. But the most successful investors are often the ones
who have the courage to be optimistic when everyone around
them is not.

Free Success Mentoring Dec. 10

Staff Writer
Author Michael Dlouhy
will present free "Success
in 10 Steps" training at the;
Monticello Chamber of
Commerce 7 p.m. until 10
p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 10.
"Anyone can create a
lifetime friendship with a
total stranger in just five
minutes," claims Dlouhy,
and to prove it, he is offer-
ing the free training locally.
Dlouhy's book, "Suc-
cess in 10 Steps" has been
downloaded over 100,000
times online. The author is
currently on a nationwide
book promotion tour and
has personally trained hun-
dreds of individuals in Bal-
timore, Philadelphia, New
York City, Montreal,
Toronto, Chicago, Detroit,
Cleveland, Dallas, Houston,,
and 30 other cities. Why
come to Monticello?
"I have a buddy who
lives in Monticello " said
Dlouhy "He twisted my
arm." :\


Michael Diouhy
" A lot of complicated
books have been written
about this formula," says
Richard Dennis, Dlouhty's
friend in Monticello.
"Michael has made it sim-
ple. When you go to his
training, he listens to you
talk for a few seconds then
he tells you a great deal
about your own personal-
ity. People are pretty
amazed at how accurate it

do what he does, spot a per-
sonality type and quickly
create a lifetime friend."
- Dennis continues, "It's
usef- ' with family aiid
friends too. When you
know someone close to you
is a different personality
type than you, it helps you
to be more tolerant. It's
easier to understand why
people do what they do.
Life is simpler, less stress-
ful."
Dennis says he has
used Dlouhty's technique
to build a worldwide mar-
keting organization by tele-
phone. "I was pretty
skeptical when Michael
first told me about this sys-
tem. But now, I use it all
the time," he said. "Most
of us focus on ourselves
when we talk to someone
and to be happier in life or
successful in business, you
need to 'really listen to the
other person and under-
stand them. Michael has
figured out an easy way to
do that. That's the real
skill he teaches."

Lady Warriors Split Two;



Stand 4-1 On Season


FRAN HUNT
Monticello News
Staff Writer
ACA Varsity girls split games with
Madison County, and FAMU, last week,
to stand 4-1 on the season.
Monday, Nov. 24 the Lady Warriors
defeated Madison County 42-14. ACA led
in the first three quarters, and was
outscored by Madison in the fourth. "We
knew we had it in the bag at that time
and gave them a. chance," said Coach
Daryl Adams.
Aucilla blanked Madison 14-0 in the
first; downed Madison 14-2 in the second;
defeated Madison 10-2 in the third, and
fell 4-10 in the fourth.
Leading the scoreboard for the Lady
Warriors was Mallory Plaines with 14
points and five rebounds; and Kaitlin
Jackson with 12 points.
Brooke Kinsey scored 2 points;
Tiffany Brasington, 6 points; Savannah
Williams, 2 points, 5 rebounds; Chelsea.
Dobson, 2 points, 5 rebounds; Pamela
Watt, 2 points; and Miranda Wider, 2
points.
Aucilla suffered its first loss of the
season, 38-25, to FAMU High Tuesday,
Nov. 25.
"We were ahead at the half, but I
guess we ran out of gas in the fourth,"


said Adams. "FAMU is a great team with
a lot of depth and strength, and they have
one freshman who already averages 20
points per game. FAMU scored 4-6 points
in the final minute of the fourth."
ACA outscored FAMU 8-6 in the first;
tied the second 6-6; dropped both the
third 6-13; and the fourth, 5-13.
Adams said FAMU learned early on,
and made a habit of surrounding ACA
lead scorer Mallory Plaines to prevent
her adding any black to the Aucilla
board.
Scoring for Aucilla were Brasington
with 2 points; Williams, 2 points, 4 re-
bounds and 1 blocked shot; Dobson with 4
points and 8. rebounds; Jackson with 12
points, 4 rebounds, and 2 steals; Plaines
with 5 points, 5 rebounds and 2 steals;
and Wider with 3 rebounds.
The Lady Warriors faced off against
Westwood Monday Dec. 1, but statistics
were unavailable at press time. Prior to
the Westwood game, Adams said, "They
are, a well-coached team and we usually
place close. It all depends on how many
players they graduated last year.
Aucilla faced off against FAMU Tues-
day evening Dec. 2 but no stats were
available as of press time,;and hardwood
action continues against Altha, 5:30 p.m.,
Friday Dec. 5, there.


ACA Varsity Boys Drop Season Opener


Luke Witmer
FRAN HUNT
Monticello News
Staff Writer
Varsity Warriors basket-
ball team dropped the season
opener against FAMU, 32-70,
Monday, Nov. 25.
Coach Dan Nennstiel said
the game started off close, but
soon, it became quite obvious,
that FAMU had too much of a
lead'for the Warriors to even
consider any kind of come-
back.
"Once we realized that
their lead was too big, we
started using new plays,
swapping out the more sea-
soned players with those who
have had little or no time on
the courts. We were trying
new defenses, and pretty
much experimenting with
things that could work for us
later in the season," said
Nennstiel. He added that
FAMU outscored the War-


riors 25-2 in the fourth quar-
ter.
The Warriors dropped in
12 of 40 from the field for 30
percent, and 2 of 7 from the
three-point zone for 29 per-
cent. They hit two of three, 67
percent, from the free-throw
line, for a total of 32 points.
Aucilla racked up 14 assists, 6
offensive and 14 defensive re-
bounds for a total of 20, had 24
bock/steals and was plagued
with 40 turnovers.
Individually, Clark
Christy (11) dropped in 1 of 5
(20 percent) from the field for
2 points, 2 assists, 3 offensive
and 5 defensive rebounds,
with 7 block/steals and 3
turnovers.
Luke Witmer (2) sank 1 of
4 (25 percent) from the field
and 2 of 7 (29 percent) from the
three-point zone for a total of
8 points, had 3 defensive re-
bounds, 1 block/steal and 12
turnovers.
Stephen Dollar (3) netted
5 of 10 (50 percent) from the
field, and 2 of 3 (67 percent)
from the free throw line for a
total of 12 points, 4 assists, 2
offensive and 2 defensive re-
bounds for a total of 4, 5
block/steals, and 10
turnovers.
Alex Dunkle (23) failed to
connect with 8 attempts from
the field had 5 assists, and 1
defensive rebound, 3
block/steals, and 2 turnovers.
John Stephens (35) con-


nected with 1 of 2 from the
field (50 percent) for 2 points,
had 1 offensive rebound, 2
block/steals and 4 turnovers.
Brandon Dunbar (21)
made 2 attempts from the
field, which failed to bucket,
had 1 assist, 3 block/steals,

We would like to express our deepest Thanks to all our family and pg a
friends, loyal emlo oyees and customers. When Larry was diagnosed 0
with tongue cancer just after Christmas last year, we had no idea of g
the road we were to travel in 2008. The road has been tough this year,
but through God's grace and all of your support and prayers Larry has survived the treat-
ments needed to send this awful disease packing.
We are happy to report that Larry is now 100% cancer free, getting stronger every day.
lie is now gaining some of his weight back and resuming most of his activities ... even
going fishing and hunting. We have now resumed our positions at Thomasville Pools &
Spas and look forward to another successful year serving this fme community in all of
your pool and spa needs. We encourage everyone to stop in and say hello so that we can
personally thank you all for your prayers, concern and support. May God bless you ALL
with a wonderful holiday season!
