Monticello News '
Staff Writer
Deputies arrested a
Tallahassee man last
weeli and charged him
with two counts .of
grand theft.
The Jefferson
County Sheriff's Office
reported that Deputy
Chris Eades responded
to VMS, Dec. 12, 2007.
located at 1455 North
Jefferson Street, in ref-
erence to a tractor
trailer rig that was


taken between. 3:45
p.m., Dec. 7-2007 and 11.
p.m., Dec. 8,2007.
After gathering in-.
formation, the tractor
and trailer were re-
ported stolen by Eades,
and on Dec. 12, Eades
received information
from Florida Highway
Patrol- Trooper John
Castleberry, that he had
initiated a traffic stop
on Dec. 8, 2007 on a ve-
hicle that was reported
stolen, also pulling a
tractor and trailer rig.


The driver of the
stolen vehicle was iden-
tified as Jameel Tucker,


Jameel Tucker


31, of Tallahassee.
Tucker was arrested
for various offenses
and transported to the
Leon County Jail.
Eades reported
that due to the tractor
and trailer not being
reported at the time of
Tucker's arrest, Eades
learned where the rig
was towed, and Dec. 12,
2007, Eades escorted
VMS Supervisor War-
ren Musslewhite to the
vehicle's location. He
positively identified


the rig as belonging to
VMS, paid the towing
bill and the property
was released to him.
Tucker was ar-
rested April 16, 2009
and charged with two
local counts of grand
theft. A total bond of
$5,000 was set locally
and he remained at the

pulling a trailer, was
traveling west on US-27,
through the intersection
of CR-259.. Brockman's
vehicle, failed to stop at
the stop sign at the inter-
section of US-27 as
Conger, was traveling


through it.
The Chrysler trav-
eled north through the
intersection and under-
neath the trailer being
towed by Conger. The
rear axel configuration
of Conger's trailer
struck the right front
side of the Chrysler.
The Chrysler came
to rest facing west on US-
27, west of CR-259.
Conger's rig came to a
rest several yards west of
the Chrysler on US-27,
facing west.
Francis was trans-
ported to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital, via
Life Flight with critical
injuries, where he later
expired. Brockman sus-
tained serious injuries,
and Black and Hicks suf-
fered minor injurious.
Conger was uninjured.
FHP did not deem the
crash to be alcohol-relat-
ed at the time, .but addi-
tional charges were
pending further investi-
gation. All involved/.
were wearing seat belts.
Assisting FHP on
the scene were deputies
from the Jefferson
County Sheriff's Office,
Jefferson County Fire
Rescue, Lloyd Volunteer,
Fire Department,
Jefferson County EMS,
and officers from the


Monticello


Police


Department.
The FHP investiga-
tion conducted by Cpl.
Brandon Overstreet,
determined that Hicks
was in .actual physical
control of the Chrysler
and did operate the
vehicle, while under the
influence of an alco-
holic beverage.
The investigation
also revealed sworn wit-
ness interviews from
Black, an uninvolved
witness, Conger, and

Florida that traces its
roots in the state to the

Reagan Republican
("I'm pretty conserva-
tive overall," Bronson
said), he was more
interested in getting
the job done and done
well than in scoring
political points, he
said.
"I'mi practical,"
said Bronson, who
received more votes
than any other candi-
dates for a state office
in 2006. "There are

wu jiJ.-mansi.aug erJ. .
Bond was set at $25,000
and he remained in the
County Jail April 17.


As a former legisla-
tor, Bronson said he
well appreciated the
dilemma.
"We managed to
spend a lot of money,
during the good years
and that spending
helped some folks,"
Bronson said. "But
when' th 'ioneie "is'
gone, thd'itih and cry is
'cut, them, don't cut.,
us'."
Where he differed
from 'his Republican
colleagues butted
heads, he actually said
- was in the area of
personnel cutbacks. In
the. abstract, he well'
understood the num-
bers on the various eco-
nomic reports, he said.
But as the head of a
department of 3,700
employees with a multi-
tude of responsibilities
that ranged from assur-
ing the state's food safe-'
ty to licensing guns to
safeguarding con-
sumers' rights and that
affected millions of
Floridians, he also
understood that the
numbers were tied to
real people with, real
needs and dependent
families, he said.
' ."My comment to
my Republican col-
leagues is that not a
single one of these
employees got there on
their own," Bronson
said. "We asked them to
perform a specific job
and now we have to tell
them the job is not
there anymore, at a
time when there are no
private jobs either."
In the case of his
department, he had
seen the writing on the
wall a year ago and had
acted to address the
problem even then,
freezing some 50 to 60
open positions and
spreading the workload
among the remaining
workers in order to
avoid having to take
more drastic measures
later.
"It's a daunting
position to be in,"
Bronson said.
He criticized the
Florida Forever pro-
gram, which he said 81
percent of Floridians
supported. He too liked
the woods and wildlife,
Bronson said. But
today, 5.2 million acres
of Florida lands were
under state protection


news media had not yet
disseminated. Namely,
that information was
that the two plants in


and another four mil-
lion were under federal
protection. This was 10,
million acres that did-
n't produce crops, raise
cattle, pay taxes or gen-
erate jobs or industry
and that the state
couldn't even maintain
and so consequently
were being overrun by
nonnative species, he
said.
How many millions
of acres could an indi-
vidual actually walk?
Bronson asked. The
idea of woods and'
wildlife was fine in the
abstract, but how much
preserved land did the
state really need?
Meanwhile, private
property owners were
paying heavier taxes to
make up for those pre-
served lands that
weren't paying taxes.
Which explained in
part how the state had
gotten into its present-
economic predicament,
he suggested.
"Here's your sign
for why we're here,"
Bronson said, referring
to a comedy routine
where the humor lies in
revealing the stupidity
of questions for which
the answers are readily
obvious.
:"We need to focus
on what we want,
Florida to look like and
how we're going to
spend our money to get
there," Bronson said.
"We've got groups that
have painted us into the-
fodr corners of the
room and nobody
knows how. to get out.
'It's dysfunctional.
We've allowed our-
selves to be boxed in."
He. lambasted, .the
Food and Drug
Administration (FDA)
and the Free Trade
agreement, to the
degree that the first
allowed political con-
siderations to influence
its decisions and the
latter because it Edidn't
allow for implementa-
tion of .standards to
prevent pests and dis-
eases from entering the
country.
Bronson offered the.
tomatoes and more
recent peanuts salmo-
nella scares as exam-
ples of the FDA harm-
ing Florida industries
by going public with
the information prema-
turely. In the case of
the tomatoes, the cul-
prit had turned out to
be Mexican peppers
that were used in a
salsa product, Bronson
said. That, however,
hadn't prevented the
early released of the
.information from
harming Florida's
tomato industry.
What's more, when
he had confronted the
head of the FDA and
asked that the agency
clear Florida's toma-
toes, the FDA head had
responded, "I'm not
clearing Florida unless
I can clear Mexico,"
Bronson said.
"He was more con-
cerned about the Free
Trade issue than about
the domestic market,"
Bronson said. "That's
wrong. They're hurting
businesses, jobs, the
economy and under-
mining consumer con-
fidence in the food sup-
ply.'
As for the current
peanut salmonella
scare, he shared infor-
mation that he said the


Bronson was the
guest of Kiwanian Bill
Gunnels, of Capital
City Bank.


YOUR BEST CHOICE IN A


Georgia and Texas
under investigation
had each received ship-
ments of peanut paste
from Mexico and taken.
in peanuts from China.
Yet the people being
hurt by the FDA action
were the peanut grow-
ers in Florida, Georgia
and other states, he
said.
"Once. again, the
federal agency is
telling people not to eat
peanuts," Bronson
said. *"That kind of
information has shut
down part of the econ-
omy. They should have
kept their mouths shut
until they narrowed
down the problem.
We're. in the shape
*we're in because peo-
ple don't use common
sense in dealing with
businesses. Florida is
being affected even
though it wasn't part of
the problem."
Bronson briefly
touched on the state of
Florida's agriculture
in general and its cat-
tle and citrus indus-
tries in particular.
He said agriculture
in general was doing
well and had possibly
overtaken tourism as
the state's number one
industry, given the lack
of travel now because
of the economic down-
turn. The cattle indus-
try, meanwhile, was
losing ground, largely
because of the environ-
mental community's
insistence on iitttin.'
productive l'aid' -ThR
preservation.. -.: .'
"And then we can't
even maintain it so
that non-native species
take over," .Bronson
. reiterated.
I As for the citrus
industry, he said
Florida was still bigger
than California in the
production of orange
juice (California is big-
ger in the production
of fresh fruits), but
Brazil controlled the
overall orange juice
industry.
He shared that
Florida had taken out
six million citrus trees
a few years back in an
attempt to contain the
canker disease out-
break in south Florida,
only to have two con-
secutive years of hur-
ricanes spread the dis-
ease across the state.
And how had the
canker developed? It
had arrived at Miami
Airport from a foreign
shipment and spread
from there, Bronson
said.
"Free Trade means
that you can trade pest'
and disease as fast as
you can trade anything
else," he said. "Free
Trade is one thing, but
let's not kill our own
industries. We find
four neW pests and dis-
eases in Florida every
month."
Bronson con-
firmed that he plans to
run for governor if
Crist decides to seek
the US Senate seat that
Mel Martinez will be
vacating. But he said
come what would, he
planned to remain in
rural north Florida,
which reminded h:.in
of the Kissimmee of
his youth. The
Kissimmee of today,
he said, was a big, fast-
paced community'that
no longer appealed to
him.

I wish to thank everyone who worked so
hard to prepare and furnish the Cancer
Survivors' Dinner at the Opera House
Tuesday night, April 14, 2009.
Due to unrelated health issues, my hus-
band was unable to attend, and I was unable
to stay for the program. Nonetheless, I was
given a survivor's T-slirt for Melvin; I was
taken to the head of the line, and allowed to
bring a meal home to my husband. Mrs.

The people of Jefferson County are very
fortunate to have such caring, hard working
people. I have never lived anyplace else
where people showed so much love for their

Corporate Earning Announcements Create Optimism


By Michael Curtis
A Special From Greene
Publishing, Inc.
A series of better-
than-expected bank
earnings reports last
week,.coupled with some
tentatively encouraging
economic data, suggest
the economy and the
financial system might
not be quite as sick as
many had believed. As.
expected, however, oth-
ers disagree as analysts
are wrestling with
whether the economy is
making a fitful climb
back up or whether
the crisis will get worse
before it gets better..
"We're beginning to
get a little visibility on
how banged up corpo-
rate America has been,"
Mark Vitner, senior
economist at, Wachovia
Corp., told the.
Associated Press regard-\
ing earnings reports-
from Citigroup Inc. and
General Electric Co. But
the better-than-antici-
pated results from the
banking giant and the
diversified manufactur-
er -' among the most


beat up companies in
their industries hold
up the idea' "that just
maybe we can see some
light at the end of the
tunnel now," added
Vitner, who anticipates
an end to the recession
toward year's end but
continued high unem-
ployment well into 2010.
Citigroup lost
money in the first quar-
ter and General
Electric's profits fell, but
both beat Wall Street's
expectations. Their
financial performance is,
being closely dissected
for signposts of where
the, economy might be
heading. w
, Citigroup, which
has been the weakest of
the large U.S. banks,'
reported its smallest loss
since 2007. The financial
services company post-
ed a first-quarter loss to
common shareholders of
$966 million after mas-
sive loan losses and divi-
dends to preferred stock-
holders. However, before
paying those dividends,
which were tied to the
government's $45 billion


Invest in Your Goals

Provided by Robert J. Davison
During difficult times in the financial markets, it can be
hard to stay committed to investing. After all, if many of
your investments have lost value, you might be tempted
to just put your money under your mattress. But that's not"
really a productive use of your funds, and it almost cer-,
tainly.won't help you achieve your objectives. So instead
ofihoosing the mattress route, try changing theiwapyyou
lo4k at your financial situation by focusing more on
your long-term goals and less on the day-to-day perform-.
ance of your individual investments.
In other words, you're not only investing in "Investment'
A"--- you're investing for a comfortable retirement. And
you're not just putting money away in "Investment B" -
you're saving for your child's college education.
Once you realize that you are actually investing in these
long-term goals, you may find it easier to cope with the
ups and downs of investments A, B, C and all the others
you own. Of course, this doesn't mean you never have to.
adjuistyour portfolio, but if you are investing in your goals,
and not just indiVidual vehicles, you'll find it easier to
maintain the focus you-.need to employ suitable invest-
merit techniques.
What are some of these techniques? Consider the follow-
ing .
* Invest appropriately for your stage of life. The long
and steep stock market decline- of recent months has
been especially painful for investors within a few years
of retirement. Not only have these people sustained
losses, but they also have only a limited amount of
time in their working lives for their portfolios tore-
coup value. Unfortunately, to help pay for living ex-,
penses in retirement, they may eventually have to sell
investments whose values are down. To avoid this
problem, you will need an adequate amount of cash
instruments and fixed-income investments available
during your retirement.
* Look for quality. Market downturns can hurt most
types of investments, but quality stocks usually lose
the least in value and recover the quickest. To find
these quality stocks, look for companies with superior
track records of performance, strong managementt
teams and competitive products. Also, study the in-
dustry to which these firms belong. While past per-
formance is not an indication of future results, some
industries have better prospects for growth than oth-
ers.
* Buy and hold, After you've built a portfolio of quality
investments, hold them until either your needs
change or the investments' fundamentals change. By
purchasing quality investments, and holding them for
the long term, you can help boost your chances for
success while cutting down on the costs both fi-
nancial and strategic associated with frequent buy-
ing and selling.
* Maintain reasonable expectations. Back in the 1990s,
many investors got used to average annual returns of
15 percent or more. But these returns were more of an
aberration than a representative sample. For a variety
of reasons, most investment experts foresee more mod-
est returns in the near future. Once you accept this
premise, you are far less likely to be disappointed with
your own returns, and you will be less prone to make
hasty decisions that may also prove to be bad ones.
By following these suggestions, and by always remember-
ing that the goals for which you are investing are more
important than short-term investment returns, you can
stay on track toward the future you've envisioned.

Watermelons have
been-a part of Jefferson
County's agriculture
since the late 1800s when
local farmers were try-
ing to find an alternative
to king cotton.
In the late 1800s,
farmers were seeking a
new crop, which would
bring in hefty profits as
cotton had for so many
previous years.
At first, they began
planting common veg-
etables such as cucum-
bers,, Irish.potatoes, cab-
bages, onions, pears, and
beets. : Many farmers
tried different crops in
order to find one that

Girardeau had been,
involved with the couni-

years:as was his father

The Girardeau fami-

they planted cotton.

That same year, the
local publication, the

that there were 300 acres
of watermelons, which
could be seen from- the

to tear the melon apart

Their work. With a bit of
exaggeration, the man
said "At the bottom of,
every hill, there was a
spring." During the
watermelon harvest
months, there was a
group of hired hands
working at most springs
washing the seeds for
shipment.
The Girardeau Seed
Company, which was
being managed by R.L.
Eaton at the time, was
the largest single pro-
ducer of watermelon
seed, but there were sev-
eral others who -planted
on large scales.
Near Monticello,
D.H. Gilbert and Frank
Sattler planted water-
melon fields. Frank
Taylor and WB. Bishop
planted their melon
acreage near Lloyd. At
Lamont, W.J. Hatchett,
later succeeded by Felix.
Bullard, was the largest
melon producer.
Gilbert, Sattler,
Taylor, Robert E. Lee
Evans, and EE. Brown
sold seeds to buyers all


over the United States
and about a dozen for-
eign countries. They
contracted to deliver a-
certain' quantity of
seeds, in advance; with
the agreements
arranged, they would
then buy the entire yield
of smaller melon pro-
ducers.
In 1918, Gilbert had
shipped 32,000 pounds of
seed by August 'and had
orders for 38,000 pounds
.more from the same
client. He had orders in
hand which totaled
420,000 pounds. Having
paid out about $75,000 to.
local growers, Gilbert
estimated that the other
seed mern together could
equal that amount.
The 1918 crop was
estimated (at nearly
$200,000 .in value to the


growers. This large sum
was in addition to the
substantial amount of
melons, which were also
being shipped at the
time.
As the decades went
on; the watermelon pro-
duction thrived.
Recently, however, the
yield has increasingly
begun to decline. In the
2002 Agricultural
Census, only 118- acres
had been used for plant-
ing watermelon.
According to the
Florida Watermelon
Association, there are
no major seed produc-
ers left in Jefferson
County Hopefully, it
will be several more
years before the water-
melon completely van-
isles from Jefferson
County.

ALFA HUNT
Stctf Writer
What was the purpose of Earth Day? How
did it start?
The idea for Earth Day evolved over a peri-
od of seven years starting in 1962. For several
years. Senator Gaylord Nelson had been trou-
bled because the state of the environment was
a non-issue in national politics.
Finally, in November 1962. an idea
occurred to Senator Nelson. The idea was to
persuade President Kennedy to make the issue
visible by. going on a national conservation
tour. Nelson flew to Washington to discuss the
Proposal with Attorney General Robert
Kennedy, who liked the idea, as did the presi-
. dent.
The President began the five-day, eleven-
state conservation tour in September 1963. For
many reasons the tour did not succeed in put-
ting the issue onto the political agenda.
However, it was-seed of the idea which would
eventually lead to Earth Day.
Senator Nelson continued to speak on
environmental issues in some twenty-five
states. All across the country, evidence of
environmental degradation was appearing,
and the people began to notice except the.
political establishment. The people were con-
cerned, bit politicians were not.
After'President Kennedy's tout, Senator
Nelson still hoped for something to bring the
environmental issue into the light for politi-
cians. Six years would pass before the idea'
that became Earth Day occurred to Nelson
while he was on a conservation speaking tour
out West in 1969.
Anti-Vietnam War demonstrations, called
"teach-ins," had spread to college campuses
all across the nation. The idea of organizing a
huge grassroots protest over what was hap-
pening to the environment had occurred to
Senator Nelson. Nelson was satisfied with the
: idea of forcing the issue into the political
agenda by fusing the concerns of the public
and the student energy. He knew it was a large
gamble, but figured it was worth a try.
At a conference in Seattle in September
1969. Nelson announced that in the spring of
1970 there would be a nationwide grassroots
demonstration and everyone was invited. The
wire services carried the story from coast to
coast and the response was electric.
S. .Telegrams, letters, and telephone
- quiries poured in from all across the counli
,trThe American'people finally had a public
embly to express its concern aboilt.tw

As Te.o&6ezr- At ACA,

RAY CICHON
Monticello News L
AlManaging Editor
Now in her 40"t vear .
of teaching, Linda
Wheeler will retire as a
Kindergarten teacher
at Aucilla Christian
Academy. in NMay She 2II
remarks: "My reason
for stopping my teach-
ing career now is not
that I don't love teach-
ing, or children. If I
waited for that time to
come. I would probably
never stop. So let's just
say that 40 years is a
good, even number to
stop on."
Born and raised in
Monticello. Wheeler's Linda Wheeler
first -'ita -h .' :'":,-'" .- x" .. ,_ = .


ing were spent at
Jefferson Elementary
School. During the
next seven years, she
owned and operated a
"Preschool Learning
Center." and for the
past 27 years, she
taught Kindergarten at
ACA.
Commenting about
what affords her the
most ', fulfillment,
Wheeler notes: "I love
the children; watching
them grow and learn.
They are like little
sponges, and soak up
and absorb so much..
"It is especially
rewarding in
Kindergarten to help
them learn how to
read. It is also a very
special feeling when
children slip up and&
accidentally call me
'Mama,' as I do consid-
er thehi to be mine,
when they are at
school."
She plans to keel)
in touch at ACA. and
perhaps do some' vol-
unteer work, or.some,
substitute teaching.
One of the situa-
tions in her teaching.
which she finds aggra-
vating is when she puts


much time and
thought into her week-
ly newsletters for par-
ents, to keep them
informed, and some
parents don't read the
newsletters and' then'
complain that they
weren't informed of
what was going on.
Her advice to a new
teachers to be fun,,
fair, and firm.
Establish your plan of
discipline the very
first day of school; and
be consistent with it.
because it's easier to
begin stricter, and
become more lenient,
than to lose control
and try to regain it, she
believes.
Other words of
wisdom Wheeler
shares with new teach-
ers: Keep the lines of
communication open
with parents. and
encourage them to dis-
cuss their concerns
.and questions.
Likewise, always be
open and receptive to
new ideas, as there is
always room for
imp rove m e n t .
Constructive criticism
should always be
accepted in the spirit it


is offered. A
As a veteran
teacher. Wheeler .S
shares .these Don'ts in <
teaching: Respect con-
fidentiality. .Don't
repeat confidential
information about
your students. Unless
you are qualified to do
so. Do not,'attempt to
diagnose a student's
learning disability or,,
problem,, but recom-
mend professional test-
ing.
In her free time, S
she likes to work in the
yard and tend to her
flowers. She enjoys
feeding the outdoor'
birds, and .going for '
Walks with her. dog,
Sugar. She comments:
"I'm real homebody. I"
enjoy taking -carp ,,of
my home. Cooking is -
fun for me, too, espe-
cially on special occa-
sions." .
Wheeler't has been
married to Carrie
Wheeler for 42 years.
They have two .chil-
dren: Liz Walker (and
Derek). and Lee
