LAZARO ALEMAN

Senior Staff Writer
Almost exactly
seven months after the
groundbreaking cere-
mony for the Emergency
Operations Center (EOC)
at the industrial park,
elected officials and
members of the public
gathered at the site
again on Friday, June 19,
to celebrate the dedica-
tion of the completed fa-
cility.
But the traditional
ribbon-cutting cere-
mony, held at the estab-
lishment's front
entrance, was of neces-


sity brief, given the sti-
fling summer heat and
everyone's desire to re--
treat indoors into air-
conditioned comfort.
,efferson Emer-
gency Management Di-
rector Carol Ellerbe
performed the ribbon
cutting. Ellerbe called
the occasion "a very
spiritual moment" for,
her, representing the cul-
mination of an effort
that took years to accom-
plish and that involved a
great many people. She
called the EOC the first
step toward the realiza-
tion of local officials' vi-
sion to one day have all


the emergency services
located at the industrial
park..
Ellerbe thanked
everyone who had taken
part in the EOC effort,
including county com-
missioners, the legisla-
tive lobbying committee
and the state and federal
agencies that provided'
the funding for the proj-
ect. She said the new fa-
cility would help better
coordinate the crisis
management efforts of
the various emergency
services during natural
and manmade disasters.
Following her brief
comments, Ellerbe cut


the red ribbon stretched
across the building's
doorway. The 70-or-so
people attending the cer-
emony then reentered
the building, where
many toured the facility
and partook of the avail-
able cake and refresh-
ments.
Among those in at-
tendance were Commis-
sioners Danny Monroe,
Stephen Fulford and
Hines Boyd, Sheriff
David Hobbs, Represen-
tative Leonard Bembry,

DOE Releases

School Grades:


JES 'C,'


JCMHS 'F'
RAY CICHON
Monticello News
Managing Editor
DOE released the Dis-
trict School Grades
Thursday, June 18. The
grades are a composite of
improvement in FCAT
Levels. (FCAT is graded
on Levels from one to
five- with Level three con-
sideretd the State passing
grade.)
Other factors com-
prising the school grades
are: maintaining Level
three, four, or five on the
FCAT, and improvement
more than one year
within Level one or two.
In addition,, the per-
centage of students meet-
ing high standards of
Level 3 and above, the
percentage of students
making learning gains,
adequate progress of the
lowest 25 percent of stu-
dents in the school, and
the percentage of eligible
students tested, all com-
bine to impact the School
Grade.
The Grade is based
on the total points, ade-
quate progress and per-
centage of students
tested. Letter grades and
point values follow:
A =5,25 points or more; B=
495 to 524; C= 435 to 494;
D=395 to 434; and F=less
than 395.
District School
Grades and points earned
follow: Jefferson Elemen-
tary School, grade of C
with 469 points.
Jefferson County
Middle/High School,
grade of F, with 339
points.
Care Charter School
of Excellence was not
graded, as the State does
not grade schools in-their
first year of existence.
However, DOE reported
the school earned 315
points, which would
equal a grade of F, if the
school were graded, and
.earned the lowest num-
ber of .points of the
schools in the District.
Commenting about
the School Grades Thurs-
day morning, Superin-
tendent Bill Brumfield

Crash


Cont. From Page 1

Cont. From Page 1


Monticello News Photo By Emerald Greene, June 20, 2009
Bystanders carried the driver away from his wrecked car to an ambulance
Saturday,.June 20, 2009 at the Watermelon Festival. Four people were injured
when a car crashed into two vehicles, including a parked ambulance.


SAfter the collision,
Woody's vehicle contin-
ued traveling forward
and struck the rear of a
properly parked 1994
Chevrolet SUV on the
west side of the roadway
and the collision caused
the SUV to overturn onto
its roof, striking pedes-
trian, Susan Simmons,
57, of Las Vegas NV and
ejecting the right front
seat passenger, Ruth G.
Dibiase, 84, of
Monticello.
In the process of


overturning, the SUV
struck the rear of a prop-
erly parked 2007 Suzuki
motorcycle.
Woody, the driver,
received minor injuries
and four-year-old pas-
senger, Je'Mika McCray
was seriously injured.
Both were transported to
Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital (TMH).
Simmons (pedestrian)
was seriously injured
and transported to TMH
for treatment. Dibiase
(ejected passenger), also


sustained serious
injuries and was trans-
ported to TMH.
Woody's vehicle sus-
tained $12,000 in dam-
ages, and the ambulance
sustained $10,000 in dam-
ages. The RAV 4 received
$500 in damages; the
SUV sustained $8,000
damage and the motorcy-
cle, $2,500 damage.
.FHP reported that
the crash was not alco-
hol-related and charges
are pending further
investigation.


maro, Inc., is one of two
landowners in the Lloyd
area (the other is Rick
Baker), who stood to
gain financially from
the sales of their proper-
ties to the developer.
Those potential land
deals fell through when
county officials denied
the racetrack applica-
tion, giving rise to the
threatened litigation
under the Bert Harris
Act, adopted by the
Florida Legislature in
1995.
Simply put, the Bert
Harris Act affords prop-
erty owners a, way to
recoup monetary com-
pensation for claimed
damages, if they can
prove that a local gov-
ernment's action has
caused their property to
lose fair market value.
"Responding to a set-
tlement offer from the
plaintiffs in the hope of
avoiding costly litiga-
tion, the County
Commission on May 21
agreed to rehear the
racetrack application,
setting the stage for
what was expected to
prove a controversial
meeting on June 25.
That hearing, however,
was contingent on the
developer's willingness
to pursue the project.
Wrote Hunter in the
June 19 email: "As my
May 13h letter indicated,
the proposed course of
resolution necessitated
a willingness by
Equestrian Hold-


ings/ELH-Jefferson (the
original applicant and
pari-mutuel holder) to
enter into.a new agree-
ment with my client on
acquisition of the prop-
erty and in so doing
express a willingness to
renew their efforts for
approval of the pro-
.posed Jefferson County
facility. Unfortunately,
Equestrian Holdings
and my client have not
reached agreement to
proceed with the facility
in this location; accord-
ingly, the settlement res-
olution proposed is not
currently feasible and is
therefore withdrawn
due to circumstances
beyond my client's con-
trol."
Hunter goes on to
remind county officials
that his client has not
yet formally filed a law-
suit against the county
under the Bert Harris
Act and that the latter
remains open to.dis-
cussing other settlement
options that could avoid
formal litigation and the
associated costs to each
side.
"We remain willing
to explore possible reso-
lutions, including that
outlined in my May 13h
letter, the latter of
course being infeasible
.urider the time con-
straints of a June 25th
hearing date," Hunter
wrote.
Continues the May
13th letter in part:' "As
you are aware, the


Harris Act provides a
menu of options to
resolve claims thereun-
der. One such method is
through the issuance of
'a development order, a
variance, special excep-
tion, or other ordinary
relief'. Based on the dis-
cussion at the May 4,
2009 County
Commission meeting,
Jamaro believes that a
reasonable resolution of
the Harris Act claim
would be the county's
issuance of a develop-
ment order approving
the Jefferson Down proj-
ect. Such a decision by
the county would be
favorable to all con-
cerned by allowing the
expense of litigation
and claimed damages to
be avoided through
approval of a project
*which brings needed
jobs, economic develop-
ment and tax revenues
to Jefferson County"
Bottom line, the
plaintiffs offered to drop
their Harris Act claims,
provided the commis-
sion approved the proj-
ect, based on its merits.
But if the outcome of
the hearing remained a
rejection of the project,
"then our clients ...
would retain the right to
proceed with any and all
claims against the coun-
ty," the May 13~ letter
concludes.
It appears that the
ball is now squarely in
the commissioners'
court.

Baa baa blue sheep, have you any wool? Quite a
bit actually! The shearer came for his annual visit
and now the fleece is rolled and awaiting spinning,
weaving, and dyeing with indigo, or roses, or cedar.
Alice Cappa, weaver of woolly fleece, cotton,
silk, linen, and bamboo yarns too, creates hand
weavings in natural fibers. With wools, she spins
nubby yarns on the wheel, steams natural dyes in a
big pot on the fire, and with an assortment of yarns,
trims, ribbons, and beads, weaves them into a uni-
fied whole.
Various activities are presented for groups to
see, touch, and try for themselves. Developing a tra-
ditional craft is a stimulating experience for chil-
dren who have no inkling of what fiber arts involve.
A true "Dyed 'N Wool" happening, this includes
feeding the sheep, interaction with the loom, spin-
ning wheel, and creating individual projects.
One project is dyeing with nature's colors roses;
marigolds, and pecan hulls. "I did have blue sheep
once. They were to visit another farm and to ID
them; I brushed their foreheads with a touch of indi-
go dye. They rubbed it all over themselves."
Available projects for birthdays, camps, class-
room presentations, and field trips can be seen at
www.acappa.com. Check "Dyed 'N Wool" and
"Calendar" for groups forming, available on 6/23,

The Atlantic Coast
Line Railway was one of
the major means of trans-
portation for the eastern
coast for many years. Its
lines ran to every major
city throughout the east-
ern United States.
However, it wasn't
until 1902 that the Atlantic
Coast Line System came
into possession of rail-
roads located in the US
South, including those
running throughout
Florida. The US South
railroad system was
known as the Plant Sys-
tem, named, after its
owner, Henry B. Plant.
The original line of the
system was the Savannah,
Florida, and Western Rail-
way which ran across the
Southern part of Georgia.
A short history of the
Plant System Railroads
shows that in December
1875, the railway system in.
Savannah known as the
"Junction Branch"
opened, connecting the
line to the Charleston and
Savannah Railroad. The
company eventually went
bankrupt on :New Year's
Day 1877 and this led to
Henry B. Plant purchas-
ing the system Nov. 4,1879.
It was reorganized as
the Savannah, Florida and
Western Railway on Dec.
9. The Plant Investment.
Company was formed
three "years later to buy
other railroads and con-
tinue expanding the sys-
tem.
Plant's acquisition ex-
tended when he bought
the Savannah and
Charleston Railroad in
1880, renaming it as the
Charleston and Savannah
Railway In 1882, the Chat-
tahoochee Branch opened
from Climax, GA on the
main line southwest to the
Florida state line. Plant or-
ganized the Live Oak and
Rowland's Bluff Railroad
as well as the Live Oak,
Tampa and Charlotte Har-
bor Railroad in 1881 to
continue the Florida
Branch south from Live
Oak. He tried buying the
Florida Southern Railway
to continue this line, but
was unsuccessful. On May
4,. 1883 he bought 3/5. of
the stock of the South
Florida Railroad.
In 1881, the Florida
legislature granted a new
charter for a'railroad to be
built from Monticello to
the Georgia border. Origi-
nally another line from
Tallahassee to
Thomasville, GA was sup-
posed to have been con-
structed, but the
Tallahassee Branch was
never built.
The subscription
books for the new railroad
were opened in June 1881,

however, by that time; pro-
moters had insisted that
the line be built to Quit-
man instead off
Thomasville. By the early
months of 1882, the rail-
road was still being dis-
cussed. By now the
Georgia station had now
been changed to Dixie in-
stead of Quitman. In Octo-
ber, the Monticello
Constitution argued that
the enterprise was not
dead, but action had yet to
be taken.
In 1884, ER. Fildes,
owner of the Monticello
Constitution began calling
for support for a "new
railroad scheme". A nar-
row gauge line would be
built from Macon to Quit-
man and from there
'through Monticello to the
Wacissa River. Once at the
Wacissa, the line would
then connect with water
transportation to the Gulf
of Mexico. The line Fildes
had dreamed of would
never materialize.
After years of rumors
and high enthusiasm by
Fildes as well as other ad-
vocates, efforts began in
early 1886 to obtain an op-
erational line from Monti-
cello to Georgia. A small
delegation -of local citi-
zens-ER. Fildes, J.T.
Budd, J.C. Turner, C.T.
Carroll, H. Bernhard, and
J.H. Perkins went to Sa-
vannah to discuss the pos-
sibility of having a line of
the Savannah, Florida,
and Western built from


Monticello. into Georgia.
They spoke with general
manager, H.S. Haines who
was agreeable to a Florida
connection, but he said
that he would have to dis-
cuss the situation with
the Board of Directors.
He suggested to the men
that a written proposal be
submitted.
Fildes recorded the
sessions with Haines in
his reports. "Monticello
has failed so many times
to secure a railroad that
some citizens are loath to
believe that the enter-
prise will ever be success-

ful, and a few ridicule the
effort." Fildes had urged
the construction of rail-
way for the last 25 years,
knowing that it was a
business necessity. .
Two weeks after
meeting with Haines,
Fildes wrote that the pro-
posed connection with the
Georgia railroad would
"give to land and real es-
tate in country and town
an extra ordinary boom
in price. In February he
noted that a man who
owned 200 acres in Jeffer-
son County was able to
contribute $200 to build-
ing a railroad and when it
was completed, the man
would see his 200 acres
double in price.
In July, people had
begun asking what had
happened with the rail-
road negotiations. Fildes
replied that it would be de-
cided within the next two
months that Monticello
was to have a railway
northward. Fildes as-
sured citizens that by fall,
business would be boom-
ing. Vacant stores would
be occupied, and real es-
tate business would in-
crease.
Finally, a meeting be-
tween the Monticello peo-
ple and the Savannah,
Florida and Western Rail-
road to discuss the partic-
ulars of the agreement
for a Monticello line was


held on September 21.
Haines wanted to
build to Quitman or
Dixie, but the people of
Quitman were not inter-
ested in a line leading to,
Monticello and Monti-
cello was unwilling to
build to Dixie. Everyone
soon agreed that
Thomasville would be the
only logical choice, but
the people of Monticello
were shocked when
Haines announced that
their share of construc-
'tion would cost about
$50,000.
"It was less than
eight miles from Monti-
cello to the Geogia line
and several engineers had
suggested that the grad-
ing was not a difficult un-
dertaking. It would not
exceed $1,000 per mile and
crossties would add only
$450 to that. The Jefferson
County people were will-
ing to pledge $2,000 per
mile and were certain the
Thomas County citizens
would do the same,"
writes Historian Jerrell
Shofner on the subject.
Haines was willing to
make a more acceptable
offer. His company would
build the road if the peo-
ple of Monticello would
provide the rights-of-way
and contribute the $18,000
which they had already
managed to raise.
Plans were soon un-


derway. 'Floridians are
said : to have become
"pleased" when the Sa-
vannah, Florida, and
Western Railroad em-
ployed EB. Papy, formerly
of the Florida Railway
and Navigation Company
to oversee the operation.
At the same time, other
plans were underway to
construct an Alabama,
line from Columbus to Al-
bany.
When the two lines
were completed, Monti-
cello would be on the most
direct route from the Mid-
west to Florida. Comple-
Stion of the Monticello and
Thomasville road was ex-
pected by August, after
which Monticello was
said to expect a large
boost in its economy A
slight delay ensued due to
bridge construction over
Pine Creek, but this did
little to lower the county's
enthusiasm. The last
pieces of the rails were
laid down on September
29, and Papy went to Mon-
ticello shortly after to or-
ganize the railroad
business at that depot.:
Now that it was con-
nected with the largest
railway system on the east
coast, Monticello's eco-
nomic horizons continued
to expand along with the
Plant System.
By 1892, Plant had fi-
.nally managed to buy the
Florida Southern Railway
under foreclosure and re-
organized it as the Florida
Southern Railroad. The
system stretched from
Gainesville south to
Punta Gorda,
After Plant's death in
1899, the Plant System
was taken over by the At-
lantic Coast Line Railroad
in 1902 and came under
the presidency of R.G.
Erwin of New York. Two
years previous, the com-
pany was renamed the At-
lantic Coast Line Railroad
Company of Virginia, and
in the same\year, several
other companies were
merged along with it and
the name Virginia was
eventually dropped from
the title.,
The Atlantic Coast
Line (ACL) Railway Sys-
tem continued to extend
its lines through the next
few decades. After pur-
chasing, the entire Plant
System, the ACL went to
buy the extensive
Louisville and Nashville
Railroad system on No-
vember 1, 1902, but kept
the operations separate.
SA small railroad
branch from Climax, 'GA
to Amsterdam opened in
1903. The ACL bought the
Conway Coast and West-
ern Railroad in 1912, the
Sanford and Everglades
Railroad in 1913, the
Florida Central Railroad
in 1915, and the Rocking-
ham Railroad and the Vir-
ginia and Carolina
Southern Railroad in
1922.
The company would
continue to buy railway
systems throughout the
entire east coast. On July
1, 1967, the ACL merged
with the Seaboard Air
Line Railroad, which hap-
pened to be the company's
long time rival and
formed the Seaboard
Coast Line Railroad.
On July 1, 1986, the
Seaboard System Railroad
was renamed CSX Trans-
portation. On August 31,
1987 the Chesapeake and
Ohio Railway merged into
CSX.
CSX railroads of Jef-
ferson County still exist
and are still used by major
industries.

Rule


#10.


Don't

Preach.
One of the greatest
deterrents to drug
use is simply talking
with your kids. But
don't preach or
you'll lose them. If a
conversation lasts
more than five min-
utes, you're preach-
ing. Better to have
lots of five- minute
conversations. Kids
have short attention
spans and shorter
memories. To learn
more about how to
talk with your kids
about drugs, call for
a free parent's hand-
book.

SpARklER SAFETy

Tips FOR July 4


FRAN HUNT
Monticello News
Staff Writer
The Fourth of July is
rapidly approaching, and
while countless residents'
will use state-approved
sparklers to brighten
their celebrations, it is
important for them to put
safety first while having
fun.
Florida State law
defines approved
sparklers as:
Wire or wood
sparklers of not more
than 100 grams of mix-
ture per item;
Other sparkling
items that are non-explo-
sive and non-aerial and
Contain 75 grams or less
of chemical compound
per tube or a total of 100
grams, or less for multi-
ple tubes; ,
Snakes and glow-
worms;,
Trick noise makers
including paper stream-
ers, party poppers, string
poppers, snappers and
drop pops, each consist-
ing of .25 grams or less of.
chemical composition;
Any kind of fire-
works allowed to be sold
at wholesale.
SExperts recommend


consumers strictly fol-
low all safety warnings
and instructions that
appear on sparkler pack-
aging when using any
sparkler product.
Consumers should
remember these key
rules:
Children should not
light or handle sparklers.
Always keeps a
hose and a bucket of
water nearby in case of
emergencies.
Use sparklers out-
doors, only in clear
areas, away from houses,
buildings and dry grass.
As with any pur-
chase, check the credibil-
ity of the distributor to
niake sure their
sparklers are reliable',
legal and that they come
from a licensed source.
Animals are often
frightened by the sounds
of sparklers. To protect
them, keep them indoors,
away from the loud
noise, and secure them.
Remember, not all
sparklers are the same.
Be sure to purchase
products that are manu-
factured by a trusted,'
established company
that puts consumer safe-
ty first.

FRAN HUNT
Monticello News
Staff Writer
Twenty-six mem-
bers of the Florida
Competition Paddlers
Association manned 21
vessels including
canoes and.kayaks and
participated in the
annual Wacissa River
Race Sunday, June 7.
The race drew
enthusiasts from
Florida residents of
Jefferson County,
Tallahassee, Key Largo,
St. Petersburg, Floral
City, Niceville,
Auburndale, Naples,
Archer, Tampa,
Gainesville, Plant City,
Sopchoppy, and
Atlanta, GA.
The race even gar-
nered the attention of a
national competitor.


"There are different
stages. You can take it
very leisurely, or you
can be very competi-
tive. That's what I like
about it," said Lee
Short, the 2008 National
Kayak Champion.
Competitors had
their choice of running
the short course of six
miles or the long
course, estimated at
about 11 miles.
Those running the
short course were: John
Brooks, 1:17:58; Lindsay
and Scott Benton,
1:46:35; and Jane
McPherson and John
Jefferson, 2:14:20.
Opting to partici-
pate in the long course
were: Jack Toth,
1:21:54; Ken Prosen,
1:35:03; John Edwards,
1:35:31; Lee Short,


1:39:32; Anke Toth,
1:39:45; LaVerne and
Kirk Young, 1:40:19;
Brint Adams, 1:40:44;
Deborah Gedeon and
Larry Frederick with
1:42:19.
Craig Fenner,
1:42:24; Bill Beavers,
1:47:18; Fred
Southwick, 1:53:20;
Nathan Stewart,
1:55:54; Erick Touvila,
1:56:28; John Brooks,
1:58:20; George Blakely
and Glennis Williams,
1:59:20; David and
Amelia Morse, 2:00:39;
Bruce Touvila, 2:03:20:
and Wallace Randell
and :Dana Stetson, 2:
03:37.
The race has been
held in Wacissa since
1972. "I helped organize
it about in 1976 in an
effort to try to help


standardize some of
the racing that was
being done throughout
the state of Florida,"
said race organizer
George Blakely.
He added that when
it first began, it was
tied in with the
Watermelon Festival
due to the race being
held at the same time of
the year, even though it
was not an official part
of Festival activities.
"There used to be hun-
dreds who participated,
but we decided to make
it basically a club
thing, which cut it
down to an average of
what we had this year,"
he said.
Blakely coordinat-
ed the race with cater-
ing help from Jack and
Anke Toth.


Safety Tips For July 4, Busiest Boating Holiday


FRAN HUNT
Monticello News
Staff Writer
July 4 is the busiest
boating holiday and
waterways will be
crowded with boaters.
The Boat U.S.
Foundation for Boating
Safety and Clean Water
notes that making a few
extra preparations
ahead of time will go a
long way towards
increasing your fami-
ly's and friend's safety
and fun on the water.
The Foundation's

on trip planning and
preparation, boating
equipment, emergency
preparation, naviga-

of boating accident is a
collision with another
vessel.
Keep your speed
down.
Post an extra look-
out, and ensure all your
navigation lights work.
A spotlight is a
must, and ensures all
safety gear is readily
available and life jack-
ets are worn.
Be extra vigilant
about not running over
anchor lines in crowded
fireworks viewing
areas,..and don't take
shortcuts in the dark.
Wear life jackets.
In 87 percent of fatal
accidents, boaters-were
not wearing a life jack-
et. Accidents can hap-
pen very quickly, some-
times leaving no time to
don a life jacket.
*Don't overload
your boat: 'Resist the
.urge to invite more
friends, or family to the
fireworks show,. than
what your boat was
designed to carry.
Heavily loaded
small boats, and those
with little freeboard
such as bass boats, are
more susceptible to
swamping from weath-
er or wake action asso-
ciated with heavy July
4th boating traffic.
*A full day in the
sun will increase alco-
hol's effects on the body,
so it's better to wait
until you're safely back
at the dock or home
before breaking out the
libations.
Also bring lots of
water, a VHF radio, and
check the weather
reports to avoid storms.

Know how to get
back in the boat: A fall
overboard can turn
into a life-threatening
situation pretty quick-
ly, especially for small
boats without built-in
boarding ladders.
Never run the
engine when swimmers
are in the water: Raft-
ups, or groups of boats
tied together in a pro-
tected anchorage, are a
great way to spend the
holiday with fellow
boating friends.
But you should
never run an engine. or
a generator for that
matter, with swimmers
in the water near
exhaust ports or
props.
Even though the
boat's transmission
may not be in gear, pro-
pellers can still rotate,
and odorless, colorless
carbon monoxide can
quickly overcome
swimmers.
