A letter from FDOT design engineer John
Golden to the Jefferson County Commission on
Sept. 16 informs officials here that the state agency
has retained the engineering services of Fisher &
Arnold Inc. of Chipley, FL, to design the road im-
provement project.
The planned improvements includethe addi-
tion of a westbound acceleration Inne, extension of
the existing eastbound and west bound right turn
lanes and minor drainage improvement work. The
FDOT estimates the project's construction cost wm
be $470,000. It expects to let out the project by Jan-
uary 2011, and to have the roadwork completed
some 85 days later.

Florida's unemploy-
bent rate took a slight
turn for the worse in
september, a trend re-
flected in the jobless
rates for Jefferson and
Madison counties.
Figures released by


the Florida Agency for
Workforce Innovation
(AWI)onFridayOct.16,
show that the state's sea-
sondlly adjusted unem-
ployment rate for
Septemberwas11.0per-
cent, up a 0.2 percentage
point from the revised
rate of 10.8 percent for
August.


The 11.0 percent job-
less rate is 1.2 percentage
points higher than the
national rate of 9.8 per-
cent and 4.3 percentage
points higher than
Florida'sSeptember2008
rate. The last time that
Florida experienced an
11.0 percent unemploy-
ment rate was in October


1975.
The 11.0 percent rate
translates 1,012.000job-
less persons out of a
workforce of 9,193,000.
State officials, how-
even continue to point
out the silver lining.

To Disagree
ter how many times you

the Theory of Evolution
had passed the scientific
scrutiny, it would be
called the Law of
Evolution, yet remains a
theory, despite about 150
years of feverish
attempts by scientists to
prove its veracitY
I would also like to
point out to Mr. Or Mrs.
Stinger that there is no
germ theory of disease.
It is a proven scientific
fact. Thus it is a law! My
suggestion to Stinger's
concerns regarding con-
tradicting everything, is
todust focus on one issue
at a time. This way you
can step by step offer
your argument and
eventually rebuff it all.
One last remark to

ing criticism, it's just
the polite thing to do.

quote "Lawrence Berger
(name spelled wrong) so
much wrong and so little
space to contradict
everything you stated.
- So what else is science
wrong about, the germ
theory of disease,
Newton's Laws of
Physics perhaps?" .
Since the stinger
was not specific, I can
only conclude they were
referring to my state-
ment that "the Theory of
Evolution" had for all
intents and purposes
been disproved by real
science.
When I say real sci-
ence I am referring to
anything fitting the cri-
teria of observability
and evidence that con-
clusively generates the
same result, without
exception. This essen-
tially is what separates a
theory from a "law."

Haeckel's contemporaries were
not, and repeatedly criticized and
chastised him.
Charges of fraud followed him
throughout his lifetime. Even more
egregious, these forgeries were known
to the scientific community for over a
century. Stephen Jay Gould finally
had the guts to admit it before he died.
But he and many other Darwinists
were silent for decades.
Committing fraud in many seg-
ments of society(s) can land you in
jail. If Darwin and Gould were sta
alive, they could (or should) be more

Dear Editor:
Just the other day I
was speaking with a
friend named Kate. Kate
was respectfully advis-
ing me that sihe intended
to write a Letter to the
Editor outlining her dis-
agreement with what I
had recently written in a.
Letter to the Editor.
Kate also informed
me of a "stinger" about
me. To be honest, I was
unaware what a stinger
was. My first thought
was that we were under
attack by wasps! Kate
explained that it was
short quotes written in
the Monticello News.
Now Kate and I have
recently engaged in a
friendly debate regard-
ing the "Theory of
Evolution." She believes
in it, and I do not. We
both agreed these are
very turbulent times for
our country. We talked
about some of the very
emotional, and angry
rhetoric going back and
forth over the direction
this country is headed.
In a healthy
Democracy you simply
present all the facts of
each argument and
allow the majority to
decide at the polling
booth. What troubles
me most is that we are
not a healthy
Democracy, and unfortu-
nately the debate will
not be decided, as it
be. At any rate
and I agreed to dis-
agree, and to continue.
our dialogue in the
future.
When I returned
home that. evening, I


Dear Editor,
We know from his major work,
"The Origin of Species", that Charles
Darwin was a racist sexist and vice-
versa. One thing he was not was an
embryologist.
So he outsourced, perhaps the
most critical research to shore up his
theory of evolution, to the German
biologist Ernest Haeckel.
Haeckel, in attempting to show
that various classes of vertebrate
embryos were identical in their earli-

tute a different situa-
tion, he said.
Joyner wondered
suddenly why the com-
mission was even "danc-
ing around the tree".
"There's the chief
right there,' Joyner
said, pointing at
Matthews.
Matthews appeared
a tad confused by the
seeming quick turn-
around, as he had
argued the same case
the previous meeting
and Joyner specifically
had argued that the posi-
tion of chief needed to
be advertised. This time
around, however, no one
mentioned advertising
the liosition.
BB Brown, a citizen
who regularly attends
commission meeting,
offered that if he was
the fire chief and the
commission talked of
putting an oversight
committee over him, "I
would quit," Brown
said.
Following which
comment, Joyner and
Monroe reiterated their
strong opposition to the
idea of any oversight
committee monitoring a
county department.
Seeing which way
the wind was blowing,
Boyd graciously conced-
. ed Bailar's and the two
commissioners' points.
He agreed that the coor-
dinator rightfully con-
stituted the commis-
sion's oversight commit-
tee and he withdrew his
proposed compromise.
Schleicher then
nicely capped the dis-
cussion by pointing out
that commissioners had
obviously reached a
decision on the issue
and should move on to
the next agenda item. He
and Matthews still had a .
few details to work out
relative to the proposal,
Schleicher said. But
these were details that
were operational in
nature and really didn't
concern the commis-
sion. He further pointed
out that Matthews' pro-
posal allowed for the
commission to revisit
the issue, if the arrange-
ment didn't prove work-
able,
It remained only for
Clerk of Court Kirk
Reams to make a final
point. That point was
that the salary of Fire
Rescue chief needed to
be amplified sufficiently
so that it wasn't neces-
sary for Matthews to
have to work at an

sated for his time.
Reams' suggestion was
left hanging.


critical situation arise,
if the leadership was to
be shared?
"The fire chief
should be the boss," was
a point that
Commissioner Danny
Monroe hammered on.
Matthews' attempt-
ed explanations that he
would be the boss when
it came to directives
coming from the com-
mission but that deci-
sions pertaining to the
department's operations
and structure would be
reached collectively and
by consensus seemed to
perplexed commission-
ers further. They went
so far as to name
Matthews interim chief
at the Oct..1meeting, but
they left hanging
whether they would
accept his proposal,
amend it, or advertise
for a new Fire Rescue
director.
On Thursday
evening, Oct. 1, County
Coordinator Roy
Schleicher reinitiated
the discussion.
Schleicher posed to com-
missioners that they
had three choices. They
could accept Matthews'
proposal as presented;
they could choose
Commissioner Hines
Boyd's modified version,
which called for the
appointment of an over-
sight committee to mon-
itor the department; or
they could advertise for
a new Fire Rescue chief
"You're on he spot
now," Schleicher said,
adding that commission-
ers ivere well aware of
Matthews' proven capa-
bilities and that the lat-
ter was extremely com-
mitted to his proposal.
Boyd expanded on
his proposal, explaining
that it represented a
compromise to bridge
the gap between hiring a
new chief and the com-
mission's expressed con-
cerns about the per-
ceived lack of leader-
ship under Matthews'
proposal. Boyd conceded
that frankly, having the
workers be their own
managers made him
"uneasy".
"This committee
would provide oversight
and accountability,''
Boyd said. "This is a
way to keep control
without being overbear-
ing."
Monroe made no
bones about his strong
aversion to what he
apparently considered a
preposterous idea.
-
managing a depart-
ment," Monroe said.
"The chief should be the


chief."
What next, he asked,
was the board to appoint
oversight committees to
oversee the county's
other operations? That
was the reason for the
County Commission, he
said. If a problem exist-
ed, let the -commission
resolve it.
"I just don't agree
with a committee over-
seeing a department,"
Monroe repeated,
Boyd reiterated his
main objection to
Matthews' proposal,
that objection being that
the county would run a
risk. ,
"If things spin out of
control, it falls on our
shoulder," Boyd said,
reminding the board
that with the exception
of the Road Department,
Fire Rescue had the sec-
ond highest budget that
was under the commis-
sion's control. .
Resident Dick Bailar
begged to interject a
point "with all due
respect". He pointed out
that the county had no
need of an oversight
committee, as it had the
county coordinator.
That was the purpose of
the coordinator posi-
tion, which the commis-
sion had created four
years earlier precisely to
oversee the departments
and ensure efficiency
and accountability, he
said.
Commissioner Felix
"Skeet" Joyner "waded"
next into the issue, pro-
ceeding to ask Matthews
a series of questions.
Who would be the
chief? Joyner asked,
"I would be the chief
administrat iv el y, "
Matthews said. "The
other guys would help
me with the operational
side of the department.
But ultimately, the
responsibility is mine."
Who would disci-
pline or terminate one of
the sectional leaders if
such needed doing?
Joyner asked.
"I would do it,"
Matthews said,
"Good, good,"
Joyner rejoined, adding
that Matthews so far
was supplying all the
correct answers.
In the event that he
was called back to the
once to perform some
administrative function
after hours, would he
charge the county over-
time? Joyner asked.
1-le would charge the
county zero if it were an

and Franklin counties at
7.1 percent each; and
Holmes, Jackson,
Lafayette, Leon,
Okaloosa and Wakulla
counties at 7.2 percent
each.
Hendry County con-
tinued to have the state's
highest unemployment
rate in September at 16.8
percent, followed by
Flagler County at 16.2
percent; St. Lucie
County at 15.3 percent;
Indian River County at
15.2 percent; and Lee
County at 13.9 percent.
The AWI notes that
many of the counties
with lowest unemploy-
ment rates have relative-
ly high proportions of
government workers.
And those with the high-
est unemployment rates .
have either seasonal
declines in agriculture
or continued weakness
in construction and
manufacturing.
Jefferson County
ranked 53 out of
Florida's 67 counties in
terms of its unemploy-
ment rate, and Madison
County ranked 24, with
Hendry County at No. 1
and Liberty at No. 67.
The AWI reports
that all metro areas in
the state lost jobs in
September. Jefferson
County is Dart of the
Tal 1 abassee
Metropolitan Statistic
Area (MSA), one of 23
such areas across the
state. The Tallassee
MSA had the third low-
est rate of job decline in
the state during
September That rate
was 7.5 percent.
The Ft. Walton
Beach-Crestview-Destin
M.SA and- Gainesville
M:SA had the lowest rate
of Job decline at 7.2 per.

Coast MSA had the high-
est job decline at 16.2
percent,


coming slowly, but it's
coming," AWI Director
Cynthia R. Lorenzo is
quoted saying.-"The lat-
est unemployment fig-
ures confirm that the
economic downturn
continues to impact a
significant number of
Floridians and business-
es. However, a reduction
in employers announc-
ing closings or large-
scale layoffs is a positive
sign of Florida's grow-
ing economic stability."
One indication that
the state's economy is
beginning to stabilize,
according to the AWI, is
that the reduced number
of Worker Adjustment
and Retraining
Notification Act
(WARN) notices that the
agency is receiving. The
AWI reportedly received
seven WARN notices in
September, compared
with a peak of 36 notices
in March. It reportedly
received zero notices for
the week of Oct. 5-9. *
"The last time that
the agency experienced
a week with no notices
was a year ago the week
of Sept.29-Oct.3,2008,"
states the AWIrelease.
The state's total
nonagricultural work-
force in September was
7,333,800, representing a
jobioss of 360,400, or -4.7
percent compared to
September 2008.
"This is steeper than
the 11ational rate of
decline for September,
which was -4.2 percent
over the year," states the
AW1 release. ."The
September 2009 job loss
continued the trend of
annual declines that
began in August 2007.
Industries losing the
most jobs are trade,
transportation and utili-
ties; professional and
business services; and
construction."
The three industries

reportedly account for
more than two-thirds of
the job losses in the
state, with healthcare
remaining the state's
only growth sector for
most of 2009.
In Jefferson County,
the seasonally unadjust-
ed jobless rate .was 8.5
percent in September,
compared with its rate
of 8.2 percent in August
and 5.4 percent in
September 2008.
The 8.5 percent
translates into 586 job-
less persons out of a
labor force of 6,909 in
September, compared
with 562 jobless persons
out of a workforce of
.6,837 in August and-375
jobless persons out of a
workforce of 7,008 in
September 2008.
In Madison County,
the seasonally unadjust-
ed unemployment rate
for September was 11.7
percent, compared with
11.4 percent in August
and 7.7 percent in
September 2008.
The 11.7 percent
translates into 817 job-
less persons out of a
workforce of 6,983, com-
pared with 814 Jobless
persons out of a- work-
force of 7,125 in August,
and 546 jobless persons
out of a workforce of
7,089 in September 2008.
Seasonally unad-
Justed means that the
numbers have not been
purged of seasonal and
other factors that can
skew the results. The
statistics also do not
reflect individuals who
have simply given up or
ceased looking for work
for whatever reason.
Liberty County con-
tinued to have the state's
lowest unemployment
rate in September at 5.3
percent, followed by
Walton County at 6.8
percent; Monroe County

in beef that is more

Why natural graz-

Much of this richness

of natural grazing, as
large herbivores are

Almost all natural-

agement ecological bal-
ance is restored.
Safeguarding nature
areas, connecting these
areas wherever possi-
ble and letting large
grazers return are logi-
cal measures to achieve
a sustainable develop-
ment of complete
ecosystems.
Managed grazing is
arguably the only natu-
ral process by which
grasslands can be
"improved" on a sus-
tainable basis.
Unmanaged grazing, or
complete exclusion
from grazing, will inex-
orably (whether it be
quickly or slowly) lead
to decertification in all
but the high rainfall
areas.
To achieve healthy
grasslands in medium
to low rainfall areas,
stod? needs to be
bunched into large
mobs and moved fre-
quently. Grazing cells
provide a convenient
tool for stock control. In
extensive areas with
few fences, stock can be
herded, as is now the
practice on many large
tracts of public land in
the United States and
Canada.
Howevet: there is
far more to grazing
management than put-
ting stock together and
manipulating the graze
and rest periods. High
density short duration
grazing per se, can also
lead to resource degra.
dation in the absence of
ecologicitT'giddellines.
When all criteria are
met. grazing acts as a
rejuvenating process.

You might not see it on your calendar, but Oct. 18
- 24 is National Save for Retirement Week. This
event, endorsed by Congress, is designed to promote
the benefits of saving for retirement and to encourage
workers to take full advantage of their employer-spon-
sored retirement plans so you may want to use this
week as a starting point to do just that.

cans report that thetotal value of their household's say-
ings arid investifidixts, excluding the value of their
prunary home and any defined benefit plans, is less
than $25,000, according to the 2009 Retirement Con-
fidence Survey, sponsored by the Employee Benefit Re-
search Institute.
Also, the decline in popularity of these defined
benefit plans the traditional pension plans that
make payments based primarily on years of service -
is one reason that saving for retirement has become
such a major issue. From 1986 to 2008, participation in
defined benefit plans among full-time workers in pri-
vate industry declined from 76 percent to 24 percent,
according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In many.
cases, these defined benefit pkins have been replaced by
defined contribution plans, such as 401(k) plans -
which means that much of the responsibility of ade-
quately funding retirement has shifted from the em.
player to the individual.
Given these factors, it's clear that you must be
proactive in building resources to achieve the retire-
ment lifestyle you've envisioned. So, consider taking
the following steps:
* Contribute to your 401(k) or other employer-spon-
sored platt. If possible, try to put in as much as you can
afford to your 401(k) or other tax-advantaged, em.
played oed pb,-m ma )ll
available investments in a way that reflects your risk
tolerance and time horizon. And as your income in-
creases, try to increase your 401() contributions. At
a minimum, put in enough to earn your employer's
match, if one is offered. Due to the prolonged eco-
nomic slump, some employers have cut back or elim-
inated their 401(k) matching contributions, but if one
is offered, take advantage of it.
* Open an IRA. Even if you contribute to a 401(k), you
are probably still eligible to open an IRA. A tradi-
tional IRA can grow on a tax-deferred basis, and a
Roth IRA grows tax-free, provided you've had your
account for at least five years and don't begin taina' g
withdrawals until you're 59-1/2. Plus, you can usually
find that an IRA provides more investment options
that a 401(k) plan.
Rebalance your investment portfolio regularly. During
the long bear market, many new retirees faced difft-
culties when.they were forced to tap into investment
portfolios whose value had dropped significantly. You
can help avoid this problem by periodically reviewing
and rebalancing your investments. So for example, if
you know you're going to retire within the next five
years, you may want to consider shifting some of your
assets into shorter-term investments that may not be
as susceptible to market volatility. You can speak with
a financial advisor, who can help you review your spe-
cific situation.
By making the right moves, you can turn every week
into a "Save for Retirement" week. And you'll proba-
bly be glad you did, once your actual retirement week
arrives.

October is Adopt a
Shelter Dog Month and
the Jefferson County
Humane Society cur-
rently has seven
canines available for
adoption. They hope to
find them all homes in
the very near future so
they can again start tak-
ing in those animals
having to be turned
away at the present,
because of population
downsizing.
Responsible pet
ownership requires
more than simply
agreeing to take _an ani.
mal home. In addition,
the potential adopter
should be ready to make
a commitment that will
enhance the lives of
both the human and the
animal.
To view pets avail-
able at the shelter, go to
the Humane Society
web site at www.jchs.us
Pet owners who
train their dogs have
better relationships
with their pets and
fewer problems in the
home. "Most people
don't realize that train-
ing is not as difficult as
they think," Trainer
Joel Silverman states,
"Training should be fun
or both the pet owner
and the dog, and, in
fact, usually strength.
ens the bond between
them.'


..J,,,g.


mixed breed dogs are
less likely to possess
breed-specific heredi-
tary health and behav-
ioral problems.
If your dog is a
Labrador mix, she
could still have hip dys-
plasia, but it may be
less severe, than that of
a purebred, because the
breed is basically
"diluted." A Chow mix
may be less likely to
have aggression prob-
lems than a purebred
(though not all Chows
are aggressive).
While the mystery
of a mutt can be excit-
ing, it is important to
prepare yourself for a
few surprises along the
way. Whether you
decide to choose a mutt
or a purebred dog,
know there is no right
or wrong. No matter
what type of dog your
choose, your life will be
forever changed.

Shelters usually
have a wide selection of
dogs in all shapes, sizes
and personalities. Many
are mixed-breed dogs,
and mutts are great.
You could eiren find a
purebred dog. There is a
chance of finding a dog
that is already house-
broken, has other train-
ing; and most of all, you
can save a life.
Each mixed-breed
dog is unique. Even if
you find a similar dog,


no two are quite the
same. Though even
purebred littermates
are genetically unique.
a mixed-breed dog truly
stands alone. Your
mixed-breed dog will
hold a special place in
your heart because you
will never find another
quite the same.
Mixed-breed dogs do
not come with a list of
hereditary problems.
This is not to say your
mutt will be perfect, but

With the beginning
of flag football at the
Recreation Park this
year, came a new, cheer-
leading program for
young girls, ages 7-11,
who cheer on the boys
during all of the flag
football games,
Cheerleading Coach
Ashley Knecht relates
that the first-year pro-
gram has proven to be
such a success with 16
girls attending regular-
ly, that it will continue
in the coming years.
The girls meet on aver-
age, once per week to
practice and then they
attend and cheer at the
weekly games.
Knecht said the
girls wear team T-shirts
and shorts and next
year, they will have the
T-shirts and skirts.
They perform chants


and routines, however,
they do not utilize pom-
poms.
This is wonderful
for the girls," said
Itnecht. "This was one
of my bigger issues,
that the girls needed
something to do regu-
larly at the Rec Park
like the boys, other than
the girl's softball and
soccer, which was all
they have had in the
past."
The girls on the
cheerleading team
include; Jalecia
Williams, Hannah
Sprinkle, Sara
McElveen, Lauren
Mills, Keyanna Scott,
Mackenzie Wirick,
Amiah Byrd, Yu Nijha
Cooper, A'Syrra Shuler,
Megan Wainright,
Tristan Imbrunone,
Kaitlin Imbrunone,
Mariah Jones, Ashanti
Wilson. Taylor Knecht,

"In the first half we
were in the red zone three
times and failed to score.
Instead we fumbled the
ball and gave it back to
them.
"The entire game we
moved the ball at wn, and
just did not finish the
drives," he added. "Even
after they scored in the
fourth quarter, we
marched right down to
their 10-yard line, and did
not score. And that falls
back on my offense and
me.
"We have got to do

Information published on the Internet pro-
vides this summary of the history of Red
Rib on Week is an alcohol, tobacco
and other drug, and violence prevention
awareness campaign, observed annually in
October in the United States.
Red Ribbon Week began after the kidnap-

f rcteo ea so nmurdebofA eun
Enrique "Kiki" Camarena, in 1985. He had been
working undercover in Guadalajara, Mexico for
more than four years.
His efforts led to a tip that msulted in the
discovery of a multimillion-dollar narcotics
manufacturing operation in ChIhuahua,
Mexico.The successful eradication of this, and
other drug production operations, angered
leaders of several drug cartels who sought
revenge.
As a result, they murdered key informants,
and on Feb. 7, 1985, they kidnapped Agent
Camakena and his pilot Captain Alfredo
Zavala-Avelar, separately on the same day.
After DEA Agent Camarena and Captain
Zavala-Avelar were kidnapped, the DEA
launched a massive investigation. The agents
found local law enforcement uncooperative at
best DEA Administrator Jack Lawn and US
Attorney General Edwin Meese sought greater
support from Mexican officials including the
Mexican Attorney General, but to no avail.
Orders from US Customs Commissioner
William von Raab effectively closed the
US/Mexico border for days putting pressure on
the Mexican government to assist.
Soon, representatives of the Mexican
Federal Judicial Police (MFJP) presented a tip
to DEA Agents claiming that Agent Camarena
had been mistakenly kidnapped by a man and
his three sons.The MFJP informed the agents
that a raid of the man's ranch in Angostura
would take place the following morning and
InvRed them to come.
However, the MFJP raided the ranch before
DEA agents arrived. During the raid, they shot
abd killed five individuals. Not long after, a
passerby discovered the bodies of both Agent
Camarena and Captain Zavala-Avelar by the
side of the road not far from the ranch.
The DEA's investigation revealed that
Agent Camarena had been tortured extensive-
ly before he was murdered. Audiotapes of the
torture showed that medical doctors actually
kept Agent Camarena alive in order to contin-
ue the Interrogation. Evidence collected
revealed that both Agent Camarena and
Captain Zavala-Avelar were initially buried in
one location and then moved to the ranch
where they were found.
The dramatic events that followed Agent
Camarena's disappearance were chanicled in
national media here at home. They exposed
the dark world of drug trafficking including
how far.drug traffickers would go to maintain
power and control.
After hd and his pilot were found mur-
dered, citizens in his hometown of Calexico,
California donned red ribbons in his honor.The
red ribbon became their symbol for prevention
in order;to reduce the demand of Illegal drugs.
Congressman Duncan Hunter and teacher
David Dhillon launched "Camarena Clubs" Iri
California high schools and in 1986 club mem-
bers presented a proclamation to Nancy
Reagan.
The following year, parent teacher organi-
zations in California, IIIInois and Virginia wore
red ribbons during late October. In 1988, the
first National Red RIbbon Week was pro-
claimed by the US Congress and chaland by
former first lady Nancy Reagan.
Today, the Red Ribbon Celebration brings
millions of people together to raise awareness
regarding the need for alcohol, tobacco and
other drug and violence prevention, early Inter-
vention, and treatment services. It is the
largest, most visible prevention awareness
campaign observed annually in the United
States
The Enrique S. Camarna Foundation was
founded by his widow Mika, their son Enrique
Jr., and several DEA and Bolder Patrol Agents
gh)9 kag Agent C4tha[ega in order to honor
this American hem.
The National Family Partnership provides
Information, resources and merchandise for
school and community agenoles.
The Red Ribbon Coalition provides trg
fing ,and support to school sith prevent


coordinators and other volunteers respon91lia
