The Monticello News, and the Jeffer-
son County Journal still have tickets for
the Natalie Eades Fundraiser, Sunday,
*Nov. 15, from 11-2 p.m. sponsored by the
Original Wharf Express.
Tickets are $7 for a catfish dinner,
which includes catfish, cheese grits, hush
puppies and coleslaw, with the Wharf Ex-
press located in the Monticello News park-
ing lot on the.Courthouse Circle. For
tickets, or additional information, call
Glenda at 997-3568.
S The Wharf Express is a member of
ihe Monticello/Jefferson County Cham-
ber of Commerce, with the intention of
supporting local businesses and serving
the community.
To this end, all proceeds from the Nov
5th fundraiser will go to the Natalie Eades
family.
Natalie Eades was diagnosed with
Acute Myelogenous Leukemia in Decem-
ber of 2008. After five months of treat-
ment, her cancer went into remission, and
the family was able to return home and
carry on with their lives.
When Natalie underwent her
monthly checkup, Sept. 21, in Gainesville,
it was discovered that her platelet count
had dropped well below the normal level.
She then underwent a bone marrow aspi-
ration.
The results confirmed that the cancer
had returned, and Natalie would require a
bone marrow transplant, and the Eades
family once again moved to Shands, as the
transplant requires a lotof in-patient re-
covery time.
Natalie has finished her chemo, and
is waiting for the cancer to go into remis-
sion, so she can proceed with the trans-
plant.
Her parents are both jobless and face
many expenses. It is towards this end that
the Wharf Express, decided to sponsor the
fundraiser.
Call 997-3568 or stop by the Monticello,
News office to purchase your dinner tick-
ets, for this Sunday's fundraiser.

23-Year Career


The Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) has recently
learned that an old long distance
phone scam that leads consumers to
incur high charges on their phone bills
may now affect wireless consumers. In .
the past, consumers have been fooled
intomaking expensive international
calls by scam artists who leave mes-
sages on consumers' answering ma-
chines or their e-mail accounts. The
messages urge consumers to call a


number with an "809," "284," "876," or
some other area code to collect a prize,
find out about a sick relative, or en-
gage in sex talk.
SWireless consumers are now re-
ceiving similar calls from phone num-
bers with three-digit area codes that
appear to be domestic, but are actually
associated with international pay-per-
:call phone numbers. While wireless
companies are working to block

Jefferson County has a new exten-
sion office e director. H is John Lilly, who
had been serving as interim director
since the former longtime director,
Larry Halsey, resigned on May 31.
The County Commission selected
Lilly over rival candidate George Harri-
son on Thursday morning, Nov. 5. The
commissioners' comments made clear
that Lilly's sterling qualifications, his
longevity with the extension office, and
his service and commitment to youths
and the community made him the
hands-down choice, notwithstanding
the other candidate's impressive quali-
fications.
"We have two very qualified candi-
dates but one of them has lived and
worked 20 years here, has exceptional
qualifications, and can step into the job
without missing a beat," Commissioner
Hines Boyd said in making his motion
to;select Lilly, which motion Commis-
sioner Stephen Fulford seconded.
Commissioner Felix "Skeet" Joyner
quite agreed with Boyd's assessment.
He praised Harrison's qualifications
and the latter's willingness "to step up
to the plate".
"But John Lilly has proved himself
and I can't turn my back on that,"
Joyner said.
Commissioners Danny Monroe and
Gene Hall likewise praised Harrison
and noted that the county was lucky to
have two qualified candidates apply for
the job, but all things considered, their
choice had to be Lilly, they said.
Commissioners earlier had post-
poned a decision on the selection of the
directorship pending their interviewing
of the two candidates.
Lilly is a 21-year veteran of the Jef-
ferson County Extension Office. He
holds a master's in agricultural educa-
tion and has been involved in agricul-
ture-related educational programs since
1986. He started with the Jefferson

morning, Nov. 4, that the
measure had saved Jef-

$520,500 in taxes during
the current year.
Looking at the half-

judging from state's per-
formance the previous
year. She added that
Amendment 1 had
caused the City of Mon-
ticello $55,642 in lost tax
revenues and the school
district $110,648 in lost
tax revenues.
That in a nutshell
was Gray's message to
the committee, which is
beginning to prepare its
lobbying agenda for the
coming legislative ses-


sion. Gray urged the
committee to make it
one of its priorities to
get the Legislature to re-
imburse local govern-
ments in full for the lost
tax revenues caused by
Amendment 1 and the
somewhat related
Amendment 4.
Amendment 1 has

went into effect in 2009.

Jefferson C hi~ rary

Guest Columnist


Are You Humming Yet?


Marsha Jopling
Article by Marsha
Jopling. There has occa-
sionally been a little
mix-up at the newspaper
with who has written a
particular article for
this column. Two of my
articles had Kitty
Brooks, our children's
librarian, as the author.
This doesn't really both-
er me, except that poor
Kitty Brooks might have
to answer questions
about something I have
written. So, I will
always try to preface my
article with my name.
You would think
that with over three
quarters of a million
words in the English
language that there
would be no need for any
nonsense words. But of
course, making it even
more difficult to teach
English to others, our
language is inundated
with thousands of
phrases of "gobbledy-
gook."
A lot of these non-
sense words are used in
the music industry to
keep the rhythm on
t ack until the.:.real
1rics come along:- I bet
yMu can't read the"fol-
Idwing list of words
without humming along
with a few of them, or
reading them with
rhythm. (Caution, if
you are under thirty
years of age you might
not know some of
these!)
Supercalifragilisti-
cexp ialidocious, Do-
wah-ditty-ditty-dum-


ditty-do, Oom-pah-pah-
oom-pah-pah, Be Bop a-
Lula she's my baby, Ob
La Di-Ob La Da-Life goes

Doo Dah Zip A Dee Day,

Edoats, Oo-Ee-Oo-Aa-Aa-
Ting-Tang-Walla-Walla-
Bing-Bang, Inka-Dinka-
Dee-A-Dinka-Doo,
Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo,
Do-Ron-Ron-Ron-Ron
Do-Ron-Ron.
We certainly under-
estimate the power of
nonsense words to com-
municate images and
story lines. One of my
favorite examples of
this concept is the poem,
The Jabberwocky by
Lewis Carroll. While
teaching reading in high
school, I had my stu-
dents pick a stanza and
draw a picture of their
interpretation of the
words. Amazing things
can happen while using
nonsense words!
'Twas brillig, and the
slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in
the wade;
All mimsy were the boro-


Long time the manxome
foe he sought.
So rested he by the
Tumtum tree.
And stood awhile in
thought.
And as in uffish thought
he stood,
The Jabberwock, with
eyes of flame,
Came wiffling through
the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!
One, two! One, two!And
through and through
The vorpal blade went
snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with
its head
He went galumphing
back.
'And hast thou slain the
Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my
beamish boy!
Ofrabjous day! Callooh!
Callay!"
He chortled in his joy.
'Twas brillig, and the
slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in
the wabe;
All mimsy were the boro-


"Beware the
Jabberwock,- my son!
The jaws that bite, the
claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird,
and shun
Thefrumious
Bandersnatch!"
He took his vorpal sword
in hand:


Tlie first


Iewsl|pl|e.





pliited llon


silk.


S I really don't think it
would be a good idea to
use this poem to teach
English to my Hispanics
in the beginner's class!
Can you imagine trying
to play charades with
those words? So, Sha-
Na-Na-Na, Sha-Na-Na-

Can Science and Religion Coexist?


Dear Editor:
When I read so
many letters to the edi-
tor and stingers (and
not just in this newspa-
per) about evolution vs.
creationism, the Word
of God vs. the Laws of
Science and other simi-
lar debates, it seems as
though everything is
seen only as black or
white. You're either
with us or against us.
You can't be a
Christian (or a
Muslim, Hindu, etc.)
and believe in science.
Says who?
I choose both.
Understand that I am
neither a scientist nor
a pastor and that I am
only stating my opin-
ion, not trying to tell
you what you should
believe. I call myself a
Christian and I believe
in the message of the
Bible.
Those who know
me don't see me in
church every Sunday
My last science class
was well over a decade
ago and I haven't been
inside of a lab since.
But I am a firm believ-
er that science and reli-
gion both have real and
necessary purpose in
the world.
When I go to hear
my pastor's sermon, he
is rt.yJjip. to explain


to me how my world
works or why. I never
hear about quantum
physics or biology.
He's more concerned
With who I am and how
I treat my neighbors.
He wants me to know
right from wrong and
to be an example to oth-
ers. The Bible doesn't
tell me the four states
of matter or what the
speed of light is.
The message I hear
is that what I do in this
life affects what my
existence will be like in
the next. And that
what I do is more
important than what I
say. My purpose on this
earth is not to tell oth-
ers what they should
do, but to make sure
that I leave it at least
a little better than I
found it.
When I was sitting
in chemistry class, the
instructor never said,
"And therefore this
experiment proves that
God does not exist."
Physics doesn't explain
to me why I should tell
my kids that stealing is
wrong. Nowhere on
the periodic table of
elements is there .a
commandment or a
parable. What I did
learn is that combining
certain elements and
compounds can be dan-


gerous or beneficial -
and you'd better know
the difference. I try to
grasp the brain-numb-
ing concepts that are
the domain of people
much smarter than I
am.
My point is this:
science tells me why
and how, and the Bible
tells why and how. But
science deals with the
physical universe, and
the Bible deals with my
soul and my moral
compass.
Science is neither
moral nor immoral;
that's what God's mes-
sage is for. Splitting an
atom can be destruc-
tive or it can be benefi-
cial. We need responsi-
ble scientists and
physicists that work to
benefit mankind and
the universe as a
whole.
When I tell my kids
about how the lizard on
our porch evolved to
change it's skin 'color,
or how the light from a
star took so long to
reach us that the star is
likely extinguished by
now, I also tell them to
thank God for giving us
a wonderful and beau-
tiful universe to live
in.

erties that changed own-
ership requiring new
applications to be filed
and field verification".
As for the agricul-
tural classification,
Gray said the annual


Amendment


homeowners who move
from one homestead to
another; a $25,000 exemp-
tion on tangible personal
property; and 10 percent
growth limitations on the
assessments of non-home-
stead real properties, such
as rental, commercial or
recreational units the
last component to kick in.
Going by last year's
figures, when only three of
the components were in
place, Gray calculates that
taxpayers saved or the
county lost in revenues,
depending on how one
chooses to look at it -
$$421,688. Meaning that if
the Legislature had stuck
to its representation that
counties would be reim-
bursed for 95 percent of
their lost tax revenues due
to the amendment,
Jefferson County should
have received $400,604
from the state. Instead,
Jefferson received $181,807
- a loss of $239,881.
It may have been that
the partial reimbursement
resulted from the poor
economy and the state's
consequent reduced rev-
enues, Gray said. But if
last year's scenario held
true this year, the county
could expect to be reim-
bursed only a portion of
the $520,500, unless the
Legislature could be con-
vinced to do otherwise, she
said.
As for Amendment 4,
which goes into effect at
the start of 2010, its aim is
to prevent urban sprawl by
encouraging private prop-
erty owners to put their
lands into permanent con-
servation easements.
Meaning that the property
owners can still use their
lands for farming, ranch-
ing, logging and other
agriculture-related uses,
but they give up their right
to ever develop the lands
for commercial uses. In
return, the law exempts
from property taxes those
lands put into conserva-
tion easements.
Gray's best estimates
is that next year
Amendment 4 will cause
revenue losses of $139,000
to Jefferson County and
$131,000 to the school dis-
trict.
The projected rev-
enues losses for the school
district caught the atten-

but it would not require

Her office, moreover,
would take a more active
approach to reviewing
the claims and doing
field inspections every
five years to ensure that
a bona-fide commercial
agricultural activity
was taking place on the
property
As things stood now,
the green cards were
routinely filed away and
pretty much forgotten,
Gray said. And individu-
als who were fraudulent-
ly claiming exemptions
and the agricultural
classification were
doing it under the pres-
ent system, she said.
The automatic renewals
would afford her staff
more time and opportu-
nity to monitor compli-
ance and the veracity of
the claims and check on


some 2,000 parcels that
were backlogged, she
said.
"By not having to
worry about the renew-
al, it gives us more time
to check parcels to see if
they are in compli-
ance," Gray said.
She further let it be
known that per Florida
statutes, property own-
ers who intentionally
cheat on their home-
stead exemptions will
have a tax lien put on
their properties,' be
back taxed for up 10
years (as applicable),
and be required to pay a
sizeable penalty (50 per-
cent of the unpaid taxes
for each year), and pay
interest at a rate of 15
percent pr year.
Jefferson County is
the last of Florida's 67
counties to implement
the automatic home-
stead renewals, and.it is
the 53rd to implement
the automatic agricul-
tural classification
renewal, according to
Gray.

tion of Marianne Arbulu,
the School Board's repre-
sentative on the commit-
tee. With the school dis-
trict already reeling from a
25 percent drop in its budg-
et over the last year, it
could ill afford any more
funding cuts, Arbulu made
clear. She said the situa-
tion was so critical that
the district couldn't afford
to repair the elementary
school's leaking roof, nor
retrofit the district's air
conditioning and heating
systems, which were
monthly costing the dis-
trict $45,000 in energy
bills.
Bottom line, the
school district needed any-
where between $75,000 and
$1 million to repair the
leaking roof and retrofit
the cooling and heating
systems so that the energy
costs could be reduced, she
said.
Arbulu said other
issues existed, but the two
named were the ones that
the School Board wanted
the committee to pursue
on behalf of'the district,
in terms of trying to "get
the necessary state fund-
ing from the Legislature in
the coming session.
The committee also
briefly discussed and ulti-
mately rejected a request
to seek higher compensa-
tion for fire and emer-
gency medical personnel
called as witnesses in civil
cases. The going rate for
such testimony is $5.60 a
day and .06 cents per mile,
compensation that former
Fire Rescue chief Jim
Billberry considered
grossly inadequate and
unfair.
Billberry was sup-
posed to research the issue
and report his findings to
the committee on Monday.
Billberry, however, was not
at the meeting, having
gained employment with
the Jefferson County
Health Department in the
interim.
In the brief discussion
that ensued on the topic,
Curt Kiser and Attorney
Paula Sparkman argued
against the proposal, call-
ing it a not winnable bat-
tle. Their argument was
essentially that if adjust-
ed for one group, such as
firefighters or emergency
medical personnel, the


between the ages of 10 and
17.
Further investigation
revealed that in 2000, there
were two separate investiga-
tions conducted on Miller for
sexual offenses involving


payments would have to
be adjusted for other
groups, which would
prove prohibitive for the
state. Testifying, more-
over, was supposed to be a
civic duty, they said.
Julie Conley, econom-
ic development director
and a member of the com-
mittee, reported on her
research into the possibil-
ity3 of getting the
Legislature to designate
an Enterprise -Zone in
Jefferson County
Enterprise zones are
state-designated special
areas intended to spur
economic development by
affording tax relief and
other incentives to busi-
nesses that locate within
the zone's specified
boundaries.
Florida currently has
53 enterprise zones, which
can only be changed when
one of the current mem-
bers drops out, not a likely
scenario. Conley's
research indicates that in
at least three or four
instances in the past, the
Legislature has acted to
create special enterprise
zones. It was Conley's
assessment that although
it was possible to get such
a designation from the
Legislature, it wasn't
probable. The reason it
wasn't probable, she said,
was because it would have
a negative impact on the
state in terms of lost rev-
enues and other costs, and
under the present eco-
nomic circumstances, the
state was unlikely to
undertake something that
was to its detriment.
"It's possible and we
can ask for it, but it's my
feeling is that it probably
won't fly now," Conley
said.
Even so, the commit-
tee encouraged her to
approach the Economic
Development Council
(EDC) and get its mem-
bers' thinking on the mat-
ter, as the EDC would
have to produce the sup-
porting documentation to
justify the request, if the
committee was to pursue
it.
The legislative com-
mittee meets the first
Wednesday of each
month in the Chamber of
Commerce on West
Washington Street.

Scam

suspicious numbers on their
networks, some consumers
may become victims of this
scam.
The Scam Works
Something Like This:
Your. wireless phone
rings once or twice and then
disconnects the call. When
the number appears in your
wireless phone log as a
missed call, it appears to be a
typical domestic telephone
number starting with a "649"
area code; or you get an e-
mail or voicemail (on your
residential wired telephone)
telling you to call a phone
number with an "809", "284",
"876," or some other three-
digit international area code.
When you return the call,
you assume you are making
a domestic long distance call
-as "649," "809," "284," "876,"
and other area codes
involved in this scam, appear
to be typical three-digit U.S.
area codes.
When you dial the three-
digit area code plus the num-
ber, however, you are con-
nected to a phone number
outside the United States,
often in Canada or .the,
Caribbean, and.are charged
expensive international call
rates, and may be charged for
pay-per-call services as well.
(In this case, "649" goes to the
Turks and Caicos, "809" goes
to the Dominican Republic,
"284" goes to the British
Virgin Islands, and "876"
goes to Jamaica.)
You don't find out about
the higher international call,
rates until you receive your
phone bill.
What You Can Do to
Minimize the Risk of This
Happening to You:
Check any unfamiliar area
codes before returning calls.


Industrial


Methods to relocate to the
industrial park will be
nowhere sufficient to cover
the costs of the site improve-
ments. What's more, no one
now seems to know where
the $40,000 figure came from,
with one official describing
the amount as having been
"plugged out of the air". For
the record, it was the figure
that Economic Development
Director Julie Conley and
others quoted to the com-
mission when the proposal
first surfaced.
Part of the explanation
for the increase which
one individual close to the
project said could be as high
as $200,000 is that Air
Methods has greatly expand-
ed the original proposal,
including the addition of a
small hangar. The question
that county officials are now
asking is who will pay
upfront for the increase?
Per the terms of the
original agreement,
Jefferson County was to pay
for the cost of the improve-
ments upfront and Air
Methods was to reimburse
the county for the costs over
a four-year period, along
with the monthly lease pay-
ments on the property In
light of the expected higher
cost now, however, officials
are revisiting the issue, with
at least one commissioner
suggesting that Air Methods
pay upfront for any cost in
excess of the $40,000.
County Coordinator
Roy Schleicher assured com-
missioners on Thursday,
Nov. 5, that Air Methods offi-
cials were well aware that
the overage largely resulted
from their additions to the
original request and were
being very cooperative.
"That $40,000 was
plugged out of the air,"
Schleicher said.


In referring the two
candidates to the
Jefferson County
Commission for the final
selection, Dr. Pete Vergot,
extension director of the
northwest district, indi-
cated to officials here
that either candidate
would be acceptable to
the University of Florida
(UF) Institute of Food
and Agricultural
Services (IFAS), which
shares oversight of coun-
ty extension offices.
Speaking earlier in


support of Lilly's selec-
tion were several commu-
nity leaders, including
former Monticello News
Publisher Ron Cichon,
retired Methodist
Minister Carl Hanks, and
retired Jefferson County
School District
Administrator Albert
Thomas, all of whom
described Lilly to one
degree or another as a
good, caring and dedicat-
ed community leader and
"a standup guy".

County Attorney Buck
Bird noted he also had a con-
cern. Although Air Methods
was committed to paying
back the .costs over a 48-
month period, he thought
that for the sake of clarity
and accountability, the com-.
pany should sign off on the
bids, he said.
Commissioner Hines
Boyd offered that another
option was that "Air
,Methods comes up with the
difference upfront."
But this was as far as
the discussion went, as
Schleicher was merely
reporting on the status of
the two projects. The com-
mission did, however,
appoint John McHugh, the
assistant county coordina-
tor and a certified industrial
engineer, to oversee the two
projects.
Air Methods is the
country's largest provider of
air medical emergency
transport services and sys-
tems. The company has

ment with Jefferson County
to station one of its helicop-
ter medical crews at the

Safety Tips For Home Repair

In Storm-Damaged Areas


The danger of a
storm does not end
when it passes. As
Florida citizens affect-
ed by the recent
Tropical Storm return
to their homes and
begin repairs, the
Department of Health
suggests taking the fol-
lowing safety precau-
tions to prevent per-
sonal injury:
If possible, work
in pairs or groups.
Take short breaks and
work during the cool-
er hours of the day.
Wear goggles,
heavy gloves and
steel-toed boots.
Immediately clean
all open wounds and
cuts with soap and
clean water. Cuts
beyond minor scratch-
es may require med-
ical attention.
Never assume that
water-damaged struc-
tures are safe; leave
immediately if shift-
ing or unusual noises
occur.
Avoid lifting more
than 50 pounds of
debris or building
materials. Two or
more people should
move bulky objects.
Avoid heat stroke
and heat exhaustion
by wearing light-col-
ored, loose-fitting
clothing and drinking
a glass of fluid every
15 to 20 minutes.
Only experienced
individuals should
use chain saws and
specialized equip-
ment. When .using
chain saws or other
heavy equipment,
wear earplugs.
To prevent electro-
cution in wet areas,
turn power off at the
main breaker.
Never handle a
downed power line.
Never bring gaso-
line- or diesel-pow-
ered pumps, genera-
tors or pressure wash-
ers indoors as they


release
monoxide

Evangelist Pattie T. Bennett
Associate Minister
Mt. Pleasant M.B. Church
Capps, FL
Rev. Charles G. Smith, Sr., pastor
This lesson is from
Saint Luke chapter 7,
verses 11-17. Jesus and
his disciples, and many
of the people following
Him, went into a city
called Nain. When Jesus
came near the gate to
the city, a dead man was
-being carried away in a
coffin. Many of the peo-
ple from the city were in
the funeral procession
with the dead man's
mother. This woman's PatieT. Bennett
husband had also pre-
ceded her son in death.
Now that she was losing her only son, the
woman was crying, and was probably feeling lonely
and helpless. In those days, it was customary for the
bereaved family to continue mourning for 30 days.
But when Jesus saw the woman crying, he was
moved with compassion to comfort her, and He told
her to "weep no more." Then Jesus touched the dead
man's coffin, and the pallbearers stood still to let
Him do His work.
Jesus commanded the dead man to rise up, and
the dead man sat up and bbgan to talk; and Jesus
gave the young man back to his mother. The people
became afraid as they witnessed the supernatural
miracle being performed by Jesus. They began to
praise Him and glorified God saying, "A great
prophet is risen up among us; and God has visited
His people." The rumor of Jesus and this miracle He
performed spread throughout Judaea and all sur-
rounding regions.
Death may come into your life in many ways,
but pain is always the end result. When you are
faced with the kind of death this woman experi-
enced; it makes you feel physically, mentally, and
spiritually empty People will try to comfort you by
saying, "I know how you feel." But when love ones
die, compassionate words cannot remove the pain in
your heart or lift your heavy burden. Death comes
into a marriage when a spouse has been unfaithful-
ness.
This will cause the other person to grieve from
being betrayed, experience hurt, loneliness and
pain. Sincere apologies from the unfaithful spouse
and encourage-ment from others will not readily re-
move the pain that is felt inside. Death will also
occur in a home when loved ones are incarcerated
or strung out on drugs and alcohol. Most of the
time, others will count them out and pronounce a
.death sentence on their lives; and society will call


them "losers." But God is a God of a second
chance.
If you cast your cares on Jesus and stand still,
He will be moved with compassion and comfort
you. Jesus will touch your dead situation and re-
store everything the enemy has taken away.
In September 2005, during a routine knee sur-
gery, the doctors pronounced me dead twice, and
each time they used the defibrillator to make my
heart beat again. In 2008, I had 98percent blockage
in three heart valves and had to undergo triple by-
pass surgery
After working for more than 33 years, and not
being able to return to work, I was depressed and
felt like my life had ended. In February 2009, I had
a heart attack and 99 percent blockage in the same
arteries, which required three stent implants. In
July 2009, my left main artery was completely
blocked and I was on the verge of having a massive
heart attack. This artery also had to have a stent
implant.
After recovering from these surgeries, the
Lord allowed me to realize; like the young man in
the scripture, I could have been dead and carried
out in a coffin. But, by the grace of God, Jesus
touched my body, restored my life and gave me
back to my family. Every day of my life I praise
Jesus and give God the glory.
Recently, someone close to me became very
ill. The doctors diagnosed the illness to be incur-
able, and the odds for recovery were very
slim. Similar to the woman in this scripture, the
family grieved from fear of losing their last sur-
viving parent. But, instead of giving up and call-
ing in hospice care to take their love away, they
held on to their faith and united in prayer.
As a result, Jesus has healed the family's loved
one and brought restoration into their
home. Psalms 30:5 says... "Weeping may endure for
a night, but joy cometh in the morning." In this
scripture lesson, Jesus restored the life of this
mother's only son; and Jesus gave His life so that
we may have everlasting life. Saint John 3:16 says,
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only
begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish, but have everlasting life."
I can only imagine how helpless the mother of
Jesus felt as she watched her son suffering, and
she could not save his life. She could only weep as
her son died on the cross and was buried in a bor-
rowed tomb.
I can also imagine the joy she felt when her son
rose from the grave with all powers in His
hands. Jesus has prepared an eternal resting place
in Heaven for His children. A place where there
will be no more sickness, no more tears, no more
sadness, pain, or death. If you have not confessed
Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, today can be your
day of restoration. May God bless and keep you in
His care. 997-3612

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT
The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of
its intent to issue an environmental resources individual stormwa-
ter permit for Jefferson County Industrial Park, Permit Number
33-0296320-001-SI, to Roy Schleicher, County Manager,
Jefferson County Board of County Commissioners, 450 West
Walnut Street, Monticello, Florida 32344.
The purpose of the permit is to authorize construction of
1,145 feet of roadway, construction of a 7,900 square foot heliport
and an associated storm water management system on Industrial
Park Road, on 4.15 acres of a 32.0 acre parcel. Stormwater treat-
ment will be provided via two retention facilities and a swale sys-
tem. No portion of the site development contains jurisdictional
wetlands. Proper erosion control measures will be employed dur-
ing construction.
The project will be located on the west end of Industrial Park
Road, west of U.S. Highway 19 (S.R. 57), south of the City of
Monticello, in Jefferson County, Florida.
Based on all the above, and with the application of general
and limiting specific conditions of the permit, the Department has
reasonable assurance the project, as proposed, fully meets the
environmental resources stormwater treatment requirements of
Chapter 62-346, Florida Administrative Code, and will not harm
the environment.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the
Department's action may petition for an administrative proceed-
ing (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida
Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth
below and must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of
General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to re-
determine final agency action on the application, the filing of a
petition for an administrative hearing may result in a modification
of the permit, or even a denial of the application. Accordingly, the
applicant will not commence construction or other activities
under this permit until the deadlines below for filing a petition for
an administrative hearing, or request for an extension of time,
have expired.
Under subsection. 62-110.106(4) of the Florida
Administrative Code, a person whose substantial interests are
affected by th Department's action may also request an extension
of time to file a petition for an administrative hearing. The
Department may, for good cause shown, grant the request for an
extension of time. Requests for extension of time must be filed
with the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000, before the applicable deadline. A timely request for
extension of time shall toll the running time period for filing a
petition until the request is acted upon. If a request is filed late, the
Department may still grant it upon a motion by the requesting
party showing that the failure to file a request for an extension of
time before the deadline was the result of excusable neglect.
In the event that a timely and sufficient petition for an
administrative hearing is filed, other persons whose substantial
interests will be affected by the outcome of the administrative
process have the right to petition to. intervene-in the-proceedin .
Intervention will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer
upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205
Ofthe-HoHd Aidministrative Code.
In accordance with subsection 28-106111(2) and subpara-
graph 62-110.106(3)(a).4, Florida Administrative Code, petitions
for an administrative hearing by the applicant must be filed with-
in 21 days of receipt of written notice. Petitions filed by any per-
sons other than the applicant, and other than those entitled to writ-
ten notice under Section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes, must be
filed within 21 days of publication of the notice.
Under Section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes, however,
any person who has asked the Department for notice of agency
action may file a petition within 21 days of such notice, regardless
of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the appli;
cant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The fail-
ure of any person to file a petition for an administrative hearing
within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of
those rights.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the
Department's action is based must contain the following informa-
tion:
(a) The name and address of each agency affected and each
agency's file or identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner;
the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner's rep-
resentative, if any, which shall be the address for service purpos-
es during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how..
the petitioner's substantial interests are or will be affected t' the
agency determination;
(c) A statement of when and how the petitioner recei ed notice
of the agency decision;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact II there
are none, the petition must so indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including
the specific facts that the petitioner contends warrant re' erjl or
modification of the agency's proposed action;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes that the peition-
er contends require reversal or modification of the agency's pr...-
posed action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, sia ing pre-
cisely the action that the petitioner wishes the agency t: take v. ith
respect to the agency's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the material fact onn which
the Department's action is based shall state that no such fjct re
in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same informiaon .i, et
forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301. FIlorid

of Versailles was signed on
June 28, 1919, in the Palace of
SVersailles outside the town of
V Versailles, France.
However, fighting ceased
seven months earlier when an


RAY CICHON
Monticello News
Managing Editor
Ned Hill recently
was named
Commander of
Jefferson County
VFW Post 251. of
which he has been
a member since
it's inception.
Despite some 120
members on the
rolls, only about
20 are active.
"We desper-
ately need more
y1ngor merrtbtaiu
w can help srve '
the community, and
other veterans. The
VFW is more than a
social club, but rather
helps with veterans'
benefits and other veter-
ans' affairs, and also
works with the various
churches towards a com-
mon cause," Hill
stressed.
The Jefferson


County native, is a grad-
uate of Howard
Academy and earned his
AA degree at North
Florida Community
College. Shortly after,
when he was 20 years
old, Hill was drafted into
the Army It was 1969,
and the US was
embroiled in the Viet
Nam War.
,He served two years,
and considers himself
blessed because among
the men drafted from the
country with him, was
his close friend, Steven
Lane,' with whom he
grew up. They were in
the same company, but
different platoons.
"We were a study in
opposites, physically I
was a sickly child, and
suffered from asthma,
and Steve was healthy

tion of hostilities, between the
Allied nations and Germany
went into effect on the eleventh
hour of the eleventh day of the
eleventh month. For that rea-
son, November 11, 1918, is gen-
erally regarded as the end of
"the war to end all wars."
Soldiers of the
353rd Infantry near
a church at Stenay,
Meuse in France,
wait for the end of
hostilities. This
photo was taken at
10:58 a.m., on


Ned Hill
and a physical education
major. It was a serious
challenge for me to get
through eight weeks of
basic training, but God
was with me and I made
it.
In the 500 club
(physical training
prowess) I scored 480."
Both men attended
jump school, and
became paratroopers
for the 173rd Airborne.
Hill relayed that at that
time the base pay was
$67 per month, but there
was an additional $55
for Airborne Infantry
In addition, they served
one-year tour of duty in
Viet Nam, for which
there was additional
hazardous duty pay.
In 1968, Hill was
wounded by an enemy
artillery explosion, and
soon recovered.
I was "shielded and
protected by God" were
the words Hill used to


explain the event.
After, his tour of
duty in Viet Nam, Hill
became an instructor, in
California, and pre-
pared recruits for a
tour of duty in Viet
Nam. Recruits
learned of the
importance of
depending on one
another, coordina-
tion, hard work,
setting goals and
succeeding in
meeting them.

not to give up, and
carried this over into
his life after his dis-
charge. When he got out
of the Army, he could
not obtain work. Many
times he would call for
an appointment for a
position, and when he
got there, he was told
the job was filled.
Ultimately he
applied in person for a
position with then Gulf
Oil. He was told that
there was file of appli-
cations that had to be
screened before his
could be accepted. Hill
persisted and was final-
ly given an application
to complete.
Two weeks later, he
received a call and was
hired. He became a
mechanic and was
trained at GM Training
School. Over the years
as Gulf Oil was sold and
resold, Hill stayed the
course. He loves his job
and particularly deal-
ing with people. In 1977,
Hill became a manager
of the company and was
made a junior partner.
Today, he continues
to manage an outlet in

ber of the Post for some
38 years. While there
are about 80 members on
the books, only about 30

Legion to seek:,inore,
younger veterEans to
become members.
"The Aifierican
Legion is the besi 'rgan-
ization, on the national
level, for. looking after
veterans," Westbrook
remarks. The Legion
keeps in touch with the
communality needs,
and the Legion Hall on
Water Street is often
rented for a variety of
affairs, he continues.
In addition, the
Legion sponsor the
Boys' State experience
each year, awarded to a
male in the junior class
at local high schools.
This is a weeklong
experience, at Florida
State University, which
is designed to teach the
basics of government
and politics in general.
Westbrook enlisted

In addition to serv-

a variety of education
and experience, which
could well help shape

Natalie lades was diagnosed with Acute Myclogenous
lIeukemia in December of 2008. Through the many prayers
and support from the community, Natalie's cancer went into
remission after five months of treatment. Jason, Chelsea, and
Natalie then returned home and started going on with life
again. Everything was going well and they even added a new
addition to the family Iexie, born on Aug. 21, 200)9.


.. On Monday, Sept. 21, 2009, Jason
S- and Chelsea took Natalie for her rou-
t tine monthly checkup in Gainesville,
only this time they found out that her
platelet count had dropped well
below the normal level. They stayed
the night in Gainesville and the next
morning Natalie was scheduled for a
hone marrow aspiration. After the
S lest, they went home and waited for the
S i,'sults. They received a call from the
S.,, tor conlirmiing that Natalie's cancer
| / IlI come back. This lime she would have
S / i,. i. ive a bone marrow transplant, which
m .-' 11I IIh ly had to relocate to Gainesville,
Igaill, Ililni ime possibly for longer since a bone
marrow Iransplant requires a lot of in-patient hospital re-
covery time. The Eades are currently living in Shands again.
Natalie has finished her chemo and is wailing for the can-
cer to go into remission again so she can proceed with her
Iransplanl.
Jason and Chelsea are both jobless and have many expenses
ahead. Please come enjoy!
