The details of the
program have yet to be
-'forthcoming and the al-
lotted amount for the re-
pairs is a mere $197,000.
;but officials are glad to
,get any money.
Cotuty Coordinator
'Roy Schleicher, who
Made commissioners
aware of the funding on
Thursday evening, Dec.
17, said Jefferson
SCounty was the very last
of the 30 coun t ies on the
list to get a portion of
the particular stimulus
money, which was com-
ing from the US Depart-
ment of Housing and
Urban Development
(HUD) through the
Florida Department of.
Community Affairs
(FDCA).
"'Eligibility will be
based on income and it
will be handled through
the grants office." Schle-
icher said, adding thai
he couldn't elaborate be-
yond this until more of
the details were learned.
Schleicher asked
the conunission to ap-
prove the appropriate
resolution so that it
could be submitted to
the FDCA by the Dec. 23
deadline to qualify for
the funding.
Commissioners
wanted to know about
residents who had al-
ready made repairs to
their dwellings and how
the integrity of the
process would be as-
sured so that people did-
n't get reimbursed for
false claims?
Schleicher said pro-
cedures would obviously
have to be implemented
to ensure that individu-
als who applied for reim-
bursements for repairs
of Fay-related damage
would have to show
some kind of proof of
their claims. But again,
he said. the details had
yet to be worked out.
Schleicher prom-
ised to have more infor-
mation on the program
when the commission
met again on Jan. 7.

The city has now
submitted its draft
Evaluation Ap-
praisal Report
(EAR) to the Florida
Department of Com-
munity Affairs
(FDCA) for review and
approval.
A revaluation process
that the state requires all
communities undertake
every seven years to assess the
strengths and weaknesses of their
comprehensive plans and update these
planning documents, the EAR also pro-
vides an opportunity for local govern-
ments to step back and ascertain
where they are going and make course
corrections if necessary.
The report's mixed findings, as
found in the executive summary, is es-
sentially that the-city is "in a good po-
sition to absorb growth", as it escaped
the runaway growth pressures that
taxed the resources of other Florida
communities during the past five to 10
years.
States the executive summary:
"Unlike the majority of the state, the
city is in a unique position to provide
road, water and sewer capacity to new
development. Because of this competi-
tive advantage the city needs to put
into place the protections that the state
requires to ensure that capacity re-
mains available in the future. This in-
cludes implementing concurrency

woman ,Shirley Washington,
who interpreted the maneuver
as intended to exclude her and

COUNTY LEASE OF A-BUILDING


POTENTIALLY CONTENTIOUS ISSUE


LAZARO ALEMAN
Monticello News
Senior Staff Writer
The proposed lease of the
school district's A-Building by
the county a matter that first
surfaced in early November
when Clerk of Court Kirk
Reams proposed it to the
County Commission and the
School Board, and that ap-
peared to go dormant, if not
dead, in the immediate wake
resurfaced explosively at the
County Commission meeting
on Thursday evening, Dec. 17.
Although off the radar pub-
licly, it appears that things were
happening behind the scenes, to
the disgruntlement of at least
one School Board member.
What happened, specifically, is
that Commissioner Hines Boyd


postal that the two boards could
consider.
Commissioner Felix
"Skeet" Joyner, who initially
opposed the idea of the county
leasing the A-Building, or at
least expressed strong reserva-
tions about the deal being nego-
tiated by, only a few individuals
on each board, now came out in
strong support of the idea. He
proposed that the County Com-
mission and the School Board
hold a joint workshop to explore
the issue.
"I think everybody needs to
be involved," Joyner said. "We
have the resources to renovate
the building. It's an ideal proj-
ect for both boards to work on."
He added that the A-Build-

without being recognized by the
County Commission chairman,
during which time commission-
ers engaged in lively discussion
of what should be done with the
historic building. The dynam-
ics made for an explosive con-
coction.
It all started with Reams
mentioning that further talks
had taken place on the A-Build-
ing and suggesting that the
commission appoint a commit-
tee to meet with a School Board
appointed committee so the two
groups could work up a pro-


Rainfall In November


Below Average Here
LAZARO ALEMAN

Senior Staff Writer .
An average of two
inches of rain fell across ,
the Suwannee River -
Water Management Dis-
trict (SRWMD) in No-
vember, which
represents.85 percent of
the historic average of
2.36 inches for the
month.
Even though No-
vember is generally
recognized as the dri-
est month of the year, the
latest hydrologic condition report released by the
SRWMD on Dec. 3 indicates the 12-month rainfall
deficit increased for the third straight month. Histor-
icqlly, the 12-month average is 54.68 inches for No-
vember; it was 50.03 for the past 12 months, a deficit
of 4.65 inches.
Jefferson County received 2.77 inches of rainfall
in November, which is below the 4.06 inches it re-
ceived last November and below the 3.44 inches it his-
torically receives for the month. The county has
received a total of 54.30 inches during the last 12
months.
Neighboring Madison County, meanwhile, re-
ceived 2.14 inches in November, compared with 3.49
last November and its historic November average of
3.12 inches.
Overall, river flows and lake levels dropped or de-
teriorated across the district, with the exception of a
few rivers and lakes in the northern part.
"Groundwater levels decreased in 91 percent of
the district's monitored wells, but 68 percent re-
mained above the 251' percentile, in a range normal
for November," the report states. "Average groundwa-
ter levels dropped to the 33"r percentile from the 35th
percentile in October."

Among its other purposes, the
EAR analyses the city's actions insofar
as implementing its 1990 adopted com-
prehensive plan; assesses the degree to
which the city's objectives have been
achieved; and identifies the major is-

requirements are in terms of current

Highlights of the report follow:
Based upon census counts, the
city's population declined slightly from.
1990 to 2006. What 's more, the city is
not projected to grow significantly in
population through 2020.
Yet notwithstanding the uncertain
effects of the current residential slow-
down, "there are reasons to believe
growth is on its horizon," the report
states.
"First, as new residential subdivi-
sions are built, the city will experience
some population increase. Second, as
Jefferson County continues to grow,
the city should capture its share of the

Dear Editor:
Mr. Johnson's letter,

The peppered moth has

Did Kettlewell glue

Yes.

Stimulus Bill: Was It A Good Use Of Our Money?


Dear Editor:
The stimulus bill
was sold to the public as
a means of creating 4.5
to 5 million new private
sector jobs, which would
get us out of the worst
recession, since the
great depression.
The President and
his congressional
friends told us that it
must be passed quickly,
and with little scrutiny
by the public. Imagine a
1,200 page bill was
rushed through con-
gress and signed by the
President, all in matter
of a few days. We were
told that this spending
bill was to prevent the
unemployment rate
from exceeding 8 per-
cent.
Almost overnight,
the 4.5 to 5 million new
jobs transitioned into 3
million new or save jobs.
The cost of the stimulus
bill was heralded as a
great triumph, because


the dollar amount was
kept down to only $787
billion, instead of the
original estimate of $1
trillion.
By using the opti-
mistic figure of 3 mil-
lion jobs, that comes to
$2262,333 for each new
job. I don't know if it's
just me, or does this cost
seem to be ridiculously
out of line. The
President and the
Congress did not find
bails of unspent money
in the basement of the
treasury. They simply
printed some new
money up and added to
the deficit.
After the massive
stimulus bill spending,
the President decided
that maybe they should
organize a job summit,
to determine how are
actually created.
However, representa-
tives from two of the
largest employers'
organizations were not


invited to the job sum-
mit.
The US Chamber of
Commerce and the
National Federation of
Small Businesses were
both excluded. Have you
Shad enough of the
incompetence and
wastefulness from the
community organizer
and this congress? Any
senator or congressman
who voted to spend
$262,333 for each new, or
saved job, needs to be
recalled in the next
available election. Also,
in three years from now,
there will be another
election and a chance to
unwind some more of
this wastefulness.
Your economic
health may well be at
risk, if we don't take
actions to reverse their
destructive tax and
spend addiction! No gov-
ernment has ever spent
it's way into lasting
prosperity, but many


have gone broke trying.

The Christmas
Season is celebrated
around the world in
many languages. It is
amazing hoyw just two lit-
tle words ... "Merry
Christmas ... seem to
illuminate the world with
love and the hope of
peace. Maya Angelou's
2005 book of poems enti.
tied 'Amazing Peace"
sums up Christmas as a
time when "angels and
mortals, believers and
nonbelievers, look heav-
enward, and speak'the
word aloud. Peace!"
In Angelou's recita-
tion on December 1, 2005
at the lighting of the
National Christmas Tree
at the White House, she
proclaims "It I is
Christmas time, a halting
of hate time. On this plat-
form of peace, we can cre-
ate a language to trans-
late ourselves, td our-
selves, and to each other."
May we all follow
Angelou's advice this
Christmas as "We look at
each other, then into our-
selves, and we say with-
out shyness or apology or
hesitation: Peace, My
Brother! Peace, My
Sister! Peace, My Soul!"
So go on and have your-
self a merry little
Christmas by wishing

COUNTY


Appraisal Report


annex lands in it urban
service areas to provide
new developments the
necessary public utili-
ties. Finally, as central
and south Florida
become more devel-
oped, populations will
shift to north Florida
and the Big Bend."
Between 1990 and
the present, the city
grew geographically by
521 acres through vol-
untary annexations,
going from 2,068 acres
in 1996 to 2,588 acres at
present. Prompting the
annexations were prop-
erty owners desiring
connection to the city's
water and sewer facili-
ties.
"For this reason,
the city's boundaries
will continue to grow
through annexation as
property owners seek
higher densities than
can be.served by septic
tanks. While this is not
currently' a problem,
the city will need to be
cautious to ensure that
future annexations and
new developments do
not result in a sprawl-
ing low density residen-
tial development pat-
tern," the report states.
The city has more
than adequate residen-
tial lands to meet the
projected population
demands up to 2020.
"The amount of
land currently set aside
for residential should
be sufficient to meet the
projected demand for
presidential based -upon
th ,population projec-
tions," states the
report. "With that said,
the city may continue to
receive requests to
annex lands within the
county at, or close to,
the density within the
county. The city should
anticipate how it
intends to grow and use
the' public facilities
available to reach those
goals."
In general, com-
mercial lands within
the city have increased
since adoption of the
comprehensive plan,
with all the growth
mostly occurring
between 1990 and 1996.
The report notes that
the city has seen some
new commercial devel-
opment but no major
expansion of retail. It
offers that new retail'
areas may be needed
within the planning
timeframe with the
development of new
subdivisions.
The city has suffi-
cient surplus sewer and
potable water capaci-
ties under its existing
systems to accommo-
date development.
Because the city also
provides services to
non-residential and res-
idential growth in the
county, however, it will
need to monitor its
usages, the report


notes.


notes.
The city has no
significant areas of
flooding, as the lands
that are subject to flood-
ing are either not devel-
opable or designated
conservation areas.
Additionally, the' city
requires that develop-
ments have a stormwa-
ter standard of 25-year
frequency and 24-hour
duration, and that post-
development rates not
exceed redevelopment
rates of discharge.
The city has sig-
nificant, solid waste
capacity through the
regional landfill in
Greenville.
The city has no
capacity problems on
roads. Its roads are pro-
jected to operate at sat-
isfactory levels of serv-
ice through 2015.
City residents
must dedicate a higher
portion of 'their
salaries to cover hous-
ing costs since 1990,
indicative of a national
trend of housing costs
exceeding salary
increases.
The city has
accomplished three
major successes rela-
tive to the implementa-
tion of its comprehen-
sive plan. The three are:
addressing its water
and sewer capacity
needs in. the early 90s;
not having capacities
taxed, in part because
of its lack of rapid
growth; and, envisions.
. ing an urban service.
,area (USA) that encom-
"'iasses the interstate.
Additionally, outside of
its comprehensive plan,
the city embarked on a
project with the county
to envision the commu-
nity's future,
"These factors
demonstrate the city's
desire to plan for the
future," the report
notes. "Like many local
governments, the
resources are not there
to do the level of plan-
ning they desire. But
over time and with dili-
gence, the city can pre-
pare for its growth and
work toward its com-
munity vision."
Among the city's
cited shortcomings: It
is not annually amend-
ing its capital improve-
ment plan to address its
needs or evaluate
changes; it does not
have a system in place
to implement concur-
rency and does not
require concurrency
review as part of devel-
opment approvals; and,
although it has polices
in place to address its
capital improvement
and housing needs, it
has not implemented
these provisions.
The report offers
numerous strategies for
addressing and correct-
ing the cited deficien-
cies. These strategies


Cont. From Page 1 Rainfall


include. incorporating
annual capital improve-
ment planning in its
budgeting process and
updating its data on
water, sewer, traffic
capacities and develop-.
ing a, review and
approval process to
ensure that capacities
are available for new
developments. Another
idea is to add incen-
tives within the com-
prehensive plan and
land development regu-
lations to encourage
affordable housing.
In the area of main-
taining its character,
the report recommends
that the city institute
design guidelines to
help bridge and create
a smooth transition
between its historic dis-
tricts and the more
modern development
on its outskirts.
In the area of
mobility, it recom-
mends that the city
adopt standards and
:strategies to encourage
different modes of
transportation, includ-
ing vehicular, foot and
bicycle traffic. As part
of the effort, the city
should provide for
mixed-use develop-
ments that are pedestri-
an and bicyclist friend-
ly and promote walking
and bicycling rather
than vehicular traffic,
which tends to lead to
sprawl.
In the area of eco-
nomic deyelopmneAt, the
report finds that; the
city,needs, to determine
its economic identity
and develop the strate-
gies to achieve its goal
and promote the kinds
of businesses and serv-
ices that keep residents
from going to
Thomasville and
Tallahassee to do their
shopping.
The report also
underscores the city's
need to develop and
promote tourism and
protect and preserve its
historic and environ-
mental resources as a
component of both
tourism and economic
development.
Related to the envi-
ronmental element and
in keeping with new
state requirements
stemming out of the
predicted impacts of
climate change, the
EAR encourages the
city's adoption of
strategies that pro-
mote resource conser-
vation, including the
creation of green
spaces, construction
of green buildings,
and reduction of
greenhouse gas emis-
sions from transporta-
tion.

A-Building


ing was precisely the kind of
project that the fiscally con-
strained money was intend-
ed to address. The fiscally
constrained money amounts
'to more than $700,000 that
the county receives annually
from the state for capital
improvement projects.
Ordained by the Legislature
for a 10-year period, the
money is supposed to run
out in another four years.
Joyner has emerged as a
strong protector of the fiscal-
ly constrained money and an
advocate of its conservative
use for only capital improve-
ment projects.
Following on Joyner's
comments, Boyd expressed
the need to act on the matter
quickly He pointed out that
the A-Building, which has
already undergone more
than a million dollars in ren-
ovations, continued to
remain vacant and was
beginning to deteriorate and
experience vandalism.. He
said an architect had esti-
mated that the cost to com-
plete the renovation would
be between $2 and $ 2'/ mil-
lion.
i"We need to put 'the
building back to public use
quickly," Boyd said.
He cited several factors
that he said underscored the
need to act urgently One of
these factors was the identi-
fication of the available
funding from the traffic cita-
tion surcharge, which
monies could be bonded to
finance the project, he said.
Another was that it was an
optimum time to take advarn-
tage of the money market,
given the low interest rates.
What's more, contractors
were hungry and willing to
bid on such projects at lower
than usual prices because of
the recession, which assured
for lower renovation costs.
And the federal stimulus
grant money was now avail-
able for such projects.
"I think the time has
never been better for such a
project," Boyd said.
Added Joyner: "We
probably have enough
money in the fiscally con-
strained money to move this
forward. I suggest we meet
with the School Board before
our next night meeting so
that we can act on this at our
next night meeting in
January"
Washington, who had
stood unrecognized at the
podium all this while, now
began audibly expressing
astonishment and disbelief
at the galloping pace of the
discussion, absent any.
School Board input.
"I'm in amazement to
hear the County
Commission making deci-
sions for the School Board,"
Washington said, when she
was finally recognized.
A former English
schoolteacher, Washington
used essay writing as the
metaphor to communicate
her point. When Reams had
made his initial presentation
to the School Board, his topic
sentence had been that the
two boards should work har-
moniously to bring the proj-
ect to fruition, she said. But
the details that followed were
not supporting the topic sen-
tence, as they should in a
good essay, she said.
Here the commission
was talking of appointing a
committee to meet with a
School Board appointed com-
mittee when School Board
Chairwoman Sandra
Saunders had distinctly indi-
cated that she wanted the
two boards to meet together,
she said. Not only that, but

cipitation through April
due to ongoing El Nino con-
ditions in the Pacific Ocean.
The district continues
to encourage voluntary
reductions in water use.
"The district urges all
water users to eliminate
wasteful and inefficient
water use," the report
states. "Water is conserved
by using the minimum
amount needed and by irri-
gating. only when necessary
and in the morning before
10 a.m. and in the evening
hours after 4 pm., when


lower temperature and
wind velocity reduce the
amount of water loss to
evaporation. The district
offers a variety of free
water conservation infor-
mation to the public via its
website and by request."
The SRWMD compiles

report using water resource
data collected from radar-
derived rainfall estimates,
groundwater and surface
water levels, and river
flows, among other vari-
ables.

Boyd was attempting to have
a School Board' committee
that excluded herself and
Saunders, she said.
S"Commissioner Hines
Boyd is ready to meet with
people he wants to meet with
to get things going his way,"
Washington said. "But don't
rush me. A little knowledge
is a dangerous thing. Let the
School Board do its work. We
haven't done any analysis or
study. You come to us in full
force. It's our building. Don't
push. I'm not the type of per-
son you can demand some-
-thing from. It needs to be
done in the right order and
this is not the right order. If
we don't follow the right pro-
cedures and protocol, we're
going to have a problem.
Let's do it right. Respect the
whole board. You've got two
School Board members and
you're trying to get a third to
swing the vote."
Boyd's response didn't
calm the waters.
"I think it's important we
don't confuse the process
with the product," Boyd said.
"It's time to do something
and the School Board hasn't
done anything. The building
doesn't belong to the School
Board. It belongs to the peo-
ple of Jefferson County...It's
a travesty to have the build-
ing unfinished after spend-
ing $1.5 million on it. The
quicker we move on it, the
better"
Washington picked up
on Boyd's point that the A-
Building was. not the proper-
ty of the School Board.
"It's .not the School
Board's property?"
Washington asked incredu-
lously
In fact, it wasn't, Boyd
asserted. The School Board
was merely the appointed
steward of the building,
which properly belonged to
the people, he said.
Washington said she
would make it a point to
inform the School Board at
its next meeting that it did
not own the A-Building but
was merely its steward. At
the same time, she planned
to introduce a motion to
appoint a special committee
to undertake a study and
assessment of all school dis-
trict properties, she said.
Joyner, in an attempt to
mollify Washington, suggest-
ed the two boards should
meet jointly "when the
School Board thinks it's
right to meet so we can hash
out the' problem and move
forward."
Commissioner Gene
Hall also came out in support
of a joint approach to a reso-
lution of the issue, as well as
supporting Washington's
proposal to undertake a
study of school district prop-
erties.
Boyd saw the discussion
taking an undesired direc-
tion.
"I'm concerned that this
is a recipe for foot dragging
and that we'll never get any-
where," he said.
No, Washington retort-
ed, what was likely to doom
the project, if anything
doomed it, was Boyd's rush.
Two citizens Chuck
Sarkisian and C.P. Miller -
spoke on the issue, with each
expressing a different point
of view.
Sarkisian came out in
opposition to the School
Board, which he said was not
living up to its stewardship
responsibilities by letting
the building "go downhill".
He charged that the School
Board should install locks
and provide 24-hour security
at the building to ensure it


wasn't further vandalized.
"That's what steward-
ship is all about," Sarkisian
said.
Miller, who later admit-
ted being "hot under the col-!
lar" when he first
approached the podium,
went after the County:
Commission. He said the
commission was treating the
School Board as if it were an
inferior body As a taxpayer,
he appreciated 'that the
School Board was taking its
responsibility seriously and
considering its options
before jumping into a deci-
sion, he said. He thought the
County Commission needed
to "settle down" and tone
dovrn the rhetoric. What if
the School Board tried to
force the County
Commission to do some-
thing with one of its build-
ings? Would the commission
appreciate such a tactic?
"I think if you slow it
down, you'll be more produc-
tive," Miller said.
The matter didn't end
there, however
Miller returned to the
podium near the conclusion
of the three-hour meeting to'
revisit the issue. He apolo-
gized for "being hot under
the collar and not being him-
self earlier." Miller described
himself as an ambassadorial
type who would take up for
either board, if he thought
the particular board was
being unfairly attacked. His
point was that the School
Board had made leaps and
bounds in improving the
educational situation in
Jefferson County and the
County Commission needed
to recognize these accom-
plishments, he said. At the,
least, the commission need-
ed to be "humble".
'At the end of the' day,
you need three votes," Miller
said. "You need to do it in a
more humble way Just tone
it down."
Boyd had the last word
on the issue Thursday
evening.
"I feel it's important we
keep in mind that the prod-
uct is more important than
the process," Boyd said.
"Nothing happens unless
three members of the board
agree that it happens. But
also, nothing happens unless
someone goes out there and
shakes the tree. It's appropri-
ate for any member of this
board to talk to any other
elected official. If anyone's
.sensitivity got offended, I
apologize. But I don't apolo-
gize for the process because I
feel that's what needs to be
done."
Boyd added a postscript
to his comments via email on
Friday morning.
"The A-Building is one
of our community's greatest
historical and architectural
gems," Boyd emailed the
News. "Its restoration to
public use it too impor-
tant to succumb to paral-
ysis by analysis or to be
kicked around like a
political football."
The two-story A-
Building dates from 1852
and enjoys the distinc-
tion of being Florida's
first brick schoolhouse
and the only one still
standing. Two wings were
added to the original
building and columns
were erected at the north
and south entrances in
1915. The building was
vacated in 1992. and has
since undergone major
repairs and renovation to
restore and preserve it,
but it still needs much
work.

Another longtime
city business has been
the victim of the econo-
my and is being forced
to close its doors and go
out of business,
Monticello Printers,
located at 165 W Walnut
Street.
Monticello Printers
has been owned by
Lewis and Susan Getch
for the past 40 years,
prior to that, the busi-
ness was owned by
Susan's parents, Carr
and Flo Settle, who pur-
chased the establish-
ment and the Monticello
News in 1958 when they
moved here from south
Florida, and sold
Monticello Printers to
the Getch's in 1972.
The business, which
was located near the
Presbyterian Church
was relocated to its pres-
ent location, which had.
been serving as the local
Winn Dixie until they
relocated'to the present
day location on South
Jefferson Street, in
about 1979
Susan worked at the
printers until her retire-
ment in 2008 and Lewis
and their daughter,
Rebecca Kelly, have run
the shop since. "He
loves working and is
very devoted to the busi-
ness," said Susan. "In 40
years, he has missed
-very few days even com-
ing in after he broke his
arm and after he had his
heart surgery
"With the economy
the way it is now, he has
thought of everything to
try and keep the busi-
ness going, but it just
can't. be done," said
Susan.
But .according to
Lewis, the economy has
become too much for the
small hometown "mom
and pop" business,
which has been forced to
the point of going out of
business as of Dec. 31,
2009. Until then, they
have marked everything
20 percent off and sell-
ing the equipment,
donating the antique
equipment to a museum
or historical society,
shelving, desks and
other fixtures are also
slated to be sold. The
current business hours
are Monday, Wednesday
and Friday, 8:30 a.m.
until 5 p.m.

years, they have printed
almost everything imag-
inable, other than books,
including the program
for the JCKC racetrack,
the Watermelon Festival
booklet, area school
sporting programs,
numerous graduation
programs, tickets, busi-
ness cards, wedding
announcements,
engagement announce-
ments and all kinds of
related printing over the
years, and Lewis has
kept a copy of every job
the company has had
and the copies are kept
in file areas.
Lewis recalls that
there have been four
types of type setting,
hand-set type, line type,
copy graphic and now,
computers, all of which,
he has done. "And com-
puters keep going and
all the others have been
phased out," said Lewis.
He recalls beginning
with a 1920 model
Linotype for the line
type method.
He said he used to
set type for the newspa-
per, but now it's all done
by computers. "With the
economy what it is, and
the technology and the
times, we're just not
making it," said Lewis.
"We haven't gotten the

Rev. Dr Dean Spivey, pastor
Elizabeth Baptist Church
Christmas is the time of year
when we celebrate the coming of
Our Lord to deliver us from our
sins. God gave His all. He gave His
Son. Yet every year we see less and
less of the true meaning of
Christmas. And each year we see
less and less contentment.
I heard a child the other day
complaining and whining because
the gift he received was not what
he wanted. It seems that many
adults aren't much different. Some
of them are not satisfied with their
jobs. Some aren't content with
their spouse. Others aren't happy
about life in general. As a nation
we have more now than most peo-
ple will have over their entire life-
time. Yet few seem content.
Our God has given His all and
since He gave His Son then surely
there isn't any blessing that He
will withhold from us. Rom. 8:32
This being true then why aren't
more people content. I believe it is
a poor theology We do not think
about God as we ought. While I
don't have the space to give a theol-
ogy lesson I want to give you some-
thing that I ran across a few years
ago. It is a list of some sound theo-

Naomi And


A gospel music spec-
tacular will be taking
place at Yogi Bear's
Jellystone Park in
Madison, FL Saturday,
Jan. 2, featuring gospel
music legend Naomi and
the Segos. The concert is
free admission, but a
love offering will be
received during the con-
cert.
Originally known as
The Sego Brothers and
Naomi, this group began
gaining exposure in the
late 1950's. James Sego
hosted a popular televi-
sion program on WMAZ-
TV in Macon, GA. along
with his wife Naomi and
brothers WR and Lamar,
It was during this time
they traveled to
Nashville, TN. and
recorded their first hit
that would gain them
national recognition, "Is
My Lord Satisfied With
Me." However, super-
stardom came in 1962
when The Sego Brothers

Jones on how to be content. Read
them and be content. They are
based on Phil. 4:11 I have learned
in whatever state I am to be con-
tent.
Conditions are always chang-
ing; therefore I must obviously not
be dependent upon conditions.
What matters supremely is
my soul and my relationship to
God.
God is concerned about me as.
my Father, and nothing happens

The Segos


and Naomi became the
first group in history to
record and sell one mil-
lion records .with the
song, "Sorry, I Never
Knew You." The rest of
the 1960's saw them tour-
ing the globe with many
other hit songs. During
the 1970's their populari-
ty increased with per-
formances on the popu-
lar TV show "The
Gospel Singing Jubilee."
Perhaps one of their
biggest songs came

to me apart from God. Even the
very hairs of my head are num-
bered. I must never forget that.
God's will and God's ways are
a great mystery, but I know that
whatever He wills or permits is
of necessity for my good.
Every situation in life is the
unfolding of some manifestation
of God's love and goodness.
Therefore my business is to look
for this peculiar manifestation of
God's goodness and kindness and
to be prepared for surprises and
blessings because His ways are
not my ways, neither His
thoughts my thoughts.
I must regard circumstances
and conditions, not in and of
themselves therefore but as a
Part of God's dealings with me in
the work of perfecting my soul
and bringing me to final perfec-
tion.
Whatever my circumstances
may be at this present moment
they are only temporary, they are
only passing, and they can never
rob me of the joy and the glory
that ultimately await me with
Christ. I am content with my
church family
I am content with my church
family. Phil. 1:6

name change to Naomi
and The Segos. Vernon
passed away in October
1998.
Now, in their fifth
decade of Gospel Music
ministry, this group con-
tinues to press forward
for the cause of Christ.
Traveling some 200 dates
a year all over the United


States and Canada, the
message of this group
remains strong and pow-
erful. Perhaps it is each
group member's own
personal experience
with God that continues
to drive their excellence
in performance and min-
istry Naomi and The
Segos is a legendary
name in Gospel Music.
With their traditional
sounds, musical excel-
lence, and sincerity, they
produce a message that
will lead people to Christ.
Members of the,
group include Naomi
Sego Reader, Scott
Spangler, Jerry Gill, and
Bryant Thigpen.

tion about dates and

Porch de Salomon's
constant flow of work
and outreach in
Guatemala continued
as the year drew to a
close: Casa Bernabe
Orphanage Group: We
enjoyed hosting and
funding the Performing
Arts Group from this
Guate City orphanage
for the fifth straight
year. They visited
numerous churches in
the Lake Atitlan basin
with their effective live
music/drama/ circus
act/life story outreach.
As before, several of
these children had
never been away from
the capital; the visit was
a real reward for them
(www.casabernabe.org).
We thank the donor
family who underwrote
the costs.'
Cleft-palate Baby
Relief: Three new cleft-
palate children
(Bartolo, Reily and
Wilmer) entered our
relief "mix" in
November. It was a
blessing to receive these
referrals and see our
team come together to
meet immediate needs
and provide hope for
help and corrective sur-
gery for these little
ones. We appreciate the
on-going cooperative
effort with Jane Bartel
and Sheri
Kretzschmar's respec-
tive ministries.

BRYAN
Bryan (7) was two
months old when his
single mother left him
and his older brother
with a friend and never
returned. This friend,
Marta, has been a won-
derful surrogate mother
to these boys (even with
children of her own and
a terribly sick hus-
band). Marta describes
Bryan as a very good
boy who's eager to con-
tinue his schooling with
the help of a Beca schol-
arship for 2010. Contact
us if you're interested
in helping!

from crippling arthritis.
Porch provides weekly
groceries for this family
Before that, the mother
saw the falsity of witch-
craft and is seeking a
relationship with the
one true God.
Leidy was unable to
afford school in 2009.
She worked as a domes-
tic, not for money, but
for tortillas, salt, sugar
and such for her family.
We hope to provide her
a scholarship for 2010

    Dear Santa:

    * \.oVe, bCPO





    ,iyLu\d V\\'^4

    ab.u \ s e4,


    cA ^ettek ^OiM fosus egg bout Chksttma9


    It has come to my attention that many of you are
    upset that folks are taking my name out of the season.
    Maybe you've forgotten that I wasn't actually born
    during this time of the year and that it was some of
    your predecessors who decided to celebrate my birth-
    day on what was actually a time of pagan festival.
    Although I do appreciate being remembered anytime.
    How I personally feel about this celebration can
    probably be most easily understood by those of you
    who have been blessed with children of your own. I
    don't care what you call the day If you want to cele-
    brate my birth, just GET ALONG AND LOVE ONE
    ANOTHER.
    Now, having said that, let me go on. If it bothers
    you that the town in which you live doesn't allow a
    scene depicting my birth, then just get rid of a couple
    of santas and snowmen and put in a small Nativity
    Scene on your own front lawn. If all my followers did
    that there wouldn't be any need for such a scene on the
    town square because there would be many of them all
    around town.
    Stop worrying about the fact that people are call-
    ing the tree a holiday tree, instead of a Christmas tree.
    It was I who made all trees. You can remember me
    anytime you see any tree. Decorate a grape vine if you
    wish: I actually spoke of that one in a teaching,
    explaining who I am in relation to you and what each
    of our tasks were. If you have forgotten that one, look
    up John 15:1-8.
    If you want to give me a present in remembrance
    of my birth here is my wish list. Choose something
    from it: Instead of writing protest letters objecting to
    the way my birthday is being celebrated, write letters
    of love and hope to soldiers away from home. They are
    terribly afraid and lonely this time of year. I know,
    they tell Me all the time.


    Visit someone in a nursing home. You don't have
    to know them personally They just need to know that
    someone cares about them.
    Instead of writing the President complaining
    about the wording on the cards his staff sent out this
    year, why don't you write and tell him that you'll be
    praying for him and his family this year. Then follow
    up. It will be nice hearing from you again.
    Instead of giving your children a lot of gifts you
    can't afford and they don't need, spend time with
    them. Tell them the story of my birth, and why I came
    to live with you down here. Hold them in your arms
    and remind them that I love them.
    Pick someone that has hurt you in the past and
    forgive him or her.
    Did you know that someone in your town will
    attempt to take their own life this season because they
    feel so alone and hopeless? Since you don't know who
    that person is, try giving everyone you meet a warm
    smile; it could make the difference.
    Instead of nit-picking about what the retailer in
    your town calls the holiday, be patient with the people
    who work there. Give them a warm smile and a kind
    word. Even if they aren't allowed to wish you a
    "Merry Christmas" that doesn't keep you from wish-
    ing them one. Then stop shopping there on Sunday If
    the store didn't make so much money on that day
    they'd close and let their employees spend the day at
    home with their families.
    If you really want to make a difference, support a
    missionary, especially one who takes my love and
    Good News to those who have never heard my name.
    Here's a good one. There are individuals and
    whole families in your town who not only will have no
    "Christmas" tree, but neither will they have any pres-
    ents to give nor receive. If you don't know them, buy


    some food and a few gifts and give them to the
    Salvation Army or some other charity which believes
    in me and they will make the delivery for you.
    Finally if you want to make a statement about
    your belief in and loyalty to me, then behave like a
    Christian. Don't do things in secret that you wouldn't
    do in my presence. Let people know by your actions
    that you are one of mine.
    Don't forget; I am God and can take care of myself.
    Just love me and do what I have told you to do. I'll take
    care of all the rest. Check out the list above and get to
    work; time is short. I'll help you, but the ball is now in
    your court. And do have a most blessed Christmas
    with all those whom you love and remember:.

    .or"


    Jefferson Elementary School second graders enjoyed a "super celebration" shar-
    ing their interpretation of the play The Incredible Reindeer! presented during the
    December PTO meeting held in the JES media center.
    The story goes that on one Christmas Eve not too long ago, Santa's elves were
    faced with quite a predicament. However, thanks to the superhero strength of Mighty
    Moose (Marquelius Hawkins), the magic antlers of Hyper Speed (Khalil Robinson), the
    super math and science skills of Robo Guy (Zachary Burk), and the super laser vision
    of Laser Squint (Jamichael Steen), the asteroid headed right for the North Pole was
    turned into "asteroid dust" and the world was saved.
    However, the dilemma did not stop there.The winter holiday evening was cloaked
    in a fog as thick as pea soup, and sadly Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer was home
    wrapped in a blanket nursing a horrible cold.
    Luckily, Robo Guy came to the rescue and saved the day by guiding Santa's sleigh
    with his bionic powerbeam. So, if you happen to notice that the Christmas Eve sky is
    especially bright this year, you might want to share this narrative with your friends.
    Or better yet, tell them to drop by Jefferson Elementary and ask a second grader
    to tell them the real story of The Incredible Reindeer. .

    It-
    Jefferson Elementary School students unite each year to express their artistic tal-
    ents and creativity in designing ornaments for the tree located in the JES Media Center.
    Visitors, volunteers, students, and their families pause as they enter the main office
    and are greeted by the welcoming branches which hold ornaments from every class.
    Students passing by cheerfully exclaim, "I made that red striped stocking,' or "The
    snowman near the top is mine,' or "Do you see my sparkly silver bell?" as they proudly
    point out their individual handiwork representative of the season.
    Visitors are invited to check in at the main office to check out the children's artwork
    and to share in the holiday spirit.
