John Tolbert Vann,
IV, 41, of Jefferson
County, was convicted in
court Jan. 25 on the
charge of lewd and las-
civious molestation of a
child under 12, and sen-


tenced to serve four
years in the Florida De-
partment of Corrections
(DOC), followed by 10
years of sex offender
probation.
The conviction
stems from an incident
on March 21, 2008, when
(now former) Deputy


Chris Smith received a
call from Department of
Children and Families
caseworker Megan
Miller, in reference to
the molestation of a girl
well under the age of 12.
Miller stated that

STwo Men Seriously


SInjured In Crash


This 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe SUV was totaled after the driver swerved to avoid hit-
ting a deer and crashed into a tree along 1-10 at the 222 mile marker. 5 a.m. Jan. 28.

Staff Writer
Two men were seriously injured in
an early morning single-vehicle crash
last week.
Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Bill
Grubbs reported that at 5 a.m., Thursday,
Jan. 28, Christopher M. Maley, 22, of Pen-
sacola, was driving a 2001 Chevrolet
Tahoe SUV eastbound on 1-10 at the 222
mile marker, traveling at the posted
speed limit.
Anthony Scapecchi, 24, also of Pen-
sacola, was riding in the back of the vehi-
cle. asleep on a mattress.
Grubbs noted that it was still dark
and there were spots of dense, patchy fog.
Maley reported that a deer ran from
the median, southbound, into the path of
Maley's oncoming vehicle. The driver
took evasive action to avoid colliding
with the deer, swerved the steering wheel


to the left, he drove across the median
and across both westbound lanes of traf-
fic.
The vehicle traveled down into the
tree line and the front of Maley's vehicle
collided with a tree on the north side of
the Interstate. The vehicle then spun 180
degrees counterclockwise and came to a
rest facing south.
Maley was wearing a seatbelt, how-
ever, his face was severely lacerated
when the air bag deployed. Scapecchi
suffered compound fractures of the left
leg, right knee and ankle.
Both were transported to Tallahas-
see Memorial Hospital for treatment of
their injuries. The vehicle was totaled
and no charges were filed.
Assisting FHP on the scene were
Leon County troopers, Jefferson County
deputies, and Jefferson County EMS.
The vehicle was removed by County Line
Towing in Greenville.


molested the child. Ac-
cording to Miller, the
child's mother became
suspicious when the
child told her that Vann
had tickled her on her fe-
male private part and
she did not like it.

SETTLED LANDFILL.

& ENGINEER ISSUES
Savings To County May Be Significant
LAZARO ALEMAN
Monticello News
Senior Staff Writer
After months of wrangling over the selection of a
civil and an environmental engineer and renegotiat-
ing the landfill monitoring services contract as part
of the brew, the three interrelated issues appear may
finally be coming to a conclusion and the county may
end up a winner after all.
May is the operative word here, as the fees for
both the civil and environmental engineering serv-
ices have yet to be negotiated and all the contracts to
be signed. But the good news is that on Thursday,
Jan. 21, the Jefferson County Commission unani-
mously voted to negotiate a contract with Preble-Rish
Inc. for the county's civil engineering services; voted
4-1 to negotiate a contract with Darabi and Associates
for t he landfill engineering services; and voted 3-2 to
split the actual landfill monitoring services contract

County Seeking Extra Money

For Dills Road Improvements
LAZARO ALEMAN
M onticello News
Senior Staff Writer
Acting on the recommendation of consultant en-
gineer Frank Darabi, the Jefferson County Commis-
sion on Thursday evening, Jan. 21, approved a
request to the Florida Department of Transportation
(FDOT) for additional funding to upgrade Dills Road.
Darabi told commissioners that he had inspected
both Dills and Nash roads and had identified addi-
t ional work that needed to be done on the former road
relative to the widening and drainage improvements.
The good news, he said, was that the Nash Road proj-
ect would cost less than expected, leaving free about
$100,000 or $120,000 of the allocated money.
Darabi said he had talked to the FDOT, which is
funding both projects, about the possibility of trans-
ferring the extra money from the Nash Road project
to the Dills Road project and the state agency ap-
peared amenable to the idea.
He said his latest assessment of Dills Road indi-
cated that it was in need of much drainage work, in-
cluding the installation and extension of the culverts
and box culverts. Depending on the amount of
money that was transferred from the Nash Road proj-
ect, Darabi said Dills Road could possibly be widened
to as much as 24 feet. The road is currently 18 feet
wide.
"I'm asking you for authority to ask the FDOT to
transfer the unspent money on the Nash Road proj-
ect to the Dills Road project," Darabi said.
If the FDOT approves the transfer, as expected, it
will bring the total cost of resurfacing and widening
Dills Road to more than $1.4 million up some

County And Region Receive Much Rainfall In December


LAZARO ALEMAN
Monticello News
Senior Staff Writer
If it's your thinking that
Jefferson County received a
slew of rain in December,
you're exactly right, according
to the most recent hydrologic
conditions report that the
Suwannee River Water Manage-
ment District (SRWMD) re-
leased for December.
Indeed, the statistics show
that Monticello received 8.45

inches of rainfall during, the
month, the highest December
total since 1964, and accumula-
tions were generally high
across the county, as well as in
Madison and Hamilton coun-
ties. Overall, the district aver-
aged 5.73 inches in December,
which is 180 percent of the long-
term monthly average of 3.14
inches, according to the
SRWMD.

but even in these counties, the
rainfall was above average, ac-
cording to the SRWMD.
The district reports, "Rain-
fall for the past 12 month was
54.87 inches, nearly equal to the
long-term average of 54.68
inches."
"The 12-month surplus was
0.19 inches, an improvement of

Tim Tebow's Commercial Is T 1Fu lAaT
Family Friendly Leave It Alone _______
Tim Tebow's Super famous Janet Jackson's ders, rapes, robberies, Serafin Roldan, Ph.D., Director
Bowl commercial, which "wardrobe malfunc- home invasions, and ffo Publc L
will air Sunday during tion," male erectile dys- child abuse. We have JefferOn County Public Library


the game, has seemed to
spark many a controver-
sy. The commercial,
funded by Focus On The
Family, will feature
Tebow and his mother,
Pam, delivering an anti-
abortion message. And
so the fight began to
run it or not to run it.
CBS says they will
run it. Kudos to CBS for
not giving in, and back-
ing down, to activist
groups.
This commer-
cial/controversy, to me,
is not about pro-life or
pro-choice. To me, it is
all about a man, and
group, that are actually
trying to run a commer-
cial that is family-
friendly/family-orient-
ed and the organizations
that are trying to stop it.
The funniest quote I've
read yet is from Jehmu
Greene, president of the
Women's Media Center,
"An ad that uses sports
to divide rather than to
unite has no place in the
biggest national sports
event of the year an
event designed to bring
Americans together."
Too Funny. Let's
visit past commercials/
shows from previous
Super Bowl Sunday's.
There was the ever-


functional commercials,
GoDaddycom commer-
cials, Victoria's Secret
commercials, and many
more non-family orient-
ed sexy/swanky com-
mercials. So my ques-
tion would be, "How do
those commercials
bring Americans togeth-
er?"
Imagine.... A family
is sitting together
watching the Super
Bowl, a Viagra commer-
cial comes on, and then
your 10-year-old daugh-
ter begins to ask you
what male erectile dys-
function is. And, yet,
there are organizations
that are trying to get an
anti-abortion commer-
cial banned? Again I say,
this has nothing to do
with pro-life or pro-
choice. The fact of the
matter is, in today's soci-
ety, it is scary to allow
children to turn on the
television at all and see
and hear what filth is on
there. And for once, they
are finally airing some-
thing that your 10-year-
old daughter CAN watch
and still we have groups
that are going to com-
plain.
The world, today, is
already going to hell,
with the senseless mur-


enough to worry about
just in thinking of our
safety, and our family's
safety The most impor-
tant thing we should be
concentrating on is our
souls, and our after-life.
Why, oh why, are so
many people Worried
about a "good" commer-
cial? Why are there so
many groups, and
forces, trying to destroy
the little "good" that we
have left in this world?
If you don't like
what you see on the tele-
vision.... Turn the chan-
nel or cut it off. That's
what I do during all the
sexy commercials and
television shows that I
don't care to see, nor do
I want my teenage
daughters to see.
If you don't want to
watch Tim Tebow, then
don't watch him, but
don't think you can
mandate to the rest of
the world what we will
watch and/or not
watch. I respect Tebow
as an athlete, but most
of all as a man who has
a. good moral back-
ground, good moral
ethics, and is NOT
afraid to stand up for
them.
Until then..... I'll see
you around the town

will begin showing out-
standing films begin-
ning on Tuesday evening
February 9th at 5:30 p.m.
We will be showing top
films from all genres to
the Adult public. So far,
there have been 42 titles
selected which well be
run during the next 6
months. Suggestions of
outstanding films that
you would like to include
are welcome.
The films will be
projected through a
recently purchased pro-

This equipment is an
ongoing effort of the
Library to transform
our community room
into a place where local
government agencies
and groups can make
presentations to the pub-
lic.
While working at the
University of Florida, I


came up with a list of
some 42 film titles, seri-

required students to
think critically and pro-
duce film critiques and
analysis of specific
aspects and issues, i.e.,
exploring broader social
implications and rele-
vancy in our contempo-

Our plan at JCPL is
to have a brief discus-
sion period of about 15
minutes after each film
in which any member of
the audience can partici-
pate and evaluate the
format and content of
the film and treat and
discuss with liberty
such aspects as theme,
character, dramatic
action, setting, plot and
scenography.
The goal of this proj-
ect is to have the com-
munity share its

spiritual issues that
each film may encapsu-
late and to explore its
relevancy to contempo-
rary culture and society.
Film like literature can
be utilized to broaden
our perspective in, life
and offer the space and
time for critical think-
ing and analysis.
Some of the first
movies which will be
shown are the following:
Schindler's List (1993),
The Counterfeiters
(2007), Defiance (2008),

Reader Remembers The Good Old Days


Good to have you
back Tracie.
Congratulations! I too
am a transplanted city
girl (47 years ago.) I
would like to share with
you my definition of a
farm. It's a place where
two hard working
Christian parents raised
nine children while
working the land. It's a
place where a son, after
raising three children of
his own, can return to
the life he loves. It's a
place where he and his
three remaining sisters
can come together to
remember the GOOD
OLD DAYS. A place
where he grows that lit-
tle garden you wrote
about (except it's not so
little,) and he freely
shares with friends and


family It's a place where
children, grandchildren,
and great grandchildren
from places like Orlando
and Tampa, can come
and marvel at poppas
"crops," play on the
neighbor's haybales, ride
on their horses, fish in
the ponds, and even ride
on poppa's average trac-
tor. They get all excited
about how "SMART" the
cows are when they are
moved from one pasture
to another. They love the
sunsets and are fright-
ened by the coyote howls
at night. They return
home with bags of pop-
pas veggies, canned by
gran'ma, just for them!
And, lots of stories about
their visit to the "farm."
We may not be com-
mercial farmers, heck


this place is not even as
active as it was when we
first came back, but it is
a place where Christian
morals are taught, mem-
ories are made, and love
grows. As far as I am con-
cerned, these are the
most. important seeds
anybody could sow. My
husband is a retired mail
carrier and does not call
himself a farmer, but
when I watch that 70-
year-old man plow, plant,
fertilize, hoe, and worry
when we don't get
enough rain, or we get
too much, that's what I
see. That might not be
Webster's definition, but
it is mine. I love my farm
and farmer, and I am
proud of them both.
Respectfuly yours,
SAnda &qi&i&

port military personnel,

your Auxiliary's dedica-
tion to supporting the
members of HHC-57th
ESB. Please forward one
certificate to your adopt-
ed Unit to remind them of
your support. We ask you
to display your certificate
withy pride.
The VFW has always
been concerned with
building a strong rela-
tionship with our armed
forces and the men and
women that serve out
great nation. Providing


support to our armed
forces today ids more
important than any other
time in our nation's histo-
ry.
Again, thank you for
becoming involved with a
worthwhile and reward-
ing program.: Sincerely,
Michael G. Penny,
Director, National
Military Service.

nation. December 11,

Commander-in Chief -
Jan Tittle, National
President.
In Barrington's
remarks during the meet-
ing, she expressed that
she was not in the field,
but many of her unit
members are and they are
very underprivileged in
getting goodies and good
news; and when they
receive them at the post,
they share them in the
field. She also asked the
Ladies to solicit other
military individuals from
this area, whether state-
side or abroad. So, if you
know or have family in
the military, drop Chicola
or Madison a line or call
850-210-7090.

Harris was found
guilty, Wednesday, Sept. 23,
2009, of aggravated bat-
tery on a person over 65,
following a jury of three
men and three women
found him guilty after
about five minutes of
deliberation.
The crime is a first-
degree felony and Harris
looked at possibly 30 years
in the State Department of
Corrections.
Harris, who opted to
serve as his own attorney
during the trial about a
montl# and a half prior,
had Public Defender Davis
Revel as a stand-by attor-
ney and Assistant State
Attorney Neil Wade
served as the attorney for
the prosecution.

victim following her
injuries and to the severi-
ty of her injuries, includ-
ing fractures; and the vic-

time of the incident, who
testified to what happened
that night.
The trial stems back
to a late-night incident on
January 30, 2009, Deputy
Logan Wilcox was dis-

interview with the child,
she found positive indica-

ed the child.
On March 27, 2008,
Smith confronted Vann
about the allegations
made against him by the
child, and Smith told
Vann that the child was
very descriptive about the


molestation, giving Smith
details that a child that
age should not be able to
recount, unless they had
been experienced. Smith
also advised Vann that the
child was adamant that
the molestation had taken
place.
Vann denied the
charge, stating that he did
not touch the child in the
private area. But as the
interview continued,
Vann did admit that he
molested the child.

had stopped in the drive-
way at a locked gate.
Wilcox asked him how he
was doing and he respond-
ed, Not good." The deputy
asked him why and Harris
stated "I just beat my
mother and you need to
take me to jail."
Wilcox asked how
badly the victim was hurt
and he responded, "Pretty
bad." The deputy placed
Harris in handcuffs and
put him in his patrol car to
detain him, and he called
for EMS. Wilcox climbed
the locked gate and
entered the residence to
check on the victim.
He. found her in her
bedroom, lying under the
covers on her bed. The
deputy reported that she
was obviously very fright-
Sened, that she was shaking
and .very upset. Wilcox
said .she was so distressed
that he had to identify
himself as a law enforce-
ment officer because she
thought her was her son
returning.
Wilcox reported that
there was blood on her
body and clothing and he
asked her if she was okay,
and she asked if her son
was gone. The deputy told
her that he was in his
patrol car and she stated
that Harris had beaten her
and her body was hurting
and the deputy assured
her that EMS was on the
way
Wilcox asked the vic-
tim to describe what had
happened and she said she
had asked him to turn off
the TV in his room at 11
p.m. and it made him mad
and he came out of his
bedroom and started curs-
ing her.
She stated that he
then punched her in the
left side of her ribs, on the


left shoulder, the head,
and on her legs, as she sat
in her chair in the living
room. She said that she
asked Harris several
times to stop punching
her but he kept beating
her.
The victim said she
tried to escape to her bed-
room after being thrown
over .a chair by Harris.
She stated that he had fol-
lowed her and made her
lie down on the bed, with
her body straight and
when she complied,
Harris started beating her
with a broom handle.
She told the deputy
that Harris continued
beating her for about 30
minutes. Wilcox asked
her how she knew that
and she said there was a
clock in the room next to
the statuette of Jesus and
she kept watching that
during the incident. She
added that Harris had also
stated that she was lucky
that Jesus was in the
room.
The victim said
Harris walked out of her
bedroom after he stopped
beating her and she
heard him go into the liv-
ing room and call the law
to come and arrest him.
Wilcox photographed her
injuries, the scene and
collected the broom as
evidence. The victim
was transported to
Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital for treatment of
her injuries.
Harris was arrested
and charged with battery
(domestic), the charge
was later raised to aggra-
vated battery of a person
over 65. Bond was with-
held and he remained at
the county jail from the
time of his arrest until
he was sentenced.

$700,000 from the $776,208
low bid that was originally
submitted to resurface the
road.
Initially projected to
cost a little more than a
million for the resurfacing
alone, based on the con-
struction industry' pre-
vailing prices at the time
of the estimation, the
FDOT budgeted $1.3 mil-
lion for the project under
its Small County Road
Assistance Program
(SCRAP). That estimate,
however, was made long
before the recession hit
and contractors became
desperate for work. The
result was that contractors
bid the project much lower


than expected. The low bid
for Dills Road, in fact, was
$776,208, nearly $600,000
less than the budgeted
amount. Because SCRAP
funding allows only for
resurfacing, however, the
extra money could not be
used for the widening.
Presented with an
opportunity to widen the
road for an additional
$209,000 at the county's
cost, commissioners decid-
ed on Dec. 17 to forego the
widening and simply go
with the FDOT-funded
resurfacing.

"He (FDOT District 3

commissioners on Jan. 7.
"He authorized us to use
every dime of the money
because once it comes
back to him, he can't use it
for anything else and
money won't be available

residence in reference to
domestic battery.
Reportedly, according to
evidence collected at the
scene by deputies, Clint
Eastwood Morris, 20, of
Monticello, using a closed
fist, had hit his three-months
pregnant ex-girlfriend sever-
al times in the upper body
and head, knocking her to
the floor.
Morris allegedly picked
up a table leg off of the floor
and used it to hit her in the
head and body The victim
stated that he had dragged
her by her clothing to the
back porch and started kick-
ing her in the stomach again
and stating, "I'll kill that
baby
The victim said she
attempted to call 911 on her
cell phone but Morris
grabbed the phone and
snatched the battery out of it
and threw it down.
Deputies reported that


the victim had red marks on
her face, lumps on the back of
her head and cuts to her bot-
tom lip and lower eye. A war-
rant was issued for Morris'
arrest charging him with
aggravated battery (domes-
tic) and tampering with a
witness.
On Jan. 26, deputies
were dispatched to an east
Clark Street residence in ref-
erence to a physical alterca-
tion that had already hap-
pened.
The complainant stated
that Morris had hit the vic-
tim from the previous inci-
dent a month prior. Upon
arrival deputies made con-
tact with the victim who stat-
ed that her sister came to her
previously in the day and
told her that Morris had
tried to talk to a family mem-
ber of the victim.
She stated that she saw
Morris outside the front of
the building and


Commission


between Darabi and
Associates and Restoration
Assistance, Inc. (RAI), a
local company
Some caveats and a lit-
tle history may be helpful
here for better apprecia-
tion of the significance of
the separate decisions.
Understanding that
the engineering fees for
Preble-Rish as civil engi-
neer and Darabi and
Associates as landfill engi-
neer must still be negotiat-
ed, it's still worthwhile to
note that as a result of
commissioners' action on
Thursday, the new cost for
monitoring and maintain-
ing the closed landfill on
Tyson Road will be $49,840,
versus the $218,000 that it
was costing previously
How did the $49,840
come about? '
It stems from the com-
mission's decision to
divide the work into three
separate tasks and assign-
ing the tasks to different
contractors. Task 1, as
described in the Request
for Proposal (RFP), entails
periodically monitoring
the ground and surface
water at the closed landfill
on Tyson Road. Task 2
entails monitoring the gas
at the same landfill on a
quarterly basis. And task 3
entails fertilizing and
mowing the landfill site,
removing trees, cleaning
the drainage ditches, and
maintaining the access
road, among other upkeep
responsibilities.
The way the commis-
sion divided the contract:
Darabi & Associates .is
responsible for tasks 1 and
2 based on the low bids of
$19,900 and $2,940 respec-
tively; and RAI is responsi-
ble for task 3 for the low bid
of $27,000, for a total of
$49,840. Interestingly,
Darabi and Associates' bid
for task 3 was $156,770 and
the company's total bid for
doing all three tasks was
$179,610, versus RAI's total
bid of $67,000 for all three
tasks.
The decision to award
the contract on a split basis
was a 3-2 vote for each of
the individual tasks, with
Commissioners Hines
Boyd and Stephen Fulford
voting in the negative each
time. One explanation for
the dissenting votes
stemmed from Boyd' argu-
ment that dividing the con-
tract between contractors
would open the door for
potential conflicts and fin-
ger pointing if something
went wrong. Another was
Fulford's point that task 3
was too inclusive and that
the county could realize a
bigger savings by taking
upon itself some of the
activities.
Immediately upon
task 3 coming up for a vote,
Taylor County Attorney
Conrad Bishop, represent-
ing Darabi and Associates,
raised the question
whether RAI could provide
all the required services
for $27,000, especially given
the need for liability insur-
ance and the fact that RAI
was volunteering to pre-
pare the biennial engineer-


approached him and asked
him if he had tried talking
to her family member. He
reportedly stated no and
told her not to talk to him.
At that point, Morris
allegedly hit the victim in
her left eye and cheek.
Bystanders broke up the
altercation and the -com-
plainant called JCSO.
The victim described
what Morris was wearing
and while the victim was
talking with deputies, she
advised that Morris was
walking toward them.
Deputies approached
Morris who met with the
description given and
Morris was arrested and
charged with an outstand-
ing warrant for aggravated
battery (domestic); and tam-
pering with a witness; and
battery (domestic). A total
bond of $15,000 was set and
he remained at the County
Jail Feb. 1.

ing reports, even though
the RFP didn't specify the
latter as a requirement.
County officials'
response was that all stipu-
lations were clearly spelled
out in the RFP and that
they had to assume that
contractors understood the
requirements. Otherwise,
a contract could not pro-
ceed. The issue, more or
less, was left hanging.
Worthy of note,
Darabi and Associates had
the landfill contract for the
last 13 years and were last-
ly charging the county
$218,000 annually for the
service. In fact, it was pre-
cisely the $218,000 annual
charge that caught
Commissioner Hines
Boyd's attention and
prompted him to push for
the reevaluation of the
costs, whichi'he considered
exorbitant, outrageous and
unwarranted! Worthy of
note also, Clerk of Court
records show that between
2001 and the present, the
county paid Darabi and
Associates $3,680,160 for
engineering services, of
which $1,460,233 was for
engineering services
directly tied to the landfill.
How does one explain
the $168,160 difference
between the $218,000 previ-
ously being charged and
the $49,840 that the service
will now cost?
One possible explana-
tion is that the engineering
services have yet to be fac-
tored into the costs equa-
tion. Remember, county
officials must still negoti-
ate fee schedules with
Preble-Rish and Darabi
and Associates. But even
so, county officials offer
assurances that the service
will be far cheaper in
future, even with the engi-
neer's fees. They also
vouch that they will be
more vigilant henceforth,
so that a contract doesn't
go for extended periods
without reevaluation, as
the landfill contract did. In
that respect, officials say
this latest exercise has
proven a learning experi-
ence and one that will be of
great value to the county.
Not everyone agrees
that everything came out
copasetic, however.
Boyd on Jan. 21 contin-
ued to question the need
for a landfill engineer to
oversee the landfill, given
that Gordon Dean, presi-
dent of RAI, is a certified
engineer and has volun-
teered to do the required
biennial engineering
reports.
"I maintain that this is
a monitoring project and
not an engineering proj-
ect," Boyd argued to no
avail. "I maintain that we
don't need an engineer to
supervise an engineer."
Commissioner
Stephen Fulford agreed to
a degree.
"I somewhat agree
with Hines," Fulford said.
"But since we're going
through this process, I
think it's wise, even if the
engineer isn't responsible
for the landfill, that we
have an engineer of record


for any solid waste proj-
ect."
Boyd's motion to
reject all bids for the land-
fill engineer failed to get a
second, with the resulting
4-1 vote to negotiate a con-
tract with Darabi and
Associates as the landfill
engineer.
Another noteworthy
point in the selection of
the landfill engineer was
how the commissioners'
ranking of the two top
choices differed from the
original ranking of the
five-member selection
committee.
In the case of the civil
engineering services con-
tract, a five-member selec-
tion committee ranked
Preble-Rish as the number
one choice and commis-
sioners unanimously con-
curred with that recom-
mendation, choosing to
negotiate a contract with
the latter.
In the case of the land-
fill engineering services.
contract, a different five-
member selection commit-
tee ranked Jones Edmunds
and Associates as the num-
ber one choice and Darabi
and Associates as the num-
ber two choice.
The commission, how-
ever, reversed this commit-
tee's ranking after inter-
viewing the two candi-
dates, ultimately giving,
Darabi and Associates a
combined total rating of
447 points and Jones
Edmunds and Associates a
combined total rating of
403 points. Did other than
qualifications enter into
commissioners' evalua-,
tions of the two candidates
and influence the out-
come?
Boyd implied as much.
"I'm troubled by the
process," Boyd said, choos-
ing his words carefully
"We see here two different
groups that have come up
with very different rank-
ings. This is very trou-
bling. It's no secret that
there are some very strong
feelings about what we
should do. These candi-
dates were closely ranked
by the committee. But if
there's a candidate that I
strongly favor, I can give.
my candidate 100 and the
other a zero. We come to
the point that some of us
have more of a vote
because we've skewed the
results. It's a process that's
troubling. "
For the record, com-
missioners' respective
scoring of Jones
Edmunds & Associates
and Darabi & Associates
were as follow: Fulford, 98
and 98; Commissioner
Gene Hall, 67 and 100;
Boyd, 76 and 68;
Commissioner Felix
"Skeet" Joyner, 85 and 95;
and Commissioner Danny
Monroe, 77 and 86.
A total of 25 appli-
cants responded to the two

MONEY & FINANCE



EDWARD JONES RANKS # 2

BY FORTUNE MAGAZINE Do You


The financial servic-
es firm Edward Jones,
which has branch
offices that serve the
Monticello area, ranked
#2 on FORTUNE maga-
zine's "100 Best
Companies to Work For
2010" list in its llth year
on the prestigious list.
Edward Jones also
ranked #1 for large sized
companies.
Edward Jones' 11
FORTUNE rankings also
include top 10 finishes
for eight Years, and con-
secutive #1 rankings in
2002 and 2003. This is the
firm's second consecu-
tive year at #2.
"I think people feel
good about working
here, in part, because of'
the work we do," said
Jim Weddle, Edward
Jones' managing part-
ner. "We work with indi-
vidual investors and
help them make .their
lives just a little bit bet-
ter. Perhaps because of
the work they've done
with us, they can send
their children to college,
they can retire a little
earlier or with greater
comfort. It's important
work. It's work that we
earn every day. It's a
privilege to work with
our clients. I think our
associates feel good
about that work."
In naming Edward
Jones to the list, FOR-
TUNE editors said: "The
investment adviser
weathered the recession
without closing one of
its 12,615 offices or lay-
ing off'a single employ-
ee. Salaries were frozen,
but profit sharing con-
tinued."
"This honor is espe-
cially gratifying in the
face of adversity and the
challenges the financial-
services industry has
faced the last two years,"
Weddle said. "We were
able to stay focused on
the long-term because
we are a partnership and
we know who we are and
what we do. We had no
layoffs. We had to make
some difficult decisions
in terms of cutting back
expenses, which we did
successfully. But when
you respect the people
who work here, you take
care of them not just in
the good times, but the
difficult times as well."
The full list and
related stories appear in
the Feb. 8 issue of FOR-
TUNE, available on
newsstands Jan. 25 and
now at
www.fortune.com/bestc
companies
According to FOR-
TUNE Deputy Managing
Editor Hank Gilman,
"The most important
considerations for this
year's list were hiring
and the ways in which
companies are helping
their employees weather


the recession. All 100
companies on our list
are currently hiring,
representing a total of
more than 92,000 open
job positions."
Currently, Edward
Jones has more than 600
positions available
throughout the country
The most positions open
are that of financial
advisor and branch
office administrator.
Each Edward Jones
branch office includes
one financial advisor
and one branch office
administrator who work
one on one with clients
in the communities
where those clients live.
To pick the "100 Best
Companies to Work For,"
FORTUNE partners with
the Great Place to Work
Institute a global
research and consulting
firm with offices in 30
countries to conduct
the most extensive
employee survey in cor-
porate America.
Two-thirds of a com-
pany's score is based on
the survey, sent to ran-
domly selected employ-
ees. The survey asks
questions related to
employees' attitudes
about the management's
credibility, job satisfac-
tion and camaraderie.
The remaining third is
based on a company's
responses to the
Institute's Culture Audit
questionnaire, which
asks detailed questions
about demographics,
pay and benefits, and
open-ended questions
about hiring, communi-
cation and diversity
The FORTUNE
ranking is one of several
important honors based
on associate input that
Edward Jones has
received in recent
weeks. In early
December, the firm was
ranked #1 in Registered
Rep. magazine's annual
brokerage report card
for the 17th consecutive
year. Also last month,
Edward Jones ranked
#10 among the "50 Best
Employers in Canada"
in the Globe and Mail's
annual listing in Report
on Business Magazine.
Over the past year,
Edward Jones also has
received workplace
recognition from
dozens of state publica-
tions in the U.S.
Edward Jones pro-
vides financial services
for individual investors
in the United States and,
through its affiliate, in
Canada. Every aspect of
the firm's business, from

New Bill Signed I


Allows Taxpayers T

Contributions On


Tallahassee, FL,
January 24, 2010
Taxpayers wishing to
lend their support to
relief efforts in Haiti
now have an additional
incentive to do so,
thanks to new legisla-
tion signed into law by
President Obama.
Through the new
bill, H.R. 4462, taxpayers
have two options
regarding monetary
contributions for
Haitian Earthquake
Relief. They can either
deduct contributions
made after January. 11,
2010 and before March 1,
2010 on their 2009 return
or can wait and claim
the deduction on their
2010 return. In addition
to allowing the contri-
butions to be deducted
on a 2009 tax return, the
bill also includes a pro-
vision that recognizes
donations made to a
charitable organization
via text message, pro-
vided that a copy of the
phone bill showing the
date, time, organization
name, and donation
amount is available.
"The nation of Haiti
is suffering a devastat-
ing humanitarian cri-
sis, and millions of
Americans have already
been moved to donate
money to charities that
are taking part in relief
efforts," said Mark
Daily, Franchisee,
Tallahassee Jackson
Hewitt Tax Service Inc.
"Having the President
specifically designate
that Haiti-related mone-
tary contributions may
be acknowledged on a
2009 tax return, even
though the calendar
year has passed, is a
powerful way to encour-
age this kind of giving -

taxpayers of the finan-
cial benefits of charita-

ble contributions."
Here are some tips
from Jackson Hewitt on
how to make and record
charitable donations
and claim them on a 2009
tax return:
There are several
ways to make a tax-
deductible contribution
to a qualified charitable
organization: through a
cash payment, a check, a
credit card charge or by
making a payroll deduc-
tion to a charity The
Internal Revenue
Service allows taxpayers
to search for a qualified
organization on its Web
site at
http://www.irs.gov/app
/pub-78/
Keep records of
your donations.
Acceptable records
include a receipt from
Sthe organization that
states the date, name,
address, location, and
amount of the donation;
a cancelled check; or
other bank documents
that provide the same
information.
Don't forget to claim
all the household items
and clothing you donat-
ed to your church,
school, or other local
charity during the year.
The fair-market value of
all items in good or bet-
ter condition that are
donated to a qualified
organization are
deductible. Make sure
you keep a list of all
items donated and their
value 'when you con-
tributed them.
If you volunteer, you


can also deduct out-of-
pocket expenses you
have that are directly
related to your volun-
teer work.
Out -of-pocket
expenses include
mileage related to chari-
table work (at present,
14 cents per mile), the
cost of uniforms
required while doing the
volunteer work (such as
for scout leaders, EMTs,
firefighters, etc), and
any supplies needed to
do this work. Remember
to keep your receipts
with the date and the
organization's name for
your records.
If you are claiming
mileage, make sure you
have a record of the
miles driven, the date,
and the organization's
name. You should also
indicate starting point
and destination.
"Charitable contribu-
tions claimed on a 2009
tax return must have
been contributed in the
2009 tax year," notes
Daily. "The new Haiti
legislation is an excep-
tion."

butions can be found on

Triumphant Tidbits
Ever heard of the "Old 100th"? Probably you
have, and it has been sung many times over the
years. I am referring to the hymn, "Praise God from
Whom All Blessings Flow," which we most often
ascribe, "The Doxology"
I am reminded afresh of the bountiful blessings
that God bestows upon each of us every day. In
Monticello last year, and during the annual
Watermelon Festival, there was the usual fanfare
and fun.
There were many folks involved in the parade
that Saturday, as well as the large populace of eager
onlookers. It was a fun time, but within a few min-
utes of the parade's end, a serious accident
occurred on Jefferson Street, just north of the
courthouse. Certainly, there was tragedy in that
accident, but considering all of the folks who could
have been injured, I am thankful to God that the
number of people involved in the accident was rela-
tively small. This same God to Whom I offer praise
for His providential care is the same God to Whom I
turn and ask Him to comfort and heal in the lives of
the families touched by this event. The God I serve
IS God. There is none like Him. How do I know this?
The Word of God tells me so. I could begin in the
very first pages of the Scriptures, and what do I
find? Genesis 1:1 begins, "In the beginning God...".
In the book of Deuteronomy (Chapter 4,) Moses
talks about the Lord God. In fact, in this writing, we
read these words, "besides him there is no other."
HE is the same God Who reaches down from heaven
every day to pour out His best blessings on all Who
trust in Him.
So in singing songs like "The Doxology," Let us
reaffirm our faith and trust in the one true God.
This same God is the One Who gives us abundant

Staff Writer
Financial Peace
University (FPU,) the
13-week program
taught by Dave
Ramsey has helped
more than one million
families positively
change their financial
future. This life-chang-
ing program teaches
families and individu-
als how to handle their.
money through com-
mon-sense principles
and small group
accountability.
FPU is available for
churches, companies,
military bases, finan-
cial literacy programs,
Spanish speaking
organizations, and
community groups.
And, will be held 4 p.m.

tion about the classes,

u As they
work on a Total Money
Makeover, the average
family pays off $5,300
in dept and saves $2,700
in the first 91 days
after beginning FPU
and is completely out
of debt, except for the
mortgage, in 18 to 24
months.


Ramsey began
teaching FPU classes
in 1994 every night in
and around the
Nashville, TN area. In
1997, FPU was made
available on video
across the country
with thousands of
classes around the
nation today.
The program is
made up of 13 life-
.changing lessons
taught by Ramsey on
DVD in a fun and
entertaining way. "I
like to put the cookies
on the shelf where
everyone can reach
them." says Ramsey
After each lesson the
group meets to help
each other plan budg-
ets, discuss successes
and temptations, and
support each other in
their journey to beat
debt and build wealth.
Topics covered
include: Saving for
emergencies,
B u d g e t i n g,
Relationship and
money issues, Buying
big bargains, Getting
out of debt,
Understanding invest-
ments, Understanding
insurance, Retirement
and college planning,
Buyer beware, Real
estate mortgages, and
Careers and extra jobs.
Ramsey is a personal
money management
expert, an extremely
popular national radio
personality, and best-


selling author of The
Total Money
Makeover. In his latest
book, a follow-up of his
enormously successful
New York Times best-
sellers Financial Peace
and More Than
Enough, Ramsey
exemplifies his life's
work of teaching oth-
ers how to be financial-
ly responsible, so they
can acquire enough
wealth to take care of
loved ones, live pros-
perously into old age,
and give generously to
others.

Living


By Vivian Miles
A great long life and a heart full of love,
Jesus smiles and sends them from above.
We work hard spreading the news in our town
and about,
Making sure no one is left out.
God loves us in many ways,
Because He is with us always.
A missile light was seen in the West,
We hear the cry it's just a test.
God has told us to "fear not,"
I'm with you... you're on top.
We sow seeds on the pathway of life,
We hope the harvest is joy... not strife.
Reading the Bible finds treasures so dear,
They are for all who are willing to hear.
Pride in a life, -need not be,
For God's hands we will not see.
Fill our hearts with love, joy, and peace,
And our love of God will increase.
Eyes hath not seen and ear hath not heard,
The things God has for us in His word.
The more we have and give away,
Enriches us from day to day.
We stand firm, come what may,
To secure a place for children to pray.
Help us to stay turned to God's way,
And sing praises every day.
In winter when the tree has no leaves,
We feel like they have been stolen by thieves.
His grace is for all who believe,
Will you now His grace receive?


Robinson led the
Business Session.

to reuse reclaimed water at Simpson Nurseries.
The City proposes a Part II, Chapter 62-610, FA.C.,
restricted access land application sites with a ca-
pacity of 1.0 MGD annual average daily flow
(AADF). The City's application to permit Simpson
Nurseries provides a strategy to close the con-
structed wetlands and to eliminate direct effluent
discharge to D-002 receiving wetlands of Wolf
Creek Swamp (WBID 3337).
The secondary treated reclaimed water will be
pumped from the wastewater treatment plant's
(WWTP) new 5 MG storage pond to Simpson Nurs-
eries by the existing 12-inch reclaimed water ma in.
The reclaimed water from the WWTP \will bypass
the existing constructed wetland and will be
pumped to two existing agricultural ponds ( Slater
Pond and Alexander Pond) at Simpson Nurseries.
The existing 12-inch reclaimed water main that
currently crosses through the nursery i in route tot
the receiving wetlands) will be branched off and
connected to Slater Pond and Alexander Pond at
the nursery Simpson Nurseries irrigates from the
two ponds, which also collect rainfall and runoff
from the nursery The two ponds have interim itent
storm induced discharges to surface waters. These
two ponds outfall are designated new NPDES out-
falls D-004 & D-005.
*Alexander Pond, D-004 outfall, discharges to
Beasley Creek (WBID 3367) to the Aucilla River
(WBID 3310).
*Slater Pond, D-005 outfall, discharges to, Wolf
Creek Swamp to Wolf Creek %WBID ,337" to

SCHOOL


KEVIN HARYIN, LIFE-LONG'

LIADNED AND DOWD


FRAN HUNT
Monticello News
*Staff Writer
Aucilla Christian Academy (ACA)
Assistant Principal and Dean of Stu-
dents Kevin Harvin is a life-long
learner with 15 years of service with
ACA serving as both a teacher for seven
years and an administrator for the past
eight years. He is also a man with much
education and he is continually learn-
ing and teaching students at the school
what is needed from them to achieve
their goals in life.
In l#s years serving as a teacher at
ACA, Harvin taught primarily jr. high
and high school students in the areas of
Social Studies, American History, Bible
and Geography
Harvin attended Florida State Uni-
versity where he received a Bachelor of
Science Degree in Political Science. "I
am currently attending Florida State
University and working on a Bachelor
of Arts Degree in Classical Archaeol-
ogy and Religion," he said.
So how did Harvin become inter-
ested in a teaching career: "I have al-
ways loved to teach and work with
students and the opportunity at Aucilla
allowed me to do both," said Harvin.
Through his years at Aucilla, he
found his biggest challenge to be bal-
ancing his role as Guidance Counselor
and handling discipline problems at
school. "My biggest frustration is
watching some students with so much
potential underachieve and settle for
mediocrity rather than striving for ex-
cellence," Harvin added.
"My main objective this year is
being able to establish better communi-
cation with our parent body and help
our students plan for their futures early
by conducting parent/student confer-
ences," he said..
"I am most looking forward to see-
ing our seniors graduate, summer va-
cation and helping my oldest daughter
attend an archaeological field school in
Jamestown Virginia this summer,"
Harvin added.
Harvin describes hinseif as a life
long learner. "I strive everyday to learn
something new," said Harvin.
He would like to be remembered by
the students as a man who loves God.
loves the students and one who demon-
strated that love each day through his
speech and actions.
Harvin said his strong points in-
clude time management and organiza-

tional skills. "I work fulltime for ACA
and I am a bi-vocational youth pastor at
First Baptist Church in Lloyd, where
we also attend," he said. "In addition, I
am also a part-time student at FSU and
a father raising a family with a special
needs child. To keep all my ducks in a
row I have to manage my time well and
stay organized."
His hobbies include bicycling and
walking. "I also love going to the FSU
Bobby Leach Athletic Center and play-
ing racquetball against some of my for-
mer students," said Harvin. "Although
they are much younger than me, this
old man still has some skills and keeps
the games competitive.
"A new passion of mine is singing
in our church band, Broken Shackles,"
he said. "I have a love for music and re-
ally enjoy sharing God's word through
music with others."
Harvin was born in Tallahasse
where he has lived all of his life and he
commutes to Aucilla everyday, travel-
ing about 90 miles round trip.
He has been married to his wife,
Letty, for 31 years and they have two
daughters. Their eldest is Serena, who
graduated from Aucilla in 2007 and is
currently a senior at FSU. She is study-
ing Classical Archaeology Their
youngest is Kimberly, who is 7 years
old.
"I like to see everyday as a new
challenge and a new opportunity to do
something great for God," said Harv in.
"Every day is a blessing and a gift from
the Lord. I want to live my life in such a
way that when my time comes to go
home and be with the Lord Jesus, there
will be no regrets and no missed oppor-
tunities." he concluded.
