Based in part on the
hope that the school dis-
trict will ultimately agree
to the lease of the A-
Building, Clerk of Court
Kirk Reams on Thursday,
Feb. 4, convinced the Jef-
ferson County Commis-
sion to approve an
agreement with a finan-
cial company that will ex-
plore possible funding
sources for transporta-
tion improvements and
the renovation of the his-
toric school building,
among other things.
The agreement with
the Gainesville-based
Morgan Keegan & Com-
pany, Inc., authorizes the
latter to prepare different
possible scenarios to fi-
nance the restoration of
the A-Building and other
public works projects
that the commission may
want to undertake.
In comments by
Ralph W Cellon, senior
vice president of fixed in-
come banking with Kee-
gan & Company, both
before the County Com-
mission and in a letter to
Reams, the possible sce-
narios include refinanc-
ing the outstanding 1992
county road bonds and
refinancing the 1999 jail
bonds.

It seems counterintu-
itive to be doing an elections
story in February, given that
qualification isn't until mid
June and that candidates
traditionally haven't an-
nounced for elections until
much later in the season.
But it may be that Prop-
erty Appraiser Angela Gray
set a new local standard in
the last election when she
began her campaign well
over a year in advance.
Whatever the reason,
candidates are now stepping
forward to announce their
intentions much earlier. In-
deed, one of them, Demo-
cratic candidate Betsy
Barfield, has outdone Gray
insofar as the early an-
nouncement of her inten-
tion to seek office.
Barfield, who is seeking
the District 4 County Com-
mission seat, pre-qualified
on March 4, 2009 the earli-
est pre-qualification that
Deputy Elections Supervisor
Lee Davis can remember in
her 12 years in the office.
Gray, by comparison, pre-
qualified in September 2007
for the November 2008 elec-
tion.
Scott Goodlin, another
Democratic candidate for
the District 4 County Com-
mission seat, also pre-quali-
fied early, on July 7, 2009.

It appears that although
the civil engineering serv-
ices contract with Preble-
Rish Inc. will come before
county commissioners for
approval on Thursday
evening, Feb. 18, the related
landfill engineer and land-
fill-monitoring services con-
tracts will not.
That, at least, was the
expectation last Wednesday,
when the News spoke with
County Coordinator Roy
Schleicher.
Two issues apparently
caused the last-minute with-
drawal of the three con-
tracts from the agenda on
Jan. 21, when commission-
ers were scheduled to ap-


prove them. And while one
of the issues appears has
been resolved, allowing for
the civil engineering serv-
ices contract to proceed, the
contracts for the landfill en-
gineer and landfill monitor-
ing services continue to
experience complications.
The first of the two is-
sues that stalled the awards
of the contracts on Jan. 21
involved the accumulation
of rainwater in several de-
pressions at the closed land-
fill on Tyson Road following
the recent heavy rains. De-
composition and settling of
the buried garbage causes
the depressions, technically
called "differential settle-
ment". Call them what you

pre-qualified early is Ger-
rold Austin, a former City
Councilman who resigned
his office in the last election
to seek a School Board seat.
Austin is seeking the Group
1 City Council seat.
But it's not just new can-
didates and former office-
holders who are
pre-qualifying early; incum-
bents too seem to be getting
in on the act. It used to be an
unspoken rule that incum-
bents typically played it
close to the vest about their
reelection plans, waiting
until qualification time or
very near it before tipping
their hands.
But already, two incum-
bents have pre-qualified for
the coming election. The two
are County Commissioner
Felix "Skeet" Joyner, of Dis-
trict 4, who is seeking a
fourth term; and Commis-
sioner Gene Hall, of District
2, who is seeking a third


term. Both Joyner and Hall
are Democrats.
Pre-qualification estab-
lishes an individual's intent
to seek public office. It al-
lows the individual to ap-
point a campaign manager,
start a campaign account,
solicit campaign contribu-
tions, and alert the public of
the intent to run. It also al-
lows candidates to solicit sig-
natures, if they plan to
qualify by petition, as the
qualifying fees can be pretty
hefty.
Qualification is when
public office seekers for-
mally sign the loyalty oath
and pay the qualifying fee, if
they have not pre-qualified
by petition. The qualifica-
tion for the coming election
is noon Monday, June 14, to
noon Friday, June 18.
The primary election is
set for Tuesday, Aug. 24; and

Lawsuit Seeks To Overturn Impact Fees Related Law


LAZARO ALEMAN
Monticello News
Senior Staff Writer
Local officials likely will keep an
eye on a suit filed Wednesday, Feb. 10,
by three statewide organizations and
nine counties challenging impact fees-
related legislation that the plaintiffs
charge is unconstitutional and violates
the separation of powers provision in
Florida' Constitution.
The suit filed by the Florida As-
sociation of Counties, the Florida
League of Cities, the Florida School
Boards Association and Alachua, Col-


lier, Lake, Lee, Levy, Nassau, Pasco,
Sarasota and St. Lucie counties es-
sentially argues that HB 227 (enacted
into law on May 21,2009) shifts the bur-
den of proof to local governments and
heightens the standard of that proof
when impact fees are challenged.
The law further forbids the courts
from applying a deferential standard
in considering the validity of impact
fees adopted by cities and counties.
The deferential standard, the suit
explains, has historically been applied
in two contexts.
"The first is that findings of fact


made by the governing bodies of coun-
ties and cities acting in their legisla-
tive context are entitled to deference
by the courts. The second deferential
standard is that impact fee ordinances,
like all legislative acts, are presumed
to be valid by the courts."
The suit generally alleges that HB-
227, or the Act as it known after codifi-
cation into law, imposes significant
restrictions on the ability of local gov-
ernments to impose impact fees for the
funding of growth-related infrastruc-
ture in the aggregate.

WORKSHOP

AIMS TO

IDENTIFY

BUSINESS

INCENTIVE

MONIES
LAZARO ALEMAN
Monticello News
Senior Staff Writer
The Jefferson County Commis-
sion is scheduled to hold a workshop
at 4 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 18, to identify
and allocate the monies that will be
used as incentives to attract new busi-
nesses here and encourage existing
ones to expand.
The workshop is the next logical
step, following the commission's adop-
tion on Jan. 21 of an ordinance whose
sole aim is to spur economic develop-
ment.
Prepared by Economic Develop-
ment Director Julie Conley with assis-
tance from Commissioner Stephen
Fulford, the ordinance sets the frame-
work for creation of a program that
awards grants to qualifying busi-
nesses as calculated incentives to pro-
mote development and create jobs.
More specifically, the ordinance
identifies revenues streams for the
program and specifies how the funds
may be used to create additional pay-
rolls and grow the local economy It
also sets eligibility standards for the
funding, establishes a review and eval-
uation process for determining what
businesses qualify, and provides for a
monitoring mechanism to ensure
compliance with the funding require-
ments, among other things.
Some of the stipulations of the in-
centive program are that an applicant
must create no less than five "quality
jobs" within 24 months of the execu-
tion of the grant agreement and that
the jobs provide individual wages
equal to, or exceeding, 70 percent of
Jefferson County' average wage,
which equates to $9.83 hourly or

CLOWNS
The word "clown" is
an interesting word to
look at. It is not a latinate
word, that is, it does not
come from the Latin and
its daughters, Spanish,
Italian, Portugues,
Rumanian or French.
The word emanates from
one of the anglo or ger-
manic dialects of the
North. It is first used in
the mid 16t century in
various meanings. For
example, "clown" meant,
"A countryman, rustic,
or peasant"; It also signi-
fied an ignorant person,
"implying ignorance,
crassness, or rude man-
ners; a mere rustic, a
boor." With this last
meaning in mind, it was
said that a clown was "a
man without refinement
or culture, uncouth, ill
bred" (OED).
Thus, the meaning
had a negative connota-
tions. The word meant
something bad, not
classy But one addition-
al meaning prevailed
during the 161 century,
that is, "a fool or jester, a
stage-character." And
this is the positive mean-
ing of a clown. Someone
who entertains people,
young and old. Who
makes them laugh and
have a nice time. That
meaning is the one that
is closer to us. With this
said, let me share with
m=i.

IN THE LIBRARY


you, our next activity in
the Library And guess
what? It deals with
clowns in the Library
Believe it or not,
there will be clowns vis-
iting our Public Library
very soon. You might
ask: How do clowns fit
into the Library? The
answer is: they are found
in books everywhere.
But these clowns come
straight from Mexico.
Yes, Mexican clowns
with all their costumes,
adornments, colors and
gadgets. They will be
reading from children's
books, giving out gifts
and candy to children
and performing various
tricks and skits. Who
ever thought that
Clowns come only from
the USA or Europe? Of
course not, they 'also
come from Mexico with
a zesty flavor all of their
own.
With this library
activity the children will
be so happy to see and
hear what Mexican
clowns can do. The
clowns will speak .in
both English and
Spanish and this, no
doubt, will be of great
interest to everyone.
They will present mini-
lessons for children and
they will interact with
them. They will narrate
stories and legends from


Mexico. They will read
from children's books.
And they will do many
things, things that
clowns always do: make
people laugh. The name
of this group is called:
Royito and Tin Tin
(Clown Performance).
The activity will take
place on February 25th
from 10:00 a.m. to 12
noon in our Conference
Room. Everyone is invit-
ed to attend, young and
old. We want this treat to
be something special for
the entire community,
especially for our chil-
dren. So we are inviting
everyone to attend.
Refreshments will be
served. Come and join
us.

My Take On Obama's State


Of The Union Address


Dear Editor
My thanks to Mr.
Pouliotte and his insight-
ful synopsis of the Obama
State of the Union
Address, and my appreci-
ation for his apparent suc-
cess in listening to the
entire speech: I personally
am incapable of enduring
the ranting of an egoma-
niacal con man,. without
bashing my head against
hard objects to neutralize
my frustration. What I
observed in overall tone of
the speech was an arro-
gant immature angry
individual, who has now
resorted to blaming every-
one from George Bush,
the congress, the supreme
court, and in essence the
majority of Americans
who can finally see
through his facade of
propaganda and flat out
lies, perpetrated' on this
country when they were
sincerely looking for
answers to the many prob-
lems now facing us. Let's
keep a proper perspective
as we face these problems,
that we remain the most
blessed country on the
face of this planet. These
liars always embellish the
problems to create a panic
among the people, and
present themselves as our
saviors. Well, the truth
may hurt but most of you
bought into it. Well now
we have a real problem,
with the outright takeover
by -the Federal
Government, of our free
enterprise system, if
Obama gets his and his
minions way Let's stop
beating around the bush
and call this man for what


he is.
Obama spent' his
entire life being mentored
by the likes of radical
Muslims Louis Wright
and Louis Farrahkan. Of
course he has told us he
was oblivious to their
hateful anti-American
rhetoric, and even calls
himself a Christian. If he
had called himself the
"tooth fairy" our astute
American press would not
have even questioned the
veracity of his claims.
Lets look at just a few
facts: Obama would not
even salute the flag, until
outside pressure con-
vinced him to do so. He is
only now reluctantly
admitting we are at war
with radical Muslims. He
continues to refuse t9
present the evidence that
he is an American citizen.
This small detail happens
to be one of the criteria's
in the Constitution, which
normally eliminates one
from consideration to
become the president of
the United States of
America. Arnold
Swarznegger cannot run
for president due to this
"minor detail". Based on
this evidence alone one
might conclude this presi-
dent is a radical Muslim,
bent on Jihad against this
country, they would be
called an extremist, or
much worse. I will not say
this because my friend
Kate would admonish me
to think clearly I can only
say that if it walks like a
duck, etc. it's probably a
duck. Even more alarm-
ing is this guy's recent dis-
dain for the law by bla-


tantly paying off two sen-
ators in order to get his
healthcare reform passed.
This is normally called
extortion, yet in
Obamaland it is called
smart politics. I can only
imagine if Bush or any
other Republican had
done the same, the majori-
ty of the American press
would be screaming for
impeachment. This presi-
dent has no intention of
abiding by the
Constitution of the
United States of America.
Our Constitution is in
existence to protect us
from such an administra-
tion as this. I also caution
those who believe Obama
will not be elected again.
The latest polls show a 48
percent approval rating
for Obama. With Acorn
and their splinter groups
still very active, anything
can happen. Acorns elec-
toral crimes on the last
election will probably
never be fully brought to
light. Suffice to say the,
legitimacy of Obama's
victory is suspect at the
very least. I have said this
before, that until our
politicians are pressured
enough to follow our
Constitution, we will con-
tinue to drift toward obliv-
ion. It's not the economy
or healthcare or anything
else it's the Constitution.
Until then, as a Christian
I.am required in the Bible
to pray for these people.
To be honest, this is a very
difficult thing for me.

O)ear Editor,


Friday. First of all I
should say that my per-
sonal opinion is support-
ive of the Monticello
News. I base this on the
personal integrity of the
owner and staff to fairly
communicate the news
of Jefferson County. You
definitely will not find

s Enough


I could not help but notice your recent articles
about the ever-increasing "electric and energy" cost
to consumers. I have lived in several different states,
where meters are read on a regular basis, such as
Southern California, (one of the most expensive
regions of the country,) yet never have I seen bills
average as high as I have seen here in North
Florida. Personally, as mentioned in previous arti-
cles, despite cutting down actual usage, or switching
_he thermostat to a lower setting, and running floor
,fans (instead of air conditioning,) the average usage
*ttill being charted as increasing on the electric com-
ipany's end. I believe this is being done to people for
1 wo reasons... first, as the economy fell into reces-
:sion, companies increased cost to cover losses over
-.bad business decisions. Second, although they
i already have millions of dollars, they decline to fund
their own "improvement" projects, like Progress
Energy's new plant proposed in Central Florida. So
-they get the consumer to do it by "estimating the
bill" at a much higher rate. Historically, "estima-
tion," and not actual usage, being billed to con-
'umers has been highly looked down upon by the
federal l Energy Commission. Case and Point, the
San Diego Gas and Electric Company a few years
back was found to be doing the same, and was judi-
,'ially ordered to repay several million dollars to
consumers. While I realize the cost of goods gradu-
,lly increases to match the cost of living, I do not
believe charging almost exactly DOUBLE the actual
.usage, and calling it a "Fuel Charge," or rubbing
-ones chin and guessing that in a single wide mobile
home (I use more electricity than a two-story town
-home in Temecula.Wine Country) is morally right,
,correct, or ethical. Maybe, its time people actually
--read their bills charge by charge, and let them
know... "Enough is Enough!"

ever is not the point of
this letter. First of all
allow me to state I am
fully aware of the ongo-
ing struggle for all the
businesses in downtown
Monticello. I would add
that I have eaten at most
of them. The area of con-
cern is that you have set
your sights on what you
mistakenly perceive as
the Monticello News


being the enemy in all
this. The Wharf Express
is also not the enemy It
is a proven fact that hav-
ing diversification of
cuisine is a positive situ-
ation. Witness the suc-
cess of malls, as people
can go as a group and
select from a variety of
foods. The problem in
Monticello is not that we
have too many eateries
and/or businesses, but
rather far too little choic-
es, and availability of
merchandise. Why else
would the majority of
people who live here,


shop in Tallahassee.
What you should be
doing is organizing and
pointing both your bar-
rels in the direction of
the true culprits, that
being the leadership of
this city, which is every-
thing but business
friendly This leadership
is easily the most busi-
ness unfriendly environ-
ment I have ever wit-
nessed. What it's going
to take is the courage to
go against these people,
who are really just pup-
pets for the real people
who control this county


That part makes it very
difficult, when the real
powers to be seem to be
hell-bent on eliminating
businesses in this town
altogether. The bottom
line is if our politicians
and appointed officials
are not doing everything
in their power to build a
positive business cli-
mate, then they have
totally failed in serving
this community Very
simply more businesses
translates into More
Jobs.

COUNTY


ROLLFRBLADfRS PASS THROUGH MONTICULO


FRAN HUNT
Monticello News
Staff Writer
A pair of good-hearted
young rollerbladers and
their two-person crew fol-
lowing behind them in a
large motor home as they
began their cross-country
trek, passed through
Monticello Monday after-
noon as they had already
begun their mission to
raise $1,000,000 for
Huntington's Disease
Society of America and
Leukemia & Lymphoma
Society
The pair drove to
Florida from New York and
began their journey Feb. 1
from St. Augustine to San
Diego CA. The name of
their non-profit group is In
Motion For a Million,
which takes active steps
toward the greater good of
health and humanity. "We
strive to be a positive con-
tributor toward various
established and well-
known charities, while
simultaneously encourag-
ing our fellow human
beings to partake in the
exhilarating world of phys-
ical fitness," said 28-year
old Steven Feigenbaum,
athlete, adventurer, educa-
tor, and co-founder of In
Motion For a Million.
Feigenbaum was born
in 1982 and grew up in East
Windsor, NJ. Involved in
athletics and adventures
ever since he could walk,
he harbors a strong belief
that the mind and the body
work with each other and
for each other. Always a
person who would rather
play than watch,
Feigenbaum has turned his
energy into positive contri-
butions toward various
charities, namely
Huntington's Disease
Society of America
("HDSA"). Throughout the
past decade, he has been
actively involved in HDSA's
various basketball "Hoop-
a-thons", "Variedy" shows,
and independent fund-rais-
ing sports tournaments.
His involvement with
HDSA is both deeply rooted
and close to his heart. In
2005, after a ten-year fight,
his Aunt Brenda, who was
like a mother to him,
passed away due to compli-
cations from Huntington's
Disease. However, the fight
did not end there. Because
HD is genetic, Brenda's two
daughters, Feigenbaum's
cousins, both have a 50 per-


cent chance of acquiring
the disease. Thus, he
spends much of his free
time working for HDSA
fundraising and aware-
ness. It is his hope that his
family, and all "HD fami-
lies", will soon be forever
freed from the grips of this
terrible disease.
In 2008, Feigenbaum
decided to create his own
charity. With the collabora-
tion of good friend and ath-
letic teammate, 30-year old
Dan Bowen, he formed "In
Motion For a Million" in
August of 2008. Fueled by a
passion and enthusiasm
for health and humanity,
the team is thrilled to be
"in motion" for many great
causes.
Feigenbaum believes
that "It's too late now" are
the four worst words in the
English language. "Get out
there, live your dreams,
and make a difference,
today!" is his philosophy.
"The thing you have to
remember about a trek like
this is you're not going to
go in knowing everything
and you don't want to know
everything. Where's the
fun in that," said
Feigenbaum.
Bowen is an
endurance athlete, adven-
turer, and co-founder of In
Motion For A Million. He is
a native New Yorker, born
in Manhattan in 1980.
Name a sport, Bowen has
either played it or can't
wait to give it a shot. His
passion for ice hockey
spilled onto the streets at
an early age, and it was not
long before Bowen was
more comfortable on eight
wheels than in two sneak-
ers. Rollerblading both
challenged him physically
and united him with the
people around him. In
August of 2008, when
Feigenbaum proposed a
cross-country rollerblad-
ing trek, he did not think
twice.
In 1985 his beloved
mother, Valerie passed
away from Hodgkin
Lymphoma, a cancer that
originates in the lymphatic
system. Rollerblading for
the Leukemia &
Lymphoma Society
("LLS"), he is in line with
this powerful charity's
core desire to find the cure
and improve the quality of
life for patients and their
families.
"I believe that a few
people doing a lot is like


putting a band-aid on a
major issue, while every-
one doing a little will
always carry the day," he
said. Bowen sees In Motion
For A Million as an oppor-
tunity for everyone to work
together and make a differ-
ence.
"Think you can, think
you can't; either way, you'll
be right," he added. Bowen
had no idea the trek would
start off so well. "People
just seem to be coming out
of the woodwork. Not only
are people wanting to sup-
port us and donate, but
there are people who have
been affected by the dis-
eases we are fighting for
who want to share their
stories. We had breakfast
yesterday morning with a
couple who lost their son to
Leukemia. I cannot fathom
their pain but I know that I
can and will do whatever I
can to help bring aware-
ness and extremely neces-
sary funding to this horri-
ble disease."
The motor home driv-
er, Phil Repadi, 39, also of
New York, serves as the
team driver/supervisor.
He joined this trek in mem-
ory of his close friend,
Elizabeth, who at the age of
34 passed away from
leukemia. "That's who's
really with me on this
trip," he added.
"Phil has to have a
very high focus level at all
times," said Bowen. "He
has to handle this big
motor home traveling at
about 10 miles per. hour
and has to be ready to stop
on a dime in case one of us
fall or something."
Julie Horvath-Krol,
serves as the official
"truck mom" to the trio.
She prepares meals and
when the pair takes a
break, she sees that each
gets hand made protein
shakes made of a combina-
tion of blueberries, straw-
berries, bananas, whey
protein, five raw eggs, oat-
meal, peanut butter,
almond butter, and some-
times real almonds added,
as soon as they begin their
break.
"I have six children
and my children and the
guys are friends, so when I
heard that there was an
opportunity to donate time
on this trek, I was thrilled
to be able to do it," said
Horvath-Krol. She added
that she embarked on the
trek in memory of her

younger brother who
passed away from cancer.
"Having Julie along is
like hitting the jackpot,"
said Feigenbaum. "We
have to focus on our bodies
and making 50 miles, but
she focuses on the other
things for us. She plays
mom and assures that we
get the daily calorie intake
of 10,000 calories per day to
keep up our performance
and when we break, once
or twice per day, she pre-
pares our protein shakes
gives us deep muscle mas-
sages and adjusts our
backs before we start after
each break," he added.
"This trip doesn't hap-
pen without all of us," said
Bowen. "We rely on Phil
and Julie to take care of
everything while we focus
on our goal. Steve wouldn't
have done this alone and
neither would I."
Feigenbaum and
Bowen have been averag-
ing about 50 miles per day,
despite some very
inclement weather.
"Tuesday (Feb. 2) we didn't
think we would travel 50
miles and I didn't know
how we were going to make
it," he said. "But we made
good time, despite the fact
that by the time we got out-

from the beginning of their
quest to reach their goal;
"Give or take a day or so."
Bowen spoke briefly of
their trek experiences
within their week on the
road; "People have been so
nice. They honk their car
horns and wave as they
drive by and there was one
lady who stopped and
shared her story with us
about her daughter being a
survivor of Hodgkin
Lymphoma and how she
lost her grandfather to
Leukemia. The media has
also been very helpful at
getting the word out for our
cause." In the first week of
their trek, the team has
raised approximately
$3,000 toward the cause.
The motor home, uti-
lized by the group, was
donated by Ken Rofness of
Show me The Money Bus
Tour and Add 2 Action;
Rollerblade donated the
team their skates, knee,
elbow and wrist pads,
shirts, helmets and addi-
tional equipment; and
Adventurecycling.org
donated the maps high-
lighting bicycle routes to
use for their safety.
"It will be most awe-
some to finish this trip,"
said Feigenbaum. "But
what is most important are
the two diseases we are
doing this for."
"They are good guys,"
added Horvath-Krol.
"They are heroes."
After stopping for a
brief break and lunch in
Monticello, Horvath-Krol
prepared the rollerblading
duo their protein shakes
and after they ate, she mas-
saged their backs, shoul-
ders, and adjusted their
backs. They strapped their
rollerblades back on, said
their goodbyes to locals
and embarked on their
journey toward
Tallahassee.
There are three ways
to make a donation toward
In Motion For a Million,
online, by mail, and in per-
son. Note that your dona-
tion will be divided equally
between the two charities.

will, the Florida
Department of
Environmental
Protection (FDEP)
requires that such
depressions be eliminat-
ed, along with the result-
ing surface ponding of
water.
The question that
immediately arose upon
discovery of the depres-
sions and that Schleicher
believes has now been
satisfactorily answered
was, whose responsibili-
ty would the correction
of the depressions be if a
new contract was award-
ed? In an abundance of
caution, commissioners
especially
Commissioner Hines
Boyd wanted to ascer-
tain that the responsibili-
ty fell squarely on the
current contractor,
Darabi and Associates.
Schleicher said last
Wednesday that he had
in-hand a letter from
Darabi accepting full
responsibility for correc-
tion of the depressions,
which the latter acknowl-
edged had occurred on
his watch.
What did the landfill
situation have to do with
the awarding of the con-
tract for the civil engi-
neering services?
Nothing really,
Schleicher averred.
Except that Darabi is cur-
rently both the county's
civil and landfill engi-
neer, and commissioners
- again in an abundance
of caution didn't want
to change anything with-
out clarity of resppnsibil-
ity on the landfill issue,
he explained.
But now that issue
seemed resolved, it was
his belief that the civil
engineer services con-
tract would be executed
Feb. 18, he said.
Not so for landfill


engineering services and
landfill monitoring serv-
ices contracts, which
appear mired in ambigui-
ties.
The issue here is a
problem that has devel-
oped with task 3 of the
landfill-monitoring serv-
ices contract, which spe-
cific task the commission
tentatively awarded to
Restoration Assistance,
Inc. (RAI), on Jan. 7,
based on its low bid of
$27,000.
The commission, in
fact, divided the landfill
monitoring, services con-
tract into three parts,
awarding tasks 1 and 2 to
Darabi & Associates and
task 3 to RAI. But it was
the representation of
Schleicher, Solid Waste
Department Director
Beth Thorne and RAI
President Dean Gordon
last Wednesday that a
sticking point had devel-
oped when the two par-
ties sat down to negotiate
the specifics of the con-
tract. That sticking point
is essentially a difference
of interpretation
between RAI and county
officials as to what exact-
ly task 3 calls for.
County officials'
position is that task 3
calls for the contractor to
assume full liability for
any mishap-that may
occur as a result of the
latter's work, which
involves grounds mainte-
nance, such mowing and
tree removal, and upkeep
of the methane vent
wells and groundwater
monitoring wells at the
site. (Tasks 1 and 2 entail
the testing and monitor-
ing of the gases and
groundwater and surface
water at the site, which
Darabi & Associates is to
do.)
Gordon maintains
that the language of the

Request for Proposal
(RFP) did not contain a
requirement for unlimit-
ed liability; otherwise, he
would have bid a higher
price. He makes the point
that two other of the four
.contractors who bid on
task 3 were within $5,400
and $9,228 of his bid,
which he interprets to
mean that they also
understood the liability
to be limited. The excep-
tion was Darabi &
Associates, which
presently holds the con-
tract and which bid
$156,770 for task 3, a dif-
ference of $129,770 over
RAI.
The issue of unlimit-
ed liability, and who
assumes that liability in
the event of a catastroph-
ic event at the landfill, is
one that has been at the
crux of the landfill
debate since the issue
first surfaced more than
six months ago. Darabi
maintains that he
presently. assumes
unlimited liability for
anything that may go
wrong at the landfill, a
consideration that goes
into his pricing calcula-
tions and that partly
explains his $17,950
monthly charge, which
amounts to $215,400
annually
This argument,
which at least three com-
missioners strongly sup-
port, is that absent total
assumption of liability
by the engineer, the coun-
ty stands exposed and
vulnerable. It' an argu-
ment that apparently
continues to reverberate.
The counterargu-
ment is one posed by
Boyd, a critic of the pres-
ent arrangement and the
strongest advocate for
change of the contractor.
Boyd argues that the
risks of a catastrophic
occurrence at the landfill
are exaggerated, and
moreover, that if one
were to occur, no engi-
neer is going to hold the
county harmless, no mat-
ter whatever claims are
made to the contrary
It's an issue that has
become invested with
emotion on both sides
and that involves person-
al, political and philo-
sophical differences, as
well as questions of
trust, loyalty and other
unquantifiable consider-
ations.
It's also an issue that
county officials have
been wrestling with
going on seven months
now and that continues
to elude a resolution.
Schleicher offered on
Wednesday that in the
event that the differences
with RAI cannot be
resolved on task 3, the
alternatives were to pro-
ceed to the next lowest
bidder on the list or re-
advertise the contract
again.


It furthers argues
that the Senate failed to
attain the required two-
thirds. majority to
approve the measure,
which in effect invali-
dates the Act.
Count 1 of the suit
argues that the Florida
Constitution exclusively
reserves to the Supreme
Court the right to adopt
the rules of practices
and procedures in all
state courts and that the
only way that the
Legislature can consti-
tutibnally amend the
court rules on practice
and procedures is by a
2/3 vote, which the
Senate failed to do.
Count 2 argues that
the basis of the deferen-
tial standard, which the
Act seeks to eliminate,
derives from the sepa-
ration of powers
among the executive,
legislative and judicial
branches of govern-


ment, as provided in
the Florida
Constitution.
"Each branch of
government is a sepa-
rate but equal unit of
government," the com-
plaint argues. "The
deference to be applied
between the respective
branches of govern-
ment is based upon
this separation of
power... In the exercise
of their constitutional
and statutory home
rule powers, a county
or municipal ordi-
nance is a legislative
act entitled to the same
separation of powers
protections as a special
act or general law
enacted by the
Legislature."
Count 3 challenges
the constitutionality of
the Act, as it essential-
ly constitutes an
unfunded mandate in
that it requires local

and came up with $1 mil-
lion. We also prepared a
third set of numbers if
you impose an addition-
al gas tax., It's a good
time to do it. You can
save a lot of money by
doing some refinancing
now."
In the letter to
Reams, Cellon was more
specific. He proposed
three financing scenar-
ios for transportation
improvements that he
said would keep the debt
service at about $305,000
annually the same as

extended out eight, 18 or
28 years respectively
"Obviously, addi-
tional new money could
be raised if the county
desired to increase the
present annual debt
service," Cellon wrote.
In the letter also, he
offered other monies
that could be raised by
the refinancing of the
jail bonds, of which
$2,255,000 remains out-
standing.
Cellon praised

The stipulated rate

governments to expend

tional burdens of proof

prior to adoption of

Count 4 challenges
the constitutionality of
the Act, arguing that
the effect of the Act is
to substantially reduce
the ability of cities and
counties to impose and
collect impact fees and
thus places significant
restrictions on their
ability to raise rev-
enues in the aggregate.
Moreover, the provi-
sion was not adopted
by a 2/3 majority of the
Senate as required.
The suit asks the
court to find the Act
unconstitutional and
invalidate it.
Jefferson County

impact fees on the
books, two of which
are dormant.

Cellon said, adding that
he had proposed similar
refunding opportunities
to the previous clerk and
had also brought them to
the board's attention on
numerous occasions
during the last seven
years without any suc-
cess.
"I'm impressed with
Kirk's aggressiveness,"
Cellon said.

vations that commis-
sioners may have had

Reams assured the board .
that the county wouldn'tI

would only incur a cost

Friday, March 5, at the

Randy Hock, band
member of Low Flying

this event in an effort to
give back to Big Bend
Hospice. "Hospice care
came into our lives five
years ago when my moth-

Hock. "Every day some-
one from Hospice assisted
her, and made her life, and
ours, more manageable. It
seems like everyone I talk
to has been touched by the
caring people at Hospice.
They became like family


to us. It wasn't just that
they cared... they were
experts in every way...
medically, emotionally,
spiritually, and just being
a companion. Hospice was
there for our family for so
long, that I felt I needed to
give back and help

COUNTY


Author Dave Lapham To Include


Palmer House In New Book


FRAN HUNT
Monticello News
Staff Writer
Author Dave Lapham
came to Monticello
recently by invitation of
Betty Davis and Lisa
Guancial of the Big Bend
Ghost Trackers, and
Lapham is going to
include the Palmer House
of Monticello as one of
many in the state, to be
included in his next book.
"Last spring John
Kachuba, a writer and
editor for Clerisy Press in
Cincinnati, happened to
be in St. Augustine stay-
ing at the St. Francis Inn,
which I wrote about in
my book, Ghosts of St.
Augustine, and happened
to see my books and liked
them," said Lapham.
"Clerisy Press is doing a
series of books, America's
Haunted Road Trip, and
John is the editor, so he
called me and asked if I'd
do Florida, so I'm busy
putting together


Ghosthunting Florida,
which will come out next
September."
Lapham went on to
explain; "It will include
30-36 stories of about
1,500 words each from
around the state, plus
another 12-15 500-word
vignettes called Spotlight
on Ghosts, scattered
throughout the book.
"I'm covering the
whole state from
Pensacola to Key West, so
I have to choose carefully,
and I've been relying
heavily on people like
Betty (who is really a fan-
tastic lady along with her
pal, Lisa) to guide me.
She suggested that I do
the Palmer House," said
Lapham.
"I'm also doing
Knotts in Tallahassee, the
QMT. in Quincy, and the
Coombs Inn in
Apalachicola. In
Pensacola I'm going to do
three places, but I'm not
exactly sure where yet,"


Author Dave Lapham
Lapham said. In each
story I try to include
about as much history as
paranormal activity, and,
if you've read my other
two books, you'll see that
I try to make my stories
as interesting as possible,
as opposed to just saying
here's a ghost, here's
what it does."
Lapham said he
enjoyed Monticello so
much that he planned to
return soon and spend


more time here. "We
(Lapham and his wife)
were there Saturday Feb.
6, and, although I wasn't
in your town for very
long, I thought it was
lovely. It had a really neat
small town feel to it, like
Ottumwa, Iowa, where I
grew up," he added. I'm
going to bring my wife up
there in the next few
weeks."
While he was here,
Davis and Guancial told
him of different happen-
ings, investigations and
particular video and pho-
tos they had taken, and
Davis said they hope to
enlighten him even more
so on Monticello's haunt-
ed history upon his next


elderly friend of ours (he
and his wife) about her
life during the Second
World War. It has just
been published by
Outskirts Press and is
titled Crossing the Elde
Bridge.
"I'm from Iowa origi-
nally but joined the
Marines after a short
stint in college," said
Lapham. "Then I got an
appointment to the Naval
Academy and four years
later, was, commissioned
as a 2nd Lt. in the Marine
Corps. I retired from the
Marines and then spent
20 years in the defense
industry before retiring
for good in 2003. Since
then I've been writing.

wife and I were in a book
store in St. Augustine,
and the two clerks were
complaining to each
other that there was no
book of ghost stories
about the oldest city in
the United States. That's
when I started Ghosts of
St. Augustine, which was
published by Pineapple

Ancient City Hauntings in
2004, also published by
Pineapple.

Index Funds Good Investment For All Levels Of Wealth

Princeton professor concludes revealing study


For the wealthy,
index funds have an
image problem. They
are considered the econ-
omy cars of the invest-
ing world: they'll get you
there but not in style
and you're always wor-
ried they may break
down. Anyone at a seri-
ous level of wealth, the
thinking goes, needs, the
equivalent of a luxury
sedan, with strategic
stock choices, hedge
funds, private equity,
real estate.
Best known for his
classic investment trea-
tise, "A Random Walk
Down Wall Street," Mr.
Malkiel has just pub-
lished "The Elements of
Investing" with Charles
Ellis, an investment con-
sultant (Wiley, 2009). The
book, an unabashed
homage to "The
Elements of Style" by
William Strunk Jr. and
E. B. White, is fOcused
on the cleanest, simplest
ways for people to invest
their savings. He argues
that while people of
modest means are hurt
by not saving regularly,
wealthy people lose out
by chasing the latest,
greatest investment.
Mr. Malkiel, a pro-
fessor of economics at
Princeton University,
has long advocated
index funds. What's
striking now is his belief
that the wealthiest
would have fine returns
without the volatility


and high fees if they
simply used indexes to
diversify their money
across asset classes.
"This is still a strate-
gy that is good for people
of all income levels," he
said. "If I took all the
mutual funds that exist-
ed in the early 1970s and
asked the question how
many really beat the
market through 2009,
you can count them on
the fingers of one hand."
There are plenty of
dissenters to this view.
James T. Tierney Jr., a
senior vice president at
W P. Stewart &
Company, which has $1.6
billion invested in 15 to
20 stocks, equated index-
ing to judging baseball
players against the
league average. "It's like
saying all hitters hit
.275," he said. "That's
not the case. Some hit
.325 and some hit .200. If
you find the ones with
the higher average,
you're adding real
value."
The argument
between advocates of
the two approaches -
indexing versus active
managing is an old
one and will not be
resolved here. But Mr.
Malkiel's assertion that
even the wealthiest
investors should use
indexes is intriguing.
What follows are his
main arguments in favor
of indexing and the
rebuttals from advisers


who earn their livings
doing the opposite.

Inactivity Strategy
Mr. Malkiel has long
said that no one can con-
sistently pick winning
stocks and bonds. He
argues that index funds
are the best, low-cost
ways to invest money
you will need. "We say to
people in the book,
'Don't try to time the
market,' he said. "It's
not that you can't do it;
it's that you won't do it.
The emotions will get a
hold of you."
He pushes everyone
to stick instead to a bal-
ance of stocks and bonds
that are right for their
age and to rebalance this
annually so the propor-
tions remain the same.
Yet in this sense, his
advice is not so different
from what strategists at
wealth management
firms do.
"Asset allocation is
the most important deci-
sion 90 percent of
returns extend from
that," said Joseph
Jennings, director of
investments in
Baltimore for PNC
Wealth Management.
On the other hand,
Mr. Tierney argued that
W. P. Stewart's concen-
trated approach to stock
picking serves high-net-
worth investors better.
"We're selecting high-
quality companies with
earnings streams and


eliminating all the bad
stocks in the S.& P that
you have to own because
it's an index," he said.
Mr. Tierney pointed
out that his strategy has
consistently beat the
Standard & Poor's 500-
stock index. Since the
fund's inception in 1974,
it has outperformed the
S.& P in its 28 positive
years, 23.3 percent to 19.9
percent, and in the
index's seven down
years, negative 2.9 per-
cent versus negative 13.7
percent.

Fees
Of course, all of W.
P. Stewart's returns
were reported with its
average management fee
of 1.2 percent. And this
is the area where Mr.
Malkiel's feelings are
strongest.
While the old adage
says you get what you
pay for, Mr. Malkiel
argues the opposite.
"The one thing I'm
absolutely sure about is
the lessI pay to the pur-
veyor of the service, the
more that will be left for
me," he said. "Whatever
bad things happen with
buying index funds,
things are worse with
actively managed
funds."
This makes sense for
the modest investor
with a straightforward
portfolio. But the coun-
terargument is that the
wealthy need more

Tax Credit Benefits First-Time and Repeat Homebuyers
Bankers are Prepared for House Hunters, out in Full Force before Credit Extension Ends


With the extension
of the $8,0,00 first-time
homebuyer tax credit
and the addition of a
$6,500 repeat homebuy-
er tax credit, house
hunters are out in full
force, trying to find a
home before the credit
extension ends. To qual-
ify for the credit, buyers
must sign a contract for
purchase by April 30,
and complete the trans-
action by June 30.
Capital City Bank
associates are gearing
up to help clients take
advantage of all the
opportunities available
to first-time homebuy-
ers, including bond
issues available in
Florida's Alachua,
Bradford, Citrus,
Hernando, Jefferson,


Taylor and Wakulla
counties.
"With bond money
available at a great low
rate and potential sav-
ings through the tax
credit, now may be the
perfect time to make a
house your home," said
Karen Hager, residen-
tial lending executive
with Capital City Bank.
"Some buyers may also
qualify for down pay-
ment assistance. Our
bankers are prepared to
help determine what
type of mortgage is the
best fit."
These tax credits
could potentially bene-
fit thousands of new
and repeat home buy-
ers, but some may miss
out by not realizing
they are eligible for the


credit. Here are some
facts that can help buy-
ers determine if they
qualify for a homebuyer
tax credit.
The first-time
homebuyer tax credit of
up to $8,000 is available
for new buyers purchas-
ing on or after January
1, 2009, and on or before
April 30, 2010.
The repeat home-
buyer tax credit of up to
$6,500 is available for
buyers who have owned
a home for five consecu-
tive years out of eight
prior years. This
applies to homes sold
after Nov. 6, 2009, and on
or before April 30, 2010.
Homes priced at
$800,000 or more are not
eligible for either home-
buyer tax credit.


Members of the mil-
itary, the Foreign
Service or the intelli-
gence community may
be eligible for expanded
tax credit benefits.
According to Hager,
Capital City Bank offers
a wide variety of mort-
gage products that can
be customized to fit any
need. For more infor-
mation, contact a
Capital City Bank mort-
gage account executive
at 800.245.7194.


advice because of the
complexity of their
assets, and that the
advice is worth the fees;
(Mr. Malkiel would say
the rich just need more
tax-planning advice.)
"I understand
Malkiel's argument
about fees; they should
not be overlooked," Mr.
Jennings said. "But
there are other factors,
tod. What is the client
trying to accomplish?
What are they looking to
do?"
When it comes to
fees, Mr. Malkiel
reserves his harshest
words for those favorite
pre-recession invest-
ments: hedge funds. He
contends that no one -
except university
endowment managers
- should invest in
them, mainly because of
their fees typically a 2
percent management fee
and 20 percent of gains.
Hedge funds, he said,
are "great deals for the
hedge fund managers
but not super deals for
the investors."

No Alternatives
Even Mr. Malkiel's
admirers disagree with
his stance against alter-
native investments.
They argue that wealthy,
sophisticated investors
are shortchanged if
they do not. have the
ability to, say, bet
against the stock of a
company, as some hedge
funds do.
"Being able to short
stocks is a very impor-
tant tool," said Rex
Macey, chief investment
officer of Wilmington
Trust, who calls himself
an admirer of Mr.
Malkiel. "If you're long
only, all you can do is
not hold a stock. If you
have an opinion and
insight into a company
that is not good, you
have to be able to short
it."
But Mr. Macey
added, "Burton is
absolutely right that you
have to be careful of


fees."
Still,


even if hedge


funds' fees were not so
high, Mr. Malkiel has
another objection to
them.
"There are very few
that are any good," he
said. He added that his
research had shown the
good hedge funds of one
era were not the good
ones of another. And
even if the hedge fund is
a good one, he said, it's
likely to be selective in
its investors or simply
be closed to new ones.
This comes back to
his argument for index-
ing broadly and avoid-
ing alternative invest-
ments.
"You don't need a
commodities fund if
you're really well diver-
sified and into emerging
markets," he said.
"You're going to have
some investments in
Brazil, which is natural
resource rich. It's sim-
ple."

His Portfolio
Unlike most advis-
ers, Mr. Malkiel vas
willing to divulge his
own investments.
Through his best-selling
books and his various
board seats Mr. Malkiel,
78, is wealthy enough to
have a top adviser. But
he said he indexes all
the money he needs for
his retirement.
"My investments
are broken down almost
exactly as I indicated,"
he said. He has put in
index funds the money
from his individual
retirement account, his
403(b) plan for teach-'
ers the equivalent of a
401(k) and the fees he
receives from sitting on
various boards.
In addition, he said,
he invests in municipal
bonds. "I don't buy a
fund for that because I
think I'm capable of
doing that myself, but
most people should buy
a fund," he said.
"Beyond that, I buy a
few stocks because it's
fun."
"All the serious
money," he added, "is
indexed."

FUNDRAISER SET FOR


ANGIE THIGPEN BENNETT


By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Unity Baptist Church, located on Highway 145
North in Hanson in Madison County, will hold a
fundraising gospel sing and cake auction for
Angie Thigpen Bennett on Saturday evening, Feb..
20.
A 32-year-old single mother with three chil-
dren, Angle was recently diagnosed with throat
cancer. She has no job and no health insurance
and must undergo treatment for the disease.
The cake auction will begin at 6 p.m. A sing
will follow at 7 p.m., featuring the Master's, the
Reflectsons and local talent.
All proceeds from the cake auction and the
love offering received at the sing will go towards
Angle's medical expenses.
Angle is the daughter of Tommy and Marie
Glaze Thigpen, formerly of Monticello, of
Madison.


AFTERR


Eddie Yon, Pastor
Restored Glory Christian
Center
Exodus 7:3 "And I
will harden Pharaoh's
heart, and multiply my
signs and my wonders in
the land of Egypt."
Throughout my pro-
fessional and military
career, I have occasion-
ally seen and experi-
enced the hatred of a
supervisor, or someone
in authority, over me.
While it is true that I am
generally a person who
is easy to get along with,
I can have my moments.
Nevertheless, in certain
situations, I could not
understand why in the
world the person hated
me.
One example that
comes to mind was
when I was in the mili-
tary I had a supervisor
who was often "neck-
deep" into everything I
did, even though my sec-
tion always received a
"no deficiencies noted"
inspections rating. In
other words, I did a good
job and was pretty effi-
cient, yet I was often
stressed, oppressed, and
under duress. To trans-
late my situation into a
Y2K term... my supervi-
sor was filled with
"hater-aid."
Of course, many of
you may not be familiar
with this term. It is
derived from the sports
drink Gatorade, which
was created to aid one's
body after physical exer-
tion by preventing dehy-
dration. "Hater-aid," on
the other hand, was cre-
ated to assassinate by


preventing another's
destiny from being ful-
filled. Even so, in the
process of trying to hin-
der you, the person who
is filled with this poison
may really be assisting
you in ways that he or
she could never imag-
ine.
In our text, we see
God tell Moses "I [He]
will harden Pharaoh's
heart," not the devil, nor
evil spirits, but "I [He.]"
God himself hardened
the heart of Pharaoh.
Quite often we are quick
to believe that it's the
devil behind that person
of authority "not lik-
ing" us. I'm sure that
after suffering under
Pharaoh's large dose of
"hater-aid," some of the
children of Israel felt
the same way. But on
occasion, it might just
be God. Stay connected
with me, and I'll
explain.
God said, "I will
harden Pharaoh's
heart" simply because
Israel, God's children,
got too comfortable
where they were, and
where they were was not
the end He had designed
for them. God did not
become their God so
that they could remain
under the rule of some-
one else. If He told them,
"you will be the head
and not the tail, above
only and never beneath"
(Deuteronomy 28,) how
could He allow them to
stay where they were,
They simply got com-
fortable and forgot the
covenant. So what did
God do? He pushed them

out of the nest and made
them take flight.
What I really want
you to understand is,
God is so involved in
your destiny that He
could even utilize the
hatred of others to pro-
pel you. It's not His
pleasure for you to stay
"the tail." You must
excel! So often, I've seen
people enter job situa-
tions that were wonder-
ful, then over time
turned sour, and the
employees were quick to
proclaim, "The devil is
busy." I'm not doubting
that the enemy is in the
work place; believe me,
I've experienced that
first hand. But some-
times, we need to recog-
nize that it might be God
forcing us to "take-
flight."
It took me years to
really understand what
was going on in my situ-
ation. I thought that it
was old Satan at work
simply trying to keep
me down. I wondered
why does this guy hate
me. I never did anything
to him. I'm working for
him and coming
through inspections
with perfect ratings, so
what's going on?
Now I know that all


it




[D!


it was was hater-aid.
Hate Aiding me to get
where God wanted me to
be. God had something
greater for me at the
next stop. And, He also
has the same for you. We
have new friends that
are awaiting our arrival.
We have opportunities
that are hoping that we
show up. We even have
peace to the point that
when we go home every
day, we can actually
leave the job or the situ-
ation behind. It will no
longer follow you, upset
you, and worry you after
you depart the premises.
There is bigger, there is
better, and God has it for
you. So don't hate the
aid, let the hate aid you!
