Monticello city officials are reconsid-
ering the fee that the city charges for a
certain land-use change within a residen-
tial neighborhood.
Specifically, officials are reviewing
the $1,650 fee that the city charges a resi-
dent who requests a special exception use
within an R-l zone.
Scotty Ebberbach, owner of the Daf-
fodale House, a turn of the 20th century
Victorian home on West Washington
Street, requested the review.
Ebberbach told the Monticello City
Council on Nov. 2 that he wanted to con-
vert his house into a bed-and-breakfast
inn and indoor restaurant, for which he
needed a special exception use permit,
given the restrictions against commercial
activities within residential areas.
"I've been extremely challenged in
my endeavors," Ebberbach said. "The fee
used to be $400, which seems a fair price.
But now, it's $1,650. I think $1,650 to have
a change of status for my property is way
over the top."
Ebberbach said he already had a food
and beverage license and was ready to
move forward with his other plans for the
house, but the fee was proving to be a
' stumbling block.
"I'm all about fair and to charge
$1,650 to change the status of my property
is not fair," Ebberbach said.

Florida House Representa-
tive Michelle Rehwinkel
Vasilinda is again proposing to
sponsor legislation that would
get the state collecting sales
taxes on online transactions.
The second-term lawmaker
maintains that Florida's failure
to collect taxes on online sales
may have caused the state to

lose as much as $20 million in
revenues on Cyber Monday
Cyber Monday is a market-
ing term coined in 2005 to de-
scribe the Monday following
Black Friday, the traditional
start of the Christmas shopping
season in the United States.
Rehwinkel Vasilinda bases
her assessment on increasing

Florida is not presently collect-

She contends that the state
"is losing an estimated $2 to $4
billion in sales tax revenues
each year from its failure to col-
lect the sales taxes it is owed on
Internet and catalog sales," and
further argues that the lost rev-
enues would go a long ways to-
ward alleviating some of the
state's many problems.

concludes at 9 p.m., for the
opportunity to take it all in
with the Monticello Main

ent shops and enjoy the
many different holiday ori-
ented treats offered to the
public in those shops. All

p.m. at 290 West
Washington Street, issuing
Christmas treats and
accepting donations of
new, unwrapped toys, to be

distributed to children of
this community and the
spread the joy of giving at
Christmas, through their
annual Christmas drive.
Beginning at 5 p.m.,
visitors can walk the
streets around Dogwood
and Cherry to enjoy a wide
variety of vendors' booths,
which usually include
many different wares for
sale. Everything imagina-
ble can be purchased from
collectables to artwork, to
clothing and jewelry, to
toys and gadgets, to books
and electronics, and a myr-
iad of additional items,

the children.
As is tradition, at 6
p.m., the jolly old soul, St.
Nicholas himself, will be
merrily waving to the
crowd and shouting his
festive ho, ho, ho's to the
young children and the
young at heart as he rides
a fire truck and they circle
the Courthouse a couple
times, then head to their
final destination, the
Wirick-Simmons House.
Hot chocolate will be
served and photos with
Santa will be available by a
professional photographer.
Many children will not
only have the opportunity
to have their photos taken
with Santa, but also talk
with him and tell him what
specifically is on their
Christmas wish lists this
year. This very often
proves to be the highlight
of the children's' evening,
with the lines usually
spreading down the street,
but moving very quickly

already about whose chili

come on down."
Anyone with a taste
for any variety of chili can
find it and sample the culi-
nary talents of the enter-
ing county chefs.
It is not unusual for
spectators .browsing from
booth to booth, and shop to
shop, to come along differ-
ent organizations and'
their Christmas caroling
groups, passing them in
the streets and singing
their festive songs in per-
fect holiday harmony
Mainstreet spokesperson
Margie Stern informed
that there would be no
Christmas parade this
year due to too much
expense and the group
being non-profit and not
able to afford it. She also
advised that there would
be no stage entertainment
this year, however,
Christmas carolers will be
spread throughout the
downtown area, including
at the Monticello News
parking lot where they will
be issuing popcorn, and
coloring contest books.
There will also be live
music in front of The
Brick House Eatery
Jackson's Drug Store will
be giving away door prizes
every hour and there will
be gift certificate drawings
every hour at Milady's
Boutique. Tickets are free,
just stop by the two loca-
tions and fill out the back
of the ticket. Winners do
not have to be present to
win. There will also be a

table set up in the area of
Peddler's Marketplace sell-
ing tickets for a 50/50
drawing. The tickets are $1
Adding to the beauty
of downtown Monticello,
there will be lighted trees
and decorated store win-
dows to admire.
Also while walking
through the streets, it is
nothing unusual this time
of year to spot characters
including Mary riding the
donkey, walking through
the streets, advising visi-
tors of the tenth annual
Bethlehem in Monticello,
which begins at 7 p.m. and
goes until 8:30 p.m., Friday
Dec. 3, and Saturday Dec.
4, on South Water Street
behind the First United
Methodist Church.
Attendees will be able
to walk through the streets
of Bethlehem and experi-
ence life during the time of
the birth of Jesus and see
the angel coming to the
shepherds in the field, the

menders, the market place,
a beggar and tax collector,
blacksmiths, the live nativ-
ity, live animals including
the county's two favorite
resident camels, Jeremiah
and Gracie, and so very
much more.

Archbold Health Services
joined with home care agencies
nationwide in observing
November as National Home Care
and Hospice Month to raise aware-
ness of home care and hospice
services, and salutes those who
bring healing to the home.
The month-long celebration
paid tribute to the dedicated home
care professionals and volunteers
who enable elderly, disabled,
chronically ill or acutely ill indi-
viduals to receive high quality,
compassionate care in the familiar
surroundings of their own homes.
"Given a choice, most people
faced with disability or illness
would prefer home-based health
care," said Clay Campbell, presi-
dent of Archbold Health Services.
"Home health care professionals
provide the high quality health
care and the close personal contact
that allows that to happen."
The development of modern-
day home care focuses on the val-
ues of individual independence
and keeping families together in
times of illness while maintaining
the therapeutic environment of
the home.
The National Association for
Home Care and Hospice estimates
that approximately 12 million indi-
viduals currently receive care
from more than 33,000 providers
due to acute illness, long-term
health conditions, permanent dis-
ability or terminal illness.

Through technological
advances, today's home care offers
a multitude of services including
nursing, therapy, pharmacy, home
medical supplies and equipment.
Hospice and palliative care
promotes comprehensive care for
terminally ill patients with limit-
ing conditions, primarily within
the familiar surroundings of one's
own home. Medical, emotional,
and spiritual care are included for
patients as well as their families.
Education and emotional support
for relatives during the illness and
bereavement support afterwards
are an important part of the scope
of care.
The Hospice philosophy is
designed to bring comfort, peace,
and a sense of dignity at a very
trying time.
Archbold Health Services has
provided home health services in
South Georgia and north Florida
for over 35 years. Its services
include Home Health Services,
Home Medical Equipment Sales
and Rentals, Home IV Infusion,
and Hospice Services.
Carissa Hill, Archbold Home
Health Services community rela-
tions coordinator said, "The serv-
ices Archbold Home Health
Services and VNA of Southwest
Georgia provide have helped
reduce long hospital stays, the
requirement of nursing home
placement and have been an over-
all asset to the community. We are
privileged to bring this alternative
compassionate and much needed
care to the area."

to Venezuela again as a
missionary, where he
laid pipe and added run-

Bert recalls a story,
"There was this guy who
went with us. He was
supposed to be responsi-

pictures. Before we left,
he went into town and
bought a big ol' knife.
Well, when we went to
leave on our flight, they
searched our carry-on.

told myself, 'I better be

The late Dr. Mark McCoy
Elizabeth Baptist Church
In Luke 7:11-18 we read the story of a widow
whose only son died and as he was being carried to the
grave Jesus stopped the procession and raised him
back to life. Why did Jesus give this young man new
life? We read in verse 13, "and when the Lord saw her,
he had compassion on her, and said unto her, weep
not." Often we see in the life of Jesus that He "was
moved with compassion." Compassion in his life was
when He felt their pain and grief. Because He had
compassion He.performed many miracles that fed the
hungry healed the sick, and raised the dead. How does
Jesus perform deeds of love and kindness today? He
can only do it when you and me are motivated with
hearts filled with His love for others. Many times we
are not pained and grieved when we encounter human
suffering. We see so much on television that we have
become immune to it. It has made us complacent to
the point of turning to our own selfish pleasures and
shutting our minds to the heartache all around us.
The man you work next to on the job... do you know
what burdens or sorrows he is carrying today? the
Seller in the booth next to yours... is her heart and life
burdened with family problems? Are you, in the name
of Jesus, reaching out to them?

have the right relationship to Jesus Christ. Whether
it is financial, family, job, school, neighbor, employ-

because of a nonexistent personal relationship

While I was stationed at Udon Thani Thailand,
the Squadron Commander of the largest unit on
base, I had 950 men who were my responsibility. It
would take reams of paper to tell you all of the
problems I faced that year. When I saw the inner
conflict.in many of their'lives my heart went out to
them. Through compassion for their problems I
opened my office door from .7:00 to 9:30 p.m. on
Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday so that they could
come in and talk to me about anything that was
bothering them. It was all kept confidential. I kept
a record. The results were earthshaking. Over 80
percent were m9ral problems and conflicts of con-
science. The only answer I had for them was that,
the compassionate Son of God, Jesus Christ died
for their sins and invited them to come and lay
their lives at the foot of the cross. Christ saved
many of them.

Tigers Snag Regional Title,

First Time Since Early 1990's

ECB Publishing
Staff Writer
The Jefferson
County Tigers snagged
the Class 1-B Region 1
title for the first time
since the early 1990's
(one long-time Tiger
source reported 1991
and a second long-time
Tiger source reported
1994). The Tigers
downed the Lafayette
Hornets for a 27-20
victory, November 26.
The Tigers, then 9-2
going into the contest,
knew that they would be
traveling into a live
Hornets nest against
Lafayette, whose team
was determined for
another shot at the
Tigers following last
year's defeat. The
Hornets got their
opportunity on what
turned out to be a wet,
soggy Friday night as
they played host to the
Tigers in the Class 1B,
Region 1 final. While
coaches reported that
Lafayette did play the
Tigers a lot better than

last season's meeting,
the outcome was still
the same.
Standout Tiger
running back
Devondrick Nealy ran
for 252 yards and a pair
of touchdowns on 36
attempts, as the Tigers
held off the Hornets in
front of a full house at
Dale Walker Field.
Local resident Nellie
Aikens, who religiously
attends the Tigers
games, reported that
two full buses of
residents ventured to
Mayo, not to mention
those who opted to drive
their personal vehicles
to the game and that the
Tigers. stands were
loaded with about 200
local fans, was far more
in attendants than that
of the Hornets.
Freshman Revonte
Robinson. added 86
yards rushing and a
touchdown on nine
carries and also caught
a five-yard scoring pass
for the Tigers.
Jefferson, ranked
fifth in Class 1-B, trailed

by six points at the half
and outscored Lafayette
20-0 in the third quarter
to take control of the
"Throughout this
season our guys have
answered the bell every
time and we came out
and we played our
hearts out against a
great team and came up
short," Lafayette Coach
Joey Pearson said. "In
the third quarter they
(Tigers) came out and
they were going to make
us stop Nealy and
obviously they took
control of the game at
that point."
The Hornets had a
27-yard scoring run on
the fourth play of the
game, which gave
Lafayette a 7-0 edge,
before the Hornets two-
yard touchdown run in
the second quarter,
followed by a failed two-
,point conversion run
attempt to give the
Hornets a 13-7 edge at
halftime, as the rain
started to pour down.
But the third

quarter was critical as
Nealy, who is a three-
star prospect and the
seventh rated all-
purpose back in the
country by Rivals.com,
led the Tigers, who
finished with 327
rushing yards.
Robinson capped
the Tigers opening drive
of the third period with
a nine-yard scoring run
to give the Tigers a 14-13
edge. He later caught a
five-yard scoring pass
from sophomore
quarterback Lenorris
Footman for a 21-13
advantage with 2:19 left
in the period.
The Tigers then
recovered the ensuing
kickoff and Nealy
ripped off a 24-yard run
as the Tigers led 27-13
after three quarters of
SThe Hornets hit
with a 34-yard
touchdown pass with
5:12 left in the game.
The Tigers, however,
picked up three first
downs on their final
drive of the game and

ran out the clock for the
Tigers Offensive
Director Cameron Duke
advised that Nealy was
named the offensive
player of the week and
Denzel Whitfield was
named the defensive
player of the week.
"We made them
work for everything
they had and we gave
ourselves a chance to
win the game, which is
all you can ask," said
Pearson, whose team
did have three
turnovers. "I couldn't
ask anymore from our

runners-up, for this
Friday's state semi-
finals at 7:30 p.m. This
was Jefferson's first
road playoff win since
"The biggest thing
we did was defensively,

we made some :
adjustments at halftime
and kind of changed the ,
scheme up a little bit'
and it really paid
dividends for us," said
first-year Tigers Head
Football Coach Jeremy
Brown. "Mayo was
coming at us with a chip
on their shoulder
because we beat them
pretty bad last year. "We '
knew all week we were ,
going to be in a dog
fight," he added.
Tiger coaches wish
to thank the many
county fans who were
there during the game
supporting their
beloved Tigers and
cheering them to
victory They also
encourage residents to
be at the Friday night
game as the Tigers
continue on the road to
the state championship.
Aikens reported
that local fans are
already setting up buses
and charter buses to

Still Time for Year-end

Financial Moves

Provided by Robert J. Davison

The holiday season is always a busy time of year, so
you're probably pretty busy. But it is important to take some
time now to evaluate year-end financial moves that may be
beneficial in preparing for your financial future.

Which year-end moves should yoi consider? You will
want to talk to your financial advisor and tax and legal pro-
fessionals first, but here are a few ideas to get you started:

eBoost your IRA contributions. You have until April 15,
2011, to fully fund your IRA for the 2010 tax year, but the
sooner you finish with your 2010 contribution, the quicker
you can get started on your 2011 contribution and the
earlier in the year you fund your IRA, the more time you
give your account the opportunity to grow.

*Put more money into college savings plans. If you have a
529 college savings plan for yourself or someone else, con-
sider putting more money in before year-end. You can gift up
to $13,000 ($26,000 per married couple) per person per
year without gift tax consequences. However, this must be
accomplished by year-end.

*Be generous. If you've been thinking of making charitable
gifts, don't put them off any longer. As long as you make a
donation to a qualified charity before the year ends, you can
claim a deduction on your 2010 tax return. For example, if
you donate $100 to a charitable group [either a religious or-
ganization or one that has received 501(c)(3) status from
the Internal Revenue Service], and you're in the 25% tax
bracket, you can deduct $100 (with a tax benefit of $25)
when you file your taxes for 2010, providing, of course, that
you itemize. If you donate stocks or other types of assets, you
may also be able to save on capital gains taxes, because it will
be the charity, not you, that eventually sells those assets.
Sell your "losers." If you own investments that have lost
value since you purchased them, you can sell them before
2010 ends and then use the tax loss to offset capital gins you
may have earned in other investments. If you don't have any
capital gains, you can use up to $3,000 of your tax losses to
offset other ordinary income. If your loss is greater than
$3,000, you can "carry over" the excess and deduct it from
your taxes in future years. However, if you then want to re-
purchase the investment you sold, you'll need to wait at least
31 days to avoid violating the IRS' "wash sale" rules.

*Take capital gains. In 2011, the tax rate on long-term cap-
ital gains is scheduled to increase to 20% for most investors,
up from the 15% rate it's been the last several years. If you
have stocks or other appreciated assets that you were think-
ing of selling in the near future, you might want to do so be-
fore the year comes to a close. However, it's generally not a
good idea to make investment decisions strictly because of tax
consequences. If your appreciated assets are still a part of
your overall financial strategy, you may be better off holding
them for the long term, even with a higher capital gains rate.
Considering these moves before the year ends may help you
better prepare to address you financial picture in 2011.
