A smoke detector and the rapid response of the
homeowner may have very well saved the home from
severe damage very early Monday morning.
Jefferson County Fire Rescue (JCFR) reported
that at 1:35 a.m. Monday they responded to a call
about a house fire located at 8080 Aucilla Highway,
the home of Deloyd Loveless.
The owner stated that the smoke alarm woke him
and his family up.
Upon arrival firefighters found Loveless stand-
ing at the entrance to the back of the porch spraying
water on the northeast side corner of the laundry
room and he had the fire mostly out.

Planning Official
Bill Tellefesen offered
that the property was
zoned mixed-use subur-
ban residential, which
allowed for the requested
use. He recommended
approval of the project,

oper meeting certain
conditions, such as sub-

said his was a family-

for a more detailed
description of the proj-

the lay of the land, which
slopes from north to

was to maintain a buffer

Gordon cited statis-
tics indicating that
dropout rates across
the country were reach-
ing epidemic propor-
tions, particularly
among African-
American students.
She also cited statistics
showing that black
male dropouts led the
nation in arrests; that
dropout rates correlat-
ed with increased
crime rates; and that
dropping out of school
led to higher costs for
social and health serv-
Gordon said no sin-
gle factor explained
why kids dropped out.
Rather, dropping out
was the outcome of
multiple factors and a
lengthy process of dis-
engagement that began
as early as elementary
school, she said.
"Dropping out is
not an event, it's a
process," Gordon said.
She offered that
some kids needed to be
touched and other
needed to be embraced,
literarily and figura-
tively speaking. The
CIS program, she said,
served the two needs,
providing prevention
services (touching),
and intervention serv-
ices (embracing).
Gracey explained
the five basics of the
CIS program, which are
to provide each child
with a one-on-one rela-

rity lights that faced
inward to reduce dis-
turbing the neighbors;
that the primary
entrance would be off St.
Margaret's Church Road,
although negotiations
continued with the
Florida Department of
Transportation for a pos-
sible entrance off U.S. 90;
and that the grounds
would be covered with
gravel rather than
asphalt for the sake of
cutting costs and reduc-
ing runoff, although a
small area would be
paved for handicap acces-
Whitman said the
site would require earth-
work to level parts of the
property, and that the
buildings would be con-
centrated on the parcel's
northern side.
Winston Lee, a
Monticello resident and
professional landscape
architect, asked to speak
as an expert and request-
ed that his comments be
included in the record as
expert testimony
Although not
opposed to the project
per se, Lee noted that the
property served as a
physical and visual
entrance to the city That
aside, he had reviewed
the plan and found that it

tionship with an adult;
a safe place to learn; a
healthy start in life; a
marketable skill to use
upon graduation; and a
chance to give back to
the community
"What we're talk-
ing of tonight is not the
typical local affiliate
like before but a
hybrid," Gracey said.
"We need to identify
what's already here and
bring in additional
resources for the things
that are aren't being
done...We don't have a
magic wand. We build
on what you're already
doing. We help create
new services and fill in
the gaps.
Gracey cited a five-
year $5 million evalua-
tion that the CIS pro-
gram had undergone,
which evaluation she
said constituted the
"gold standard of eval-
uations", and the
results of which
showed that the pro-
gram worked when
appropriately imple-
"We can say there's
never been as complete
and thorough an evalu-
ation of a dropout pro-
gram," Gracey said.
"We can now also say,
yes, we have the evi-
dence that we can
decrease the dropout
rate and increase the
graduation rate. But it
has to be based on our
model. We're talking
about a comprehensive
approach to kids and
coordinating as many
resources as possible in
your community Our
job is to support the
teachers, principals
and administrators."
Gracey asked the
board to think of CIS as

lacked specificity, he
"I'm not against the
project," Lee said. "I just
want to make sure that
the plan meets the coun-
ty's code standards."
Speaking as one who
had submitted many
plans to review boards,
Lee said he found
L a k e s h o r e
Development's plan "not
complete enough". He
well knew how develop-
ers could exploit loop-
holes and omissions in
their plans, he said,
adding the public should
be able to see right from
the onset exactly what
the developer was pro-
Lee proceeded to
enumerate the several
areas of concern he had
with the plan, citing spe-
cific provisions in the
Land Development Code
to back his objections.
What kinds of trees
was the developer going
to plant in the buffers
and at what distances?
Lee asked. Which of the
existing trees of signifi-
cant size on the property
were going to be protect-
ed and how? And of
those trees to be taken
out, how and with kinds
of trees were they to be

a broker for all the pro-
grams that focused on
children's needs. If a
child needed glasses,
mentoring, tutoring,
medical attention, spe-
cial evaluation or what-
ever, CIS would put the
child in contact with
the appropriate experts
and provide the coordi-
nation to meet those
needs, so that teachers
and principals were
free to concentrate
their efforts on their
given areas of expert-
Basically, CIS was a
multipurpose program
that linked the needed
community resources
with the schools to help
support and empower
students to remain in
school and achieve aca-
demically, as well as
prepare for life, Gracey
"CIS is not just
another school pro-
gram," she said. "It
does not focus on only
at-risk youths. It is
available to all kids. We
offer prevention as well
as intervention."
What she was pro-
posing, Gracey said,
was that instead of set-
ting up an independent
organization as had
previously been sug-
gested and actually
done here once, that
the Jefferson County
School District instead
join with the Leon
County CIS, creating in
effect a combined
organization that could
possibly be called the
CIS of Big Bend. Who
knew but that other
counties might decide
to join subsequently,
such as Gadsden
County, she said.
Gracey noted that

for the facility posed
another potential loop-
hole. He said without
specifying the type of
lights to be used upfront,
the developer was free to
use any kind. Likewise
for the buffer, he said. If
the rights-of-way for
these utilities weren't
established upfront,
these rights-of-way
could be put across the
buffer zones, negating
the planting of any
shrubs or trees there-
'A definitive plan
needs to be put before
you at this stage," Lee
said, contesting
Tellefesen's point that
the reason the latter
hadn't asked for the
developer to submit a
complete plan upfront
was that it would force
the developer to incur
costs without knowing if
the plan would even be
"Now is the time to
see the plan, so the pub-
lic can see what is actu-
ally being proposed,"
Lee said.
Susan Stubbs, a resi-
dent to the immediate
west of the proposed
development, expressed
concern about the devel-
opment's potential
impact to her property's
value, especially if the

the previous CIS effort
here had failed because
it was grant funded,
and once the grant
money had been
expended, the commu-
nity had been unable to
raise the necessary
money to keep the pro-
gram going. Her group
wasn't asking the dis-
trict for money this
time around, however.
At least not initially,
she qualified, adding
that the district would
have to contribute
eventually, if the pro-
gram were to become
viable. But that all
would come later, she
At present, all the
two were asking was
for board permission to
present the proposal to
the school principals,
with the understand-
ing that if the latter
bought into the pro-
gram, the board would
seriously consider it,
Gracey said.
"We're not asking
for a commitment," she
said. "What we want
now is for you to say, 'if
you can make it work
with the principals,
you have our bless-
ings'. We're not asking

facility engendered a
flea market atmosphere.
She also worried about
the traffic that the stor-
age facility would
attract and asked that a
traffic study be done.
She wanted the business
to be attractive and wor-
ried about light pollu-
tion and the decimation
of trees.
"I came here from
Memphis," Stubbs said.
"Now I can see the stars.
Lights take out the stars.
It's sad also when you
see trees taken down. It's
hurtful to the trees and
the environment."
Jay Adams said his
property was just west of
Stubbs. A self-described
"free market guy" all his
life, Adams said he did-
n't oppose the develop-
ment, but he wasn't
crazy about it either.
Basically, he had con-
cerns about the buffer
on the north and the
lighting, he said.
"As affected neigh-
bors, we'd like to see
more details," Adams
said. "No lighting is
absolutely critical to the
adjoining properties.

ally agreed with the con-

One commitment
they did require
upfront, however, was
that a representative of
the school district
attended all CIS board
of directors meetings,
Gracey said.
"We need a commit-
ment from the superin-
tendent or his repre-
sentative that he will
serve on the CIS
board," Gracey said.
"And yes, there will
have to be money

School Board
Member Marianne
Arbulu wanted to make
sure she understood
the proposal correctly
"If I hear you right,
it will depend on local
revenues and local vol-
unteers eventually,"
Arbulu said.

expressed concern about
the main entrance being
on St. Margaret's

"I'd be more inclined
to support the project if
the major entrance was

Faglie said.

haven't closed the door
on any ideas."
Washington told
the CIS people that
they would get a
response in July
"We'll put this on
the July agenda and let
you know if we accept
or reject the proposal,"
Washington said.
Started originally
in New York during the
1960s as a program to
get kids off the streets
and back into school,
the effort has evolved
through the years to its
present form. Today,

3,200 schools in 26
states and the District
of Columbia and annu-
ally serves nearly 1.4
million young people
and their families
across the country,
according to the orga-
nization's website.

With the opening of

Management Director
Carol Ellerbee reminds
that now is the time for
families to get every-
thing in order in the
event of an emergency
She said there are
basic items which resi-
dents should stock in
their homes in case of
emergencies, such as
water, food, first aid sup-
plies, clothing, bedding,
tools and emergency
supplies, as well as other
special items. "Keep the
items that you would
most likely need during
an evacuation in an
easy-carry secure con-
tainer," she said.
The Colorado State
University forecast team
has predicted an above
average 2011 Atlantic
basin hurricane season.
The team slightly
reduced its early
December prediction,
but still called for an
active season based on
current La Nina condi-
tions that are expected
to transition to near-
neutral conditions dur-
ing the heart of the hur-
ricane season.
The CSU team now
calls for 16 named
storms instead of 17
forming in the Atlantic
basin between June 1
and Nov. 30. Nine of
those are expected to
turn into hurricanes

Older adults may be among the
most vulnerable victims when hurri-
canes strike. That's why Home
Instead Senior Care has issued a dis-
aster safety preparation checklist to
help prepare seniors for the possibili-
ty of weather emergencies.
"We know that a disaster can be
deadly for some seniors because of
physical and other limitations," said
Scott Harrell, owner of the Home
Instead Office serving Leon, Gadsden,
Jefferson and Wakulla Counties, as
well as the Panhandle. "That's why
the sooner the better for families to
talk with their senior loved ones and
begin preparing in advance for any
kind of emergency that could threat-
en their health or safety Consider
this checklist as you help your older
adult get ready"
Home Instead Senior Care's
Disaster Prep Checklist For Seniors:

Tune in. Contact the local emer-
gency management office to learn
about the most likely natural disas-
ters to strike your area. Stay abreast

of what's going on through your local
radio or television.

Take stock. Decide what your
senior can or can't do in the event of
a natural disaster. Make a list of
what would be needed if a disaster
occurred. For example, if your loved
one is wheelchair-bound, determine
an evacuation strategy ahead of
time. Prepare for whatever disaster
could hit the area.

_ To go or to stay? When deciding
to evacuate, older adults should go
sooner rather than later. By waiting
too long, they may be unable to leave
if they require assistance.

Make a plan. Schedule a family
meeting to develop a plan of action.
Include in your plan key people -
such as neighbors, friends, relatives
and professional caregivers - who
could help.

More than one way out. Seniors
should develop at least two escape

routes: one to evacuate their home
and one to evacuate their community
The local emergency management
office can tell you escape routes out
of the community

Meet up. Designate a place to
meet relatives or key support net-
work people outside the house, as
well as a second location outside the
neighborhood, such as a school or
church. Practice the plan twice a

Get up and "Go Kit." Have an
easy-to-carry backpack including
three days non-perishable food and
water with an additional four days of
food and water readily accessible at
home. Have at least one gallon of bot-
tled water per person per day
Refresh and replace your supplies at
least twice a year. And don't forget the
blanket and paper products such as
toilet paper.

Pack extras and copies. Have at
least a one-month supply of medica-

tion on hand at all times. Make ready
other important documents in a
waterproof protector including
copies of prescriptions, car title regis-
tration and driver's license, insurance
documents and bank account num-
bers, and spare checkbook. Also take
extra eyeglasses and hearing-aid bat-
teries. Label every piece of important
equipment or personal item in case
they are lost.

Your contact list. Compile a con-
tact list and include people on a
senior's support network as well as
doctors and other important health-
care professionals.

If you can't be there. If you're not
living close by to help your loved one,
enlist the help of family or friends, or
contact a professional caregiving

ter preparedness, contact Home

Ronnie McBrayer
I once approached
my life and work as if I
was building a house.
Drive a nail here. Lay a
block there. Smear a bit
of paint in the corner.
Cut out a window now
and again. Figuratively,
this is how I treated my
life, and it is a solid, pow-
erful image. It is also an
image with plenty of
biblical roots.
None other than
Jesus himself said in the
Sermon on the Mount,
'"Anyone who listens to
my teaching and follows
it is wise, like a person
who builds a house on
solid rock." Of course
those who ignore his
teaching, Jesus said, are
like those who build
their lives on a sandy
foundation with collapse
all but imminent.
Paul stuck with the
theme as well, and he
spoke of the possibility
that our lives can be
soundly constructed
from things that will last
like bricks and mortar -
gold, silver, and precious
jewels he called them.
Or, Paul says, we can
foolishly build with the
combustible and
momentary materials of
wood, hay or straw.
It all reminds me of
the story of the Three
Little Pigs and the Big
Bad Wolf: Some things
are built to last. Other
things blow away about
as quickly as they were
created, in spite of our
brave squeals and the
hair of our chinny, chin,
I haven't given up on
this building metaphor
completely, but recently
I did adopt a new narra-
tive. It's not about con-
struction, but decon-
struction. Last year I vis-
ited a housing project in

San Salvador that is
home to more than a
thousand people. With
homes, churches, mar-
kets, and a school, it is a
safe and healthy neigh-
borhood, thus far insu-
lated from so much of
the gang violence, extor-
tion, and troubles of the
city It is no utopia, but it
is a shining light within
a very dangerous section
of the city
The land upon
which this neighbor-
hood sits was given to a
group of USAmerican
volunteers by the city of
San Salvador because
the city had basically
given up on it. It was
nothing but a forsaken
junkyard, filled with
crushed cars, old buses,
dilapidated construction
equipment, and families:
People were living in the
junkyard because they
had no place else to go.
Ultimately, these
people were moved out,
new homes were built,
and the people moved
back in. My favorite part
of this venture, and my
new narrative, involved
a dump truck that was
just too big and heavy to
move. It sat in the mid-
dle of the jobsite
untouched, until six
eight-year-old boys
attacked it.
Every day these lit-
tle boys, none past third
grade, would come to the
site with their hacksaw
blades, pieces of t-shirts
wrapped around the
edges for handles, and
they would saw away
Then they would take
whatever they cut off
and sell it for a few pen-
nies at a time on the
street, helping to mea-
gerly support their fami-

week, and month after
month until one day,
almost like magic, this
huge dump truck weigh-
ing tens of thousands of
pounds was just gone.
Six elementary school-
aged children had con-
sumed it, like vultures
consuming a carcass.
One of the onsite
missionaries told me
that when he felt like
quitting, that when he
thought what he tried to
do didn't matter, or when
overwhelming odds
made it all hopeless, he
would revisit the memo-
ry of those little boys
confronting their dump
truck day after day
They knew, as only chil-
dren can know, that if
they stayed at it long
enough, nothing would
be impossible. The
truck would one day

Those little boys
can help reorient our
lives. We may not
"build" a whole lot with
the few years we have
been given, and parts of
what we build will get
blown away But with
the blessed ignorance of
children, we can keep
sawing - keep parent-
ing, keep teaching, keep
fostering, keep nursing,
keep showing up at
whatever it is we do -
until finally, almost like
magic, the dump trucks

The Nation's leading
Southern Gospel quar-
tet, Gold City, will be in
concert on Thursday
evening, June 30, at 7
p.m., at the Northside
Church of God in Perry,
FL. The Northside
Church of God is located
at 1339 North Byron But-
ler Parkway
Each member of
Gold City will tell you
the single most impor-
tant things in their lives
is their relationship
with God. All things
come from this. Family,
ministry and profession
all stem from knowing
that being a Christian re-
quires making decisions
every day that reflect the
image of the God we
A successful Gold
City, according to its
members, has every-
thing to do with daily
walking with God, fol-
lowing His lead every
step of the way
Ask Tim Riley on
any given day what his
plans for the future are
and you're likely to hear
him say, "To continue
striving to bring glory
and honor to God,
through the greatest

music on earth!"
There's no question-
ing the success of Gold
City Since the group's
formation some 30 years

ago in the historical gold
rush town of Dahlonega,
GA, this Southern
Gospel quartet has con-
sistently remained at the

top of their field.
Songs like "In My
Robe Of White" and "I'll
Think I'll Read It Again"
were immediate suc-

cesses during the
group's earliest years.
Since then, number one
plaques have continued
to compete for shelf

space with industry
Thirty years later,
the group remains on
the forefront of gospel
music with chart-top-
ping songs, "Preach The
Word," "I Cast My Bread
Upon The Water," "What
Children Believe," "It's
Just Another Red Sea"
and many more.
While they're always
presenting new songs,
they don't forget to per-
form the crowd favorites
such as, "When I Get
Carried Away," "Mid-
night Cry," "John Saw"
and Tim Riley's classic
song, "Under Control."
Each night for these
performers is filled
with the sight and
sound of fans and well
wishers clapping their
hands and singing
along with their fa-
vorite songs. From city
to city, state-to-state,
few other groups stay as
busy as these guys do.
From the time their bus
rolls into town, the
tremendous amount of
support they receive
across the country
makes every stop for
Gold City a true night
to remember.

tion, call 850-464-0114 or

But I would not have you
to be ignorant, brethren, concerning
them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not,
even as others which have no hope.
1 Thessalonians 4:13 (KJV)

Physical death is inevitable, but that doesn't make
it any easier to deal with. When a loved one dies,
we grieve for our loss. Fortunately, for believers,
there is hope. If our loved one accepted Christ as
their Savior, they received eternal life, and one day,
we will be reunited with them in heaven.

Florida Depa
- Beat the heat this
summer while having
fun in the sun -
With the tempera-
tures rising this week,
the Florida Department
of Health (DOH) urges
people to take steps to
prevent heat-related ill-
nesses such as heat
stress, exhaustion and
stroke. More than 3,000
people are seen in
emergency rooms each
year for heat-related ill-
"Floridians enjoy
great weather all year,
so as we prepare to
enjoy the summer
months, we want to
remind everyone to use
precaution when in the
sun or exposed to heat,"
said Dr. Conti, Director
of the Division of
Environmental Health
at DOH. "Heat exhaus-
tion can develop after
exposure to high tem-
peratures and not
drinking enough water.
Those who are most
vulnerable to heat
exhaustion are the eld-
erly, infants and small
children, individuals


Of Health Offers Tips To Prevent Heat-Related Illnesses

with medical condi-
tions such as high blood
pressure and individu-
als working or exercis-
ing in a hot environ-
Warning signs of
heat exhaustion vary,
but may include:

Heavy sweating
Muscle cramps
Nausea or vomiting
Moist and cool skin
Fast and weak pulse
Fast and shallow

If heat exhaustion
is suspected, cooling
measures that may be
effective include:
Drinking cool, non-
alcoholic beverages as
directed by a physician
Resting in an air-condi-
tioned environment
Taking a cool show-
er, bath or sponge bath
If left untreated,
heat exhaustion may

progress to heat stroke,
which occurs when the
body becomes unable to
control its temperature.
Immediately seek med-
ical attention if any of
these symptoms are
Hot, dry skin or pro-
fuse sweating
Throbbing headache
High body temperature
Slurred speech


Drink plenty of flu-
ids that do not contain
alcohol or large
amounts of sugar.
Limit sodas because of
the added sugar and
caffeine. Sweat is 99
percent water, so when
you exercise or play,
you lose water. Don't
wait until you are
thirsty to drink fluids
and always make sure
your water is clean.
Add slices of fruit to
water or drink 100 per-

cent juice if you do not
like the taste of water.
Limit outside activity
to morning and evening
hours. Be cautious and
stay out of the sun
when exercising
between 10:00 a.m. and
4:00 p.m. Children, sen-
iors and persons with
health problems should
stay in the coolest avail-
able place, not neces-
sarily indoors.
Rest often in shady
areas, or remain inside
in an air conditioned
Dress for summer
by wearing lightweight,
light-colored and loose
fitting clothing to
reflect heat and sun.
Wear wide-brimmed
hats to shade the sun.
Protect your eyes
and skin by wearing
sunglasses and sun-
screen. Use sunscreens
with SPF 15 or higher
that protect against
both UVA and UVB
rays. Sunburn reduces
your body's ability to
dissipate heat.
Sunscreen should be
applied every 2 to 4

hours, liberally enough
to all sun-exposed areas
that it forms a film
when initially applied.
Do not leave chil-
dren or pets in an unat-
tended vehicle because
the temperature can
reach 135 degrees in
less than ten minutes.

tion on how to prevent
heat-related illnesses in

Control (CDC) for
