brought Living Waters to life two

the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection, a
paean to the waters which cradle,
and nurture, the Sunshine State..
'"The response to Living Waters
was so dynamic," said Niki
Butcher, adding that the film
touched viewers not only on an
emotional level,;but an intellectu-
al .one, the project a mold for
future endeavors of a similar ilk.
""It's been good for the state of
Florida," Niki Butcher continued.
'There is awareness ,there that
the waters bordering Florida are
being taken care of."

'"Through these stories that I

said, noting the film will attempt
to capture in 57 running minutes
everything from Indian history
and pre-Ci\il War days along the

We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Repon. This report is designed to inform you about the
quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable
supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment
process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is
ground water from 3 wells. The wells draw from the Floridan- Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the
only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection purposes.
The Department of Environmental Protection is in he process of.conducting Source Water Assessments (SWA) for all
public waler systems in Florida. These assessments will identity and assess any potential sources of contamination in the
vicinity ol your water supply. A SWA report lor this system is available or will be by July 1, 2005 at the DEP SWAPP web
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Wayne Gable at 850-762-3280
or PO Box 6 Altha, FI 23421. We encourage our valued customersto be informed about their water utility. II you want to
learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. Tney are held on the second Tuesday of each month
at 6:00 PM.
The Town of Altha routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules,
.and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report s based on the results of our monitoring lor the period of
January 1 to December 31, 2004. Data obtained before January 1, 2004, and presented in this report are Irom the most
recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've
provided The following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set
as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum ContaminanI Level Goal or MCLG: The level ol a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known'
or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow lor a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, II exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a
water system must follow.
Picocurie per itler IpCI/L) measure of the radioactivity in water
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not round by laboratory analysis.
Pans per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/I) one part by weight of analyle to 1 million parts by weight of the water
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (lpg'l) one part by weight of analyle to 1 billion pans by weight of the water
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL- The highest level or a disinleciant allowed in drinking water There is
convincing evidence that addition ol a disinfectant is necessary lor control of microbial contaminants
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinleclant below which there is no
known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the.benehlis of the use of disinfectants to control microbial

The sources ol drinking water (both lap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs,
and wells. As water travels over the surface ol the land or through the ground, II dissolves naturally occurring minerals
and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence ol animals or from
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
() Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic
systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B), Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater
Sruno'l, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming
tC) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come Irom a variety ol sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoft,
and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of
industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff. and septic
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limil the amount of:certain'
contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish
limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection lor public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water,; may reasonably be expected to cohtaih at -least small amounts of some
contaminants. The'presence of contaminants does not, necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More.
information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling ihe Environmental Protection
Agency's Sale Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-'126-4791.
*In our continuing efforts to maintain a safe and dependable water supply, it may be necessary to make improvements in'
your water system The costs of these improvements may be reflected in the rate structure. Rate adjustments may be
necessary in order to address these improvements.
Sorre' people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-
compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who' have underyone organ
transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk
from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water 'rom their health care providers. EPA/CDC
guidelines o'n appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants
are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-'26-4791).
"W~e at the Town of Altha work around the clock to provide top quality water to every tap," said Wayne Gable. We ask that
all our customers help, us protect our water sources, which are the heart of our community, our way of life and our

Insermon title, "How Can We Help the

gested, "We can give them a ham and

Isn't that the way many of us feel.
about our Christianity? We are willing to
contribute as long as it doesn't cost too
much. We give as long as we remain
comfortable, but don't ask us to give
Christ teaches us that discipleship
comes with costs. The first of these is our
relationships. Jesus said, "If anyone
comes to Me and does not-hate his father
and mother, his wife and children, his
brothers and sisters yes even his own
life he cannot be My disciple (NIV)."
Does Christ expect us to hate those
close to us" That is against the fiflh com-
mandment, "Honor your father and moth-
er (NIVI" Jesus is certainly not contra-
dicitng scripture or teaching disobedience
to the commandments.
Jesus is using a hyperbole. a figure of
speech that Webster says "represents
things much greater or less. than they
really are." In other words. Jesus says
this in this way for shock value.
We cannot put the wishes of our own
parents ahead of Christ. The husband
won'l go to church? The child has a game
on Sunday? Follow Christ. Stand for
truth Obey Christ even if it hurts.
Christ left His Falher in Heaven to
come to earth and die for you. We are nol
greater than our Master. Put Christ ahead
of your family.

Feeling down-cast is to be very unhap-

p.m. In private daycare centers

arrange to pay for the remainder
of the day if they need a full day's
But being the right age doesn't
mean your child is automatically
in the program. You need to pre-
apply, go through an interview
process, and, if accepted, be
issued a certificate to register.
"Parents are really confused
about where to pre-apply," says
Bietenholz, emphasizing that
they shouldn't head to their near-
est school campus to sign up for
the program. To pre-apply for vol-
untary Pre-K, parents can go to
the Early Education and Care
office at the Calhoun County
Library (call 674-9488 for days
and times they are open), or call
the Coalition in Panama City at
1-800-768-8316, or go online at
www.vpkflorida.org to sign up.
Anyone can apply and the pro-
gram is not based on income.
:The interview process began
last week and registration is
expected to begin June 15.
Class size is limited and there
will be at least one teacher and
one paraprofessional in each
classroom. There are an estimat-
ed 14 spaces at both Altha and
Carr, .- along with 50 at
Blountstown Elementary School
(25 students per semester).
Once accepted to the program
and parents choose a location,
they can't switch to another spot.
Lunch will be provided to stu-
dents, however, transportation
will not be available even at the
public schools. In addition, the
county school attendance policy
will be in effect. "In the schools,
we do have the discretion to not
ask them to come back [if they
violate the attendance policy by
missing too many days] because
they're taking someone else's
place," Bietenholz remarks.
Parents are reminded that the
program is completely voluntary
and they don't have to partici-.
pate. However, Superintendent
Mary Sue Neves says she's glad to
see the program available for
local youngsters, "I think it's just
