By Dec. I, 2008, all counties
and municipalities ( ith the excep-

Local governments that fail to

Under the concurrency element,
school capacity must be in place or

three years after final subdivision or

The 55th Watermelon Festival
drew the largest crowd in recent
memory, as throngs filled the city,
enjoying the variety of events on-
A festive mood permeated the at-
mosphere, and a slight breeze
helped make the heat less intense
than in other years.
CO-chair Mary Frances Drawdy
said that in addition to a larger
crowd this year, "they also stayed
"Last year we saw a wonderful
crowd and this year was better.
The little bit of rain we had was
just enough to cool it off, so it was-
n't too hot or miserable."
Crowds lined the streets, ready-
ing for the parade, which began as
scheduled at the stroke of 10 a.m..
Sirens blared from the many law
enforcement vehicles, fire trucks
from departments all over the
county, and ambulances.
Leading the parade was Parade
Grand Marshall Steve Andris fol-
lowed by the Marine Corps March-
ing Band, which thrilled spectators
with its strong beat and cadence.
Applause erupted on all sides
when the band passed marching

of the 50's, to the delight of all.
As the many participants traveled
through the streets, children were
delighted with the number of treats
thrown into the crowd, including
candy, beaded necklaces, small
Frisbees and foam footballs.
The Health Department handed
out health related items as tooth-
brushes, pedometers and the like.
At the conclusion of the parade,
spectators walked the streets, mov-
ing through the assorted attractions,
the vendors 'booths, and the Car
Show at FMB.
Music from the 50's was played
at the show, and one couple, Curt
Masak and Ruth Didief, thrilled
those at the car show when they be-
gan performing dances of the times
complete with all the right moves
in the FMB parking lot.

Vendors booths were packed
tightly along the side streets, fea-

toys to handmade arts and crafts,
from iguanas to turtles and from

The food court was just as busy,

tional watermelon slices to alligator
kabobs, from barbecue ribs to corn
on the cob, from elephant ears to
ice cream and from popcorn to
Spectators gathered observing the
many platform events, and children
enjoyed activities such as face
painting, games and traditional fa-

As the morning slid into after-

crowds seemingly as dense as they
were earlier in the day.
Attendees seemed reluctant to

Look for changes in the court-
house, in the form of added security

Court Chief Judge Charles Francis,
commissioners have agreed to ex-

corridor where the metal detector
The wall will have a door that the
judges will be able to open and

for correctional officers bringing jail
inmates into the courtroom.
The alternative, according to corn-
missioners, would be to hire a full-
time deputy -- something they say
the county can't afford.
"We felt this was the cheaper way
to go," Commission Chairman Skeet
Joyner said in explanation of the
Clerk of Court Dale Boatwright
pointed out Monday that $14,000 of
the $16,000 would be a one-time ex-
penditure, with $2,000 a recurring
expenditure. Compare that with the
recurring cost of maintaining a full-
time deputy, he said.
He said the changes have been a
long time in coming. In fact, ever
since Francis took over as chief jus-
tice, the latter has been pushing for
more security, Boatwright said.
He allowed that the recent court-
house shootings in Georgia and
Texas had played a part in the con-
siderations. But the latter incidents
had in no way prompted the consid-
erations, he said.
"We have been discussing this is-
sue for over two years now," Boat-
wright said. "The lack of security
has been a long-standing problem,
especially in small towns with old
courthouses. With four entrances,

Howard Academy Graduates
Celebrate 50th Reunion
Approximate 40 graduates of the-
Howard Academy class of 1955,

recently to celebrate the 'gold,
anniversary and the old academy
campus, now the Boys and Girls
The motto of the graduates was
proudly displayed on the program:
"Good, better, best! Never let it
rest. Until your good is better and
your better best."
The celebration was enjoyed by
graduates from* Monticello, other
points in Florida, Georgia, New
York and Chicago.
Coordinator Johnnie Mae
Seabrooks-Abrams, said the three
days of celebration was a very
memorable occasion with much
reminiscing, reflecting and
catching up on years past with their
- lives events over the last 50 years.
The banquet was held at Diane's
Place and the featured speaker was
1955 class Valedictorian Lorraine
Seabrooks-Vaught of Miami.
"The presence of two of our
teachers, Hazel Fitz of Tallahassee
and Emma Stokes of Monticello,
along with a delicious meal
prepared by Diane and staff, was
out of sight," said
Attendees enjoyed a meal of
good old fashioned soul food with
everything from collard greens to
fresh green beans, baked and fried
chicken, salad, macaroni and

they stay out of the landfill.
Moderator and Resident Paul
Davis encourages anyone living in
the county or surrounding areas to

any money on this venture, as all
items must be given away, and can-
not be sold or traded.
All are encouraged to freecycle
their unwanted items, rather than
tossing them away.

losing weight right along and the
scale is now atoning for its sins.
So, I stepped back on the scale,
chortling a bit I admit, and guess
what, I weigh 88 pounds.
Let's see what it says after the
shower, I thought. Shower over, I'm
back on the scale and I still weigh
88 pounds. I guess I didn't take on
too much water!
I was on a temporary high. It was
kind of like the time in Miami when
I deposited $200 in my checking ac-
count and the teller gave me a re-
ceipt for $100,000.
I knew I didn't have $100,000 in
my checking account, but I got a
temporary high with that deposit slip
tucked in my pocket.
I said nothing to Pat about the
scale malfunctioning expecting her
to get some kind of high out of her
Things didn't work out that way.
She weighed and said, "Scale's
I said I feel a column coming on.
She said, "Good, I'll send it to my
sister 'cause she gave me that scale.
Resident Gives Her View
On Humane Society Events
Your readers must be enjoying the
recent letters in this paper for their
One of the last articles read like
something out of "National Geor-
graphic," with words like "cannibal-
izing," "malicious attacks,"
"sabotage," and "sour grapes."
I won't deny that I have had is-
sues with the Jefferson County Hu-
mane Society, Inc. (JCHSI) Board
since the meeting of April 2004..
The meeting was held to discuss
initial negotiations of intent to
merge with Extended Circle Ani-
mal Haven (ECAH.)
Previous meetings held for mem-
bers to suggest alternatives to the
merger, which could save JCHSI,
Our Board of Directors had al-
ready offered to step down if the
community would not approve the
The demonstrative group of citi-
zens had no reason to become "con-
tentious" and "oust" our Board
members and the representatives
I did not approach the new Board
until September when I read Wendy
Moss' letter of resignation.
Among the reasons she stated for
resigning was "the failure of several
Board members to honor their
pledge to function as a professional
business, operate with good man-
agement policies, and serve with
honesty and integrity."
She did not mention "frustration."
I attended three meetings and had
serious concerns about the Board's
Ms. Moss' leadership had brought
JCHSI the best organizational struc-
ture it had ever enjoyed, but it was
obvious that if some of those she
left behind continued to operate in
this fashion, they would place the
501 (c) 3 status of JCHSI at risk.
The tax benefits of good faith do-
nors who graciously give to JCHS
would also be placed at risk.
In October, I provided helpful in
formation, requested records any
general member is entitled to review
by State Statute, asked for clarifica-
tion of Board decisions, and sug-
In late November, when they re-
fused to respond, Ms. Moss and I
combined our efforts and set a date
of Dec. 8 to meet with a Board
member to review the records at the
On the evening of Dec. 7, while
attending a City Council meeting on
animal control, someone from the
Humane Society had delivered a let-
ter of expulsion to my home and left
a letter denying membership rights
at Ms. Moss' residence.
The JCHSI Board may claim they
follow Roberts Rules of Order and
Florida State Statutes, but some peo-
ple understand them as well as a for-
eign film without subtitles.
The letter of expulsion the Board
sent me is full of misinterpretations.
As stated, they charged me with
the "illegal, secret taping" of an
"open public meeting."

Citizen Determined To Get
Help With Sewer Gas Issue
My thanks to Senior Staff Writer,
Lazaro Aleman, for the competent
coverage he gave my presentation
on Sewer Gas to the Monticello City
Council during its June 7th meeting.
Sewer Gas problems have been
with us for a long time. Air Quality
and Environmental Technology
which can detect and analyze the
contents of Sewer Gas are relatively
new and expensive.
Consequently, Jefferson County
and the City of Monticello still use
the old fashioned system: "Take a
deep breath. If you smell it, you
may have it. If you can't smell it,
you ain't (sic) got it."
The City of Monticello and I are at
a stalemate over who has the prime
responsibility to detect the source of
Sewer Gas and correct the problem,
the City, or the property owner.
In my complaint to the City, its
position is clear: "They have done
all they know to do."
Does this dogmatic approach by
the City automatically shift the re-
sponsibility to the property owner? I
To assist the City in locating and
correcting sewer problems, which I
consider to be widespread in the
City, I contacted the US Environ-
mental Protection Agency and asked
for its help.
They have assigned a representa-
tive to address this problem.
I have written a request to the US
Agency for Toxic Substances and
Disease Registry and asked them to
use their technology and expertise to
conduct a study in my
neighborhood, such as the one they
conducted in Scottsdale, AZ.
I have talked with the county
Health Department and suggested
they obtain a Sewer Gas analyzing
device for the County.
li: the future, I may ask for help
from the US Center for Disease
By nature I am not a crusader. I
wonder why I conduct research and
am contacting organizations which
can help the citizens of Jefferson
County cope with this serious health
Isn't government suppose to per-
form this type of work for its citi-

ing the Watermelon Festival.
The play re-tells the story of Lit-

The wolf is upset because he is
known as a bad guy, but he is really
kind, sensitive, thoughtful, and cul-
After refreshing the audience's
memory regarding the traditional
rendition of Red Riding Hood, the
wolf tells it like it really happened.
He shows the true Red, and re-
veals his plan with Grandma to
teach Red a badly needed lesson.
He hopes that the audience would
see his side of the story, and realize
there are two sides to every story,_
and learn a lesson in humility and

James Muchovej said that elec-

next year," he added.
This was the first year for an out-

try to shorten the lines inside," he
added. Approximately 100 meals
