Case Of Missing
Child Ends With
Arrest Of Mom
Senior Staff Writer
* The mother of a three-year-old
child whose alleged disappearance
several weeks ago almost triggered
an Amber Alert has been charged
with child neglect.
* The Monticello Police Depart-
ment (MPD) filed the charge against
23-year-old Amber Brungardt, on
Nov. 1. She was arrested Wednes-
day, upon her return to town from
The charge stems from an incident
that occurred in October.
'According to documents filed in
the Clerk of Courts office, Brun-
gardt contacted the MPD at 3:48
a.m. Saturday, Oct. 22, and reported
that her three-year-old son was
Brungardt told investigators that
she had awakened at 3 a.m. to find
her front door open and the child
missing. She further told investiga-
tors that her son "was capable of un-
locking the front door and had un-
locked the door and exited the resi-
dence in the past," according to the
; The child's disappearance trig-
gered a multi-agency search that in-
cluded elements of the MPD, the
Sheriffs Department, the Florida
Highway Patrol and the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforcement.
The estimated cost of the search,
in terms of overtime to the MPD
alone, was $618, according to Police
iChief David Frisby.
Ultimately, officers found the
child unharmed in another part of
town several hours after the
-mother's call. Actually, a resident
called the police department to re-
port that her mother, who lives in
the Roostertown area, had found the
child outside her door in the wee
hours of the morning.
It was never satisfactorily ex-
plained to investigators how the
three-year-old had managed to
travel the mile-or-so distance from
his home on Water Street to the resi-
dence across town where he was
found, or how he had managed to
cross busy US Highway 19, among
Subsequent questioning of Brun-
gardt by investigators produced in-
formation that the 23-year old
mother had left her sleeping child
unattended at home about 2 a.m.
while she responded to a friend's
call for a ride home from a well-
known bar in the southeast part of
Interviewed by investigators, the
cited friend -- who lives a block
from the bar -- denied that she had
ever called Brungardt or requested a
ride home, according to the police

somehow transported across town.
But thus far, they have been unable
to substantiate their suspicion.
The incident led the Department
of Child and Family Service to re-

will soon be able to do so in a more
amiable and spacious atmosphere.
That's because the Keystone Ge-
nealogy Society (KGS) will soon be
moving its operation to the public li-
brary on Water Street.
The County Commission ap-
proved the move last week, follow-
ing assurance from KGS representa-
tive Dee Counts that housing her or-
ganization's operation in the public
library will cost the county nothing.
Counts said volunteers will con-

have its own phone and copy ma-
chine, and prison labor will accom-
plish the move from one location to
In addition; her organization will
pay the insurance premiums for pro-
tection of the documents.
Counts explained that the reason
for the move was that the organiza-
tion's present facility -- the 150-
year-old gray building on East
Washington Street -- no longer pro-
vided adequate protection for the or-
ganization's priceless archives.
"These are very delicate docu-
ments," Counts said, adding that it
was "common practice in Florida
and the rest of the nation for geneal-
ogy to be in the library."

Residents living on dirt roads
damaged by Hurricane Dennis
should soon be seeing improve-
ments on their roads.
Road Department Superintendent
David Harvey reported to commis-
sioners last week. that FEMA (Fed-
eral Emergency Management
Administration) had awarded the
county $110,000 for the repair of
roads damaged by Hurricane
The $110,000, at least, was what
left of the FEMA money after the
consultant engineer had removed his
fees for doing the damage-and-
repair assessment of the various
roads, Harvey said.
The problem, he added, was that
the $110,000 was $58,000 short of
th epricequoted by the low bidder.
The only other bid, he said, was for
more than $400,000.
Commissioners briefly considered
cutting the scope of the work, to
bring it into conformance with the
available funding. But Harvey
pointed out that FEMA had awarded
the money based on the county re-
pairing all 14 roads listed on the

"FEMA doesn't care who does the
work," Harvey said, "so long as all
14 projects get done."

to do the balance of the work not
covered by Curt's Construction

Who Took Up Arms__ Oinion & Comment
Veterans Day, begun as a celebra-
tion of the end of World War I,
since has become a time set aside to
honor all American veterans.
It was originally called Armistice
Day, and was celebrated for the first
time on November 11, 1919, exactly
:one year to the day after the shoot-
ing stopped in Europe. To mark the
moment, churches held special serv-
ices and soldiers paraded.
People across the country ob-
served two minutes of silence in re-
membrance of soldiers who had lost
their lives. Similar ceremonies were
held in England, and France.
A vital element of the observance
was added in 1921, when the body
of an unknown American soldier
was moved from France to be buried
at Arlington National Cemetery in
Virginia. The observance of that
special -day included the President
laying a wreath at the Tomb of the
Unknown Soldier, an act repeated
each Veterans Day since.
The tomb, overlooking the Poto-
mac River, honored all Americans
who died fighting in World War I. It
is guarded 24 hours a day by men
and women of the 3rd. U.S. Infantry
"Old Guard," the Army's honor
Armistice Day was officially
named by Congress .in 1926. It be-
came a national holiday 12 years_
later. But the "armistice" didn't live
up to the hope that -there- would
never be another world war.
To honor veterans of every con-
flict, President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower signed a bill in 1954 to
change the name from Armistice
Day to Veterans Day.
In 1968, a law was enacted allow-
ing Veterans Day to be celebrated,
the fourth Monday in October. In re-
sponse to strong feelings about the
original date, Congress in 1978
changed Veterans Day back to the
original date of November 11.
Two unknown soldiers were bur-
ied at Arlington National Cemetery
in 1958. One was killed in World
War II and one died in the Korean
War. In 1984, remains from the
Vietnam War were brought to join
the other Unknowns. But in 1998
the remains were identified through
DNA tests and moved from the
Tomb of the Unknowns.
In adaion to 'ceremoies at the
Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington
Natifn'al Cemetery, it' has long been
a Veterans Day tradition for obser-
vances to be held in each state with
parades, patriotic ceremonies, and
the display of flags.
From that awesome day at the end
of World War I, on the 11th hour of
-the 11th day of the 11th month,
came a special day, of observance
for all men and women, living and
.dead, who took up arms in defense

My political liberty speaks to self-

BY SCOTT KIRKWOOD
Talk about goal-oriented. When
Alan Hogenauer of Cerritos, Calif.,
visited Virgin Islands Coral Reef
National Monument last fall, it was
the final step in a journey begun al-
most 50 years earlier at the Statue of
Liberty in New York. The mission?
To visit every National Park system
unit in the country.
Hop on the Internet and you'll find
dozens of park lovers working fe-
verishly to hunt down stamps from
every park, but Hogenauer had a
slight advantage over some:
He spent a few years working for
Trans World Airlines and he's now
an associate professor and director
of the center for travel and tourism
at Loyola Marymount University, in
Los Angeles this stuff is his job.
But he still had to pay his own way
more often than not and he logged a
lot more miles on the road than in
Even after all those trips, Ho-
genauer says he doesn't have a par-
ticular favorite park or even a favor-
ite theme. "That's what made this
such a fascinating project letting
'other people select what they find
interesting and then having a good
team interpret it," says Hogenauer.
"Would I have personally sought
out a place like Nicodemus, the
black village in central Kansas? No,
I wouldn't have ever known it was
there, but it's an absolutely fascinat-
ing place. I've learned a lot about
-black history and women's history
and I'm sure Latino history will be-
come more prevalent in the parks as
the population of our country
Hogenauer acknowledges that the
-interpretative aspect of the parks is
his favorite part of every visit: "If
there's a visitor's center I want to
;ook at it, if there's a film I want to
;watch it, if there's a placard I want
to read it."
Clearly this is a man who is a bit
oosessive. His personal web site
tracks each of his 366 travel-related
goals, from visiting all 131 North
American telephone area codes des-
ignated by AT&T, to visiting some
point worldwide whose name begins
with each of the 26 letters of the al-
phabet and consuming a McDon-
ald's menu item in every country in
which it operates.
Hogenauer even made a pilgrim-
age to the offices of R. R.
Donnelley, the Lancaster, Penn.,
company that prints maps and pam-
phlets for each park, just to let them
know he appreciated their efforts.
Because he's had the chance to see
the parks over the course of the last
few decades, Hogenauer has a
unique perspective on the evolution
of the parks in that time and his ob-
servations mirror the goals of
NPCA's advocacy work, including
the changes in the visitor
"There's more of a detachment
now," Hogenauer says. "You go in
to the visitor's center, you watch a
movie, you push a button, -you don't
ever talk to anybody you can liter-
ally go to Yosemite and not see a
ranger during your entire visit."
Even so, Hogenauer still believes
the incredible value of the parks isn't
being experienced and appreciated
by nearly enough people.
"Here's this incredible institution,
and the Park Service does so little to
publicize it directly, beyond the
Internet, which is such a passive ve-
hicle no one's going to search for
.Aniakchak Crater, per se. They're
going to have to find it on their
own," he says. Yet, at the same time,
commercial interests with much
smaller budgets are focusing on
branding and messaging; many tour-
ist traps in the shadow of the parks
do a better job of publicizing lesser
attractions with fliers in hotels and

Ultrathin Film Holds Promise
BY BARRY RAY
Imagine a special coating that can-
be applied to any of a number of
surfaces. With 'its application, car-
pets, furniture and clothing become
super-resistant to stains; automobile
bodies are impermeable to water and
rust; stents put in place during heart
surgery no longer are susceptible to
tissue growth that can restrict blood
flow; and cell cultures are more eas-
ily produced in the laboratory.
These are just a few of the possi-
abilities envisioned by a Florida State
University researcher who is devel-
oping processes for applying such
Joseph B. Schlenoff, a professor in
FSU's department of chemistry and
biochemistry and associate director
of its Center for Materials Research
,and Technology (MARTECH), has
worked for more than eight years to
develop ultrathin films that repel
water and other corrosive
"When you wax your car, water
-tends to bead up on the surface in
small droplets," Schlenoff said. "But
when one of these films is applied,
water virtually flies off. That's be-
cause the films are "superhydropho-
bic,' and water droplets ride over
The key to creating such films lies
in a layering process that Schlenoff
"Essentially, we place layers of
positively and negatively charged
electrolytes atop one another," he
said. "Their electrical charges cancel
each other out, creating a neutrally
charged, ultrathin film. The protec-
tive seal that is created by such films
is much more effective than paints
or resins alone at repelling corrosive
substances, such as salt or water."
Naresh Dalal, chairman of FSU's
department of chemistry and bio-
chemistry, said that other research-
ers have created methods for
producing multilayer films, but that
Schlenoff's process is particularly
simple and relatively inexpensive
to reproduce. "The potential appli-
cation for this teclmology are stag-
gering," he said.

Writer Chides Commissioners
AS Childish, Too Thin Skinned
' The issue to convert Ag-5 zoned
land to R-1 zoning so developers
can build one house an acre, instead
of one per five acres, is an important
'issue, and too important not to be
taken more seriously by the County
* On Oct. 20, 2005, our County
,Commission voted on the first appli-
cation to convert Ag-5 to R-1.
, It was approved 4-1, after further
discussions by the commissioners

Sand modifications were made and
The Commissioners don't believe
they have set a precedent for future
applications but it appears the stage
has been set.
The next application is scheduled
for vote in December.
Before they voted, most Commis-
sioners preached to, and scolded the
audience. The public had maligned,
threatened and libeled them over

where your public support comes
from, that's where your brand iden-
tity comes from if you've gone to

Healthy Weight Loss available only at
Jackson's Drug, Hoodiacol is'
designed to curb the appetite, burn
fat and increase energy levels
resulting in considerable weight loss
over time. Hoodiacol consist of 3 key
ingredients incorporated into rice
bran oil with natural flavorings to
give it a palpable taste. In addition to
weight loss, you may see benefits for
the hair, skin and nails from the
Omega 3 and Omega 6 found in rice
bran oil. Hoodia gordonii is a cactus
found in the Kalahari Desert of South
Africa. Unsurpassed as an appetite
suppressant, it not only limits appetite
but increases the sense of satiety. This'
tends to limit total caloric intake by
30-40% without experiencing hunger.
Significant weight loss should result
from such a drop in caloric intake.
