Work should soon begin on some
of the housing units scheduled for
rehabilitation or demolition under a
$700,000 Community Development
Block Grant (CDBG) awarded the
county late last year.
Harold Eastman, of Meridian
Community Service Group, reported
the project's progress to commis-

Group is a Tallahassee company
hired by the commission to handle
the county's housing issues after the
Grants Office was restructured.
Eastman told commissioners that
four of the 18 housing units desig-
nated for rehabilitation or demoli-
tion were scheduled to be worked
on in the coming weeks. He said the.
county was fortunate to have five
approved contractors who were will-
ing to bid on the contracts.
"This is unheard of in the
industry," Eastman said. "Usually,
it's one contractor."
He said that now that the con-
tracts were being bid out, the work
should proceed quickly. The reason
the work had taken this long to get
started, he said, was that his com-
pany had had to do much prepara-
tory paperwork upfront.
The county initially received
$548,000 for the work. That amount
was subsequently raised to

An electrical contractor's ex-

prompted commissioners to take
stock of the county-owned land
Commission Chairman Skeet Joy-
ner informed the board recently that
a potential buyer's inquiry had
prompted him to ask Property Ap-
praiser David Ward to do an assess-

Per Ward, Joyner said, the fair
market value of the county-owned
land at the industrial park was
$15,000 an acre, not counting par-
cels fronting the jail or US 19,
which would command a higher
Of course, the county wasn't
bound to sell any of its parcels at
$15,000 per acre, Joyner said. The
county could always choose to sell_
at higher or lower price, he said. But
the $15,000 set the baseline.
Joyner described the potential
buyer as an electrical contractor
whose business is presently located
in Tallahassee. He said the contrac-

One day before Tuesday's dead-

yet to respond formally to the city's
That ultimatum, issued by the City
Council on Nov. 1, called for Gray-
bar to correct the reception prob-
lems associated with the Internet
_ system it provided the city, or re-
move the equipment from the city
City Attorney Bruce Leinback has
been negotiating the issue with
"I got a phone call from Graybar's
attorney last Thursday," Leinback
said Monday. "She asked how firm
the city's deadline was. I informed
her it was firm."
Leinback said Graybar's attorney
indicated that her company did not
think it could achieve a solution by
"She said she would speak with
the technical people at Graybar and
she would write a letter stating
Graybar's position," Leinback said.
Discussed too, he said, was the
.-option of Graybar removing its
equipment from the city premises,
which the company seemed amena-
ble to doing.
Until receipt of the Graybar attor-
ney's letter, however, the city really
had no answer, Leinback said.
The city and Graybar have been
sparring over the issue of the Inter-
net system for several months now.
The problem arose because the
system's signal reaches only a small
percentage of potential customers.
This notwithstanding Graybar's rep-
resentation that the system would
provide 80 percent coverage within
a mile radius of the system's anten-
The culprit, according to the ex-
perts, are the trees, which suppos-
edly interfere with the signal. The
one solution proposed thus far has
been to erect higher-than-treetop an-
tennas at each of the residences ex-
periencing poor or no reception.
City officials wonder about the
cost and viability of such a solution.
Who will pay for the antennas and
how effective will they be, officials
want to know.
But more pertinent, they wonder
how a company of Graybar's lon-
gevity and expertise could not know
that trees would impact the system's

Medicare Part D
There has been a lot of talk lately
about Medicare Part D, the new pre-
scription drug benefit that begins
Jan. 1, 2006.
With so much information, it can
be overwhelming and difficult for
seniors and their families to under-
stand the significance of this new
coverage now available to them.
"For the first time, America's sen-
iors will have access to affordable
prescription drug coverage," said
Jackie Kosecoff, Ph.D., executive
vice president of PacifiCare's Pre-
scription, Solutions, which is offer-
ing three Medicare Part D plans.
"There are lots of new choices out
there for them to review, and it may
seem complicated at first. But
knowing a few basic facts can help
people understand the benefit more
In order to assist seniors in mak-
ing the right choice for themselves
on prescription drug coverage, she
offers the following facts and tips on
Medicare Part D .. **.
* 1. All 42 million Medicare benefi-
6iaries are eligible for the new pre-
icription drug coverage, and enroll-
iient in Part D is voluntary.
2. Part D plans are being provided
solely through private health care
plans. This is different from current
Aiedical coverage options, in which
seniors can choose between tradi-
tional Medicare and private health
insurers (HMOs) that offer Medi-
dare Advantage plans.
3. Seniors can sign up for Part D
plans as of Nov. 15. The opening
enrollment period for the program
Will last until May 15, 2006, but in
drder for coverage to start on Jan. 1,
2006, seniors must sign up by Dec.
4. Part D coverage will be offered
through two types of plans. A stand-
alone Prescription Drug Plan, called
a PDP, will offer drug coverage
only. Hospital and outpatient costs
would be covered by separate plans.
An MA-PD plan is a Medicare Ad-
vantage Prescription Drug plan that
offers medical, hospital and drug
5. All plans that offer Part D cov-
erage have to meet basic require-
ments. For example, each plan has
to offer at least two drugs in every
drug class except those that are ex-
cluded from coverage, such as those
used for weight loss, weight gain or
cosmetic purposes or those sold
over the counter.
6. If you already have prescription
drug coverage, it may still be avail-
able after this year. Seniors should
compare their current plan's 2006
coverage with the Part D plans that
will be available in their area next
7. The standard annual deductible
will be $250. .Medicare estimates

Opinion & Comment
Booze Derailed Military Career
Anybody who has had military
service knows a man like Paul.
Paul was a guy who had been
busted more times than he could
count. Fact is, he was a Master Ser-
geant at one point but when I met
him he was slick-sleeved.
His problem was he couldn't stay
away from the bottle. Oh, he'd:
straighten up enough to avoid being
kicked out of service, but he had dif-
ficulty staying on track.
I saw Paul at his best when he was
clear-headed and sober and I sawv
him when he was a raging drunk.
He had a deep voice and a bearing
which commanded authority. Trou-
ble is in the military' authority rests"

At breakfast the next morning he
was sober and thanked me for help-

That began a friendship that lasted
a couple of years.

Aside from booze, Paul was an in-

In typical fashion, the federal gov-, ing to the Bush Administration. We
ernment is .using a real disaster to
scare us into giving it more power in
case an unrelated, perhaps man-
made (terrorist-related), disaster
might possibly occur.
President Bush has announced that
he wants to federalize emergency
responses. When does it stop?
Katrina was the worst natural dis-
aster to ever hit the United States.
As a result, all levels of government
were caught off guard.
Some elected officials were most
certainly inept at dealing with the
situation. People suffered as a result.
So, accept it for what it was. Katrina
was a once in a life time experience.
Now, clean up. the mess and move
But no, according to President
Bush, Katrina showed us what

must prepare by putting the military
in charge. There's that excuse again.
Terrorism. Oh, please!
'What President Bush is really tell-
ing us is that, in our next disaster, he
wants to immediately declare Mar-
tial Law. How far is he willing to go
to enforce it?
First, he wants the Pentagon to
serve as the nerve center where the
response is organized.
What are locally elected officials
to do while the military prepares for
war on their city? Are they to be in-
volved? After all, local officials
know the territory best. They know
ithe people and their needs.
Moreover, the military is trained
to blow things up not gently deal
The first thing the military was as-
signed to do in New Orleans was to
get rid of all the people.
They pulled people from their
homes, even though they didn't
want to leave. Some of those people
wanted to stay to protect their pos-
sessions from looters. Some of those
possessions, in the historic city, date
back to before the Civil War.
Anyone can understand that citi-
zens who have had such property in
their family for generations would
want to stay and protect it.
Others, the very poorest, wanted.
to stay because that land was all
they had in the world. Regardless of
the dangers, they wanted to stay. It
was their choice. It was their land. It
was their life.
Local leaders would understand
this. Soldiers following orders
would not. Today, in our cocoon-of-
safety mentality, such considera-
tions aren't acceptable.
So, udder the proposed Martial
Law, will the President be able to
suspend Habeas Corpus?
That means that the rule of the law
is thrown out the window. It means
there is no due process. No fair
ternoon while he nursed drinks at a
watering hole, I left. Three days
later he got back to the base. How in
the world he wasn't discharged as
AWOL is a mystery to me!
I really think his commander liked
him and overlooked many things.
My enlistment was nearly up and I
told Paul I'd be leaving the base for
a job at a newspaper.
I'll never forget the advice he
gave me. He said, "When you're my
age I don't want you to be doing
what I'm doing."
What he was doing was working
at base headquarters as an orderly or
in civilian parlance, a janitor.
The day I got my separation or- '
ders I went over to the headquarters
building to say good-bye to Paul.
I spotted him down the hall as he
was leaving an office with a waste
basket in each hand.
I caught up with him and said I
was leaving and wished him well..
He put the waste basket down and
shook hands with me. "Good luck to
you, too," he said.
I turned to leave and Paul said,
Keep making friends with books."
trials. No bail.
That would be a valuable tool to
the military in dealing with those
bothersome holdouts who were just
trying to protect their property.
They would just be swooped off
the streets and out of their houses
and locked away until someone in
power decided to let them out.
But, some would argue, the news
media wouldn't allow such abuses.
With all of our twenty four hour ca-
ble news breathing down the necks
of politicians, rights and security
would certainly be safeguarded.
The military would just be an effi-
cient tool to help. It's an
Really? Under Martial Law, the
president has the power to suppress
the media. Let an article or editorial
say a discouraging word about the
government's actions, and they can
be shut down and jailed for interfer-

Get in Shape With 10,000 Steps
When did life become a numbers
The day kicks off with a radio re-
cap of travel times that sounds like a
fourth-grade math problem.

through calories, points or fat
Rarely a day passes that does not
require at least one access code, pin
And while numbers have always
played a large role in fitness 30
minutes of activity per day, three
sets of 15 reps, etc. a new number
has emerged that can simplify ef-
forts to stay in shape.
When in doubt, aim for 10,000.
Ten thousand steps, that is.
Experts in fitness and weight man-
agement say that walking 10,000
steps per day can provide enough
physical activity to achieve average
weight-loss goals and increase fit-
With a basic pedometer that tracks
the number of steps taken, a normal
day one that involves a few er-
rands, a walk with the dog and per-
haps a sprint for the bus takes on
the importance of a regular workout.
While 10,000 steps sounds like a
huge number, consider that the aver-
age city block is approximately 200
steps long. Ten thousand steps
equals approximately five miles.
The best way to get started is to
figure out how many steps you nor-
mally take per day. This number can
be anywhere from 700 to 3,000 on
average and it's surprising how
much un-tallied walking a day con-
A few laps around the office can
be all in a day's work, but if the of-
fice covers the entire floor of a
building, the steps add up.
Any mom who pushes a stroller
around knows that qualifies as exer-
cise, but she may forget that chasing
the toddler around the playground -
or the grocery store counts, too.
Dixie Thompson Ph.D., director
of the Center for Physical Activity
and Health at the University of Ten-
nessee, Knoxville, recommends in
"Shape" magazine that you wear a
pedometer for a week (it can cost
less than $30) while going about '
your normal routine to determine
the number of steps you take on av-
erage every day.
With an idea of your normal day's
activity, it will be easier for you to
add more steps gradually.
Park further away from a destina-
tion or store and walk the rest of the
way; get off the bus or out of the
taxi a few blocks early; make it a
rule to walk to any place that's less
than a mile away (if it's safe, of

He introduced guest speaker
Rev. Thermon Moore, pastor at
First Baptist Church.
"The concept of our freedom and
the reality of liberty began in the
mind of God. The seed of liberty
lies in truth. It was God who
planted freedom's dream in the
hearts of our forefathers leading
them to abandon the servitude of
their homelands, and sail to this
new world in quest of God-given
liberty...," Moore said.
"On July 4, 229 years ago, the
Liberty Bell in Philadelphia rang
out the news of the signing of the
Declaration of Independence, de-
claring the greatest time and place
of freedom ever experienced by the
"Along the journey of freedom,
'Americans have adopted many
symbols of patriotism, such as the
Liberty Bell, our Flag, the Image of
Paul Revere on his midnight ride,
the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier,
the planting of Old Glory on Iwo
Jima, and the Statue of Liberty.
"Today, however, Lady Liberty is
weeping. See her as she stands in
New York Harbor, her torch of
freedom held high.

our shores, the downcast, the out-
cast, those driven from their home-

"Lady Liberty has harbored men,
women and children from every
continent, every culture, every race
and every religion. But now,
worldwide enemies are out casting
her from both far and near. Many
of those whom she has welcomed
and sheltered beneath her wings her
wings of love, now hate her and are
determined to destroy her and all
for which she stands.
"From every direction enemies
rise up to cut her throat, drain out
her life's blood and bury her at the
bottom of the salt sea from which
she has beckoned scores of ship-
wrecked seamen and received in
love so many wayfaring pilgrims.
"Yes, my fellow Americans our
Lady Liberty is weeping because
saboteurs of all that is sacred h4ve
declared Jihad against her. Her
enemies have declared her an infi-
del and have sworn to annihil
her from the face of the Earth."
Moore spoke of the first enemy
the offspring of Ishmael, who w
then and is now, a constant soui
of conflict and the instigator of v

"The entire Bible and newspapi
of today and tomorrow record t
