12 local Offices

Up For Election

Monticello News
Senior Staff Writer
With 12 local elective offices com-
ing up for election in November, as well
as the presidential and other elections,
it promises to be an interesting and ac-
tive political season.
Already, 18 candidates have pre-
qualified for several of the local of-
fices, and the official qualification date
isn't until the middle of June.
Pre-qualification allows a candi-
date to appoint a campaign manager
and start a campaign fund. It also puts
the public on notice that the individual
plans to seek the elective office,
thereby possibly dissuading would-be
Pre-qualification does not guaran-
tee that an individual will run for the
office; that guarantee comes with qual-
ification. Pre-qualification, however, is
a pretty good indicator that an individ-
ual plans to run.
The Jefferson County constitu-
tional offices that are up for reelection
in November are Clerk of Court, Prop-
erty Appraiser, Sheriff, Superintend-
ent of School, Supervisor of Elections
and Tax Collector, as well as Districts
1, 3 and 5 of the County Commission
and Districts 1, 2 and 4 of the School
So far, 18 candidates have pre-qual-
ified for nine of the 12 offices, accord-
ing to the elections office.

ment and efficiency
The only issues that com-
missioners will have to de-
cide Thursday are relative to
the law enforcement and
transportation impact fees.


Those issues are whether ex-
emptions or reductions will
be granted for reasons of
ment or
ing, and
the rates for the transporta-
tion impact fee will be re-
duced across the board, as
Commissioner Jerry Sut-
phin has recommended.
The attorney working

with Government Services
Group, Inc. (GSG), the con-
sultant firm that conducted
the required studies for de-
termination of the impact
fees, has provided the neces-
sary language for the exemp-
tions, It remains for
commissioners, however, to
decide if that language will
be included in the ordinance.
The granting of the ex-
emptions is not without op-
position. Planning Official
Bill Tellefsen, whose office
administers the collection of
the fees, argued Feb. 7 that

These building near the courthouse square typify the build-to line standard, one
of the requirements of the proposed ordinance. Build-to line means new building
must abut the sidewalk in the courthouse area, with parking in the rear. The idea is
to give the square a definite look and character.

City Readies To Impose Design

Standards On Courthouse Square

Senior Staff Writer
Notwithstanding the
stall in the economy, city
officials are convinced
that once the current
downturn reverses,

growth will again come
to Monticello. They
want, when that growth
returns, that the city be
ready to accommodate it.
Specifically, they want to
have in place a set of
rules that direct the.

shape and tenor of the
growth architecturally,
so that it fits into the
community's greater vi-
sion. Hence the proposed

Enforcement reports that sexual of-
fender/predator Mark Alan Clyde, 25,
was released from prison Feb. 7.
Clyde, also known as Marcus
Clyde, is a white male with blonde hair
and blue eyes. He is six feet, two inches
tall and weighs 165 pounds.

Pettway Sentenced

On Drug Charges
Monticello News
Staff Writer
Paul Pettway, 29, of 820 Cherry
St., was sentenced Feb. 15 to 180 days
in the County Jail and three years of
drug offender probation after being
found guilty of drug charges.
Those charges stem from Friday
morning, Sept. 14, 2007, when Deputy
Investigator Chris Smith served a
search warrant at the residence of
Pettway, 38, which resulted in a drug-
related arrest.
The search resulted in the discov-
ery of 3-4 grams of marijuana and
trace amounts of cocaine. Addi,
tional evidence, which indicated the
sale and use of illegal drugs, was
also discovered inside the residence.
That evidence included baggies
and containers, which appeared to be
common household items, but had
concealed compartments for the hid-
ing and transporting of illegal drugs.
Pettway was not home at the time
the search was conducted but was
later located and arrested on charges
of possession and sale of those
The search was conducted after
an extensive investigation that in-
volved surveillance and also the un-
dercover purchase of drugs from
Sheriff's deputies assisted Smith
in the search.
Pettway was transported to the
Jefferson County Jail where he was

Both were transport-

ing overlay that city offi-
cials are considering.
Largely the brainchild
of landscape architect
Winston Lee, the proposed
ordinance establishes a
citizens committee to
develop design recommen-
dations for the central
business district, at the
same time that it tem-
porarily suspends zoning
and site plan applications
for properties on the
courthouse square.
The task of the mayor-
appointed eight-member
committee, as defined by
the ordinance, is to return
to the City Council within
a six-month period with a
set of design recommenda-
tions for the Courthouse
Square and the central
business district.
Those recommenda-
tions will include: an iden-
tification of the properties
appropriate for inclusion
in the overlay zone; the
location of buildings with-

the exemptions would cre-
ate an administrative
nightmare. Unless the ordi-
nance clearly defined what
constituted economic
development and afford-
able housing, Tellefsen
warned, every applicant
would claim the exemp-
tions and commissioners
would spend a great deal of
their time deciding which
projects actually qualified.
What exactly, Tellefsen
asked, was the definition of
affordable housing? And at
what point would the typi-
cal mom-and-pop operation
qualify as an economic
development enterprise?
"It will make for an
administration night-
mare," Tellefsen said.
Dick Bailar, a resident
who regularly attends com-
mission meetings and who
participates in a variety of
quasi-judicial groups and
programs including one
for affordable housing -
was quite in agreement. He
pointed out that the county
had other options for pro-
moting economic develop-
ment and affordable hous-
ing. If commissioners start-

in the zoning overlay,
including the establish-
ment of a build-to line;
and parking and landscap-
ing requirements.
The city, meanwhile,
will suspend reviews of
rezoning and site plan
application within the
Courthouse Square for a
six-month period. The
square is defined as the
area immediately sur-
rounding the courthouse.
The central business dis-
trict, meanwhile, takes in
all buildings within a two-
to-three block radius of
the courthouse.
As Lee described it
when he first proposed the
idea in mid 2007 and again
on Tuesday, Feb. 5, the
idea is to set standards
and requirements for,
architectural designs in
the square, such as build-
ing dimensions, heights.
and setbacks. Buildings
built to such standards, he
said, would give the

N. "Junior" Tuten does

tion); and C.P. Miller,

ed "fooling around with
exemptions", Bailar said, it
would defeat the purpose of
the impact fees, which was
to pay for growth.
"We 're already'behind
the curves on impact fees,"
Bailar said. "Impact fees
should be one shoe fits all."
Sutphin, meanwhile,
argued that the proposed
rates for the transportation
impact fee were too high.
He took issue in particular
with. the transportation
impact fee for residential
units. Sutphin's argument,
however, garnered little, if
any, support.
Tellefsen, for one, cited
the example of Volusia
County, which reportedly
charges a $15,000 impact fee
for residential units. And
Commissioners Felix
"Skeet" Joyner and J. N.
"Junior" Tuten were equal-
ly unresponsive to the pro-
"I don't think we need
to cherry pick reductions,"
Joyner said. "We've paid
dearly to have these con-
sultants give us these num-
bers. I'm putting my trust

square a uniform and
definitive look.
One critical element
in that look is establishing
a build-to line, meaning
that buildings must come
right up to the sidewalk
(the Opera House is a per-
fect example of a build-to
building), thereby estab-
lishing a definite context
for the square. Another
important consideration
is offering incentives for
property owners to con-
struct two-story buildings
that can provide upstairs
space for shops, galleries,
restaurants and even
dwellings activities
that add vibrancy and
vitality to an area.
In the absence of such
standards, growth would
occur haphazardly, Lee
said. He offered the exam-
ple of a. building on the
courthouse square being
demolished by the owner
or destroyed by a natural
disaster. Absent the pro-

Tuten concurred.
"If you go to the jewelry
store to buy a ring, you can
buy a diamond or a fake
ring," Tuten said. "We
have a diamond in
Jefferson County. If folks
want to live here, they need
to pay their fair share from
day one."'
Even so, commission-
ers agree to consider the
proposed exemptions and a
reduction of the transporta-
tion impact fee rates in the
interim and reach a deci-
sion on the two issues at
the Feb. 21 meeting, which
starts at 6 p.m. in the court-
The proposed impact
fee for law enforcement is
$481.25 for residential units
and $0.55 per sq. foot for
non-residential or com-
mercial units. The pro-
posed impact fee for trans-
portation is a bit more
complicated, varying from
property to property in
accordance with the type of
use. For example, the pro-
posed transportation
impact fee is $1,278 per
1,000 sq. feet of warehous-
es; $2,310 per room for
motels; and $2,465 for sin-

Impact fees are one-
time charges levied by gov-
ernment against new con-
struction to help pay for
the increased levels of pub-
lic services that growth
demands. Impact fees are
specifically designed to
shift the cost of growth
from current taxpayers to
newcomers. Monies col-
lected from impact fees
must be kept in separate
accounts and can only be
used for capital improve-
ment projects associated
with the growth, such as
construction of new fire or
police stations.
The law enforcement
impact fee will be collected
countywide and applied
countywide for capital
improvement projects. The
transportation impact fee
will be collected by zones,
of which the county has
been divided into three.
Zone one consists of the
area west of US 19 and
north of US 27; zone two of
the area east of US 19 and
north of US 27; and zone
three of the area south of
US 27.
Monies collected from
the transportation impact
fee must be spent for road
projects in the zone where
the money is collected,
unless the project benefits
the entire county.

Making Memories
My mother has always told me, during my adult life as a
mother, to makee memories." As we grow older, what we
hold dear to us are the memories we have with our loved
To make this point valid, one day she asked me what my
favorite memories of my childhood were. As I started nam-
ing things (summer camps, family trips to the beach, family
trips to the mountains,---
multi-family trips to foot-
ball games, multi-family .
trips to the Daytona 500,
family swimming time at ,#"
the KOA), her point was
taken. Sure, we all have
some funny, good memo- -- d'
ries of things that hap-
pened at school, or at work, .
but the REAL memories
come from "family time."
As I got older and my
children got older, some-
times I would hit decisions .
on what to do, or what not A
to do. Softball games that t
were Tcheduled on "press
days" or away basketball
games that would totally
kill a day's worth of work.
When I would have to face
these decisions, my .
Mother would always ask
me, "In 20 years, which
will you remember? The
basketball game or what
you did at the office that
day? Always choose the Brooke and I are pictured

Such was the case last parties of the House of
week. The Aucilla Representatives.
Christian Academy sev-
enth and eighth grade classes (my daughter Brooke being in
the seventh grade) took their annual Washington, D.C. trip,
and I had signed up to be a chaperone. And what a memory
we (Brooke and I) have.
We all loaded the bus at Aucilla at 3:30, Wednesday after-
noon (didn't actually leave until 3:50 because I was late) and
offwe headed to Washington D.C. For the next 15-16 hours we
stayed on that bus until we got to our destination. Bathroom
breaks, snack breaks, and breakfast breaks were very well
welcomed, more so for the fact of being able to walk around
and stretch our legs. It is at times like these, however, that
no matter how old someone might be- the realization that
you ARE NOT 13 and 14 years old anymore, really hits home.
I can assure everyone, that the adults felt the pain of sleeping
on a bus, much more than any of the teenagers felt it.
All day Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, the group of 36
children and adults visited sites such as the White House, the
Lincoln Memorial, the Capitol, the Arlington Cemetery (my
favorite), the Vietnam Memorial, the National Cathedral, the
SpaceMuseum, the Natural History Museum, and too many
other places to name them all. It was so much fun. I have
always felt like such a "kid at heart" anyway, and I've got to
tell you that I probably had more fun, on that trip, than a lot
of the teenagers themselves. On our way home we stopped
by Williamsburg, Va., and did a day's worth of sightseeing
there, too.
Our group made it home on Sunday morning at 10:00
(after spending the night on the bus Saturday night.) We
were all tired, in our pajamas, but so glad to have Florida
weather again. Let me tell you, I would never live anywhere
but Florida. I like my 70 degree "winter weather." I spent
three full days in 30-45 degree cold, cold, breezy weather and
I sure missed home.
But a memory was made and fmun was had by all. And
that is what is important!
From my Mother to me, and from me to you....
"Go make a memory with your child and/or loved one.
That is what's important in life!"
Until then....see you around the town.

The JV Lady Warriors defeated Perry
Middle School. 15-3. Tuesday Feb 12. in
their first game this season.
Coach Frank Brown said the game was
good for a season opener. but Aucilla was
definitely the stronger team on the field
"The teams Awere evenly matched in age
and the Perfry pitcher was a lot slower than
what we're used to, so it took itus the first
inning to get adjusted to the pitching."
said Brown.
He said the Lady Warriors did not do a
lot of stealing bases, the team's signature
moves every season, otherwise it would
have been a run-away score for Aucilla.
At the plate, Michaela Metcalf had three
at-bat, one strikeout, one walk. one single
and two runs.
Pamela Watt had four at-bat, one fly-
out, three doubles, two RBI and three runs.
Lisa Kisamore had four times at the
plate, one strikeout, two walks, one single,
and two runs scored.
Skyler Hanna had four at-bat, one dou-
ble, two singles, one base on error, one RBI,
two runs and one stolen base.

Brooke Kinsey had four trips to the
plate, one triple. one single. one walk. one
base by error, two RBI. two runs, and one
Sunnie Sorensen had four at-bat, three
singles, one fly-out, three RBI. and two
Ashley Schofill made four rounds to
the rubber, two singles, one fly-out, a trip
to first base by fielder's choice when the
shortstop fielded the ball and chose to out
the runner approaching second base
rather than Schofill, one RBI. and one
Keli Dollar made two trips to the plate
and had one fly-out and one putotut.
Hadley Revell had two at-bat, one walk
and one fly-out: Kelli Evans had one at-
bat, one double, one RBI. and one run.
Vicki Perry made two trips to the
plate, had one walk and one putout: and

the rubber and hit a single.
On the mound. Schofill pitched the
first three innings, striking out five bat-
ters, and giving up four walks and no hits.

In preparation for the
upcoming softball season,
Aucilla Christian Academy

gently throughout the sum-
mer and during Tuesday
and Thursday physical ed-
ucation classes in the
weight room, as they have
done for several years
under the guidance of
Coach Frank Brown.
For approximately two
weeks, the girls have also
been working with calis-
thenics, softball skills, run-
ning and new this year, the
course, which consists of
the run, dodge and jump
obstacle race, the horizon-
tal ladder monkey bars,
balance beams, bench dips,
pull-ups, high jump from
flat-footed stance, and push
up station.
"It'll help to better pre-
pare them for the season
and strengthen them for
play, as well and work on
their endurance," said
Brown. "They seem to
enjoy the competition a lot
more than working out in
the weight room."

riors preparing to hit the
diamond for action, they
include; ninth grader Lisa
Kisamore, eighth graders
Stacie Brock, Keli Dollar,

Farm Pond Recovery

Will Take Time

Monticello News
Staff Writer
The continuing drought has taken a
severe toll on many farm ponds in the
county. Despite some rain, many are still
dry, or at least below normal levels.
The return of "normal" water levels
depends on rainfall, but the pond may
need more than water to return to its full
Vegetation has changed
in and around ponds, and
some fish populations have

been lost.
On the up side, a dry
pond may provide a chance
to make some changes that
were less important when
the ponds were full and the
fish were biting.
The Jefferson County
Extension office will be of-
fering a "Fish Pond Man-
agement Short Course" 7 -
9 p.m. Monday, March 3
and Monday, April 7. The
new Polycom video confer-
encing system will be used
to see and hear speakers
from Florida and Alabama
discuss Fish Management

and Weed Management. On Monday,
April 14, participants will travel to Boni-
fay, FL, to tour the Paul Fish Farms, a
commercial hatchery, to see ideas in ac-
tion and to enjoy a fish fry

Jefferson County Citizens Attend Farm

Bureau Multi-County Legislative Meeting

Monticello News
Senior Staff Writer
Stephen Monroe, presi-
dent of the Jefferson County
Farm Bureau, was one of nu-
merous representatives from
the region's agriculture com-
munity who attended the
Farm Bureau's Annual Multi-
County Legislative meeting
in Mayo on Monday night.
All told, representatives
from seven north Florida
counties attended the meet-
ing, which focused on legisla-
tive issues and priorities. The
counties represented at the
event were Lafayette, Colum-
bia, Hamilton, Suwannee,
Taylor, Madison and Jeffer-
Guest speakers at the af-
fair included Congressman
Allen Boyd; State Representa-
tives Will Kendrick, of Dis-
trict 10 and Debbie Boyd, of
District 11; and House of Rep-
resentative hopeful Julie Con-
ley, formerly mayor of
Monticello. '
Monroe said one of the
central issues discussed at the
meeting was the budget cuts
that are in store for Florida
state agencies and institu-
tions. He said the agricultural
community was concerned in
particular about proposed
cuts to the budget of the Uni-
versity of Florida's Institute

of Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences (IFAS).
"There is a grave con-
cern that IFAS will take a dis-
proportionate cut in its
budget," Monroe said.
He said the concern
stemmed from public state-
ments by Dr. James Bernard
Machen, UF president, that
agriculture is on the decline
in Florida, and that conse-
quently, the IFAS program
could stand deep cuts.
Monroe said the remarks
triggered outrage in the agri-
cultural community and a
groundswell of opposition
that is hopefully being con-
veyed to Machen.
"There's an effort to edu-
cate him and let him,know
that he misspoke," Monroe
said, adding that agricultural
research and development is.
especially vital now, given
that two percent of the popu-
lation produce the nation's
"The chief educator of
UF is about to get an educa-
tion," Monroe said.
In addition to the feared
IFAS cutbacks, Monroe said
the agricultural community
is also concerned about pos-
sible cuts to the budget of the
Florida Department of Agri-
culture (FDOA).
"The FDOA is known as
a lean department," Monroe

said. "Its budget would fund
the Department of Education
for only four days. When we
start cutting the FDOA
budget, we're cutting pro-
grams that
affect agri-
other big ,
issue of dis-
cussion at
the meeting
was immi-
Monroe Stephen Monroe
said, noting Jefferson
that Florida County Farm Bu-
lawmakers reau President
are talking of establishing a
state immigration policy
"The Farm Bureau
doesn't want state legisla-
tors doing what the federal
government should do,"
Monroe said. "We need a
federal policy on immigra-
tion, not each state coming
up with a separate policy"
The ongoing issue of
water was also a big con-
cern, he said.
"We want south Florida
to stay out of our water sup-
ply," Monroe said, referring
to failed efforts in the past to
divert north Florida water to
certain central Florida coun-

Five Questions to Ask Yourself
When You Near Retirement
Provided by Robert J. Davison
Whenever you see people enjoying a comfortable retirement -
traveling, volunteering, pursuing hobbies, taking up anew ca-
reer you can be pretty sure it all didn't happen by accident.
In fact, success at retirement is similar to success in just about
any endeavor you have to plan for it.
Of course, your planning could take many different forms. But,
as you get close to retirement, you might find it easier to or-
ganize your efforts if you ask yourself these five key questions:
Where am I today? Shortly before you retire, make a
detailed list of your financial assets, such as your
bank accounts, investments, IRA, 401(k), etc. You
may want to consider consolidating as many of these
accounts as you can with just one company. This
consolidation will help you get a clearer picture of
your overall situation, and it may even help you
reduce maintenance fees and make it easier to
calculate required minimum distributions (RMDs)
you might have to take once you reach 70-1/2. On
the '"flip side," you'll want to list out all your obliga-
tions mortgages, home equity credit lines, car loans
and other debts.
How much will I need to enjoy the retirement life-
style I've envisioned? You'll probably need between
80 percent and 100 percent of your preretirement in
come to maintain your standard of living in retire
ment. But this is a general rule; your actual needs will
depend on what you want to do during retirement.
So, if you want to travel extensively, you might need
more income than if you chose to stay close to home,
volunteering and pursuing hobbies. In any case, try to
estimate your annual expenses during retirement,
knowing that your plans may change later.
How much can I withdraw each year? Your invest-
ment portfolio is likely to account for a good percent-
age of your retirement income. Consequently, you'll
want to work with your financial advisor to deter-
mine how much you can take out each year without
running out of money. The percentage you withdraw
each year will depend on several factors, including
your portfolio's rate of return, the age at which you
start taking Social Security and the size of the distri-
butions from your 401(k) or other employer-spon-
sored retirement plan.
What portfolio and lifestyle adjustments do I need
to make? Once you've determined how much you can
realistically withdraw each year, you may need to re-
balance your investments to get the right proportion
of equities and fixed income. You also might need to
look beyond your portfolio to see what lifestyle
changes you may need to make. For example, you
may decide that you wouldn't mind working for an
additional year or so to take some of the pressure off
your investments as an income source.
How can I stay on course? Over time, your goals,
health or income needs may change, so you might
have to update your withdrawal and investment
strategies. At this stage of your life, you'll want to re-
view your situation with your financial advisor at
least once a year.
By asking yourself these questions and then answering them
you can go a long way toward enjoying the retirement you

The Scripture tells us in
Psalm 127, "Unless the Lord
builds the house, its builders
labor in vain."
We experienced a great day
on a recent Sunday, and as
always, I hope you were present.
Thanks be to God for sending
His messenger, Brother Greg
Bruckert, and his wife Shelly, to
lead in the services on Sunday.
It is always a good thing to
connect with one of our "own"
missionary families, and as
Brother Greg was sharing, he
reminded us that it is the Spirit
of the Lord that inspires arid
leads us to do God's work.
And, unless God is leading,
not too much will happen.
Thing is, we have to be
"zeroed in" on doing God's work,
and then, we have to obediently
do what the Spirit says.
Indonesia, Greg and Shelly's
mission area, is experiencing
growth in Christendom because
of people like the Bruckerts who
are willing to obediently follow
God's leading.
In our own little corner of
the world, our mission area,

what are we doing in response to
the call of the Spirit of God?
There is much that we can do
to advance the kingdom of God
upon the earth.
We can certainly begin at
"home" in our congregation
with a willing spirit of service
to God.
We can demonstrate this col-
lectively as we come together for
times of worship, where our
Creator, our Sustainer, our
Savior, and Lord is exhaled and
God wants us to praise Him
above everything else, and in the
process of obediently and will-
ingly extolling our great and sov-
ereign God, we can also share
His wonderful love with the
whole world around us.
Again, I say it: "Unless the
Lord builds the house, its
builders labor in vain."
If He is the One who is lead-
ing, and we are the ones who are
following [the One who is lead-
ing,] we will see great things
accomplished in His name!
Do I hear an Amen! Praise
the Lord! Hallelujah!

Rotary Welcomes Tom Price,

First UMC Interim Pastor

Tom Price, Interim Pastor for the
First United Methodist Church in
Monticello, was welcome back to the
Monticello area after a 40-year absence.
He spoke to the Monticello Rotary on
Friday, Feb. 1 about Monticello "then
and now."
Spiritual Pathways
Staff Writer
The Monticello Rotary wel-
comed Tom Price back to the
area after a 40-year absence.
Price is the Interim Pastor at
the First United Methodist
Church in Monticello.
After being introduced by
Rotarian Hines Boyd, Price
seemed to fit right into the ambi-

ence of the Rotary meeting.
He reminisced about the way
things "used to be" here in
Monticello, and Jefferson County
Some things he misses, some
have changed for the better, he
He misses the Welcome
Station north of town where he
used to slip in for a cold orange
juice; he misses Bassett's Dairy
and the door-to-door milk service;
he misses the Mullet Roasts at
the area churches; and most of
all, he misses many of the people
that have passed on, to be remem-
bered fondly by their loved ones.
He likes the climate and the
changed moods of the locals, the
attitudes and new ideas, and he
likes that the fresh ideas are
more acceptable. He remem-
bered that 40 years ago the
Monticello Opera House was just
a building, now it's alive with
people and activities.
Racial attitudes are much
better; everybody works well
together for the good of all. He
attributes this to the efforts of
the Ministerial Association, to
lessen tensions all those years
In conclusion he adds,
'Always have something in your
hand, so you look as if you are

A little boy opened the big and old family Bible with fas-
cination, looking at the old pages as he turned them. Then
something fell out, and he picked it up and looked at it close-
It was an old leaf from a tree that had been pressed in
between the pages. "Momma, look what I found," the boy
"What have you got there, dear?" his mother asked.
With astonishment in his voice, he answered, "It's
Adam's Suit!"

Fat Tuesday At St. Margaret Catholic Church

Pat and Art Morthier, of Three Sisters
Restaurant, catered The Fat Tuesday event at
St. Margaret Catholic Church. They continued
to enjoy the celebration even after staying up
most the night before preparing the meal.

Mardi Gras" means, "Fat
Tuesday." Traditionally, it is the
last day for Catholics to indulge,
and often overindulge, before Ash
Wednesday starts the sober weeks
of fasting that come with Lent.
Formally known as Shrove
Tuesday, Mardi Gras has long
been a time of extravagant fun for
European Christians.
In 1872 the Russian Grand
Duke Alexis Romanoff visited

New Orleans at Mardi Gras. A
group of businessmen organized
the Krewe of Rex to host a parade
for the occasion, and appointed a
"King for the Day" so that the
grand duke could have a royal
Naming kings and queens at
Mardi Gras balls has been a tradi-
tion of the krewes ever since.
Another tradition that began
with the royal visit was the
Romanoff house colors. Purple for
Justice, Green for Faith, and Gold
for Power, became the official col-

ors of Mardi Gras.
The St. Margaret Parish Hall
was filled with'these colors, and
with decorations adding to the fes-
tivities on the evening of Feb. 5.
Some guests attending "dress-
ed" for the occasion, and all took
the opportunity to wear the col-
ored beads and rings decorating
the tables.
The event was catered by
Three Sisters Restaurant and Pat
and Art Morthier. They worked
well into the night to make sure
enough food was prepared for the

100 or so guests attending.
The buffet tables were filled
with the festival meal of tradition,
