Monticello Readies For Bluegrass Music Festival
Senior Staff Writer
Excitement is building for the
first Southern Music Rising Festi-
val, an event that promises to
bring scores of musicians and
thousands of music lovers into the
city for the weekend of April 18-19.
Sponsored by the Foundation
for the Preservation of Historic
American Music and billed as the
first of what is expected to become
an annual economic development
affair to promote Monticello, the
festival will highlight Gospel and
bluegrass music this time around.
It is also expected to exceed the ini-
tial expectations as to the size of
the audience it will draw.
"We thought it would shoot a
couple of hundred thousand into
the local economy," Jack Carswell,
one of the foundation's founding
members, told the City Council on
April 1 as part of his request for
the closing of certain city streets
for the event. "We thought the cul-
tural event would attract about
800. I'm willing to bet the ranch on
2,500 now and hope it's not 5,000."
He said word of the festival
was being advertised in South
Georgia and across north and part
of central Florida.
As Carswell described the
schedule, the festival kicks off 6:30
p.m. Friday, April 18, with a Gospiel
concert in the Opera House, featur-
ing various area church choirs and
the North Florida Community Col-
lege community chorus. Dr.
Arnold Burkart, a retired music
professor, will mc the affair and
talk about the history and develop-
ment of Gospel music between per-
formances. Concert admission is
$7 for adults and $1 for children.
Hot dogs, refreshments and possi-
bly other foods will be available in
the bottom floor of the Opera
House during the event.
"I'm excited," Carswell said of
On Saturday, April 19, the fes-
tivities start 11 a.m. and continue
until 6 p.m., with a planned 30
bands performing bluegrass music

VIEWPOINTS & PINIONS
Letters to the Editor are typed word for word, comma for comma, as sent to this newspaper.
Regarding the recent controversy about members of the Planning Commission seeking public office and not
resigning from the Planning Commission, let me explain my position:
Past members of the Planning Commission seeking public office, including Fred Williams, Skeet Joyner,
Danny Monroe, and Wendy Moss voluntarily resigned their seats on the Planning Commission to avoid a poten-
tial conflict of interest. This also included David Ward, who resigned because his father, Dr. John Ward, was seek-
ing a County Commission seat. Wendy Moss was advised during a Planning Commission meeting that she should
resign her position.
At the Planning Commission meeting regarding the horse track, Angela Gray stated that she might have a
conflict of interest with the participants involved with the application. She was advised by council that since she
no longer worked for the parties involved, it might not be a conflict, but many people thought it was a serious con-
At the same meeting, planning commissioner C.P. Miller stated that the increase in jobs and the increase of
infrastructure brought by the horse track would be good for the county. Mr. Miller's long dissertation on the sub-
ject, I thought, was his opening statement for his political campaign. And after stating all the good that the track
would bring to the county, he voted against it.
As to the application for the horse track, the Economic Development Council, of which Mr. Miller is a mem-
ber, presented-a paper alluding to all the good that the horse track would bring to our county with an increased
ad-valorem tax base and jobs. He made a statement that there were a lot of votes in the audience, which swayed
him to vote against it.
As to Ms. Gray, I feel that her vote against the track played to the partisan audience against the track, as she
is seeking a countywide office. I stated, in a County Commission meeting and a Planning Commission meeting,
that I would like for Ms. Gray to stay on the Planning Commission.
I felt, as did the Planning Department staff, council, and some other members of the Planning Commission,
that the application for the horse track was complete, proper, and one of the best applications we had ever
Morally, there is no way that a person can serve on the Planning Commission, with the responsibility we have
to the public, and run for public office and tell voters what they want to hear just for their vote, which may reflect
back to a vote on the Planning Commission.
I hope this explains my concerns on this issue.

MPD had tracked the evidence gathered from the crime
scene, back to two 16-year-old juveniles.
Eventually, the two 16 year-olds allegedly confessed
to participating in the robbery and cooperated with the
Evidence was recovered from two separate resi-
dences, including the .38 caliber revolver used in the
The third suspect was identified as a 17-year-old
juvenile, who was apparently the gunman. An arrest
warrant was issued for the 17-year-old, who eluded offi-
cers throughout the weekend, until MPD Investigator
Alkota Byford and JCSO deputies Chris Eades and Toby
Ward, cornered the suspect in a city residence early
Sunday morning. Officers entered and found the suspect
The 17 year-old also allegedly confessed to the
attempted robbery. During interviews with the sus-
pects, Murphy learned that the three juvenileg-planned
their robbery on Cheng as they knew he operated a local
restaurant and believed he would be carrying cash from
the business after closing up for the evening.
Murphy also learned there was an attempt to rob
another city business earlier that evening. However,
when the suspects arrived to attempt that robbery, they
found two police cars patrolling in the area and aban-
doned the attempt.

ick Bush and Penny, also came into the establishment.
As Mimms and Glover went to leave, Bush
approached them and asked Minmmns if he had something
to say to him. Mimms said no and he and Glover exited
Bush reportedly followed them outside and pushed
Mimms. Glover then stepped between the two and Bush
pushed her. Mimms told Glover to get into the vehicle,
and they both got inside.
Mimms called 911 while Burns walked around their
vehicle, calling them "Crackers." ("Crackers" is a slang
term used in racial slurs.)
Glover, who was the driver, drove to the Wendy's
parking lot to wait for deputies to arrive. Bush and
Penny got into their vehicle, and Penny, who was the
driver, followed the couple to the parking lot.
Mimms and Glover, the drove to then Nugget store
because of better lighting.
Penny and Bush then got on 1-10, and Mimms and
Glover decided to follow them to get a tag number. After
seeing that there was no tag on the white Ford pickup,
they passed it and exited onto SR-59.
After they exited, the white Ford pickup rammed
their vehicle three times, with the third time resulting
in the victims crashing their vehicle. Both victims
Penny and Bush then fled the scene.
During the investigation, a witness identified Penny
.and Bush as the suspects. A female also identified the
pair in a photo line-up.
On November 11, 2006, the JCSO recovered a stolen
:2007 white Ford F-350 Dually pickup. It had been report-
;ed stolen by the Havana Police Department. The pickup
'had damage to the right front, which was consistent
:with the damage to the victim's vehicle.
The pickup was submitted to the FDLE crime lab
*latent print section for analysis. The crime lab lifted a
,fingerprint of value for identification purposes, which
:was lifted from the suspect vehicle. The fingerprint was
'identified as a positive match for Penny.

outs. The two suspects, who entered the store together,
then exited together in less than three minutes a.
The money that was stolen was not noticed missing
until the following day by the manager. The entire
crime was captured by the store's nine surveillance cam-
era system by nine different cameras.
On January 15, JCSO received a report from the
Jacksonville PD and Tallahassee PD concerning conven-
ience store burglaries. Jefferson County deputies met
with TPD investigators and viewed a tape of Tallahassee
convenience store theft, which had occurred in
Tallahassee just three hours prior to the Jefferson
County theft. The suspects were the same as in the
Jefferson video and were wearing the same clothing.
While Cobb was being held in the Jacksonville jail,
he allegedly confessed to crimes in Duval and Clay coun-
ties, as well as in Tallahassee.
Due to the fact that Cobb confessed to the crime in
Tallahassee, he could be identified as the suspect in the
Jefferson County robbery, as well.

simultaneously at one of six venues around the down-
town area. These venues include the Opera House
patio, complete with a beer and wine garden; Jackie
Andris' antique shop off Mulberry Street; the Wirick-
Simpson historic house on North Jefferson Street; and
a mobile stage that will be set up on Dogwood, one of
the streets to be closed. A $5 all-day pass gets ticket
buyers into all six venues.
Food vendors also will be part of the activities, as
will a dozen or so designated hosts who will be avail-
able throughout the day to provide visitors with infor-
mation about the festival, the town, the local history
and other points of interest. The festivaPs promoters
have even established a headquarters and a first-aid
station to deal with unexpected occurrences.
The festivities conclude Saturday evening with a
bluegrass concert starting at 7 p.m. in the Opera House.
Florida Scrub, the opening act, will warm up the
audience for the main attraction, the nationally
acclaimed Blue Highway, a bluegrass group that has
recorded eight albums. Following the performance,
musicians will hold a jam session in the first floor of
the Opera House. Tickets for the evening concert are
$15, with some 200 of the 350 or so available tickets
already sold by last week.
Organized late last year, the nonprofit foundation
aims to preserve and promote the appreciation and per-
formance of historical American music. Ultimately, the
group envisions having a permanent building, where ,
musical performances can be staged on a regular basis
and memorabilia and other artifacts of Southern histo-
ry and heritage can be displayed. It is the group's best
hope that the festival will serve to help make
Monticello a destination point.
Pageant/Sports Etiquette = Life Etiquette
I had a lot of comments on last week's column, "It Makes A
Comments ranged from the picture of me and my girls, or to the
fact that so many girls don't know how to dress appropriately, and to
the fact that some girls (and parents) don't know how to act
in/during/after a pageant.
That was when I got the idea for this column.
Last week I stressed the fact of how I believe that pageants are
good for young girls. I truly believe that (when handled correctly)
pageants can become a true stepping stone for many young girls and
women. The Miss Florida America Pageant, alone, gives thousands
and thousands of scholarship dollars, each year, to contestants and
The stressed wording here would be "when handled correctly."
Last week I also spoke of how much I really enjoyed pageants.
Pageants were truly my hobby and a past-time that I enjoyed. I
absolutely loved to enter them. Butterflies in the stomach, nerves,
curlers, make-up, pretty dresses, the whole nine-yards. It was just
I had thought to venture into how I believe a contestant (and
their parents) should act, however, I thought I might get a little too
long. (The staff fusses at me if I write too much and they don't have
enough room for jumps and other things.)
However, with some comments I received this week I thought
that maybe I would just make this a "Part II" column.
I mentioned that my parents took me wherever I wanted to enter
a pageant. They encouraged me, stood beside me, and loved me, no
matter what the outcome. When I walked off the stage (win, lose, or
draw), I was hugged, kissed, told "I love you" and "You did great!"
I was always told, "Do your best. That is all that matters."
Many pageants I won. Many pageants I didn't. But the reception
from my parents was always the same, "You did great. We are proud
This is the meaning behind this week's column.
So many times, in pageants, as well as other extra curricular
activities, this is not what I see. I see parents push the children so
hard that the "sport" is no longer fun. The child is so afraid of mess-
ing up and disappointing the parents that their concentration is on
that fear, not on having fun. I listen to parents yell at the children
while running up and down the basketball court, or actually even
"boo" other beauty pageant contestants. While director of the Miss
Madison pageant I saw so many parents show their disappointment of
"not winning" to their children, that the child was no longer proud of
the first runner-up or second runner-up title.
That to me is so self-centered and so un-nurturing.
Of course, when I stepped off a stage without a crown on my
head, I felt as if I had let my parents down. Every child will feel like
that. It then becomes the job of the parents to take that fear/pain
away. God gave you the privilege of becoming a parent. Take that
responsibility and bless your children with it.
Win, lose, or draw when your child walks off that stage, or bas-
ketball court, or football field encourage them, love them, no matter
what the outcome. Hug them, kiss them, tell them, "I love you," "You
did great," and "We are so proud of you." That is what really matters
in the end.
When your children are 40 or 50 years old they will not remem-
ber if they won or lost that game to FAMU, or Robert F. Monroe, or
even to North Florida Christian. What they will remember is how
they felt, and how YOU made them feel.
I am 39 years old, and when I look back on my childhood I have
nothing but compliments and loving terms of endearment in my
memory banks. I never felt like I couldn't measure up, and I never
felt like I was not good enough. I KNEW my parents were proud of
me and I KNEW my parents loved me.
THAT is what is important in your child's life. Not cell phones,
movies, I-Pods, and socializing with friends each and every weekend.
Love from family members will always be the strongest in the memo-
ry banks, as life goes on. Love them no matter what, and teach them
to love themselves.
Along with the responsibility of the parent acting correctly,
comes the responsibility of the parent teaching the child how to act
responsible. There should be no back-stabbing or hard-feelings.
Everyone got out there, tried their best, and that is all that matters.
Teach your children that they cannot ALWAYS win EVERYTHING
in life. Life is full of hardships and disappointments, along with hap-
piness and enjoyment. How we act will determine which we have -
happiness and enjoyment or disappointment and sadness.
Be proud of who you are and where you are. Teach your chil-
dren to be proud of who they are, and where they are in God's

AAPOA Community Center.
Elections for the board of directors took place with
resident candidates running including: Ashley Hotz,
Richard Mihan (incumbent secretary) John Keller,
Jerry Byrd, Heather Johnson, Tom Pertierra, and Mari-
There were also two nominations from the floor for
Tim Thompson and Rick Walton.
The total votes presented was 216, with tabulations
done manually by three separate counters; Lynn Salter,
Abby McGehee and Suzanne Gill. When the totals from
each counter were compared, despite minor discrepan-

no close results.
Ashley Hotz: 188/139/137; John Kellar: 124/125/119;
Richard Mihan: 122/123/121.

five years would be difficult to conduct because of in-
Salter stated that he fully supports all recommenda-
tions made by the auditors and instituted a new policy
for all incoming bookkeepers and treasurers. They will
meet once a month, and if the treasurer should miss two
meetings, that person would be replaced. He said it was
mandatory that the treasurer and bookkeeper work to-
gether at all times.
Newly elected treasurer Ashley Hotz suggested that
duplicate financial records be maintained in two sepa-
rate locations-one secured by lock and key at the
AAPOA office, and the other is a safe deposit box at a

County Native Teasley Pitches No Hitter
Lukas "Luke" Teasley,
the 16 year-old son of Jef-
ferson County resident
Bert Teasley and Brenda
Burns of Buena Vista, GA,
has been making a name
for himself in high school
sports, as well as gaining
the attention of national
Teasley attends Marion
County High School and
plays for the Eagles on the
baseball team as a short-
stop and pitcher.
He threw a perfect
game and a no-hitter last
year at Arnold High in Panama City Bea'ch,
FL, and the Marion County junior tossed his
first no-hitter in Georgia on Friday, March
28, as the Eagles beat Callaway, a Class AA
semifinalist from last season and a presea-
son number six this year, 7-0.
All Teasley could talk about was his
teammates and the plays they made to help
"The pitching was pretty good, but we
couldn't have won without hitting and de-
fense," said Teasley "I'm sure a lot of people
thought we couldn't beat them, but anybody
can be beaten in baseball."
Teasley (3-2) struck out nine batters
while walking none, and he wasn't too
shabby at the plate going three for four with
"Teasley had all of his pitches working
and was dominating on the mound," said
coach Derek Goodroe. "He kept the batters
off-balance all night long."
Teasley said coming from Florida and
not knowing a lot about the team's oppo-
nents that he's not intimidated by any team.
"I heard they were
good, and when I saw them,
they looked pretty good," he
"When I started
pitching to them, I thought
it was going to be like Pike
County (a 10-0 loss). But
they were helping me out.
My curve was working big
time. It's breaking like it
hasn't been the last couple
of years. It starts down the
middle, and they would
swing at them. I was getting
ahead and establishing my
fast ball early."
The Eagles (9-4) took
a 4-0 lead behind David
Warat's two-run home run
in the first inning, his first of two round-
trippers, and Teasley's two-run single in the
Teasley had a perfect game going
through the first four innings when an error
ended that streak. The Eagles finished with
three on the night, but a much better per-
formance then it made seven against Rut-
"The guys came out and played ab-
solutely wonderful," said Goodroe. "This
was the exact opposite of when we played
against Rutland. That was about as bad as
you can play, but this was about the best."
Teasley said he began to think he could
throw a no-hitter around the fourth inning
when he struck out Callaway's number two
hitter and got the Cavaliers' number three
He mentioned plays from teammates
Chris Miller, Cody Brown, Chad Wells and
Warat, who he said called the best game of
the season from behind the plate. "We
played an amazing game," concluded

Time for Some Financial
Provided by Robert J. Davison
You may or may not engage in many of the typical activities
of "spring cleaning" de-cluttering the attic, reorganizing
your closets, touching up the paint, etc. but you can al-
most certainly benefit from "sprucing up" your financial situ-
As you survey your financial landscape, what areas might
you want to tidy up? Here are a few suggestions:
*Clear your portfolio of "redundant" investments. Over
time, you may have built a sizable investment portfolio.
But if you have too many investments that look alike,
you may actually be hindering your progress toward
your goals. After all, if you own a dozen stocks of com-
panies in the same industry, they're all likely to be buf-
feted by the same economic forces. Look for opportuni-
ties to replace some of these "redundancies" with differ-
ent types of securities, taking into account your risk tol-.
erance and time horizon.
Organize your financial records. If you're like those of
us who.file our taxes at the last minute, now is the per-
fect time to organize your financial records, because
you've probably got them close at hand. And it's not
just a matter of having your brokerage and 401(k) state-
ments in nice, neat piles. Once you've got these docu-
ments together, you might see opportunities to consoli-
date some of your accounts. For example, you may have
IRAs with different banks and financial services compa-
nies, By moving them all to one provider, and possibly
rolling over an old 401(k) into an IRA, you could save
some fees and reduce your paperwork, but, more impor-
tantly, you may find that such a move actually helps
you better manage your investments. You'll know ex-
actly what you're invested in, and it will be easier to
follow a single investment strategy. Also, with all your
IRAs in one place, it will be much easier for you to
manage the required minimum distributions you must
start taking when you turn 70-1/2. '(These distributions
are not required for Roth IRAs.)
*Review your "systematic" investments. Many years ago,
you might have started systematically moving money
from your checking account into an investment. But
perhaps the circumstances of your life have changed and
this money could better be used elsewhere. Scrutinize
your automatic investments to see if they still make
sense for you.
*Check your beneficiaries. Beneficiary designations on
financial documents insurance policies, IRAs, 401(k)s,
etc. are extremely important, because they supersede
even the instructions in your will. Over time, your fam-
ily situation may have changed, through death, divorce,
remarriage or the birth of new children, so you should
periodically review all your beneficiary designations.
*Examine your insurance coverage. When you have a
young family, you need a certain amount of life insur-
ance coverage to provide for some major expenses -
such as your mortgage, college for your kids, perhaps
some retirement funds for your spouse. But when your
children have grown, your mortgage is paid and your
spouse has decades' worth of retirement savings, your
insurance needs may change considerably. At the same
time, you may find other uses for insurance. Take some
time and review your insurance coverage with your fi-
By following these "spring cleaning" suggestions, you can
help put your financial house in order for the seasons to fol-
low. Take action soon.

April is Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals Month.
There is a strong correla-
tion between violence to-
wards animals and
violence towards people
and Pawprints and Purrs,
Inc., has joined with the
ASPCA to make this fact
Animal abusers fall
into three groups. In the
first group are people who
abuse animals but don't do
The next group of ani-
mal abusers does it on pur-
pose, but for a short period
The third group of peo-
ple who hurt animals is
the worst. These are people
who intentionally hurt an-
imals because they enjoy
hurting living beings, or
because it makes them feel
The first group con-
sists of people who don't
realize what kinds of shel-
ter different animals need,
or who have so many pets
that they can't care for
them all. Since most of the
people who abuse animals
make up this group, this
means most people who
abuse animals can be
helped with basic educa-
The second group is
usually young people, and
they hurt animals because
they aren't thinking, or be-
cause they can't stand up
to their friends and peer
pressure. They might be
angry at someone else (like
their parents) and kick
their pet dog because they
can't kick their parents.
Or they may think it's
fun to watch an animal
run away scared without
really thinking about how
the animal feels. The ones
who are giving in to peer
pressure might be trying
to show off to their
friends. Or they may be
with a group of friends
who are all trying to im-
press each other, and so
they go along with what
everyone else is doing.

serious. In most states,
those caught doing this
will face harsher punish-
ment than those who hurt
This latter group learns to
think about how others
feel, and they learn to
stand up for themselves,
and can be reached
through education and
The third group of peo-
ple who hurt animals is
the worst, but fortunately
are the least common.
These are people who in-
tentionally hurt animals
because they enjoy hurt-
ing things, or because it
makes them feel powerful.
They would hurt people, if
they could get away with
it, but choose helpless ani-
Why do these people do
this? There are different
reasons. Some want to
have control over others.
They will hurt an animal
because they think this
means they control the an-
imal. Or they may hurt the
animal to control another
For example, a hus-
band might hurt the fam-
ily's pet to show his wife
what he could do to her if
she doesn't obey his com-
mands. Someone else
might make his dog kill
other dogs because he or
his friends think that
makes him powerful.
Others simply enjoy
pain and violence. Those
who enjoy violence might
also destroy inanimate
things as well as animals
All of the people in
this last group suffer from
problems that will proba-
bly not go away on their
own. They often need the
help of licensed profes-
sionals like a psycholo-
Most are probably
born with their problems
(even if the problem does-
n't come out right away),
but others can get their
problems from brain dam-
age, poisonous environ-
ments, or being treated
badly themselves. Without
help, psychological prob-
lems can haunt them their

down what you saw hap-
pen, who was involved, the
date of incident and where
it took place. It's very im-
portant to inform the po-
lice because animal

Midnight, the abused
and abandoned horse res-
cued by the Humane Soci-
ety last year, remains
happy, healthy and still
awaiting permanent adop-
Foster home provider,
Margaret McMurray notes
that midnight is approxi-
mately 30 years old and too
old to be ridden. "But he's
a great pasture buddy, and
he gets along very well with
other horses," she said.
McMurray said the Hu-
mane Society is still seek-
ing just the right place for
him to live. "So he can live
out the rest of his days in a
happy state," she said.
The adoption fee for
midnight is $100, which
couldn't begin to cover the
cost of nursing him back to
Donors have included
local farms, sponsors, the
Humane Society, and Mc-
Murray, who paid signifi-
contributions for the care
of the animal.
Midnight was rescued
by the Humane Society and
brought to McMurray's
farm for rehabilitation,
over Memorial Day week-
McMurray recalls, "He
was very skinny, no more
than skin draped over
boned, very neglected and
"You could see it in his
eyes," said McMurray "He
was starving for love, atten-
tion and care. Her had
gone a long time with no
food or water."
She said the power had
been cut off in his previous
location, and there was no
way to get water to him.
On his first day at the
McMurray farm, he began
to show changes. "He was
just so happy to finally be
getting food, water, and at-
tention," she said. 'Alto-
gether, it took about several
days before he even started
wanting to act like a
McMurray recalls that
after just a few days, his
eyes were big and bright.
His personality greatly im-
proved each day, to the
point of neighing, pranc-
ing, playing and getting
frisky with the farm mare.
