It seems that the cur-

already impacting eco-

Economic Develop-

ley reported Monday,
Sept. 2.9, that the melt-
down is apparently delay-
ing the planned relocation
of the California-based
British Tea and Active Pet
Feeds companies here.
Conley said she con-
tacted Graham Tweed last

formed her that the recent
debacle of Lehman Broth-
ers Holdings, Inc., had im-
pacted him. Tweed is the
owner of the British Tea
and Active Pet Feeds com-
panies. Lehman Brothers
was one of Wall Street's
investment giants until
recently, when it filed for
liquidation after huge
losses in the mortgage
Conley said Tweed in-
formed her that he had no
problems with Jefferson
County's proposed con-
tract for the sale of the
property at the industrial
park or with the county's
attached covenants and,
restrictions. But he was
holding his options open

they were not the first

Sam Colt invented the

Therefore, all
revolvers are correctly

Reader Advises Voters To

Check Facts About Candidates

Dear Editor:
I'd like to add my two cents to the
political discussion going on in your col-
umn. My focus is on how we, as voters,
can best arm ourselves with good infor-
mation. The letters in response to the
original editorial about the candidates
tax plans were informative and helpful. is an excellent website
that clarifies and corrects inaccurate
political events, quotes, hearsay and so
on. is another excellent web-
site that investigates urban legends of all
kinds, including political ones. The email
reproduced in the original editorial
appears in both of these sites.
The best place to get good information
is from unbiased sources-if there is such a
thing. In a world where newspapers
endorse political candidates, newspapers
cannot be trusted unconditionally to pro-
vide good information. To my fellow yot-,
ers, I say, "Always suspect bias!"
In his letter to the editor, Mr.
Buchanan listed three news paper arti-
cles, all of which cite the same source:
The Tax Policy Center's Preliminary 2008
Analysis of the Presidential Candidate's
Tax Plans. As voters, we must do our own
reading and investigation. The updated
analysis, dated September 12, is available
I read the analysis and by the authors'
own admission, it is a work in progress
that is still highly assumptive:
"As noted below, important details of
both plans are not known, so we made
assumptions that might or might not be
consistent with the final plans proposed'
by each campaign (Sept. 12 revision, p.
"It should be emphasized that these
estimates are simply illustrative since we
had to assume so.much about each candi-
date's plan (Sept. 12 revision, p. 55)." '
I suspect that bias is possible in this
report because of the way the two plans
are summarized, on pages 20-21 and pages
27-28. The section headings are different
and the amount of discussion is different.
I also think that there is a great deal
of helpful information in this analysis
and it gives voters some information to
work with, but this report is not "fact." I
believe that' the Tax Policy Center will
continue to update its analysis as more
information is obtained.
Always suspect bias and try to find
the truth for yourself. Identify your own
biases,and make yourself see people and
issues with clear vision. It is so easy to
interpret what you see in a way that fits
your own perspective. The problem with
that is, especially in politics, it becomes

far too easy to reach conclusions based on
incomplete information.
Do not trust websites that claim to be
impartial until you are totally convinced
that they truly are unbiased. The biggest
clue is in how the information is present-
ed. Websites that present data or com-
ments such as Obama "removed the
American flag from his plane" or..that
McCain is "against equal pay for equal
work" are biased and should not be trust-
ed to post reliable information.
A small amount of sleuthing will
uncover that the truth.
Most importantly, do not listen to,
trust, or base your vote on polls. Polls rep-
resent election tampering in its most
insidious form. Bias, bias, bias. The most
dangerous thing about polls is that they
tend to reflect the views of people who
have not yet done any real thinking about
candidates or issues.
Based on, earlier Democratic and
Republican strategic plans, I think that
the political parties are relying on voters
to remain an uneducated "soup" that they
can stir up and convince us to vote in
their favor.
The updated Democratic and
Republican strategic plans are available
at these websites: http:/.
36- Analysis. pdf
s/pdf/bg080916/08%20 W eek%208%20
Memo. f. pdf
The first is the Republican one by the
Tarrance Group, and the second is the
Democratic one by Lake Research
I have not read them yet, but I read
every word of both strategic plans in 2005
and nowhere did I see that a goal for
either party was to represent the people
more effectively. If the political parties
really cared about effective governance,
they would seek feedback from the public
about how to improve communication
regarding bills that are up for a vote.
Nowhere in the surveys for these 2005
strategic, plans was such a question
addressed. The primary focus of these
plans was to win elections and nothing
If these 2008 strategic plans are the
same, then therein lies the problem and
shame on the political parties. The only
alternative for voters, as in "We, the
People," is to think for ourselves and
demand better representation from the
people we elect.

Dear Editor:
I attended a play last week at the
Opera House, on a Sunday afternoon.
Being new to this area, I had never lived
in a town where they had such a unique
opera house. Unique in terms of the sense
of the ambiance prevalent in another era.
I was introduced to the Opera House a
few months ago attending the play "Don't
Trash Mother Earth." I attended each
show, because friends of mine were par-
ticipating in the show.
The honest fact is I enjoyed each per-
formance more than the previous one.
The actors seemed to find their rhythm
more enhanced with each showing. At
any rate by time the show had closed, I
found myself as some kind of a "theatre
But to get back to the original topic.
The show last Sunday was called "Nice
People Dancing to Good Country Music."
The strange thing is I enjoyed this
show very much, despite the fact due to a
hearing loss.

I probably only heard about fifteen
words in the whole play. Now I was told
later there was some "crusty" language
not normally present in Opera House pro-
It didn't matter personally because I
did not hear one word of it. This is only
part of the enjoyment, as when I read the
Monticello News on Wednesday, Ray
Cichon wrote a review of the play in his
article, enableling me to now fully under-
stand what had happened.
In closing, the only disappointing
aspect of the experience was the sparse
crowd. You had to feel for the actors who
certainly practiced very hard.
Despite the sparse crowd the actors
did not seem fazed at all. It was plain to
see the actors were pouring out their
hearts-and souls to give us the best show
possible. Thank you guys!

St., body-slammed her and
then hit Thompson with a pipe.
Thompson stated that he
pushed Ford off of Lewis and
then Ford hit him with a chair.
Colson reported that
Lewis was covered with dirt,
complaining about her right
shoulder, and she was bleeding
from her left ear. Thompson
was bleeding from his forehead
and beside his left eye. Both
Lewis and Thompson gave
sworn written statements.

Ford was still on the scene,
cussing at Lewis and
Thompson, calling them liars.
Colson explained to Ford that
he needed to -calm down and'
stand beside his MPD cruiser
so he could obtain Ford's side
of the story, but Ford contin-
ued yelling at Lewis and

that Ford had no visible signs

Colson talked with

Johnny Gaines, who stated
that the three of them (Ford,

stated that he went outside

begin working here two days

Per the interlocal agree-
ment that Jefferson County
commissioners signed Sept.
18, Bradley will spend Tues-
days and Thursdays here for
a total of 16 hours weekly
and the, county will pay 40
percent of his salary for the
service, or $18,173 annually.

the driver side door off the
vehicle to get Joseph who
was trapped inside. Also as-

reversing roles as to which is

Jefferson County has
been without a VA officer for
some time now. Emergency '
Management Director Carol

the VA officer's duties in the Oliver Bradley
interim, a situation that
county officials decided-
could not continue indefi-

As emergency workers

traffic in both east and west-
bound lanes of the Interstate

port Joseph.

an information system that
captures, stores, analyzes,
manages and presents data
that is spatially linked to
geographical locations.
Ward said it occurred
to him that as the person-
nel changed at the emer-
gency medical and fire
protection services, many
of the new recruits were
apt to be unfamiliar with
the county and its land-
marks. This unfamiliarity
could well translate- into
lost minutes as these indi-
viduals searched for an ad-
dress in an emergency
situation, where every sec-
ond counted, he said.
Hence, Ward figured that
the two operations could
well benefit from the lap-

Horse Arena

and its storm-water runoff
plan to Environmental
Consulting and Technol-
ogy, Inc. (ECT).
Actually, Lee Smith,
who formerly owned an en-
gineering firm here, de-
signed the arena and
storm-water runoff plan a
while back. But Smith has
since closed his office and
joined ECT, making the
technicality of the con-
tract transfer necessary
before the county can sub-
mit the storm-water plan

That's because the
smaller the pool of em-

iff's Department has only
some 40 employees. Sim-
ply by joining the county's
larger employee pool then,
the per-employee cost for
the Sheriff's Department
dropped from $462 to $406,
Reams said.
For county employees,
the per-employee pro-
jected increase and real-
ized savings was less
dramatic, going from $399
to $407 monthly Still, over-

said. "We just have to re-

She said she took hope
from the fact that Tweed
continues to work with the
consultant whom the
county hired to seek a fed-
eral grant for the upgrade
of the infrastructure at the
industrial park. The up-
grade, which includes the
extension of the roadway
and the sewer capabilities
at the industrial park, are
necessary to accommodate
Tweed's two companies. At
the same time, acquisition
of the grant is contingent,
among other factors, on the
number of jobs that the
two companies are ex-

tops, a surmise 'that Fire
Rescue Chief Jim Billberry
heartily endorsed.
The way Billberry tells
it, each ambulance and fire
truck is now equipped with
a laptop, which allows the
crews to access the vital in-
formation while en route to
an emergency call. Thus,
the emergency personnel
can bring up 911-addresses
on their laptop screens and
know the exact location of
their intended destination.
Or they can pull up an over-
lay map grid with the ap-
propriate road systems

that the county owns just
southeast of the Green In-
dustries Institute, off US
90 about four miles west of
Monticello. The county's
plan dalls for construction
of an open-air arena, along
with bleachers, a half-mile
of riding and walking
trails, picnic tables and
restroom facilities, among
other amenities.
County officials at one
. time envisioned that the
livestock and horse arena
would serve as the spring-
board for what they saw in
time as becoming a multi-
ple-use agricultural com-
plex and park at the site,
complete with offices for
the local, state and federal
agencies that serve the-
agricultural sector here.
In the 2007 legislative
session, local officials suc-
cessfully lobbied the Legis-

"That represents a
total savings of about
$30,000 for the county and.
the Sheriff," Reams said.
He said that some ad-
ditional benefits that
came to the Sheriff's De-
partment as part of the
deal were that there would
be no exclusion of preex-
isting conditions (mean-
ing that insurance covers
preexisting medical condi-'
tions), and the outpatient
surgery deductible
dropped from $200 to zero.
Reams could not say
why the Sheriff's Depart-
ment has insured its em-
ployees separate from
other county employees
all this while. But once the
proposal was presented to
Sheriff David Hobbs and

As for the engineering
plan for the infrastructure
upgrades, Conley said the
engineer had now com-
pleted the plan and it was
in the county's possession.
But she expected that
county officials would
await the outcome of the,
grant application before
proceeding one way or the
other with the plan, she

county officials about the
possibility of Tweed bring-

"Thanks to David Ward

otherwise,". Billberry told

lature into appropriating
$1,750,000 for completion
of the arena and construc-
tion of the complex. The
Governor, however, vetoed
the appropriation as part
of the $460,667,584 that he
slashed from the state's
then budget of $71.3 bil-
lion. The local lobbying ef-
fort produced little result
in the 2008 legislative ses-
__.sion,_due to-the state's
budgetary constraints as a
result of the slumping real
estate market and other
economic factors.
Local officials have not
yet given up on the idea of
a multiplex agricultural
center at the site. But with
the economic downturn
and the resulting drop in

of state revenues, that vi-
sion is being projected out
farther and farther into

proved the change
immediately, Reams said.
"Next year, we'll look
to see if we can bring the
School Board into the
deal," Reams said. "The
larger the group, the big-
ger the savings."
This is not the first
time that Reams has saved
the county money in in-
surance costs. Shortly
after his election to the of-
fice of Clerk of Court a lit-
tle more than two years
-ago, Reams had the health
insurance re-bid, which
action resulted in a

Consider Consolidating

Retirement Assets
Provided by Robert J. Davison

By the time you retire, you'll probably have accumulated
money in a variety of retirement-savings vehicles at a variety
of locations an IRA here, a 401(k) there and so on. At
first glance, that may sound all right, but there are some
sound reasons why you might want to consolidate your re
tirement accounts to one provider.
Here are some of the key benefits you can receive from this
type of consolidation:
You'll keep better track of your assets. Like most people,
you probably think that you will never lose track of any of the
money you've saved for retirement. But many equally well-
meaning people do misplace or forget about savings and in-
vestments. In fact, the'National" Registry of Unclaimed
Retirement Benefits lists more than 50,000 individuals who
are owed benefits from 401(k)s, profit-sharing plans and IRAs
and either can't be reached or don't respond to inquiries. But
if you hold all your retirement accounts in one place, you are
probably far less likely to "misplace" them than if you kept
them with several financial institutions.
You'll have less trouble calculating minimum distributions.
Once you reach
age 70 -' 2, you'll need to take distributions from your 401(k)
and traditional IRA. (This requirement does not apply to a
Roth IRA.) It's not particularly difficult to calculate the
amount of a distribution from a single IRA or 401(k), but if
you hold several accounts, it could get a bit tricky. For ex-
ample, if you have multiple IRAs, you'll need to add them to-
gether, then divide the- total balance by the IRS' life
expectancy numbers for someone your age. If you hive' sev-
eral 401(k)s, you'll need to calculate the required, minimum
distribution for each 401(k) separately,.using, the same life
expectancy figures as you would with an IRA. Clearly, if you
held a mix of these accounts at different places, you'd have
to do a bit of detective work and a lot of number crunching
to arrive at your required minimum distributions.
You could save money. If you held accounts at several lo-
cations, you cotild be paying a number of fees and mainte-_
nance charges. Individually, each fee or charge may not seem
like much, but they can add up. By consolidating your ac-
counts to one provider, you might be able to save some
You can create a unified strategy. To achieve the retire-
ment lifestyle you've envisioned, you will need to create a
sufficient income stream, drawing from all your retirement
accounts. Among other things, you'll need to know how
much you can afford to withdraw each year, how you can stay
ahead of inflation and how best to control your investment-
related taxes. You'll find it far easier to accomplish these goals
if you have a single, unified investment strategy and it
will be far easier to develop such a strategy if you have all
your retirement accounts at one place, possibly under the
guidance of a single financial advisor.
So, to sum up: The more retirement savings vehicles you
own, the better but when it comes to the number of in-
stitutions holding these accounts, you might just want to stop
at one.

Dryers Frequent

Cause Of Fires

Monticello News
Staff Writer
Last year during Fire
Prevention Month, then
Fire Prevention Educator
Don Burton relayed an
informative story related
to fire prevention and
As a portion of Fire
Prevention Education, he
was also educating adults
on the dangers of dryer
fires. "The heating unit
went out on my dryer and
the repair man told us that
he had something that he
wanted to show us," said
Burton. "He went to the
dryer and pulled out the
lint filter, it was clean
because I always clean the
lint from it after every
load of clothes.
"He took the filter over
to the sink and ran hot
water through it and the
hot water just sat on top of
the metal mesh, rather
than passing through. He
told us that dryer sheets
cause a film over the mesh
and that's what burns out
the heating unit," said
Burton. "It's there, even

said Burton.
He said the best way t(
keep the dryer working
for a long time, twice as

and to also, lower the elec

filter at least every sLi
months, and wash it witi
hot, soapy water and an
old tooth brush or othe]

"I certainly didn'
know that dryer sheets

Burton. "We encourage

Changes In Fire Protection

Monticello News
, Staff Writer
Fire Rescue Chief Jim
Billberry has brought
o about several changes in
g the department since offi-
s cially taking over the posi-
d tion April 21, 2008. He
t came into office with many
t big ideas for improve-
x ments, and since then,
n many of those plans have
r been realized.
Early on, Billberry
t worked with Jefferson
S County Sheriff's Office Sgt
d Kevin Huffmaster who was
e' very helpful in getting new
s radios for all firefighters
r and volunteers, changing

[t radios to UHF radios,

volunteer departments:

Wacissa and Lloyd. Some
25-30 active volunteers
serve the county. Fire

new paramedics, and have

will have three full shifts of
six fulltime firefighters on
each. "When I first came to
Jefferson County, we had
two, then we built it up to
five, and as of Oct. 1,
Jefferson County will have
seven paramedics," said
He has also joined all
county fire departments to
serve as subsidiaries of
Fire Rescue. And,
Billberry earlier stated,
that the Lamont Fire
Station would shortly be
reactivated and Fire
Rescue had donated two
fire trucks, unfortunately,
Billberry said that though
the county now has a build-
ing and trucks on hand in
Lamont, no "bodies" have
yet come forward as volun-
teers for the area.
"Hopefully, we'll get some
in the very near future,"
Billberry added.
Billberry also looked to
get all volunteers through
the Firefighter-1 course,
which was approximately
160'hours of training, and
scheduled to climb to 240
hours of training in
October. Since then, five
local volunteers have
obtained their Firefighter-
1 certifications.
They are: John

training for all area volun-
teers, through which vol-
unteers learn to operate a
variety of equipment,
everything from engines to
tankers, to ambulances.
"Since approximately 85
percent of the calls we
receive are medical, I want
to emphasize the use of the
county ;, volunteers."
Volunteers attended the
EVOC training for the
classroom portion of the
course, and then on
Saturday, they attended
the driving course held at
the dog track.
He added that one
scholarship had been
obtained, which will pay
$2,500 toward Luke Gray

school. The County will
pay for the other half of his
continued education for
the course. Billberry has

Saturday, all firefighters
underwent Tanker
Training, where they
learned to locate the differ-
ent fire hydrants and
ponds throughout the
county. "We are attempt-
ing to prefect how fast we
can get water to fires by
utilization of a tanker shut-
tle," said Billberry.
Billberry also looked to
get all firefighting equip-
ment the same for all
departments so equipment,
such as, air tanks, would be
quickly interchanged with
each other if need be. The
bunker gear and additional
items have since been
accomplished, but due to
finances, the tanks have
not yet been coordinated.
He also implemented it
so firefighters could donate
their leave time they have
earned to other firefighters
who may be in need of it.
Billberry also changed the
function of the department
into three different divi-
sions, EMS will coordinate
staying legal and firefight-
er/paramedics will be
responsible for fire inspec-
tions, fire prevention edu-
cation, and providing pub-
lic information.
"I changed the fire
inspection philosophy.
I'm adamant about not
going in and saying to
business owners, I'll shut
you down; we are not there.
to shut them down. We
are there to help them
know what ihey have to do
to be in compliance with
the law," said Bil1hni'ry,
He added that fire pre-
vention would bo an 8-5
duty for the D shift, and he

presently uses fire situa-
tions after they are extin-
guished, to give volun-
teers hands-on experience
with the equipment used.
Fire Rescue Lt. Ron
Motter described some of
the training that Fire
Rescue personnel as well
as county volunteers,
undergo in the process of
learning their jobs. The
County pays for all
obtained training and
courses required.
First off, is the
Firefighting-1 course,
which teaches different

The course spans an
average of nine months to

attend an additional six
months of training on the
different types of equip-
ment used and their.prop-
er uses. The focus of the

upon arrival, trauma, car-
diac and water-related
emergencies, labor and

tion, IV therapy, just to
name a few.
Billberry continues to
see many improvements
forthcoming to firefight-

he greatly commends his
staff and the county vol-
unteers, without whom,
the job would not get done
in a safe timely fashion.

"This man will never be
too old to get the job done as
long as I'm on the field," Sam
Madison quipped regarding
the quote of announcers,
which stated, "When you
want the job done, send in the
old man."
Exhilarating, rousing,
gripping, stirring and electri-
fying, more than describes the
Giants' 26-23 overtime victory
Sunday. Sept. 21 against the
Cincinnati Bengals in Giants
The Giants were at their
best when the pressure was at
its highest, as they have been
so maliy times the last two
seasons. "I think you expect
that we are going to play well
when the pressure is on and
we are going to find a way to
win the game," Coughlin said.
"We did that today, although
it was a difficult game."
Cincinnati scored first as
Graham kicked a 22-yard field
goal with 38 seconds remain-
ing in the first quarter. The
Bengals advanced from their.
own 37 to the Giants' five,
where they had a first-and-
goal. But two Palmer incom-
pletions sandwiched Perry's
two-.ard run and Cincinnati
settled for the field goal.
The Giants drove 80
yards in nine plays following
a Bengals field goal.
On second-and-10. Perry
took a handoff from PAlmer,
shot through a hole on the
right side of the line and
sprinted to the end zone
untouched. The score capped
an eight-play. 74-yard drive
that featured Palmer passes to
Chatman covering 11 and 25
Jacobs' one-yard touch-
down run or, more accurate-
ly, a leap gave the Giants a 7-
3 lead with 10:36 left in the sec-
ond quarter.
Carney's 24-yard field
goal with 3:55 remaining in
the second quarter tied the
game at 10-10. The Giants
responded to a Bengals touch-
down by driving 51 yards in
six plays. But the Giants
gained one yard on the next
two plays and on third down.
Burress caught Manning's
pass, but couldn't get his feet
down in the back of the end
zone. Coughlin then sent
Carney onto the field.
Graham's second field
goal, a 30-yarder with 32 sec.
onds remaining in the second

quarter, gave Cincinnati its
third lead of the game at 13-10.
an advantage that held up
until halftime. The kick float-
ed over the crossbar despite
Robbins getting a hand on it
at the line of scrimmage.
The Bengals' bid for the
end zone failed when Mathias
Kiwanuka sacked Palmer for
an eight-yard loss, forcing
them to settle for the' field
Bradshaw quickly picked
up five more yards on a pass
from Manning. But Bradshaw
then lost two yards and after a
timeout. Manning's six-yard
pass to Smith left the Giants a
yard short of the first down.
Carney then kicked the
Giants into the lead.
Carney had tied the game
for the second time on his 416-
yard field goal with 6:23
remaining in the second quar-
ter. The Giants set up the
score with a 30-yard drive that
featured a 12-yard Manning
pass to Domenik Hixon on
third-and-10 and Ward's 13-
yard run. But Manning's next
third-down pass to Hixonr
came up five yards short of a
first down, and Carney came
on to kick the field goal.
The Giants moved into
position with a 10-play, 67-
yard drive. The signature
play of the series was a 15-
yard catch-and-run by Smith
that was reminiscent of the
play just prior to Plaxico
Burress' game-winning
touchdown in Super Bowl
XLIl. On thu-d-and-14, Smith
caught a short pass from Eli
Manning, turned up the right
sideline and somehow
retained his balance until he
was past the first down mark-
Carney's third field goal
of the game gave the Giants a
16-13 lead with 11:32 remain-
ing in the fourth quarter. It
was their first advantage
since it wa. 10-7 in the second
The defense sacked
Palmer six times, including
two by Fred Robbins. Antonio
Pierce had 13 tackles (10 solo)
and Kevin Dockery had nine
(eight solo).
The teams traded punts
in the extra period before the
Giants took possession on
their own 34-yard 'line with
10:28 remaining. On second
down. Manning threw a pass
uip the left sidehline for Plaxico
Burress. who hauled it in for a
28-. ard gain. Three plays
later, on thiird-and-10.

Manning went back to the
same side of the field for
Amani Toomer. who gained
31 yards to the Cincinnati
And it was far from fin-
ished after Boss scored.
Palmer showed why he's a
two-time Pro Bowl quarter-
back when he led the Bengals-
down the field against the
strong Giants defense and
with the crowd roaring.
Houshmandzadeh caught
four passes for 53 yards on the
drive and Antonio Chatman
was stopped at the three-yard
line after an 11-yard catch
with only four seconds
remaining. Graham then
kicked his third field goal to
send the game into overtime.
Manning and the offense
responded with a nine-play,
80-yard drive that ended with
a four-yard touchdown pass to
Kevin Boss and a 23-20 advan-
tage with only 1:50 remaining.
Derrick Ward started the
series with a 22-yard run and
Steve Smith made the key
play when he turned a short
Manning pass into a 15-yard
gain on third-and-10.
John Carney's 22-yard
field goal 6:21 into the extra
. period ended a wild game that
included four lead changes
and three ties. The teams
scored three times in the final
4:39 of regulate ion, including a
touchdown by the Giants
with 1:50 remaining and
Shayne's Graham's game-
tying field goal as time
expired. '
During the game, it was
evident that Sam Madison's
role (cornerback) is never
taken lightly. It was proved
when the game went into
overtime and on the second
Giant's possession they got
the ball back because the
Bengals went for a fourth
down conversion and
Madison was on the corner
and batted the ball away from
the Bengal's wide receiver, at
which time, the announcers
replied "When you want the
job done, send in the 'old
man" The Giants' drive put,
them down far enough for
field goal position, which
resulted in the 26-23 win.
When the dust had set-
fled, the Giants were 3-0 for
the first time since 2000 head-
ing into their bye. The
Bengals dropped to 0-3.

Aucilla Christian Acad-
emy will begin celebrating
the annual Spirit Week activi-
ties held throughout the
week, Sept. 29 through Oct. 3,
and capping off the week, the
Annual Homecoming game
against the Randolph-South-
ern Patriots.
Students are urged to par-
ticipate in the weekly events,
collecting points for the class
the represent with the ulti-
mate goal of being named the
"Spirit Award" winners.
The points for each event
will be added all week and the
class that has the most points
wins the "Spirit Award",
which is announced at the Pep
Rally Friday.
The Student Council will
host either a pizza or an ice
cream party for the winning'
class in high school, grades
nine through twelve and mid-
dle school, grades seven and
eight. Points will be awarded
for each event and tallied fol-
lowing the scavenger hunt.
The festivities begin Mon-
day, Sept. 29 with "Pajama
Day", when students will at-
tend school sporting their fa-
vorite nighttime wear and
Tuesday Sept. 30 is "Camo
Day" and students will be
wearing their best camouflage
Wednesday Oct. 1 is "Class
Theme Day". The individual
class themes had not been de-
termined prior to press time.
Thursday, Oct. 2, the sen-
iors will meet with their
"Rats" in the gym at 7:30 a.m.
to dress them in costumes,
which they will wear until
noon. In past years, there have
been- football players dressed
as cheerleaders, fictional char-
acters, teen beauties dressed
as football players and many
additional interesting and cre-
ative costumes, all in fun, com-
ical, and high-spirited.
The "Rat" list will be.
posted outside of the library.
Seniors and their "Rats"
should be in class by first pe-
At 1:09 p.m., students will

nual "Powder Puff" football
game. The games will be held
on a 35-minute schedule and
the freshmen will play
against the seniors, and the
sophomores will play against
the juniors. The winners of
each contest will move on to
the championship game.
The football Warriors
will serve as coaches for the
event. The game has often in
the past proven to be very
competitive, somewhat comi-
cal, and it is amazing to see
how much these girls learn
about playing football in such
a short period of time.
Friday, Oct. 3 is Home-
coming Day, which begins
with grades nine through
twelve finishing their floats
on campus. Field Day will
start with a devotion at ap-
proximately 10:15 a.m. After-
ward, grades seven through
twelve will report to the Fel-
lowship of Christian Ath-


letes Field Day, which will
feature a collection of indi-
vidual and group games
where the different grades
will compete in games such
as Dodge Ball, Ultimate Fris-
bee, Tug of
War, Wheel of
Fortune, and
the ever-popu-
lar Eating Con-
test. A f
lunch, the en-
tire school will
line the road in a
front of the
main building
for the Home-
coming parade.
The elemen-
tary staff mem- 4.-, "
bers will judge ..

Used cars to be sold for as low as

$5.00 Saturday, Oct. 4th!

Thomasville, GA Dreams of buying your own vehicle will come true for some
lucky people on Saturday, Oct. 4th. The area's largest and most successful Toyota
dealer will be selling used cars for as low as $5. Many others will also be available at
unheard of savings!
Billy Clements, of Thomasville Toyota said, "Due to the success of our new Toyota
sales, our preowned department is flooded, and Toyota is still sending us a very
large inventory to keep us stocked on new Toyotas". The sale begins at 9 A.M. on the
Thomasville Toyota property, located at 14724 US 19 south in Thomasville.
The $5 dollar sale is to kick off the clearance of every new and used car on the lot.
Prices will be slashed on the scene Saturday morning at 10:00
A.M. There will be another slasher around 2:00 P.M. The last time the slashed will
walk the lot is at 4:00 P.M. Customers are advised to arrive early to get the car they
want. All Automobiles are on a first come first served basis.
Customers will relax behind the wheel until the "Price Slasher" comes out to mark
the one time clearance price on the windshield.
Those sitting in the car when the "slasher" comes out, get to buy the car at the
radically reduced price, as low as $5, but all will be marked thousands below normal.
Appraisers will be on hand to give absolute top dollar for your trade.
We want to give our friends and neighbors a chance to save money rather than
take these cars off to a "dealers only" sale. During this event, most cars will be sold
for thousands below Kelly Blue Book value. "Everyone interested in a used car will
find a vehicle just right for their budget, even if it is only five dollars" according to
used car manager Dave Broadway. "All applications will be accepted and all
application fees will be waived during this sale, even if you think you do not qualify
for credit, our Special Finance Department promises that they will fight to get you the
car you deserve." Stated Dave.
Thomasville Toyota is famous for its philosophy of guaranteeing the lowest price
in South Georgia and North Florida. They're loaded with quality preowned cars and
they need to be sold quickly, regardless of the profit margin. "When we built this
facility, we did not realize that we would have people bringing trade-ins from 150
mile radiuses to deal with us. We have simply run out of room, and must sell the
used cars to make room for our new Toyotas" exclaimed Lee Graham, Sales
manager at Thomasville Toyota.
This event is one day only, and parking is limited, so be sure to arrive early. The
doors open at 9:00 A.M. For more information, call the friendly folks at Thomasville
Toyota at 229-228-0555 or visit them online at

Staff Writer
Firefighters, first re-
sponders and Emergency
Medical Technicians learn
the importance of "The
Golden Hour," during First
Responder training, which
simply states that the
"Golden Hour" is the maxi-
mum amount of time allot-
ted to remove a trauma
victim from a scene and to
get him/her immediate
medical attention. This
"Golden Hour, greatly in-
creases the victim's
chances of survival.
Assisting emergency
personnel in assuring vic-
tims get medical care in
that "Golden Hour", are the
"Jaws of Life." During
emergencies, .when a few
wasted seconds can cost
lives, the "Jaws of Life" is
brought in to remove vic-
tims from the crushed vehi-
The term "Jaws of
Life" refers to several types
of piston-rod hydraulic
tools known as cutters,
spreaders and rams, which
are used to cut or pry open
vehicles in which victims
may be trapped.
Firefighter Mark
Matthews said there are
three sets of the "Jaws of
Life" in the county; two sets
at Fire Rescue and one set
with the Lloyd Volunteer
Fire Department. "Every-
one at County Fire Rescue
is trained in how to use the
'Jaws of Life', as are the
volunteers," said Matthews.
"The units consist of a
combination cutter/
spreader and a ram. Our
sets are approximately 20
years old, and we're looking
to update them, but it's
pretty expensive, as each
set and tank costs. about
The difference between
the first generation sets in
the county and the newer -
versions of today, is that the
older version weighs ap-
proximately 60 pounds, and
with the newer cars of
today having a thick semi-
steel alloy frame, it's more
difficult for the older cut-
ters to cut through the au-
tomobile frames.
The newer models of
the units' weigh approxi-
mately 30 pounds and can
cut easily into the newer
car frames. Therefore, the
newer models add precious
minutes to that "Golden
Matthews said on aver-
age, within the county, the
"Jaws of Life" are used at
least 20 times per year, and
sometimes, often twice
within a one7shift period.
There have been three traf-
fic crashes between Sept. 8
through Sept. 26, where the
"Jaws of Life" had to be uti-
lized to remove a driver.
On Sept. 8, at 5:14 p.m.
on US-90 near Salt Road, a
1996 Pontiac four-door ran
into a telephone pole and
the driver was injured and
trapped inside. Firefight-
ers utilized the cutters, to
remove the roof of the ve-
hicle and extricate the
driver, who was Life-
Flighted to the hospital for
treatment. Jefferson
County Fire Rescue Chief
Jim Billberry explained
that cutting off the roof
took approximately 30 min-
On Sept. 11 at approxi-
mately 12:24 p.m. at the in-
tersection of US-19 south
and Waukeenah Highway
two vehicles were involved
in a crash. The female

driver of a 2003 Chevrolet
pickup truck was trapped

inside due to severe damage
to the driver side door and
dashboard. Firefighters
had to resort to using the
spreaders to force the door
open of the vehicle in order,
to extract the driver for
transport via ambulance
for treatment.
On Sept. 26, at approxi-
mately 7:42 a.m. on 1-10 at
mile-marker 220, the driver
of a 1999 Toyota four-door
lost control of the vehicle.
The vehicle overturned
ejecting the passenger.
through the windshield and
implanting itself within a
thicket of trees, entrapping
the driver. Firefighters uti-
lized the "Jaw of Life" to
cut the driver side door off
of the vehicle so the injured
driver could be life-flighted
for treatment. Utilizing the
"Jaws of Life" and cutting
off the door, took approxi-
mately 15-20 minutes.
Lloyd Volunteer Chief-
Nic Cooksey reported that
he has used the "Jaws of
Life" on many occasions
and the unit does hasten
the time it takes to remove
entrapped victim from a ve-
Billberry described the
unit: "A spreader consists
of pincer-like, aluminum
ally arms with tips made
of heat-treated steel to pro-
vide maximum strength for
tearing into a vehicle or
building. There are spread-
ers of different sizes, so the
specifications differ as to
how much spreading force
the equipment possesses or
how much space can be
opened up on a vehicle,"
said Billberry.
"Other spreaders can
provide more or less
spreading and pulling
force. A typical power unit
might be a five-horsepower
gasoline engine that oper-
ates at 5,000 pounds per
square inch (PSI), although-
the pressure differs in dif-
ferent power units."
Matthews explained
that though the units vary
in strength and capability,.
the newer models utilize
about 16,000 pounds spread-
ing force; 14,400 pounds
pulling force; and 32 inches
opening distance. He
added that the cutter is uti-
lized for cutting the frames
of automobiles, such as in
the case of the crashes on
Sept. 26 ,and Sept. 8. The
spreaders are used for forc-
ing open two pieces of man-
gled metal, such as in the
case of the Sept. 11 crash.
And the ram, which is used
to lift, was also used in the
Sept. 8 crash to free the
driver from the dashboard.
He gave a brief history
of the "Jaws of Life":
George Hurst of Hurst Per-
formance Products, which
was based in North Car-
olina, invented the first
Hurst rescue tool in the
1960s. This tool was first de-
signed to spread the roll
bars of crashed racecars to
allow access to the drivers.
The first set of tools put in
service was used at the In-
dianapolis 500 and was so
big it had to be carried on
the back of a tow truck. It
was introduced to the
fire/rescue service in 1971.
Hurst.employed an en-
gineer named F.M. (Mike)
Brick to further develop
the tool and make it more
user-friendly. While Hurst
is the Father of the hy-
draulic tool itself, one
could call Brick the Father
of the modern hydraulic
rescue tool. It was through
Brick's work that the tool
was scaled down to the 60-

pound version most are fa-
miliar with.

Brick and Hurst had a
parting of the ways when
Brick wanted to further the
development of the tools
and Hurst did not want to
fund these efforts. Because
of this, Brick set out on his
own and started the
Phoenix Rescue Tool line.
Brick's improvements were
the fixed-blade Continuous
Cut (C/C) cutter, a light
weight (35-pound) combina-
tions "Rescue Tool" with
field-replaceable cutting
blades on the spreader, ex-
posed links to improve
pivot points on the tools
and the use of ethyl glycol
as the primary hydraulic
fluid for the tools. '
Previously rescuers
often used circular saws for
vehicle extrication, but
these suffered from several
drawbacks. Saws can gener-
ate sparks, which could
start a fire, create loud
noise, which could stress
the victim, and are often
slow cutting. Alternately,
rescuers could try to pry
open the vehicle doors
using a crowbar or halligan
bar, but this could compro-
mise the stability of the ve-
hicle, further injure the
victims, or unintentionally
activate vehicle airbags.
By comparison; hy-
draulic spreader-cutters
are quieter, faster, and more
versatile. They can cut,
open, and even lift a car.
"Jaws of Life" is a trade-
marked line of tools origi-
nally developed by Hurst
Performance for use in auto
racing. The "Jaws of Life"
derives its name from one
of the co-inventors Mr. Jack
Allen Watson. When sub-
mitting drawings he would'
often sign them with his
initials J.A.W Over time
the device came to be
known unofficially within
Hurst as Jaws. The name
stuck. The device was later
introduced as the "Jaws of
Life." Some said it was be-
cause they saved drivers
from the jaws of death that
the term jaws of life were
pegged on the unit.
The hydraulic spreader
was originally developed
in 1972 by Hurst and
Zumro ResQTec. Hurst
later developed a cutter
and a hydraulic ram.
In operation, the tips
of the spreader-cutter's
blades are wedged into a
seam or gap, for example,
around a vehicle door, and
the device engaged. The

this process allows a rest
cuer to quickly open a gap

can spread or cut with a
force of several tons with

the tips of the blades

This operation can also
be performed by dedicated
spreading and cutting
tools, which are designed
especially for their own op-
erations and may be re-
quired forsome rescues.
Rams are used-far less
than spreader-cutters in
auto rescues; nonetheless,
they serve an important
purpose. There are many
types and sizes, including
single-piston, dual-piston
and telescopic rams. Sizes
commonly vary from 20" to

Cake Auction Raises $3

Monticello News
Senior Staff Writer
Good-natured political jockey-
ing, combined with scrumptious
.products and a worthy cause,
resulted in the raising of $355 for
the American Kidney Foundation
fund during the cake auction at the
Jefferson County Farm Bureau's
annual meeting and dinner on
Tuesday night, Sept. 23.
Sponsored by the Jefferson
County Farm Bureau Women's
Committee, the cake auction repre-
sents one of the group's main mon-
eymakers for the kidney fund,
which goes to help persons with
kidney disorders.
As local committee head
Dorothy Lewis has explained it in
the past, Farm Bureau women's
committees across the state under-
take different activities the year-

round to raise money for the fund.
"We help children who have a
kidney problem," Lewis said. "We
send them to camps. We.also buy
equipment, such as dialysis
machines for nonprofit hospitals
such as Flagler Hospital in St.
This year, the offerings at the
auction were a chocolate cake, a
hummingbird cake, and a basket of
pears and pear preserves that JC
Farm Bureau President Stephen
Monroe claimed he picked, peeled
and preserved himself with the
help of his son.
Realize also that Republican
candidate Don Curtis and
Democrat candidate Leonard
Bembry, both of who are vying for
the District 10 House of
Representative seat that Rep. Will
Kendrick is vacating because of
term limits, were in the audience.

Leonard Bembry, Democrat candidate for Florida House of
Representatives' District 10 seat, and his wife, Susan, won the chocolate
cake with a bid of $65 at the Farm Bureau's cake auction.

Consequently, a good-natutred
bidding war of sorts erupted
between the two candidates, with
Kendrick putting his paddle in the

mix every so often to spice things
up by raising the ante.

modern versions are wrong completely

In this example we see that Joseph is
called "his father" by the modern ver-
sions. Joseph was not 'the biological
father of Jesus. The deity of Jesus Christ
is called in question by the new versions.
This important verse reaffirms that
Joseph is NOT the father of the Lord
Jesus Christ. Some, however, have
assumed that the reading in modern ver-
sions is acceptable because Mary called
Joseph "thy father" in Luke 2:48. This
assumption is a great error.
Mary was human and sinful and
made a mistake (which Jesus corrected in
verse 49), but the narrator is speaking in

above that are missing from modern ver-
sions. The following 17 verses are absent
in the popular NIV: Matthew 17:21; 18.11;
23:14; Mark 7:16; 9:44,46; 11.26; 15:28; Luke
17:36; 23:17; John 5:4; Acts 8:37; 15:34; 24:7;

Spirit, the water and the blood; and the
three are in agreement.
Being one of, if not the strongest
verse in the entire Bible that affirms the
Trinity, 1 John 5:7 is the subject of attack
in all the modern versions. In addition,
modern versions also corrupt passages
about the Deity of Jesus Christ.
KJV Isa 14:12 How art thou fallen
from heaven, 0 Lucifer, son of the morn-
ing! how art thou cut down to the ground,
which didst weaken the nations!
NIV Isa 14:12 How you have fallen

Notice that in the King James Bible
the word translated "Lucifer" is rendered
"morning star" in the NIV and "Day Star"
in the RSV Now notice that Jesus, not
Satan is called the "morning star," and
"day star" in the following verses:
Rev 22:16 I Jesus have sent mine
angel to testify unto you these things in
the churches. I am the root and the off-
spring of David, and the bright and
morning star.
2 Peter 1:19 We have also a more sure
word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well
that ye take heed, as unto a light that
shineth in a dark place, until the day
dawn, and the day star arise in your
According to Rev. 22:16 and 2 Peter
1:19, the Lord Jesus Christ Himself is the
"morning star" and the "day star." Yet
both the NIV and the RSV attribute the
Lord's names to the devil!
So, "Which version of the Bible
should a Christian use?" The King
James Version. Which version can we
say is without a doubt the word of God
that we can believe and trust? The King
James Version.
As I said, these are only a few of the
many examples of the corruptions
found in.the texts of the modern ver-
sions. These differences are not minor
or insignificant, as some would have you
to believe. They strike at the core of the
very tenets of Christian doctrine.
Would God want us to use a version
of the Bible that contradicts itself or
teaches false doctrine?. I don't think so.
The King James Version is not out-dated
or archaic to the point that you can't
understand it. There are thousands of
people today that still read it and
churches all across the world that still
use it. I want to encourage you to use the
Bible of God's choice the King James

Bible Curriculum In Public Schools

Larry Beger
During the 1960's, a dramatic
change took place in our public
school system. The change was
philosophical, and forever changed
the world view of the educational
message imparted to'our children.
No longer could our children
pledge allegiance to the flag, pray, or
read the Bible. For all intents and
purposes, God and naturally, His
moral absolutes were no longer the
underlying principle in educating
our children.
The system in place now is one
of humanisni, or that man is the
measure of all things. This sounds
harmless enough. In practice what
happened was a loss of discipline,
censorship of historical truths, and
the message of moral relativism to
young, impressionable minds.
One only has to look at the
decline in the public schools, and
the range of problems in the

schools themselves. An objective
evaluator could follow the time line
to where we presently are with drug
usage, sexual promiscuity, and vio-
lence in the schools, and conclude
this great experiment has failed.
It is really quite simple, right
from wrong, and teaching our chil-
dren they are nothing more than
something that evolved out of a
puddle of slime, has caused devas-
tating damage to their self image.
What a departure from the
belief that we are made in the
image of God, and possess great
value as God defines us as a unique
and special creation of his.

ing field ever so slightly There is a

Ag Group Holds It Annual Affair

(Farm Family Recognized; Kendrick Says Farewell)

Monticello News
Senior Staff Writer
Outgoing State Representative
Will Kendrick long recognized
as a friend of Florida's agricultur-
al sector was the guest speaker
at the Jefferson County Farm
Bureau's annual meeting and din-
ner on Tuesday night (Sept. 23), an
occasion that the two-term law-
maker used to deliver his swan
song, i.e., exit ruminations.
"When you come to office, you
have to remember from whence
you came and that one day you're
going to return to that place,"
Kendrick told the audience. "It's
not so much what you do in office
that counts in the end, but that you
return to the same place that you
left from with your character and
integrity intact."
Kendrick reminisced about his
experiences here a little more than
eight years ago, when he was one of
eight candidates seeking the
District 10 legislative seat formerly
occupied at one time or another by
Jefferson County's own Allen
Boyd, now a Congressman, and sis-
ter-in-law, Janegale Boyd.

particular, a man who Kendrick
said "will do what he says he will

Farm Bureau's credo of "neighbor
helping neighbor and friend help-
ing friend".
Kendrick remarked on his
political conversion from
Democrat to Republican during his
term of office, a move that he char-
acterized as not being the best
politically perhaps, but being one
that "was the right thing to do for
the people I represented".
That willingness to put person-
al consideration aside for the sake
of the greater good was a quality
that citizens should look for in
their elected leaders, Kendrick
said. He urged the audience to
scrutinize all the political candi-
dates for public offices presently
and to vote for those individuals
who would best address the issues
and concerns of the voters.
"Elections are not about the

This year's award went to the
Beshears family, consisting of
Cristi and Halsey Beshears and
young daughters Grace, Caroline
and Suzanne.
The Beshears are in the plant
nursery business, growing con-
tainer trees and shrubs. They also
raise cattle and grow pine and
pecan trees on the 1,000-plus-acre
farm that they share with Halsey's
father, Fred Beshears, and brothers
Rob and Thad Beshears.
Typically, the outstanding farm
families from the 24 counties that
participate in the annual event get
recognized in special ceremony in
Tallahassee during the two weeks
of the North Florida Fair, which is
scheduled for Nov. 6-16 this year.
But Harvey changed that policy a

The Jefferson County Farm
Bureau is one of 60 such organiza-
tions in the state that make up the
Florida Farm Bureau Federation
(FFBF), which bills itself as the
state's largest general agricultural
organization with about 140,000
member families and is now cele-
brating its 67" year.
The stated mission of the FFBF
is "to increase the net income of
farmers and ranchers and to
improve the quality of rural life."
The FFBF's stated vision is to
become the nation's most effective,
influential and respected agricul-
tural organization. Namely, it's to
"truly be recognized as Florida's
Voice of Agriculture," which
industry is only second to tourism

Nazarene has deliberately decided
to steer an international course.
'"A century ago, the Nazarenes
were an American family with rel-
atives in other countries," wrote
Stan Ingersol, the denomination's
archivist, in a brief history of the
group. "Today we are an interna-
tional family of districts and con-
gregations planted on each of
Earth's inhabited continents. No
single language, race, or nationali-
ty claims- a majority of our mem-
bers." (
Attesting to the success of the
denomination's international ini-
tiative, the Church of the
Nazarene now includes graduate
theological seminaries in North
America, Central America, and
Asia-Pacific; liberal arts colleges
in Africa, Canada, Korea, and the
United States; nearly 40 theologi-
cal schools worldwide; hospitals in
Swaziland, India, and Papua New
Guinea; radio broadcasts in 30 lan-
guages; and printed materials in
103 languages.
At the Church of the
Nazarene's quadrennial general
assembly in 2001, 42 percent of del-
egates either spoke English as. a
second language or did not speak
the language at all.
The denomination has been
headquartered in Kansas City,
MO, since 1912.
