Monticello Moving

Forward With Sewer

Upgrade Project

Jefferson Journal
Senior Staff Writer
The City Council on
Nov. 3 approved an
amendment that allows
for the start of the next
phase of a major city-
wide sewer upgrade
project that began in
2003 and that will cost
upwards of $5 million
when completed.
As City Clerk Emily
Anderson and Dennis
Dingman, of Summit
Professional Services,
briefly explained it to
the council, the Florida
Department of Environ-
mental Protection
(FDEP) awarded the city
several million dollars
in 2003 for a sewer reha-
replacement project
under the Disadvan-
taged Small Cortmunity
Grant Program, with
the money to be dis-
persed in yearly allot-
ments of $750,000 and
requiring a local match.
A local match re-
quirement means that

the receiving entity
must contribute a cer-
tain portion of the cost
of the project to be eligi-
ble for the state funding.
But in this case, the
FDEP allows the city to
use grant funds from

The Monticello
Local Planning Agency
(MLPA) on Thursday
night, Nov. 13, recom-
mended for approval to
the City Council a set of
proposed development
rules that aim to pro-
mote architecture styles
and streetscapes that
hearken back to an ear-
lier period, when the
town was more pedes-
trian friendly and less
automobile dependent.
Conceived by land-
scape architect Winston
Lee and put into an
adoptable form by a citi-
zens committee over a
period of months, the
proposed Form Based
Code aims to protect and
build on 'the commu-
nity's historic character
and small-town
streetscapes, by pre-
scribing rules that en-
courage and in some
instances require that
future builiy, con .
form to specified archi-
tectural standards.
In brief, the code
calls for buildings to be
set as near the sidewalk
as possible, known as

the build-to con-
cept; encour-
ages facades
that are "aes-
thetically pleas-
ing", timeless,
and in keeping
with the town's
historical char-
acter; relegates
parking to the
rear of building
for the most
part; and en-
courages the
placement of
prominent and
doorways on
structures that
face onto the

The Opera House represents a perfect example of the type of
buildings that the new code would encourage be built on the court-
house circle. The Opera House is set right next to the sidewalk and
features a prominent front doorway, among others of the desired
architectural features that the code promotes.

chitectural fea-
tures, including a
prominent doorway fac-
ing onto the circle.
"The Opera House
sets the precedent," Lee
What the code did
'not do, he emphasized,

was to require that ex-
isting structures be de-
molished, as the rumors
would lead some to be-
lieve. The code also did
not require multiple lev-
els'or additional floors,
and it did not restrict

any development poten-
tial, he said. Nor did it
establish the permitted
uses for a site or man-
date that parking be put
in the rear.

To Look Into Water Park Idea

Senior Staff Writer
The City Council
has now appointed a cit-

view and make a
recommendation on the
prospects for a piece of
school district-owned
property that the city
wants to purchase and

convert into a park.
The 20-acre parcel,
located on the west side
of town off South Water

district officials ever

about the likelihood of
converting the site into

But now it appears that
some city officials may
be entertaining doubts
about the viability of
the site for a water-
theme park, if not the
viability of a water-
themed park in itself or

Resident Says Major Newspapers

Lacked Mention Of Veterans Day

Dear Editor:
Today I visited the traveling Vietnam
Veterans Memorial at Lake Ella in down-
town Tallahassee. I visited once before
when it was here a few years ago and also
saw the original in Washington when I
was temporarily stationed in D.C.
When I was a boy, someone once told
me you never really die if someone
remembers you. It is important for me,
therefore, to remember several of my
friends whose names appear on the wall.
Like many, I stand before the panels
counting rows and lines until I suddenly
find their name. There is a short lived
and strange sense of jubilation, sort of
like spotting a long lost friend in a large
crowd. My custom is like many others.
I rub my fingers over their engraved
name while remembering the young men
I once knew. All of the names of my
friends are located on the East panels,
and two of them are on panel fifty only a

few lines apart, while others are on pan-
els almost within arms reach.
I become apprehensive, however, as I
near the end of my search. I am looking
for my friend Dan Dye on Panel 47 West.
Not only is his name isolated far from the
names of our other friends, but it was Dan
Dye, through some quirk of fate who
arrived at the processing desk just min-
utes before me, who ended up taking the
very job I was originally on orders to fill.
&o why am I sharing my personal
"drivel" with you? I heard on the news
today that several "liberal" major news
papers in America ( like the New York
Times) had NO mention what-so-ever on
their front pages noting today was
Veterans Day. Sad! I hope this isn't
indicative of the kind of "change" we can
now expect in America.

The Things We Miss In Life

Too many times, I feel,
we are caught up in what
we don't have in life, and
miss so much of what we
do have. So many times we
find ourselves thinking of
all the materialistic things
we think we need to be
happy, and we seem to for-
get all the things that are
truly the most important.
In order to be happy in
life, we don't NEED big
houses, new cars, big
screen televisions, and all
the new electronic gadg-
ets. What we NEED is
inner'peace. This can
only be obtained by truly
being happy with (and
within) ourselves and our
I read a short story
once about an elementary
teacher giving her stu-
dents an assignment on
writing down what they
thought the Seven
Wonders of the World
were. The answers var-

ied, from child to child,
but included such famous
sights as .... The Grand
Canyon, Great Wall of
China, Taj Mahal, Empire
State Building, Egypt's
Great Pyramids, Panama
Canal, and St. Peter's
One little girl was hav-
ing great difficulty in writ-
ing her paper, and when
asked by the teacher what
the problem was, she
explained there were just
too many things to choose
from. So the teacher asked
her to read her paper
aloud so that the other stu-
dents could help her. Her
list of "The Seven
Wonders of the World"
read......To see, To hear,
To Touch, To Feel, To
laugh, and To Love.
How often we all seem
to lose sight of this. Life is
not about what we have, it
is about who we are.
The things we over-

look as simple and ordi-
nary, and that we take for
granted, are truly the
most wondrous things in
our lives.
The most precious things
in life cannot be built by
hand or bought by man
At the end of the day,
when we go HOME, and
EAT dinner, and sit on
HEAT or A/C, talk with
our SPOUSE, and play
with our CHILDREN -
those are some of the
things that we seem to
overlook on a daily basis.
So many people in this
world do not have those
luxuries. Why can't we
thank God more often for
what we do have, instead
of blaming Him (or 6th-
ers) for what we don't
Life is short. make it
Until then,...see you
around the town.

Parade Chair
Greetings All! It's time again for the
Christmas Light Parade, presented by
Main Street of Monticello, Inc. The time is
6:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 5. This is our second
year and we'd love to have you light up
your entry and bring it on.
Topping off the parade will be none
other than Santa himself bringing up the
rear. He'll then be available to talk to the
children, and they may even get a picture
with the Jolly old elf. The Christmas Light
Parade will again be announced this year
in the same manner as the Watermelon
Festival Parade.
However, the announcer's stand will
be in front of the Farmer's & Merchants
Bank on East Washington Street. The
parade is being held in conjunction with
Main Street of Monticello's Hometown
Christmas event, complete with arts and
crafts, live entertainment, fun children's
games and tempting foods.
We're looking for all types of "lit up"
entries; churches, civic groups, and bands;
you name it. So use your imaginations and
come out. We'll be winding through some
narrow streets, so this won't be a good
parade for the long entries like the "No

he drove out onto 1-10. The

neers, Inc., recently
approached School Super-
intendent Phil Barker to
determine if a lower pur-
chase price than the one
originally indicated could
be negotiated. .
"Mr. Barker suggested
that we prepare a formal
proposal for the School
Board," Anderson told the
council on Nov. 3, adding
that other issues still ex-
isted that the council
needed to address.
She cited as examples
the lack of access to the
property and the fact that
the wetlands that comprise
a large portion: of the par-
cel can only be developed
for passive uses, such as a
nature trail or for fauna
and flora identification.
She called on the council to
set a meeting to discuss
how the property should be
developed, as well as to con-
sider a reconfiguration of
the parcel (to take in more
upland acreage) and maybe
even to look at properties
other than the one under
"We originally talked
about buying 20 acres," An-
derson said. "But less than
seven acres of that are de-
velopable. And even the
area that is not wetlands is
sloped and very wooded. I'd
like to talk to the commit-
tee about other options and
about thinking outside the
box. If we want a water
park, we need to look north

about $3 million in engi-
neering and other costs,
including the videoing of
the sewer system citywide
to detect and identify all
problem areas. The over-
all project is expected to
last another three or four
years yet.
When completed, the
upgrade will make the
sewer system more effi-
cient and eliminate the
many inflow and infiltra-
tion problems that cur-
rently allow stormwater
runoff to enter the system
and nearly overwhelm the
treatment plant's operat-
ing capacity. The project,
however, does not include
the possible replacement
of the treatment plant it-
self, which officials are
currently considering be-
cause of the facility's bow-
ing walls and other
structural problems. I
The FDEP established
the Disadvantaged Small

of where we're looking to
find a suitable site."
She added that per the
Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection
(FDEP), which awarded the
$200,000 grant, the city
could reconfigure the prop-
erty "within certain limita-
tions". She again reminded
the council that once the
city purchased the prop-
erty, it had three years to
develop it into a park. And
with the current economic
downturn, the prospects of
getting additional funding
from the state to develop
the property were uncer-
tain at best.
Acting Mayor Tom Vo-
gelgesang offered that he
would like to see a commit-
tee formed to further ex-
plore the issue. That
committee, Vogelgesang
said, should represent the
various stakeholders,
which included the city,
county and school district.
Areas to be explored, he
said, should include: what
was the ultimate goal; how
did the community best ac-
complish the goal; and
what were the costs of at-
taining the goal?
"If the idea is a water
park, we have to determine
how this fits into this piece
of property," Vogelgesang
said. "The committee
should include stakehold-
ers from the school district,
the County Commission
and it should look at how
this whole thing should
It was at this point that
John Lilly mentioned that
a committee already ex-
isted. That committee, he'
said, included such mem-
bers as Rev. Carl Hanks,
Jack Carswell, and himself.

Club, Lilly has an abiding
interest in youths and in
the development of this
particular piece of prop-
erty into a water theme
park. His concern, as he
has stated it previously, is
that the city will drag its
feet oh the issue and lose
the opportunity to pur-
chase the property, if not
lose the funding itself.
"I know the water park
is an issue with some,"
Lilly told the council on
Nov. 3, "but let's cross this
hurdle first (meaning the
purchase of the property)."
Carswell likewise en-
couraged the council to
proceed with the purchase
"sooner than later", calling
even the wetlands portion
of the property "a great re-
source for kids".
"I love this piece of
property," Carswell said.
"No one remembers it ever
being logged. It's a repre-
sentative piece of north
Florida. The wetlands are
an asset. You have in the
city a great example of the

Councilwoman Idella Scott
to head the committee.
Scott was to contact county
and school district officials
and get the latter to partic-
ipate in the effort. The
group reportedly met last
week and planned a tour of
the property this week.

Design Code

"The current code
rules on the uses," Lee said.
He talked about the 50-
pe'cent rule that would
come into effect under the
proposed code. The 50-per-
cent rule states that total
improvements to an exist-
ing structure that does not
conform to the code cannot
exceed 50 percent of the
property's assessed value.
If the improvements ex-
ceed 50 percent, either the
improvements can't be
done or the new code kicks
Likewise, the new code
kicks in if an existing non-
conforming structure is de-
stroyed by fire or a storm.
Meaning that any new
structure that goes into the
vacant Site thereafter must
comply with the' 'equife-
ments of the new code.
The idea, as Lee ex-
plained it, is to allow exist-
ing structures to continue
to exist (called grandfa-
thering), but not allow for
their expansion beyond a
certain point, as the ulti-
mate goal of the code is to
do away With nonconform-
ing structures.
"If it's presently a va-
cant lot, the new code
rules," Lee said. "If an ex-
isting building burns wor

He made the point that
although the code aimed to
create architecture that
was visually pleasing, time-
less and in keeping with
the town's historical char-,
acter, it sought to accom-
plish the goal by incentives,
rather than by mandates.
Hence, property owners
who chose to add second
floors, balconies, awnings,
colonnades and others of
the desired architectural
features to their buildings
could be eligible for tax
Lee's presentation
touched on existing vacant
lots within and just outside
the downtown district that
he said could potentially be
converted into public park-
ing lots, as well as other
types of parking that could
be developed in the area.
He made it clear that the
vacant properties that he
proposed as potential park-
ing lots were only intended
to get the dialogue started.
It was possible that other or

Building Permits

For example, the com-
mercial valuation was zero
in August, $1,205,000 in
July, and $376,700 in. June. It
was zero in October 2007.
The valuation of all
other permits a category
.that includes additions, re-
roofs and nonresidential
structures was $191,575
in October, compared with
$282,220 in September. The
figures for this category
were $139,615 in August,
$287,189 in July, $354,145 in
June, and $458,228 in May.
It was $120,500 in October
Building Inspector Wal-
lace "Bubba" Bullock has
said in the past that repairs
and additions tend to go up
during hard economic
times, as people tend to
spruce up existing
dwellings, rather than con-
structing new ones.
The October figures
show that the city issued
seven permits and gener-
ated $861.49 in fees and the
county issued 26 permits
and collected $4,271.33 for a

combined total of $5,133.88.
Of the 33 permits issued, 25
were for repairs and addi-
tions, three for mobile
homes, two for commercial
enterprises, two for miscel-
laneous items such as
sheds, pools, barns and etc.,
and one for residential con-
struction. In October 2007,
the city and county issued
a combined 53 permits and
raised $13,701.39 in per-
Meanwhile, the Jeffer-
son County Planning De-
partment issued 12 permits
and collected $10,163.87 in
October, compared with 11

lected in September and 10

better properties could be
found for such parking lots,
he said. But the idea was to
get the discussion started.
He said the code would
not apply to churches and
other institutional uses in
the business district, such
as was represented by sin-
gle-family dwellings that
still existed in the area or
others that had been con-
verted into commercial op-
erations or government'
offices. An example of the
latter would be the City
Hall building, once a pri-
vate residence.
City officials declared a
six-month moratorium in
the business district earlier
this year to forestall devel-,
opments that did not meet,
the intended requirements,
while the citizens group '
worked on the new code.
That moratorium runs out
in January But City Attor-
ney Bruce Leinback as-
sured the code's

torium could be extended

o Shoe,

By Jed Dillard
Jefferson County
Extension Office
When Big Brown pulled
up lame in the Belmont
Stakes, close up photogra-
phy revealed a loose nail on
the horse's right rear hoof.
Reporters immediately
turned to farriers for an ex-
planation of what hap-
pened and how.
You may not lose the
Triple Crown because of
your horse's shoes, but al-
most every owner depends
on a farrier's skills to main-
tain the soundness and per-
formance of their horses.


Despite this, if you ask
two different horse owners
about choosing a .farrier,
you're likely to get two
long, intense, and totally
different answers.
Sorting through all the
available information and
opinions can seem compli-
cated at best.

asts make better decisions,

Bradley's Country

Store 38h Annual

Fun Day Saturday,

November 22nd

It all began on a cool
November day in 1970.
Frank Bradley had just
completed the construction
of a new meat packing fa-
cility at the little country
store out on Centerville
Road. He celebrated this
milestone by hosting an
open house to allow the
neighbors in surrounding
communities to come by
and see where Bradley's.
Homemade Sausage would
continue, and still contin-
ues, to be produced. The
day was so successful that
he decided to hold another
event the next year, and the
next, and the next....
Since that time
Bradley's Fun Day has
grown into an annual com-
munity event drawing
thousands of visitors from
the tri-state area. PI
The rural heritage is
celebrated through activi-
ties such as the traditional
fall cane grinding (com-
plete with fresh cane juice)
and syrup making. This is
one of the few places where
you can still see the way
syrup was made before the
days of the mass produc-
ers. Visitors can also enjoy
wagon rides around the

pond across from the store,
the great sounds of Coun-
try Connections Band, and
the energetic and always
entertaining clogging of
the Mountain Dew Clog-
Be sure to save time for
some shopping, holiday
and otherwise, at the out-
door' arts and crafts area.
Over 150 vendors of arts,
crafts, and food will assem-
ble to display their wares
and tempt your senses.
Demonstrations of black-
smithing, chair caning, and
weaving will be presented
by talented members of our
community who endeavor
to preserve the heritage of
these art forms.
This year's festivities
will be held on Saturday,
November 22nd from 10 a.m.
until 4 p.m. at Bradley's
Country Store, 10655 Cen-
terville Road, Tallahassee,
FL (12 miles northeast of
Capital Circle). Admission
and parking, as always, are
free. For more information
on the event, call 893-1647.

Look for Post-election

Investment Opportunities
Provided by Robert J. Davison
Over the past few weeks, the country's attention has been riv-
eted on the presidential election. Of course, we didn't exactly
forget that we're in difficult economic times, but we did have
something else on which to concentrate our thoughts and en-
ergies. Now, however, the election is over, and, for many of us,
it's back to focusing on the economy and our investments. By
taking a closer look at the current state of affairs, you may find
that the situation is more promising than you remembered,
back before your thoughts were diverted by polls and prognos-
To begin with, let's look at what's been happening to an eco-
nomit indicator that, while actually quite important, may not
be well known to you or many other investors.
LIBOR (London InterBank Offered Rate) is the interest rate
that banks charge each other for one-month, three-month, six-
month and one-year loans. This rate is initially charged by
London banks, and is then published and used as the bench-
mark for banks rates all over the world. The LIBOR rate can
matter to you in several ways. First, if you have an adjustable-
rate loan, such as a mortgage, and your rate resets, it is usually
based on the LIBOR rate. Even if you have a fixed-rate loan
on, say, a credit card, and you pay it off each month, an in-
creasing LIBOR will affect you by making all types of consumer
and business loans more expensive. This reduces liquidity,
which slows economic growth.
And that's why it's such good news that LIBOR has fallen
steadily for the past few weeks. A lower LIBOR can signifi-
cantly ease the flow of credit and, as you'll recall, the frozen
credit market was one of the chief culprits of the financial
Apart from a falling LIBOR, what other positive developments
have we seen in the financial markets? For one thing, talk
about a coming "depression" has largely faded from the scene.
Furthermore, stock prices, while still volatile, have shown some
upward movement in recent weeks. Before the two-day plunge
of November 5 and 6, the S & P 500 closed 17.7 percent
higher than its low of 848.92, reached on October 27. A 20
percent rise would have technically marked the end of the cur-
rent bear market and the beginning of a new bull market. But
even after the sharp two-day drop, the S & P.500 was up nearly
10 percent from its October 27 low point.
Still, no one can say that the stock market has already hit bot-
tom. With the economy struggling, it's unlikely that corporate
profits will be robust in the months ahead and corporate
profits are a key driver of stock prices.
But there may be a bright side to this picture: Based on tradi-
tional measures of value, stocks are now relatively inexpen-
sive. Much of the poor economic news may already be reflected
in current stock prices, so, based on today's price levels, high-
quality stocks could well provide attractive returns in the long
run. Over the short term, though, be prepared for continued
volatility, possibly including large day-to-day price drops.
These are challenging times for investors, but good opportu-
nities are out there. To take advantage of them, you need
courage, discipline and patience. Remember, tough times don't
last but smart investors do.

New York Giants held
off the Philadelphia Eagles,
36-31, in typically hostile
Lincoln Financial Field,
Nov. 9. The Giants' fourth
victory in a row improved
their record 8-1, including
3-0 in division games. The
Giants now lead the divi-
sion race by two games over
the Washington Redskins
and three over the Dallas
Cowboys and the Eagles,
who dropped to 0-3 in games
against NFC East foes..
The Giants have now
won 13 of their last 14 road
games dating back to last
season;, including the play-
offs. They dominated the
game statistically, out gain-
ing the Eagles, 401-300, in-
cluding 219-106 on the
ground, and owning size-
able advantages in first
downs (26-17) and time of
possession (39:10-20:50).
,The game's key mo-
ments were three replay
challenges, all of which
went the Giants' way. and
Chase Blackburn's tackle
of Brian Westbrook on
fourth-and-one with 1:47 re-
maining that effectively
clinched the game.
Eli Manning threw
touchdown passes to
Plaxico Burress and Kevin
Boss. Brandon Jacobs ran
for two more scores and
John Carney kicked field
goals of 27, 26 and 28. yards

travel just 12 yards for the
score after Patterson inter-
cepttd Manning's second
pass. on the game's third
snap. Manning's throw hit
Patterson's hands and hel-
met before the defender se-
cured it and ran 21 yards to
the nine, where he was
tackled by Jacobs. The Ea-
gles scored two plays later.
The Eagles took a 7-0
lead just 1:42 into the game
when rookie wide receiver
Jackson scored on a 10-yard
run. Jackson lined up as a
quarterback in the shotgun.

and sprinted around right
end. From the three-yard
line. he dove and stretched
his arms over the goal line
just inside the pylon.
Bradshaw forced a
Quintin Demps fumble that
was recovered by Black-
burn and returned 12 yards
to the Philadelphia 13-yard
line. But after two runs
gained four yards, Madison
Hedgecock couldn't secure
Manning's third-down pass
and Carney came on to kick
the field goal with 6:45 re-
maining in the first quarter.
A Giants takeaway on
the ensuing kickoff led to
Carney's 27-yard field goal
and a 107 Giants lead.
The score capped the
team's first 80-yard drive.
which immediately fol-
lowed a Philadelphia touch-
down. The big play on the
drive was a 22-yard pass to
Boss on third-and-one.
which brought the ball to
the Eagles' 38-yard line.
Two plays later, Brandon
Jacobs ran through the left
side for 20 yards. On the
third snap after the run.
Burress scored.
Manning's 17-yard
touchdown pass to Burress
on a third-and-nine play
tied the score at 7-7 with 8:21

ter. Burress lined up on the
left side. found an opening
in the end zone between
safeties Mikell and Brian
Dawkins and went low to
the ground to secure the
ball two yards deep in the
end zone. It was his only
catch of the game.

cessfully concluded the Gi-

ning passes of 2u. 10 and 10
yards to Toome;r the latter

Philadelphia took the

o Oget1

By Doug Peters
L'S N'ay A.DJ.3
This vwe.k the Tallahassee
area was privileged to view
what most of us v ill1 never see
in person. It is a traveling
memorial to some of the men
and women who gave their
lives for their coMuntIr.
It is a long black wall with a
list of more than 51.i ,U(I names
carved in white letters. Each
name is. not was, somlleon(e to
whom %we owe a debt of grati-
tude for their sacrifice.
I was deeply touched %w ith a
sense of awe and respect for
these individuals who are now
just a list of names on the wall.
The experience was a bit more
emotional than I had thought it
would be.
This is the Vietnam War
Memorial. It is a roster of all
who died while in service in
the conflict.

These are not the special
forces' wannabes, nor the swift
bot heroes' we know ot. These
are those %% ho served and gave
theur lives while doing so The
overwhelming majority: like
myself, made it back with Ifew,
L' an., physical scars. There
are many. many. ex-servicemen
and women walking right
beside you every day who
served and were injured, some
seriously, and we don't even
know it.
There are also hundred's
upon hundred's who have since
succumbed to injuries received
from the conflict. Not only from
wounds. but. many have suf
feared the devastating effects of
things such as Agent Orange.
These names will not be includ-
ed on this wall. only in the
memory of friends and family
These men and %women did
not want to die on foreign soil.

They had hopes and
(dreams of living here, in
America, with the free-
donm to choose their own
destiny. They wanted to
live free. as much as fate
would allow. Free to
choose who, or if. they
married. where they
lived., where the\ worked,
how they lived, where
they traveled. what they
did with their own earn-
ings, w ho and where they
worshipped and to be able
to raise their families in a
safe, moral society
I have been to many
cemeteries. National,
C ivil War, large and small
city cemeteries, churches
of all denominations and
private. family owned
cemeteries, even lone
graves beside the road.
When I visit these ceme-

*" teries I have always taken
notice of the many indi-
viduals who served our"
country. Air Force, Army,
Coast Guard. Marines
and Navy
Each time I come upon
a person who was killed
in action, or died while
serving, I have a feeling of
sadness come over me. A
sadness that this person
had to die to make men
free and especially that
there are so many who
don't appreciate, nor care,
that they gave their life's
blood for them to live.
Most of the time. I say a
silent prayer for the fall-
The Vietnam Veteran
has a much deeper stir-
ring in my heart due to
the fact that I. too. am one
of the privileged

Americans that served his
country with pride in this time.
Like most of us who served. I
did so to give us the continued
right to choose as free
All these men and women
who served, by volunteering, or
by the draft, gave some, and for
their time in service were will-
ing to give all they had. All they
had was on the line for YOU
and for all Americans. Over the
years, hundreds of thousands
have literally given their all for
our freedoms.
While there at this display. I
watched the people walking,
jogging, playing and enjoying a
picnic with family and friends
in the park. There were the
young and the old, men and
women, people of all races: peo-
ple of several nationalities,
there were children and adults.
I couldn't help but wonder

how many appr
knew, and ca
meaning of.this
names wrTitten i
I know-whai
and as long as G

nor will I fail to-

"In Flanders Fields"
remains one of the most
memorable war poems ever
It is a lasting legacy of
the terrible battle in the
Ypres salient in the spring of
1915. Here is the story of the
making of that poem:
The poem was written by
McCrae. who was a doctor
and surgeon attached to the
1st Field Artillery Brigade in
the South African War.
He had seen and heard
enough pain and suffering to
last a lifetime. The poem was
written during wartime
while McCrae was looking

over the grave of a young
friend and former student,
Lieutenant Alexis Helmer, of
McCrae jotted down these
15 lines in his notepad. the
words %were an exact descrip-
tion of the scene in front of
him at that time. The words
were written as a way to vent
his anguish.
In disgust he tossed the
poem. only to have it
retrieved by a fellow officer
who sent McCrae's words to a
newspaper in England. .
The Spectator, in London,
rejected it, but Punch pub-
lished it on December 8, 1915.

The Legion of Honor was cre-
ated by Napoleon in 1802 to
acknowledge services rendered to
France by persons of great merit.
"The French people will

your devotion to the great cause
of freedom," says Pierre Vimont,

pleasure for me to convey to you
my sincere and warm congratula-
"I was a 111 Lt. Artilleryman

can't seem to recall the hours,"
Pierson jokes.
