Whose Inherited Budget Deficit Is It Really?

Dear Editor:
President Obama inherited a $1.3
trillion Budget Deficit, and predicts a
$1.75 trillion Budget Deficit this year.
Continually blaming George Bush is
very disingenuous, because .presi-
dents don't set budgets. They only pro-
pose budgets. It is congress that writes
and approves the actual budget.
President Obama (formerly Sen.
Obama) and his Democratic congres-
sional buddies have been the majority
party in both houses of congress since

Deficit, which he is inheriting, was, in
fact, his own handiwork, and the
Democratic majority in congress.

the proposed Monticello
Pines subdivision would be
restricted to single-family
dwellings. Meaning that
multifamily units and
assisted living facilities -
a point of concern to some
were being dropped from
the development.
R bert George, the
city's consultant engineer,
explained that PUDs
allowed developers to
establish their own guide-
lines, densities and other
development standards for
projects, at the same that
they provided government
officials with a conceptual
framework for how a par-
ticular development would
proceed. Developers, how-
ever, still -had to present
detailed plans for each
phase of the development,
and these individual plans
had to conform to the over-
all concept, he said.
He reiterated that
Sierra Properties had
agreed to limit the develop-
ment to 450 units maxi-
mum, a density level that
he 'said could be greatly
exceeded under the present
R-i zoning. Nor would com-
mercial use be allowed on,
'the. property, absent a
Comprehensive Plan
amendment that the state
would have to approve, he
said. .
S Developer -Clay
Thompson made it point to
state that.Sierra Properties
was a developer of high-
quality mix-use projects'
,across the country and that
- its plan here was to build
an imaginative and mno-
-vated community that was
environmentally green.
pedestrian friendly and in
keeping with the best prac-
tices of NeWh Urbanism. a
'movement that advocates a
return .to small-town
He offered that the
development would gener-'
ate millions in property'
taxes and in water-and-
server fees and create per-
manent jobs. Questioned
by Councilwoman Linda
Butler about what kinds of
jobs the" development,
would create specifically,U
Thompson's response was
that he had to imagine that
the development would cre-
ate jobs, but he hadn't real-
ly thought it through, how-
Kate Calvin, a Spring
Hollow Road resident, was
the OMEN spokesperson.
Calvin argued that the PUD
zoning was a bad idea and
that notwithstanding the
various parties' assertions
and assurances that the
PUDs rules would govern
in perpetuity, no rules ever
governed forever, and once
in place, the rules could be
changed without benefit of
public hearings.
"We have seen PUDs go
in before and they can
change in .nature over
time," Calvin said. "We
fear for the character of
our area."
She disputed represen-
tations that'the PUD zoning
had been suggested only
-after the developer had
exhausted the possibility of

getting a variance under
the current zoning, saying
that the PUD had been
raised as early as the
Comprehensive. Plan
amendment that the devel-
oper had accomplished
about three years ago.
Calvin questioned the
validity of the developer's
traffic study and environ-
mental assessment, charg-
ing that the two were essen-
tially, bias and based on
erroneous or incomplete
information:. She raised
again the issue of Sierra
Properties' violations of
the Clean Water Act rela-
tive to a large-scale com-
* mercial development in
Pasco County.
"We feel that not allthe
stbry is being told," Calvin
Sandra Gavins, a
Jefferson County native
anrd present-day
Tallahassee resident who is
familiar with SouthWood
both as a longtime resident
and a house builder during
its development, addressed
the council about the likely
traffic situation here .once
the Monticello Pines devel-.
opment began construc-
'tion. Her first point was
- that, the traffic study did
not give a full or. accurate
-.picture of' the traffic that
"the development Would
generate. Her second was
that the traffic from the
various homebuilders dur,
ing the construction phas-
es was likely to be problem-
atic, and that the residen-
tial traffic once the devel-
opment was in place would
tax the capacity of nearby
city streets.
"My goal is to educate
you and lend you my expe-
rience as a. PUD home
builder:" Gay ins said. "The
.u-affic problems willbe.big-
getr than yoit see in the
study You'll have growing
pains. I'm concerned about
the impact of the heavy
construction traffic."
Pat Miller, 'another
Spring Hollow Road resi-'
dent, addressed the council
,:next, speaking about a
nearby subdivision that'
had .;been largely aban-
doned after the construc-
tiori of a couple of houses.'
She,-touched also on the
general oversupply of
houses, the inadequacies of
some present-day govern-
ment services, and the need
for intergovernmental
cooperation and coordina-
tion between the city and
"All this is based on
speculation," Miller said of
the proposed development.
"We're riot comfortable
with your framework or
your 'speculation. We're
entitled as citizens to par-
ticipate in decisions'
regarding our neighbor-
hood. By voting for the
PUD, you will be locking us
'out of any future decisions
on phases 1, 2 and 3 of the
"Do the right thing,"
Miller concluded her
presentation, repeating
the mantra-like phrase
three times.
Councilman John

Jones alone responded to
the residents, giving a
long and impassioned
speech that touched on
the scrutiny that the
-Monticello Local
. Planning Agency (MLPA)
had given the project, the
inevitability of change,
the fleeting nature of
businesses in Monticello
historically, the town's
propensity to always be a
place of' small shops and
bed-and-breakfasts inns,
and the NIMBY (not in
my backyard) mentality
that often kept new proj-
ects from coming into the
community, among other
"I know that the
MLPA didn't let the devel-
oper get away with any-
thing,".Jones said., "The'
MLPA didn't let anything
slip by and it (the develop-
ment) is, in accordance
with the rules. Any future
action will have to come
before the City Council.
and I have confidence
that the developer will do
what he says he will do...
This world changes.
Monticello's going 'to
change. But ecotourism is
\all it's evergoing to be. In
my 55 years here I've seen
businesses come and go,
come and go.- But it's
going to change. It won't
stay the same. Everybody
has the NIMBy effect.
They complain about the,
school system, but what
are we doing to help the
system. If you're not part
of the solution, you're
part of the problem."
Jones stopped him-
self abruptly, shaking his
head and: throwing his
hands up in 'apparent

City Clerk Emily
Anderson offered that
the ordinance wasn't as
onerous as some per-
ceived it to be. The
intent was actually to
protect property values
and give property own-
ers more flexibility, she
said. The intent was
also to alleviate some of
the downtown parking
problems by providing
for public parking in
specified locations near
the area, she said.
Wirick countered
that public parking was
fine, if the intent was
to convert the dowri-.
town into a froufrou
district of chic and

'type,of business, which
dealt with heavy and
utilitarian products,
people required nearby
parking or they would
go elsewhere, he said.

He didn't have a

not achieve the desired
end with incentives
rather than regula-
tions, which once on
the books were, almost
impossible to remove?
'EWe have enough
restrictions and hoops
to jump through as it
is," Wirick said. "It
seems that there's a
vision from certain
people to make this
town what they want
and they're not even
from here. I don't have
a problem with the
intent of the ordinance.
But it's hard when
someone's telling you

In fact, according to Florida law, non-med-

Retirees Must Make (At Least)

Five Key Financial Decisions

Provided by Robert J. Davison
When you're working, you have a financial strategy
that is largely based on one goal: saving money for a
comfortable retirement. You'll likely have to make
many adjustments over several decades to ensure that
you stay on track saving' and iivestihg But onc o'bu'
retire, a new goal arises investing -98'b canrtemain"
retired. To help yourself achieve this goal, you will
need to make a number of investment decisions.
Which of these decisions are most important? Here are
five to consider.
How much will you spend each year? Beforeiyou can
pursue an appropriate investment strategy, you'll need
to know about how much you'll spend each year. Es-
timate your costs for housing, food, travel, enter-
tainment, insurance, gifts- everything. Keep-in
mind that your expenses will likely change annually,
especially for items such as health care. Don't forget
about inflation, which will likely cause your expenses
to increase over the years.
How should you balance your investment portfolio.
to provide sufficient income and growth opportuni-
ties? Clearly, you'll need your investments to provide
a source of income during your retirement years. At
the same time, you will need some growth potential
to overcome the effects of inflation, which can erode
your purchasing power. Consequently, you will need
a mix of income- and growth-oriented investments,
with the proportions depending on your risk toler-
ance and your lifestyle.
How much should you withdraw each year from your
investment portfolio? The answer depends on several
factors, including your retirement lifestyle, the size
and performance of your investment portfolio, infla-
tion, your estimated life expectancy and the size .of
the estate you'd like to leave. This decision is im-
portant, because the amount you withdraw each year
will directly affect how long your money lasts.
From which accounts should you begin taking with-
drawals? You may have built three different types of
accounts: taxable, tax-deferred and tax-free. It may
be a good idea to take withdrawals from your taxable
accounts first, thereby allowing your tax-deferred ac-
counts, such as your Traditional IRA and your
401(k), more time to compound and potentially in-
crease in value. If you have a tax-free account, such
as a Roth IRA,. save it for last to maximize the com-
pounding on money on which you will never pay
taxes. (Roth IRA earnings grow tax-free if you've
had your account at least five years and you don't
begin taking withdrawals until you're at least 59-1/2.)
That said, this is just a rule of thumb.
* When should you take Social Security? You can
begin taking Social Security as early as age 62, but
your monthly checks will be considerably larger, if
you wait until your "normal" retirement age, which
is likely 65 or 66. But if you need the money, you
may be better off by taking Social Security at 62 and
giving your tax-deferred accounts more time to po-
tentially grow.
As you can see, you'll need a lot of expertise to suc-
cessfully manage your financial and investment situa-
tions during retirement. If you don't already work with
a financial advisor and a tax professional, now would be
a good time to start. Once you've got your financial
strategy in place, you'll be better prepared to enjoy an
active, fulfilling retirement.

ly to work just 40 days at
his or her jobs in order
to earn enough money
to purchase groceries
for the family for the

that food is really an
inexpensive item for
Americans, compared to
other things that fami-
lies must purchase.
Tax Freedom Day is

WILD Grant Benefits

Area Libraries
The State Library and Archives of Florida has
awarded a grant of $46,305 to Wilderness Coast
Public Libraries, (WILD) to fund a technology proj-
ect for Franklin, Jefferson, and Wakulla County
public libraries.
WILD is a library cooperative that joins the
Franklin, Jefferson, and Wakulla public libraries by
inter-local agreement for cost effective shared public
library services.
The grant was provided though the Library
Services and Technology Act (LSAT), which focuses
on information, access through technology. As a
result of this grant, all three county libraries now
have a SMART Board, which is a whiteboard that
connects to a computer and projector and becomes a
:touch sensitive screen.
This technology is a big help to teaching classes.
A recorder feature simultaneously records voice
and screen images. These become narrated videos
on DVDs 'that can by used by library patrons who
were unable to attend the classes at the scheduled
ties. Sytems Librarian Paul Clark is managing the

Native Life In The 1700s

Monticello News
Staff Writer
The Seminole tribe,
was actually com-
prised of, several for-
eign tribes. The two
largest elements of the
Seminole tribe was the
Miccosukees and the
Red Stick Creeks, both
members of the loosely
organized Creek con-
The Red Sticks
arrived in Florida after
1814 and altered the
makeup of the
Seminoles. Before the
arrival of the red
Sticks, the
Miccosukees and a
smaller group known
as the Tallahassees,
inhabited the region
between the Suwannee
and Apalachicola
Rivers for nearly half a
The people who.
became the
Miccosukee tribe were
originally .the Oconee
people from the area
around the Oconee
River in Georgia. The
Oconee tribe moved to
the Lower Creek land
around 1715 and into
Florida in 1760,. which
was around the same
time the, Spanish were
withdrawing from,
Florida. The- Spanish
had turned; over the
land of Flowers to the
English, leaving the
hativ6s to deal with the
incoming British.
Some of the

Oconee tribe settled
into present day
Jefferson and Leon
county with their prin-
cipal town along Lake
Unlike most of the
Creeks, who spoke
Muscogee, the
Miccosukees spoke the
language of the
Hitchiti. They consid-
ered themselves
Creeks, attended the
confederation coun-
cils, and gave the
Creek's head chief the
modest allegiance
required, of member
tribes. The entire tribe
numbered fewer than
2,000 while those living
in Jefferson County
only numbered a few:
Just as the Creeks
did, the Miccosukees
depended on the trade
that had been estab-
lished with the British
companies. When the
British acquired the
territory, the colonial
governors undertook
an Indian policy, which
proved to be more suc-
cessful than the
Spanish trade policies.
Instead of attempting
to convert the natives
to Christianity, the
British found it more
useful to negotiate:
with them and to estab-
lish a trade system.
Among the several
trading companies,
. which were permitted
to operate in the area,
Panton, Leslie and

Company was deemed
the most important in
the area. The company
was first established
on the East coast, it
gradually moved into
West Florida with
stores at St. Marks and
Pensacola. The compa-
ny had close ties to
Alexander McGilliv-
ray, the educated half
Scot leader of the
Upper Creeks.
It was the connec-
tion with McGillivray
that gave Panton,
Leslie and Company a
virtual market of the
Creek trade. When the
British withdrew from
Florida and the
Spanish regained title
in the early 1780's, the
company was, allowed
. to continue its trade
with the Creeks.
The profitable
Indian, trade attracted
competition from a sol-
dier-of-fortune named
William Augustus
Bowles along, with a
group of investors.
Bowles was a/
.Maryland loyalist who
had fought with the
British at Pensacola
where he married into,
a Lower Creek tribe.
Bowles was known for
using his charm and
wit to win the ,alle-
giance of many Lower
Creeks and Seminoles.
The natives were
willing to deal with
Bowles because they
had grown tired of
*McGillivray's leader-

ship an^l Panton's high
prices. Bowles made
arrangements for sup-
plies and trade goods
from his British con-
tacts and proclaimed
himself Director-
General of the new
State of Muscogee.
He soon took over
Panton's store at the
mouth of the
* Ochlocknee River as a
new base of opera-
tions. However,.- the
Spanish government
forced him to give up
and invited him to New
Orleans to negotiate a
settlement there. The
trip turned out to be a
ruse and Bowles ended
up becoming a Spanish
prisoner in the
Philippine Islands.
Bowles would even-
tually escape' from
prison and outfitted a
vessel, setting sail for
M u sc o gee .
Unfortunately, he ship-
wrecked at St. George
Island. Regardless, he
made his, way back to
the mainland .and man-
aged to regain the faith
of- his old Indian fol-
lowers. With a price on
his head from the.
Spanish, a watch main-
tained by the,U. S. and,
the mixed feelings of
the British, Bowles set,
out 'to reopen trade
between the Sate of
Muscogee and any
firms who were willing
to trade with them. He
made his headquarters
at Miccosukee, which
was considered one of
the most important
Seminole towns. This
is where the influential
chief, Kinachee,
offered Bowles the

greatest protection.
With a strong base
and a need for a port
from which to trade,
Bowles gathered a
force of several hun-
dred Indian warriors
and captured Panton's
store as well as the
warehouses at St.
Marks. He also man-
aged to lay siege to the
Spanish Fort posi-
tioned 31 miles south
Miccosukee. After six
weeks of siege war-
fare, the fort was sur-
rendered to Bowles and
his Seminole allies. A
Spanish counterattack
soon forced him to
retreat from St. Marks,
but Bowles still
remained out of reach
as he made his way
back to the Miccosukee.
At a standoff, at St.
Marks, Bowles made
plans for the future of
his nation. He estab-
lished a small navy,
which plundered sever-
al Spanish vessels and
used the booty cap-
-tured to keep his
'Indian allies well-sup-
plied. He welcomed.
runway' slaves from
nearby Georgia settle-
ments, which resulted
'in' the Miccosukhee
becoming a nmulti-
racial settlement.
Bowles would even-
tually write out a con-
stitution, plan for a
university, aid try to
make. an alliance with
Britain. He also invit-
ed -white settlers to
Muscogee. He believed
his- Indian friends
would have to contin-
ue adapting to the
white man's way of

life as they were
already doing. If
Bowles were to have
his way, it is recorded,
Miccosukee would
have become the cen-
ter of a "distinguished
and respectable
However, this was
not to be. Bowles tiny
naval forces. were driv-
en off the seas. Spain,
the United States, and
several other Indian
groups captured
Bowles while he was
attending an 1803
meeting under a flag of
truce. He was sent to
Morro Caste near
Havana where he died
' in 1805. The
Miccosukee nation
remained his friend
until the end, and
Bowles town on Lake
Miccosukee was the
largest of its kind.
The unstable bor-
der situation between
Spanish Florida and
Georgia continued as
Spanish power
declined and the
SUnited States grew in
the early 19th century
The continuing
conflict between fron-
tier settlers and the
Creeks in Alabama led
to, the- Battle of'

which Andrew
Jackson along with his
Tennessee militia
destroyed the strength
of the Red Stick
Creeks. The survivors
migrated to Florida
where they joined the
Mliccosukee, the
Tallahassees, and
other bands, which
comprised the rising
Seminole nation.
