Clerk of Court Kirk Reams' de-
cision to hire an Information Tech-
hology (IT) person for his office
stirred no little debate at the
County Commission meeting on
Tuesday morning, Dec.1.
In the end, it turned out that
the commission really had no say in
the matter, which prompted one of-
ficial to ask why the board had even
taken up the matter in the first
place. But that revelation came only
after much discussion and after six
citizens had registered their con-
cerns.about the proposed action.
IT, as defined by the Informa-
tion Technology. Association of
America (ITAA), involves the


"study design, development, imple-
mentation, and support or manage-
ment of computer-based
information systems, particularly
software applications and com-
puter hardware."
Reams, in both his press re-
lease and statements to the commis-
sion, emphasized that one of his
chief goals since coming to office
has been to save taxpayers' dollars
by streamlining processes and mak-
ing systems more efficient and cost
"The Florida Constitution
states that 'a public office is a public
trust' and I take serving as the tax-
payers' watchdog very seriously,"
Reams stated in his press release.

Your Hostility
I was talking to a
teenager the other day,
and she was telling me
how when she gets in
trouble, at home, she
gets slapped.
I was horrified. -I
know this seems to be
the practice of many
households, but yet it
still sickens me when I
think of a child being
slapped in anger and
what that does to
his/her self-esteem and
Discipline is totally
necessary in raising
children. I was spanked,
and my children were
spanked, But slapping a
child/teenager in anger
is not discipline. It is act-
ing out in anger; one of
the things that we teach
our children NOT to do.
We teach our chil-
dren, and/or take them
to church and teach
them, to act like Jesus,
think like Jesus, treat
others as Jesus would
treat them, not to pick
on those less fortunate,
and not to pick on those
,.that are younger and
smaller than them. Then
some of those same chil-
dren/teenagers go home
just to be slapped, in
anger, because they are
younger (or slammed up
against walls, or pushed
around by their fathers.)
When a woman is
continually slapped or
pushed around by her
husband, we call it phys-
ical abuse. When a 16
year-old hits and pushes
an eight year-old

around, he is called a
bully When one teenag-
er hits another teenager
in school, he can be sus-
pended for fighting.
Why is it viewed as
"different" when a par-
ent slaps a
child/teenager in anger?
When a child is
spanked for doing some-
thing wrong it is a
thought out process and
an explanation usually
accompanies the spank-
ing. A slap in the face is
just that a slap in the
face out of anger.
If a teenager lives
with that, they eventual-
ly don't want to go home,
for home is no longer

their safe haven. They
feel as if they are
unloved and/or unwor-
thy after all, isn't a
mother's and father's
love supposed to be the
strongest? If their par-
ents can't even show
unconditional love, then
why should they expect
it from.anyone else?
When I was a child
on through my teenage
years, a scroll hung in
my bedroom (on my
closet door) with a nice
saying on it. I used to lie
in bed and read that
scroll many a night as I
fell asleep. The older I
got; the more I under-
stood what it meant.

Jim row At The Library

I remember once
when my wife and I visit-
ed a friendly town in
North' Central Florida
(the town I will not men-
tion). We decided to visit
the public library of that
County I love to visit
libraries, so does my
wife who is a fine biblio-
phile. As I walked into
this medium-sized
library I looked around
for humanities and liter-
ary texts, then I went
over the history collec-
tion, while my 'wife
looked through the gar-
dening and horticulture
books. Just then one of
the librarians, a middle-
aged. woman, walked
passed me rolling a cart
of books to shelf.
"Excuse me Ma'am,"
trying to catch her atten-
"Yes, may I help
you?," she questioned in
a friendly manner.
"Could you tell me
where Black History
books are located?, I
"I don't see them
anywhere in the 900s," I
reiterated, "knowing
that was the place for
"Oh, son. Black his-
tory, literature, psycholo-
gy, sociology, etc. are
over there," pointing a

cold finger at an extreme
dark corner of the
.. "Thank you," I
responded with a shud-
der and disbelief.
It was an example of
Jim Crow laws applied to
the library I am a profes-
sional librarian who
integrates things in the
library: one catalog, one
collection, one mission.
Of course, there is diver-
sity in all of this, but
there is justice and dig-
nity for every citizen
who visits the public
library regardless of
race or ethnicity. We
might segregate collec-
tions in terms of age
groups and even lan-
guage (our Spanish lan-
guage collection). But we
don't aallv Jim Crow
laws to books written by
or for our Black commu-
nity. Everything is inte-
grated in the 300s, 500s,
700s, and 900s. We are
passed that age where
the Black man had to use
a Black bathroom, eat in
a Black restaurant, take
the back section of the
bus reserved for Blacks
or simply die on a Black
bed somewhere in a sec-
tion of an obscure hospi-
tal. Or, even, just getting
a beating for crossing
the "white line."

Still, some people
are left in their igno-
rance and superstition
of what democracy and
justice is all about. And
yes, it is a good thing
that libraries are a dem-
ocratic institution
where every member of
the community is well-
represented in the col-
lection and resources.
You will not find the his-
tory of Buffalo soldiers
in a dark corner without
light. No, they will be
represented in our
libraries in the 970s
where American history
and culture is located.
You will not find WE.B.
du Bois or Frederick
Douglas or Richard
Wright in a dark corner
without light. No, they
will be represented in
the great annals of
American literary histo-
ry in our libraries. You
will not find the story of
Booker T. Washington in
a dark corner without
light. No, he will be rep-
resented in the annals of
American education. No
Jim Crow laws here;
librarianship will not
tolerate this. It is a good
thing that our God-fear-
ing community here in
Jefferson County has
crossed over into the 21"l

Message From

Santa Claus

By Judy Arline Pucket
If it were in my
power, I would bring
peace and love to this
world of ours. But I
don't have magic
enough. I can cross the
sky, and pass by the
stars. But I can't seem to
stop any of the hatred's
wars. I see children on
the streets, with no hope
left in their eyes.

So many homeless
people with nowhere to
sleep. And my heart
cries. I can't give the
things they need, oh but
God, I would try I'm
only a fantasy that once
took wings to fly
Some are deceived
by the gifts that money
can buy But those who
truly believe see the gift
with the heart, not with


the eye. I sometimes stop
and go to my knees and
pause, and I too, always
pray that we will find an
end to wars, and live in
peace one day.
For all those who
believe in me, I will con-.
tinue my cause. Across
the stars, over the wars,'
on Christmas Eve, for
the hearts that still
believe, in Santa Claus.

Take a moment to listen today
To what your children are trying

Listen today whatever you do

to you.
Listen to their problems, listen
Sfor their needs.
Praise their smallest triumphs,
Praise their smallest deeds;
Tolerate their chatter, amplify
their laughter.
Find out what's the
matter; find
S out what they're after.
Tell them that you love
every single night,
Though there be need to
S scold

Y them, be sure you hol

Tell them "Everything's a
and tomorrow's looking brig:
Take a moment to listen tod
To what your children are try
Sto say;
Listen today, listen today what-
ever you do,
And they will come back to lis-
ten to you.

In his comments to
the commission, Reams
noted a "glaring need" for
the -county to have its
own IT department.
"Most of the criti-
cism we get is that our
webpage is not updated
and that we don't have a
countrywide email sys-
tem," Reams said.
His office currently
was paying $12,000 annu-
ally for IT services and
other operations were
paying like amounts, he
said. In other counties,
in-house IT services were
part of the regular mix,
he said. Having an IT per-
son in-house would allow
for a centralized and
coordinated system that
could serve the other con-
stitutional offices and
county departments, he
said. Moreover, it could
all be done without
expending taxpayers'
Reams said he had
identified several rev-
enues streams coming
through his office that
stemmed from recording
and other user fees,
which monies could be,
used to pay the IT techni-
cian's $36,000 annual
"By using the record-
ing fees that are available
to run this department,
county taxpayers' dollars
will no longer be used to
fund these. functions,
freeing up these funds for
the departments to use in
other areas or in leaner
times," Reams said.
S'Basically we're
behind the times in this
regard," he added, noting
that other clerks of court
had IT personnel on their
Reams identified his
choice for the position as
well-qualified IT person
currently working in
Suwannee County and
who desires to return to
this area.
Registering opposi-
tion to the decision were
Ashley and Richard Hotz,
owners of Country Mile
Computers, a local com-
pany that has been serv-
icing the computer needs
of the area and county
offices since 1997. Also
expressing concern were
several supporters of the
company, as well as being
general proponents of
economic development
and the shop-at-home
In her presentation
to the commission,
Ashley Hotz noted that in
the last five years, the
county had paid an aver-
age of $5,846.25 annually
to Country Mile
Computers for labor.
"Our accounting pro-
gram shows that all
invoices submitted to the
county for computers,
printers, switches, net-
working equipment,
accessories and software
over a five years and 11
months period averaged
only $9,524.25 annually
for (about seven) county
departments," she said.
"If you add annual labor
costs to annual equip-
ment and software
charges, the total average
annual cost to the county
is $15,370.50 for every-
thing for both equip-
ment and labor."
She made the point
that the new technician's,

Get it fast


* $36,000 salary would be
more than six times the
labor fees that her compa-
ny charged all county
offices for a year.
She questioned
where the money would
come from to pay for the
technician's salary as the
research that she had
done indicated that state
statute prevented the
funding that Reams had
identified from being
used for salaries.
Richard Hotz in his
presentation noted his
35+ years of experience
in the field of computers,
including 12 years as a
field engineer for a large
corporation. Throughout
their company's 13 years
of service to the county it
had been their abiding
aim to.keep costs down,
and as a consequence,
they had saved the coun-
ty tens of thousands of
dollars over the 13 years,
he said.
"Since we've been in
business we've seen four
other computer compa-
nies start and fail here,"
Richard Hotz said. "We
have not made a fortune,
but have earned an hon-
est living. But in this
economy, like so many
other businesses, our rev-
enues are down dramati-
cally 29.63 percent to
be exact. My wife and I
are 95 percent certain
that we will have to close
up shop if we' lose the
county's business. We've
checked and double
checked our figures but
the numbers still come
up the same."
Others to speak on
the issue and on behalf of
the Hotzs included David
Frisby, former Monticello
police chief, Larry
Halsey, former Extension
Office director; Bobbie
Golden, owner of. Golden
Acres Ranch; and Jan
Rickey, director of the
Opera House.
They all, to one
degree or another, ques-
tioned the decision to
hire an in-house IT tech-
nician, when the services
could be outsourced to
Country Mile Computers
at a seemingly lower cost
and especially in light of
the probable conse-
quence to the company if
it lost the county's busi-
ness. Also expressed was
concern that the position
had barely been adver-
tised, if advertised at all?
"I think that advertis-
ing and looking for a can-
didate in the local pool is
better than going out-
side," said Halsey, con-
ceding all the while the
need for commonality
and uniformity in the
He also agreed, hav-
ing maintained the coun-
ty's system for a number
of years on a voluntary
basis, that the job could-
n't be done adequately or
effectively as a sideline.
"On that part I
agree," Halsey said. "It's
the who, not the what, I
disagree on."
Golden acknowl-
edged that advertising a
position could create
headaches, as Reams had
offered earlier as his rea-
son for not advertising
the position. But dealing
with such headaches was
part of the job, she said.
She said she continued to

have a problem with the
lack of local advertise-
ment and the failure to
give the Hotzs an oppor-
tunity to bid for the job.
Reams defended his
decision on a number of
levels. He noted that cre-
ation of the IT technician
position would in no way
preclude County Mile
Computers from building
or servicing the county's
"This is only for
someone to coordinate
our efforts, update our
webpage and coordinate
the purchase of equip-
ment," he said.
As for advertising the
position, it was his pre-
rogative as a constitu-
tional officer to set policy
for his office and state
law did not require the
advertising of a position,
notwithstanding the
County Commission's
practice of doing so.
He said the creation
of the position would
consolidate the costs of
other operations for the
outsourcing of the func-
tion and would save tax-
payers' money
"This is not an
attempt to put anybody
out of business," Reams
said.. "There is no evil
intention on my part. It's
for the benefit of the
county That's my job to-
figure out ways to work
more efficiently I know
I'm been branded a devil
right now but that is not
my intention."
As for the funding
source that couldn't be
used for salaries, there
were several other user
fees revenue streams that
could be used for salaries,
he said. But the bottom
line, after all was said and
done, was that the deci-
sion was solely his to
make, he said.
As Commission
Chairman Danny
Monroe succinctly put it,
"It's the clerk's decision.
Who he hires has nothing
to do with us. It's not up
to decide."
Which pronounce-
ment, coming after the
lengthy discussions that
had preceded it, caused
Commissioner Gene Hall
to throw his hands up in

even discussing this?" he

under the Records

defender or the public
prosecutor. Meaning that

Poppa's Dog House,
the newest eatery in
town, located in the for-
mer Thor Gas Station
just west of the Opera
House, opened for busi-
ness Friday Dec. 4.
Originally the opening
was slated for sometime
in September, but appar-
ently, converting the old
gas station into a restau-
rant, while maintaining
special old-time south-
ern do-it-yourself flair,
took a little longer than
was previously antici-
The parking lot is
creatively landscaped
with galvanized cattle
watering troughs, each
donning either ever-
greens or assorted color-
ful foliage, and once
inside the establish-
ment, the atmosphere
and feel is much like the
old mom and pop burger
shops or malt shops
from the 1950's. The
unique tables are all
totally handmade with
earthy gray tops and gal-
vanized aluminum
trash cans .flipped
upside down used as the
base and the pieces bolt-
ed together.

The business,
owned by Lee King of
Monticello and Sandy
Garber of Chaires, fea-
tures all-meat hot dogs
and soft-serve ice cream.
"We offer both steamed
and grilled all beef, all-
turkey and all-sausage
dogs on soft steamed
buns, corndogs, and
about 8 to 10 different
condiments including
traditional toppings of
ketchup, yellow mus-
tard, relish,, raw
chopped onions, spicy
mustard, jalapefios,
sauerkraut, coleslaw,
Coney chili, beef and
bean chili, vegetarian
chili, grated or melted
cheddar, queso cheese,
chorizo, and sauteed
onions and peppers,"
said Garber. And just in
time for these frigid
temperatures, the chili's
can also be purchased as
the main course.
One can purchase
just the dog or may
choose to go with a
combo meal consisting
of their favorite dog
with all the toppings
their heart desires,
chips and 16-ounce
drink for less than $5.

The proprietors
chose that specific loca-
tion specifically because
of the area surrounding
it and the style of the
building.- "I often drove'
by here and just loved
that building," said
Garber. "It was built in

to a historic landmark
like the Opera House,
our intention was to
maintain the integrity
of the building and
also maintain the
uniqueness of the sur-

Just Imagine...

Eddie Yon, Pastor
Restored Glory
Christian Center'
Romans .5:17 "For if by one
man's offence death reigned by
one; much more they which re-,
ceive abundance of grace and of
the gift of righteousness shall
reign in life by one, Jesus Christ."
For many of us, as Christmas
] day gets closer, our anticipation
grows with each day, especially
for those who are in a position to
give gifts. We look forward to see-
ing little faces light up in awe. We
desire to see friends and loved
ones scream with excitement or
have their eyes get big as we sur-
prise them with the gift they
needed or desired.
As I began to meditate this
week on what Christmas means
to me, I was given the opportunity
to share the following truths with
(1) The prayers of the right-
eous avail much. (James 5:16)
In sum, the prayers of a righteous
person are powerful and effective
because of his/her "right stand-
ing" with God.
(2) We are the righteousness
in God, through Christ (Philippi-
ans 3:9)
We are in right standing with
God, through the work that Christ
did on the cross.
You see, through Jesus
Christ, God brought a turn-

Eddie Yon

around to mankind's sinful situa-
tion, not only by restoring man's
righteousness but also by estab-
lishing it on a permanent.basis.
Yes, beloved, our righteousness is
irrevocable because it's not based
on what we did or do; it's based on
the gift of righteousness given to
us through Jesus.
However, the thing that, I re-
ally want you to see is God's de-
sire to get this gift to you. As I
mentioned at the opening of this
message, many of us are excited
about giving our gifts to others.
But the bible tells us that God de-

sires to give gifts as well. As
Matthew 7:11 tells us, "If ye then,
being evil, know how to give good
gifts unto your children, how
much more shall your Father
which is in heaven give good
things to them that ask him?"
Can any of us fathom God's
excitement about giving us the
gift of righteousness? Could you
see Him preparing a way to come
to Him at all times without appre-
hension or inhibition? Could you
image Him providing a means in
which we could pray every day
knowing that our prayers have
the weight they should have?
As a father who desires to
give gifts, I can see a loving smile
etched of God's face as He pre-
pared this gift for us. I could see
the thoughtfulness behind the gift
because it was sorely needed by
mankind. And I could see the
preparation of the gift because of
its lasting quality: it neither fades
nor fails,, dissolves nor dwindles.
Its use lasts a lifetime and its at-
tainment takes us into eternity.
By possessing it, we secure every
victory and seal our destiny. Now,
if you were excited about wrap-
ping your gift, just imagine the
Father's excitement as He pre-
pared His gift of righteousness
for you.
Merry Christmas and listen
to Pastor Yon every Sunday at 8
a.m. on 97.9 FM.

In today's economy, everyone is aware of how important it is to make every
penny count when making purchase decisions. Jefferson Elementary School stu-
dents have had the first-hand opportunity to see how important this skill actually is.

Wanda Gabriell, Cameron Bell,; and Aaliyah Martin calculate the change they will
receive after purchasing items they have selected during their shopping spree visit
to Ms. Cynthia Davis's classroom store. The mathematics simulation enterprise was
one of the culminating activities devised by Ms. Davis (pictured in the background
assisting students with their selections) to help monitor students' progress in learn-
ing the value of money and the application of money-counting skills in real-life sit-

and are eagerly looking forward to their next in-school shopping experience.

a natural. Soon Damon
was playing small clubs
in and around the Tampa
Bay area. Years later and
thousands of shows
behind him, you've got

watch and pleasing to
hear. A show that
