new $2.4 million
After nearly two years of planning and engineering, construction
will begin Monday, March 12, on the $2.4 million "greenline" that
will redirect nearly one million gallons of treated wastewater a day
to Buckeye for re-use in its cooling towers.
Anderson Columbia was awarded the bid for the project and sub-
contracted much of the work with BlueiRok, Inc., a local company.
"Construction should take about 300 days, which means the
pipeline could be completed by the end of the year," City Manager
Bob Brown said Tuesday.
The project is being fully funded from state and federal resources.
"We will be tying in to the existing pipeline that runs parallel to
Highway 98. The new 11-mile pipeline will run down Golf Course
Road, turritonto Houck Road and follow Carlton Cemetery Road
to Highway 19. It will go under 19 and continue down C.R. 30 to
Buckeye. Everything will be installed in the road right-of-way."
Currently, the city's treated wastewater is piped to a sprayfield
located off Hampton Springs Road.
"The sprayfield will still be there and.we will continue to pump
water there as needed to maintain the pumps. We are estimating that
this new system ill save city taxpayers $50,000-$60,000 a year in
utility costs because it will cost less to send the water to Buckeye
than to the sprayfield," Brown said.
The pipeline will be designed to handle more than two million
gallons of water a day, which is twice the average amount of
discharge wastewater currently being piped to the city sprayfield.

you've ever seen. There are no other

horses. It is mostly quiet except for the
traffic in the distance.
The next morning, you watch as three

Then as the day progresses, you swoop

together. And its members did
by a unanimous vote. Which, of
course, I appreciate.
"Shortly afterwards I was
approached by well-meaning
people who advised me to
use Main Street instead. The
rest is history. Except for at
least two recent developments.
First, the council has approved
the expenditure of $35,000
to employ a Tallahassee firm
to develop the master plan I
recommended. Its members
deserve the highest praise for
their action, for a sound master
plan is absolutely essential to a
successful revitalization project.
"Second, the county
commission has indicated that it
also supports the revitalization
effort. So things are beginning
to come together in a very
positive way. Main Street will,
I'm sure, have an important role
to play as things move forward
in the days ahead. I certainly
hope so, and I wish you the very
best in all that you do to make
Perry and Taylor County a great
place to live.

never repay the debt I owe

These all tie into federal
government grants and private
grants which advocate federal
government policy. All of
the federal grants like the
Challenge Grants (SDCG),
Block Grants (CDBG),
Affordable Housing (HUD),
Agency (EPA) Tiger Grants and
Department of Transportation
(DOT), require compliance
with the ICLEI/Agenda 21
Our local politicians and
other citizens who signed on
so proudly to Vision 2060 were
not aware of United Nations
Agenda 21 and what it really
meant, but local government has
now been delivered confirmed
information to help them make
wise decisions for the future.
Please understand that this
is not a partisan issue. The
Republican National Party
passed a resolution against
Agenda 21 and ICLEI. Rosa
Koire, author of "Behind the
Green Mask: U.N. Agenda 21,"
through her website, Democrats

on both sides of the aisle to

candidacy for tax collector, as

fight against Agenda 21 and
Protection of individual
property rights and the right to
manage that property as stated
in our constitution should
remain the top priority of any
growth plan. Now plans provide
rights for the developers but
leave out property rights for the
rest of us.
We only need to look at
Martin County and their
sustainable development to see
how things go horribly wrong
for the citizens...as planned.
Many Miami Dade property
owners are being mislead and
forced to give up their property
It is vitally important that our
county grandfathers in existing
zoning densities. Additionally
we do not need the government
re-classifying uplands into
wetlands thereby restricting use
of our property.
The negative impact on a
community will not be seen at
first and many of us will not live
to see the full implementation,
but our children, grandchildren,
and future generations will
not live in the Constitutional
Republic we have enjoyed, and
they will be the recipients of the
full impact of the injustices.

kits and education Saturday,

These screenings align ISCOVer
with March which is -, .

Awareness Month. -3 L :
"If everyone age 50 or
older was screened regularly,
as many as 60 percent of
deaths from this cancer could be avoided," commented Cindy
S O'Steen, R.N., director of infection control, education and
"In most cases, colorectal cancer develops from precancerous
polyps (abnormal griwths) in the colon or rectum. Screening tests
can find precancerous polyps, so they can be removed before they
turn into cancer.
"Screening tests can also find colorectal cancer early, when
treatment works best," O'Steen added.
Saturday's screenings are presented by the Tallahassee

at 1st Presbyterian
Through March 28, Lenten devotions will be offered each
Wednesday at 12 noon at First Presbyterian Church, 310
"We will gather outside--weather permitting--for a devotion led
by Pastor Larry Neal, followed by a simple lunch of soup and
bread," said Ellie Morgan for the church office.
For those unable to attend the noon devotions, Morgan said the
Lenten messages will be repeated at 7 p.m. in the parlor, following
Wednesday night suppers which begin at 5:45 in the fellowship
hall. "These are both wonderful opportunities to better appreciate
the season of Lent and the personal reflection it deserves."
This year, Lent began on Feb. 22, Ash Wednesday, and
continues through April 7. "Sundays are not counted in the 40
days before Easter that comprise the season of Lent," Neal
explained. "The reason is that Sunday is always the Lord's Day,
the day of resurrection, a 'little Easter' and therefore a day of
rejoicing--quite in contrast with the penitential mood of Lent."
Neal and the church family cordially invite members of the
community to participate in these opportunities for Lenten
Pastors meet Sunday
to finalize health fair
Looking toward the annual health fair at Jerkins Community

"We need to wrap up details on food, condiments, ice and water,
as well as review the list of vendors. If you cannot make this
meeting, please send a representative," Butler said.

WHY DO I HEAR ...
BUT NOT UNDERSTAND?
Study by Cambridge University in England Reveals Key Answer
Until recently, there was no
practical way to identify dead
regions of hearing cells in the
ear. However. a new British
developed procedure using
standard test equipment now
allows for identification of dead
hearing cell regions. The study.
suggests that the presence or
absence of dead regions may
have serious implications in the
fitting of hearing aids.
This research reveals that
amplifying dead cells is a
mistake which will result in
poorer speech understanding in
A new type of digitally
is now being released from
Audibel -the world's leader in
nanoScience technology that

the dead cells. As a result, the
patient's usable hearing cells
