City Readies To Change

Water And Sewer Rates




Land On


Jefferson Journal
Senior Staff Writer
Jefferson County now
controls more than 33-
plus acres that it outright
owns or leases at and
around the head of the
Wacissa River, a longtime
goal of county officials
that took nearly two
decades to accomplish.
The county acquired
the latest piece of land -
consisting of two small
tracts adjacent Wacissa
Springs from New
River Holdings, LLC; i.e.,
the James Boland family
In exchange, the county
gave up land elsewhere
and promised other con-
Per the terms of the
legal agreement, which
the Jefferson County
Commission executed on
Thursday April 15, New
River Holdings conveyed
to the county "two small
tracts of land lying
between the county's land
and the water's edge of
the Wacissa Springs".
New River Holdings
also conveyed to the coun-
ty by quitclaim deed any
portion of lands lying
west of the Suwannee

For better or for
worse, city residents can
expect to see changes in
their water and sewer
rates in the coming
months. The Monticello
City Council, in fact, is
expected to take up an
ordinance to that effect
at 7 p.m. Tuesday May 4.
The ordinance, the
drafting of which the

council ordered on April
6, follows two workshops
that city official held on
March 18 and 23 with
Tom Love, a Monticello
resident and computer
expert who has been
studying the rate struc-
ture for a couple of
years and voluntarily
prepared various statis-
tical scenarios of possi-
ble rate increases.
As proposed, the
changes would employ a

variable model, which
would result in cus-
tomers paying for actual
water use, as opposed to
a fixed rate, which is
pretty much what the
city now has. The stated
aim of the proposed
change is to make the
rate structure fairer and
conservation minded by

Late Filing Of Homestead

Exemption Now Allowed

Jefferson Journal
Senior Staff Writer
Here's good news
from Property
Appraiser Angela Gray

to any county resident
who may have missed
the March 1 deadline for
filing the homestead
The good news is

Photo Submitted
Jefferson County Property Appraiser Angela
Gray, with Gov. Charlie Crist, was one of several
property appraisers from around the state who
attended the official signing of HB-179 into law by the

that there is still time to
claim the exemption,
provided an applicant
actually qualifies for the
exemption and can show
extenuating circum-
stances for missing the
March 1 deadline.
Gray relates that
House Bill 179, which
the Florida Legislature
passed in 2009, allows
her office to accept and
approve applicants who
filed after the March 1
deadline, provided the
latter meet the applica-
ble criteria.
In the past, a person
who missed the deadline
had to file an application
and petition with the
Value Adjustment Board
and pay a $15 fee. But
under the new rule,
property appraisers are
authorized to approve
the late application
without additional cost
to the homeowner.
"We were elated that
this bill passed in 2009,"
Gray says. "Anything
that we can do to
improve the process and
help homeowners is def-
initely a change in the
right direction."
Gray notes that for

Many of these have

before statehood for

an important part of our
Because of the
importance of the ceme-
teries to our history, a
project has been
launched that will not
only preserve the ceme-
teries as well as other
treasures such as evi-
dence of Native-
American and Spanish
culture, but will also
help people learn about
our county's history
That project uses mod-
ern geographic technol-
ogy to identify, map, and
document the historic
cemeteries in the county
As a beginning for
the project, with the
assistance of Dee
Counts and Ronald
Wirick of the Keystone
Genealogy Library, a list
of a number of old
cemeteries together
with an inventory of the
grave stones within each
listed cemetery was
obtained. That informa-
tion is now being labori-
ously typed into a digital
file. Each of those ceme-
teries, as well as others
being pointed out by
long-time county resi-
dents, is being visited
and a geographical posi-
tion (latitude and longi-
tude) for each being
measured using a Global
Positioning System
(GPS) receiver. As the
information is gathered,
it is being added to the
digital file in a geo-
graphic information
system (GIS). That sys-
tem allows the viewing
of the locations on a
map of the county as
well as viewing other
information associated
with each cemetery The
goal is to eventually
have the GIS available
on the internet for pub-
lic use.
As a base map for

parcel. Each parcel in
the county is "georefer-
enced" or related to its
true position on the
earth by geographic
coordinates and may
thus be viewed together
with other georefer-
enced information such
as aerial photography,
topographic contours,
and soil maps. That map
was created by the coun-
ty property appraiser's
office a few years ago
and is constantly updat-
ed by that office. It now
also serves as a base
map for the county and
city planning and zon-
ing as well as for many
other community func-
Thus, the location of
each cemetery may be
seen as an overlay on a
map relative to the land
parcels or on an aerial
photography back-
ground. A file of infor-
mation containing infor-
mation about each ceme-
tery may be viewed by
clicking on the symbol
for a particular ceme-
tery That file also con-
tains a link to a listing of
all gravestones in the
cemetery as well as pho-
tographs. The GIS has a
query function that
allows a user to search
for a particular ceme-
tery by name or by a
name on a listed grave-
By adding a geo-
graphic location and
modern mapping tech-
nology to historical
research, the project
will accomplish several
functions. Most impor-
tantly, it will perpetuate
the precise location of
the cemeteries and thus
allow for the physical
location of these sites
when needed, even if
the site is overgrown.
Further, those locations
will be associated with
specific land parcels
which will allow protec-
tion of the sites if the
land is being developed
or otherwise used in a
way that could inadver-
tently destroy the ceme-

tery Additionally, the
project will also provide
a method for easy dis-
semination of informa-
tion about the sites to
interested persons and
will also be a useful tool
for genealogical
To date, about 80
cemeteries have been
mapped and entered
into the system and
another 50 have been
identified although not
yet mapped. There is
still a great deal of work
left to map all of the
cemeteries, to develop
current inventories of
the gravestones, and to
prepare brief histories
on all of them. But
progress is being made
with the assistance of
several county resi-
dents. For example,
John Finlayson recently
helped locate a number
of small cemeteries in
the Ashville area. Also,
my daughter, Sally Cole,
has identified and
mapped a number of
sites around the county
Hopefully, we can also
begin adding other
types of information to
the system such as evi-
dence of Native-
American and Spanish
settlements and infor-
mation about early plan-
Therefore, we
should soon have an
operating system that
will provide an easily
accessible means of cat-
aloging and viewing the
unique cultural and
environmental features
of the county It should
be an exciting asset to
the county in that it will
allow for the preserva-
tion and dissemination
of information about
our history and environ-

City Man Charged With Resisting Officer

A city man was
arrested last week and
charged with resisting
an officer without vio-
lence and driving while

tine traffic stop.
The Monticello
Police Department
reported that on April 9
at 9:32 p.m., Officer
William Lowery initiat-
ed a traffic stop on a
white 1983 Oldsmobile
traveling eastbound on
First Street, due to a
nonfunctioning tail-
The vehicle turned
onto Sneed Street and
pulled into a driveway
The driver of the vehi-
cle, later identified as

wL called a local restau-
Irant for dinner last
night. Before I actually
talked to anyone I was
hung up on... TWICE. When
I finally did talk to the per-
son taking the order they
put me on hold. I waited
for five minutes and I all I
could hear were people
laughing. So I proceeded
to go and pick dinner up
take, the service was
even slower. If you want
people to continue
"spending local" please
give us some quality serv-
ice that we don't mind
paying for!"

perhaps "Cap Baby

rr^Po the person who
I complained that he
should be able to walk his
dog at the recreation park,
you should understand
that if you walk your dog
on the "ball fields" (which
you were doing) the kids
playing ball in the outfield
will step, slide or other-
wise fall in your dogs
poop. You should walk
your dog elsewhere or on
a back country road,
where children are not
playing. (plenty available
in Jefferson County).

you leave the games, you

you do it every night!!!"

Larry Mack
Monticello, opened his
door, stepped out of his
vehicle and walked to
the front of the vehicle.
Lowery exited his
vehicle and asked the
driver if he had his
license. Mack stood, fac-
ing the officer, said he



didn't have his license
and turned and started
to walk away
The officer told
Mack to come here that
he needed to talk to him,
at which point, Mack
reportedly fled on foot
headed westbound in
the direction of Key
Street. Lowery chased
Mack but lost sight of
him in the trailer park
between Sneed and Key
Lowery verified that
the vehicle belonged to a
female and he reported
to Lt. Mack Norton that
fact and gave him a
description of the driv-
er. Mack said that the
driver might have been
the owner's brother,
Larry Mack, II. The offi-

cer then looked up Mack
on his computer and
verified that he was the
driver that Lowery had
spoken to.
Lowery noted that
Mack's driver's license
was suspended in
January, 2006 for five
years for being a habitu-
al traffic offender and
that Mack also had sev-
eral indefinite license
suspensions for unpaid
traffic fines.
Mack was arrested
April 22 on a local coun-
ty warrant and charged
with resisting an officer
without violence and
driving while license
suspended or revoked.
A total bond of $5,000
was set and he bonded

Jefferson Journal

Club, was a huge success.
80 tickets were sold and
more dinners served, for
a sellout fundraising
The event was held
on Thursday, April 22 at
the clubhouse, and was
well attended by several
local employers and their
assistants. Employers
took this opportunity to
show their appreciation
to their workers for jobs

well done.
The event was
chaired by MWC
President Jan
Wadsworth and member
Toni Lane, who also pre-
pared the best chicken
salad in the south. MWC
members also prepared
the pies served and the
other side servings, and
cold drinks.
As an extra treat,
participants were award-

Last week, a man on a mission
passed through town carrying a home-
made 2x4 cross bearing the name of
Jesus. When asked for his name, he
simply said, "Call me Joy Joy Joy!"
"I don't do this in recognition for
myself, I do it to bring recognition to
Jesus," he said. "I'm just praising and
worshiping the Lord and winning
souls for Christ. My main thing is sim-
ply being obedient to the Lord."
He explained that he is a part of a
group called SONshine Ministry Cross
Walk & Talk. Though he is from South
Carolina, he began his walk in
Jacksonville Beach, FL on his trek to
Los Angeles, CA. His personal trek
consists of himself and his wife and he

day. "She drives ahead and meets with
me about ten miles from where we
started that morning," he said. "Christ
just called me to spread His word.
"We left South Carolina on faith
and set out on Easter morning," he
added. "It'll probably take about six to
eight months to reach LA. When we
started, we figured I would walk about
ten miles a day, but so far, we're ahead
of the game. Once I walk to where my
wife is, we rest and prepare for the next
He said that he has met all kinds of
people along the way "I get a lot of

The other motiva-
tion for the rate change
is to make the water and
sewer operations self-
sufficient, which nei-
ther are entirely now,
although they are sup-
posed to be. The city, in
fact, is presently facing
a potential $80,000-plus
shortfall in the two
In order for the two
operations to come out
in the black and be self-
sufficient, city officials
have set annual targets
of $350,000 for the water
account and $900,000 for
the sewer account.
As proposed, the
base rate for water
would be $5 monthly,
with an additional $1.20
for every 100 cubic feet
of water used.


To be eligible, appli-
cants must be first-time
homeowners. Meaning
that they haven't owned a
house in the last three
years, according to the
authority Borrowers
must also meet normal
mortgage requirement
and demonstrate credit
worthiness; occupy the
purchased home as their
principal residence; and
the household income
may not exceed the estab-
lished limits.
Typically, homebuy-
ers may choose to go with
a conventional, FHA-

Currently, the water
rate for residential cus-
tomers is $12.50 within
the city and $18.75 out-
side the city, with mini-
mal incremental
increases for water
usage above a set level.
"At 800 cubic feet,
the proposed rate begins
to do its thing," Love
told the council during
one of the workshops.
"So that the guy using
4,000 cubic feet in his
residence will pay near-
ly $500 monthly"
For sewer, the pro-
posed base rate would be
$18 monthly, with an
additional $3 for every
100 cubic feet of water
used. The current sewer
rate for residential cus-
tomers is $26.50 inside
the city and $35.25 out-

He waned to know what
needed to be done to
affect the name change.
The answer was that
the proposed change
would have to be proper-
ly advertised and a pub-
lic hearing held, to allow
all affected residents a
chance to have input
into the matter.
Sheriff David Hobbs
next offered that com-
missioners could obvi-
ously do what they
liked. But he just want-
ed to point out that the
street sign had been
spelled Pinneywood for
as long as anyone could

remember. In fact, the
Pineywood spelling had-
n't come about until one
of the original signs had
disappeared and the
county had replaced it
with one showing the
correct spelling.
More important,
Hobbs said, the postal
and 911 systems, as well
as other databases, were
keyed to the
Pinneywood spelling.
Meaning that all these
databases would have to
be changed if the name
were changed.

Team One of

Support, Compassion and Love

Jefferson Journal
Staff Writer
The First United
Methodist Church Relay
For Life team members
have a wide variety of
reasons why they partici-
pate in the Relay, but their
main reasons are to
remember and carry
those who have lost their
battle to cancer and to
show love, compassion
and support to those who
are still going through the
battle against cancer.
Their theme this year is
"Groovin' For A Cure."
The church presently
has two ongoing fundrais-
ers to raise funds for the
American Cancer
Society's battle against
cancer. Team co-captain
Helen Braswell said the
first of the fundraisers is
a raffle for two hand-
painted windows.
The windows were
hand-painted by artist
Milly Jo Clark. The herb
garden window measures
48" x 28" and the hearts
and flowers window
measures 36" x 28". Over
the next few weeks, the
windows will be dis-
played at Farmers and
Merchants Bank,
Edenfield's Hardware,
Milady's and one is cur-
rently at Jackson's Drugs.
The drawings for
each window will be sepa-
rate. The tickets are $5
each or five tickets for
$20. Tickets can be pur-
chased with each mer-
chant, at the First United
Methodist Church, locat-
ed at 325 Walnut Street or
by calling the church at
997-5545. Tickets can also
be purchased from
Braswell, who can be
reached by calling 997-
The second ongoing
fundraiser is the sale of
Boston butts. Each butt

weighs approximately 6.5
-7 pounds, is tender and
flavorful, and feeds about
10-15 people. The butts
will be prepared by
The tickets are $25
each and can be pur-
chased from church mem-
bers, Relay team mem-
bers and at the church.
Pick up for the butts will
be May 8, just in time for
Mother's Day, 11 a.m.
until 3 p.m. at Johnston's.
$10 of each ticket sold
will go to the Relay team
which sold the ticket.
Braswell added that
during the recent
Southern Music Rising
music festival, renowned
artist John Daso was in
town and he donated one
of his giclee pieces (a can-
vassed print of one of his
original paintings), to
raise funds for the FUMC
Relay team. "I don't know
exactly what we are going
to do yet, but it will prob-
ably be a closed silent
auction bid held some-
time after the Relay For
Life, though the funds
raised would all go to the
American Cancer Society
Another fundraiser
is being conducted
Friday, April 30 at the
FUMC Life Enrichment
Center (fellowship hall),
beginning at 7 p.m. Dr.
Mike Purvis, Laura
Powell and friends will be
offering a night of music,
featuring music from the
1920's, 1930's and 1040's.
Coffee and desserts will
be served during the
event. The event is free to
the community but coor-
dinators do request dona-
tions to go toward the
Relay For Life.
Another fun concept
for the fundraising effort,
church members ask for
monetary donations to go
toward "Make the
Preacher Walk".

Braswell explained that it
was a fun way to get
Pastor Wayne Cook to
walk during the Relay For
Life event.
Since the team mem-
bers are so many and so
wide spread into even
neighboring counties, a
few local members on the
team were asked for their
reasons for being on the
Braswell said her rea-
son for being a member of
the team and the team co-
captain this year was the
fact that she had lost sev-
eral of her friends that
she attended Jefferson
High School with, pass
from cancer over the
years. "Also, my oldest
brother, Wally Bentley,
passed several years ago
from lung cancer, he was
much to young." She
added that her brother
was a well-known car
enthusiast and that the
Watermelon Festival Car
Show was named after
She added that this
year, the FUMC team
would be raising funds in
honor of church member
and long-time church sec-
retary Cheryl Hrynciw,
who is currently battling
mouth cancer. "She is a
good friend to all of us,"
she added.
Co-captain Tom
Braswell added, "We have
family members and
friends who have suc-
cumb to cancer, so I do
this to help try to prevent
it from ever happening to
anyone else."
Team member Pat
Frey said her husband,
Andrew "Andy" Frey
passed away from cancer
in 1992. The Jefferson
County Humane Society
shelter was named in his
honor. "I have also had
friends and family, who
were also lost to cancer,"

said Frey "Everyone has
someone or knows some-
one who has been affected
by cancer or some degree,
but the number one rea-
son for me is in remem-
brance of my husband."
Team member Jackie
Johnson said she had
been involved with the
Relay For Life since the
event began here several
years ago. "I started with
Jane Gayle Boyd, we basi-
cally started it," she said.
"Mary Hughes (a church
member), who had cancer
and was battling the dis-
ease, inspired us to walk
and we walked for her.
She has since passed."
She explained that
she and the FUMC Relay
Team members have
walked with different
church members affected
by cancer, in their minds
and hearts. "We walked
for Cheryl Hrynciw, we
walked for Nancy Witty
one year, we walked for

Doug Wainright one year,
whenever we walked, it
was with one of our
church family in our
minds and in our hearts,"
said Johnson. "This is
one way to show that we
are with them during this
battle. Some have lost the
battle, but some have not
and are now survivors.
"Every little bit
helps," she added. "We
hope there will one day be
no cancer, that's why we
do what we can now to
raise funds for research,"
Johnson concluded.
Team member Ray
Hughes added. "I'm a
team member because I
am a cancer survivor," he
said. "I also lost my wife
to cancer six years ago. I
lost my mother to cancer.
I recently lost a sister-in-
law to cancer. I have a sis-
ter who had breast cancer
and she is a survivor. And
I have a brother and a
niece, who are cancer sur-

vivors," Hughes said.
Margarete Calhoun
added, "I was the church
Relay team leader for the
past eight years, mainly
because years ago, I lost a
cousin to brain cancer.
Also, there are so many
friends, family members
and co-workers, who have
been touched by cancer
somehow. I guess it just
keeps getting bigger and
bigger and I want to help
combat it. This is a way to
support those who have
passed from cancer and
the one's who are fighting
it now, it's such a hard bat-
tle. The one's who have
passed, know we were
helping with the fight to
find a cure to battle this,"
she concluded.
FUMC Pastor Wayne
Cook added, "Every fami-
ly is affected by cancer
and it is the duty of the
church to do the work of
Christ by reaching out to
all persons."

Daughtrey Is A Team Player And Cancer Survivor

Jefferson Journal
Staff Writer
Linda Daughtrey has been a
breast cancer survivor for seven years
now. Her yearly mammogram in
August 2003 found the cancer, a differ-
ent kind in each breast. The doctors
told her that to have these two kinds of
cancers in the same area at the same
time was a million to one. The cancer
was found very deep in her chest.
She had a double mastectomy
within two weeks of the find, not
because she was hurting, but because
she was scared the cancer would
spread. "Because my doctors caught
the cancer early, they got it all," she
remarks happily.
"When the surgeon called me with
the initial report, I went to the floor. I
had to hand my husband the phone.
My mind froze. I couldn't think. I went
numb," she remembers.
A mastectomy is the surgical
removal of all or part of a breast,
sometimes including excision of the
underlying pectoral muscles and
regional lymph nodes, usually per-
formed as a treatment for cancer
Mastectomy is performed as a surgical
treatment for breast cancer The severi-
ty of a breast cancer is evaluated
according to a complex system called
staging. This takes into account the
size of the tumor and whether it has
spread to the lymph nodes, adjacent tis-

sues, and/or distant parts of
the body A mastectomy **
usually is the recom-
mended surgery for
more advanced
breast cancers.
Women with

cers, who
might also

financial, per-

related factors.
In geographically isolated areas, a
course of radiation therapy may
require lengthy travel and perhaps
unacceptable amounts of time away
from family or other responsibilities.
Some women choose mastectomy

She continued with radiation
treatments every day for six weeks
after the double mastectomy She did-
n't lose a bit of hair, but says the
burns were awful. "I'm very fortunate
though," she adds. She had regular 6-
month visits with her surgeon for a
couple of years after the radiation
therapy Now, she sees her oncologist
every 6-months. She had to take a can-
cer pill for the first five years. It was
very costly... $300+ every month.
"I used to get scared every time I
would feel a twinge but now I'm doing
just fine. I can do anything I want. The
cancer has not limited me. I spend a
lot of time sewing. It's just something
I love to do. I started making Prayer
Quilts in 2004. I've made 104 since my
first one. It's something I can do for
my church and for those in need. It's
my ministry," she says.
Daughtrey has been married to
John for 20 years. Together they have
five children, eight grandchildren,
and two great-grandchildren... with
one on the way She's retired from the
Sheriff's Department. They are active
members of Wacissa United
Methodist Church, and she's on the
church Relay For Life team.

National Safe Boating Week May 22-28

Jefferson Journal
Staff Writer
A startling number
of boating accident
deaths occur each year,
because people are not
wearing a life jacket.
The leading cause of

these deaths was drown-
ing. Rear Admiral
James A. Watson, the
Director of Prevention
Policy of the United
States Coast Guard, stat-
ed that in over two
thirds of fatal boating
accidents, people

weren't wearing life
jackets. National Safe
Boating Week, May 22 to
28, is designed to help us
with this tragic situa-
The United States
Power Squadrons and its
local squadron members

nationwide encourage
all recreational boaters
to wear a life jacket. It
also recommends that
the over 70 million recre-
ational boaters in the
U.S., without boating
training register for a
safe boating course to
protect them and their
Greg Scotten, the
Chairman of the USPS

Committee reminds us
that, "This year, in the
weeks leading up to and
following National Safe
Boating Week, over 450
locations will be offering
programs in America's
Boating Course 3rd
Edition as well as criti-
cal seminars and demon-
stration days."
Scotten encourages

all recreational boaters
to take personal respon-
sibility for their safety
and that of their passen-
gers. Simply go to
www.usps.org and click
on "Take A Boating
Course" to find a local
program taught in a
short classroom session.
He said people could also
call 1-888-FOR-USPS for
more information.

I Iremeiieiui Oaturiuay
mornings in the city We
would leisurely arise, eat
breakfast, slowly sip cof-
fee, browse through the
paper, and then decide
what we may like to do
that day Ah, the city life.
Saturday mornings in
the country are way
more exciting than city
Saturday's! Oh yes folks,
that's the day when I
chase foxes from my back
door and dehorn and hal-
ter train calves. No rest
for the weary around
Farmer-husband had
decided that we would
keep our bull calf
"intact" and use him for
future breeding. Because
of the rumor that Jersey
bulls are the meanest
bulls on earth, the
farmer said Bittersweet
couldn't live here and
keep his horns, so the
deed had to be done. And
bright and early one
Saturday morning was
the day. A cauterizing
tool was involved. A
lasso was involved. A lot
of wincing and looking
away was involved (on
my part). My sister from
Miami wanted to know if
we were going to give the
calf any anesthesia. I
wanted to know if she
was kidding. She wasn't.
Bittersweet sticks
close to his Mama, which
is a precious thing con-
sidering their history,
but it makes it very diffi-
cult for us to catch him.
Farmer-hubby has gotten
quite good at his roping
skills! It's like our own
personal rodeo right in
our front yard. Again,
can you get free enter-
tainment like this in the
city? I don't think so.
Once he was caught, and
the dehorning in

process, I ueciueu Lmad i I
better offer my services.
Not that I have many
services to offer in this
type of a situation, but
still, I felt I need to at
least ask hubby "Do you
need anything?" I quietly
offered from around the
corner. Silence. Hmmm,
maybe I shouldn't have
said anything. I hear
rustling and grunting.
He then mutters,
"Somebody stronger." I
almost said, "You mean
someone stronger than
me? Or someone stronger
than you?" But I held my
tongue. I figured I'd bet-
ter wait on those ques-
tions. Hubby didn't seem
like he was in the mood
to chit chat. So I waited,
tried to peer around and
see what I could see-noth-
ing. But I could smell
burning alright. I would
later learn that hubby
had burned his own hand
pretty bad during the
process as well. Ouch!
Bittersweet didn't enjoy
human contact much
before this event and I
can tell you he surely
doesn't trust us any more
now, after the fact!
For first time
dehorners like ourselves,
it was a difficult to know
if we had done this pro-
cedure correctly and
thoroughly It looked
pretty good to us, but
what do we know?
Correction, what do I
know? Unfortunately,
when time tells if we
have or not, it will be too
late to do anything about
it. Poor Bittersweet may
just have to live his life
with one or two peculiar
shaped horns. I'll try to
never put him in front of
a mirror.
The next Saturday
was time for halter train-

ing. Once again, we had a
rodeo in the front yard to
get the lead clipped on to
the halter. If you've ever
put a leash on a puppy for
the first time, you are
familiar with what we
were about to deal with.
Bittersweet had not a
clue that we simply want-
ed him to walk. He dug in
his heels, pulled back his
neck as far as he could,
and put every ounce of
his weight in his rear
end. This went on for
awhile, until his Mama
came over to see what
was going on, and she
was able to get him mov-
ing forward for us. The
scene in the pasture was
this: Farmer hubby with
a lead pulled taught on a
calf that won't budge, an
800-lb Mama cow (with
horns) putting her 2
cents in on the matter, 2
youngens roaming about
trying to herd the goats, 2
cats roaming about try-
ing to herd the kids, 1

grass (she's the only one
with the right idea!) and

I'm telling you what-

been the same since I
moved to the country and
I can't complain one bit!

Arbor Day Found-
ation Chief Executive
and Founder John
Rosenow, offered the fol-
lowing op-ed this week
as National Arbor Day is
celebrated April 30 this
"When we think of
forests, majestic trees,
precious wildlife, and
clean, fresh air might
come to mind. We proba-
bly don't think about the
water we drink.
"We should.
"When you turn on
your faucet this Arbor
Day, take a moment and
think about the impor-
tant role trees play to
make sure what comes
out of the tap is healthy
and clean.
"Most people know
that trees produce oxy-
gen that we breathe and
clean the air by acting as
giant filters, removing
harmful particles and
pollutants. But you may
not be aware that trees
work just as hard to pro-
tect and purify our
water sources, including
those that provide
drinking water for mil-
lions of Americans
every day
"Trees improve
water quality by slowing
rain as it falls to the
earth, and helping it
soak into the soil. They
also prevent soil from
eroding into our water-
ways, reduce stormwa-
ter runoff, and lessen
flood damage. They
serve as natural filters
to protect our streams,
rivers, and lakes.
"Forests in the

United States are the
source of drinking
water for more than 180
million people, 59 per-
cent of the U.S. popula-
tion. Forests help pro-
tect vital water sources
such as sparkling moun-
tain streams filled with
melting snow, healthy
reservoirs and lakes,
and our nation's vast
web of rivers.

"Our forested areas
are shrinking at an
alarming rate. The U.S.
Forest Service estimates
that more than 40 mil-
lion acres of private for-
est could be lost in the
next 40 years.
"Why is that impor-
tant to us? As U.S.
Department of
Agriculture Secretary
Tom Vilsack said,
"While most Americans
live in urban areas, most
of us depend on rural
lands, particularly for-
est lands, for clean
water and a healthy cli-
"One example of an
urban area that depends
on forested land for
water is New York City

In the late 1990s, New
York City leaders balked
at a $6 billion water
treatment system and
instead opted to go with
natural landscape man-
agement to clean the
water it receives from
the Catskill/Delaware
watershed in upstate
New York. The focus is
on creating conserva-
tion easements along
streams and reservoirs,
and protecting forest
lands to keep sediment
and runoff from enter-
ing the water supply
"The watershed pro-
vides most of New York
City's daily supply of
drinking water, more
than 1 billion gallons
each day New Yorkers
enjoy some of the clean-
est, healthiest drinking
water in the world.
"Millions of
Californians rely on
crystal-clear water flow-
ing from Plumas and
other National Forests
to quench their thirst.
Melting snow and rain
water flow from the
Plumas into the Feather
River and eventually
winds up in the
Sacramento River.
Water from the Plumas
relies on the entire
ecosystem, which
includes trees, to keep it
pristine until it reaches
taps throughout central
and northern
California. This is just
one example of how our
national forests help
clean the water.
"These solutions are
an alternative to manu-
factured water treat-

ment systems, and are
beneficial in so many
ways. Unfortunately, the
conventional response is
too often to pay for
expensive artificial
treatment systems
rather than rely on natu-
ral resources.
"One way to protect
and clean our water sup-
ply is to plant trees, and
the need to replant our
nation's forests is vitally
important. The U.S.
Forest Service has iden-
tified a backlog of 1 mil-
lion acres in national
forests alone that are in
need of replanting
because of damage from
recent wildfires, insects,
and disease.
"There is no substi-
tute for clean water.
Water is a vital resource
that we rely on every
day We can't create
something else to take
its place.
"But we can plant
"We enjoy trees for
many reasons their
shade on a warm day,
the energy they save
when they're planted
around our homes, the
bountiful food they pro-
vide, the songbirds they
bring close by
"Remember the role
trees play in keeping our
drinking water clean.
As you celebrate Arbor
Day this year, don't take
your clean drinking
water for granted when
you turn on the tap.

hard to help deliver that

She is the daughter of
Dave and Mona Lewis of
Monticello and plans to
attend Rhodes College in
Memphis in the fall,
where she plans to study
psychology with an
emphasis in autism.
Her mother, an
English and journalism
teacher at Brookwood,
confesses, "What I am
proudest of is that Abby
commutes nearly 70 miles
roundtrip daily and has
chores related to our
home and farm."
Mona Lewis recalls
times her daughter would
have to bottle-feed a goat
or a calf at 6:30 on cold
winter mornings before
heading to school.
"She and her brother,
Jacob, Brookwood Class
of 2008, both truly under-
stood what a sacrifice it's
been for us to send them
to a school like this and
they took their jobs of
being students seriously,"
