one-fourth of the county's entire
annual property tax revenue to
cover the expense.

the request during the
commission's regular meeting
Monday, Dec. 7, after presenting
financial reports showing a second
straight month with a more than
$400,000 net operating loss at the

said would support the hospital

monthly subsidy would be
required until a secondary funding
source was secured, such as an
additional one-cent sales tax or a
hospital authority which could
levy ad valorem 'property taxes.
Both options were discussed at last
week's meeting, but
commissioners have not yet made
any official moves toward either.
During Wednesday's workshop,

One of the biggest issues facing

Editor's Note: See what Saturday
nights were really all about with this
nostalgic visit to downtown Perry written
by the late Sam Register.
As indicated previously,
Saturday was the high-point of the
week with everybody coming to
town and the merchants around the
courthouse block staying open for
business until midnight and, more
often than not, later.
But midnight was generally
accepted as "quitting time" when
the store owners and their male
employees would gather in
"Fuzzy" Cogburn's Barber Shop
for a shave, haircut and/or hot
"shower bath." The going price, I
believe, was 20 cents for shaves
and 25 cents each for haircuts and
This was a time for relaxation
and good fellowship, as only an
old-time barber shop could
provide. Having secured their
needs at the barber shop, the
patrons drifted over to Harry
Mantzanas' "El Dorado Cafe" for a
snack or full-scale meal before
calling it a "night."
There were other boys about my
age who worked in the various
stores around town, and we
followed in our elders' footsteps to
the barber shop and to the cafe,
where the older men seemed to
accept us as equals. My favorite
late night meal at the "El Dorado"
was a "hot roast beef sandwich
with gravy," served with generous
portions of fried potatoes, sliced in
thick wedges, all for 20 cents.
I still think no one has ever
cooked roast beef and fried
potatoes as good as the "El
Dorado's." Life simply did not get
any better than that, as I have often

Nineteen members of the
Roseheads of Perry, chapter 2207
of the Red Hat Society, met
Saturday, Dec. 1, 2007, at 10:30
a.m. at the Shrine Club for their
meeting and Christmas party.
Each lady brought a lunch item for
the buffet and an ornament for the
ornament exchange. A committee
of Alice Brady, Patricia Lindsey
and Nancy Simons provided
coffee, juices, paper products, a
keepsake gift for each attendee and
the beautiful decorations.
The ladies enjoyed some time
visiting together. Alice Brady rang
the Red Hat bell and welcomed
everyone. After saying the
blessing, Brady invited everyone
to the buffet, which was filled with
a variety of delicious foods.

followed by a game where
Christmas carols had been
"renamed" using more modem
words. The object of this activity
was to correctly identify the song
by its traditional title. Everyone
enjoyed this lively game, which
was led by Nancy Simons.
The ornament exchange was
next. Each lady was given a
wrapped ornament. She could,
unwrap it or "steal" someone's
"unwrapped ornament, giving the
wrapped ornament to the lady
whose ornament she "stole."
Queen Mother Hattie Adams had
the honor of being the last to
"steal" the ornament of her choice.

6-pointer was a doe
Thirteen-year-old C.J. Nowling,
of Jay, Fla., took.his, first buck

grandfather in Santa Rosa County
-- or did he?
'What the boy and h'is
grandfather didn't realize until they
were cleaning it was the 6-point
buck was actually an antlered doe.
"In most of these cases, what
we find is that the deer has a.
combination of both male and
female internal sex organs, and the
external sex organs are usually
underdeveloped and not well
defined," Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
biologist and Deer Management
Program leader Dr. Robert
"Deer with both male and
female sex organs are called
underdeveloped males, called
,cryptorchids,. cani be mistaken' for
antlered does because they also

sex organs," he said.
But after close inspection of the
carcass and its entrails by
veterinarian David Summerlin and
FWC wildlife technician Mike
Graves. the 110-pound deer
Nowling shot had only female sex
organs and its antlers were hard
"In most cases, antlers on
female deer tend to be malformed
and stay in velvet. A doe with
polished antlers, which is what
I'm told this young man shot, is
quite a rare occurrence,"
Vanderhoof said. "Females -with,
polished antlers are almost always
infertile and usually have tumors
on their reproductive organs,
which produce the hormone
testosterone, necessary to enable
polished antlers to develop in
Interestingly enough, foir days
later and halfway across the state
in Levy County, Cale Barber, of
Williston, shot another antlered
doe -- this one with a 4-point
rack. The deer weighed 142
pounds, which is large for Florida

who were deer hunting on a
friend's 2,000-acre tract of land on
the Escambia River known as the
While the two men sat in a

a few turkeys and a mature black

one pretty decent buck but could
never get a good shot at him,"
But at approximately 4:45 p.m.,
a nice 6-pointer stepped out of the
woods and into view along with a
doe. That's when the eighth-
grader took aim at the deer with
his .243 rifle and made the 175-
"It was a heck of a good shot,
and we couldn't climb down out of
that stand quick enough," Waylon
said. "I'm not sure who was more
excited, me or him."

request, but were apprehensive
about the monthly subsidy.

discussed at Wednesday's meeting
was the existing one-cent sales tax

The county has some $2 million
in excess sales tax funds that have
been raised and were to be used to
make additional payments on the
bond. Brown said county staff was
in contact with the council
overseeing the bond to determine
if the funds could be used to
purchase new equipment at the
hospital. Such purchases have been
made in the past, the .last time

hospital should its problems prove
insurmountable was to convert

to become a critical access
hospital, DMH would have to be

how much it would cost the county
should the hospital flounder and
the commission had to take over

be around $600,000 to $800,000

conclusion of the meeting.
"The problems that plague the:

*A "YES" vote on the city/county
referendum is not a tax give-a-way.
It only allows our local government to compete with other
communities to attract and retain quality jobs.
*It is not automatic.-
A business seeking incentives must convince the county
commission or city council that its salary and benefits
package reach certain thresholds.
*You still have a voice.
Any incentive granted has to be done by ordinance-,and the
ordinance process requires public hearings.

iWhat will '08 b
Around this time last year, I previewed what I felt
I would be the big movies over the next 12 months,
, calling 2007 the "year of the threes."
E As it turned out, most of those three-quels brought in
huge box office totals, with the "Spider-Man," "Shrek,"
and "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies taking three of the
, top four spots among 2007's top world-wide grossing,
movies, bringing in a combined $2.6 billion. Throw in
" other hits like "Harry Potter and. the Order of the
Phoenix," "Live Free or Die Hard" and "Transformers,"
and movie studios has little to complain about last
The problem was the blockbuster season was
bookended by a disappointing spring
ari and fall. In fact, it wasn't until the last
| couple of weeks in December, with "I
Sam Legend" and surprise hits "Alvin
and Chipmunks" and "The Water
Horse," that 2007. recovered from
n would have been a very lackluster end
to the year.
So far in 2008, the box office has
been mostly dominated by holdovers
from last year, but looking ahead, the
. year has its own share of movies to
anticipate. While there doesn't seem to
a theme to this year's releases, and no
real catchphrase to drop in (like "year
of the three"), there should be enough
g, out there to draw people back to
Beginning our tour, as we leave the
theatrical no-man's land that is January,
. we find that as winter turns into spring,
we have a healthy dose of action films .
and children's flicks to fill the screens. ,
i: In February alone, we get "Fool's
Gold" (Feb. 8), starring Matthew
McConaughey and Kate Hudson as ex-
spouses and treasure hunters; "Jumper"
,(Feb. 14), about people who can
teleport.'anywhere;they want and the
Point (Feb. 22), a political thriller about
an assassination with a huge cast that
Includes Dennis Quaid, Matthew Fox,
,Forest Whitaker, Sigourney Weaver
and William Hurt.
J March brings us "10,000 B.C."
V which looks like it could be the surprise
hit of the season, with the early trailers
portraying this as a action epic in the
vein of such films as "Gladiator."
* For the kids, we have "The
Spiderwick Chronicles" (Feb. 14),
; based on the best-selling series of
W books of the same name, as well as the
animated "Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a
SWho" (March 14). Following them is
#Walden Media's "Nim's Island" on
gApril 14, starring Abigail Breslin
("Little Miss Sunshine," "The Ultimate
Gift") and Jodie Foster. Like last year's
"Bridge to Terabithia," also from
Walden Media, this looks like a
celebration of the power of imagination
Has both lead characters see their
Imaginations brought to life with the
power of computer-generated effects.
In Hollywood, summer officially
[begins in May, and 2008 is no
SStarting off the blockbuster season is
!"Iron Man" (May 2), bringing the
Marvel Comics superhero to the big
screen starring .Robert Downey Jr. in
the title role. I'm not that familiar with
the character, but friends in the know o
say from watching the trailer, Downey
has nailed the attitude of Tony Stark,
the weapons expert who ultimately
becomes Iron Man.
SThe Wachowski siblings, who gave
us the "Matrix" films, debut the high-
octane, live action remake of the
classic anime "Speed Racer" on May 9.
JThe trailer has to be one of the coolest
teasers in quite some time, and after
watching it a dozen or so times, I can
say with confidence that the film is
,either going to be incredibly good or .
SA week later will see the highly
,anticipated next installment in the
:"Chronicles of Narnia" series, "Prince
,Caspian." The four main actors return as they visit the
'realm of Narnmia again, only to find that 1,300 years have
:passed since they left.
*: Perhaps the movie I'm looking forward to the most is
gthe long-awaited fourth installment in the "Indiana
Jofies" series, when Harrison Ford dusts off the hat and
jhe whip for "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the
Crystal Skull" on May 22. Not'much is known so far
About the plot, but we should see some trailers soon.
- Fans of the hit HBO series "Sex and the City" will
finally get to see their favorite New York ladies on the
Nig screen on May 30.
The movies don't slow down in June, with
bDreamworks Animation's "Kung Foo Panda" kicking
?things off on June 6. Judging by the amount of early
I)romotional campaigns already unleashed for this one,
ring to theaters?
Dreamworks must be hoping they have the next "Shrek."
On June 13, we get director M. Night Shyamalan's
("Sixth Sense," "Signs") next film. Like most of his
films, we know practically nothing about the movie so
far, other than it stars Mark Wahlberg and concerns "a
couple who goes on the run from an apocalyptic crisis
that presents a large-scale threat to humanity." Hopefully
we get some trailers in the next few months to flesh that
out a bit.
Despite being critically panned his last time around,
"The Incredible Hulk" returns to theaters the same
weekend. From what I've read, this movie will
completely ignore 2003's "Hulk" and instead reintroduce
audiences to the green machine.
Pixar releases its latest,
"WALL*E" on June 27. The early
-trailers show that the wizards at Pixar
are not resting on their laurels (or
their Oscars) and the animation is
unbelievable. Little is known about
the story other than it involves
"Hellboy II: The Golden Army"
(July 11) returns with director
Guillermo del Toro, whose "Pan's
Labyrith" was one of my favorite
'films from last year. While the first
film left some wanting more (or
less), the trailer for the sequel looks
like the studio gave del Toro much
more creative freedom this time
Joining "Hellboy" is Brendon
Fraser's "Journey to the Center of the
Earth 3-D," which is being billed as
the first ever digitally produced live-
action 3-D movie. I saw the 3-D-
enhanced trailer for this one before
"Beowulf" and I can say I think I've
been converted from thinking 3-D is
a gimmick. I'll have to wait until July
to be sure.
with' "Dark Knight" (July 18)
bringing the caped crusader face-to-
face with the Joker and Two-Face.
It seems no year is complete these
days without a big-named musical
adaptation and for 2008, that film in
"Mamma Mia." The film features
music from the band ABBA and
starring, among others, Meryl Streep
and Pierce Bronsan.
"X-Files" fans got a .surprise last
year when it was announced that the
heralded Fox television show was
going to get a second movie. USA
Today published an interview with
creator Cris Carter this week, in
which he stated that "X-Files 2" (July
25) will not involve the convoluted
"mythology" of the series, but
instead t be a stand-lone movie.
Agents Mulder and Skully will both
be back in the suits.
Things slow down a bit in August
and September, but there are still a
few interesting flicks scheduled so
far, including: "The Mummy: Tomb
of the Dragon Emperor" (Aug. 1), the
third installment in the series; and
"Death Race" (Sept. 26), a re-make
of the 1970s cult favorite about a
cross-country race where there are no
October brings the start of the
Oscar hopefuls, including "Valkyrie,"
starring Tom Cruise in the real-life
story of a plot to kill Adolf Hilter
during World War II.
In November, we will get the 22nd
James Bond film, as yet untitled.
Daniel Craig returns from the well-
received "Casino Royale," as does
screenwriter Robert Wade. Director
Marc Forester ("Finding Neverland,"
"Stranger than Fiction") takes the
helm of the film, which is said' to
begin only minutes after the end of
The sixth Harry Potter film, "Harry
Potter and the Half-blood Prince"
hits theaters Nov. 21. With the war
against Voldemort almost in full-
gear, Professor Dumbledore decides
it is time to take a personal hand in Harry's training for
his upcoming battle.
December closes out the year with several big-named
adaptations and remakes. On Dec. 21, we will get
"Twilight," an adaptation of the first book in the best-
selling young adult series by Stephanie Meyer about a
girl who falls for a vampire. On the same day, the re-
make of the famous "The Day the Earth Stood Still" hits
Finally, on Christmas Day, J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek"
brings us a tale from the early days of James T. Kirk and
There are plenty of movies I didn't have time or space
to announce, and many others I haven't even heard of
yet. One thing is sure, there has to be something out
there for you.

N'dtice and Public Explanation of, a
Proposed Activity in the
100-Year Floodplain and Wetland
To: All Interested Agencies, Groups and
This is to give notice thot,the City of Perry
has conducted an evaluation as
required by Executive Orders 11988 and
11990 in accordance with the
Department of Housing and .Urban
Development regulations at 24 CFR
55.20 to determine the potential affect
that its activity in the floodplain and
wetland will have on the environment.
The City of Perry intends to undertake a,
project to be funded by a Florida Small
Cities Community Development Block
Grant This project will consist of
installation of sanitary.sewer lines and
sewer hook ups -in a residential
neighborhood. The neighborhood is
bounded by Dundee Street on the
North, Graham Street on the East,
Granger Drive on the South and
Washington Street on the West. This is an
existing neighborhood that is already
built-out, has paved roads and existing
centralized water service,
It has determined that it has no
practicable alternative other than to
proceed with the work. This activity will
have no significant impact on the
environment for the following reasons:
this is an existing neighborhood, the
roads are paved and there are existing
wn ter lines already in
Although the project is located in the
100-year floodplain, the improvements
cannot, be undertaken in any other
location due to the scope of the
project. There. is; therefore, no
practicable alternative. .
The proposed improvements conform
to applicable floodplain protection
standards. The proposed action will not
affect natural or beneficial floodplain
values, and residents of the commUnity
will benefit from the project. Failure to
provide these improvements would
result in no sanitary sewer lines being
placed and the continued use of
individual septic tanks.
Additional agencies involved in this
project include the Florida Department
of Community Affairs, the U.S.
Department of Housing and Urban
Development, the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection and the
Suwannee River Water Management
