comprehensive plan to the Florida
Department of Community Affairs.
The state agency reviews all large
scale amendments to local comp
plans.
The plan, which plots a course
for Taylor County over the next 50
years, was developed through
community participation over a
10-month period with partnerships
between the Perry-Taylor County
Chamber of Commerce and the
Orlando-based planning firm
MSCW.
The issue is the Florida statute
under which the county was
preparing to transmit the vision to
DCA. Until Wednesday, the county
was operating under Florida
Statute 163. 3177, which described
the various components of a local
comprehensive plan.
According to Richard W. Unger
with MSCW, DCA officials
contacted his office along with
local representatives earlier this
week, asking them to instead use a
different statute (163.3167) which
also refers to local vision plans.
Since Wednesday's public
hearing was advertised under the
former statute, DCA requested that
the hearing be canceled and re-
advertised under the new one.
DCA's objection arises from a
separate section in the original
statute which allows local


governments that have established
a vision to then create an urban
service boundary (USB), Unger
said.
"It has come to our attention that
DCA is seriously concerned about
communities using visioning and
urban service boundaries together
to exempt state review of plan
amendments," he said.
"This was recently demonstrated
in the City of Tallahassee,. where a
proposed USB was challenged by
DCA prior to adoption. The USB
was ultimately withdrawn by the
City of Tallahassee because it had
not correctly followed the
procedures for visioning described
in [the statute]."
On March 11, Tallahassee
officials rejected a proposal to
establish an USB in a 11.2 square
mile area in the downtown area.
According to a separate statute,
once a vision has been adopted and
a USB established, a local
government can then forego state
review on future comprehensive
plan map amendments inside that
area.
Tallahassee planners have stated
that this could expedite
development by reducing the time
necessary to review developments
from 11 months to two or three.
The proposal was attacked by
neighborhood associations and
DCA, which said the city did not
hold enough public meetings prior
to the city commission making a

,"This grant will not'be competing against the Second Avenue boat

t-eans that it will be easier to make
changes, if needed, sometime

Brown said.
"And this would only affect any
property bordering the corridor's
right-of-way."
: Conditions under the ordinance
would include:
No broken glass or boarded-up
windows.
:=* Paint/coatings: no peeling or
missing patches visible from

::* Building and property exterior

: No graffiti.
:* All future businesses must be

: No unlicensed and/or
uninsured vehicles visible from

the aforementioned items.
"I think everyone is in
agreement that this is for the
betterment of the entire
community," Ketring said, drawing
a consensus from the council to


move forward with drafting an
ordinance to put these mandates in
place.
Council members also asked that
drafts of the proposed ordinance be
mailed to property owners who


would be impacted by the
changes.
"This will give them a chance to
come forward so we can bear
any concerns they may have,"
Councilman Don Cook said.

I u urn to the F x Pcnt-


decision.
At Wednesday's commission
meeting here in Perry, Unger
called the ability to skip DCA
review a "loophole" that DCA was
attempting to close. He also stated
that DCA was lobbying the
Florida legislature to strike the
section from the Florida statutes so
local governments could not get
around the agency's review
process.
Commissioners did not express
much concern over following
DCA's request since the proposal
of establishing a USB once the
vision plan was adopted has never
been discussed.
Several commissioners stated
that evenif they wished to proceed
over the old statute, it would result
in years of litigation with DCA
since the state agency had made it
clear they did not want the county
to proceed in that manner. ,
Dr. Ken Hutchins, who has been
outspoken at previous meetings on
the Vision 2060 project about his
concern over how DCA will
interpret the vision once it


becomes part of county's comp
plan, was the only member of the
public to speak at the meeting.,
Hutchins said he was concerned
over subtle differences in the
language of the two statutes, and
he worried that the new statute
would allow DCA more control
over how the county implements
the vision.
Specifically, lie drew attention to
two sentences: "When a local
vision of the future has been
created, a local government should
review its comprehensive plan,
land development regulations, and
capital improvement program to
ensure that these instruments will
help to move the community
toward its vision in a manner
consistent with this act and with
the state comprehensive plan. A
local or regional vision must be
consistent with the state vision,
when adopted, and be internally
consistent with : the local or
regional plan of which it is a
component. The state land
planning agency shall not adopt

local or regional vision."
When asked if he had any
comment on the change, County
Attorney Conrad Bishop said he
did not.
Unger attempted to allay
concerns over the statutes, stating
that the new language was actually
less stringent on what must be,,
accomplished prior to a vision:
being adopted.
"Please understand that this
delay is for procedural conforming
purposes only, and does not affect

Unger said.

Artist 'lands' work at Springtime


Bill Holkham, an English watercolor artist living in Perry, will again
display his art in Tallahassee--this time at the 2008 Springtime Tallahassee
Jubilee in the Park, which is Saturday. This annual event begins at 9:30
a.m. and welcomes visitors until 5 p.m.
According to Holkham, he is "still enjoying painting local scenes as
well as aircraft which he has found to be quite popular in Florida. The
aircraft paintings have been appearing at air shows across the state,
generating a great deal of interest."
He adds, "The people of Perry have been very friendly and eager to talk
about my work."
In response to local requests, Holkham is considering offering a
workshop in Perry on how to paint with transparent watercolors "in the
typical English Watercolor style," he says.
Springtime Tallahassee, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary, is
expected to draw 200,000 visitors this weekend. For Jubilee in the Park,
in which Holkham's display will be featured, downtown streets are
transformed into a "giant outdoor market with more than 200 artists and
ctafters displaying their wares."
A parade at 10:30 a.m. Saturday kicks off the day's events at Monroe
Street and Thomasville Road.

Wow, fishing was tough over
the weekend....well at least
Saturday....I didn't have any
reports for Easter Sunday, as most
either decided to do "church" or
didn't report their catch.
Anyway, the North Florida Gulf
Fishing Club had 22 boats down
'from Tallahassee and they only
had three boats which weighed in
five-fish total weight! That is two
anglers on board each boat, 44
anglers (and some really .good
ones, let me tell you) and only 3
boats have five keeper trout!
Yikes! Mother Nature put a
whaxny on the keeper trout as,
every boat, including'me, caught
all the shorts they wanted....but


no keepers in most boats or very
few.
I had a party of three and we
brought in seven keepers with
three over 22 inches long with a
24 incher as our largest. However,
we caught the 3 larger trout right
on top of the high tide, in a 20'
minute span, long after the
NFGFC had already weighed in.
Ashley Mock of Warrior Inshore
Charters also caught some great
fish late..right on the high tide:
"I took Mike and Melanie
Ballinger from Woodstock, Ga.,
out Saturday and we only managed
eight Trout and three Reds with
Melanie catching her biggest trout
ever, at 25 inches weighing 5.1
pounds. She also caught a nice
26'-inch red."
"Tuesday of last week, I took
Gary and William Bates of
Albany, Ga., out and we landed 15
trout, with the top 10 weighing
29 pounds (we had three over 21
inches long). We caught all our
fish on jerkbaits (plugs) from. 2.5
feet of water."
Here are a few reports from the
marina:
Steve, William, Justin and
Harry Lyons of Phenix City, Ala.,
had 6 trout and nine blues
Saturday from 3-5 feet of water.
Durl and Patricia Baldree of
Lenox, Ga., fished from 1-5 feet
of water and brought in five trout
Saturday.
Earlier in the week, Scott and
Scotty Jones with Howard Gaston
of Dawsonville, Ga., fished three
days and landed 28 trout with the
largest a 24 inch sow trout from
3.5-5 feet of water using cut
pinfish.i.(shiner tails) and New
Penny Gulp under Caju'n

Preserving
L^^-^-1 *g^


When long-time Taylor County
Judge Ben Lindsey first began to
develop property along the coast
here in the 1950s, he may have
been well before his time. '
But now, a half-century later,
Lindsey's vision of a quaint coastal
community is coming to .fruition.
The late judge's nephew and


niece--Bish Clark and his sister
Debbie Clark Casey--believe they
have come up with a coastal
development concept that their
Uncle Ben would be proud of.
The Preserve at Lindsey Island is
a low, impact, 92-acre development,
between Cedar and Dark islands.
Only about eight acres are


available for development. The
remaining acreage (74 acres) will
be held in conservation easement.
Those eight acres are divided
into 20 single-family lots. Seven of
the lots are gulf front while the
remaining 13 lots will be marsh
front and gulf view.
"The goal of The Preserve at


The Ppr-ve at Linseyr slantd
The Preserve at Lindsey Island is a low impact, 92-acre development between Cedar and
Dark islands. Only about eight acres are available for development. The remaining acreage (74
acres) will be held in conservation easement. Developers say that "this island will provide an
excellent place for nature walks, bird-watching and walking dogs." Other than the community
boat dock, there will be no other development on the middle, 2-acre. island. It will be left in
a natural state for the enjoyment of the property owners of The Preserve at Lindsey Island.


Lindsey Island is, to protect the
ecology and preserve the current
ambiance of the area as much as
possible, while offering relatively
large single-family home lots,"
Clark said.
Clark said the canal behind the
lots will be maintenance-dredged
so that it will keep about 18 inches
of water in it even at low tide.
A dock will be constructed in the
canal, leading up to what is called
the middle island for the use of the
marsh, front property owners.
"A golf cart will accompany the
sale of each marsh front lot for the
purpose of accessing the boat
dock," Clark said.
Other than the community boat
dock, there will be no other
development on the middle, 2-acre
island: It. will be left in a natural
state for the enjoyment of the
property owners of The Preserve at
Lindsey Island.
"This island will provide an
excellent place for nature walks,
bird-watching and walking dogs,"
Clark said.
Although the road will be paved
onto Lindsey Island, it will only be
wide enough for one-way traffic,
so there will be no more filling of
the marsh than what has already
taken place.
In order to enhance the hydration
of the marsh and the flow of the
canal behind Lindsey Island, there
will be several extra culverts
placed under the road and also
several connecting the canal on the
north and south end of the island,
he said.
"The Gulf and surrounding
marsh afford countless


opportunities for the observation of
our local bird population,
including everything from Blue
Herons, Snowy Egrets, ospreys,
hawks and eagles to
hummingbirds," Clark said.


.He noted that ye.ir-ic-und

The year 2060 is some 50 years
away, but just what Taylor County
might look like in that faraway
date has been the subject of almost
a year 'of meetings, studies and
discussions as communities
gathered to decide where they
would like to see the county go.
In an effort to .prepare a "road
map" for Taylor County over the.
next 50 years, the Perry-Taylor


I


County Chamber of Commerce
joined together with several
community partners for a shared.
visioning project by which to guide
the county. '
Chamber officials. called the
project a "super-charged" version
of the Vision: 2010 project

preparing to undertake its own
vision project, officials said. They
decided to instead work together
with other partners, including the
Taylor County Development
Authority, on, one plan for the
whole county. The chamber then
contacted MSCW, a firm in
Orlando which had conducted a
number of similar studies around
the state.
Utilizing a public participation
process overseen by the chamber
of commerce, a Vision Task Force
was created and four .sub-
committees established.
After almost 10 months of
meetings, the task force and
MSCW examined current trends as
well as projected development
patterns, which they used to create
a Shared Vision Plan.
That plan offers a glimpse into a
possible future for Taylor
County and outlines preferred
development practices and
locations including a visual map of
the county.
According to the'-shared vision
plan document, the design is based
on the hierarchy of place and
community types, which is
"designed as an alternative to
piecemeal planning and will
discourage urban sprawl within the
county.
"The hierarchy of place provides
standards of mixtures of residential
and non-residential land uses,
building form and size, permanent
open space, protected conservation
land and wildlife corridors."
The plan uses three district
types--urban, coastal and rural--
and each "must be planned in the
form of complete and integrated
neighborhoods, containing
housing, shops, workplaces,
schools, parks and civic facilities
essential to the daily life of
residents," the plan states.
The plan includes an urban
center'based in and around Perry,
with a corridor of development
between Keaton Beach and
Steinhatchee, inland from County
Road 361.


The map graphically represents solutions recommended by the task
preferred patterns of land use in force and its committees.

A subsidiary of one of the
'country's largest power producing
companies has signed. a letter of
intent that' could lead to the
purchase of various agreements
from the partners in Taylor Energy
Center (TEC).
Southern Power, a subsidiary of
Atlanta-based Southern Company,
and the four TEC partners all
signed the agreement late in 2007.
The TEC partners--Tallahassee,
JEA, Reedy Creek and Florida
Municipal Power Association--
killed plans to construct a $1.5
billion coal-fired power plant on
the 3,200 acre site just east of
Buckeye earlier this year.
Under the new agreement,
Southern Power would pay $3.9
million to the TEC partners to take
over agreements with Buckeye and
Foley Timber and Land Company
that include purchase of the land as
well as a deal to utilize wastewater
from Buckeye's pulping process as


cooling waters..
* Southern Power Spokesman
Mike Tyndall said Southern Power
has not historically built nuclear
plants but is not ruling out any
options for the site.
* "Southern Power is considering
options other than coal. Those
would include combined-cycle
generating units fueled by natural
gas," he said.
Tyndall said natural gas-fired
power plants are generally built in
300 megawatt "blocks." The cost
of such units generally runs about,
$300 million.
Last year, Southern Company
canceled plans to construct, a coal-
fired 285-megawatt integrated
gasification combined cycle
(IGCC) facility at the Stanton
Energy Center near Orlando, citing
"continuing uncertainty
surrounding potential state
regulations relating to greenhouse
gas emissions."


Construction of, a gas-fired
combined cycle generating facility
will proceed as originally planned
at the Stanton site.
According to a company press
release, Southern 'Company

gasification technology and
believes it' has the potential to be

Curving around those land uses,
southeast of Perry westward to
Highway 98, is the "regional
employment center." A second is
located north of town between-
U.S. 19 and U.S. 221.
SMany of the new development
types specifically refer .to the
boast.
E The "coastal village," a medium
d- ensity land use and primarily
consisting of residential uses,
extends between Keaton Beach
ind Steinhatchee, with a "coastal
pillage center" located in the
hiiddle.
SExisting coastal areas, such as
keaton Beach, Dekle Beach and.. -
Steinhatchee, are labeled
coastal settlements for limited
expansions.
Representatives from MSCW,
have stressed that the proposed.
$nd-use types include various
hnixes of residential, commercial
and other uses. Development in the
rest of the county, labeled


collectively as the rural area,
would continue as before, but
incentives will be offered to cluster
developments to prevent sprawl.
After gaining the unanimous
support of the Vision Task Force,
the plan was presented to both the
Taylor County Planning Board and
county commission, which
approved it. The next step for the
plan is for the commission to
transmit the vision to the Florida
Department of Community Affairs
for approval as part of the county's
comprehensive -lan
At that point, the plan would
serve as a reference guide for
future development, but would not
hold any regulatory control.
In the future, as the commission
decides, they could transmit
additional amendments to take
parts of the vision and insert them
into the comprehensive plan's
regulatory sections. Similarly, the
county's land development codes
could be updated by the
commission to include parts of the
vision plan.

Members of the development team for The Reserve at Sweetwater
Estuary are optimistic that recent meetings with state officials in
Tallahassee will'resolve issues related to the project.,
The Reserve is the latest coastal development proposed by noted St.
Petersburg physician Dr. J. Crayton Pruitt on his 4,000 acres between
Keaton and Dekle beaches. ,:
Last year, plans to build a similar project -- the $700 million Magnolia
Bay Marina & Resort -- were shelved after state and federal officials
objected to the marina basin and channel into the gulf.
So, last fall, Pruitt instructed his staff to re-draw the project to eliminate
the marina and channel, and add an 18-hole golf course.
According to Project Environmental Specialist Beverly Birkitt, the new
project .will feature .624 condominium units, an 874-unit hotel, some
single-family housing and 280,000 square feet of commercial space.
The new project has not run into as many roadblocks as the last
proposal.
The Suwannee River Water. Management District staff has
recommended that an environmental resource permit for The Reserve be
approved, but that process is currently on hold pending the resolution of
issues with the Florida Department of Community Affairs.
"As a result of the applicant's (Pruitt's) efforts during the ongoing project,
review, direct and secondary wetland impact.avoidance and minimization
efforts are considered adequate to meet rule criteria. The project is not


contrary to the public interest," district staff wrote in the permits
application.
According to SRWMD, wetland impacts on the project were reduced-'
from 134 acres to 44 acres.
The applicant (Pruitt) proposes to mitigate by a combination of wetland :
creation (5.5 acres), preservation (230 acbrs), hydrologic enhancement
(20.4 acres) arid the purchase of mitigation bank credits, according to the
district.
"The proposed mitigation more than replaces the functional lossZ
associated with the project," the staff report says.
According to the permit application, phase I of the development consists
of the construction and operation of a commercial and residential
waterfront development on 64 acres, and the "conceptual" approval of an
18-hole golf course and associated commercial and recreational-
development on 200 acres.
"We have reduced the wetlands impact substantially and integrated.
everything to provide better protection to the wetlands," Birkitt said. -
She said extensive boardwalks will be located throughout theE
development as well as a kayak launch, an observation tower and kiosks
adjacent to some of the historic Confederate salt works located on the :
property.
"Our golf course is being designed in order to be certified by Audobon
International," Birkitt said.

MINI DENTAL IMPLANT

SYSTEM

How can mini dental implants help denture wearers?
The Mini Dental Implant System calls for four of the
1.8 mm mini dental implants, which are about the size
of wooden toothpicks, to be gently placed into the
front of the patient's lower jaw. It is a relatively
painless procedure that Dr. Morgan can
perform, usually only requiring a mild anesthesia. Your
denture is then carefully adjusted by the dentist to allow
it to snap onto the four mini implants. The result? A
tight fitting, completely reliable system, that allows you
to speak and eat with confidence. All performed in
about two hours, then you may go out and enjoy your
favorite lunch. .

\\ hereas the building spree in Taylor County has experieficed a
downward trend, the value of new residences in the community has
ineeased substantially.
SDannN Griner, building official for the county, reports 40 single family
dwellings were constructed in 2007, which is down from 50 in 2006 and
from 62 in 2004.

Taylor County in 2003 was $88,875.41, compared to the 2007 average
value of $141,845.20.
"Projecting for 2008 would be too speculative at this time," he
admits.
.At City Hall, five residential permits were pulled in 2003, valued at
$788,839. Last year, that total increased to eight, and the valuation to
$1,104,653.


Enterprise Zone:


Incentives top

$470,000
Taylor County businesses using the Florida Enterprise Zone Program.
(FEZP) have received incentives totalling $470,000 in 2007, County,:
Extension Director Clay Olson said.
"The Zone is basically a way for businesses to recoup sales tax paid on:
building materials and business equipment," said Olson.
"It can also be used to generate a job tax credit, again taken against sales
tax or Florida corporate taxes paid."
Olson credited the expansion at Lance for the high total seen last year,
with a "large return for Lance for jobs taken out of corporate taxes."
The FEZP was enacted to provide companies who are willing to invest
in "productive business enterprises located in severely distressed areas,'
with appropriate tax benefits and regulatory relief," Olson said.
Incentives averaged some $200,000 per year when the program started-:
in 1997, but the totals have topped $300,000 for the past three years, he..:
added.
'Since its inception in 1997, we have received about $3 million in:-
incentives back to the community."
The state recently extended the program for an additional 10..
years.
Following the net ban in 1996, then State Representative Allen Boyd.'
was instrumental in getting legislation passed to designate eight additional
state enterprise zones for net ban-affected communities, with Taylor:
County being one.
Local businesses which have used the program to date include RDS,-,
American Aluminum, Buckeye, Gilman Building Products, Winn Dixie,
Save-a-Lot, Citizens Bank, Capital City Bank, Sport-Craft, Lance, CDI,
Lynn Construction, Weiss Building Products, Pizza Hut, DeYoung and"
Dickey Construction, Steinhatchee Landing, Sea Hag Marina, Chaparral:
Inn, Days Inn, Ware Oil, Hampton Inn, Timberland Ford, Badcock.
Furniture, South House, Clark Oil, McDonalds, Subway, CVS, Cato's,
Rosehead, United Welding, Wal-Mart, Ugly Boats, Pepsi as well as those.
private individuals doing home renovations or new construction located in.,-
the zone.
In 2007, some 15 homeowners received incentives for new home*
construction.
Olson said that Taylor County receives more state incentives than "most.
rural counties and a lot of highly populated counties."
To date, the state has designated 53 enterprise zones.
Workshops are held at the Perry/Taylor County Chamber of Commerce_
monthly for those interested in finding out how to take advantage of Zone.
incentives, determiniing eligibility and the application process.

New i for OLD DEPOT
i^ c-J


A prime piece of real estate both
in historical value and location has
been given new life thanks to the
efforts of MainStreet Perry and the
city.
The Old Depot, strategically
located at the south entrance of
downtown Perry, has seen more


than $200,000 in refurbishments
under the care of MainStreet.
When the historical preservation
funds used for those improvements
appeared to be in jeopardy,
MainStreet decided to put
the historic building on the
market for a bargain price of


$30,000...and the City of Perry
came -forward to purchase the
property and continue the
restoration effort.
"Our goal is continue what Main.
Street has started and make the Old
Depot an asset to the downtown
area," City Manager Bob Brown


said.
Early plans call for using the '
building as an "incubator" for:
small business start-ups.
It will also house offices for use-"'
by MainStreet and, possibly, a -'
railroad retrospective and' -
museum.

create a plan that guides future
decisions that protect, sustain, arid
enhance our quality of life," has
brought this year-long effort to a
point where it is being presented to

Benefit fishing tournament


Beware what strikes


From within

I said in my review last year for "1408," based on the
Snovella by Stephen King, that while the prolific horror
: author is one of the most celebrated and successful
writers today, theatrical adaptations of his works vary
widely in terms of quality.
I went on to say that the movie, starring John
Cusack, was a rare example of one of his horror stories
Working well as a movie. I also admitted a bit of
surprise, since it is his work'in other genres, such as
Sthe -celebrated films. "Shawshank Redemption" and
"The Green Mile," that tend to work best.
I repeat this now because I have to admit I was more
Than a little curious to see if lightning could strike
Twice in one year with November's release of "The
Mist," another King adaptation.
While the film may not leave everyone satisfied, it
does serve an example of how to correctly handle
King's works. Perhaps it should not come as too big a
surprise that this movie's director, Frank Darabont,
was responsible for the aforementioned "Shawshank
Redemption" and "The Green Mile."He also wrote the
screenplays for all three.
"The Mist," from what I've determined, is one of his
fans' most cherished stories from his early novellas. In
Sit, a group of townspeople are trapped in a "mom and
Spop" grocery story when a thick mist overtakes the
Area. Strange as the
weather may seem,
it is not until.
somebody runs
screaming and
Bloody out of the'
Smist, telling tales of
sounds and screams,
That they realize
something much
more sinister is at
play.
As the danger
becomes more
obvious and people
start.to die, they are
cut off from the rest
of the world and left
to wonder whether
there still is a world
behind the mist.
Soon, the remaining
friends and B l ....
neighbors begin to
Sturnon one another
as they struggle to
find a reason for it
all;.
Like many of
King's stories--
although I have to
admit I have not
Spread nearly as many
as I make it sound--
"The Mist" is less
about the, well...
mist (or the
creatures contained
inside), and more
About the people in the store.
We have David Drayton (Thomas Jane), an artist
who went into town with his son (Nathan Gamble) and
his cantankerous neighbor Brent (Andre Braugher) to
pick up supplies after the previous night's storms
Damaged both their houses.
We have Ollie the store clerk, a schoolteacher,
several of the town's resident drunks, a local solider
from a nearby military base visiting his girlfriend and
more. We also have Mrs. Carmody (Marcia Gay
Harden), the local busybody/rabble-rouser (more on
her in a bit).
Basically, we have the kind of people that may find
themselves in a small, local grocery store at any given
time of the day. It's the kind of people we see everyday
of our lives, passing them in the streets or in the store.
We don't give them a second thought as they blend
into the scenery of our day. And that's where they
Remain, until the day we make a dimple trip to the
grocery store and find ourselves trapped by a
mysterious fog and the deadly secrets it holds. It is
then that the cankerous neighbor becomes dangerously
suspicious of you because of a previous
misunderstanding. It is then that the people begin to
listen to the crazy old woman that they ignored before.
It is a time when the fears, hatreds and suspicions that
-- at any other time--we keep hidden and under control
boil up to surface for all to see.
I think King succeeds as much as he does because he
can see the worst in people, or at least their potential.
He has made a living by studying (in his mind and on
paper) what human beings will do to each other under
stress. And it appears that he has come to realize that
the real monsters are not always the creatures hiding
out in the dark, but the ones hidden in the dark corners
of our souls.
Okay, enough about Stephen' King, you say, what
about the movie?
Well, Darabont has proved he can handle more
serious films and I credit much of the success of "The


1 'The Mist'

Mist" navigation through his first foray into horror.
As with his other films, he handled the screenwriter
task and models King's novella into a tight,
claustrophobic two hours. Thanks to the story itself,
Darabont is able, to play with our usual fears of the
dark and turn them on their head. In "The Mist," it is
not darkness but the impenetrable white mist that hides
the deadly creatures. While the night can be cut
through with a flashlight, the mist cannot.
As almost the entire film takes place in the grocery
store, Darabont made the genius move to hire the same
film crew ivorking on the FX series "The Shield," who
were used to working in cramped spaces. The result is
a fast-paced editing style that works well with the
story, and make the most of the.small set.
When the special effects were added into many of
these fluid and moving camera shots, it added a much
needed sense of realism to some of the more
outlandish scenes. The crew uses a good mix of
computer, generated effects and animatronics to make
everything feel believable and organic. I
On'top of everything, the acting is pretty solid as
well. Thomas Jane's character is forced to carry much
of the action as a father trying to console his son while
desperately wanting to find his wife whom he had left
at home before the mist arrived.
Jane is
surrounded by a
cast of mostly
unknowns and
veteran character
actors, who all do
h great job in
feeling real
(especially Toby
Jones as Ollie).
Andre Braugher,
usually a great
actor, missteps a
bit as his character
transitions from
aloof neighbor to
paranoid outsider,
but the story
requires the
transition to
happen quickly, so
he wasn't given
much choice.
'And then we
wol have e Mrs.
Carinody. As the
fears continue to
grow among those
in the store, Mrs.
Carmody slowly
transforms from
the town
busybody to
someone, through
her own vile
nature and
misguided views
on. religion,
becomes a
magnetic figure who may just tear everything apart.
Marcia Gay Harden's portrayal of Mrs. Cirmody may
cross the line into overacting a part, and walks a very
tight rope over becoming a simple caricature of the
role.
Some have said the role is an attack on Evangelical
Christians because of Mrs. Carmody's use of the Bible
to sanction the things she does. I disagree to a point.
While she is.definitely someone who is using religion
for the worst possible reason, the movie does show
early on that she is just a mean-spirited person who is,
just as scared as everyone else. It is how she deals with
that fear hoivever, and I think that is more an
indictment of her character rather than the religion she -
abuses.
Finally, I will warn you that some, maybe many, will
not like the film's ending. No, I will not tell you what
it is. I can say the ending isn't the same as the original
story. According to an interview I read with Darabont,
he wrote the script with the new ending without telling
King what it was before giving it to him to read. King's
reply: "If I had thought of that, that's probably how I
would have ended it." That's good enough for me.
Overall, while true fans of horror may find some
sections of this film slow, and others falling into some
of horror's more overused traditions, Darabont
provides a good mix of terror and physiological
character studies to make a solid film for the genre.
You may however, keep a closer eye on those you
pass the next time you go to the grocery store.
The film is rated R for.violence, terror and gore, and
language.
The film has beenreleased on DVD in a single disc
version and a two-disc "Collector's Edition."
Both versions include a commentary track with
Darabont (which is big, because he has not been
known to have these on his previous releases), eight
deleted scenes and a number of featurettes. The
collector's edition has a black and white version of the
film.


It all began with legendary
country music star and entertainer
Mel Tillis reading a small ad in a
fishing magazine looking for a
great place to go fishing.-
Since then, many kids in need
have received help and are about to
get it again as Mel Tillis and
Friends look forward to the second
"Mel Tillis and Friends Fishing
Tournament."
Mel Tillis, the "king of country
music and comedy," has once
again partnered with the
Steinhatchee River Development
Corporation to host the "Mel Tillis
and Friends Fishing Tournament"
at Gulfstream Marina in
Steinhatchee.
"Mel has invited other major
country stars along with sports
figures and actors" said Susan
Parker, tournament coordinator.
"Mel tries to fish out of Gulfstream '
Marina often, and the community
is excited about hosting the event
again this year.
"This year we are adding some
additional fundraising events to
help raise more money for the
children," explained Co-
Tournament Coordinator Sheila
Greene.
"We are raffling a 2007 Triton
boat with a 50hp Mercury motor
and Road King galvanized trailer
courtesy of Millers Boating Center
of Ocala. Tickets are available for
a $10 donation. New this year will
be a sponsorship program guide
available free to all who attend the
event; for advertising call me at
352-256-4697," said Greene.
Contestants can pre-registrator
by mail; on-site registration begins

Gulfstream Marina.
The Mel Tillis and Friends

by the Mel Tillis and Friends
Concert at 8 p.m. featuring Tillis

Tillis will draw the winner of the
boat at 10 p.m.
Ted Ensminger will once again
be serving as the tournament
director and as guest emcee for the
combined inshore and offshore
fishing event.
"Ted brings. with him over 30
years of tournament experience
with over 500 events to his credit.
We're fortunate to have him and his
staff as part of our event again,"
said Parker.
Event organizers are predicting
more than 400 anglers will
participate in the tournament with



SmpnMe








as many as 3,000, people
participating in the entire weekend.
"It's sure to be a fantastic event,"
continues Parker, "Mel has invited
his friends; there is no telling who
might be here. Fasten your seat
belts; this has the potential to be
one heck of a weekend."
"'It's gonna be a great weekend,
loads of fun, but I don't want
anybody to forget the real reason
we're doing all of this, and that of


course, is to raise money to help


the kids," said Greene.
"All of the proceeds from this
event will go to our friends at their
Shriner's Hosptials for Childref
and a donation to the local:
Steinhatchee School.
"Now I have ask you. what
better reason is there to bring folks:
together for a great time?" asked
Greene.
The entire weekend is intended
for the entire family. -

Looking


Back


B-4 Perry News-Herald


March 28-29, 2008


Taken in the 1920s, these photos depict the grounds of the historic Burton-Swartz Cypress Mill. Sarah Joyce Griner
Jackson, whose family moved here in 1914, said she believes the top photo shows the Burton-Swartz Hotel under construction.
The ladies featured in the bottom photo sitting on the edge of.the goldfish pond and fountain are (I to r) Sim Griner Patterson
and Sally Greene, the wife of Dr. Ralph Greene. The identify of the third lady is unknown.




Burton-Swartz Hotel



Luxurious accommodations in a sawmill town


Editor's Note: While the photos
above give us a visual impression of
the lavish grounds of Burton-Swartz,
this recollection by the late
Sam Register takes us inside the
hotel (shown being built in the top
photo).
The "Burton-Swartz Hotel" was,
for the times, somewhat luxurious,
especially when viewed as a
sawmill entity.
It was a two-story cypress
lumber constructed building, with
at least three suites, one used by
and reserved for Mr. E. G. Swartz,
who had a home in New Orleans,
the company vice president and
general manager, one for Mr. W. S.
Burton, the company president,
who had a home in Long Island,
New York, a frequent visitor along
with his wife, and one for the hotel
manager and family.
The dining room was also
especially noteworthy. The
tables were always covered with
crisp, fresh linens, and
highly polished silverware.
And the food was exceptionally


good.
I can attest to all I have said,
because my bride, Mary, and I
lived two years at the Hotel
following our marriage in 1934.
We may have been the first of
several newlywed couples to live
there which gave rise to it being
often referred to as the
"Honeymoon Hotel."
And, perhaps Perry and Taylor
County's "social event of the
century" took place in the hotel
dining room, and lobby, when
Miss Lucy Lee Ellis, daughter of
Dr. J. C. Ellis, the company's
resident physician, married Mr.
Robert Klocppell, Jr., whose father
was Florida's "Conrad Hilton" of
the era, being the owner and
operator of several of the state's
better known hotels.
The marriage took place in the'
Methodist Church on North
Jefferson Street, followed by the
reception, in which the Burton-
Swartz Hotel facilities were
olilized.
Mr, Klocppell's "flag ship" was


the George Washington Hotel, in
Jacksonville (no longer in
existence), from which he brought
over the elegant old hotel's Maitre
De', chef and staff, to supervise
and prepare the food and
Refreshments in keeping with the
singular event.
People came from far and near
bearing gifts, and the champagne
"flowed like wine" during the
reception.
I am not sure just how it
happened, but some of the local
invitees were known to leave the
party with a bottle or two of
champagne tucked under their
arms.
This may have been with the
urging and assent of the host, since
I find it hard to believe that any of
the guests would resort to
pilferage, even though plenty was
available and a few bottles
"wouldn't be missed."
At any rate, it was a memorable
occasion and one of the guests
said, "Perry 'ain't never seen
nothing like this."


THE TACO TIMES
March 22, 1973

NO MORE VALEDICTORIAN,
SALUTATORIAN AT TCHS?
Taylor County High School
announced that it would nb longer
select a valedictorian or
salutatorian, as part of a new
honors system which was
scheduled to be put in place for the
next school year.
Apparently, the controversy ran
deep in school system. A
committee of guidance counselors,
teachers and administrators was
appointed to review the old system
of awarding more points for an
"A" in trigonometry than an "A" in
physical education. A new, across-
the-board, grading system was
recommended,' with all "A's"
weighted the same.
In like manner, the new system
would divide students into three
categories: summa cum laude,
magna cum laude-and cum laude,
and do away with the top two
honors.

TWENTY-FIVE DEER
RELEASED IN BOYD
County commissioners gathered
for the release of 25 deer in the
Boyd Wildlife Management Area.
A lone deer was photographed
with W.D. Wilson, Bert Fife, Jack
Bodiford, Shelton Edwards and
Drexel Agner. These releases were
sponsored by the Perry
Sportsman's Club to boost Taylor
County's dwindling population.

TOP DOLLAR DRAWS
TOP CROWDS
Some 1500 people gathered for
the grand opening of the newly
located Top Dollar store on South
Washington Street.

GREETING PROGRAM
GETS THE NOD
The newly organized greeting
program for newcomers to the
community was kicked off by the
Perry-Taylor County Chamber of
Commerce in conjunction with
Beta Sigma Phi sorority. Henry
Davis, Peggy Sisk, Mrs. Andy
Bowdoin and Mrs. John Paul
Smith were pictured with gift
packages which included coupon
booklets.

SPORTCRAFT SOLD
TO N.C. FIRM
The long-rumored sale of Sport-
Craft, Inc., to a Charlotte, N.C.,
firm was officially concluded,
according to Vice President John

BASEBALL BULLDOGS
ARE ON FIRE!
The TCHS' Bulldog Baseball
team pushed their record to 7-1
with a pair of wins over Jasper and
Santa Fe. John Wigglesworth and
the Ratliff Brothers--Glenn and
Sebe--were credited with a hitting
spree which overcame Jasper 13-2
and Santa Fe 7-3. "We're getting
good pitching, consistent hitting
and sharp fielding," explained
Coach Lawrence Holt. "When you
do that, you're pretty hard to
handle."

In the summer of
2007, Steinhatchee
was named one of the
first 30 communities
in the country to be
labeled a Playful City
USA.
The nonprofit group
KaBOOM!, which
made the designation,
advocates for a "place
to play within walking
distance of. every child in
America."
Playful City USA is a national
recognition program designed "to
offer towns and cities clear
benchmarks for creating an agenda
on play that is supported by local
government and citizens alike,"
according to the organization's
Web site.
Beyond national recognition as a
Playful City USA, selected
communities will also receive:
recognition highway signs,
"Municipality's Guide to Being
Playful," the "Play Day" toolkit," a
wall-mouhted recognition plaque,
asI well as -growth--' award:a,:
opportunities and other special
incentives throughout the year.
As part of the designation, plans
are underways for a playground at
the 'Steinhatchee Community
Center called Ft. Steinhatchee.
Plans for the proposed
pl ground call for it to be
deigned to resemble a fort in
which children will be able to play

The county has also applied for a
stt'e grant to. help expand the
project as part of ongoing efforts.to
upgrade the Steinhatchee
Community Center, expanding the
parking lot, part of which will be
used for a basketball court and
volleyball court, as well as security
lighting and additional fencing
along the roadway.
A second grant calls for
improvements to the old. bridge

Complex, located on U.S. 19 just
north of Perry, opened its gates in
2006 and is'now the home of the
Perry' Soccer Association as well
as the city flag and tackle football
leagues.
With lighting available on all of
the fields, the various leagues are
able to host games further into the
year than they had before as the
days grew shorter.
Construction on the facility was
funded through .both local dollars
as well as a number of state grants.
Phase 1 from the project included
three regulation soccer fields
along with three youth-league
fields, parking and playground
facilities.
In February and March of 2008,
work began on. tennis and
basketball courts as well as
restrooms at the complex.
The county is expected to begin
work later this year on Phase 2 of
the complex, which includes the
addition of eight baseball

Taylor County's Hotel.Hampton was a national vacation destination from its opening in 1908 until mid-1920s.


Hotel Hampton burned to the ground in


HAMPTON
Continued from page 1
'By the 1950s, the hotel held only
a glimmer of its former glory and
in 1954, its chapter was closed for
good when the structure caught fire
and burned to the ground.
Due to the hotel's local and
regional significance, Taylor
County has received grants
through the Bureau of Historical


Resources for the past five years to
assist in archaeological efforts
underway at the site.
Over that time, Taylor County
Grants Coordinator' Melody Cox
has worked .with archaeologist
Ross Morrell, Florida's first state
archaeologist and former Director
of the Florida Division of
Historical Resources.
As the project has progressed,
the hotel's pool and footbaths, as


well as the fountain, were
excavated and stabilized. Then the
entire foundation was examined
along with the railroad depot.
In 2008, the focus has moved to
the hotel's golf course and farm.
In addition to the historical
investigation, work is also
underway to convert the site into a
recreational park for the future.
Already, sidewalks and picnic
tables have been added to the hotel


The spring at Hotel Hampton site (left) still bubbles up water to the the pool, 54 years after
thO hotel burned to the ground. Little else remains of the once regal structure. A tree root
(right) has grown over a former foundation footer near the hotel's power plant.

site as well as bathroom facilities.
A new bridge has been constructed
over the creek to provide access for
paths. A new entrance was built in
2007, corresponding with the
hotel's original entrance.
Across Hampton Springs Road
are 52 acres donated to the park by
the Taylor County Development
Authority where the golf course
was located. It is here that a series
of equestrian trails and camping is
planned. A large parking area and
the trail head have already been
constructed at the site.
When the project is completed,
historical markers will be placed
throughout the park to educate
visitors on the hotel's history and
remains.
And as work continues to
unearth the history of the hotel's
first 100 years, soon a new chapter
will open for Hampton Springs.


B-3 Progress 2007 March 28, 2008:


Pines and oaks


shade golfcourse


With many recent improvements, Perry M/r
Golf and Country Club has become one of the
most challenging small courses in North Florida.
Several years ago, the course rebuilt all of its greens to
United States Golf Association standards.
The well-bunkered new greens are not only beautiful,
they can be extremely challenging with numerous
undulations and subtle breaks.
The fairways are lined by sky-scraping pines, grand-
daddy oaks and numerous second-growth trees.
The course plays to a challenging par 70 and features
three par fives, five par threes and 10 par four holes.
The semi-private facility is open year-round and
guests are welcome. The course is located about
five miles south of Perry off U.S. 98 west on Golf
Course Road.
For more information, drop by the club or
call (850) 584-3590.


Web site provides open access
As technology continues to become a larger part of everyday life, Taylor
County government is embracing that technology to improve residents'
access.
Now, many county departments, along with volumes of public data, are :
only a click away.
Located at www.taylorcountygov.com, the Taylor County government
Web site includes various resources including county commission meeting
agendas and budgets, minutes and supporting packets, as well as
information about building permits and regulations, code enforcement and
social services.
Added in 2007, the Web site now offers an interactive parcel data map
of the entire county. The system allows anyone to access information:,

Health clinics open for business


Two community health centers--
Taylor Medical Center and Taylor
Dental Center--have opened in
Perry "to serve the growing
numbers of residents who are
uninsured or have insurance but
cannot access a place of regular
healthcare."
Noting that healthcare reforms
have taken their toll on small
communities, Deidra McRory
Newman applauds these non-


profit, federally qualified health
centers for providing "quality,
affordable and, accessible health
and.denial care to the residents of
Taylor County. They are working
endlessly to improve the
healthcare status of the
underserved and vulnerable
population of Taylor County by
increasing access to
comprehensive, primary and
preventative medical and dental

new members join its
membership in 2007.
:"Each year we welcome new
members into our chamber

Taylor said.

care." Services are available for
children, adults and seniors who
would not otherwise be served, as
well as those who have insurance
and are able to pay. for their
medical care.
Newman. as marketing and
public relations director, suggests
that these centers eliminate the
need for more costly care such as
emergency room visits. "That
generates significant savings to the
entire healthcare system and frees
up the. emergency room for true
emergencies.
"It is estimated that in addition
to serving the insured of Taylor
County, the amount of services to
be provided by Taylor Medical and
Taylor Dental Centers to the
uninsured for 2008 is $351,303,"
she said.
"Taylor Medical Center is also
able to waive the annual Medicare
deductible for Medicare patients,
an additional estimated savings of
$30,000 to Taylor County residents
for 2008."
As federally qualified health


centers, both Taylor Medical and
Dental are able to offer services on
a sliding fee scale (based on gross
family income and size) to those
who do not have health insurance.
Taylor Medical Center also
participates in the 340B drug
discount programs in cooperation
with Andrews Drugs. This pricing
program was established in 1992
and enables community health
centers to purchase prescription
medications at greatly reduced
prices, passing along savings to
patients.
Dr. Thomas Reynolds has joined
dental hygienist Jodi Mills at
Taylor Dental. "He has dedicated
his life and career to serving the
underserved," Newman said.
At Taylor Medical, Joyce Dwyer
recently joined the ranks and is
"eager to make a difference in
Taylor County by expanding health.
care access."
Taylor Medical Center is located
at 1709 S. Jefferson St., and the
dental center is located at 409 E.
Ash St.


Recovery 'close to home'

Marshall Health and Rehabilitation Center has a mission, too, which
relates to its long-term and short-term services: "providing recovery close
to home."
The facility offers quality, skilled nursing services 24 hours a day along
with comprehensive rehabilitation services. Short-term "return to home"
stays are encouraged, while long-term elder care is offered "with a
commitment to superior customer service."
The center is located at 207 Marshall Drive, and is designated as a 120-
bed skilled nursing facility. For more information, please call 584-6334.

TOUR


in





history' s




footsteps


By ANGELA M. CASTELUCCI
Staff'Writer
History leaps from the sidewalks
in downtown Perry.
City hall is housed in a
century-old building and the
courthouse square echoes with the
bristling days of yore.
Visitors taking a walking tour of.
the area might be surprised to learn
that today's City Park was once the.
site of a sawmill and cotton gin
(circa 1913).
And although the offices for the
Chamber of Commerce were built
in 1962, the organization itself was
in existence as far back as 1925.
Pre-dating the chamber was the
Perry Woman's Club, organized in
1914. The club building, located
on North Jefferson Street, was
built in 1924.
Used for receptions, dances and
theatrical performances, the club
was also the "USO" headquarters
during World War II and once
housed the public library.
Around the corner, on
WaShington Street, you'll find the
"oTli jail" built in 1910.
The stately brick structure was a
working jail (with its own hanging
gallows) until 1956. It was used as
their public library from 1961-75
and is listed on the State Historical
Registry.
S Today, it hiime'to law firms of
Mike Smith and Conrad Bishop.
Fitrt United Methodist Church
traces its history to 1870 and
the5.present sanctuary, located
on :Jefferson Street, was built in
1917.
Across the street from the
church, you'll find the Greystone.
Built in 1904, the sprawling two-
story stone block home has 13
roOdif and an observation tower.
Thlciugh the years it has been both
a private residence, a hotel and
apartment house.
AChristmas Shoppe occupies
the'first floor of the building today
and tfe upstairs is transformed into
a "haunted house" every October.
The courthouse square is
centered around a relatively new
cou~ity seat--built in 1970.
Anchoring the four covers are
four.-storefronts each built in the
early 1900s.
Th- Taylor County Historical
Soqgcty was originally the Bank of
Penyi (1903) and, later, First
National Bank (1906-1930).
Thee second floor served as
offfS for attorneys W.B. Davis
and Claude Pepper during the
192Qs
DIbomed for demolition in 1971,
it was saved from the wrecking
ball; when county commissioners
leaked the building to members of
thel newly formed historical
society.
The O'Quinn Pharmacy building
was. constructed by Gulf Coast
Investment Compary around 1905.
The west half of the ground floor
,haS been used as a drug
stote/pharmacy since 1911.
Current owner Brenda' Wilson
purchased the building 1981 and it
remains in operation today as a
pharmacy arid gift shop.
A" Masonic emblem adorns the
topfloor of the old Perry Banking
Coiipafny building at the corner of
Main Street and Green; it's
neighbor across the way was home


to Bloodworth's, a pharmacy and
fountain started in 1904 by Perry
Franklin Bloodworth.
A company department store
was established in the Yarbrough
building at the corer of Green and
Main; later, Van H. Priest ran a
dime store at the location for a
number of years. In 1925, the
Brahdon Cigar Company was
located on the second floor.
Today, the ground floor is home
to restaurant Rosehead Junction.
A: little further down Green
Street is the old Dixie Taylor
Hofel, constructed in 1926. In the


B-7 Progress 2UU8 March 28, 2008


Turn-of-the-century homes, like the,J.C. Calhoun House on Quincy Street, grace the
downtown district.


1960s, much of the space was
converted to office space when it
was purchased by First Federal for
a banking establishment
First Federal's predecessor,
Capital City, operates the bank
today.
East Green Street is the site of
the Rawls building, built in 1914.
Perry's first public library was
located on the second floor of the
building, which through the years

square is the Spanish-tiled county
annex, formerly a post office.
Also not to be missed is
Katie's Courtyard, which offers a
welcoming retreat complete with
benches and picnic tables.


The Perry City Council meeting
room, located adjacent to City
Hall, was once the Union Bus
Station.

FAITH


While Baptist churches
outnumber those of other
denominations, Taylor County
offers a variety of worship
opportunities for those who seek
them.
There are 18 member churches
of the Taylor Baptist Association,
but in the immediate downtown
area, both the Baptists and the
Methodists have a dominant
influence. The Presbyterian,
Episcopal and Catholic
denominations are also
represented here, along with
Jehovah's Witnesses, Church(es)
of Christ, Church(es) of God,
Seventh Day Adventists and AME
congregations.
Beyond their stated church
missions, these congregations also
work together to provide food
baskets at holidays, staff the
Father's Storehouse (founded by,
First Baptist Church), and
contribute manpower and funding
to Relay For Life, the March of
Dimes, Refuge House, the Boys
and Girls Club, Gideons
International and the Fellowship
of Christian Athletes, to name a


In recent months, Campers on Mission have helped two local
churches with expansion and restoration projects.

Welcome





to paradise


If you enjoy hunting and fishing in the great outdoors, Taylor County
offers an abundance of opportunities year-round.
'Frrori September to April each year, hunters have an ample opportunity
ti track such big game as whitetail deer and wild hog as well as smaller
game like duck, quail, dove, rabbit, squirrel and turkey.
i: -More than 70,000 acres are open to the public for hunting each year with
"tie proper permits. Large-tract private hunting clubs also seek members to
5oin their ranks.
Fishing. both fresh and saltwater, entices anglers both young and old.
The numerous lakes, rivers and streams in Taylor County hold common
species such as largemouth bass, Suwannee bass, bluegill, shellcracker,
crappie and red bellys.
Fishing in the Gulf of Mexico offers even a greater variety of species.
The mo:sti popular inshore saltwater fish is by far the speckled trout with
tedfish claiming a close second.
: Near shore anglers can also catch flounder, mullet, Spanish mackerel;
0obia, jack cravelle, sailcat, pompano and an occasional tarpon.
_ Offshore anglers like to target gag grouper but also frequently harvest
red grouper, amberjack, king mackerel, dolphin, red snapper, shark,
pi nnmouths. sheepshead and barracuda.
.^ ^'.22S."

In addition to the wide range of
fishing opportunities available
along the Taylor County coastline,
July 1 each year marks the start of
scallop season, drawing thousands
of visitors who are lured here by
the Gulf delicacy.
Several areas along the coast
provide access to the tiny shellfish,
including Keaton Beach, Hagen's
Cove and Steinhatchee.
:Scallop season runs July 1
tliteigh Sept. 10.
The only items needed for a full
day -of scalloping are a boat, a
snorkel and mask, a mesh bag, a
diver's flag and a recreational


saltwater fishing license.
Scallops congregate in shallow
water, hidden in manatee and turtle
grass. At Hagen's Cove, hopefuls
can skip the boat and wade into
shallow waters in search of
scallops.
The individual catch limit is two
gallons of whole scallops or one
pint of meat. The boat limit is 10
gallons of whole scallops or one
half-gallon of meat.
Once back on land, intrepid
scallopers can clean their catch
(most marinas have ample
facilities), or hire someone to do it
for them.


Joyce Clark holds up a nice trout she caught off Keaton Beach. The Gulf of Mexico waters along the Taylor County coastline
offer a wide.variety of fish on which anglers can test their skills. The most popular inshore saltwater fish is by far the

After 40 years, Hickory Mound


still delivers nature's splendor


Scallops congregate in shallow water, hidden in manatee and
turtle grass.


Clear blue skies stretch into the
distance while the sharp bite of salt
water permeates the air.
Scenic clusters of palm trees and
pines dot the shoreline divided by a
winding expanse of roadway.
First established in 1968, the
Hickory Mound Impoundment is a
haven for wildlife and an
irresistible lure to fishermen and
crabbers alike.
Improvements to the
impoundment were officially
recognized Oct. 16,' 2007, when
members of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) and Ducks
Unlimited unveiled a sign at the
area commemorating the project's
partnerships.
The project was an upgrade of
the impoundment dike and water
control structures which are
intrinsic hallmarks of the wildlife
refuge.
"The reconstruction of the
impoundment dike was designed
to allow this structure, to withstand
a 50-year storm event by
drastically reducing the number of
breaches that have occurred in the
past," explained David Nicholson,
district biologist at the FWC Big
Bend Field Office in Perry.
The major portions of the
construction project included the
installation of two 1,000-foot
concrete geoweb spillways, four 5-


foot by 5-foot box culverts, one
aluminum water control structure,
and the placement of rip-rap
material along approximately


3,600 feet of the dike as
reinforcement in areas susceptible
to storm erosion in the past.
"These upgrades also give


biologists better control over the
flow of water into and out of the

highway drive? Tourist brochures
are urging travelers to pick "The
Loop" which showcases Taylor
County as well as Florida's longest
undeveloped coastline.

fishing villages, all filled with


friendly faces, and interesting
people." It encourages visitors "to
spend the night in a rustic fish
camp, a modern motel or
fashionable resort. Dine on the
freshest seafood money can buy.
"Treat yourself to a little salt-
water fishing, paddle the
Steinhatchee River or Dallus
Creek, kayak miles of undeveloped
coastline, view scores of bird


species, hike or bike a trail or just
relax and enjoy the quiet serenity
of a sleepy fishing village. The
experience will create moments
that will last a lifetime."
In 1-2-3 fashion, "The Loop"
takes travelers from the shops of
downtown Perry and the Forest
Capital Museum, to Keaton Beach
for camping, boating and
recreation,.then to Hagen's Cove


where picnicking and scalloping
dominate.
Next on the loop is Steinhatchee
for more fishing, birdwatching
or diving, resorts and restaurants.
Also featured are the Aucilla
River, Blue Spring Lake, the
Econfina River and Spring
Warrior.
SJust remember: when traveling,
do "The Loop."

impoundment, allowing FWC
staff to better manage waterfowl
and other wildlife species. This
increased management ability will


produce higher quality
recreational opportunities,"
Nicholson explained.
"Because of damage caused by
storms, as well as vandalism to the
water control structures, the
management of the area for


waterfowl had been greatly.
hampered. To combat this, in
2001, the FWC contracted with
Turnbull Environmental, Inc., to
develop a feasibility study for
upgrading the impoundment levee
to withstand a 50-year storm


FWC worked with Ducks Unlimited to develop management plan for Hickory Mound.


Recent rains could help

end drought conditions
So what's the weather like in Taylor County? Well, it's great. The annual
average temperature is 68.5 degrees.
S:Hot or co d
SYes, it gets hot in the summer but the Gulf of Mexico runs the entire
length of the county providing cooling breezes in the summer and
moderating ones in the cooler months. In addition to boasting 70 miles of
coastline, Taylor County also has an abundance of springs, lakes and
rivers.
- As for snow, it's a rarity in North Florida even though school children
here long for a "Snow Day."
Dry or weft?
Although Taylor County experienced drought conditions for much of ,' -
2007, rains in the early part of 2008 may change that trend.
In a typical year, the county averages 2.61 inches of rainfall in'January .. --
tW8.36 inches in July, for a total of some 50 inches by year-end. - -


event. The results of this study
were then used to develop
construction plans for the
upgrades," Nicholson said.
In April 2005, a contract was
awarded to Carter's Contracting
Services, Inc., of Andalusia, Ala.,
and construction began soon
thereafter.
"The problems with storms
continued," Nicholson said, "In
July 2005, when construction was
about one-third completed and the
impoundment was in a vulnerable
state, Hurricane Dennis made
landfall in Pensacola. Although
this storm remained well offshore
of the Big Bend region, its path
and strength resulted in
considerable damage from tidal
surge all along the Big Bend coast.
Tidal surge'at the impoundment'
was estimated to be more than 9
feet and resulted in extensive
damage."
As a result of the damage.and an.,
active hurricane season,,
construction was suspended until
hurricane season ended. FWC
worked with FEMA to recover
some funds for repairs, and
Anderson Columbia assisted by
providing a storage location for
the excess material and debris
removed from the dike.
Construction was completed in
June 2006, and the area re-opened
to the public for recreational use.
FWC worked with Ducks
Unlimited to draft an
updated management plan
for the impoundriment that still
focuses on waterfowl habitat but
also takes into account wading
birds, blue crabs and the marine
fishery to maximize the area's
potential.
"Even though the upgrades to
the impoundment have not been
tested by tropical'systems, we feel
this project .is a success.
Vandalism has been minimal,. and.
the new water control structures
are operating efficiently," <.,,
Nicholson said.
"This is a great resource for the
visitors and residents of Taylor4 .
County."
