With January's Amendment I
property tax reforms entrenched in
Florida's constitution, the Taylor
County Commission met Monday
for an early budget workshop to
prioritize county programs for the
upcoming year as commissioners
face revenue reductions both
locally and from the state.
According to County'
Members of the North Florida
Community College (NFCC)
District Board of Trustees voted
unanimously Tuesday to
discontinue intercollegiate athletic
programs for ,the 2008-09 school
year due to anticipated budget
reductions--which could negate a
letter of intent signed by local
athlete Tiffany Ragans last Friday.
Ragans, a senior at Taylor
County High School, was the first
athlete from here to sign with the
college. She was to play on the
NFCC women's fast pitch softball
As of presstime Thursday,
NFCC officials were looking at
possibly honoring the nearly one
dozen scholarships offered to area
students, including Ragans. A
decision on the matter was
expected by Monday.
In a communication to the
NFCC campus following the
board action, President Morris G.
Steen Jr. said, "It was an agonizing
decision but the college had no
other option given the budget
reductions we are facing."
Administrators anticipate a
revenue reduction of more than
$590,000 next year. The athletic
budget was $473,773 of NFCC's
$8.9 million total budget for 2007-
In remarks to the board, Steen
".* Please see page 3
Administrator Jack Brown, the
county is expecting a $600,000
reduction in revenue due to
Amendment I reforms. That
amounts to approximately six
percent of the county's annual ad
valorem tax revenue.
In the language passed by the
legislature last fall placing the
amendment on January's primary
election ballot, however, a clause
was included which would have
the state "make up" the lost
revenue for fiscally constrained
counties, including Taylor.
When Gov. Charlie Crist
announced his budget in January,
he recommended $26.2 million in
recurring funds for that purpose,
but not to begin until July 2009.
"Although we appreciate the
acknowledgment of the impact of
Amendment 1 on Florida's fiscally
constrained counties, waiting until
July of 2009 to offset the revenue
reductions will cause unnecessary
budget turmoil during Fiscal
Year 2008-09--only to be
turned-around in Fiscal Year 2009-
2010," Small County Coalition
Splash pad to open June 1
The concrete foundation for the new splash pad was poured Wednesday morning and crews
will begin installing the water park equipment Monday, Project Manager Billy Counce said.
The splash pad is being built on the site of the former Jerkins Pool and is currently scheduled
to open June 1.
Chairman John Cooper said in
response to Crist's announcement.
At Monday's workshop, Brown
said the county was continuing to
work with its legislative delegation
while they are still in session in
an-attempt to get the funds, placed
in the Senate and House

The family of Justin Kemp would like to say thank you to a lot of very special people.
First and foremost, thank you to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for the breath of
life He has given back to Justin. Also, for the knowledge He gave to the doctors when it
was needed most.
Dr. Emerick, how do we thank you? You're a fabulous doctor and we are so grateful
to have you here in Perry.
Johnny Ray and Wendy Ratliff, we could not ask for any better friends. Really, how
many friends would sleep in a car for three days just to be by our side? You've prayed,
cried, laughed and waited right along with us.' We all love you both and appreciate
everything you've done.
JROTC, thank you. It is wonderful to see a group of young teenagers who really care. I
wish people would open their eyes and see just how great and caring you all really are.
Antioch Revival Church, our church family, thank you for lifting us up in our time of
need. Please continue to pray for us. April Wiles, thank you for informing everyone. I
know you've kept the phone lines going! Eli Wiles, your feel good hugs" really do work!
I'll be waiting for. another one.
Mr. and Mrs. Dwight McDonald, along with Mt. Carmel Church, thank you all. Your visits to the hospital really do mean
more than you realize,
June Cruce, Nikole Weatherly, Francis Spradley, Katrina Russell, Kathy Miller and Teresa Summrall, thank you all. The
care packages you sent weren't just full of goodies, but also a lot of love. And for all of you that I may have forgotten to
mention, thank you.
Now for an update...Justin is being transferred to Shands today (Wednesday). He is still on the ventilator, but doctors
say he's progressing well.

Editor's Note: For more than 30 years,
the Taylor County Historical Society has'
taken the lead in efforts to collect and
preserve the rich history that has shaped
this area. Foremost in its efforts is the
"They Were Here" biographical series.
There is no better introduction to the fourth
book in the series than the one penned by
then-president Alton H. Wentworth in
Thanks to all those who have
assisted in the preparation of
Book Number 4 of "They Were
Here." Your support has been
Recently we have had for study "
in our church school classes
"Abraham and his journey from
Ur of Chaldees to Canaan." I was
impressed by the faith with. which
he moved out after "God had
appeared unto him."
In some respects, I feel that we
have a parallel in the cases of
many fine citizens who migrated
to Florida during the years
beginning immediately after,
Florida became a state.
Like Abraham, they moved out
by faith. Abraham and his
descendants always erected an
altar wherever they sojourned.
These Taylor County pioneers
set up a church wherever they
settled. And the parallel
In the New Testament we read
that one day Jesus paused for
rest and the Scripture states "and
Jacob's well was there." This was
near Sychar where the woman
met him at the well. During
Jacob's sojourn here he dug a
well. For more than 4,000 years
that well has continued to be a
blessing to mankind. Weary
travelers are refreshed and
revived here by its pure sparkling
I recall this to say that there are
avenues through which the
pioneers of Taylor County, in
many instances, still render
service to humanity far beyond
the three score and 10 years
allotted to them.
Any person who invests his
talents or substance in the
building of a church, the
foundation of a school, the
promotion of a Boys Ranch, or,
like Cecil Rhodes, in making
scholarships possible for worthy
youth is, in a very real sense,
"digging a well beside the road"
where the races of men shall
continue to be blessed.
We shall never cease to be
grateful to those good and noble
pioneers who really "dug wells
beside the road" for us. The
virtues they stood for and
promoted have continued to be
an influence in the lives of those
who have been recipients of their
G.J. "Jack" ,Sadler was a
native of Taylor County and he
grew up in the area about two
miles west of the old Huxford
Turpentine Still site. He
married, firstly, Miss Mary Jane
Mixon and their children were:
Mary and Abbie (one who died
in infancy). He married
secondly, Miss Sallie Romie
SDees and they were the parents
of two daughters: Doris
(Hoover) and Louise
He was a farmer in his early
lived in the
area of the
of Sadler for
a operated a storhile andrage.
There he also operated a car
There he also operated a car
rental service. 'Also, he farmed
at this location going in strong
for growing watermelons.
His is best known, perhaps,
for his venture into politics. He
announced his candidacy for
county commissioner and in his
speeches, he declared, "If you
elect me, I will build and pave a
road to the beaches and back."
He was elected and the road
was built. He was really a man
whose word could be depended
