Cou


employees


first pay raise in 5 years


Thanks to a projected
boost in revenue for the
coming year, the Taylor
County Commission
is planning to give its
employees raises for the
first time in five years.
The commission held two
budget workshops over the


past three weeks, resulting
in a balanced budget which
includes a three percent
raise for county employees
as well as constitutional
officer employees for the
upcoming fiscal year, which
begins Oct. 1. The board,
constitutional officers,


county administrator and
county attorney are not
included in the raises.
The projected cost of
the raises is approximately
$180,000 for the coming
fiscal year.
The county's revenue was
boosted both by an increase


in tangible property values
here as well as a complete
reversal on the state's
recent demands that the
county pay back contested
Medicaid payments. After
the county's records were
analyzed by state officials,
rather than the county owing

Commission abuzz because state, FEMA

may reimburse bulk of mosquito spray costs


Local officials are
hopeful that the county will
indeed be reimbursed for
the majority of the $197,000
the county spent to conduct
aerial mosquito spraying
here in the aftermath of
Tropical Storm Debby.


"It does appear we will
get reimbursed by FEMA
and we think we will also
get the 12.5 percent from
the state as well," County
Administrator Jack Brown
said Thursday.
The Federal' Emergency


Management Agency
(FEMA) reimburses local
governments 75 percent
of approved expenses
resulting from a declared
disaster. The state can also
reimburse an additional
12.5 percent, with the local


government responsible for
the remainder.

"If that had not happened,
we would not have had
the money for the raises,"

State


owes


county


$48,000


refund
When the Florida
Legislature passed a
controversial Medicaid
bill this past spring, state
officials said Taylor County
owed hundreds of thousands
of dollars in contested
Medicaid bills from the past
four years.
After representatives
from the Florida Agency for
Health Care Administration
(AHCA) completed a
review of those bills,
however, they found that
the county does not owe the
state any money, but instead
the state owes the county a
$48,000 refund.
According to County
Administrator Jack Brown,
Taylor is one of eight
counties whose balances
"were zeroed out," with
seven set for a refund.
Brown said the refund
will be paid out over several
years by reducing the
amount the county owes
for Medicaid payments in
future years.
According to a
breakdown from the Florida

Help needed for house fire victims


Taylor County's Eridu and
Shady Grove communities
have banded together in
support of a local couple
that lost their home-and
all of their belongings-in a
house fire July 16.
Lewis Aman, whose
family operated Aman's
Store on U.S. 19 for many
years, sustained third degree
burs from the fire and was
airlifted to Shands Hospital.
He has since been released
and, along with Barbara
Lyons, is living in the back
of a (closed) storefront they
have rented in Eridu.
"They are doing better,
but they still need help,"
George Blevins of the
Salvation Army said.
The couple lost many
of their pets in the blaze
and Lyons said she worries
about taking care of their
remaining animals (five
dogs and two horses).
The Salvation Army,
New Home Volunteer Fire
Department and Shady
Grove Baptist Church have
helped meet the initial needs
of the couple. However,


additional help is being
sought to assist with fuel
and medical expenses.


Anyone wishing to contacting Blevins at (850)
donate money or items for 948-2119.
the couple may do so by The residence as located


on Alton Wentworth Road,
just over the county line in
Madison.


Fire destroyed the home of Lewis Aman and Barbara Lyons on July 16.
The couple lost most of their belongings in the blaze and Aman (right)
sustained third degree burns. He has been released from the hospital but
still must travel to Gainesville for appointments with his doctors.

Buckeye under construction in 1952
The above photos, originally'published in the Aug. 14, 1952, edition of The Taylor County News,
provide two views of the Buckeye Cellulose Corporation's pulp mill at Foley. The steel structure shown
was to become the warehouse area of the 1700-foot main building and form the northeast-corner
of that building. The brick building in the background was to be used for wash rooms for the mill, but
at the time, it was being prepared for occupation by the contractors, The H.K. Ferguson Company
and Duval Engineering and Construction Company, who were to use the building for administrative
offices.

"drastically slashed" all
constitutional officers'
budgets. Sheriff Von
Whiddon's budget received
the largest cut, $54,222 off
his request for $449,711.
After the meeting, he said
flatly, "There's no way I
can operate my department
on last year's budget" and'
announced that he was
cancelling county animal
impoundment services.
"If you have trouble with
livestock on the highways,
check with your county
commissioner," the sheriff
said.
In other action, the
commissioners "reacted
coolly" to a request to fund
a public relations expert
to attract industry to the
community.

Commuting

to work

from Paris

By ANTHONY L. WHITE
anthonylamarwhite@yahoo.com


I didn't grow up in the city, but
considering my aversion to nearly all
things rural, you would think I did.
Like most city folks, I'm afraid of
nearly everything that crawls, flies or
walks on more than two legs or less
than two. If it growls, roars or hisses or
if it comes with a stinger or teeth that
are not part of a Crest smile, you can
bet your last dollar that I'm scared of
it. When I was growing up, I was even
afraid of my family's pets.
My "unwarranted" fear didn't go
unnoticed. Whenever one of my
brothers wanted me to do something
or to not do something, all they had
to do was threaten me with one of my
grandmother's cats or my grandfather's
dogs.
"Go 'get me something to drink or
else," my younger brothers would
demand by waving a kitten in my face.
"And make sure it's cold."
I would .slide out the corner past
my brothers and head toward the
kitchen.
Instead of getting on my brothers for
forcing me to be their butler, my mother
would just sit and watch.
"You're not going to say anything?" I
would ask.
"No," she would answer. "You can't be
that scared of a little kitten."
But I was.
Even though I'm grown now and I
still live in the town I was born and
raised in, I still feel like a fish out of
water. And, until recently I thought all
of this was my fault. However, now I'm.
starting to think that I might not be a
real native of Taylor County.
I didn't know I was born and raised in
Paris, France, until one of the student
workers in the Writing Resource
Center at Florida A& M University told
me.
I'd been staying in Tallahassee with
a relative to cut down on the commute
back and forth to work. One Monday
morning, after arriving at work, my
co-workers and I began to discuss our
weekends.
One co-worker spent the weekend
in Atlanta with her beau. Another
burned the midnight oil working on
her graduate thesis. While yet another,
did absolutely nothing. When it came
time for me to tell everyone about my
weekend, I simply said, "I went home
for the weekend."
"You went home?" Jasmine asked in
a disbelieving tone.
"Yes," I answered. "I just got back this
morning."
"I can't believe you left for Paris
Friday and you're already back," she
said. "Wow!"
"Did you say Paris?" I asked with a
bit of uncertainty.
"Yes," she replied. "Isn't Paris your
home?"
"No," I answered with a slight grin.
"Why would you think that?"
Jasmine explained that whenever I
said Perry it sounded like Paris. Then
she asked, "You mean, you're not from
Paris?"
"I was born and reared in Taylor
County," I responded.
"But you don't look like you're from a
little town in the middle of the woods,"
she continued. "You don't talk like
you're country. And, you don't act
country."
"That's because Taylor County may be
in the country, but we aren't country in
that sense," I defended my hometown.
"So, does that mean you're not scared
of snakes, alligators and all kinds of
wild animals?" she asked.
Before answering, I thought about
my lifelong fear of everything that
crawls, flies, growls, roars or hisses.
Then I answered, "Maybe I am from
Paris."
Au revoir. That's goodbye in French.

works on my disastrously

This accomplished

"good guy" deserves good
things to happen in his

being kind that we receive

thanks, Billy.
This week is a busy one!
I will finally get my truck
from the shop Friday-the

will be in shorts and helmets
the first few days but will put
on pads and begin contact on

'The Watch'has bad timing



but still delivers the laughs


Sometimes movies simply have bad
timing. Obviously, there are many months,
if not years, between the time a movie is
first pitched and when it finally arrives in
theaters.
Then, just when the all of that hard work
is about to pay off, the real world throws a
major curve ball.
Take "Space Camp," for instance, which
was set for release in early 1986, until the
Space Shuttle Challenger disaster.
Or "O," a modern retelling
of Shakespeare's "Othello,"
whose story included the
murder of several teenagers
and was originally scheduled .
to debut in the summer
of 1999, months after the .
Columbine shootings.
Then there was
"Phonebooth," involving (
a man trapped by a sniper, I t
which would have been ..
released in November 2002,
but that was before the real-
life Washington, D.C., snipers
struck.
In each of these cases, the release dates
were pushed back, and although the exact
reason can only be guessed at, none became
box office smashes.
So, I doubt it was in anybody's'mind back
however long ago it was the idea was born,
to release a movie entitled "Neighborhood
Watch" while the Trayvon Martin story
remains a nightly news topic.
Instead of a months-long delay, however,
Fox shortened the name to "The Watch" and
rolled the dice.
The end result, which honestly draws
no comparison to the real-world events
at all other than the fact that it involves a
neighborhood watch, is pretty much the
raunchy insanity you would expect when
you get Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and
Jonah Hill in the same R-rated comedy.
Like "21 Jump Street," which also starred
Hill, if you can't stand a constant stream of
foul language and vulgarity, you might as
well stop reading now.
But, if you like comedies where half
the laughs come from disbelief over what
you're hearing, this one may be for you.
The story is pretty simple. Evan (Stiller)
is the consummate overachiever, starting
multiple clubs and organizations to help
his neighbors and working extra hard as
manager of the local Costco. ("The Watch"
has the most direct product placement of a
corporation since FedEx in "Cast Away.")
Evan's world is rocked when a friend is
brutally murdered at his store. Feeling the
police aren't doing enough to catch the
killer, he makes a public plea for help in


forming a Neighborhood Watch.
Answering the call are Bob (Vaughn),
who is more interesting in partying with
the guys that watching the neighborhood;
Franklin (Hill), a somewhat unstable
young man holding a grudge against the
police because they rejected him for failing
the written, physical and mental exams;
and Jamarcus (Richard Ayoade, "The IT
Crowd"), a newcomer to the area looking
to make friends.
Their mission to protect
the neighborhood takes on a
whole new meaning, however,
when they discover that the
murderer may actually be
part of an alien invasion from
space.
S "The Watch" is directed by
long-time "Saturday Night
Live" writer Akiva Schaffer
Based on a script from Seth
Rogan and Evan Goldberg
("Superbad").
The laughs come fast and
often, as does the raunchy
language, especially from
Jamarcus. As juvenile as it might be, hearing
those words in a proper British accent is just
funnier.
I was pleased that they do take the time
to flesh out Evan and Bob's characters, or
at least as much as a film like this can in
order for them to not be simply punch lines.
Vaughn and Stiller work well together,
especially in "Dodgeball," although their
roles are more or less reversed here. Evan
and Bob's problems actually lead to some of
the funniest lines, including one that is both
hilarious and disgusting when Bob declares
his mission to protect his daughteE's honor.
Franklin doesn't get as much
characterization, but Hill has proven he
can make the most of one-dimensional
characters. As for Jamarcus, he has hopes
and dreams, but they involve things I can't
write about in a family newspaper.
Rounding out the cast is Rosemarie
DeWitt ("United States of Tara") as Evan's
wife, Will Forte ("Saturday Night Live")
as a sarcastic local cop and R. Lee Ermey
("Full Metal Jacket") as a suspicious
neighbor.
"The Watch" is crude, rude and
superficial, but thanks to a solid comedic
core from three stars and one up-and-comer,
it ends up producing lots of laughs. Which
is why you would go to a movie about four
neighborhood watchmen facing off against
an alien invasion, right?
So mission accomplished.
The movie is rated R for some strong
sexual content including references,
pervasive language and violent images.


M6M W- 6
..


Most of the major summer blockbusters
may have already arrived, but that doesn't
mean new movies are not still coming, with
16 films set for wide release through five
weekends in August.
The week brings "Diary of a Wimpy
Kid: Dog Days," the third film in the
series based on the best-selling books by
Jeff Kinney. When Greg (Zachary Gordon)
makes plans for the summer, they end up all
going awry. The first two films have both
S been surprise hits, so the fans should turn
out again this time.
The movie is rated PG for some rude
humor.
"Total Recall" is a remake of the 1990 sci-
fi classic starring Arnold Schwarzenegger


and based on the Philip K. Dick short story,
"We Can Remember It for You Wholesale."
This time it's Colin Farrell ("Fright Night")
who stars as an everyman who begins to
suspect he might be a spy after visiting a
company which provides fake memories to
spice up your life. The film is directed by
Len Wiseman ("Underworld") and stars his
wife Kate Becksinsale along with Jessica
Biel and Bryan Cranston. It's not clear
why a remake was necessary in this case,
but I have to admit the trailers look pretty
entertaining.
The film is rated PG-13 for intense
sequences of sci-fi violence and action,
some sexual content, brief nudity and
language.

as "How the Grinch Stole
Christmas," "Green Eggs
and Ham" and "The Cat in
the Hat."
Over the decades since
many of his stories were
written, there have been
quite a few film adaptations
of his works.
Although "Grinch" and
"Cat in the Hat" were both
made into into live action
features over the past 12
years, I think we can all
agree that Dr. Seuss' works
are best seen in animation.
In 2008, "Horton Hears a
Who" became the first CGI-
animated feature based on a
Dr. Seuss book.
This past spring we
received "Dr. Seuss' The
Lorax," from Illumination
Entertainment, the studio
that brought us "Despicable
Me," and that film arrives in
DVD and Blu-ray Tuesday.
Although morals can
be found in many of Dr.
Suess' books, "The Lorax"
is perhaps one of his most
message-driven works,
driving home a strong
environmental moral.
The film expands on the
original story of the book,
not without noticeable
growing pains, and while
it has fun and amusing
moments, the book's
original message ends up
feeling simultaneously
watered down and preachy.
In the book, a boy living
in a polluted and barren
world talks to the Once-
Ler, who recounts how it
chopped down all of the
Truffula trees to create
the very versatile thneeds,
despite warnings from the
Lorax that it was destroying
the environment. When the
last tree is gone, however,
the Once-Ler's business
goes under.
In the film version, the
boy's life and world is
greatly expanded, taking
up much of the story. Ted
Wiggins (voiced by Zac
Efron, "New Year's Eve")
lives in the very artificial
and commercial town of
Thneed-Ville. His friend
Audrey (singer Taylor
Swift) wants to see a real


tree because everything in
town is made out of plastic.
Wanting to impress Audrey,
Ted follows the advice of
his grandmother (Betty
White, "Hot in Cleveland")
and sets off to find the
fabled Once-Ler (Ed Helms,
"The Hangover"), who lives
outside of town.


*xr' ~

4:


Only nobody ever leaves
town and Ted's actions draw
the attention of Mr. O'Hare
(Rob Riggle, "Killers"),
who is making mega-bucks
selling bottled air to the
citizens of the polluted
Thneed-Ville and has no
need for trees.
Meanwhile, the Once-Ler
recounts his story to Ted
about his encounter with
the Lorax (Danny DeVito,
"It's Always Sunny in
Philadelphia").
Trying to expand any
short story into a feature-
length film is going to be
a challenge, and perhaps
suffering the most here is
the Once-Ler. While he is
a mostly unseen figure in
the book, the film keeps
him human, which not only
helps the audience relate
to him more, it also shows
that we can sometimes be
the villain with the wrong
choices.
Unfortunately, the film's
attempt to further humanize
him with a backstory
featuring an unloving and
emotionally abusive family
leads to serious character
swings when his story leads
to its inevitable conclusion.
One moment he is shown
regretting the destruction
he's wrought and the next
he's singing a rock-inspired
love song to greed and
destructive capitalism.
The present storyline is
entirely original to the film
so it has less inconsistencies,
but its constant attempts to
showcase the evils of over-
commercialization and
industry are trite, especially
when its similarities draw


comparisons to Pixar's
"WALL*E," which did
many of the same things
with much more subtlety
and wit.
Additionally, its seeming
inability to see any middle
ground between the
environment and capitalism,
makes its message come off
shrill and hollow, at least for
those willing to accept that
the two can co-exist.
Parents will note the
rating, and from what I could
tell, there was one instance
of mild language that felt
out of place and my guess is
it was left in (or added) to
ensure a PG rating, which is
more appetizing to tweens
and younger teens than a G
rating.
I'm sure kids will enjoy
the film with its cute
creatures and beautiful
colors, but parents may
leave conflicted, regardless
of where they fall on the
attempted message points.
The movie is rated PG for
brief mild language.
"The Lorax" arrives
Tuesday on Blu-ray 3D
Combo Pack and Blu-ray
Combo Pack, both featuring
DVD and digital versions,
as well as on DVD.
The combo packs
include three mini-movies
("Serenade," "Wagon-Ho"
and "Forces of Nature"), a
"making of" featurette on
the mini-movies, deleted
scene, feature-length
commentary from co-
directors Chris Renaud and
Kyle Balda, and several
games.

Let's Talk


When I was a child I
collected paper dolls. Some
were of the store-bought
variety, but many were cut
from the Sears and Roebuck
Catalog. They were my
imaginary families. They
had personalities, careers
and lived the ups and downs
of ordinary human families.
I'm sure there are some
buried at my childhood
home-place on Center
Street since I remember I
attended several funerals
when they became broken
pieces of paper, no longer
strong enough for everyday
activities.
In a way, it prepared me
for life. And, it gave me
a genuine love for family
and the stories passed
down through word of
mouth. These stories rattle
around in my mind on a
daily basis, make excellent
conversation, and keep
me connected to past
generations.
In preparation for my
first novel I've learned
to do serious research in
order to produce a book
with genuine roots of truth.
Though fiction, I wanted
the characters to shadow the
relatives I knew from all the
times I heard the retelling of
their stories.
As it is with all
families, the Leggett-
Taylor-Hewitt-Walker
family tree has some
amazing ancestors. Their
lives helped to shape my
character. Hopefully, 'mine
will do the same for future
generations.
The best-loved and most
often repeated stories in the
Taylor-Leggett side of my
family tell about some of
the most colorful characters
of long ago. They, without
a doubt, produce enough
adventures to write several
books should I be fortunate
enough to do so.
Top of the list for me is the
tale about Mary Ann. She is
my great-grandmother on
the Taylor side. According
to family lore her family
was massacred and she
was the lone survivor. A
Taylor family came along
the trail and discovered
her wandering through the
wilderness, rescued her and
made her their own. We
have a missing link, since
she never remembered her
last name. Whether from
the trauma of what she had
seen or something else, all
she could tell them was--My
name is Mary Ann.
Coming in at a close
second is the tale of my
granddaddy Elisha Leggett.
We know he was sheriff

End-of-year

bonuses

given in

2010, 2011
PAY RAISE
Continued from page 1
County Administrator Jack
Brown said Thursday of the
Medicaid issue.
Meanwhile, the additional
projected revenue the
county will receive from
the tangible property value
boost is around $340,000.
While recurring revenues
have been on the decline for
the past several years, the
commission has been able
to use unanticipated funds
returned to the county by
the constitutional officers
each of the past two years to
give employees a one-time,
"end of year" bonus of $500
to all full-time employees
and $250 to regular part-
time employees.
The cost of the bonuses
was approximately
$175,000 for county and
constitutional officer


employees each year.
The commission will vote
on its tentative 2012-13
budget, which includes the
proposed raises, during a
public hearing Sept. 10, at 6
p.m. They will vote on the
final budget one week later,
Sept. 17, at 6 p.m.


By DELORES WALKER


We all have one
edmwalk'wrndslream net


in a small Georgia town
during prohibition days of
the 1920's. Family stories
also elude to the fact he
could have been a U.S.
Marshal as well, all on the
hush, hush side. What we
do know, for a fact is he
disappeared around 1923 or
24, never to be heard from
again. Attempts to locate
him have gone unanswered
for decades.
And...the story of
Aunt Laura, who had a


supposedly haunted house
where the rocking chairs
would take off on a wild
ride at all hours of the
day and night.....and, the
cousins who were part of the
carnival in the 1900s, billed
as "Alligator Children."
Then I come to the story of
Georgeanne, my husband's
great grandmother. She
lived during the dark days
of the Civil War, or as
Southerners say, the War of
Northern Aggression. She


quilted a beautiful Double-
Wedding Ring Quilt that has
been passed down for nearly
two centuries. My daughter
Vickie has the quilt now.
It is a treasured part of
our family. It is also the
plot behind the book I am
currently bringing to life.
"We All Have One,"
families, and thank God
for them. If not for their
existence we would not have
these marvelous stories to
pass along.

Angela BALL: (1) Judges
must have compassion and
common sense in order
to effectively do their
job. In dealing with non-
criminal traffic infractions,
the County Judge has the
discretion to withhold
adjudication, thereby
removing the penalty
of "points" on a license
history. Each person who
comes before the court is
different and each case and

circumstance is different.
There are occasions when
that discretion should
be exercised and there
are occasions where an
individual should not be
eligible for that leniency,
depending upon the
circumstances of the
incident and driving history.
I can assure the citizens
of Taylor County, that if
elected. I will apply the law
to the case and the facts
before me to reach a fair and
reasonable result.
Bill BLUE: (1) I will
follow the law. The
"practice" of assessing
traffic violation points is
actually required by Florida
law in certain 'cases. I
will certainly support the
practice in cases where the
law requires it. In cases
where I have discretion to
assess points or not, judicial
ethics prohibit me from
saying how I will rule in
cases that could possibly
come before me.
G. Cline MOORE: (1)
County Courts always have
the discretion to withhold
points in traffic infraction
cases. They have that
authority by law. One ticket
can cause your automobile
insurance premium to
increase 20 percent. In
the long run, that's a lot
worse financially than the
monetary fine imposed by
the court.
I believe in taking a
common sense approach
to traffic infractions, and


determining them on a
case by case basis. As a
judge, you have the ability
to review the offender's
driving history. If someone
has a clean driving history,
and hasn't had several prior
or recent infractions, I don't
have a problem withholding
the points and requiring
them to pay the fine, as long
as the person knows that they
won't get that opportunity
again. Additionally,
whether or not this option
is considered would be
dependent on the severity of
the violation. If someone
is speeding in a school
zone or greatly exceeding
the posted allowable
speed, then the possibility
of withholding the points
may not be afforded to
them. Infraction fines have
become pretty significant,
and the purpose of the fine
is to serve as a deterrent to
future infractions. Most
people will get the message

also believe in the case of

it may serve them better
to be assessed community

fines only. Most of the time,
their parents are the ones
having to pay the fine, and
the offender doesn't feel the
punishment. By ordering
community service, you

who is responsible for his
or her actions, and it doesn't
become the burden of the
parents.
Rhonda PORTWOOD:
(1) The Code of Judicial
Conduct, Canon 7, is titled
A Judge or Candidate
for Judicial Office Shall
Refrain From Inappropriate
Political Activity. A
candidate for judicial office
in Florida is bound by this
Code. Canon 7A (3)(e)
states: "A candidate for
judicial office shall not,
with respect to parties or
classes of parties, cases,
controversies, or issues that
are likely to come before
the court, make pledges,
promises, or commitments
that are inconsistent with the
impartial performance of the
adjudicative duties of the
office..." The commentary
to Canon 7A(3)(e) states
specifically, "Section 7A(3)
(e) prohibits a candidate for
judicial office from making
statements that commit the
candidate regarding cases,
controversies or issues
likely to come before the
court."
Whether I support
withholding traffic violation
point penalties on driver's
licenses for traffic violators
is an issue that is very likely
to come before a county
court judge in Florida.
Therefore, I respectfully
decline to answer this
question because I would
be violating Canon 7 of The
Code of Judicial Conduct,


(2) How would your personal beliefs guide your

rulings in divorce and child custody cases?


Angela BALL: (2)
Divorce and custody cases
are generally not within the
jurisdiction of the County
Court. However, in Taylor
County, the county judge
is often appointed as an
"Acting Circuit Judge" for
such matters.
As a candidatefor county
judge, I must answer the
question somewhat vaguely
as I cannot pre-judge any
case which would come
before me if elected.
I am well aware of all
of the remedies available
in divorce and custody
cases. This area of the law
is ever changing and there
have been many sweeping
changes in my 22 years of
practicing this type of law.
The guiding principle in
this area of the law and in
dependency law, where I
serve as an attorney for the
Guardian Ad Litem, is the
"best interest of children."
Litigants in divorces
are suffering through the
worst period of their lives.
Especially, if children are
involved. I can assure the
citizens of Taylor County
that I would listen to anyone
who would come before
the Court in a respectful
and caring manner. I firmly
believe that everyone
deserves their day in Court
with an opportunity to
present their case to a fair
and impartial judge. As a
general principle, I believe
that more encouragement,
help and tolerance should
be extended to parents who
are genuinely trying to help
one's children and oneself.
Each case depends on its
own evidence and merit.
There is no way to predict
an outcome or the facts
that might be presented if
I am fortunate enough to
be elected. However, I can
assure everyone that I as a
mother of four children and


an attorney with 24 years of
practice, that I will utilize
my life experience and legal
experience every day to
fairly and impartially reach
a conclusion.
Bill BLUE: (2) The
county court does not have
jurisdiction over divorce
and child custody cases,
though county court judges
often assist the circuit court.
A judge,' like everyone
else, has personal beliefs
and values, but it is the role
of a judge to enforce and
follow the law, not impose
his own values on others.
Imposing my own values
(or bias), unsupported by
law, is not permitted. I am
running for county judge,
not the state legislature.
A county judge is a public
servant who takes an oath
to support and defend the
Constitutions of the United
States and the State of
Florida and that is what I
intend to do.
Floridais ano fault divorce
state. Divorces involve
issues of (1) determination
and division of marital
property, (2) alimony,
and (3) timesharing,
residency and child support.
Occasionally, there are
other issues in these cases
such as domestic violence.
The resolution of these
issues is guided by Florida
statute and precedent (prior
appellate court decisions).
The role of the judge is to
apply the existing statutes
and precedent to the facts of
the case. In cases involving
children, the most important
factor is the best interests of
the children.
My personal beliefs would
guide me to honor my oath,
to give everyone who comes
before me equal dignity and
respect, to provide everyone
the opportunity to be heard
without pre-judging the
case, to follow the law, and


to rule impartially on the
basis of law and facts.
G. Cline MOORE:
(2) I don't believe that a
judge's personal beliefs
or opinions should ever
affect how they rule on any
case, especially family law
cases involving divorce or
parenting issues with minor
children. Ajudge's duty and
responsibility is to apply
Florida law to the facts and
circumstances of each case
in order to reach a fair and
impartial decision. The
judge should never interject
his (or her) personal beliefs,
biases or experiences into
the decision. Doing so
erases and negates the
integrity of the court. When
people come into court, they
should have the confidence
and the assurance that they
are on a level playing field.
They should know that
any decision reached by
the court is based solely
on the law as it applies
to their case, and that the
ruling they receive here is
the same ruling that would
be reached by any other
judge in any other court in
Florida faced with the same
set of facts. When judges
begin interjecting their own
beliefs and biases into their
rulings, the court is unable
to maintain any consistency,
and those who come before
the court seeking fairness
and justice may find the
result clouded by someone's
personal opinions.
Rhonda PORTWOOD:
(2) First and foremost, a
Florida judge must apply
the appropriate law to
the facts of the particular
case regardless of their
personal beliefs. It is well
established under Florida
law that the courts in Florida
are charged with the duty
and obligation at all times to

Continued from page 4
make and enter such orders
and decrees affecting the
custody of minor children
as will promote their best
interest and general welfare.
.Judges do not live in a
vacuum prior to becoming
a judge. All judges bring
with them to the bench their
personal experiences and
beliefs. However, a judge's
personal experiences and
beliefs are not what guides
them, the law is their guide.
For example, a judge
may personally feel that a
child under 5 years of age
should reside with their
mother. However, Florida
law specifically prohibits
a judge from favoring one
parent over the other with
regards to the age of the
minor child.
A judge must follow
the law, and with regards
to family law matters,
the laws are very clear
regarding the factors that a
judge is to consider when
making a "best interest"
determination in divorce and,
child custody proceedings.
And, even if a judge
doesn't personally believe
in divorce at all, he or she
is still bound to follow the
law and grant a petition for
dissolution of marriage if all
allegations are properly pled
and proven.
Personal beliefs come
from personal experiences,
religion, parental guidance
and family, and many
other factors, and while a
personal experience or other
factor may assist a judge in
understanding the litigant's
issue, the judge is still
bound to be objective and
follow the law.

SHERIFF

Tony Chambers (R)

Danny McLeod (D)

L.E.'Bummy'Williams (D)
- - - -


(1) With the recent disbandment of the Taylor

County Joint Drug Task Force, how would the
sheriff's office under your leadership combat

the sale and use of illegal drugs?


Tony CHAMBERS: (1)
Under my leadership as
sheriff of Taylor County, I
would mend the relationship
between the sheriff's
o(cje rjndtfile Perry Police.
Department to re-estublish
the jTtia~rug Task Force.
A.- bent. I y.ill 'be
abreasi 'Of ll the daily
operations that involves the
Task Force.
The Task Force would be
under fiew leadership and
would work with the Perry
Police Department in our
efforts to combat the drug
proble~i in Taylor County.
The- Task Force would
put more emphasis. on the
suppliers than' the'dealers
and users.
.s sheriff. I would work
closelh \ ith Sut.e of Florida
to remove all, synthetic
drugs from our community,
and educate our youth on
the dangers of these types of
drugs.
As sheriff, I would create
a drug interdiction unit to
control the drug trafficking
problem that travels thru our
community.
If elected as your sheriff, I
will implement the D.A.R.E
program back to our school
system, in an effort to teach
our youth about the danger
and consequences of drug
use.
As sheriff, I cannot
promise that I can eliminate
all drugs in Taylor County,
but I can guarantee that I will
reduce the drig-problem to
make*'OUR" comnitnity a
safer place.
Danny MCLEOD:
Taylor County is our home,
it is Where we have chosen
to live and raise our families.
Over the last few years
we have all witnessed the
changes that have taken
place in our communities.
The sale and use of illegal
drugs has had a devastating
effect on our families and
children.
We all know someone who
has been affected by this
epidemic that is spreading
throughout our county.
As sheriff, I. will work to
restore the public's trust
within our communities and
our schools. Help provide
resources to educate our
children on the dangers of
illegal drugs.
I will ensure that every
member of the Taylor
County, Sheriff's. Office
is; fully committed to
providing the services and
protection that the citizens
of our county deserve. I will
also:
Develop within the
sheriff's department a
team of certified narcotics
officers that will target the
ever growing drug problem.
Work directly with the


sheriffs in neighboring
counties to develop a multi-
agency drug task force that
will address the delivery
and sale of illegal drugs
' from county to county.
. Secure federal' grant
funding to pay for
equipment and specialized
training for the development
of K-9 units, which will be
utilized to identify and seize
illegal drugs as they pass
through our county.
SCqntinue, education
and [tr.injng within the
department to ensure :that
ihe Ta) l-r County:Sheriff"'
Office can meet future
challenges -while providing
quality services to all our
communities.
Bummy WILLIAMS:
iji :With the aJd.l'tment
in resources related' to
the drug task force, I will
continue to use the uniform
patrol, special operations
and criminal investigations
divisions of the sheriff's
office.
As I always have, I will
work locally, side-by-side
with the City of Perry Police
Department, the surrounding
county sheriff's offices
that share assets, and all
law enforcement branches
of the State of Florida and
the federal government
that constantly support my
efforts to combat crime and
the illegal use of drugs in
Taylor County.

(2) What do
you see as the
greatest threat
to the health,
well-being
and safety of
the citizens of
Taylor County?

Tony CHAMBERS:
(2) The greatest threat
to our community is the
manufacturing, sale and
distribution of drugs. This
problem seems to have a
hold on our community, not
only our youth, but citizens
of all ages. The distribution
of prescription medication
has taken over many lives.
With this problem in our
community, it leads to other
crimes being committed in
order to promote and pay.
for their habits.
While speaking with
citizens of Taylor County,'
another one of their many
concerns was the speeding
on our roadways and in our
neighborhoods. As your
sheriff, I will work to reduce
the careless and reckless
driving on our roadways.


Another problem that's
been brought to my attention
was the involvement of our
citizens and youth within
the sheriff's office.
',-.As 'your sheriff: I'm
goinrig to' implement a few
programs to get you the
citizens and youth involved.
For our youth, I will
have an Explorer Program
for ages 9 to 18, and The
D.A.R.E. program back into
the school.
For the citizens, a horse.
posse with volunteers to
help vtith search and rescue,
a citizens academy and ride
along program.
Danny MCLEOD: (2)
I believe the proliferation
of illegal drug use to be
the greatest threat facing
'our society today. Illicit
drugs destroy families and
adversely affect our way
of life. The impact drug
use has on our schools
and our social structure is


Tony Chambers -
devastating.
Illegal drugs have a far
reaching effect throughout
our society. The demand for
illegal drugs has led to ,an
increase in violent crimes
and prostitution. SLi.lti'c_
show that an increase :in
socially transmitted diseases
is directly linked to: illegal
drugs.
Most people do not
realize just how readily
available illegal drugs are to
our children, or how young
children are when they
first begin experimenting
with marijuana, cocaine,
methamphetamine and
prescription drugs.
Between 2010 and
2011, approximately 3,000


Danny McLeod
Floridians died as a direct
result of illegal drug use;
2,250 of those deaths were
young people between the
ages: of 10 and 24.
Children ages 12 through
17 abuse prescription drugs
more than any other illegal
drugs combines. Sadly, this
type of abise can lead to
addiction and death.
It is clear that we are in
danger of losing an entire
generation because of the
availability and use of
illegal and prescription
drugs. As your sheriff I will
work to address the ever
growing drug problem and
ensure we reach out to our
communities and provide
resources to educate our


L.E. 'Bummy' Williams
children on the horrific
dangers of illegal drug use.
I feel very confident that
working together we can
make our home a safer place
for everyone.
Bunimy WILLIAMS:
(2) I have two great concerns
not only for Taylor County
but for the United States of
America. The first concern
is the misuse and trafficking
of prescription medication.
The second is the misuse
and abuse of electronic and
social media.
I will continue to allocate
any and all resources
available to the Sheriff's
Office to fight these
important and life changing
issues.

(1) With the continued drop in property
values in Taylor County over the past several
years, do you feel that assessments are now
an accurate reflection of current values?


Bruce RATLIFF: (1)
In accordance with Florida
Statues, every year's
assessments have been an
accurate reflection of value
as of Jan. 1 of the current
year. The assessment
process is designed to
reflect the prior year's sales
and is not intended to be
an indicator of the current
real estate market. Your
2012. assessment would
be a reflection of sales
from Jan. 1, 2011, to Dec.
31, 2011. This may cause
assessments to be higher or


lower than the market in the
2012 calendar year. So, the
current assessments are a
direct reflection of the study
period mandated by Florida
Statues.
Property values saw a
significant increase from
2005 through 2008. This
was a false market that
was the beginning of our
national downfall in the real
estate market. During my
2008 campaign I said I was

TAX COLLECTOR iL


Randy Hathcock (R)

Kyle Rowell (D) Mark Wiggins (D)


(1) With many changes to the state's tax laws

and fee structures year-to-year, what will

you do to help keep Taylor County citizens

informed and up-to-date?


Randy HATHCOCK:
(1) Tax laws and fee
structures change so
frequently that it is crucial
the tax collector stays
aware and notifies the
public. First and foremost,
I would do this through a
process that starts with my
personal responsibility to
remain alert to impending
changes and keeping the
tax collector's office staff
abreast of current tax news
and events. This will help to
accurately advise the public
of any changes affecting our
county. It will also allow
me to carry the voice of the
public to legislation before
changes are made.
Besides media exposure
and mailings, continual
updates would be made
to the Taylor County
tax collector's web page


with the most current
information. Links to
any sites that would offer
further support or details on
pending legislative changes
or laws would be included
to ensure our citizens stay
informed and up-to-date.
My staff would be
constantly available to
answer calls, questions
or concerns. I feel that
communication will be the
key to having a successful
tax collector's office. If
elected, these efforts would
be my top priority.
Kyle ROWELL: (1)
Being an accountant and.
part of a Taylor County,
family that settled here in
the 1830's and who has
proven integrity, fairness
and love' for this county
by many through public
service.


I understand it will be my
job to collect the taxes that
are being lawfully assessed.
I also understand I must
and will have the citizens'
trust and confidence that I
am impartial and treat all
people equal.
Federal, state and
local tax laws change
almost every legislative
session--especially State
Statue 197, the heart of the
tax collector's powers and
duties. State government
has always seen the tax
collector's office as a good
place to start because it deals
with almost every citizen
on a local level. As state
budgets continue to shrink,
I look for them to continue
to delegate more of Florida
Department of Revenue's
duties to local tax collectors.

RATLIFF
Continued from page 7
these inflated values and I
have. I have reduced the real
property value of Taylor
County's tax roll as follows:
2009, $70 million; 2010,
$88 million; 2011, $68
million; 2012, $28 million.
Total reduction amounts to
$254 million.
While I have aggressively
reduced these values, I have
stayed in compliance with
Florida Statute concerning
tax roll submittal. All
Florida county tax rolls
fall under the Property
Tax Oversight division of
the Florida Department of
Revenue (DOR). Taylor
County's tax roll has been
approved, without issue, in
each of the four years I have
been in office.
I will continue to assess
Taylor County property
owners in a fair and just
manner that will reflect
current market values while
complying with Florida
Statutes to assure approval
of our future tax rolls.
Jerry REGISTER: (1)
Chapter 193.011, Florida
Statutes states: In arriving
at just valuation as required
under s.4, Art. VII of the
State Constitution, the
property appraiser shall
take into consideration the
following factors:
The present cash value
of the property, which is the
amount a willing purchaser
would pay a willing seller,
exclusive of reasonable
fees and costs of purchase,
in cash or the immediate
equivalent thereof in a
transaction at arm's length;.
The highest and best use
to which the property can
be expected to be put in the
immediate future and the
present use of the property,
taking into consideration
any applicable judicial
limitation or local or state
land use regulation and
considering any moratorium
imposed by executive
order, law, ordinance,
regulation, resolution or
proclamation adopted by
any governmental body
or agency or the governor
when the moratorium or
judicial limitation prohibits
or restricts the development
or improvement of property
as otherwise authorized
by applicable law. The
applicable governmental
body or agency or the
governor shall notify
the property appraiser in
writing of any executive
order, ordinance, regulation,
or proclamation it adopts
imposing any such
limitation, regulation, or
moratorium;


The location of said
property;
The quantity or size of
said property;
The cost of said property
and the present replacement
value of any improvements
thereon;
The condition of said
property;
The income of said
property; and
The net proceeds of
the sale of the property, as
received by the seller, after
deduction of all of the usual
and reasonable fees and
costs of the sale, including
the costs and expenses of
financing, and allowance
for unconventional or
atypical terms of financing
arrangements. When the
net proceeds of the sale of
any property are utilized,
directly or indirectly, in
the determination of just
valuation of realty of the
sold parcel or any other
parcel under the provisions
of this section, the property
appraiser, for the purposes
of such determination, shall
exclude any portion of such
net proceeds attributable
to payments for household
furnishings or other items of
personal property.
With the above factors
being considered, and
as a licensed real estate
professional and my
knowledge of past and
present values in Taylor
County I do not believe that
assessments are an accurate
reflection of current values.

(2) With the
state adding
new property
tax exceptions,
how would you
ensure that Taylor
County property
owners receive
their maximum
savings?

Bruce RATLIFF: (2)
There are currently no
new additional exemptions
for the 2012 tax year.
However, there are several
constitutional amendments
that will be on the
November ballot. You can
go to my website, www.
taylorcountypa.com and
review these amendments. In
the event these amendments
pass and are implemented
for the 2013 tax year, we
will as always apply the
appropriate exemption in
the order that benefits the
taxpayer most.
It has always been the
policy of my office to


contact as many taxpayers

It is very important that a tax
collector have accounting
experience on how to deal
with these changes as they
are being introduced as
legislation and not wait till
these bills are written into
laws. I will fight in the halls
of the state legislature when
these negative bills are being
introduced personally and
through the tax collectors
association.
When these new laws
are implemented, I will use
the most efficient, effective
and economical advertising
method accessible. Some
examples include notices
in the office, along with tax
bills when'they are mailed,

(2) Do you feel the current system

of assessing hunting camps and RVs

in the county is fair and equitable?


TAX COLLECTOR
Continued from page 8
Randy HATHCOCK:
(2) This is a great question,
being a hunter and
fisherman the assessment of
hunting camps and RVs has
directly affected me along
with many other citizens
of this county. My whole
life I have been involved
with hunting and fishing,
and the great enjoyment
that camping brings to this
county.
This cost just adds
additional burden.
Let's examine where
the fees came from: local
county commissioners voted
to impose these fees. It is a
concern that the leaders of
this county can't look at
options other than assessing
more fees on the average
local citizen. We should all
keep this in mind at the polls
this election year. As tax
collector, I will pledge that
the yoice of the community
will be heard through me
to the leaders before they
make these decisions.
The average hunter
and fisherman already
contributes greatly in state
and county fees through
hunting and fishing
licenses, along with land
lease permits, just to name
a few. Couple this with the
costs of dog food, rifles,
ammo and 4-wheel-drives;
it's just getting harder for a
"Country Boy to Survive!"
Kyle ROWELL: (2)
First, I would like to remind
residents that a tax collector
does not set policy, they
just enforce and must know
how to read, understand and
apply: United States Tax
Code, Florida State Statutes
and local city and county
ordinances. I say that to just


say this, the difference from
a good tax collector and an
awesome tax collector is
having a proactive voice
against wrongful taxes and
double taxations. If a tax
collector speaks others do
listen. I will fight for you,
especially against state and
local government mandates
(like the tag increases that
almost doubled in cost a few
years ago during this harsh
economy).
The Taylor County
Commission is required by
Florida State Statue 129 to
vote and submit a balanced
budget that is written and
calculated by the county
accountant, not a county
commissioner.
County Ordinance
Section 66-109, sets that
RV and Hunting Camps
pay one-third of the Special
Assessment or also, I found
out, if used m6're than just
hunting season, taxpayer
must pay the full amount.
The finance director, not
a county commissioner,
uses this revenue source
to balance the Solid Waste
Fund and Budget. I learned
from my Papa Rowell
who was a great cattle and
businessman "it depends on
what side of the 40 you stand
on if things seemed fair." As
a county commissioner who
must stand in the middle of
"the 40" and see all four
corners and its ordinances
it sets be constitutional. I
know taxpayers don't mind
paying their fair share, just
not over burdened. My
answer has to be no because
when a true Taylor County
taxpaying resident has to
pay on a hunting camp or
RV site, I believe that is
double taxation. Even after
research, the original intent
of the inaugural board when


this special assessment
was set has never been
considered.
I believe there should
be a true exemption on
at least one unit thus not
being double taxed on our
enjoyments and hobbies.
When away from home and
at the camp there is not a
single pound of garbage
being generated at home.
I also believe non-
residents should be taxed at
the full amount as residents.
Taylor County residents
shouldn't fund two-thirds of
a non-residents' part-time
status.
If there is revenue
involved and it is more
than one unit on a business
license, the days the site is
rented should be divided
over 365 days and prorated.
Also there should be a
minimum of $50 because
of the cost of the tax
collection process and the
immateriality accounting
standard. The budget should
be balanced to these revenue
projections.
Mark WIGGINS:
(2)First of all, the tax
collector's office does not
make any assessments on
property. The tax collector's
office follows the direction
of the county commission.
Is it fair to allow residents
of this county to pay the
solid waste fee for those
that live here seasonally?
The county commission has
recently changed the way
they assess these properties
by cutting the solid waste
fee by two thirds for these
assessments.
At this time it is the only
way to make sure county
residents are not carrying
the whole burden for this
assessment and visitors pay
their fair share.


(1) What do you think the county

commission's role should be in

economic development?



DIIstnalmP


(1) Successful economic
development is a multi-
faceted sustained effort
by the county, city and
other stakeholders working
toward a common goal of
attracting new business and
industry to locate in our
county, We must, however,
continue to support our
existing industries to assist
them in expansion and
growth thereby creating
additional jobs for our
citizens. I see the county


(1) The county
commission should
help promote economic
development by assisting
with programs to generate


(1) A county
commissioner must be
committed to economic
development initiatives by
striving to be a responsive,
community conscious
government representative.
As county commissioner,
my role is the protection and
preservation of our pristine
resources, the health, safety,
and welfare of the public
and quality of life and for
future generations. I see
my county commissioner's
role in Taylor County's
future and economic
development as a full-time
job encompassing but not


commission's role as one
of support and leadership in
this combined effort.
Specifically, the county
commission must provide
adequate funding to our
lead economic development
agency, the Taylor County
Development Authority,
to enable them to fulfill
their mission of recruiting
new quality industry and
jobs for Taylor County.
The commission must
also continue to seek ways

buildings, tax incentives

possible.
Also the Board of County

Provide jobs, livable
wages and employment
opportunities.
Attracting high quality,

Addressing the needs

we are to be successful in

As your county

will continue to support tax
incentives and a streamlined
permitting process for
qualified new business
and industry willing to
locate in Taylor County.
We desperately need more

activity.
As commissioner, I will
recognize and promote
those actions that encourage
private companies to
expand, build or relocate
facilities which support new
or expanding businesses in
our county. I will assist with
business start-ups that create
new job opportunities and
focus on adding value to the
knowledge base of the labor
force. As commissioner, I
will not represent special
interests that work only to
the benefit of themselves
and not Taylor County's
economic growth.


I Dist. 2 J1T3imMDY I


(1) The county
commission should work
closely with the Taylor
County Development
Authority to bring
higher wage jobs to Taylor
County.


(..
1.L


In addition to working with
our development authority,
the commission needs to
call on our congressmen,
state representatives and
governor to assist us in our
efforts.


Let's not forget that
your tax money pays their
salaries too. Even as we
search for new employers
to locate in our county, we
should protect and assist our

(2) Over the past few
years budgets have been
cut throughout the county
by all departments, except
the commissioners' own
budgets. They have increased
their own budget, particularly
their travel budget with our
citizens' hard-earned tax
dollars.
It is also my understanding,
the county will soon be
redoing the commission
meeting room per the request
of the current board. Why?
To make it easier to look
at each other. They are
spending your tax dollars
on remodeling their own
meeting room to look at each
other.
The board of
commissioners should
follow the same guidelines
they set for their staff and
live within the means of
our citizens, many of whom
are struggling to eat, pay
utilities, and provide for their
families.
If elected, I will personally
pay for any travel expenses
I incur when traveling on
behalf of the county. I do not
expect our citizens to pay for
my expenses.
More than $100,000 in
local tax dollars has been
spent on the Shady Grove
Park the past few years when
sand spurs are taking over
Hodges Park, a key tourism
site for the county.
A few weeks ago on a
Saturday there were 142
people at Hodges Park at
Keaton Beach in the early
afternoon. There was no one
at the park in Shady Grove.
Given we need to improve
infrastructure countywide,
increase fire protection and
upgrade rescue equipment,
andbhave hundreds of miles of
unpaved roads, particularly
in District 3, this is where
funding should be spent.

county spending too much
money? In which area or

county spending too little
money?


B]IO
ILonnie

IHOUCK JI r.l


(2) In the past five years,
in order to balance the
county's budget and not
raise property taxes, every
department has had to cut
spending and has given no


pay raises to employees.
Every department has
cut spending to where
maintaining the same level
of service is being affected.
No departments are


spending too much money
and all departments
need to increase their
budgets so they can
at least give their employees
a raise.

I think we are doing
a fine job with what we
have considering the cuts
that have come our way.


listening to many of our
citizens and seeing the
large turnouts that was there
to support it. There were
some who opposed it, but
not that many. Some of the


comprehensive. I have not
had the opportunity to fully
study the plan and ask the
downtown business owners
how it would impact them.
There are only one or
two owners of downtown
businesses who live within
the city limits of Perry that
could vote on the plan if
it were put to a vote by the
city. Any proposed plan
for downtown should be
provided to the business
owners prior to being
approved by the city council.
Also, there are parts of
the plan that could have
an adverse affect on the
delivery of supplies to
both the businesses and the
courthouse. Large trucks
most likely wouldn't be able
to deliver downtown as they
presently do.


statements that the opposers
made troubled me' at first,
but the supporters of the
plans were more positive. I
just pray that I have made
the right decision.

(1) Do you support or oppose the recently unveiled
"master plan" for downtown improvements as
well as the city's revitalization efforts?
welaIh iysrviIiainefrs


(1) I commend the city's
plan for improvement
and revitalization efforts
but I feel there are more
important issues to tackle
first when it comes to
attracting businesses and
families to the City of Perry.
Economic development is
necessary for a community
to renew itself and grow.
Therefore, it is vital that
the bulk of the populace is
included in planning and
execution.
We have town hall
meetings, but they in no
way are representative of
the residents of this great
city.







(1) I support the
"master plan" for the City
of Perry. I think the concept
takes into consideration
residents' downtown roots,
many longtime memories
and the importance
downtown Perry has been in
our citizens' lives and using
that to develop a master plan
and brand is a successful
formula. With the consensus
of the city council and
county commission the
"master plan" has the vital
support needed from our
",* Please see page 15


I would suggest hiring The plan for the park in
temporary survey takers to the downtown area should
reach out to all citizens and be extended to Loughridge
then refine the plan based Park to include walking
on community feedback, trails and pavilions.

(1) Do you support or oppose the
recently unveiled "master plan" for
downtown improvements as
well as the city's revitalization efforts?


DEMING
Continued from page 14
elected community leaders.
I would be an enthusiastic
supporter of this project as a
member of the City Council.
Residents of the City of
Perry District 3 would be
able to offer a great deal
with their "memories."
The first conceptual


master plan for public
spaces unveiled earlier this
month will no doubt drive
investments in Perry.
I am encouraged that a
lot of input into this has
come from members of the
public.
As stated, "user-friendly
and inviting," that is what
City Hall needs to promote,
public input.


IR I


(1) Yes, I support the
recently unveiled "master
plan" for the improvements
to downtown and their
efforts to revitalize.
The improvements will
beautify the area, making
the existing businesses
more attractive to
patrons, and will also
increase their potential
business.
The;plan to add awnings
to all of the buildings will


help provide shade along
with the trees to be planted.
Adding parking spaces
and some of the other
incentives will also attract
new business to the
downtown area, which at
one time was a booming
area.
The plan to add a park,
and a stage area will also
add to the possibility of
some of our festivals being
held downtown.


-..- -- -.-






(2) Do you think the city should designate the U.S. 19

corridor a Community Redevelopment District in order

to encourage investment and improvements in the area?


(2) I think
redevelopment of
19 could bring in


the investments
US community. I
new of Perry, yet it


for our
am proud
can still be


improved to draw attention
for people to want to settle
here.


Dist. m T1 V ita I D FAUi iL


(2) Yes, U.S. 19 should be
designated as a Community
Redevelopment District
because it is the main


road that motorists travel
when coming through
Taylor County. This would
improve the community


and encourage -more
people to cpme and see
what all Taylor County has
to offer.


Dist 2 gAlphonso Di]ELL.


(2) Yes, I think the city
should designate the U.S.
19 corridor a Community
Redevelopment District.
People traveling on U.S.
19 are not all tourists, some
may be looking for a place
to start a business, and first


impressions play a major
part in some decisions. I
think to do this will be a
giant step in encouraging
someone to invest in the
area, and at the same time it
may cause someone to take
a second look at downtown


Perry as well., U.S. 19 is
a busy highway and I'm
sure that company reps
have passed through here
and didn't even slow
down-let's give them a
reason to want to stop and
check us out.


IlDst 2Saul [OLSOMIg


(2) I would fully support
the designation of the U.S.
19 corridor as a community
redevelopment district.
Not only would it
encourage investment and
improvements to the area,
it would be more inviting to


travelers, beckoning them
to turn off and visit our
community.
People looking for a
place to relocate would be
more inclined to consider
our community in choosing
their new home. Simply put,


this means more revenue,
more businesses, better
schools, etc. Food for
thought: safety islands for
pedestrians and welcome
signs with decorative and
ornamental plants as people
enter the city of Perry.


(2) U.S. 19 should be
designated a Community
Redevelopment District. It
is the area with the heaviest
traffic flow in and out of
Perry, and in many ways
defines who we are.
Improvements in this
area would encourage
investments and a renewal
of growth. The community
should be brought together
to form a vision for U.S. 19
and set goals for economic
improvements. As many
residents as possible should
be included to insure
that goals are shared and
supported by the majority.
Leaders should insure that
they listen closely to how
residents see the community
and what businesses they
would like to see grow here.
A group of core leaders
should be formed to keep
the planning efforts going.
The plan should reflect a bit
of something that everyone
wanted and that plays well to
the community's inspiration
and strengths. Small towns
lose people, jobs and quality
of life due to economic
instability.
Redevelopment is
necessary for the community
to renew itself and grow.

(2) Do you think the city should designate
the U.S. 19 corridor a Community
Redevelopment District in order to
encourage investment and improvements
in the area?



Dit ngjHMkeDEIN


(2) While I support
the concept and idea
of redeveloping and
designating the U.S.
Highway 19 (U.S. 19)
corridor as a community
redevelopment district
(CRD) to increase curb
appeal, I do not support
establishing a CRD for the
U.S. 19 corridor at this time.
The Florida Community
Development District
Report (http://www.
floridacddreport.com/)
states that "since the
collapse of the housing
market, over 168 (168
of 600) of these (CRD)
districts are in default on
$5.1 billion of bonds and,
in many cases, the project
developer is in financial
distress as well."
I do not feel that now
is the time to establish a
U.S. 19 CRD and do not
feel the establishment of
an additional CRD and the
related bureaucracy in the
City of Perry is the best idea
at this time.
Governor Scott issued an
executive order (Executive
Order 12-10, Review of
Special Districts) in January
2012 calling for a review
of special districts, I feel
that given this there may be
some changes in the future
as well.
As I stated previously at
the TCDA candidate forum,
the City of Perry needs
to create the enthusiasm
of a Florida Main Street
or Waterfronts Florida
program.
These programs have
worked well in Florida
and Perry, and are driven
by the businesses and
individuals located within a
geographical boundary.
Whether it be a Route
66-type theme dovetailing
with recent tourism efforts








(2) Yes, I think the, city
should designate the U.S.
19 corridor as Community
Development District and
encourage investments and
improvements in the area,
I think that U.S. 19 being
the main stream through
Perry which has been
named the "Tree Capital of
the South," and being the
north and south entrance,
could be beautified by the
improvements the city has
planned but especially by
the existing businesses
doing some massive
renovations, cleaning and
painting, adding some
trees, demolishing old
dilapidated buildings, and
adding some incentives for
new business.

Not

registered

to vote?

The books for the
Primary Election on
Aug. 14 are closed and
any person who is not
currently registered
anywhere in the state
of Florida and now
wishes to register for
the first time will not
be eligible to vote in
the Primary Election.
Those individuals,
however, will be
eligible for the general
election in November.


and back to the time when
many travelers used U.S.
19 or other redevelopment
small town themes that have
worked well in Florida,
the City of Perry needs to
work with local business,
industry, economic
development organizations
and individuals to develop a
vision for U.S. 19.
I would support a
listening project much
like the Jerkins Listening
Project of the mid-1990's to
determine what our citizens
want and what our citizens
envision in a redeveloped
U.S. 19.
Community support
is vital. Where we have
absentee landowners of eye-
sore properties, potential
brownfield sites, and/or
code enforcement violations
there is a process and
procedure in place.
The City of Perry is hiring
a code enforcement officer,
as a member of the city
council, I would support
the code enforcement board
activities and city staff.


Elect



Bobby Edwards

County Commissioner,

District 2

August 14, 2012

I was born and raised in Taylor County and my parents (the late) Shelton and Jean Edwards
encouraged me to serve our County in any way I could. I am married to Lynda (Ratliff) Edwards.
we have 4 wonderful daughters; Ashley, Cissi, Shanna and Sherra.
I have trained and educated myself for many years to be qualified to serve as your County
Commissioner. Listed below are a few of the organizations I have been a part of to prepare and
qualify myself to be your County Commissioner.
* Planning and Zoning Board:
We worked together to improve the Land Development Regulations (LDR) to allow new industry, paving
the way for the County's Vision 2060 program. I was honored to be elected as Co-Chairman by the
other board members.
* DMH Hospital Board:
We worked together to stabilize the financial situation and retain much needed jobs. We worked
together to purchase the new MRI, CT Scanner and mammography machines. We saved jobs and
allowed future hiring of more personnel. We also signed a successful Management Agreement with
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital in order to obtain professional management and employee training. In
purchasing the new DMH clinic building we allowed DMH to employ new doctors and consolidate its
current doctors under one roof to increase patient care and customer service. We worked diligently to
make many other important decisions to assure the future of our hospital will be solid.
* Capital Community Bank Board:
By gaining more training and education into financial aspects, this experience will allow me to make
better financial decisions which come before the Board of County Commissioners pertaining to its large
operating budget.
* F.L.O.W Board member:
Working jointly with 14 other counties to oversee and monitor the Water Management Districts; sharing
views and helping to make decisions which concern the use of our water resources. We protect water
resources which will affect our county's ability to attract new industry and to maintain water viability for
our businesses, farms, ranches and agriculture industry.
I believe NO individual commissioner can make any effective decisions by themselves. It takes a cooperative
effort to work with the other commissioners for the common good of all the citizens of Taylor County.
"I will strive to re-gain and bring back Citizen Confidence in the Board of County Commissioners"

This election is our opportunity to move your Sheriff's Department forward.
Many changes have taken place in our county over the last 16 years. Law enforcement must
stay current with these ever changing times. During this campaign I have spoken to many of
you and you have voiced your concerns regarding the many problems our communities are
facing. We must make sure our Sheriff's Department is fully capable of meeting the challenges
the future holds. I will provide a new direction for your Sheriff's Department ensuring that the
old standard "business as usual" no longer applies. I will work to restore the public's trust. We
deserve better and should expect more.

Taylor County deserves a professional law enforcement agency that will:

SERVE OUR COMMUNITIES AND PROTECT OUR FUTURE.

AS YOUR SHERIFF
Si will work directly within our communities and our schools to provide resources and
programs that educate our children about the dangers of illegal drugs and gang affiliation.
I will reduce response time by implementing dedicated zone coverages to ensure all areas
of our county receive the services they deserve.
SI will research federal grant funding allowing budget funding to be used in other areas.
I will be accessible with an open door policy, be involved in community affairs.
Si will review the overall communications division and develop ways to reduce delays
in emergency response.
SI will develop county inmate work crews to provide services throughout the county.
I will develop and implement a team of certified narcotics officers including K-9 units,
which will be utilized to combat illegal drugs.

When elected as your Sheriff, I will ensure that the Taylor County Sheriff's Office
and all its employees are fully committed to:

Serving our communities and protecting our future
I ask for your vote and support.
Respectfully yours,
