were periodically dredged
and kept free of silt and

switch could save
Monday to change health
providers for employees
and themselves, a move
officials say could save the
county more than $200,000
In May, the commission
agreed to alert their current
provider. Public Risk
Management of Florida
(PRM), that they were
withdrawing as a member
and would put the service
out for bid.
At that time, County
Administrator Jack Brown
strongly recommended the
action, outlining several
issues he said the county
had with PRM.
At Monday's commission
meeting, Brown provided a
recommendation to go with
United Health Care, whose
plans he said would save the
county $115,000 annually.
"Even better, they gave
us another option that if
everybody stays in the
network, it would cut the
individual deduction from
$500 a year to $250 a year
and the family deductible
from $1,500 a year to $750
a year," Brown said. "It will
save $211,580 per year."
The new policy will start
with the county's upcoming
fiscal year, which begins
"We went for bids as the
board instructed for health
insurance providers." Brown
explained. "There were
two people that responded.
PRM did not attend the
insurance working group
they said you already know
what you get from us."
Brown said the coverage
is "almost identical" to
the current plan, with the
biggest change being that
will increase for visiting
physicians outside the
network, jumping 10-fold
compared to the expenses
inside the network.

Power line safety seminar: Summer storms, tropical weather, car accidents and structure fires all have the potential to
cause power lines to fall, exposing fire, EMS, law enforcement and other first responders to potential shock or electrocution.Therefore,
Tri-County Electric Safety Manager Rusty Smith (inset) recently presented a training program about the danger posed by these down
or sagging power lines. Smith discussed the need for awareness as responders approach and the importance of good scene size-up
techniques to minimize exposure and danger. '"The safety approach is always to consider the down power line at 'hot' until the all clear is
given by the power company," Smith said. Attending the class were personnel from Taylor County Fire-Rescue, Perry Fire Department,
volunteer fire departments, Taylox County Sheriff's Office, Florida Forest Service, Doctors' Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical

S Fishing Report
Georgia trio catches
29 trout over 2 days
BY PAT MCGRIFF
Trout and reds have been
very cooperative for my
charters as we had nine
trout and one red for Beboe
and Shawn McMurrian
of Stockbridge, Ga., on
Todd Brown and his
son Austin with Michael
Bramlette--all of Cleveland,
Ga.--took 14 trout and one
red, last Thursday, then 15
trout and two reds on Friday.
We fished with live pinfish
under Back Bay Thunders
I had Ben Swayze and
Billy Pearson of Valdosta,
Ga., with Ben's bro-in-law
Steve Cartmell of New
Mexico, out Saturday and
we brought in 15 trout to 20
inches and three reds to 26.5
inches while fishing 4-4.5
feet of water using live pins
under'Back Bay and Cajun
Sunday, Ricky Roberts
from up near Homerville,
Ga., way, had two of his
grandsons out--Cade and
Drake Roberts--and the trio
had 13 trout and four reds to
26.75 inches. They were in
4-5 feet of water using live
pinfish under Thunders.
The trout are still
preferring to bite on
offshore humps and ridges
early in the incoming tide
in 4 feet flooding, while the
reds are taking live pinfish
closer to the hill, later, with
the tide near the top.
Find ballyhoo in your area
to insure more activity from
the trout. Smaller pinfish
early in the tide seems to be
the key to catching fish. The
new Back Bay Thunders,
which definitely make a
higher "pitch" sound, are
bringing trout up to feed in
the heavily stained water we
have experienced since T.S.
Debby went by.
Scallopers are still
struggling in the stained
water to gather a few limits
between showers, while
most are bringing in less
than a limit.
Here are a couple of
reports from Keaton Beach
John Bell of Atlanta, Ga.,
had a limit of scallops ."in
less than an hour" from
Grassy and Dekle Beach
Last Saturday, David
Bosch with Calvin and
his Dad, Peng Chee, all of
Tifton, Ga., had their limit
of 15 trout and two keeper
cobia all on live pinfish.
Drake Roberts of Homerville, Ga., is shown wit
a great red taken using a live pin under a Bac
Bay Thunder on Saturday, Aug 5. He was fishing
with Pat McGriff of One More Cast.

North Florida Community ---1 entertainment, taking the
'Total Recall' proves there was
no need to remake the original
The great remake debate continues.
Hollywood has been remaking its own
movies since the 1920s, so I doubt the trend
will stop anytime soon.
I have to admit that sometimes a remake
can indeed be an entertaining movie, like
"Ocean's 11" or "True Grit." Other times,
however, the new version has little to add to
the original. Either way, however, how much
enjoyment you get from a remake really
depends on your perspective. For instance,
if you haven't seen the first version, then a
remake obviously won't feel
as much of a rehash to you as
someone who has.
I do think we can agree,
however, that a production
company calling itself Original .:...
Film should probably stay
away from remakes. -.
But then, I don't run a....
production company, so
Original Film went ahead with
a remake of the 1990 sci-fi
action adventure film, "Total
Recall," which starred Arnold
Schwarzenegger and was
loosely based on the Philip K.
Dick short story "We Can Remember It for
The new version, which replaces the
former governor with Colin Farrell ("Fright
Night"), is an average thriller set in a world
that is frankly more interesting than most of
the action occurring in it. As a remake, it of
course updates the special effects from 22
years ago, but offers little else to distinguish
itself from the original other than replacing
the plot device of a trip to Mars to a public
transport transecting the Earth.
Having seen the original, it's hard to
say whether the new version is terribly
predictable because I've already seen this
story before or if it's really that predictable.
Either way, nothing kills a thriller quicker
The story is set in a future Earth, which a
voice over tells us was nearly destroyed by
chemical warfare, leaving only two livable

"Saving Grace"-), Douglas goes to Rekall, a

The romantic comedy "Hope Springs"
arrived early on Wednesday, starring Meryl
Streep ("The Iron Lady") and Tommy Lee
Jones ("Men in Black") as a couple who after
30 years of marriage have decided to attend
a week-long, high-intensity counseling
session with therapist Steve Carell ("Seeking
a Friend for the End of the World"). Director

developed, however, that
changed, and it is very obvious
that the 2012 "Total Recall"
is definitively a remake of the

While the original

S credit here, scribe Kurt

("Unstoppable," "Live Free

responsible for the new screenplay. For the
most part, the story serves as an excuse for a
series of chase sequences and shoot-outs, but
then, that was the case for the original movie
Overall, it works on some levels, but
having recently re-watched the "Bourne"
films, it's obvious that director Len Wiseman
("Underworld") was inspired at least
somewhat by those movies. Unfortunately,
the "Bourne" films are some of the best
thrillers to hit theaters in years, so "Total
Recall" pales in comparison.
I do have to give credit, though, to the set
designers, who create a wonderfully alive
and "lived-in" future world for the action to
Farrell is a suitable lead and the movie
works when it's centered on him. Biel isn't
given nearly as much to do except run next
to Farrell and shoot at things. But that's
still better than what Beckinsale is handed,
whose Lori is like Ahab hunting his whale in
her pursuit of her fake husband. It becomes
unintentionally funny as the chases drag
on when she keeps popping up every few
minutes like some kind of demented jack-in-
Remakes are not necessarily bad by
definition, but to be a good remake, you
first need to be a good movie. Thanks to a
predictable storyline, uneven acting and lack
of anything truly original to offer, "Total
Recall" is neither.
The movie is rated PG-13 for intense
sequences of sci-fi violence and action, some
sexual content, brief nudity and language.
It's good to see that they're not simply
rebooting the series and instead pointing out
that, as the catchline states, "there was never
just one." DirectorTony Gilroy helped write all
four "Bourne" films, so he's familiar with the
The film is rated PG-13 for violence and
Finally we have "The Campaign,"
a political comedy starring Will Ferrell
("Anchorman") as an entrenched incumbent
who must face off against newcomer Zach
Galifianakis ("The Hangover"). What
follows is a no-holds-barred slugfest which
involves--based on the trailers--name
calling, rock music numbers and baby
punching. With so much craziness in the
real-life political arena, I'm not sure there's
a big market for a movie like this, but both
stars have large followings.

In honor of Lt. Allison
On the 57th anniversary of his death, a first wreath laying
ceremony in honor of Navy Lt. Robert C. Allison will be held
this Saturday, Aug. 11, at 4 p.m. His memorial marker is located
13 miles east of Perry on Highway 27. On Aug. 11, 1955, at
approximately 4 p.m., Lt. Robert Clem Allison was returning on a
routine training mission from Pensacola NAS to Jacksonville Cecil
Field when his F4H4 Banshee jet aircraft sustained a catastrophic
in-flight emergency requiring him to immediately land. Lt. Allison
was able to touch down on Highway 27 about 13 miles east of
Perry. As he was making his final rollout, a fully loaded log truck
and another vehicle came around the corner just in front of him. Lt.
Allison only had seconds to make a decision and his final decision
was to give his failing aircraft full throttle, pulled up and fly it into a
cypress swamp just off the side of the highway. Donnell Whitfield,
the driver of the log truck, said the aircraft missed the cab of his
truck by inches, "I knew I was going to die, either by crashing into
the ditch in my loaded truck, or be killed by the jet." During the
Korean War, Lt. Allison served 18 months on the heavy cruiser
USS Bremerton and was commissioned a Navy lieutenant upon
his graduation from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1952.
By ANTHONY L. WHITE
I've never backed down from a challenge. But, if I didn't
think I could win, I always found a clever way to avoid
In grade school, whenever I was challenged to a we'll-see-
who's-the-baddest brawl during recess, I didn't back down.
I simply avoided the scuffle by dropping an anonymous note
on the principal's desk alerting him of the impending battle
or by showing up with six or seven cousins in tow.
And, when my five-year-old niece recently challenged
me to a race to see who could run the fastest, I didn't back
down. I simply changed the length of the race from 20 yards
to 10 because I can stick with Usain Bolt for 10 yards.
What all of this boils down to is I don't have to always
win, but I hate to lose. So, unless I'm backed in a comer,
I've learned not to accept challenges. However, there are
times when I have to stand my ground and a challenge can't
This latest challenge started out as a little boasting on my
part last month during a family reunion in Jacksonville. "I
can beat anyone standing in this parking lot on the tennis
court," I bragged after one too many nightcaps. "Because
when it comes to tennis, they say I play like Roger, Mr.
"So, you play tennis?" asked Gary Blount, a family friend
who was probably the only one paying me any attention.
"I'm the best," I responded and demonstrated my
"When can we play?" Gary asked. "Because, I can play
with the best too."
Seeing a challenge mounting, I slipped in a joke. "Well, I
can play with the best of them if they promise not to hit the
ball more than five feet from where I was standing when I
hit it to them."
Gary laughed and continued pressing the issue. "I think
I can beat you," he said. "So, when do you want to play?
Name the date and time."
"Aug. 4th at 11 a.m.," I accepted the challenge. "The high
school's tennis courts."
"I'll be there," Gary affirmed.
"So will I."
I accepted Gary's challenge fully intent on showing him
up. That was until after the reunion and Johnny, who played
football with Gary on the TCHS 1977-78 Bulldogs, told me
he had heard about the tennis challenge.
"Let me give you a little advice," Johnny advised. "You
don't want to play Gary because he's still an athlete."
"Well, I know his son LeGarette is, but that doesn't mean
he still is," I said.
"We were playing a game of football not too long ago,"
Johnny explained, "and, Gary's still got it."
Johnny's never told me anything wrong, so I knew to heed
That's why I was hoping I wouldn't hear from Gary. But,
just like I expected, he called last Friday to let me know
that our match was being billed as the tennis match of the
"I hope you're ready tomorrow because my nieces and
nephews want to see this whipping I'm going to put on you,"
I was ready and prepared.
"We can't play tomorrow," I responded, my voice filled
with disappointment. "I had a doctor's appointment today,
and he told me to take it easy. I had him write me an excuse.
You can come by and get it."
"How long have you known about this doctor's
appointment?" Gary asked. "Did you know when you set
"No," I answered, which was the truth. "It came up
"Tell you what," Gary said after a few seconds thought.
"Bring the excuse with you to the tennis courts next
Saturday. It's still on."
I didn't have the heart to tell Gary that the doctor's excuse
from last Friday specifically prohibits playing tennis until
I'm "able" whatever that means. I'm not backing down, but
like I said, I do what I have to do if I don't think I can win.

THE REAL FACTS ABOUT TAX COLLECTORS IN THIS TAX DISTRICT:
There are Accountants as Tax Collectors in this Tax District, if Tax Collectors are not
accountants when elected, Tax Collectors worked from the bottom up in the office!
1. Mrs. Cheryll Olah, Tax Collector of Wakulla County is an Accountant and Professional Tax Preparer registered with the Internal
Revenue Service to help people-on the Federal Level with their taxes. Mrs. Olah owns the H & R Block in Crawfordville and helps
out there during Tax Season in Wakulla County. Mrs. Olah also worked 32 years in the Tax Collector's office before becoming the Tax
Collector. She actually does one of my. current co-workers, Chris Gibson's taxes each year. She has no opposition during this election.
2. Mrs. Mary Sue Adams, Tax Collector of Hamilton County worked for 20 years as the Tax Collector's Accountant before becoming Tax
Collector. She has no opposition this time.
3. Mrs. Frances Ginn, Tax Collector of Madison County had 32 years office experience before becoming Tax Collector for two terms.
She is retiring this year. Accountant Walter Copeland and office staff member Lisa Tuten of 32 years are seeking the office. I know both
of them. ,
4. Mrs. Lois Howell-Hunter, Tax Collector of Jefferson County had 34 years office experience before becoming Tax Collector. She is
currently seeking her third term. She has opposition from Paul Michaels.
5. Mrs. Marylin Wimberly, Tax Collector of Lafayette County hadl8 years office experience before becoming Tax Collector. She is retiring
this year. There are 6 people seeking the office. I am college friends with one of them, Jason Singletary.
6. Mrs. Sharon Jordan, Tax Collector of Suwannee County had 20 years of office experience before being elected for her first term,
defeating long time State Representative Dwight Stansel in 2008. No opponent this time.
7. Mrs. Deloris Malloy, Tax Collector of Leon County has her Masters Degree in Business Administration. Mrs. Deboris has served three
terms and has no opposition to serve her fourth.
8. Another of the Accountant Tax Collectors (37 of 67) across the state of Florida' is my cousin, Mr. Joe Tedder, Tax Collector of Polk
County, an Accountant elected in 1998 and running with no opponent this time. He has strongly endorsed MY campaign and please note
that all of the extended Tedder-Rowell Family is NOT for my Opponent.
Bottom line: I don't think my opponent intentionally published an untruth in last Friday's Special Election Edition, HE just didn't dot all
the "i's" and cross all the "t's" as an accountant is trained to do. He has even misplaced deposits after realizing he had reported a negative
checkbook balance and had not followed applicable state statutes (FS 106.08, FS 106.09 & FS 106.11) on his campaign financial
the past few months. I don't believe these are acceptable practices for a Tax Collector Candidate. If he can't abide by these simple
statutes on how to run his campaign, how is he going to regulate the whole State Statute 197? Again, the majority of Tax Collectors ARE
ACCOUNTANTS in the State of Florida and some of these are in OUR TAX DISTRICT. Does Taylor County deserve anything less?
I promise to fight and work just as hard in office as I have to earn your Vote and Support. Again, I humbly ask and need your VOTE
today or tomorrow as early voting ends or on Tuesday in the Primary. If you need a ride to the polls, feel free to contact me. I also want
to take this time to thank each and every one of you that invited me into your homes, all the cold glasses of water, and fellowship. As I
have stated to many of you, I just believe this is part of public service. I am sorry if I missed you, but I am continuing to seek you out and
you should always feel free to contact me.
Also thanks to the people who have called or sent messages about their early vote. It truly means the world to me and my family.

SMALL TOWN VALUES
Being raised in our district, and having worked most of my
career locally, I understand the importance we hold for family
and service to this country.
FISCAL RESTRAINT, LOCAL
Tallahassee does not understand what is best for us. With more
budget cuts looming, we need someone who will stand up and
say enough is enough. I will demand the state return local
control to local leaders.
PROTECTING OUR PRISONS, OUR
A.3. Smith spent more than two decades in the field of law
enforcement. He understands the men and women who make
up our correctional industry. These friends and neighbors are
critical to both our saftey and our local economy.
people of North Florida deserve a strong voice with strong values -
one who will stand up for our families and our way of life. Rising from
ost humble of beginnings right here at home, A. J.'s legacy is one of
ig for the people of North Florida. Whether as a SWAT commander or
e co-founder of Cops for Kids, A. J. Smith is a leader who has devoted
reer to defending our values and our families.
E( VISION' IIAKER
Florida's citizens deserve someone in Tallahassee who can make
decisions. The ability to make wise decisions in difficult situations is
thing A. 3. has learned to do in almost 30 years of serving people at
cal and state level. A. 3. Smith understands that now is a time to not
york hard, but to work smart.
SOMEONE WE C(AN TRUST
I was raised in this district, from the Gulf Coast sand to the Big Bend's
red dirt pastures and farmstto the Big Send's
reud dirt pastures and farms this is my home That is why I have been
proud to put my life on the line defending our communities and our
values. Now, I am ready and willing to fight for you every step of the way
at our state capitol.
After nearly three decades in law enforcement, I havelearned that public
service is not a 9-to-5 job. As a deputy sheriff and law enforcement
leader, I understand that service means being available 24 hours a day.
That is how I see serving as your State Representative. Every day, all
Please know that if elected as your representative, I will be there when
you need me, regardless of the time or circumstance, Call me on my cell
phone (850-251-9021). I look forward to hearing from you.

"I promise I'll be available in your community, setting up offices throughout the
district and meeting with you one-on-one. I understand the many issues facing us today
like job creation and government over-regulation, high gas prices, the condition of our
roads, energy, education, immigration and of course health-care as well as the high cost
of homeowners insurance and insurance in general. We have taxes, food prices, our
second amendment rights and of course water issues and environmental concerns. I
will work to see that a hunter is appointed to the Florida Wildlife Commission".

For those of you that do not know my Dad, Leonard Bembry, I would like to give you a
little personal background from a daughter's perspective. I believe that when you learn more
about Leonard Bembry and his values, he will be your choice for U.S. Congress.
My dad is one of the most dedicated and determined people I know. I have watched him
as a community leader, farmer, businessman, state representative, and most importantly
as a father and grandfather. He has always been the spiritual leader of our family and I
know his faith and dedication to serving you in Washington will outweigh even what I have
experienced in the past.
He and my mom raised us on our family farm in Madison County. In those days we grew
row crops and tobacco and as the youngest of three children I was always looking for a way
to get out of work in the tobacco field. I fondly remember getting to escape by going with my
Dad every other Friday to the tobacco warehouse in Valdosta, Georgia. He would talk to me
during that long ride and I remember him telling me, "Our true character is judged by the
degree to which we are willing to keep our commitments to others." I did not fully understand
what he meant when I was a child, but I have watched him live his life by this principle.
Of course Dad was also running a small business in Tallahassee which he did for over
40 years and certainly faced some tough economic times over the years. Whether it was
working on the farm, running his business, or representing us in the Florida House, I can
honestly say with conviction that he made it because he is the hardest workingman I know.
That personal experience is why my Dad is committed to the way of life we lead as the
small business owners, farmers and middle class families of North Florida. He doesn't need
a lobbyist to tell him the issues important to you, he has lived them. My Dad will be dedicated
to stand up for these issues and he is solidly committed to ensuring that our issues in North
Florida are heard in Washington.
In his four years in the Florida House, Dad has often said that his position as a legislator
is to loyally represent the people's interest. He has stood up to the special interests for the
communities he represents, and the people who live there. His seat in the Florida House
belongs to the people of the district and his seat in the US House will belong to you and all
of the people he will tirelessly represent in Washington D.C.
I feel lucky to have been molded by the principles by which my Dad lives, and my.husband
and I strive to raise our children much the same way. I know we would be fortunate to have
him as our voice in the United States Congress.
