CASTELUCCI Staff writer Block walls barely taller than waist-high give a modicum of privacy between the line of toilets that face an open bank of showers. A small span of concrete oors separates the communal bathroom from the open bay of sleeping bunks. Metal bunk beds ank the walls and circle even more beds arranged in neat lines in the center of the room. A metal locker, not much bigger than a standard tote, sits at the foot of each bed and holds all the worldly possessions a Florida Department Corrections inmate is allowed. The inmates who occupy the bunks--and others like them in close management dorms and open dorms which dot Taylor Correctional Institutions (TCI) three compounds-come in all shapes, sizes and personalities yet share one commonality: they are all convicted felons. Their threat levels vary on the violence spectrum. Those with nothing to lose sleep alongside shorttermers. It is the job of the correctional ofcers who oversee the dorms and compounds to ensure the safety of them all and they do so armed with their training, their wits, a personal body alarm, a single can of chemical agent and the trust they must have in the departments motto We Never Walk Alone. The sparse conditions inside the prison gates are a far cry from the glamorized version of prison many know only through television shows and movies. The harsh realities of incarceration and the environment hundreds of men and women face each time they walk through the gates at Taylor Correctional Institution (TCI) was front and center during the facilitys second Community Partnership event held Wednesday, Oct. 30. State institutions like Taylor are an integral part of the communities we serve, Deputy Secretary Timothy Cannon told the assembled group of city, county and community leaders gathered for the tour. In the past we have missed the boat as far as letting the community know what we dothey inmates are not in here for singing too loud in church. We have got some bad people in here. The purpose of events like this is to show what we accomplish day in and day out, Cannon said. We have also missed the boat in the corrections part of our job. As I have matured as a man and as a Christian, I have come to realize that a person is in here for punishment, not as punishment. The average prison term for an inmate is three years and then they are going to live back in society for another 30, 40, even 50 years. While they are here, we must see what we can do to help them SUNDAY The Leon County circuit court judge who ruled against the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) last week over its regulations enforcing the 1994 net ban amendment, sided with the litigants in the case a second time Wednesday, lifting a stay which automatically put her order, compelling FWC to cease enforcing the ban, on hold when agency ofcials appealed her original decision. In her decision Tuesday, Oct. 22, Judge Jackie Fulford of the Second Judicial Circuit, enjoined FWC from enforcing the net ban amendment and adopting rules regulating marine life with respect to the use of a gill net or an entangling net. The net ban amendment prohibits the use of nets larger than 500 square feet, while FWCs subsequent regulations limited nets mesh openings to two inches. Continued attempts to enforce these contradictory provisions that exist in our constitution and the rules adopted by FWC are grossly unfair to the parties to this case, to those being prosecuted for violating the provisions and to the citizens of the State of Florida, Judge Fulford said in her order. These provisions simply cannot co-exist. We cannot have a provision in our constitution which outlaws the use of all nets in shing, except use of a hand-thrown cast net; and at the same time have rules adopted by FWC that make exceptions to those constitutional provision. Within hours of the ruling, the state announced its intention to appeal the ruling by Judge Fulford, stating that the regulations would remain in effect in the interim. FWC to appeal Judge lifts stay on net shingPlease see page 3 Health dept. welcomes surgeon general hereFloridas Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John H. Armstrong visited the Florida Department of Health in Taylor County Thursday, Oct. 31, to promote the Healthiest Weight Florida initiative. Healthiest Weight Florida is a public-private collaboration bringing together state agencies, not-for-prot organizations, businesses and communities to help Floridas children and adults make consistent, informed choices about healthy eating and active living. While speaking with DOH-Taylor staff and local community partners, Dr. Armstrong made an appeal regarding the number one public health threat challenging Floridas future weight. Currently, only 35 percent of Floridians are at a healthy weight, according to DOH ofcials. One quarter is obese and the rest are overweight. Underscoring the economic impact of obesity, Dr. Armstrong stated that the costs of care for chronic diseases alone--diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and arthritis--are unsustainable, estimated to be $34 billion in Florida over the next 17 years. Bending the projected Body Mass Index (BMI) curve of 65.1 percent by just ve percent from its current trajectory by 2017, could prevent hundreds of thousands of new cases of chronic diseases while saving millions in healthcare costs, he said.

WHITE email@example.comJust one jackpot... The Florida Lottery owes my Uncle Charles. Im not sure if my Uncle Charles was still living when the Florida Lottery came into existence, but he coined the catchphrase, You cant win if you dont play, years before the lottery did. You cant win if you dont play, was the advice my Uncle Charles gave me when I decided I was going to quit my youth league basketball team halfway through the season because we had not won or even come close to winning a game. Opinions may come a dime a dozen, but advice like that is priceless. Through the years, Ive given and received my share of opinions. Some of the opinions, both given and received, turned out to be good advice, while one. So I mostly try to keep my opinions to myself. As for good advice, Im sure Ive received more than Ive given. Some of the advice I received helped me some, like the advice from my Uncle Charles, changed my whole perspective on life. Before Charles advice, I rarely made an effort to do anything or compete in any way unless I was absolutely sure I would win. I was addicted to the thrill of winning and allergic to the agony of defeat, which put me in an unhealthy predicament, especially when it came to sports. With the exception of my Little League football team, the Redskins, it seems like every team I played on ended the season with more losses than wins. It wasnt because the teams I played on lacked talent. Every team I was part of was bursting at the seams with talent. However, turning all of that talent into a cohesive and winning team seemed to be an insurmountable task for all of my coaches except Warren Blue, who coached the Redskins to winning seasons every year I played. None of my baseball teams had a winning season even though the starting award winners. The same went for my basketball team. We had a dream team several years before Michael Jordan and a few other NBA greats joined forces to bring home the Olympic gold medal. Still, when we took to the diamond or court, spectators wondered if there was more talent on the empty bench or in the empty dugout than there was playing. Every game ended the same way in the agony of defeat. And, because of my aversion to defeat, I was ready to hang up my Thats when my Uncle Charles assessed the situation and offered a piece of advice that I still follow. You cant win if you dont play, he said. My uncles advice made sense on paper and was riveting when verbally articulated, but I wasnt completely convinced of its merit. So I should keep playing even though weve lost every game? I asked him. Instead of giving me the yes or no I was hoping for, he responded with a question, What do you think? Well, I dont want to play if all were going to do is lose, I answered. Then you have a decision to make, he responded and then suggested, Just remember, if you dont play, youll never win. I stayed on the team and continued as the starting point guard. At the end of a winless season, another teammate and I mark in the win column, I thought about my Uncle Charles priceless advice. You cant win if you dont play. So far the Florida Lottery has been unwilling to pay up for using my Uncles advice without permission, but Im willing to let bygones be bygones if the lotterys advice turns out to be as priceless as his. All I need is one win. And let it be a jackpot. Then Ill let the lottery off the hook.

A-3 Perry News-Herald November 1-2, 2013 At a hearing Wednesday, however, Judge Fulford approved a request from the litigants attorney to reinstate her ruling. State Rep. Halsey Beshears, whose district includes Taylor County, has been vocal in his support of the case and Judge Fulfords ruling. These commercial shermen have had their day in court over and over again each time with slaps in the face, Halsey said Friday. Judge Fulfords ruling has offered the best encouragement yet to continue this ght, and continue we will. He went on to say the ght was not about the amendment itself, but to allow shermen to use a larger mesh size so they can sh for mullet without entangling and killing undersized sh. They want to sh, to work, to make a living just like all of us, just like everyone at FWC, Beshears said. FWC ofcials are now asking for an emergency appeal to be heard by First District Court of Appeals, which in turn could issue its own stay on Judge Fulfords ruling while the case continues its way through the system. As of presstime, it was unclear whether Judge Fulfords decision was limited to the boundaries of the Second Judicial Circuit or if it affected FWCs regulations statewide.

and teach them to be better citizens. We have a turnover of 33,000 inmates a year who are released from state institutions. Of those, 91 were released to Taylor County. Those 91 are sitting beside you at baseball games, are in the grocery store with you or might be sitting next to you in church. Our job while they are here is to teach them marketable job skills and values they will carry with them outside the gate, he said. While Cannon may describe himself as just an old boy from Dixie County, he currently holds the second highest position in the department, serving under Secretary Michael Crews. His rise through the ranks included several years of duty at Taylor C.I. and he had nothing but praise for the administration and staff here. Taylor County is unique in that there are a number of job opportunities and that makes it hard to staff the prison. I know you are in a tough situation and I commend the staff for everything they do. I personally know you struggle and I appreciate each and every one of you. To representatives from AMETC Less-Lethal Systems, Cannon said, you could not have a better bunch who youll nd than Taylor Countybut would you wait until we have all our vacant positions lled before you start hiring? Additional special guests included Assistant Regional Director Rodney Tomlinson along with wardens, assistant wardens and colonels from institutions across the Panhandle. The mornings program also emphasized the impact TCI has on the Taylor County scal and aesthetic well-being, pumping a biweekly payroll of $669,000 into the economy and saving taxpayers thousands of dollars through its work crew partnerships with the city and county. Warden David McCallum noted that the institution has a staff of 567 full-time employees and oversees some 3,495 inmates. Some 82 percent of the people who work here live here in Taylor County, he related, sharing additional gures that surprised several who were attending from the community It costs $53 a day to house an inmate and the latest count has a statewide inmate population of 100,000-plus. Another example of our impact on the local economy is to look at what we pay in utilities. Last year, our power costs were $670,000 (to local provider Tri-County), our water costs were $271,000 (to local provider the City of Perry) and $71,000 for phone service (to local provider Fairpoint Communications). So with just those three, the impact is just over $1 million. Re-entry efforts have been stepped up in the past several years, focusing on education, vocational opportunities and basic life skills, he said. In 2012-13, 88 inmates received their GED. We also have very successful vocational programs in carpentry and the masonry eld. We try to prepare the inmates so that when they leave they do not come back. We are probably the only business trying to work itself out of business, McCallum said. Once the presentations were complete, a number of community representatives took part in a tour of the prisons main unit with stops at the chapel, a secure cell dorm, open bay dorm and the vocational workshops. Those taking part in the event included County Commission Vice-Chair Malcolm Page, Tax Collector Mark Wiggins, Superintendent of Schools Paul Dyal, Property Appraiser Bruce Ratliff, City of Perry Vice-Mayor Don Cook and Councilwoman Shirlie Hampton. Each expressed their appreciation for the role TCI plays in the community. As I have said in several council meetings, the assistance you give the city through the work crews is just tremendous and we appreciate everything you and your staff do, Cook said.
