A-12News Forum By SUSAN H. LINCOLN Managing Editor It was a pleasant Sunday morning when Charlie Duke came to enjoy a hearty breakfast and say goodbye to his host family in Pine Ridge subdivision. Duke had been among the dignitaries for the 1967 Florida Forest Festival, with Patsy and Jake Bassett as his hosts and escorts for all events. He was in his ight suit, ready to drive his rental car back to Tallahassee and then y himself back to Houston where he was based, Bassett said. Before he left, Bassett gathered up his two sons, Jim and Joe, and their neighborhood friend, Don Grant, for a picture in the backyard. Five years later, Duke became the tenth and youngest person to walk on the moon, as the lunar module pilot for Apollo 16 in 1972. That casual picture, against the Bassetts red brick house with a pine tree in the distance, made a memory that the boys wouldnt soon forget. So when Joe Bassett, in November of 2013, learned that Duke would be speaking at the YMCA in Ocala, where he lives, he grabbed a copy of Dukes book, Moonwalker, a copy of the picture from 46 years ago, and personally re-introduced himself. Thats you, for sure, said Dukes wife, Dotty, and the pieces started to come together. Jake Bassett remembers Please see page 3 Charlie Duke was in a training program for astronauts at the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, when he visited the 1967 Florida Forest Festival as a dignitary. He is pictured with (left to right) Don Grant, Joe Bassett and Jim Bassett. Memories from long ago Duke is probably among those young men who were encouraged to shoot for the moon. In his the true story of an astronaut who found that for success. For operation of local hospitalDMH/TMH forge partnershipThe leadership of Doctors Memorial Hospital (DMH) and Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare (TMH) announced Wednesday that they have nalized an agreement creating an equal-governance partnership between the two institutions. Ken Arnold, chairman of the DMH Board of Directors, and Mark OBryant, president and CEO of TMH, said the agreement, which took effect Jan. 1, will ultimately enhance services to DMH and expand its role in Taylor Countys health care system. The partnership will be focused on strengthening and expanding clinical services to improve access to care; improving availability to advanced clinical tools that will improve clinical quality; and bolstering nancial practices to ensure stability, DMH and TMH said in a press release announcing the agreement. Offering high quality, cost efcient healthcare is becoming more nancially challenging for large and small hospitals across the country. This agreement is one way that Doctors Memorial Hospital will continue to evolve and innovate in order to meet the needs of our community, Arnold said. The entire Board of Directors of Doctors Memorial Hospital is pleased with the support and trust provided by the Taylor County commissioners, administrative staff and our hospital employees during this process. With the continued support of our community, the partnership between Doctors Memorial and Tallahassee Memorial Hugh Poppell (inset) had turned 44 less than a month before his death; (above) evidence markers Family loses home to re A fund has been established at Buckeye Community Federal Credit Union (BCFCU) to assist a local family who lost everything in an early-morning house re Thursday, Jan. 9.

Now months later they are keeping that promise, announcing that the State Attorney issued a warrant for the arrest of Michael D. Calhoun, 44, in relation to the case. Calhoun, who has been held at the Taylor County Jail on other charges since September 2013, was served with the warrant late Tuesday afternoon, Jan. 7. He was charged with leaving the scene of an accident that involved a death and tampering with evidence. If convicted, he could face anywhere from ve to 30 years in prison. The statute cited in the warrant indicates that Calhouns drivers license was not valid at the time the crash occurred and Perry Police Department ofcials noted that he had previous trafc-related arrests. The fatal crash occurred around 10:15 p.m. Friday, Please see page 3Calhoun charged in fatal crash Michael D. CalhounPlease see page 13Trafc was shifted onto the new U.S. 98 bridge over the Aucilla River at the Taylor and Jefferson County line late Monday. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) project to replace the old bridge, built in 1952, began in October 2012. The new bridge replaces the main span and relief bridge with a structure that is a quarter of a mile long and 14 feet higher than the original bridges. The new bridge has two 12-foot travel lanes and two 10-foot emergency lanes with a solid concrete barrier on both sides. The bridge construction included nearly 344 tons of steel and 309 truckloads of concrete.New bridge now open Please see page 3 Delores Walker

WHITE anthonylamarwhite@yahoo.comWhos calling? What do you want? Hi Mr. White, a cheerful voice on the other end of the phone responded. Im calling about a private matter. Can you please verify the last four digits of your social security number? Who is this? I hollered, which was the only tone I could muster after being so rudely awakened by this early morning caller who wouldnt stop calling. Im calling regarding a private matter, the young man replied. Can you please verify the last four digits of your social security number? No, I answered. If you already have my social, then you need to do the verifying. Sir, if you wont verify the last four digits of your social, can you verify your date of birth? If you have my social, then Im sure you already have my birthday, I stayed on the defensive. He replied politely, I have it, Sir. I just need you to verify the day and year before I can discuss this matter. Well, thats not going to happen, I snapped. Im sorry, Sir, but Im not going to be able to discuss this matter with you unless you can verify that you are Anthony White. Then good-bye, I said and waited for him to hang up the phone. He didnt. At least not right away. Sir, if you would just verify the last four digits of your social security number and birth date, I can tell you why Im calling, he pleaded. I told him goodbye again. And then again. Finally, because he wouldnt hang up and because Id learned my lesson about hanging up on people trying to help me, I gently pressed the end-call key on my cell phone. As I rolled back over and pulled the covers over my head, I thought about the young lady who convinced me that it was wrong to hang up on people whose job it was to call and try to help me even if I didnt want their help. I didnt know what the young lady was selling when she called, but I ended up buying it. What? I yelled into the phone after seeing an 800-number on the caller ID. Hi, a saccharin-laced voice responded. How are you? What do you want? I cut to the chase. Im calling to tell you about the incredible discount were offering to residents in your area, she replied. Its Im not interested, I yelled then slammed the phone down before she Two seconds later, the phone rang again, and the same 800-number appeared on the caller ID. Before I could scream into the phone, a jalapeno pepper-laced voice yelled, I know you didnt just hang up on me! Well I tried to respond. Well, that was rude, she cut me off. Here I am calling to try and help you relax and you hanging up in my ear. Youre wrong for that. I quickly apologized. Thats okay, she said in her saccharin-laced voice. So, would you like to pay by credit or debit? Credit please. I was too scared to call and cancel whatever I had ordered because the young lady had my phone number would surely call to curse me out about cancelling the order. A week later, I received a voucher for a weekend stay at a beach resort in Destin. Did I use the voucher? No. I was too scared the young lady might be there. Clowning around Christmas Day is a time of faith, family andfun! Which is just what Simmie Ray and Larry Denmark were having while clowning around on the diving board at Carlton Springs on Christmas Day, 1952. There is no effect more disproportionate to its cause than the happiness bestowed by a small compliment. --Robert BraultA good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctors book.--Irish ProverbAll religions will pass, but this will remain: simply sitting in a chair and looking in the distance. --V.V. RozanovWith the past, I have nothing to do; nor with the future. I live now. --Ralph Waldo EmersonOne problem with gazing too frequently into the past is that we may the future has run out on us. --Michael Cibenko

Joe and wife, Dawn, have lived in Ocala for most of their married life. He is a commercial property appraiser and works seven days a week, his father says.

Nobody can; its top secret.he works in Washington. His degree, he adds, is computer engineering.

The new agreement calls for a 50-50 decisionmaking model. As part of the agreement, two TMH administrators will join the Doctors Memorial Hospital Board of Directors, OBryant said. We feel our Tallahassee Memorial colleagues can bring new ideas to assist Doctors Memorial in providing the very best care to Taylor County and its surrounding communities. OBryant has also committed to be one of the two TMH colleagues who will sit on the DMH Board of Directors. When asked Thursday about how the partnership would work, Arnold said, Both parties have an equal share in decision making and an equal responsibility in the outcome of those decisions. He added that neither organization has more than 50 percent of the decisionmaking power, so in a circumstance where one was fully in favor of a particular course of action and the other was fully against, the action would most likely not be taken. The new agreement also continues one aspect of the original agreement between the two hospitals signed in 2009 in which TMH employs the DMH chief executive ofcer and other key leadership roles, who report directly to the DMH Board of Directors. Geri Forbes is the current CEO of DMH and will continue in that position, according to Arnold. On Thursday, he added that DMH employees will remain DMH employees. Under the new agreement, representatives from DMH and TMH will work cooperatively to prioritize projects important to reaching the long-range goals of improved access, quality and nancial stability, the press release stated. One such program currently underway seeks to improve access to medical care. TMH is widening its work to expand telemedicine (the exchange of medical information from site to site) in areas outside of Leon County. TMH is currently leading an effort in the next state legislative session to remove road blocks that will bring the advantages of telemedicine to the entire state of Florida, ofcials said. TMH is already providing telemedicine services between DMH and TMS emergency rooms. TMH has also strengthened its own partnerships with North Florida academic institutions, Florida State University and UF Health, formally Shands Hospital. TMH recently added a second residency program in internal medicine with the assistance of the Florida State University College of Medicine. In 2012, the Tallahassee Memorial Cancer Center afliated with UF Health to boost its efforts in cancer research and improve patient access to clinical trials. In November, the DMH Board of Directors and the Taylor County Commission approved a new lease agreement for the hospital building, which included a clause allowing the board to partner or participate with a regional health care system which in turn would have the ability to appoint up to two members to the DMH board. PARTNERSHIP Continued from page 1The Taylor County Chamber of Commerce has announced it will host the sixth annual MoonPie Princess Pageant on March 28 at Forest Capital Hall. Girls between the ages of ve and eight can have their parents sign them up at the chamber ofce now. We plan for this to be a fun experience for both the children and their parents. Children will have the opportunity to dress up in what they feel represents bluegrass to them as well as gowns for the questionnaire portion of the pageant, Chamber Director Dawn Taylor said. The winner of the MoonPie Princess Pageant, her court and the Bluegrass Sweethearts will represent MoonPie at the Florida State Bluegrass Festival and other functions throughout the community. We are very excited to have this opportunity to represent a company like MoonPie and for the Florida State Bluegrass Festival to be involved, Taylor said. For more information, please call the chamber ofce at (850) 584-5366. Registration underway for MoonPie Princess pageant DMH/TMH will share in decision making Author Eric Golub will speak in Perry at the Taylor TEA Party meeting set Tuesday, Jan. 14, at Catholic Parish Hall, starting at 5:45 p.m. Golub hosts a web site called Tygrrrr Express, and in April of 2009, he published the book Ideological Bigotry. He followed that up with Ideological Violence, endorsed by Fox News Military Analyst Ralph Peters, and Ideological Idiocy. He speaks around the country to various chapters of the Republican Womens Federation, Republican Jewish Coalition, Young Republicans, College Republicans, Tea Party, 9/12 Project and other conservative groups. He has spoken in front of Vice President Dick Cheney, Michele Bachmann, Michael Steele, Eric Cantor, Sarah Palin, Tim Pawlenty, Herman Cain and more. He spoke at Libertyfest 2011 at CPAC and C-Span has carried his remarks on several occasions. In his spare time he monitors college campuses to report on Islamofascist professors; these are published in Campus Watch, Front Page Mag and American Thinker. TEA Party welcomes Golub a guest speaker Tuesday The Duke Energy Foundation has awarded Refuge House a $15,000 grant to support critical services and programs for individuals who are survivors of domestic abuse.
