Board seat to'

be appointed

by Gov. Bushi
The District 1 School Board seat
is now open, due to the April 19'
death of newest board member
Shirley York Titus.
Superintendent of Schools Oscar
Howard Jr. said his office had
already taken steps for Gov. Jeb

the governor's office, state
elections commission,
commissioner of education and the
state chancellor to let them know

Parking project



moves forward


Downtown merchants are closer
to getting their wish for additional
parking, with the Perry City,
Council approving a purchase
agreement for a vacant lot on
Washington Street.
The lot will be converted to a
public parking lot under a plan
being developed by the city.
Funding for the parking lot falls
under the Community
Redevelopment Act recently
amended by the council to include
"streetscaping, acquisition of
property and construction of
parking facilities."
Last week's vote b\ the council
signaled a step forward in a
nrnrppc whirh qtartirl in


Greene began by stating that the
committee had decided to search
for one large site close to the mouth
of the river and several smaller
sites further up the river.
He presented a list of four large
sites and four smaller sites on the
Taylor County side.
Of the large sites. Greene said
the best location in terms of
parking and traffic logistics had
significant en% ironmental issues as
well as a price of $2-4 million.
"The others ha.e less
environmental issues but more
traffic logistics issues." Greene
said. "The first one has killingg
sellers. The others. we sent out


letters of inquiry and are waiting
for replies."
The alternate sites bring a price
ranging from '1-3 million dollars.
"The options -sarting this late in
the game are going to be limited.
expensive and have a lot of issues.
"\We need to make a
recommendation to the
commission that ',ou allow us to
look on the other side of the ri\er."
Greene said. "the Di\ie County
side of the river.
"This is for several reasons, the
first being the limited options on
the Ta\ lor Count' side of the river.
Second, when we apply for
environmental permits, they're


going to ask us if we looked at.all
our options. This way we can tell
them we did."
"What would it take to spend
Taylor County taxpayers' money in
Dixie County?" Commissioner
Jack Brown asked.
"That's really different," County
Attorney Conrad Bishop said.
"'There's nothing wrong with
looking."
"My only concern is I'm'not sure
if the taxpayers would, support
spending Taylor County money to
build a boat ramp in Dixie
County," Brown said.

October 20014.
At that time. a group of
downtown merchants appeared
before the council to voice their
support of earlier discussions to
pursue the parking project.
Vicki Hatton of Hea enly Floors
said, "We are certainly in favor of
the city doing something about
parking. (The lack) of parking has
been a major issue."
The lot, located by Genesis
Health Club on Washington Street.
had an asking price of $45.000.

In Tuesday moving blaze



Dog saves owner's life?


-A man is alive today after his
home burned to the ground during
the early hours Tuesday and he
may have man's best friend to
thank, in part, for it.
According to officials with
Taylor County Fire/Rescue, a call
came in at 3:30 a.m. Tuesday
morning, reporting a single-wide
mobile home on fire, just behind
Taylor Correctional Institution.
Firefighters at the scene, said
the tenant, David Russell, told


them he got off work from the
prison at midnight and went home.
After going to bed, his red
bulldog awoke him by barking,
around 3:30 a.m. and he smelled
smoke. He got up, opened the
bedroom door and discovered his
living room engulfed in flames.
After finding only one shoe in
the smoke and dark, Russell
busted a window out.
Quick thinking made him grab a
piece of foam rubber and throw it


out the window to keep from
getting badly cut.
Lt. Carl McAfee of Fire/Rescue,
along with firefighters Cecil Hall
and Terry Winstead responded to
the blaze, along with volunteers
John Fish, Donald Bowden, Ken
Parker and Bruce Simmons. From
the City of Perry Fire Department,
firefighters Danny Wright and
Mike Sorrell responded.
Firefighters said the building
was a total loss, although, with the
help of neighbors, Russell was


able to salvage a 17-foot boat,
which had been parked beside the
residence.
Doctors' Memorial Hospital
Emergency Medical Services
Paramedic Janie Sites and EMT
Kelly Simmons, responded to the
scene to treat Russell's minor
injuries. Off John Gunn of the
State Fire Marshall's Office was
called.

The fire is under investigation.


County to refinance DMH bonds


--The.. Taylor County
Commission approved during its
April 19 meeting refinancing its
2000 revenue bonds, which were
*used to pay for the construction of
IDoctors' Memorial Hospital
(DMH).
:Mitch Owens, a financial
advisor, addressed the commission.


"Basically this is a restatement
of the resolution you passed last
March. In current market
conditions we're saving you
approximately $49,000 a year plus
taking a year off the existing
statement," he said.
"You're refinancing this at 4.25
percent versus 5.66 percent?"


Verges resigns; Davies

recommended for TCES
H --The Taylor County School District is experiencing changes, but district
:administrators say they will not affect day-to-day operations.
- Vince Verges, assistant principal of Perry Elementary School has
-resigned his position, and Personnel Director Clyde Cruce said former
:Taylor County High School Principal and current TCHS Varsity
:Basketball Head Coach John Davies will be recommended to fill the
position.
- ,Former Perry Elementary School Dean Shelley Strickland has been
-appointed Steinhatchee School principal, after the resignation of Gerald
SOliver, who resigned for personal reasons.
S"We have made some changes because of resignations," Superintendent
of Schools Oscar Howard Jr. said, "but we all feel that there will be no
,: disruption in the school district.
- "All the players have been exemplary in their work," he added. "We
always hate to see good employees go, but that's the way it is. John has
plenty of experience in administration, so we really feel, if appointed, that
he will just step in and take over without missing a beat."


Commissioner Clay Bethea asked.
"Yes. These bonds are credit
enhanced by an insurance policy.
The purpose of the credit
enhancement is to allow the
county to obtain the highest level
of credit rating, AAA. We
compared what the county would
pay without the credit
enhancement and then we factored
in the cost of the credit
enhancement and the value
obtained from interest rates,"
Owens explained.
Commissioner Jack Brown
made a, motion to, pass the
resolution and Commissioner Pat
Patterson offered a second. The
measure passed 5-0.
In a memorandum dated April 8,
addressed to County Administrator
Buddy Humphries, Joseph Stanton
of the law firm Akerman
Sentefield said, "County staff and
the finance team have now
obtained on the county's behalf a
commitment from Finance
Guaranty Insurance Corporation to
provide a bond insurance policy
guarantying the payment of debt
service on the proposed refunding
bond."


In August 1999, the board
authorized a special referendum
to levy a new one-cent Small
County Surtax for a period not to
exceed 30 years for the purpose of
paying the cost of constructing
and equipping a new hospital.
Taylor County voters approved the
referendum Oct. 5 of that year.

Howard said. "Then a

decision.
"It will be hard to fill Shirley's
chair," Howard added. "She really
cared about the children of this
county and with the experience she
possessed, brought a lot of
knowledge to the table when it
came to making decisions."

"It's worth looking at if we
could save several million
dollars," Commissioner Clay
Bethea said. "I don't like the idea,
but we can look."
"There's a plan in Dixie County
we might, be able to join," Greene
said.
"There would be less
environmental issues and costs
with a joint project. It'might be
easier io get permits."
"What happens if we build it
over there and then \e get into an
argument *.ith our brethren in
Dixie County?" Brown asked.
"We're just looking for.
permission to look over there.'i
Greene said.
Page pointed out that there is
currently a boat ramp on the Dixie
County side of the river, but
"they're basically going to shut


that down. They sold the lot next
to it. When the new owner puts
up a fence, there will only be 60
feet to turn around to put your
boat in."
The commissioners then agreed '
to allow the committee to expand
its search for locations on the
Dixie County side of the river.
"I think that this board should
in some fashion notify the Dixie
County Board of County
Commissioners at this point and
let them know we support the
efforts of this group," County


Administrator Buddy Humphries
said.,

doing that on our side you Would
want to be notified."
"Can you do that?" Gunter
asked.
"Yes," Humphries said.

good model-for this," Clay Bethea
said. "They have an interlocal
agreement. As both communities

ove Taylor County


By DAWN TAYLOR
Director
Locally, tourism is a big
industry I know there are skeptics
out there who are right now
thinking. "Right. Tourism in
Taylor County? We don't have
Disneyland. so wh\ would tourists
come here?"


The answer is simple. For a
number of years travel trends have
shown that nature, eco-tourism
and culture are big draws for
visitors.

People enjoy the outdoors, they
like learning about history and
they, love to experience
communities different from their


own. They like places like Taylor
County.
We recognize the value of what
we have to offer and are doing our
part to encourage the success of
our local tourism industry.
Each year the Perry-Taylor
County Chamber of Commerce
contracts with the Taylor County
Tourism Development Council to


provide visitor assistance and
tourism marketing services.
We maintain five welcome
centers in the Taylor County area
for visitors to visit and obtain
important tourism information
about our area.
We offer an extensive collection
of brochures on what there is to do
and see in Taylor County at these
centers as well as a complete
welcome center at the chamber
office with information on the
entire state of Florida.
If you have not ben, to any of
these welcome centers, please stop
by and see what we offer. You
may be surprised to learn
something new about the
community.
Our staff also helps groups
when they come to town. We
.provide visitor packets with a
wealth of information on all the
places to see, activities to join in
on and events to attend.
In addition to meeting the needs
of visitors, we actively market
Taylor County as a place to visit.
Over the years, the chamber has
developed events that help us
market our county, such as the


Florida State Bluegrass Festival:
Each year we add new promotions
focused on water recreation, in-
shore & off-shore fishing, fly
fishing and hunting.
In addition to sponsoring local
tourism events, we host dozens of
writers from prominent tourism
and fishing magazines such as
Florida Sportsman Magazine,
Florida Travel and Southern
Living, just to name a few, who
write about our area promoting the
many assets we have.
Finally, I can't finish without
mentioning the role our websites
have taken in promoting the
region. Our web sites reach
thousands of potential visitors
each year.
The official chamber website
is www.taylorcountychamber.com
and our official tourism website is
www.TaylorFlorida.com.
We know we have a great
community located in a beautiful
region. More and more visitors
are discovering what we have and
want to experience it too. We are
committed to the -task of helping
them have a great time, as they
help build our local economy.

NFCC


Making a $$ impact locally


In recent speaking engagements.
Morris G. Steen Jr.. president of
North Florida Community
College. has been reminding'
-TMfilltiy leaders and residents
that NFCC makes a significant
economic impact on the local
economy. He reports:
The college's annual payroll of
$5.5 million translates into a
$38.5 million economic impact in
Madison and surrounding counties.
The college is a major source
of employment, with 120 full-
time employees and 100 or so
parttime or adjunct instructors.
More than fifty percent of NFCC
employees are former NFCC
students.
S'Since 2001 the college has
provided over $6 million in
scholarships and financial aid to
its students, most of which 82%c
or so come from the local area.
SFinally, dual enrollment which,
allows qualified high school
students to attend college classes
has amounted to over $1.4 million
and ,35,605 free college credit
hours since 1994.


Steen also emphasizes that
NFCC is often a leader in
educational initiatives which
translate into big benefits for area
residents.

SStudents who live, work and
raise families in the area don't
have to lea e home or travel long
distances to get four-year degrees.
FAMU and Saint Leo University
now offer five bachelor degrees on
the NFCC campus.
S The Rural Community
College Initiative through which
NFCC works with local
community leaders to strengthen
plans for growth and economic
development.
New programs on the horizon
are:
The long awaited registered
nursing program will accept
students for its first class in
January 2006 if the college
receives preliminary approval to
establish the program from the
Florida State Board of Nursing.
The program is currently going
through the state board approval
process.
*,NFCC's application for an


Americorps grant which, if funded,
will train college mentors to work
with local school district students.
Steen, who makes frequent
public appearances- throughout the
six-counts NFCC district, says
that he likes nothing more than
telling people what a wonderful


resource the college is and h
important it is to the No
Florida area.

In an effort to help Taylor
County residents understand how
mosquito control operates, the,
county staff has put together the
following information in the
question and answer format.:
Q. Why don't you spray on a
routine schedule?
A. According to state law,
mosquito spraying is only to occur
when there is a definite need,
based upon scientific evidence. As
the county's program is currently
very limited, the only data
available is citizen complaints.
Each 'day, the staff reviews the
number of complaints from each
area of the county and determines
if spraying is necessary and within
the regulations. For example,
when 10 calls are received county-,
wide on a given day, this is not
,usually indicative of a problem.
However, when 10 calls are.
received from the Beaches or the
. Woods Creek neighborhood, this
means that a problem may exist.
State law also requires that
;complaints be verifiedias much as
possible and county staff will
attempt to do so.
Q. How effective is spraying by
the mosquito trucks?
A. Spraying by truck, known as
"ground adulticiding," is relatively
ineffective in a large, rural area
like Taylor County. Under ideal
conditions, the spray moves out
150 ft. from each side of the
moving vehicle. In suburban areas
like the City of Perry or
Steinhatchee, the streets are close
together because the lot sizes are
small. Spraying is very effective
in such areas. However for the rest
of the county, where lot sizes are
large, the spray may not even
reach your house if it is 150 feet
or more from the road.
Q. If the spray won't reach my
house, why don't you come down
my driveway?
A. The county is set up into 12
spray zones. We spray two zones
each night (under normal
conditions) so it takes six nights to
spray the entire county. Each zone
takes 4 to 6 hours to complete. If


the drivers were to spray down
everyone's driveway, it would take
almost two nights for each zone
meaning it would be almost one
month to complete the entire
county. The second issue is safety
and, liability. Driving on private
property at night is always a cause
for concern. Soft spots, children's
toys, animals running loose are
always g danger to the vehicle.
Q. Why don't you do more
spraying by airplane? This always
seems to work real well.
A. Spraying by airplane, known
as "aerial adulticiding" is very
effective, but also very expensive.
The state has its own airplane
which was used three years ago
due to a medical alert for the West
Nile Virus being issued for the
county. Last year, because of all
the storms, the state contracted for
spraying for many counties in
Florida, including Taylor County.
The cost of that one spray mission
in 2004. was over $150,000 and
covered the most heavily
populated areas or approximately
one-quarter of the entire county.
The entire mosquito control
budget is less than $100,000 per
year. For effective control the
entire summer (assuming normal
rainfall) aerial spraying would
have to be performed at least once
a month at a cost of $900,000 per
year!
Q. You mentioned.the term
"ideal conditions" earlier. What
are ideal conditions?
A. The type of spraying most
commonly used for adult
mosquitoes is know as Ultra Low
Volume or ULV. Some folks may
remember the good old days when
chemicals were mixed with diesel
fuel and heated, which produced a
heavy fog. Due to environmental
concerns, this method is virtually
non-existent today. ULV spraying
is the dispersal of tiny droplets of
pesticide; they are smaller than the
diameter of a human hair. In order
to get the pesticide to spread
properly, weather conditions must

Free land assistance


available to owners


The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services, Division of Forestry, has
announced that it is currently
holding a sign-up for enrollment
in the Forest Land Enhancement
Program (FLEP) through June 13.

This program, authorized under ,
the 2002 Farm Bill, is available to
non-industrial private forest
landowners on a 75-25 cost share
basis. Eligible practices include,
but. are not limited to: site
preparation, tree planting and
prescribed burning activities.
Landowners who own at least 10
acres but no more than 10,000
acres of land who have a multiple-
resource practice plan will be
eligible to receive funding
assistance under FLEP. A
maximum of $10,000 will be
.available for each qualifying
landowner over the life of the
program as reimbursement for
incurred expenses for approved


practices.
Almost half of the state's 14
million acres of forestland is
owned by private non-industrial
landowners. According to national,
regional and statewide landowner
surveys, most forest landowners
don't have a management plan for
their property. The state's
allocation tnder the program will
be used for implementation of
forest practices prescribed in
existing or newly developed
management plans.
Landowners can obtain
application forms from their local
Division of Forestry office and
from other cooperating agencies.
The Division of Forestry's
foresters will provide technical
assistance to landowners and will
be the local contact persons for
participating landowners.
For more information, contact
Adam Parden, Taylor County
forester, at (850) 838-2286 or visit

Writer shares vision




for Veterans Park


reiir Editor:
-What to do with Veterans Park?
I have my own vision.
The lot is between Jefferson and
Washington streets. It is across
the street from the park on
Washington and Center streets
with the duck pond, etc. A
laundromat is the to north in back
of the property.
-First all, we should plant a row
of natural cedars to obscure the
view of the laundromat and give a
backdrop for the veterans
monument. (I think the cedars are
appropriate as I have seen them
grow on old battlefields in
Virginia and other places.)
.-A few flowering dogwoods,
.crepe myrtles and crab apples
wouldd add further interest and
.beauty. Azaleas should be planted
along the sidewalks.
I -I'm my mind, I see 9a high
v/ertical monument of white"
:'marble or granite. On top of the


monument I see an American
eagle. At the eagle's feet is planted
the American seal of red, white
and blue. On both sides of the
monument are flag poles. Beneath
the flag poles and monument is a
wall on which plaques can be
affixed. All the names of veterans
of Taylor County should be there
with open space for future
additions.
A small fountain may be in the
center on top of a rock garden of
.crushed red brick, white marble
stones and blue/black lava rocks.
The rock garden should be
consistent throughout the park (it
is low on maintenance).
Low-growing green and'
variegated "tahi jumpers" and
variegated verbena red, white,
purple and pink should be on
some rock mounds while
gardenias, camellias and roses
grace others. Yellow jasmine
could climb on trellises. We


should be creative in flowers of
seasons, which are not dormant or
messy most of the year, Plant
bulbs, lilies, etc.
An attractive walk should lead
one through this park where one
can rest, visit or meditate on well
placed, fixed, wrought-iron
benches. May it be a refreshing
stop on our "Nature Coast" where
one may see bird and Martin
houses. We may even spill over
.Washington Street to 'Center
Street to beautify the other park
with the duck pond and picnic
tables.
All this should not cost a
fortune. Many things could be
donated. I have cedars.. Some
people may donate benches, rose
bushes, camellias, azaleas. etc.
Time, energy--what do you think?
Perhaps I'm just a painter of
rainbows. I see visions,of what
could be.

Continued from page B-1
be as close, to ideal as possible.
This means temperature and wind
speed must be taken into
consideration before spraying
takes place. Wind speeds should
be less than 10 miles per hour and
the best temperature range is
between 55 and 85 degrees.
Q. Why is temperature so
important?
A. When the temperature is
below 55 degrees, mosquito
activity starts to decrease. In order
Sfor the chemical to work properly,
it must come in contact with the
adult mosquito while it is flying or
resting in the open. The more the
mosquitoes are flying, the better
the chance the spray will hit them.
When the temperature gets too
high, the tiny chemical droplets
become very volatile and simply
disperse up into the air. You may
recall that we normally don't start
spraying until after 9:00 PM
during the summer months. This is
because the ground. is so hot (did
you ever see the heat waves
coming off the pavement when
you look into the distance?) that
the droplets are carried straight up
into the air and evaporate, away
from the mosquitoes which as a
rule stay relatively .close to the
ground. You may also have
noticed that we do not spray when
it is raining. Again, the droplets
are so small that they are
immediately knocked down to the
ground if they come in contact
with a raindrop.
Q. What are the most important
things for the homeowner to do?
A. Always check around your
house and yard for anything that
holds, water. Mosquitoes can lay
their eggs in something as small as
a bottle cap. Tires, wheelbarrows,

the Legislators that were chosen
for the job of negotiating the
state's billion dollar budget. Rep.
Kendrick is determined to keep up
with Florida's growing economy,
while maintaining focus, on -the
needs of Floridians.
"Our number one priority is to
craft a state budget that will meet
the priorities and the values of the
citizens of this state," said Rep.
Kendrick.
Rep. Kendrick's chief
responsibility will be to help
resolve the differences between the
House and Senate Agriculture and
Environment budget.
The Agriculture and
Environment Committee will
review budget allocations for the
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services, the'
Department of Citrus, Department
of Environmental Protection and
the Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
Governor Bush has recommended a
budget totaling $2.8 billion, for
all four agencies.
The Agriculture and
Environment Appropriations
committee oversees the budget for
several areas that are vital to,
Florida. Saving Florida's
everglades, land acquisitions,
beach re-nourishment and
restoration, promoting and
preserving Florida's agriculture,
state parks, enhancing the Wildlife
Commission's response
capabilities and preserving the
Florida Keys are areas that could
not thrive without appropriate
budgeting.
Rep. Kendrick is honored at the
opportunity to serve on the Budget
Conference Committee. The new
state budget will begin on July 1
of this year and will end on June
30, 2006.
