10s both sweep to win district titles
Perry's 9-year-old and 10-year-
old all star teams both swept
through their district tournaments
last weekend in Madison and now
advance to their respective state
tournaments next month.
The 9s allowed just three runs
in three games as they defeated
Wakulla 13-2, Madison 8-1 and
Wakulla, again, in the
championship game 8-0.
The 10s defeated host Madison
6-3 on Friday, then Wakulla 9-3
and Madison again in the title
game 5-1. Details on the 10-year-
old tournament will appear in
Friday's Perry News-Herald.
Perry's 9-year-olds faced
Wakulla in the first game Friday
and recorded a 13-2 victory. Joe
Pelt started on the mound for
Perry. After taking a 12-1 lead
Pelt was relieved by Triston

Daniel Wentworth came in for
Barfield in the bottom of the
.fourth inning to close the game.
Pelt faced nine batters, giving
up no hits while striking out three
and walking one. Barfield faced
three batters striking out one while
Wentworth faced six batters
giving up one hit and striking out
two. Perry was led at the plate by
Pelt who was 2 for2, followed by
Jacob Barr 2 for 3, Chance
Rodgers. 1 for 3, Wentworth 1 for
2, Grant Parker 1 for 2 and Daniel
Dudley 1 for 3.
Later in the day Perry faced host
team Madison County and posted
an 8-1 win. Wentworth pitched 5
scoreless innings scattering 4 hits
while striking out 8 batters and
Barfield.came in to close the
game striking out two and giving
up only one run.
Dustin Driver led the Perry
team at the plate going 2 for 3
while Pelt, Barr, Jonah Nbwberry
and Parker all added one hit each.
Tough defense, timely hitting and
strong pitching proved to be more
than Madison could handle.
On Sunday Madison faced
Wakulla in the losers' bracket
game with Wakulla coming out on
top. This set up the rematch
between Perry and Wakulla later
in the afternoon.
Pelt again took the mound for
Perry and was able to pitch a
complete game shutout allowing
only 4 hits and recording .7.
strikeouts while walking only 4
baters'in the 8-0 victory.
SPelt and Wentworth both were 2
for 4 at the plate with Rodgers,
Driver, Barr, 'Newberry, Parker
and Evan Grambling all recording
one hit each. Perry batters only
struck out 4 times during the game
and committed only one error
which again.proved to be more
than Wakulla could handle.
"The players stepped up against
two tough teams and gave 100
percent until the end. Our kids
played with confidence and made
the routine plays. When you
make the routine plays and then
add great pitching and hitting then
you can win games the way we

on coal-powered plant
'Decent, good-paying jobs' anticipated
Re:,$1.4 billion plant here?
Great! Now, we're talking good
We're in dire need of "good,
clean" energy in Taylor County. It
will be good for businesses, good
for our people.
It would be a blessing to have
our children work near home.
Give them decent, good-paying
jobs with good benefits and
retirement. This is what we need.
Let's put feelers out. Cater to it,
Rope 'em in!
Don't give us a missile base,
where we will live in fear and
insecurity. We don't need a big
mess made of our Nature Coast.
Go for the better.
Thanks for listening,
Litwin: Is this really a win-win decision?
SIn response to the county
commission's decision to approve
the coal fired power plant, this
concerned citizen would like to
hear about the good things this
'would bring to.the county.
One of our commissioners
talked to people on both sides of
the issue, did some research on the
internet and declared that this is a
win-win situation for the county.
SIn the Tallahassee
Democrat dated June 5, 2005, in
an. article about the coal fired
power plant, a Miss Holly Binns,
who is a clean air advocate for the

Disappointed that the city is
;interested in being a part of a coal
plant. No matter what
advancements are out there,
inherently, coal is a dirty way to
get our power."
She also said medical studies
have concluded that people who
live near coal plants are at risk for
lung, brain and heart damage, and
newborns and young children are
at risk for chronic mental.and
developmental learning illnesses
from mercury exposure.
Is this what we need, more
pollution in Taylor County?
Binns did not have one positive
thing to say about a coal fired
