County takes back $12,500
TCSS risks losing $400,000
Taylor County Senior Services
(TCSS) may lose some $400,000 in
annual funding if an agreement
cannot be reached between its
board of directors and the county
commission at a joint meeting set
for next week.
At its June 6 meeting, the county
commission agreed to give
$12,500 in back payments to TCSS
on the stipulation that County
Administrator Buddy Humphries
and one other person be added to
the TCSS board. Commissioner
Malcolm Page volunteered for the

On power plant
More than 15 people were
present at Monday's county
commission meeting to request
that they rescind a recent
resolution supporting a-coal-fired
power plant in Taylor County.
A group of investors, including
Jacksonville Electric Authority
(JEA), is' currently, looking, to
locate a 800-megawatt coal-fired
power plant, in North Florida.
-According to JEA. the $1,4
billion plant would employ some
1,500 employees during its four-
sear construction period and 150
full-time employees once it
became operational in 2012.
At the county commission's
June 6 meeting, Commissioner
Jack Brown made a motion "that

Emergency workers had a.hard

Jury trial sought in
The attorney general's office plans to take its racial discrimination case
against local motel owner Raj Patel before a jury and is currently waiting
for a trial date to be scheduled.
"A jury trial has been requested for this case and, while waiting for 4
court date, we are continuing to go through the discovery process,"
attorney general representative JoAnn Carrin said Tuesday.
The trial will cap a nearly two-year investigation into allegations that
Patel, who owns Southern Inn, placed African-American customers in less
desirable "black rooms" in a different wing of the motel and told African-
American families wishing to use the motel's facilities that "no coloreds
(were allowed) in the pool.'
Patel has continued to deny all charges since the investigation began in
Eight months after the investigation started, in June 2004, Attorney
General Charlie Crist formally charged Patel with discrimination; the suit
was the first of its kind filed under the 2003 Dr. Marvin Davies Civil
Rights Act. (The act allows th- -torney generals office to file civil charges
for patterns or practices of di. '.nination or practices that raise issues of
great public importance.)
Power plant is good
idea' for community
The Taylor County Commission is
completely justified in unanimously
supporting the location of a $1.4 billion
power plant here. We applaud and support
the idea, too.
In a day when America's high-paying,
heavy manufacturing jobs are heading
overseas, it is a great and rare opportunity
for our community to have the opportunity to
land such a facility.
The proposed plant would create some
1,500 jobs during the four-to-five year
construction phase and some 150 workers
once it is operational in 2012.
No doubt there will be many other jobs
created as a result of the plant.
Heavy manufacturing is a good fit for many
in our community. For generations now,
many Taylor Countians have derived the
livelihood for their families by constructing
and maintaining huge plants around the
Surely many of those will be involved in the
construction and operation of this new plant.

concerned about the environmental costs of

Fully one-third of the proposed plant's cost

Coal is 'plentiful and reasonably priced'
As soon as it was announced that
there is a possibility of
constructing a power plant in
Taylor County, the environmental
oppositionists began., their
campaign of objection. Almost
daily the Tallahassee Democral
has a letter from someone saying
that a coal-powered plant is the
kiss of death to those who live near
it. ,(I received one e-mail.
complaining thai the work force in
Taylor County who would be hired
to operate the plant.are not very,
well-educated or well-trained, and
their errors would result in serious
pollution problems at some time.)
Now we have the same anti-power
plant campaign benmg waged here _
It's easy to be against something.
but unless one can offer a
reasonable alternari\e to the pow er
plant (or any other type of
problem), objections and protests
mean nothing. The
environmentalists always say that
we should rely on renewable
resources, pnmarily solar and wind
power. Even the most ardent
promoters of those power sources!
acknowledge that Florida does not
have enough strong, sustained
wind to, produce a significant
amount of power. Solar is vern'
expense :and can provide only a
tiny fraction of our power needs.
- They. also usually recommend
conservation as a way to reduce
our power requirements. As a test
iof how.effective that might be I
suggestt that they ask their friends
dnd relatives to rum off their air
conditioners :for the .next fewv
months to demonstrate, their.
commitment to saving energy.
.' Whether we like it or not, the
population continues to grow and .
6ur demand for powdr continues to
increase. For at least the next
generation or two we have only
four sources of power: oil, coal,
gas and nuclear. En\ ironmentalists
-re opposed to all of those.
Existing big dams use water to
generate electricity but I am not
pware of any new ones being
Besides, environmentalists have
succeeded in having a number of
smaller dams destroyed for ,the
benefit of the fish that might want
to swim the length of a stream.
Coal is plentiful and is
reasonably priced. New coal-fired
plants are extremely efficient and
produce a minimum of air
pollution. If we want to continue:.
to have all of the electrical
conveniences that we enjoy we
must. continue to build power
plants, and they cannot all be built
somew here else." If you object to
this, please tell us how you would
solve the problem of increasing
demand for power.
As.far as hav mg a public vote on
the matter, I am opposed to that.
Too many well-intentioned but
uninformed citizens vote on the
basis of emotion, not facts.

My Best Secret
It was during 11 a.m. worship on
Father's Day that I realized my own
father had been dead for 25 years, this
I could believe 10 or 15, but 25? It
hardly seems possible.
In the midst of the preacher's stories
about his father and other fathers, I
remembered some stories of my own,
anid it was fitting that my mind was
wandering in the Plantation Road
sanctuary because it was meandering
back to another sanctuary, oi Ft. Dale
Road in Greenville, Ala., where many
memories of my father originate.
SActually, many of my own memories
are entwined along the staircases of that
church building which I knew like the
back of my hand. It was a large building,
and loomed even larger in the
uiagination of a child. The sanctuary
would seat 500 though we rarely had
more than half that many, except on
Easter.: The classrooms which attached
to the church always intrigued me, for
they sat there perfectly furnished,
waiting for someone to play the piano or
color on the stacks of paper. When the
crowds left by 12:10 p.m. on Sundays,
these rooms were strangely' quiet and
We were always there, you see. My
father was church treasurer, which
meant that as everyone rushed for the
best tables in downtown restaurants or
visited in the parking lot, we tramped
down the stairs toward,the office annex
to lock up the money in the safe.
I am not using the term "we" loosely.
As a child, I don t ever recall not being in
my father's presence for this financial'
responsibility. From white patent shoes
to black patent shoes, I was right beside
him or right behind him.
Since my father waited for all the
people to empty the. sanctuary before
collecting the offering plates beside the
massive arrangement of gladioli (always
gladioli), I had time to saunter through
the whole building--noticing the crafts
left on small tables, the wastebaskets
filled with Dixie cups and empty jars
which once held apple juice, the boring
rooms occupied by adults with only a
table surrounded by chairs.
My dad checked every entrance to
make sure the doors were locked, and
there were 10. That's when I went
around the building, noticing the
organist's shoes, the silver donated by a
prominent family and housed in the
memorial room, the Southern Baptist

Convention-generated prints of Jesus
My great grandfather was in a framed
picture of an earlier congregation, and I
often stopped by the library to look at it.
The library was usually hot; the kitchen
was always cold. The older adults
always had 'flowers on their front table.
Life was very predictable when I was 8.
When we finally found our way
through the maze of hallways and
staircases to the church office, an inner
office held the safe which looked like it
might have known Jesse James in a
former life. 'It was a substantial piece of
steel in army green, with sleek detailing
around. the four covers. When our job
was done, we would jump in the blue
Chevrolet (always a blue Chevrolet) and
sit around our kitchen' table eating a
roast which had languished in a pressure
cooker while we were in church.
I never will- forget the Sunday that my
father was talking over me and green
beans, to my mother, about a church
matter and how no one else had access
to the safe.
"Eighty to the right, sixty to the left,
forty to the right, 20 to the left, zero to
the right, and click!" I said, as if I was
doing a magic show.
other pretty much disregarded the
show, buit my father was captivated. He
paused, mid-bite, and said nothing while
staring in my direction.
Slother caught on pretty quickly and
asked, "What are those numbers?"
"That's the combination to the church
safe,~ said I, proud that I could count by
20s and remember the appropriate
I'm sure by Monday at 8 a.m., the
wheels were in motion to change the
combination to the church safe. And
from that .,day forward, I had limited
access to. the inner sanctum which held
the tithes and the offerings; I was
allowed, instead, to sit in the secretary's
swirling chair and long for the day when
I had my own tape dispenser and stapler.
Shortly after that fateful Sunday, when
I broke into song using 'the church
combination as my musical score, my
mother took me aside and tempted me
"That needs to be your best secret," she
said, winking. "Don't ever say it aloud."
So I never told anyone, until today.
And now it unlocks nothing, but some
steel-clad memories which are worth
more to me than anything that safe ever

Ohe. iight $ man haid a dream. He dreamed he '..as -.'alknri alono
the beach with the Lord Across the sky flashed scenes from his life
For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand, one
belonged to him, and the other to: the Lord.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at
the footprints in the sand He noticed that many times along the
path of his life there wvas only one set of footprints. He also noticed
that it happened at the ver' lowest and saddest times in his life.
This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. "Lord,
you said that once I decided to follow you, you d walk with me al! ihe
way But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in
my life, there is only one set of footprints I don't understand why'
when I needed you most. ucu would leave me
The Lord replied, "My pr.,:ious, precious child,.[ love you and Iwould'

meeting in Tampa on June 9, the
Florida Board of Nursing granted
NFCC with provisional status to
begin training 24 students in a
two-year RN program in January

Morris G. Steen Jr., NFCC's RN
Program Director Nita Fico did a
"superb job" in coordinating the
application process and in
presenting information before the
nursing board. NFCC will go
through a two-year process before
obtaining the full Board of
Nursing approval status which
will be granted after the first round
of students graduate and pass
In response to the expanding
nursing shortage that estimates
125,000 vacant nursing positions

developing a plan for a registered
nursing program four years ago.
The goal is to train nurses for six
of the most rural counties in the
state Hamilton, Jasper,
Lafayette, Madison, Suwannee and

Helpful legal aid tips on bad debt given
By ROCKY M. CABAGNOT
Equal Justice Works Fellow
Attorney at Law

Once you have decided which
debts you are able to pay and
which will have to wait, the next
step is to deal with the collectors

King of the mud
Justin Soroka is shown accepting a trophy from mud
bogging sponsor Troy Gunter on June 11, after the 15-
year-old showed locals and out-of-towners alike what a
little determination (and elbow grease) can do. Soroka, along
with a few friends and sponsors, built the truck from the
ground up, installing everything a teenager could want in a
mud bogging truck. The youth said he gave several rides
during the day to children and grown-ups alike and is looking
forward to the big. mud bogging event coming up in October.
time about the debts you owe on
credit cards, etc.). Here are some
helpful legal aid tips!
How should you deal with debt
Don't let them pressure you into
making wrong choices about what
to pay first. For example, explain
to the debt collector, "I have to
pay my rent and utility bills first.
I have been recently laid-off; when
I get a new job I will do my best
to meet my debt.!"
What can a debt collector' really
A debt collector collecting a
debt of the creditor can do little
more than demand payment. If the
creditor has not taken your house,
car or other property as collateral
on a loan, then legally the creditor
can do three things:
1. Stop doing business with
2. Report your default to a
credit bureau (which will be
unavoidable when you cannot pay
most of your debts on time).
3. Sue you in coutt. ,Although
the threat to sue you may be very
,upsetting, it is not nearly as
serious as you might think.
Many creditors do riot follow
through on, their threats. If they
do sue you, you can represent
yourself, and explain why you
cannot or should not pay.
.After a period of time, the
creditor may obtain a court
judgment, but this judgment does
NOT force you to pay the debt. It
only gives the creditor the right to
try to seize part of your wages or
Under certain circumstances,
creditors cannot seize your
property or wages to satisfy the
court judgment against you.
For example, if your only
source of income is social security
or another government benefit, a
creditor is generally disallowed
from taking from that income to
satisfy a judgment.
Only if you are hiding assets
can a creditor seize wages or
property before a judgment. A
creditor cannot send a consumer to
jail or send the consumer's
children to foster care.
If you want to know more about
how to stop being harassed by
creditors clamoring for payment of
debt, be sure to check out Part 3
of this Legal Aid series.
