Property values

reach $1 billion

Property values in Taylor County
are projected to cross $1 billion in
2005, according to the Taylor
County Property Appraiser's
This milestone is credited to an
expected 16 percent increase in
property values for 2005, which
could reach $1.08 billion this year.
In 2004, that number was $930
million, a 7.5 percent increase over
the previous year. Values increased
,5.45 percent in 2003 and 2.59
percent in 2002. .
Since 2001, property values in
Taylor have increased 35 percent.

Property Appraiser Eldon Sadler
credited the boom in property sales
for the surge in value.
"We're getting into what other
areas in Florida have experienced,"
he said. "We've been discovered."
Property values in the
'unincorporated area of the Taylor
County are expected to increase 17
percent. Within the City of Perry
values are also increasing,
although not as quickly, with a
projected 12.8 percent increase in
2005 to a total of $203 million.
The increases in property values
are having an effect on local

governments, with increases in tax
revenues seen at every level.
The Taylor County Commission
is projecting an $1.3 million
increase in revenues from property
taxes while keeping millage rates
the same. Its MSTU tax revenue,
which is funded by an additional
tax levied on those in the
unincorporated area of the county
for services duplicated by city
services, is expected to increase

Multi-million developments at Keaton Beach and Steinatchee,
along with increased development within the city, have all
contributed to Taylor County's booming property values.

A teacher accused of biting a
student in a classroom earlier this
year faced the Taylor County
School Board Monday during a
special meeting to determine the
fate of her job.
Taylor County Elementary
School teacher Natalie A. Whalen
was involved in an altercation with
a female student in January in
which Whalen and the child ended
up on the floor, 'with Whalen on,
top. It took several teachers, aides,
the a:siistant principal and an on-
duty sheriffs deputy to defuse the
situation, but not before the child
"may have" gotten bit on her back
during the altercation.
Whalen also received numerous
bites, scrapes and bruises during
the incident.
Whalen was suspended with pay

said. "I'm very familiar with issues

a finding of fact. And the fact he
found was that there was not
enough evidence that Dr. Whalen
bit the child. He has recommended
her reinstatement," he added.
"You. as a board, legally, have
limited jibll,: to go against ;the

not change the ruling, but you may,

On June 13, the City of

officially joined JEA and two other
Florida utilities that plan to
construct an 800-megawatt power
plant in north Florida.

County Board. of Commissioners
agreed to hold a public hearing on
the power plant issue. The meeting
date has not been scheduled.

The case went before Harry L.
SHooper, administrative law judge
with the Division of
Administrative Hearings, who
recommended at a formal hearing
that Whalen be reinstated to her
former position without loss of pay
or benefits, saying that "Florida
statutes provides that an employee
may use such force as is deemed
reasonable in protection from
attack. Whalen's reaction to the
child's assault was reasonable
under the circumstances. \\ lalen
used remarkable restraint."

The rule will go into effect Aug. 9. An interim rule is effective for up
to 180 days, and can be extended for an additional 180 days.
During 2003 and 2004, recreational red grouper landings exceeded the

In June, the Taylor County Board of County Commissioners, the
Perry-Taylor County Chamber of Commerce and the Tourism
Development Council passed resolutions against the proposed changes
announced by NMFS and the council.
Also in June, the council held a series of public workshops on the then

According to its website. the council is "currently working on a red
grouper regulatory amendment to replace the interim rule. This regulatory -
amendment could contain the same or different regulations from the

Rejecting the recommendation
for marginal millage and rate
increases, the Perry City Council
is continuing to seek ways to
balance a projected $110,000
deficit for 2005-06.
"You rejected' my
recommendation and now I'm
looking to you guys for help,"
City Manager Bill Brynes said
during budget talks last week.
"What I've done is listed things
that could be eliminated from the
budget and the city could still
operate. However, there are some
very serious ramifications and
increased liabilities if you do this.
I don't recommend doing any of
these," he said, presenting a list of
possible amendments which
included slashing overtime in
every department--from
administrative to police and fire.
The list also included deleting
promotional, publishing and
membership dues as well as
reducing and, in some instances,
eliminating training for police,
fire and financial services.
Also on the block were some
contractual services (example,
spraying local creeks for weed
Uniforms used in utility and
recreation departmentsmight also
be on the chopping block.
In an earlier budget hearing, the
city council asked Brynes to look
at ways to increase efficiency and
lower operational costs. However,
the list presented last Tuesday did
not satisfy the council's request,
according to some members.
"I don't think we got what we
asked for," Councilman Doug
E\erett said.
"You came back with a list and
recommend none of these items.
Tell us what we can stand to lose
first." Councilman Don Cook
"I can tell you. but nobody
wants to hear i. .look at your
recreation budget items--shut down
both pools and turn the recreation

programs to parents. Or eliminate
the three percent salary increase for
employees and takeout the new
position for the sprayfield,"
Brynes said.
"I would never have put an
increase in the budget if I'didn't
have a way to fund :it. You
mandated that we .increase
expenses in the City. of Perry by
$100,000 and no one is willing to
pay the bill," he continued.
It has been nearly a decade since
city rates have increasedfor water,
garbage and sewage, according to
Brynes. In recent budget years, the
council elected to utilize cash
reserves to balance budget deficits.
"One of the problems" is that
with so many years of 'roll-back'
in the millage rate. IfCe had held
it..." Cook said.
The meeting closed with the
scheduling of another budget
workshop for Thursday, July 28,
at 6:30 p.m.
Not, addressed in the budget
discussions were funding for local
non-profit community groups
which have traditionally received
allocations from the city.

Taylor County Extension Service.
One of the most effective ways
you can improve your overall
health is very-simple drink more
water. Water composes more than
half of the human body; it is
impossible to live without it. It is
the m6st essential' element the
body needs for survival, yet water
is so underrated and many people
do not understand the importance
of staying pro:perls h drated.
Water regulates 'body
temperature, cushions and protects
organs, assists digestion,
transports nutrients and dispels
waste. In addition, water makes up
75% of muscle tissue and 25%. of

fat tissue.
The body cools itself by
allowing heat to evaporate from
the body in the form of sweat.
During one hour of exercise, the
body can lose more than a quart of
water. If there is not enough water
available for the body to cool
itself through perspiration, the
body enters a state of dehydration.
Dehydration can lead to heat
exhaustion and possibly heat
stroke, which can be fatal.
Without an adequate supply of
water, individuals can experience
muscle cramps and fatigue and
even a loss of motor coordination.
To prevent dehydration,
exercisers must drink before,

during and after the workout. It is
important to drink even before any
signs of thirst appear. Thirst, is a
way the body tells us that we are
already dehydrated. So drink before
you are thirsty.
How can you tell if you are
dehydrated? One way is to check
the color of your urine. Urine
should be very pale yellow to
clear. If it is darker, you are
already dehydrated. Note, however
that certain vitamins and
supplements will cause the urine
to be darker.
Water is the best beverage to
choose. Sports drinks can be used
for higher-intensity exercise that
exceeds one hour. These drinks can

help with electrolyte replacement
that is lost through strenuous
exercise, such as. potassium and

"In this case," said Aspros, "the '

beyond any reasonable doubt that
the marks were bite marks and that

In Loving Belated Memoriam of

Rosa Roberson

"Mama Rosa"
S October 15, 1908-June 30, 2004 -

We can still hear your voice. You're sitting in your favorite chair.
When we enter a room where you've been, the sound of your laughter
is still there.
It's difficult to imagine that an entire year has already gone by.
Just looking at your pictures, we can still see life in you.
You may have been ready, but we were totally unprepared. There
seemed to have been so much more that you wanted to share.
But we could feel your frustration. And just like it was yesterday;
we knew what you were thinking when you bowed down to pray.
You had labored so hard; touched so many lives along the way.
Yet you prayed for more strength to make it through one more day.
You kept giving and giving. We had everything to gain. But the
peace you now know is worth far more than the pain.
No longer is there suffenng. No more doctors and treatments. You
have at last obtained the rest that was described in God's covenant.
Everyone here misses you greatly. That's understandable, of
course. We can't help but feel saddened, considering our loss.
But you have gained eternal life and for that we are pleased. And
knowing you still live on in our hearts helps us go on with ease.
Never selfish and always kind, these are the memories you left
behind. Still loving you.

From The Family and The Burns Family

Continental take the stage tonight

Managing Editor
When The Continentals perform
at First Baptist Church tonight,
one of their biggest fans in the
audience will be Ciera Stoyer, a

Perry resident and former member
of the 2004 Young Continentals.
"I really have a better
appreciation for what people go
through before they perform," she
said, recalling the summer of 2004

when she spent a week in
California training for the summer
tour, and then nearly two months
at points of interest in California,
Oregon and Washington. For the
June-July tour, "we had a

performance every day, except for
Sunday when there were two,"
she said.
This was "nothing;" however,
compared to the week of training.
"Yeah, you could call it boot

camp," the 15-year-old said. "The
first week was very strenuous.
We had to be ready for practice at
6 a.m. each day, and we practiced
until midnight except for a 30-
minute morning devotional and
our breaks for meals. Plus, I was
away from my family and didn't',
know anybody else," she recalled,
with- something of a grimace..
But the summer experience
turned out td b"e a great one, she
says. "I made good friends and we
still communicate," Stoyer added.
There were 28 other dancers in
the Young Continentals troupe,
all ages 12-15. "It was a good
experience for me. It allowed me
to meet new people and serve the:
Lord, too."
The Continentals (ages 16-26)
have been called "America's
favorite music group" for 38
years, with the declared objective
of "advancing the Kingdom of;
Jesus Christ through the
performing arts." Following.
performances, they stage auditions
for musical and technical talent, as :,
they will tonight, beginning at 61.
While expressing much pride iri
her daughter, Zoe Stoyer also has
a message for any young person:
who has ever considered such an:
"Ciera is such a good singer and,-
dancer, but she's not the greatest
singer or dancer," she admits,
looking to her daughter to make
sure her sentiment is being well
received. "She has the desire to do
well, and that makes all the.-
difference. So we want the young-,:
people of this community to.-
know that you don't necessarily;
have to be the greatest performer,
sometimes passion overrides
talent. Following Ciera's
interview, they told me it wasn't
necessarily her voice, but her
desire to serve God and that's the
focus for this group."
Stoyer and her mother believe
the auditions can be a wonderful
opportunity for someone in Perry.
"We're not afforded the same
opportunities that people in larger
cities have for drama and dance; so
this is a great opportunity. It
. does cost about $3100, if you're
chosen to travel with the group,
but there are ways to raise that
money if that's a problem," she
Looking back on her year with
the Young Continentals, Stoyer
believes the dance choreography
intrigued her the most. "Not only
do I appreciate the work that goes
into dances, now I find myself
trying to come up with my own
moves. The song by Super
Chick, 'Hero,' really appeals to me
because it talks about how we can
be heroes by telling people we
care about them. I've worked up
some dance moves and hope I can
perform that here sometime," she
And would she like to move-up
to the older Continentals?

Power plant should be

one of nation's cleanest

If all coal-fired power plants in this country.
had the modern pollution controls that the
one proposed for Taylor County will have,
many of the environmental and health
concerns associated with the industry would
be eliminated.
That was the conclusion of a massive study
released in May by the Environmental
Integrity Project (EIP).
:EIP's study involved the nation's 359
largest power plants. From that list, EIP
ranked the top 50 in terms of high pollution
emissions from the four major pollutants
associated with power plants, i.e., sulfur
dioxide, mercury, nitrogen oxides and carbon
-* The study found that these 50 plants
account for a disproportionately large share
of the pollution caused by power plants in
the United States.
: More specifically, of the 359 plants studied,
the top 50 produce 50 percent of the sulfur
dioxide emissions, 42 percent of mercury, 40
percent of nitrogen oxides and 35 percent of
Carbon dioxide.
"The real tragedy for the health ,of

Americans and our environment is that most
of this problem is already preventable," says
EIP Director Eric Scheffer. "A huge share of
these emissions comes from a handful of
unnecessarily dirty power plants that have
not yet installed modern pollution controls,
or which operate inefficiently."
Bruce Niles of Sierra Club's Great Lakes
Clean Air Program agrees.
"Health costs associated with the dirtiest
power plants are avoidable if power
companies step up and install modern
pollution controls," Niles said.
More than half of the 50 dirtiest plants are
in the Great Lakes region.
Opposition to the power plant's location in
Taylor County appears to be using the worse-
case scenario (like EIP's top 50 list) instead of
considering how a plant built in the 21st
century could perform.
In addition to providing high-valued jobs,
the plant's developers have promised to,
spend a full one-third of its $1.4 billion price
tag on modem pollution controls.
Isn't that the kind of company we want our
county to pursue'?

Plant will pay

for its impacts
Dear Editor:
Several letter writers have made
the statement that the owners of
the proposed power plant for
Taylor County will pay no ad
valorem taxes here since they are
municipalities and, therefore, tax-.
exempt. While that statement is
true. it is also misleading.
Knowing they will have an
impact on our taxpayer-paid public
services such as schools, roads.
ire and police protection, etc., the
owners of the power plant have
pledged to contribute to our local
taxing authorities more than $1
million per year once construction
begins and several million more
per year (approximately the same
amount as Buckeye) once the
facility is operational.
Thank you for letting me set the
record straight.

Chairman. Taylor County
Development Authority

As w

so di

I saw my first sunrise on Navarre
Beach back in the 1960s when I was
young and Navarre was too.
I remember eight houses, maybe 15 if
you drove far enough.
I remember miles of white sand, sea.
oats and sunshine.
MyI friend's family owned (with
another family or two) a cinder block
home on a back canal. Each summer,
she: was granted the right to pile a half-
dozen of her best friends into her:
family's dark blue station wagon for a
week's stay in Navarre.
\'here?" everyone else would ask, for
Panama City Beach was the beach of
choice. Even Ft. Walton was desirable,
or Pensacola. But Navarre? Few people
had heard of it; fewer still had walked
its dunes (which was legal then). Thus,.
we had dominion over Navarre Beach
for seven days of summer.
The beach then was especially safe. It
went to sleep about 10 p.m. and woke
up with the sun. In fact, one night, so
did we. Earlier that year, my father had
been purely shocked to learn that I had
.never seen a sunrise.
"Never?" he asked me over eggs and
toast one Sunday morning.
"They look' just like sunsets, don't
they?" I asked.
So when .the opportunity presented
itself, I voted "yes" on spending the
.night on the beach so we could wake up
.to the sunrise. There we were: six girls,
on a Florida beach, all night, all right.
My how times have changed.
\We woke up, saw the sunrise, andr
fussed at each other the remainder of
,the day. "No more sunrises," declared
the mother-chaperones. "Sunsets only."
It's been my policy ever since.
At that time, there were no
restaurants that I remember on Navarre,
and- only a few "gift" shops which
afforded the standard fare of seashell
,windchimes and floats. There were,
however, boys..The ones I remember
most worked during the day at a surf
shop in Pensacola but resided in
Navarre. Of course, they were blonde;
of course, they were beautiful; and of.
course, they loved us best of all. "The
Carpenters" played the background
music, while the Allman Brothers kicked
it up a notch.
As we grew, so did Navarre. Movie
producers filmed the first "Jaws" on and
off its beach. That brought, a Holiday

e grew,

d Navarre

Inn and accompanying restaurants. The
crew, and the movie, put the spotlight
on Navarre. There were now 100
houses and none of them were made of
cinder blocks. There were realty signs
along all the residential drives, and the
surfer boys found themselves sitting on
prime real estate, waxing surf boards.
They were still blonde; they were still
beautiful; and they were about to be
One of the families (who owned part
of the vacation home) had an older
daughter who took up residence in the
beach house for most of the summer,
waitressing at the Holiday Inn.
We waited for her to return home
every night, and helped count out the
tip money.
I remember the banner night: $85 in
Suddenly, I wanted to be a waitress
And at Navarre, of course.
By our last trip during our high school
summers, the surfer boys had sold their
humble home right near the Holiday Inn
and probably moved to Monaco. -Or
bought Monaco. We couldn't believe
they left without as much as a phone
call. Or that they didn't take us with
them. What was with that?
There were more hotels, of course,
and restaurants too. The seashell
windchime vendor had been replaced by
an upscale design establishment. What
a difference a shark can make in the life
of a beach.
Just last year, when in the
neighborhood, I convinced the husband
to drive to Navarre. I found.the cinder
block home, surrounded by multi-
million dollar beach homes. We had
lunch at the Holiday Inn and marvelled
at the transformation which had
happened at a place called Navarre.
Then last weekend, Hurricane Dennis
picked Navarre as its destination of
choice and left.nothing behind but
devastation. I.know no one at that
beach now, yet I grieve for all they lost.
Simultaneously, I am reminded that
those of us who have sunsets and
sunrises to remember forever, are never
completely devastated.
Just like that cinder block house
which is probably still standing,
reminding us that life and nature go full
circle, and someway, somehow, find a
way to heal.

The board account was used as
match money for the project and
any extras such as repairs to the
building, repairs to appliances,
etc. Two people had authority to
sign checks on the board account,
the treasurer and the chairman of
the board,
My questions--How did the
former director get access to.the
board's, account? If the board
allowed that to happen, and
undoubtedly they'did, whatwere
they thinking? Did they choose to
dismiss theii responsibility? Did
the board ever read their by-lawis?
.When I read that the deficit was
caused by cash, loans to
employees, which I suppose is
-what the former director told the
accounting firm, James Moore and,
Co., it didn't take but a second for
-;me 10 realize who the "employee"
Swas, and that the board of directors
had allowed the former director to
have access to the board's account.
This eliminated the board's policy
and system of checks and balances,
therefore giving the former director
unfettered access to the funds and
the ability tb distribute the funds
at the former director's sole
discretion. Shame on you board of

cheerful. Scientists attribute this to
"positive ion poisoning."
Ions are microscopic particles
that carry an electric charge. In
air, ions are created when enough
energy acts upon molecules of air
and displace an electron which
attaches to a nearby stable
molecule that gets a negative
charge. The molecule that loses an
electron becomes a positive ion.
Air molecules are broken apart by
cosmic radiation, radio activity in
soil, ultraviolet radiation,
lightning, moving air flow
friction, friction caused by air-
borne sand and dirt, and falling
water, etc.
As all living systems (including
;human beings) are bioelectric in
. nature, the electrically charged
particles affect the way we feel
and act. In a natural setting a
balance of positive and negative
ions contribute to one's sensations
and perceptions. Atmospheric ions
can affect Iealth, well-being,
efficiency, emotions, and mental
attitude of human beings.
According to experts, positive
ions rob us of our good senses and

dispositions while stimulate
everything from plant'growth to
human sex drive. Negative ions
are called good ions as .they
enhance our mood, stimulate
senses, improve appetite, and
provide relief from allergies. In
their presence, the body is better
able to absorb oxygen, into blood
cells, oxidize serotonin, and filter
airborne contaminants. More than
5000 scientific documents (4).
based on research in Israel,
Europe, and the Orient support
the concept that high doses of
negative ions have positive effect
while the opposite is true'with
exposure 4to high amounts of
positive ions. Dr. Howard (4)
from the Center for Applied
Cognitive Sciences in Charlotte,
North Carolina indicates that
negative ions increase the flow of
oxygen to the brain; resulting in
higher alertness, decreased
drowsiness, and more mental
energy. Profound beneficial effect
of negative ions on both mind and
the body has been documented by
many studies published in
respected journals (7).
During hot and humid summer
days, a familiar discomfort is
caused by the fact that air
becomes negative ion-depleted.
Difficulties in breathing due to
asthma and respiratory allergies in
hot and humid air may have less
to do with the amount of oxygen
in the air than with massive
negative ion depletion. Air
electricity is quickly conducted to
the ground by moisture in the air
and what negative ions are left
attach-themselves to the dust and
contaminant particles and: lose
their charge. This leaves a
preponderance of positive charge
in the air. On the other hand, a
cold winter sunny day makes a
person more cheerful and
energetic because of higher ratio
of negative ions in the air as air is
much less humid. .
Normal ion, count in fresh
country air is 2000-4000 of
negative ions per milliliter (cc). At
a large water, fall the count can go
asmuch as 100,000 negative ions
per cc (1). You might,.hav.eAfelt

Friday, July 22 8:30 a.m.

The Taylor County District School Board will conduct a sale of surplus
property located at the Transportation Department, 1004 E. Bay Street,
Perry, FL on Friday, July 22, 2005. School buses and an administrative
( support vehicle will be for sale. All items are to be sold at public outcry.
Purchaser of property is required to provide full payment at the time of
sale and remove property from premises within ten working days. All
property will be sold in an "as is" condition. The District has the right to
reject any or all bids. All items will be available for inspection from 7:00 to
8:30 a.m. the morning of the sale. Additional information can be obtained
by contacting the Transportation Department at 850-838-2505.


fall, or taking a walk or opening a
window while traveling (by' a
vehicle). Energy of falling water
frees electrons from neutral-
particles of air adding to
proportion of negative ions. That
is why probably in some cultures,
,falling water fountains are
considered to be a good asset of a
healthy landscape. Many of our
practices increase the level of
positive ions. They are produced
by combustion, electronic
equipment, and synthetic materials
.and fabrics.
The acceptable minimum
concentration of negative ions for
indoor air is 200-300 ions per cc.
The optimal level is 1000-1500
negative ions per GC (3). On a
sea-shore a ratio of about 2000
negative to 1000 positive ions
exists to which human beings

seem to respond most favorably
Studies done at Toyota Central
R & D Labs (5) indicated that
negative air ions can improve
fatigue and cognition of the
drivers. In this study an exposure
to 10,000 ions per cc was used.
Artificial aero ionizing techniques
in confined spaces have been used
and are being used at some places
in the world. Even large-scale
techniques have been investigated
to modify ion status of air for
inducing desired side effects over
a large area of general human
population and the animal
kingdom (2).

Are you giving up? Don't.

Dear Editor:
This is to encourage persons
who others have given up on, and
who have given up on themselves.
Those people who really love you
have not given up either.
Sometimes they get weary and
weak from the load of caring when
you don't seem to have the
strength to do so, but they never
stop believing that you will
change and become the productive
person you were destined to le.-
Drugs have destroyed so many
of our people,, some are physically
dead and some are walking lifeless
with no hope or dream for a better
tomorrow. Christ came and died
for all of us while we were yet
sinners andour heavenly Father is
waiting for us to come into the
Christian fold. It does not matter
'how long or how bad, God still
loves us and wants to see us
prosper and be in Good health.
Those persons who. are trapped
into being a source for whatever
reason are probably not aware of
the despair that you feel, but God
is. The 'persons who share/sell the

drugs to/with you probably don't
know that you are sick and tired of
being sick and tired, but you lack
the strength to say no and walk
Well, I have never been addicted
to drugs, but. I have other
addictions that I have given to God
and he has helped me to overcome.
We don't get too bad that God does
not love us. There is no such
thing as never stopping or never
changing as long as God lives. If
you have life there is hope. Keep
trying to change, to stop, to say
(Someone sent me something
that TD Jakes wrote and I would
like to share part of it with those
men, women, boys and girls who
are struggling--trying to do right,
trying-to break the strongholds of
addictions; desiring to live a better
life but never seemingly are able
to break the chains that bind them.
It was written for women, but I
added a couple adaptations that
make it appropriate for everyone.
Just Because
Just because no one has been

fortunate to realize what a gold
mine you are, doesn't mean yod

one has been smart enough to
figure out that "you can't be
topped, doesn't stop you fronq
being the, best. Just because n6o-
one has come along to share your
life, doesn't mean that that day
isn't coming. Just because no one
has made this race worthwhile,
doesn't give you permission to
stop running. Just because no one-
has realized how much of an
awesome woman or man you are,
doesn't mean they can't affect your
femininity, or masculinity. Just
because no one has shown up who
can love you on your level,
doesn't mean you have to sink to
theirs. Just because you deserve
the very best there is, doesn't.

Queen or King.

Dear Taylor County Citizens:

The federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 requires that parents be notified if their child attends a Title I school that
does not make adequate Yearly Progress (AYP). In Taylor County, our Title I schools are Perry Primary, Taylor County
Elementary School, and Steinhatchee School. This letter is to serve notice to the community that our Title I schools did not
make AYP in the 04-05 school year.

Schools that receive funding under Title I, Part A, of the No Child Left Behind Act must meet 100% of the targets for
"Adequate Yearly Progress" (AYP) in each subject area. Although all three,schools had significant learning gains and
improved their AYP grading, they did not make the 100% requirement of federal AYP and have been identified as schools
"in need of improvement."

Perry Primary (PPS) and Taylor County Elementary School (TCES) satisfied 93% of its total targets. Only one target
area was missed. Target area missed for PPS and TCES schools:
,, Math--African American and Economically Disadvantaged students need improvement.

Steinhatchee School satisfied 93% of its total targets'. Only one target area was missed. Target area missed.for Steinhatchee
SMath--White students need improvement.

Perry Primary, Taylor County Elementary School, and Steinhatchee School are quality schools, and we are working hard
.fr continuous improvement. PPS and TCES improved from 91% of targets met in 03-04 to a "93%" in 04-05. We
have made AYP in Reading for the past two years, and this year all subgroups met the Reading & Writing target
areas. Only Math missed the target,

Steinhatchee School improved from 90% of targets met in 03-04 to 93% in 04-05. Reading and Writing targets
were met. Only Math missed the target.

We currently have the following programs in place to help improve scores of all students in all subgroups:
Scientific-based research Reading program for all students. K-12;
Reading First program for K-3 students; ,
Intensive remediation for all students below grade level; -
Reading coaches;
After school academic services for low performing students;,

100% alignment of all academic curriculum to the Florida Sunshine State Standards;
Scientific-based research alternative instructional programs for struggling students;
*New FCAT correlated Math textbooks for all students beginning the 04-05 school year.
PPS and TCES will implement a new "School Within A School" curriculum for target students in 05-06.
* TCES and Steinhatchee will provide a minimum of 90 minutes of Reading and Math daily for all 3-8 students in 05-06.

The District Office also works for the continuous improvement of our school by providing model classrooms, assisting in
the development of a focused school improvement plan, providing high quality instructional materials, providing high
quality professional development for our teachers and staff, reading'coaches, and providing technical assistance as needed.

The District is required to offer parents "meaningful choice options" if their students attend a Title I school that has not
made AYP. The Taylor County School District has carefully considered meaningful options, and the following will be
offered for the 05-06 school year.

Student will continue to participate in the academic program he/she is currently enrolled in;

Student will participate in a Supplemental Education Services after-school tutoring program;
Student will participate in a "School Within A School" alternate curriculum program, as recommended by the school's

*Parents are not required to make any changes at all, if they do not wish to.

-.According to NCLB guidelines, the District is required to prioritize students based on (1) lowest academic performance
and (b) free and reduced lunch status when delivering these services. Therefore, parents are advised that first priority
must be given to the lowest performing students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

To further assist you with this decision, the Taylor County School District will hold a public informational meeting so that
parents have the opportunity to ask questions in order to further decide what these changes really mean for you and your
child. The meeting will be held Thursday, July 28, at Taylor County Elementary, at7:00 p.m., in the Media Center.

Please call.your child's school or the District Office @ 838-2541 if you need to discuss your child's educational options in
more detail. You and your child are important to us, and we want to help you make the best decision for your child. The
Taylor County School District is committed to providing every student with the highest quality education possible. Working
together, we can ensure that all students succeed at the highest levels.

Superintendent of Schools

--presented by Ms. Gaylei Lee and
The Chamber of Commerce. Other
Than the employees of the
h--e-amber, there were five
participants from what we believed
-Io be two companies.
'We, first of all, would like to
_hank Dawn Taylor of the chamber
:anrd Ms. Lee for bringing this
-community such -a wonderful
..workshop. There were many
-hings shared during the workshop
- -that we have immediately put into
_:place at our place of business.

I don't understand Taylor
County. I, myself, feel we're
being "dumped on." The chamber
pot is ours to have and to hold.
Others are just going along with
the tide, their heads in the sand--
don't care if we're swept out to

on our coast, then pipeline all the

Secondly, we were amazed, that
there were only five participants!
This was a great workshop and
more of Taylor County's small
businesses, as well' as large
businesses including governmental
offices, should have participated.
We are not saying that there is bad
customer service in our county,
we're just saying that the
workshop was that motivating to
us, that more people could have

to the Atlantic. We can't let these
things happen. It will destroy us!
Oh, they do paint a "pretty
picture," but look behind the
frame. I get the feeling we've
been had. We have no choice in
the matter.
I listened intently as more than
250 gathered at City Hall on the
evening on July 6 in Tallahassee
It was a public hearing on whether
Tallahassee should invest
$300,000 into the coal-burning
plant in Perry. It would bring
Leon County help with their
utility bills. But, they can and
will go ahead without them.
Great! They are worried that they
are too close to the pollution.
Yes, a small group from Perry and
I listened ahd mingled with the
experts, environmentalists,
naturalists, doctors, professors and
educated "brains" on the matter.
I've come to the conclusion, why
didn't Taylor County "just say no"
to begin with? Why should we

have to be dragged through this
mess repeatedly?
We cannot afford anymore
pollution. It will change our
whole way of life. There are no

dividends. It will give us
enormous health bills, especially
to the unborn, the young and the

With all the hoop-la about

Portable generators:

Know what's right, wrong

With seven to nine hurricanes
predicted for the current season -
including two or three that will hit
the United States sales of
portable generators are rising fast,
and so are the safety. concerns
about using then.
University of Florida extension
safety experts say common
mistakes include operating
generators in closed spaces
without. proper ventilation,
overloading them with too many
appliances and plugging or wiring
them directly into house electrical
"First, if you're going to buy a
generator, don't wait until the last
minute," said Julie England, a
Lake County extension agent with
UF's'Institute of Food and
Agricultural; Sciences, or
UF/IFAS. "Buying before demand
peaks will save money."
Before you buy, determine your
power needs. She said some
people think a generator will
provide enough power to run
everything in the house. An
average household needs 3,000 to
5,000 watts to provide enough
energy for basic needs such as
lighting, cooking, refrigeration
and' pumping water.
Calculate the wattage needed for
additional appliances that are
convenient but not essential for
day-to-day living. Then find the
right combination of power and
price to fit your needs. Most
generators in this wattage range
sell for $400 to $700.
"When you determine how
many watts of generating capacity
you will need, calculate running'
watts and starting watts," England
said. "Starting watts are the extra
power needed to start the
appliance, and they are usually at
least twice the amount needed to
operate the appliance. Add the
running and starting watts to get
the total 'wattage that will be
needed overloading your

generator .can damage the
appliances and generator."
England said it's important to
start the generator without the
.appliances plugged in. Start by
plugging in the most necessary
appliance and the one that
consumes the highest wattage.
Add other appliances one at time,
allowing the generator to stabilize
as each one is added. Stay under
the wattage 'rating, and do not
operate the generator at maximum
wattage for more than 30 minutes.

S"Never plug a generator into a
household outlet," England said.
"This may cause a problem known
as back feeding, sending a surge of
power through the lines that can
injure or kill power workers or
your neighbors. When your
electric utility restores the power,
the resulting power could damage
your generator."
She said the only way to hook
up a generator to house wiring is
with a transfer switch installed by
a licensed electrician. This may
require a permit from the local
electric utility provider.
Carol Lehtola, an associate
professor and safety expert at
UF/IFAS in Gainesville, said
portable generators should be
operated in a safe, secure, well-

ventilated place. "Generators give
off dangerous carbon monoxide
(CO) gas that cannot be seen or
smelled. Do not place generators
near doors, windows, ventilation
intakes or any other place that lets
gas into your home."
Generators should be at least
five feet from buildings or
anything that might catch fire.
Protect the.generator from rain by
placing it under a roof or canopy.
Keep children away from the
generator, and keep it out of view
to prevent theft.
"Be courteous to your
neighbors," Lehtla, said. "A
,generator can be very noisy, so try
to place it in an area that's as far
away from other homes as
possible. Make sure fumes from
the generator don't enter their

Lehtola said it's important to
read the owner's manual before
starting the generator for the first
time. "Don't wait until you need
the generator before using it. Start
your generator every month to
help maintain the engine and
recharge the.battery. If you wait
until there is a power failure to
start the generator, it may not start
or run properly."

Elaming pean ends silence on local issues

Dear Editor:
My flaming pen has been quiet
for a long time. That is not to say
the flaming pen did not have fuel,
by the gallons,'in order to place the
flaming pen in action with letters to
the editor. But life has a way of
quieting a flaming pen even when
the call to action is ever present.
But, I needed to set the flaming
pen to paper once more. But this
time it is to propel people to action
against the coal plant. Maybe to
discuss alternatives as solar energy.
Our elected officials are always
eager to jump on a bandwagon.
Even if they are only grabbing the
last hairs on the horse's tail. They
still grab hold'and pretend it is in
Jour best. interest. But, let me
:remind you and them that %%hen
you get too close to the back end of
a horse you get unexpected stuff.
Now to the point of my flaming
,pen letter about the proposed coal
plant., '
1 The people of Tallahassee voted
years ago to stop coal generated
fuel in their county. Optimal
words: their county.
They are again voting--fof or
against coal generated fuel--but
this time they are voting about the
future of Taylor County and the
future of Wakulla, Jefferson and


other counties along the coast.
Doesn't that sound a little like.
England taxing the American
Colonies without representation?
Why is Tallahassee voting on our
future--our health? Because they
voted to keep coal fuel plants out
of the county. That is why.
The coal generating company
officials report they have a new
process to prevent pollution and
prevent health risk. Would we like
to take a survey of those people in.
Appalachia who are digging the
coal from deep in the earth. Let us
ask them how many have black
lung disease. How many have died
of Black Lung disease? Maybe
they don't think about black lung
disease because they are too busy

trying to earn a few dollars to put
food on their table. But, they are
the working poor of Appalachia -
damn the consequences they have
to earn a living too.
Let us pit these issues into
perspective in Taylor County.

Chamber board calls for power

plant to locate in Taylor County

Dear Editor:
On July 14, the Board of
Directors of the Perry-Taylor
County Chamber of Commerte
adopted a resolution encouraging
the North Florida Power Project
consortium -to "consider Taylor
County as a potential host
community for a new electrical
generating facility." The language
of the resolution is being printed
and distributed by the chamber so
that the public can consider the
board's view of this important

public issue.
The chamber board's goals are
for Taylor County to be placed at
the top of a short list of potential
sites to be evaluated for the
proposed power plant and for the
facility to eventually be'built in the
county if necessary approvals can
be obtained from regulatory
The board believes the facility
within Taylor County will be good
for local-workers seeking stable,
well-paying careers, good for the

local economy, and generally good
for consumers of electrical power
throughout the region.
Chamber board members are
convinced that regulatory and
technological advances in recent
years ensure modem coal-fueled
generating plants are protective of
the environment. Certainly there
,are well-intentioned critics that
disagree and contend no fossil
should be burned to generate

Letters to the Editor

15U All-Stars appreciate 'tremendous support'

Dear Editor:
The Perry 15U All Stars 2005
won the Babe Ruth District
Championship in Wakulla and
Then went on,to place 2nd at the.
Florida Babe. Ruth 15U State
Tournament in Jacksonville. It
could not have been done without
the tremendous support and
generous contributions of family,
friends and the community.'
We would like. to thank the,
following for their support of our
team: City of Perry Recreation
Department. Cit\ Council" of:
Perry,: Perry Newspapers, Joe &
Peggy Grantham, Sisters'

Gas: Can the working poor or
unemployed afford gas to get to
the new proposed plant? Based on
the 10 cent price gouging jump 2

'hit Florida, I think not Because
the car/truck must be maintained&
and gas needed to put in the tank.
After the 10 cent jump making the
gas $2.34 a gallon if you have a
job that pays $5.35 an hour you
must subtract all gas from the
hourly wage.

dumping ground for anything
Seerybody else doesn't want in
their backyard. As the saying
goes: Here's your sign!' .
River: What river is the: coal.
generated plant going to pollute'?
Will this pollution destroy the
oyster beds and fishing from that
location? Or other fragile
Electricity: The coal generated
electric company has not said one
thing about supplying cheaper'
electricity to Taylor County. That
; means that the small number of
the: 150 jobs' asserted to be .
available will be the only so called
benefit to Taylor County Gie
me a break.
Taxes: The coal generated
company said it did not have to
pa5 taxes. If that be so, then all
the land now taxed will be
removed from the tax base. That is
another negative for Taylor
County. Is Tallahassee going to
make up the difference in our lost
tax base? No. of course not.

th So far the negatives outweigh
h the positives in this picture.

electricity. Their arguments so far
are not compelling--still.
dissenting voices need to be heard.
Siting a major industrial facility
can be controversial. It does not
have to be divisive. Both
proponents and opponents of the
proposed generating facility have
begun to place their cards face-up
on me table and that is good.
Let us debate the issues with a
decent respect for differing
opinions. However the debate
ends, we will all still live in the
same community and we will need
to work together going forward.

Writer encourages action

'Progress' knocking at door?

Dear Editor:
It seems the only "Letters to the
Editor" published are from one
particular writer who is not just an
activist, but: an extremist.. She
would rather see Perry remain in
the 19th century and has no
appreciation for the word,
In Miami, there is a large power
plant surrounded :by $350,000-
$500,000 hdmes. The channel
into the plant has some of the best
fishing in the area--from the shore,
you don't even need a boat.
Who is fighting to keep us free
from terror? Many of the pilots
trained at Eglin. I have two in my
own family. This writer doesn't'
want a missile or bomb site for
We are paying high gas prices.
Offshore drilling is. clean aind
would help lower those gas prices:

Oh yes, you can mingle with
the so-called experts,
environmentalists, naturalists, etc.
These people will tell you
What has Buckeye done to
rivers, etc., in the area? It's called
pollution. What is the stench in
the air? Pollution. But remember
one thing: without Buckeye, there
would be no jobs and the many
retirees here in Perry.
We--I mean the whole state of
Florida--are in more danger if we
have just one of the nuclear pwer
plants in this state attacked by
We have low employment in
this area. A power plant would
give us jobs.
Wake up! "Progress" is
knocking at our door. Go for it!
Anita Baker

Letter to the Editor

-Steinhatchee writer objects to power plant

Dear Editor:
-.There are some very intelligent
people who make up the Taylor
'County Board of County
.Commissioners, the Planning and
Zoning Board, the Chamber of
Commerce and the Taylor County

Dear Editor,
I- would like to comment on
those who would oppose the
opportunity for Taylor County to
pailicipate in having a modern
Coal-Fired Power Plant, this based
or-the preconceived notion that
any coal burning power plants will
ruin the environment and create
new health issues. Believing this
.would simply be a lack of
understanding of how new modern
coil plants operate and how they
areq- regulated to minimize

Writer wants assurance

Development Authority. All of
them seem to think that the
electric plant would be good for
Taylor County, but each of them
have loved ones who will be
subjected to all the terrible
diseases that can be brought upon

them from the particles that will
be emitted from this plant.
Some of these diseases are types
of cancer, breast, brain, lung and
liver as well as all of the
respiratory diseases such as asthma
and chronic organic pulmonary

is 'injustice' to residents

Although old plants still exist,
mostly in the Midwest, newer
modern built facilities are state of
the art, it would be like comparing
the efficiency and emissions of a
new 2006 Ford to one that was
built in the 50's. or 60's. They
simply do not compare.
Taylor County has needed an
opportunity like this for a very
long time to help stimulate its
growth and create opportunity for

its residents. To oppose this
opportunity without understanding
the facts does a great injustice to
this county and its residents.
Mark Deida

If they had ever seen a loved one
suffer and deteriorate for months
from the ravages of chemo-
therapy, radiation and steroids and
then die anyway, they would not
vote to build a coal-fired plant
anywhere in the world.
However, if they think the
dollar value of having this plant in
Taylor County is more important
than the health, welfare and lives
of their loved ones as well as ours,
then may God help us all.

'Show me the money!'

.Dear Editor:
In your July 20,. 2005,
'newspaper, Mr. Bassett, chairman
of the Taylor County
:Development Authority, wrote in
_your paper that he wanted, to "set
the record straight" regarding
million dollar pledges the utility
coQmpany Feportedly made to
Taylor County if JEA can build a
c7oal-fired plant here.
-What "record" is Mr. Bassett
z-ferring to? Had JEA made this
proposal in writing to the Taylor
.:County Commission? Was this
tiine in a public meeting or,
:another one of those "behind the

scenes" meetings? If they've put it
in writing, will your newspaper
publish it?
We learned last .year that
anybody can go around town
making million dollar pledges in
.lieu of tax revenues. I guess the
lesson learned is that it pays to
say, "Show me the money!" when
economic developers get in the
mood to promise things. If they
can't show the money right now,
perhaps Mr. Bassett can show us
the "record" he is referring to.
One wary Taylor Countian,
Ted Johnson

.A good deed
:'.sWayne Wilbur (right), commander of the Sons of AMVETS Squadron 20,
. recently donated a power chair and life to, Walter Stephens (left). The chair
belonged to his late father, William "Bill," Wilbur, who died earlier this year.
