commission Monday that the
TCDA was willing to lead the
hearing process.
North Florida Power Project
(NFPP), run by a consortium
including Jacksonville Eleptric
Authority (JEA), Florida
Municipal Power Agency, Reedy
Creek Improvement District and
the City of Tallahassee, is currently
looking to site the $1.4 billion,

800-megawatt plant somewhere in
North Florida.
The consortium has agreed to be
represented at the hearing and
requested that the date be
scheduled during the second, or
third week of September to assure
their attendance, Breer said.
The project is seeking a 2,500 to
3,000 acre site in North Florida for
the plant, which is expected to

create up to 1,500 construction jobs
and some 150 full-time jobs when
it goes into operation in 2012.
Taylor County is one of three
potential sites the consortium is
reviewing, said Jon Eckenback,

Ga. man, 27, injured in shooting

A Georgia man is in Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital after being shot
during a fight late Saturday night at
the Infernal Club.
According to a report filed by
Perry Police Department Ptl. Brian
Curry, a call came in after midnight
regarding a shooting victim at
Doctors' Memorial Hospital. who

had been wounded in the right side identified the 27-year-old victim as

of his chest.
"In the emergency room." Curry
said, "I made contact with the two
black males who brought the
victim in."
Curry said one of the men told
him he did not know the victim or
who shot him. The other man

"his cousin." but also said he did
not see the shooter.
Several people soon. began
arriving at the hospital who had
been at the club during the
shooting, according to Curry's
There were conflicting stories,

overcomes deficit

Deep cuts in overtime, coupled
with the deletion of a proposed
new maintenance position. helped
balance the City of Perry's
proposed budget for 2005-06.
Council members have grappled
with a projected $145.000 deficit
since budget talks began, charging
City Manager Bill Brynes with the
task of finding cost-saving
measures among the city's $7.12
million expenditures.
Brynes initial recommendation
called for marginal increases in
fees and millage rates; however,
the council rejected those options
and asked that he. instead, look at
ways to save through increased
efficiency among departments.
Brynes returned to the table with
budget amendments totaling some
$40,900 in cuts to overtime
allocations, promotional activities
and training. Included among those

were $1,000 set aside in the fire
department for educational
activities (the City Fire Clown
program at the schools) as well as a
reduction in requested overtime
hours for both the police and fire
"I've also taken out the sewer
position for the spray field, which
saves another $30.000, and
increased what we expect from
state revenue by $20,000. I'\e also
.learned that the school board has
added $5,000 to the amount they
plan to give us for football field, so
between all that, it eliminates
$95,900. I propose we use a little
more gas tax dollars 10 offset the
remaining shortfall," Brynes told
the council during a budget hearing
The council agreed to move
forward with this proposal, but also
asked Brynes to re-address

$750,000 in grants

awarded for sewer
Congressman Allen Boyd. a member of the House Appropriations
Committee, voted Friday in favor of the Department of Interior
Appropriations Conference Report (HR 2361), which included $750,000
to assist with the construction of a centralized wastewater system in small
communities within rural Taylor County.
The Suwannee River Water Management Disinct will receive the funds
for phase two of the project from the State and Tribal Assistance Grants
(STAG) for the elimination of septic systems, allowing for the extension of
"sewer lines into Dekle Beach, Dark Island and Fish Creek of Taylor
County. A centralized sewer system will alleviate the water quality
problems in Taylor County's coastal region, project supporters said.
"Failing septic systems, many of which do not meet current regulatory
standards, had become a serious health concern due to bacterial
contamination of coastal waters. Health advisories were posted at the

but the common element
throughout all interviews was that
the victim had been in a fight, and
as soon as a couple of punches
were thrown, gunshots rang out
and the victim fell to the floor.
According to the report. the
bullet entered the victim's right
chest and "lodged into his muscle
beneath the right shoulder blade.'.
He was transported to

hearing in light of reports that JEA,
which is spearheading NFPP, is
hoping to have a site selected
within two months, perhaps as
early as August.
"The public hearing will be held
regardless of whether a site is
selected before then," Breer said.
According to the plan Breer
presented, the power consortium
would be provided time to make a
presentation, which would be:
followed by a question and answer

for complex!

After negotiating with the
contractor, the Taylor County
Sports Complex is still short some-:
$200,000 for Phase 1 construction.
That's according to, County :.
Administrator Buddy Humphries,:-
who addressed the county
commission Monday night.
At the commissions June 21
meeting, Slone Associates was
selected as contractor for the
project with a bid of $1,367,488.
The commission,: uponi the
recommendation of County
Engineer Kenneth Dudkl~; and ih
tbid committee, did no approve a
specific amount for the contract'
because the bid amount exceeded
the available funds in the sports
complex account.
According figures Dudley
presented at that meeting, which
he labeled "for discussion
purposes only," available funds
were $1,158,582.
Previous contracts with Russell
Daniel for irrigation ($125,000)
and MUSCO and Progress Energy
for electrical and lighting
($165,250), as well as additional
costs for the inmate crew and
equipment, brought the total cost
for Phase 1 to $1,712,738.
With $57,750 of available grants
and donations, the project had a,.
deficit of $496,405.
Dudley then listed possible cost
saving measures and alternative
funding avenues which could

to take form.
- The committees have been
tasked to examine and consider
various avenues of consolidating
---services between the city anti the
county. q
After the commission and
council discussed various
departments duplicated on both
levels, they decided to-concentrate
on the animal control and building
departments first.
The resulting committees will
consist of:
S--One county commission, one
.city council member.
S--One citizen appointed by the
county; one citizen appointed by
the city.
--One county employee; one
S--Two department managers, one
iach from the county and city.

Who will

keep park?

The fate of three city parks rests
in the hands of volunteers.
Early in July, the Perry City
Council proposed closing three
longtime parks--Folsom Park on
Center Street, Brince.Hendry Park
in the Colonial Homes
Subdivision and Dr. Baker Park
behind Marshall Health &
Rehabilitation Center--as a way to
free up maintenance hours in its
recreation department.
Last week, City Manager Bill
Brynes said that Marshall Health
had expressed an interest in
keeping Baker Park open by
assuming maintenance of the
"What I'd like to do is see if
some of the residents in Colonial
Homes would like to do the same
for Brince Hendry Park and if
anyone is interested in
maintaining Folsom Park. All
we're really talking about is taking
over mowing," Brynes said. '
Councilman Alphonso Dowdell
said he had received a number of
calls regarding the proposed
closure of the parks; Councilman
Don Cook said he had one call
relating to Folsom Park.
Anyone interested coordinating
efforts to maintain the parks may
contact Brynes at 584-7161.

Woods chips will be flying as the
50th annual Florida Forest Festival
welcomes the 'Ironman' of
lumberjack sports for two days of
high-octane performances.
Co-sponsored by Progress
Energy, the Irohjack Lumberjack
Timber Team will perform at
Forest Capital Park on Friday, Oct.
21, during the annual Heritage Day

Tours for area elementary students,
Three shows will be presented
Saturday, Oct. 22, at 1:30 p.m.,
2:30 p.m. and 4 p.m.
Top athletes from across the
country will pit their skills and
muscle against one another in 10
distinctly different events:
springboard chop, single buck,
underhand chop, obstacle pole
chokerman's race, axe throw, speed

birling, tree topping, stock saw,

Encourages personal research

Writer supports power plant

Dear Editor:
I am writing in support of Taylor
County becoming home to a coal-
fired power generating plant. The
positive economic impact would
be huge, both in the 150 permanent
jobs and the 1500-2000
construction jobs.
But the main reason I'm writing
is to share my thoughts regarding
how clean the coal industry has
become. The old image of black
smoke pouring from a smokestack
just isn't accurate today.
There are coal-fired power
ge t ting plants all over the
Sop ast. and you don't hear
anyLng negative about them. If
the emissions from these plants
were so toxic, wouldn't we?
I encourage everyone to do their
own research; don't just listen and
adopt a position. Do your research
on'the Internet or the library. If
convenient, go look in Palatka or

the University of North Carolina fired plants. And the new plant
campus. built here would be cleaner than
You can't tell that these two either of those.

FPA 'thankful' for support

Dear Editor:
Once again the Tri-County
Foster Parent Association would
like to take the time to thank our
community for the continued
support of our organization. With
our donations, we are able to help
not only local foster families, but
other families in need in our area.
Thank you and please call us if you
have anything you would like. to
At this time we would also like
to ask your help for a special cause.
The Tri-County Foster Parent
Association has set up a box at

Winn-Dixie and Kmart for school
supplies. If anyone is able, please
drop a school-related item into one
of our boxes. Last year we had an
incredible turnout and we were
able to provide school supplies to
all of our foster families in the tri-
county area, as well as to relative-
placement and adoptive families.
Due to public generosity, we had
enough supplies left over to hand
out to other families in need,
families not in the foster care
program. As a community we have

Letters to the Editor

Writer 'perplexed' by reactions

Dear-Editor: .
I'm perplexed at our,
community's reaction when new
projects like the coal-fired power
plant or the military test site are
proposed. Let's recap where we've
been 'and where we appear to be
S:Last year, the military wanted to
use some remote land twice a
month for testing' new weapons to
be used by our soldiers. Ir would
have brought 20 jobs to the county
and perhaps saved soldiers' live.
SThere was an outcry to save I~
"Nature Coast" because the bombs
jIwould make large holes in the land
and cause pollution (in an, area
Where limerock miners already
carve 50-foot craters, and disrupt
some hunting recreation). There
was a non-binding referendum.
The majority of our voters said
-iNO--many because they said there
i wasn't enough of an economic
benefitl" for Taylor County. No
Value was placed on saving'
soldiers' lives .or improving'
military capability. Then there's the
effort to make the non-binding vote
into binding public policy.
This year the picture gets even

more weird. '
Out-of-to\wn utilities no\w want
to build a coal-fired power plant
that will' operate 24/7. The
electricityv \won't be sold locally. It
will bring 150 jobs to the county'
but may shorten peoples lives due
to its pollution. It will cast a bro\w n
haze over the "Nature Coast" and.
add pollution to our waters.
Northern coal 'miners and-
railroaders will get more jobs than,
people in Taylor County. It won't
use ,solar or wood (renewable
resources). Tallahasseans get :to
vote on the power plant but Ta lor
Countians don't. And Taylor
Count\ is su posed to "compete"
with other h Florida counties
for select" i he proposed site.
wh hat l11 of this fell the'
world ou of Tahlor Counts
about our unity? Aside from
thinking L ast all be a bunch of
idiots. ou actions suggest the

1. Taylor County lacks a visionn .
forits future. -
2. If 20 jobs won't get your

5.If .the politicians are in doubt
about what the \oiers desirethen
ask for an opinion throiL a
referendum. If politicians "a e
their minds made up, then offer a
public hearing.

Better than .a coal-fired power plant
and can't we improve our political
decision making? THINK about it!

Please see page 4

Let me. tell you how serious this is:
the son's notebook, crammed full of
crumpled papers that are held in place
,by a zipper, is still sitting on the chair
inside the back door.
I point to it as evidence of, "ItCan't Be
Time to Go Back to School."
And it can't be.
How can it be that the notebook has,
been there long enough for the schools
to clean their hallways, fix their
bathrooms and get ready for the next .
crop of students?
How can it be that I haven't had time
to go through those papers in his
notebook, to find, out what library
books .we didn't return -or whose
birthday party we missed?
How can it be?
. believe, with all my heart, that school
i the Civilized World shouldn't begin
until the Tuesday after Labor Day. I
don't know Who In The World decided
that going Back -to School was.
appropriate on Aug. 8. It's riot; it's still
summer. I wouldn't mind if classes
extended until,.Dec. 23, if We could just
re-vamp the. start-up time for
September when the Spider Lilies
bloom. I believe this is mandated
somewhere in the Bible, but for reasons
beyond my understanding,, it didn't
make the Ten Commandments.
I started going Back to School when I,
was barely 6. That means I've been
going back to school for alriost 45
years. For the most part, I.enjoyed the
firt3 30. Now I'm ready to graduate
everybody and retire.
Part of it is that I'm old and crotchety
--a label I rather enjoy. The other part
of my reluctance is that going Back to
School has become rather tiresome and
requires more effort from me than I'm
willing to offer with; a smile,
Going Back to School with a girl child
was, at the beginning of each year
anyway, delightful. She loved school.
She 'loved counting her pencils, and
making lists of what she would wear the
first week. Her backpack always
matched her notebook and her shoes.
She had glittery lunchboxes, purple
composition notebooks, subject
dividers, day, planners and an
overwhelming desire to see her friends
Going Back to School with the boy
child is a lot like a Death March.
"Need new pencils?" I'll ask.
"Nah, I'll just borrow somebody's," he
"Composition notebooks?"
"There's probably some room left in
fast year's," he says, hardly looking up..
So I make a mental note to count his
pencils and buy new composition
"Aren't you excited about seeing your
friends again?" I ask, for it was always
the question my mother posed when
Back to School didn't sound like fun.
"I've seen my friends all summer," he

will tell.you. "I've played baseball and
golf with them, been swimming with
them, stayed at the beach with them.
I'm not ready to go Back to School."
I go back into the kitchen and scream
silently, "I'mmmm nottttt eithhhhher."
But I am reminded, more frequently
than I wish to admit, that I was put on
this earth to raise these children to the
best of my ability (so help me God) so
that they will be caring,- productive
members of society. It takes a village, it
takes a family, it takes a church, it takes
a school district, it takes a recreation
department, it takes a dance studio, it
takes a marching band, piano and art
lessons, countless teachers, a bevy of
coaches and total commitment from the
So I've sat myself down. No, I'm not
really ready to go Back to School. But
going Back to School is better than
going down a few other roads I know
about, and I need to find the courage
(deep down inside) to set that alarm and
wash those athletic shoes.
No more Lazy Days of Summer with
boys in bathing suits all day long. We've
got to have collars on those shirts, belts
on those pants, shoes on those feet. We
need lunch money, field trip release
forms, athletic physical and curfews.
And I've got to hone my special skills
as an investigator.
S"So do you have any language
homework?" (Must make eye contact for
this and appear intimidating.)
"Are there any tests this week?" (Ask
pleasantly, but be prepared' to list all
subjects, asking for an answer after
"Do yo6u have any projects coming
up?" (Like, do, We need poster board
before the store closes at 9 p.m.?)
Before he completely zones out, ask a
more interesting question like:
"Were there'any fights today?" Follow
Closely with, "Did anybody get in
Ask: prayerfully, "You didn't get in
trouble, did you?"
Then change the pace, "What did you
eat for lunch?"
Then to compare answers, "You did
eat lunch, didn't you?"
"You're not' buying anybody else's
lunch, are you?"'
And so my days and nights will go for
the next 10 months (it used to be nine).
Before Monday, Aug. 8, I'm going to pick
up that notebook off the chair, before I
throw it away. I'm going to file the
papers of seventh grade, and prepare
myself for my third stint in eighth
grade, while, e-mailing help and
answering questions for the other child,
a third-year college student.
If the son completes college in the
suggested four years, I will finally be
through with Back to School in the year
SOr dead,
Either's fine.

Who is uninformed?

Dear Editor:
I have ready every letter to the
editor, pro and con. concerning the
electric plant. I think that it is a
great service that you give to the
public to allow them to voice
their opinions and their concerns.
I, for one, would like to thank you
for the pri% ilege. I think that every
person having the right to express
their opinions is one of the great
things about being an American.
However. one of your letter
writers. whose letter was printed
on July 27, seems to suggest that
- if you do not believe as he does.
you are uninformed and are
ignorant about the operation of a
coal-fired plant. I wonder if he is
not the most uninformed of all the
others that have written about the
plant. It is obvious that he does
not know that a couple of years
ago President Bush effectively
destroyed the Clean Air Standards
Act by allowing coal-fired plants
15 more years to come into

Reading between the lines in his
letter. I gel the impression that he
is a good loyal union member
who had a certain amount of
money each pay day deducted from
his wages to pay someone to keep
him well informed about what to
think and say.
A lot ot people retired Irom the
area where they had coal-fired steel
mills and coal-fired electric plants
Sand moved into the wonderful
environment of Taylor County.
After they live here awhile, some
of them would like to make, i
more like where they came from
Rather than going back to whence
the) came.
There was one thing in his letter
that was on target, and that was
his comparison of a 2006 Ford to
the 50s and 60s model cars. A 50s
or 60s model Chevrolet would get
better mileage, put out less
pollution, out perform and would
probably outlast two 2006 Fords.

The Taylor County Bulldog Band is enduring "extreme heat" for practice sessions this week, under the leadership of new
director, Brett Wilson.

TCHS welcomes parents

every Monday evening

TCHS vice principal
Exciting changes and
opportunities in academics and
extracurricular activities await the
students, parents and teachers of
Taylor County High School,
when students return Aug. 8.
Curriculum changes will better
meet the needs of all students.
Students being challenged by the
FCAT will receive scientifically
research-based instruction during a
30-minute literacy period.
Students at risk of failing the
FCAT will also be provided an
additional 30 minutes of intense
reading instruction by two
new reading resource teachers.
Those students who have passed
the FCAT or who have
demonstrated mastery of the
Sunshine State Standards tested on
the FCAT will be provided with
an array of courses during the
literacy period to meet their needs.
Among these courses are
advanced reading courses focusing
on college bound reading lists,
ACT/SAT preparatory classes in
both math and reading, music or
art appreciation, a study hall for
students with intense class loads, a
media production class, a career

exploration class and even some
physical education classes.
With the focus on the FCAT
during the literacy period, our.
academic teachers will be
challenging their students with
intense instruction 'designed to
prepare them for their individual
career or college paths.
The high school is particularly
proud of the You Raise Me UP!
Mentoring Program that was
initiated last school year and that
will continue and expand with the
2005-06 school year. Each faculty
member, including the
administration, along with Oscar
Howard, the Superintendent of
Schools, and Wanda Kemp, the
Director of Instruction, has
pledged to mentor two of our
The mentors strive to build a
positive relationship with their
assigned mentored student, to
increase their feeling of belonging
to the high school community.
The mentors help the mentored
student to set both academic and
personal goals to increase their
chances of success. Throughout
the school year, the mentors
communicate with their assigned
students' teachers so that successes

may be celebrated and potential
crises can be averted through an
action plan developed in
conjunction with the student, the
mentor and the classroom
The Parent Connection is
another program that Taylor
County High School is proud to
provide. The Parent Connection,
open every Monday night from 4
to 7 p.m., is a computer lab where
parents can access Edline to check
their students' grades and
communicate with their teachers.
Parents and studerits alike will
have access to the internet for
research purposes and tutorials to
learn software programs. Students
will also have access to
instructional software to prepare
for the FCAT and college boards.
To ensure that the teachers of
Taylor County High School are
highly qualified, the
administration is providing them
with professional development
opportunities. During the first
semester, our faculty will receive
60 hours of training in how to

C-6 The Taco Times August 3, 2005

Dear Parents,
The first day of school for students in the Taylor County School
District is Monday, August 8, 2005. 1 am excited about the _
prospects for the upcoming year and look forward to meeting ,
and greeting each of you as we kick off this new school term.
You will see many new faces around the schools. We've had a
very busy summer and have hired many excellent new teachers
in our schools. I am confident that you will find all of our schools
ready and willing to make this one of the best years ever for you
and your children.
We face many challenges in 2005-06. The FCAT is, as always, a
moving target that requires much hard work and study by students and staff. I know, though,
that our students and teachers and staff are up to the challenge. I know that by working
together with you, our parents, that we can succeed together. Taylor County's children are our
most precious natural resource. They deserve the best education possible. I will continue my
. commitment to you to make your children's educational experiences positive and rewarding.
As you visit our schools during this new year, you may notice that we've put up extra
fencing, installed extra locks or put up additional walls in hallways. We've done all this to
provide an extra measure of safety for your children. We ask for your patience and
understanding. It is not our intention to inconvenience you, but we put the safety and well-
being of our students first.
I ask one thing of you as the 2005-06 school year progresses. I ask that you work closely
with your child's teacher to ensure that your student is prepared daily for the challenge of
school. Check with your child's teacher, come visit the school. Talk with your child's principal.
Keep the lines of communication open and positive for the sake of your child. Let me know if
I can help in any way. Please remember that my office doors are always open to meetwith
God bless you!
Oscar M. Howard, jr.

Administrators map out new year

TCMS wants another

TCMS vice principal
Taylor County Middle School
(TCMS) is getting ready for the
2005-2006 school year. TCMS
has be&n recognized as an "Honor
Roll" school by -the Florida
Department of Education fot 2003,
2004 and 2005.
Also, TCMS received further
recognition for their "continuous
improvement," shown by their
FCAT test scores, when the Just
Read, Florida, office of the Florida
DOE asked Principal Paul Dyal,
to be part of a presentation at the
"Just Read, Florida" principals'
leadership conference in Orlando
during June.
Taylor County Middle School's
annual report card issued by the
Department of Education, (which
can be found at
www.fldoe.org/NCLB/report card)
shows the following on the
success of the students.
63% of students reading at or
above grade level;
62% of students making a year's
worth of progress in reading; and
62% of struggling students
making a year's worth of progress
in reading.
64% of students at or above
grade level in math.
76% of students making a year's
worth of progress in math.
75% of students are meeting
state standards in writing.
TCMS met 97% of the criteria
of NCLB measurement of
"Adequate Yearly Progress" and
received provisional status for
TCMS received a grade of "B"
in 2005, down from the "A" 'in
2004. It was reported by the'
Department of Education that the
new accountability measures
which when into effect during the
04-05 school year lowered, on.'an
average, middle school's points
Earned on the grading scale by 8
points. I Those accountability
standards were:
.The high standard of
measurement in writing went to a'
sggqe of 3.5 on the Florida \\rites;
and all students were included in
the learning gains score tow ard the
school grade.
As TCMS readies-for the new
school year, the following plans
are in place to help move TCMS

back to the distinction of an "A"
In 2005-2006, TCMS will be
using DIBELS developed by DOE
to help with monitoring our level
1 and level 2 students in reading.
TCMS will be using the Florida
Achieves website from the Office
of School Improvement for
instructional strategies in reading
and math. (Brand new for 2005-
The language arts teachers will
be developing- a school-wide
writing plan for grades 6-8 to
better prepare our students in
Stronger emphasis will be put
on the importance of immediate
intensive intervention in both
reading and math for our
struggling students.
We will incorporate the
philosophy that the DOE is now
promoting that the FCAT reading
test is not only comprehension,
but "thinking skills." Our subject
area instruction will start
reflecting this by using specific
strategies school-wide.
TCMS will continue with
providing the reading endorsement
training for all subject .area
teachers by providing
competencies 4 and 5 in
Differentiating Instruction, and
competency 6, the Practicum. "
Taylor County Middle School
has created and implemented a Just
Read! TCMS reading plan which
is based upon the No Child Left
Behind formula.
Student growth and achievement
are enhanced by the.continuing
implementation of a Scientifically
Based Reading Research (SBRR)
curriculum which is used during a
60-minute reading class provided
,for all students. To insure that all
individual student needs are,
addressed, TCMS uses three types
of assessment--screening,
diagnostic, and progress
monitoring. ,
Reading is taught by every
content area teacher. In order to
increase the instructional capacity
for high quality reading
instruction, 7th and 8th grade
teachers are in the process of
completing training in the six
reading competencies in order to
become reading endorsed.
Through these endorsement
courses, teachers will be
empowered with the necessary

Edline: codes will be sent home

ways. Edline, an internet-based
Computer program, allows parents
to interface with teachers by

internet location.
Teachers post grades, attendance,
pacing'guides and curriculum
maps for their subject area on the
school website where parents can
access them. There is also a direct
e-mail link with the individual
As well as the teacher links, the

school website posts links to
other sites for carter guidance
activities, scholarship

sponsored reading and math'
remediation site that'students cani

skills to teach reading effectively
and help all students achieve
reading success at or above grade
level by 2012.
At TCMS each subject area
department utilizes a Curriculum
Map which outlines by month the
content and skills which are taught
for the entire year. From this
document each teacher creates a
'Pacing Guide for each nine weeks
to inform the student as well as
the parents, of'skills which will
be taught and how those skills
will be assessed. Each of these
documents is sent home and
available on the Internet program

grant for $300,000 by the Florida
Department of Education. The

C-7 The Taco Times August3, 2005


vision and goals of this project are
to prepare students to succeed in
the 21st Century.
This will be accomplished by
using technology to improve
students' achievement. This grant
will be used to provide intensive,
targeted and sustained technology
integration training for. teachers,
improved technology infrastructure
and equipment at the school, and
the establishment of a Technology
Integration Specialist/Mentor to
work with teachers at the site.
Each nine-weeks, TCMS hosts
a Parent Conference Night to
provide parents an opportunity to
take part in conferences with their
child's teacher without missing
work hours. All teachers and
supporting staff are available to
meet with parents and students for
two hours on a Monday evening
during the nine weeks.
