Man,, 22, killed in
Cross City crash
A Perry man was killed Saturday. in a one-vehicle automobile crash in
Dixie County, according to reports filed with the Florida Highway Patrol.
Jeffrey Lee Davis Jr., 22, was the passenger in a 2000 Dodge van driven
by David Carrillo, 27, from Immokalee, when the vehicle entered a curve
on U.S. Hwy 19, approximately 11 miles north of Cross City.
According to FHP Trooper E. Johnson, the van "failed to negotiatethe
curve and left the roadway on the west shoulder, traveling several hundred
feet on the grassy shoulder before coming back onto the roadway.
"The driver over-corrected the vehicle as it came back onto the roadway,
which caused it to begin.a clockwise rotation," he.added. "The van then left
the highway again, colliding with a pine tree in the driver's door area. The
vehicle sustained heavy crush damage into the passenger compartment.
"Both the driver 'and front seat passenger were pronounced dead at the
-scene by Dixie County Emergency Medical Services." Johnson said. "The
preliminary investigation revealed that speed was a factor in the crash."
Complete obituary information for Davis may befound on page A-5.

City Council eyes 'in
The Perry City Council is eyeing a possible "in house" consolidation of
its recreation and public works departments.
Mayor Emily Ketring first brought the idea to the table during the
council's Aug. 9 meeting and members \were expected to continue
discussions on the tbpic Tuesday night.
Initial reactions to the move were mixed, with council members in falor
and department heads raising concerns.
"We keep hearing how we are short in both departments so w hy not look
at combining them and better utilize our resources." KeLring said.
"If we did that, we'd have more staff and could stagger shifts as needed,"
Councilman Don Cook said.
"And you could keep our equipment running longer with the same
people," Ketring noted.
"If you do that, then (Recreation Director Glenn Ratlitf) is gaining and
I'm losing because you'll have my people doing Glenn's work." Public
Works Director Barney Johnson said.
"I think as a council what we are saying is we would like ICitl Manager
Bill Brynes) to look at what we're asking and bring us back a
recommendation," Cook said.
That recommendation was to be discussed at the council's regular
meeting Aug. 23.
At last Tuesday's meeting, the
commission was presented with a
list of 10 streets in Steinhatchee
and the cost for each survey.
The boat ramp committee had
given the commissioners the list of
sites at its previous meeting, but
had not included a price estimate
"The objective of the surveys is
to find a location with the least
impact on the community which
allows the most parking," a
committee member said at that
County Administrator Buddy
Humphries subsequently contacted
Delta Land Surveyors. Inc., which
pro ided the cost estimates.
The streets on the list were:
Founh Street West. $950; Third
Street West, $950: Second Street
West. $400: Main Street, $950;
Second Street East, $1.150;
Thirteenth Street East, $600:
Fourteenth Street East, $950; First
Avenue South, $600; Central
Avenue, $600; and First Avenue
The cost, of ihe ten surveys
Commissioner Clay Bethea,
whose district includes
Steinhatchee, objected to'several of
the streets on the'list.
S"Some of these are not feasible,"
He then made a motion to fund
the surveys, excluding Main Street,
Thirteenth Street East, Fourteenth
Street East and Central Avenue.
Commissioner Malcolm Page.
seconded the motion and
Commissioner Jack Brown called
Brown said that Attorney Mike
Smith had contacted him, stating
that in his research of past board
minutes he had found that several
roads in the Steinhatchee Area had
been closed and abandoned by the
county in years past, particularly
several in 1939, which were still on.

"I don't want to pay for surveys if
I don't know if I own .the land,"
Ways to conduct the research
necessary to determine which
roads, if any, had been abandoned
by the county were discussed,
including using the services of the
newly hired planning board
attorney,'John N. Weed.
The commission decided to hire
a firm to conduct title searches on

Coastal group takes shape
STaylor County's new coastal
management committee came a
step closer to fruition last week
when commissioners agreed, on
several details about the
Commissioner Clay Bethea,
who first proposed the committee
at the board's June 20 meeting,
suggested it have seven members.
Each commissioner would
designate one member and two
more would be chosen by the
board as a whole from an at-large
pool of candidates.
Several members of the public
spoke out about the committee,
most expressing concerns that the
committee would not include
enough people from the coastline.
Commissioners responded that
they would like to see the board
consisting of people representing
'I think the coastline is a big
enough issue to have someone out
there looking just at that. '-Bethea
the various coastal communities
in the county, including
Steinhatchee, Keaton Beach,
Econfina and Spring Warrior.
The committee would have no
pqier to make rules or regulations
itself and would instead advise the
board on issues pertaining to the
coast, commissioners said when:
questioned. It would also 'have to
function under Florida Sunshine
The commission agreed to
Bethea's design and said they
would bring the names of their
designees to the board's next
meeting, Tuesday, Sept. 6.
The coastal committee was
created after Commissioner Clay:
Bethea told the board of a 1969
Legislative Act giving Taylor
County the right to create a port
authority to manage its coastline.
The wording as well as the age
of the act raised questions, and the
commission decided to instead
create the coastal committee.
"There's a plethora of issues
down there," Bethea said at the
June 20 meeting. "I think the
coastline is a big enough issue to
have someone out there looking
just at that."

QUESTION: What does
behavioral research tell us
about the best way to raise
.children?, Have scientific
studies spelled out. what
works and what doesn't,
especially regarding how to
DR. DOBSON: My answer
may sound like heresy coming
from a man who spert 10 years of
his life as a professor of pediatrics,
responsible for medical and
behavioral research, but I don't
believe the scientific community
is capable.of determining the best
parenting techniques. There have
been some worthwhile studies, to
be sure, but the subject of
discipline almost defies definitive
Why? Because the only way to
study this topic scientifically
would be to'place newborns
randomly in "permissive" vs.
"disciplined" families, and then,
keep them under close observation
for 10 or 15 years. Since it is
impossible. to do that, researchers
have tried to tease out information
where they could find it. But
family relationships are so
*multidimensional and complicated
that they almost defy rigorous
scrutiny..Indeed, most of the
studies reported in the literature are
For example, Dr. David Larson,
4:'a psychiatrist and formerly a
researcher at the National
Institutes of Health, reviewed 132
articles in professional journals
that purported to investigate the
long-term consequences of
'corporal punishment. He found
most of them flawed in design.
Ninety percent of the studies failed
to distinguish between good
homes where spanking was
:administered by' loving parents,
and those bordering on (or actually
' inflicting) child abuse. This
distinction is critical for obvious
reasons. Dr. Larson concluded that
the findings were.invalidated by
this failure to consider the overall
health of family relationships.
To repeat, the consequences of
various approaches to parental
discipline appear to be beyond the
reach of social research. It is
simply not possible to study this
complex subject scientifically
without warping families to set up
the research design. Even if such
studies were conducted, the
researchers would be studying
contrived families, not typical

'Dogs 'impressive' in pre-season games
By AARON PORTWOOD
The new-look Taylor County
B.Iulldogs opened the 2005
campaign with a pre-season
"Kickoff Classic" jamboree in
Mayo that could be best described
as the "tale of two halves."
The Bulldogs sat out the first
half of the three-team jamboree
and watched as Hamilton County
defeated. Lafayette County, 12-6.
Taylor then suited up against
Hamilton County and dominated
the Trojans, 15-0. However, the
Bulldogs seemed to fade in the
intense August heat, falling in
their second half of play against
the Lafayette, County Hornets,
who used a powerful rushing
attack to pound Taylor County,
All three teams finished tied
with identical 1-1 records. (One
interesting note: both teams that
played back-to-back halves, lost
the second half to the more rested,
In all, it was an impressive pre-
season outing for the Bulldogs and
first-year Head Coach Price Harris,
who came into the Kickoff Classic
.without the benefit of spring
conditioning drills or a. spring
'Taylor was also playing without
three senior starters, who each
~missed a workout session and
therefore did' not travel with the
team. True to his word before the
game, Coach Harris saw that all
30 players' received significant
playing time and alternated first
and second team units on each
,possession, regardless of the-score
QB Genario McNealy (6-1, 192-
pound senior) looked especially
sharp in' his 2005 debut,
completing 5 of his 7 passes for
79 yards and a touchdown with no
interceptions in addition to
r iaing four times"J'6r 79 yards
;and another iouchdow\in.
SMcNealy looked comfortable
-running the Bulldogs' new
:"Flexbone"' triple option offensive
attack arid put added.pressure on
Ithe defense by rolling out and
hitting receivers on the run.
Senior wingback Tony Powell
(5-11, 175 Ibs.) alsb emerged as
an offensive threat, contributing
remarkable plays in both halves.
including a 33-pard kickoff return
and a 55-yard touchdown run
against Hamilton, as well as a 34-
yard TDcatch against Mayo.
SThe Bulldogs' rushing attack,.
which exploded for 165 yards and
2 TD's in the win over Hamilton--
before faltering for just 32 yards
on 12 carries in the loss to
Lafayette-saw 10 different
players carry the ball.
McNealy led the way with 4
carries for 79 yards and 1 TD,,
followed by Powell (3 carries for
62 yards and a TD), junior
fullback Delvan Whetsel (5
carries, 20 'yards), freshman
wingback Bryckoski Jackson (1
carry for 20 yards), who had a 60-
yard touchdo% n run called back on
a holding penalty in the first half
Sophomore Greg Snead finished
with 4 carries for 13 yards,
followed by senior fullback
Marvin Britt (2 carries, 7 yards),
senior fullback Shawn Padgett (2
'carries, 2 yards), junior fullback
Gerald Walker (2 carries, 0 yards),
Carl Padgett (1 carry) and back-up
QB Marquis Ellis, who struggled
with the snap exchange and lost
six yards on four carries, including
two fumble recoveries.
In adglition to Powell's four
catches for 70 yards (including a
two-point conversion pass from
; Shawn Padgett), Jamar. McIntyre
hauled in a nine-yard'catch and
Sebastian Ingram had a beautiful
.,0-yard interception return for a
touchdown against Lafayette in
which he baited the QB to throw
the ball andr broke in front of the

Marvin Britt (6-1, 233 lb. senior),
Shawn Padgett (5-10, 176 lb.
senior) and the defensive line
delivered some stinging hits and
wrapped up well in the shutout of
The Trojans managed to cross
midfield only once on offense and
that was when the Bulldogs gave
Hamilton the ball at the Taylor
37-yard line due to a bad snap over
punter John Crowley's head.
Taylor had more trouble with
the deep snapping later in the
game against Mayo, when 'another
high snapped sailed over Crowley
and out of the endzone for a safety
that helped Lafayette-who had just
scored to pull ahead, 7-6--quickly
take a16-6 lead.
Taylor took control of Hamilton
early, with Powell's 33-yard
kickoff return and Jackson's 60-
yard TD run that was called back.
Powell caught a 24-yard pass and
took an option pitch 55 yards for a
touchdown twoplays later to give
Taylor a 6-0 lead. Powell'also
caught the two-point pass to make
it 8-0. -
The Taylor defense forced,
Hamilton to punt and the Bulldogs
had trouble moving the ball before
a bad snap gave the Trojans good
field position at the Taylor 42-.ard
line. The Dogs' defense came up
big, forcing a fumble that Taylor
recovered on first down, but an
"inadvertent whistle" ruled the
play dead and negated the turnover.
The Bulldog defense responded
as Meacham made two big tackles
for a loss and Hamilton turned the
ball over on a 4th and 19 play
from the Bulldogs'-32.
On the very next, play McNealy
faked a hand-off and looked off a
defender before tucking the ball for
a 68-yard TD run.
Crowley's kick gave Taylor a
15-0 lead and Meacham recovered a
fumble on the Trojans' second
play. Taylor gaVe Crowley two
long field goal attempts (34 and
60 yards) late in the half, but both
were low or short, as the Bulldogs
struggled ith their special teams
,snaps and holds.
The Bulldogs looked to pick up
where they left off in the second
half with Lafayette-reco ering a
fumble afterNMayo had picked up a
first down on their first
possession. Two big runs by
Whetsel set up a nine-yard pass
and a 34-yard TD pass from
McNealy to Powell.
The two-point play failed to
give Taylor a 6-0 lead. The rested
Mayo offense took over from
there, ripping off long runs of 53
and 21 yards before scoring on a
one-yard plunge to pull ahead 7-6.
The bad punt snap gave Mayo a
safety, a 9-6 lead and the ball,
which the Hornets quickly
marched to the endzone in six
plays with a bruising ground
attack. Trailing 16-6, the Bulldogs
could move the ball and had to
punt, but'Ingram gave Taylor a
boost by scoring on defense with
the highlight-reel interception
return for a touchdown with 1:16
to play in the third quarter to pull
the Bulldogs within 16-12.

three days, a week, under the
supervision of Dr. Khodr.
In addition, residents from" the
University of Florida's Internal
Medicine Program will rotate

hospital throughout 2005 and
Dr. Khodr joined the faculty at
the University of Florida in June
2004. He was also among the first
clinical professors chosen at
Florida State University.
"Getting exposure to rural
medicine is an excellent learning
experience for young physicians,"
Khodr said. "Medicine is more
difficult to practice in a rural
setting as opposed to a large
metropolitan area because there are
few, if any, sub-specialists read ly
available to assist you in
diagnosing and treating your

need to know more, study more
and expose themselves to more
than just their primary specialty.
Perry offers an excellent location
to enhance the learning experience
of these young physicians. Maybe
I can even convince one of them
"I applaud Dr. Khodr's actions;
it will be great having these
young physicians rotating through
the hospital," DMH CEO Rick
"I believe, as Dr. Khodr does,
that it will enhance their residency
experience by being exposed to
how medicine is practiced in the
real world of rural medicine. It is
also an excellent opportunity for
us to show off our new hospital,
show off Perry as a great location
to practice medicine and the
exciting future of Taylor County's ,
growth potential. It's a win-win
situation...especially if we can
convince some of the residents to
stay and start their own medical
practice here. Dr. Khodr should be
congratulated for initiating this

teens and explain to them that the
road they're taking isn't worth it,
because I don't want anyone to
make the same mistakes I have and
end up coming to prison :and
experience the same things I have.r
I've been behind prison bars for
two and a half years; I'm about five

family, friends and loved ones; and
still won't be able to see'any of'
them for another three and a half
years. I've been through a lot since
I've been here. This prison that I'm
currently in is classified to be the.
second worst prison in Florida and

'Unwelcome' at power plant meeting?
B-3 The Taco Times August 24, 2005
BI noneyar5,00 sose
The "meeting to address power
plant issue" was a farce.
If the group in attendance was
any indication of the individuals
against the power plant, they have
nothing better to do.
Approximately 15 ladies from here
in Perry were present. The
gentleman from Panama City
needs to stay there and help clean
up his own area. One gentleman
said he had never been below
Orlando, and the others from
Tallahassee, who knows?
The two of us for the plant were

The Steinhatchee Community
Projects Board, Inc., wishes to
express condolences to the family,
of Rosa Lea Quiette. Mrs.
Quiette had many years of service
on this board, as well as with the
Steinhatchee Chapter of AARP
and the Steinhatchee Garden Club.
These years reflect her
commitment to her community
and.its activities. Her spirit and
dedication will be missed.

special thanks to all of the
merchants and businesses that
donated gift. cards and food to the

Also, we would like to. hank all

quickly made to feel unwelcome.
I spoke to one lady about asbestos
and its dangers. She obviously
didn't know and didn't care. When
I spoke about 'the turbine
windmills and ecology, the answer
was, "So what?"
These people worry about the
food we eat, the water we drink,
etc. You consume the sugar from
the fields which have caused the
destruction of the Florida
Everglades by mercury. What are
The fields in Southern Florida
produce most of the produce we
eat, not to mention Mexico and
Central America. What are you
Our coal-powered electric plants
of today are safe--far more safe
than the food we eat and the
destruction of the ecology around
My daughter once said,
"Everything we eat, drink or
breathe has a potential for our
health, yet life goes on."
The little-to-no emission from a
coal-powered plant will not hurt
us, much less the emission from
nuclear plants here in Florida.
I'm 72 years old and have lived a
healthy life for which I thank God.
I enjoy life and don't sit dormant.
Thank God for what He has given
you. It's because of God's will for
progress that we are a free county.
I have traveled across this great
county, and wherever you go,
there are problems. But we're still
Ladies and gentlemen, wake up
and live. You might actually see
the beautiful side of life.
Wanted: clean industry
Two score and eleven years ago,
the good people of Taylor County
allowed the Fenholloway River
and all the underground waters near
it, to be polluted for all time.
This to bring industry to Taylor
County! Okay, I agree that the
county needed jobs. The big
lumber mills had cut out all the
timber, both here and in the
Everglades! They were through,
with us and we were fed to the
wolves...hence the expression "cut
Procter and Gamble built
Buckeye Cellulose and stunk up,
the county, ruined the land and
\water, but they provided good-
paying jobs! Give them credit for
paying good wages, some young
Smen went to work there and retired
30 years later, wealthy or at least
very .comfortable. This is
wonderful, but look at the cost to
Last.year, some men came here
and tried to convince the people
that having a bomb/missile range
located here would be great. I am
!: .s thankful-th the aood people
of Taylor County saw through
this deceitful scheme, and sent
these men back to Fort Walton.
Now, we are once again set
upon to allow another polluter to
come amongst us. What a terrible
precedent we set when we allowed
the Fenholloway to be polluted
50-plus.years ago! They think we
still do not care about our land and
Now is the time for all good
men and women to stand pp and
tell the polluters to go elsewhere.
We need good clean industry. We
so not need more pollution! Take
your coal-fired electric plant to
Tallahassee or Jacksonville where
they want the electricity and will
get the use:of it. None of the
electricity it produces will come to
Taylor County; it will not lower
our electric bills and will only
provide a very few local jobs. Our
clean air, water and environment
are much more important.
