as other operational changes within the mill.
.Forty-four speakers went to the-podium at Taylor County Middle School
in the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP)-sponsored
event. Of those, 39 spoke in favor of DEP's plan.
DEP officials have stated that the permit will provide long-term:
environmental improvements in the Fenholloway River and estuary by";: :

an industrial wastewater treatment plant, and construction of an effluent

DEP's timeline sets this Thursday as the end of the public comment'
period with Feb. 6, 2006, scheduled for final department action.
After that, the permit sets several deadlines for upgrades within the plant

Cash flow raises eyebrows
over Alford's expenditures
By TOM McLAUGHLIN
SNorthwest Florida Daily News
(Special to the Taco Times)
Stephen Alford's attorney
conceded at the trial's outset that
prosecutors could show his client
went through cash like a man about
to become wealthy.
Alford's spending habits, in
2004--the year he was enticing
investors to give him money with
the promise of'Air Force land on
Okaloosa Island--dominated the
federal money laundering and wire
fraud trial Friday.
FBI special agent Steven Harker
.provided an itemized account of
Alford's expenditures following
May 6, 2004, the' day primary
investor Richard Massey sent his
. first check.
The list purports to show that
Alford spent just under $3,6
million of Massey's ,$7 million
investment' on things like a
Mercedes Benz for his wife, home
furnishings and trips to Las Vegas,
Disney World and Tallahassee.
Alford also paid healthy annual
salaries to a housekeeper, a home
schooler, a sports coach, a chef and
two full-time personal trainers.
"Mr. Alford wanted to lose
weight and get in shape," Dirk
Wenrich, one of Alford's $60,000-
a-year personal trainers, testified
before Harker took the stand.
SDavid Fleet, then Alford's
lawyer and now his co-defendant,,
received $295,000 in payments
Listed among financial records as
legal fees, Harker said.
Alford, with Fleet as his legal
representative, convinced Massey
on four occasions to.wire money to
Alford's checking account,
prosecutors say. Massey thought
his investment was buying him the
exclusive right to purchase a parcel
of Air Force land on Okaloosa
Island known as A-5.
The list purports to show that
SAlford spent just under $3.6
million of Massey's $7 million
'investmenton thingslike a
Mercedes Benz for his wife,
home furnishings and trips to
Las Vegas, Disney World and
Massey had testified earlier in
the week that each time he sent
1 more money to Alford's account,
he was promised.,a better purchase
deal for the land.
c Alford and Fleet had convinced
him, Massey said, that they wold
receive the Air Force land in a
swap, for acreage Alford was
S buying in Taylor County. The Air
Force wanted the Taylor County
land to use as a long-range missile
The U.S. Attorney's Office is
trying to convince a 16-member
jury that Alford and Fleet stepped
over the legal line with their land-
Sswap deal by promising the
exclusive purchase option to more
than just Massey. A development
group headed by Tom Becnel also
bought into the A-5 property,
Becnel's group also put money
down to obtain another parcel of
land the Air Force was apparently
willing to trade to Alford, evidence
showed. That parcel, the Dunes
Parcel, extends from Beasley Park,
eastward, and would give its
owners 7,350 feet of beachfront
property to develop.
Defense attorneys argue that
Massey loaned money to Alford, as
opposed to investing it in hopes of
Staking a claim to the A-5 property.
He knew the risks associated with
land speculation, the defense
'In the same opening argument ih
which he warned the jury about the
extravagant spending, defense
attorney Joe Hammonds said
Alford had every reason to believe
his land deal was going to work.

SA man police say car-jacked a
couple. at gunpoint last week--
pistol-whipping one of the
victims--has been captured wand
charged with.armed, car-jacking,
grand theft and larceny/theft.'
According to a report filed by
Perry Police Department Ptli
Dwight Norris, a call was made to
Taylor County, Sheriffs .Office
dispatch, reporting that store
security had attempted to stop a
suspected shoplifter outside Wal-
Mart, but that he fled on fogt, back
toward the post office. Security
Officer David Lindsey said "they
lost him behind Cato's."
Shortly thereafter, Norris was
dispatched to Doctors' Memorial
Hospital to speak to two possible
victims of a car-jacking.
The 63-year-old man, who has a
history of heart problems, was in
the emergency room complaining
of chest pains.
He told Norris that he was sitting
in his vehicle in the post office
parking lot waiting on his 61-year-
old wife, when he saw a black male
running toward his vehicle.
"The subject jumped in the front
passenger side and told the victim
to crank up the car," Norris said.
"He then told the man to get out or
that he would 'mess him up.'
"The victim said the car-jacker
was holding a small black handgun
and that it was cocked. He then
told the victim to get out of the car
or he would shoot him," Norris
"The victim's wife came out of
the post office and saw the man in
the car fighting with her husband,
so she opened the driver's door to,
see what was wrong. She said the,
subject had: a gun and was
Threatening her husband.
"The victim was having trouble
getting the seatbelt unlocked, so
the subject began hitting the man
with the pistol," N6rris added.
When the victim was able to get
out of the vehicle, the car-jacker
jumped behind the wheel, cranked
up the car and took off north on
The victim's wife told police that
her purse was in the vehicle with
cash and other personal items in it.
Five. hours later the stolen
vehicle was located on .Malloy
Two days later, PPD Ptl. Robert
Johns made contact with. the
possible girlfriend of the suspect,
who said his name was Kerry E.
Cummings, 35, and that he had
gone back to Orlando.
The owner of the bicycle
Cummings was originally on was
located and he also identified the
suspect as Cummings.
Norris said a tip was given to
police Friday that Cummings was
at a residence in the Spring Warrior
area, but officers unable to locate
On Saturday, Norris received
information that Cummings was
back at the Spring Warrior
residence and "that he was asleep
in an abandoned camper trailer
behind the home."
Norris, TCSO Sgt. Paul Poppell,
Dep. Chris Folsom and Dep. Mike
Thompson went to the residence
and arrested Cummings. During
the arrest, a crack pipe was
discovered underneath the man,
according to Norris.

Cowboys score on final play of 63-20 blowout
Madison runs up score
in victory over Bulldogs
By Aaron Portwood
Despite a valiant second-half
performance by the Taylor County
offense and QB Genario McNealy,
the Bulldogs dropped their District
2-2A opener by a score of 63-20
to undefeated #2-ranked Madison
County, Friday night in Boot Hill
Taylor (2-3 overall) scored on a
pair of long touchdown passes
sandwiched around a successful
onside kick during a 40-second
span midway through the third
quarter to cut Madison's lead to
35-13, but could not stop a
Cowboys offense that scored on
nine of their 12 possessions in the
The Cowboy coaching staff,
under the direction of Head Coach
Frankie Carroll, did not appear
content with simply winning the
game, instead choosing to score as
many points as possible against
the overmatched Bulldogs.
In fact, two of the only three
possessions Madison did not score
came when the Cowboys were
.forced to punt for the only time in
the game late in the second
quarter. Taylorfumbled the punt
return and Madison recovered at
the Bulldogs' 48-yard line.
Although the Cowboys led 28-0
with under a minute remaining in
the first half, Madison's'coaches
used two timeouts and called for a
38-yard pass play in an attempt to
pad their four-touchdown lead
before time ran out. The drive
.ended with the Cowboys hurrying
to the line of scrimmage and
'trying to get one more play off
rafter being stuffed on a first and
goal play from inside the five-yard
To add insult to injury--with the'
clock 'running continuously
throughoutt the final quarter--
.Madison inserted offensive
lineman Gary Stephens at running
back to score on a one-yard plunge
|to take a 55-13 lead.
Madison's defense recorded a
safety to take a 44-point lead, but
the Cowboys fumbled on the very
next play and McNealy scooped
4he ball up, outran several
IMadison players and cored on a
62-yard fumble return to pull the,

Madison was not content to run
out the clock or take a knee in a
!show of sportsmanship, instead

.hurried to ,score their ninth
'touchdown just before time
Taylor's highlights were limited
to the passing game, as McNealy
completed just two of 11 passes in

Alford's defense expected to begin Thursday
Continued from page 1
of Alford and Fleet brought the

defense attorneys said: Taylor
County politics and interference
from the Becnel development
Federal prosecutors argued
Monday that Fleet lied to
investigators when questioned
about a land swap proposal
involving Okaloosa Island
FBI agent Steven Harker
testified in U.S. District' Court
that' documents seized through
search warrants contradicted Fleet's
denial that he knew of deals
negotiated in 2004 that gave two
prospective buyers the option to
purchase the same piece of
valuable beachfront property.
Harker's testimony concerning
the nine hours he'd spent between
January .and September
questioning Fleet went all

examination was possible.
However, his statements did
provide insight into several
avenues of defense for Fleet. a
one-time prosecutor and judicial
Testimony showed Fleet had
acted during 2004 as a liaison
between partner and co-defendant
Alford and Richard Massey, a
primary investor in the scheme
Alford had hatched to swap up to
160,000 acres of land in Taylor
County for waterfront property
managed by Eglin Air Force Base.
Fleet sat down with Harker for
the first time in January after the
land -swap had blown up and
Massey had sought a federal
investigation into the transaction.
-, That investigation led to
inddictments being handed down
charging Fleet and Alford with
numerous counts of wire fraud and
-money laundering. Federal
authjoriities allege they spent
.money provided by would-be
:investors in the land-swap deal.
-Onnly Fleet is charged with lying
to-a federal agent.
Fleet, according to testimony
from Harker and others, went to
Massey when Alford needed more
money and was familiar with an
option Massey held to buy an
Okaloosa Island tract known as A-
5 immediately east of the old
Radisson Beach Resort.
Harker testified that Fleet denied
several times knowing the A-5 lot
had been promised not only to
Massey, but also to a development
group headed by Tom Becnel.
"On several occasions Mr. Fleet
said. A-5 was always Mr.
Massey's," Harker said. "That was
a recurring theme, that site A-5
was always Massey's."
But a contract found in Alford's
possession signed Aug. 17, 2004,
by Fleet, Alford and a Becnel
representative, out the sales option
that the Becnel group had received
for the A-5 tract, Harker said.
The defense will likely argue,
according to Harker's recollection
of his meetings with Fleet, that
the Becnel contract signed in
August 2004 had been breached by
the time any deal to sell a portion
to Massey was negotiated.
Before Harker took the stand,
the chair was filled, really filled,.
by Jeff Saturday, the starting
center for the Indianapolis Colts
Saturday--6 feet 2 inches and
295 pounds--testified that he
negotiated with Alford about
buying the A-5 property. Saturday
said he dropped out after National
Football League, investigators
checked Alford's background.
Rules of evidence would not
allow Saturday to say what in
Alford's past led him and his
partners to step away.
Harker's testimony concerning
his interview with Fleet also
provided more details about the
Air Force's role in negotiating to
trade all of its holdings on
Okaloosa Island as well as a
couple more waterfront parcels in

him that the Air Force, not
Alford, had initiated discussions
about the land swap. Harker said
Fleet told him that three Eglin
committee chairman Bob Arnold,
legal representative Don Fitch and
Bob Black, of the Economic
Development Council of Okaloosa
County--had met with Alford as
early as Dec. 28, 2003. Fleet
declined to say, Harker said,
whether that was the meeting to
discuss the land swap for the
Taylor County land.
Dealing with the Air Force grew
frustrating for' him and Alford,
Harker said Fleet told him.
"The problem with making a
deal with the Air Force was that
they never put anything in
writing," Harker said Fleet told
him. "We needed that to show
investors our deal was viable."
The government's case was
scheduled to conclude Tuesday.
The defense is expected to begin
its case Thursday. It's unclear
whether either Alford or Fleet will
testify: Their attorneys have said
that the two conducted business
legitimately, and that the investors
knew what they were getting into.

For Hurricane Katrina victims
Catholic youth raise $975
The youth of Immaculate Conceptiorr Catholic
Church held a spaghetti dinner on .Sept. 17 in an
effort to provide relief money for the devastation
caused by Hurricane Katrina.
"The group had high hopes of raising possibly as
much as $500 toward this endeavor," explained
Jeanette Edwards, youth director. "Spaghetti and
meatballs, salad and desserts were served at a steady:
pace all through the evening. At the end of the night,
after clean-up and most had gone home, the money
20-year reunion olans underway
was sorted and counted. To their amazement, they far
exceeded their goals and a total of $975 was raised!
"While this was very exciting, since we are such a

.shocking because we have repeatedly observed this
kind of generosity and love in our small parish family
and in this community," she added.

county commissioners are truly
responsible to their constituents,
then why does it appear they are
afraid to let the citizens of Taylor.
County have a vote on the coal-
fired power plant? Why does the
coal fired plant appear to be a
volatile e issue with the
commission, with a decision
almost made costing an agency
their renewal agreement? It
almost appears that our county
commissioners are afraid to hear
the opinions of the people of this
One man's letter to the editor is
not going to sway public opinion.
Each of us has our own opinion,
and it may not be the same one as'
our -county commissioners, but
this is still a free country and as
citizens, we have a right to our
opinion. As our commissioners,
our representatives, if you are sure
you are doing the will of the
people by bringing the coal fired
power plant to Taylor County,
then a referendum vote will prove
you are correct. This should not
be an issue for retaliation against
citizens voicing their right to be
heard. County commissioners, I
urge you, listen to the people who
put you in that place of trust, you
are at a level of responsibility and
that responsibility is to the
citizens, of Taylor County. Let's
settle this issue once and for all,
and show a level of maturity due
to the position of trust where you
have been placed. Give the
citizens the right to vote "Yes" or
"No" in a referendum. If you are
correct in thinking the citizens of
Taylor County want a coal fired
plant, then a vote will prove you
correct. From reading this article,
it gives an appearance that you are
afraid the citizens, will vote "no"
in a referendum.

participated last Thursday night in the town hall meeting sponsored
by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
Some 200 plant neighbors and employees told the FDEP: complete
work on the draft wastewater permit so Buckeye can move forward
and continue to improve the Fenholloway River and Gulf waters
near the river.
This direct, positive message from citizens to the FDEP -- and to
Buckeye was stated numerous ways. All of them were clear and
During the meeting, several positive comments were made by
members of the public about Buckeye and Buckeye employees. While
it is hard to say if heartfelt testimonials impact the decisions of
government agencies, we can tell you the kind words that were said
deeply impacted those ofus who work for the company.
Thank you for your support.
