Erdman West takes a turn with the shovel as a new tree is
planted during an Arbor Day ceremony held last Friday.
Perry Tree Board member Henry Davis gave a short history
of Arbor Day and Perry's involvement with the holiday as
board members were joined by representatives of the
Heritage Park Committee and the Division of Forestry, as
well as Mayor Emily 4,etring and City Manager Bob Brown
for the tree planting.
In the spirit of Arbor Day, a tree
was planted at Heritage Park
during a ceremony held last
Friday, Jan. 20.
Those present included Mayor
Emily Ketring and City Manager
Bob Brown, as well as members
of the Perry Tree Board and
Heritage Park Committee.
Perry has been designated a Tree
City, USA, since 1992, when it
appointed the advisory Tree Board.
The board works to protect the
city's trees and plants as well as to
beautify the city, according to
member Henry Davis, who spoke
before the tree planting.
Current Tree Board members are
Davis, Erdman West, Fanette
Chesser, Frankye Sermons and
Mae Jean Holton.
"Arbor Day, whose purpose is
to encourage the planting and
caring of trees, was originated in
Nebraska in 1872 by a journalist,
J. Sterling Morton, who moved
from Detroit to Nebraska," Davis
told those in attendance Friday.
"Nebraska at that time was
almost a treeless plain. As editor
of Nebraska's first newspaper, Mr.
Morton promoted the planting and
care of trees and on Jan. 14, 1872,
proposed a tree planting holiday to
be called Arbor Day."
Arbor Day is celebrated in all 50
states and in many countries
worldwide. National Arbor Day is
held the last Friday in April, but
due to the varying growing
seasons, the date varies from state

By drug task force
Felony charges levied
Three more alleged drug dealers
were arrested recently after the
Taylor County Joint Drug Task
Force (DTF)', used confidential
informants to purchase cocaine and
videotaped the transactions.
According to Perry Police
Department Det. Mike Anderson,
one suspect, Wayne Flowers, 39,
sold an eighth of an ounce of
powder cocaine to their informant.
Flowers was seen by officers
driving a small green sports car
during the sale.

are not the brand name you're used
to seeing, have been through a lot
of quality control to make sure
they meet Save-a-Lot standards."
The one difference in the new
grocery store, is that after
checking out with a cashier,
customers must bag their own
groceries. Bags will be provided
for three-cents each, or larger ones
for one dime.
"Of course, any boxes we have
in the store, not in use, will be
available for our customers," Mark
You may also bring your own
bags or boxes.
"This is just one more way in
which we are able to save our
customers money. We don't have a
huge staff or the overhead that'
some stores have. Our cost is
down and we pass it to the
consumer," he said.
The store is slightly smaller
now, with the Boris brothers
reducing the size to compare to the
other 1,200 Save-a-Lot stores in
the U.S., including their other
Save-a-Lot Grocery Store in Lake
"We're excited about opening
this store in Perry," said Mark. "I
think the new format of the store
will serve this community well
and it will be good for everyone."
The Perry Elks Lodge recently joined the Perry Police Department's fundraising drive to
purchase a bronze eagle and podium for the new Veterans Memorial Park, with a "Bingo night."
Shown above are Elks Veterans Chairman Curly Morgan, Jennifer and Jenna Davis, -Lavonne

from Veteran's Memorial Park, Ed Sheffield. Blanton said more fundraisers have been planned
for the future and "thanks the community for their support."
Deadline extension sought
Continued from page 1
to keep the same quality, but
lower the costs.
Simmons said he was hopeful
that the cost could be reduced
enough to complete the pavilion.
Another hurdle for the project is
a June 30 deadline to complete the
pavilion set by the state grant.
"We're asking for an extension
of 60 or 90 days. We think we'll
be able to get that."
The park is host to the Florida
Forest Festival as well as the
Florida State Bluegrass Festival.
"The purpose of the pavilion is
to provide rain and sun protection

equipment for major public

Doug Cantrell. "I've said it before
and I'll say it again--our defense is
a special group who has kept us in
all of our games. They' are

for us to play a state playoff game
,at our field," said Cantrell. "The
girls have worked hard and battled
through injuries to put themselves
amongst the best in the state. If
we win against South Walton,
we'll likely see Jacksonville
Bolles on Jan. 31, in the second
round. That will make us one of
the final 16 teams in 3A in the
state. We're excited and hope the
community comes out to support
the girls in their bid to have a

You left this life so suddenly with no time for goodbyes,
No solace for our heartache, no answer to our "whys."
Your leaving left our lives torn with a gaping empty space,
With sadness, we surrender you into the Lord's embrace.
Go with God and know that we will always dearly miss you
And till we see you once again...may angels hug and kiss you.

The guest speaker at the Jan. 17
meeting of the Perry Rotary Club
was Assistant State Attorney
A Rotarian himself, Myrick has
worked with the third judicial
circuit in Perry since 2003.
Myrick spoke on the Florida
court system and some of its
differences from other states.
"Florida is unusual," Myrick
said, in that it does not make use
of grand juries often. Instead
assistant state attorneys use
information, and reports to make
their own decisions About which
cases to bring to trial.
"We have a lot of power and a
lot of responsibility," Myrick
The Florida court system has a
very open discovery process. In
fact, it has one of the most open
systems in the country, according
This means that prosecutors
must turn over almost all the
information, they have to the
defense attorneys. In other states,
the defense attorney might not
even be able to,. get police reports
or witness statements until they
come up in trial.
In Florida, there are discovery
d -.nitbn whpe th. nrQ~iif
The deposition also allows him
to see what direction the defense is
heading, he said.
Myrick said his most important
tool is the plea agreement.
'"Without plea agreements, the
system would come crashing
down," he said.
Of the some 300 cases he had
last year, between pleas and cases
that "fell apart", he had less than
five cases go to trial, Myrick said.
Most sentencing in these cases
are governed by guidelines
established in the mid-1980s.
The guidelines take into account
the crime committed, the degree of
the crime, the defendant's prior
criminal history and give
prosecutors a bottom range for the
- -- -- --
lays out its case before trial. -- "-' '
While some prosecutors arej
'against such an open system,
Myrick said he is for it.

Letter spells out fears over
proposed coal power plant
Editor's note: The following letter
was penned to Howard Leach and
forwarded for publication by Diane
Dear Mr. Leach:
We are a newly formed group of
Taylor County families opposed to
a coal burning power plant in our
community. This plant will add to
the pollution we endure from the
Buckeye Mill. We fear 'the
combined emissions will result in
chemical reactions harmful to our
Project managers tell us this
plant will use traditional
pulverized coal- rather than the
more environmentally sound
gasification process. That means- it
will contribute to global warming
as carbon dioxide emissions will
not be captured. Mercury, which is
neither removed nor regulated by
the government, will be deposited
in our rivers and the water
surrounding Florida. Families plan
to leave the community if this plant

Letters to the Editor
Writer: Library is needed in Steinhatchee
This isto clarify the article in
Friday's Perry News Herald
regarding a library at Steinhatchee
The article stated that a
."contingency from Steinhatchee
was asking the Taylor County
School Board to consider allowing
the multi-purpose room in the new
gymnasium (which also houses the
middle school) ito be used for a
Community public libra ry." While
this is' partially correct, a more
accurate depiction of what was said
at the meeting was that a library,
which would serve both the
students and the community, was
SAt the present time Steinhatchee
-JSchool does not have a library for
its students. .Both Perry Primary
and Taylor County Elementary
have libraries as do the middle and
high schools. Since Steinhatchee
serves kindergarten through eighth
grade, this is a .lamentable
Since the Taylor County Library
Board has shown an interest in
helping get. a grant tpo fund' a
.librarian position for a community
library in Steinhatchee and the
school needs a library, combining
forces seems to make good sense.
The students would have full use of
the library during school hours and
the public would have' access to a
library- perhaps ts o evenings a
week and/or on weekends. There
,would be two adults, the paid
employee-and a volunteer. during
the community library nights.
For some background, the
building that presently houses the
health clinic and the school offices
was originally intended to house a
community library and was funded
as such. The new facility is better
equipped for a library with
computer access already built into
the, framework. .
As SAC Chairman at
Steinhatchee School, I am first and
foremost interested in having a
good library for our students. As a
life long reader and member .of the
community, I am thrilled at. the
possibility of the highest and best
use of library resources for our.
village. With the support of the
Library Board and the School
Board and the many readers of
,Steinhatchee and Jena, we can
make it happen.
Just look at our Community
Be mindful of where you step
In our community there are
'many individuals with total .hip
replacements. Knee replacements
are also numerous. All year, these
people walk in lines to purchase a
meal away from home. But is often'
easier to. pump gas into their
automobiles than to be standing
with other customers in food lines.
A serious problem happens when
anyone in front of the elderly with'
surgical repairs suddenly steps
backward without warning. Even a
person with no damage in the legs
might be knocked to the floor. The
elderly with fragile', remaining
bones and arthritis may need to be
taken to a hospital. Maybe the leg
.can be fixed again, but it could be
impossible if the bone is badly'

Taylor County Development
Authority proudly claim to have
sought a coal burning utility for the
past 20 years, despite development
of coastal tourism and the
migration -of south Florida
population toward north Florida.
Our county commissioners,
acting solely on the advice of this
Authority, voted to invite the coal
plant to locate in Taylor County.
They did not put the subject on a
board agenda to enable citizens to
ask questions or discuss the idea.
They did not hear a presentation by
the power consortium delineating
the technology of the plant nor its'
ramifications on quality of life in
our community of 20,000. They,
did not question the .chemical
nature or quantity of emissions,
location of transmission lines,'
temporary and long-term storage
of coal or by-product, nor*
groundwater/aquifer effect. They
did not ask scientists, physicians,
It was a night when I deserved an hour
of -solitude, an escape from the
remainder of the house and its
occupants, a little peace and quiet, and
So after starting the washing machine,
the clothes dryer and the dishwasher, I
escaped up 13 stairs to the bathroom,
that might irreverently be referred to as
my inner sanctuary. I'm an only child-
and I don't share well. But my
bathroom: I don't share at all.
Lavender bath bubbles had been.
among the gifts of Christmas, and I was
about to enjoy the bounty.
I've always enjoyed a hot bath--so hot
that your skin turns; red aand 'you feel:
sick when you ,get out. 'That's & good
On that night, while steam rose from
the bubbles, I sunk down into the water
that I was sure had curative powers..
Minutes later, I wanted more hot water.
As I moved to turn the faucet, a small
green lizard crawled off a bath sponge:
of the same color.
I didn't jump or scream. I chose to be
calm. I like the green lizards--not in my
bath, mind you-- but as a general rule, I
co-exist with them better than those
skinks-from-hell which look like snakes.
"How did you get in here?",I asked the
lizard and he didn't reply. I looked up
and around, for any crevice which might
have allowed him entry. I had brought*
no. plants in, this second-story
bathroom, and.I was clueless.
"I'll get the boys to get him out when
I'm through,," I decided, going for one
more curative dip while keeping an eye
;upon the uninvited guest.
:"I usually bathe alone," I told the
lizard, and he looked at me so
curiously. It must be nice to be cute and
well-dressed 24 hours a-day. When he
cocked his head, he looked like the
Geico gecko which has become a
favorite creature we all admire. I'm riot.
sure I would have been surprised if this
lizard had addressed me with an
Instead, he lost his footing and fell in
the tub with me.
I was no longer calm, because he was
swimming around like a mad lizard,
trying to find his way out of this watery
"Aiiiihhhhh," I screamed mightily,
standing up with bubbles all over me.
"Get out," I screamed again. ,
"Help me," I screamed a third time.
Down below, the 24-hour news
channel, coupled with .three running
appliances and a Play Station 2,
obscured any idea of mutiny from this
or environmentalists for
information about possible risks.
The commissioners followed
this secretive maneuver by asking
the county administrator to write to
you encouraging you to sell land to
the power project. We heard you
speak on Public Radio, saying that
you hoped the "most advanced
technology" would be used, "like
the project in Orange County." We
learned that gasification (the

Moments later, the lizard's furious

"Oh my God," I said to only God, I
suppose. "He's dead in my bath water."
Then I realized he was probably
boiling, so I grabbed my tube of bath gel
and used it aska little life preserver. As'
soon as T got it within reach of the little
green fellow, he climbed aboard and I
placed him on the side of the tub.
-I was breathing furiously, but he was
breathing more furiously. As I sat back
and wondered what he had done in my
water, I saw his chest heaving back and
forth, while simultaneously, his eyes
were shifting back and forth, arid his
spiffy, chartreuse green had boiled into
a cooked-okra look. In fact, he did look
like a skinny, cooked okra, with eyes
and a heartbeat.
I studied him carefully, wondering if
he would die before my eyes. I observed
that his tail was twice as long as' his
short body. He sat there stunned, as
