Taylor County Property
Appraiser Eldon Sadler has turned
down a free offer to get the
county's properly records digitized
so the public can view them online.
In a letter dated Jan. 20 to the
Suwannee River Water
Management District (SRWMD),
'Sadler stated it was difficult to
"build the whole county at one time
without creating a lot of errors.
S"We have done extensive work

on the parcel map in recent months
and will continue to do so as time
permits," Sadler states in the letter.
In a Jan. 11 letter from SRWMD
Deputy Executive Director Joe
Flanagan, it was pointed out that
the SRWMD Board -had passed a
resolution in September, to enter
into partnerships with all the
counties in the district to provide
financial and technical assistance
in order to reach the goal of Web

site access to parcel data prior to
Dec. 31, 2006. Flanagan stated that
follow-up discussions were held
with the .Taylor County
Commission to determine the
current state of parcel data for the
"Positional discrepancies were
found in the existing data and the
district offered to engage the
services of a contractor, on your
behalf, to provide the corrections
needed to proceed toward the goal
of .Web access to parcel data,"
Flanagan stated.
Sadler stated that he didn't feel
the contract services would be
"beneficial to our planned goal."
"It is our desire to create a
finished product that will be useful
to all concerned, and we find that
the goal is best met by taking'the
time to do it properly."
When SRWMD Executive
Director Jerry Scarborough
addressed the Taylor County
Commission in November, he said
that if the data was available
online, people would be able to go
online and determine if property

Taylor County's "Positive Place
for Kids," the Boys & Girls Club,
has a dream--a vision--for a state-
of-the-art facility which will
provide a safe and secure
environment where children can
grow and develop to their fullest
"Isn't it time for a sheltered
facility for our youth to be safe
after school?" Director Kevin Kidd
Currently, the club serves an
average of 225 children a day in
three separate units at two Perry
facilities, the main club at Veterans
Park (formerly Jaycee Park) and a
satellite unit at Jerkins Community
Center. The third unit serves youth
in Steinhatchee.
Last week, Kidd and B&G Club
President Karen Hankerson invited
the Perry City Council to join them
in helping make this vision a

and help us solicit donors," Kidd
Chief among the considerations
is the estimated 17-acre city-

Hankerson said the park was an
"agreeable site and suitable" for
the club's needs.

Land use changes

face closer scrutiny

How. some amendments to Taylor County's future land use map are
handled by the state will be changing due to a recent decision by the state's
Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA).
. Specifically, those wishing to change their land's designation to mixed-
use urban will now have to go through a full review by DCA.
. By state statute, there are two types of land use amendments. Large scale
amendments must go through a longer and more involved process than
their smaller counterparts. In addition, counties are only allowed to submit
large-scale amendments to the state twice a year.
Taylor County adopted a policy in 2005 in which large-scale
amendments were grouped together arid submitted twice a year.
' In comparison, small-scale amendments do not go through a full DCA
review and can be submitted more often. Florida statutes do have specific
criteria amendments must meet to be classified small-scale. Those
requirements include that parcels be smaller than 10 acres and the resulting

To make way for new monument .

'Flame of freedom' doused?

The Eternal Flame has graced downtown for more than 30
years. Members of the Veterans Memorial Park Committee
have asked that the flame be turned off in order to save money
so that the new Eternal Flame monument at their park could be

Taylor County's "Flame of
Freedom" niay be on the move.
Members of the Veterans
Memorial Park Committee have
asked that the downtown landmark
be "turned off" and their new flame
monument "turned on."
Committee Chairperson Pam
Feagle brought the request before
the Perry City Council last week,
noting that it would mean the
city would not incur any additional
expenses related to the gas used to
light the (one) flame.
"And we would like to take the
actual monument and have it
moved and put in a place we have
at the park for a future war
monument," she said.
When Mayor Emily Ketring
questioned the city's ownership of
the monument, Feagle turned to
copies of county commission

minutes from 1970.
"According to the minutes,
Evelyn Williams and Bob Jones
from the chamber approached the
county about putting a monument
at the courthouse. The city agreed
to install the gas line and provide
gas," Feagle said.
"The monument itself says it was
done by the city, chamber and
American Legion...so I don't know
anybody who really claims
ownership. Since the city has given
more in money than anybody else,
I thought I'd approach you first."
"I have no problem with
anything you've said. I think it's an
excellent plan," Councilman Doug
Everett said.
Local American Legion
,Commander Al Grubbs said that
"both the American Legion and the
VFW back the move."

"I don't anticipate any problem"
with that and would just ask that
the city help us move the
monument when the time comes,"
Feagle said, promising to forward
the request to remove the
monument to both the county and
chamber boards.
Since October, the city has
grappled with ways to meet
projected utility costs for the park
which were not anticipated in its
2005-06 budget,
To date, estimates call for $1,000
for gas, water and electric monthly
expenses at the park, not including
However, Ketring stressed at last
Tuesday's meeting that "the park
will open and it will be,

"At that time, we should be able
to make a solid decision (on the

it," Ketring said.
The hearing is scheduled during
the council's next regular meeting,
Tuesday, Feb. 14.
On Tuesday, Kidd said, "We

seems-the neighborhood is willing
to embrace us. Basically, the city
has told us that if there is no,
opposition, we snould be in and

He continued, "We are looking
for ways the city can assist us in
the construction of a new facility.
Their initial response, if they were
to donate the land at Loughridge
Park, would be a great first step
on their part and we would look
forward to much more assistance.
"We would like to utilize the
existing structure--the community
center--in the design of a new
facility. We wouldn't touch the
baseball field, understanding that
baseball fields are already at a
premium in the city, but we/dq
want to have enough land where

Interest in land to lead

new residential density be lower than 10 units per acre.
It is this latter requirement that has caused the problem.
According to Danny Griner with the county's Building and Planning
Department, he received an e-mail from Enid Ehrbar with the North
Central Florida Regional Planning Council (NCFRPC) stating that DCA
would no longer allow amendments changing land to mixed-use urban to
be classified as small-scale amendments.
This is due to the sliding scale for allowable residential density in
mixed-use urban in the county's land development code. Depending on the
availability of water and sewer hookups, the density can range from two
to 20 units per acre.
According to Ehrbar, it is DCA's opinion that even if the current level
of water and sewer service allows for a density below 10, that density
could change in the future if additional services are added.
There are currently two pending amendments that will be affected by the
change, Griner said. They will have to, go through a full review by DCA.
According to Griner, the county has submitted "a couple" such
amendments per year in the past.
"However, in the last year or so, we've seen a large increase in interest
in land by developers," Griner said. : ,
Whether the, increased interest would lead to more requests'to land
changes to mixed-use urban, he could not say.

Pace yourself...

Ready for FCAT?

Taylor County students have
made steady gains on Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test
(FCAT) scores during the past
several years, even though many
local counties of the same size
have been slipping.
IWith FCAT planned during
February and March, the
Department of Education (DOE)
has the following
recommendations for students who
are preparing for the test:
Space studying over days or
weeks. (Real learning occurs
through studying that takes place
over a period of time.) Understand
the information and relate it to
what is already known. Review it
more than once. (By doing this,
the student should feel prepared at
exam time.),
Don't "cram"'the night before--
cramming increases anxiety which
interferes with clear thinking. Get
a good night's sleep. Rest,
exercise, and eating well are as ,
important to test-taking as they
are to other schoolwork.: .- ,'.'-;, :;:
Read the directions carefully
when the teacher hands out the
test. If you don't understand them,
ask the teacher to explain.
Look quickly at the entire
examination to see what types of
questions, are included (multiple
choice, matching, true/ fale,
essay) and, if possible, the number
of points for each. This will help
you pace yourself.
If you don't know the an-,er
to a question, skip.it and go on.
Don't waste time worrying about
it. Mark it so you can identify it
as unanswered. If you have time at
the end of the exam, return to the
unanswered questionss.
DOE also offers' the follow ing
tips for parents whose children jre
taking FCAT:
Do's and Don't's
You can be a great help to your
children if you will observe these

do's and don't's about tests and
'* Don't be too anxious about a
child's test scores. If youi put too
much emphasis on test scores,
this can upset a child.
S'Do encourage children. Praise
them for the things they do well.
'If they feel good about
themselves, they will do their

net "nioe wh are" atai ot

best, unChildren who are afraid of
failing are more likely to become
anxious when taking tests and
more likely to make mistakes.
Don't judge a child on the
basis of a single test score. Test
scores are not perfect measures of
what a child can do., There are
many other things that might
influence a test score.

"Florida High has a good
program. We had already beaten
them twice in the regular season. I
knew beating them a third time--
on their home field--would be a
challenge," the coach said.
Taylor County's defense held
Florida High to only one shot on
goal during the first half while the
Bulldogs had five, the last coming
about three minutes before the
half on a boot by Josiah Anderson.
The Seminoles stepped up their
offense in the second half but the
Bulldogs rose to the challenge.
Midway through the second
half, Florida High's Daryn Hardy

got clear on a break-way but his
shot sailed wide.
"That was a key point in the
game when (goalie) Kendall
Thompson made a huge stop on
their best player," Harris said.
Thompson also had another key
save on a Florida High penalty

against a Seahawk team that never
quit," said Puhl. "Our girls came
to platy:"T'saw 6the 'gdod-thWifrgs''

The scouts and their families
each received a block of .wood,.
four wheels and four nails for axles
from which to create their vehicle.
"While the boys may have focused
on speed and design, the .real

scouts with the opportunity to
spend time with family members

woodworking skills," Pack leader
Karl Morgan said.

Each Cub Scout received a

participating in the event.

Morgan explained the details of
the races before Boy Scout
volunteers Paul Wiggins and Scott
Anderson set the cars on the track.

activities cause money to enter an

economy. These are known as
"primary or contributory

another state, money flows back to
the local economy. The money for
the wages paid to the workers in

"Yeah," one said, waiting for the rest

The other said nothing.

Economic Impact (In-Flow)
Even industries that import
money to an area can differ in their
impact. There are three basic
criteria when evaluating the
economic benefit of a business in
an area.
The source of the money

(imported or local) from which the
wages are paid.
The amount of worker earnings
above the average of the area.
The amount of additional
support industries.
As an example, an activity that
scores very high in economic
impact is the final assembly of
automobiles. This business pays
very high wages, typically all of
the products are exported from the
area (wage money imported), and
the need for the component parts
of the automobile fosters the
creation of a large number of
support companies.

less of an impact is the typical
"call center" where individuals, are
employed to solicit the sale of a
product or service throughout the
nation via -telephone. The wages
for this type of business are
generated from the sale of the
service outside the local economy
(imported), but the wages are
generally at or below the average
level of the area. Additionally,
such a business requires little if
any support industry after the
initial setup.
While both these businesses are
"primary industries" and import
,money to the area, the economic
impact is significantly different.
