may request


to purchase


updated equipment

Doctors' Memorial Hospital has been authorized to come before the
county commission in the future to ask that excess 'sales tax revenue bp
used to purchase new equipment.
That was the result of a public hearing held at last week's county
commission meeting.
The new DNMH facility was purchased with bonds financed through the
county's one-cent infrastructure sales iax. "
The question at hand "as whether the hospital could use excess even e
to purchase equipment rather than use it to pay off the bonds quicker.;
"My philosophy is that over time, if the hospital can purchase ''new
equipment and can safely treat patients. saving them a' 100-mile roundly,
we should, said DMH CEO Rick Brow n. who addressed the commission. .
"I don't decide %.hat is safe. I-make my medical staff tell me 'what is safe.
"I don't see this as an open check book," Brown said. "A hospital has tp
be self-sufficient." I'
He pointed to ihe financial gains the hospital has seep over the pasi three|


I..


years. .
"We're not out of the woods yet," he added. .
While he did not have a specific request at the meeting, Brown did ask
that "on a pase' b'y: case basis you allow me--after approval from py
board--Io come before you' with a business plan ,
For each case, thd commission would hold a public heating, to discussi-
the merits of the request, according to Brown's plan. '. 'I ; .
"What I would like to see is the reasoning, ehind the request apd "a
business plan to show hbw this is going to help ,the hospital become self-
sufficient," Commissioner Jack Brown said. ; .'
"I think the community wants the hospital to connue to improve'' he;
said. ...
Jack Brown added that he w anted to see the hospital paid off as son ps '
possible since the sales tax was the county's infrastructure ia.
"My board challenges me," Rick Brown said. "I want yo .to challenge
me. If the request is not good, kick me out." I
Commissioner Malcolm Page suggested a public hearing was no;fj
required for each request.
"I would like to see a public hearing," Jack Brown said. "It only takes
few days to advertise and give people a chance to be heard.", ,
"The more information we give to the community, the more support we
will get," Commissioner Pat Patterson said.
"I fully support that," Rick Brown said. "I see it as free advertising."

Well below last year's earnings

Buckeye announces 'breakeven'

profitability for Jan. to March '06


Buckeye Technologies Inc.
announced Friday that it expects its
profitability for the January-March
quarter will be near breakeven.
This would be significantly below
the $4.1 million (11 cents per
share) earned in January-March
2005.
The company had previously
indicated that it expected January-
March earnings to be slightly better
than the $1.9MM (5 cents per
share) earned in Odtober-
December 2005.
"We now believe we will fall
short of that level. Manufacturing
difficulties at our large wood pulp
mill in Florida related to the startup
of new equipment and
transportation issues which
reduced revenue have negatively
impacted our business," Buckeye
Chairman David B. Ferraro
said.
The financial shortfall versus the
comparable period last year is due
to the following:
The company's recently
upgraded cotton cellulose
manufacturing facility in
Americana, Brazil began to ship


market pulp in February. The plant
is currently providing trial
quantities for customer
qualifications. Although it will
make some market sales this
quarter, it will not produce
significant revenue until later this
year. The combination of startup
costs being incurred this year and
the loss of the profitability from the
tolling operations which the
company received in January,-
March 2005 will result in a
negative' impact of about $4.5
million pre-tax, or 8 cents per share
this quarter.
The company continued to
experience high energy costs in
January and February, but recent
trends indicate that energy costs
are returning' to more normal,
levels. "We implemented price
increases averaging 8 percent on
specialty wood cellulose products
in January. Although these price
increases were sufficient to
maintain our margins in the high
end segments of our markets,
pricing on fluff pulp has remained
flat and is, in fact, slightly below
the level we were achieving in


January-March 2005.
This combination of low prices
and higher costs will result in our
operating profit on fluff pulp being
about $5 million (minus 9 cents per
share) below the level achieved in
the comparable period last year,"
Ferraro said.
These negative factors will more
than offset the improvement the
company is achieving in its high-
end specialty fibers and nonwoven
inaterials, he continued.:
"While we are disappointed in
our financial results, we believe the
manufacturing difficulties that
plagued us this quarter are behind
us. We are pleased with the facility
we have constructed in Brazil and,
believe it will be a significant
profit contributor to the company
in the future. We are also
pleased with our ability to maintain
our margins in our high-end.
specialty fibers in the face of the
extraordinary energy driven cost
increases we have incurred,"
Ferraro said.
Buckeye plans to announce its
January-March 2006 earnings on
April 25.

equipment purchases providing the
commission was given a business
plan. Each request would be heard
during a public hearing.
Patterson seconded and the
measure passed 4-0. Commission
Chairman Daryll Gunter, due to a
scheduling conflict, was late to the


meeting and was not present during
the discussions.
The subject of equipment
purchases was first brought up last
October, when Rick Brown asked
commissioners to consider letting
the hospital use the money to
purchase orthopedic equipment.
While commissioners at the time
expressed an interest that the
money be used to help pay off the


hospital, they agreed to discuss it
during an already scheduled joint
meeting between them and the
DMH Board of Directors in
December. At that meeting,
however, it was decided that the
issue should be discussed at a
public hearing to allow residents to
give input. At last week's public
hearing, no one from the public
spoke on the topic.

Woman's Club remembers Hampfto


By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
Managing Editor
It might be a stretch to say that
Ross Morrell knows the old
Hampton Springs Hotel like the
back of his hand.
Or it might be accurate.
This former chief of the Bureau
of Historic Preservation has been
working with the restoration of
Hampton Springs Hotel and
grounds for more than three years,
and shared: some of his perceptions
of progress at last week's Perry
Woman's Club meeting.
"Period postcards remind us of
the resort's grandeur," said Morrell
who displayed the color-tinted
cards from the early,1900s. Then
he got down to specifics. "We
first, thought these two towers
were cosmetic and, as it turns out,
they were indeed supporting the

where visitors gathered: the

Forget Easter chicks: how


about a manatee for Easter?


Now here's a fresh new look at
Easter gifts--an idea which does
not include the adoption of rabbits
or the care of green plants.
"Whiskers" and "Lily" are two
real, wild manatees up for
adoption in the Save the Manatee
Club's Adopt-a-Manatee program
at Blue Spring State Park.
.For $25, the club will send a
Manatee Easter Buddy package to
whomever you wish. This
inriludes an adoption certificate, a
photo of the manatee you choose,
a .biography and a membership
handbook loaded with information
a.nd pictures.. A one year-
subscription to the Manatee Zone
(the club's quarterly newsletter) is
: also part of the package. Or for
$35, each new member who
adopts a manatee will also receive
a cute, plush manatee (while
supplies last).
"'- 3fMany people have told us they
prefer to give gifts that carry real
meaningg" said Judith Vale, the
'executive director of Save The
-Manatee Club, a non-profit


organization. "That's why
manatee adoptions make such
popular gifts at Easter and other
special occasions throughout the
year. There are concerned
individuals across the nation and
around the world who really care
about what happens to the gentle,
curious manatees who. live
dangerous existence's in Florida's
busy waterways."
Save the Manatee Club features
adoption programs at Blue Spring
State Park, Homosassa Springs
Wildlife State Refuge and Tampa
Bay with a total of 30 manatees
from which to choose. Easter-
Buddies, Whiskers and Lily, from
the Blue Spring adoption program
are both very popular manatees,
Vallee said, "who enjoy spending
time in the warmer waters of the
spring during the cooler winter \
months."
According to Vallee, there are
only about 3000 manatees left in
Florida waters. "These harmless,
aquatic vegetarians face numerous


human-related threats from
collisions with boats, ingestion of
fish hooks and entanglement in
crab trap and monofilament
fishing line. Also,. increasing
human population growth has
resulted in destruction of their
habitat."
Back in 1981, singer/songwriter
Jimmy Buffett and former Florida
governor Bob Graham founded
Save the Manatee Club. Funds
from the club's adoptions and
donations go toward conservation
and education programs to protect
the endangered manatees and the
ecosystems they inhabit.

To adopt an Easter Buddy,
contact: Save the Manatee Club,
500 N. Maitland Ave., Maitland,
FL 32751 or call 1-800-432-5646
(JOIN). You may also visit the
website,
www.savethemanatee.org. "Here
yo can sign up for the club's free
newsletter or find out how to have
a manatee baby named for you at
Blue Spring," Vallee said.

Coach Price emphasizes character


By MARK VIOLA
Staff writer/Rotarian
The special guest speaker for the
March 14 Perry Rotary Club
meeting was Taylor County High
School Athletic Director Price


Harris.
Harris, who coaches football and
soccer at TCHS, spoke about the
current state of athletics as well as.
his philosophy when it comes to
coaching.


Harris himself played football
and baseball while attending
Madison County High School.
After graduating from Asbury
College, he began coaching, first at
Madison and then at Leesburg and

programs.


Williston before coming here.
"We're really excited," Harris
said of the coaches and players at
TCHS. "After the winter sports
came in, we're the sixth ranked
high school in 3A."
He credits the recent successes in
football, ,basketball' and soccer, as
well as a good early start for
baseball, on the players and his
coaches.
"The 'entire coaching staff
emphasizes character, and the guys
have bought into'that.
'"Kids are telling me we have
more school spirit now. They need
to have pride in their school," he
said.
"When they have pride in their
community, when they have pride
in their school, when they have
pride in themselves, their grades
will go up and they will be less
likely to get in trouble."
Harris is quick to praise his
'players and coaches, but is less
willing to give himself credit.
"It's not me. In fact, it's very little
me. It's them," he said.
Sports is not about winning, he,
added. "It's about learning life
lessons and getting through hard
times," Harris said, using baseball
as an example.
"Baseball is a game of failure.
The good players hit .300. If you
get a 30 on a test, you're going to
fail.
"The emphasis of the program is
we go out there; get better and
learn life lessons."

and youth up to age 16. It begins at
8 a.m. and the entry fee is $5. The

they love its quaintness, its
openness and its ability to let the
common man launch his little boat
in the river for a day in the fresh
air? Pretty soon the common man
will have to hire a helicopter to
drop his boat in the water, when all
the marinas close,;
Don't you see what is happening
now? Some marinas won't launch a
boat unless it's stored at their place.
Other marinas have been.
purchased and condos will be
lining the shore of the river. The
county dropped the ball years ago
when they said that "Steinhatchee
will take care of itself." Well, guess
what. The developers and real
estate dealers have taken over the
town. They're "taking care of it."
Frenzied meetings are held and
people are coercing the county not.
to put a boat ramp on the other side
of the old bridge. So this means
that the "old timers" are slowly'
being squeezed out and the
"influential people" are moving in.
with their money and their power.
They don't need a boat ramp--some
of them don't even own a boat--
what do they care? What happened
to all the roads that ended in the
water? Did the .county give them
all away? If so, why?
And so all the "little people' are
giving in and slowly moving out of
town. Where will they go? This
village is one of, or the last place
that was the real Florida. And yes,
-they will-all make some money, but
they would not leave if people
were not getting upset with the
status quo.
I've said my piece. I guess you
can tell how disgusted I am that our
town in being overrun by
developers who build and run.
Small villages are now an
endangered species.
Yours truly,
Joyce Chezem


It was one of those unusual weekends
when Saturday called for newspaper
work. Anytime this happens,- the
weather is splendid. The sun shines;
the Gulf of Mexico beckons; the world
plays while we newspaper people
huddle around computers and hope for
magic.
So it was Saturday, as we completed
this year's .Progress -edition: the sun
was shining, the world'was" calling--our,
names, one-by-one, hour after hour.
And then finally, at 3 p.m., we parted
ways knowing that Monday morning
would come too soon.
I went home and put my brain cells on
a chaise lounge. I couldn't read or
watch t.v. or think in any way or
direction. I needed sunshine, and I
found it in my backyard, but by 4 p.m.,
that blowing wind had chased me back
inside.
"I'll do something unexpected," I
announced to no one, for the house was
emptied for turkey hunting. "I'll make
brownies to go with supper." We
haven't had brownies since we said
"Happy New Year" and I determined that
the two adults in the house were going
to lose weight. Three months later, with
the scale declaring much the same
weight for both of us, I simply don't
care.
The husband had already been put on
alert that I wasn't cooking supper, and
he had the grill ready to produce a meal
at dark. I pulled out my "Best Scratch
Brownies" recipe and proceeded to cook
with joy in my heart.
"I am better than my family deserves,"
I assured myself, and it was nice that no
one was around to disagree.
There's something mesmerizing about
watching semi-sweet chocolate chips
melt. Add butter and the mixture just
gets creamier. Add vanilla and it
sheens.
"These are glorious," I said.
The pan was ready; the oven was
ready. I knew by the time the sun set,
the house would smell like chocolate
heaven and I wanted to go there.
Fun work calls for necessary work,
and it's just as well that I was close by
the oven in order to handle clean-up, for
my oven did not drop from heaven; it
crawled up from hell. It cooks like it's
from hell--prone to burn things on the
bottom and leave them raw on top. I
compensate with a series of
temperature and mind games which-
occasionally work. Every appliance in
my kitchen has needed to be replaced
except for the oven which I long to
replace and that just proves its origin,
in my thinking.
So on the top shelf of the oven, within
my reach, those brownies baked and the
chocolate aroma wafted through the
house. Even the dog noticed from the
great outdoors, and started sniffing at
the porch door.
Soon, a thunderous entry was made by
men in camo with guns and masks,

turkey calls and portable chairs, bottled
waters and boots.
"Brownies?!" the son announced,
happy that the new year's resolutions
were now -dust.
"From scratch?" the husband asked,
duly impressed as he read the recipe
card.
He grilled; it was good. We had salads
Sand rice.,,"Eat all N our salad, and you
.-can have-. a brownie," I-the mother--
announced, happ) that I had something.
to hold o\er the. son's head as
enticement.
Then right in the middle of
conversation, I looked up and a sick
feeling crept over me.
"WAha t's W\rong?" the husband asked.
The son was silent.
I felt the color drain out of my face, as
I confessed,, "I didn't put any sugar in
those brewinies."
Silence.
"Well, they look great," the husband
countered, and they did, sitting on that
counter, .cooling a bit, flaunting their
delightful aroma. -It was one of those
magical baking experiences when the
oven-from-hell succumbed to a moment
of conscience and baked its contents to
perfection.
Now I know why: that oven knew.
That oven knew that I had left out the
sugar.
"How -do brownies without sugar
taste?" the son wondered aloud, having
finished. his salad as directed, for no
apparent reason.
"Horrible," I said. And then my tirade
began: I can't believe I spent that much
time and effort to bake something
special arnd then forgot one of the most
important ingredients. I'm so stupid;
that's so stupid. Ladadada.
"Well, they may be okay," the husband
said. What an optimist. ,
The brownies cut perfectly, too;
obviously the knife was in on this
maniacal scheme \ith the oven. The
browTnies lifted out of the pan perfectly.
They were wonderfully warm and filled,
with melted chocolate chips.
We passed out three and, in unison,
we took a bite, with concern.
"Sure would be good with sugar in
them,' I said.
The son finished his. "They're okay,"
he said, walking by the other 21
brownig.,;.and that never happens.
Those brownies still sit on my
countertop as a testament to my
haughtiness and inevitable failure. I've
never known brownies to sit on a
counter'so long.
Last .night, after no activity in the
brownie pan, the son walked by and
said, "I sure wish those brownies had
sugar in them."
I walked by and said, "I can't believe I
left out the sugar."
And the husband walked by and said,
"Mmm, sugar-free brownies. I can put
low-fat chocolate ice cream on them and
call it a diet." What an optimist.

Writer challenges technology to be used at new power plant


Dear Editor:
This is in response to Mike
Lawson's letters on the coal plant.
JEA officials are showing no
interest in building a plant using
the latest coal technology despite
the fact that our county
commission passed a resolution
informing JEA that the plant "be
built using only the very latest and
cleanest technology available, such
as the coal gasification process."
Only Commissioners Darryl
Gunter and Clay Bethea voted
against this resolution for a cleaner
type plant.
Since passage of that resolution,
there has been no pressure for a
better plant coming from. local
officials, so JEA is thumbing its
nose and planning to build the
cheaper pulverized coal plant that
JEA officials have told me would
emit 300 pounds of mercury a year.
JEA officials also say they are
interested in using the better coal


gasification process in their next
project, but not in Taylor.
Since JEA officials say they
intend to buy five times the land
needed for their plant, any future
expansions would mean tons more
mercury bioaccumulating in our
rivers and the Gulf.
Mike Lawson has attempted to
downplay citizens' well-justified
fears about mercury, stating that
their "concentrations of mercury
will be low and within safe
standards" and that emissions
levels would meet federal and state
regulations and protect the most
vulnerable. These are outrageous
claims coming from a company
with a bad reputation for mercury
pollution.
* According to Florida Trend
Magazine citing EPA reports,
"JEA's St. Johns River Power Park
and Northside Generating Station
emit more mercury into the
atmosphere than any power plants


'Answers' lead to more questions


Dear Editor:
First, let it be known that I'm as
opposed to the Taylor County
Power Plant as Mike is for it.
Second while I'm not a citizen of
Taylor County as Mike says he
plans to be, I do have, right now,
-family that pays taxes in Taylor
County and I have had family in
the area before there ever was a
Taylor County. So even though I
live in Tallahassee and I disagree
with my fellow citizens here who
think our city should be involved
in the plant, I feel I have "standing"
to speak out about the plant.
Mike's answers to citizens'
questions pose more questions than


they answer. Some, in my view, are
disingenuous, misleading or
patently incorrect.
1. The statement that they have
"incorporated the most advanced
and effective emission control
technologies available into the
plant's design" is flat not true. They
have incorporated the very
minimum controls allowed by law.
The most vulnerable, the ones he
says will be protected, the old, the
young and the pulmonary impaired,
will suffer for it should the plant be
built. The availability of better
controls is known to them but they

in the state."
JEA's ads and graphs describing
emissions conveniently omit
mercury and carbon, the two items
most harmful to humans and the
environment.
The plain truth is that
government standards have been
lowered to help coal plants go on
line sooner and EPA's new mercury
rule delays by at least 10-15 years
protections from increased
mercury emissions which end up in
rivers and oceans, fish and
ultimately, humans. Those
protections are too little, too late' to
help our next generation of
children.
Why does that matter so much to
me? Because my life has been
dedicated for the past 25 years to
helping the youth of this
community have a more hopeful
future.
Many of those kids cannot afford
to move away from a dangerously
polluted county; many already
have special needs. Educators tell
us some 600 school children
already require special ed--an
alarming. number in this small
population. We already have
serious pollution problems here
and neither the electric utility
company nor EPA has evaluated
the effects of exposure to multiple
pollutants at the same time.
I will not stand idly by while
elected officials who should
protect us, and, incredulously,
even a few in health and education
roles, advocate for a polluting
coal plant despite its dire
consequences.
It is documented that thousands
die or are sickened each year as a
direct result of coal plant pollution.

devastating health effects of coal
have been presented to
commissioners by medical doctors
and other professionals over the
year, yet they choose to ignore it
while lending all their support to
dirty industry. What is their real
motivation?
It is not about jobs. Our 3.9
percent unemployment rate is the
lowest in decades. The highly
teclmical nature of the jobs will not
help those currently unemployed.
There are no other benefits of this
coal plant, except the few
permanent jobs. JEA will bring in
a big company like Bechtel to build
this plant, then Mr. Lawson will be
out of here. The cost to our county
will be enormous and the health
impact huge.
One gram of 'mercury will
pollute a lake and every fish in it.
Even a small amount of mercury
makes fish unsafe to eat, because
mercury is such a potent
neurotoxin and because mercury
accumulates in tissue. Even a
minuscule amount can
permanently damage a fetus.
"Mercury can impair, damage,'
and even destroy functioning nerve


tissue--much like lead," according
to Dr. Larry Silver, past president
of the Learning Disabilities
Association of America and
clinical professor of psychiatry-at
Georgetown University Medical
Center. Mercury impairs a child's
ability to learn and function
normally. High levels like those
emitted by coal plants are known to
cause a variety of health problems
in humans including damage to the
brain, heart, lungs and immune
systems of people of all ages,
according to the U.S. EPA.
Mercury contamination also
threatens recreational fishing, a
time-honored Taylor County
pastime that is vital to our county's
economy. Studies indicate'that fish
consumption advisories cause
many anglers to reduce the number
of days they fish, choose other
locations to fish, and take fewer
overall fishing trips.
All year, concerned citizens have
worked side by side with
physicians and other professionals
to shed light on this
issue. Respected leaders in the
fields of new energy technologies,
conservation and efficiency from


around the country are attending
JEA meetings to urge JEA
officials to choose less polluting
options for their power needs. I
have attended some of those
meetings.
At one meeting, a specialist in
coal gasification technology and
others shared their expertise with
JEA for six hours telling them
about great advantages of the
newer cleaner burning coal
gasification (IGCC) technology
and how much it could save them
in the future. JEA officials initially
seemed interested, but now say
they want the cheaper plant.
We often only get one chance in
life to do the right thing.
Taxpayers are being denied a
choice in this matter. If our elected
county and city officials,
Development Authority, Chamber
of Commerce, Foley Timber and
Land and Buckeye, Florida fail to
do the right thing and support a
decision that sacrifices our health
and destroys our fragile coastal
environment, future generations
will pay the price for their
ignorance.

will not consider it because to
protect us and the other
vulnerable, will cost them too
much. It is better corporate
strategy to put the costs of this
plant onto others than to put it in
their bottom line.
2. The notion that government
agencies will monitor the plant's
emissions in any meaningful
way is, again, disengenuous.
3. In regard to water, and
specifically waste water, the plant
will use 14,000,000 gallons of
water per day from the ground.
Will they drink it? Where will it
go? I know their plan calls for
recycling the water, to reuse it
over and over but somewhere, at
14 million gallons per day, it has
to go somewhere. Perhaps it will
be "treated" wastewater or turned
into streams and dispensed into the
atmosphere. The statement that
"no wastewater will be discharged
from the plant." is not true on the
face of it.The statement might be
hidden in some sort of lawyerly
definition they will explain.
3.The entire "job" sales point is
a snare and a delusion. I won't
visit it here.
4. Mike brushes by the tax
exempt status of the plant. Neither
Taylor County nor Perry will get
any tax revenue from this!
I'm amazed that your
government would embrace the
project as enthusiastically as they
have, actually initiating JEA's
interest, when there will be no
benefit to the citizens except some
jobs, maybe. There could be some
sales- taxes I. suppose from
whomever does get the jobs but
that's about it as far as I can see.
Incidentally, you get no electricity
either. That all goes somewhere
else. It will go to areas that need
electricity but will not allow
something as bad as this plant to
be built in their backyard. That's
why the plans are to put it here.
They are counting on you and
your government.
