Will re-advertise amendments
stand ground in
debate with DCA
The Taylor County Commission
is sticking to the decision made at
its meeting two weeks ago in a
debate with the state's Department
of Community Affairs (DCA) over
how the department handles
certain comprehensive plan
amendments in the county.
At Monday night's meeting,
commissioners' agreed to re-
advertise two amendment
applications as small-scale
amendments even though it is
DCA's opinion that they be
classified as regular amendments.
Small scale amendments only
require one reading on the county
level and do not go through a full
review before DCA.
The issue began when a letter,
dated Jan. 13, was sent from Kelly
Martinson, assistant general
counsel for DCA, to Enid Eharbar
with the North Central Florida
Regional Planning Council
(NCFRP). In it, Martinson said
amendments that changed land use
designations to "mixed-use urban
development" would have to be
processed as regular amendments
since that designation has a sliding
density scale ranging from four
units per acre to 20 depending on
;the availability of water and sewer.
S"Given that the current future
land use category within the
proposed future land category
:allows one unit per acre and the
proposed future land use category
:(mixed used urban development)
allows over 10 units per acre, the
-amendment cannot be processed as
:a small scale amendment,"
Ehrbar then sent an e-mail to
-county staff telling them of DCA's
opinion, and the commission
decided to consider two upcoming
amendment- applications regular
amendments, even though they
,.Aere under the usual 10-acre
The amendments in question'
were: an application by Kenneth B.
Hutchins to amend the future land
use classification from agricultural
; rural residential to mixed-use'
urban development on a parcel
containing 9.95 acres, more or less;
and an application by Bishop Clark
III and Deborah Casey, Leisure
Lands Consulting, LLC, as agents
for Lindsey Island, LLC, to amend
the future land use classification
from conservation to mixed-use
urban development on several
parcels of land totaling 9.67 acres,
more or less.

Oh, how I love to call
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
No matter how it looks, remember that God looks at
the heart, not the outer appearance. Committed to
service and sacrifice, together we all can reach higher
heights and reach others with the Gospel of Jes'us
Christ. God is not through with me yet. I'm not where
I should be, but I'm not where I usd to be.
No.matter how hard it looks, remember that God
looks, and because he looks, we can move forward with.
"I am the alpha and omega, the first and the last, the
begitining and the end."
His name is the sweetest name I know..

Christ, from his triumphal entry
into Jerusalem to his tortured
crucifixion on Calvary and then to
his glorious resurrection from the
dead on Easter morning. Directed
by First Baptist's musical director
Sara Grambling, the multi-church
choir idea was a natural.
"There is power in numbers," she
said. "Hopefully, the more
churches we can involve, the
bigger the impact on the
community. More people praying,
more people inviting the lost, more
people coming to check out the
production out of curiosity, more
people excited about the Gospel of
Jesus Christ, thus, more people
there to see the story of Jesus'
amazing love for mankind."
Grambling talked about the
tremendous benefits of fellowship
with "brothers and sisters" from
other congregations. "We're all on
the same team anyway, so, it just
makes sense to me to join together
for things such as this. I love
involving other people and
allowing people to serve where
they are called to serve and have
fun doing it. There is great joy and
freedom in serving Jesus."
"Forever Triumphant," in
rehearsal since January, has already
faced and overcome many
challenges. The first hurdle was

into the bustling marketplaces in
the desert of old Jerusalem and the
dark hill of Calvary. A team of
volunteers led by Patti Owens
tackled the problem with plans,
hammers and masses of fabric.
Next came the tricky configuration
of sound and lights as a volunteer
stage crew decided how to move
80 people around on the church
Then,' of course, the need for
costuming had to be met. Wardrobe
director Deborah Adams
coordinated an effort' that
combined using biblical costumes
from a previous First Baptist
production nearly 10 years ago,
"The Victor," and finding volunteer
seamstresses to make the rest of the
robes. Feet needed to be sandaled
and Roman centurions needed to
be decked in red and gold. Actors
had to be encouraged to take .on
demanding roles from narrators to
shopkeepers, from soldiers to Jesus
Finally, it was a logistical
challenge to gather churches
together for rehearsals of both
music and staging as Grambling
worked with Clyde Cruce,. choir
director of Pleasant Grove Baptist.
Grambling said, "All of this:was
important, but not as challenging
as our need to never lose sight of-
the purpose of this production,
which is to honor the Lord, to bring
the story of Jesus' death :and
resurrection and His gift of
salvation to a hungry world. :
"Jesus is a real person, with an
unexplainable love for people; He
longs for a relationship with every
human being. As a believer; we
have been commanded to share the
good news. That's what we: are
doing -- sharing the good neWs of
Christ's love with all who will heat,
"And last, but really first and
number one," Grambling said,'
"God laid this mass choir:and
multi-church involvement on: my
heart from the beginning. HIe'sj
Lord. I do what He leads me to do,.
I'm just grateful that the 6ltied
churches sensed the same leaktngig

Academic team places second, qualifies for nationals
The Taylor County High School
.TCHS) academic team took
second place Saturday at the
National Academic Quiz
Tournaments (NAQT) State
Championship held at the
University of Florida.
Their second place finish earns
them a bid for the NAQT national
tournament, scheduled for June 2-3
in Chicago, I1.
In academic competition, teams
of four compete against one another,
in a series of 20 questions, calld'd
toss-ups. Team members are
allowed to buzz in--like in
Jeopardy--at any time during the
-uestion or for five seconds after
-he moderator is finished without
,onferring with their teammates. If
they. answer correctly, their team is
awarded 10 points and given a
multi-part bonus question worth a
'otal of 30 points, during which the
team can discuss the question
Taylor began the day with a 415-
45 win over Bishop Moore
Catholic of Orlando. Tim Machula
lead Taylor's scoring in the round
with seven toss-up questions and
two power answers. In NAQT
format tournaments, players can
earn an additional five power
points for answering a question
very early before a designated
Jordain -"Robertson and Nafees
Khan followed with two questions
each and Gerard Massey had one..
The team continued with two
more convincing wins over
Branford (235-110) and Eastside B
of Gainesville (185-125).
In the Branford game, all of
Taylor's players picked up points as
Machula had three toss-ups and
Massey two. Khan picked up a
power along with two toss-ups and
Robertson had one.
In round four, Taylor survived a
down-to-the-wire game against
Suwannee, 230-225, before
defeating Niceville 295-140.
Following lunch, the local team
stumbled, dropping its next three
games to Hardee A (320-80),
Vanguard of Ocala (285-120)and
Plant City B (370-40).
All four of Taylor's players put
up strong numbers during regular
play. Machula led with 45.62
points per game, placing ninth
overall for the tournament. Khan
followed with 13.75 points per
game; Massey had 10.00; and
Robertson finished with 8.12.
Rachel Heartsfield also traveled
with the team, but did not play.
Taylor's 5-3 record during
regular play earned the team a spot'
in the playoffs.
After defeating East Side A in
the first round, Taylor faced
Vanguard, which had defeated
them earlier in the day. Taylor
rebounded and survived Vanguard
to continue to the championship
game against Plant City B.
In a hard fought game, Taylor
held its own, but ultimately fell
"I'm really proud of our kids,"
Coach Mark Viola said. "If there
was anything we were missing this
year, it was convincing wins. We'd
win the games we were supposed
to, but we just couldn't seem to put
them away early like we did in
"Going into the playoffs with
three straight losses, the players
could have easily given up. Instead
they defeated high quality teams,
and took Plant City to the last
This is the second time a team
from Taylor County High School
has qualified for NAQT nationals.
Taylor traveled to Houston, Texas,
in 2004 and finished fourth in the
small school division.
The team is now preparing for
the Commissioner's Academic
Challenge in the Contemporary

"We're working on a series of

MainStreet housing initiative
We can appreciate the good
intentions of MainStreet Perry and
salute the City of Perry for its
cooperative spirit, but we completely
disagree with the site selected for
MainStreet's new housing initiative
for moderate-to-low income families.
.This site, located at the corner of
Willow and Jefferson streets, 'is near
the entrance to the historic downtown
district of Perry--just a stone's throw
from city hall. Across from this lot,
dne realtor and two CPA's are located.
On one side, a veterinarian practices.
If this piece of property is zoned
"residential," it is zoned incorrectly.
This site should be reserved for
future city development and
expansion. Moving homes into this
area 'serves neither the homeowners,.
ior the city well.'
' We believe the council should
continue to support this housing
program and MainStreet should be
congratulated for securing a funding
source for buyers who meet the
program's criteria. But we question
the logic of putting $85,000 modular
homes on a piece of property of equal
value. How would the new
homeowners be able to afford the
property taxes? Even people who can
afford to build $350,000 homes don't
put them on pieces of property in the
same price category.
This region of Jefferson Street has a
high value as commercial property.
We believe, in a few short years, the
city will regret conveying the property
(assessed at $87,600, but probably
worth more) to first-time
homeowners. And we believe the
homeowners will come to regret the
location, too--downtown traffic
doesn't provide a conducive
environment for children's play.
Certainly MainStreet wants a visible
location to showcase its new housing
program, but this site is not the one.
The city council should work to find a
more suitable 'location for these
homes and to eye--carefully--options
for future development and growth at
the Willow-Jefferson St. site. The
property is, after all, owned by the
taxpayers. City council members are
mandated to be good stewards of
these tax dollars
While this is a good idea, it's the

I would like to make a few
points that struck me as interesting
when reading the six-part series,
First, the ideas were given as
written in the book, but were not
followed up with any facts or ideas
about what this county is pursuing
for businesses. There weren't any
examples of what the TCDA has in
its "pocket" for a development plan.
for Taylor County.
The first segment of the series
states: "Successful organizations
are achieving their goal as a result
of having community support for a
well-conceived plan of action,
which serves as a blueprint for an
economic development program."
Is our community supporting a
plan? If so, what is the plan and
when was it published?
The article talks, about increasing
the flow of money into the area.
The construction of a coal plant
will not do that without requiring
money to be spent on
consequences. After the plant is
built the money paid to
construction workers will move
on. The few permanent jobs will
require an outflow of community
money to expand services such. as
health, utilities, garbage, traffic
control, safety, schools and
Tourists, however, are generally
a constant inflow of money: they
stay at campgrounds; they stay at
motels; they purchase food; they
purchase gas; they purchase
propane; they eat out; they pay our
bed tax; they shop--clothing, cards,
newspapers, local items (i.e.: t-

By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
We sat under the stars Saturday night
and listened as one bluegrass band,
after another, picked and, fiddled their
way to happiness at Forest Capital
There's something soothing about live
music in an open-air setting, regardless
of the style. The slither of a moon
watched through the pine trees, as
hundreds of sets of toes tapped to the
rhythm of the music.
I was about as far away in my own
-thoughts as I could be, when the
Daughter leaned over in her folding
chair and suggested, "My worst
nightmare is that we would be a
traveling bluegrass band."
"That's pretty random," I said. "What
do you mean?"
"Look at them," she said. "They sing
together; they. travel together; they eat
together; they live together." And as an
afterthought, she added, "They even
smile in unison."
"I get the part about you not wanting
to live and eat with us 365 days a year,",
I. countered, "but what's so wrong with
singing and smiling together?"
"Maaaammmaa," she said to me with a
tone. "It would be so humiliating. You
would be the one up there clogging and
clapping, and we wouldn't be able to
stand it," she said, gesturing toward her
"And speaking of the brother," she
quickly added, "do you really think he'd
stand in a line with us or smile if we
It was an interesting thought. Not
only are these family bluegrass bands
remarkably talented, they must also
have good interpersonal skills as well.
Suddenly I was sitting there, enjoying
the music and wondering about the
parallel. That's when technical
difficulties arose. "We've blown a fuse,"
announced the patriarch of this singing
group. "Please be patient with us while
we fix this problem."
Oh yeah, we're not cut to be a
performing, family. During technical
difficulties, the daughter -would lay
down and, take a nap; the son would
throw his guitar on the floor in disgust;
the father would go to the edge of the
woods and listen to the birds sing; and I
would make circles around the sound
guys, taking pain relievers.
"Or worse," the daughter said. "You
and dad could stand up there and tell
jokes." She absolutely cringed and
shivered at the thought.
"Plus," I' added as an afterthought,
"these are wonderfully talented
musicians. That might be our biggest
hurdle in becoming a performing band-
--we don't have enough talent."
Right on cue, the husband started to
sing the first few lines with Mountain
Heart as .they rendered George Jones'
favorite, '"Grand Tour." Deeply he sang,
"Step right up....come on in..."
"Oh no," exclaimed the daughter, her
chin dropping to the chest. "Surely
nobody knows me...but tell him to be
We were surprised that the son knew
the words to that song, too. He gave us
a .solo rendition the next day at lunch.
"Step right up....here's the chair...," he
croned, and the daughter sank into
deep humiliation again.
"There is no way we could travel
together and perform as a family," she
It was a. fitting send-off since she was
headed back to college. "So if you don't
want to travel with us 3.65 days a year as
a bluegrass band, you need to get back
to that institution of higher learning
and learn higher things--become a
superior student.... get your diploma,.."
"And get a job," the dad said, singing
the words as if they were part of the
George Jones' soliloquy.
"Shall I clog?" I asked.
"I'm out of here," she said, and the
three remaining family members stood
in a line, smiled in unison, and waved
rhythmically. I don't care what she
says; I think we have potential.
