Phase two would continue the
canal across Second Avenue
(which will be replaced by a
bridge) to the county-owned land
and spring behind Second
Avenue, and create a large
bowl to hold boats while people
put in and take out.
Two nearby lots are being
considered for parking.
There are some permitting issues
to overcome, Committee Chairman
Earle Greene said, but "the

are not insurmountable."
Permitting could take two to four
years, he said. "That's why we have
a short-term phase one."

Finished by June, 2007.
"We have the. developers'
commitment to help secure the two
lots," said Commissioner Clay
Bethea, a strong proponent for a
boat ramp in Steinhatchee.
While the funding process for
such a' land purchase would be
slow, Bethea said, the developer
could purchase the land quickly.
According to Bethea, the Woods
property developers are willing to
purchase the land in question if it
becomes available and then sell it
to the county.. '

Commissioner Jack Brown
said. "We know there will be

Several of the Dixie County
commissioners suggested, the
existing boat ramp on their side of
the river is a viable "short-term"
s optiofi if they could find property
e for parking.
d "Our commission doesn't want to
spend money across the river,"
Bethea said, adding that he would
not ask the Dixie County
commission to do so either.
Bethea did ask if they would be
willing to pass resolutions in
support of Taylor's project to help
with state and federal agencies.
Dixie County commissioners
agreed, and the Taylor
commissioners said they would
reciprocate for projects on the
other side of the river.
The hearing was then opened to
public comment and in a contrast
of previous meetings held on the
issue in which emotions ran high,
most voiced support of the plan.
Several simply asked questions
about the project, while others
expressed concerns over the
viability of phase one.
"I think this a great idea," Taylor
County resident George Painter
said. "I'd go five blocks away [to

podium to speak, no one voiced
opposition to phase two.

probably the best idea yet,"
"We're getting ready to throw

Bethea said. "I've received two

"If it was easy, somebody would
have already done it."
Since Thursday's meeting was a
public hearing and not a special
meeting, the commission could not
make a motion and vote on the
issue, but Bethea did ask for a
consensus from the board to have
county staff begin working on both
phases of the project.
"From what I've seen, I like it,"
Commissioner Malcolm Page said.

District foe Florida HiQh here Thursday
The Taylor County High
baseball team will be playing for
the top seed in the upcoming
District 3, 3-A tournament when
Florida High comes to town this
Thursday for a 7 p.m. contest.
The Bulldogs are a perfect 5-0
(11-9 overall) in district play
while Florida High is 4-1 (13-7
overall). The Tallahassee team's
lone district loss came March 16
when the visiting Bulldogs
upended the Seminoles 4-2.
That first game, however,
doesn't matter much right now,
according to first-year TCHS
Coach Kelly Armstrong.
"The tiebreaker goes to overall
record so if Florida High beats us
this Thursday, they get the top
seed in the tournament," he said.
The district tourney is slated to
be played April 25 and 27 in
Jasper. The winner of -this
Thursday's game will play fourth-
seeded Madison while the loser
will play third seed Hamilton
The top two teams from the
district tournament will advance to
the state playoffs with the district

Armstrong credits much of his
team's success this season on a
strong pitching staff as well as
nine seniors on the roster.
His pitching staff includes
Brandon Mock, Miguel Parga,
Derek Miller, Josiah Anderson,
Rusty Walker and Brice, Cade.

In latest assessment
A series of stock assessments
on three of Florida's most
important saltwater fisheries --
snook, redfish and striped mullet -
underwent review and discussion
Thursday by the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC). The FWC routinely
collects and analyzes' data
concerning key marine fisheries
species, and these data provide-
vital information for development
of management regulations.
The assessment for redfish (also
called red drum, red bass and
channel bass) indicates the FWC's
management goal of 30-percent
escapement is on course.
Escapement is the proportion of
fish surviving through age four,
relative to the numberthat would
have survived to that age if there
was no fishery.
The redfish .assessment
estimates escapement rates are 32
percent on Florida's Gulf coast and
34 percent on the Atlantic coast.,

Richard L. Whitfield, Jr. (Abe)
By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
"What is a skink?" the mother-in-law
asked, as we discussed what artillery
would rid the yard of these slinky
lizards which will run and hide in your
house if you leave the door open too
"Come to the front sidewalk," I told
her, for the sun was shining brightly
that day, and skinks love to sunbathe.
From the comfort of my home, we
looked out the front window and I
lamented, "Well, I don't see one right
this minute...' and as soon as those
words left my mouth, a two-and-a-half
foot black snake slithered from the
shrubs to the side walk.
"Aiiiyyyy," she screamed. I, however,
don't scream; I just inhale deeply and
choke myself--an involuntary action
which the husband calls, "sucking all
the oxygen out of the room."
The snake heard both of us and
quickly 'ran for cover.
We ran for cover too--alerting the
husband, calling the son, wondering
where the Florida National Guard was
when you needed them.
"Honey, what kind of snake was that?" .
asked the grandmother as she planned
to never leave the house again.
"I think it's just a common black
snake--the kind' you want around
because they keep all the mean snakes
away," I told her, as if it were a bedtime
"You want him around?" she asked.
"No, no, not me," I said, "but the
husband has convinced me that a black
snake is a good thing to have." And
then I added tersely, "He's your son."
"I think you should kill him," she said.
"Your son?" I asked.
"No, you sorrything. The snake."
"Do you want me to kill him?" the
husband then asked.
"Well, I don't know," I -admitted. "I
haven't given this a lot of thought. I
don't want snakes around my house,
but I'd rather have this one than a
rattlesnake or a moccasin, and if he
chases poisonous snakes away, maybe I
should keep him."
"And he eats lizards," the husband
reminded, which might explain why no
skinks were sunning that day. They
were being digested.
"I guess we shouldn't kill him," I
determined, but it wasn't a happy
decision. "Now I'm going to worry every
time I go to my rosebed, and what if I
pick him up instead of the black hose?"
"Well, I'm not going to worry," said the
grandmother. "I'm not leaving this
house again." I have to admit, the
announcement disturbed me.
"He's not going to bother you," her son
said, while my son made hissing noises
just to keep things interesting.
"Have you ever had a snake in the
house?" the mother-in-law asked.
"No," I shouted back at her, equating
that suggestion to heresy, blasphemy,
terrorism, Communism and downright
treachery. It was inappropriate, even
for a mother-in-law.
Days have passed. I am not afraid of
my yard, but I am mighty careful. I
watch my feet. I suspect the black
snake is there, and I plan on it. I haven't
watered my roses in days so I'm grateful
for- Saturday's rain, even if it was only
15 minutes' worth. Clearly, I will not be
asked to be on the garden club's Tour of
Gardens,. They don't have enough
liability insurance, and I don't have
anything blooming. Or much grass.
Just a few fire ants.
Saturday, when the boys were out of
,tpw. at .a .baseball, tournament, ,I
planine dmy exit through the side door.
of my house. I've got skinks at the back
door and a black-snake at the front.
door. So I went out the side door--ever
-so carefree. That's when something
green whipped its tail away from my
feet and into a nearby row of shrubs,
Again, I sucked all the oxygen--this
time, out of our three acres of land.
Then I closed my eyes to cry when I
realized the folly in that plan. Eyes must
stay open. For 10 minutes, I couldn't
find the wretched thing, until I used my
stealth hunting skills and looked along
the foundation of the house, in the
mulch, against the cedar, behind the
shrubs, near the hose.
If Martha Stewart saw this snake,, she
would dedicate her next garden hose
design to him. He was deep gray and
sage green with racing stripes .in a
bright fern green which extended from
his head:to his tail--a good two feet. He
had a small head which I know to be a
good sign (probably not poisonous); no
head, however, is a better sign (probably
dead) but I wasn't getting close enough
to kill him.
Since the boys were three hours away,
I called them on the phone. What an
exercise in futility. Both of them
recognized the snake as I described him
and agreed that I was in no danger,
How convenient for them.
Why didn't I feel any better?
I found a piece of concrete and sat
upon it, thinking great thoughts. I
believe concrete jungles are highly
underrated. What's so wrong with
concrete? It's dependable. It's
unattractive to wildlife. I've never heard
of snake sightings in penthouse gardens
or Times Square. Yes, clearly, we
should all pour more concrete.
,I realized that, at the moment, the joys.
of country living had temporarily lost
their charm. If there's a Sexual Predator
List, shouldn't there be a Snake List?
Shouldn't they be required to register.
Shouldn't law enforcement officers get
I had a stiff Coca-Cola and decided
against watering my roses. I just wasn't
up to it. A couple of cardinals flew by
to remind me of the happiness they
bring and I mustered up all my courage
for a walk. Right now, the snakes live at
my house...at my pleasure. One more
incident like this, and you're going to
hear-tell of a mad woman on the north
side of town who shot out all the
windows in her house, three of her toes,
and bombed the front yard, all because
of two harmless snakes.
