Saturday's saltwater tournament. Both won

Optimists 'reel in' winners!

Staff writer
Fishing tournaments are not
known for their photo finishe-..
However, for one winner in the
15th annual Perry Optimist -Club
Saltwater Fishing Tournament,
Saturday's classic was just that--a
race against the clock to beat the, 4
p.m. weigh-in deadline.
Bobby Joe Wood of Perry was
fishing at one of his favorite'Gulf
spots off the Econfina River when
he landed what he felt was surely a
"money fish" around 3 p.m. Not
even taking the time to take the fish
off the hook, he snipped the line,
tossed the monster trout into a

cooler and headed for shore. From
here, it was a race to the .weigh-in
'station at Keaton Beach before the
cut-off time. .
uckil1 for Wood,. he made it
with a few minutes to spare and
saw his name go on the board as
the leader in the trout division.
His 6.5-pound keeper handily
earned him $1,500 as the first place
Close on his heels was second
place finisher Michael Wiles, also
of Perry, who netted a 5.40-pouind
trout and took home the $750
prize. Third place in the trout
division was Edward Thomas, with
a 4.85-pound fish. He pocketed

$250. ,
In the grouper division, Keith
Wilkes won first place and $1,500
ax ith a 15 70-pound keeper. Second
place, and $500, was won by
Richard Padgett with a 13.75
grouper; rounding out the top three
was Charles Norwood, who turned
in a 12.95-pounder.
Bruce Wiley won first place in
the red fish category with a 6.95-':
pound catch while Glenn Wiggins
left the competition behind in the'
cobia category with a 46.55-pound
Clay Toole took home first place

TCSO dive team recovers

body in Suwannee River

A full house is expected for the first Perry/Taylor County
Chamber of Commerce Casino Night fund-raiser, which will be
held Friday at the Perry Elks Lodge. Tickets are $25 and
include $500 in playing chips. Above, Chamber President
Sandy Beach-Manning and Director Dawn Taylor show off their
cards. "We will see you at the poker table!"

The Taylor County Sheriffs
Office Dive Team. was once again
dispatched to search for a drowned
swimmer who lost his life in the
Suwannee River Saturday.
According to a report from, the
Suwannee County Sheriffs. Office'
(SCSO), Miguel Juan Ramos, 25,
and friends. 'were at Suwannee
Springs Saturday, when Ramos and
a friend decided to swim across the
river to the Hamilton County side.
About halfway across, Ramos
"appeared to be having trouble
staying above. the water," said
SCSO Dep. Samuel St. John.
"There was another Hispanic male
beside him, attempting to help
Ramos to shore."
Witnesses at the scene said that
Ramos went underwater, ,but his
friend, Rolando Pascul, grabbed
him by the hair and was trying to
pull him toward the shore.
Two other swimmers jumped
into the water to assist, "but before
they were able to get to Ramos, his
friend had to let go before he went
under the water himself."
Unsuccessful attempts were'
made to locate the victim by.
SCSO, which then called the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC).
They, too, were unsuccessful.
Taylor County Sheriffs Office
Cpt. Audie Towles said he was
contacted around 8 p.m. Saturday,
but officials with the case said it
would be best if the TCSO Dive
Team began searching early the
next morning.
Team members Dep. Mark
Hershberger, Sgt. Buddy Lee and
Towles arrived at the scene Sunday

morning, meeting with Suwannee years ago, but had since bro]

in Dixie County

Doctors' Memorial Hospital (DMH) is examining the possibility of
establishing a free-standing emergency department in Dixie County.
According to DMH CEO Rick Brown, he made a presentation earlier
this year to Dixie County Commissioners about the idea, which they
"endorsed wholeheartedly."
The Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA)--the state
regulatory agency which oversees hospitals--approved a freestanding
emergency department in Ocala for Munroe Regional Medical Center. A
second department was approved in 2003, after which the state placed a
moratorium on such departments to give legislators and regulatory officials
time to examine the issue.
AHCA released a report in December, 2004, in which it reccomdended
legislators "allow the development of freestanding emergency
departments" and "'direct the agency to develop rules designating that the
regulatory criteria for onsite emergency departments also apply to offsite
freestanding emergency departments."
At the time of the report,' in addition to Florida's two facilities,
freestanding emergency departments could be found in Texas, California,
Virginia, South Carolina and Delaware. Additional departments were also
under development in North Carolina, Kansas, Arizona and Washington.:
According to Brown, there is legislation currently being proposed which
would end the moratorium. He estimated that in the "best case scenario" if
the legislation passes, AHCA would take six months to a year to develop
the necessary regulations.
"They would most likely limit it to medically underserved areas. Dixie
County definitely qualifies," he said.

Land-use changes approved

Two small-scale land use
amendments which have been part
of a months-long disagreement
between the county and the state's
Department of Community Affairs
were approved last week by the
county commission.
The first amendment, an
application by Kenneth B.
Hutchins, amends the future land
use classification from agricultural
rural residential to mixed-use
urban development on a parcel
containing 9.95 acres, more or less.
The second was 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.
Hutchins, whose amendment
was first at the meeting,
approached the podium to speak;,
but Commission Chairman Daryll
Gunter asked hiti towait to begin
his presentation. Instead, Gunter
asked the audience if there was
anyone who wished to speak out
against approving the amendment.
When no one spoke up,
Commissioner Jack Brown offered
a motion to approve the
amendment., Commissioner Clay
Bethea seconded and the measure
passed 4-0. Commissioner Pat
Patterson was not present due to an
illness in the family.
Gunter asked the same question
for the Lindsey Island amendment


ban passed

in other cities

Continued from page 1
The South Florida city of Miami
Beach was the first municipality or
county in the state to enact such an
ordinance. Due to its geography--a
seven-mile strip along the coast
with more than a dozen schools
and 35. parks--the ordinance made
almost the entire city off-limits.
A number of other cities and
a~ssimi- FJordja have since,
passed similar ordinances.


and again no one objected. Brown
again made a motion to approve,
seconded by Bethea, which passed
The two amendments have been
part of a disagreement between the
county and DCA over whether
amendments involving mixed-use
urban development should be
considered regular amendments or
small-scale 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.
"Given that the current future
land use category within the
proposed future land use category
allows one unit per acre and the
proposed future land use category
(mixed used uiban development)
allows over 10 units per acre, the
amendment cannot be processed as
a small scale amendment,"
Martinson said.
Ehrbar then sent an e-mail to
county staff telling them of DCA's
opinion. The commission then
decided to advertise the two
applications as regular
amendments, even though they
were under the usual 10 acre
, After receiving a letter from
Hutchins, commissioners
discussed the issue again at their

Let a professional help!
(850) 838-6450 ,


March 21 meeting, where in a 4-0
vote, they decided to send a letter
to DCA disagreeing with the
"It's time we take a stand and
continue to function as a county
government according to our comp
plan and challenge this
administrative ruling," Brown said
at that meeting.
At its April 3 meeting, the
commission was to hold public
hearings on the two amendments-
which at that time were classified
as regular amendments. They
instead agreed to readvertise the
amendments as small scale
amendments, resulting in the
public hearings held last week.
Last week's approval, however,
does not end all of the uncertainty
for the amendments.
DCA recently found part of the
county's response to the
Objections, Recommendations'and
Comments (ORC) Report "not in
The issue in dispute arose from
another disagreement between
DCA and county staff, this one
over differing interpretations of
allowable buiilding densities on
land designated "coastal high
hazard area" (CHHA) in the comp
According to Ehrbar,
amendments directly affected by
the policy in question could be on
hold until the "not in compliance"
finding is resolved. This could
potentially affect any land use
changes for land in the CHHA,
including both the Hutchins and
Lindsey Island applications.
The county commission has
plans to meet with DCA in the near-
future to discuss the issue.

Taylor County Traveling Soccer
"Twenty girls have devoted
themselves to getting better by
playing in a spring league that
plays its games in Tallahassee on
Saturday mornings--sometimes as
early as eight. in the morning.

something like this in the off-
season, you are falling behind.
They have seen the benefits of
working hard as this is the second
season they have done this and
their record of.13-1 in the school
season showed their hard work,"
Brewer said.
Recently, the girls had the
opportunity to share practice
sessions with an Florida State
University (FSU) women's soccer
assistant coach. Also, the girls
got to attend a camp with FSU
players and the head coach of the
Lady Seminoles which was held
on the FSU game field. "That
was a really neat experience for the.

girls. To work with that quality
of players and coaches was
something that doesn't happen
everyday. Two of the players the
girls worked with were All-
American India.Trotter, who was
just named to the national team,
and Viola Brecht, who plays for
the German national team when
not in school.

"I am very proud of what these
girls have done and it is amazing
how far they have come the last
couple of years. I feel like a proud
daddy bragging on them but they
deserve it," Brewer said.

Dear Family and Friends,

\ This week marks my first year in my new career in Real Estate. Before
beginning this career, I had retired from the workforce when I moved to
Taylor County with my family in' 1999. But, our lives are seasons and
seasons mean change.

In Maryland, where I lived all my life prior to moving to Florida, I was a
dental hygienist (RDH)for 20.years. For 19 of those 20 years, I worked for
the.same dentist. I had a lot of trust and respect for the man I worked for,
enjoyed my co-workers and, especially, enjoyed my patients. The practice
began with me working only two days a week, and in 1999, there were 3
RDH's. I saw what integrity and hard work can accomplish.

Our move here was a new season. It has been a blessing to have been a'
full-time homemaker, a volunteer at First Baptist Church, and spend blessed
time with my family and friends. Last year, with just one child at home, I
had toyed with the idea of getting a job outside of the home again. I love,
people and service is my heart, so I wanted to find something that would
use these callings. Through a variety of circumstances, a career in real
estate became real! God has placed me in a great place at Coldwell Banker
Kelly & Kelly Properties (CBKK). I am learning more each day and so much
of real estate is SERVICE. My desire is to be the best realtor possible to
serve those God places in my path.

If you, any family or friends have any real estate needs, I would be honored
to serve them. Your referralsare the heart of my business. They are also
the best compliment! Any comments, questions or advice are very rrmuch
appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. I pray that
what I have to offer will be to God's Glt-'y.

In His Service,

7432 S. Red Padgett Road
Perry, FL 32348

No. 1
By Jeff Himmel
A few years ago I started noticing bracelets, t-shirts,
and bumper stickers that simply read, "WWJD." Today
they're everywhere. The letters stand for a question:
"What would Jesus do?"

It's a noble question. Christians, by definition, are to
be like Jesus (see Romans 8:29). If the Son of God has
first place in our hearts and actions, we'll frequently find
ourselves asking, "What would Jesus do?" What would
Jesus do if He faced this temptation? What would Jesus
do with this opportunity? What would Jesus do ii
response to this challenge? What would Jesus do if He
were in my shoes?

God calls on us to imitate Jesus' perfect example (see
1 Peter 2:21 1 Corinthians 11:1). So whenever we ask,
"What would Jesus do?" we're also askirig,"What would
,Jesus want me to do?" If \% e don't truthfully answer the
first question. %ve won't have a clue about the second.
This, I think, is where we often mess up: we don't think
seriously about what Jesus would do, because deep down
we fear that it's not what we would do. I think about that
when I see a WWJD bum per sticker on a car, then notice
that the driver is screaming obscenities at someone who
cut him off in traffic.

What would Jesus do? How we arrive at the answer..
to that question is just as important as asking it. It's pretty-
easy to let "What would Jesus do?" change into "What
would Ilike to imagine Jesus doing?" or even "What do
I wish I could get Jesus to do?" I can form an inaccurate
picture of Christ that's based on my own preferences'
and prejudices. Again, it does no good to ask the question
if I won't answer it truthfully. =

So how can I know what Jesus would do? How can
anyone know? The answer is to look at whatH-le actually
did. And what He said. And what His chosen apostles
did and said by His authority. Those things are recorded
for us in the New Testament. If the question is: "What4"
would Jesus do?" we must look for the answer in that
divinely revealed record. Anything else is just guesswork.
"For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he should
instruct Him" (1 Corinthians 2:16)? When we learn what
Christ and His apostles did and said, we then must apply
their teachings and examples to our own lives.

* A word of caution: What Jesus did made HMi
unpopular. His actions and words sometimes shocked,
offended, and angered people. As He said, "the light has
come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather
than the light; for their deeds were evil" (John 3:19). It
follows that people who imitate Jesus will often seem
out of step and out of touch. As in Jesus' day, those who
are comfortable in' sin will resent those who, by word
and example, beckon then to leave it.

Watch for future essays that will ask, "What would
Jesus do?" in various areas of life. If you're a follower of
Christ, we hope you'll be challenged and encouraged to
be more like Him evefy day. If you're not a follower of
Christ, or if you don't know where you stand, we hope
you'll be challenged to think seriously about how very
different Jesus was and is, about how different He calls
us to be, and about the difference He will make in your

B-1 Taco Times May 10, 200

Writer upset over

to alleged drunker

Dear Editor:
I am writing to you all as a
concerned citizen that happened to
pass through Perry late one night.
My wife, eight-month old baby and
myself were on Highway 98
heading west around 12:30 a.m.
back to Tampa after a family
About 12-15 miles outside of
Perry, we witnessed a driver in his
pickup pulling his fifth wheel,
swerving all over the road (both
sides). In addition to being all over
the road, he put the truck in the
ditch (for lack of a better term) a
couple of times. He had his 'friend
following behind him so as to
make certain he would be safe. I
noticed the hazard he was causing
and tried to go around him. After
many times, I finally got by. He
kept swerving over--I don't think
on purpose, I think because he was
To prevent him from hurting
someone else (or himself), I called

911. The dispatcher said she would
have someone look into it. I stayed
in front of the two vehicles and
drove slowly to make certain
nothing bad would happen. As we
pulled into town, we were greeted
by two officers. The officers
followed this parade from the edge
of town on 98 to the McDonald's
on 19. I found it odd that it was a
35 mph zone and these guys were
crawling along about 10-15 mph.
The officers stayed behind them
until they reached McDonald's
where the two vehicles pulled in.
The two officers then turned
around and did absolutely nothing!
I was confused as to how these
individuals were not at least
stopped and questioned for what
went on prior to entering Perry. I
was so confused I called the police
department--the dispatcher said
that the officer told her that
because they were not weaving
while they were being followed, he
was not going to do anything. She


i driving
then put the officer through to me.
The officer got defensive with me
immediately and then asked me
what I did for a living. He said that
he didn't call my place of
employment and complain about
my work ethic, I shouldn't do that
to him. Isn't he employed by the
people of Florida? Isn't he
employed to protect and serve?
Where the heck was the officer
when my family and I were almost
run off the road by a drunk driver
on his watch?
He said I didn't have a say in
what he did, because I wasn't a
taxpayer in this town or county!
Don't believe me? Listen to the
tape. The officer was taping the
entire conversation.
Was there a crime committed?
Absolutely! But it wasn't the drunk
driver who is polluting your
streets, it's your local law
enforcement, polluting your entire

Letters to the Editor

Tax Aide program refunds exceeded $312,000

Dear Editor:
Tax season is over!
Federal tax refunds sent directly
to taxpayers in Taylor County
exceeded $312,000 this year in the
Free Tax Aide Program in Periy
and Steinhatchee.
This free E-filing program has
grown in the past few years and
exceeded all numbers this year due
to the efforts of a number of local
residents who give of their time
and resources.
Thank you to Clay Olson,.Peggy
and Barbara of the Taylor County
Extension Office who donated

training space and equipment.
Another thank you goes to Pamela
Grigg and her staff at the Perry
Library. They donate space and
resources for our use every year
and are always willing to help in
any way they can.
For several years, Angela and
Perry Newspapers have been
instrumental in passing out the
word of the program to residents.
Approximately 500 taxpayers used
the service in Taylor County this
year. Thanks also go out to WPRY
and WNFK for their public service
announcements of the program.

Without our dedicated
volunteers who donate their time
every week during tax season to
serve the people of Taylor County,
the program would not be possible.
If you see them on the street, give
them a "thank you" for helping:

Holly Bankey, William Monroe,
Bonnie Peters, Millie Meadows,
Patricia Lindsey, Betty Mauldin,

'Taylor County has enough pollution'

Midweek Muddle

Dear Editor:
I don't want to be forced against
my will to live in a town with a
coal plant that spews mercury and
other pollution. Taylor County has
enough pollution and sickness.
How many people do you know
with cancer?
I am from Michigan. I know first
hand what it's like to live in an area
polluted' by coal-burning ) plants
and factories. When I go back
home, I see all the dirty buildings
and smog. All coal plants pollute.
And do we want that here?
When I first came to Florida, I
lived in Miami Beach and was so.
amazed by how clean everything
was compared to the cities in .the
north where they used coal for
industry and for heating homes.
Cancer, among other diseases,
was rampant all around the Great

Lakes because the heavy industry
situated right on the banks dump
their waste into'the Great Lakes. A'
few years back, "60 Minutes" did a
documentary on the pollution of
the Great 'Lakes and they said
many people were dying of cancer
and all kinds of diseases.
Did you know that the, Great
Lakes are so filled with mercury
that \ou can't eat but four fish a
year? Is that what we want here?
Many fish are unsafe in our area
because of mercury. The coal plant
\would only worsen ,the problem,
and :it would definitely hurt the
tourist industry, because people
come here to fish. Dp our leaders
want a situation where we can't
safely eat our fish and shellfish?
When we first came here; we lived
in Steinhatchee and I know it
would hurt that community and the

Heroines congratulate winner

Dear Editor:
The Heroines of the Templars
Crusade would like to congratulate
Varian "Bear" Dunnell for winning

To help you understand how
devastating 'coal pollution is on
your health, let me tell you about
my mother. She was in perfect
health when she moved from
Missouri to Bay City, Mich., and
was very active. She was a big
water drinker and her water source
originated from Lake Huron which
is full of mercury. Her, health
rapidly deteriorated and she died of
We know that coal pollution
causes very serious health
problems and' many .deaths each

that are released into the air when it
is burned.
The power company is deceiving
the public. They are counting on
the people not being informed on
coal plants. They are not going to
tell you the truth because they want
to move their pollution to our

would have a more enlightened

who knew the Perry Garden Club was
so powerful?
Sunday afternoon, the club's first
Tour of Yards,& Gardens was scheduled
to begin at 2 p.m., allowing three hours
for gardeners and admirers alike to
wander down paths oohing and ahhing
over blooms and foliage.
that's when the gray clouds gathered
"Oh, I hope it doesn't rain out the
tour," said one who had worked so hard.
"But we really need rain," said another.
gardener who has been dragging water'
hoses all over her yard for two months.
"Yes, we do need rain desperately, and
it can rain all night--into tomorrow and
through Tuesday if it wants to, but it'
really can't rain today until 5 p.m.," said
the first voice in this conversation, as
she looked toward the heavens and
begged, "Please, please....not until after
Tour-goers were easily distracted 'at
the Perry Garden Center by a
centerpiece of cakes which looked like a
fountain of confection: German
chocolate cake on a pedestal, white
-chocolate cake with white chocolate
icing, cheesecake with cherry topping,
Black Forest cake, and other baked
temptations which overflowed with
,sugar and tantalized the senses.
"Should we eat, or should we tour?"
was the "To be or not to be?" question of
the day. Tour-goers divided into two
camps: those who ate before the tour,
and those who returned for sweet treats
following the tour, but everybody
partook and sighed with satisfaction.
The homes of Mr. and Mrs. Charles T.
Maultsby, Mr. and Mrs. Robert A. Bell,
Dr. and Mrs. Miles Nelson, and Dr. and
Mrs, Miles Owens were featured on the
Sunday stroll.
"I've been working around the clock
just to keep everything alive," said Bell,
whose "everything" looks considerably
.better tha.-yours and mine. There were
lilies 'and' hydrangeas, ferns' irn-:

native trees' and shrubs, garden:
.ornaments and a well-stocked potting"'
The Maultsbys lured visitors with a
carpet of green grass which was
trimmed with colorful impatiens and
led to an inviting pool garden. The
Nelsons displayed their row of
illuminated palm trees, magnificent
fountain and a sea of irises.
At the Owens' residence, visitors
admired antique roses, lilies, hibiscus
and jasmine in abundance, while Perry
Garden Cub members directed traffic,
discouraged pilfering and argued over
the scientific name for bottle brush.
Then at 5, everyone looked toward the
heavens again, gave thanks and grabbed
their umbrellas.
I ask again,. "Who knew the Perry
Garden Club was so powerful?"
The rain came in divine proportions--
in the time frame they allotted-- and left
puddles standing on parched earth.
The dog and I walked the block at
dusk to look at this valuable commodity
we call rain. The dog all but danced
through the collected water--like that
elephant on the popular commercial
who frolics to the strains of "Singing in
the Rain."
The trees were green again--not
limerock white. The birds waited until
the dog was out of sight, and then they
used the puddles for a long-awaited
And then I heard it, a giant slurp and
* sigh from the earth. The puddles
disappeared, the sun went to bed, and
the rest of the earth was refreshed. :
Indians once danced for rain; early
settlers in this country participated iri

When all they really have to do is call
the Perry Garden Club.

Taylor seniors celebrate

'Older Americans Month'

The Taylor Senior Citizen.s
Center will join organizations
' across the nation this month in
celebration of Older Americans
Month, a national event. Taylor
seniors will celebrate with special
events throughout May.
When Older Americans Month
was established in 1963, only 17
million living Americans had
reached their 65th birthdays.
About a third of older Americans
lived in poverty and there were few
programs to meet their needs.
Interest in older Americans and
their concerns was growing,
however. In April of 1963,
President John, F. Kennedy's
meeting with the National
Council of Senior Citizens served
as a prelude to designating May as
"Senior Citizens Month."
Thanks to President Jimmy
Carter's 1980 designation, what
was once called Senior Citizens
Month, is now called "Older
Americans Month," and has
become a tradition.
For more information on


services offered by the Taylor
Senior Citizens Center, please call
584-4924. The center is open

Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-5
p.m. and is located at 800 West
Ash Street in Perry.

Letters to the Editor

'Should I have to search

for a new place to live?'

Continued from page 1
would not knowingly harm others.
Ignorance is no excuse for doing
things that hurt other people.
Years ago, people brought in
heavily polluting industries
because they didn't know better.
Now states like Idaho, Illinois,
California and Texas understand
the danger of coal pollution and are
seeking alternatives. Idaho
recently banned coal plants. When
you read that places in the U.S. and
Canada have banned coal plants
does that give.you.a clue?
From my personal experience
working in a hospital, I know the
poor souls who have to work in
coal plants and other polluting
industries suffer a high rate of
serious illnesses. I saw many with
respiratory illnesses, cancer,
including black lung disease.
These people often .die early,
leaving their families to fend for
themselves, making it very hard
for the widows and children to
survive on their own. What is the
point of more jobs if more people
are going to die? It doesn't make
any sense.
I'm glad many. conservative
church leaders and others are now
speaking out and forming. groups
to fight these power plants that are
ruining our health and
environment. At least they are
aware of the seriousness of the
problems of sickness and global
warming caused by coal plants.
-Because of global warming,'we are
going to see more disasters like
Hurricane Katrina as well as floods
and droughts that cause death and
starvation. If we do not learn to be
good stewards of God's earth, we
will reap the consequences..
- -Why should I have to search for
a new place to live? Our county
commissioner told me he was
elected to make our decisions. He'
was not a bit interested in what I

had to say. I thought he was elected
to be a public servant. At least
when he was running for that
office, he claimed he would be
there for the people. It is shameful
that we can't know more about
these people before we elect them
to public office.
I want to appeal to the common
sense of the people of this
community and to 'those in
authority to stop and think about
what you are doing to affect our
lives and our environment. The
decisions you are now making will
now affect generations of people,
our children and grandchildren.
Most of us, including those we
elected, claim to be Christians. If
we are Christians, we need to
practice brotherly love and show
real concern for our fellow man.
Some of the people I see sitting in
church are willing to bring in a
plant that will do harm to people.
You can't really say you are a
Christian if you are willing to do
harm to your brother.
The Bible says we are to be our
brother's keeper. Our leaders
should not just be about greed or
personal gain. They were elected to
be there for the people and to help
our community grow in a healthy
way. They should not be taken in
by anyone who comes down the
road offering a deal that is too good
to be true, especially when it's a
deal that our counties have rejected
as too polluting. I would never vote
for or re-elect anyone who had any
part in bringing in a coal plant and
neither would my friends and
I am reminded of old Scrooge.
Let's pray that our leaders, like
Scrooge, will have an awakening.
It is never too late.
' Remember what the Bible says,
"What does it profit a man if he
gains the whole world and loses his

Tournament raises

$4,500 for Perry girl

Some $4,500 was raised during
a benefit softball tournament held
for Jordan McDonald, the four-
year-old Perry girl who underwent
brain surgery Dec. 29 to remove a
malignant tumor.
Organized by her uncle, Kyle
Johnson, his wife, Kasey, and
friends Clifford and Keri- Bean,
Ashley and Sara Mock, and Danny
and Sarah Bayes, the tournament
was held Feb. 18--which turned
out to be a 'very cold and rainy


Jordan McDonald

However, the weather didn't
dampen the spirits of the teams
from across Florida and Georgia,
who rated the event
"a hit!"
Together with donations and
entry fees, Johnson was able to
present his sister and brother-in-
law, Monica and Randy
McDonald, with a check' in the
amount of $4,500.
"A community came, together,
and these local businesses helped
to make this possible: Andrews
Drugs, Custom Design Industries,
Goodman's BBQ, Ina Padgett's
State, Farm, Jack's Boats. &
Trailers, Joe P. Burns Funeral
Home, Lance Foods, Laurie's
Cutting Comer, Madison County
Recreation: Department, Pepsi
Bottling Company, Perry
Insurance Agency, Photos, Frames
& Trophies!, Razor's Edge, South
House Home Furnishings, Sports
Connection of Live Oak, The Sign
Shop. Thomas Chevrolet-Buick-
Pontiac, Inc., Timberland Ford,
United Welding Services, Winn

Dixie and Yarbrough Tire,".
Johnson said.
According to her family, Jordan
left Shands Hospital in Gainesville
at the end of January for a one-
month stay in Jacksonville at
Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital.
She is back in, Gainesville
undergoing radiation treatments
and will receive additional therapy
throughout the summer.
"She has made a 'lot of progress,
but still has a long way to go. We
would like to thank everyone for
their prayers, cards, donations and
continued support."
A fishing tournament will be
held Saturday, May 27, on Jordan's
behalf. Additional information on
the tournament is available pn-line
at www.keatonbeachmarina.com.
Jordan was diagnosed with the
tumor the day after Christmas,
Dec. 26. Her father, Randy
McDonald is an officer with the
Florida Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC);
her mother, Monica, is a
kindergarten, teacher at Perry
Primary School.

The Department will issue the permit with
the attached conditions unless a timely
petition for an administrative hearing is
filed under Section 120.569 and 120.57,,
Florida Statutes, within fourteen days of'
receipt of notice. The procedures for
petitioning for a hearing are set forth
below. \
A person whose substantial interests are
affected by the Department's
proposed permitting decision may
petition for an administrative
proceeding (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The
petition must contain the information set
forth below and must be filed (received
by the clerk) in the Office of General
Counsel 'of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard. Mail Station
35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.
Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida
Administrative Code, a person may
request enlargement of the time for filing
a petition for an administrative hearing.
The request must be filed (received by
the clerk) in the Office of General
Counsel before the end of the time
period for filing a petition for an
administrative hearing.
Petitions filed by any persons other than
those entitled to written notice under
Section 120.60(3),'Florida Statutes, must
be filed within fourteen days of
publication of the notice or within
fourteen days of receipt of the written
notice, whichever occurs first. Under
Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes,
however, any person who asked the
Department for 'notice of 'agency
action may file a petition within fourteen
days of receipt of such notice,
regardless of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the
petition to the applicant at the address
indicated above at the time of filing. The
failure of any person to file a petition or
request for enlargement of time within
fourteen days of receipt of notice shall
constitute a waiver of that person's right
to. request an administrative
determination (hearing) under Sections
1120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any
subsequent intervention (in a
proceeding initiated by another party)
will be only at the discretion of the
presiding officer upon the filing of a
motiorn in compliance with Rule 28-
106.205, Florida Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts
on which- the Department's action is
based must contain the following



Dries in 3-4 hours -

(584-2532) ,'

(o)Tne name, address, and telephone
number of each Petitioner; the name,
ndoress, and telephone number of the
per-ioner's representative, if any, the
Department permit identification
number and The county in which the
subject matter or activity is located;
(b)A s'aTemenT of how and when each
petiioner received notice of the
Department action;
(c)A statement of how each petitioner's
substantiol interests are affected by ihe
Department action,
(d)A statement of all disputed issues of
materiol fact. If there are none, the
petition must so indicate;
(e)A statemenT of facts rhat the
petitioner contends warrant reversal or
modification of the Department action;
(f)A concise statement of the ultimate
facts alleged, as well as the rules and
statutes which entitle the petitioner to
relief; and
(g)A statement of the relief sought by
the petitioner, stating precisely the
action that the petitioner wants the
Department to take.
Because the administrative hearing
process is designed to formulate final
agency action, the filing of a petition
means that the Department's final action
may be different from the position taken
by it in this notice. Persons whose
substantial interests will be affected by
any such final decision of the
Department have the right to petition to
become a party to the proceeding, in
accordance with the requirements set
forth above.
In addition to requesting an
administrative hearing, any petitioner
may elect to pursue mediation. The
election may be accomplished by filing
with the Department a mediation
agreement with oil parties to the
proceeding (i.e., the applicant, -the
Department, and any person who has
filed a timely and sufficient petition for a
hearing). The agreement must contain
all the information required by Rule 28-
106.404, Florida Administrative Code.
The agreement must be received by
the clerk in the Office of General
Counsel of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station
'35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000,
within ten days after the deadline for
filing a petition, as set forth above.
Choosing mediation will not adversely
affect the right to a hearing if mediation
does not result in a settlement.
As provided in Section 120.573, Florida
Statutes, the timely agreement of all
parties to mediate will toll the. time
limitations imposed by Sections 120.569
and 120,57, Floriia Statutes, for holding
an administrative hearing and issuing a
final order,. Unless otherwise agreed by
Sthe parties, the mediation must be
concluded within sixty days of the
execution of the agreement.. If
mediation results in settlement of the
administrative dispute, the Department
must enter a final order incorporating
the agreement of the parties. Persons
seeking to protect their substantial
interests that would be affected by such
a modified final decision must file their
petitions within fourteen days of receipt
of this notice, or they shall be deemed
to have waived their right to a
proceeding under Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes. If mediation
terminates without settlement of the
dispute, the Department shall notify all
parties in writing that the administrative
hearing processes under Sections
