Tuesday, June 6, marked Ihe 62nd
anniversary of Operation Overlord,
code-named D-Day, the Allied
invasion of northem France during
World War II.
Supreme Allied Commander
General Dwight D. Eisenhower gave
the go-ahead for this, the largest
amphibious military operation in
history.
' By daybreak, 18,000 British and
American parachutists were already
on the ground. At 6:30 a.m., American
troops came ashore at Utah and
Omaha beaches. At Omaha, the U.S.
First Division battled high seas, mist,
mines, burning vehicles and German
coastal batteries, including an elite
infantry division, which spewed heavy
fire. Many wounded Americans
.ultimately drowned in the high tide.
* Despite the German resistance,
Allied casualties overall were relatively
light. The United States and Britain
each lost about 1,000 men, and
Canada 355. Before the day was over,
155,000 Allied troops would be in
Normandy.
Taylor County son (the late) Tillman
Clark was among those who landed
on Omaha Beach that fateful day, the
late William Lee was also part of the
first wave of soldiers to hit the beach,
landing June. 9...D-Day plus 3.

Shouting match erupts



at commission meeting


Magnolia Bay development
degenerated into a veritable
shouting match at Monday's
county commission meeting after a
speaker's comments drew the ire of
commissioners and county staff.
The issue at hand ,was a
recommendation from County
Administrator Buddy Humphries
that a committee,be established to
negotiate with the developers of
the project.
The discussions began more than
four hours into an unusually long
commission meeting.
"A development of this size is

usually handle (in the technical
review committee)," Humphries
said.
Local resident George Stamos
',then asked to speak.
"The developer has asked for a
two-mile long channel through, the
Big Bend Seagrass Preserve," he
said. "He wants to excavate 500
acres of wetlands along our coast,
all of which are protected not only
by the state, but they're protected
federally.
"What we're doing here is aiding
and abetting in my opinion by
* appointing 'county staff to help the
developer to get around those laws.
"Those laws were established--"
he began, but was quickly
interrupted by Danny Griner with'
the County Building and Planning
Department, Humphries and
several commissioners.,
"That was totally uncalled for,"
Griner said.
"Yeah, that was uncalled for,"
Humphries said.


"I don't have to listen to it,"
Griner said, before standing up and
leaving the board room.
"You stood up here and called us
thieves last time you were here,"
'Commissioner Clay Bethtea said.
"Let me say--" Starros said.
"No George, hang on!" Bethea
said.
The two attempted to talk over
each other before Commission
Chairman Daryll Gunter used his
gavel in an attempt to regain
control of the meeting.
"Can't I just talk?" Stamos said.
"George, you can talk," Gunter
said, "but if you continue to insult
this board and the staff, .I will have
you escorted from the building."
"No you won't," Stamos said.
"Oh yes I will," Gunter said.

Stamos said.

for a new county administrator, it
would be best to wait until the new:
commission was in place before a
final hiring was done.
Humphries' was named county:

affiliations include: chairman,

County Administrator Buddy
Humphries has announced that he
will not renew his employment
contract with the county, which is
set to expire in September.
In a letter dated June 1 and
addressed to the Taylor County
commissioners, Humphries said, "I
have enjoyed my tenure with the
county. It has been a pleasure
- working with the Board of County
Commissioners and the citizens of
Taylor County."
According to his contract, the
agreement would have been
renewed automatically unless
either he or the county gave written
notice at least 90 days prior to the
erd of the term.


"In the event the board
determines my services are needed
for an additional length of time, I
am open to contract negotiations,
but not to exceed Dec. 31."
At Mondas s commission
meeting, commissioners agreed to
add Humphries' contract to the
next meeting's agenda hoping to
extend his services until at least
past the November election.
Since commissioners Daryll
Gunter and Jack Brown have both
announced they will not be seeking
re-election, there will be two new
commissioners on the board
following the election.
Commissioners agreed that

the new project design.
The Sheffields and St. Laurents
are joined by investors Van Ness R.
Butler, his son Van Ness R. Butler
III and Franklin (Trip) Snelson III.
The Butlers, from Walton
County, have developed several
subdivisions in that area and are
excited about being involved in the
project here.
"We believe folks have gotten
tired of dodging hurricanes plus
homes in the coastal areas have
become prohibitively expensive,"
the elder Butler said.
The developers have already
located and plan to utilize some of
the historical items on the site.
"We have already reclaimed and
cleaned 150,000 individual bricks
from the original structures that
will be incorporated into the
design. Concrete is being
reclaimed from existing
foundations and will be crushed
and used for substrate and
walkways. We plan to transplant
trees from heavily wooded areas to
, civic green spaces," said William
St. Laurent.
Sheffield said the old water
tower located on the site will be
preserved. It is believed to be one
of the oldest such structures in the
state, he said*.
Cypress timber, milled at the site
decades ago, will also be included
in the design.
"We are hauling out 300,000
board feet of heart cypress thaf has
been stored in the log pond on the
property since' the mill closed in
the mid 1950s. To explain just how
much lumber that is, imagine a
board one inch thick, one foot wide
laid end to end stretching from
Perry to Tallahassee," St. Laurent
said.
A two-day public workshop is
being planned for October to give
members of the community the
opportunity to review and
provide feedback on the /master
plan.

commission," Gunter said.
"Then why don't you just listen
and then you can make a
decision?" Stamos asked.
"You can state your point, but do
not impugn the integrity of our
staff or this commission again,",
Gunter said.
"That is my opinion," Stamos
said.
"The board has not voted on this
item," Commissioner Pat Patterson
said.
' "Why do you try to get me
upset?" Stamos asked.
: "You just had staff members
walk out because you insulted
them and you're insulting this
board," Gunter said.
"I'm going to tell you the facts,"
Stamos said.
* "Facts or an opinion George?"
Gunter asked.
Stamos then referred to a June 5
St. Petersburg Time article which
stated that Magnolia Bay developer
Chuck Olson in 1993 pleaded no
.contest to felony charges of
conspiracy to traffic in cocaine and
.attempted cocaine trafficking.
Gunter again used his gavel.
"George, I would ask you to
stick to the issue and to not attack
anyone else's, character because


yours has never, in my knowledge,
been attacked in this board room,"
Gunter said.
"He's not on trial here," Bethea
said.
"I'm not putting him on trial,"
Stamos said.
"Why are you attacking him
personally?" Bethea asked.
"I didn't do it, the St. Petersburg
Times did."
"Well, fine. Leave it at the St.
Pete Times," Gunter said.
"I'm just trying to state my
opinion. That's all I'm trying to
do," Stamos said.
"You can state your opinion
without making all of
the inflammatory remarks,"
Commissioner Jack Brown said.
"About aiding and abetting? Is
that inflammatory?"
"Yes it is," Brown said.
"Well, then people are very
sensitive,"' Stamos said.
He then questioned using county
staff to work with a developer,
suggesting instead that the
developer work up a plan.
Bethea then described a meeting
he attended recently where the
topic of negotiating with
developers was covered in a three-
hour workshop with speakers and
mock negotiations. He compared it
the recent negotiations with the
Taylor Energy Center.


County could seek grant

for new Aucilla boat ramp

The Steinhatchee boat ramp project is not the only ramp that could
potentially receive funds from a Florida Boating Improvement Grant.
According to County Grants Writer Melody Cox, the county would be
able to apply for a second improvement grant for a boat ramp on the
Aucilla River just north of U.S. Highway 98. Since this project would be
considered a Tier II ramp, it would not compete with the grant for the
Steinhatchee boat ramp project commissioners had previously approved.
Also, Cox noted, the state officials behind' the, grant "were positive"
about the Aucilla River project, which could add a floating dock and
parking facilities to the site.


"You sit here and you want to
blame [Olson] and in the next
breath, you want to dredge out
Keaton channel," Bethea said.
"It was dug out and if you're so
concerned--"
Gunter then interjected again.
"Now you're getting rude,"
Stamos said.
"And I just stopped him," Gunter
said.
"Now you see what's happened?"
Stamos said.
"And he corrected me and I
apologize," Bethea said.
"You blame me. People have
feelings and get emotional,"
Stamos said.
"George, you come up here..."
Bethea said.
"You, you, you! That's all you
say," Stamos said.
"I apologize," Bethea said.
"I apologize, too," Stamos said.
"I just had to get my feelings out
because I don't think that our staff
should be working with a
developer."
'I disagree with you, but perhaps


you should go tell Danny the same
thing you told us because he took
real offense to what you said,"
Gunter said.
"What is the pleasure of the
board?" Gunter asked.
Bethea then made a motion that
he, County Attorney Conrad
Bishop, Humphries and Griner
form a negotiating team and
see what the' developer will
offer.
"We sit down with every
developer that comes in the door
that has questions for us. We have
developers that come to our
technical review committee. That's
just what we get paid to do,"
Humphries said.
"We do that as part of the
technical review process and this
project is too big to run through
the technical review and needs to
be passed -off to the county
commissioners. That's why
we wanted to set up the negotiating
committee," he added.
Brown seconded and the
measure passed unanimously.

all-sports standings

The end of the year is finally here and the final rankings for total sports
programs are in the books. Taylor County finished 9th in the state in the
Class 3-A all-sports standings. Not bad considering we competed with 64
other schools.
This was a huge accomplishment for the young men and women in the
Bulldog Athletic Program. What a great legacy the class of 2006 has left
not only in regards to academics but also ini athletics. I thought it would
be fitting to list all the seniors by sport that made us so successful this
year.

WHAT WOULD JESUS DO? No.

JESUS WOULD ATTEND CHURCH

By Scott Mixon
Attending church is a crucial and vital part of a Christian s'
life. Yet many people who consider themselves Christians
don t attend Church on a regular basis. What would Jesus
do?
First and foremost, it is God s will that Christians assemble
together regularly. Hebrews 10:25-27 says, "Not forsaking
the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of
some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as
you see the day approaching.'
When we forsake the assembly without a valid reason,
whether it is occasionally or completely, we are disobeying
God and denying Him of our worship. In Matthew 6:33 Jesus
says, "Seek you first the kingdom of God and His
righteousness." The Church must be a top priority for the
Christian.
We have a number of commands associated with the Church
that can not be followed unless Christians attend. In I
Corinthians 11: 23-26, Christians are told to-assemble to
Commemorate Jesus, death by partaking of the Lord s Supper.
How can we follow the command, in Hebrews 10:25, to
exhort one another if we do not assemble with other
Christians? In Ephesians 5:19 and Col. 3: 16, Christians are
commanded to sing and admonish one another.
Members of the early Church continue to provide an
example for us today concerning how often we should attend.
In Acts 2:42 we read, They continued steadfastly in theK7;
apostle s doctrine, in fellowship, in breaking of bread and:
prayer. Acts 20:7 states, And upon the first day of the week,-
when the disciples came together to break bread, Pauf-.
preached unto them. The book of 1 Corinthians also provideE:i.
strong evidence that Christians met weekly (1 Corinthians
11:17-18, 20, 33; 14:23, 26). In I Corinthians 16:1-2, the
New International Version and the New American Standard :
translations make it clear that the First Century Christians
met at least weekly ( first day of every week NIV and
NASB).
We are commanded to be like Christ andfollow his example:
(Phil. 2:5-8). While most Christians. will agree with the.'-
corimmand for disciples to be Christ-like, many don t believe
that their failure to assemble is a violation of that command.S
Let s consider the following:
In Luke,2:42-49, when Jesus was 12 years old, his parents
could not find Him after leaving Jerusalem. After searching
for three days, they found him in the temple sitting among
teachers, listening, and asking questions. He responded to
his parents, "Why is it you are looking for me? Did you not
know that I had to be in my Father's house?" Even at a young
age, Jesus displayed His devotion to the Father by assembling
with those who were studying and teaching the Word of G6d.
In Luke 4:16, -the Bible says that Jesus had a habit C
custom ) of attending synagogue for worship.
Jesus maintains an example for Christians today. In fact,
Jesus. has never forsaken an assembly of Christians. In
Matthew 18:20, Jesus said "For where two or more are
gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of
them." Do we want to miss being with the greatest guest of
all, our Lord?
- When people fall away from the Lord, it is usually not.a
sudden thing. They usually start by forsaking the assembly
of Wednesday night Bible study. Then they start missing
Sunday evening worship. Next they stop coming to Sunday
morning Bible study; and then finally they stop coming to
Sunday morning worship.
When we choose not to gather with other Christians, we
are denying ourselves of all the benefits of worship that allow
us to grow and strengthen spiritually. If we do not look
forward to every opportunity we have to worship God "in
spirit and in truth," how will we be able to enjoy worshipping
God in heaven.

In Kyrgyzstani exchange student





Visit fuels dreams of democrat


By MARK VIOLA
Staff writer
The Perry Rotary Club had an
international flavor May 22 as they
listened to Nurmanbetov Nurdin, a
foreign exchange from Kyrgyzstan
who stayed the past school year
with Jeff and June Byers of Perry.
Nurdin was one of six exchange
students here in Perry and one of
60 from his country this past year.


Kyrgyzstan, a landlocked
country about the size of North
Carolina, is located in central Asia
between China and Kazakhstan.
"I have really enjoyed this year
in America," Nurdin said. "I have
learned a lot about American
culture."
He brought with him a number
of items from his country including
a man's hat worn at special


occasions and a model of a home
used by nomadic people in the past.
Nurdin also displayed his
country's flag, one he had made
himself to exhibit during Foreign
Exchange Student Week held late
last year.
The Kyrgystani flag is red with a
yellow sun in the center with 40
sunrays. According to Nurdin, the
rays represent 40 soldiers


Nurmanbetov Nurdin (right) was guest speaker recently at the Perry Rotary Club. Niturdin, a*
foreign exchange student from Kyrgyzstan, spent the past school year with Jeff and June Byers
of Perry. While here he experienced various aspects of American culture, from Thanksgiving
and Universal Studios in Orlando to attending the senior prom. He has since returned to his home
country, where he plans to study international relations at the American University of Central
Asia in Bishkek, Kyrygyzstan.


considered national heroes for
protecting the nation from
invaders. Intersecting bands inside
the sun represent "home" and are
reminiscent of the thatched roofs
used in the past. The red
background represents "the blood
spilt during the fight for
independence in August, 1991,
after the fall of the U.S.S.R."
While in the U.S., Nurdin
has experienced Thanksgiving,
Christmas and other aspects of
American culture.
One of the highlights of his stay,
he said, was his trip to Washington,
D.C. Nurdin earned the trip by
scoring high on a test sent out by
the foreign exchange organization.
More than 800 students applied
and only 121 made the cut,
including Nurdin.
During the trip, Nurdin appeared,
on the channel C-SPAN, where he
spoke about democracy in Asia. He
also met with senators and
congress members' from
Florida.
His most exciting moment from
the D.C. trip, however, was going
to the National Archives and seeing
the Declaration of Indepenjence.
"To see ,.the document that
created this country was very
moving," Nurdin said.
"It really inspired me to improve
my country, where there is
instability. It really inspired me
to bring democracy to my
'country and improve the way of
s life.
"This year was a turning point in
my life. I don't know what would
have happened if I didn't come
here. I \0ouldnt have nim goals that,
I ha\e today."


Days after his talk at the Rotary
Club, he. returned to his country.
He said he plans to study
international relations at the
American University of Central
Asia, a college established with
help from.the U.S. in Kyrgyzstan's
capital city, Bishkek.
"I'm going to do .my best to
develop democracy in my country
and show them how big the world
is and what there is out there."

'Will you be able to breathe healthy air?'


Dear Editor:
There have been several articles
in the paper debasing
e'1fiironmental action in Taylor
County. Each time the writer asks
that ,we present the facts, although
the writer does not present'facts.to
support their opinion! (Even the
paper fails to get the facts right at
times!)
If we did not .strive to do,
something now to help preserve'
our planet it would be like planning
a dinner party, but waiting to buy
groceries until after the store is
closed... too 'late! Moans of "Why
wasn't something dorie?"'will echo
across the landscape--if any
remains.
With.4-5 new coal plants and a
new nuclear plant slated for Florida
and 100-plants nation-wide, you
-can understand \.hy different types
of electrical energy need to be
developed now..
The expense to private enterprise
is high but the cost to our land/sea
and air. is higher. Your life may pot
be affected because of your age but
Sthe children of your children will
be. They are the ones for whom the
battle must be won. It is time to
step up to the plate and demand
that government, at all levels look
for alternative means to: produce
the electric power on which we are
so dependent.


Pollution assaults us every day
from the tires of your vehicle on
the road and the diesel fuel from
cars, trucks and trains. They all
create particulate matter.
Particulate matter is blown by the
wind. over very long distances.
Cars and 'trucks have been made
cleaner because manufacturers
heard enough voices to comply. Of
course the prices went up, but what
price.can be put on health? You candy
live a healthy life style, you can eat
healthy food, but will you be able
to breathe healthy air?
.FACT: The lifetime cancer risk
from diesel soot in Taylor County
exceeds the, risk of all other air
toxins combined, tracked by EPA.
From the Clean Air Website:


"'The average lifetime diesel soot
cancer .risk of a resident of Taylor
County is one in 12,786.
-"This risk is 78 times greater
than EPA's acceptable cancer level
of one in a million.".
Three diesel engines pulling coal,
cars will add 'to '.our already
burdened air quality.
Three in the drop-off site and 3
returning every day, plus the
pollution of all the waiting cars at
railroad crossings.
FACT: Clean coal is like safe
sex.,.there isn't any. Coalis dirt and
dirt is dirty. It can be washed at the
mines, adding to the cost. but it'
cannot be made clean 'enough to

DMH staff thanked for care


Dear Editor:
On Sunday, May 21, shortly
after church, my husband, Arthur,
Jack Decker, suffered an extremely
severe bout of chest pain that I
feared was another heart attack.
Knowing that old adage, "Time is
muscle," I wasted no time. in
calling Lafayette County EMS. It
seemed like hours, but I know it
was only matter of 10-15 minutes
before they arrived to the house.
Seeing the person you love


writhing on the floor in extreme
.pain can make minutes seem like
hours.
Once EMS arrived, they quickly
transported him to Doctors'
Memorial Hospital's Emergency
Department. He was quickly
placed into a room and emergency
measures were immediately,
initiated. The: emergency room
physician, nurses and ancillary
personnel worked professionally
and quickly using the most current'
techniques in Advanced Cardiac
Life Support to save my husband's
life. I have been an RN for more
.than 20 years and can tell you that
his care was the best I've ever seen,
and I have worked at some very
fine hospitals in large cities.
. By the time he had been air lifted
to North Florida Regional Medical
Center, his chest pain had been
reduced from a 5-10 down to a 2,
and reperfusion of the heart begun.
Had it not been for the quick
thinking and efficient work of the
ER staff that day, I'm. afraid' the
outcome would have been one I do
not care to think about. So I wish to
give the ER staff, Debbie, Jennifer,
Cathy, Bess, Dr. Mulvaney, the
flight crew, lab, cardiopulmonary,
and everybody else who
contributed to my husband's care a-
big, big, "thank you!" Thank you
for giving my husband his life.
Taylor County should be proud
to have a hospital with the fine
staff that Doctors' Memorial
Hospital has. The physical building
is beautiful, butt i s the dedicated,
caring staff of this fine facility that
makes the hospital a place I am
proud to work in and to send my
family to for care as well.
Sincerely,
Kathleen Decker, RN'
House Supervisor

TEC manager: environment,


economy are top priorities


Dear Editor:
A letter published in the Taco
Times on May 17 contained some
incorrect information about the
Taylor Energy Center. In response,
I would like to provide 'the
community with accurate
information about the steps we are
taking to protect the environment
and 'some facts about the number
and categories of jobs we will
create.
From the beginning, protecting
the environment has been one of
our top priorities at the Taylor
Energy Center. That's why we have
designed our state-of-the-art plant
as a zero liquid discharge facility.
"That means the Taylor Energy
Center will not release wastewater
into the Fenholloway River or any
other natural body of water. This
highly advanced design was
included in our plans from the
beginning because we take our
commitment to protecting Taylor
County's environment very
seriously.
We're also planning to use
advanced technology and design in
the plant's air quality control


system to keep emissions
extremely low and help maintain
good air quality in Taylor County
and the surrounding area.
Powering the economy is
another top priority at the Taylor
Energy Center, and one of the
primary factors to accelerating
economic growth is creating high-
paying jobs. The Taylor Energy
Center will provide skilled
manufacturing jobs with excellent
pay and benefits. And we are
committed to helping Taylor
County residents be qualified for
these jobs. That's why we are
partnering with local education and
job training organizations to
maximize the potential for local
hiring.
Employment during the four-
year construction period is
estimated to peak at 1,500 jobs.
Once the plant begins commercial
operation, we estimate there will
be 180 full-time jobs available.,
The average wage at the Taylor
Energy Center for all employees,
including management, is
estimated to be $55,400 (2005 '
dollars). This is higher than the


current average utility industry
wage reported for Taylor County of
$40,713 (2003 dollars) and more
than twice the county's current
average wage.
The operational life of'the plant
is expected to be 30 years. During
that time, we will maintain our
focus .on powering the economy
and protecting the environment.
As the project moves forward, a
reliable source of information
about the Taylor Energy Center is
Elvena Johnson, our local
representative in Perry. I encourage
anyone with questions to contact
her at our local office. The phone'
number is 223-2700. She will
provide accurate, up-to-date
information about the details of our
project.
As a future resident of Taylor
County, I share your interest in a,
clean environment and a healthy
economy. And, as a good neighbor,
I will continue, to make these
priorities at the Taylor Energy
Center.
Mike Lawson
Project Manager
Taylor Energy Center


Midweek Muddle


I sat behind home plate for a series of
baseball games this weekend, watching
batter after batter, parent after parent,
umpire after umpire.
Ard,the umpires intrigued me the most.
After they don all the necessary protective
gear, they look a little bit like "Gumby" from
the daughter's cartoon-watching days.
Their chests are puffed up with padding
and ego, and then all that body tapers down
to a waist, which extends to a couple of
yards of legs, with big black shoes at the
end.
It's a curious look.
But it's the personalities which I find most
interesting.
Now, before I proceed, there are a couple
of Men in Blue in our town who are among
my finest friends, and they need not take
offense at this. These were out-of-town,
umpires,' and thus fair game.'
Let's play ball.
It would seem that many umpires in the
League of Life were probably hall monitors
in seventh grade. They enjoyed having the
power of sending errant students to the
principal's office for checking their lockers
during lunch when the halls were supposed
to be clear.
"I just need my history book," I remember
saying to one hall. monitor some 30 years
ago, confident that my sincerity and-
youthful looks would assure this scrawny,
be-glassed power seeker that I wasn't out
for contraband or lipstick. Just history.
"You're not supposed to be in the halls
during lunch," he. repeated, in an official
tone resembling a telephone answering
machine. He was just doing his job--a job
for which he wasn't hired and didn't get
paid. I.knew that in seventh grade. What
-I've come to understand is that he didn't
need pay; it was 'the unbridled power that
meant everything.
"I am an A student, just looking for my
history book. Is this a crime?" I said,
defending myself as well as liberty and
justice.
"I'm gonna have to write you up."
Well, today, I'm writing him up.
I am pretty sure' that he is an umpire
somewhere, padded and puffed up, just
waiting to-declare, "You're outta there..."
I thought of him Saturday as I watched
one particular umpire in action.
"Huuuarrrhhhh," is the primal scream that
this official released upon mankind
whenever the ball that passed home plate
was a strike. The sound, which resembled
something accompanying a stomach virus,
came from deep within his shoes and
traveled past his kneecaps before it issued
from his mouth, as a deep belch with lasting
implications.
"Huuuarrrhhhh," I can now hear in my
sleep.
Of course, for one who never knows what
inning it is or how many strikes have been
counted, it's nice to have a clear scoreboard.
But don't you dare say, "Now, Blue, that


t're outta there...



By SUSAN H. LINCOLN

couldn't be a strike," for he will remove his
mask and look at you with steely eyes which
suggest that he has carved and eaten people
of your size for lunch. Got anymore
questions? Keep. them to yourself.
"I want to be an umpire," I said to the'
husband and, clearly, our neighborhood
could use one. Padding, beyond anything a
bra can provide, could extend my authority
above and beyond the teenagers who roam
through the streets, -houses and
refrigerators of our close-knit community.
When Life gets particularly troubling, I
could grab my mask off my face, throw it to
the ground, bulge my eyes at the wayward
teens and from a place deep in. my shoes,
gather up a "Huuuarrrhhhh" to at least get
their attention, if not their respect.
Got anymore questions? Keep them to
.yourself.
.-After playing ball, we went to a restaurant
which issues buzzers to its waiting patrons.
I was seated, just below the hostess and
noticed that she accomplished--without
padding or an official shirt--exactly what'
Old Blue the empire had. In fact, her shirt
didn't meet her slacks and that often has
more power than padding.
To me--someone who probably reminded
this college student of her mother-:she said,
"That will be 10-20 minutes; please take a
seat to my left."
I smiled for she had been both cordial and
efficient; I like that in a person.
Next, a mother and. daughter appeared;
they got the 10-20 minute ranking too.
But then this guy, with a beeper on his
belt, sauntered up to her podium, called her
"Doll" and sort of squinted in what he found
'to be a seductive way as he asked how
quickly she could get him in. He was
obviously important. Just ask him.
She cocked her head, smiled as if she was
under his remote control, and said with
confidence, "Thirty to 40 minutes."
"Whoaa," he said, backing up as if
someone had pushed him. "Surely you can
do-better than that, beautiful."
"Thirty to 40 minutes," she repeated.
Got anymore questions? Keep them to
yourself.
I was unable to contain my enjoyment of
the moment, as he took his toys and left.
It was clear: unbridled power extends
beyond seventh grade hall monitors to
baseball umpires, soup nazis and even
restaurant hostesses.
In a perky voice, the hostess turned to me
and said, "I have you a nice table right over
here."
"Thank you for being so efficient," I said.
"No problem," she said. "Enjoy your
meal."
I looked at the menu, and then looked
beyond our table to the back walls of this
dining establishment. On a sign hung at an
angle, the motto was clear: "Be Tidy, '-
Decent, or Be Prosecuted."
Got anymore questions? Keep them to
yourself.

Letters to the Editor


Hospice appreciates community's support


Dear Editor:
On May 19, the Taylor Made
Gospel Sing was held at the
Church of the Immaculate
Conception parish hall. This
wonderful event, benefiting Big
Bend Hospice, was made possible
through the generosity of many
individuals and businesses in
Taylor County.
We want to extend a heartfelt
thank you to everyone who
supported this event. Special
thanks goes to the Church of the
Immaculate Conception for the use
of the hall, to Doctors' Memorial
Hospital and Norma Reynolds for
preparing the dinner, the JROTC
from Taylor County High School
for serving the dinner, the ladies at
St. John's Christian Fellowship
Church for preparing the desserts,
John Fish who M.C.'ed the
program and Jim Frostick who
served as auctioneer. Our
entertainers, Frankie Edwards, the


Faith Quartet, the Big Bend
Hospice Music Therapists Keepin'
It Rural Singers, and Mike
Denmark made the evening a
delight.
Auction donors generated a
record amount of donations to help
meet Big Bend Hospice patient
care needs in Taylor County. More
than 50 businesses and individuals
donated- to this year's auction
making it the most successful
auction ever. And of course, a big
thanks goes to those who bid on the
auction items. The bidding was
brisk and at times highly
competitive. The winning bidders
received a double reward--a good
deal, plus supporting Big Bend
Hospice patients.
Our sincere appreciation is also
extended to Perry Newspapers,
Inc., and to Power County 92.1 FM
for spreading the word about the
gospel sing. Our record attendance
is a testament to the wonderful


public service announcements and Gospel Sing.
coverage. Regards,
On behalf of the Taylor County Catherine Arnold
Big Bend Hospice Advisory Community Relations
Council and staff, thanks to each Mary Jane Fish, R.N
and everyone who donated, Taylor County Nurse

and supported the Taylor Made Family Support Counselor

Veterans' needs underscored


Dear Editor:
There are other needs for
veterans in the state of Florida.
If you do not have a service
connected illness you better not
call 911. The law reads, the EMT's
,have to take you to the nearest
hospital.
My husband was just told he has
bladder cancer. We were scheduled
for him to check in the V.A. in
Gainesville June 1, to replace
blood platelets so he could have
surgery June 6 to remove the


cancer.
Memorial Day I woke up to find
my husband very sick; he could not
sit up much less stand up. I called
for medical advice in Lake City
where I was told I had two choices:
bring him in to Lake City or call
911. I could not get him out of bed
by myself so I called 911. They took
him to DMH hospital to stabilize
him for transport to VA medical
center. Here's where your problems

-burn without emitting toxins.
Toxins may be reduced but not
removed entirely. There are several
types of coal and each impacts air
quality when it is burned. Today
might be a good day ito measure
pollution out of the 700-foot stacks
-las one kind of coal is burned.
Tomorrow a different type, or a
mixture would be burned and it
might not be a good day to measure
pollution. Which day's
measurement will be reported to
the government?
FACT: Our elected officials did
almost 'no research before they
decided that more pollution would
impact thousands of people as this
plant will.
FACT: Coal gasification plants
reduce carbon dioxide and
mercury. There. will not be one
built in your county because "it is,
too expensive" to build. .The


technology is there and is being
used right now to build electric
plants. By the time the pulverized
plant might be completed in 2012,
gasification will be the way to
handle coal. What will we be stuck
with? A dinosaur, outdated before
used.
FACT: "Learn about Coal," the
web site recommended last week,
is paid for and supported by coal-
based electric utilities.
FACT: The Union of Concerned
Scientists are not supported by the
government and they' do research
about coal on all levels. They
answer questions, via email, on
their website www.csa.org. Other
--veb-sites are: www.nrdc.org,
www.carbonfootprint.com and
www.cleantheair.org. An excellent'
book to read is: Coal: A Human
History by Barbara Freese.
If my facts bother you, call me at
223-1390 and give me your
supporting data. Convince me that
I am wrong. Convince me that my


efforts are not needed to save the
species of the world, that man will
control it all and we will be in a
clean environment for ages to
come.
Convince me that the mountains,
rivers, lakes and streams will run
clear and abundantly supply fish,
that the forests will not die of
toxins from acid rain, that rising
sea levels won't wipe out
communities. Convince m'e that the
children of the world: will live
without asthma, bronchitis and
cancer caused by run-a-,way profit
makers. I am willing to listen.,
I am for jobs, clean jobs that will
keep people employed for longer
than the construction. For example,
, I support using the old hospital for
a VA hospital or assisted living
facility for our veterans. (In 2004
health care provided 13.5 million
jobs.)
Don't believe that this plant is a
done deal. It isn't.

'Veterans have to fight for benefits'


ILLNESS
Continued from page 3


problems start.
T'p'e VA won't take
responsibility for him to be
transported. I was told they
wouldn't pay for lifeflight nor
ambulance. If your insurance gets
"canceled you can't afford the
premium for another policy, (so


don't get sick while you have
insurance because they'll cancel
your policy), and you're too young
yet for Medicare. If ydu own a
decent vehicle or a piece of land,
you can't get Medicaid, so it's left
up to you to pay your transport.
How many veterans have the funds
to pay the high cost of their
services. Dr. Diane Haisten and
DMH have been doing everything


they can for him but they are
limited. Many thanks goes out
to DMH, Dr. Haisten and the staff
in the intensive care unit. They
have been just terrific to us.
I have talked to a lot of young
men and women at the VA and
they have to fight a war and come
home not completely a whole
person and they have to fight for
the benefits that are supposed to


be there for them. Do you think
they are going to send their sons
and daughters to fight for us?
Very respectfully,

'Legislator of the Year'



'Greyhounds' pick


Kendrick for honor


State Representative Will
Kendrick was presented with the
"Legislator of the Year" award by
the Florida Greyhound Association
at their annual meeting in
Jacksonville last week.
As sponsor of legislation this
year for greyhound owners and
breeders, Representative Kendrick
was recognized for his efforts to
bring the same fairness in purses
and awards to the greyhound
industry that is currently enjoyed
in the thoroughbred and jai alai
industries.
Jack Cory, who represents the
Florida 'Greyhound Association
said, "We are proud of the
endeavors put forth by
Representative Kendrick on behalf
of the greyhound industry. He has
been a champion for equal
treatment under the law."
Prior to the beginning of the
2006 Session, Kendrick toured
greyhound farms in his district to
gain insight into the workings of
and the importance of maintaining
an industry that provides a


livelihood for the owners and
breeders that he represents in
North Florida.
