Upshaw's car was leaving the
motel and that there were two
occupants in it," said Kelly. "Dep.
Gibson and I pulled out of Burger
King and got in behind the car and
conducted a traffic stop.
"When I made contact with
Upshaw and explained why I had
pulled him over, I told him his
window tint was too dark and that I
was going to test it. While I was
getting my tint meter, Dep. Gibson
spoke to Upshaw, who appeared
very nervous, to the point that his
hands were shaking," Kelly said.
The tint tested out at 14 percent,
which is illegal in the State of
Florida.
While writing a citation for the
tint, Gibson and his canine partner,
"Jeremiah," conducted a free air
walk around Upshaw's car, to
which the dog alerted.
"At this time, we told Upshaw
that the K-9 had alerted on his car
and that we would be searching it.


Upshaw then told us that 'No, ya'll
ain't going to search my car,"'
Kelly added.
"As I was finishing writing the
citation," said Kelly, "I looked up
and saw Upshaw take off and run."
Kelly said he gave chase as
Upshaw ran across Hwy. 19, into
the parking lot of Citizens Bank,
yelling for him to stop.
"When he approached Baker
Street, he was met by Bratcher and
Anderson, anrid was handcuffed by
TCSO Dep. Jay Ricketson and then
transported to the county jail,"
Kelly added.
When Upshaw was searched, he
was found to be in possession of
more than $600.

that's what we did and she (Van
Susteren) was very nice. She was
'very funny and very
personable...and a lot shorter than I

A-2 Taco Times June 14, 2006


Speeder decries 'visitor tax


Dear Editor:
In addition to my submission of
my fine to Taylor County and
court, I wanted to voice my
discontent over the manner in
which your county enacts its
"visitor" tax in stopping travelers
passing through your county.
Naturally, all of the laws are
stacked up against the driver in
favor of the surveillance officer
and stalker radar computer
technology. Still, it is the way in.
which your county sends a
message to drivers that says, "stay
away!" from our economically
beleaguered county, "pay your fine
and leave." How else can you
justify being the only car on
Highway 19 from horizon to
horizon and being stopped by the
only other vehicle--an officer--
traveling in the opposite direction?
I'm sure the treads on my rental car
tires would not have been legal if
an officer needed revenue for their
monthly quota. I know that a
county quota would never be
admitted, but it is apparent that is
exactly what your county practices.
Now you can feign that, "If you
break the law, you pay" but think
of that the next time you drive


down your block or litter
inadvertently. There are virtually
hundreds of ways in which you
break the law daily. It's only
American. We, all know that laws
are meant to protect citizens and
scientifically there is little risk of
getting into a major accident while
going nine miles over the speed


Dear Editor:
The location of the coal
generated power plant is close to
my modest home. I have been
concerned that I might need to,
relocate to live comfortably if the
plant is built in Taylor County. My
family enjoyed the forests that are.
home to wildlife and the fish that
swim in the waters of Taylor
County. We all appreciated the
absence of hea% y pollution.
Air pollution from coal-burning
plants mixes with rain which
becomes acid rain as it falls to
earth. This acid kills trees and
lakes. What a shame it would be
for Taylor County, known as the


limit while being the only vehicle
on the road. Of course, we are
expected to be grateful, in the
democracy of ours, that we aren't
"taxed" more for our innocent
indiscretions.
The manner in which the "travel

Tree Capital of the South, and the
Florida Forest Festival if this
happens. There will be at least 300
pounds of mercury that will come
with the operation of the Taylor
Energy entity each year.
The children of Taylor County
deserve every effort that caring
people can make to demand that
any coal plant that is built use the
latest and cleanest technology
available. And our smaller
population in Taylor County
should never have to endure
pollution that is the result of coal
generated electricity sold to other
counties.

Letters to the Editor


'Commission adopted double standards'


Dear Editor:
It appears that our County
Commission has adopted a set, of
,'double standards. Several weeks
ago when Diane Whirfield was
speaking to the commission, the
commission allowed a member of
the audience to personally attack
her and her family.. This attack was
allowed to go on for approximately
five minutes. Not one time did


Commissioner Gunter use his
gavel to stop the personal attack
This ,% as not the case last week
when George Stamos tried to raise
the question of Taylor County
giving special attention to a known
felon in putting together a plan for
developing one' of the .most.
ent ironmenialhs sensitive areas'of
the Gulf Coast."
.While the commission may or


may not have agreed with him,
the\ should have allowed him to
speak just as the man who made
the personal attack on Mrs.
Whirfield was speaking. The
commission should set one set of
rules and require everyone to
follow them, not just the people
they don't agree with.
Thanks,
Rick Causey'

Writer laments race cancellation in Taylor


Dear Editor:
I am sad to see that the W-PSA;
ATV national MX race ito be held
at Blue Rok raceway in Perry on
June' 24-25th) -was recerntlt
canceled due to a county


commission decision (after the
race had been scheduled .and
promoted, by WPSA). 'I Was
planning 'on visiting Perry that'
weekend with my family, and
attending the race.


The WPSA ATV races are
televised' by ESPN2 and would
have brought significant economic,
activity and recognition to the
Perry area (and Taylor County).
The ATV motocross events I have.
'attended at Gatorback Cycle Park
(in, Gainesville) the past few years
are always fun and attended very
well. The "ATV racers" are usually
responsible families that follow
stringent safety rules and
regulations, and also drive many
miles to attend the races.
The events are only for one
weekend and the quads do not run
tin the .evening (to my knowledge)
and, of course, there are noise
regulations for the ATVs. I don't
know what exactly led to the
decision to allow. the race initially
and then cancel it a couple of
weeks before it was to be held,
(I've heard it was some kind of
"due process" complaint by local
landowners, which certainly
sounds legitimate), but I am sorry
to see such a "golden opportunity"
for the area botched up.
Here's hoping you will
reconsider and go through due
process to get the race on the
schedule for next year, although I
doubt WPSA would entertain the
idea now (once bitten, twice shy).
Just wanted to share my feelings.

,"After spending all this money, I really
want to say something more than 'Her
mother and I..." my friend said, and I
looked at him quizzically.
"You know, when the preacher asks,
'Who gives this bride in marriage?', I'm
supposed to say 'Her mother and I.' And
that's it. ]'m not supposed to wave at
anybody or fuss about all the money;
I'm just supposed to say 'Her mother
and I.'" He paused--a frustrated man--
and shook his head.
"I want to say more than that," he said.
The bride-to-be rolled her eyes as the.
thought of her father saying more than,
"Her mother and I..." struck fear in her,
heart.
."He wouldn't quit talking," she feared.
"He'd have an audience. There's no
telling what he would say," she said,
breaking out in a cold sweat, and there
isn't. We 'can both agree on that.
I've spent some time lately with
fathers of the. bride and they're an
interesting group of men. They are
literally Men In Tuxes Between a Rock
and a Hard Place.
They don't necessarily understand the
wedding fal-de-rah, but they
understand that they are supposed to
understand it. So they fake it, find
reasons to go to work, disappear from
dinner table conversations, mow the
grass more and drive around in their
trucks where life is predictable.
"I thought about adding up everything
we spent, and then I wasn't sure I had
the heart for it," said one. "The only
thing I'm sure of is that we haven't paid
for it all yet."
Weddings, to be sure, have entered
into a new and higher realm of lavish
extravagance.
And as my dear friend, mother of
four, asks: "What's so wrong with cake
and punch?" The answer comes back to
her from four different voices: "But we
want a band...and a seated dinner...and
a party after the reception..."and the list
goes on.
Their father, obviously a complete
failure, admits that he tried to teach
these four girls their first word: elope.
He can use it in sentences, "Just
remember, elope." Or, "It's okay if you
elope." He can.use different tenses of it,
"Eloping is not such a bad idea."
But every girl wants a wedding,
doesn't she? The princess gown? The
grand reception? The four-tiered
wedding cake?
Yes, every bride wants the moon and
stars, and most parents will travel
through the solar system and back to
make that happen. After all, it's just
one more small loan....in a series of
small loans. It started with buying a


hers of the bride

piano and committing to lessons, it
extended to dance lessons, recitals and
'costumes, then it reached a fever pitch
with a car and graduation, college and
:an apartment, and why should anybody
be surprised that these children of ours
appear on our doorstep and expect a
wedding that Donald Trump could
attend?
"Set a budget," said my cousin, the
father of the bride, to me.
"We had to extend the budget, but at
least we had a budget," admitted this
cousin, a man who had been beaten
down by lace and promises.,
"I finally said I was absolutely not
spending another penny,'" he said to me,
and 1 felt like a Catholic minister in
confession as this man quietly recalled
the angst of it all. "Absolutely not.
Don't come see me. Don't ask me."
Then he paused. -"Because," he said as
thoughtfully as he could, "this isn't it.
They think this is it," he said. "But I've
been around long enough to know this
isn't it. Ev\ery'time I think this is it,. it's
not. It's something else."
"Settle down," I said to him, as he'
preached,; and he's an electrical
engineer, not a preacher.
"They think," he said, and then he
reiterated to make sure I understood,
"my wife and my daughter think this is
it. But about the time I finish paying for
this wedding, my daughter and her new
husband will want to buy a new house
and we'll want to buy them a nice gift
for it. An appliance, or a deck or
something really nice. Or they'll
announce that a grandchild is on the
way."
He shook his head, like a man
trying to solve the Iraqi crisis before
lunch.
"This isn't it," he just kept repeating. "I
know it won't stop here."
The crescendo of life doesn't stop
with, "I now pronounce you husband
and wife." In fact, it only begins. And
that's a sentiment my cousin wanted to
make perfectly clear.
His daughter, an engineering graduate
from a university I love, earned the top
award for her -class. She's smart and
beautiful, and the rest of u's can't help
but wonder how all that happened and
envy it. too. She was a debutante; she
was a princess bride.
He finished paying for the wedding,
and she'called.'
"Dad, I've decided to go to med
school."
And who in the world do you think
will want to help pay for that?
Step .forward my cousin and speak
loudly to the congregation, "Her mother
and I."

In Steinhatchee, Keaton


Marina, boat ramps flood


ALBERTO
Continued from page 1


high enough to spill into the
parking lot of the public boat ramp.
With a little more than an hour
before the afternoon high tide, sea
levels at Steinhatchee reached the
edge of Riverside Drive.
The surge, however, ended
before the peak of high tide, with
water levels beginning to drop
around 2:45 p.m.
Lc Away from the coast, the damage
from the storm was minimal, with
several downed trees and power
e outages. The Department of
Forestry office in Perry recorded
three and one half inches of rain
from 8 p.m. Monday through 8
a.m. Tuesday. The observation post
at Foley recorded the same amount
for the period.
As the back edge of the storm
made landfall Tuesday afternoon,
the western side of the county was
deluged by a new series of storms
dropping heavy amounts of rain
and winds reaching.40 mph.
While Alberto churned its way
toward the Taylor County coast
Monday, forecasters seemed to be
one step behind the storm as it
continued to confound them for
most of the day.
After the storm's sudden
intensification midday, state and
local officials quickly moved into
action. Around noon Governor Jeb
Bush, by executive order, declared
a state of emergency for the area
expected to be impacted by the
storm.
Shortly thereafter, at 2 p.m.,
local emergency management
officials called for a mandatory
evacuation of the coastal and low-
lying areas of the county.
The county's siren system. at
Steinhatchee, Keaton Beach and
Dekle Beach--which was tested
only last Thursday in preparation
for hurricane season--was used to
alert residents of the situation.
Taylor Cbunty Elementary
School was opened as a shelter for
evacuees and district school buses


Local officials gathered for a conference call with representatives from the National Hurrican
Center Monday evening.



Rainfall tops six inches?


Rainfall amounts in Taylor
County associated with Tropical
Storm Alberto will likely exceed
six inches in some areas while
winds were more than 40 mph
Tuesday afternoon as the system
moved inland.


Rainfall totals at the Department
of Forestry office on Plantation
Road measured 3.5 inches as
of 8 a.m. Tuesday but continued
rainfall Tuesday morning and
afternoon will likely push
those totals close to five
inches.
Areas in northern and western
Taylor County including Shady
Grove will likely exceed six inches
due. to a strong feeder band that
was dumping rain at a rate of
4-plus inches per hour Tuesday
afternoon.
Other area rainfall totals as of 8
a.m. Tuesday included the Mayo


Forestry Station at 4.3 inches, the
Horseshoe Beach (Dixie County)
fire tower at 4.53 inches and the
Foley tower west of Perry at 3.5
inches.
Winds associated with the storm
began picking up about noon
Tuesday and appeared to peak
about 3 p.m. at 37 mph with gusts
to 42 mph, according to the
weather station at Keaton Beach
operated by the National Data
Buoy Center.
Throughout Monday night and
into Tuesday morning, sustained
winds hovered between 14 and 2,1
mph.

locations along the coast to help
transport those who needed
assistance.
At 5:15 p.m., a conference call
was held with local representatives
from almost every governmental
and law enforcement agency to
discuss the approaching storm with
the National Hurricane Center
as well as regional weather
services.
Led by Taylor County
Emergency Management Director.
Brianne Hoover, the meeting was
held in the county's emergency
operations center located in the
basement of the courthouse.
It was at this meeting that the
latest change in Alberto's forecast
became apparent. Rather than
making landfall sometime around
7 p.m. Tuesday, forecasters were
now predicting an 8 a.m. landfall,
cutting in half the time residents
had to flee the coast.
City and county officials decided
to close their respective offices
Tuesday with the exception of
essential personnel.
Personnel from the.- Taylor
County Sheriffs .Office,
emergency management and
fire/rescue then traveled back to
the coast, going door-to-do6r and
using public address systems to
warn people to leave their homes.
In addition to calls from
concerned residents, emergency
management officials began to
field calls from state and national
media outlets trying to make it to
the coast before the storm hit.
At 6:15 p.m., the county
commission held an emergency
meeting, declaring a state of
emergency for Taylor County.
"They're really great about
working hand in hand," Public
Information Officer Mandy
Cornelius said.
State Emergency Response
Team Area II Coordinator Bryan
Lowe was at the local EOC for the
duration of the storm's approach
and landfall.
Officials did not have concrete


numbers of how many people
actually heeded evacuation orders,
but only three people were reported
at the TCES shelter overnight.
They were recommending to
residents Tuesday not to return to
their homes until at least after the
3:30 p.m. high tide as water
continued to rise much of the
afternoon.
"People seem to be complying,"
Cornelius said.
The Red Cross is asking
residents to register their Tropical
Storm Alberto damage on-line at
the following web site:
www.tallytown.com/redcross/dam
ageassessment.html.

For DCA meeting

Commission

will travel to


Tallahassee

The Taylor County Commission
will travel as a board to
Tallahassee Friday to meet with
representatives from the Florida
Department of Community Affairs
(DCA).
The purpose of the meeting is to
discuss the department's decision
that finds part of the county's
comprehensive plan is "not in
compliance" and will be held at the
DCA offices located at 2555
Shumard Oak Boulevard in
Tallahassee at 2 p.m.
At an emergency meeting held
April 19, commissioners decided
to meet with DCA in an attempt to
resolve the matter;
The problem arose from a
disagreement between DCA and
the county over differing
interpretations over allowable
building densities of land
designated "coastal -high hard
areas" (CHHA) in the comp
plan.

I know, I have the option of a

Why isn't a warning enough to

not do away with usury of hitting

Steinhatchee salutes A-B students


Steinhatchee School has
announced its honor roll studenCts
for the last nine-week grading
period. They are as follows:
Kindergarten: A honor
roll:
Sailor Bailey, Sandy Lundy.
Jennifer Martinez, Destiny Neal,
Sylvia Von Stein, Sarah Buzhee
and Dylan Webb.
B honor roll:
Ty Cannon, Charlie Shepard,
Taylor Vaughn, Loredana Stein,
Douglas Whittington and Kennan
Wood.
1st grade: A honor roll:
Chacli Norwood, Valarie Brown
and Angel Dickey.


motorist wanted warning


the way that money is ripped from
taxpayer's wallets on a daily basis,
I'm sure.
So what do I expect? A warning
would have sufficed. The State of
Florida can always tell how many
times a warning has been issued to
a driver and should be able to
interpret a trend toward
malfeasance. To recklessly give
out a ticket in record time,
suggests that the county has only
one priority; and that is to keep
the money coming in. '
., But if it isn't obvious by now,
.your county only stands to lose
more in the long run when people
stop visiting, or even traveling
through your area. Then you will
only have to subject your trapped
residents to even more draconian
measures to insure a constant flow
ofrevenue. We all know that if
you interpret every letter of the
law, you could virtually generate
millions of dollars every week by
all.the violators from jaywalkers


to murderers.
Though this will fall on deaf
ears, I suggest that your officers
lighten up on your policies that
don't have an obvious
disadvantage. Speeding--while
being the only vehicle on the road-
-does not constitute a serious
violation deserving of a $77.50
tax. Yes, I know the fine could be
higher, but the point is that a
warning would have sufficed:
Instead of hating myself for
getting caught, I only have a more
disrespect for a "system" that
marginalizes their population into
being unsuspected revenue
providers in a region that should
have their welcoming arms open. I
only hope other residents of
Taylor County recognize that
people should be more in control
of their penalties rather than to
have them meted out by a
suspicious and phony lact of
having our welfare in mind..

the process includes public
participation.
For two species, the FWC's
action reflects good news. Bald
eagles no longer are in danger of
extinction in the foreseeable
future. Once Commissioners
approve a new management plan
to protect them into the future, the
FWC no longer will include them
on the imperiled species list.
"What we're doing for eagles is
working," FWC Executive
Director Ken Haddad said. "That's
good news. Our goal is for all
imperiled species to recover to the
point where we can remove them
from the list."
Bald eagles have established
1,133 known nesting territories in
Florida, and each territory has one
or two adult eagles. Forty years
ago, the whole country had about
400 nesting pairs.
Manatees, currently listed as an
endangered species, have recovered
to the point they are no longer in
imminent danger of extinction,
although they still require careful
management.
Once their new management
plan is complete, the FWC will
reclassify them as threatened. '
Haddad said the new
classification will not result in
less protection for the species. He
said protection measures are
specific for each species' needs,
regardless of its classification.
Two other species that haven't
fared as well are gopher tortoises
and Panama City crayfish. FWC
Commissioners approved staff
recommendations to create new
management plans' and continue
the process of reclassifying both
animals from, species of special
concern to threatened.

WHAT WOULD JESUS DO?No. 6

JESUS WOULD PRAY
By Bill Blue
Most Americans regardless of faith would probably agree that people,-
even faithful Christians, do not pray enough. It comes as no surprise that
unfaithful believers do not pray often enough, but why not faithful
Christians? Perhaps the reasons why some Christians have poor prayer-
habits include material wealth and success, the influence of an ungodly
culture, worldly values, and the lack of belief that God answers prayers.-,
Perhaps tragedies and injustices in our daily lives convince some that God-
doesn t care for our present needs. In the United States political-correctness-
has successfully banned God from schools and the workplace; God is out
of sight and out of mind until the next worship service and as a result,
godly people are out of practice, and have simply forgotten the importance'
of prayer. What would Jesus do? Jesus would pray.
Jesus had a habit of praying (Luke 5:16). We should have the same
habit (1 Thess. 5:17).
Jesus would pray at any time of the day or night (Luke 6:12). Prayer
was a priority for Christ. Jesus would even on occasion rise long before
daylight to pray (Mark 1:35). In other words, Jesus planned for
opportunities to pray.
Jesus would pray anywhere. Jesus prayed in the wilderness (Luke
5:16), on mountains (Mark 6:46, Luke 6:12, Luke 9:28), and at Gethsemane
(Mark 14:32). In other words, Jesus took advantage of His opportunities -
to pray.
Jesus prayed long prayers (Luke 6:12). and short prayers (Luke 11:1-
3). Our prayers to God have no required length as long as our prayer is,
"-hbmble ariidsincere (Matthew 6:5-7, Matthew 23:14, Mark 12:40, Luke,
18:10-14, Luke 20:46-47). Regardless of length, Jesus prayed earnestly;:
knowing that the Creator of all things was listening (Luke 22:44). .
Jesus would pray at many different occasions. Jesus prayed when He,
was baptized and began His ministry (Luke 3:21), before He selected twelve
disciples to be His Apostles (Luke 6:12-13), at His transfiguration (Luke
9:28-32), before instituting the Lord s Supper (Matthew 26:26) and at His:
moments of greatest need (John 17:1; Luke 22:44).
Jesus would pray privately, in small groups and publicly. At times,
Jesus sought opportunities to pray alone to God (Matthew 14:23, Mark
1:35, Luke 5:16, Luke 9:18, Luke 22:41). At times, He even asked the
disciples to stay behind, or sent them away, so He could pray alone.
(Matthew 26:36; Mark 6:46). On other occasions, He took disciples with-
Him to pray (Luke 9:28).
Jesus prayed for many different people:
Himself (John 17:1);
The Apostles (John 14:16, John 17.6-15);
All believers (John 17:20);
His enemies (Luke 6:28); and
The entire world (Matthew 5:44).

Jesus prayed for many different things, such as:
God s work (Matthew 9:38, Luke 10:2) and God s will be done (Matthews
26:39, 42);
Children be blessed (Matthew 19:13);
Believers be strengthened and be able to strengthen others (Luke 22i32);,

Jesus tells us how to pray. "In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father
in heaven, Hallowed be Your name [in other words, honor God and-
acknowledge His, authority] Your kingdom come. Your will be done ori
earth as it is in heaven [we accept, God s will] Give us our daily bread-
[help us with our necessities of life not material excess] And forgive us
our sins [help us with our truly important problems, like avoiding hellj
For we also forgive everyone who is indebted to us [we acknowledge God s
word on mercy and forgiveness (Matt. 6:14-15; Mark 11:25), thusi.wd
conform to His will] And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver u.
from the evil one [again we focus on our true needs, spiritual in natfffre]'!
(Luke 11:1-4; Luke 22:40).
Jesus would pray for the right reasons. Jesus would not forget thai
God is a prayer s target audience, not others listening to His prayer. Jesus
would pray to enlist God s help, not men s attention (Matthew 6:5-7:
Matthew 23:14, Mark 12:40, Luke 20:47).
Jesus tells us the benefits of prayer. Prayer strengthens our faith (Luke
18:1), and helps keep us from sin (Matthew 26:41, Mark 13:33, Mark
14:38, Luke 22:46).
Jesus would pray with faith, not doubting whether God would answer
His prayer (Matthew 21:22, Matthew 26:53, Mark 11:24, Luke 18:1).
Jesus understood that some things happen only through prayer. In
Mark 9:29, Jesus said to His disciples that, "This kind [of demon] can
come out by nothing but prayer and fasting." We do not have demon
possession today, but the point is still valid. When Jesus Himself had no
place else to turn, He "fell on the ground, and prayed that if it were possible,
the hour might pass from Him" (Mark 14:35).
Do you pray as you should? Do you plan and find time to pray? Do
you take advantage of opportunities to pray? Are your prayers humble
and reverent? Do you pray for others? When times are good do you
neglect prayer? Talk to your Father. In times of need do you hesitate to
ask your Father for help because you failed to pray when times were good?
Ask your Father for help. Jesus would.

PPD Ptl. Kristina Reis was
called to the scene to arrest the
passenger of the car, Shalonda
Abercrombie, 25, who became
argumentative and resisted being
handcuffed. PPD Ptl. Garrett
Campbell assisted Reis in taking
Abercrombie into custody.
Upshaw was charged with
possession of cocaine with intent

substance with intent to sell,
escape and resisting arrest without
violence.
Abercrombie was charged with
possession of cocaine with intent
to sell, possession of a controlled


substance with intent to sell and
resisting arrest without violence.
She was given a $100,000 bond
by County Judge Stephen "Buddy"
Murphy, who also issued a "no
bond" order for Upshaw.
"This was another joint effort
between PPD and TCSO that went
off almost flawlessly," said
Bratcher.
"Yes, it did," said Anderson.
"Upshaw ran away for a few
moments, but was quickly
apprehended. And it makes us very
happy when we see our county
judge impose a stiff 'no bond' order
on an alleged drug dealer."
"The more time these people are,,
in jail, the less time they have to
sell drugs," added Bratcher.

reducing the number of breaches
that have occurred in the past,"
Nicholson said. "Ultimately, these
upgrades will allow biologists
better control over water flow in

improve management for
waterfowl and other wildlife."

Ranger Greist featured

in 'Blueprint' interview

BLUEPRINT
Continued from page 1
The "Back to the Blueprint" crew, with Producer Kate Geis, focused its
attention on the corn crib behind the homestead. The small log building
had been used to store animal feed.
The projects for the day were to replace a log which was beginning to
rot in the back wall of the corn crib as well as to repair a rafter in its roof
with Dunham working with Bureau of Recreation and Parks Construction
Specialist Binion Waters.
Dunham has been restoring and renovating homes since he was 19 and
has worked on several Parade of Home winning houses.
Longtime park ranger Jim Greist was also interviewed as he gave a
filmed tour of the grounds.
"Back to the Blueprint" debuted last November with the first season
including episodes on a 300-year old Saltbox home in Connecticut, a
brownstone in New York City, a 1955 O'Mahony diner in Cleveland, Ohio,
and the Fox Tuscon Theatre in Tuscon, Ariz.

s.'..st year performed .to more than two million children around -hie

e*Ouhssaige is simple: be happy, love life, and love education.
Qur performances have been described as a 'cozy companion to FCAT

daio, better known as Mr. Tim and Ms. Laura, said.
On Thursday, the library will hosts guest speakers from Florida
State University's Ml g Lab. Children ages nine and up are invited to

... .: .


By MARK VIOLA
Staff writer
Taylor Correctional Institute
(TCI) Warden Sam Culpepper was
guest speaker recently at the Perry
Rotary Club.
Culpepper, who was born in
Gilchrist County, has been in the
correctional field almost his entire
career.
He worked -at a number of
prisons in North Florida before
being transferred to Everglades
Prison in 2003 and then here.
"I'm proud to be warden here,"
he said.
According to Culpepper, there
are 54 major correctional
institutions in Florida, as well as
"countless work release programs
and work camps."
The Florida Department of
Corrections (DOC) employs more
than 27,000 people including
probation officers and works with a
$2 billion budget.
Florida also has five private
prisons, which are run by
contractors.
Culpepper described the DOC as
a paramilitary organization with
six departments.
At TCI, under Culpepper, there
are two assistant wardens and then
department heads. In total, DOC
employs some 475 people at the
prison.
Once the new dorms are
complete, that number could
increase to 700.
At the time of his talk, there were
1,033 inmates in the prison,
consisting (of "close custody,
medium security and minimum


security prisoners."
The prison's $6.2 million
workcamp was recently completed,
Culpepper said. It was entirely
built by inmate labor, with the
exception of the fences and lights
installed with contracted work. By
using inmate labor, DOC saved
$1.5 million in construction costs,
he added.
The prison's classification staff




S .-
-' i g. '


decide which prisoners are eligible
to go out to work in the crews.
"The majority of inmates can't
go out," Culpepper said.
At the time of his speech, there
were four inmate crews working in
Taylor County: two with the
county, one with the city and one
with the school board.
"They are invaluable," he said.
The inmate crew with the school


board only works on school
grounds in the summer, or on
Saturday and Sundays during the
school year.
"If a child shows up, we leave,"'
he said.
TCI also boasts one of the
highest completion rates 'for its
prisoner GED program, with a
higher than 90 percent pass rate,
Culpepper said.

In an emergency



Do you have a safety plan for our pet?


Bruce Foster


Foster is elected

vice commander

Bruce Foster, founder and
former commander of AMVETS
Post 20 in Perry, was recently
elected vice commander of
AMVETS Department of Florida
at their annual convention in.
Orlando..
In his new capacity, Foster will
be-in charge of all programs for
AMVETS throughout Florida. He
currently lives in Gainesville.
AMVETS is one of the'largest
.veterans organizations in the U.S.,
chartered in 1947.


Keeping mi mind that the 2006
hurTicane season has just started,
TaylIor County Emergency
Management encourages local
residents to "get.- ready now--
prepare. plan and stay informed."
In addition -to having a
emergency plan for- your family,
Director Brianne Hoover said, "pet
osiners also need to develop
an emergency plan for your
pets. ,
"\\ whether you decide to stay put
in an emergency or evacuate to a
. safer location, you will need to
make plans in advance for your.
pets. Keep in mind that what's best
ior \ ou is typically What's best for
\our animals." she said, taking a'
cue from the U.S. Department of
Homeland Security.
Hoover f recommends that
pet owners visit the department's'
on-line web site at. www.
ready.gov/america/pets.html.
There., you'll find' a complete
checklist for preparing a plan for
your pets. It just makes sense," she
said.,
Plan tips include: preparing a pet


emergency supply kit; planning
what you will do in an emergency;
and staying informed about
different types of emergencies that
may occur.
"Make a back-up emergency


plan in case you can't care for your
animals yourself. Develop a buddy
system with neighbors, friends and
relatives to make sure that
someone is available to care for or
evacuate your pets if you are


unable to do so. Be prepared to
improvise and use. what you have
on hand to make it on your own for
at least three days, maybe
longer."
The 2006 hurricane season will


end Nov. 30.
For additional information on
hurricane preparedness plans,

Emergency Management office at

'Packing a Punch with Words'


Does your writing lack luster?
Do you have trouble getting started
on writing projects? If so, North
Florida Community College
(NFCC) invites you to participate
in its upcoming free writer's
workshop "Literati Karate:
Packing a Punch with Words,"
featuring popular writer and poet
Jayne Jaudon Ferrer Thursday,
June 22, from 9-11 a.m. I
Born and raised in the rural
community of Wauchula, Ferrer
seemed destined for a life of
writing at an early age. She
published her first story, about
horses, while only in the fourth
grade.


A few years later in 'middle
school Ferrer was writing a weekly
column for the local newspaper. By
high school she had sold a series of
country music articles to the
Tampa Tribune, interviewing
none other than country music
legends Kenny Rogers, Jeannie C.
Riley and Jerry Reed.
Recently named as a
"MomExpert" for ClubMoth.com,'
Ferrer draws inspiration for her
literary works through her
experiences as a woman and a
mother. Her first book, a collection
of poetry about motherhood
entitled "A New Mother's Prayers,"
was published by Pocket Books in


1989 and successfully sold 50,000
copies.
In 1996 Ferrer published "I am
the Mother of Sons," a collection
of poetry inspired by her own
adventures as a mother of three
sons. Other' works include
"Dancing with my Daughter" and-
her latest book "She of the Rib:
Women Unwrapped."
Ferrer, once a resident of
Madison, currently, resides in
South Carolina with her family.

B-2 The Taco Times June 14,2006







2005 Quality



of the Cilt







S We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the
S quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable
supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment
process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is
supplied by 4 wells; these wells draw water from the Floridian Aquifer. Our water distribution system consists of 3 water
treatment facilities:

Mason Kelley Water Treatment Plant -713 N. Faulkner St.
Perry Water Works Treatment Plant 404 W. Leon St.
Well #3 pumping Station Leon St. & Faulkner St.

We are also supported by a 200,000 gallon elevated storage tank located on Baker St., a 400,000 gallon ground storage
tank at the Perry Airport and 2 chlorine Booster stations.

At these treatment facilities, source water is chlorinated for disinfection and fluoridated for Dental health purposes.
Source water at Mason Kelley WTP and Perry Water Works is also filtered for Iron removal and a polyphosphate is
added.

Polyphosphate is added to inhibit Iron, Manganese, and Corrosion.

In 2004, the Department of Environmental Protection conducted a Source Water Assessment of the Perry Water System.
These assessments were conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of
our wells. 'Potential sources of contamination identified include underground petroleum storage tanks. The assessment
results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at
Swww.dep.state.fl.us/swapp.

This report shows our water quality results and what they mean.

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Stephen Hollowell, City of
-Z Perry, 224 S. Jefferson St., Perry, FL 32347 at (850) 584-7940. We encourage our valued customers to be informed
about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held
ofl 2nd and 4" Tuesdays of each month at 6:30 p.tn. in the City Council Room.

k The City of Perry routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules,
V and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of out monitoring for the period of
January Iat to December 3 1' 2005. Data obtained before January 1, 2005, and presented in this report are from the most
recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.

In the table below you will find terms and abbreviations you might not be familiar with. To help you better understand
these terms we've provided the following definitions:

Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that's allowed in drinking water. MCLs are
set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.

Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no
known or expected risk to health .I/CLGs allon -/r a margin ofsafety.

Action Le ,'l le.4L The concentration of a contaminant that, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a
water system must follow.

Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water.
There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.

Maximum residi al disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which
there is no known or expected riskto health. MRDLGs do'not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to
control microbial contaminants.

Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to million parts by weight of the
water sample.

: Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/I) one part by weight qf analyze to 1 billion parts by weight of the
water sample.

Picocurie per liter(pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include riverg;'lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs,
and wells' As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals
and, in some cases, radioactive material, and -can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from
human activity.







Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems,
agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater
runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff,
and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of
industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormiwater runoff, and
septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which, can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining
activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain
contaminants in water provided by public water systems. FDA.,regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled
water which must provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some
contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More
information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection
Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. .

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-
compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ
transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly; and infants can be particularly at
risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water frjm their health care providers. EPA/CDC
guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological
contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

We at the City of Perry would like for you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment
process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any
questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call Stephen Hollowell at (850)584-7940.
