Some 12-14 government
agencies are involved in the

Traffic stops lead to drug arrests


In the never ending "war against
drugs in Taylor County," members
of the Perry Police Department
made at least four drug arrests last
week.
On Tuesday, PPD Ptl. Wesley
Cooper said he stopped a Dodge
Ram pick-up truck which had a
busted taillight.
"While approaching the driver, I
recognized him as the owner of the
vehicle, Matthew Todd Knight, 41.
"While Knight searched his
vehicle for the registration and
proof of insurance, I ran a check of
his drivers license, which came
back suspended for failure to pay
traffic fines.
"Knight said he did not know
that his license had been
suspended, so I told him I was
going to cite him for driving with
license suspended without
knowledge," Cooper said.
"As I explained to Knight about
the citation, I noticed that he was
acting very nervous, putting his
hands in and out of his pockets."


The Taylor County. Animal
Shelter remains closed at this time
to address issues related to a recent
outbreak of Parvo.
'!We would like to thank the
public for your continued., support
during our time of closure. We are
taking the appropriate steps to
eradicate our shelter of several
deadly viruses so that we can
continue to provide the quality of
service that our community and
our four-legged friends deserve.
We are modifying and upgrading
our facility 'to ensure a safer
environment for the .animals that
are in our care. We hope to be back
in full swing by early next week,"
officials said.
The shelter has also welcomed a
new member to its staff, Officer
Rick Pemberton.
"Having two certified animal
control officers will allow our
department to better serve the
citizens of Taylor County.. In
addition to their day-to-day duties,
our officers, will be routinely
patrolling the' county enforcing the
rabies law," Animal Control
Officer Carrie Tucker said.
"If you are cited for your animal
being unvaccinated, you will have
72 hours to provide our department
with verification of rabies
vaccination from a licensed vet.
Florida Statute 828.30 states: 'All
dogs, cats, and ferrets 4 months of
age or older must be vaccinated by
a licensed veterinarian against
rabies with a United States
Government-approved vaccine.
The cost of the vaccination must be
borne by the animal's owner'."

"Due to Knight acting in this
manner and also due to my prior
involvement with Knight and him
being caught with cocaine in his
possession, I asked him if there
was anything illegal in his vehicle
or on him," Cooper said.
Knight initially agreed to the
search, but as PPD Ptl. Dwight
Norris, who had arrived on the
scene, began the search, Knight
"changed his mind and said that he
did not want us to search the
vehicle."
The officers called TCSO K-9
Off. Harper Gibson and his canine
partner, Jeremiah.
Gibson led Jeremiah around the
truck in a "free air sniff" and the
dog "alerted on the driver side of
the vehicle where Knight had been
sitting.
"Knight was asked to empty his
pockets, and he did, reluctantly. I
saw a brown plastic piece of a bag
in his left pants pocket, but Knight
did not remove it," Cooper said.
"When I asked what was in the

bag, Knight said there was nothing
in the bag and that he was not
going to give it to us. I then
removed the plastic bag from his
hand and saw that it contained a
white rock like substance which
appeared to be crack cocaine.
"At that time, I asked Knight
what was in the bag and he said
that it was crack cocaine," added
Cooper.
Knight was placed under arrest
for possession of cocaine and
possession of a controlled
substance while operating a motor
vehicle. He was then transported to
the county jail.
Saturday morning, around
2 a.m., PPD Ptl. David Kelly made
a traffic stop on a truck for running
a stop sign.
"While I was speaking to the
driver and patting him down for
weapons, I saw the passenger
sliding something under the
passenger seat," said Kelly. During
this time, PPD Sgt. Jamie Cruse
arrived at the stop.
A license check was made on the
driver, Derek Miller, 43, and the
passenger, Jerry L. Hill, 52.
Neither of the men were wanted by
the law, according to Kelly.
"We then asked for consent to
search the truck, which was in
Miller's name," said Kelly. "I told
him what I had seen the passenger
do and that it was suspicious."
Miller gave consent for a vehicle
search.
"Cruse soon told me, that there
was a bag of suspected cocaine in
,the center console area of the
truck," Kelly added.
Both suspects were arrested and
charged with possession of cocaine
and possession of drug
paraphernalia.
The hext morning, a Perry
woman was stopped for running
the stop sign at the railroad
crossing on Duval Street.
It was learned that the driver,

Robin A. Cox, 41, had an active
warrant for VOP, stemming from
an original charge of DUI. Cox was
handcuffed and placed in PPD
Dwight Norris' patrol vehicle.
During a search of her vehicle,
Norris "discovered a blue bag with
white powder and a small plastic
straw with white powder residue,
inside the wooden center console."
Norris said he field tested the
white powder with a NIK cocaine
test kit, which came back
positive.
Cox was charged with
possession of cocaine and
possession of drug paraphernalia,
along with the active warrant.
Cox was read her rights, and
she then agreed to speak to
Norris.
"Cox admitted that she had used
cocaine before and stated that she
had probably left the bag and straw
in the center console. Cox wouldn't
say when she last used cocaine,"
Norris added.

areas. This marks the second time
in less than a month the state's
automated Total Licensing SN stem
encountered technical problems
issuing permits to hunters.
"We are embarrassed and
frustrated that the private %endor

let the hunters of this state down."
said FWC license and permit
director Bill Hunter.
The 'last time the system
experienced difficulties was % hen
alligator hunt permits went on

Like the alligator hunt permits,
S'recreatioAal use permits are issued
on a first-come. first-served basis.
Unlike alligator hunt permits,
*only one recreational use permit

Some of the recreational use
areas are in, high demand, and
permits have sold out quickly
every year regardless of issuance:
problems.
There still remain several

Love, the Potter Family
Especially Iris Lynn and Ethel

If tomorrow starts without me,
And I'm not there to see,
If the sun should rise and
find your eyes
All filled with tears for me;

wish so much you wouldn't cry
They way you did today,
While thinking of the many'things,
We didn't get to say,

I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too.

But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and
called'my name,
And took me by the hand,

And said my place was ready,
In heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind
All those I dearly love.
But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell from my eye,
For all my life, I'd.always thought,
I didn't want to die.


Mr. Foskey was preceded in death
by a daughter, Michelle Foskey.
Other survivors include: his
wife of five years, Aleta Foskey;
three sons, Michael, Timmy and
,- Please see page 8
mo -I m m.-


I had so much left to live for,
So much left yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible,
That I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays,
The goods ones and the bad;
I thought of all that we shared,
And all the fun we had.,
If I could relive yesterday,
Just even for a while,
I'd say good-bye and kiss you
And maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realized,
That this could never be,
For emptiness and memories,
Would take the place of me.
And when I thought of worldly things,
I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did,
My heart was filled with sorrow.
But when I walked through
heaven's gates,
I felt so much at home,
When God looked down and
smiled at me,
From His great golden throne,
He said, 'This is eternity,
And all I've promised you;
Today your life on earth is past,
But here life starts anew."
"I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last,
And since each day is the same way,
there's no longing for the past.
."You have been so faithful,.
So trusting and true,
Though there were times you did
some things,
You knew you shouldn't do.
"But you have been forgiven,
And now at last-you're free.
So won't you come and
take my hand,
And share my life with me,"
So when tomorrow starts without me,
Don't think we're far apart.
For every time you think of me,
I'm right here, in your heart.

WHAT WOULD JESUS DO? No. 11

JESUS WOULD NOT COVET MONEY
& MATERIAL POSSESSIONS

By Todd L. Baker
Jesus came to this world to save sinners. "And hearing this,
Jesus said to them, "It is not those who are healthy who need
a physician, but those who are sick; I did not come to call the
righteous, but sinners" (Mark 2:17). Paul attests to the same
purpose in 1 Timothy 1:15, "It is a trustworthy statement,
deserving full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the
world to save sinners, among whom I am foremost of all."
Jesus did not come to seek any material possession and He
did not covet the possessions of any of His neighbors.
Jesus spent His effort spreading His Father's word, not
building a physical empire for Himself to enjoy. Jesus could
have had all that He wanted on this earth in the physical sense
all He had to do was say the word, and it would have been
done. However, Jesus came to this earth to save sinners, and.
in the process He gave up all physical blessings except the
pure necessities. When a scribe declared to Jesus that he would
follow Jesus wherever He Went, Jesus' response in Matthew
8:20 was, Jesus said to him, "The foxes have otes and the
birds of the air have fiests, but the Son of Man has nowhere
to lay His head.."
When Jesus-delivered His sermon on the mount in Matthew
5, He did not praise those who were famous, powerful, or
rich in this life, but rather those who were poor in spirit, those
who mourn, the gentle, those who hunger and thirst for
righteousness, the merciful, the pure in heart, the
peacemakers, those persecuted for the sake of righteousness,
and those who are insulted because of Him; this hardly looks
like a list of qualities and characteristics that are valued in
our world! Jesus goes on to say in Matthew 5:.12, "Rejoice
and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the
same way thev persecuted the prophets who were before you.
Here Jesus tells us where our reward is, 'it is in heaven forE
those who have obeyed Him. In the hustle and bustle of our
hectic lives where we are always on the go, it is very easy tp
forget why we are here and what the Lord really wants for
us, which Peter states in 2 Peter 3:9, "The Lord is not slow
about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient
toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come
to repentance." Notice that nothing is said about building
our retirement. nest eggs, estates, bank accounts, the number
and size of our toys, how nice our clothes are, or any other
physical thing. This should speak volumes to us about where
our priorities should be.
Coveting money and material possessions is very energy-
and time consuming. We then have very little left to spend
pursuing the Lord and reaching out to others. If we followed
Jesus' instructions in Matthew 6, there would be far less
depression, frustration, anger, disillusionment, and lack of
direction in our-lives. Consider what Jesus says in Matthew
6:25, 31 34: 25"For this reason I say to you, do not be worried
about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink;
nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more
than food, and the body mnore than clothing?" 31 "Do not worry
then, saying, 'What will we eat?', or 'Whatwill we drink?', or
'What will we wear for clothing?' 32For the Gentiles eagerly
seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that
you need all these things. 33But seek first His kingdom and
His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
34So do not worry' about tomorrow, for tomorrow will care
for itself Each day has enough trouble of its own."
If we are to truly follow Jesus, we need to be sure our
priorities are in the right order. Have you put your "bank
account" above seeking the Lord? What reward are you
putting your heart into receiving, eternal life in heaven with
the Lord, or some physical thing that you can't take with you?

The Taylor County sail works marker reads, in part: "Taylor
County's 50-mile coastline and shallow coastal waters made it
ideal for manufacturing salt for the Confederacy., By 1862
works were in operation at Jonesville (near Adam's Beach) and
near the mouth of Creek. Trading on a barter basis, the region
furnished salt for adjacent counties and South Georgia." The
marker is located at the intersection of Keaton Beach, Road and
Highway 19.


Taylor County's treasure trove
of historic sites is being
re-discovered and a master map to
each "jewel" laid out.
The Taylor County Historical
Commission, formed late in 2005,
will open the application cycle for
its historical marker program Aug.
1. Up to seven sites will be
approved for markers this year.
"The county has agreed to fund
50 percent of the costs for the ,
markers. It will then be left to the
nominating group or individual to
secure sponsors for the remaining
costs," historical commission
Chairman Auley Rowell said.
"However, some sites may
qualify for grant funding, which
would cover 100 percent of
the cost of the sign," he
added.
To date, only four historical
markers! have been placed in the
county: one for the Perry Army
Airbase, a second at the site of the
old Taylor County jail, a third at
Keaton Beach Road relating to the
*coast's Civil War-era salt works
and a fourth in Steinhatchee.
Recommended sites must meet
the following criteria:
--The county historical marker
program commemorates facts,
persons, events and places
prominently identified with the
history and culture of the county,
region, state and/or nation.
--Eligibility requires that the
resource be at least 50 years old, or
the associated event have occurred
at least 50 years ago. The historical
commission may waive the 50-
year time period requirement in the
event of eception.al historical
significance and with 'a majorityy
vote in support of the time period
waiver.
--The historical commission will
not erect a marker commemorating
any individual who is still
living.
Application forms will 'be
available starting Aug. 1 at the


Taylor County Courthouse Annex
(administrative office) and at the
Perry/Taylor County Chamber of
Commerce.


*The 2006-07

nomination

cycle for Taylor

County's new

historical marker

program will

open Aug. 1.


According to Rowell, the
mission of the historical
commission is "to recognize
historic resources, persons and
events that are significant in the
areas of archaeology, architecture,
traditional culture and local,
regional, state and national history
by promoting and facilitating the
placement of markers at or near
sites of historical significance in
Taylor County."
These sites could include former
schools, towns, communities, forts
or trials.
"As part of the application
process, we must be given a
detailed location of the site. We'll
take this information and mark it
on a master map of the county
highlighting where, the markers
will be located," Rowell
said..
The historic commission is
comprised' of representatives
appointed by the county
commission, school board and city
council. Its members are: Auley
Rowell, Bryan Bethea, Wanda
Cash, Mae Jean Holton, Luke
,Murphy, David Goodman, Melody
Cox and Angela Castelucci.


The historical marker at the old Taylor County Jail 'details
Perry's founding dates and namesake. The former jail is the
oldest surviving public building in the county. It is now home -
to the law offices of The Bishop Law Firm and Smith, Smith &
Moore, attorneys at law.

AlV IV V V L w a V


Dear Editor:
I saw a sign the other day stating
that coal kills 30,000 people per
year. If true (I'm now sure how
such statistics are guesstimated),
that is awful. True, that is only one
ten-thousandth of the American
population, but if you happen to be
one of the 30,000 that is not good
news.
I got to wondering how this
compares with other causes of
death and was shocked to learn
that, according to the Journal of the
'American Medical Association,
435,000 deaths yearly are caused
by tobacco; 400,000 by poor diet
and physical inactivity; 85,000 by
alcohol consumption; 75,000 by
microbial agents; 55,000 by toxic


Dear Editor:,
Journalist Elizabeth Kolbert
spoke in Seattle stating the average
global temperatures are estimated
to rise five to eight degrees by the
eind of the century. She said, to give
us some context, during the last ice
age the average global temperature
was only 10 degree's cooler than
now." She's a great writerr and can
explain complex science clearly. .
Look over the United Nations
climate' site (http.//unfccc.int/
essenti ial background/feeling_the_

facts of your o%\n.' The abo e
remarks are quotes from the Grist
Magazine with the article written
By Umbra Fisk (05 Apr 2006 Grist
Magazine). .

the air and water of our planet are
all concerns of people globally.'
Scientific findings. discoveries and
predictions should not (can not) be
taken lighil..
In' n an Ancient Indian proverb it
states: "Treat the Earth well: it was
not given to you by your parents, it
"as loaned to you by your
children. We do not inherit the
Earth from our ancestors; we
borrow it from our children."


There are 67 counties in this
state (Florida ranks as the seventh
dirtiest state in the country) and'
Taylor County has the EPA rating
of being the 13th dirtiest county
amongst them. Is this an honor?
..Followed by Suwannee, County,
(14th). The top polluters in our
county are Buckeye and Qillman
products. Buckeye ranks first in
lead pollution.
Total environmental releases
(that is all air released toxins),is a
whopping one million eight

hundred and thirty eight pounds
per year (1,805,838).. Suwannee is

add to this pollution by:supporting

Madison and Jefferson counties'
that have virtually no pollution on
the EPA scale (or it is not being
reported).
Duval County, where Northside

dirtiest county in the state.
Granted they have lots of polluting

Amendment

would put land

use issues to

referendum

Dear Editor:
The Florida Supreme Court has
said voters in 2008 can decide on a
constitutional amendment that
would give citizens the final say
on growth and development
decisions. ,
Instead of living at the mercy of
a handful of commissioners,
citizens will be able to decide for
themselves--good or bad--how
they want their communities to
grow by a referendum. But, this
won't happen unless Florida voters
step forward right now.
The grass-roots group working
to get this amendment on the ballot
is Florida Hometown Democracy.
Organizers are working across the
state to get enough registered
voters to sign a petition to get the
amendment on the ballot. Their
website is like a breath of fresh air!
For more infoe information, go to the
website www.FloridaHometown
Democracy.com. You can
download a petition, with
instructions. You can also write
Florida Hometown Democracy,
Inc., P.O. Box 636, New Smyrna
Beach, FL 32170 or phone 561-
659-5754.
If elected officials had been
more reserved in approvals and
developers less greedy, this group
wouldn't exist. It will be
interesting when developers have
to convince an electorate of a
county or city that their proposal is
a marvelous idea, rather than a
majority of puppets sitting on a
board.

agents; 30,622 by suicide; and
26,347 by vehicles.
Canadian researchers reported
that at least 32,000 hospitalized
patients (and possibly .as many as
106,000) in the United States die
each year because of adverse
reactions to their prescribed
medications. This is medication
being administered by professional
health-care providers in a
controlled environment!
I also read that some 7,600
people die each year as a result of
using non-steroidal anti-
inflammatory drugs (aspirin,
ibuprofen, etc.).
Coincidentally, an article in
Time magazineand an editorial in
the Florida Times-Union reported


that about 59,000 people die each
year from inhaling secondhand
smoke.
Think of it: If you are a non-
smoker you are almost twice as
likely to be killed by your friends
and associates who smoke as you
are by pollution from coal-fired
plants. And you might be three
times as likely to die from your
doctor's prescriptions while you
are hospitalized.
The threat from older coal-fired
plants appears negligible when
compared to all' of those other ,
things that can kill us even if we're
very careful and live clean,
healthful lives. Now that I know.
this I won't worry about it.

Energy Center numbers


Dear Editor;
I've been reading with interest
the articles and letters in the Perry
newspapers about the proposed so-
called "Taylor Energy Center."
Energy for whom? Taylor County
doesn't need to be stuck with
somebody else's generating plant
and pollution and not get any
benefit out of the product. Don't
you understand that all profits will
go elsewhere and very little money
will accrue to the county!
As to construction and yearly
maintenance jobs, these are
handled by firms that specialize int
this work. They have their own
trained crews that move from job
to job. They seldom hire any local
labor.
I'm a retired engineer and a lot of
what I'm reading does not make
good engineering sense to me. For
instance, why does JEA need
nearly) 3,000 acres of land to site an
800 megawatt plant and coal yard?
What are they really planning to


build?
A nearby 3200 megawatt plant
(9 turbines) in Tennessee is sited
on 807 acres, and another 950
megawatt plant uses only 750 acres
and employs just 122 full-time
employees. An efficient 800
megawatt plant should require only
100-110 full-time employees.
How much coal will that plant'
bum? I've seen 130 cars per day
quoted. That would be about
13,000 tons of coal per day. At 800;
megawatts, that's over 16 tons of
coal per megawatt burned. What a
lot of pollution!
In comparison, an 950 megawatt
rated capacity plant in Tennessee
uses only 6,300 tons of coal per,
day and averages around 840 ;
megawatts per day in normal
production more than twice as
efficient.. -
. The prii of cgal .pp9 r ..,
increased 17.45% in 6 months.
"Cheap coal" is a thing of the past.
Why doesn't the power group buy


surplus power from other utilities
that produce it cheaper and more
efficiently than this plant?
Years ago the US turned from
heavy coal use to cleaner and-
cheaper natural gas because cities
were so polluted from coal and it:'-
made the people so sick. Then the:
price of gas went up and coal
prices went down. Now that coal is:
in demand 'again, the price of coal:
will soar, as will doctors' bills. .
Every week or so JEA (or Taylor'
Energy Center) comes .out with,"
different figures. But they have
failed to give the public the most:-:
important facts such as what JEA9?
will do to control carbon dioxide
emissions? They don't tell you that,
the more polluting type plant they.
want to build emits huge'
uncontrolled amounts of carbon
dioxide'. Carbon dioxide is the"
mos .polluting emission in the
world today. Crborin emissions

Some like it hot...

. what's up with them?
By SUSAN H. LINCOLN


I wonder how hot it is on Mercury in'
the summertime.-
Mercury, as you know, is the closest
planet to the sun and therefore the
hottest. Perry, as you know, comes
right between it and Venus giving us the'
number two status in the solar system
for heat production.
Or so it seems, in the summertime.:
I remember the summers of my
childhood 40 years ago. The heat was
different in the 1960s--it was
everywhere. You had little or no air
conditioning with which to compare the
outside air, so you merely looked for
the coolest spots.. I can tell you where it
was: under the mimosa trees in the
morning, in the back bedroom at noon,
under the sprinkler in mid-afternoon,
and under the sheltered carport before
suppertime.
After that, you turned on the attic fan
to cool off the house, and sat in lawn
chairs in the back yard waiting for the.
interior temperature to drop into the
80s.
Having learned survival skills during
my growing up years in Alabama, let me
suggest cool foods: watermelon on ice,
tomatoes out of the garden and then the
refrigerator, grape Koolaid enhanced
with ice cubes made from the same,
deviled eggs, cold fried chicken, or my
Father's favorite, bedtime buttermilk
with a leftover corn muffin. Hey, we
weren't too far removed from the cotton
fields, and had learned how to eat well
in order to feel well.
In the mornings, the ice cream man
(who was really just a teenager), came
down the street in his father's golf cart
and sold us orange .-push-ups. In the
afternoon, we traveled by bikes to "the
little store" where we purchased Coca-
Colas in real bottles along with
whatever candy we could afford--


depending .on. our current cash flow
from the neighborhood lemonade:
stand.
We played war over the hills.and dales,
captured June bugs during the day and"
lightning bugs at night. We played.-
Jacks, skated and stood in awe as the air
conditioner installation people pulled
up in my driveway.
It was ,a domino effect: almost
everybody in, the neighborhood was
installing central air conditioning. Mr.
Lee and his workers were friendly folk,
and they bought plenty of lemonade
from our stand while ripping up the
interior of our house in order 'to
centrally pipe in cool air.
Mother never complained about the
mess.
She dusted and swept.
She smiled at my father.
I know now that his life was
remarkably better after air conditioning
came to live with us.
It's funny though. After we had a
thermostat and a chosen temperature,'-
we still pretty much carried on our
normal routine. Mimosa trees in the-:
morning, board games in the back.
bedroom at noon, sprinkler in the:
afternoon and carport by. supper. After
we ate, we retired outside to listen to
the locusts and watch the sun go down.
But oh what a cold blast hit you at the
back door when lo you trod those steps
to bath and bed.
"This air conditioning was worth every
penny," I heard my mother say about
that...and nothing else.
When it turns hot, I call to check .on
her. And to remember the little' store
and the mimosa trees. And to verify for
the scientists why nobody in their right
mind would want to live in Mercury
when there are plenty of other planets:
around...with air conditioning.

toxics tracked by EPA combined.
The average lifetime diesel soot
cancer risk for a resident of Taylor
County is 1.in 12,786.
This risk is 78 times greater than
EPA's acceptable cancer level of 1
in a million.
Remember: Power plants are a
major cause of mercury, and
mercury travels throughout the
food chain in the water, the fish are
contaminated and then you become
contaminated, as well as birds,'
with mercury poisoning from
,eating the fish. White Albacore
Tuna (canned) is one of the -worst
canned fish you can consume.
The Florida Department of
Health, with the cooperation of the
DEP and the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Committee,
has issued the. following fish
warnings for our waters:
The Aucillia River, spotted
sunfish, largemouth bass, bowfin
and gar: should not be eaten more
than once a month by women of'


childbearing years or young
children and all others not more
than once a week.
The Econfina River, redbreast
sunfish, spotted sunfish:, same as
above for women and children
however for all others not more
than 2 per week. Large mouth bass,
bowfin and gar are in the same
category for eating as from the
Aucillia River.
The Steinhatchee River, spotted
sunfish: children and women no
more than 1 per month, all others
no more than 2 per week.
Largemouth bass, bowfin and gar,
women and children should not
EAT and all others not more than 1
per month.
Any of the following fish caught
in coastal waters should not be
eaten at all, Blackfin Tuna,
Crevalle Jack, King Mackeral,
Little Tunny, Great Barracuda and
all species of shark.
This data and more detail may be
obtained from "Your Guide to
Eating Fish Caught in Florida
Waters."
Just as laws are made for the


road, cleaner fuel, wear seat belts,
air bags and safety glass to protect
us, so should it be that laws for the
air we breathe and the water we
depend upon, for so much, should
be made as stringent as possible so
that future generations will not
suffer from our mistakes of feeding
giant corporations. Unfortunately
corporations and government when
allowed to "police their own" do
the minimal amount of tracking,
they take the road of least expense
for the road of high profits. When
the term "within legal limits" is
applied to emissions do you know
if it is on the high end of the scale
or the low?
It may give consumers a lower
electric bill, but a much higher
price is paid in health care and to
health care providers.
Clean energy: Global warming
solutions that create jobs are
needed so tell Congress to increase
funding for federal clean energy
programs. Our nation faces
looming environmental and
economic problems associated


with global warming. We should
be investing more not less in clean
energy technologies. President
Bush and the congress are expected
to cut back in the federal budget for
clean energy program in the fiscal
year 2007. Contact your
Washington, D.C., congressional
representative and urge him/her to
move America toward smarter,
cleaner energy for our future, by
doubling federal funds' for
renewable energy, not cutting it.
These excerpts were taken from
the Union of Concerned Scientists
newsletter the "Take Action" the
Summer and Spring 2006 issue.
Jobs: Year 2008 in the operation
phase there will be 3 hires, and 4
indirect hires. Indirect hires are not
plant affiliated; they are additional
hires in existing businesses:
(example: waiters, cashiers,
hotel/motel employees etc.).

cause destructive climate changes

The mercury from their coal
plant would poison the fish and
make people sick in our coastal
county where people come to fish?
I have read that this proposed plant
would emit 300 lbs. of mercury per
year. That's hundreds of pounds
more mercury than a state of the art
coal gasification plant would emit.
I have read that JEA has the
highest mercury emissions of any
power plants in Florida. All these
heavy emissions are the primary
reason no new coal burning steam
plants should be built, especially
an inefficient one like the JEA
group wants to build.
Why isn't this commission
insisting on the best available
technology, coal gasification? I
understand they passed a resolution
to that effect. If they are so in favor
of a polluting coal plant, they
should at least do the right thing

and be sure it's the least polluting
technology available today. I'm
waiting to see what they do on
that.
Why won't this county
commission let the public vote on a
project this big that will affect their
health? The commission does
make mistakes. This commission
whole-heartedly endorsed a
bombing range promoted by a
Stephen Alford. Where is Mr.
Alford today?
The commission balked at
letting citizens vote on the
bombing range, but finally allowed
a straw vote. You know the results


of that three to one against! Is the
commission afraid to allow citizens
a vote on this issue? This is not a
decision that should be made by
five people.
True, citizens should not vote on
emotions alone, but on facts. But
citizens are aware that the "facts"
on coal plants and energy keep
changing. Almost daily we read
that coal plants endanger our
climate and our health. With
technology changing so fast, their
coal plant will be obsolete by 2012
or 2014 maybe before they finish
building it.
Taylor County's economy is


forest and nature-based and has
been for over 100 years. The
citizens want to keep it that way.
They don't want more pollution to
destroy their way of life. God's
wild creatures need some place to
live!!
The public is smart enough to
know they don't want to be stuck
with an outdated highly polluting
coal plant for the next 60 years.
Just like they were smart enough to
know they didn't want their coast to
be bombed.
Let them have their say. Give
them a vote!

B-8 The Taco Times July 19, 2006

Gasoline's expensive,


but water's not endless:


IA i A A A A A A A A A A i A


reduce your usage and your bills


When Florida residents think of conservation, they .
probably think of gasoline. With gas prices
skyrocketing, some drivers are curtailing as well as
carpooling.
But the tips which follow deal with another kind of
conservation, and they are easy reminders of how to
curb residential water use, and lower your bills too.


- Wash only full loads in your dishwasher.
Automatic dishwashers use 20 gallons of water
per cycle, regardless of load size.
46 When you wash dishes by hand, don't leave
-the water running.
6 Do not use running water to thaw meat or
frozen foods.
6 Use the proper load setting when you use your
-washing machine.
6 Use your garbage disposal sparingly.
--Repair leaks at faucets indoors and out.
*-During basic maintenance or repairs, check
all pipes in order to prevent future leaks.


6 Water your lawn between the hours of 6 p.m.
and 9 a.m. The sun will not evaporate the water
as quickly as in the afternoon. A hearty rain


can eliminate the need for watering up to two
weeks.
4 Do not water during windy conditions.
6 Use a sprinkler timer. If you don't have one,
use the kitchen timer.
4 Let water sink in slowly. Water applied too
quickly runs off.
6 Use mulch in plant beds to control weeds and
retain moisture.
6 Use a broom, not a hose, to clean driveways
and sidewalks.
6 Make sure all the water from sprinklers falls
on your grass and shrubs, not on paved areas.


6 Lower the water level in the toilet.
6 Throw tissues and other trash in a waste
basket, not the toilet.
6 Avoid leaving the water running while brushing
your teeth or shaving.
4 Take showers instead of baths.
6 Replace your toilet or shower head with a low-
flow water-saving Mnodel.
46 Check the toilet for worn-out, corroded or bent
parts. Most replacement parts are inexpen-
sive, readily available, and easily installed.


A A A A A A A A A A


(4-Alk,


Congressman Allen Boyd

This week, Congress voted to
reauthorize the historic Voting
Rights Act of 1965. One of the
most significant pieces of
legislation enacted during the 20th
century, the Voting Rights Act
helped guarantee one of our most
fundamental rights-the right of
every citizen to participate in the
political process.'
The right to choose one's
representatives in the voting booth
is the basis of a free, democratic
society. Without a meaningful
vote, there can be no equality
before the law, no. equal access,
and no equal opportunity. Yet, for
a hundred years after the Civil
War, millions of 'African-
Americans were denied this
fundamental right, despite the 15th


Amendment to the Constitution
that prohibited the denial of the
right to vote on the basis of race
or color. Poll taxes, literacy tests,
and even physical violence were
used to deny African-Americans
their legal right to vote.
Signed into law by President
Lyndon Johnson on August 6,
1965, the Voting Rights Act
provides extensive protection to
minority communities by
ensuring that the right to vote is
fully protected. The success of the
Voting Rights Act has led to
significant political achievement
and greater minority representation
at all levels of government. The
reauthorization of this landmark
bill demonstrates our continued
determination to remove all voting
obstacles and safeguard the rights
of all Americans.
Since 1965, the Voting Rights
Act has been extended five times,
first in 1970, then in 1975, 1982,
1992, and now 2006. Changes
have included the requirement of
bilingual ballots and voting


assistance, thereby increasing the
act's scope to cover non-English
speaking minorities. In 1982, the
Voting Rights Act was amended
to protect the rights of voters with
disabilities. The most recent
extension this year reauthorized for
25 years key provisions of the
Voting Rights Act that were set to
expire in 2007. These provisions
prevent discriminatory voting
practices and require bilingual
ballots for those with limited
English proficiency. Our nation's
history is one of expanding rights,
and it is imperative that we adjust
our laws to reflect that.
The Voting Rights Act was one.
of the nation's most crucial civil
rights victories and memorializes
those who marched, struggled, and
died to secure the right to vote for
all Americans. While substantial
progress has been made in the area
of voting rights over the last 40
years, we must continue to create
a more just, fair, and equal
society. This week's w vote shows
our commitment to this goal.


Over Jan. -March figures

Buckeye expecting


Increase for quarter


-.-Buckeye Technologies Inc.
-announced Monday that it expects
itsjrofitability for the April-June
quarter will be slightly above the
level achieved in January-March
2006.
The company'anticipates it will
report revenue growth in the mid-
single digits versus both the
preceding quarter and the year ago
quarter. Buckeye's new initiatives
in the building products industry,
:UltraFiber 500(TM), and 'its
-recently upgraded specialty
cellulose'. facility) at Aifier itdia,
Brazil have. contributed to the
revenue growth. Additionally, net
-debt was reduced by $30.9 million
to $510.9 million.
_.-Bucke e Chairman John B.
-Crowe commented, "While we are
pleasedd that we are building sales-
fto both UltraFiber 500(TM) and
-at--our Americana facility, we are
:disappointed that the ramp-up at
-Americana did not meet our


expectations for the quarter.
Additionally, high manufacturing
costs. at our wood facility in
Florida had a negative impact on
earnings. As. we begin our fiscal
year 2007, our priorities are to
turn the higher revenues from new
initiatives into improved earnings
and to reduce costs across the
company."
Buckeye plans to announce its
fiscal year, 2006 and April-June
results on August 8, 2006 and has
scheduled a conference call at
10:30 a.m. EST, Wednesday,
August 9, 2006 to discuss these.
Buckeye, a leading manufacturer
and marketer of specialty fibers
and nonwoven materials, is
headquartered in Memphis,
Tennessee. Buckeye Technologies
currently operates facilities in the
United States, Germany, Canada,
and Brazil. Its products are sold
worldwide to makers of consumer
and industrial goods.
