For sewer system
steps up efforts
Police are still investigating a three-vehicle wreck which occurred Thursday afternoon at the intersection of U.S. 19 and
Jefferson Street. Several witnesses have reported seeing a fourth vehicle which might also be involved, according to the Perry
Police Department. .Personnel from the department; along with the City of Perry Fire Department and Doctors' Memorial
Hospital Emergency Medical Services, responded to the scene. Two of the drivers were transported to DMH for injuries suffered
in the crash. Traffic was snarled for sometime and vehicles which were unable to travel west on Jefferson through the
intersection were forced to turn north onto U.S. 19.
Steinhatchee is moving ever
closer to having its own sewer
system, but who will be in control
of it continues to stir debate both
here and in Dixie County.

Continued from page 1
SWA, however, moved forward
with its own sewer plans,
purchasing an existing private
sewer facility as a beginning.
Dixie County -subsequently
pulled out of talks and later SWA
representatives told Taylor
commissioners that Dixie County
would not allow them to cross the
river with sewer lines.
At last week's meeting, Dunn
told commissioners that Dixie
County had presented them with an
agreement to allow the group to
cross the river and, offer sewer
services in Jena.
After perusing the document
for several moments, the
commissioners were quick to point
out several, problems.
The section which prompted the
most criticism from the board was
one which states that SWA will not
require residents in Dixie County
to hook up to the system. Several
commissioners said most grants
and loans available for such
systems require mandatory
hookups and if they saw this
clause, SWA would be ineligible
for the funds.
Although he pointed out that the
commission has no control over
SWA, as it a private organization,
Bethea strongly urged Dunn to
refrain from signing the document.
He added that he still felt a joint
utility authority was the best
"We think they should be in it,"
"We don't disagree," Dunn said.
"They need you more than you
need them," Bethea added.
Dunn finished his presentation
by saying the first mile of pipeline
for the sewer project is in. The
second mile was expected to begin
the permitting process last week.
That section, however, is
planned to be the pipeline that
crosses the river. Dunn added that
he hoped to have the pipeline into
Dixie County before an estimated
400-500 housing units begin
construction in Jena.

"I went inside the bar to verify
that no one was there. It appeared
that nothing inside had been

small pieces of brown glass,
possibly from a beer bottle."

front door of the lounge and all
three, subjects entered the
premises and took several bottles

We know that he is watching us from above,
And we hope he knows he has all our love.
We really miss him a lot,
And he will never be forgotten.
He touched many lives in his short time of living,
He was the best, so loving and forgiving.
We didn't spend much time together,
But one day we'll be together, together forever
And no one will be. able to keep us apart,
Because we'll be'so close, almost as one beating heart.
We can't wait for that day to come,
And when it comes my heart will beat like a drum.
We'll be a little nervous to see our little bro,
But we're going to hug him and never let him go,
Because I don't ever want to lose him again.
We want us to be together until the very end.

WHAT WOULD JESUS DO?No. 15
PERMIT IT TO FULFILL ALL RIGHTEOUSNESS
By Bill Blue
Today, men have differing views over the necessity of baptism. Some
argue that baptism is necessary for salvation. Others argue that all
one must do to be saved is believe. The apostles' teaching on baptism
is clear. Peter said baptism saves you (1 Pet. 3:21), and is necessary
for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38). On one occasion Peter even
commanded believers to be baptized (Acts 10:48). Paul said that
baptism washes away, and frees us from, our sins (Acts 22:16; Rom.
6:6-8), allows us to put on Christ (Gal. 3:27), join His body (1 Cor.
12:13), and share in His death and resurrection by putting to death
our former sinful ways (Rom. 6:3-8). On one occasion Paul even re-
baptized disciples who only knew the baptism of John (Acts 19:5)
even though John's baptism was also for the remission of sins (Mark
1:4). The book of Acts describes multiple conversions involving
baptism, and none that do not (Acts 2:38-41; 8:5-13; 8:35-38; 9:1-18
& 22:16; 10:34-48; 16:13-15; 16:25-34; 18:8). Yet some men stilL.
argue against the necessity of baptism. What would Jesus do?
Jesus consistently preached and commanded the necessity of baptism
throughout His ministry..
Three different Gospels tell us Jesus began His ministry by submitting
to baptism (Matt. 3:13-17; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 3:21-22). Jesus did
not question the purpose or necessity of baptism. When John protested
that his own righteousness was inferior to Christ's, Jesus said, "Permit
it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness,"
and then He was-baptized (Matt. 3:13-15). If one wants to be more
like Christ, why wouldn't he follow Jesus' example and submit humbly
to baptism as Christ did?
Two of the possible reasons why people fail to follow Jesus'
commands and.exampies are that they either believe they are smarter
than God, or the simplistic nature of the gospel itself poses an obstacle
to obedience (1 Cor. 1:18-29). Shortly after beginning His ministry,
Jesus told Nicodemus, "unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he
cannot enter the kingdom of.God" (John 3:2-5). Is it that difficult to
understand the necessity of water baptism? Should wequestion what
the water actually accomplishes? Naaman had difficulties acceptifig
the simplicity of God's plan. When Elisha told Naaman that washing
seven times in the Jordan River would cleanse Naaman of his leprosy,
Naaman became indignant and initially refused (2 Kings 5:10-12).
"Are not the...the rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of
Israel? Could I not wash in them and be clean" (2 Kings 5:12)? In his.
arrogance, Naaman thought he was too smart to believe that washing
in a muddy river would cleanse him of his leprosy. By so thinking,
however, Naaman was actually saying that he was smarter than God..
Fortunately, Naaman had a servant who could see the foolishness in
not accepting the simple command. "My father, if the prophet had
told you to do something great, would you not have done it? How
much more then, when he says to you, 'Wash, and be clean'" (2 Kings
5:13)? Sometimes people like Naaman think too much when all they
have to do is accept what Jesus said, "unless one is born of water and
the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God" (John 3:5). "The
foolishness of God is wiser than men,,and the weakness of God is
stronger than men. [1 Cor. 1:25] But God has chosen the foolish things
of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak
things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty" .(1
Cor. 1:25, 27).
After His death and resurrection, Jesus said "He who believes and is
baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be
condemned" (Mark 16:16). "Go therefore and make disciples of all
the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son
and of the Holy Spirit" (Matt. 28:19). These are among the very last
statements Jesus said to all of the apostles at once prior to His
ascension. Jesus could have used this occasion to speak to His apostles
about anything and He chose to emphasize baptism. The Holy Spirit
could have inspired Matthew and Mark to emphasize something else
at the end of their gospel accounts, but He chose to emphasize baptism.
Despite all of man's arguments about the necessity of baptism for
salvation, one fact remains: no one can give a biblical reason not to
do it. Do we truly want to consider what Jesus would do, ahd then do
it, or would we rather, like Naaman, question the simplistic and easy
nature of God's command? If we truly wanted to follow Jesus'
example, we would humbly submit to baptism to fulfill His plan for

Council eyes pooling
efforts for healthcare
Congressman MAlen Boyd recently hosted a meeting %with the
District Healthcare Council to discuss local healthcare issues and
concerns, including federal appropriation requests and rural hospitals
in North Florida. "-:-
The council is'comprised of 24 -1embers from 16 counties across
North Florida. including two representatives from Taylor.
"Access to quality. affordable healthcare is a critical part of
Amencan life." said Boyd. "Altho.gy.much more needs to be done
in Washington, there is more that wO can do at home as well. It is m.
hope that the District Healthca'e Council will start thinking
regionally. so the counties can conime together and pool their resourLes
to improve the overall quality of heilthcare in North Flonda."
At the meeting. Boyd had two' mailn objectives for the District
Healthcare Council. The first objetilve was for the council to focus
on regionalized problem solving. .Up'to this point, Bo.d had asked
the counties to focus on their individual concerns. However, at this
meeting, he encouraged members to consider the healthcare concerns
of surrounding counties as well. L.

Health impact study raises 'concerns'
Back in June I expressed
concern to the county
commissioners about the quality of
the "Health Impact Assessment of
the Taylor Energy Center" being
purchased for $30,000 by the
Ta lor County Development
Authority. They agreed to look into
this expenditure as soon as the
director returned from his trip to
Vermont. This never happened.
l read the first deliverable and
agide with the health department
director--it is a baseline study,
using information available on
internet websites easily obtained,
at no cost. TCDA has committed
to paying $30,000.
Ny concern stemmed from
analyzing the assessment done by
the same company for the
Madison/Jefferson County health
departments. I was shocked at the
poor quality and the lack of-"
consideration of pollution effects
on children, elderly and at-risk
populations. The particulate
matter risk assessments used in
that study were based on middle
aged people, not children 'or
elderly. All-cause mortality was
used rather than specific disease
causes of death.
When I called the company with
whom TCDA contracted, Healthy
Development, one of the partners
told me the Taylor County
assessment would not address
health impacts from mercury,
particulate matter or carbon
dioxide emissions as they "had
covered those subjects in 'their
Rapid HIA for Madison/
In addition. I learned that' "'it
would be outside the scope" of the
assessment to evaluate the
combined chemicals released into
the air by both Buckeye and the
proposed plant. It is unbelie able
that a health impact assessment in
Taylor County would not consider
an existing major source of air and
water pollution. Further, I learned
that only 10 individuals (out of.
over 19,000 residents) were going
to be interviewed for their survey
of citizen concerns in the first
segment released Monday. .
I asked both the company and
TCDA to address over 22 specific
questions and concerns I had about
the assessment. Neither responded,
except to comment that having to
answer questions slowed them
If TCDA truly wanted to guard
- the health of our citizens over the
60+ year lifespan of an 800-
megawatt pulverized coal plant,
they would seek the highest quality
health impact assessment possible.
They would gather information
already available onh the negative
Effects of coal plant emissions,
If this is to be a study of the
"Health Impact of the Taylor
Energy Center," it must 'evaluate

ages and health conditions, over

insurance benefits possible for
employees of the proposed plant;.

The second objective was to push the counties. to work more closely
with the business community, and state and local agencies, and make them
active participants in achieving the healthcare goals of Nofth-lFlorida.
Boyd formed the District Healthcare Council in 2005 to tackle
healthcare issues locally., Each county was given the task of choosing a
representative to serve on the District Healthcare Council. Representing
Taylor County are County Commissioner Clay Bethea and Rick Brown of
Doctors Memorial Hospital.
"The District Healthcare Council assembles people from all different
professions and points of view so that the discussions and solutions will
be comprehensive and representative of our unique district." Boyd stated.
"By bringing the district together, we can better serve the healthcare needs
of North Floridians." .
