land parcel

The Taylor. County Commission
agreed last week to examine
purchasing some eight acres of
land near the site of the proposed
Steinhatchee boat ramp.
Commissioners voted to mox e
forward .with environmental
studies to determine whether the
land is suitable for a boat ramp and
parking as well as negotiate a price
with the property oi ners.
In April the board chose the site
after the Steinhatchee Boat Ramp
Conrruncee detailed a two-phase
plan to create a basin, boat ranmp
and park.
According to the plan, 'the ramp
will be located at the canal on the
east side of the old Woods Marina
site, which is on Second Avenue.
between Third and Fourth streets.
The existing canal will be dredged
into a new public access canal.
The first phase of the plan
includes dredging the canal and
putting in a one-lane boat ramp

According to Lafayette County
Sheriffs Office Cpt. John Young,
emergency rescue services were
called to the Ray home in Mayo
March 20.
When medical personnel
arrived, a 'seven-week-old baby,
Bailea Leann Ray, was
unresponsive and deputies were
called to the scene. Young
explained that medical services in


Lafayette, as many other counties,
run a two-person crew. When a'
patient codes (stops breathing), the
two attendants are needed in the
back of the emergency vehicle, and
a deputy is called to drive.
The baby was flown to Shands
Gainesville Hospital, but did not
survive. Her body was sent to the
medical examiner's office for an
autopsy and their findings were
reviewed by a grand jury earlier

Keaton Beach.
That \Nas a portion of the
information Project Manager Chuck
Olson shared % ith members of the
Taylor Count%' Development
Authority,. the Chamber of
Commerce and others last week at
Hampton Inn.
Olson said his team of some 50
scientists, engineers and other
experts is currently working 'on
."avoidance and minimization" issues
and hopes to have permits to begin


construction "sometime next year."
The project will center around a
marina basin that will include
numerous. wet slips and other
commercial enterprises as well ,as a
six-lane,' 400 parking space public
boat ramp.
Olson said the project will impact
about 125 acres of Dr. J. Crayton
Pruitt's 3,780 taxable acres along the
Taylor County coast.
"We believe in our hearts and
minds that we are doing something
positive for Taylor County," Olson
said.'
Olson said he estimates it will cost
$700 to $800 million to construct the
development. In addition to the
public boat ramp, Olson said there
are plans to provide space for a


this month.
The indictment for Ray reads, in
part, "The Grand Jurors of
Lafayette County charge that
Jeffery Daniel Ray on or about the
20th day of March, in Lafayette
County, unlawfully and while
committing the felony of
aggravated child abuse upon
Bailea Leann Ray, a child, did
murder her by striking, beating,
shaking, or otherwise traumatizing

school as well as a courthouse annex.
The developer said one of his major
issues will be installing a two-mile
channel into the gulf from the marina
,basin.
The 100-foot-wide channel will
impact seagrass beds in the area and
will require the transplanting of
those grasses to other areas that have
been disttirbed, he said.
* "Right now we have helicopters
flying the coast looking for sea grass
beds that have been disturbed,"
Olson said. "We have hired a world-
renowned re-planter of seagrasses to
help us."

means to the Grand Jury unknown,
thereby inflicting upon her, mortal
wounds and- injuries...and she
died."
In a second count, "The Grand
Jurors further charge that Jeffery
Daniel Ray, did then and there,
commit an aggravated battery
upon Bailea Leann Ray and/or did
torture or maliciously punish her
and/or did knowingly and willfully
abuse her and in doing so, caused
great bodily harm and/or
permanent disability to her."
Young said he understood that
Ray moved back to Perry shortly
after the death of his daughter,,
along with his wife and their two
and one-half-year-old son, whom
the state later removed from their
care.
After the Grand Jury's
indictment, Ray was arrested at a
Granger Quarters address by
Taylor County Sheriffs Office
deputies Rusty Davis, Robert
Lundy, Buddy Lee, Bryan Hayden,

Loud music leads to drug bust


A man was arrested and placed
in jail Sunday afternoon for
possession of illegal drugs after
police stopped him for playing
music too loud in his vehicle.
Perry Police Department Ptl.
Wesley Cooper said he could hear
music coming from the vehicle
more than 25 feet away, so he got
behind it to perform a traffic
stop.
I "The vehicle suddenly passed a
slower moving vehicle which was
in front of it in a no passing zone,"
said Cooper. "I had to activate my
blue lights several times, but the
car made several turns before
coming to a stop."
Cooper said he identified the

driver as Allen Griffin, 26, who
told him that he did not possess a
valid drivers license. Dispatch
confirmed this and Griffin was
arrested 'for driving while his
license was suspended.
Cooper said he then checked the
passenger, who was identified as
Sean Christopher Shine, 23.
"Shine was told to exit the
vehicle in order for a search to be
conducted," said Cooper. "Upon
exiting the vehicle, I explained that
I was going to conduct a pat him
down for weapons before the
vehicle search was conducted.
"As I patted Shine down, I felt a
large mass in his right pants.

- .., .


suspected it to be some type of
illegal drugs, so I asked Shine what
it was.
"He said that what I felt was
. cannabis," said Cooper. "The item
was removed from his pocket and
eight bags of marijuana were
found."
Because of the way the illegal
drug' was packaged, and the
quantity, "it has been my
experience that the intended
purpose was for the cannabis to be
sold."
Shine was then arrested and
charged with possession of
cannabis within 1,000 feet of a
church, with intent to
sell.


The partners behind the Taylor
Energy Center are studying the
county's recent counter-proposal
for 'community contributions
totaling some $170 million over
the next 30 years.
That's according to a letter sent
to County Attorney Conrad Bishop
from TEC Project Manager Mike
Lawson.
"The TEC owners believe our
offer would provide significant
economic benefit to the citizens of
Taylor County and, as structured,
would provide for the distribution
of those benefits to an
appropriately broad constituency
of citizens through a funding
allocation that includes Taylor
County, the City of Perry and the
Taylor County School B.oa-rd.'
Lawson said in the letter.
"We do recognize though the
Taylor County Board ,of County
Commissioners is the appropriate
body to address any discussions,
among public agencies in Taylor'
County. regarding this distribution
of community contribution funds
received from TEC."
Authored by Commissioner
Malcolm Page, the commission'sn
counter-proposal was similar to the
package presented by TEC
representatives in May. The
original proposal was negotiated
with Commissioner Daryll Gunter
and Bishop representing the
county.
I The new package would result
in the same total of money over 30
years--approximately $ 17')0
million--but the manner of
delivery was changed.
The new proposal consists of an.:
immediate $100,000 contribution;
to Taylor Technical Institute for.
training programs; a $10 million.
endowment (which would result in
approximately $500,000 annually
in interest); a $2 million annual
contribution during the four-year
construction. period; and a $3.5-
million annual contribution once
the plant goes into operation for 30


years (increasing each year by
either the consumer price index or
2.5 percent, whichever is greater).
After 30 years, the annual
contribution would be equal to the
property taxes owed on the plant if
the partners were not tax-exempt.
"Because we intended for our
first offer to meet the board's 'best
possible offer' criteria, we made a
special effort to obtain certain
prior approvals from the project
participants before the proposal
was released," Lawson said.
"We wanted to be able to assure
the board that no additional
"authorizations would be needed if
the offer proposed to the board was
deemed acceptable. The new
proposal from the board requires
an economic commitment
considerably higher than the TEC
owners have been authorized to
offer, which is cause for concern.
Nevertheless, we are studying your
new proposal carefully and hope to
provide the board with a specific
response shortly."

would continue the canal across
Second Avenue (which will be
replaced by a bridge) to county-
owned land and spring behind
Second Avenue and create a basin
to hold boats while people put in
and take out.
The plan, however, hinges on the
ability of the county to acquire a
nearby property for adequate
parking.
At the meeting in April,
Commissioner Clay Bethea, whose
district includes Steinhatchee, said
he and the boat ramp committee
were in talks with the .property
owners to acquire the land. He also
said a nearby developer might be
able to help the county acquire the
land.
Last week's discussions began
when Earle Greene, chairman of
the boat. ramp committee and
member of the newly organized
coastal committee, urged the board
to continue moving forward with
the project, adding that the
property was now available.
"This should not be viewed as
discretionary," Green said. "It is
necessary.
"Securing this property is
absolutely necessary. Without this
property, all we would be able to
do is a band-aid fix at best," he

said. "Now is not the time for
passivity."
According to Greene and
Bethea, the current asking price is
approximately $2.4 million.
Commissioners discussed earlier
this month a Florida Community
Trust land acquisition grant which
might be used for the Steinhatchee
project. Bethea, however, told
commissioners that the grant's
requirements for setting aside a
section of the property for
conservation would not allow


enough land to complete the
project.
He added he had been in talks
with Suwannee River Water
Management District as well as
state and federal representatives
about possible funding options.
Bethea then made a motion for
staff to do analysis on the properly
and to begin negotiations with the
property owners. Commissioner
Malcolm Page seconded.
"I realize we need a boat ramp in
Steinhatchee," Commissioner Pat


Patterson said, but she balked at
the $2.4 million price tag. She also
expressed concern that county staff
would be pulled away from other

to Madison for luncheon


By CHERYL GREGORY
Publicity
The August luncheon meeting
of the Roseheads was held
Saturday, Aug. 26, at 11:30 a.m.
at the One Eleven Grill in
downtown Madison. .
For the occasion, tables were
covered with white tablecloths,
and places marked by red napkins;
bud vases held greenery and Red
Hat accents. A brunch/lunch Red
Hat menu was at each place
setting. Debi Limoges and
Martelle Shiver formed the August
committee; there were 16 ladies
attending--14 Red Hatters (50 and
older) and two Pink Hatters (under
50).
Limoges rang the Red Hat bell
and welcomed everyone. Barbara
Patrick and Debbie Beach shared
details of their Red Hat cruise to
Alaska earlier this month. They
met Sue Ellen Cooper, founder of
the Red Hat Society and Queen
Mother of all chapters, and Linda
Murphy, the vice Queen Mother.
It was Linda Murphy that Sue
Ellen Cooper gifted with a red hat
in 1998, thus beginning the Red
Hat Society.
Patrick and Beach ate dinner at
their table several times during the
cruise. Other highlights were a
welcoming reception, a pajama
breakfast, a tea and a farewell
party. The shore tours were great.
Two of the many places they
visited included Juneau, the capital
of Alaska, and, Victoria, British
Columbia. They also reported on
watching whales in the ocean. An
album of photographs was shared
with those in attendance.


Queen Mother Hattie Adams is shown in front of the One Eleven Grill with Martelle Shiver and

Bulldogs drop opener to Chipley


A couple of big plays plus
several costly turnovers hurt
Taylor County's chances of
winning Friday night in Chipley
as-the Tigers came out on top of
the Bulldogs 23-10 in the season
opener for both schools.
The Bulldogs were in the
contest much of the night but
* gave up two big plays plus several
ill-timed fumbles that proved too
costly.
Taylor County showed they
could move the ball as the Bulldog
offensive line opened holes for
runningback Bryckoski Jackson
who had 80 yards on the night on
17 carries.
Bulldog quarterback Marquis
Ellis was also accurate at times
completing 7 of 19 passes for 83
yards and a touchdown.
Freshmnan kicker Ty Crowley
proved to be an offensive threat as
he booted a 45-yard field goal in
the first quarter plus hit several
'kickoffs inside the 5.
The Bulldog defense had
numerous big plays and were
stingy up the middle for much of
the night but gave away,a couple
of big plays and were vulnerable
on theoutside. -
Taylor County opened the game
with 'A booming kickoff by
Crowley to the Tiger two yard line
and after a couple of penalties

The Tigers completed two
passes coupled with an 18-yard run

the Taylor 29.
But the Bulldog defense stiffened
with 'Tyler DuBose stuffing one
run for no gain followed by Chad
Ellis stripping the quarterback
,from the ball with Taylor County
recovering at their own 38. -
Three plays netted only, five
yards and after a fake punt play
was nullified due to a penalty,
Crowley's short punt.put Chipley
in pl\ jat their ,, n -I4S.
Again, the Taylor defense held
forcing a fourth down punt near
midfield but the 'Dogs mishandled
the punt and Chiplev recovered at
.the Bulldog 28. .
SA 20-yard run set the Tigers up
with a first and goal at the 8 but
* the Chipley runner was stuffed for
:a two-\ ard loss by Jake Meacham
:and Jackson. That was followed by
:an incomplete pass and a holding
penall forcing Chipley to settle
for a 31-yard field goal to put
them on top 3-0'with 4:18 left in
the first quarter.
Chad Ellis returned the ensuing
'kick 30 yards.to the Bulldog 40
:setting. up Jackson's best series of
the night.
: The 'sophomore running back,
clipped off runs of 5, 14, 2, 5 and
_9 yards before penalties halted the.
_drive forcing Taylor to settle for
Crowvley's 45-yard field goal.

Revival meeting Sept. 4


By B.D. WILLIAMS
"You Tell on Yourself"
You tell what you are by the
friends you seek, by the way you
employ your leisure time, by the
use you make of dollar and dime.
You tell what you are by the
things you wear, by the spirit in
which you burdens bear, by the
kind of things at which you laugh,
by recordings on the phonograph.
You tell what you are by the way
you walk, by the things of which-
you delight to talk and by the
manner in which you bear defeat,
so simple a thing as how you eat.
From the books you choose from
a well-filled shelf in these ways
and more, you tell on yourself So
there's really no particle of sense,
in an effort to keep up false'
pretense.

PERSPECTIVES



Local residents capture Keaton


waterspout from several angles


Nature routinely puts on a show
at Keaton .Beach, but it was
unusually dramatic on Aug. 19
when a waterspout appeared on the
horizon.
The twister could be seen for
miles in all directions and several
people from Hodges Park to Dekle
Beach quickly grabbed their
cameras to capture this spectacle
of nature.


Most waterspouts seen along the
coast of Florida are "fair weather"
waterspouts and are relatively
weak when compared to tornadoes,
usually with winds less than 30
mph.
Tornadic waterspouts, while less
common, are stronger and can pose
a serious danger to boaters.
Taylor County Emergency
Director Brianne Hoover reminds


boaters to be alert for a dark, often
greenish sky, a wall cloud and
large' hail, as they can be warning
signs that a waterspout may form.
"Have a weather radio with a
warning alarm tone and battery
back-up to receive warnings,"
Hoover said. "If planning a trip
outdoors, listen to the latest
forecasts and take necessary action
if threatening weather is possible."

A number of people from the Keaton Beach area caught photographs of a large
waterspout which formed off the coast Sunday, Aug. 19. (1) Daniel Cote captured the
waterspout while picnicking with his family at Hodges Park in Keaton Beach. (2,3) Vann
Basco and his wife took these photos while they watched the twister skirl the coast from their


balcony at Keaton Beach Landing. (4) Local resident Ruth Harvey provides a third angle, this .

B-2 Taco Times August 30, 2006


Read it and weep?



No, read it and vote


After reading today's election
supplement, you simply cannot say:
"I don't know anything about the
candidates." It features a wealth of
information about candidates and
their views on many issues affecting
Taylor County. Plus, it's interesting
reading. So please read, study and
make your plans to vote in next
week's election.
On Tuesday, Sept. 5, your vote in
the primary election IS IMPORTANT
because:
It will determine who our county
judge will be. This is a non-partisan
election for a county-wide office with
a four-year term. Being county judge
is a huge responsibility and selecting
the right individual is certainly.
worth a trip to the polls.


Also, your vote on Tuesday will
declare the winner of the school
board seat for district 1. If you
believe that our children are our
future, then this vote is clearly a vote
for our fut.ture--worth a trip to the
polls.
Your other ballot choices on
Tuesday will set the stage for the next
electionri. Both Democrats and
Republicans will select their
candidates, with the winners facing
off inl November. Ensuring quality
leadership' for our community is
surely worth a trip to the polls.
Voting is both a privilege and a
responsibility. Please take
responsibility for the privileges you
enjoy: read, study, ask questions
and then vote.

Letters to the Editor


Children should outweigh 'winning'


SDcir Editor: ":,
When in the course of making a
stand in our family courts,
attorneys and judges are morally
and legally bound with the duty to'
protect children. The needs and
overall welfare of the children of
divorcing parents are given very
clear and specific attention under,_.
the law in Chapter 61 of Florida
Statutes.
When attorneys are making a-
case for the post divorce care of
children, attorneys must not
proceed upon the same basis as
with division of "property" and
rights associated with Property;
children are not property.
Unless there is clear evidence of
illegal conduct such as violence in .
the home, a prior felony conviction
or abuse, an attorney should never
propose a situation that has the
potential to deny either parent
liberal, and meaningful contact'
with the minor children.
Yet this does occur, however, on
occasions not as a rule, but the law
is especially clear when a parent
has made it very clear that they
have intentions to relocate to a
different state than the original
home of the children.
No attorney worthy of their seat
as an officer of our courts should,
ever allow "winning" to take
precedence over the needs of


children of a tender age to have the
best opportunity to spend good
meaningful contact time with both
parents.
After all it is about the children's
needs not the egocentric wishes of
one parent or the other, or the
statistical win record for an
attorney. ..
Attorneys--not the judges--
should set themselves as the
primary shield for children,
especially when the children are of
a tender age.
First: By advising their client
that they not the children are the
client and that the law protects the
rights of, children and the
noncustodial parent., ,
Second: By refusing to pursue
mean spirited attacks against the
parent of the opposition without
clear evidence of a cause worthy of
prosecution by the criminal court
system.
Any attorney% who is incapable
as a low-er officer of the courts of
holding such a line in order to
protect children's rights to know
and, love both parents, should
never pursue or propose to take a
seat in the highly esteemed office ,
of a judge.,.
Just as their deal' carelessly with
the dangerous third rail in a child's
life (parental estrangement), they
could not be expected to be of any

better conduct as a judge
The claim of "non-partisanship"
made by some attorneys who want
a be a judge, would not fitly
describe them especially when by
practice they have failed the test of
holding the line where the rights
and welfare of children are,
concerned.
Not to mention the parents who
suffer and are disparaged of a
continual and- meaningful
relationship with their minor
children of a tender age.
Shall we elect attorneys to the
office of judge under a -flag of
"non-partisanship" who actually
appear to be beholding to an
agenda that has proved many times

Letters to the Editor

To child custody problems


Writer attempting to


'open public's eyes'


CHILDREN
Continued from page B-2
prosecuting a criminal case and
presenting a civil divorce case and
with good conduct before our
courts.
Such an attorney must need to
save their time and money and
reconsider making a run for the
office of judge.
We need to elect people to the
office of a judge who are willing to
take the time to do their own
writing, carefully reading and
consideration of a case and the
laws prior to making decisions that
run the potential of wrecking the
lives of children and parents.
I'm just a layman, sitting here
making use of a word processor for
help against misspelled words by
hunt and peck typing, attempting
to make a point before the open
eyes of the public.
This point comes out of my own
personal experiences, of which the
most terrible is that Aug. 28, this
year will mark the 48th month
since I have seen, held, talked to or
had any meaningful information
conveyed to me about my children,
and yes who are yet of a tender age
and as of now I have no real
address for their location. This
situation exists partly because of
the actions of an attorney who
holds at least part of the blame for
allowing/propagating a "N. 0. W."
agenda, where a father's right and
children's needs to know their
father is at best summarily cast
aside.
Most divorced mothers would
gladly welcome the frequent
interaction of their child's father
with his children. In most cases if a
man were to continue to maintain
such disparaging actions as to keep
children from visiting their mother,
his attorney would likely disown
him and yield to the, court in a
- cdnteipt'cae, 'ne'er the less fi
wouldn't take "48" months to
resolve.
Most likely a father who
rejected the order of the court to
allow visitation would be in prison
in less than 12 months.
Nope an attorney who promotes
or protects such actions could not
be considered a "non-partisan"
candidate for the office of judge.


The judges who presently hold
seats in this county are from the
"old school."
But in this case the old school
does not mean, old and worn out.
What it does mean is that they
come from a time when not so long
ago, judges and attorneys stood on
their own, and studied to have the
ability to compose their arguments
and in a time when a poorly
written petition would be rejected
for a rewrite.
These old school attorneys and
judges helped to write and enact
the laws that protect us today, laws
with titles like, "(ss. 61.501-
61.542) Uniform Child Custody
Jurisdiction and Enforcement
Act."
The main trouble with the
condition and conduct of our youth
today is said to be due to a lack of
or a failure to parent. In many
circumstances by one reason or
another caring, loving parents are
disallowed the right to parent their
children.
The textbooks on human
development are loaded with
ailments associated with adults
who as children were a product of
broken homes or when one parent
or ,the other was rendered
ineffective, No parent without
legal cause should ever be allowed
to sequester children away from
their other parent.
The laws of the State of Florida
and this country are very explicit
where this is in consideration, yet
it goes on frequently and in some
cases with impunity. I am
convinced that unless attorneys
take the nobler stance of absolutely
refusing to argue in favor of parent
and child estrangement as a
practice, this problem is going to
wax worse.
Keep the. wise and careful
judges, let others spend time on the
vine to mature for a better- day,
v \ heh' they' niay ibe better' able to 't v-
rightly divide in the fields of the
law and ethics, especially where
our children are concerned and not
necessarily be measured by the
total number of successful .case
"wins" in our over burdened courts

but by the nobility of their
character.

Louise "Sonny" Parker Jr.
(1) The current Taylor County '
Commission has taken the position
of supporting the Taylor. Energy
Center in spite of some vocal
opposition. Do you concur with the
commission's stance or do you,
support another position?
'I concur with the commission's
position. My experience with
plants of this nature is positive in
many aspects. Most of the'
objections 'raised to date are
inaccurate and voiced by a
minority of residents.
.(2) Plans for new housing
developments--especially those
along our coast--are starting to


become quite frequent here. Do you
believe the county is dealing with
this issue properly or do you have
other ideas?
One of the major concerns I
ha'e with coastal development is
the effect it has on the sea grass
sanctuary currently occupying
most of our coast. The nutrient
load from homes already 'is having
detrimental effects on grasses and,
the marine populations that depend
on them. Sewer infrastructure is a
critical component necessary to
protect this valuable natural
resource. Once that is in place,
boating traffic will need to be more
aggressivelN monitored to prevent
scarring and destruction of the sea
grass beds.
,,(3) The current county manager
has announced his: intentions to
retire. Do you believe we need to
hire a professional county manager
or can the commission' operate the
county themselves? ,
*;*'Since Jack Brown became
county manager and now county
commissioner, the management of
the county operations has taken a
great step forward. Prior to those,
commissioners interfering in day-
to-day operations was problematic
and resulted in favoritism and
bickering among the commission.
The manager position with a
qualified individual occupying that
position. with the good of the


count\ at heart. greatly benefits the
function of counts government.
(4) A recent study indicates many
of Taylor County's citizens lag
behind the state average in many
categories such as health care;
income, education and. healthy
lifestyles. What would you do to
help improve these statistics?,
Having a local hospital should
help to address the issue
surrounding health care. Indigent
care is certainly a serious burden
on our local hospital and has taken
funding that could have been used
elsewhere to enhance local care.
Having a local assisted living
facility would certainly enhance
our local position as well. Income
level for our county is below the
state average but is above .most of
the surrounding counties because
of our local industries. Education
is a major concern, but is
something that is really out of our
hands. UF bureau of statistics
reports flat the area (including our
county) has a functional illiteracy
rate of 45 percent that certainly
affects the work force and business
recruitment. Healthy lifestyles are
related to education,, social'
traditions, earning power, religious
activity and many other variables.
Hopefully as we get older, we get
wiser and adopt a more healthy,
lifestyle. I'm not sure there is too
much government can do about it
except vocalize the need for it.

(1) The current Taylor County
Commission has taken the position
of supporting the Taylor Energy
Center in spite of some vocal
opposition. DoQyou concur with the
commission's stance or do you
support another position?
I do concur with the' current
commission based upon the
information that I have right now.
I believe that industry is important
for our-- county to provide good
paying jobs and benefits.
Our. county loses talented
individuals each year because they
are leaving Taylor County to seek
employment in order to provide for
their families. It is the job of the
commission to protect and serve
the citizens of Taylor County and I
believe that industry with good pay


and benefits is a way to better oui-
community.
(2) Plans for new housing
developments--especially those
along our coast--are starting to
become quite frequent here. Do you
believe the county is dealing with
this issue properly or do you have
other ideas?
I believe that the county is
dealing w ith the issues the best that
the', can. They have, made strides
to hire a planning coordinator, this
would take, some of the pressure
off of the county staff, and allow
them to do the job they were hired
to do. Developments are coming
and we need to have, a strategic
plan in' place for them. I believe.

Roy Doug Cruce'
(1) The current Taylor County
Commission has taken the position
of supporting the Taylor Energy
Center in spite of some vocal
opposition. Do you concur with the
commission's stance or do you
support another position?
I believe there should have been
more research into the
environmental issues. The voice of
the majority of the people should
be heard and. acted on by the
commissioners elected f6r and by
the people. Majority rules.
(2) Plans for new housing
developments--especially those"


along our coast--are starting to
become quite frequent here. Do you
believe the county is dealing with
this issue properly or do you have
other ideas?
I have not researched the issues
on the environment at our beaches,
but Taylor County needs growth
for our-community.
(3) The current county manager
has announced his intentions to
retire. Do you believe we need to
hire a professional county manager
or can the commission operate the

One person needs to lbe held
accountable for implementation
and follow-through for all policy
and procedures.
' (4) A recent study indicates many
of Taylor County's citizens lag
behind the state average in many
categories such as health care,
income, education and healthy
lifestyles. What would you do to
help improve these statistics?
I would support the hospital in
growth. for the community for
improved health care. If the
hospital grows, the economy of
Taylor County will improve. Perry
residents need to accept change
and change is good for the
economy to grow, but it needs to
be done through the majority of the
residents in agreement. No
statement on the school system at
the this time.


The editorial staff of Perry Newspapers, Inc.,

I do not believe citizens should
vote on every issue; however, I
would have supported a vote on
the coal plant and any other major
issue where there are opposing
views, such as the bombing range
a couple of years ago. I will always
support the will of the majority of
the citizens. If the majority
approved the plant, it would be
imperative we build the safest and
cleanest plant and get ass much
from the deal as possible for
Taylor County.
If the majority rejected the plant,
I would accept that decision and
look for another source of jobs and
economic development. I believe
citizens should have a voice in
government and their input
valued.

Dear Voters,

We are now at the last week of this campaign.
I want to thank you for allowing me to serve as .
your County Judge for the past 22years. I have ..., > ...
now personally visited over 5000 of your homes
asking you to return me to this office. :Duties as
your County Judge limited the: hours. I could,
spend visiting you. My campaigning was done
after work hours, on my vacation, and Saturdays.
If I was unable to visit your home personally, it
was not for the lack of wanting to see you
personally, but time just ran.out.

FAIRNESS, HONESTY, DEDICATION AND
IMPARTIALITY are the qualities I have always tried to put forth as your
County Judge. There have been tough decisions made over the years,
but I made them because that is what you, the people, have demanded
of me by electing me for the past 22 years.

: The qualities of FAIRNESS, HONESTY, DEDICATION AND
IMPARTIALITY will continue to guide me as your County Judge.

We are now at a moment of decision. I would ask that you allow me to
continue to serve as your County Judge and continue my. record as a
FAIR, HONEST, DEDICATED, and IMPARTIAL Judge as I have been
for the past 22 years.
SThank you so much,

other ideas?
First, we must have a balance
between growth and the protection
of natural resources while
retaining the rural attributes of the
majority of the county. All large
housing developments should
provide the infrastructure to be
self-sufficient. They should pay
impact fees to help the county
provide for essential services like
water, sewer, fire, police
protection and schools.
Medium/small developments
should be handled on a case-by-
case basis. In general they should
pay their way and help provide for
essential services. The single
homebuilder should be exempt
from impact fees.
(3) The current county manager
has announced his intentions to
retire. Do you believe we need to
hire a professional county manager
or can the commission operate the
county themselves?
I believe we need a professional
and experienced county manager.
The county manager must be.able
to do more with less. Some areas
of our county are transforming
from a rural to a somewhat urban
environment. We need a county
organization that is capable of
managing growth and maintaining
the traditional way of life for the
majority of the citizens of Taylor
County.
We need a skilled management

(1) The current Taylor County:
Commission has taken the position,
of supporting the Taylor Energy.
Center in spite of some vocal
opposition. Do you concur with the.
commission's stance or do you
support another position?
Many times people :in
responsible positions are called
upon to make decisions that may':
prove to 'be unpopular. A.
referendum should be taken on a
matter only after the responsible,
party has fully explored the,
options and have recommended".
what they feel is the best, courselof.
action and has adequately,
informed the public of the reasons
for their action. Looking back ,i.
always 20/20. ,
Perhaps if the commission could:!
have gone back to the beginning of
this process, they .would have-
called for a public hearing and
perhaps a referendum.
This would have been the best
move politically.


(2) Plans for new housing
developments--especially those
along our coast--are starting to
become quite frequent here. Do you
believe the county is dealing with
this issue properly or do you have
other ideas?
It appears that the county is on
the right track with regards to new
housing and growth planning.
State statutes, land use
regulations, county comprehensive
plans and county, ordinances
certainly appear to be sufficient to
achieve the results we want.
However, as the saying goes, "the
devil is in the details." Any plans
dealing with development issues
and growth will of necessity be a
work in progress, and will have to
be reviewed and revised from time
to time as new issues present
themselves.
Developers should be
encouraged to be proactive in
providing for affordable housing.
Not everyone can afford houses in
the $250,000 and up range.
(3) The current county manager
has announced his intentions to
retire. Do you believe we need to
hire a professional county manager
or-can the commission operate the
county themselves?
We should by all means hire a
county manager to handle the
county's operations. Operation of
county government has become
big business. The budget this year
is almost $38 million. With all the
issues facing us 'that require
research and coordination with
other agencies, local, state, and
federal, there is no way that the
commission can micro-manage the
day-to-day activities, not to
mention the long-term problems

(1) The current Taylor County
Commission has taken the position
'of supporting the Taylor Energy
Center in spite of some vocal
opposition. Do you concur with the
commission's stance or do you
support another position?
Taylor County has invested both
time and money for numerous
years in an effort to recruit possible
industry, and tourism for the
purpose of creating employment
opportunities for our citizens and
their families. This ongoing
recruiting process has resulted in
the Taylor Energy Center
proposing to construct a multi-
million dollar power plant in
Taylor County and bringing
approximately :180 new high-
paying jobs with associated
benefits. .
The Taylor County Board of
County Commissioners has
jurisdiction over a needed land use
and zoning change to allow the
project to be constructed on the
proposed site. When, and; if, the
commission adopts both the
necessary land use and zoning

any new. technologies that may be
developed and proven in the
future. New coal plants are 1.0
times cleaner than older plants. As
a new. facility, the plant will meet ,
or be well below the air and water
quality standards established to
protect human health .and the
environment. I' have found the
Taylor Energy Center project to be
committed to being a good
neighbor and committed to
*involving the local communities in
their process. They will. bring
skilled, high-paying jobs to Taylor
County and will contribute back to
the community,for years to come.
(2) Plans for new housing
developments--especially those,
along our coast-are starting to
become quite frequent here. Do you
believe the county is dealing with
this issue properlyy or do you have
otier ideas?
.According to the Progress 2006
edition, property values, in Taylor
County crossed $1 billion in 2005
with a 16 percent increase over
2004. Property) \ alues .in the
unincorporated areas of Taylor
County are expected to increase 17
percent. We face increases in
de\elopinent and propert- values
due to interest in our area and our
quality\ of life. Tailor Couinty
needs responsible 'land
development and management
practices. With the' longest
continuous coastline in Florida,
Taylor County is very attractive to
developers.
However, according to local'
sources, there are only about six
miles of our coastline that is
privately owned and available for
development.
This emphasizes the need for
good planned development of the
property that is available.
I support the review and renewal
of" -our current development
regulations and zoning ordinances
to ensure the'rights of landowners
are protected and the value of our
land is preserved.
(3) The current county manager
has announced his intentions to
retire. Do you believe we need to
hire a professional county manager
or can the commission operate the
county themselves?
Taylor County is at a crossroads
in our hi-torv. We are poised to


grow and to take advantage of
opportunities for our community,
and- oir residents. As we move
forward, we will need the talent,
knowledge,, skills and experience
of a professional county
administrator to manage our local
government and services. The role
of the county commission is to set
direction, involve the public, and
maket strategic decisions to move
our county forward. They should
not be responsible for managing
the day to day operations, of county
government. This is also a time
when the county should look for a
professional planner to bring that
type 6f expertise to a community
that is, poised for development.
(4) A recent study indicates many
of Taylor County's citizens lag
behind the state average in many
categories such as health care,
income, education and healthy
lifestyles. What would you do to
help improve these statistics?
According to the US Census of.
2000, just under 20,000',people.
reside in Taylor County.
Of those, 14.5 percent of our
families have incomes below the
poverty level. Twenty-five percent
of our people are'between the ages
of 45i64 and 14 percent are over
the age of 65
The median income for families
is $35.061.
As our population matures, the
need-' for quality health care,
higher paying jobs and quality
education increases. We must
provide for the health of our
community by working with our
hospital:" and local physicians to
recruit and retain health' care
professionals.
We -must work to develop the
infrastructure heeded to attract
new''business and industry to
Taylor .County.
We must support those
organizations \\ho are on the front
line of promoting our community
and attracting businesses like the
Chamber of Commerce and the
Taylr County Development
Authority.
I also support the development
of assisted living facilities in our
area to fill a currently unmet need.
We must also look for ways to
support our school. system to
provide quality education for our
youth and the technical training
needed to prepare them for future
growth. ..


changes, then the Taylor Energy
Center will be allowed to apply for
the proper permitting applications
with the appropriate state and
federal regulatory agencies.
The environmental impact of the
proposed power plant is a major
topic of debate for citizens of this
county, as I have discovered upon
visiting with numerous voters
during this campaign. The county
commission does not have
jurisdiction over manufacturing
processes, environmental permits,
storm water applications and a host
of other environmental regulations
required for such an intense
project.
There are numerous state and
federal regulatory agencies that
haj e the statutory responsibility of
reviewing and implementing all
applicable rules and standards to
protect our citizens and our
environment. It is the
responsibility of these agencies to
guarantee our safety and future,
living, conditions in Taylor County.
If elected to represent the people
of District IV, I pledge that I will
not only strive to seek out and
support the location of industry in
Taylor County, but also promise to
serve as a conduit for citizens who
wish to voice their questions and
concerns to the appropriate
agencies having jurisdiction over
those issues.
At the current time, Taylor
County has a unique opportunity to
entertain a mutually beneficial
business relationship with the
Taylor'Energy Center. There are
many questions to- be answered,
both financially and
environmentally, before this
endeavor can be completed.
I am supportive of generating
new jobs that will have health and
benefit packages providing for the
long term welfare of the citizens of


Taylor County. But, I also give
serious consideration to those who
fear the environmental' impacts
associated with a coal-fired plant.
I stand committed to balancing
both concerns and will work with
the appropriate state and federal
agencies to ensure that this county
and its citizens can enjoy the
benefits of quality economic
development without sacrificing
the health of our families or the
environment we currently enjoy.
The land' use and zoning change
process is the first step in a long
process being undertaken by the
Taylor Energy Center. There will
be numerous permitting review
processes and public hearings that
I strongly recommend the Board of
County Commissioners and the
citizens of Taylor County closely
follow and provide input as
necessary to ensure that all of our
needs are addressed.
(2) Plans for new housing
developments--especially those
along our coast--are starting to
become quite frequent here. Do you
believe the county is dealing with
this issue properly or do you have
other ideas?
It 'is true that residential
developments in Taylor County
and along our coast are being
undertaken at a level never before
seen in the history our county, as
many in Florida and other states
have flocked to our area to escape
the urban lifestyles of their
oVerpopulated areas.
Despite this growth, nearly 70
percent of Taylor County's
coastline is under the ownership of
the State of Florida. There is an
increasing demand for the
remaining undeveloped coastal

We need to consider how we will
spend the $170 million that the
, plant will generate in revenue.
With this new revenue, we need to
see if we can't provide the
taxpayers of Taylor County with a
tax cut.
(2) Plans for new housing
developments--especially those
along our coast--are starting to
become quite frequent here. Do you
believe the county is dealing with
this issue properly or do you have
other ideas?
Growth is not a bad thing.
Increasing the tax base is a good
thing. But, out-of-control sprawl is
a huge negative.
The commission must develop a
vision for Taylor County. What do
the county residents and the
commission wish to see when they
look at Taylor County 10, 20 and
50 years from now? Growth
development must be a top to
*bottom decision. We cannot make
* development policy on the fly.
Growth must be managed by terms
to create the community' we wish.
to see.
I am a supporter of private
property rights,' but the depth of
development must not be. solely
entrusted to the guy writing the
checks. '
Once a vision has been
developed, the commission can
effectively shape growth
management policy to lead us to
that future Taylor County.
(3) The current county, manager
has announced his intentions to
retire. Do you believe we need to
hire a professional county manager
or can the commission operate the

commission is to set policy. You

(1) The current Taylor County

Center in spite of some vocal
opposition. Do you concur with the
commission's stance or do you

If a new business of any type
were to be located in Taylor
County, the economic boost for
jobs should be tremendous. I think
there is a place for power
generation in Taylor County, if it is
constructed to the standards that I
have researched which the EPA
requires.
If the facility were going to be
built, I would strenuously fight to
make sure it is as clean as possible.
I love to hunt and fish, I am a'

won't find too many counties
where the board "runs the show."
SThere is too much to do. That is a
-:massive job and sets up the county
to fail. Once Mr. Humphries
'retires, the board needs to find an
experienced manager that receives
'the policy from the board and can
implement the policy with well-
conceived plans and accountability
for spending the money of Taylor
County. A county mission and
goals must be developed. Only
then can an organization look back
at what was expected and identify
what goals were reached and what
did not happen. Then it can move
forward to accomplish the goals
that fulfill the vision of where we
want to go.
(4) A recent study indicates many
of Taylor County's citizens lag
behind the state average in many
categories such as health care,
income, education and healthy
lifestyles. What would you do to
help improve these statistics?
The job of the county;
commission is to set policy. If the
board decides to improve'
healthcare, expertise must be
accessed to increase options and a
move to improve the business
climate for healthcare providers
must be achieved. There is an
imperative need for a healthy
community. A healthy populace is
more productive and less taxing on'
public funds.
The school board is delegated
the' responsibility for education.
The county may seek other
educational opportunities for
adults to improve their job
prospects, but the primary concern
should be for broadening the job
base and attracting employers with
good wages and benefits.

* Lead the way in plannJng and building a program to address the funding and
construction of needed infrastructure (streets, utilities, etc.) to support existing
and new residential developments. Specifically, by developing an impact fee
program that would be paid by developers and not negatively affect the private
construction of single-family homes by individual citizens.

* Work with county staff to develop a program for future road improvements.
Roads need to be paved and, maintained based on traffic count data and tax
dollars generated in the area being served. All citizens should be able to
regularly review when: their respective road is scheduled to be paved or
maintained as well as the supporting data that contributed to that priority list
ranking.

* Work with other local governmental agencies and private businesses to
initiate summer programs for our youth. Specifically, a series of summer
educational field trips to educate our youth about the wonderful natural
resources we enjoy here in Taylor County (our rivers,, coastline and vast

* Promote more and better communication between the county commission

(1) Do you believe students
graduating from Taylor County
High School are as prepared as
students educated in any other
rural, similar-sized district? If not,
why?
With the ever growing
requirements to get into major
universities, it is very hard to
keep on pace with the
requirements to enter them.
Therefore, I would have to say


that our system is lagging behind
in some of these areas. Math has
been a problem for us; to correct
this our administrators and
superintendent of schools have
gotten with North Florida
Community College and have set
up dual enrollment so that seniors
wanting to go on to college can
get these classes they need. We
have hired one part-time, upper-
math teacher this year (2006-07)
to help resolve this matter.
(2) If you could change two
policies of the current school
board, what would they be?
One policy I would like to see
changed is how we view our
discipline matrix.
At present as a whole the
matrix is fine, but I would like to
see a more common sense
approach to our matrix.
Another policy is the dress
code, it has been a factor for the
last three years. I believe we have
to as a system enforce the policy
as it is written.
This has been a problem since
it was addressed and I believe
with some fine tuning this policy
can be very effective.,
(3) Are Taylor County's school
facilities adequate for its student
population. If so, why? If not,


why?
. Most of the schools we have
are adequate for the population
we have now. Perry Primary is
being addressed right now for
remodeling, and there could 'be
some classroom adjustments
made at the high school to
accommodate larger classroom
numbers, but overall, across the
board it is adequate.
(4) A recent study indicates
many of Taylor County's citizens
lag behind the state average in
many categories such as
education, health care, income
and healthy lifestyles. What would
you do to help improve these
statistics?
Start at the lowest level
teaching our children that
education leads to a better
lifestyle. Therefore everything
else falls into place.
(5) Should we be using any
different approaches to prepare
our students in vocational classes
to enter the job force here?
Taylor Technical has in place
one of the best programs in the
state. Each skill they teach can be
used at the local or state level,
therefore allowing the students
the availability to get better
paying jobs.

(4) A recent study indicates many
of Taylor County's citizens lag

categories such as health care,
income, education and healthy
lifestyles. What would you do to
help improve these statistics?
Healthcare: Healthcare in Taylor
County has a good start with the
new hospital We need&; morae
specialty and primary care.
physicians. This will keep our
patients from going out of town.
The hospital is vital for healthcare
and good jobs.
As a community, we must
support the hospital. I would like
to see the old hospital converted to
a veterans' clinic. This would
enhance- veterans healthcare,
utilize existing county assets and
provide good jobs. We also need
an extended care facility and drug
and alcohol rehab center.
Income: We must search for
good employ )er to pro ide good
paying jobs and to protect the
economic well being of the area.
We must be willing to compete for
good paying jobs. .
I support incentives (with


limitations) for new employers. I
think we should change our
economic development strategy
and focus our efforts on making
quality of life attributes in Taylor
County more attractive to new
employers. This has an immediate
impact on our citizens and
pro\ ides the engine for good long-.
term job growth.
Education: A community focus,
'on education would have a two-
.fold -impact It wouWi have ~i:3
pomiuve impact on our children
and would make Taylor Count.'
more attractive to newcomers and
newibusinesses.
I will work with the school
board,' educators, parents and
community leaders to develop a
blueprint to improve our education
s\ stem.
We must prepare our, children to
succeed in a modern business
'environment and. we must rank in
the top quartile to .attract
employers with good. paying
jobs. ..
Healthy lifestyles: I would
support a community task force to
develop plans to address drug and
alcohol abuse among our young
people. The county must work
with the city and school board-to

that are sure to occur. It is
impossible to accomplish anything
if each of the commissioners tries
to dictate the courses of action for
the county. The commission
should establish a good -set of'
,policies under which the manager
operates, and help keep
the manager advised of the needs
of the constituents of his/her
district so that their needs can' be
met.
(4) A recent study indicates many
of Taylor County's citizens lag
behind the state average in many
categories such as health care,
income, education and healthy
lifestyles. What would you do to
help improve these statistics?
One key to improving the things
mentioned here is to secure high


paN ing and diverse industry here
that pays good salaries and
prot ides health insurance for its
employees. In order to attract the
kind of industry we want; we must
have in place the things that attract
iindustry--good roads, good
hospital, good schools, churches
and a plentiful supply of trainable
and willing workers.
To. achieve our goal of
improving the things mentioned
above, the commission should
establish a mechanism for having a
committee composed of members
from the commission, the
education community, the hospital
arid"state, and any other local
groups that could contribute to a
roundtable discussion to identify
problems and suggest solutions.
This should be -an ongoing
committee and should meet on a
regular basis.-

enhance all youth programs in our
community.
. We must partner with the
hospital to offer wellness programs
that addresses diabetes, obesity
and other common conditions.
We must take care of our
seniors. I propose setting
minimumstandards for our seniors
and providing assistance to meet
those' standards.

areas, which are extremely
valuable. With proper planning and
design of our coastal properties,
we have the opportunity to create
an area that can be enjoyed by the
people trying to escape the urban
areas while protecting our natural
resources for ourselves and our
children.
Our access to the Gulf of
Mexico, pristine grass flats and
numerous other waterways here in
Taylor County are assets that we as
citizens of Taylor County have
enjoyed for decades and should be
able to pass down to future
generations. I believe it is essential
that the county commission recruit
the services of a professional land
planner.
We are at a place in our planning
of future land use where these
highly specialized services are
needed. Local government should
not react to future developments,
but pre-plan for expected future
growth.
(3) The current county manager
has announced his intentions to
retire. Do you believe we need to
hire a professional county manager
or can the commission operate the
county themselves?
I am wholeheartedly in support
of continuing to operate under the
county manager/administrator
form of government. It is the
responsibility of the Taylor County
Board of County Commissioners
to establish a vision and to guide'
the growth and development of.the
county in a manner that is
consistent with the public interest.
This includes: proposing and


adopting a budget, providing for
long-term growth, recruitment of
future industry and ensuring the
general welfare of our citizens. As
set forth under Florida Statutes,
county commissioners should
approve policy, adopt ordinances
(local laws) and provide public
services and facilities for the
citizens of the county.
County commissioners should
not be involved in personnel issues
or the day-to-day operations of the
county. These responsibilities
should be .handled by the county
manager, who is also responsible
for interpreting the commission's
vision and direction to the county
employees.
The commission as a whole
should support the individual they
.hire to be county manager and hold
them accountable to carrying out
the duties as assigned through an
annual performance' review
process.
(4) A recent study indicates many
of Taylor County citizens lag behind
the state average in many
categories such as health care,
income, education and healthy
lifestyles. What would you do to
help improve these statistics?
In light of the recent study
results showing Taylor County lags
behind other communities in
several socio-economic areas, I
would continue the county
commission's tradition of
supporting Doctors' Memorial
Hospital, the Taylor County Health
Department and other health-
related agencies.
While it is the county's
responsibility to provide for the
general welfare of our citizens,
other agencies are primarily


responsible for, and better suited 2
to, delivering healthcare services:
to our citizens. The same can be-
said for education.
However, as Taylor County is -
experiencing tremendous:
residential growth, it is county:
government's responsibility to'
recruit industrial employment
opportunities that would directly.
and indirectly affect healthcare,.
income and healthy lifestyles. 'By .
recruiting industries that bring:
better wages and more affordable'
comprehensive health insurance:
coverage the county can make a:
difference in these areas.
In order for Taylor County::
citizens to enjoy better health care
packages, higher-paying jobs and
healthier lifestyles, we need to
recruit new industry--thereby -
taking advantage of our most
valuable natural resource--our ',
children.
Each year Taylor County High
School has a graduating class of
academically-advanced and self- .
motivated, individuals. This great
natural resource is leaving Taylor
County to pursue jobs and careers.' -
in other locations.
There is historical data which
shows these youth are successful-
and prosperous in their respective-
careers in other communities. It
should be a primary goal of our
commissioners to actively search -
for these industries so that we can-
provide our graduates these same:
employment opportunities here.
This will not only serve to:.
further the development and future::
well being of Taylor County, but'-
also address many of the areas
where our county is shown to be-
deficient in the study.

I want Taylor County to'grow in a responsible manner
and see more opportunities for our young people to get
good jobs and be able to raise a family here in Perry. The
County Commission should seize the opportunity to attract
new businesses, which will bring good jobs with benefits
like retirement and health insurance.- It is our dream that

be forced to search elsewhere for good jobs. We want our
