while boating this weekend in the.
Gulf of Mexico off or near the
Taylor County coastline.
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
Lt.- Bruce Cooper said they
responded Monday to a call
reporting an unoccupied boat
(except for a dog).
The victim, Dennis Charles of
Steinhatchee, was found floating
about 200 yards away.
.The U.S. Coast Guard was
called to the scene, just south of
Steinhatchee, where they deployed
a boat anid helicopter for the-
search.
Officials used the boat's
registration number to identify the
owner of the boat, according to,

boat and there are a lot of things it

Once-a-week garbage pick up for city?


In a continuing quest for
spending efficiencies and cost-
saving measures, the City of Perry
is considering cutting back its
garbage collection service to one
day a week.
'Currently, city residents have
trash pick up service two days a
week.
City Manager Bob Brown


presented the. proposal to city
council members at their recent
meeting- no action, was taken on
the issue.
"Right now this is, very much
just an idea--nothing has been done
on it," Brown said.
According to the proposal, the
city would see an annual savings of
some $13,438 in fuel costs if the


* garbage schedule was reduce to
once-a-week collections.
"In addition, you would see a
savings of about $52,000 in labor
value, which means you would be
gaining the equivalent of two and
one-half full-time employees,"
Brown said.
"An informal study shows us
that about 40 percent of the cans


picked up on Thursdays and
Friday don't have any trash in
them and the others usually aren't
even half full. If we went to the
once-a-week schedule, we would
still accommodate the heavy
garbage loads seen around the
holidays by scheduling two
collections that week."
An additional cost-saving


proposal called for the city to halt
mowing "right of way" areas.
"In many cases, property owners
already mow the right of ways. If
the city stopped its right of way.
mowing, the projected cost sayings' s
would be about $2,300 in fuel
expenses and another $24,000 in
labor. If you did that, you would
gain the.equivalent of one full-time


employee. And both of these could
be done without any reduction in
staff ..you .yould be diningg
,manhours .for staff to p' other
needed ksk. "such as ctan-up,
etc.," Brown said.
Although the council- did not
take action on either proposal,
members agreed both were ideas
for consideration.


Players take the field at new sports complex


After 'years of planning,
negotiating and waiting, the Taylor
County Sports Complex stands
ready for play, which is set to
begin this month.
According to County
Administrator Buddy, Hump- 'es,
S the Perry Soccer Associatioi as
well as the City of Perry flag and
tackle football leagues will be
'using the fields at the complex for
tjieir upcoming seasons.
The final details concerning the
scheduling for the three
Leagues are almost complete,


Humphries said.
When the complex opens, it will
spo6 three regulation soccer fields,
three youth-league fields, a
playground and a picnic
shelter.
"It's a dream come true,"
Humphries said.
S"I think the community will
really like it."
. Construction began on the
complex in September 2005 and
the county has tentatively
.budgeted $2 million for the
upqpming fiscal year, which


could be enough to finish
the project.
"We are ecstatic that the first
phase is nearing completion and
will be opening in the very near
future," said County Commission
Chairman Daryll Gunter.
The complex does not currently
have a.restroom facility and port-a-
lets will be used now.
According to Humphries, there
is money remaining in Phase 1 of
the project for -a concessions
building with restrooms; but work
has not begun on it yet.


Aftpr years of planning and months of construction, the new sports complex opens this month.

The possible consolidation of
city and county animal control
departments, county road paving
priorities and the county's ongoing
search for a new county
administrator are all expected to be
topics for discussion as the Taylor
County Commission holds its
regular board meeting Thursday,
Sept. 7, at 8:30 a.m.
The meeting's unusual timing is


due to the Labor Day holiday as
well as Tuesday's primary election.
The commission began
discussions on an interlocal
agreement to consolidate animal
control with the City of Perry last
month, but delayed a decision until
Thursday's meeting.
The city council has already
approved the agreement which
would place all responsibility for


animal control services in the
county's hands with the city
making quarterly payments for the
services.
County Attorney Conrad Bishop
suggested several "cosmetic"
changes to the document, however,
so even if the county approves the
agreement Thursday, it will have
to go back to the city
for their approval on the


Perry woman stabs man


in front of police officer


A Perry woman has been
arrested after stabbing a man last
week during an altercation in front
of police.

who spotted her."
Carpenter said FWC launched
four boats and a twin-engine plane
in their search for the drowned
man, while the U.S. Coast Guard
had a C-130 airplane, a helicopter
and a search boat out of
Yankeetown.
Clark's body was located around
5 p.m. by the Coast Guard
helicopter, which radioed the
location and then hovered over the
body until the other boats arrived.
His body was transported to
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital by,
Burns Funeral Home for an
autopsy.


Perry Police Department Ptl.
"Gene" Franklin was called to a
West Dundee Street address last
Wednesday in reference to a
stalking report.
A 25-year-old woman in that
neighborhood told Franklin that
Mitchell Harrison, 18, "was
messing with her and would not
leave her alone."
As Franklin stood outside the
woman's house, he said he
witnessed Harrison walking up and
down the street.
When Franklin attempted to
speak with Harrison about the
problems between he and the
woman, "Harrison immediately
became agitated with me for even
talking to him and would not tell
me anything."
Harrison was given a trespass
warning for the woman's house
and told to stay away.
Franklin said he stayed in the
area in case Harrison went back to
the woman.
. "A while later," Franklin said, "I
received another call from
dispatch, saying that Harrison was
back at the woman's house and wNas
going after her.
"When: I returned to the area, I
saw Sheila Ridgeway, 40, running
west on Dundee Street, away from


the victim's residence. As I turned
onto Dundee Street, I saw
Ridgeway run up to Harrison and
appear to hit him in the chest area.
"As I got to their location, I saw
that Harrison had been stabbed.
Ridgeway ran to the rear of my
patrol car. Harrison followed her
and struck her in the face several
times," said Franklin.
At that point, Franklin deployed
his X-26 TAZER on both subjects
(with one probe striking each of
them).
"Harrison was bleeding
profusely," said Franklin.
At that point, another man
walked up carrying a large knife
with blood on it, which was seized
and secured.
Franklin then spoke with a
witness to the event.
"She said Harrison went into the
home of the woman who
complained about him, but she ran
from the house with Harrison
chasing her. Ridgeway began
chasing them both, but the witness'
said when Ridgeway caught up
with Harrison, she ran up and
stabbed him in the chest."
Ridgeway was charged with
aggravated assault, while Harrison
had burglary and assault charges
brought against him.

The board has been discussing

With Gratitude for Your
Sympathy and Support


"Scooter Bass"
Your caring words of sympathy,
your kind, consoling touch--
Just being with us in our grief
has meant so very much.
We'll be forever grateful
that you've helped us share our loss,
And offered us the strength and hope
to bear this heavy cross.

"Thanks To All of You"
Perhaps you sent a lovely card or sat quietly in a chair.
Perhaps you brought food or made a monetary donation.
Perhaps you spoke the kindest words, as any friend could say;
Perhaps you were not there at all, just thought of us that day.
Whatever you did to console our hearts,
we thank you so much whatever the part!
With Love,
Tammy Bass & Sons, Sammy & Burdette Bass

Letters to the Editor



Group looking to'Sew Much


Comfort' for wounded soldiers


Dear'Editor:
Can you sew? Then you can help!
Sew Much Comfort, a non-profit
organization, provides adaptive
clothing for wounded service
members. Many of the wounded
have difficulty wearing normal
clothing due to their injuries.
Amputees need access to their
amputation sites. In addition, some
wounded soldiers require a'"fixator"
(a device that holds bone ends in
place with screws and wires), and
regular clothing cannot fit over these
medical devices. Others %%ho find it
difficult and/or painful to maneuver
into non-adapted clothing are burn
victims, those with casts and
artificial limbs, and those with
gunshot or shrapnel wounds. The
result is that,, for many injured
soldiers, hospital gowns become
their only clothing options.
Sew Much Comfort's mission is to
design, create and deliver:
customized clothing for these brave-
troops. Adaptive clothing nqt only
accommodates medical devices and


other unique situations, it also
provides ease of use, contributes to
personal independence and
minimizes the visual impact of many
injuries and other medical
conditions. The goal is to give each
soldier.an individually designed and
tailored wardrobe in order to provide
comfort and ,assistance in
maintaining personal dignity,
thereby facilitating the healing
process both physically and
emotionall.
The types of, adaptive clothing
currently given to soldiers through
.Sew Much Comfort include pants,
shorts, shirts, undergarments and
swimwear. 'All materials (including
patterns) are provided with the
exceptions of thread and the postage,
required to mail the items to the
distribution point.
As an example' of clothing
adaptation, a t-shirt, can be made
much more functional for a wounded
soldier by. merely, opening- a side,
seam, and replacing it with seam
binding and velcro "buttons." There


is no "quota" of items required for
participation in the program. You
may adapt as many or as few
garments as you want.
As they recuperate, let us remind
'them of how important their service
is to our country and to all of us, and
let's help to, make their recovery a
little more comfortable.
For additional information contact
www%%.SewMuchComfort.org. You
many also donate online at that
address. The coordinator for Florida
is jcampb1045@aol.com.

Boys & Girls

Club thanked
for providing


entertainment

Dear Editor:
On behalf of the Taylor County
Democratic Executive Committee I
would like to thank Joey Buchannan,
Boys & Girls Club program director,
and the Boys & Girls Club for the
excellent entertainment provided for
last week's Rod Smith democrat for
governor rally.
We were not only entertained by
their talents but by their enthusiasm
while learning an important civics
lesson about democracy and the
opportunity for a voice in
government by voting. Each of the
drum line introduced themselves to
the candidate, shook his hand and
expressed their gratitude for his
coming to Perry.
We should all be proud of our club
and give them our support. They are
doing a greatjob. We are so pleased
that they are being taught the
importance of every vote. Rod
Smith commented after the rally that
they were fine and confident young
people and it was a thrill to see them
perform and have them show
interest in our election process.
We can and should be proud.
Thank you, again, Boys and Girls
Club.
Sincerely,
Martha Wiggins
