TEC starts


permitting


stage Tues.
The Taylor Energy Center
(TEC) took the first step Tuesday
to begin the permitting process for
a proposed coal-fueled electrical
power plant here.
A filing was made at the Florida
Public Service Commission-
seeking a determination of need
for an 800-megawatt power plant
with a projected in-service date of
2012. TEC submitted information
to demonstrate the need for the.
proposed electrical power plant in
the proposed time frame as the
most cost-effective alternative
available.
The Public Service Commission
is one of several state, federal and
local agencies that must review a-e-
new electrical power plant during::_
a multi-step approval process .
required by Florida law. The
commission's role is to determine-.
wvhether dte poer is needed to
. reliably-meet customers' needs and -
whether tht proposed plant is the
most cost-effective option. The
commission I also' considers.
conservation measures "reasonably
available" that might mitigate the
need for the plant. .
The next step in the li-ensing
process' will be to file anr
application at the, Department ,of-
Environmental Protection, whicKi
will coordinate other agencies'
review of the proposed plant. The
entire approve al process is expected
to take approximately two years.-: .i

Fire protection sparks debate at


commission's final budget hearing


The Taylor County Commission on those in the unincorporated area
formally adopted its budget for the of the county for services
2006-07 fiscal year totaling duplicated by the City of Perry
$37,868,921, a more than 12 including animal control and fire
percent increase over the current services.

The commission held its second
and final public hearing Monday to
finalize the budget afid millage
rates.
The ad valorem tax rates will
remain unchanged for the
upcoming year with the general
fund rate set at 8.076 mills and the
MSTU fund at 1.276 mills.
The county's MSTU fund is
funded by ari additional tax levied


much of the debate at Monday's
hearing with residents from both
Keaton Beach and Steinhatchee
requesting additional fire
protection.
Although the commission did
not make any changes to the
upcoming budget, both
commissioners Clay Bethea and
Malcolm Page stated they would
try to put forth a plan.next year, if

our new neighbors, share
information about the project and
listen to the public," said Mike
"Lawson, TEC project manager.
"'Moving into the permitting phase


of our project is a major milestone.
The approval process includes
continuing opportunities to listen
and receive public input, and we
will continue- to be a 'good
neighbor by working with the
-community and keeping the
public informed on our progress."


the budget allows, to reduce the
general fund millage and then raise
the MSTU fund millage to allow
for more money to increase fire
protection.
Another topic of discussion
Monday was the commission's
decision last week to transfer
$30,000 designated for outdoor
restroom facilities at the
Steinhatchee Community Center
to the purchase of Advance Life
Support equipment for the
ambulance stationed there.
Several residents told the
commission they had been told
that the bathroom funds were
linked to a grant for trails in
7 Steinhatchee and, without the
money, the grant would be lost.
Bethea, who was out of town
during .last week's meeting, stated
that he had talked with Doctors'
Memorial Hospital CEO Rick
Brown and the ALS equipment
would not cost the quoted
$50,000.
Brown said he had been in talks
with his emergency medical
services director and was told that,












H urr-' "

J -. /-72


with existing equipment, the cost
to upgrade the ambulance would
be approximately $10,000.
The problem, Brown said, is that
once the ambulance is upgraded, it
must be run as an ALS ambulance,
which would preclude anyone
from running it without the proper
certification.
According to Brown, the
ambulance would require an EMT
to drive and a paramedic in the
back 24 hours a day (three shifts a
day). The total cost for such an
arrangement would exceed
$400,000.
Steinhatchee resident Meg
Flemming urged commissioners to
earmark the $20,000 they
promised last week toward the
ALS equipment and return the
$30,000 back to the restrooms.
The commission agreed in a 4-0
vote. Commissioner Pat Patterson
was not able to attend the meeting.
Flemming said she and other
Steinhatchee volunteers would
pursue finding volunteers to man
an ALS ambulance over the
coming months.


Lucky escape
The driver of this car was lucky to escape serious injury
during a one-vehicle, roll-over crash on Beach Road Friday
morning. The four-door car was discovered overturned on its
side in heavy brush off the road.

Sydney was born at 12:49 p.m.,
weighing 2 lbs., 12 oz. She was
more than six weeks early.
The baby girl was taken to the
highest level of the neonatal
intensive care unit.
"We were very blessed as she
was breathing on her own and
required very little 'wires' for a
baby her size," Robin said.
"My husband and sister were
able to see her right away. I was in
recovery and was not allowed up
for 24 hours," she said.
"I got to see her on video. She
was so small. She was half the size
of a five-pound bag of sugar.
"I think I asked thousands of
times that night, 'You're sure she is
okay?' I was discharged three days
later. Leaving the hospital without
her was very difficult."
For the next six and one-half
weeks, the couple, as well as their
family and friends, watched
Sydney grow ounce by ounce.
"We had a few feeding tubes,
some oxygen and a serious
infection, but other than that, we
were very blessed."
Very blessed indeed. In fact,

In Loving Memory
of
Thomas "Tommy" Wilson, Sr.
Sept. 20, 1948 April 11, 2006
When I wake up each morning I still think you are here.
As I look around, I realize you're gone.
I look at your picture with Ihose beautiful blue eyes
and your big smile.
And I think of what a big heart you had,
and you were so full of life.
You were always checking on others, and helping someone.
I can still hear and see you, talking and laughing.
And then the tears start falling; just like rain.
Remembering the 36 years of loving memories
of our life together.
We were blessed those years, with our three sons,
and our three granddaughters.

WHAT WOULD JESUS DO? No.7

JESUS WOULD VISIT THE SICK
By Bill Blue
Would you like to please God, follow Jesus' example,
edify your brethren, and grow your church numerically
and spiritually at the same time without doing anything
difficult? Visit the sick among your friends, family, and
brethren.

The Gospels are filled with accounts of Jesus healing
the sick (Matt. 4:23-24, 8:14-17,9:35; Mark 1:30-34, 6:5;
Luke 4:38-40; John 4:46-53,5:2-9, 11:1-45), Jesus' ability
to heal became well known (Matt. 14:35-36; Mark 6:54-
56; Luke 7:2-10). We understand that the purpose behind
miraculous healings was to confirm that Jesus spoke and
did things by God's authority (John 3:2, 5:36, 10:25; Heb.
2:2-4; see also Mark 16:20), and also help us "believe
that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God" (John 20:31, see
also John 2:23, 11:1-45), but Jesus also healed the sick
because, "He was moved with compassion for them [the
sick]" (Matt. 14:14, see also Matt. 9:36).

Jesus gave His Apostles the ability "to heal all kinds of
sickness and all kinds of disease" (Matt. 10:1, 8; see also
Mark 3:14-15,6:12-13; Luke 9:1-2,9:6, 10:9). Thebook
of Acts records several instances when the Apostles healed
the sick (Acts 5:14-16, 9:36-41, 19:11-12, 28:8).

Jesus expects everyone to visit the sick. He instructed
the Apostles to teach Christians "to observe (or 'obey'
according to the NIV and NRSV) all things that I have
commanded you [the Apostles]" (Matt. 28:20), and taught
that "everlasting punishment" is reserved for the
unmerciful anduncompassionate who, among other
things, fail to visit the sick (Matt. 25:31-46). Thus, all
Christians, and not just the preachers, should follow Jesus'
example and visit the sick.

The writers of the New Testament likewise instructed
the churches to visit the sick (James 5:14-15).

Jesus did not visit only the physically sick, but als6 the
spiritually sick (Matt. 9:11-13; Mark 2:16-17; Luke 5:30-
32). The Apostles and inspired authors of the New
Testament also referred to the spiritually weak as sick (1
Cor. 11:29-30).,

Visiting the sick is a way of expressing our love- and
concern for one another; thus, fulfilling another command
of Jesus (John 13:34-35; see also Heb. 10:24). Visiting
the sick also encourages and strengthens the brethren,
and the relationships among the brethren, much in the
same way that faithful attendance at worship services
encourages the members assembled (Heb. 10:25).
Visiting the sick will help grow the church (Cf. Eph. 4:11-
16). I have known people who have left congregations
to worship elsewhere because the brethren were
"unfriendly," or the preacher did not visit (or. stay night
and day with) the sick. (I have often wondered, did that
person or other brethren visit the sick, or did that church
believe that visiting was solely the responsibility of its
preacher?)

We should not limit our concern to those who love us.
David sang about the concern he had for his adversaries
when they were ill (Psalm 35:12-13). Of course, showing
compassion on someone other than friends, family, or
brethren may encourage that person to consider becoming
a member of your spiritual family.

Writer for power plant, against


rail cars traveling through Perry


Dear Editor:
I am in favor of the coal plant,
but I am against the coal plant
bringing its railroad cars through
downtown Perry as long as a rail
bypass option exists, whatever the
cost--even to the taxpayers. I am
also against any alternative
proposal that permits the cars to
travel through town, such as


increasing the speed limit for the
cars, or even adding additional
infrastructure to he rail lines
within the city limits.
I believe that adding additional
rail traffic through the City of
Perry will ultimately result in
additional closures of* railroad
crossings, against the will of city
officials and their constituents.


Increasing the speed limit for
trains will only result in more
accidents, and more railroad
crossing closures.
No one has yet provided a
logical argument for why the
railroad cars cannot bypass the
City of Perry.
Sincerely,
William W. Blue


TRural healthcare
The B*yd Report: equity initiative


Congressman Allen Boyd recently
joined his colleagues of the Rural
Healthcare" Coalition to introduce the
Healthcare Access and Rural Equity
(H-Care) Act (HR 6030).
This comprehensive, bipartisan
legislation helps to: stabilize
elements of our nation's* rural
healthcare infrastructure and correct
inadequacies that jeopardize
beneficiaries in rural areas
nationwide.
"Our rural communities should not
be overlooked when it comes to.
access to critical., healthcare
services," said Congressman Boyd.
"Rural Americans face a unique
combination of factors, not found in


urban areas. The H-Care Act
recognizes the characteristics of
healthcare delivery in rural areas and
assists our providers in their efforts
to continue to offer quality care to
rural America."
The key provisions of the H-Care
Act include:
Authorizing a 'loan program
targeted to rural hospitals for capital
improvement projects such as
hospital renovation and expansion.
Improving .payments for rural
ground ambulance services.
Establishing the Rural
Community Hospital Program to
provide Medicare. cost-based
reimbursement for .inpatient and


outpatient services for hospitals with
50 or fewer beds.
Raising rural health clinic
reimbursements to more
appropriately cover costs.
Extending several expiring
Medicare adjustment payments for
rural practitioners. This would
include physicians practicing in
physician scarcity areas, rural
ambulance providers, rural home
health agencies and specific classes
of rural hospitals.
"Access to affordable, quality
healthcare is of great importance to
me and the people of North Florida,"

It's my opinion, if a person
doesn't know the facts. they can't
make legitimate statements. We
have had a few doctors come and
go over the past few years. Most
stated to be leaving for
family/personal reasons, some not

paramedics, EMT's, and intensive
care nurses qualified to observe
cardiac patterns, cardiac enzyme
panels and are Advanced Cardiac
Life Support certified.
We suill have Dr. Mohammed
who has performed stress tests for
many years. I have. trusted my
heart status to him, as many others
in the community have..
My son-in-law was in an ATV
accident and sustained multiple'
internal injuries. I, of course, had
him brought to DMH. The
emergency room staff, doctors and
x-ray technicians were rapid in
doing the scans to know he needed
emergency surgery. Dr. Nelson
was my first choice of surgeons,,
but he- was out- of town. The
surgeon on call care in but wanted
to send him to Shands where he
said they' would have a crew
%aiting for him. He had stated he
had personal plans the next day
and didn't want to operate. My son-
in-law was life-flighted to Shands.
My daughter and I drove,
thinking by the time we got there,
the. surgery would be finished. We
were sadly mistaken. I don't want
to go into details publicly
criticizing a medical facility, but


their "dropping the .ball" as they
put it, compromised my sort-in-
law's recovery. He was discharged
from Shands in bad condition and
we had to bring him back to DMH
and Dr. Nelson to resolve his
health. When I fell 20 feet two
years ago, I, was taken to TMH. I
called my husband in the middle of
the night begging him to come to
Tallahassee and bring me to Perry
because of the lack of nursing care
I was receiving there.
So instead of degrading and
putting down our hospital,. why*
don't the citizens band together to
support the committed staff that
has stayed here for years to take
care of our neighbors and friends?
Help us find ways to raise the
.money we need for.the specialties
you want. But most of all, trust us.
We love our community and
hospital.

Bugs, heat lead

to writer moving
Dear Editor:
Goodb e Perryites, or is it
Perryians? Ok nice people of
Perry, I'm outta here. So is my
wife. We've lived here on the
outskirts of town for six months.
At first I loved the seclusion, the
fact that I only had to drive 10
miles one-way to work, rather than
the twenty-seven one way when
we lived in Gates, N.C. I liked the
fact that my friends owned
property, I could hunt and fish on.
This was gonna.be a cool place to
live.
:, Then summer arrived, with all,
its heat and humidity.. I have
severe emphysema, which' has
been affected by the 90-plus days
of 90 :degrees or more..
Then the insects invaded us.
Something bit my ear while I was
asleep and it ballooned. The fire
ants and the sand gnats out here
are terrible. I've killed four brown
recluse spiders in 'the trailer we
were living in. A scorpion
introduced itself to my wife last
week. Needless to say she now
hates me because I'm a Scorpio.
Hahaha.
We had a "love bug" invasion at
our .church this past Sunday, with
one landing inside this church
goer's mouth!
We're outta here! We're moving
to Minnesota where all bugs will
be dead by October. I've made a
few friends, I'll miss ya'll. Bye bye
bugs.

i- supporting the development,
growth, and continuation of
Children's Advocacy Centers."
FNCAC is a nonprofit
public/private collaboration whose
mission is to promote and support
communities by providing
a coordinated, multi-agency
approach to the investigation,
intervention and treatment of child
abuse.
'Children's Advocacy Centers
(CAC) are child-focused facilities
where child victims can receive
critical services provided by
specially trained professionals in
an environment that is neutral,


non-threatening, and geared
toward the children's specific
needs.
"It is crucial that children and
their families get the help they
need to begin healing from the
physical, mental and emotional
scars inflicted by child abuse, and
CACs are a place where that
healing can begin," Williams said.
"The ultimate success of CAC
depends on support of local
communities, including
individuals just like you. Child
abuse does not just hurt the
children who are its victims, it
hurts our entire society."
Locally, calendars can be
purchased through the Taylbr
County High School Fellowship of
Christian Athletes (FCA) for pick
up at the Florida Forest Festival;
through the TCHS Student Council
prior to the Florida Forest Festival;
by purchase at the bluegrass
