Carl Kenneth Thomrey Jr.
Approximately three and one-
half hours after the beating, an
unknown white male entered the
Perry Police Department and told


Ptl. Lin Gray "that the man they
were looking for was walking
down the railroad tracks on the
other side of the old train station on
Jefferson Street and he had a gun.
"I pulled up to the railroad
tracks, and based on the
information I had received, exited
my car and drew my service
weapon and made contact with
Thomley," Gray said.
"With my weapon drawn and
pointed at Thomley, I yelled at him
and ordered him to put his hands
up above his head. Ptl. Kyle

County eyes Brown as new administrator


After several months of
searching, the Taylor County
Commission decided Thursday
_pg..a replacement-'for County
Administrator Buddy Humphries--
a candidate from their own ranks.
At a special meeting held
ThursdaN night during which.
commissioners interviewed five
candidates, the board vqted 4-0 to
make Conimissioner Jack Brown
their top choice for. the position.
Brown announced at last
Tuesday's regular meeting he was
applying for the position. He
previously served as. county
administrator from March 1997
until September 2001 when he
resigned to become general


manager for RDS Manufacturing
Inc. He is currently 'employed as
associate director over
.administration at the Florida
Center for Reading Research .in
Tallahassee'. ,
The board was originally set to
interview the four candidates' they
had, invited from 16 applicants
received.
At the start of the meeting,
however, commissioners .asked
County Attorney Conrad Bishop if
they could add Brown, who was
not present sinq6 he coultd'tot take
part:,in the hiring process, to the
list. '
When Bishop said they 'could,
they asked staff to call Brown and
I ,: .


invite him to the meeting.
The other candidates
interviewed were Lyndon L.
Bonner of Oc ila. i'quiielin K.
Wilson. of Tallahassee, Glenn A.,
Irby of Clermont and John A.
Minor of Coral Springs.
Following the five interviews,
commissioners held a short
discussion and then Commissioner
Clay Bethea made a motion to
choose Brown. Commissioner
Malcolm Page seconded.
The\ also listed their second and
third choices--Bonner and
Wilson.
Brown, who was elected in 2002
for the District IV seat, announced
in May he would not seek


reelection to the board in the
upcoming November election.
"This will' give me an
opportunity to continue to work on
community service while at the
same time spend more time with
my family," Brown said Tuesday.
The next step for the
commission will be to enter into
salary negotiations with Brown.
Humphries told commissioners
in July that he would retire at the
end of his contract, which was set,
to expire last Friday.
At Tuesday's meeting the
commission agreed to extend his
contract up to Dec. 31 or 30 days
after, a new administrator is
hired.

Land use changes take center stage


The Taylor County Planning
Board % ill hold a series of public
heanngs Thursday, Oct. 5, on five,
proposed amendments to the
county's comprehensive plan,
including two involving the Taylor
Energy Center (TEC). .
The planning board will vote to
make recommendations whether to
approve or deny 'the proposed
amendments to the Taylor County
Commission, which will hold
public hearings on Opt. 17.
By state statute, counties are
onl> able to submit comp plan


amendments to the state's 0
Department of Community Affairs
(DCA) twice a year. They are
allowed, however; to combine
amendments into packages and
submit them as one amendment.
The county adopted a policy last
year to collect proposed
amendments with deadlines of Jan.
1 and July 1 of each year.
The first amendment is an !
application by Mike Lawson, as
agent for Buckeye Florida, L.P.,
and Foley Timber and Land
Company, to amend the Future


Land Use Plan Map changing the
land use category for 2,996 acres
from' Agriculture-l' (AG-1) and
Agriculture-2 (AG-2) to Electric
Power Generating Facility-2
(EPGF-2) which allows solid fuel
(i.e. coal-powered) power plants.
Lawson is the project manager
for TEC and the land in question is
the site for the proposed coal-fired
power plant. The utilities behind
the project signed a letter of intent
to purchase the land in September
of last year.
An amendment was filed late


?'-. "k..


last year on the property to change
the land use category to industrial.
Discussions' with DCA, however,
revealed 'that the concurrence
calculations for such a change
could -not be based on a power
generation facilitation, but would
have to be based on general
industrial uses. This method would
result in impact. calculations that.
would far exceed those of a powei
generation facility.
The application was then
amended to its current state, but it
was too late to make the Jan. 1


deadline.
The second amendment to be
heard at the Oct. 4 meeting is an
application,, also by Lawson, as
agent for the Jacksonville Electric,.
Authority, the Florida Municipal:;;
Power Agency, Reedy CreelkC
Improvement District and the City;
of Tallahassee, to add two new
land use categories: Electric Power
Generating Facility-1 (EPGF- 1)
which accommodates simple cycle
and natural gas combined-cycle

Inmates caught



smoking crack


cocaine


After being arrested .on .drug
charges, two women found
themselves in even more trouble-
after officials at the county jail--
where they were being detained--
caught them with additional
cocaine and a syringe.
According to a report filed by
Perry Police Department Ptl. Lin
Gray, an inmate reported that
Elizabeth Marie Faircloth, 33, and
Robin Ann Hilson, 23, were in the
female pod smoking crack


in


cocaine.
Correctional Off. Brenda Blue
said when she and Taylor County
Sheriffs Office Sgt. Joy Watkins
went to the pod to make contact
with the women, they were found,
sitting on the floor under the stairs
on a blanket.
While Watkins began searching
the women', Blue searched the
blanket they were sitting on, where

SInK noie repair

'The inside northbound lane just north of Salem, about 17 miles
south of Perry, will remain closed while a sinkhole is repaired. The
sinkhole was discovered Thursday and excavation has revealed a
cavity about four feet deep, according to the Florida Department of
Transportation.
Plans are to begin filling with grout (a mixture of cement, sand and
water) this week. Until then, the inside lane will.remain closed 24
hours a day with a law enforcement officer present.
Also, daytime northbound lane closures are expected for up to two
miles to place the second layer of, structural asphalt from about nine
miles south of Perry north to Perry. Drivers will also see southbound
lane closures-to pave the median crossovers.

completed the United Way of the
Big Bend (UWBB) Taylor
community investment process
recently, and funds will soon be.
distributed to 16 human service
agencies that provide services in
Taylor County.
A group of Taylor volunteers
spent many hours at the Big Bend
Hospice Office in Perry to ensure
the $183,559 was allocated in a
"fair and unbiased manner" so that
these select agencies can provide
services for local people in need
year round, according to UWBB
officials.

The Taylor County Community

Wentworth.
"The team's agency review
process includes several `
components that take time: to,
complete properly. Taylor agencies
or new applicants submit afnt
application to remain or become a";
UWBB agency for. Taylor. The
team also makes on-site visits to
the agencies, studies their budgets,
and hears testimonials from clients
and/or agency volunteers. Upon.
completion, they determine which
agencies and how much will be
funded for that particular year," ,
according to Glenda Haamby,:,
UWBB campaign manager, for
Taylor County.
"It's inspiring to see these
volunteers in Taylor take time out
of their busy schedules to ::go".
through this agency review-
process. This process is critical to
ensuring that these funds are
allocated properly and make the
most impact in this countN. We're
very proud of the bottom-line
results these agencies are
producing and how they help
people in need throughout Taylor
County." ,

Because it is homicide, it will
be routine for letting the grand jury
decide what crimes have been
committed and if they come back
with a crime, then we will
prosecute upon that- indictment,"
Phelps added.

she discovered two bags of
cocaine, and a syringe. They were
also found to have cigarette butts
and a lighter.
When questioned, Faircloth
admitted to bringing the illegal
drug into the jal in a bod\ cai\it',.
"Faircloth said she brought the
cocaine into the jail and she and
Hilson %were going to smoke it and
shoot it up after the\ ate." Gras
said.
"After talking to the inmate \ho
initially turned them in. she said
she sao Hilson and Faircloth co
into the sho%\er together, at whichh
time she smelled the cocaine
cooking.
"She said theN came back out of
the shower and went and got under
the stairs." said Gra.. "She also
said she saw both Hilson and
Faircloth shooting up the cocaine
with a syringe
Hilson had the additional
charges of possession of
ej ahandk W st-sscfn ot cocau:l
- and possession ot drug
paraphernalia added .to her other
drug charges.
Faircloth had the .charges of


introduction of contraband into a
correctional facility, possession of
cocaine and possession, of drug
paraphernalia added.


For land use amendments



Developments are also on list.


LAND USE
Continued from page 1


power plants and EPGF-2, which
accommodates solid fuel power
plants.
The third amendment is an
application from the Board of
County Commissioners to add two
new land-use categories: a public
land use category which allows
educational, recreational,
institutional, conservation and
public service/utilities; and a
Aviation Related Commercial
land use category which
allows industrial, commercial,
institutional and office related to
aviation as well as government and
other public uses and essential
services.
The, fourth amendment is an
application by Glenn Senter and
Mike Taylor, to change the future
land use'classification of 21 acres
from agricultural rural residential
(one dwelling per five acres) to
mixed-use urban development
(two to 20 units per acre).
The final application is by Oscar
M. Howard III, as agent for Powell
Hammock Venture LLC, to amend
the future land use classification of


10 acres from AG-2 (one unit per
10 acres) to water oriented
commerce.
The county is still in talks with
DCA concerning disagreements
over differing interpretations of the
county's comp plan, specifically
pertaining to the allowable
building density in mixed-use
urban.
The county says it's 20 units per
acre; DCA says it's four.
In the county's comprehensive
plan, which was adopted in 1990, it
states in the section concerning the
coastal high-hazard area the
maximum density if water service
is available is four units per acre.
It does not mention what the
density would be if water as well
as sewer service is available.


According to DCA's position,
that means the density is four.
But the county contends that the
issue is addressed in the section
concerning the mixed-use urban
category, which does state the
density is 20 units per acre when
water and sewer is available.
The commission met with DCA
representatives in June over the
issue. Since then, Commissioner
Clay Bethea, County Attorney
Conrad Bishop and Bob Sheffield,
who were of the authors of the
county's comp plan, held a
teleconference with DCA General
Counsel Kelly Martinson.
According to Bethea and
Bishop, who updated the
commission at last week's regular
meeting, the conversation did not


go well.
They plan to talk again with
DCA, but Bishop warned the board
that if this conversation did not go
well, the issue would most. likely
be heading to an administrative
hearing.

Mullet esteemed in


Tim Weeks'seaquel


Last year, all up and down the
North Florida Gulf coastline, "The
Wise Mullet of Cook Bayou" was
being enjoyed by kids and adults
alike. It was refreshing and fun to'
read a children's book about the
noble and tasty mullet. Now,
author Timothy A. Weeks is back
with the seaquel "01' Middler
Saves the Day: A Mullet Buddy
Homecoming."
'If you'll remember from the
original story, Middler was the
fish that fainted away upon his
encounter with the net. He sinks
to the bottom in confusion instead
of using his noggin and quickly,
escaping like his friend the wise
mullet. In the seaquel, Middler
faces his fears, puts some steel in
his gizzard and traverses the Gulf
coast in search of his old buddy.
.Meanwhile, the wise mullet and
his girlfriend Silver, are fighting
scale and fin trying to avoid the
red tide and eager fishermen. In
order to escape to safety, they
make their way past Bayou La


Batre and on towards the Sound of
Mississippi.
Unbeknownst to the wise
mullet and his girlfriend, a storm
is brewing in the Gulf. Mayhem
ensues but ol' Middler arrives just
in time to help his old friend.
The illustrations, done by the
author's Mother, Jeanne Weeks,
are interestingly imposed upon a
background of Gulf Coast
photographs taken by Mr. Weeks.
The format works with the story
and the personalities of the mullet
come to life with each turn of the
page.
One of the most endearing
things about the original book
was the wise mullet's glasses and
how cute and perfect they looked
perched upon his mullet face. In
this book, not only does the wise
mullet wear his trademark
spectacles, Middler sports a jaunty
captain's hat while Silver is
adorned in pink lipstick and
mascara.
"Ol' Middler Saves the Day"-

For 'teacher education'


Mantzanas leads workshops


Polly Waller
tells a story of loyalty, loss, hope
and renewal with a flair that will
charm even the most curmudgeon
of a fisherman.
Timothy A. Weeks is the son of
a commercial fisherman and grew
up in Bay County, Florida. He is
now a journalist based in
Amsterdam and has eaten mullet
caught off the shores of France,
-Italy, Thailand, the Netherlands
and Florida.

Polly Waller, with husband
Rod, owns the Book Mart located
at 1708 S. Byron Butler Parkway.
She is a frequent contributor to
this newspaper, offering "good
reads" 'by notable authors and
illustrators.


Dr. Phillip Mantzanas, Perry
resident and director of the
Educator Preparation Institute at
North Florida Community
College, was recently a featured
presenter at the Florida
Association of Colleges of
Teacher Education Conference held
in Ocala, at Central Florida
Community College. The
workshop, entitled, "Alternative
Teacher Certification Program
Evaluation Toolkit," examines the
potential success of EPI
candidates.
The session highlighted


Did you know...?

Did you know that Taylor
County Health Department's
Environmental Health section is
the place to go for reporting a
sanitary nuisance? In a nutshell, a
sanitary nuisance is just about
anything that threatens the health
of the general public.
Everything from improper
sewage disposal to keeping
diseased animals dangerous to
human health is covered. Should
you have a complaint about a
sanitary nuisance, call us at (850)
584-5087, ext.100. If the
condition is not something Taylor
CHD has authority over, we may
be able to direct you to the correct
agency.


evaluation methods EPI
coordinators, candidates, and local
school officials may use to
measure the performance and
eventual impact of the EPI
program. The evaluation model
uses both quantitative and
qualitative measures to help
.determine whether EPI candidates
are prepared to have an impact on
student learning in the K-12
setting.
Much of the evaluation
framework is being designed as a


joint effort between the Florida
Department of Education and the
statewide EPI Employer
Satisfaction Survey Committee,
which Mantzanas chairs.
Due to a high demand by
conference attendees, Mantzanas
conducted two additional sessions
of the workshop.

NFCC Educator Prep Institute,

.have a 3.0 GPA and a qualifying
test score 'on the College
Placement Test. Currently, a total
of 30 ACA juniors and seniors are
participating in the school's dual

represents over 50% of the total
student, population in these two ;
grade levels.
The- school plans to..
significantly expand the available
number of dual enrollment hours


available next school year. With
the expansion, students in the
current junior class may

Bulldogs pound Vernon for 1st win


Despite being forced to go to
their third-string quarterback and
playing without two other starters,
the Taylor County Bulldogs broke
a three-game losing skid and
picked up their first victory of the
season in convincing fashion
Friday night at Dorsett Stadium.
The Bulldogs (1-3) dominated
Vernon (0-5) in every phase of the
game, scoring on offense, defense
and special teams to win their
home opener, 34-8 over the
visiting Yellow Jackets.
Taylor County was led by
,junior third-string signal caller
Greg Sneed, who led the team in
rushing with 15 carries for 88
yards and a touchdown: Operating
primarily out of the option, Sneed
executed some brilliant ball fakes
and kept the Vernon defense off-
balance, helping tailback
sophomore Bryckoski Jackson
rush for 78 yards and a touchdown
on 23 carries.
With starting QB Marquis Ellis
still sidelined with a knee injury
and back-up QB Ty Crowley
nursing a shoulder injury the "
Bulldogs went almost exclusively
to a rushing attack as sophomore
Quentin Tucker had eight carries
for 49 yards and a touchdown and
senior Chad Ellis carried four
times for 34 yards.
L.J. Blount rounded out the
Bulldogs' effective ground attack
with.four carries for 12 yards to
give Taylor a total of 54 carries
for' 261 yards and three .TDs.
rushing, behind a young.
inexperienced offensive line that
stepped up to the task and
controlled the trenches.
Sneed completed one of two
passes, a 19-yard strike to Chad
-Ellis, but did struggle with ball
handling in his first QB start.
Taylor had seven fumbles, but lost
only)'ne.
Vernon was clearly out-manned
and over matched by the Bulldogs.
who enjoyed a size and numbers
advantage for the first time ihis
season. .The Yello%% Jackets
appeared to be in the midst of-a
rebuilding year after back-to-back
9-1 seasons in 2004 and 2005.
The Bulldogs wasted little time
taking advantage of the mismatch,
as senior linebackers Jake:
Meacham and Georgie Armstrong
stuffed two straight running plays
for no gain and forced a puni on
the Yellow Jackets first
possession. .
'On the night the Taylor County
defense stopped 11 of Vernon's 'S
rushing plays for a loss or no
gain, holding the Yellow Jac ke I
to just 135 yards rushing and 45
yards receiving.
Meacham sliced his way
throiugh'to partially block the punt,
and gave the Bulldogs excellent
field position at the Vernon 18-
Syard line.
Two big runs by Jackson and a
keeper by Sneed led to the
Bulldogs scoring, on a two-yard
run by Jackson on their second
possession of the game. Taylor
County added another touchdown
nine seconds, later when Jonathon
Smith forced a fumble on the
kickoff return and Armstrong
scooped it up and scored from the
10-yard line.
Crowley's PAT gave the
Bulldogs a 14-0 lead with 3:19 to
play in the first quarter.
Jarvis McGrew deflected down
Vernon's first pass attempt of the
game to force another punt and.
Taylor began on the Vernon 49-
yard line' '
Despite some impressive fake,
hand-offs and option keepers by
Sneed and hard running by Jackson
the Bulldogs were forced to punt
by. a holding penalty. However,
Jackson followed some excellent
blocking on a fake punt run for a
first down.

A fumbled pitch and several

to a 44-yard field goal attempt by

Meacham and Cory Sadler made
nice defensive plays to force
Vernon to execute a rarely-seen 3rd
down quick punt by, the
quarterback and the Bulldogs
started on their own 23, Tucker,'
Jackson, Sneed and Ellis all had
big plays during an impressive 12-
play, 77-yard scoring drive that
ended with three' straight 'QB
keeper runs by, Sneed before,
scoring from seven yards out with
28 seconds to play in the first
half.
The drive was highlighted by
Sneed's 19-yard pass to Ellis and
some determined running up the
middle by Jackson, which set up
some excellent ball fakes that led
to Sneed running free for gains of
seven, 22, 13, and five yards.


Leading 21-0 the Bulldogs
kicked off and Vernon attempted to
go to the air, but after two
incomplete passes Joseph Proenza
picked off a 3rd and 10 pass and
returned it 35 yards for a
touchdown on the final play of the
first half to give Taylor a 28-0
lead.
Both teams traded punts in the
third quarter, with Meacham,
Armstrong, Tyler. Jenkins and
Jarquis Ellis coming up with big
defensive plays and the Bulldogs
fumbling and recovering the ball
three times to kill drives.
Vernon finally got on 'the
scoreboard early in the fourth
quarter thanks to a big 23-yard
scramble by the Yellow Jacket QB
on a blitz that set up a five-yard
TD run with 8:08 to play in the
game.
The Bulldogs responded with
one last score of their own,

plays behind the rushing of

Ellis had a huge 20-yard end
around run on the drive and Tucker
capped it off with an 18-yard
touchdown run of his own.
Crowley's PAT bounced off the
left upright to make the final score
34-8.
Jenkins had a huge defensive
series on Vernon's next-to-last
possession, sacking the


quarterback for a six-yard loss on a
fumbled gnap, deflecting the
second down pass for an
incompletion and pressuring the
QB on a third down incompletion
to force a punt.
Vernon had one last chance to
score and made the final stats look
more respectable with a 60-yard

straight pass attempts from the

WHAT WOULD JESUS DO? No.1


JESUS WOULD GIVE TO THE POOR
By Bill Blue
Jesus taught believers have a responsibility to give to the hungry,
poor and needy (Matt. 25:31-46). David wrote, "Blessed is:he who
considers the poor; The Lord will deliver him in time of trouble" (Psalm
41:1). Consider also what Proverbs has to say:

"Happy is he who is gracious to the poor--he who is gracious to
the needy honors Him [God]" (Prov.,14:21, 31).
"He who mocks the poor taunts his Maker" (Prov. 17:5).
"One who is gracious to a poor man lends to the LORD, And He will
repay him for.his good deed" (Prov. 19:17).
"He who shuts his ear to the cry of the poor Will also cry himself
and not be answered".(Prov. 21:13).
"He who is generous will be blessed, For he gives some of his food
to the poor" (Prov. 22:9).
"He who gives to the poor will never want, But he who shuts his eyes
will have many curses" (Prov. 28:27).

Jesus felt compassion for the hungry (Matt. 15:32; Mark 8:2-3). On -
nmuliple occasions, Jesus fed them himself (Matt. 15:32-38; John 6:1-
14 e en though He had no homeon this earth of His own (Matt. 8:20;
Luke 9:58). In 1 Corinthians, Paul points out that unless we too are
rro\ ated b\ l"' e for hlie one receiving our gifts, then our obedience
t,- God's om.-maind has profnted us nothing spiritually. "Though I bestow
all mi goods.to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned,
but ha', e not love, it profits me nothing" (1 Cor. 13:3).

If our guiding principle is to consider "what would Jesus do," then
we .too will feed the poor and be less concerned about our material
prosperity. In the story of the "Rich Young Ruler" (Matt. 19:16-26;
Mark 10:17-31; Luke 18:18-27), Jesus provided this additional
instruction to a man who had faithfully kept God's commandments,
"If you wish to be complete [or perfect], go and sell your possessions
and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come,
follow Me" (Matt. 19:21). The lesson here isn't that we must give all
we have to the poor, but rather to emphasize how Christians should
think first of others and less of material possessions (Matt. 6:19-24,
22:36-40).

The opportunities for following Jesus' teachings to give to:the poor-are I
endless. As Jesus said, "For you have the poor with you always, and
whenever you wish you may do them good" (Mark 14:7).

Jesus' concern for the poor is a proof that He is the Christ. When
John the Baptist was imprisoned, he sent a question to Jesus, asking if
He was the Expected One. Part of Jesus', answer to John was, "the
poor have the gospel preached to them" (Matt. 11:2-5; Luke 7:22; see
also Luke 4:18). Of course, this verse demonstrates that Jesus' concern
for the poor is not limited to their physical well-being, but their spiritual
well-being as well. When evangelizing, do we consider the poor, or
do we cherry-pick those whom we believe are "good prospects" for
the church? James warned against this form of discrimination when
he wrote "have you not made distinctions among yourselves, and
become judges with evil motives? If you show partiality, you are
committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors" (James
2:4, 9).

The benevolent responsibility of individual Christians is broader than
the church's authority to spend congregational funds. Paul said thatan"
individual Christian's responsibility to "do good," is not limited to other
Christians. "Let us do good to all men, and especially to those who are
of the household of the faith" (Gal. 6:10). However, the New Testament
pattern for using congregational funds is limited to examples of
churches giving to other Christians. For example, in Acts 11:27-30
Christians in Antioch collected a "contribution for the relief of the
brethren living in Judea." Consider also how James instruct individuals
that; "Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is
this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress," without reference
to whether they were believers (James 1:27), but churches took care of
only Christian widows (1 Tim. 5:16; Acts 6:1). The New Testament
pattern for using congregational funds is limited to benefiting the poor,
needy, or wanting Christians (2 Cor. 8:4, 9:1, 9:12; Rom. 15:26, Phil.
4:16, etc.). Thus, the Scriptures indicate that a congregation's authority
and responsibility for benevolent activity is not as broad as the
responsibility given to individual Christians.

Spiritually speaking, we should recognize that we are all poor, and
rely upon God's help for our spiritual sustenance (Matt. 5:3).

Jesus' teachings on giving are commandments by which we will be
judged. "Everlasting punishment" is reserved for the unmerciful and
uncompassionate who fail to feed the hungry and clothe the needy, but
eternal life is promised to those who follow Jesus' teachings on, and
examples of, compassionate giving (Matt. 25:31-46; see also James


2:13). This article is reprinted online at http://wwwv.bibleweb.com.

Editorial


B-2 Taco Times September 27, 2006


Coal plants of today are



'dinosaurs of tomorrow'


Dear Editor
This air is your air; this air is my
air.
From coast to coast and border
to border folks like you and I are
fighting to keep the air we breathe
clean for future generations.
Coal plants as we know them
today are dinosaurs of tomorrow'
and if the industry (electric) is not
willing to take on the challenge of
investing in clean energy, then it is
up to the millions of Americans
who want to breathe fresh air every
day to challenge them and try to
' make a difference for the future.
The emission stack heigth is 700
feet; this height is designed to be-
high enough to prevent downwash
of the emissions plume. According


~m-hh -


to TEC this stack height, which
conforms to good engineering
practices, will enhance the
disperison of emissions resulting
in lower ground-level
concentrations of inhaleable
surrounding pollutants, and give
the counties to the north,, east and
south a taste of it.
You can't deny that King Coal
supports and destroys but why
should the future of the world be
sacrificed for big industry to make
big profits?
The United States has the
potential to be the largest wind-'
producing farm in the world; there
is enough wind power, if
harnessed, across'the mid-west to,
power, every home in the country.


It does not require buying huge
tracks of land, it does not require
building rail lines.it does not need
digging up tons of coal and
destroying the mountains and
countryside. It will not pollute our
waters and air. It is clean, it is safe,
but alas it will not make profits for
those industries. One farmer who
has windmills on her land (didn't
bother the cows either) stated, "as
long as I see those mills turning I
know I will get paid."
Have you heard of geothermal.
heating and cooling? Dig a ditch ,
:.around your home eight feet deep-;
and install piping; the natural"'
heating and cooling of the. earth

Differences between the political parties?


Dear Editor:
The difference between a
Democrat and Republican elected
official in Taylor County is often
not that great. Taylor County is a
conser\ati\e county where we
expect people to love and provide.
for their families, work hard for a
honest day's wage and help our
neighbors when they need
assistance. Folks here believe the-
Bible is God's inerrant Word and
His Word gives instruction for how
we should live our hi es.
At the national and state level,


Demnocrasi and Republicans differ
greatly. The clearest way to
identify the chasm between
Demmocrats and Republicans is who
has been chosen as their political
leaders. For Republicans, its
chosen leaders are Bill Frist in the
U.S. Senate and Dennis Hastert in
the U.S. House of Representatives..
These men are conservative
leaders who would be 'quite at'
home here in Taylor County. For
Democrats, their chosen leaders'
are Harrm Reid in the U.S. Senate
and Nancy Pelosi in the U.S.


House. 'Harry Reid is a divisive
leftist leading the likes of Ted
Kennedy and Hillary Clinton.
Nancy Pelosi is so far'to the left,
she could be called a socialist as,,
she takes your hunting rifle away.
Neither Democrat leader would be'
elected to dog catcher in -Taylor
County. ,
At the state level; Republicans :
have continuously chosen
conservative leaders in the'"
legislature. In the Florida

couldn't do it and to take him to the
emergency room. Thank God he
was okay.
I should have written this letter
then, but I took my problem to the
new Director of Taylor County
Health. Department Steve Tullos.'
He assured me that things were
changing for the better.
This last time I received a call
from the school that my child was
running a temperature and. sore
throat.. I called our health
department for an appointment and
was told they couldn't see him
today. The nurse told me why don't
I take him to-Dr. Khodr's office? I
told her if I could afford him I
wouldn't be-bothering her. She
then informed me my only option
was to take him to. the emergency
room. I then hung up with her and
called the director. I thought I
could get a little help from him
considering all the other screw-
ups. I was wrong. I was told
evidently they were booked up. Of
-course I didn't'give him time to
finish. I hung-up on him. I'm tired
of playing nice. I then took my son
to the -emergency room. I'm a
single mother of two and make too
much money for Medicaid and not
enough for insurance. I signed up
for. the program at the 'hospital to
pay 100% of all emergency room
visits, for which I'm very grateful.
I also thank you Taylor County for
paying the three to six hundred
dollars of your tax money for my
, bill at the hospital instead of the
fifty dollars at our health
department. At least with the
hospital, I don't feel discriminated
against for being poor and made to
feel like a second class citizen.
