Taylor Tech offers Spanish class
By POLLY WALLER
Taylor Technical Institute will
offer a 30-hour conversational
Spanish class under the
community education category
starting Monday, Nov. 6, from

The cost of the class is $35 plus a

If ever there was a Florida
county as wild and remote as our
own Taylor, it would have to be
our neighbor to the south, the
county of Dixie. The two counties
have a lot in common, the long
pristine coastlines, large swaths of
forest lands and plenty of fish,
game and wildlife.
It's those same remote
woodlands and abundance of
wildlife that sets the scene of the
locally popular novel "September's
Fawn." Set in 1950's Dixie County,
this heart-rending tale is William
Culyer Hall's first novel. But what
a first novel it is.
It begins in 1999, when retired
wildlife officer Josiah Moore
receives a call from a man aiming
to be Florida's next governor.
Josiah is forced to disclose a dark
secret he's harbored for years as
the novel takes us back to 1952 and
vil lurking ini the .treacherous
Dixie County swamps.,
* During his first days as a rookie
officer, Josiah entered the
~-* -~-. -
California Swamp attempting to
solve an ongoing mystery. People
were vanishing and had been for
years. He solved the mystery, but
emerged a worn and darkened man
having experienced a lifetime of
both joy and sorrow in one
turbulent week. Now, almost five
decades later, he must take this
man who would-be governor back
into the swamp.
_I' mistakenly started reading this
book at work one day. Once I got
started, customers that strolled into
the Book Mart were on their own.
Puling it down actually pained
me. I had to find out what was
going on. Mr. Hall led me through
twists and turns, not just winding
his way through the vivid and life-
like descriptions of the swamps
and woodlands, but through plot
thickening and tangles as well. '
: While reading the last chapter of
"September's Fawn," I was filled
'with a sense of dread. Not because
of what I was afraid was, going to
liappen, but because I knew I was
approaching the end of a beautiful
story. I'll leave you with a quote
from one of the characters of the
"Fawns belong to be born in
May or June; give 'em time to
learn the ropes of survivin' before
winter, sets in. A fawn born in
September has little chance. The
end is 'most always in the beginning'
for September's fawn. Red Tybee,

Lakeland. After majoring in

WHAT WOULD JESUS DO? No. :
JESUS WOULD NOT DIVORCE A
SPOUSE FOR ANY REASON OTHER
By Randy Baker
Jesus, through the word of God, states that He has high expectations
for us. "If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and fake
up his cross, and follow me" (Matthew 16:24). We are blessed to have
Jesus' words for guidance so we can rightly handle difficult challengges.
When we're facing a temptation to divorce a spouse, we may ask "what
would Jesus do?" When listening to Jesusf words, what pattern can we-
observe that would provide us guidance on how to handle this emotion-
Jesus spoke of divorce and remarriage during His sermon on the mount.
"It was said also, 'Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a
writing of divorcement,' but I say unto. you, that every one that putteth
away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, maketh herait-
adulteress: and whosoever shall marry her when she is put away
committeth adultery" (Matthew 5:31-32). According to Vine's Dictionary,
the word fornication means "illicit sexual intercourse," any sexual
relations with one who is not a proper marriage partner. What are we to
learn from this passage? Jesus has a very limited view on what is
r acceptable divorce, Anyreason for divorce, other than-foi-ication, is
wrong in Jesus' sight. On judgment day, we certainly donit want to be
guilty of living in continual adultery with a partner that was not rightfully
In Matthew 19, the Pharisees questioned Jesus about divorce. "And
there came unto him Pharisees, trying him, and saying, 'Is it lawful for a
man to put away his wife for every cause?' 4And he answered and said,
'Have ye not read, that he who made them from the beginning made
them male and female, sand said, For this cause shall a man leave his
father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and the two shall become ,-
one flesh? 6So. that.they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore_
God hath joined, together, let not man put asunder.' 7They say unto him,
'Why then did Moses command to give a bill of divorcement, and to put
her away?' "He saith unto them, 'Moses for your hardness of heart suffered
you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it hath not beentso.
9And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except for
fornication, and shall marry another, committeth.adultery: and he that
marrieth her when she is put away committeth adultery.' "The disciples
say unto him, 'If the case of the man is so with his wife, it is not expedient
to marry.' "But he said unto them, 'Not all men can receive-this saying,
but they to whom it is given. "For there are eunuchs, that were so born
from their mnotheris womb: and there are eunuchs, that were made eunuchs
by men:' and there are eunuchs, that made themselves eunuchs for the
kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive
it" (Matt. 19:3-12).
Notice the surprise in the disciples' response in verse 10. They knew
this was a demanding teaching! Jesus goes on to say that many will not
be willing to receive that truth, but it didn't change His command. In
verse 12, Jesus states that there will be some, who when they've
understood' this teaching, will realize they need to make themselves
eunuchs to be acceptable to Him in the kingdom. Vine's Dictionary
states the word eunuch here means "voluntarily abstaining from
wedlock." One example application of verse 12 is a person whi4s.
married to a second mate and one (or both) of them was previosii4y
divorced for reasons other than the adultery/fornication that Jesus spoke
of. The only way to heed Jesus' strict teaching is to demonstrate
repentance of the continuing sin of adultery that occurs when living with
the wrong partner that is not theirs in G6d's sight. They would need to
discontinue this sin (and marriage) and make themselves eunuchs for
the Lord's sake, for obedience sake.
Jesus spoke of John the Baptist when He said "This is he, of whom it
is written, 'Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, Who shall
prepare thy way before thee'" (Matthew 11:10). John's position on divorce
and remarriage was the same as Jesus', and eventually John was beheaded
for it. "For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and
bound him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip's wife;
for he had married her. "For John said unto Herod, 'It is not lawful-for
thee to have thy brother's wife'" (Mark 6:17). Herod had married. a
divorcee, but he and his new wife were unwilling to respond to the truth
about the matter.
What does Jesus instruct about divorce? He shows that the pattern
from the beginning was to "leave father and mother" and "cleave" to our
mate. He provides for only one allowance for divorce, and that is for the
sake of fornication. He also shows that the price of repentance in this
area is very high. "I hate putting away, saith Jehovah" (Malachi 2:16),

While many lesser known groups have attempted to emulate the Beatles,
fans won't have to squint their eyes at a Return concert to travel back in
time. In fact, they just might believe it's 1964 and you're sitting in t&ie
original CBS Ed Sullivan Theatre or even Shea Stadium.
Besides an uncanny resemblance, each member of The Return has to hit
original counterpart: the peculiar stance Lennon took in front of ;
microphone, the way Harrison strapped on his Gretsch Country
Gentleman guitar, the famous head bounce Ringo used to kept time and
even a left handed McCartney on an original Hofner violin bass. The
Return brings exceptional musical and vocal skills to each performance:
Every detail from The Beatles' early live performance years has been' ,
studied and carefully recreated. From the mop-top haircuts and English
tailored suits, to the actual instruments and stage equipment, The Return's
authenticity gives new audiences and many older fans a performance
unlike any they have ever witnessed.
So realistic are their performances, The Return, gaining national
recognition, was invited to appear on the ABC network television shoW
Good Morning America.

ALBANY MARINE BAND
Formed in 1990, the Albany Marine Band became one of only 12 bands
throughout the Marine Corps. Stationed at the Marine Corps Logistics
Base in Albany, Ga., the band of 50 Marines travels throughout the United c
States and internationally to fulfill its mission of serving as musical
ambassadors, providing music for military ceremonies, community
celebrations, recruiting programs and official events. Although this band
primarily serves as a ceremonial ensemble, the band also performs as a
marching band, concert band, brass and woodwind quintets, jazz combo,
show band and Dixieland band.
In December of 2003, the Albany Marine Band was awarded the :
distinguished "Commander in Chief Installation Excellence Award." ;
Signed by the Secretary of Defense, this award recognized the members of :
the Albany Marine Band for their pride and commitment in performing:
In 2005, the band traveled more than 76,000 miles to perform over 220
commitments in locations such as Parris Island, S.C., New Orleans, La,' *
Stamford, Conn., Cedar Falls, Iowa, Canton, Ohio, and West Liberty, Ky.
The Albany Marine Band performed for more than five million people
worldwide including those in attendance at the 50th annual Florida Forest
With music-as-their primary mission, all JNarines in the bald. are
selected by audition and must maintain a high level of instrumental'
proficiency. Additionally, with the Marine Corps tradition of "every
Marine a rifleman," all Marines in the band are fully trained to fulfill their
secondary mission of bearing arms in the defense of our nation. Above and
beyond their musical and military roles, each Marine has supplementary
administrative responsibilities within the band to support the. unit's high
Marine Corps bands are composed of men and women who are the
proud bearers of a heritage dating back to the whistling fifes and rolling i
drums of the first Marine musicians in 1775. A long-standing tradition of
excellence and service to Corps and country is their legacy, and it is op.
which they willingly embrace. They are the few, the proud, the,Marines1.

Coal opponents at hearing spotlighted
Economic developer urges
'yes' vote on tax incentives
waived due to our rural county
status, so the local cost for this
portion of the incentive package
was $62,400 over five years, or
$12,480 per year. Let's look at ad
valorem taxes for a minute.
Without considering depreciation,
the new taxes on the capital
investment approximate $59,000
The maximum tax amount
exempted will be 50 percent of the
new taxes, capped at $36,000 a
year. So if we use a depreciation
rate of 8.5 percent, total new ad
valorem taxes generated in the
next ten years would be over
$360,000, of which half would be
exempted. This leaves over
$180,000 in new ad valorem tax
The local Taylor County
ordinance, originally adopted in
2003, has two components. The..
job creation component 'will
reward Lance with $700 per job, or
$36,400 for the 52 quality jobs
they committed to. The capital
improvement component provides
an incentive of $1,000 per'
$100,000 added to tax rolls, with a
max of $50,000. This incentive
equals a total of $86,400.
Now let's .talk payroll. These
new quality jobs will add over $1,
million annually to our local
economy. Those dollars are rolled
over in a community (spent more
than once locally; the statistics say
up to eight times). Using a rollover
factor of only two, Taylor County's
one percent sales tax revenue
would be increased by over
$20,000 per year.
So now we do the math. Over
the ten-year period, the county
commission exempted just over
$180,000 in ad valorem taxes,
spent $60,400 in QTI bonus, and
provided a local incentive of
$86,400 in order to ensure we
landed those jobs here. On the plus
side, we derived $180,000 in. new
ad valorem tax revenue and over
$200,000 in new sales tax revenue.
So the county commission gave up
$320,800 to receive over
$380,000. Oh, -let's not forget the
new ad valorem taxes the school
system' ($340,491) and the city
($209,967) will also receive, all
due to Lance's decision to expand
here. From a. community-wide
standpoint, $320,800 .given up for
a return of $930,458. The Taylor
County Development Authority
(TCDA) thinks this is good

This increase in tax revenue
helps your children in school, it
helps the city provide services you
want, it helps keep your taxes from
rising faster, it helps the local
economy's ship ride a little higher!
The ten-year authorization for
county and city governments to
grant tax exemptions expires this
In November, the citizens of tie
city and county will be asked to
reauthorize the granting of
appropriate tax exemptions by he
local governing bodies.
I hope the voters, as they cast
their ballots, remember this critical
tool as being significant to o0r
success with convincing Lance to
expand here rather in Texas.
