alleged assault case

Allegations that Magnolia Bay
Project Manager Charles "Chuck"
Olson struck local activist William
"Rick" Causey at a private forum
on Sept. 28 will not prompt any
action by the State Attorney's
When contacted Tuesday,
Assistant State Attorney Ernie
Page said he had been sent
information on the event from
Perry Police Department, but had
not received a probable cause
"W. withoutt thatt" Page said, "we
cannot go forward with the case.
What we have right now is just
some conflicting statements--a lot
of he said, she said, kind of thing.
We need information which will
prove beyond a reasonable doubt
that the altercation occurred .the
way, Causey said it .did."
When lead investigator in the
case, PPD Ptl. Dave Gorby, was
contacted later Tuesday, he said,
"At this time, there is not sufficient
evidence in the case to send a
probable cause affidavit to the
State Attorney's Office. Unless
someone comes forth' with
evidence that Olson actually struck
Causey, the case is dead. We will,
however, keep the investigation
The event stems from a "by
.invitation only" forum which was
held at the Elks 'Lodge by
Magnolia Bay Developer Dr. J.
Crayton Pruitt and members of his
team to discuss the project and
answer questions.
A report was filed by Gorby with
PPD, in which Causey said that
"he has been very outspoken in his
views against the project. He said
that he was attending the meeting
quietly, but the developer (Olson)
singled him out 'and asked him to

"red carpet" to await TCSO
Resource Off. Dewayne Bowden's
arrival with the West Palm Beach
Pam Layton and Harrell
Champion were then presented the
key to the city by Perry Mayor
Emily Ketring.
It was the children's turn next,
with hundreds of students
gathering at Forest Capital State
Museum and the Cracker
Homestead for the annual Heritage
Days field trips.

Ignoring a few light rain
showers, the children were
delighted by more than a dozen
demonstrators including a living
history Civil War camp and
By 6 p.m., the skies had
darkened and weather forecasters
were warning of storms, but the
rain remained westward as the
Great Bed Race started. Six teams
raced their beds around the
courthouse in a series of heats with
Crosspoint Baptist winning for the
second year in a row. The Gas
Light Parade and its antique cars
had just finished their own laps
around the courthouse square when
the rain finally arrived.
Despite the ensuing tornado
warnings and high winds, by
Saturday morning the area had

mostly dried off.
At 10 a.m. it was time for the
parade with enough clouds
remaining to provide the throngs of
residents lining Jefferson Street
some shade.
Airmedic One ushered in the
parade with a fly-over of the route,
and the bands and sirens and truck
radios began their calls. The parade
was filled with queens and
foresters, log trucks and
convertibles, Red Hats and Girl
Scouts with green berets.
The festivities at the park were
kicked off with Jamie Portwood
singing the national anthem. Pastor
Pat Ratilerson gave the invocation
and then the thousands in line for
the "World's Largest Free Fish Fry"
cheered as the plates were served.
The Albany Marine Band played

a number of patriotic tunes to
begin the day's entertainment. The
2004 Florida Entertainment of the
Year winner, Chris Curles,
returned along with the Dry
County Band, playing a number of
country and rock hits.

Fort White owned the third
quarter, taking the second half
kickoff and driving 90 yards in
nine plays to score on a six-yard
TD pass.
The extra point kick sailed wide
right to make the score 21-18 in
favor of Taylor.
The Bulldogs went three and out
before Crowley's short punt gave
the Indians good field position at
the Taylor 47. Despite two tackles
for losses by Corey Sadler, the
Indians needed 10 plays to drive 53
yards and score on a two-yard QB
sneak to take a 25-21 lead.
However, Bradshaw made sure
the Indian lead was short-lived by
fielding a short kickoff and
picking up some nice blocks
before weaving his way 75 yards
for what would be the go-ahead
touchdown. Bradshaw cut across
the middle of the field and sped
past the entire Indian defense on
the way to an electrifying score
that put the Bulldogs up 27-25.
Bradshaw, Armstrong, McGrew,
Jenkins and Drew Southerland
stepped up on defense and stuffed
the Indians, as QB Jared Gilmer
was sacked for a 12-yard loss that
forced a punt.
As the fourth quarter began, the
Bulldogs went back to its ground
game and handed off to Jackson
four straight plays before working
the option pitch and QB keeper.
Jackson picked up 34 yards on
four carries, Ellis had two carries
for 11 yards and Sneed had a seven
yard run before the Bulldogs drive
ended at the eight-yard line and
Crowley nailed a 25-yard field goal
to make the final score 30-25..
Proenza recovered a fumble on

By Bill Blue
In John 8, the scribes and the Pharisees (v. 3), seeking to test Jesus(v'.
.6); brought to Him a woman caught in the act of adultery (%v. 3-4),. and
asked the following question: "Moses. in the law, commanded us thai
such should be stoned. But what do You say?" (v. 5). Jesus responded
bN _aN ing. "He ho is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at
her first' t\. 7). "Then those who heard it, being convicted' by tliejr
conscience, went out one by one.... When Jesus had raised Himselfup
and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, 'Woman, where are those
accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?' She said,.'No one,
Lord.' And Jesus said to her, 'Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no
more'" (vV: 9-11).
What are the lessons we can learn from this story? What does itsay
about sexual immorality; is adultery no longer a sin? Are we toconclude
that in is wrong for Christians to judge behavior and condemn sin? Are
there no longer any consequences to sin in the New Testament era? What
would Jesus say?
Jesus would not excuse adultery. Although Jesus said that He did not
condemn the woman. she w as unquestionably an adulteress (John 8:3-41.
In other Scriptures. Jesus says that adultery is on par with things that are
eil (Malt. 12:391 and wicked (Matt. 16:4.1, and, like murder, adultery
'il.sa mn iMlatt. 15:18-19i. Jesus says that adultery is a sin that can
cast ouTnop hell'l(ait. 5-27-30j. Whatever the lessons of John 8 are:
one cannot conclude that Jesus does not consider adultery a sin. Jesus.
rather, unlike the scribes and the Pharisees, was not willing to condemn
the woman to death by stoning.
Jesus does not condemn judging, but unrighteous judgment. The woman
in John 8 was an adulteress (John 8:3-4), but her accusers were not
motivated by righteous judgment or disdain tfor sin, but a desire to test
Jesus, "that they might have something of which to accuse Him" (John
8:6). The scribes and Pharisees sought to trap Jesus by His answer to
their question. Jesus did not immediately answer the question, but gavei
the appearance of ignorng it (John 8:6). Not wanting Jesusto escape,:
the scribes and Pharisees repeated their question until Jesus said, "He:
who is % without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first." No one
threw a stone and all of the woman's accusers left her and Jesus alone
(John 8-9-11). In their zeal to trap Jesus, the scribes and Pharisees had
allowed their own improper motives to blind their judgment. With one
statement ("He w ho is without sin among you"), Jesus caused the woman's -
accusers to be "convicted by their conscience" (John 8:7. 9).
Jesus' statement to the accusers did not condemn judging, but caused
the accusers to consider their own motives. The men came to realize that
they were actually willing to kill a woman if necessary to discredit Jesus.
Jesus did not'fault the scribes and Pharisees for accusing,the woman of:
adultery because the accusation was true. Rather, Jesus pointed out that
the reason why they brought the adulteress to Jesus in the first place was
'hypocritical. .
Jesus' statement to the woman's accusers is similar to His other teachings
on judging: .
And why do you look at the speck in your brother's eye, but do hot
perceive tihe plank in your own eye? 4"Or how can you say to yoir brother,
'Brother, let me remove the speck that is in your eye.' when you yourself
do not see the plank that is in your owneye? Hypocrite! First remove
the plank from your own eye, and then you-will see clearly to remove-ihe
.speck that is in your brother's eye. ""For a good tree does not bear-E d
fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. 44For.every tree is known byils
own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather
grapes from a bramble bush. (Luke 6:41-44; see also Matt, 7:1-5).
Jesus does not condemn judging, but emphasizes the need for righteous.
genuine, and sincere judgment (John 7:24; Rom. ,2:1-3): One cannot
know the difference between good and bad fruit without judging (Liike
6:43). -
Matthew 7:1-2 is often misquoted by people wio believe judging is
unscriptural. "Judge not, that yof be notjudged. For with what judgment
you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be
measured back to you." Verse 2, however, emphasizes the importance of
sincere, non-hypocritical judgment. Verse 6 goes on to show that judgm~W t
is required: "Do not. give what is'holy to the dogs; nor cast your perls
before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear
you in pieces" (Matt. 7:6). One cannot know who is a "dog" or "swine"
without judging.
Righteous judgment is a necessary activity for a spiritually healthy
Christian. The Christian first looks inward and judges himself (1 Cor.
11:28-29; 2 Cor. 13:5; Gal. 6:4), and removes "the plank from his own
eye" (Luke 6:42). Then the Christian uses his judgment to avoid
temptation and immoral and evil.company (1 Cor. 5:9; 1 Cor. 15:33).
In next week's article, we will examine Jesus' statement to the, "Neither
do I condemn you; go and sin no more" (John 8:12). "

Being a good neighbor has always been our goal. That means making responsible decisions, like choosing
the technology that's best for our new power plant and for you.
We looked closely at every option. We even ,considered a newly developing technology called Integrated
Gasification Combined Cycle. Ultimately, we chose an advanced, proven technology called Supercritical
Pulverized Coal. This is the best choice because it:

achieves very low emissions
has been proven to operate reliably
is more, cost-effective

Since we plan to be your neighbor for many years to come, we're working hard to make responsible decisions
in the community today.

B-1 Taco Times November 1, 2006

Vote'yes' for jobs

One of the items that will appear on
your ballot next Tuesday is a local
initiative to re-authorize the 20-plus-
year-old tax abatement program to
help lure new jobs here.
We strongly encourage you to vote
"yes" on this issue.
To our knowledge the tax
abatement program has only been
used once -- to assist with Lance's
(formerly Tom's Foods) expansion
here instead of in Texas.
We believe that investment was well
worth the 52 additional jobs that
were created here.
Having the program in place also
shows businesses that the people
here support quality job creation.
The local tax abatement program is

a tool to lure good paying jobs to our
community. But it is not automatic.
Once the voters approve the
measure, an applicant for the
abatement must convince the county
commission that it is creating quality
jobs before it can be authorized.
Taylor Countians have for years
supported economic development
and the jobs it creates.
Giving our local officials the tools
they need to be successful at this
endeavor seems logical.
The ballot issue appears following
the eight proposed constitutional
amendments. It is titled: "Property
Tax Exemption Referendum."
Please vote "yes" on this most
important local issue.

Dear Editor:
I speak from experience when I
say Taylor Countykshould welcome
the Taylor Energy Center.
In Putnam County we have been
host to two units at Seminole
Electric's power plant since the
mid-1980s. Seminole is currently
.adding a third unit, which will
increase the capacity at the plant
by 60 percent, making our plant
almost three times the size of the
Taylor Energy Center.
ImproVements planned in
conjunction with Unit .3 will
eliminate process wastewater
discharges to the St. Johns River
(cooling water will continue to be
discharged) and keep emissions
Byproducts are being delivered

by conveyor directly to a
manufacturing plant next door and
made into wallboard for Florida's
boonung construction indtiitry.
A lot of the cost of the Putnam
Count) plant, like the TEC, is in
pollution control equipment, and
emissions are very low. There have
been no complaints, and dire
predictions from opponents of
Serrunole's plant when it was first
proposed haven't come to pass. On
the other hand, the jobs a plant like
this creates offer a living wage,
and they are primary jobs, the type
of jobs that create community
wealth. '
Based on, our experience, in
Putnam County. you can also
expect property values in' the area
to be unaffected. Residential

development in the vicinity of the,
Seminole site, which maintains a
wide buffer, is continuing, and
expensive homes are being built
along the St. Johns River just south
of the plant boundary. Finally, our
experience shows that the plant
can be counted on to be a strong
community partner, active in all
aspects of community life and a
substantial supporter of
community projects.
The plant's employees will be
involved as volunteers in the
community. Overall, you can
expect the plant to be a great asset
to Taylor County.

Midweek Muddle

Local on the 8s

BD, qcICAh

We barely said "hello"to the daughter when
her car slid into the driveway Friday night,
ushered in -by torrents of rain and bolts of
"Get in the hall," said the father who had
been watching the Weather Channel's report
that a tornado had been spotted at Secotan
Tqwer, in Taylor County and was heading
toward Boyd..
"That's us," he said.
"In the hallway, we caught up on the news
for about 10 minutes and listened to the
radio broadcast of the football game being
played in Ft. White. "Taylor County just
scored!" the son declared, being shushed by
the father who so wanted the weather
people to quit making nice and let him know
where ,that wicked tornado was.
Eventually, the daughter, who grows w early
with the father's fascination for weather
said, "I think we survived. Can' I have
something to eat now?"
"One day..." he said, not finishing his
sentence. We know the whole sentence,
anyway: "One day, all of you are going to
wish that you had paid attention to my
warnings. But that's okay; go ahead and
mock me. Just remember, one day..."
The rain continued to fall through the
night but on Saturday, the weather was
Festival-perfect: blue bird skies and bright
sunshine. Firetrucks were passing by me in
a blur of sirens when I felt my cell phone
vibrating in my purse.
It was my aunt, calling from Alabama, but
I knew I had no chance of hearing what she
was saying in the midst of this parade, and I
was afraid it would alarm her to hear my
voice against what sounded like air drills in
So I delayed my call-back until the' floats
had passed and the crowds had meandered
out to Forest Capital Park for food and
"Hi, I'm sorry I missed your call," I said,
and that was all the introduction I needed to,
"Can you talk?" she asked, and a 20-minute
report followed.
"Your Aunt Mary and I decided to drive to
Andalusia yesterday to see Nell in the
nursing home," she said.
"Well that was nice," I said, and then I
asked, "The weather wasn't bad there?"
"Oh it was horrible," she said. "There were
tornadoes everywhere you looked."
"So why were y'all driving to Andalusia in
the tornadoes?"


My ..ll I. L.ilwwl il
"Well, we hadn't seen Nell in a while, and
there's not a whole lot'you can do whenthe
weather is bad anyway."
"Did your daughter know?" I asked, with a
hint of authority, and she sensed, my
chiding. ,
"Well, yes," said this 83-1 ear-old aunt who
drives a sporty black Acura. "She wasn't
really happy about it--wanted us to be sure
to tune into local radio stations so we'd
know about the weather warnings. But I1
thought to myself, what in the world can we
,do about the weather?" -
"So anyway," she said, ignoring all my :
mature concern, "after we visited with Nell,,.
we realized we hadn't seen Vivian in Ft.
Walton, Fla., in awhile, so we drove to her:
house...and the weather did get bad. But the
traffic's not so bad when the weather is;
most people stay in their houses and you
pretty much have the road to yourself."
"Hazel," I said chastising her 'strongly.
"Y'all don't have any business out on rural
Alabama and Florida roads in, tornadoes.
You can go visiting any day of the week. On
rainy days, you need to' cook soup and clean
out the linen closet."
She was laughing with such glee we could
hardly continue the conversation. "Well,'
isn't this a turn-about?" she asked.
"Suddenly, the children are concerned about
parents on the road in all kinds of weather
and at all hours of the day and night. It's
about time," she said:
Then she added, "I told my daughter that
if we met our Maker, they could have our
funerals together--the same people would be
coming anyway, It would be a two-for-one
and she might even get a break on the cost."
The contrast was remarkable. My little
family of four sat in a hallway waiting for a
tornado which, thankfully, never showed,
and my 80-year-old elders decided to take a
road trip through downed power lines.
"One day...." I could hear myself wanting to
say, but I stopped. There is clearly'
something invincible, and charming, about
being 80 years old. These two-- who used to
be three-- have lived through the
Depression, World War II, sent children to
Viet Nam, buried husbands, had trees fall
through their houses during hurricanes,
faced open heart surgery and stared death in
the face time after time, after time.
A tornado?
It's just weather... and they surely know by
now, there's not a thing in the world you can
do about the weather.

'It's wrong to allow our elected officials to lead us to coal plant'

Continued from page B-1
The air is so poisoned in Texas that
mayors from 17 Texas cities, citing
poor air quality across the state,
vowed to fight construction of
more than a dozen coal plants
unless regulators consider all
options that could lead to cleaner
air. Despite this danger, many of
our elected officials still believe
we should support the coal plant.
Take a look out your window.
You'll likely see white billowy
clouds in a beautiful sea blue sky
and magnificent trees extending
their branches upwards with
peaceful grace. You wouldn't think
there is an air pollution problem
here. But you are wrong--
Tallahassee has one of the highest

levels of particle pollution in the
state. It blows here from other
parts of the country. These
invisible microscopic particles are
so small that they escape the
lungs' natural defense mechanisms
and can directly enter the
bloodstream. Once inside, the
particles seem to cause the blood
vessels to spasm--causing heart
attacks. One in 50 heart attacks is
thought to be caused by air
Here's what air pollution causes:
Emergency room visits,
hospitalizations and missed
Stunted fetal growth and infant
Increased asthma attacks.
Learning problems in children.

The deaths of nearly 25,000
Americans annually.
The Capital Medical Society,
Tallahassee Pediatric Foundation
and the local chapter of the
American Lung Association
oppose the plant. The Florida and
Georgia Medical Associations
have passed resolutions warning
against the dangers of coal plants.
I've never seen a patient who has
benefited from smoking; if he or
she was incredibly lucky enough to
escape health problems, the cost of
cigarettes caused severe financial
hardship. Many of the poisons and
carcinogens that belch from the
smokestacks of coal plants are also
found in cigarettes,

Economic impacts of plant are 'tremendous'

Dear Editor:
I have held back from writing
concerning the coal plant from the
beginning. I now feel I must do so.
There has been so much said about
this issue that confuses everyone,
but let's look at the overall picture.
When this plant is finished, it
will be built with environmental
specifications that are for 20 years
down the road. They would be
foolish not to. The coal plant
would only have to accommodate
to the specs in the future, why not
do them ahead of time. Therefore,
we will have one of the most up-to-

date facilities in the state.
Jobs-'-there will be jobs for a lot
of Taylor Countians, from labor to
engineering jobs and'management.
By building lhis plant, it allows
young people to make a choice of
staying in Taylor County and
getting a good paying job or
moving on. But by having that
choice they at least have the
opportunity to stay, something they
did not have before.
The economic impacts on the
community will be tremendous.
The up front monies from the plant
to the city, county and schools are

outstanding. This is something that
they do not have to do. Besides the
monies from the plant, the
businesses of the county are going
to prosper, therefore other jobs
open up.
We have been industry-starved
in this county for too long. The
coal plant can only enhance other
industries coming to Taylor
Taylor County is growing, Since
I was in high school some 26 years
ago, so much has come. Drive

-'Constitution has been amended

The results of the Florida

announced its intention to place

TEC public health advisor answers questions on coal plant
ino. akealebyr. ut. the

Dear Editor:
As the Taylor Energy Center
moves forward with permitting,
one of our goals is to be the first
and best source of information
regarding the project. Recently,
people have asked some questions
about plant emissions. As always,
we have done our best to answer
the questions and provide residents
the most objective information
available. Here are the most asked
questions and answers on public
Q: Does the Taylor Energy
Center look at the cumulative

effect of emissions from both the
power plant and Buckeye?
A: Yes. During the permitting
process, if the plant's emissions
exceed levels that are so low they
don't require analysis (known as
"de minimus" levels), we must
perform air modeling that takes
into account not only the power
plant's emissions but also the
emissions of other sources in the
area. In this way, we can consider
the possibility of cumulative
Q: How far away is the
"maximum concentration" for

air emissions?
A: The area of maximum
concentration for air emissions can
vary in location from a few
hundred feet away from the plant
to several miles away. In any case,
even the plant's projected
maximum concentrations will be
far below the health-based
standards set by the state of Florida
and the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency. All health-
based standards must be met both
within and beyond the boundaries
of the Taylor Energy Center

Q: What happens to the
material you trap in the emission
control devices?
A: Some of the materials are
converted into harmless substances
and released into the air. For
