An investigation into a stolen
debit card led to the arrest of four
individuals last week, some of who
were in possession of a "large"
amount of cocaine.
The owner of the debit card
reported it lost or stolen Monday,

places the card had been used in
two days as well as the amounts.
The list included retail stores,

Red Hats give details
on September events
By CHERYL GREGORY, Publicity
September was a very busy month for the Roseheads, Perry's original
chapter of the Red Hat Society.
On Saturday, Sept. 16, member Thelma Birdwell celebrated her 90th
birthday. Six members of the Roseheads joined other Red Hatters, family
and friends to wish Mrs. Birdwell "Happy Birthday." The party was held
from 2 to 4 p.m. at the First Baptist Church in downtown Monticello.
Each table was .covered with a red or purple tablecloth and had a red or
purple hat as the centerpiece. Punch, cake and a tasty assortment of foods
were enjoyed by everyone.
Eleven members gathered at the home of Queen Mother Hattie Adams
on the afternoon of Thursday, Sept. 21, to make plans for the group's float
entry in the Forest Festival Parade. Delicious cake, warm pie and cold
beverages were served.
The monthly luncheon/meeting of the Roseheads was held Saturday,
Sept. 30, at Sisters' Tea Room in downtown Perry. There were 22 Red
Hatters (50 and older) and two Pink Hatters (under 50) in attendance.
After welcoming everyone to the meeting, Laura Taylor led a discussion
of Breast Cancer Awareness. "October Is Breast Cancer Awareness month
and there are many ways we can help each other stay healthy," said Taylor.
She directed the ladies to the printed materials at each place setting.
Cheryl Gregory reported the 2007 Relay For Life information, giving
members an envelope of information and tickets to sell for the fall
fundraiser. Debi Limoges announced the balance in the club's account.
"Red Hat headquarters has sent our new charter," she said. "It is framed
and hung on the wall of the Tea.Room."

and that "we could search the
room. I walked to the first bed,
moved a red shirt and a bag of
cocaine fell out of it," Norris said.
Taylor County Sheriffs Office
Sgt. Charles Campbell asked
whose shirt it was and White said it
was his. At this time, all suspects
in the room were handcuffed so
that a more thorough search of the
room could be conducted.
TCSO Dep. Jay Ricketson also
arrived to assist.
During the search, four small
bags of suspected cocaine were
found, along with one large bag of
cocaine, two plastic straws with
cocaine residue, a silver spoon
(which can be used to cook crack
for smoking or injecting), six
baggips which had cocaine residue
in them, a can of baking powder
(Grambling later gave testimony
that White had been "cutting" the
cocaine with it), and a crack pipe.
A subsequent search of
Grambling's car revealed a plastic
straw with cocaine residue, a wood
box with White's name carved in it
which contained 13 baggies with
cocaine residue, a cigarette
wrapper with cocaine residue,
several baggies with cocaine
residue, and store receipts showing

White, Grambling and Barker
were arrested and taken to the
county jail. While there, Barker
told Norris that he and Hockaday
"had been snorting cocaine all day
in the room."
Norris said Grambling denied
any knowledge 'of the drugs and
paraphernalia discovered in the
motel and her vehicle.
"Grambling said she had rented
her vehicle out to White and
Hockaday, but had only gotten it
back a couple of hours prior to the
officers' arrival to the motel.
"Grambling admitted that she
uses cocaine, but denied any
knowledge of the stolen card or
some of the items purchased being
inside her vehicle," said Norris.
White also denied any
knowledge of the drugs found
inside the room or Grambling's
car," said Norris. "He said he
hadn't rented the vehicle from
Grambling and they have had the
vehicle for the last few days.
"While talking to White, I
noticed that he was wearing a new
pair of tennis shoes. White said
Hockaday had bought the shoes for
him at a department store with the
stolen debit card," he added.
During that same day, Ptl.
Campbell went back to the jail and

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

The commission as a board
traveled to Tallahassee in June to
discuss the issue and after more
than two hours of talks,, no
decision was made. DCA
representatives did, however, agree

IT'S NOT A DONE DEAL
IS TEC TELLING THE WHOLE STORY?
0 TEC told us one 800 MW coal plant with a large buffer.
* TEC claims they will be "Generating power with the best technology."
HERE'S THE TRUTH
m TEC,envisions multiple coal plants on.over 3,000 acres.
* TEC's technology is not even second best. Gasification is 70-90% cleaner.
* OurCounty Commission approved .a Resolution requiring TEC use ONLY the
cleanest, best available technology. TEC does NOT plan to use the best.
* JOBS: Local people have not been guaranteed jobs. Five people on the
County Commission should not make a decision to sacrifice our health for any
number of jobs.
OUR COUNTY COMMISSION MADE A BAD DEAL!
* Florida Power will pay Glades County $21 million per year to allow them to put a
polluting coal plant in their County.
* Taylor County Commissioners are selling out our County to TEC for $4.75 million
How much is your life worth?
Taylor County Commissioners plan to vote on a land use decision to change over
3,000 acres of agricultural land to Electric Power Generating Facility.
THANK YOU to the residents, scientists, physicians and clergy
who have attended meetings to show their opposition.

requiring cadets to carry five
rucksacks weighing 40 pounds
down a steep slope across a 50m-

slope on the opposite bank to the
other five waiting team members,

Fourth, the team had to cross a
stream 'using a one-rope bridge.
One member crossed the stream to
secure the rope to a tree on the
opposite side, then the remainder
constructed the bridge using a tree
and a combination of knots and
carabineers ("snap links" the things
people use to climb ropes with).
This was our best event and their
team worked extremely well'

two minutes and a timed two-mile
run. They did this after completing
everything else listed above
(simply motivating and inspiring).
The final day the team had a
fiye-mile timed' run and the
"ultimate" Raider competition.
. The five-mile run was along a
hilly route and one member
conducts, the "Ultimate Raider"
over, the gauntlet course (mud,
water and cold) and finishes by
cluribina iopc oer the 10-foot
wall. We finished llth out of 52
teams and received a fifth place
trophy for the rope bridge.
Needless to say those cadets
participating learned a lot
about themselves and each
other (mentally/physically), how
important character and teamwork
are and what those two things
"truly" mean. As always thank you

'Commissioners need to stop worrying about what's cheapest'
Continued from page B-4
presentation he did on coal plant
technologies before the zoning
Mr. West had done his
homework. He had thoroughly
researched coal plant technologies,
talked with the best experts, and
he had made a flawless
presentation to the zoning board.
Since he explained and compared
the differences in coal
technologies so well, I would like
to share some of his comments
with you. I'm sure he would like
for the general public to be well
educated, so that people can know
the truth about this coal plant
situation. They certainly won't
discover the truth reading coal
Mr. West said at the meeting,
"After studying, I find that,
actually, we have four kinds of coal
plants: We have the gasification
coal plant, and then there, are
others, such as subcritical,
supercritical, and ultra-
supercritical." And, referring to a
chart he'd given Zoning Board
members, West explained, "if you
look at it carefully, you'll see that
the gasification coal plant produces
the least amount of emissions of
any one of them. And, actually, if
you look at the numbers, the one
that is next best to gasification is
ultra-supercritical. The coal plant
that is suggested that we build here
comes in next after that. So, it's
actually the third best.
Gasification is by far the best
He said, "Now, even in the water
usage, if you notice down there
(still referring to the chart) where it
says 'raw water usage,' gasification
consumes, by far, the least amount
Mr. West went on to say that
IGCC or coal gasification
technology plants are "well-proven
and have achieved the lowest level
of pollutant air emissions of any
coal-fueled power plants in the
world. The emissions are trace, air
pollutants are extremely low. So,
it's not only proven, but it just
simply backs up the position that
gasification is the best way to go.
They said in that program that
IGCC (coal gasification) is a
maturing technology. Well, I can
say that it has matured. In fact,
there are four coal plants about to
be constructed using coal
gasification. And, I'm sure that
Duke Power and American Electric
Industries certainly would not go
ahead and build gasification plants
if it wasn't a proven technology, if
it wasn't the best available."
Referring to a TEC ad, Mr. West
said, "they (TEC) do make one
statement (in their ad), that it does
cost more. And, to me, that is
probably the main reason they're
reluctant to even want to go in that
direction. Well, we shouldn't think
about that. We're the ones who
have to live with this plant. And,
while it may cost more to begin
with, it also is proven that that kind
of coal plant, gasification, is the
most efficient; it's the best coal
plant you can get.
"So there 's no reason why we
should back away from taking the
position that, if you want to build a
coal plant in Taylor County, let's
build it with the best technology
that's available, and that is
There was great applause from a
room packed with people deeply
concerned about the coal plant.
Here wvas a man, serving on an
important local board who actually
took the time to research the issue
before him and who was so well
informed that he could explain this
complex issue with great ease and
make everyone in the room clearly
understand what should be done.
Mr. West made a motion to the
Zoning Board that they not accept
anything less than the best
available technology, coal
gasification, to be built in Taylor
County. The motion failed to pass
by only one vote, but Mr. West was
the winner. He was a winner
because, in a time 'of great public
pressure to allow TEC to put in a
cheaper, more polluting coal plant
in our county, Mr. West did the
honorable thing. He stood up and
told the truth. For the rest of his
life, he will always be remembered.

County, for being a forester with a
Perhaps his moral stand will
encourage others in public office to
do the right thing --to study what
they are committing our county to
for the next half century. Before
making his talk before that zoning
board, Mr. West said, "Yesterday, I

Also, the commissioners must
have old brain cells and slow
.retrieval processes in reclaiming
their memory of Jack Brown's
behavior as county administrator.
Jack Brown was argumentative
and combative during' his last term
as county 'administrator. Jack
Brown was dictatorial in his
position as county commissioner.
Things I have noticed:
1) each time Brown resigns he
uses his family as an excuse.
2) Brown's picture is splattered
over the front page of the
ne% paper. Where xnre, the
pictures of the four people who
spent their money to come to Perry
for an interview which turned out
to be a joke?
3) Jack Brown can't seem to
-hold a job very long.
Apparently Jack Brown, doesn't
know on which side of the table he
wants to sit. If he sits on the county
administrator's side he can again
become combative and
argumentative without the public
backlash. .If he sits as county
commissioner he can -be-

WHAT WOULD JESUS DO? No. 25
WHAT WOULD JESUS DO ABOUT
By Bill Blue
Some churches excommunicate sinning members. Some withdraw from or
disfellowship sinners. Others do not discipline members at all believing that it is
wrong to judge one another. What would Jesus do?
Where one brother sins against second brother, Jesus has left us explicit.
instructions (Matt. 18:15-17).
5""Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between
you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. 16But if he
will not hear, take with you one or two more, that 'by the mouth of two or three
witnesses every word'may be established.' '"And if he refuses tq hear them, tell
it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like
a heathen and a tax collector."
Although Jesus limited His scenario to occasions where one brother sins against
another, following Jesus' pattern here should be the rule rather than the exception.
As we consider the Scriptural authority\ for withdrawal, remember the goals of
discipline: saving the lost brother (James 5:19-20), and protecting the church
from sin (1 Cor. 5:5-8).
Step One: Go to the brother. Jesus commands us to begin the process by going
directly to the sinning brother. The wisdom in' doing so privately before involving
third parties is obvious for at least t~woreasons: First, theC'erringi' Christian may
repent immediately. Repentance may eliminate the need for others to know about
the transgression and lessen the possibility of gossip and division. Secondly, you
need to verify the facts. Going directly to the person accused of sin will permit
you to hear their side of the story. How embarrassing would it be to confront the
"transgressor" in the presence of others and then learn that no sin was committed?
Step Two: Go back with onte or two more. If your brother will not repent, find
one or two witnesses (Matt. 18:16). Give your brother a second chance to repent.
His spiritual welfare is the overriding concern (James 5:19-20i. Others may be
able to persuade him to repent and their presence will help assure that the facts
are tenfied i Mlat. 18:16). However, the number of people with knowledge of
the allegations is still small. The brother may repent without the need of sharing
the alleg.auions \ ith the entire church.
Step Three Take it to, the church. If the brother will not listen to you or the
'others, you are then to take the issue to the church. If your church has elders,
ake the matter to them because they have oversight. The influence of the whole
congregation is brought to bear in hopes of getting the brother to repent, but if he
'retues, "let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector" i Matt. 18:17).
Let him be to 'ou like a heathen and a tax collector. What did Jesus mean by
sa ing that w e should consider the sinning brother a Gentile and, a ta. collector?
Remember that Jesus was speaking to Jews, and in the First Century. the Jews
would not eat with Gentiles or tax collectors. By way of analogy. Jesus is
instructing us to not eat with, keep company with, or otherwise socialize with
sinrnng brethren (1 Cor. 5:11).
ind\ idual Responsibility. In verse 17, Christ puts the responsibility on the
individual to discipline the sinning brother when He says that "you" are to treat
the. brother as a Gentile and a Lax collector (Matt. 18:17). Paul also emphasized
the indi idual's responsibility for discipline when he wrote. %e command you,
brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from
every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which they
received of us" (2 Thess' 3:6, ASV)."
What is withdrawn? Paul says that we are to avoid sinning brethren (Rom.
16:17), by withdrawing ourselves (2 Thess. 3:6) and our company from them (2
Thess. 3:14). We should not keep company or even eat n ith sinning brethren II
We only withdraw from sinning brethren (Matt. 18:15; 1 Cor. 5:11;.2 Thess.
3:6). We do not withdraw from the world (1 Cor. 5:9-13), but only our impenitent
Commit sexual immorality (1 ,Cor. 5:11);
Covet (1 Cor. 5:11); ,
Are an idolater, reviler, drunkard, extortioner, or divisive (Rom. 16:17);
Sin against brethren (Matt. 18:15-17);
Walk disorderly,contrary to apostolic tradition (2 Thess. 3:6);
Wander from the truth (James 5:19); or
Commit any trespass or offense contrary to doctrine (Gal. 6:1; Rom. 16:17).
We understand that no sin is any more or less dangerous than any other sin,
though we may understand this better intellectually than we do in application.
For example, many today may consider trivial what Paul said was disorderly
.conduct worthy of withdrawal (2 Thess. 3:6-14).
The purpose of discipline is your brother's salvation and the protection of tde
church (James 5:19-20; 1 Cor. 5:5-8). Discipline is difficult. Some brethren are
unwilling to withdraw from a brother because they are concerned about the sinning
brother's feelings. This, however, ignores the fact that withdrawal is designed to
shame the brother into repentance, and prevent sin from spreading throughout
the church (2 Thess. 3:14; 1 Cor. 5:5-8).
Jesus' pattern for dealing with sinning brethren protects not only our brother
and the church, but ourselves also. Paul reminds us that when we seek to restore
others that we should consider ourselves, lest we also be tempted (Gal. 6:1). The
failure to try to restore a brother is in itself sin and a lack of concern for our
brethren could become a lack of concern for sin in our own lives.

Laptop program reviewed after 1st nine weeks
As one of the 11 laptop projects
in the State of Florida, LIFT 21
(Laptop Initiative for Learning 21st
Century Skills) is off and running.
By the time school started, the
student and teacher laptops were in
place, the classrooms were
retrofitted, and the wireless
environment was operational.
"Teachers were eager to utilize
the new educational tools in the
classroom, reshaping the nature of
instructional learning," Chris
Olson said. "The laptop initiative
provides Taylor County School
District with an unprecedented
opportunity to reform teaching
practices by moving away from
teacher centered, text-book driven
methods, to student-centered
project-based learning. The laptops
are enabling our students to
become active learners,
researching, exploring areas of
interest, collaborating with others
across the room and across the
According to teachers, the major
changes in the classroom include
students gaining a marketable skill
by learning how to use the
Microsoft office suite. The teacher
is more of a facilitator, resulting in
a student that is highly motivated
and much more creative when
using laptops for assignments.
Students are accepting more
responsibility for their laptops,, and
their assigned work, teachers
One ninth-grade student said,
"At first I didn't really like the
laptop because my typing was too
slow, but my teacher told me to
keep going and it would get
better. It did, and I now love my
Student comments reflect a very
positive attitude toward the laptop
initiative with the highlights being
increased, productivity, enjoying
research on the internet, being able
to create PowerPoint presentations
that include virtual tours of
researched subjects and being able
to share that with the class, school
The overarching comments
indicate that students do their work
faster and better than ever before.

Taylor County Schools made
considerable improvement in

"This is exactly what we want
and need to do," Howard said.

goal for our school district is to get
