Land use changes approved


Following almost seven hours of
public hearings, the Taylor County
Commission approved two
comprehensive plan amendments
Monday night for the Taylor
Energy Center (TEC), agreeing to
transmit the applications to the
state's Department of Community
Affairs (DCA) for review.
This initial approval will allow

The Suwannee River Water
Management District (SRWMD)
governing board has issued a Phase I
Water Shortage Advisory that will
remain in effect district-wide until
further notice.
The district covers all of Columbia,
Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette,
Madison, Suwannee, Taylor and Union
counties, as well as portions of
Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Jefferson,
Levy and Putnam counties.
No mandatory restrictions are in
place, but water managers are calling
on all residential, commercial,
agricultural and industrial users to
voluntarily reduce water consumption
through conservation measures.
Lack of rainfall has created a
moderate drought throughout the
Suwannee River basin in Florida and
Georgia, according to the 'National
Weather Service (NWS). Most areas
of-the district are experiencing low or
extremely low groundwater and
surfacewater levels due to below-
average monthly rainfall. With a
cumulative 12.17-inch rainfall deficit,
the year ending Oct. 31 is the eighth
driest year since 1931.

the four municipal utilities behind
TEC to continue the state and
federal permitting process to site a
proposed 800-megawatt, coal-fired
power plant on a 3,000-acre site
just east of the Buckeye plant
adjacent to Hwy. 27.
If DCA approves the
amendments, they will be returned
to the commission, which will hold


a second public hearing on each
application for final approval.
Of the two amendments, the first
will create two new land use
categories for power generating
facilities: Electric Power
Generating Facility-1, which
accommodates simple cycle and
natural gas combined-cycle power
plants with less than 50 employees,

Il OM U ".m..


Lawanda Pemberton, assistant to county administrator Buddy Humphries, signs in speakers
for Monday night's public hearing. Some 70 people spoke either for or against the proposed
Taylor Energy Center 800-megawatt power plant. The meeting filled the third floor
courtroom at the county courthouse with many of those in attendance spilling into the
-hallways. .

Greenville man arrested


and Electric Power Generating
Facility-2 (EPGF-2), which
accommodates solid fuel power
plants of more than 50 employees.
The second amendment will
change the land use classification
for the 3,000-acre parcel from
agriculture to EPGF-2. The land is
currently owned by Buckeye and
Foley Timber and Land, but TEC
finalized contracts last week to
purchase the property if all permits
and approvals are obtained for the
power plant.
The permitting phase is expected
to take two years with construction
beginning in 2008. The plant is
slated to begin operation in 2012.
The commission began the
public hearing for the first
application during its regular
meeting on Nov. 6. Following
almost two hours of testimony, a
motion to approve the application
failed in a tied 2-2 vote.
Commissioner Clay Bethea had to
abstain from voting due to his
employment with Buckeye.
Commissioner Jack Brown
expressed concern that the
amendment's language did not
adequately allow future
commissions a voice if the power
group decided to build additional
plants at the site.
Gunter asked whether the
language could be changed and
County Attorney Conrad Bishop
reccomended the matter be tabled
until a later date. Commissioners
agreed to continue the meeting to
allow TEC time to consider
amended language.
During Monday's hearings, even
the county courtroom could not
contain the crowd present to voice
support or opposition to the coal


Chase speeds reach 120 mph


A Greenville man, Russell
Matthew Johnson, 39, was arrested
last week after leading law
enforcement officers on a high-
speed chase, reaching speeds in
excess of 120 mph before stopping
and leading officers on a foot race
prior to being caught.


Perry Police Department Ptl.
Gina Deeson said she was
answering a call from dispatch
concerning a possible burglary of a
vehicle, described as a Ford
Mustang, at Tidewater Apartments.
"Approximately four minutes
after the call was given out," said


Deeson, "I saw a white 2006 Ford
Mustang pulling out of the
apartments. As the vehicle
approached the intersection of US'
Hwy. 98 West, I turned on my
emergency blue lights in an
attempt to conduct an investigative
traffic stop on the vehicle, due to


Complaint filed on election ads?


The Florida Elections
Commission may be investigating
a complaint filed regarding a series
of newspaper advertisements in
support of 'an amendment that
would have re-authorized the
county commission to grant tax
exemptions to new or expanding
businesses.
Voters rejected the local
referendum at the polls during the
General Election Nov. 7; the vote


was 2,864 to 2,481.
Economic Developer Rick Breer
coordinated the ad campaign,
which included spots by the Taylor
County Development Authority,
Taylor County Board of
Commissioners, Perry City
Council and Perry/Taylor County
Chamber of Commerce.

state elections commission

Eyes twinkling like a school
girl's, Frances Gilmore leans
forward in her rocking chair and
recounts a story from her
childhood that comes to life in rich
sepia tone detail.
"There was a (train) flag stop
about three miles from my daddy's
plantation and once a year, he
would send men out to collect a
wagon load of dentist equipment.
A few days later, the dentist would
arrive and set up his chair out in
the sunshine and then tend to
everyone's teeth. He would stay in
the house with us for a few days.
We never could figure out how
much he would have charged
daddy for that," Gilmore said.
The tale is one of many Gilmore,


regarding the series of ads and
seeking confirmation of the
supporting parties.
Flagg also sought information
regarding the cost associated with
each ad and if the chamber had
been charged the same amount as
the other sponsors involved with
the campaign.
When asked why he needed the

possible grand theft.
"The vehicle stopped fleetingly
at the intersection and then began
accelerating quickly, heading west
on Hwy. 98," added Deeson.
The officer said she was able to
keep the vehicle within sight in the
distance, even though she was
running at speeds more than 120
mph.
"With the vehicle continuing
west, Taylor County Sheriffs
Office Dep. Scott McKenzie
joined in the pursuit. At the
intersection of Hwy. 98 and Powell
Hammock Grade, the car made a
sudden turn north onto the grade.
At this point, McKenzie became
the lead vehicle," said Deeson.
The Mustang continued about
three miles, finally slowing down
to around 55 mph and continuing
to slow until it came to a stop.

plant.
The meeting was moved to the
courtroom following complaints
that there was not enough space in
the commission meeting room at
the county's annex building.
Plant supporters and opponents
appeared to gravitate to opposite
sides of the room, with the center
aisle as the dividing line.

parties

State Rep, Will Kendrick of
Carrabelle, _ho represents Taylor
and nine other North Florida
counties, announced Monday that
he has switched to the Republican
Party after serving six years as a
Democrat.
"I just saw how the political
climate was going," said Kendrick.
"If I was a professional, full-time
politician, or planned to be around
here a while, this probably
wouldn't be a real good,move for
me."
Kendrick, who was 'first elected
in 2000, won re-election this year
without opposition. This will be
his final two-year term due to term
limits.
Kendrick said he hopes to serve
on the agriculture and natural-
resources committees, which are
key to his rural district, and that as
a Republican in his fourth term, he
could become chairman of a
committee. ,
The House, under Speaker-
designate Marco Rubio, was
scheduled to hold its
organizational meetings Tuesday.
He said he "has had some
philosophical differences" with the
Democrats over his six years in the
Legislature.

affectionately known as "Mama
Frances," is happy to share. .
"I was the youngest and my
brother said I got away with a lot. I
was born to a large family and they
always came first.
"I was the youngest of seven and
by the time I was old enough to
know my brothers and sisters,
there was just one sister and
brother left at home--the rest had
gone away and some of them were
in college."
As was the custom of the day,
her brothers pursued professional
careers while her sisters became
teachers.
"They taught until they
married," Gilmore said. Her
brothers became doctors, dentists
and educators.
Her family blessed by longevity,


Gilmore has one brother who lived
until just a few weeks shy of his
102nd birthday; a sister, Hazel,
lived until age 98.
"My brother tended to his own
business right up until his death.
He mind was so sharp. And I am so
thankful that I still have my right
mind."
On Sunday, Nov. 19, Gilmore
herself celebrated her 100th
birthday.
It was a day that had been in her
thoughts since she turned 99.
"So many of my friends would
tease me about it."
Those same friends turned out in
force to help Gilmore toast the
milestone during an afternoon
reception at First Baptist Church.

Frances Gilmore said her greatest joy comes from helping
people, a sentiment that she has embraced in a century of
living.

Opponents, supporters state views


during four-hour long public hearing


LAND USE
Continued from page 1
Following the same procedure as
the Nov. 6 meeting, Commission
Chairman Daryll Gunter
announced that a sign-up sheet
would be available for those
wishing to speak on the second
amendment (the land use change).
He did draw complaints from
opponents when he stated the
commission would not be
accepting further testimony on the
first application or on the proposed
changes.
The new language, which was
added to the description of both
new land use categories, states, "At
the approximately 2,997 acre
Taylor Energy Center site
proposed for designation on the
future land use map as Electrical
Power Generating Facility-2, no
more than one power plant unit
shall be allowed unless specifically
authorized by ordinance of the
Board of County Commissioners."
In a letter dated Nov. 17, North
Central Regional Planning Council
(NCRPC) Directot of Regional
and Local Government Programs
Scott Koones recommended the
commission not adopt the new
language, calling it
"inappropriate."
He also stated, "If the board of
county commissioners wishes to
retain the ability to review
additional power plant units on this
property, it is our recommendation
to only change the land use on the
portion of 'the site needed for the
first power plant unit. As an
alternative, we recommend that the
language in [the first amendment]
to limit the size of power plant
units in the Electric Power Plant .
Facility-2 category to 850
megawatts and -between 51 and
180 employees."
Commissioners did not discuss
the letter during the hearing and no
comments were made before
Brown made a motion to accept the
new language. Commissioner
Malcolm Page seconded.
Bethea once again abstained
from voting and the measure
passed 4-0.' .
' Cornmitijs'ioners then turned their
attention to the second application,
opening the hearing for public
comments.
In all, 70 people spoke with'
approximately 37 individuals
speaking against the power plant,
almost one-third of which were
from outside the county ranging
from Madison County, Collier
County and Tallahassee.
Again repeating the procedure of
the previous meeting, each speaker
was given three minutes and a light
system was used to alert people to
when: their time was up.
Many spoke on the health effects
of coal plants as well as -the link
between carbon dioxide emissions
and:global warming. Others stated
tho issue should have been put to a
referendum vote, as was done in
Tallahassee.
"I'm totally against what you're
trying to do here because I feel
what you. are doing is wrong,"
local resident Joy Towles Ezell
said.
"It's not too late to change your
mind. I think you are leaving
yourselves open in the future to
legal problems and not just with
this comprehensive plan change."
"We shouldn't be here pleading
for our lives and our children's
lives," Taylor County resident Gale
Dickert said. "It's wrong. It's
unethical."
"Anything I say about the coal
plant won't apply to me because I
probably won't be here when it
goes online," said Taylor County
Planning Board member Erdman
West. He urged the conrmissioners
to demand the plant use Integrated
Gasification Combined Cycle
(IGCC) technology.
West voted against both
amendments when they came
before the planning.board on Nov. ,
2. :
Janice Blair asked Page and
Brown to follow Bethea's example
and abstain from voting on the
amendment: Page due to his

and Seminole Electric boards and
Brown due to his recent
appointment as county
administrator.
Neither commissioner addressed
the issue during the meeting and
both voted in the subsequent vote.
"We all know coal plants pollute,
they're bad and nobody wants one
in their community," Taylor
County resident Rick Causey said.
"The people of Taylor County
deserve something better than
what you're offering."
"Look at the children in this
room and decide if you want to
poison them," Vince George of
Tallahassee said.
Tracy Fullington, a lawyer with
the organization WildLaw, pointed
out that like Bethea, two of the
planning board members are also
employed by Buckeye--Brian
Bethea (first cousin of
Commissioner Bethea) and Kevin
Guenthner--but voted anyway.
Commissioner Bethea stated that
the two had consulted with a
lawyer and were advised they
could vote on the matter.
Some 15 people spoke in favor
of the plant, as well as 16 TEC
representatives.
"This county was at one time the
smoke stack capital of the world,"
longtime Perry physician John
Parker said. "We had 15 mills,
some of them world-class. We
made a living here.
"I think we're getting to the point
we're losing our home rule. We
have people coming here to tell us
how to do things."
"It's a fact of life that we cannot


live without creating some
pollution," Ray Evans said, adding
his support for the land use change.
"We should support any power
plant that does not use oil or gas,
including nuclear," Don Everett Sr.
said. "Taylor County needs
industry, not just a power plant, but
we should be grateful for this
opportunity."
"I would like to take this
opportunity to thank the county
commission for the time and effort
you put into your jobs," Jake
Bassett said. "Our forefathers had
the insight to 'invite another
industry, Procter and Gamble.
Taylor Energy Center will bring
benefits to our county now and for
years to come.
"I voted for my county
commissioner and I pay him
$25,000 a year to vote for me," he
added.
"I have seen the effects of 14
percent unemployment," Bud
Helm said. "I don't think you are
here to solve the world's problems.
You are here to vote on a land use
change and I support that."
"I would not have any part of a
plant that would bring harm to the
citizens of Taylor County," TEC
Project Manager Mike Lawson
said.
After almost every speaker,
applause would erupt from one
side of the courtroom or the other,
depending on whether the speaker
was for or against the coal plant.
Following the testimony, which
took more than three hours, Gunter
asked for the pleasure of the board.
Brown made a motion to


transmit the application to DCA
with Page seconding.
Bethea again abstained from
voting, but spoke of his support of
the application and stated he would
have voted for it if he could.
The measure passed 4-0 with no
further comments from the
commissioners.
If DCA approves the
applications, they could be
returned to the commission as
early as January.
TEC officials responded
favorably to the commission's
vote.
"We are thankful for the
community's support and the
commission's unanimous
approval," TEC spokesman Mark
McCain said Tuesday.
"We are optimistic about moving
forward with the final project in
ways that benefit and protect
Taylor County."

Lester to 'explore' Europe next summer


Daniel Lester, a student at Taylor
County High School, has been
accepted into the People to People
Student Ambassador Program, an
educational program founded by
President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Lester will explore Europe for 20
days in the summer of 2007 as a
member of the Tallahassee
delegation, with students from
North Florida and South Georgia.
By participating in the European
Heritage itinerary, Lester can earn
academic credit while getting to


know the people, culture and
history of the places visited. While
staying with a host family, he will
take part in a variety of activities
such as a community service
environmental project in Freiburg,
Germany, a ride on the London
Eye, the world's largest Ferris
wheel, visits to the Normandy
American Cemetery, the Louvre
Museum in Paris, the International
Peace Palace and the home of
Anne Frank in the Netherlands.
Acceptance into the Student


Ambassador Program is an honor.
After being invited to enroll,
Lester submitted letters of
recommendation and ,successfully
completed an interview process.
Before departing, he will attend
several orientation meetings with
program leaders and fellow
delegates. He will travel under the
leadership of Margaret Bush, a
retired public school teacher from
Tallahassee. The delegation is also
led by Maria Copeland who
teaches at Deerlake Middle School


in Tallahassee.
President Eisenhower founded
People to People during his
presidency in 1956 with citizen
leaders including entertainer Bob
Hope, Olympic champion Jesse
Owens and amusenient
entrepreneur Walt Disney. Having
served as a military commander,
Eisenhower promoted the belief
that ordinary citizens of different

WHAT WOULD JESUS DO? No.26

CLEANSE THE TEMPLE
OF MODERNISM
By Bill Blue
Is Christ pleased with all the works and forms of worship performed in
His name today?

One Lino Lakes, Minnesota, congregation has movie-theater style seats
with cup holders (the cup holders are designed to hold the designer coffee
that will be sold at the building).

Another congregation in nearby Eden Prairie, Minnesota, has swelled to
such large numbers that'it has two buildings miles apart. The smaller
building features videotaped sermons and a ten-piece band.

In Essex County, New Jersey, a congregation held a football service.
Women played cheerleaders and the choir and preacher dressed in jerseys.

In Peoria, Illinois, a congregation decorates its building with golf balls
and footballs, and the men huddle up at the beginning and the end of
each service.

A St. Paul congregation used to be the attendance champion because it
operated a non-alcoholic nightclub, and boasted that its slogan was
"Definitely not church as usual."

Many Christians would oppose nightclubs and videotaped sermons, but
what about daycare centers, ten-piece bands, softball teams, Wednesday
night dinners, or $3 coffees?

What would Jesus say about efforts to modernize or liberalize worship?

Jesus is not pleased by every form of worship performed in His name
(Matt. 7:21-23).

With respect to common meals, Jesus demonstrated in His own ministry
that He was more concerned with fulfilling spiritual needs than one's
appetite. On the day after Jesus fed the 5,000, many of the Jews who
had been fed the day before traveled across the Sea of Galilee to be fed
again (John 6:24, 26). Jesus did not feed them again, but said, "Do not
labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to
everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you" (John 6:27). Over
and over again Jesus stressed that it was more important to believe that
He was the Christ, than to be preoccupied with their own bellies (John
6:29, 32-33, 35-40). Paul similarly says to churches who assemble to
eat common meals, "What! Do you not have houses to eat and drink in?
But if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, lest you come together for
judgment" (1 Cor. 11:22, 34). Common meals can cause divisions within
the church, and cause brethren to forget why they are assembling in the
first place (1 Cor. 11:17-34). Jesus would prefer us to come together to.
be nourished with words of faith and good doctrine (1 Tim. 4:6) instead
of $3 coffees or spaghetti dinners.

With respect to nightclubs, gyms, daycare centers and the like, either all
are authorized or none are authorized. What would Jesus say about these
social outreach institutions? On two occasions, Jesus cleansed the temple
of the moneychangers. On the second occasion Jesus said that the
offenders had made the Lord's house "a den of thieves" (Matt. 21:13).
On the first occasion, however, Jesus did not accuse anyone of stealing,
but said, "Take these things away! Do not make My Father's house a
house of merchandise!" (John 2:16). The moneychangers were guilty of
doing something God did not authorize. Likewise, where is the authority
for a church to spend the Lord's treasury on daycare centers, gymnasiums,
schools, or nightclubs? Where does the Bible say that these activities
are the work of the assembly? Biblical silence is not permission (Heb.
7:14).

Which would Jesus find more offensive selling animals necessary for
sacrifice, or selling $3 coffees at worship? The moneychangers could at
least argue that they were selling items necessary for worship. After all,
everyone under the Law of Moses had to offer an animal for sacrifice as
part of his or her worship to God, but God requires no one today to have
daycare or coffee in order to worship Him.

The problem with modern worship is that the breadth of permitted
activities grows over time because they are not confined by God's word,
which never changes (Mal. 3:6). The organ or piano introduced into
some denominations in the 19th century has given way to ten-piece bands
and choirs that sing while the congregation sits quiet (but see Eph. 5:19;
Col. 3:16). In the 20th Century, women and homosexuals began filling
pulpits once reserved for righteous men (1 Cor. 14:34-35; 1 Tim. 2:11-
12; 1 Cor. 6:9-10). How far has modernism gone? In one of the
congregations referenced above, worship includes comedy sketches and
rock music, but no Bibles and no hymnals. How well can one be filled
with "words of faith and good doctrine" without Bibles (1 Tim. 4:6)? It
is time to cleanse our houses of worship of the moneychangers of daycare
and gyms before our Bibles disappear and we starve from a lack of God's
word.
Next week we will print our final article in this series.

Frances Gilmore shares a laugh with friends Glenn and Ola Baker at her 100th birthday
party Saturday, Nov. 18, held in the First Baptist Church fellowship hall. The event was
hosted by her family.


Family, friends gather for


100th birthday celebration


MAMA FRANCES
Continued from page 1
Joining them were Gilmore's
two grandsons and their families:
Jeff and Diane Distle (along with
son William "Will") and Doug and
Shelly Distle.
A host of nieces and nephews
joined in fun, along with dozens of


friends from her church and the
community.
Gilmore moved to Perry from
her native Troy, Ala., when she
was "23 and one-half years old.
My husband worked with the
Atlantic Coastline railroad. We
lived in Foley for 'five years and
then moved into Perry. I've been
here ever since and can't imagine


'm still Will..call me'


KENDRICK
Continued from page 1
"I find myself aligning more
with the Republican Party on many
issues. The party is not as
important as the issues," he said.
Kendrick, 46, served on the
Franklin County School Board for
14 years prior to his election to the
House. His father served on the,
Franklin County Commission in
the early 1980s and his sister
currently serves as chairman of


that commission.
During his six years in the
legislature he has received
numerous awards including the
Florida Association of Counties'
freshman legislator of the year, the
Florida School Boards Association
legislator of the year and an "A"
rating by the National Rifle
Association.
"Regardless of what happens, at
the end of the day I'm still Will and
you can still contact me," he said.


living anywhere else."
The couple had one daughter,
Gloria.
"We really enjoyed her from the
time she came into the world."
Gilmore worked in public
relations for Bassett's Dairy "and
enjoyed every minute of it because
I got to meet so many people. I just
love people."
That love, and the closeness to
family and friends, continues to
shine brightly in Gilmore's life.
"I get great joy out of helping
people." And that joy is returned
100-fold.


Susie Smith, best
known to family and
friends as "Aunt Sue,"
was all smiles during
a party held in her
honor on Saturday, Nov.
18, at Loughridge Park
Community Center. The
program included a
reading of her favorite
scriptures and singing
of her favorite hymn
("What a Friend").


Joining Susie Smith at the head table for her 100th
birthday celebration were her sister, Ernestine Parlor,
right, and B.D. Williams. "The family wants you to
know that we appreciate the role model you have
been to us through the years, whether it was as an
educator, mentor, surrogate parent or friend. Because
of you, we have learned to weather life's storms
graciously and to hold on to our faith," family
members said, calling Smith "a force of good."

"Taylor was well represented by
these fine young athletes and Jerry
Wayne Blaske caught the attention
of the film crew due to his
extraordinary gymnastics ability,"
she said. "He was filmed and
interviewed so look for him on TV
in the near future."
Shirley Blaske was the sole
female artistic contender and she
took four gold medals and one

Residents join forces to 'spruce up' Steinhatchee


By SUSAN CURTIS
Coastal Cleanup chairman
Twenty volunteers met on a
crisp, cool, sunny, fall day to'
spruce up the Steinhatchee River


and clean the roads.
More than 100 bags of debris
were gathered, including two
batteries that were found in the
river by Mary and Julius Cooey.


Gail and Bob Bartlett, along with Judy Ganteinbein (not
pictured), tackled the area from the Steinhatchee Garden
Club to Cooey's Island during the recent community cleanup.


Batteries are highly toxic and
should never be disposed of
improperly. This was the worst
offense we found.
Patricia Hurd and Anna McDow,
along with three Steinhatchee
students, Rodrigo and Jennifer
Martinez and Kaley Johns, cleaned
the bridge, the bridge road and the
area on the Jena side with all the
signs.
This is one of the worst areas
and they did a great job.
Rhoda Moehring and Diana
Badar (a winter boating visitor)
cleaned the river and got more than
12 bags plus loose debris. Rhoda
had on her Steinhatchee Reeboks,
of course! Rhoda also baked
delicious brownies for the
volunteers.
The AARP area of Hwy. 51 from
Tri-County Electric to the Palm
Grove property was attacked by
Sue and Bud Polhemus. It required
a lot of backbreaking work for just
two people.
Bob and Gail Bartlett with Judy
Ganteinbein cleaned the entire
Steinhatchee Garden Club area
from the cemetery to Cooey's
Island. A gigantic piece of
discarded tin was found in addition
to some huge signs. They worked
very hard to get the two miles
(both sides) cleaned.
Larry and Sandy Rowland were
just walking past the Community
Center and got roped into picking
up trash from the Community
Center to Roy's Restaurant.
Thanks and thanks again for the
unexpected "yes."
The outrageously filthy area
between Roy's and the dump was
picked up by Van and Kathy Jester.
This area is another black pit of


littering--some from flying debris
off pickups heading to the dump
and some from litterbugs leaving
town. Please stop littering!
Al Williams used his pickup to
gather the bags and bring them
back to the community center. Al
was our oldest volunteer at over
80, but who's counting? Thank


you, Al. Buster, Josh and Dick
were looking down from above
and nodding approval.
Ann Boy opened the community
center and oversaw the lunch. Ann
made arrangements for pizza and
water that was generously donated
for the community effort by
Hungry Howies.


Everyone who came out
.received a t-shirt donated by the
Community Center Projects
Board.
The volunteers had a great time
doing something worthwhile .on a
gorgeous morning.
Hope to see you during our
cleanup next year.

Julius and Mary Cooey took the river for their part in helping "clean up" Steinhatchee. More
than 100 bags of debris were collected during the drive, including two batteries found in the

Editorial


B-2 Taco Times November 22, 2006


During Veterans Day


Writer upset no events were


scheduled at memorial park


Dear Editor:
"Build it and they will come."
Remember that famous line from
the movie, "Field of Dreams"? I
guess that only pertains to a
baseball diamond in the middle of
an Iowa cornfield. It obviously
does not include parks built in our
community, especially ones that
cost more than a half-million
dollars to build.
A few weeks ago, we honored
our veterans on Veterans Day here
in Taylor County. There was a
service at the high school, services
at the courthouse square at the
eternal flame and the luncheon at
Forest Capital Hall. These are
normal venues for these activities
put on by the same folks who do
them every year. What took place
at Veterans Memorial Park? Well,
to the best of my knowledge,
absolutely nothing happened there.
Where were the people who were
the driving force to make the new
park a reality?
Now I do understand that the


park is not 100 percent complete,
but does that mean that nothing
can happen there on the most
important day of the year for
veterans? After all, this project has
gone on for three years and the
construction phase for quite some
time. The monuments are in place,
the bell and the flag poles are
there. Couldn't anybody plan
something at the site where "folks
from all over the country will
come" (as we were told in public
meetings)?
You may ask what right I have to
complain about this issue? My late
father was a combat veteran of
World War II at the Battle of the
Bulge. He was seriously wounded
and lived the rest of his life with a
disability. My late brother was a
Vietnam combat veteran. He went
over as an alcoholic and came back
a "druggie." I have two Letters of
Recognition from President
Ronald Reagan displayed proudly
on the wall of my home, honoring
these two men.


I know there was a lot of sweat
put forth by the volunteers who
built the park, especially those
veterans of the earlier wars. This
letter is not to disparage them in
any way. I hope those older
gentlemen got to participate in the
services held on their special day. I
simply cannot believe that nothing
was planned at the facility for that
day. What happened to all those
folks that showed up at the county
commission and city council
meetings virtually demanding
money or assistance?
Personally, I believe the veterans
of Taylor County have been
dishonored and the citizens robbed
of more than a half-million dollars
to build a passive park that isn't
even used on one of the two days
that honors those who fought for
their country. I have spoken to .a
handful of more recent veterans
(Vietnam and Desert Storm) and
they too, are wondering what
happened.
John Singer


Letters to the Editor


Will Taylor's coastal areas incorporate?


Dear Editor:
I'd like to take a minute to offer
some food for thought concerning
the Magnolia Bay development
that has been the talk of the town
lately.
It looks like the project has a lot
of support from local government
and maybe from many of the
citizens of Taylor County also. I
keep hearing about the economic
.benefits of such a development
coming to our county. One of the
questions I have is what would
keep the beach communities,
including- Magnolia Bay, from
incorporating in the future'-If that
happens, doesn't that mean that all
of those tax dollars and benefits
would stay in that area and would


no longer be shared with the rest of
the county? That is just one
concern I have.
Now let me tell you the
economic impact that I believe will
come from this development. The
average working family in Taylor
County will not be able to afford a
home in the Magnolia Bay
community. So who will live
there? It will be wealthy folks that
either retire to here or just buy
these homes as an investment.
Either way, it will be people that
have little or no ties to the county
Swe were born and raised in and
will probably not have any concern
or respect for the way of life we
have always been accustomed to.
Things like hunting and fishing


will be changed by people who
have the money to get things done
the way they want it. And most
importantly, at least to me, is the
thought of people with no ties and
roots in this county and the money
and influence to make things
happen that decide a paper mill is
bad for their investment. Then you
have people who don't depend on
jobs in this community trying to
shut down our plant so maybe it
will increase their property values
by a few dollars.
Will something like that
happen'"1 don't kno%\ the ans- er to
that. It is a real possibility? You
better believe, it. Like I said to start
with, just food for thought.
Steve, Johnson


Coal mining practices outlined, attacked


Dear Editor:
In 2002 the Secretary of the
Army changed the definition of
"fill material" to include mining
waste. Since mining waste is now
considered "fill," the coal -
companies are dumping the mine
waste, straight into the streams.
Mining today in West Virginia,
Kentucky, Alabama, Virginia and
Tennessee is a new, radical form of
mining where the coal industry
dismantles the mountains for a thin
strip of coal.
Keep in mind, the coal industry
is telling us they are using the
latest technologies, but maybe they
are not referring to the locations
where they are mining the coal."
Coal mines operate 24 hours a day,
blasting dynamite so strong
foundations and walls of homes
are cracked, windows break. Well
water is so acidic that it dissolves
pipes and plumbing fixtures.
After the coal is mined, and


ready to be placed on the train, the
coal is washed, leaving billions of
gallons of a dilute asphalt-like
gruel laced with toxins and heavy
metals. The excess water from this
process is coal slurry or sludge, a
mix of water, coal dust, clay and
toxic chemicals such as arsenic,
mercury, lead, copper and
chromium. Groundwater is
contaminated by coal slurry
dumped into nearby streams and
valleys, all taking place at the
headwaters of the drinking water
supplies for many U.S. cities.
Our policy makers are clinging
to the old, dirty fossil fuel
technologies because coal
companies are major buyers of
politicians. You know the old
saying, "follow the money," visit
www.ilovemountains.org and
www.opensecrets.org to see who
gives money to Congress.
On a recent trip to Virginia we
read in the paper that people in


Virginia are as concerned as the
people in Taylor County, about
"clean coal." They ask you to
spend time in the coal fields
talking to the residents living near
the point of extraction. Most were
scammed years ago out of their
mineral rights. Cancer rates are off
the charts. Black lung and silicosis
disease is common among those
exposed to the dust from surface
operations but they have never set
foot in a mine. The John Amos
plant owned by American Electric
Power, by one estimate, releases
more mercury to the .environment
than any other facility in the U.S.,
as well as hundreds of tons of
sulphur oxides, hydrogen sulfide
and C02. The true cost of cheap
coal (being mostly carbon), for
",, Please see page 8

I've always had a fondness for
hats and have never been able to
resist a display without stopping to
try on at least one or two. A wide
brim in combination with my
rather short stature making me
appear more mushroom than
model, gives way to all-out
laughter at a vintage combination
of feathers, net and flowers. It
appears that many women of a
"certain age" share my fondness
for silly hats. In fact, a national
club has been formed specifically
for the purpose of giving women a
chance to wear red hats and purple
clothing, and get together for
absolutely no reason other than to
have a great time.


Most of the hats you see worn in
the beaches area are fishing caps,
baseball caps or sun hats. But once
a month you might catch a glimpse
of several ladies wearing red hats.
You may also notice that they
appear to be dressed in purple
accented with feather boas, strands
of beads and sparkling pins. The
Sandy Toes Red Hatters are a
group of ladies, most of whom
reside in the beaches area, with a
few Perry residents thrown in for
good measure. This particular
chapter was formed by Cedar
Island resident Marcia Parker who
now presides as "Queen Mother."
The beach area ladies meet once

electrical power plant. In making its determination, the Commission must take into account the need for
electric system reliability and integrity, the need for adequate electricity at a reasonable cost, the need for fuel
diversity and supply reliability, and whether the proposed plant expansion is the most cost-effective alternative
available. In addition, the Commission must expressly consider the conservation measures taken by or
reasonably available to the applicants which might mitigate the need for the proposed plant and may consider
other matters within its jurisdiction which it deems relevant. The Commission's determination of need for the
proposed plant shall create a presumption of public need and necessity and shall serve as the Commission's
report required by subsection 403.507(2), Florida Statutes. An order entered by the Commission pursuant to
this hearing shall constitute final agency action.

Only issues relating to the need for the proposed power plant will be heard at this hearing. Separate public
hearings will be held before the Division of Administrative Hearings at a later date to consider environmental
--and other impacts of the proposed plant and associated facilities, as required by the "Florida Electrical Power

a party to this need determination proceeding should file an appropriate petition pursuant to Rule 25-22.039,
Florida Administrative Code, with the Director of the Commission's Division of the Commission Clerk and
Administrative Services, at the address listed below.' Copies of the petition should be sent by mail to all
parties. Those wishing to intervene in these proceedings, unless appearing on their own behalf, must be

intervene must be filed at least five (5) days before the final hearing, mustconform with Rule 28-106.201(2),
Florida Administrative Code, and must include allegations sufficient to demonstrate that the intervenor is
entitled to participate in the proceedings as a matter of constitutional or statutory right or pursuant to

Want to form your own Red Hat group?


PARADISE
Continued from page B-3
the March of Dimes walkathon.
The Sandy Toes ladies also toured
the caves at Florida Caverns in
Marianna, and are planning a trip
to Thomasville to visit Pebble Hill
Plantation. Not all of their
activities require physical exertion
as they held a "bring your favorite
topping" ice cream party in
August.
The National Red Hat Society
was created after a couple of
women read a poem entitled
"When I Am An Old Woman,"
which described how with age
comes the freedom to do as you


please. The only rule is that there
are no rules, a minimum age of 50,
a once-a-month outfit of red hat
and purple clothes, and the
propensity to laugh at absolutely
nothing. There has been one
amendment to the membership age
requirement to allow members
under 50, but they must wear pink
hats and lavender clothing.
Unfortunately, membership in
the Sandy Toes group has now
closed as they have reached their
limit of 30 ladies. This limit was
set to keep the number of members
to a manageable level and allow
them to gather together in just
about any location. However, you
may form your own group by


Have a Red Hat raffle ticket?

Winners will be drawn Dec. 1
If you're holding a ticket for the Red Hat fundraiser, your redemption
day may be one day earlier than expected. "We were unaware that the date
for the Lighting Ceremony had been changed from Saturday, Dec. 2, to
Friday, Dec. 1. So the tickets were printed with the incorrect date, but we
do want to have our drawing during this special downtown time (Friday,
Dec. 1). We offer our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause,"
said Cheryl Gregory for the Roseheads.
Donations of $1 per ticket (which will be accepted until the actual
drawing) offer patrons an opportunity to win: a hooded aluminum grill,
made and donated by Michael Gregory of Gregory's Quality Products; a
set of silk wraps donated by Tonya Holton of Reflections Hair Salon; and
a Christmas afghan, made and donated by Patricia Lindsey. Winners do
not have to be present to win.
"We hope everyone will come by to see us and help us raise money for
the 2007 Relay For Life," said Gregory. During the lighting ceremony,
Red Hat members will be located in front of Sisters' Mercantile.
If you need tickets, please call 584-2890.

Letters to the Editor

Writer: 'We have good options that

make burning of coal unnecessary'


MINING
Continued from page B-2
every ton burned, 3.6 tons of CQ2
eventually enters the atmosphere.
Thousands of people living
.downwind from coal-fired power
plants 'inhale small particles of
smoke laced with heavy metals
that penetrate deeply into their


lungs, die prematurely each year.
Coal sends more greenhouse gases
into the air and more mercury and
acid rain onto our earth and
produces more lung-searing ozone
and particulates than any other
industry. Global temperatures are
rising, warming oceans thereby.
creating bigger storms, melting
ice, and raising sea levels. But the


bigger cost is the rising tide of
damage and insurance claims
attributable to climate change.
With wind and solar power
growing by 25 percent-plus per
year and the technology of energy
efficiency advancing rapidly, we
have good options that make
burning coal unnecessary.
