Two more ethics complaints
filed by Taylor Soil and Water
Conservation Supervisor-elect
William Rick Causey have been
dismissed.
The Florida Commission on
Ethics, in a press release, said that
complaints against Taylor County
.Development Authority (TCDA)


Director Rick Breer and
Perry/Taylor County Chamber of
Commerce President Dawn Taylor
were dismissed due to a lack of
legal sufficiency.
The Taco Times reported last
week that two similar charges filed
by Causey against County
Commissioner Clay Bethea and

former Commissioner Daryll
Gunter had also been dismissed.
All four of Causey's ethics
complaints stem from a Sept. 28
event at the Perry Elks Lodge
sponsored by the developers
behind the Magnolia Bay Marina
and Resort project. At the event,
Causey alleges he was struck by

the project's developer but police
have yet to find any witnesses to
the alleged incident.
In one of the dismissal orders,
the ethics commission found that
the Chamber of Commerce
executive may not be subject to the
jurisdiction of the Ethics
Commission.
"It is not clear that the
respondent (Dawn Taylor) would
be considered a 'public officer or
employee' subject to the code of
ethics, inasmuch as the
Perry/Taylor County Chamber of


Commerce is not a government
agency," the order stated.
Last week, Attorney William
Blue, who represents Gunter and
Bethea, said he intended to seek
lawyers' fees from Causey.
"The Commission on Ethics is
retaining jurisdiction over this
matter to determine whether Mr.
Causey should be penalized for
bringing this frivolous action,"
Blue stated last week.
Attempts to reach the attorneys
for the Chamber and the TCDA
were unsuccessful Tuesday.

teacher and Pre-K director for 28
in Perry and 34 years total.
Nominated by Izell
Montgomery Jr., Demps was
selected as the first Pre-K director
for the county.
"As a classroom teacher," said
Montgomery, "she impacted the
lives of thousands of boys and
girls, going above and beyond the
call of duty to help them become
proficient learners.
"As the Pre-K coordinator, she
was .very instrumental in the
implementation of the Pre-K
program, providing strong and
dedicated leadership for her staff,
the district and the parents.
"She also contributed to our
district as the president of TEA.
She impacted the lives of our
instructional staff as a leader of
educators, and she forged a
renewing of the spirit of
cooperation between the school
board and instructional staff.
"As a classroom teacher,
Carolyn served on numerous
committees and volunteered her
services to ensure the success of -
the school's program and the
academic achievement of her
students.
"She spent many hours beyond

talented and creative individuals
I've had the opportunity of
knowing," said Montgomery. "She
is a dreamer and a finisher.
Whatever she starts, she will finish
it, no matter what it takes--that's
praiseworthy.
"Her strongest gift is the gift of
working with and nurturing young
ladies. She has demonstrated this
more than once. She established
the Taylor Interdenominational
Christian Organization (TICO) in
1975 to meet the needs of Christian
ladies in the community.
"From this parent group, a youth
ministry was established and TICO
began to include males in their
choir.
"The song, 'May The Work I've
Done Speak For Me,' is very
befitting for Carolyn. Truly, many
boys and girls are educated,
productive, contributing members
of our society and responsible
parents because of her untiring
dedication and love of young
people. She has given of herself
spiritually, physically, emotionally
and financially, so that others may
have.
"Some may say, 'Why?' Demps
says, 'Why not!' After more than
five years of retirement, she is still
seeking ways to impact the lives of
our children," Montgomery added.
The next inductee, Dean Mann,
held the position of band director
for Taylor County High School and
Taylor County Junior High School
for 22 years.
In her nomination, Wanda Kemp
said that "in the past 50 years, very
few teachers have contributed to
the overall quality of education, in
both program and student
influence as Dean Mann. He
became the Taylor County High
School band director when he was
only 28 years old, and for the next
22 years, he WAS the Taylor
County High School band.
"From only 18 members when
he became band director at TCHS,


to over 120 members throughout
the late 1950s, 60's and 70's, Dean
Mann became a true TCHS legend.
"His exemplary level of musical
perfection brought TCHS band
performances to consistently
superior levels in concert and
marching band events at both the
district and state levels. He is one
of the most extraordinary examples
I know of, just how much a teacher
can positively impact a school,
students and the community.
"Above and beyond producing
superior marching and concert
bands year after year, Mr. Mann
and his willingness to go above
and beyond for his students and his
school ensured that school spirit,
school pride and personal
responsibility were at play year
round.
"All TCHS alumni know that for
more than two decades, being in
the TCHS band was the 'it' thing! If
you wanted to be in the band and
play football, he made it happen. If
you had a conflict with band and
another extracurricular activity, he
negotiated a remedy.
"If you needed help paying for
your. instrument, he somehow
found a way. His philosophy was
that a bond should exist between.
the band, the teams and the
cheerleading squad, along with the
directors and coaches, so that
school and team spirit permeated
the student body and the entire
community in a positive way
throughout the school year.
"I must learn to be at the right
place, at the right time, with the
right preparation and the right
attitude.
"Even today, you can ask about
his motto and former students will
repeat it verbatim, with enthusiasm
and respect. Superior ratings do
not come easily. They do not just
happen consistently, year after
year. Superior ratings demand
superior dedication, knowledge,
work ethic and leadership.
"He taught these qualities by
example and that is why the TCHS
band was so superior during his


leadership years. It is why his
students loved and respected him
so much and were willing to make
the sacrifices necessary to achieve
and maintain such superior
performance standards.
"Very simply put, Dean Mann
was loved, admired and respected
by his co-workers and the Taylor
County community. Parents trusted
him, teachers modeled after him
and music directors throughout the
state admired him. He brought
such class, honor and prestige to
the band, that his name will always
be synonymous with the TCHS
band program.
"An excellent teacher's influence
can last a lifetime and Dean
Mann's has. For over 50 years his
name has stood for personal
responsibility, high expectations,
high performance and spirit and
pride for school, team and each
other.
"I attended Mr. Mann's funeral
and it was one of the largest I'd
ever seen. Hundreds of his former
students and children of former
students came to pay their respects
to him and honor the influence he
had had on their lives.
"Many spoke and all had a
different story to tell about their
days in the band. But every single
story had a common thread--Mr.
Mann and his expectations for
nothing less than one's absolute
best and his love for TCHS, his
students and his music.
"His influence to the Taylor
County High School Band is
nothing short of legendary. There
was only one 'Mr. Mann,' and I am
very grateful that TCHS was his
home," Kemp added.
Another inductee, Verna Mae
Woodfaulk, worked in the Taylor
School District for 44 years, where
she worked as office manager at
Jerkins High School and then later-
at Perry Primary School.
"Verna served faithfully during
her tenure," said Perry Primary
School 'Principal George Clayton
in nominating Woodfaulk. "She,
was willing to come in early, stay


late and work at home when
deemed necessary to complete any
assignment given to her. I can
remember her coming to work
during after-school hours, when
she was ill, to make sure that
payroll and other documents were
submitted on time.
"Verna loved her job. She was
trustworthy, dependable and
maintained confidentiality at all
times. She had a positive working
relationship with the staff and
anytime someone had a problem
and needed someone to listen, she
was available.
"Being actively involved in her
church and as a Sunday School
teacher, she gained much respect
from the youth. Not only did she
teach God's word, she strived daily
to align her life with her teaching.
"I was a student at Jerkins and
later'a co-worker at Perry. Primary
and her Christian character has
always been the same.
"Regardless of the storms in her
life, she kept the faith and
maintained her dignity," Clayton
added.
A reception will be held for the
inductees on Monday, Jan. 29,
from 3:30 to 5 p.m. in the board
room at the administrative
complex, located beside Perry
Primary School. All family and
school friends of the honorees are
cordially invited to attend.

15-foot snowman stolen


GRINCH
Continued from page 1
At Pineview Apartments. a 15-
foot tall inflatable snowman and a
wreath were stolen.
The thieves left a note, saying,
"The Grinch was here."
The apartment manager told
police that as she turned the lights
off the night before around 11:30
p.m., she noticed a "small silver
vehicle pull up and two white male


juveniles and one white female
juvenile got out of the car and were
looking at the snowman, which
was stolen."
One Ridge Road resident
reported that sometime after
midnight Saturday, someone
knocked down plastic candy canes
which lined the driveway.
They also knocked down lights
and stole two very large wooden
candy canes, which were later
discovered across the street from


their residence.
The homeowner called police
again later, after he found an index
card on which was written, "The
Grinch loves to see you smile."
Officers with the Perry Police
Department said Tuesday that if
the "Grinch" is caught, he will not
get the chance to let his heart grow
two sizes bigger.
Instead, officers maintain, "he
will be arrested for criminal
mischief."


,,Bringing Christmas cheer
The Perry Police Department, AMVETS Post 20, Ladies Auxiliary and Apalachee Center
teamed up with two local merchants to bring a little extra "Christmas cheer" to some local
needy families. With help from Wal-Mart and Gunrunners Sporting Goods, several local
children will receive fishing gear and bicycles. The police department donated helmets.

the potential site will undergo
further detailed assessment.
"Our commitment is to provide
reliable and affordable energy to
more than 1.6 million customers
every day," said Jeff Lyash,
president and CEO of Progress
Energy Florida. "We expect
demand for electricity in our
service territory to grow by more
than 25 percent in the next decade,
and today's announcement is part
of our long-term, balanced
approach to meeting our

.The state's landmark energy
plan, adopted this year, recognizes
the need for new plants, as well as
the critical role that nuclear power
already plays in promoting reliable

Floridjans.
W e agree with state and federal
Sladers that nuclear power must
continue to be part of a balanced
approach to meeting the state's
. growing needs -- an approach that


of our state's reliable energy
supply was again made clear last
summer, as an extended heat wave
caused significant issues
(including blackouts and
brownouts) in New York and other
parts of the country," Lyash said.
Lyash said as Florida's
population and energy. needs
continue to grow, Progress Energy
and the state will continue to rely
on increased energy efficiency
initiatives and renewable energy
sources to help ensure a reliable
and affordable supply of electricity
for everyone.
"But even with an emphasis on
those critical components, Florida
also needs new power plants," he
said.
While other types of power

years the significant customer and

company's decision making about

Commission extends extra


1-cent bed tax to 10 years


The Taylor County Commission
has agreed to extend an already
approved one-cent increase to the
county's bed tax from five years to
10 years.
The funds have been earmarked
for the installation of new air
conditioning and heating at Forest
Capital Hall.
The commission originally
approved the additional tax, which
is applied to anyone staying at
establishments such as hotels


within the county, in October of
2005 for five years.
According to Taylor County '1
Tourism Development Council
(TDC) Director Dawn Taylor,
extending the tax for 10 years will
allow her council to bond the tax
revenue so work can begin now
rather than waiting for the money
to accumulate. Taylor estimated
the additional tax, which went into
effect this year, will result in
approximately $45,000 per year.


At the commission's Nov. 28
meeting, Commissioner Rudolph
Parker made a motion to approve
the extension and Commissioner
Pat Patterson seconded. The
measure passed 4-1 with
Commission Clay Bethea voting
against.
County Administrator Buddy
Humphries told commissioners
early estimates for the project were
much higher than expected and
they.were working on the issue.

manufacturer goals and client
needs for mutual benefit and
exhibit significant tenure with both

The U.S.- Congress recently.
passed the "PREEMIE" Act (S.
707), sparking applause from the
March of Dimes organization on
both a. national and local level.
"Congress has responded to the
growing crisis of premature birth
by approving a bill that will
increase federal support for
research and education on
prematurity. On behalf of three
million active volunteers and 1400
staff of the March of Dimes
working in every state, the District
of Columbia and Puerto Rico, I
thank the United States Congress
for approving the "PREEMIE"
Act," Dr. Jennifer L. Howse,
president of the March of Dimes,
said as the U.S. Congress sent the
act to President Bush for his
signature.
m "Premature birth is one of the
most common, serious and costly
problems facing America's infants,
affecting more than 500,000 babies
in the U.S. each year, and causing
djWjAIty.jgd &at, ir,. too .n,.49
cases. Recent, government data-
shows preterm birth to be the
leading cause of infant mortality,
accounting, for more than two-
thirds of infant deaths.
"In addition to the emotional toll,
on families, the financial impact of


the problem of premature births
was brought into sharp focus by a
recent report from the Institute of
Medicine that found preterm birth
cost the United States more than
$26.2 billion in 2005 in medical
care, lost household and labor
market productivity and early
intervention services. An earlier
study by the March of Dimes
estimated that the in-patient
hospital charges alone were $18.1
billion in 2003, 44 percent of
which was billed to employers and
.other private plans and 49 percent
to the Medicaid program. We look
forward to President Bush signing
this bill which will benefit
America's Children and their
families."
"The goal of the bill is to start
pumping federal dollars in helping
with premature births," March of
Dimes Big Bend Division Director
Jennifer Bitner said.
"Everything we've been ,doing
has been funded by our fundraisers
and ,activities. The problem is so
big andi' so Vast' it nedaed" the
support of the federal
government."
"March of Dimes volunteers and
staff across the nation have worked
toward this day for more than three
years," Howse said.

"In one of its most important
provisions, the bill authorizes a
Surgeon General's conference at
which scientific and clinical
experts from the public and private
sectors will sit down together to
formulate a national action agenda
designed to speed development of
prevention strategies for preterm
labor and delivery."
The March of Dimes is a
national voluntary health agency
whose mission is to improve the
health of babies by preventing
birth defects and infant mortality.
Founded in 1938, the March of

and advocacy and in 2003
launched a campaign to address
the increasing rate of premature
birth.

__ Following great week


TCMS's Ashley Mixon boots the ball as a Ft. White player
defends.


FWC's speckled trout


goal exceeded in state


-, A Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
stock assessment of spotted
seatrout indicates that the
management goal for this popular
hnear-shore fishery is being met.
:The FWC reviewed the assessment
during its public meeting
Thursday in Key Largo.
The FWC routinely collects and
analyzes data concerning key
marine fisheries species such as
spotted seatrout, and these data
provide vital information for the
development of management
regulations.
The spotted seatrout assessment
found that FWC's management
objective of a 35-percent spawning
potential ratio iSPR) is being
exceeded in all four regiions of the
state. SPR is the ratio of the egg
production of mature fish in a
fished population .to. the ..e
.prodMuon tlhait w'oa cL-[i LI itre"-
population w3as not fished.
The stock assessment examines
`:-gspotted seatrout in four
geographical areas in the state.
.Current SPR levels on Florida's
Gulf coast are 38 percent in the
northwest region and 44 percent in
the southwest region. On the
:state's Atlantic coast, current SPR
levels are 62 percent in the
northeast region and 51 percent in
the southeast region.

S; however, the number of directed
trips for spotted seatrout has
" increased since 1996 in all
regions. Consequently, even
though the management goal for
spotted seatrout is now being met,
the FWC intends to carefully
monitor fishing effort for further
ificreases that could put pressure
on the stocks.
The FWC will also form a work
...group to review ,the recent
.:assessment results and consider
whether management changes are
1 warranted. The next assessment for
spotted seatrout is due in 2009.


Spotted seatrout is primarily a
recreational fishery, however a.
limited commercial summer,
fishery is still allowed.
Commercial landings account for
only about 1 percent of the total
statewide harvest.
Two management regions have
been established to manage the
recreational harvest, of spotted
seatrout. The North region
includes state waters on Florida's
Gulf coast north and west of a line
near the Pinellas/Pasco counties
border near Fred Howard County
Park in Pinellas County and on
the Atlantic coast north of the
Volusia/Flagler counties border.
The South region includes all
other state waters.
A slot limit of 15-20 inches
total length applies for
recreationally harvested spotted
-,eatrout statewide. The daily\
rccreatir nal j i g 'limit- ti- l rt"ntl '
five fish per.person in the North
region and four per person in the
South region, with an allowance
of one fish to be larger than the
maximum size of 20 inches total
length.,
All spotted seatrout harvest is
prohibited in February in the
North region and during November
. and December in the South region.
These closed seasons protect
seatrout during winter cold spells
when they are particularly
susceptible to harvest. r-
Comme'tcial spotted seatiout
harvest is allowed only in' June,
July and August. The size limit
for commercial harvest is 15-24
inches total length and there is a
trip limL of "5 fish per peson per
day or per vessel, whichever is
less.
A restricted species endorsement
is required to harvest seatrout
commercially. The simultaneous
possession of ',gill niets, and'
seatrout is prohibited, and towing
an extra vessel to exceed the bag
limit is also prohibited.

The Taylor County Middle
School Girls Soccer team had a
great week of play. On Tuesday
the Lady Dogs traveled to Ft.
White to take on the Indians. It
was a repeat matchup of two
teams who met in the opening
round of the Lake City
Tournament three days earlier.
"The first time we played them
it was a close game, but we won
2-1, so this time I asked the girls
to step up their play a bit and see
if we could play a more complete
game," said Coach Jonathan
Mauk. "They did exactly what I
asked. Our girls did a good job
passing and finding each other on
the field. This team is starting to
play very good soccer."
TCMS ended up beating Ft.
White 7-0. Scoring for the
Bulldogs was Serena Peacock with
2 goals with an assist; Savannah
Cantrell with two goals and one
assist; Shae Horner, one goal and
one assist; Katie Holden, one
goal; Jenna Wilson, one goal, and
Courtney Brown, one assist.
On Thursday Taylor traveled to
* Lake City to play a tough and
undefeated Lake City Middle
School team.
"Lake City is a very good team
that beat us 6-1 the last time we
played them, so we knew that we
had our work cut out for us," said
Mauk.
"Our.girls are playing very good
soccer right now and we told them
what it would take to win the
game, and they went out and did
it. We handed Lake City their first
loss of the season; I can't say
enough about' the a total team

End the Year with a
Bang of Holiday
Hunting Traditions
There's finally a chill and a cer-
tain festiveness in the air as most of
us try to take time off from work to
enjoy spending quality time with
family and friends and reflect on
the passing year. Children will be
out of school on winter break soon,
and while the holiday season's
upon us, so are several traditional
hinting opportunities.
The second phase of waterfowl
and coot season comes in statewide
Dec. 9 and runs through Jan. 28.
In addition to the usual hunting
license and permit requirements,
duck hunters also must have a
Florida waterfowl permit ($3) and
a federal duck stamp ($15).
. The daily bag limit on ducks is
six, but you need to know your
ducks before you pull the trigger,
because there are different daily
limits for each species. For
inrijnc,.. within the six-bird limit
d ir.. can only be one :lad.. duck,
one mottled duck, one fulvous
whistling-duck, one pintail and one
canvasback. Only two of your six-
bird limit can be redheads, wood
ducks or scaup, and you may. have
only four scoters or four mallards
(of which only two can be female)
in your bag.
All other species of ducks may
be taken up to the six-bird limit,
except harlequin ducks. Taking or
attempting to take harlequins is
illegal. The daily limit on coots is
15, and there's a five-bird limit on
mergansers, only two of which
may be hooded.


When hunting waterfowl, hunters
. may only use non-toxic shotgun
shells. In fact, it's illegal for
hunters even to possess lead shot
when waterfowl hunting. Only
iron (steel), bismuth-tin and various
tungsten-alloys are permissible.
For something different, try
woodcock hunting. Woodcock sea-
son runs Dec. 16 Jan. 14.
Woodcocks are excellent game
birds because they hold well for
pointing bird dogs and provide a
challenging shot when flushed.
The daily bag limit is three.
The third phase of mourning and
white-winged dove season opens
Dec. 9 and runs through Jan. 7.
There's a 12-bird daily bag limit on
doves.
From November on, shooting
hours for all migratory birds are
one-half hour before sunrise to sun-
set. You must get a no-cost migra-
tory bird permit where you pur-
chase your hunting license before
you hurt jan/ of these birds, thor'ul
T h, ..-nL, firearm you're .,l :."-..:.
to hunt migratory game birds with
is a shotgun, no larger than 10-
gauge. Shotguns must be plugged
to a three-shell capacity (magazine
and chamber combined). Bows
also are legal.
Retrievers and bird dogs can be
useful in hunting migratory game -
birds. Artificial decoys, as well as
manual or mouth-operated bird
calls, also are legal and essential
gear for duck hunters.
You may hunt migratory game
birds over an agricultural field, as
long as the crop's been planted by
regular agricultural methods.


far. I look forward to our last 4
games of the regular season."
The Lady Dogs play. Florida
High at home on Monday before
they go on the road to play Lake
City Richardson (Tuesday) and
Mayo on Thursday.

However, don't even think about
"sweetening" the field by scatter-
ing agricultural products over it -
or anywhere near it or you could
wind up in serious trouble. It does-
n't matter if you aren't the one who
scattered the bait. If you knew or
should've known that such bait
was present, you're accountable
under the law.
Some other things you can't do
while hunting migratory game birds
include using rifles, pistols, cross-

For Florida State Bluegrass Festival



Taylor welcomes 'Entertainer of the Year'


Rounder recording group The
Grascals took home the top award
for Entertainer of the Year at the


17th annual International
Bluegrass Music Awards, held
recently at the Grand Ole Opry


House in Nashville, Tenn.
The group will bring its award-
winning sound to Taylor County as


headliners for the 2007 Florida
State Bluegrass Festival.
The festival will be held Friday,
April 6, and Saturday, April 7, at
Forest Capital Park.
"We are very excited to welcome
a band of this caliber to the annual
bluegrass festival. In fact, they will
be the third IMBA 'Entertainer of
the Year' winners we have
had perform here," bluegrass
festival coordinator Dawn Taylor
said.
"And we just heard that the band
has also been nominated for a
Grammy."
The win came just two years
after the band introduced itself to
the bluegrass world, and one year


after being named Emerging Artist
of the Year and receiving the Song
of the Year award for "Me and
John and Paul."
As "Entertainer of the Year," the
group is in the distinguished
company of previous winners
including the Del McCoury Band,
Rhonda Vincent & The Rage,
Alison Krauss & Union Station
and Cherryholmes.
Rhonda Vincent & The Rage and
Cherryholmes have both appeared
in Perry.
"This is a dream come true for
us," said band vocalist and guitarist
Jamie Johnson when accepting the
award.
"We were all sidemen first, and


j Perry student wi


RsA AWW


we learned from all of our heroes
and mentors who started as
sidemen--people like Flatt &
Scruggs, the Osborne Brothers, the
Del McCoury Band, Ricky Skaggs
and Doyle Lawson. We're thrilled
to have the chance to play the
music we love and be accepted for
what we do."
The Grascals also shared in
Album of the Year honors for their
contribution to Celebration of
Life: Musicians Against Childhood
Cancer.

B&GC begins new behavioral program,


The Boys & Girls Club of
Perry/Taylor County is starting a

made possible through a grant
from the Florida Department of
Juvenile Justice.
"We are excited that we are now
able to provide at-risk men in
.... dl nd hii-h i school v.iih l an
opportunIity to improve their lives


by reinforcing positive behavior
and rewarding progress and
achievements along the way," said
Kevin Kidd, executive director.
BMRP will reduce academic
failure and lack of commitment to
school by tracking student
attendance, behavior and school
performance. Program staff will
work with school staff to receive
v, weekly updates on ,student
progress and then assess and


discuss behavior modification
strategies with students, parents
and teachers.
"By working within this
framework," said Kidd, "we hope
to create a system of family
support which will encourage
success in these young men."


A Perry student will be among
those honored when the North
Florida Community College

Miller, who has been in the
Madison County school system for
nearly 30 years, was elected
Superintendent in 2004. A 1970


graduate of NFCC, Miller holds a
B.S. from Florida State and a
master's degree from Nova
University. She has been a teacher
and administrator in the

Taylor County Animal Control:


Hunters should have


ID tags for their dogs


Submitted by TAYLOR COUNTY
ANIMAL CONTROL
Taylor County is known for its
vast hunting area. During this time
of year, the Taylor County Animal
Shelter more than doubles the
number of hunting dogs taken into
its facility.
Many citizens/animal, lovers
pick up what appears to them to be
stray hounds on the side of the
road (even though they are in the
middle of hunting zones) and bring
them to our shelter.
We have also had several
families "passing through" our
county who find what they
consider stray hunting dogs; they
pick the animal up and take it back
to the animal shelter in their
hometown because it has no collar
or ID.
Please be sure that your name
and working phone numbers are on
your collars.
Even though tracking collars
help to ensure you can find your
dog in the event that they wander
on the wrong path, it doesn't


I

provide animal control staff proper
identification to have your animal
returned to you.
Regarding illegal dumping of
carcasses: Hunters, please use
consideration when discarding
animal carcasses.
Animal control receives
numerous complaints weekly due
to improper disposal of deer, hog
and fish carcasses.
When complaints are received,
animal control officers are
responsible to go out to the site and
properly bury or dispose of
these.
We are spending numerous man
hours on these unjustified calls
which not only takes the officer
away from normal day-to-day
functions, but which also bears a
cost to the taxpayers, for our
services.
Hunters, please take an extra
few minutes to dispose of these
carcasses so that the general public
does not have to witness the
actions of irresponsible hunters in
our area.

Editorial


B-2 Taco Times December 13, 2006


Internet victimization



knows no boundaries


Dear Editor:
At any given time, there are an
estimated 50,000 predators online
searching for children. Given the
fact that 30 million children in the
United States use the Internet on a
regular basis, the threat to our
children is imminent! Although
we like to believe that our children
are safe because we are in a small
town, online victimization of
children knows no boundaries.
Predators regularly use the
Internet to attempt to meet
children, learn from other
predators, or exchange child
pornography. This proliferation of
child sexploitation and
pornography in the anonymous
environment of the Internet allows
child predators, or even those who
have not offended yet but are
predisposed to do so, to hide
behind the monitor of their
computers and commit
unbelievable acts of violence
against our children. It also
convinces them that their thoughts
and beliefs about children are
normal.
When most people hear about
child pornography, they
automatically think of teens who
willingly pose for inappropriate
photos. The reality is that many of
the photos and videos are of


violent criminal acts, including
rape, torture, and bondage, on
child victims. Even more shocking
is that 83 percent of the photos
seized to date included photos of
children ages 6-12, 39 percent
were of children ages 3-5, and a
terrifying 19 percent of the photos
depicted such acts against infants
and toddlers under the age of three.
Law enforcement, prosecutors, and
mental health professionals tell us
that those who possess or view
child pornography have often
committed sex crimes against
children themselves, or will do so
if not prosecuted and incarcerated.
As a society, we must stand up
collectively to say that our children
will not be used to provide
entertainment or gratification for
predators who seek to harm them,
nor will we allow a multi-billion
dollar industry to continue to make
money off of the innocence of our
children through the production
and distribution of child
pornography. This was the subject
of the Project Safe Childhood
Conference in Washington, D.C.,
last week, where Attorney General
Alberto Gonzalez encouraged us to
tell the story and repeat it louder
and louder until we are heard and
the threat is contained. Even one
child victim would be one victim


too many.
Awareness and education are our
first steps toward protecting..4our
children from this danger. It is
critical that each parent,
grandparent, teacher, school
official, child care provider, church
leader, and anyone else who has
regular contact with children
understands the threat and knows
what to do in order to protect the
children in their care.
The Florida Network of
Children's Advocacy Centers will
be providing free training for
parents and other interested
community members during
January. This training will provide
more information about the dangers
of the Internet and what we can do
to protect our children. The training
will be held at Joyce's Main Street
Cafe from noon until 1 p.m., and
there is no charge for the training.
If you wish to have lunch while you
are there, you will be responsible
for the cost of your lunch.
For more information, or to
request a speaker on this topic for
your church, civic, or other
organization, please feel free to
contact our office at 584-4791.

area was immediately mobbed by
people. The machine operator had
to shut down and get an officer to
move the people out of the area
before he could continue.
As soon as he started again, the
crowd ignored the police officer
and moved into the area and again
he had to shut down. Shortly, two
more police officers appeared and
put up police barrier tape across
the area. This seemed to fix the
problem and the snow crew was
able to finish their job. Finally it
was ready for the kids to play. A
lady who appeared to be "in
charge" was shouting for people to
form a line in front of the gym,
which some of us did.
When they started to let people
in, others rushed in from all
directions and it was a scene of
chaos. The supervisors of the
attraction had lost control and any
semblance of order. There then
ensued some swearing in the
crowd and children crying while
frustrated parents were leaving due
to the chaos and disorder unfolding
there.
I also chose this moment to
leave with my daughter. She was
very disappointed at not getting to
play in the show, but it was just too
out of control to allow it.
I hope that anyone visiting from
out of town didn't witness this
display of very poor planning and
lack of leadership by our Taylor
County Tourism Development
Council. Proper preparation and
planning in advance could have
prevented this.

Letters to the Editor


'Give them a chance and shop at home'


Dear Editor:
From time to time, I like to
address the topic of keeping our
shopping dollars in the local area
whenever possible. This is a very
important message, and one that
we must all work to get across over
and over again, especially during
the holiday season. As business
community leaders, chamber
members must take a lead role in
trumpeting this crucial message.
When people you know mention
that they are thinking about
purchasing something out of town,
point out to them that when they do
their shopping outside of the area,
the following chain reaction is set
into motion which eventually
affects us all in a very negative
way.
Obviously, local retailers are the
first to suffer, but it' doesn't end
there. These business owners and
their employees are also
consumers. If profits are down at
their own store, they in turn will
have less money to spend at other
stores, reducing the profits of those
establishments.
Reduced profits for local
businesses result in less money
being deposited with banks,
thereby reducing the amount of
money available to be loaned (and
reinvested) in the local community.
Businesses that are hit especially
hard by out-of-town competition
may close, decreasing property
values of commercial properties
and personal properties alike,
leaving less money for public
schools, street maintenance, and a
whole host of other public projects
and needs. Eventually, the entire
local economy, and every local
resident's pocketbook, suffers in

one way or another.
Having pointed out this chain ol
events, ask the potential oult-o-
town shopper if they haic checked
to see if the product is avaihlale
locally. It never ceases to ama1 e

lived in our area for several ye;u-s

possible, give these individuals
some suggestions regarding which
local retailers might have the
particular item they are seeking.
Assuming that the item can ihe
purchased locally, the leading
concern will inevitably he price.
Remind your acquaintances that
they should not assume that out-of-
town retailers can always heat the
prices of Perry retailers. If price is
their main concern, tell them to at
least give local retailers a chance to
match or beat out-of-town prices.
If a local retailer can meet or beat
the price, then obviously there isn't
a problem. If the local retailer's
price is higher, then tell the
potential out-of-town shoppers to
remember to add up the cost of gas
and what the wear and tear on their
car would be to drive out of town.
Adding these hidden additional
costs will give them a more
accurate idea of what the "trite"
cost of the item is if purchased out
of town.
Of course, it never hurts to point


out to them also that service.
hcIore and after the purchase
should be another important key.
A local store should be in the
position to give better customer
service than an out-of-town store.
This additional level of customer
service could help them to make an
informed purchase decision, and to
avoid buying something that
wasn't right for them.
FiIurthermore, remind them to
consider the additional time and
cost involved in getting their
purchased item serviced out-of-
town as opposed to locally.
While these are all
considerations that local
consumers need to take into
accounL, local retailers also have a
responsibility to keep local
residents shopping locally. They
must work to get their message
out, again and again. They need to
make their prices, all things
considered, competitive with out-
of-town stores. They need to
provide better service than out-of-
town stores, before and after the
sale. They also need to look at
how then can better serve their
customers, including offering
extended or different hours,
creative financing plans which
may be convenient to their
customers, a larger selection of
merchandise, and other incentives
for consumers to shop locally.
Remember, the two most
important things local business

spread the message of why it is
important and, more importantly,
to serve by example. If local
businesses expect local residents to

the greatest accomplishment

happen without the help of the
board, Kevin and the club staff,"
Hankerson said.
"It's rewarding to see the Boys

in our ability to deliver needed
services to our most valuable
customers, our youth. The club is
perfectly positioned for the energy
and leadership of Leo Gayle, our
