Carl Kenneth Thomley, 42, pled
guilty to second degree murder in
the beating death of Pamela J.
Padgett and received a 20-year
prison sentence in a plea
agreement reached Tuesday.
Thomley was ordered to pay
$5,000 to Crimes Compensation
for Padgett's funeral expenses as
well as $7,344 for Padgett's
medical expenses and the cost of
her headstone.
He was also ordered to pay a
$5,000 fine, $650 to the public


What began as an apparent
domestic violence incident, ended
in a shooting in Steinhatchee on
Feb. 22, with subsequent arrests of
three others who were charged
with tampering with a witness and
criminal mischief of more than
$1,000.
According to information
gathered from the Taylor County
Sheriffs Office, Daniel Jack
Corbin, 24, was at the home of
Cynthia Corlis, when the domestic
violence broke out.
TCSO Cpt. Ron Rice said the
violence escalated until Corlis
pulled a small caliber handgun and
shot Corbin in the abdomen.
Corbin was treated at the scene by
Doctors' Memorial Hospital
Emergency Medical Services
Personnel EMT Chris Williams
and Paramedic Janie Sites. He was


defender's office and $2,000 to
Taylor County Sheriffs Office for
investigative fees.
According to an arrest affidavit
filed with the Taylor County Clerk
of the Courts office, the altercation
began early on the evening of Sept.
15 at the Hwy. 27 Lounge, where
witnesses saw Thomley hit Padgett
several times and even heard him
threaten to "kill" her. Thomley was
asked to leave the lounge after this
occurred.
About two hours later, neighbors


then transferred to the ballfields of
Steinhatchee School and met by
DMH transport helicopter
AirMedic One and flown to
Shands Hospital in Gainesville.
The next day, Tony Anthony
Corbin, 22, Chelsea 1. Walker, 20,
and Ammy Nichole -Driggers, 29,
went to Corlis' residence, where
the shooting had taken place, and
"tried to gain entry by banging and
hitting on the front door and
windows, breaking several of
them," according to arrest
affidavits filed by TCSO.
"According to Corlis' statement,
a piece of wood was thrown
through a window of the house,
her SUV rear window was
smashed out and all three told her
they were going to kill her.

Bomb sauad investigates


Unidentified metal


raises suspicions
A bomb squad team in town for the fifth annual K-9 training seminar
hosted by American Aluminum was called in to help identify a
"suspicious" metal object discovered by a local teen.
The boy apparently went camping in Georgia last weekend and returned
with a large nietal object he had found near Lake Park.
"His grandfather told him it was an anti-tank mine; however, the boy's
father did a search on the Internet seeking to identify the piece and said he
felt it wasn't a mine. But the boy went to school and told everyone that he
had an anti-taken mine," Taylor County Sheriffs Office Captain Audie
Towles said.
"The school resource officer heard about it and we sent some officers
out to the boy's house to check it out. Choosing to err on the side of
caution, we asked if the bomb squad members in town for the K-9
workshop could come have a look. The officers found that there were
enough characteristics of the object to warrant contacting the military. So
to be on the safe side, we did and they sent a team0to look at it. They were
able to x-ray the object and determine that it was no type of weaponry
whatsoever.
"It is always better to be cautious around an object like that you can't
identify. Should you find something you suspect could be an explosive,
notify the local authorities immediately," Towles said.


And the winner is...
Polk County Junior Miss Morgan Bennett won the state
title during ceremonies held Saturday at Taylor County
High .School. The teen was one of 12 candidates from
across the state, including Taylor County's own Jennifer
Tedder, to take part in the program. (Above) 2006
Florida Junior Miss Laura Beard presents the state title
medallion to Bennett. (Right) Tedder won one of two
awards presented in the "Be Your Best Self" essay
contest held in conjunction with the scholastic
program. For complete details of the event, please see
page B 1.


To protect and serve
The fifth annual K-9 Training & Problem Solving
Workshop hosted by American Aluminum Accessories wraps
up Friday.Teams will hold a free demonstration Thursday,
March 8, at Dorsett Stadium, starting at 6 p.m. The family-
oriented event will include a special "K-9 meet and greet"
following the program. Free door prizes will also be available
for children.


reported hearing the couple
"fighting in Padgett's house."
It was during this time that,
"Thomley severely battered
Padgett and then waited
approximately two and one-half
hours before calling for medical
help," according to the affidavit.
"This couple had a history of
domestic violence," said Taylor
County 'Sheriffs Office Cpt. Ron

Taylor County Project Manager
David. Parker had a problem.
He was tasked with completing
of Heritage Pavilion project at
Forest Capital Park and had been
waiting for a shipment of hand-
made bricks to finish the facade of
the pavilion.
"We waited two and a half
months for the bricks to come in
since they were hand-made,"
Parker said.
When the bricks finally arrived,
however, he lost his bricklayer the
same day.
He went home and told his
father, 81-year-old Lewis Parker,
about his problem. He was
surprised, however, when his
father showed up at the job site a
few days later.
"He took it upon himself to show
up," Parker said. "He didn't even
tell me he was coming."
Lewis Parker was a brick layer
most of his career, his son said. He
later worked for the City of
Perry before retiring some 15 years
ago.
In all, Lewis spent more than a

arrived and aided in processing the
crime scene.
"We conducted a very thorough
investigation that day, which
included interviewing numerous
people, and made an arrest within
hours of the report coming in," he
added.
A comatose Padgett was treated
at the scene before being flown to
Shands Gainesville.
Doctors performed emergency

The Florida Commission on
Ethics denied petitions from Taylor
County Commissioner Clay
Bethea and former commissioner
Daryll Gunter for attorney's fees
for a pair of ethics complaints filed
against them by Taylor County
resident William "Rick" Causey.
The commission made its
decision during its public session
Friday, March 2, in Tallahassee.
The complaints were dismissed
in December by the commission,
which stated the complaints lacked
"legal sufficiency."
Causey, who became a member
of the Taylor Soil and Water
Conservation District Board of
Supervisors last month, filed the
complaints following an event held


Sept. 28 at the Perry Elks Lodge
sponsored by the' developers
behind the Magnolia Bay Marina
and Resort project.
According to attorney Bill Blue,
who represents Bethea and Gunter,
under Florida law, the two could
recover fees against Causey if they
could prove that he made false
statements against Bethea and
Gunter material to a violation to
the Code of Ethics with knowledge
that the statements were false or
with a reckless disregard for
whether the statements were true
or false.
"The problem in this case is that
Causey's complaint against Bethea
and Gunter did not allege any facts
against them material to an alleged


violation of the Code of Ethics,"
-Blue said.
"In other words, a person with
malicious intent may file a
'frivolous complaint against a
public official with impunity so
long as the words expressed in the
complaint are not malicious in tone
and the facts alleged are not
material to proving a violation of
the code of ethics.
"In the meantime, the person
against whom the complaint was
filed must still pay a lawyer to
defend himself."
The county commission
approved invoices from Blue--
$2,520 for Bethea and $2,560 for
Gunter--in January. Bethea
abstained from voting on the items.

All major computer operating
systems have released a software
patch to reflect the change of the
start, and end dates for daylight-
saving time. Comptiters using an
operating system automatic update
feature have probably already
received the software patch.
Most cable and satellite
television tuners and digital video
recorders will receive an update
automatically with the current
show schedule.
However, CompTIA warns,
many computers and other
electronic devices will require the
manual installation of a software
update. This includes almost all
computers, PDAs, VCRs and
mobile phones which are not
connected to the Internet. Voice-
over-IP phone' systems, GPS
navigation systems, alarm clocks
.and other "smart home" appliances
may also be affected.
According to The Old Farmer's
Almanac, Daylight Saving Tiine
first began in 1918 during World
War I to allow for more evening
light arid save fuel for the war
effort. Since then, Daylight
Saving Time has been used on and
off, with different start and end
dates.
Benjamin Franklin first
suggested the idea in 1784. It was
later revived in 1907, when
William Willett proposed a similar
system in the pamphlet "The Waste
of Daylight." Germany was the
first to officially adopt the light-
extending system in 1915,
followed by the British, and in
1918 the United States, when
Congress passed the Standard
Time Act, establishing the
country's time zones.

Six couples

play Newly

Wed game

on Feb. 14

"I can't go there!" declared a
very smart husband at the latest
Blue Creek Baptist Church
Valentine's Banquet, after he was
asked: what would you change if
you could change one aspect of
your spouse? We were playing our
version of the Newly Wed game.
Blue Creek Baptist pastor, Adrian
Land, facilitated a competition
between six resident couples. All
six couples could recite John 3:16
by heart and stated that next to God
and their loving spouses, their
children were the next most
important persons in a mother's
life. But the rest of the responses
were as varied and as funny as any
TV show, I would know, because 1
was writing all their comments
down. Dictation is not my best
suit, but I was able to keep up with
the riotous crowd.

Fred and Jerry Murphy, Howie and

Jerry Murphy knew Fred's
favorite magazine and Fred kpew
where she most wanted to travel
(if given the chance). Pam knew
Howie's favorite food. David
knew for sure that Laura would do
nothing at all to change his ways,
he was as good as gold to her. I
even thought he might have to eat
those words, but no, Laura stated
that there was nothing she would
change about him. One of the

Alaska, by the way, but you will
have to ask Irene yourself what she
wanted to change about Roger. !
will never tell. I will tell you
however that Howie's comment
was the funniest of. the night. He
didn't change his stance a bit but
shook his head in a negative
manner, while stating, "I can't go
there," when asked what he would
change about Pain. I would guess
however that couples who have
built two houses together, know
each other pretty well. I bet Howie
knew he better.not go there!!!
Could you tell what disciple.

at livestock show


& sale in Madison


By LORI WIGGINS
4-H Extension Agent II
They were brushed and groomed
as if getting ready for a beauty
pageant. But these were not girls
preparing to strut their stuff in high
heels and bathing suits at the North
Florida Livestock Barn, these were
swine, and they were being
groomed by area youth--down to
the baby oil and powder on their
skin.
More than 100 youth took part in
the 53rd annual North Florida


Livestock Show & Sale held in
Madison, Feb. 19-22. Fifteen
4-H'ers from Taylor County were


amng the participaiints preparing
their animals to show.
The show is organized to
provide an opportunity for youth to
raise and care for livestock, present
them before judges for competition
and then sell them. The goal of the
4-H Livestock program is to use
live animals to develop youth. The
main objectives of the program
deal with the young person, not the


Junior 4-H'er Haley Osteen placed first overall with her

animal. Youth do learn about
agriculture and livestock
production and develop an
appreciation for the livestock
industry, but the main objective is
to teach youth life skills. The
experience of youth owning and
working with animals, being
responsible for their care, health,
and growth, record keeping on
their animal, feeding, animal
health, grooming and exhibiting
them in a competitive environment
is a tremendous character building
process.
The Livestock Show kicked If
on Monday night with the swile
show. Junior 4-H'er Haley Osteen
placed first overall with her swine
and received a blue ribbon, while
4-H'ers Aucilla Slaughter and
Sabrina Vann placed second and

Portwood, third place blue ribbon;
Katelyn Lynn, fourth place with a
blue ribbon; Taylor Lilliott, fourth

fifth place red ribbon; Amanda
Portwood, sixth place red ribbon;
Brandon Osteen, eighth place red
ribbon; Hayden Lilliott, 11th place
red ribbon; Rayne Slaughter, 10th
place red ribbon; and Jaren
Murphy, 11th place red ribbon.
Participants earning swine
showmanship awards were Taylor
Lilliott, Hayden Lilliott and
Brandon Osteen. Taylor Lilliott

Showmanship Division.
Other awards given during the
show included:

Two local 4-H'ers also took part
in the Steer Show on Wednesday
night. Melissa Jones showed her

The participants would like to

Committee assignments



announced for Kendrick


/ Florida House of
Representatives Speaker Marco
Riibio recently competed the
cotuncil/committee assignments as
the current. Legislative Session
gets underway.
State Representative Will S.
Kendrick (R-Carrabelle) was
named to several key committees
that are of particular interest to his
constituents of District 10, a House
i District that covers all of Madison,
Taylor and Hamilton counties as
well as parts of Franklin, Wakulla,
Jefferson, Dixie, Levy, Alachua
and Columbia counties.
;Representative Kendrick, who
was first elected to the Florida
Hbuse of Representatives in 2000,
is serving his final term due to term
limits. His council/committee
assignments include serving as
chairman of the Committee on
Conservation and State Lands. He
will also serve as a member of the
Environment and Natural
Resources Council, Budget and -
P6licy Council and the K-12
Education Committee.
:As chairman of, the Committee
o~ Conservation and State Lands,
Keindtick said the greatest thing
that could be accomplished is "for
uS as a state to understand what our
state land inventory is: total
acreage, intended uses, and the
measures being taken to preserve
these lands for future generations."
As chairman, Kendrick's
committee will look at key issues
including land management for all
state lands' including those under
Water Management District


control ant the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission issues that come
before the House.


As a member of Environment
and Natural Resources Council,
Kendrick will have a role in
looking not only at areas under his
own committee but also water
management districts, agribusiness
issues, the Department of
Environmental Protection and new
energy initiatives that are
developing. This council will
oversee both the policy and budget
functions of these important
issues.
Serving on the Policy and
Budget Council will further
Kendrick's ability to follow those
same issues as this council gives
final approval to the budget before
going to the entire House of
Representatives for passage.
"Having served in the


appropriations process for the
previous six years, this is an area I
truly enjoy and understand," said
Kendrick.
"Serving on the K-12 Education
Committee is going to be
enjoyable because of the fact that
the tenor in the Legislature is that it
is time to tweak what we have
accomplished in past sessions to
make it work for all children. Our
#1 priority should l1e to do
whatever it takes to help children
succeed," Kendrick said. "Having
served 14 years on the Franklin
County School Board before
coming to the Legislature, I
remember and know many of the
struggles of districts across this
state. It is important that we give
school districts not only the tools
but also the flexibility they need to
provide a quality education."
Some of the issues that the K-12
Committee is expected to look at
include textbook 'adoption
procedures, FCAT, teacher
retention and career tracks for
those not inclined to not take the
academic track.
Kendrick summed up his
expectations of the 2007 Session
by giving this view. "During the
2007 session the people of Florida,
through the leadership of Speaker
Marco Rubio, will be heard. We
will tackle the tough issues
including education and escalating
property taxes along with 100
great ideas that Floridians have
expressed as important to them.
This session will truly be about
Floridians."

B-4 TaCO Times March 7, 200'7


Up, up and away
During their week-long stay in Perry, Florida Junior Miss'candidates toured Buckeye,
learning.about cellulose manufacturing. The high point of the visit was a trip to the top of
Buckeye's No. 4 recovery boiler--about 180 feet above sea level. From there, the teens were
able to get an aerial look at the manufacturing site and a view of the forested horizon which
confirmed Taylor County is, indeed, the "Tree Capital of the South." Formal ceremonies to
name the 2007 title holder were held Saturday, March 3, at Taylor County High School. Polk
County Junior Miss Morgan Bennett was named the state winner.
