A tornado swept through Taylor County Saturday night, carrying away ,
the high school gym and dropping it in the Land of Oz.
Following the yellow brick road, audience members found :hemisehle
face-to-face with 13 colorfully-clad munchkins all searching "over the
rainbow" for the 2007 Florida Forest Festival Jr. Miss title.
By journey's end, Taylor County High School senior Lauren Hardin had
not only won the title, but also .two additional awards--Spirit of Junior
Miss and Physical Fitness (group B).
Joining her on the royal court were first runner-up Megan Perry and
second runner-up Katherine "Katie" Smith.
Hardin is the daughter of Robert and Melissa Hardin; Perry is the
daughter of Michael and Kimberly. Perry; and Smith is the daughter of .
Marlin and Connie Smith.
Rebecca Thompson, the daughter of David and Julie Thompson, was
another big winner of the evening, taking home four awards: Spirit of
Junior Miss (tie); Be Your Best Self Essay; Community Service; and Self-
Emily Ensley, the daughter of Tommy.Merritt and Donna Merritt, won
the Scholarship Award. Natalie Clark, the daughter of Lloyd "Bish" and
Amanda Clark, won the Fitness Award (group A), and Maria Hathcock,
the daughter of Staff and Dianna Hathcock, won ith'Trleni Award.
2006 Jr. Miss candidate Ashley Scott set the tone for the night with a
moving rendition of the title theme song, "Over the Rainbow."
Then, as Co-Chair Lauren Haynes was preparing to introduce host Rob
Nucatola of WCTV, a tremendous boom of thunder shook the building. A
tornado was fast approaching Perry and the gymnatorium was in its
path....and with that dramatic opening, images from the movie classic
"Wizard of Oz" flickered onto two giant screens flanking the stage. The
black and white images showed Dorothy being swept away.
Lights began twinkling on stage and Perry's very own Dorothy,

MainStreet Perry, Inc
Perry was designated as a Main Street community in 1992, by the National. Main Street
Center of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Main Street is an economic
development program which emphasizes downtown revitalization while preserving '"
and enhancing the heritage of communities through historic preservation.
Though MainStreet Perry has been in existence for almost 15 years, it is still
very much a grassroots program. Past success has depended primarily upon the
time and energies of a select few citizens. Thus, accomplishments have ebbed and
flowed along with the seasons of volunteers--from exhilarated to burnt-out. Still, there
have been major improvements in downtown Perry,
including the implementation of streetscape and "
facade treatments. But MainStreet Perry is about
much more than facelifts. It is about revitalization
of the city center and returning it to a place of
prominence and significance, which speaks of a
sense of identity and quality of life.
As our 2006-07 fiscal year winds down, we are
gearing up for a renewed effort to reorganize.
The foundation of that effort is a new Board of
Directors, to be elected by the membership in
October 2007. With this effort; we anticipate
the ignition of revitalization and preservation
initiatives throughout downtown Perry. But
community involvement is key to success.
To realize such an accomplishment we need
to foster sincere community interest and commitment. And
that's why we need yot! So join MainStreet Perry today. Help reinvigorate your
community and preserve its heritage for generations to come.

The 2007 Florida Forest Festival is at hand and my family
would like to take a few moments with you to reflect back
on 2006 and what it meant to our family: It was almost a
year ago that our son, Coby, was selected to reign with
Haleigh LaValle as the Little King and Queen over the
Florida Forest Festival. What an experience! Our heartfelt
thanks go out to Jennifer Tedder, as she watched over
Coby and Haleigh throughout the Festival. What a beautiful
young lady she is both inside and out. Also to Mrs. Marcie
Mrs. Tabitha, and Mrs. Amy, you were all so sweet to our
son and we'll never forget you. Coby received many gihs
from the business community and are too numerous to
mention each by name, to you we are very grateful and
want you to know that Coby enjoyed them all very much
The Chamber of Commerce and all that worked with our
children through out the year, Thank you from the botioni'
of our hearts.
We realize that all of the children were all winners and
that our son was fortunate to be selected as last years
little King. Thank you all and join us, all in celebrating the
Forest Industry again this year in'the 2007 Florida Forest
God Bless you all, Oby and VWendi Brannen

SMother speaks out
r-ine a about bus incident
I am the mother of the child left
on the school bus. I am responding
to the school bus driver's response
on this matter.
I believe it was her
responsibility to check her bus that
day. There should be no excuses as
to that. Her son wrote to you also
saying "Stone the Bus Driver." No
one ever said to stone her, we only
asked that she be fired. I believe
that our school board made the,
best decision to fire her. I believe it
was their responsibility to send the
message that this incident could
have been much more serious.
The staff who found my
daughter crying was getting ready
to go home for the da\ What if
they would not have found her?.
The gate would have been locked.
Can you imagine how my 5-year-.
old daughter.felt waking up on a
hot empty bus" She got off the bus
and was found, crying hysterically
for her mama. She now has to be
taken and picked up from school
because she is too scared of riding
the school bus.
I do not feel that the school
system failed me and mn daughter,
ho%%e'er Nirs Johnson feels like
the school s. stem failed her and
her son., ct she left my 5-year-old
on a school bus alone. That was
not our school system's fault that
she failed ,to do her job.

be wise to just lay it all down.
Opportunists who live off the
bounty of our county and then bad
mouth the locals are justifiably
considered rude and insulting. Our
mamas always told us to just do
the "kind thing." Perhaps Ms.
Beach somehow missed that sweet
piece of advice, but we all know
it's never too late to learn.
Thanks to the work of true
conservationists and a majority of
local citizens strongly opposed to
more pollution, a series of
projects have been soundly
Ms. Beach has openly supported
each of those proposed projects
that would have further damaged
Taylor County's natural resources.
Those harmful projects included a
missile/bombing range on our
Nature Coast, a polluting coal-
fired power plant, Magnolia Bay(a
seagrass and wetlands-destroying
development) and the recent
cellulosic ethanol boondoggle.
It may never have been
explained to Ms. Beach that a
serious roadblock was put up for
Buckeye receiving the IFAS
ethanol bid when. company
representatives did not openly
answer the questions posed in a
public records request to the
University of Florida. Those
questions, if answered, would have
revealed a long-standing hornet's
nest of air and water contamination
problems. In the interest of the
public, the local newspapers might
be encouraged to openly present
those questions and report on the
facts of the matter. Doing so
however would expose more cans
of wiggling worms, and would risk
many more hazardous questions
being asked. But people still have
the right to know; sometimes they
just need to know what questions

The house was built on a corner lot with
tall pine trees. In a style which hinted at
both "traditional" and "farmhouse," the
structure' emerged as a spacious and
beautiful place to call home.
The family painted it a soft yellow ,
trimmed it in a crisp white, added brass
exterior lighting, landscaped the :flow V
beds, poured a concrete driveway, placed
two pots of blooming flowers on the front
porch and considered themselves settled.
Then the grandfather died. In another
state. The grandmother found herself alone
and the daughter, in the soft yellow house,
longed to bring her mother close, to live
So they poured more concrete, built a
guest house that matched the main house
perfectly, attached it with a breezeway and,
pergola, added shutters and window boxes
filled with blooming geraniums. They
moved the grandmother in, placed two more
pots of blooming flowers on her stoop:and
considered themselves settled again...while
all the widows in my town salivated for a
family which would go to those lengths to.
make a grandmother feel at home.
So it became a pilgrimage of sorts.
Everytime I, or my cousins,, visited our
hometown, our mothers found a way to
show us the mother-in-law house.
Even if we were going to the grocery store
on the opposite side of town, they would
wind through this neighborhood of
substantial homes and always point out the
Sometimes, they were coy and suggested
they were admiring the potted caladiums.
Other times, they simply pointed to the
nice landscaping, hoping someone would
ask about the accompanying guest house.
But when their patience wore thin with our
deductive powers, they would say squarely,
"Now isn't that nice that they went to such
lengths to care for their mother--the one who
gave them life, and nurtured them all these
years. Now they're caring for her with a
space she can call her own, yet close enough
to come to her aid if she needs them."
We always smiled and nodded at each
"We get it," we would say to our mothers.
"These people are wonderful; we should
be wonderful too. Why don't you come live
"No, you live too far away..." the
aunts/mothers would say.
"No, I have my friends and my doctors
here..." they would add.
"No, why don't you move back here, build
a house underneath the pines and attach a
guest house just for me?" they never said.
They just kept riding us by the mother-irn-
law house, for nearly 15 years.
Now, when visitingg home, if we load up for
a road trip, my cousin asks, "We don't have
-Xt'orti'de by tfhi mother-in--law house, do %\e?"
* "It just happens to be on the way," my aunt
will reply, zooming in that direction.
This weekend, my two aunts zoomed from
my hometown to my home in Perry, and
spent a day and a night with us. They were
headed to Jacksonmille- for a wedding at the
yacht club, and had their dancing shoes in
the suitcase. Did I mention they are 82 and
\\e had- the most enjoyable visit, with
other cousins coming, too, to celebrate.
But when the wedding signaled their
departure on Saturday, the husband and 1
assisted dutifully with their luggage.
I wasn't supposed to hear the older of the
two say to her younger sister, "Well, we can
check this one off, too."
They both laughed, and I caught them.
"What did you just say?" I asked, point
blank, and they don't lie well unless they're
They looked at each: other like cornered
children and then the elder sister
elaborated: "We're going, to have to find us
a nice, assisted li\ng facility with one level;-
We can't take your stairs," she said.
"Are you touring for new living
arrangementss" I asked with hurt in my
voice. I actually.,thought they wanted to
come see me.
"We're always planning ahead," she said,
and I knew it to be a dangerous but true
They called again, after the wedding, when
returning to Alabama at 75 m.p.h. on 1-10. -
"Did you decide if you could live with the
granddaughter in Jacksonville?". I felt,
comfortable asking during our cell' phone
"No," said the younger, "too much traffic."
"Tell her we've still got one more option,0'
the older sister added from the driver's seat,
"My daughter has a one-story home,", she

Letters to the Editor
'Those who want clean water
have been attacked many times'
Continued from page 2
In their one opportunity where
Taylor citizens were allowed a
vote, the special interest tax
referendum,. voters sent a strong
message by soundly rejecting the
referendum. Citizens continue to
wisely recognize what would not
be good for Taylor County.
Apparently, personal attacks
*have become the modus operandi.
After repeated rebuffs on special
interests', wants at public hearings
on both state and local levels,
Perry's little political clique is now
resorting to personal slurs in
.newspaper dp-eds. Certainly Ms.
Beach has the right to attack the
credentials of local
environmentalists or anyone else,
and I am proud to defend her right
to free speech, but she should
know that such attacks will never
dampen the spirits of citizens
dedicated to improving our quality
-of life. Those who want clean
water and air have been attacked
-many times, but they continue to
seek a clean environment. Many of
-our county's neighbors,, visitors
and residents are showing concern
by asking questions about what is
going on here--about why the
rights of citizens are ignored by
elected officials who have favored
flagrant special interests over
democracy--elected officials who
are supposed to serve the people
Twre publicity campaign on the
BuKet Brigade Ms. Beach
complained about has not even
happened yet, but she seems to be
mighty worried about it, to the
point of announcing it for us to the
world. We appreciate the publicity
she has given the Bucket Brigade,
as many people are asking what it
is, what it will do, and how they
,can become involved. Obviously if
a Bucket Brigade project had no
merit, it would never get off the
ground... other groups wouldn't

department sponsors "Breaking
Bread" luncheons so that area
clergy can come together to
discuss issues surrofinding end-of-
life ministry, and to develop a
network of spiritual support.
These luncheons are open to all
clergy in our eight-county service
area. Big Bend Hospice has a
dynamic team of chaplains serving
each of our counties and
ministering to the needs of our
patients. We are fortunate to have
numerous volunteer clergy who
join our chaplains in providing a
supportive presence to help our
patients find peace and closure.
Ministering to the needs of those
facing the end of their time on
earth, helping heal spiritual
wounds, and preparing for death is
a difficult calling. I salute our
spiritual leaders and extend my
prayers of support.

help TRUE with the project (they
have), special interests would have
nothing to fear (apparently they
do), and if the air here were clean,
nobody would be interested in
learning what's in it (many people
If Ms. Beach' truly believes there
is nothing wrong with the air in
Taylor County, then she need not
have any concern about the Bucket
Brigade. However, her fear of the
project was evident in last week's
editorial. Perhaps she is worried
about what the Bucket Brigade can
It appears that Ms. Beach keeps
grasping at straws to help her small
coterie without recognizing that a
dramatic shift has taken place
towards protecting the
together with concerned citizens,
environmentalists, and ultimately
our community have repeatedly
been victorious over unwise issues
which would have endangered our
environment. As Diane Roberts
said, "One reason these atrocities
have not yet been visited on Taylor
County is that the locals'now rise
up and fight." The chamber
evidently gets upset about that.
The more special interests have
revved up the pressure to promote
bad ideas, the more citizens have
been willing to come forward and
stand up for what's right.
Concerned people have learned
that it's okay to be called
"conservationists"; that they can
proudly stand up to protect their
rights to clean air and water.
What is the next vision being
dreamed up against our
community by the cabal with
whom Ms. Beach has been so
closely aligned? It is my hope that
the next proposals will be clean,
smart, sustainable and good for the
future of our county--maybe they
will be wise endeavors that caring
people can fully support.
Conservationists prove by ,their
actions and fellowships that they
believe in principles which protect
our natural resources. They
diligently work to make changes to
ensure better outcomes, to
democratically, advance earth-
friendly ideas and ideals. Ms.
Beach is welcome to join us, to
share her conservation views with
us, to learn, to envision, to
participate, to become a valuable
volunteer, and to show her love of
community. The door to change
for the better is always open.
It's never too late to do the right
