The driver of a sanitation collection truck escaped serious injury when he pulled into the path of an oncoming log truck late
Friday morning on Highway 98. The impact knocked the sanitation truck across the road and into the eastbound lane. It also
tore off the front hood and fenders of the log truck, and bent the rear axle of the other truck. (Photo by Mark Viola)

Two state and locally approved
comprehensive plan amendments
which were linked to the halted
Taylor Energy Center (TEC) now
appear to be on their way to the
trash bin.
Commissioners agreed Monday
night to hold public hearings to
consider the repeal of the
ordinances passed in 2007.
The four utility partners behind


TEC announced July 12, 2007, that
they were suspending their
permitting efforts for the proposed
800-megawatt, coal-fired power
plant to be located east of Perry,
but the applications for the two
amendments were continued.
One amendment creates two
new land use categories for power
generating facilities within the
county. The second changes the


land use classification for the
proposed TEC site near Buckeye
(some 3,000 acres) from
agriculture to a new category
accommodating.solid fuel power
plants. The land is currently owned
by Buckeye and Foley Timber and
Land.
The amendments were approved
locally by the Taylor County
Planning Board and county


commission as well as on the state
level by the Florida Department of
Community Affairs (DCA).
Both the county and DCA
became involved in litigation
before a state administrative law
judge after a number of local
residents petitioned to have those
approvals overturned in


commission was the result of an
executive session the commission
held Monday, Jan. 28. Although
those proceedings are closed to the
public, the advertised purpose of
the session was to discuss the
upcoming administrative hearing.
The petitioners consist of six

A Taylor Correctional

fair condition after being attacked
by a unknown number of pit bulls
at her home in Mayo Jan. 27.
Rebecca Wimberly, 58,
sustained severe lacerations to her
arms and legs during the attack
and was in "critical condition by
the time EMS arrived at the
scene," a spokesman for the
Lafayette County Sheriffs Office

The dogs belonged to
Wimberly's son Benjamin; they
escaped from a pen located on the

were shot and killed by their
owner.
Wimberly was transported by

The Suwannee River Water
Management District (SRWMD)
appears to be in conflict with
the Florida Department of
Community Affairs (DCA) over
Dr. J. Crayon Pruitt's latest coastal .
development--The Reserve at
Sweetwater Estuary.
The golf course, residential and
commercial project, proposed to be
constructed between Dekle Beach
.and Keaton Beach, will be up for
permit approval when the district's
board meets Tuesday, Feb. 12, in
Live Oak.
It was originally scheduled for
SRWMD's January meeting but


was postponed at the request of
the state. SRWMD staff
have recommended that the
environmental resource permit
(ERP) be approved.
"DCA basically has stated that
they found the project in violation
of the coastal zone management
act," SRWMD's Jon Dinges said
Tuesday. "They are recommending
that the governing board deny the
permit."
But Dinges said DCA's request
is unusual.
He said there is no link between
an environmental resource permit,
which is administered by the water


management district, and land use,
which is governed by the DCA.
"The project developers can get
their land use permit before or after
their ERP permit. It happens all the
time," Dinges said.
Last summer, Pruitt killed plans
to construct the $700 million
Magnolia Bay Marina and Resort
on the same property after several
governmental agencies objected to
the marina and associated channel
into the Gulf.
According to Project
Environmental Specialist Beverly
Birkitt, the current project will
feature 624 condominium units, an


874-unit hotel, some single-family
housing and 280,000 square feet of
commercial space.
SRWMD, in its staff reports,
indicated approval of the newest
plan.
"As a result of the applicant's
(Pruitt's) efforts during the ongoing
project review, direct and
secondary wetland impact
avoidance and minimization
efforts are considered adequate to
meet rule criteria. The project is
not contrary to the public interest,"
District staff wrote in the permit
application.
According to SRWMD, wetland


impacts on the project were
reduced from 134 acres to 44 acres.
The applicant (Pruitt) proposes
to mitigate by a combination of
wetland creation (5.5 acres),
preservation (230 acres),
hydrologic enhancement (20.4
acres) and the purchase of
mitigation bank credits, according
to the District.
"The proposed mitigation more
than replaces the functional loss
associated with the project." the
staff report says.

Followmg m the footsteps of
another long-ago carpenter, more
than a dozen Campers on Mission
are turning their hand at restoring
the 100-year-old Robert M.
Henry Memorial Methodist
Church in Shady Grove.
A convoy of campers arrived
Jan. 11 and began renovations to
the wooden structure which sits
adjacent to the brick sanctuary at
the corner of C.R. 14 and Highway
221.
"This building was originally in
the spot where the brick church is
now. Dedicated in 1906, the
wooden structure survived the
great hurricane of 1935--which
blew the building completely out
of square. You can see inside
where they used braces to keep the
building from falling over," pastor
Wallace Holmes said.


"I have been preaching here
since 1982 and it has always been
a dream to do something with the
old church building. This was a
dream shared by many of the
church members and Shady Grove
residents. We have prayed about it
and now we're moving forward,"
he said.
Holmes contacted the Alabama
district of Campers on Mission
through local member Gerald
Oliver,
"They like to work on projects in
Florida during the fall and winter
months. It just so happened that a
project they had planned for
February fell through and they
were able to take on the job here in
Shady Grove. We are absolutely
thrilled to have them with us,
Holmes said.

Administrative law judge Bram
11 E. Canter issited an order last
week closing the consolidated
cater challenging Buckeye's
proposed wastewater permit while
leaving the door open to potential
future challenges.
Canter had suggested in a Dec.
26 "show cause" order he might
talke the action so the permit would
"M'se and proceed in a more
noritial and orderly manner."
Bilbkeye asked the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection (FDEP) to renew its
wastewater permit in 1995. The
proposed permit included
numerous process changes inside
the kill plus the installation of a
15 fle pipeline to move the
plafits discharge from the upper
Fenholloway to near its mouth,
?Bill legal challenges, agency
reviews and scientific studies have
slowed the process. A FDEP
permit status report on Dec. 21
liad recommended a hearing
abatement until March 1, followed
by another status report.
A company spokesman a said
Brickeye supports the
aditiinistraute law judge5 ruling.
!'The approach outlined by
Judge Canter appears to be the
best path to improve the
Fenholloway," said Dan Simmons,
Btickeye s public affairs manager.
"The judge's acuon w ill streamline
the procedural process and result
in a better pernur.' he said.

Construction is non-stop m:
Monday through Friday.


The average age of the
volunteers is 71; the camper in
charge of rebuilding the window
frames is 85.
If you ask the men why they
choose to spend their retirement
years laboring on construction
jobs, the answer is swift--"the
Christian fellowship."
Harvey Hastings has logged
more thim I8 years with the
campers mission and worked on
about ll 8 projects. His reward?
"The blessings you get out of it."
Coordinator Wilton Whigham of
Huntsville, Ala., serves as the main
contact for the campers and it is his
duty to "contact everyone and


direct the work."
He noted that the Alabama group
holds a state rally twice a year.
"This is where we report on the
jobs we have done and present any
potential projects. If someone is
interested in a particular project,
they sign-up. It is strictly on a
volunteer basis and is open to
whoever wants to sign up and
come," Whigham said.
But beyond the new foundations
and buildings they craft lies the
heart of their commitment. "We are
working for the Lord. Our ultimate
objective is to help reach people
for the Lord and welcome them as
believers," Whigham said.


"rk is on-going Monday through
Friday, with weekend breaks."
The renovation proicct includes
a complete overhaul of the interior
and exterior of the building.
"We are putting in new
bathrooms, heating and air
conditioning, vinyl siding and new


interior wall coverings. They are
also rebuilding all of the window
frames. The campers are donating
their time for the labor and we are
providing the materials. Anyone
wishing to contribute materials to
this effort is welcome to contact
me," Holmes said.

By B.D.WILLIAMS
"Go the Extra Mile"
The things you do for others, do
not jor your own June, but give the
glory to the Lord, and in our
Savior s name. -
An old gent who is lonely,
someone whose friends are few,
just be the kind of friend to them
that Jesus is to you.
When finding someone who is
depressed, or one whose road is
curved, you'll find the joy in
serving and not in being served.
When God sends one your way
in need, ask guidance f)vm above,


then give what help you have to
give and do it out of love.
So if you meet someone today,
too tired to even smile, just walk
along and share the load, and go
the extra mile.

Need money for college? Mark
Feb. 24 on your calendar.
Volunteers from North Florida
Community College are hosting
College Goal Sunday sites in
Hamilton, Suwannce and Madison
counties. The open-to-the-public
event provides expert assistance in
filling out the Free Application for
Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), so
prospective students can qualify
for financial aid to attend college.
This is the third year NFCC has
coordinated the drive in the local
area.
Trained volunteers will be ready
to help students from 2 until 5 p.m.
at the Hamilton County High
School Media Center in Jasper, the
Suwannee High School.Media
Center in Live Oak and at NFCC's
Marshall Hamilton Library in
Madison. .
We launched this program to
help students who dream of going
to college to gain better access to
millions of dollars in financial
aid," said Commissioner Eric J.
Smith, Florida Department of
Education-
"In just one day, anyone who
wants to learn about the financial
* aid process can get one-on-one
. help from the experts."
Returning students, high school
seniors and current college
students are encouraged to attend.
A $500 scholarship valid for any
college will be awarded at each
site to a student who attends the
event.
Not only will students have a
chance to win an on-site

about grants, work study programs
and scholarships to pay for
college, Smith added.
According to the Florida Office
of Student Financial Assistance,
college-bound students who
complete the FAFSA could qualify
for thousands of dollars in federal
and state need-based financial aid.
Gaining access to free or low-
interest money is an alternative to
high interest loans and huge debts
after graduation.
Last year more than 4,600
students and families participated
in College Goal Sunday events.
Dozens were from North Florida
counties.

IMzens gathered at the Taylor
Courity Public Library Monday,
Jazi. 28, to honor local historian
and liuthor Mary Lou Whitfield.
The Friends of the Library held a
author's reception, during which
those close to Whitfield, both
personally and professionally,
shared a few words and memories.
Whitfield recently published
1"815 -West Bay," a collection of
newspaper columns she published
in the Taco Times and the
Tallahassee Democrat.
James Gross, president of the
Friends, began the reception by
welcoming the record crowd to the
library.
He spoke of how Whitfield


wrote a letter to the Tallahassee
Democrat after seeing a notice
about community columnists.
''I lack the imagination to write
fiction, but find a lot of satisfaction
in scribbling down little narratives
out of the life right around me,"
she wrote in a letter dated Dec. 8,
1979.
"About myself, I was the tallest
irl in the 1929 graduating class of
he Taylor County High School
and because of that I was singled
out to march at the head of the
class, along with the tallest boys,
during our commencement
exercises," she continued.
Mary Ann Lindley, editorial
page editor for the Tallahassee


Democrat, joined the newspaper
in the summer of 1979, and was
the one who received Whitfield's
letter. .
"I remember your application,"
she said last week to Whitfield,
who sat in a place of honor in the
front row. .
"I loved that you were the tallest
person in your class. I was five
foot, 10 inches in the 10th grade."
Whitfield \vould go on to write


columns for the newspaper every
three weeks.
"I think [your columns] still
resonate," Lindley said. "They are
- relaxing. It's really a pleasure to be
here."
Next to speak was Taylor
County Superintendent of Schools
Oscar M. Howard Jr., who was
principal at Gladys Morse

Dear Senator Lott,
Thank you for asking my input
to the NRSC regarding Republican
strategy. However, I find the check

Therefore, at the risk of wasting

Dear Editor:
Every Sunday we put on our
mask, go to church to sit by
someone who is also hurting just
like we are underneath the smile.
The time for pretense is over. Let's
getreal!
In the past, we all tried to hide
the dysfunction in our families and
in us because we were and are
afraid that if we let our guard
down, if we opened up to
someone, if we came out of our
denial, somehow people would
think less of us and we could not
show our face in public again. Let
me tell you that is pride which is a
sin and everyone is in the same
boat.
There is a great opportunity in
erry on Thursday evenings at 7. It
alled "Celebrate Recovery." If

FUTURE
Continued from page 2
However, first I will list a few
statements to lay foundation and .
reasoning behind my strategy
thoughts:
Every Administration and
Congress from Jimmy Carter
forward has failed to provide the
desperately needed vision,
leadership and forcefulness to get
our country away from dependence
on Middle East oil. Our country is
p ying a terrible price for this
1 lure-
it is foolish to think that our two
century old country could have the
understanding and wisdom to fix
the problems rampant throughout
the Middle East as well those in
some areas of Asia and Africa. The
Islamic radical. as well as other
religious and tribal bickering and
conflicts have been going on for
si-veral millenniums and will likely
continue for several more
irrespective of what we try to do.
: The only successful conflict
in rventi ain the asrea Tbho the

Jefferson's initiation of our naval
attacks on the Barbary Pirates and
the associated United States Marine
invasion of Tripoli during the 1801
to 1805 period. You will remember
the pirates were Islamic radicals
seeking plunder to fund their
various endeavors of that period.
In spite* of large loss of life and'
huge spending, we have failed to
win the more recent wars in Korea,
Viet Nam, Afghanistan and Iraq.
We are nowhere in the decades
long standoff with Iran and we have
ourselves mired m the never endmg
quagmire of Lebanon, Palestige and
Israell.this Middle East involvement

and limited success represents a
pretty rotten return on the lost hves
of fine personnel and the billions of

t trh eTlr swealthbeing
The several decade failures of
administrations, congresses, states
and local governments to simply
enforce our own laws has created
our current Immigration mess
which is costing strillions and is
painfully dividing our country.
With the preceding in mind,
here's my strategy input for the
art to consider.
Place a "full court press" priority
on getting out from under Middle
East oil.
Much of our oil money flow to
the Middle East goes to funding
terrorist threats to our national
security. This in turn increases our
Military causalities and forces more
military and national security
spending by the United States.
Mobilize our nation to get away
from Middle East oil within years

Many fear the Middle East might
enter civil conflict chaos. If so, it
will probably be typical of most of
the last couple thousand years. With
the Middle East factions likely
more focused on internal issues and
less on their hate of the United
States, more time may be provided

border/immigration strategies in
