A permit for Dr. J. Crayon
Pruitt's latest coastal development
here that was expected to be
approved Tuesday by the
Suwannee River Water
Management District (SRWMD)
was pulled from the agenda after
the State Department of
Community Affairs (DCA)
threatened to file a lawsuit.
DCA's threat surprised both
the project's staff as well as


SRWMD.
"I've beeninvolved in permitting
for more than 25 years and I've
never seen this happen before,"
said Beverly Birkitt,
environmental expert for The
Reserve at Sweetwater Bay,
located between Keaton and Dekle
beaches.
Longtime staff members at the
water management district said
they have never seen DCA threaten


to file a lawsuit against their
agency.
SRWMD's Jon Dinges said
there is no link between im
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.
In a Feb. I letter from DCA
Secretary Tom Pelham, the district
was told that DCA had determined
that the permit application was
inconsistent with the departlilent's
statutory authorities.
"The department is aware that it
will have the burden of defending
its position in any administrative or
judicial proceeding that may result
and is fully prepared to do so,"


Pelham wrote.
SRWMD Executive Director
David Still said after Pelham's
letter was reviewed by the district's
attorney, the staff had no recourse
other than to switch their
recommendation from "approve"
to "deny."
So Pruitt's staff asked that the
item be pulled from the agenda and

More than two weeks have
passed since the Jan. 29 primary
and the dust is settling from
passage of Amendment I which is
projected to reduce revenue for
local governments, in Taylor
County by approximately $1
million.
Gov. Charlie Crist, while
announcing his budget recently,
acknowledged Amendment 1's
impact on fiscally constrained
counties such as Taylor. To offset
those impacts, Crist is
recommending $26.2 million in
recurring funds, not beginning
until July 2009.
Representatives from the Small
County Coalition, however, have
pointed out that the language
approved last fall by the legislature


included a provision for fiscally
constrained counties beginning in
the 2008-09 fiscal year.
"Although we appreciate the
acknowledgment of the impact of
Amendment I on Florida's fiscally
constrained counties, waiting until


July of 2009 to offset the revenue
reductions will cause unnecessary
budget turmoil during Fiscal Year
2008-2009--only to be turned-
around in Fiscal Year 2009-2010,"
said John Cooper, chairman of the
Small County Coalition and


commissioner from Bradford
County.
"We believe the members of the
Florida Legislature understood
what they meant when they passed
legislation during the special
session on property tax reform


which included a promise that
fiscally constrained counties
would not suffer revenue
reductions estimated to result from
the implementation ofAmendment
1."
During the special session, the
Florida Legislature included
Section 9 in Senate Bill 4D
.assuring Fiscally Constrained
counties that beginning in fiscal
year 08-09 the legislature would
appropriate moneys to offset the
revenue reductions experienced as
a direct result of the
implementation of Amendment 1
or any revision proposed in the
November 2008 general election.

The event is being sponsored by Capital City

Highlights will include a silent auction,
entertainment from comedian/magician Dick
Stoner and music by the "Anything But Stressed"

Cash, Marie Osmond and Sawyer Brown.
"Join us for a night of good, clean fun that's

hilarious comedy, unbelievable mentalism and
audience participation," Chamber Director Dawn
Taylor said,
"Our silent auction will feature fine jewelry,

The Taylor County Commission
will meet with Doctors' Memorial
Hospital's board of directors next
week to discuss the hospital's
continuing financial crisis.
It will be the first time the two
boards have met since the county
denied a request from DMH for a
$500,000 bail-out in January.
The boards will hold a workshop
Monday. Feb. 18, at 6 p.m. in the
hospital's Windows Cafe.
"I'm going there to talk about
Our efforts to turn around the
hospital," CEO Charles Darcy said
Tuesday.
Givmg a brief update on the
situation at DMH, Darcy said that
admissions have been up over the
past week, with census numbers
reaching the 30s.
Low admissions have been one
of the biggest targets of blame for
the hospital's struggles, with
census numbers averagmg 10-12
over the past several months.
"It is impossible to predict
admissions," Darcy said. "The
increase is expected as we bit our


busy season, but it usually happens
in January.
Attempting to dispel rumors,
Darcy said the hospital will be able
to make its payroll this week.
"I'm looking at the financial on
a day-to-day basis. We can make
payroll, but there are vendors that
want to get paid. It is a struggle to
meet our commitments."
He added that the hospital is
continuing its outreach to the
community and meeting with
medical staff weekly to discuss the
situation.
"We are working to educate the
community. If they have questions
or concerns about quality of care,
we need to answer them," he said.
As for the hospital
reorganization, Darcy said efforts
"to get expenses in line and under
control are going very well."
The recent uptick in admissions
will also help revenue, but Darcy
stated again that admissions can't
predicted.

Two house fires and a fire at the Keaton Beach pier have kept local
firefighters on the run this week.
The first was an early morning residential fire at a home on Golf Course
Road Feb. 2. When Taylor County Fire-Rescue (TCFR) units arrived on
scene around I a.m., the home was fully involved.
It took more than five hours to put out the fire and clear the scene, TCFR
officials said.

Livestock auction slated Feb.21


By LORIWIGGINS
4-H Extension Agent
More than 125 exhibitors from
Taylor, Madison, Jefferson,
Suwannee, Lafayette and
Hamilton counties will be
showcasing their swine and steer at
the 2008 North Florida Livestock
Show & Sale in Madison Feb. 18-
21.
The exhibitors began raising and
caring for their animals last fall. It
takes a lot of hard work to care for
these animals as well as getting


them ready for the show.
Animals must be broke to lead,
exercised and special attention
must be given to feed and care
management.
Each exhibitor is also
responsible for keeping daily
records of their animal, writing a
project story and documenting the
project through photos.
And, of course, exhibitors
must be diligent in the ever-
daunting task of finding a
, buyer/sponsor.


This year you and your flunily
should stop by and check out the
show in Madison.
The swine show will held be
Monday, Feb. I8, at 6 p.m.
followed by the livestock scramble
on Feb. 19 at 7 p.m., the steer show
Feb. 20 at 6 p.m. and the Youth and
Livestock Sale/Auction Feb. 21 at
7 p.m.
For more information about the
show, or the 4-H youth livestock
project, contact the Taylor County
Extension Office at 838-3508.

on the same property after several
governmental agencies objected to
the marina and associated channel
into the gulf.
So Pruitt instructed his staff to
design a project without the marina
basin and channel, while adding a
golf course. .
According to Birkitt, the current
project will feature 624
cotidortlinium units,..an '874-unit
hotel, some single-ffillifly 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.

"All 30 fiscally constrained

the provisions of Senate Bill 4D
promising offset funding. These
counties are looking to receive
these funds beginning on Oct. I
when the 2008-09 fiscal year


said.
"That doesn't change the fact
that we have a hospital that has a
higher overhead."
He referenced the lease between
Taylor County and DMH for the
new building, in which it states
that DMH will be primary source
of healthcare in the county.
"That's my main focus:
providing access to healthcare to
the residents of Taylor County."
As for Monday's workshop, he
said, "I want to educate the
community on the storm we're
going through, how we're going to
get through it and how we're going
to continue providing healthcare to
Taylor County."

"If we can continue to control
our expenses and continue to have
positive revenue, we will have
time for the turn-around changes I
will discuss at the workshop," he
said. "These changes need to be
surveyed by the state and approved
by the state. We need time to
execute the plans."
He pointed out that population
and business growth projections
made at the time the new hospital
were proposed have not occurred.
Everythmg was done m good

2003, declared by executive order
10 North Florida counties alon
with Baker. Jefferson, Levy an
Putnam counties as the state's third
area of concern.
The designation will sunset June
.30 unless Crist intervenes with his
own executive order.
According to Brown, the county
benefits really from the
designation, from extra points on
state grants to additional
development incentives.
For example, the designation
assists the county when applying
for Department of Environmental
Protection Florida Recreation
Development Assistance Program
(FRDAP) grants. In recent years,
Taylor County has received some
$400,000 through that program
benefiting the sports complex.
"The designation was originally
designed to focus attention on
those areas to provide cataly st
projects to help revitalize their
economies," Brown said.
Early discussions with
representatives from the Small
County Coalition, to which Taylor
belongs, added to local concerns
that Crist may not continue the
designation.
Further discussions this week.
however, have made it appear that
Crist will move to renew it. Brown
said.
"We want everyone to know that
we're concerned about it and are
working to ensuree this critical
designation is continued." he
added.


The in test revenue cuts come at a
time when the county is already,
facing a number <>f financial
issues.
One 01 the biggest is that
approximately one half of the
county's available cush is currently
in the beleaguered State Board ol-
Administration Local Government
investment Pool, which has been
plagued by financial problems
since late November.
Some $16 million is in locked in
the so-called Fund B. which the
counts cannot access. The
renutinder can be withdrawn, but
all hi suffering a two percent
penal[\.
in December, the county
withdrew nil the funds that it could
withdraw without incurring the
penal[\: that monel is currently
invested in a local hunk. along with
any in funds received since.
The county has already lost
more than 5100000 in interest that
had been budgeted as revenue for
this \car. That amount is expected
to increase as the county will
receive no interest on the $2.6
million locked in Fund B.
The count\ has also been
notified that shared revenue from
state sales lux could drop more
than $150.000 helow expected
leids due to a drop in tourism
numbers.
Additionalli. several Florida
legislators are already talking
about further properly tax reforms
to be proposed during the
upcoming session.

community to join us," he urges.
"It's going to be a great morning,
with a great speaker."
Varnedoe recently published his
book, "Called To Excellence:
Redefining Success in the
Marketplace."
The story line is also pretty
simple: Varnedoe was ambitious:
and successful businessman at age
34 with the whole package: the
lovely wife, the nice home, the:
four children. But at that very
successful point in life, this driven
man didn't know where he was
headed.
Now 69, Varnedee writes about
what happened to him and his
career when his allegiance to God
brought him to a better
appreciation of Christian values
and service.
"It didn't happen all at once, and
he admits that he's never done it
perfectly, but he feels his story
may help others to serve God
better," Early said.
"He tells how he trained himself
to focus first on God and then on
his family, his employees and
others with whom he had daily
contact," Early said. "He didn't
lose his business priorities but he
re-arranged a few."
Early, Pastor Larry D. Neal and
all the men at First Presbyterian
Church cordially invite others in
community to join them for


Vaughan Early says it's pretty
simple: you show up at First
Presbyterian Chutch on Saturday
at 8 a.m. and you are served a
fantastic breakfast by David
Culpepper, known for his culinary
talents.
Then, while in the company of
other "fine men in the
community," you listen to Heeth
Varnedoe--the former CEO for
Flowers Industries in Thomasville,
Ga.
"We want all the men in the


black ties. They sang about how
wonderful I am. Now I have to
believe my grandsons, don't I?
They did another selection and I
was invited to dance with them. 1
might not want to admit I am 60,
but that exercise proved it.
Other friends brought talent to
perform as gifts in my honor and as
I had requested. Brian Johnson
from Keaton beach, played the
piano; Rinda Denson, youth leader
at our church played the flute.
Rinda's flute playing had us all
humming along with her-- it was
beautiful.
Morgan Cribbs kept the hau
hoop swirling for more time that
you can believe. Diane Richey of
Leisure Retreats read an acrostic
with wonderful adjectives
representing the letters of my
name. She also sang with me as I
played the piano and sang.
Our pianist from Bluecreek,
Annette Land, sang and
accompanied our rendition of
"How Great thou Art." Suzanne
Bassett, from Perry, played a
beautiful praise song on her flute.
It was so beautiful the crowd was
singing along with her before she


finished her number. Shelia and
Johnny Blue, from Dekle Beach,
wrote and sang a song especially
for me, to the tune of "Sixteen
Candles." Of course, you can
guess how many candles they did
mention?!?
Nancy Bell, who jointly owns a
horne and vacations at Cedar
Island, presented me with a
summary of all our bridge club
mementos, and even wore one of
our bridge retreat T-shirts with our
emblem logo "1 Delta Club"
slightly faded on the front. It was
amazing to see that old t- shirt
again, and the more amazing the
was that Nancy was able to model
it after 20 years. Arica Land
played the piano. Juliana Miles
twirled the baton. And last, and
maybe even the youngest to
perform, Adyn Cribbs ( star and
winner of "America's Funniest
Home Videos") sang "Jesus Loves
Me."
In my Gunily it was custom for
me to design and build .a paper
mache pinata for my children's and
grandchildren's birthdays. Yet
this time my grandsons made one
for me. What a hoot that was!


They designed a hot air balloon
pinata, and filled it with all kinds
of "Nana" supplies. I was the only
one getting to whack at it and I
believe there could have been
severe opposition had I not finally
beat my way into the booty. As the
title suggests, it was my Birthday
and I did try to keep up with liin
talent and joy of my friends and
family. I truly can say a good time
was had by all.

"We Are In His Care"
When burdens seem unbearable
and life appears unfair;
We must remember God knows
all and we are in his care.
He never gives more than we
can bear though sometimes it
seems so, but desperation and
distress ivill all eventually go.


So ifwe place our trust in God to
ease our weary day, and put the
sunshine back in our life, the
clouds will go away.
No life is ever free of pain or
troubles and despair;
We must remember God knows
all and keeps us in his care.

Every year, as the calendar smiles at Feb.
14, unlikely rnen can be seen ambling up
and down the streets of Perry, carrying
roses, red beribboned gift bags and boxes
of chocolate.
11 is a sight to behold. .
I always want to stop and talk with
them--each one of them. I'm curious
about \\:hat's in the bag, how they thought
of it, and if I'd approve.
Invariably, these mey will lament that
they can't find a card which delivers the
sessessemessese.
Write your own," I always suggest with
enthusiasm, and that deer-in-the-
headlights look suddenly finds its way to
their faces.
H rite my own?' each will relf6tistick td^
me, as froth gathers in the corners of his
Inouth.
I get the sense that writing down
personal sentiments is more difficult than
saying, in the presence of an ordained
minister, "I do."
So as students leap into Florida Writes
or FCAT Writing tests, I want to help their
fathers. Get your pen out and take notes.
If you look like Tom Cruise, you don't
really have to say anything. But if you
can't replicate his looks, you might want
to take a line out of the movie, "Jerry
Maguire." In the quiet of the moment with
the confidence that good looks and
several million dollars can bring, say to
her, "I need you....you complete me."
And let that sentence hang in the air.
In the thickness of the moment.
You'll be in the wife's good graces until
Easter. And she will tell you, "You had me
at hello."
Then enjoy your evening.
As trite as "Roses are red" verses can be,
women adrnire creativity and the fact that
you cared enough to send your very best.
They will keep your verse in a shoebox
along with that first anniversary card yott
remembered to send (hopefully, for the
first anniversary). *
If you've been married for a thousand
years, and you need to find a reason to
celebrate--in addition to precious, undying
love--why don't you tweak the verse:
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
We're nol dead,
And no bills are due.
She will laugh and remember why she
married you. (By the way, that's
important. Really important.)
if you prefer a frivolous version of
violence, which is only suggested because
C upid himself never left the house
without a bow and arrow, I recommend a

Dear Editor:
A couple of days ago 1 made one
of my fairly frequent trips to
Tallahassee. I notice that my gas
tank was kind of low, and
considered filling up before I hit
the roud. Ilowever, I saw that the
average price per gallon for regular
here in Perry was $2.99.9, and
decided to wait until I got to Leon
County.
Sure enough, the price per
gallon for regular up there was
am a c.n m e.ns,., soon
cheaper than here in Perry.
Now, that isn't :< .11. unusual;


any anyone who travels up that
way can verify. In fact, over the
years, I've never seen the price in
Tallahassee, per gallon, to be less
' than five or six cents cheaper than
here in Taylor County. .
Believe it or not, a few weeks
ago I was up there and the gas was
actually 15 cents a gallon less than
, here in Perry.
Now that id ridiculous, and I
challenge anyone to give me a
credible explanation. I doubt very
ns.. it any of our "wise ones"
could do it with a straight face.
With the national fuel situation


in such a frightening state to begin
with, I think it's criminal that local
governments would allow
something so disgraceful to exist. :
I'm amazed that people haven't
rebelled long before this.
Surely there must be some
agency here in our Taylor County
government with the authority to
do something positive about this.
If there is, I would like to ask .
them that old question, "Are you..
working toward a solution, or are .
you part of the problem?"
Most sincerely,
John D. Alexander


By SUSAN H. LINCOLN


chocolate-covered "gun" (not the real
thing, please) and a mask. Your card or t-
shirt should read, "Give me your heart -
and nobody will get hurt."
Think about what you might tell me, or
a total stranger, about your Valentine.
Sometimes it's easier to tell a woman who
has no stake in your marriage, about the
woman who keeps your marriage afloat.
Over fried chicken at the Kiwanis Club
recently, one Kiwanian said to me, "I can't
imagine my life without her," when
seasomswee.
Trust me, you don't need to pay any
greeting card manufacturer $4.75, if you
can come up with an endorsement like
that.. .. amon a
""Wfive"itW6wn. Suddenly, you're a poet
and your wife falls in love with you all
over again.
You can always resort to lines first
penned by Elizabeth Barrett Browning (tell
her that you've been reading poetry in
your spare time): "How do Ilove you? Let
me count the ways...." I suggest a
legal sheet of paper for this, and you'd
better make the list long. Include the
laundry, the names of each of the kids,
and all the plants which survive at her
mercy alone. .
Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman
are for the glamourous romantics among
us, who swoon in black-and-white. Rent
the movie and remind your Valentine ink
your script, "We'll always have Paris."
Of course, if you've never been to Paris,
you could say, with a French accent: "We'll
.
always have Perry," though it might not
have the same effect.
Doesn't matter; she'll love you, although
she may wonder if you've-been drinking.
If she loves "Sleepless in Seattle," you
must reference "An Affair to Remember"
and cause her to ponder your likeness to
Cary Grant.
Do not do your "Judy, Judy, Judy"
imitation.
Or use this quotation (by Sven Bano):
"Love that is true never grows. old." It
sounds so 'simple, you can say it was
original.
Just sign your name to it.
Flash your best smile.
And no matter what else you do, don't
ask something stupid like, "Did you forget
to get the dog's flea medicine?"
It's a touchy week. Get out there and do
something touchy, or February (which is
already longer by a day this year) will be a
treacherous month to navigate.
Go ahead.
You can do it.
I know you can.

Dear Editor:
I have lived in Perry for 12
years. I have been a patient of
Doctors' Memorial Hospital a
number of times.
I have had tests of all kinds, been
to the ER, ICU, outpatient surgery
and on three occasions have spent
at least a week in the hospital as a


patient. I have had five surgeries at
the hospital; four by Dr. Nelson
and one by Dr. Thornberry. All
were successful.
Only on two occasions have 1
had any problems and these were
cleared up immediately. The
service has always been good, the
staff friendly and the food good. I


am so thanklill for Dr. Nelson and
Dr. Mobummed. We are very
fortunate to have them.
I hope and pray the people of
Perry and the other physicians will
get behind our hospital and support
it, rather than criticize it. We all
can't he perfect.
