Both lanes of Highway 98 West were blocked for nearly two hours
Monday morning following a two-vehicle crash that left one man in
serious condition.
Matthew L. Stride, 23, of Lake City was traveling west on U.S. 98
when a semi-truck and trailer loaded with rock driven by Chancie L.
Teeples, 48, of McAlpin pulled into his path from C.R. 14-A.
Soride's 1987 Chevrolet truck, which was pulling a boat and trailer, hit
the left side of the semi-trailer at the rear axle, Florida Highway Patrol
Trooper Manuel Smyrnios said.
The pick-truck became wedged in the undercarriage of the trailer and
Taylor County Fire-Rescue had to use the "Jaws of Life" to extricate the
driver.
"It was a mangled mess. The pick-up truck was crammed underneath
the trailer all the way up to its windshield. Once the driver was
removed, we were unable to separate the vehicles and had to wait until a

mend but 'not


Out of the woods'


Monday's workshop between the Doctors' Memorial Hospital Board of Directors and Taylor
County Commission drew several dozen people to the hospital's Windows Cafe. Among those
shown above are Perry City Councilman Alphonso Dowdell, Jerry Smithwick with
Congressman Allen Boyd's office and Bill Williams, Gulf County Commissioner and chairman
of Boyd's regional health council.


While the most recent update
from Doctors' Memorial Hospital
(DMH) Monday night was
decidedly more positive than in
recent months, officials were quick
to warn that the facility is "not out
of the woods yet."
The news came during a two-
hour workshop between the DMH
board of directors and the Taylor
County Commission.
According tq CEO Charles
Darcushe finalicials improved in
December with the hospital
breaking even for the month. In
January, the news was even better,
with a $118,000 net profit.
This is markedly better than the
news from October and November,
, with both months reporting a mdre
than $400,000 net loss.
Those losses prompted hospital
officials to ask the county for a
$500,000 bail-out, a request the
county denied last month citing its
own financial concerns.
Darcy credited the improved
numbers to an increase in
admissions (as the hospital enters
its traditionally busy season) as
well as a number of cost-saving
initiatives taken in recent months.
While census levels of
admissions in October and
November were just about 10 per
day, that number has risen in the
last several weeks to the point it
has surpassed 30 on a number of
occasions.
He also outlined the hospital's
ongoing re-organizational efforts,
including recent staff reductions of
28 employees between layoffs and
"voluntary resignations."
Many of the efforts were issues
Darcy had already addressed at
previous meetings between the
boards, including an across-the-
board 10 percent cut in hours, the


elimination of overtime,
outsourcing staff including
AirMedic One personnel and re-
negotiating contracts.
Additionally, he said for the
hospital to turn around its
situation, the facility needs to
continue physician recruitment,
especially for a second surgeon,
promote the DMH Foundation for
personal and corporate donations,
move toward achieving a critical
access hospital degignation' and
establish a sustainable revenue
stream.
If DMH was designated a
critical access hospital, it
would change how certain
reimbursements would be handled,
to the betterment of the hospital,
Darcy said. The hospital will soon
begin a feasibility study to see if
such a designation would in fact
benefit the hospital.
Commissioners had several
questions and comments
following his presentation, but
Commissioner Malcolm Page
steered much of the discussion
with a number of proposals he felt
the county could consider to help
the hospital.
First, he suggested that he
"would not be opposed" to the
county paying the hospital's
electric bill, on which the county is
listed along with the hospital. The
bill currently totals approximately
$120,000. He added that once the
bill was paid in full, he wanted to
see the county taken off the
account.
Second, he suggested using
excess sales tax money (collected
from the one-cent tax currently
levied to cover the cost of the
hospital building) to pay off the

A Taylor Correctional Institute
officer was arrested Friday for
soliciting a 15-jeear-old girl for
sex.
Robert William McGuire, 24, of
Tallahassee, surrendered himself at
.the Leon County Jail and was
charged with a single count of
computer soliciting enticement of
a child, a third-degree felony. His
bonA was set at $2,500.
The arrest stemmed from an on-
line chat between McGuire (who is
formerly of Perry) and someone he
believed to be a 15-year-old girl.
During their on-line exchanges,
McGuire allegedly used sexually
explicit language and suggested
that the two meet for sex. The
person he was chatting with was
actually an undercover FDLE
agent.
The on-line contact began in
October 2007 during "Operation
Traveling' Man," a multi-agency
Imtlative created to target Internet
sexual predators who infiltrate chat


rooms for the .purpose of meeting


with their underage children.


evolution is presented as one of
several theories as to how the
universe was formed.
Tuesday's decision by the state
board, did not go that far, although
that was one of the options.
Instead, the board chose in a 4-3
vote to adopt an option that adds
the phrase "scientific theory of" in
numerous places throughout the
new curriculum, including the
.sections on evolution.
Taylor County Superintendent
Oscar M. Howard Jr. and School
Board Member Danny Lundy were
both present in Tallahassee for the
hearing and both praised the
decision to add the phrase.
"I think it is a real victory for
education in the state of Florida,"
Howard said. "I want to publicly
thank those that stood up and
spoke out."
** Please see page 5


In a split decision, the State
Board of Education on Tuesday
voted to adopt a new set of science
standards for Florida's schools, but
included a last minute revision that
adds the phrase "the scientific
theory" in front of the word
evointion.
The new science standards,
which haven't been updated since
1996, sparked controversy around
the state by calling evolution "the
fundamental concept underlying
all of biology...supported by
multiple forms of scientific
evidence." '
The Taylor County District
School Board in November
unanimously passed a resolution
opposing the new language. The
board urged the State Board of
Education to direct the Florida
Department of Education to
"reviseledit the new Sunshine
State Standards for Science so that

Florida\ chief stakeholders along :
the Apalachicola.River.
The coalition meets reguhErly
and hopes to gam recognition from
the state of Florida so that: its
members-as Florida's
stakeholders-can offer their input
in the state's negotiations with
Georgia and Alabama.
"There is no one better, to:
describe the plight of th6
communities that depend on -the
Apalachicola River and Bay thair
one of our leading stakeholdersion
the Riparian Coalition," Boyd'
stated. "Those of us in North
Florida are committed to makifig
sure that Florida's resources'ary
protected. After years of disputes;
I am eager to come together with
our neighbors to develop
aam r nta lu st tWe
not find ourselves in this difflcu
and damaging situation year after
year."


Congressman Allen Boyd has
succeeded in his efforts to push for
Congress to examine the
Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint
(ACF) water sharing issue.
After many conversations with
his colleagues in the House of
Representatives and persistent
calls for a congressional hearing,
Congressman Boyd announced
that the Subcommittee on Water
Resources and Environment of the
House Transportation and
Infrastructure Committee will hold
a hearing on March 11 to discuss
the drought in the southeast and its
effects on the ACF system.
"I am hopeful that a
congressional hearing will allow
us to thoroughly examine this
complex issue, so that our findings
:so it"it':s""" """nadvancel the
states," said Boyd.
"For almost 20 years, the ACF
water sharing disagreements have


presented numerous challenges on
the local, state and federal levels.
In order for us to successfully and
responsibly address this issue, we
must look at the big picture and
tackle both our short term and long
term problems.'
Boyd has been asked to select an
ACF expert to testify at the
congressional hearing. To make
sure that the concerns of Florida's
stakeholders are considered,
Congressman Boyd will reach out
to the Riparian County
Stakeholder Coalition to designate
a representative to testify before
Congress.
The Riparian County
Stakeholder Coalition was formed
late last year so that Florida's
stakeholders could be a strong and

workmanship would be superior.
I now wonder if that globe wash
manufactured in one of the smeared
countries--somewhere between Europg
and Australia--and what does that sa
about national pride?
I didn't want to be completely
disrespectful, but I was waiting
resolutely to hear Mother's solution tg
this international problem. -1
And I learned something verg
important about her that day.' issi
"Just turn it around to the side thai
looks the .best, and learn all thosE
countries. When you know their rJan
I'll buy you another globe that goes
degrees."
I remember being speechless, but do
too impressed at age 9 or 10. This wa
a gift, and therefore should be perfect
and how could she just leave me wit
my world in shambles? Now, as th
world turns, I'm remarkably impressed
with her solution, because she probab1
al which
got that globe at a half-price s e,
truly underscores the long-held beli
that you get what you pay for: in thi$
case, only half the world.
At my young age, I still had to wonder
what good is a globe if you can't adraid
the roundness of it? Shouldn't I jus'
have a flat map or somet g.
I didn't feel like learning the names c
the countries that day, or the next. 1
often.wondered, however, about thtTsq
smeared countries, and I think I had 4
deeper desire to clear .up my blurred
impression of this part of the world. 5
Even now when I see a globe, I take E
hard right at the continent of Africa and
try to find out, Columbus, what's on the
Other side. Yes, while the rest of :thii
world's geologists worry about shifting
tectonic plates, I look for delineations
between the continents of Asia ang
Australia.
I want to know if the globe factories a
today are focused on quality control sli
there's not a widespread problerti
smearing the young minds of today. El
For that would be a widespread
problem of global proportions, and 8
can't have it.
Not on my watch, Carmen Sandiego.


As I stared intently at the globe in the
corner of the room, I disappeared
through the Bermuda Triangle into a
place--some 40 years removed--where
my whole orbit was contained in a small
Alabama town. '.
There, I remembered well the.
Christmas that my mother presented
me with my own world globe--an
educational gift amongst a inyriad jof
dolls and board games, markers and
candy canes.
The globe came securely nestled in a
cardboard box with the most important
continent--that being North America--
positioned front and center, probably as
a marketing ploy. Little plastic tethers
prevented continental drift while the
packaging told of the globe's value in
school and at home. F even remember
that the cardboard box was blue and
white; some things are still as clear as
the Aegean Sea.
7 mother had been an elementary
school teacher and often confessed that
social studies was her favorite topic.
She traveled a bit before she met and
married my father who thought home
was the finest place on earth. I
wondered if the globe didn't remind her
of the world she knew, before she
settled down.
With scissors and enthusiasm, we cut
the ties which bound the globe and
released it for our enjoyment.
Yes, there's North America, South
America, and there's Europe and Africa,
and there's a bit of Asia, sort of, but
what in the world happened to most of
it and Australia, too?
Those countries, it seems, fell prey to
a printing problem at the globe factory.
The ink and lettering w7ere smeared so
that the continental lines, along with
lon itude and latitude looked like a
spiked display monitor in a critically ill
patient's room.
"Ohmigosh," I said, having never seen
the world in such disarray.
"Well, have you ever?" said my mother,
who had proudly made the purchase
long before Christmas and carelessly
threw the rece t awa assuming--as
everyone did in the 1950s--that the

am his own.
