With less than three weeks until
FCAT testing begins, state
education officials have notified
the Taylor County School District
that they will see their promised'
state funding cut some $250,000.
The size of the cut, as well as the
timing, has angered local officials.
Superintendent of Schools Oscar
M. Howard called the cuts a
"nightmare."
"A quarter of a million dollar cut
is devastating this time of year,"
Howard said. "It's devastating any
time' of year, but especially now

Taylor County students were
involved in an unexpected tornado
drill Tuesday when a phone call
about a reported tornado sent the
district into a lock-down.
According to Superintendent of
Schools Oscar M. Howard Jr., the
district received a phone call
shortly after noon Tuesday when a
tornado was reportedly sighted
.near Hampton Springs.
"We immediately took action
and contacted all the schools,"
Howard said.
Students remained in the drill
for 15-20 minutes until officials

man from


house fire.

A 33-year-old Perry man was
rescued from a house fire that
occurred around midnight
Saturday, Feb. 23, on U.S.
Highway 98 West.
Willie Bodiford sustained minor
bums on his back and was taken to
Doctors' Memorial Hospital for
treatment.
Local officers responding to the
fire pulled Bodiford from the
burning home.
Perry Police Department (PPD)
Ptl. Garrett Campbell related in his
report that, "Upon arrival I
observed-that the house was
almost c>,:,i?fptel\ engulfed. After
getting closer to the home, Deputy
Sc6tt McKenzie advised that he
heard a person on the west side of
the house."
Walking around to the backside
of the home, Campbell observed
an arm reaching out of a bedroom
window and heard someone
screaming for help.
"We pulled the subject out of the
window and I pulled him away
from the house to a safe distance,"
Campbell said. Assisting with the
rescue were police officers Dave
Gorby and Jimmy Cash.
The man initially told police that
his son was still inside the burning
home, but as they began trying to
find a way in to search for the boy,
the man advised that his son was
staying at his mother's house that

DMH staff commended for their care


Dear Editor:
I would like to take a minute and
commend Doctors' Memorial,
Hospital (the doctors, nurses and
entire staff) for their fast response
and professional assistance and
care for me, while I was in need of
immediate medical help.
I first went to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital .n a Sunday
and stayed in the emergency room
for nine and a half hours with


breathing treatments administered
while' the doctor assigned EKG
hook-up and oxygen hook-up.
After all that, I was still having
breathing difficulty.
A nurse came in the room,
washed his hands and I asked who
he was, and he said, "I'm your
worst nightmare." Then he left
without saying another word. A
doctor. then came ini, and was
called out again telling me he'd "be


right back." An hour or so later,
he returned and released me,
despite my continued breathing
difficulty. The "worst nightmare"
nurse gave me the notice of
release, at which point, I removed
all the EKG and oxygen hook-ups,
grabbed my belongings and said,
"I can't breathe and I've got to get
some help."
The nurse closed the door,
blocking my exit and told me I
could go halfway home, and if I
got worse, I could return to the ER
again and might get another doctor
who would re-admit me.
I stated, "I'm going to Perry; I've
got to get some help."
And I did.
Joyce called while we were
enroute, and when I arrived at
Doctors', Memorial Hospital at
5:30 a.m., they were quick to
respond and available to help me.
Immediately, I was put on life
support and treatment started
within minutes of my entry. I was
immediately admitted even though
the hospital was almost filled with
patients.
The fast response and
professionalism of all the staff
(from the janitor to the top doctor)
was supreme.
I have the utmost appreciation of
all those who assisted me (lots of
names) and I just want to state this
to all of them--and I do mean all of
them: thank you for helping me
and treating me so professionally.
I will always be grateful.

Goldilocks traveled deep into the
Forest Capital of the South alongside
her husband of many years.
She noticed that the Japanese
Magnolia trees were blooming, except
for those blooms which had been
slapped by an unexpected freeze.
She noticed the red maple trees were
blooming.
She noticed. the redbud trees were
blooming.
And she also noticed the blooming
wild plum branches in native areas,
against a backdrop of blue skies and
bright sunshine.
"What a beautiful time of year," said
Goldilocks during their walk in the
woods.
The husband, it seemed, noticed
different attractions deep in the forest:
wild turkeys calling his name, birds of
all descriptions singing at dawn, proud
eagles circling above him and deer
marking the end of hunting season by
strutting their eight-point selves against
the horizon.
In their travels in and out of the forest,
Goldilocks and the husband had shared
their many sightings but rarely
expressed any delight over the retail
fringes of the forest.
Until one day, in a clearing at the
intersection of Highway 27 and 19,
when they both saw a boat.
"I want that boat," the husband said
with calculated phrasing and a deep
longing in his voice.
Goldilocks looked carefully at the boat
which was painted with a distinctive
camouflage pattern. Otherwise, she
noticed nothing spectacular about it.
"What's so special about that boat?"
she asked the husband.
He shot her a look which bordered on
too harsh. Then he looked at her again,
wondering if the explanation was worth
the effort.
"Just where you can go in it," he said
thoughtfully, although she found the
explanation to be rather elementary, my.
dear.
"Well, you have two boats," she
reminded, in case he had forgotten, but

she resisted saying, 'and dhey both go fir
the water."
Instead, she said nothing, an*d-
wondered what porridge they might et
that night: too hot or too cold:. c.
It was the nothingness which prodded
him to explain further.
The explanation went something like
this, my children:
"Sometimes my big boat is too big,
and at other times, my little boat is too
little."
Goldilocks hated sounding like the
wicked old witch, but she wondered
aloud, "And just how many boats should
one man in the forest have?"
"Yeah," the husband said, recognizing
that she was too mean but accurate in
reminding him that he was not Donald
Trump.
"The seats on my john boat didn'T-
bother me 20 years ago, but they've
gotten harder in the last few years, and |
it will almost kill you to sit in that thing
all day."
So the little boat is too hard, and could j
cause great physical discomfort. .
He continued, "But my other boat's tQp
big to put into many of the rivers where
I fish."
"So the big boat is too big," she
repeated, beginning to get the picture.
She didn't have to wonder mu'h@
longer, what the moral to this story
might be. She blurted it out as if she
was on Wheel of Fortune.
"But let me guess," she said. "This
boat is justttt righgggt."
And she was too right.
Which is probably too bad for the
husband, unless he wins it from the
Optimist. Club in Perry which fs
currently selling $ 5 chances on this b0oat
as part of its annual saltwater fishing
tournament.' It is a 16-foot Xpress all-
welded aluminum bdat with a center .
console and a 25 horsepower Yamaha

Someone, surely, will live happily ever
after, deep in the Forest Capital of the
South, with this boat that is not too big, Z
not too little, but justttt rigggghhht. Will
it be you?

Ho1w-ard said. "According to what
I've been told, we accomplished
the exercise in about three
minutes."
Taylor County Director of
Public Safety Jeff Manning
said that the Taylor County


Sheriffs Office and Emergency
Management Coordinator Brenda
Freund investigated the area
and found no evidence
that a tornado in fact had touched
down.
"Thank God it wasn't a
tornado," Howard said. "I'd rather
we do it 100 times than to sit here
once and have it hit."


$250,000 CUT
Continued from page 1
"I don't have a real answer to a
budget reduction this time of year
except that we've got to do it,"
Howard said.
Compounding the district's
problem is that $500,000 of its
money is still locked in the
State Board of Administration
Local Government Investment
Pool.-
Like local governments across,
the state, the district is still not sure


when or if it will regain access to
those funds.
"We have a small contingency
fund that we're trying to protect,
but that may be next," Howard
said. Despite the cuts, he added
that the school district will
continue to educate Taylor
County's students.
"We've lived through its before,
and we'll live through it again,
somehow. Public education is the
key to the future of not only Taylor
County but the entire country and
we'll continue to provide it."


The Perry-Taylor County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors recognized State
Representative Will Kendrick during Friday night's celebration. Shown above with Kendrick
and his wife, Connie (right), are ChamberDirector Dawn Taylor and Chamber Board Chairman

Middle school off


to 4-1 start in'08.


The Taylor County Middle
School baseball team kicked off
its season two weeks ago and got
off to a hot start going 4-0.
The Bulldogs beat Aucilla
Christian twice, 5-4 and 14-4,
Hamilton 10-0 and Live Oak 5-3
before losing in a heartbreaker
Monday night 6-5 to Wakulla
Riversprings.
The team will play a 18 game
schedule this year. Also, for the
second time, this year's middle
school team will play in a
conference. The conference
includes Lake City Middle,
Madison, Live Oak and Lake City
Richardson.
At the end of the season the
teams will play in a conference
tournament to see who has the
right to represent the conference
against the winner of the
Jacksonville area conference.
This year's team will have to
rebuild after losing 14 8th graders
from last year's team. One of the
8th graders is now a varsity player
on the high school baseball team
while the rest are on the junior
varsity, so there will be big shoes
to fill.
"No doubt we've got our work
cut out for us. We only have two
returning starters from, last year's
team. So far I like what I've seen.


These young men are working
hard and show an eagerness to
learn," says first year head coach,,
Jonathan Mauk. "
Mauk said his team's goal is to
win the first ever conference
championship.
"We need for some players to
step up and as a team we'll need to :
improve each week. It should be a
exciting year for the middle school
baseball program," he said.
The baseball team has two
returning 8th graders -- Eli
Grambling and Jalan Jackson.
"This is a close group of young
men who practice hard and have.
fun being around each other. It's
fun working with the guys getting
them prepared for the upcoming -
season," ,says assistant coach
Logan Guest.
The 2008 TCMS team is made
of 8th graders Jalan Jackson, Brion
Scott, Eli Grambling, Will Tuteri,

BEFORE AND AFTER

Bobby Fincher came to Marshall Health and Rehab after
having a stroke. He did not have any insurance or any help
and MHRC was able to look past that and assist him when he
needed it most. "First Class" is what he stated when asked to
describe the facility and the help. A resident of Apalachicola,
Bobby came to Marshall Health and Rehabilitation Center
Oct., 2007. Upon entering into the building he was unable to
communicate, unable to dress, walk or even get up, without
total care from the staff at the facility.


Bobby Fincher


Bobby says, "It was the entire staff of Marshall Health and Rehabilitation Center
who gave me the willpower and drive to better myself. The rehab department is
excellent and now I can walk, talk, get dressed and I am looking forward to going
home in about a month."

TCMS on tour
Seventh and eighth grade Taylor County Middle School students from Sabrina Guenthner's Career Education' Class recently
toured North Florida Community College in Madison. Students were given a guided tour of the campus and introduced to the
programs the community college provides. Students "'liked the ideas of dual enrollment, the convenient campus layout and class
size. Instructors that were approachable and knowledgeable made an impression on these students," Guenthner said. The ;
students also visited Taylor Technical Institute and will tour FSU. "The purpose of these tours is to give students exposure to
post secondary options that are available locally; enabling them to achieve what they want as a career," Guenthner noted.

With Woody Guthrie


Take a musical journey


North Florida Community
College is preparing for a night of
dance, music and fun as it
welcomes Vanaver Caravan's
performance of "Pastures of
Plenty: A Tribute to Woody
Guthrie in Dance and Music" to
the Van H. Priest Auditorium stage
Thursday, March 6, at 7 p.m.


"Pastures of Plenty" is inspired
by the "father of the American
folksong revival," Woody Guthrie
(1912-1967).
Hear the instruments and
musical styles of Woody's
America: "Old Timey" and
bluegrass banjo; Carter Family
style autoharp and harmonies;


Southern, Western and New
England style fiddling; along with
Leadbelly's 12 string guitar style.
The performance is funded in
part by a grant from the Southern
Arts Federation in partnership with
the National Endowment for the
Arts and the Florida Division of
Cultural Affairs.
