than they had first thought.
Manning said.
On Keaton Beach Dri\e. the

into the back canal, leaving it half

The worst damage, however,
was sustained on Marina Road,
where one home was completely
destroyed, with debris spread
across a wide section of the
roadway and neighboring
marshland.
Furniture and appliances lay


upon the ground buried in
remnants of walls and floors. The
tornado left only a few interior
walls still standing upon the
structure's pilings. The owner of
the home, a doctor from Valdosta,
Ga., was not present at the time.
Former Taylor County High


Head Football Coach Elmer Coker,
who lives on Marina Drive, about
100 yards south of the path of
Friday's tornado, said he began
listening to the approaching storm
from his back porch after tornado
watch reports were issued.
"It was so loud with the hard rain


and thunder, that I didn't hear it
(the. tornado) coming," he said.
"But I heard it as it left the area. It
sounded just like a train."
Rains continued to fall
throughout the morning, making
the work for power crews a wet
endeavor while they removed


downed lines and replaced
damaged poles.
While the storm knocked out
power to some 150 homes,

To proposed coastal development



Pruitt seeks to resolve state's objections


Members of the development
team for The Reserve at
Sweetwater Estuary will be
Bveting with state officials this
week in Tallahassee to try and

apprjsed for the past two months
by the Suwannee River Water
Management District (SRWMD)

Cbd6iiiunity Affairs (DCA)

:":The item did not appear on


SRWMD's March agenda and
Beverly Birkitt, environmental
expert for the project, said they
have now been granted an
extension.
In a Feb. 1 letter from DCA
Secretary Tom Pelham, the district
was told that DCA had.determined
that the permit application was
inconsistent 'with the department's
statutory authorities which are
included in the Florida Coastal
Management Program.
"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.
Birkitt said this week that her
team remains optimistic that the
problems can be resolved.
"They (DCA) think we don't
comply with the Coastal Zone
Management Act. We believe we
do," she said.
She said this week's meeting will
include Pelham as well as several
,other DCA staff members:

9 nabbed in drug sweep


An intensive four-hour blitz
netted nine arrests on drug charges
Wednesday, March 5, -in a high

The Taylor County Joint Drug

kilos of cocaine, 156 pounds of
marijuana, 856 marijuana plants,
670 grams of methamphetamine,
908 grams of crack, hundreds of

form)," Taylor County Sheriffs
Office Capt. Ron Rice said.
Arrested and booked at the

PPD launches investigation



into counterfeit $100 bills


Between 10 and 12 counterfeit
$100 bills have been passed at a
number of local businesses and the
Perry Police Department is
advising retailers and clerks to "be
alert."
Reports of the fake money first
surfaced March 5 when a bank
clerk discovered a counterfeit bill
in a store deposit.
"Our investigation has revealed
that the unknown suspects have
been making low dollar purchases
with high dollar bills. There are at
least three suspects involved in
passing counterfeit bills," PPD
Captain Jamie Cruse said Tuesday.
The bogus bills have been
passed at 10 local businesses to
date, ranging from the Taylor
County Health Department to the
Tax Collector's Office.
"If you someone pays you with a
$100 bill you suspect is a fake, you


can ask them for another form of
payment or ask to see another bill..
You may also tell them the bill is
counterfeit, keep it and call the
police if you are within the city
limits. If you are in the county,
contact the sheriffs office," Cruse
said.
Tips in authenticating bills
include:
Watermark: The 1996 and 2004
style bills have a watermark (a
faint image similar to the portrait,
that is visible from either side
when held up to a light source).
Color-Shifting Ink: The 1996
styles bills have color-shifting ink
in the lower right-hand corner, that
shifts from green the black as the
note is tilted 45 degrees, the 2004
bills have color-shifting ink that
shifts from copper to green as the
note is tilted 45 degrees.
Security Thread: Genuine bills


have a clear polyester thread
embedded vertically in the paper.
The thread is inscribed with the
denomination of the note, and is
visible only when held up to light.
Each denomination has a unique
thread position and will glow a
unique color in UV light.
Additional information about
security marks on bills can
be found on-line at the Web site
www.secretservice.gov or www.
moneyfactory.gov.
Banking institutions and
investigators may access the site
www.usdollars.usss.gov.
"One of the most common forms
of counterfeiting creates fake bills
using an ink jet printer. An
indicator of these fake bills is that
an ink jet printer makes copies by
spraying tiny colored dots onto

A book for the suitcase
Candidates for the State Jr. Miss title attended a book signing for Susan H. Lincoln, held at the Taylor County Public Library
during the week prior to the March 1 Floria Jr. Miss program. Lincoln presented autographed copies of.her new book, "When
Mimosas Bloom," to each of the contestants for their return trip home. On that Saturday, Miss Ka~yla Loveday, third from left,
was named the 2008 Florida Jr. Miss with a .story that could be the topic for a best seller. Loveday, 18, was actually runner-
up:in the St. Johns Jr. Miss program, but an ACL injury forced the winner to withdraw from state competition. In early
February, Loveday found out that she'd be representing her county; "it was a "dream come true," she said. That dream-come-
true was accompanied by a total of $3250 in scholarship money and a place in the national competition which will be held June
26-28 in Mobile, Ala., where Loveday will compete with representatives from all 50 states.

groups.
. "Some low income workers and
those who get Social Security,
certain veteran payments or
railroad retirement benefits, may
qualify for stimulus payments this
year from the federal government,"
said Peggy Williams, coordinator

additional, money for each

Williams said individuals who
might not otherwise be required to
file a 2007 income tax return will
need to do so in order to receive
the payments. "The return must
show $3000 in qualifying income,"
she said, "and that can be Social

There was no escape for desperate criminals caught in a shoot-out with
law enforcement officers at Dorsett Stadium Thursday night...they were
surrounded by some of the best K-9 teams in the south.
The staged shoot-out was part of the annual K-9 demonstration held in
conjunction with the week-long K-9 Training & Problem Solving
Workshop hosted by American Aluminum Accessories, Inc.
Cloudy skies didn't deter hundreds from gathering at Dorsett Stadium to
watch the demonstration, which included crime scenarios ranging from a
street mugging to a search for deadly explosives.
The grand finale came when an FWC helicopter landed on the field and
released a K-9 which dashed across the green and took down an armed
gunman.
Other demonstrations included exercises in obedience and agility.
Prior to the Thursday night show, the K-9 teams---more 'than 100 in
all--took part in a schedule of rigorous training and certification events.
Workshop coordinator was Master Deputy Kevin Lindstadt of St. Lucie
County Sheriffs Office who is also a trainer with the North American
Police Work Dog Association.
Master Trainers were Ben Beninett (Virginia), Jim Watson (Ohio), Oscar
Hall (Oklahoma), Brian Woods (Ohio), Matt Hall (Florida), John Hoover
(Virginia), John Brannon (Pennsylvania), Joe Rosenau (Illinois), Jeanne
Frost (Wisconsin), Doc Mackenzie (New York). and Neil Raymond
(Maine).
Additional trainers were: Gary Garrison (Pennsylvania), Rusty Jones
(North Carolina), Billy Lancaster (Georgia), Susan Freyer (Georgia) and
Joey Lutkowski (Pennsylvania). Suiting up as decoys were Rob Katach
(Pennsylvania) and Laz Rodriquez (Florida).
Assisting the master trainers were Carmen Kentala and Christine Davis
along with FWC instructors Officer Cricket Bailey, Officer Ros Welborn,
Officer John Snow and Officer Wayne Hargabus.
Teams were dispatched to a number of training venues set up around
Perry, including the old Swain's Family Restaurant, Forest Capital Hall,
Buckeye, Timberland Ford, the Old Depot, Thomas Chevrolet and the
former Doctors' Memorial Hospital.
Teams taking part in the workshop were:
Florida: Harper Gibson and K9 Kilo, Taylor County Sheriffs Office;
Chris Brunson and K9 Roscoe, Gene Pinner and K9 Rose, George Johnson
and K9 Mercy, Clay Wimberly and K9 Justice, Bryan Clark and K9
Liberty, Eric Sadler and K9 Amos, Taylor Correctional Institution; Clint
Ferguson and K9 Vader, Tommy Willcox and K9 Jet, Scott Bonafide and
K9 Blaze, Nigel Lowe and K9 Keno, Alachua County Sheriffs Office;

500,000 deaths avoided



by reduced cancer rates


"Copyrighted Material

A Syndicated Content .,* a


Available from Commercial News Providers"


By DAVID SAMPSON and
CLAIRE GREENWELL
American Cancer Society
The American Cancer Society's
annual cancer statistics report'finds
that death rates from cancer in the
United States have decreased by
18.4 percent among men and by
10.5 percent among women since
mortality rates began to decline in
the early 1990s, which translates to
the avoidance of more than half a
million cancer deaths (534,500) in
the United States.
Society epidemiologists predict
that in the U.S. in 2008 there will
be 1,437,180 new cancer cases
(745,180 in men and 692,000 in
women) and 565,650 cancer deaths
(294,120 among men and 271,530
among women).
The findings come from Cancer
Statistics 2008, published in the
March/April issue of CA: A
Cancer Journal for Clinicians, as
well as in the 57th edition of its
companion publication, Cancer
Facts & Figures 2008.
Despite a continuing decline in
the cancer death rate from 2004 to
2005, there was an increase of


5,424 deaths (559,312 cancer
deaths in 2005 compared to
553,888 cancer deaths in 2004).
This increase follows a decrease in
the number of cancer deaths in the
two previous years. The change is
largely due to a smaller decline in
the cancer death rate between 2004
and 2005 compared with that in the
two previous time periods. From
2004 to 2005, overall cancer
mortality dropped about 1 percent,
compared to a 2 percent drop from
both 2002 to 2003 and 2003 to
2004. With respect to the four
major cancer sites, colorectal
cancer death rates decreased by
about 3 percent from 2004 to 2005,
compared to about 6 percent from
2003 to 2004. The decrease in
death rates for cancers of the lung
and bronchus and prostate in men
and breast in women was also
smaller from 2004 to 2005 than
from 2003 to 2004. It is important
to understand that for the number
of cancer deaths to decrease, the
decline in the overall cancer
mortality rate must be large
enough to offset the increasing
numbers due to growth and aging


of the population.
"The increase in the number of
cancer deaths in 2005 after two
years of historic declines should.
not obscure the fact that cancer.
death rates continue to drop,
reflecting the enormous progress
that has been made against cancer-
during the past. 15 years." saidR
John R. Seffrin, Ph.D., American.
Cancer Society chief executive;:
officer. "While in 2005 the rate'.f
decline was not enough to overtake
other population factors, the faft.
remains that cancer mortality rates.
continue to drop, and they're doing:
so at a rate fast enough that oveta:
half million deaths from cancer
were averted between 1990/199I::
and 2004."
The -cancer incidence and:
mortality data were collected by
the Centers for Disease Control,
the National Cancer Institute, the
North American Association bf
Central Cancer Registries, state
and local health agencies, arid
thousands of cancer registrars
throughout the country. Since

I don't have Unlimited

Minutes


I don't know what it is about the last eight
minutes of the final t.v. show of the evening,
but I can't do it.
I just can't do it.
I miss them every time.
Having an admitted addiction to,. Law &
Order episodes is clearly debilitating. But
when you couple that with age issues, a
serious problem emerges.
I never know who did it, who was
prosecuted, or who escaped justice.
It's a wonder I can sleep.
I determined, in the name of scientific
research, that I would attempt to describe
those last few minutes of consciousness.
Perhaps you have visited that place, as well.
Typically, I'm in control of all my faculties
until 10:30 p.m.
But I find myself yawning.
Then I look at the clock and assure myself:
it's just 30 minutes..'.you can make it to the
end of this program. It's just 30 minutes.
I feel myself sinking into the sofa which
loves me best.
I pick myself back up a bit, yawn again and
blink several times.
None of that cures what is creeping up on
me like a shadow in a black-and-white
movie.
I find myself looking left and right, trying
to keep my faculties alert, for if Jack McCoy
can prevail, so should I.
I decide, clearly with impaired judgment,
that if I recline ever so slightly, I will be able
to coast to the end of this program.
It is now 10:38 p.m. "You can do this," I
repeat to myself.
My eyes are heavy, and lifting them up
with my eyebrows only helps temporarily.
So, with even more severely impaired.
judgment, I decide to shut them--just for a
moment, you understand.
And I can. It's a commercial; I can take a
short break.
I open them quickly so I'm not lulled into
complacency.
Then I shut them again, and it feels so
good--me in my cocoon of a robe,
surrounded by the sofa I love, illuminated
by only dim table lamps in a house which
has finally become quiet.
And this time, I open my eyes again, but
only momentarily because the comfort I am
experiencing is so much more important
than knowing who did it.

After all, I don't even know there.
perpetrator, or the victim. : "
My only allegiance is to Jack McCoy and
the script writers who are finally back in
business.
Sq I complomit ej I deitde I'll just listen
with my eyes closed. I know enough about
the story line to understand what's;
happening, and that way I can have the best
of both worlds.
But everyone knows you can't have the
best of both worlds; you have to pick.
And so, as the dialogue becomes quieter, I.
surrender myself to sleep. Yes, an
enchanting visitor named Sleep bids m.e.
come yonder, and then leaves me there on..
the sofa, with my mouth hanging open,.
.unattractively, while Jack McCoy and,
whatever good-looking assistant d.a. he's
currently in cahoots with, work like dogs
under Hollywood lights to rip stories from
the headlines and bring them right into my
living room.
I'm gone now.
So sorry.
Somewhere in Dreamland, I remember
that I don't know who did it. I wake up anrd'
it is two minutes after 11 p.m.
It is always two minutes after 11 p.m.
Not 20 minutes, not two hours.
Part of me is angry. I've done it agai4;-
How could I?
Yet the greatest comfort I can find at that
moment is the realization that the.
newspaper staff--much younger than I--will
have made it to the end of the drama. They.
will know. They will share. They will not:
understand, but they will not criticize eithe:I
My only other option is to exclusive j
watch re-runs. That way I know who did:i:
and can sleep anytime I want. ::
As I consider that option, I go upstairsi
to go to sleep, and I can't, of course:
I'm now wide awake. Yes, wide awake. I
could make it through two more dramas;
now, or even "Gone With the Wind,"
(including the intermission) but I'm not in
the mood.
I want my eight minutes back, and that,
feeling that the final eight minutes bring.
Perhaps that's the real law, the real order,,
and the real closer.
And that's what I desperately want.
That, and eight more minutes.
Just eight more.

After accidents



Cancer is the 2nd leading



cause of death in children


CANCER
Continued from page 2
1952, when the first edition of
Cancer Facts & Figures consisted
of four typewritten pages, the
American Cancer Society's annual
estimates of new cancer cases and
deaths has become a critical tool
foi scientists.* public health


experts, and policymakers in
assessing the current burden of
cancer.
Highlights from this year's
publications:-
Among men, cancers of the
prostate, lung and bronchus, and
colon and rectum account for one
in two (50 percent) of all newly
diagnosed cancers. Prostate cancer
alone accounts for one in four (25
percent) of the total cases in men.
The three most commonly
diagnosed types of cancer among
women in 2008 will be cancers of
.the breast, lung and bronchus, and
colon and rectum, accounting for
50 percent of estimated cancer
cases in women. Breast cancer
alone is expected to account for
one in four (26 percent) new
cancer cases among women.
,-Lung cancer surpassed breast
cancer as the leading cause of
cancer death in women in 1987.
Lung cancer is expected to account
for 26 percent of all female cancer
deaths in 2008.
Cancer incidence rates
stabilized. i men. from 1995 to
2004 and in women from 1999 to
2004. Between 2002 and 2004,
death rates for all cancer sites
combined decreased from by 2.6
percent per year in males and by
1.8 percent per year in females.
Mortality rates have continued
to decrease across all four major
cancer sites in men and in women
except for female lung cancer, in
which rates continued to increase
by 0.2 percent per year from 1995
to 2004.
:* Death rates from all cancers
combined peaked in 1990 for men
and in 1991 for women. Between
1990/1991 and 2004, death rates
from cancer decreased by 18.4
percent among men and by 10.5
percent among women
Lung cancer incidence rates are
declining in men and appear to be
plateauing in women after
increasing for many decades.
Colorectal cancer incidence
rates decreased from 1998 through
2004 in both males and in females.
Female breast cancer incidence
rates decreased by 3.5% per year
from 2001 to 2004, after increasing

since 1980. The decreases may
reflect the saturation of
mammography utilization and
reduction in hormone replacement
therapy use that followed the
publication of study results from
the Women's Health Initiative in
2002.
Among males ,under age 40
years, leukemia is the most


common fatal cancer, while lung
cancer predominates in men aged
40 years and older.
Among females, leukemia is
the leading cause of cancer death
before age 20 years, breast cancer
ranks first at' age 20 to 59 years,
and lung cancer ranks first at ages
60 and older.
African American men have a
19 percent higher incidence rate
and 37 percent higher death rate
from all cancers combined than
white men.. African American
women have a six percent lower
incidence rate, but a 17 percent
higher death rate than white'
women for all cancers combined.
Among other racial and ethnic
groups, cancer incidence and death
rates are lower than those in whites
and African Americans for all
cancer sites combined and for the
four most common cancer sites.
Cancer is the second leading
cause of death among children
between ages one to 14 years in the


U.S., after accidents. The five-year
relative survival rate among
children for all cancer sites
combined improved from 58
percent for patients diagnosed in
1975 to 1977 to 80 percent for
those diagnosed in 1996 to 2003.
Estimates of the expected
numbers of new cancer cases and
cancer deaths should be interpreted
with caution. These estimates may
vary considerably from year to
year, particularly for less common
cancers and in states with smaller
populations. Despite these
limitations, the American Cancer
Society's estimates of the number
of new cancer cases and deaths in
the current year provide
reasonably accurate estimates of
the burden of new cancer cases and
deaths in the United States. Such
estimates will assist in continuing
efforts to reduce the public health
burden of cancer.
"The progress that has been
made in reducing cancer death
rates is a direct result of
investment in approaches that we,
know work, such as
comprehensive tobacco control
and screening for breast, cervical
and colorectal cancers, as well as
research that has identified more
successful treatments," said ACS
Chief Medical Officer Otis W.
Brawley, MD.
The full report can be
viewed after embargo at
www.cancer.org/statistics.
The American Cancer Society
says it is dedicated to eliminating
cancer as a major health problem
by saving lives, diminishing
suffering and preventing;,' cancer
through research, education,
advocacy and service. Founded in
1913, the Society has 13 regional
Divisions and local offices in
3,400 communities, involving
millions of volunteers across the
