Rediscovering one of


Florida's oldest golf courses
S. By MARK VIOLA
Staff writer
North Florida was still mostly a
frontier land in the early years of
the 20th century, filled with old
growth forests and impenetrable
-swamps. Surrounded by miles of
Taylor County wilderness,
.. however, stood the regal Hotel
Hampton, and nearby a most
unusual sight could be seen:
visitors playing golf.
Hotel Hainplon, which opened
in. 1908, drew people from
around the country to bathe in its
sulfur-water pools and enjoy its
state-of-the-art amenities.
i-";": :. Among the attrcions the hotel
showcased was a nine-hole golf
':course, considered today to be
one of the first golf courses built
"-_- -. .'.-.". -" in North Florida, I Ic oldest golf

Beach.
Due to the hotel's local and
regional igonific,ime. Taylor
County has received grants
through the Bureau of Historical
Resources for the past five years
to assist in archaeological efforts
underway to rediscover the
history that has been lost to time.
Over the past five years, attention
has focused on the hotel site

"Jerry came up on the bike and
Melissa mentioned how much she
missed riding and asked if he
would take her for a short run on
the bike. He said 'sure, we'll run
down thecorner and back'," Ross
recounted.
"Melissa got to the door, looked
back and said, 'I'll be right back.'
She left her purse sitting here on
the counter...but she never made it
back."
Curry and Mallory were
apparently returning to the Huddle
House when they were involved in
a crash with another vehicle.
The wreck occurred around 2:47


p.m., near the intersection of the
Perry Apartments exit and
Highway 19 South.
Leslie Hampton Dunnell, 57,
was attempting to turn left from the
Perry Apartments exit at the same
time Curry and' Mallory were
traveling south on Highway 19.
Curry attempted to avoid hitting
the car by braking and changing
lanes; the car continued into the
inside lane of S.R. 30 (Highway
19). It was at this point the
motorcycle crashed into the left
rear of the car, according to a
report from the Perry Police
Department.

Careless driving
Blank lottery tickets filled the median of U.S. Highway 19 South after this Florida Lottery van crashed around 12 noon on
Monday. The driver, Edward R. Lewis, 28, of Tallahassee, was traveling north about eight miles south of Perry when he "drove
off the east side of the roadway," according to a report from Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Allen Kennard. Lewis then
overcorrected and the van began rotating counterclockwise, skidding across both northbound lanes and traveling into the
median, coming to a rest on its left side facing south. Personnel from the Taylor County Sheriff's Office, Taylor County
Fire/Rescue, Doctors' Memorial Emergency Medical Services and the State Fire Marshal's. Office responded to the scene.
Lewis, who received minor injuries in the crash, was cited for careless driving. (Photo by Mark Viola)

was also in charge of the K-9
bloodhounds for tracking escapees
from local and state facilities as
well as lost persons. While with
the TCSO I received a letter of
commendation from former
Sheriff Quentin Whittle for
recovering thousands of dollars in
cannabis," Chambers said.
"In 1989 I started a new career

Little can be seen of a wooden well discovered at the Hampton golf course site. Arch
Ross Morrell theorizes that the well was used as decorative landscaping, perhaps as a
well. The well is one of more than 50 features Morrell has discovered during the past
rnonths.

itself, along with the nearby power
and bottling plants. This year,
however, attention turned to the
golf course. Archaeologist Ross
Morrell has spent the past several
months investigating the site while
he located and catalogues
historical features.
While Hotel Hampton wa's
considered a high-class destination
;for almost two decades, it hit hard
times in the late 1920s and
.subsequenil. the facility was
"converted into a boarding house.
iDuring World War II, military
.personnel were housed in the
:former hotel.
By the 1950s, the hotel held only
.a glimmer of its former glory and
in 1954, its chapter was closed for
good when the structure caught
fire and burned to the ground.
Morrell, Florida's first state
archaeologist and former Director
of the Florida Division: of
Historical Resources, has been
working with the county since the
Hampton Springs project began.
Last week he gave a tour of the
area, pointing out the various
features he had found so far.
A golf course is a relatively flat
location, so many of the signs are
not obvious at first.
Morrell was able to begin his
search by using an overhead
diagram of the hotel dating back to
the early 1900s as well as an aerial
photograph from 1952. While the
hotel has long since fallen into
disrepair, the remnants of the
fairways were still visible from
the air.
Today, from the ground, those
fairways have all but disappeared,

Clean- up,



green-up



+ & fix-up


With the 2008 presidential
campaign heating up, Keep Taylor
County Beautiful (KTCB) is
embarking on a campaign of its
own, joining national nonprofit
Keep America Beautiful (KAB) in
the Great American Clean-up to
campaign for a cleaner, greener
America. Unlike the'presidential
candidates, KTCB is making a
rather unusual campaign promise
this year--it will "fight dirty" and
focus on improving communities
nationwide for all to enjoy.
aelogist Here in Taylor County and
wishing across the nation, volunteers will
several rally to fight dirty streets,
waterways and public spaces by
removing litter and illegal dump
sites, greening up parks,
schoolyards and other public
spaces, holding recycling drives,
f hosting educational events,
painting-out graffiti and more.
Taylor County Shines Day,
planned Friday, March 28, will
kick off this year's Great American
Cleanup in Taylor County.
"Hundreds locally will be
cleaning up our neighborhoods,
S schools and playgrounds. The
event will begin at 10 a.m. at the
chamber of commerce. Pepsi,
which is both a local and national
rs e s sponsor, will be giving out free
refreshments to those who sign up
to clean up," KTCB Director


Dawn Taylor said.
T-shirts will be given to
volunteers as well as free trees.
The first 70 people to sign up
will receive their choice of a
dogwood tree, red maple or
blueberry bush.
"Sign up on March 28 and pick
up the supplies you will need to
begin your clean-up."


Taylor County Shines
During past clean-up efforts, local volunteers have worked
in their own neighborhoods and others to help "Keep Taylor
County Beautiful." You're invited to take, part in this year's
"Taylor County Shines Day" planned Friday, March 28, at the
Chamber of Commerce. Volunteers who register for this
year's Great American Clean-Up will receive free t-shirts
and their choice of a free dogwood tree, red maple or

:5Sure this world is full of trouble,
:t'n't said it ain't.
;./.ord I've had enough and double
:ikeon for complaint. Rain and
Storm have come to fret me, skies
were often gray.
Thorns and branches have beset


me on the road but, say, ain't it fine
today?
What's the use of always weepin'
making trouble last. What's the use
of always thinking of the past.
Each must have its. tribulation,
water with his wine, Life it ain't no
celebration, trouble I have had
mine, but today is fine.


It's today that I am living, not a
month ago; Having, losin', takin',
givin' as time wills it so. Yesterday
a cloud of sorrow fell across the
way; it may rain but, say, ain't it
fine today? Thank you Lord for
today.

Focus on the Family

Quantity vs. quality in 'quality time'
QUESTION: I have very little ime to spend with .my children these
days, but I make sure the hours we do get to spend together are
meaningful. Do you agree that the quality of time you are with your kids
is more important than the quantity?
DR. JAMES DOBSON: I'm afraid the logic of that concept is flawed
to me. The question is, why do we have to choose between the virtues of
.quantity vs. quality? We won't accept that forced choice in any other area
of our lives. So why is it relevant only to our children?
Let me illustrate my point. Let's suppose you've looked forward all day
to eating at one of the finest restaurants in town. The waiter brings yot a
menu, and you order the most expensive steak in the house. But when the
meal arrives, you see a-tiny piece of meat about 1 inch square in the center
of the plate. When you complain about the size of the steak, the waiter
says, "Sir, I recognize that the portion is small, but that's the finest corn-
fed beef money can buy. You'll never find a better bite of meat than we've
served you tonight. As to the portion, I hope you understand that it's not
the quantity that matters; it's the quality that counts."
. You would object, and for good reason. Why? Because both quality
AND quantity are important in many areas of our lives, including how we
relate to children.
They need our time and the best we have to give them. My concern is
that the quantity vs. quality argument might be a poorly disguised
rationalization for giving our children neither.

Summer courses open



the door to AA degrees


Bike show winner
First-time bike builder Ronnie Fleming of Perry beat out more experienced custom bike
builders to win first place in the renowned Rat's Hole Rat Fest Bike Show held annually at
Daytona Bike Week. Fleming's custom Harley "Bobber" will be featured on the Rat's Hole Web
site. The bike features custom parts crafted by Fleming, owner of Bull's Bobbers, Inc. "I have
been a welder/fabricator most of my adult life and thought, if those folks on television can
build custom bikes, I can too," Fleming said. The bike took 15 months complete; the custom
paint job was done by Frank Young, also of Perry. Both men are shown above with the winning
Tnotorcyle.

the past seven, years," said
Congressman Boyd.
"For those first six years under
the current administration, our
calls fell on deaf ears, but no more.
The House Budget Resolution, for
the second year in a row,
includes common sense PAYGO
spending rules and makes
fiscal responsibility a guiding
principle."
Congressman Boyd worked with
his colleagues on the House
Budget Committee to include the
following priorities in the budget
resolution:
Adherence to PAYGO budget
discipline, a principle long
advocated by Congressman Boyd
and the Blue Dogs as a solution for
putting an end to deficit spending
and reducing the $9 trillion


national debt.
A commitment to provide
adequate funding for our
government's number one priority:
the defense of our country and its
citizens. This budget provides for
a strong national defense,
matching the funding request in
the President's budget, and
includes significant increases for
veterans' programs.
Provides fiscally responsible
tax relief for 23 million middle
income Americans by paying for a
fix to the Alternative Minimum
Tax (AMT).
Holds the line on mandatory
spending' levels, putting our
country back on the path to fiscal
responsibility.
Puts an end to irresponsible
deficit spending, providing for a
budget surplus by 2012 and greater
deficit reduction than the
President's budget.
Cracks down on wasteful
government spending within major
government programs such as
Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax
enforcement.
The House Budget Resolution
also does not raise taxes by one
penny and leaves current tax cuts
in place, providing for their
responsible extension in the future.
Under PAYGO rules, extensions of
tax cuts, like all other policies,


must be paid for and cannot be
financed on borrowed money that
we must pay, back later with
interest.
Additionally, this budget
acknowledges that our federal
government is on an unsustainable
fiscal path of rising deficits and
debt and that the most significant
factor affecting the long term fiscal
landscape is the expectation that
total public and private health
spending will continue to grow
faster than the economy. Th4
budget resolution contains aji
expressed commitment to address
these long-term fiscal challenges'
facing the country.
"I am proud to support a budget
'resolution that is honest about our
fiscal future and does not shirk our
responsibility to confront these
serious fiscal issues head on,
whether short term or long term,"
Boyd stated.
"With a national debt that has
grown over $3 trillion under the.'
current administration, correcting
the fiscal course of our country
cannot happen overnight, but we
are making steady progress
through this 'fiscally responsible
budget. I will continue to work
everyday to chart a new,
responsible fiscal course for
the health and strength of our
country."

The up-and-coming rock band,
The Drive Home, drove to Perry
last week for a special "meet and
greet"" in advance of their
.scheduled appearance at this year's
Relay For Life event.
Three members of band
appeared Tuesday, March 11, at
Sonic Drive-In and met with fans
for two hours.
The band consists of musicians
from very different backgrounds,
but all are now students at Florida
International University in Miami.
Guitarist Lester Melendez is
from 'Nicaragua and is studying
computer science. Vocalist Sean
Alan is from. Canada and is
studying theater, music and dance.
Bass guitarist Jim Pandolfe is from
New York and is studying mass
media communications.
Drummer Everton Furtado was
unable to make the trip. :
Members of the community
brought cameras, camcorders and
items for the band to autograph.
One boy brought a drum stick,
which all three band members
signed. The band brought with
them photos, which they signed
and gave to everyone.
In exchange, those in attendance
were invited to sign a banner, the
band had brought with them,
which they said would serve as a


keepsake from their time in Perry.
Melvin Parker of WPRY 1400
was present as well, and the event
was presented live over the radio,
including the band's performance
of "Everyday."
The Drive Home will be
providing the musical
entertainment at Taylor County's
Relay For Life. On Friday, April
25, they will take the stage from
approximately 9:15 p.m. until
11:30 and return on Saturday
morning, April 26, 9 until 11 a.m.
