school board members earlier this
month, the district had a budget
deficit of $865,977 for the 2006-07
fiscal year, ending June 30,' 2007.
Added to that number is i
existing $180,000 deficit from the
previous year, bringing the total
deficit to $1.03 million.
According to District Finance
Director Vicki McManus, who was


hired in October 2007, the district
had believed its deficit for 2006-07
was approximately $219,000.
The preliminary audit findings,
however, found a series of timing
issues, accounting errors and
incorrectly allocated funds, which,
whei taken into account, added
morl than $600,000 to the deficit.
M Manus explained that a


number of the timing issues
involved payments to the district
that had been expected within 60
days after the fiscal year's end
(thus qualifying it for that year's
book), but were ultimately not
received until later. One such
payment was some $100,000 from
a Microsoft settlement.
Additionally, several expenses to


be, paid 60-day period should have been
noted in books when they were
closed June 30, but were not,
McManus said. Two such
payments, one for the STARS

possession of drugs


A Perry couple and their 19-
year-old son, linked to a Texas
prison gang known as the White
Knights, were arrested here
Monday on felony drug charges
relat ng to the sale and possession
of cannabis.
B nny. Lee Jack, 48, and his
wife, Rhonda King Jack, 47, both
face charges for sale of cannabis;
their son, Freddie Jack, was
charged with possession of
cannabis with intent to sell.
More than a pound of
cannabis--with a street value of
more than $1,500--was seized
during the execution of a search
warrant at the Jacks' residence
located in a mobile home park on
U.S. 19 South.
"The search- warrant was
obtained based on an undercover
, purchase operation," Taylor
County Sheriffs Office (TCSO)
Captain Ron Rice said.
The Taylor County Joint Drug
Task Force conducted four
undercover buys at the residence
and purchased six ounces of
cannabis from the Jacks.
"Charges are pending on two
more suspects for the
transportation and distribution of
21 pounds of cannabis,". Rice
noted.
Rhonda Jack was taken into
custody at the residence; a BOLO
(be on the look out) was issued for
Benny Jackand Freddie Jack. The
two men were arrested without
incident after being stopped on
U.S. Highway 19.
"During the execution of the

The Florida Taxation and
Budget Review Commission,
which meets every 20 years,
voted last week to move forward
with a ;proposal which 'would
eliminate the local school property
taxes that are mandated by the
state.
This would result in an
estimated 25 percent decrease
statewide in property taxes, but
would also leave a $9 billion

educcatioh.


reports, would result in between
$3-4 billion.
To make up the rest, the proposal
would defer to legislators, who are
encouraged to close some of the
many exemptions in the Florida
sales tax code.
The commission is expected to
vote on the issue on Friday, and if
approved, the constitutional
amendment would bypass the
legislature and go directly to
November's ballot for the voters.
Taylor County Superintendent of
Schools Oscar M. Howard said he

He also pointed out that one of
the reasons the state is currently
facing budget shortfalls--with
word coming from Tallahassee that
schools will be taking a six to 10
percent cut for the next school
year--is because state sales: tax
revenues are down.
He said the legislature
should "quit playing around with
the children of Florida's education.
The whole issue is to come up with
taxes or some other source that
will provide adequate funding for
education."

Aluminum industry


pioneer dies at 65


James H. "Buddy" Simpson, a
pioneer in the aluminum
accessories industry, died
Tuesday, March 25, after a five-'
year battle with a rare and
incurable form of cancer. He
was 65.
In the early 1970s, Simpson
worked with Aluminum
Fabricated Products (later
known as AFP), which produced
the original tread plate
aluminum tool boxes. He is?
credited for helping the
company develop the concept of
an aluminum tool box for trucks.
More than 40 years later,
aluminum accessories have
become a booming industry both
in Taylor County and across the
country.
"Buddy was involved with
Aluminum Fab when it was just
a small-time business and he
helped put the place on the map.
He was diligent, hard-working,
fair and tough. He wouldn't put
up with any nonsense, but
behind the office doors of his
superiors, he took care of his
people," RDS Plant Manager
Bill Dice said. (RDS is the
predecessor of AFP.)
Simpson later assisted with


the start-up of American
Aluminum Acc6ssories here and
also worked as a consultant for
the Texas-based company of
Contico Manufacturing.
He joined United Welding
Services (UWS) in 1991,
retiring seven years later. During
his tenure at UWS, the company
introduced a line of tool boxes

Some grant funds, which were
~'t used during the 2006-07 year,
should have been carried over to
the new year, but instead were
left in the books as revenue, she
added.'
Other monies were mis-
allocated, with several state funds
and grants, which have specific
limitations on how they can be
spent, instead placed into the
general fund as revenue.
In addition to the accounting
issues, the findings also stated the
district outspent its budget by
some $1.4 million.
According to the.audit findings,
"although the district's budget
process indicated that the original
budget was prepared and approved
in accordance with applicable laws
and rules, we noted that at June 30,
2007, prior to the school board's
approval of the final budget
amendments, the district had
general fund over-expenditures
totaling $1,338,328.94 in 11

recent cuts in state funding
announced last month, McManus
said she now predicts the district
will break even this year.
She added that the DOE does not
have a set timetable for how long
the district has to make back the
deficit.
"DOE did not expect us to make
that money up this year," she said.
"I think we should endeavor to
make it up in two years."
That prospect, however, appears
to be hard to reach. State
legislators, in session now in
Tallahassee, have sent state
departments word to expect
anywhere from a six to 10 percent
cut in funding due to the Florida's
own budget issues.
Meanwhile, McManus said the
district's deficit has been paid by
taking some $1.4 million from its
capital fund. Some $3 million
remains in that fund.
As for the district's reserve fund,
she said the district tries to keep
around $600,000 and currently, the
fund is at those levels.
McManus said the district is not
contesting most of the issues
brought up in the preliminary audit
report.
"In general, our response to the
audit findings is that we agree with
the findings and these are the
corrective measures we are
taking," she said. "There may be
some issues on which we have a
difference of opinion."
' McManus .remained upbeat
about the district's prospects to
overcome the deficit.
"We are managing this as a team
and we will be able to make up that
deficit," she said.
"We are correcting the
deficiencies and we will go on
from here,". Superintendent of
Schools Oscar M. Howard Jr. said.

Today is final


hearing on fate


of Vision 2060
The Taylor County Commission will decide today (Wednesday) whether
or not to transmit the Vision 2060 Shared Vision Plan to state officials to
approve it as part of the county's comprehensive plan.
The public hearing, is set to begin at 5 p.m. at the county courthouse
annex.
Commissioners unanimously approved the plan earlier this month and
scheduled today's public hearing to continue the process by which the
vision will be adopted into the comp plan.
The plan, which plots a course for Taylor County over the next 50 years,
was developed through community participation over a 10-month period
with partnerships between the Perry-Taylor County Chamber of
Commerce and the Orlando-based planning firm MSCW.
According to MSCW Senior Planner Jim Sellen, who spoke with
commissioners during the earlier
meeting, if the vision is approved as ra
a new chapter in the comp plan, it .
would serve as a reference guide for
future development, but would not
hold any regulatory control.
In the future, as the commission
decides, the county could transmit
additional amendments to take parts
of the vision and insert them into the
comprehensive plan's regulatory
sections. Similarly, the county's land .
development codes could be updated
by the commission to include parts
of the vision plan,.
The Vision 2060 plan includes
a graphic : portrayal of
preferred development patterns, A final public hearing on,
recommended goals, objectives, and the Vision 2060 plan will be
policies for the county's ,held today at the courthouse
comprehensive plan and quality of annex.
life benchmarks to monitor progress
and specific actions to implement the vision, including a five-year
economic development action plan.
Much of the proposed development areas in the plan are concentrated
around the City of Perry and along the coast, inland from County Road'
361 between the beaches area and Steinhatchee. The existing communities
along the coast are included in a new "village" type entitled coastal
settlement.
Copies of the Shared Vision Plan are available for public viewing-at the
Taylor County Administration Building and the Taylor County Public,
Library.

W or at least the

paper it's written on.


From cover to cover, the Taco Times is full of news, sports, community
events, classifieds and much more. Get your 50 worth with these 25 good
uses for a newspaper once you've read it:


1. Temporarily block the sun from streaming in windows.
2. Spread sheets of newspapers out and make clothing patterns
3. Dampen and spread over window glass to protect it when you paint.
. Line and protect closet shelves and drawer bottoms
5. Place folded newspapers on the floor as a mat for wet shoes or muddy
boots.
6. Make fire logs out of old newspapers. Roll sheets of newspapers up
tightly in the shap6 of a log. Tie them tight with string and use them in
your fireplace or on a camp fire.
7. Do you still have some old 45 or other type of vinyl records? Store
them safely by placing old newspapers in between each one.
8. Ball up half sheets and let Kitty play with them. Cats love the crinkling
noise.
9. Place balls of old newspapers inside leather shoes, purses, and in suit-
cases. They help leather items keep their shape. They also help deodorize
them.
10. Use old newspapers to polish windows to a streak-free shine. Also
great for polishing chrome.
11. Your auto have a fluid leak? Place sheets underneath your car when
it's parked in the garage to protect the floor.
12. If your auto's parked outside in the winter weather, lay old newspa-
pers on the windshield so you don't have to clean off ice and snow in the
morning.


13. Spread otit sheets of newspaper between plants in your garden to
keep weed growth down. Cheaper than black plastic!
14. Make mulch for your garden.
15. Bring green tomatoes in the house and wrap them'in old newspapers.
Place them in a dark, cool area, and they will ripen nicely.
16. Expecting a frost? Cover vulnerable garden plants with tents made
out of newspapers.
17. Fold them over and kneel on them when you're working in the gar-
den.
18. Transport fresh flowers in damp newspaper to keep them fresh lon-
ger.
19. Buy some glue, long sticks, string, and let your kids make kites.
20. Celebrate New Year's Eve with confetti made from old newspapers.
21. Let the kids keep busy on a rainy day. Let them make paper chains,
hand puppets, or costumes.
22. Make a kid's birthday party fun! Use filled balloons, flour, water, and
strips of old newspapers to create a pifiata.
23. Wrap up glass and other breakables in thick sheets of newspaper
before you pack them to move.
24. Temporarily cover up a broken window until you can get it repaired.
25. Use strips of newspaper in place of litter in your kitty's box.

Can mandatory recycling


save taxpayers money?


B--


Dear Editor:
In 1992 the small city of
Crockett, Texas (population of
7141) made -it mandatory for
citizens to separate their
recyclables from their household
trash.
Most cities and counties had
been reducing or eliminating their
recycling programs to reduce
taxpayer costs. But Crockett's
controversial program worked at
reducing taxpayer landfill costs,
actually reducing landfill trash 52
percent, thereby saving taxpayers
money on their solid waste tax.
Most years, the city's solid waste
program is paid for by profits from
recycling and savings from not
going to the landfill, along with the
$13 monthly fee charged to
residents and profits from the sale
of the clear bags.
"A 1998 survey by the Institute
for Local Self-Reliance for the
U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency named Crockett among 18
record-setting American cities that
had cut their waste in half by
recycling." How do they do it?
Seventeen employees collect trash
four days a week in dump trucks.
On the fifth day, they pick up
recyclable materials. They later
sort the materials for recyclers
to pick up. (Source: Dina
Cappiello, Houston Chronicle
Knight Ridder/Tribune Business
News)
Recycling--yes it's that dirty
little word that makes you feel a
little guilty if you don't do it.
Sometimes you just can't bring
yourself to put forth the effort. All
that sorting --and for what? What
difference can my little family
make?
I'm not saying we need to chain
ourselves to a tree. or something,
but here are some facts about
recycling and how it can save
you money and help the
environment.
Recycling one aluminum can
saves enough energy to run a TV
for three hours -- or the equivalent
of a half a gallon of gasoline.
An aluminum can that is


Dear Editor:
I would like to thank Mr. Ken
Johnson and Burger King
restaurant for providing two
meals to all workers and
volunteers the day of the recent
Taylor County tornado. I am


thrown away will still be a can 500
years from now.
Enough energy is saved by
recycling one aluminum can to
light one 100 watt bulb for 20
hours.
Making cans from recycled
aluminum cuts related air pollution
(for example, sulfur dioxides,
which create acid rain) by 95
percent.


'Americans use
2,500,000 plastic
bottles every hour.
Most of them are
thrown away.'

A 60-watt light bulb can be runl
for over a day on the amount of
energy saved by recycling one
pound of steel.
In one year in the United
States, the recycling of steel saves
enough energy to heat and light
18,000,000 homes.
Making new steel products
froin recycled steel instead of
virgin ore reduces water use by 40
percent, water pollution by 76
percent, air pollution by 86
percent and mining wastes by 97
percent.
Recycling one ton of paper
saves the equivalent of 17 trees,
saves enough energy to power an
average home for six months,
saves 7,000 gallons of water and
keeps 60 pounds of pollutants out
of the air.
Recycling corrugated cardboard


confident that everyone
appreciated a warm meal and
something to drink, as well As
those that assisted in the clean-up.
.Taylor County really has a lot of
great folks!

cuts the emissions of sulfur dioxide
in half and uses about 25 percent
less energy than making cardboard
from virgin pulp.
To produce each week's
Sunday newspapers, 500,000 trees
must be cut down.
If every American recycled just
one-tenth of their newspapers, we
would save about 25,000,000 trees
a year.
Americans use 2,500,000
plastic bottles every hour. Most of
them are thrown away.
Recycling plastic saves twice
as much energy as burning it in an
incinerator.
Recycled PET (#1)'bottles are
used to make fiber (58 percent),
strapping (13 percent) and
containers (17 percent).
Recycle, HDPE (#2) bottles
are used to make more bottles (36
percent), pipe (19 percent),
lawn/garden items (11 percent),
and lumber (8 percent).
Five recycled soft drink bottles
make enough fiberfill for a man's
ski jacket. Thirty-six recycled
bottles can make one square yard
of carpet.
It takes 25 two-liter bottles to
make a sweater.
It takes 35 two-liter bottles to
make enough fiberfill for a
sleeping bag.
Nearly 10 percent of U.S. oil
consumption, which equates to
approximately two million barrels
a day, is used to make plastics.
The energy saved from
recycling one glass bottle can run a
100-watt light bulb for four hours.
A modem glass bottle would
take 4000 years or more to
decompose -- and even longer if
it's in the landfill.
A single quart of motor oil, if
disposed of improperly, can
contaminate up to 2,000,000
gallons of fresh water.
Used motor oil can be refined
into fuel oil. One gallon of oil,
when re-processed,-can generate
enough energy to meet the
electricity needs of your home for


half a day.

Covenant Hospice observes


National Social Work Month


Steve Campbell, director of branch operations and a social worker, presents fellow Covenant
Hospice social workers with gifts in observance of National Social Work Month.


Beware! IRS e-mail scams bring


viruses, phishing schemes here


A virus e-mail is circulating that
supposedly comes from the IRS,
according to information from
Fairpoint Communications. .
It states that all U.S. citizens are
required by law to update their
computers with new tax software.
This is not true. The link in the e-
mail goes to a Web site that starts
an automatic download of a virus
file. Do not click the link, or your
computer will become infected.
There is also another warning
about phishing schemes related to
tax season. Some of you who
overpaid in 2007 will be receiving
a refund of some taxes already
withheld. In addition, this year
most Americans can expect a
separate rebate check from the
government as part of an economic
sti'nulus package passed last
mrnth.
Certainly a rebate check and
possible refund is welcome news.
However, there are thieves already
plottinig to turn that good news into
a nightmare fpr you. The, IRS is
warning about' plfin'slg' 'chene' "
that play on tax rebates and
refunds to trick people into giving
up sensitive information, such as
Scicial Security, bank account or
credit card numbers. These scams
come by e-mail, as well as via
phone, call, and the IRS expects
that they will continue through tax
season and beyond.
In a typical phone scam, you
would receive a call from someone
identifying himself as an IRS
agent:' They would give you the


apparent good news that you are
eligible for a rebate, and you
simply need to provide your bank
account information to initiate a
direct deposit of the funds. If you
refuse, you are told you cannot
receive the rebate. In another
scam, the supposed IRS employee
says that a check has already been
sent but was never cashed, and
they will need to verify your bank
account information.
The e-mail scams are similar.
One says that you are eligible to
receive a' refund of a specific
amount. There is a link in the e-
mail to a fake refund claim form,
but that form is actually designed
to collect information that can be
used to steal your money and
identity. Another e-mail scam
claims that your tax form is
scheduled to be audited, which is
sure to get anyone's attention. This
message would also direct you to a
fake form.
Don't be fooled. The IRS does
not~gather information such as phis
'15y ''ph'dri, ailt do 4 'not 'send'
unsolicited e-mail about tax
account matters. Tax rebates will
be automatically sent to qualified
individuals who file a 2007 tax
return, and filing a tax %return is
also the only way to apply for a tax
refund. In addition, it is on your
tax return where you would
provide the required information to
set up a direct deposit of your
refund should you choose to do so.
The IRS does not require taxpayers
to use direct deposit.


Please always be suspicious of
unsolicited e-mail messages from
any source, since they may contain
links to viruses or forms designed
to gain access to your personal
information.


Covenant Hospice recently
recognized its social workers in
honor of National Social Work
Month.
Covenant hosted a breakfast and
presented gifts to Joi Norwood,
BSW; Bobbie Massey, MSW;
Velma Penermon, MSW; Erik
Persson, MSW; Elizabeth

Social Work Month provides an
opportunity for social workers to
highlight the essential role they
play in alleviating some of
America's most difficult problems,
such as health, aging, mental
health, child welfare, cancer, end
of life, adolescent health,
HIV/AIDS and family violence.
This year's theme promotes social

Marcia Parker
Luminaria, paying tribute to
those who survive and those who
fought the battle against cancer,
will light the way for those who
walk at this year's Relay For Life,
April 25-26.
For a donation of $5, luminaria
can be dedicated in honor of a
cancer survivor or in memory of a
loved one. These bags, displaying
individuals' names, will be arranged
alphabetically around the Taylor
County High School track on the
evening of the Relay. Candles
will be lighted before the 9 p.m.
luminaria ceremony.
"There will be no activity at the
campsites or walking on the track
during, this ceremony. Complete
silence will be observed with the
only light coming from the lighted
candles in the bags," said Cheryl
Gregory, publicity chair for the
2008 Relay. "This is always a time
which touches peoples' hearts-
-a solemn and reverent time of
remembering our loved ones who
struggled to survive this disease,


Honoring survivors,
remembering loved ones.


Luminaria

Track markers, for $100, will
display the names of community
leaders, local celebrities,
organizations and individuals.
They will line the track for the
duration of the Relay, and are
guaranteed "plenty of exposure
--just think how many people
will be walking the track from
late afternoon April 25 until late
morning, April 26," said Gregory.

by Friday, April 4.

B-5 Taco Times March 26, 2008.


Emphasizes 'common goals'



Kendrick speaks at



Florida Forever Day


Sulbmitted by VICKY SUMMERHILL
Legislative Assistant
Tuesday, March 19th, was
"Florida Forever Day" at the
capitol. Gusting winds channeled
through the courtyard area
between the old capitol and the
present capitol building and
seemed to emphasize the theme -of
the :day for anchoring a program
that. sustains the valuable public
resources in place for future
generations. Various
environmental organizations and
state agencies displayed materials
and, wares that highlighted the
environmental resources and assets
that are available to the citizens of
Florida.
Speakers at the event included
Staie Representative Will S.
Kendrick (R-Carrabelle). Upon
taking the podium, he commented,
"Florida Forever is like this wind.
You had better hold on to what
you've got or it will be gone."
Kendrick chairs the Florida
House of Representatives
Committee on Conservation and


State Lands and is a tireless
advocate of protecting and
conserving public lands in the state


Rep. Will Kendrick
and increasing public access.
Workihg with leadership and the
Environment and Natural
Resources Council, Rep. Kendrick
has helped steer a direction for a


successor program to continue and
guide Florida Forever into the
future.
In speaking to the crowd Rep.
Kendrick said, "We share a
common goal, the improved
stewardship of our natural
resources."
He also stated that while more
dollars may be needed to improve
stewardship, the path to dollars is
in providing accountability, not
just on how dollars are spent but
also how those dollars have
improved habitats and increased
public access.
Florida Forever is the vehicle
which acquires and preserves
public lands, including wetlands,
historic sites, parks and public
recreational facilities, restores
damaged environmental systems,
and provides water resource
protection.
The program is re-authorized
every 10 years. Prior to Florida
Forever, which was established in
2001, the predecessor program was
P2000.


Ethanol talks
Representative from East Coast Ethanol, which intends to construct four 100-million gallon
per year ethanol plants in the southeastern United States, were guest speakers recently at the
Perry Rotary Club. The representatives discussed the current economic situation for ethanol
in the country as well as their plans to build one plant each in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina
and North Carolina. They also fielded questions from Rotary members. Shown above are (from
I to r): Walter Kittrell, vice president of project development with Fagen, Inc.; Rotarian Pam
Rigoni-Parker; Jeff Richardson, consultant with C. Thompson and Associates; and Lee Hatch,
executive director and project manager for the Florida project. For more information about
the project, visit www.eastcoastethanol.us.

B-8 Taco Times March 26, 2008

In Steinhatchee


'Growling good time'had


by all at PAWS fund-raiser


By SUSAN CURTIS
PAWS committee member
,Even though the weather did not
cooperate, the PAWSI (Pets Are
Worth Spaying) fund-raiser was a
great success. Funding for more
than 50 animals to be: spayed or
neutered was raised by ticket
attendance, raffle and auction!
PAWS has helped pet owners in
tge Steinhatchee and. Jena


communities neuter their pets
since organizing almost 10 years
ago.
The party held at Gulf Stream
Marina began with a "Yappy
Hour" as supporters arrived in the
drizzle. A "Kibbles and Bits"
dinner soon followed. Guests
enjoyed barbecued chicken, baked
beans, cold slaw, potato salad and
Texas toast prepared and donated


,Susan Jones and Mickey Nyberg with "Priscilla," the
cdficial dog mascot for the evening.


Claude Smoak presents the red rose bouquet (donated by
Camille McElwee) that he purchased in the auction. .


by Gulf Stream Marina. PAWS
especially thanks Tracy and Andy
Dowd and Jamie Pate, from Gulf
Stream who offered their services
for the event. The members of
PAWS baked for "Grab It and
Growl Desserts." Pat Crawford
made, a gorgeous cake decorated
with cats and dogs as a centerpiece
for the dessert table. It not only
looked good, it tasted good!
Raffle tickets were being sold all
night and almost everyone
participated and actually won
some item before, during and after
the highlight of the evening, the
auction!
Gary Atkins, a Steinhatchee
weekender from Jacksonville, was
kind enough to lend his superb
services as an auctioneer for the
event. He cajoled and joked his
way through a huge assortment of
items donated to the cause
including stained glass pieces, oil
paintings, hand crafted furniture,
coolers, fishing tackle etc.
There was a lot of laughter
associated with the auction and
everyone who bought something
knew his or her money had gone to
a great cause.
PAWS thanks all the buyers and
all the businesses and individuals
who donated items for the auction.
It could not have been a success
without your sul~port.
The PAWS committee included
Susan Jones, Nancy Conrad,
Camille McElwee, Mickey Nyberg
and Susan Curtis.
More than 70 people attended
the event. Next year -PAWS hopes
to double that number. There is no
shortage of animals that need
spaying and neutering.
Remember a single unsprayed
cat and her offspring can produce
over 600 unwanted animals in two
years! We have all seen unwanted
dogs and cats roaming the roads.
If you would lik to join PAWS in
its effort to reduce the unwanted
animal population or if you have a
pet that needs spaying or
neutering, you can send a check to
PAWS, P.O. BbX 47, Stteithatthee,
FL 32359 or call Nancy Corfrad at
(352) 498-7289. ,
