was originally listed on the calendar
we published in our Back To School
edition,-has since been amended.

school ends. You do not. But take
heart: there are only 36 days left for
.students. The end is near!

The news surrounding Doctors'
Memorial Hospital continues to be
more upbeat than in previous
months as the facility reported its
second 'straight month of positive
financial reports.
DMH CEO Charles Darcy, along
with interim Chief Financial
Officer Tristan Glanzille,
presented February's financial
report to the Taylor County
Commission Monday evening.
The hospital reported a net gain
of $328,625 for the month of
February.
This follows a $118,000 net



District


seeks


help with


finances

The Taylor County School
Board will hold a special meeting
Thursday to discuss a report
presented this week on the
district's financial and business
situation.
With recent preliminary audit
reports from the 2006-07 ,school
year showing a more than
$1 million deficit coupled with
word of funding cuts from the
state, Superintendent of Schools
Oscar M. Howard Jr. said he has
been working to get outside
assistance. ...
To that end, he asked the Florida
Association of District School
Superintendents to examine the
district. The report, which will be
presented to school board
members at Thursday's meeting,
includes a list of recommendations
from the association.
"It contains everything from
food service to transportation,"
Howard said. "It is an entire study
of the system.
"We will go over the
recommendations and implement
them over time."
The special meeting will be held
at 12 noon at the District

profit in January. The hospital
broke even in January.
This was markedly better than
the news from October and
November, with both months
reporting a more than $400,000 net
loss.
For the current fiscal year, which
began on June 1, the hospital still
has a net loss of $316,000.
Darcy and Glanzille present a
number of patient activity trends
dating back to June 2006.
Both admission and patient days
have been trending down over that
period, but have seen a sharp spike


in the past several months.
In fact, February saw the most
admissions of any month during
that time frame, with more than
250 admissions. November 2007
was the lowest, with less than 150
admissions.
Emergency room visits and
outpatient visits are both trending
up, while clinic visits are trending
down slightly.
A major concern, Darcy said, is
surgical procedures are trending
down. He added that the hospital is
attempting to find a second
surgeon 'to complement Dr. Miles


Nelson.
Recently the hospital
interviewed two surgeons and one
came as far as to stay here for a
week before deciding to move on,
Darcy said.
Endoscopic procedures have
increased in recent months, which
Darcy credited to the addition of
Dr. Bas Mutnal to the hospital's
staff.
As for February's positive
numbers, Darcy said that this is the
hospital's busy season and it
"should do well."
Darcy said that while the

on cost savings, it will now focus
on increasing revenues.
The sharp deficits from last year
prompted hospital officials to

its own financial issues.
The commission was to consider
several proposals last month to
assist the hospital, including using
excess sales tax funds to purchase
new radiological equipment, but

Gray skies no match for bluegrass


By MARKVIOLA
Staff writer
While the worst of the inclement
weather that drove through the area
over the weekend missed Taylor
County, the gray skies were on the
minds of everyone at the sixth
annual Florida State Bluegrass
Festival.


Thousands of music fans from
across the country--and beyond--
converged on Forest Capital State
Park as the area celebrated three
days of "some of the best music
Florida has to offer."
The weather was clear Thursday
night as the festival opened early
for the first time with an open mike


night on the mainstage.
"This was the first time we
opened on. Thursday," Festival
Coordinator Dawn Taylor said.
"We were surprised how many
people turned out."
Bands Deep Creek Bluegrass,
Ernie Evans & Southern Lite and
Kickin Grass finished off the


evening's performances.
The music started up again
Friday afternoon and even before
many were off work, the area in
front of Heritage Pavilion was
filled with chairs and bluegrass
fans.

O'Neal, Eddy



remembered


The Franklin County Board of
County Commissioners will host a
dedication ceremony on Saturday,
April 12, at 9 a.m. for the baseball
fields newly named in the
memories of Jacobie C. O'Neal
and Tyler S. Eddy.
The two fields, at the D.W.
Wilson Sports Complex on 100
Gibson Road, are being named to
honor the two boys, who both were
active members of the Franklin
County Dixiq League.
Eddy, the son of Bob and Toni
(Courtney) Eddy, of Apalachicola,
died suddenly last year while
diving with his family off St. Joe
Bay.
He was also the grandson of
Billy and Mary Jane Cannon of


Perry, the late Wade Courtney, and
the late Thomas and Louise Allen.
O'Neal, of Apalachicola, who
received a heart transplant as a
very young boy, died two years
ago after a valiant struggle.
The Eddy family has announced
the formation of the Tyler Eddy
Scholarship for the Mike Martin
Baseball Camp, with all donations
going to send a deserving boy to
the renowned Florida State
University baseball camp.
This year the camp will be held
in three sessions, June 15 to 20,
July 13 to 18 and July 27 to Aug. I
Donations can be made at

ran late into the evening,
culminating with headliners
Cadillac Sky.
The rains finally fell during the
early morning hours of Saturday
before letting up in time for the
Florida State Bluegrass
Music Competition. Individual
performers and bands who had
qualified at preliminaries held
across Florida competed in Forest
Capital Hall for the state's top
awards.
The winners were honored on
stage later that afternoon.
The mainstage performances
resumed at 11 a.m., followed
shortly thereafter by the sixth
annual Rotary Club Chili Cook-
off, which saw 28 entries and
approximately 100 bowls of chili
served. For final results, see page
B'-3.
The skies darkened as the
afternoon drew on, and festival
organizers increasingly called for
updated weather forecasts.
Finally, perhaps as an omen,
only minutes after Carrie Hassler
and her band Hard Rain left the
stage, the rain did indeed come.
The festival, already set for a
scheduled dinner break, decided to
wait out the weather.
While the heaviest rain lasted
only about 20 minutes, a light
drizzle persisted for most of the
evening.
The remaining bands, however,
believing in the adage of "the show

must go on," resolutely took the
stage after a slightly longer than
planned break.
Diehard bluegrass fans sought
shelter under tents and umbrellas
or simply braved the weather in
ponchos after Ernie Evans &
Southern Lite took the stage.
Meanwhile, an impromptu
indoor concert was staged when
several bands along with
participants from the morning's
competition joined together to play
inside Forest Capital Hall.
Outside, Southern Lite was
followed Charlie Sizemore, Randy
Kohrs and Cadillac Sky.
By the time the headliners took
the stage shortly after 9 p.m., most
of the remaining fans had forgone
the tents and stood together in
front of the stage as the band
played favorites such as "Born
Lonesome" and "Weary Angel,"
and made a quick departure with a
bluegrass cover of Greenday's
"Basketcase."
What the audience may have
lacked in number they made up in
passion as they cheered the band
until the festival came to a close
shortly before 11 p.m.
Sunday morning closed the
festival with a gospel sing.
"The festival was a great success
despite the rain," Taylor said.
"It shows how dedicated the
fans are that they stayed out in the
rain to listen to their favorite
bands."

issues, accounting errors and
incorrectly allocated funds, which,
when taken into account, added
more than $600,000 to the deficit.
The school board is set to

at 7 p.m. That meeting will be held

A workshop session on financial
issues will be held prior to the
meeting.
The district could sec as much as
a nine percent cut in state funding
if current proposals are adopted on
the state level, according to
Howard.
If the cuts are that deep, the
district will most likely have to
resort to layoffs to make up
the difference. Howard also
noted.

Sprigle wants
a crowd?
Donna Sprigle, the 2008 Relay
For Life entertainment chair, has
the very daunting task of filling the
evening and morning of this year's
Relay with entertainment. She has
secured The Drive Home, an up-
and-coming pop rock band from
Florida International University in
Miami, and now she wants a
crowd!
On April 25, please plan to hear
the band's performances at 9:15
p.m. and 11:30 p.m., as well as on
Saturday, April 26, at 9 and 11 a.m.
Band members will mingle with
the crowd before and after, so
autograph hounds are welcome.
Sprigle has made sure the rest of
the hours of Relay will also be
filled with music and games--"all
intended to keep walkers awake,"
she says, reminding, "Relay For
Life is an 18-hour event to show
that cancer never sleeps."
What's happening
this week?
Churches show their support for
Relay For Life this weekend with a
yard sale, a talent show, a baked
potato lunch and an auction.
The yard sale will be held
Saturday at St. James Episcopal
Church from 8 a.m. until.
Organizers promise a must-see
collection of tools, household
items, linens and furniture.
The talent show is at Evangel
Christian Fellowship on Friday,
April 11, at 7 p.m. This church
doesn't know who will have more
fun: the performers or the
audience? Everyone is invited.

Levels linebacker


Bmount is making


impact for Ducks


Former Taylor County High
running back LaGarrette Blount
has turned some heads in Oregon
following the first week of spring
practice.
The 6-2, 235-pound junior
college transfer "absolutely leveled
linebacker Terrell Turner (239
pounds), and showed good burst
and good speed inside and outside,"
according to a blog in the
Oregonian newspaper.
"I like LaGarrette Blount," said
Duck Coach Mike Bellotti. "He's
in better shape than I thought he
might be. We brought him in
because we thought he could help
us, and I think he will."
Blount is vying to replace
Jonathan Stewart, who ran for an
I 1


Oregon record of 1,722 yards last
season as a junior. Stewart has
opted to forego his senior season
and is expected to be a first-round
NFL draft pick.
Blount had hoped to enroll in
school in January but had to delay
that a few months while he
completed an online course. He
arrived in Eugene fr the spring
term recently just a shade over his
playing weight of 230 pounds.
"I did a lot of running, Blount
told the Oregonian. "So I came in
in better shape than I thought I
would."
Blount completed his junior
college eligibility last fall as one
of the top rushers in the nation.
Numerous division one schools
sought the services of the 6-3
speedster (4.5 second 40-yard dash)
before he settled on Oregon.
Among them were Florida State,
Ole Miss and Memphis.
Blount rushed for 1,042 yards
on 178 carries in nine games last
season including six touchdowns.
He also caught eight passes for
144 yards and one TD.
In 2006, he played in eight
games and carried the ball 189
times for 1,250 yards and 12
touchdowns.
In four seasons at TCHS,
Blount accumulated 3,714 rushing
vards.

Ted Turner's son partners with FWC


Beau Turner, a powerful
environmenaist- is fighting for a
world "where children have every
opportunity to touch the face and
hear the voice of Mother Nature."
Turner, the son of Ted Turner of
CNN fame, has vowed to do all he
can to provide youngsters with
opportunities to explore nature and
the treasure trove of wonders it
offers. A solid step toward this
goal became a reality when he
formed a partnership with the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
this year with the opening of the
Beau Turner Youth Conservation
Center near Monticello. The
center, the first of its kind in
Florida, opened in March on 160
acres Turner has leased to the
FWC. The goal for the center is
to develop a stewardship ethic
among youth through programs
designed to develop their outdoor
skills and to instill an appreciation
and knowledge of the longleaf pine
ecosystem and wildlife
management techniques. Officials
with the FWC say Turner has
been involved in every step of
opening the center, which offers
free classes to youths.
Turner, 40, is described as
"hardly looking his age. Only in
sunlight can you detect a single
gray strand in his slightly shaggy
brown hair. His green eyes seem
always to be focused except when
he closes them in deep
concentration. His hands slice the
air for emphasis when talking
about his various ecological
projects."
.On Wednesday, April 9, some
of Florida's most powerful
Weightlifting

Ghent in

state meet
Taylor County High freshman
Steven Ghent has qualified for the
state weightlifting meet in the
199-pound weight class.
Ghent has been lifting an
.average of about 550 pounds in
recent competitions, according to
Coach Price Harris.
Two other Bulldog lifters just
missed qualifying. Brychoski
Jackson was 10 pounds short in
the 219-pound class and Chase
Duckworan would have qualified
but he got bumped because he
weighed slightly more than the
other qualifier.in. 119-pound class.


environmental legislators and
FWC commissioners will gather
at the youth center to hear Turner


share his philosophy on ecology
n&rid: community and to celebrate
the partnership between the FWC

The Local SCV 2nd Lt. Joseph Morgan Camp 2012 will hold
their annual Confederate Memorial Day service on April 12 at

Hamburgers and hot dogs will be provided following
the service and new camp officers will be sworn in.
The public is invited to come and attend.

and Turner.
"This center is just one of the
pieces of the puzzle," Turner said.
"There is no other real opportunity
for kids to sign up and do the
things they can do here. And
everything is free."
The activities at the center
include fishing in the pond,
practicing on the Olympic-style
archery and 3-D archery courses,
shooting on the rifle and shotgun
ranges, which use solar-powered
throwers and biodegradable targets,
hiking nature trails and viewing
wildlife.
"Kids don't know where food
comes from," Turner said. "I find
that frightening. We need to
educate them so they can see the
connection."
The Turner family is the largest
private landowner in the United
States, with nearly 2 million acres
in its holdings.

The Owen Family

MiCler
Since Joel's passing we have
truly been blessed by the support
from our family, friends and
community. This support continues
to be a source of enormous
comfort to us. Of course, we are
missing Joel very, very much. He
was so full of life, energy, jokes,
ideas, words and smiles (lots of
smiles). Our love for him will


always be in our hearts. But we
know Joel's spiiit is with Jesus
now and we will be reunited with
him in heaven. We know this
because he has given us this
assurance in His Word:
"Let not your heart be troubled:
ye believe in God, believe also in
me. In my father's house are many
mansions: if it were not so I would
have told you. And if I go to
prepare a place for you, I will
come again, and receive you unto
myself, that where I am there ye
may be also." II John 14:1-3
We extend our heartfelt thanks
to each and everyone for your
compassionate prayers and visits,
the gracious gifts, loving cards,
delicious food and beautiful
flowers. The outpouring of
love to us continues still and is
very sweet, loving and precious to
us. Many times we cry because we
are so touched by your
thoughtfulness.
For others who are grieving a
lost loved 'one: The question that
haunts me almost constantly is,
"Why!?" There are many questions
that will not be answered in this
world, only God can provide the
knowledge we seek. If you are
experiencing a devastating loss,
seek the Lord's help. Go to the
Word of God and cry out your pain
on Jesus' shoulder, he alone knows
exactly where you are. It is very
difficult sometimes to be patient
with yourself. The loss you have
experienced is very personal and
has become a part of who you are


now. The grief you are
experiencing will never
completely go away but it will
become less painful.
The mysteries of life are just
that, mysterious. The reality that
we don't have complete control of
'our' lives reveals just how
precious and fragile the gift of life
is. It's a very humbling realization.
Consider the poem, "The Plan of
the Master Weaver", trust in the
Lord and grow in faith.
"The Plan of the Master Weaver"
My life is but a weaving
Between the Lord and me,
I may not choose the colors,
He knows what they should be;
For He can view the pattern
Upon the upper side
While I can see it only
On this, the underside.
Sometimes He weaveth sorrow,
Which seemeth strange to me;
But I will trust His judgment,
And work on faithfully;
'Tis He who fills the shuttle,
And He knows what is best,
So I shall weave in earnest,
Leaving to Him the rest.
Not till the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly
Shall God unroll the canvas
And explain the reason why-
The Dark threads are as needed
In the Weaver's skillful hand
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern He has planned.
--Author Unkfiown

Thank you,
From the family of Joel Miller

City's 'curb appeal in



need of a make-over?


)Dear Editor:
Driving through town, I have
often cringed at the curb appeal of'
our city.
When traveling down 221'into'
the city, the first thing you see is
the old two-story building on the
right with the torn awnings.
Wouldn't it look nice with new
awnings? The buildings downtown
are in really bad shape and I totally
agree with the mayor on the fact
that we need to clean up.
i I have a couple of suggestions
that may help out. I have six years
pf property management
experience working with C or
IWer class properties such as
government housing and I have
workedd hard to make some ugly
~laies look good.
:The biggest improvement you
Oan make is uniformity. Firstly, we
have towels and sheets hanging in
iec nd story windows downtown.
oine on people, that has to go.
Everyone should have white mini
blinds on the second floors. If they
ae apartments, hang up mini blind
ior your tenants and the
community will thank you. The
iiiformity alone will make a big
difference.
Building owners should get
together and come up with a plan
on making the community look
better. What a great idea for The
"Downtown Association.
SSome building owners could
take a lesson from Ann Hodge's
i3ulf Breeze or Coldwell Banker's
offices, since they understand. It's
4all about curb appeal. In order to


attract businesses that bring jobs
with them, we as a town have to
,offer something 'back. We have to'
,maike. athi'b .': po riniunity' where,
people :'would want to live aid
conduct their business.
A lot of you probably think that
the city is taking away a freedom
of yours, but if everyone had used
common sense and not let the,
place rrun down so badly, the
council would not have to step in
like this. However, I am concerned
who is going to man this? Who's
going to watchdog this? Obviously
city ordinances haven't been
enforced for private home owners
within the city, Why would anyone
enforce them on the businesses?
There are homes in the city,
limits that don't have shingles on'
their roof, have metal junk and
shopping carts in their yards;
visible from the road. While, we,
are on the shopping cart issue,
there should be another rule to the'
proposed stated ordinance that if a'
business on 19 has shopping carts
out in front of them and they are,
not a shopping facility, .they must
get rid of them or pay a fine. I have
been looking at the same bunch of
carts for two weeks. -
This will put stop to it.,I had to
finee apartment residents $25 if"I
f found' ,their mail lying on .he
.ground around the mailboxes and:
pretty soon they didn't toss mail on
the ground anymore and I didn't
have to pick it up.
Sometimes -you have to hit
peoplein .the pockets before they.
get the message.


Another issue is the signage on
19, There re some really valuable
pieces; iof history :out there.
.Receqtly I went top:a Waterfronts
Florida meeting and one" of the
town managers wais theretand she
was so excited about the fact that
-they had preserved aand refinished
an old hotel sign. I was thinking
wo, n Perry we have.lots of the
old fluorescent' signs. This is
nostalgia,
SI would think that some of you
could afford to re-work pOe signs
and there are grants put there to do
it. That city manager got one, If
they all could light up at night on
.19, wouldn't it be so cool?
Everyone should take' the
initiative and .make; it a
community-wide effort.

Midweek Muddle


Shut the door


By SUSAN H. LINCOLN


At my house, the mosquitoes are all
but breaking the doors down.
"Shut the door!" we scream at the son
every 15 minutes.
"I haven't even opened it yet," he said
to me.
"Well, shut it right when you open it," I
suggest, and he stands there with it
open, while he processes that
information.
The mosquitoes, you see, cling to the
outside of the door, and when it opens,
they fling themselves into the interior of
our house. Then they begin to fly and
explore, and generally make themselves
at home, while attempting to extract
blood from all family members.
But if I think we've got it bad, all I have
to do is look outside at the poor dog
who is being stalked by mosquitoes.
She is weary of the aerial attacks and
bored by the buzzing.
When the dog and I walk in the
afternoons, we have have picked up our
pace as a survival technique. I flail my
arms and she swoops her tail as we cut
through clouds of mosquitoes in low
places.
You're welcome to visit our yard, but
repellent is necessary, and if you're
riding a bike, you should ride fast.
Actually, no activity can be pursued
leisurely. If you're trying to water
plants, you're an easy target: standing
there with a hose in your hands as
mosquitoes fly up from the mulch and
land on any legs they see.
I drenched myself--instead of the
plants--with all my swatting, which gave


me ample time to wonder about the
justice in this world. In the distance, a
carpenter bee drilled a hole in our
wooden house and slinky skink scurried
about on the stone walls.
It's no wonder I feel powerless.
Where are Purple Martins When you'
need one?
I now call Mosquito Control as if it:.
were Dial A Prayer. Every morning I give,
thanks for a new day, and check in with-
Mosquito Control.
"We're still here," I report, "but we're
hanging on by a thread. Can you send in
the calvary?"
"Thursday?!?!?" I repeat, not. sure we
will survive until then.
"We 'need the seven-day treatment," I
explain, forgetting that there are others
of you in the rural areas of Taylor
County who need pesticide in large
quantities.
I've emptied all the containers in our
yard which might hold water. We've
raked and mowed. The mosquito light
burns brightly, though our hope is not
as luminous.
But when we see the mosquito truck in
the neighborhood, we stoO and salute.
SThere's nothing more comforting than
the smell of poison.
I've lived without powe and water,
and now I'm bunking with mosquitoes.
So I'm ready to make a ceal with the
county: I'll relinquish my portion of the
flu vaccine for general di tribution, if
you'll just hand over the keys to the
mosquito truck to me.
And shut that door.

nation has 'obligation'


to protect servicemen


ISOYD
intinued from page 1
the Navy has been working to
, iafy potential victims of water
examination at Camp Lejeune.
ihe National Defense
orization Act passed by
gress and signed into law by
President in January requires
Secretary of the Navy to notify
t residents and civilian
loyees at Camp Lejeune of
possible exposure to
ated drinking water.
-R.ecently, Congressman Boyd
spoken with or been advised of
n different families in North
vda who are seeking medical
ds, birth records, and other
fi ation directly related to
r contamination at Camp
une. Tests show that drinking
r at Camp Lejeune was
itaminated with
loroethylene (TCE),


dichloroethylene (DCE)
tetrachloroethylence (PCE), and in
their degraded forms, benzene,
methyl chloride and vinyl chloride,
between 1958 and 1985. These
chemicals are found primarily in
industrial degreasing solvents, dry
cleaning solvents and fuels.
"We have an obligation as a
government and as a nation to
protect our servicemen and women
and all military personnel whether
they are stationed at home or
abroad," Boyd stated. "The health ,
and safety of our servicemen and
women must be a primary concern
of the Department of Defense. As
the subcommittee on Oversight
and Investigations examines this
issue,. I will continue to offer my
assistance to the subcommittee
and to strongly urge the
Department of Defense to comply
with all of the subcommittee's
requests for information in a
timely manner."


"It is an.open venue for original
artwork in all media done in good
taste in two and three dimensions.
All two and three dimensional
artwork must have on it youth
name, grade level (i.e.
kindergarten, first grade, etc.),
name of school or organization,
name of teacher, youth coordinator
or parent submitting artwork.
Please plan to deliver your artwork
to Forest Capital Hall from May I -
8. The hall hours are 9 a.m. to 5
p.m., Monday through Friday."

artwork throughout the Forest
Capital Complex.
"Wayne Martin, 2005 Florida

renowned Florida fiddler George
Custer. Martin was instrumental in
the designation of the Florida Folk
Festival's annual fiddle contest as
the state contest. The Taylor
County High School concert and
drum band, Madison Jazz Band
