In attempted murder case





Judge recuses self from trial


In an abundance of caution and
"to prevent any appearance or
perception of impropriety," Circuit
Judge James Roy Bean has recused
himself as trial judge in the Alexis
Manning case.
Manning, 25, is one of two
suspects charged with attempted
murder in relation to the armed
robbery and kidnapping of a night-
shift employee from Wal-Mart in
October 2007. Maurice Flowers,



Bethea will


not seek


re-election

Taylor County Commission
Chairman Clay Bethea announced
Tuesday that he will not seek re-
election to his District 3 seat.
"[ would like to take this
opportunity to thank you for
allowing me to serve you these
past years. I am humbled by the
trust you have placed in me and
count it a privilege to have been
one of your county
commissioners," he said.
"After much thought and prayer.
I have made the decision not to run
for re-election. I feel the time
spent serving the county has been
worthwhile, but I also realize that
time with my children is limited.
"I have tried my utmost to make
fair and honest decisions for
Taylor County. I have a sincere
love for my hometown and hope to
see it-continue to grow in the best
possible way. On behalf of my
family, I wish to extend our

Last week, Assistant Public
Defender Fred Castleman Jr. fildcl
a motion to have Bean recused as
trial judge citing Manning's
concern that she would not
S"receive a fair trial or sentence h'y
the court in her two cases."
(Manning faces court cases for
both the new attempted murder and
kidnapping charges as well as a
hearing on violation of probation.)


As grounds for the motion,
Castleman related that Bean had
presided over the sentencing
hearing involving Manning which
took place in March 2000. At that
time, Manning entered a plea of
nolle contendere to lesser charges
of robbery with a deadly weapon
(not a firearm), attempted second
degree murder (aggravated
battery) and robbery while armed
with a deadly weapon that was not


a firearm--all stemming from an
unrelated, armed robbery of
convenience story clerk.
Under that plea agreement, an
additional charge of armed robbery
with a firearm was dismissed.
(That charge was tied to an
incident, where Manning robbed a
motel clerk at gunpoint. When
caught, she confessed to both the
convenience store and motel
robberies.)


For those offenses, Manning
received a split sentence--a
concurrent sentence of 107 months
in the Department of Corrections,
followed by 10 years of probation.
Judge Bean presided over that
sentencing hearing and, according
to Castleman's motion, "stated at
the time of the defendant's
sentence that she was a 'disgrace to

One injured
A three-car chain-reaction crash left one man injured Monday afternoon. The driver of the vehicle caught in the middle of
the "sandwich crash" was transported from the scene by Doctors' Memorial Hospital EMS. Assisting were units from the City
of Perry Fire Department and Perry Police Department. The crash occurred on Jefferson Street, two blocks north of the
Highway 27 intersection.

Dennis has competition for school board seat?

election in 1988, longtime School
Board representative Kenneth

election, another candidate has


come forward for the seat.
Shelby G. Gibson was one of

Elections office, seeking seats on
the school board, soil and water

Florida Gas Transmission is
proposing to expand its natural gas
pipeline system to meet the'
growing energy needs of the Gulf
Coast and Florida. The project
includes modifications to the
compressor station in Taylor
County on Pisgah Road as well as
some new pipeline construction in
and around the county.
The company will hold an open
house in Perry on Monday, April
21, from 6:30 p.m. until 8 p.m. at


the Chaparral Steak House on U.S.
19.
Natural gas is the primary fuel
for new electric generation plants
and most of the natural gas
consumed along the Gulf Coast
and Florida is used for electric
generation, according to
information provided by FGT.
The Phase VIII Expansion
will increase Florida Gas
Transmission's delivery capacity
into Florida by up to 1 billion cubic


feet per day. The additional
capacity provided by the Phase
VIII Expansion will provide
enough natural gas to power an
estimated 1 million homes. daily.
The project consists of adding
580 miles of pipeline in Alabama,
Mississippi and Florida with
approximately 450 miles built
parallel to existing pipelines. The
project will add approximately

How do schools compare



on per-student spending?


In a comparison to six other
Florida school districts of similar
size and economic circumstances,
the Taylor County School District
has one of the best student-to-
instructional staff ratios...but it
also has one of the highest utility
costs per student.
These are just two of numerous
comparisons found in a lengthy
report given to district officials
from the Florida Association of
District School Superinltendents
last week.
The T'aylor County School board
received the report during a special
meeting held Thursday afternoon.
They were expected to further
discuss the report during a finance
workshop Tuesday evening in
Steinhatchee.
District officials requested the


report after preliminary audit
findings -for the 2006-07 school
year showed the district had a more
than $1 million deficit entering
into the current year.
The report compared' Taylor
County to districts in Madison,
Holmes, Bradford, Gilchrist, Baker
and Union counties.
For regular programs, Taylor
ranked second with $5,687 spent
per pupil during the 2005-06
school year. Only Madison was
higher among the compared
districts.
For at-risk programs, Taylor,
along with Gilchrist, were well
above the other counties in
spending per student with $12,978
and $13,224 respectively. Holmes
County was third with $5,712 per
student.


For exceptional student
education (ESE) programs, Taylor
was in the middle with $8,595
spent per student. Baker County
led that group with $9,653.
For vocation programs, Taylor
County almost doubled the other
districts on per-student spending
with approximately $12,000.
Educational spending was not
the only item compared in the
report.
For utility costs, which included
electricity and natural gas, Taylor
County was the second highest in
expense-per-student at $332.66
behind Gilchrist, based on 2006-07
numbers. Taylor's cost was $65
higher per student than Madison.
which was in third place and $137

Stabbing victim's daughter


says: 'Angels Do Exist..'


To her daughter, Tonya
LaFuente, 40, is an angel walking
among IuS.
To others, she is an example of
courage in the face of
unimaginable circumstances.
LaFuente was the victim of a
violent kidnapping and armed
robbery in October 2007. Given
only a 10 percent chance to live,
she overcame those odds--but
recovery continues to be a day-by-
day journey.
According to a close
family friend, LaFuente is.
bolstered by the support of her two
children and a network of relatives
and friends.
Her daughter, Caitlin LaFuente,
wrote the following speech as a
school project:
Angels Do Exist
"Do angels walk among us? I
would like to think so. My mom is
Tonya LaFuent. She was the one
who was kidnapped, stabbed 27
times, beaten and left for dead in
the'woods. While laying there she
said angels were all around her.
Believe it or not--she was
paralyzed arid unable to see yet she
got back in her truck and drove a


stick shift hack to Wal-Mart.
"To see my mom other than a
miracle would be a mistake. After
two rehabilitation hospitals and
continuous therapy she still can't
feel her legs. She walks by
concentrating on moving her right
leg and having the left leg follow
(her spinal cord was cut in three
places). It is truly by her faith that
my mom is able to do even the
smallest of things that all of us take


for granted.
"My mom says, 'You have to
have faith.' She was not supposd
to live--given only a 10 percgrit
chance to make it. My m.imi
proved to me God and angels do'
exist. To those who don't believe,
how would you know if you saw
an angel? Well, in my eyes, just
look around and see my mom---4'h
she has proven to be a miracle ailhd
one of God's angels." .

society'."
Manning was 17 vyeair old at the
time.
!Castleman's motion continued,
"The state has made no plea offer
in this case. It is anticipated that
this'will be a jury trial and a ruling
as to whether she materially
violated conditions of her
probitionary case.
"The defendant asserts that a
reasonably prudent person would
be in fear of not receiving a fair
and impartial trial and subsequent
sentencing on the two cases based
on the court's previous
statement..."
In his ruling on the motion April
10. Bean found that the motion did
not"nmeet procedural requirements
and that the alleged bias/prejudice
was based solely on prior
ruli gs...and that "her allegations
ail~~ ely conclusory in nature."

;.;,'


filed in accordance with
procedural requirements would be
to encourage 'judge shopping'...the
allegations of bias here are not
sufficient to support a motion for
disqualification. The motion is
procedurally deficient because it is
not sworn nor timely filed.
"Accordingly, it is ordered and
adjudged the petition's motion is
denied..."
However, Bean further ordered
that "the above denial
notwithstanding, the undersigned
(Bean) does, on his own motion,
recuse himself from any further
participation in these pending
matters. This voluntary recusal is
done to prevent any appearance or
perception of impropriety."
A new judge will be assigned to
the case by the chief judge of the
Third Circuit.
A jury trial in the case is
currently set for June.
The second suspect, Flowers,
has a pre-trial hearing slated April
24.
The victim in this latest case was
forcibly kidnapped at knife-point
Irom an employee area outside
Wal-/Mart shortly after taking a
break around I a.m. Friday, Oct.
12. 2007.
The two suspects made her drive
to an ATM at Citizens State Bank
and withdraw money from her
account. She was then forced to
drive to a wooded area off Bacon
Street where she was then beaten
and stabbed more than two dozen
times.
Left for dead, she was able to
drag herself back into her vehicle
and drive back to Wal-Mart where
EMS and police.units responded
for assistance.

The Taylor County Small Business Outreach Center, housed at the Chamber of
Commerce, will hold a Small Business Loan Opportunities workshop on May 22,
from 6-8 p.m.
Guest speakers will be Percy Goodman, loan officer with Community Enterprise
Investments Inc.

in loans to small businesses in Florida arid has helped to create 578 new jobs in

number of full-linle eCmployees
between lihe seven districts. ,
"While 'Taylor County -is sllffed
Lore leanly in terms of school
administrators and Taylor stal'fs
little more richly on district
administrators, the real difference
shows up in the instructional staff
to student and the non-instructional
staff to student ratios.
"Taylor is second from the
lowest in the number of students
per instructional staff (11.8
students per instructional staff).
Only Union is lower with a 10.6
ratio.
"Taylor is the lowest in the
number of students per non-
instructional staff. Taylor has 11.8
students per non-instructional
staff. Not one of the comparison
districts staffs so richly. The next
nearest ratio is Union with 14.6
student per non-instructional slaff.
The district with the fewesi pupils
per non-instructional stalT member
is Baker, with 19.8 to I ratio."
The report also pointed out that
while enrollment has dropped
every year but one since the 1999-
2000 school year (3,611 students in
99 to 3,076 students this year), the
number of non-instructional staff
has increased from 219 to 246
during.that time.


"As a result. the ratio of students
per non-instructional staff has
decreased from 15.7 to 11.8 to 1. In
other words, Taylor may be hiring
more stalT than enrollment
warrants." the report said.
In other comparisons in staffing,
Taylor had the lowest average
experience among its teachers,
according to 2005-06 figures.
Taylor teachers had a average of
9.8 years of experience, while
Bradford has the highest with 25.6.
On the other hand. Taylor was
second behind Holmes in the
percentage of its teachers with
advanced degrees. 29.6 percent.
In socio-economic comparisons,
58.2 percent of Taylor's students
were eligible for free or reduced
lunches in Ihe 2006-07 school year.
This was a increase of 10.5 percent
over the 1997,98 year. Taylor had
the second highest percentage
behind Madison, which had 72.9
percellt of its students eligible.
As for transportation costs,
Taylor has the highest total

Young led the 'Dogs at the plate
going 2-3. Allbritton was 1-3
with a double, Kendall Thompson
recorded the lone RBI with a
double and Zach Knowles was 1-1.

City resident 'outraged' by


treatment of family home


Dear Editor:
This letter is to address the
picture featured on the front of last
Friday's newspaper, with the
caption" a house on the comer of
Lafayette and Calhoun streets was
burnt to the ground today in a
continuing clean-up effort by the
City of Perry."
First, let's discuss the fact that
the City of Perry only enforces
certain codes and ordinances on
select individuals. It, is basically
who you know and who your
friends are as to how you are
treated. There must be hundreds of
properties in this city that have not
received any threatening letters or
demands that their property be
cleaned up to the specifics of the
city "ordinances" or the City of


Perry will do the clean-up
themselves and then have the legal
right to put a lien on the property.
The City of Perry did not burn the
house located on that property for
free. It was paid for by the owners
of the property after an extensive,
time consuming and costly
stripping of the house of all
furniture, bedding, wiring and
shingles. Even the trash and
garbage disposal was contracted
through a private company
because the city manager
explained that they (City of Perry
personnel) could in no way help
remove or dispose of any trash
associated with the property.
Second, let's discuss the fact that
some misinformed members of the
community have been found


sifting through and removing
bricks, lumber and miscellaneous
items from the rubble left on the
property, after being told by certain
city employees that they could take
anything they wanted off the
property since that just leaves less
for them to have to haul off later
(hauling off debris left from the
burn being part of the negotiated
price of the burn).
Let's consider the fact that I
grew up in that house, spent 18
lovely, peaceful years in that
house. It is heartbreaking to see
strangers sifting through what was
once a happy and loving home to
my family.
I am enraged and furious as to

temporary insanity I eventually indulged.
Fortunately, I didn't even know about.this
ordeal with the flat tire until the next, day
when she was on her way to buy a new one,
fully prepared with paperwork which
showed that her tires were still under
warranty.
I bragged on how responsible and capable
she was. I assured her Life would get better
(and mumbled under my breath, "before it
gets worse again.")
It got worse pretty quickly by the next
phone call which explained that all four tires
had dry-rotted and needed to be replaced. I
don't know how that's possible, but the
service tech thought that instead of being
inquisitive, she should be grateful because
since, the tires.were only two years old, she
would get each for about $10. What a deal.
But then you've got to throw in labor, etc.
"So it's the week of your birthday," I said.
"Alid I'm buying tires," she said.
Welcome to the Real World.
On Monday, I thought the Real WAorld
needed a little embellishment so I
determined to send the birthday girl some
flowers. They traditionally look and smell
better than new tires.
"You can promise me same-day delivery?"
I questioned.
"You realize that means the flowers must
get to her by 4 p.m. for she works at a
school?" I challenged.
"I'd rather they get there before lunch," I
suggested.
"They must be beautiful,". I insisted.


truth.
I reminded myself, "Be loving and kind,"
but then I was placed on hold for seven
minutes, before I had to hang up. On my
second call, I landed on hold for another 9
minutes. Even though I liked the,"hold"
music, I found the hospitality to be less than
desirable. Then I found a real human being
to decapitate verbally.
"Listen," I said to the female voice on the
other end of the phone. "My daughter is 300
miles away from home; this is her first job;
she bought four new tires with her birthday
money. I need these flowers to get to her,
and I was assured yesterday of same-day
delivery. In fact, I think I paid extra for it--
bui we'll talk about that in a minute. Now,
must I drive six and a half hours in order to
make this delivery happen?"
"No ma'am" is about all one can say, and
she said that several times, except for a half-
dozen apologies which she threw in at no
extra charge. "We'll take care of "it...I
promise."
I didn't say, "You'd better," but I wanted to.
In fact, even before I launched into my
tirade, I knew I shouldn't.
But I did take great pride in stopping short
of threatening to assassinate the delivery
person.
I took pride in what?
I am obviously evil and need to be
destroyed; but don't worry, it appears that
I'm doing a fine job of it all by myself.,
By the way, the flowers? They were lovely.
The tires? They were a good deal.
The birthday? It was grand.
Don't you just love a happy ending...even
if you shortened your life by six years to get
it?
