U.S. 221 north of Perry is
scheduled to be totally closed by
the Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) beginning
Monday, April 28, at 9 a.m. for up
to three months to re-construct a
section of the roadway that is in
need of emergency repairs.
About a one mile stretch of U.S.
221 north of County Road 14 at
Shady Grove will be closed first.
Through traffic will be detoured
off U.S. 221 to either County Road
14, if northbound, or to County
Road 360 in Madison County, if
southbound.
The road will remain closed for
about a month while a section of
roadway is removed, According to
FDOT Public Information Officer
Gina Busscher. It will be replaced


with a new roadbed that includes
three layers of a special
geotechnical fabric and grid to
help keep the roadbed from
settling and sinking into the
"muck" underneath.
Once the section north of CR 14
is fixed, then work will switch to
about a mile long section just south
of CR 14, anticipated to begin
sometime in early June, Busscher
said.
U.S. 221 will again be closed to
all traffic from County Road 14
south for about two miles.
Northbound through traffic will be
detoured to County 'Road 361

Boys & Girls Club Day
Interest was high among 300 Boys & Girls Club members at the city park Friday when club
President-elect Evelyn Day and Buckeye plant manager Randy Dees drew names for prizes
during the "National Boys & Girls Club Day" celebration. Members of the Veteran's Park,
Jerkins, Steinhatchee 'and Live Oak clubs participated in the festivities which included lunch,
healthy lifestyle instruction, and playing on large bounce inflatables brought in for the
occasion.

Peace, understanding, cancer.
They arc concepts which are not
often linked together, but for
Nancy Turner, who was diagnosed
with ovarian cancer in late 2005,
peace and understanding have
helped her to face her cancer.
Turner, along with Marcia
Parker. is the honorary chair of this
weekend's Relay For Life event.
which is striking to raise more than
$75.000 for the American
Cancer Society and tfie fight to
find a cure.
While countless volunteers walk
shoulder-to-shoulder around the
Taylor County High School track
with the many local residents
whose lives have been touched by
cancer. Turner will be all over the
place, helping both as honorary co-
chair and as a member of First
Presbyterian Church's team.


She, however, will admit that
until recently, her time-consuming
job as a teacher did not allow her
the opportunity to take part in the
annual event.
"It wasn't until I was on medical
leave--for having cancer myself--
that I had time," she said.
Last year, the Presbyterian
Church team raised more than
$10,000. According to Turner,
much of the team's success can be
attributed to the "Toilet Fairy,".
whose neon pink toilet was
discovered in many area lawns
before the fund-raising was
finished.
It is her church family, along
with her friends, that Turner credits
with supporting her since her
diagnosis.
"I'm from Charleston, S.C., and
my husband is from Georgia,"
Turner said. "Of course we've been
here 30 years, but I've always kind


.of missed my family in Charleston.
"When I was diagnosed with
cancer, however, my church and
my friends--many of whom go to
my church--functioned as my
family.
"People have been incredibly
good to me. You just feel like you
need to give back."
The desire to give back not only
led her to take part in Relay, but
also to take her story on the road,
talking to local groups and clubs
about' early- detection of ovarian
cancer.
"I go through the symptoms and
they are so common, people
inevitably go through them and
believe they have all the
symptoms," Turner said.
Some of those symptoms
include pelvic or abdominal pain,
unexplained weight gain or loss

from Mississippi College School'

Williams seeks House seat


Mike Williams, a longtime
business owner from Madison, has
filed with the Florida Elections
Commission to become the next
State Representative from District
10.
Williams is seeking the
Republican nomination to be
decided on Aug. 26. Williams has
owned retail businesses in
Madison and Thomasville, Ga.,
since 1978 and is involved in many
business and community
organizations.
"Will Kendrick's shoes will be
pretty big to fill but I think we
need a representative that will
continue the fight for our values
and our families. We need to fight
to lower taxes and .keep
government from creeping further


into our lives and businesses. If
the good people of District 10 will
permit me, I'll go to Tallahassee
and be their voice," Williams
stated.
He said that his desire to serve
grows from a deep and abiding
faith that 'began as a child at home
and at Lee Methodist Church
where he was taught to worship by
his parents,. James and Betty
Williams. "That faith has provided
guidance and direction throughout
my life." In 1979 he married
Susan Newman of Greenville, the
daughter of Doris Newman and the
late Norman Newman. They have
been active in church all of their
lives serving as Sunday school

Voters face full slate of


local, state candidates

When voters go the polls in for the August primary, they will face not
only a slate of local offices, but also candidates in state and national races
that may feature some familiar names.
Two candidates from the Green Party will vie for a slot in the race for
the Congressional seat currently held by Allen Boyd (D).
Mark Clements and Steve Wilkie will meet in the primary with the
winner advancing to run against Boyd -in the General Election in
November. Robert Ortiz has also qualified as a write-in candidate for the
office.
Three Democratic candidates are running for the office of State
Attorney (Third Judicial Circuit): Todd M. Hingson, Robert.L. "Skip"
Jarvis and Alexander D. Prins. All three will be included on the primary
ballot in August. One candidate must garner at least 50 percent (plus 1) of
the vote in order to be declared the winner, Assistant Supervisor of
Elections Dana Southerland said. "If no one gets the required amount of
votes, then the top two candidates will advance to the General Election."
The same rule will apply to the three candidates seeking the open
judgeship (Group 4) for the Third Judicial Circuit: Christopher L. Craun,
Gregory Parker of Taylor County and Thomas E. Stone.
To date, the incumbent judges for Groups 6 and 7, Julian E. Collins and
Leandra G. Johnson, are unopposed. Also unopposed as of presstime
Tuesday was Public Defender Dennis Roberts.
At the state level, local resident Don Curtis is one of four candidates
seeking the Democratic ticket for the State Representative District 10 seat
being vacated by Will Kendrick. Also seeking the nod are Leonard L.
Bembry. Julie S. Conley and A.J. Smith.
The winner in the August primary will face Republican candidate Mhike
Williams in November
Senator Charles S. Dean.(R) will meet Suzan L. R. Franks (D) in the
General Election for the state seat.
Information about each candidate can be found on the state elections
Web site. The Primary Election will be held Tuesday, Aug. 26. The 2008
General Election will be held Tuesday, Nov. 4.

Shamrock drive
The Taylor County Middle School Student Council recently sold "Shamrocks" to raise money
for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The group of 20 young leaders collected $355.74
from students and staff at TCMS. The Muscular Dystrophy Association is a voluntary health
agency working to defeat neuromuscular diseases. More than one million Americans are
affected by neuromuscular diseases. Council members extended thanks to all who donated to the
drive.


Repairs will cost $2.8 million

back east to U.S. 221. Southbound
traffic will be detoured to County
Road 14 west to U.S. 19, then
south to Pisgah Road and east back
to U.S. 221.
The detour routes are about 16
miles long and will add about 10-
12 miles to each route depending
on whether the detour is north or
south of County Road 14,
Busscher said.
An emergency repair contract
was awarded March 28 by FDOT
to Anderson Columbia Company
of Lake City. The cost is $2.8
million.
"This is the worst case of
settlement in a roadway that the
FDOT has seenin some time," said
Bussdher.
The roadway was resurfaced in
2004 and a system was developed
to compensate for the muck but it
was done while traffic was
maintained on one half of the
roadway, she added. In the past
four years, the sections of concrete
placed under the layers of asphalt
have shifted due to unstable
material under the bottom or base
layers of limerock. The results are
cracking and drop-offs as the
pavement shifts toward the
shoulders of the road.
The new system includes


literally digging out up to two feet
of the roadbed and then layering
limerock with a woven geotextile
fabric, a layer of geogrid and
finally above the tack coat, placing
a layer of nonwoven geotextile
which resembles heavy felt,
Busscher said. It will be covered
with two different levels of
asphalt.


The project also incluazt
removing about 7,000 yards;,;
unsuitable material or dirt that-is-
underneath the present road aiy'
and replacing it with new materi'a'l.'
The detour route will be maikPd'i

Continued from page 1
liability claims and mental health
commitments. For some 20 years
he handled, as a part of his duties.
contraband forfeiture actions for
the Taylor County Sheriffs Office
and the Perry Police Department
forfeiting to the agencies monies
and properties used by criminals in
their felony crimes.
Based upon his business
background, in addition to his
other caseload, Jarvis was assigned
by the state attorney to handle
economic and white collar
crime, consumer fraud,
and environmental crime circuit-
.wide.
He developed and presents
programs to civic, fraternal and
religious organizations covering
identity theft and consumer fraud
to educate the public on how to
avoid becoming a victim.
He has prosecuted cases in all
seven counties of the Third
Judicial Circuit and has been
previously "cross-sworn" to handle
prosecutions for Statewide
Prosecutor Melanie Hines.
Jarvis has also, for the past 20
years, been an instructor for the
North Florida Community College


Law Enforcement Academy where
he teaches basic recruit classes to
law enforcement and corrections
officers as well as re-certification
and incentive classes for
experienced officers.
SHe said he holds a close bond
with his former students who are
currently serving in the areas of
law enforcement and corrections
around the state, many of whom
are employed with agencies here in
Taylor County and at Taylor
Correctional Institution.
Jarvis stressed three areas he
wishes to address by his
candidacy:
"First, the state attorney must be
open and accountable to the people
he represents. Any and all citizens
must be free to openly and
candidly speak with their state
attorney regarding matters of
concern to them."
Jarvis has a reputation for being
accessible to the public. He states
that while he may not be able to
disclose informatiQn or give the
answer they wish to hear, all
citizens should have access to their
governmental prosecutor.
"Second, as a prosecutor, the
state attorney must be law
enforcement oriented. There must
be a partnership with law


enforcement agencies, while
maintaining independence and
discretion, which is necessary to
make appropriate charging
decisions.
"Third, the state attorney must
be a person of integrity. Personal
interests or politics must never
take priority over his commitinent
to the people. The office belongs to
the people, not the elected
individual."
Jarvis has been married for 39
years to Pamela Manasco Jarvis
who works at Cheek and Scott
Drugs in Live Oak.
They have two daughters, Beth
Jarvis Cohen and Sara Jarvis
Patton, and five grandchildren.
He received an honorable
discharge from the United States
Navy.
"I helped to elect the current
state attorney in 1978. Now, after
30 years he is retiring and it is time
to elect a new state attorney. I
have served you as an assistant
state attorney for the past 24 of
those years. 1 now ask for your
support and your vote on Aug. 26
to elect me, Skip Jarvis, to be your
next state attorney."

Survivorship Chair Wendy

Honorary chairs Marcia Parker

and ongoing unusual fatigue.
She stressed that all women are
at risk and early detection is key in
improving the survival rate of
those diagnosed with the disease.
"I always thought I had a more
than average knowledge of
medicine. I did not have a clue
about ovarian cancer, not a clue."
Her goal, she said, is to raise the
awareness of ovarian cancer,
hoping one day to have it as well
understood as breast cancer is
today.
For more information about
ovarian cancer and its symptoms,
visit www.ovarian.com.
Despite her disease, Turner
remains positive and said the
enormous level of support shown
her has been overwhelming.
"What a blessing these two and
half years have been since I was
diagnosed with cancer. I know that
sounds absurd, but it's true. That's
especially why I got involved in
CSI."
CSI: Perry (Cancer Services and
Information) is working to "bring
the cancer patients of Taylor
County the services and
information they need to assist
them on the road from diagnosis to
recovery."
The recently created program
has partnered with area doctors
and some two dozen volunteers to
educate the community as well as
assisting patients in accessing
services available to help them
during treatment and recovery.
"I can't imagine going through it
alone," Turner said. "When I see
how good people have been to me,
I just can't imagine it."
Last fall, her efforts with Relay
as well as her work to educate
women about ovarian cancer
prompted Relay officials to award
her the Big Bend Area's Courage

Award.
Turner said she was taken by
surprise when she was given the
award during kick-off ceremonies
last fall.
"I didn't even know they had a
courage award," she said.
While she is still very grateful
for the award, she said it is not
courage that gets her through each
day, it is peace.
"I know people look at me and
think I'm courageous. That's not
how I usually am. I'm usually a
complainer and a whiner.
"Early on, when I learned the
diagnosis and prognosis, I said to
God, 'You need to take care of this,
because I can't.'
"I have always been a religious
person, but I was surprised just
how good a job He did to take it off
my shoulders."
Turner said that a particular
Biblical scripture from Philippians
has helped her handle the past
several years: "And the peace of
God, which transcends all
understanding, will guard your
hearts and your minds in Christ
Jesus."
"People think I have courage.
What I have is peace."

Sisters speak on sexual assault statistics


For the April meeting of the
Perry Woman's Club, sisters Debra
McGrcw and Elaine Sanders
presented what they called a "tag-
team" talk in observance of Sexual
Assault/Violence Awareness
Month.
McGrew,, who first started out as
a volunteer with Refuge House
here, is now region three director
serving Jefferson, Taylor and
Madison counties.
Sanders, who was a longtime
volunteer at the shelter in Perry,
currently acts as community
coordinator for Leon County's
Refuge House.
"Sexual assault is any unwanted
sexual attention; it can include
rape-- a crime of violence- as well
as incest, indecent exposure or
voyeurism," explained McGrew.
"Rape can be by a stranger, a date
or a marriage partner. The bottom
line: it is not the fault of the
victim."
Sanders reviewed myths about
sexual assault, refuting the belief
that "rape is only committed by
insane perpetrators....(hat is simply
not true." she said. "Rape can be
by a stranger, or an acquaintance.
It is very often by people you
know," she reminded.
She emphasized that it is not
necessary for a weapon to be
involved for a rape to occur,
suggesting that perpetrators often
use other methods of coercion--
fear being one, date rape drugs
accounting for others.

The future looks bright for
freshwater fisheries in Florida,
according to the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC).
Darrell Scovell, director of
FWC's Division of Freshwater
Fisheries Management, presented
an optimistic vision for Florida's
freshwater fisheries to
Commissioners at the FWC's
April 2008 meeting.
"This report is the result of an
ongoing effort to reach out to
Florida's citizenry to obtain their
input on problems and solutions
and to give them a voice in
managing their fishery resources,"
Scovell said.
The effort began with an online
survey completed in March 2005,
to which 1,500 people, mostly
anglers, responded. It was
followed by a series of six zone
summits scattered around the state
where fisheries biologists spoke
directly with concerned residents
about local and statewide issues.
The effort then culminated in a
roundtable meeting vith proactive
individuals representing various
groups, such as outdoor writers,
university professors, fishing
tackle manufacturers and retailers,
fishing tournament sponsors,
profesSifhal -fishing- guides and
others who hold a stake in the
future of Florida's freshwater
fisheries.
Scovell pointed out the
remarkable consistency between
the biologists' findings, the
surveys, zone summits and
roundtable group on the major
problems confronting freshwater
fisheries.
Five top issues emerged, and
strategies were developed to
address them.
1.Habitat issues -- aquatic
plants, water qualit) and water
quantity.
*Enhance interagency
coordination, especially with the
Department of Environmental
Protection (the lead agency on
most of these issues) and the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers.
*Mobilize local stakeholders and
anglers to identify issues and
participate in proactive activities.
*. Continue to work with FWC's
Aquatic Resource Enhancement
Section.
2.Human dimensions --
conservation* stewardship,
education, outreach, recruit/retain
anglers and volunteers.
*Educate youth and adults,
using best management practices


finale at Perry's Pace Field.
The victory improved the
Bulldogs' record to 15-9 for the


to emphasize their stewardship
role.
*Reach out to the public with e-
mails, popular articles and at
major events.
*Seek grants and partner
opportunities and engage the
roundtable group in these efforts.
*Proactively seek and coordinate
volunteers.
3.Fishing access -- developing
ramps and shoreline access for
powerboats, paddlers, waders and
shore or pier fishing.
*Identify priority areas.
*Coordinate with FWC's Law
Enforcement Boating Access
Section.
*Develop and implement a
long-term maintenance plan.
4.Regulation management --
developing scientifically-supported
regulations, evaluating them,
enforcing them and ensuring
appropriate penalties.
*Work through the public-input
process.
*Community focus with up-to-
date data.
5.Nonnative species -- fish,
aquatic plants and wildlife
introduced from other parts of the
world that represent biological
pollutants.
*Assist the AquaticSpccies
Coordination group with-sereniemng.
for nonnative fishes found in the
wild or those used for aquaculture
or sportfishing.
*Participate in research and
management discussions to focus
prevention and control efforts via
risk analyses.
*Assist with rapid response to
new discoveries.
*Increase public awareness.
Florida remains the "Fishing
Capital of the World." The
FWC's vision is to keep it that
way by steadily working with its
constituents and other
management agencies to ensure
quality, safe and sustainable
fishing opportunities. Florida's
recreational fisheries provided
more days of fishing enjoyment in
2006 than any other state in the
country (46.3 million versus No.
2 Texas with 41.1 million days).
So if you are ready to
contribute, feel free to contact the
FWC and give some input. One
way is to complete a survey (see
MyFWC.com/Fishing and scroll
down in the right column to "Take
the Survey"). Another way to help
conservation efforts and save you
money is to purchase a five-year
freshwater fishing license. There is
a special offer going on right now

After Taylor County, Madison
and Florida High ended the season
tied with 4-2 district records, a
draw-of-the-hat left the Bulldogs
facing Florida High in Tuesday's
first round. Madison, the top seed
after the draw, was slated to take
on Hamilton County (0-6 in
district) in the other first round
contest.
The winners will face off
Thursday in Madison for the
district title.
Last Thursday, the Bulldogs
used two big innings to stop
Wakulla. TCHS scored 5 runs in
the second and 4 in the fourth then

at the lead but came up one run
short.
The Bulldogs utilized three
pitchers in the contest. Derek
Miller pitched two scoreless
innings then gave up 3 runs in the
third. Nick Allbritton came on in
relief, giving up two hits while
striking out four and walking four.

Ethan Young came in the sixth
giving up one hit while striking
out one and walking one.
At the plate, the Bulldogs were
led by sophomore Charlie Johnson
who drove in three runs on two
hits including a double. Miller (2
RBIs) improved on his team-
leading batting average (.471) with
two hits in three trips to the plate.
Allbritton drove in a run with a
double while Kendall Thompson
(1 RBI), Will Hall (1 RBI) and
Wil Joiner each had one hit.
In addition to Miller's season
batting average of .471, several

Submitted by Relay For Life
There has been so much
excitement about "The Drive
Home" performing live at the local
Relay For Life Event Friday April
25, and Saturday, April 26.
A fresh, clean, positive group of
talented, smart young men with a
unique sound and infectious
melodies, this rising band brings a
lot to any event. All college
students at Miami International
University, they have found a way
and the time to perform free of
charge at 11 Relay For Life events
across Florida.
Several members of the Event
Committee and many members of
the community met three of the
band's members on March 11 at the
"meet & greet" held at Sonic
Drive-In Restaurant.
"We are so impressed with these
fine young men. They are friendly


Episcopal team) for nachos and
cheese, maracas and sombreros.
The "Knights and Maidens of
England" (4-H Home Schoolers
team) will have cotton candy,
candied apples and popcorn.
Pizza and Italian Creme Cake
will be available from Italy
(Taylor County Elementary School
team).
Holland (Evangel Christian
Fellowship team) will offer apple
flaps and chicken meatballs.
Bermuda (Taylor Coastal
Community Association team) will
be serving up "chocolate delight."

and approachable. We hope many
young people will come to Relay
with their friends. We hope parents
will bring their children to meet
them and see their show. Of course
the not-quite-this-young group
should come, too. There's
something for everyone," was the
sentiment of the Event Committee.
These young men are good role
models. First, they are all college
students (one is a Ph.D. candidate),
and education comes before the
band. A band member has
temporarily left the band to focus
on his education. Their advice to
young people is to "stay in school
and earn good grades."
They believe in giving and
helping others, and they practice
this. They donate their time and
their talents to help others. They
are performing free of charge at the
Taylor County Relay and 10 other


Visit Turkey (the Buddies
team) for turkey legs, chicken legs
and an assortment of baked goods.
Dinner will be served family-
style at the campsites of the Red
Hats (grilled chicken, baked beans,
potato salad, rolls and dessert) and
First Presbyterian Church (hot
dogs, hamburgers and Bratwurst).
Other activities for the young
and young-at-heart will include:
Miles' of Smiles Clowns will
offer face painting, balloons,
"Bling" and other "light ups."
The Keaton Beach Knitters
will have homemade scarves and


hats.
A group of Taylor County High
School teams will offer a variety of
activities.
"All of this, with great
entertainment mixed in, add up to
an evening and morning of fun for
everyone," Publicity Chair Cheryl
Gregory said.
"The Relay event is an alcohol-
free, tobacco-free and pet-free
event supporting the American
Cancer Society and a time to
remember loved ones who are
cancer survivors or who lost the
battle with cancer."


football fan packages (featuring
autographed team footballs), a
fishing trip, airplane ride and much
more.
The Ms. Relay Contest will
continue after the auction with
contestants answering a series of
questions.
"For many people, the most
touching part of Relay For Life is
the Luminaria Ceremony,"
Publicity Chair Cheryl Gregory
said.
"At 8:45 p.m., all walking and
activities will stop. The candles
lining the track will be lit,
providing the only light during this
time. Each in-honor bag has the
name of the cancer survivor on it
and each
in-memory bag has the name of a
loved one who lost the battle with
cancer."
Teams are still accepting orders
for luminaria; orders will also be
taken trackside.
At 9 p.m., the Ms. Relay Contest
returns with the crowning of the
winner.
Taking the stage at 9:15 p.m.
will be the much anticipated band,
"The Drive Home."
"These young men will entertain


until 11:30 p.m. They have a
unique sound that runs through
their music and will provide a good
show. They are performing free of
charge as their way of giving and
helping others," Gregory said.
A curfew announcement will be
made at 11:30 p.m. Anyone under
the age of 18 and not accompanied
by an adult, will be asked to leave.
Team members under 18
must have turned in a signed
participation form to remain after
11:30 p.m.
Midnight madness starts when:
the clock strikes 12 including a
Pajama Fashion Show, Scavenger
Hunt, Musical Chairs and Bedhead
Contest.
New this year is a garage sale,
which starts at 6 a.m.; coffee, juice
and a variety of breakfast items
will be available.
"The Drive Home" returns to the
stage at 9 a.m., performing until
11.
Closing ceremonies will start at:
11 a.m. "This is the time when:
team campsite awards, team
achievement awards and grand
totals will be announced."
A final lap around the track will
close the event.


for a cure


Relays in Florida. And they only
perform at non-profit events.
Many wonder how they are able
to do this..With the help of a
sponsor (Sandisk), and food and
lodging from the communities
where they perform, they are able
to perform free of charge. Don't
forget that Sonic Drive-In
Restaurant allowed the use of their
space for the March 11 "meet &
greet" and also donated a meal to
the band.
For the night of the Relay event,
Hampton Inn has donated lodging
for the band. Ware Oil & Supply
Co., Inc., donated $100 of gas for
the band. Such generous
community support makes 'their
appearance possible.
Both "The Drive Home" and the
Event Committee are very grateful
for the way this community has
stepped forward to help the band in


these ways.
Some inspiring things were said
at the "meet & greet." When told
by a middle school student how
"cool" they were, their response
was. "Thank you. But you know
who's really cool? People like
doctors who help others get better.
People like that are really cool!"
They believe in building self-
esteem in young people. Asked
many times for an autograph or
picture (which they gladly gave),
they requested autographs in
return. There was a banner where
each fan could write a message or
simply sign. "We want your
autograph so we will have
something to remember fi'om
today," was said by band members
many times.

Arbor Day: for more than



a century, a time to plant


By STAN SHEPARD
Florida Division of Forestry
One4tundred and 36 years ago,
in Nebklska, Arbor Day had its
beginning. On January 4, 1872,
Sterling Morton, a member of the
State Board of Agriculture, and
later governor of Nebraska,
introduced and secured the
adoption of the following
resolution: "that the 10th day of
April be especially set apart and
consecrated to tree planting in the
State of Nebraska and hereby
name it Arbor Day."
Statewide publicity was given
on that occasion, and more than
one million trees were planted on
the first Arbor Day in Nebraska..
Arbor Day became a recognized
celebration during the presidency
of Theodore Roosevelt. He made


conservation of natural resources
one of his main objectives. The
publicity by the press and through
the schools during those nearly
years benefited Arbor Day, and this
day was eventually observed
throughout the United States.
Friday, April 25 (the last Friday
in April), is the official national
Arbor Day, a time to plant.
Whether you plant a shade tree or a
fruit tree, whether you plant a
forest or a single tree, each and
every tree which is planted stands
as a living reminder that we are
stewards of the land.
The citizens of Florida had their
first Arbor Day celebration in
1886. For many years Florida had
two Arbor Days -- one observed by
the public schools, and the other by
the State Federation of Garden

Clubs. In 1945. the Florida
Legislature adopted the third
::JE:ray,,iin January as Florida's
official Arbor Day.
Florida's Arbor Day observance
is one of the earliest in the country.
We take advantage of the cool
weather and dormancy of the trees
for planting during January and
February. Trees can be planted and
moved to new locations with the
best chance of surviving transplant
s;ock during these months.
If you have a need for trees they
may be purchased from
commercial nurseries and garden
centers in the area. Trees grown in
containers in soil medium around
the roots are best to plant now
because the trees are growing and
no longer dormant.
What do trees mean to Florida?
The forests of Florida are among
the most valuable assets Floridians
have. Trees are a renewable
resource, a unique wealth.
Florida's forests provide more than
5,000 products and by-products,
support a $16.5 billion dollar
industry and provide 133,000 jobs.
This economic value is important,
as well as the human values and
priceless benefits that we receive
from the forests.
There are many ways in which
trees can substantially improve our
environment. Through the
marvelous process of
photosynthesis, trees take on
carbon dioxide and return pure
oxygen 'to the atmosphere. Trees
also function as filters by
absorbing and collecting air borne
pollutants, such as smog, smoke,
odors, and dust.
Trees planted in rows around
homes or in urban areas can serve
several functions. Trees as
windbreaks can protect homes
from the full force of damaging
w vinds. Rows of trees planted
along a busy highway can
effectively reduce high noise
levels. A screen of green and
growing trees can shield unsightly
areas.

President, Main Street Perry
Main Street Perry is alive and
well and is really just getting
started again with a totally new
board of directors and almost all
new members. We are all really
excited about the prospect of
beautifying and revitalizing our
historic downtown and continuing
some of the terrific programs
previous boards have started.
We are in the process of
contacting the vacant sore owners
downtown for permission to create
attractive window displays
featuring current events as well as


the history of the city in photos and
historic documents. We're also
contacting store owners to have the
downtown murals repainted. Main
Street Perry will be working with
the Downtown Perry Association
planning the December Snowfest
and many other events for the
downtown area. Above all, right
now--we need your help and
support. We still have room on the
hoard of directors and still need
members. Committees ire forming
for various activities and just a
tew hours of your time can
make a world of difference to
our city. Main Street is a


federally recognized tax-exempt
organization and is eligible for
grants for such things as
beautification projects and various
other funds that become available
from time to time. However, the
success of Main Street depends
largely on volunteers and local
fund-raisers. Main Street Peri-'
monthly meetings will be held the
first Thursday of the month, with
committees meetings throughout
the month. Monthly Main Stree$
101 basic training is available
daytime or evenings upon request.

Midweek Muddle


The Thrill of Victory,

The Agony of Defeat
'By SUSAN H. LINCOLN T;


With dictionary in hand, I'm going to
march myself into the corporate offices of
ESPN and insist that spelling bees be added
to the station's regular programming line-up
because they qualify under the heading,
"The Thrill of Victory, the Agony of Defeat."
The school "system's" 2008 Spelling Bee
was held last week, with 25 students
"thirsty" for the win.
Eli Grambling's "theory" on winning
proved true, and he zoomed past the other
24 for a trophy and S50 in cash. What a
"soldier" of spelling!
In round one, he had to deal with a
"cousin" who had "deceived" him into
believing that his "devotion" could be
"gauged" by his "million" acts of kindness.
In actuality, he "discovered"--after thorough
attempts at "examining" the issue--that this
relative was a "horrible" impostor, "hastily"
attempting to "launch'" a notable scheme to'
"damage" his performance.
Not to be outdone, Eli chose to be
"grateful" for the good parents he had and
the "example" they had set for him. He gave
up opportunities for a "hamburger,"
"console" speakers and even a "cruise" so
that he could remain true to the "patient,"
"spiritual" leadership which had been
modeled for him. His passion was "ignited"
by his belief that the ill-intended "agenda"
should be thwarted. So he "thumbed" his
nose at defeat and declared victory.
Eli wasn't the only one struggling with the
thrill of victory, or the agony of defeat.
Second-place winner Kinzi Mattingly was a
petite "version" of a sports hero--a' "portrait"
of enthusiasm, whereby she "engaged" the
audience as she used the correct "vowels" to
spell "governor," "crucify" and "elevator."
Yes, as the "beautiful" young female in the
trio of winners, she "neither" stumbled or
balked, but "pioneered" her way through the
"mystery" of letters, "relying" on those she
had in "storage" in her brain to finish 10
rounds, before falling victim to a word she
can surely spell, "utensil." She was the
complete "package" in a "triangle" of
spellers, who resisted the urge to "shriek"
when the right letters were "scarce."
Miraj Patel, however, didn't go down
without a "fierce" battle, and many
successful "escapes" from the less than
"lyrical" sound of Judge Flora Woodfaulk's
bell. His "genius" at spelling is obviously not
limited to topics which speak of "magical"
"legends" or other stories of "fiction"
entrenched in "mystery" which are related in
"lectures" from English classes. No, Miraj
loved getting the word "science" and would
have loved to "explore" that topic more, but
this year's words "relied" "heavily" on
adjectives so that- spellers could worry
about "humble," "innocent" and "plentiful."
He would have much preferred a "volcano,"
"liquid" nitrogen, the inner workings of an
"engine," a "sailor's" nautical maps or a
"partial" representation of the solar system.
Held in the "library" of Taylor County


Middle School, you will note that few of thel:
words were five-"vowel" "diagrams" of
horror. InsteAd, they were "typical" words
for any day with Principal Paul Dyal and-.
Assistant Principal Kiki Puhl: "Neither" run.
in the halls nor hide in the "shadows," these,
administrators would suggest. Instead,,
remember the "ability" you possess and
demonstrate that in this final "semester" of:.
the 2007-08 school year. Exercise "cautio$"
while playing sports or navigating the
"traffic" in the halls. Also, don't "bother"
your teachers and certainly don't "quarrel'.:
with your deans, and try not to be "absent..":;.
Instead, "plunge" right into your studies--
each day, remembering that the "route" to-
success is smoother if you put forth the
right "amount" of effort, paying "tribute" to6'
the natural talents you possess, until the'
Sfinal.,"minute" of the school day.
i' t'''perlnfendent of Schools Oscar Howard"
Jr. "represented" the entire district when he
"searched" for the right words to cure the
"peculiar" fears of each "independent"
competitor--his "clients" for the day. He
admitted that there was no real departure
from such worry, but he could "foresee"
their success as they "obliged" the
pronouncer, Chris Olson, by "mechanically"
spelling "dentist" and "nozzle" and
"junction."
The "bulletin" for this event had the:
spelling bee "symbol" on the cover, with a
"bushel" of contestants listed. No animals..
were allowed to participate--not a "parrot,"
or a "pigeon," or a "turtle" or a "jaguar" or an.
"eagle" or an "elephant," or any other
"mammals" of "mistaken" identity for that-
matter. Your "height" nor "health" didn't
matter; you were assigned a "numeral" and
asked to be "resourceful" about your,
"options."
So if you're thinking "disease" could be an,
easy word to spell, or "hostess" or "wrinkle,"
remember again that for this event--or tfie
"regional" one, to be sure--words are more
frightening on a stage than in a "closet-h'
You have to be willing to survive a "variety'L-
of unfamiliar words and hope yoq,;
remember the final "n" on "autumn."
The looks of horror and guilt "multiplied"i
as the 40 minutes passed by, but "similar"-:
events have ended this way: -with 25
"different" students finding their way.:
through a "large" "quantity" of verbs and
nouns, in order to "nourish" their need for
success. Three win. Twenty-two others
represent the "majority" in the country--
people from "palaces," "prairies,"
"industries" or "cultures" who have
"coupons" and "receipts" in their purses, and.
"plywood" and "engines" in their trucks, b1ut
can't remember if "optical" ends in "al" or
"le."
Spelling in the quiet of your home is one
thing.
Spelling for an "audience" requires
courage and preparation.
ESPN should know this.


Susan H. Lincoln recently published her first book, "When Mimosas Bloom," a collection of 55 of her favorite newspaper-
columns. Copies of the book can be purchased online at Amazon.com.

Main Street: a 4-point approach


MAIN STREET
Continued from page 2
The Main Street Four-Point
approach:
Design involves improving
the downtown's image by
enhancing its physical
appearance--not just the
appearance of buildings, but also
that of street lights, window
displays, parking areas, signs,
sidewalks, promotion materials
and all other elements that convey
a visual message about the
downtown and what it has to offer.
Organization means building
cooperation and consensus among
all the groups that play roles in the
downtown bankers, civic groups,


government, merchants and
individual citizens to ensure that
the Main Street program benefits
from a community-wide vision of
the future.
Promotion involves marketing
the downtown's unique
characteristics to shoppers,
investors, new businesses, tourists
and others. Effective promotion
creates a positive image of
downtown through retail
promotional activity, special
events and ongoing programs that
build positive perceptions of the
district.
Economic restructuring means
strengthening the existing
economic base of downtown
while diversifying it. Economic


restructuring activities include
helping existing businesses
expand, recruiting new businesses
to provide a balanced mix,
converting unused space into
productive property and
sharpening the competitiveness of
downtown merchants. By
strengthening the downtown's
economy, communities are able to
support the ongoing use of historic
commercial buildings, preserving
unique community assets.

ago and have a business in Perry.


Forests offer an escape from daily stress


ARBOR DAY
Continued from page 2
Several trees properly placed on
the south and west sides of your
home can function as a natural air
conditioner to cool your home in
the summer. One tree can produce
the. cooling effect of several


average room air conditioners.
Trees do this by providing shade
and absorbing and reflecting solar
radiation.
A stand of forest trees provides
benefits for both man and wildlife.
A forest stand is the natural home
of deer, squirrels, birds and other
woodland dwellers.


For many people, forests
symbolize havens and food for
wildlife.
For many others, forests can be a
tranquil place. A pleasant stroll
through a lovely wooded area can
provide a soothing retreat from the
crush and press of the workaday
world.
