first envisioned, the cost would
rise to $4.5 million, requiring an
additional $2.1 million.
"This is an investment in our
future," said Commissioner Mark
Wiggins. "I would like to see the
whole project done somehow."
"Whatever we build, I want it to
be top quality," Commissioner
Malcolm Page said. "I think the
soccer fields out there present a
good light on the community.
Whatever we do, I want to do it
right."
Several commissioners, as well
as County Administrator Jack
Brown, expressed concern over the
current economic situation in
Florida, coupled with reduced
revenues resulting from January's
property tax reforms.
"This is a real period of
uncertainty," Brown said.
"We need to keep adequate
reserves," Page added.
Commissioner Clay Bethea
expressed concern over continuing
to put funds into the project after
the current construction was
completed.
"Twenty-five percent of the
county's taxes come from
Steinhatchee," he said. "I've got a
community dying because they
can't get into the water.
"We can't take another eight
years and then work on a boat
ramp for Steinhatchee."
"I'm not sure money will solve
that problem," Page said, referring
to permitting issues the county has
been experiencing with the
proposed boat ramp site.
"Two million dollars would,"
Bethea said.
"Perhaps, but I want to finish an
eight-year project first," Page said.
Page then motioned to move
forward' with the conceptual plan
with the west quad and take the
additional funds out of reserves.
Commissioner Rudolph Parker
seconded.
The proposal was approved in a
4-1 vote, with Wiggins voting
against.
He said he supported the project,
but added, "I want the whole
thing."
Once a contract is signed with
Worth Construction, work on the
project should begin almost
immediately.

meeting and dinner.
There were approximately 150

Greg Parker of Perry, who has
represented the Third Circuit Bar
as its Board of Governors

Mystery Dinner ends with a theme:

when you get lemons, make lemonade


I love mystery books. I even
love mystery questions. But
"Mystery Dinners" make my
brows furrow and lips tighten.
Blue Creek Baptist recently had
a mystery dinner. It may be hard to
explain, but it is so funny to
remember. The guests, Peggy and
Dick Cane, Larry and Kathy Bass,
Rinda Denson and- her parents,
Naomi and Phil Siacable, Robert.
Sadousky, Pat and Elmer Coker,
Pastor Adrian Land, Betty and
Tommy Mauldin, Donna and
Connie Mack Sullivan, Sandy and
Brad Beach, Melissa and Danny
Hill, Nick Herbert, Jesse Davis and
Brian Johnson, all of the Keaton
beach area, were escorted with a
menu to a very long table which
was arranged purposely so the
couples could see each other.
Guests were told this was going
to be a four-course dinner. There
were five choices in each course.
Sounds easy enough, but as the
unaware guests sat down and
began choosing Courses, the fun
began. The choices on the menu
included items such as Date's
Treat, Ocean Waves, Scotch
Delight and Mud Slide.
The kitchen chefs and workers,
David and Laura Miller and their
daughter Debbie Seagrove, were
just as hilarious picking and
choosing menu items from a
master list which converted the
- choices to actual dishes for the
courses. There was some serious
deciphering going on in that
kitchen. For example, Date Treat
happened to be a spoon. Ocean
Waves was water; Scotch Delight
was potato salad and Mud Slide
was chocolate cake. As you can
tell, some guests might get four
items to eat, but no eating utensils
or napkin.


My beach comrades are very
ingenious, however, and some
merely broke off the ridge of their
Styrofoam plates and dipped up
their Jell-O salad or other entrees
with hardly a moment's
inconvenience. Kathy Bass was
one of those creative geniuses.
Danny Hill tried his best to keep
his three courses, which were
knife, fork. and spoon, thinking
he'd use them for future entrees.
Robert Sadousky wanted, his
skewer toothpick for future entrees
too, but guests had.to finish each
course and their plates were taken.
For Pastor Adrian's first course,
he chose ham, potato salad, celery
and corn. I believe he used his
celery stick as an eating utensil.
We did have a great time laughing
at each other and when that fun
was over, the hosts served buffet
style, so all guests could eat- to
their hearts' content, with plenty of


utensils and napkins. Diane
Richey, Earl Seagrove, husband to.
Debbie, and I were the
waiter/servers. At the end of the
evening we were worn out from all
the running back and forth, and the
laughing. It was fun to be in on the
secret.
The guests of our beach area do
love each other and get along well,
but for a second or two I sensed a
bit of frustration rising to the
surface. Having been through a
similar mystery dinner, I
remember the frustration at getting
served a steak and not having a
knife or fork to cut the meat with.
You can get a little miffed.
Then you soon begin thanking
your lucky stars, or in the case of
-real life, your Heavenly Father, for
how fortunate you are.
I do believe the theme and moral
of the e. -,ijung was; when you get
served lemons, make lemonade.

Brothers .ie in boating mishap


The bodies of two missing
DeFuniak Springs brothers, who
went fishing Sunday afternoon on
Choctawhatchee Bay in the
Panhandle, were recovered
Monday.
Searchers, including the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC), Walton
County Sheriff's Office, U.S.
Coast Guard and volunteers.
recovered the body of Logan
Alford, 17, Monday around noon
after combing Choctawhatchee
Bay south from Alaqua Creek
since late Sunday evening. The
body of his brother, Lucas Alford.
21, was found at 6 p.m. Monday.
The brothers launched their 14-
foot boat at the Alaqua Creek boat
ramp around 1 p.m. Sunday.
'Lt. Mark Hollinhead, an FWC


law enforcement supervisor, said
witnesses reported seeing the
brothers Sunday afternoon fishing
on the south side of the bay near

OP UR EYES


"Taylor crime rate soars." was the headline
of the Perry N .eald, i..Ay 16-17.
The News-Herald also tells us Taylor County's
crime rate increased by 56%, n 2006/2007.
Many of us were already aware that crime is
extending its tentacles into the very heart of Taylor
County. Others seem to be blissfully unaware that
drugs, particularly cocaine, are readily available
everywhere in Taylor County, available to our
children as well as to felons who commit criminal
acts to support -


Prostitution is Lthi-UV ilaIyi-i d ie to the availability of addictive drugs.
Drive along US j 'nigh- nig d you will begin to understand the scope of,
this problem. Ga. J phena)menon unheard of in our towns only a few years ago,
are emerging as a serious threat to our safety and to the wellbeing of our children.
Do you know the telltale signs of gang activity?

We can't ignore the crime statistics any longer.
While the county has nearly twice the population
of the city of Perry, 2006 crime reports show the
county makes 25% fewer arrests for overall crime
-, than the city The county made 75% fewer drugs
arrests than the city, and 77% fewerdrug arrests
than the Florida Game Commission in Taylor County

Open your eyes to what is taking place in
_ gour community! Crime is a frightening and
pervasive problem. The first step in dealing
a, with a problem is to acknowledge its existence.
Spread the word and you will have taken the
S ". [ step in dealing with crime!

James Edward Swain


James Edward Swain, known
to his family and many friends as
"Ed" left us on June 22, 2008, at
Orlando, Fla.
Ed was born August 11, 1955,
in Gainesville, Fla. to Clayton
M. and Carol Hamiter Swain and
lived his entire life in his native
state, except for a brief time as an
infant in Decatur, Ga. Ed loved
the outdoors. There wasn't a fish
out there that he couldn't catch.
He loved animals. He especially
loved his spectacular collection of
reptiles. It includes many species
of snakes especially beautiful are
his king snakes and giant pythons,
but there are many others, none
of them venomous. He loved and
cared for them all.
Ed was a member of the
Central Florida Herpetological
Society where he shared his love of
snakes with his many friends. Not
all of us are sympathetic to snakes,
but that is because we simply don't
know them like Ed did. His other
great love was music. He was a
member of the Friends of Florida
Folk and looked forward greatly
to attending the Will McLean
Folk Festival held every year near
Brooksville. He was so much a
Jimmy Buffet fan that he easily
qualified as a "Parrothead!"
Ed is survived by his parents,
Clayton and Carol Swain of Winter
Park, and two beautiful sisters,
Melinda Chizanskos (Mark)


. ..... -


of Ocala, and Cheryl Wood of
Winter Park. He is also survived
by two loving nephews, Chris and
Matt Wood also of Winter Park,
and their father, Jeff Wood of
Orlando. Also, let us not forget his
kitty "Skeeter," who was always
there for him. Ed was the first
grandchild in either family, and as
a very young child gave his two
grandparents their life-long nick
names, one becoming "Mima" and
the other "PawPaw." They both
loved these names, and were so
called by all of the grandchildren
who came later.
Please join us in saying
farewell to a wonderful son, a great
brother, a cool uncle, and a friend
to many at Carey Hand Cox-Parker
Funeral Home, 1350 W. Fairbanks
Ave., Winter Park, Fla., at 2 p.m.
on Thursday, June 26, 2008. Those
who wish to will please Ed by
making a donation in his memory
to the Reptile World Serpentarium,
5705 E.. Irlo Bronson Memorial
Hwy, St. Cloud, FL, 34771-8718.
To understand Ed, no words
are more descriptive of him than
these immortal words from Henry
David Thoreau: "If a man does not
keep pace with his companions,
perhaps it is because he hears a
different drummer. Let him step to
the music which he hears, however
measured or far away."
That is what Ed did. Goodbye,
we love you.

Jacob McCall
Jacob McCall has been named
Florida's "Designer of the Year" by
the- American Institute Of Floral
i Designers (AIFD) Foundation.
The designation earned him a
trip to the national AIFD
symposium, which will be held in
Chicago next month. There he will
compete for the national title.
In addition to "Designer of the
Year" honors, McCall was also
accredited as a "master designer."
McCall's interest in floral design
can be traced back to his
.childhood, as he relates: "When I
was a child at the young age of six,
I decided I was going to make lots
of money selling flowers. My
game plan was to go door-to-door
in the small town of Salem where I
grew up. -ihib a wrapped bouquet
of phlox that grew wild on the
railroad tracks. I pulled my
Radio Flyer wagon and made a
t-shirt with puff paint that read
Jake's Flowers. I guess I was
trying to brand myself at an early
age!
"I didn't make much money, but
I am often told by the older ladies
N% hen I go back home that I always
nmidc their day when I would come
pu.lh1ir; that little red wagon.
Ai.dcind the age of 12, I began
working for a great family floral
institution in Perry named
'Zeigler's Florist & Greenhouse'
owned by an amazing floral artist
by the name of Richard Zeigler. I
was the shop gopher--I swept,
cleaned cooler doors, watered dish
gardens and learned how to tape
floral wire. All this time I would
study Richard as he designed. It
seemed as if anything he touched
became beautiful. I wanted to be
just like him when I grew up. I
worked off and on until I graduated
and I decided that the floral

industry was not for me, it was just
a childhood dream.'
"I moved to Gainesville to
pursue an acting career and came
very close to getting a degree in
theater, but in the back of my mind
I always thought about flowers and
what I could make out of them! I

moved to Orlando where I worked
for Disney as an entertainer. This
lasted about a year and half when I
finally convinced my family to
help me with my dream of owning
my own florist in my hometown of
Perry. This became a reality, and a
rude awakening of owning a
business.
"I learned a great deal about
business, friendship and family
during this period of my life.
During this time I met a wonderful
woman named Jesica Parker of
Blossoms in Tallahassee. Jesica
became a very close friend in the
floral industry and also someone
who I look up to as a mentor. She
was always encouraging me to


further my career as a professional
floral designer. She also was the
first person to inspire me about
AIFD and FSMVD.
"When I sold my shop in Perry, I
moved back to Orlando where I
was hired to be the design manager
for INBLOOM florist, which at
that time was the largest retail
florist in Orlando. Len Morgansea
is the director of operations of
INBLOOM, and it was his mission
to push my skills to the limits of
design. Each month Len would
teach me something new or make
me challenge myself by entering a
competition. Len also encouraged
me to seek FSMD as well as
AIFD.
"A few years later I left
INBLOOM on good terms .with.
everyone, 1 felt I needed to fly on
my own. I managed a few retail
shops as well as worked for a few
event companies to make myself
aware of the other spectrum in the
floral industry. I had the pleasure
of decorating the Gaylord Palms
Hotel for holiday time as well as
the Peabody fountain while
working for a prestigious event
company.
"In the past few years, I have
become very active in Central
Florida Florist Association. I am
now serving as secretary on the
executive board. This past year I
had the pleasure of receiving the
Don Stothart award from the AIFD
Foundation. This award allowed
me to attend the acclaimed
national symposium which was
held in Palm Desert, Calif.
"This year I was able to compete
in the central Florida designer of
the year which I won. Another
feather in my hat was passing the
Florida state master designer
accreditation," McCall said.

I 'Hands-on' research takes



science teachers to the field


Three Taylor County science
teachers visited, the',Suwannee
River Water Management District
(District) last week to, participate
in a grant-funded science program
that allows them to conduct
hands-on research alongside
scientists in the field.
The program, Science *
Collaboration: Immersion, Inquiry,
Innovation (Sc:iii) was developed
to offer authentic learning
opportunities to educators who
teach science in grades 3-12.
Christy Moody and Mark
Jennings of Taylor County High
School, along with Vaughan Early
of Taylor County Middle School,
joined District public use
coordinator Edwin McCook and


Myles Bland of Bland and
Associates, an archaeological and
historic preservation and
consulting firm, on an
archaeological excursion to Drew
Mansion in Madison County.- The
purpose of the trip was to examine
the remains of its cemetery using
ground penetrating radar (GPR).
Chris Taylor, GPR operator,
demonstrated how the machine is
used to detect objects, changes in
material, vdids and cracks below
the, ground.
"The use of radar technology for
an on-the-ground application is the
type of realistic science that I look
for to use as a hoQk to generate
interest in science in the
classroom," Jennings said.


A critical goal in this program is
the opportunity for teachers to
experience inquiry science by
doing research with experts in the
field and to incorporate this
information in the classroom to
create an inquiry-based
environment.
"The intention is to have
teachers work side-by-side with
scientists with the hope that the
teachers will come away with
ideas for classroom activities that
more closely approximate the
work of real scientists," Moody
said. "My hope is to be able to
expose my students to current
science issues and to give them

'Animals are in a filthy



state' at county facility


Dear Editor:
Has anyone recently paid a visit
to the Animal Control Center here
in Perry? You are in for a big
shock!
The animals are in a filthy state
because there is no way to
adequately clean and spray
the kennels. The cats are in cages
with as many as six in a cage for
two.
Let's try 90 degrees at 11 a.m.
because there is no adequate
ventilation. I can only imagine the
heat when the building is closed on
weekends.
Where is Jack Brown? He has
the monies allocated for the
control center. The excuse the
ceiling would have to be lowered
before air-conditioning can be put


in is a poor excuse. It's just a dog
or just a cat is no excuse for not
properly caring for these animals.
The shelter needs proper insulation
and air-conditioning.
A bathtub has been donated to
bathe the dogs, so get a plumber to
connect it.
Keep the shelter open on
weekends for adoptions. Pictures
are placed in the paper. The most
promising time for adoption is on
the weekend but the shelter is
closed.
Use a couple of trustees from the
jail to do more than assist in
putting animals down. Scrub the
place down and clean it up.
"Parvo" is caused by filth.
Since at the present time there
are no vets, work out something


with local veterinarians. If
contacted in a proper way, I feel
sure they would help.
Food is being donated to the
shelter for both dogs and cats. This
is good and helps.
Get a couple organizations who
want something to do to sponsor
activities for these animals.
This letter is the result of
conversations with several people
who were unaware of the situation
or the location of the center at the
present time.
There is a very strong law in this
state regarding animal abuse.
Maybe a couple of our "fair"
commissioners should be told. Set
a big fat fire under them and get
something done.

Letters to the Editor

Refuge House is a 'well needed service'


Dear Editor:
Refuge House is an agency that
is there to serve women of
domestic violence.
I'm a concerned citizen of Taylor
County and there is a need for
these services in our community.
But I also have concerns about an
employee that works with Refuge
House (a nonviolent agency),
leaves her job for the day and
gets into a physical altercation
with another citizen ; in the
community (which is now a victim
of abuse).
How does that look for someone
to call the hotline and receive
service from inside the shelter
and/or outreach and later find out
the information that was given to
her was not useful when she hears
about the incident that took place


in her community. How are we
supposed to encourage our women
and the community to break the
cycle of violence? I call it
violence. However, when a
person decides to become a
humanist in our rural community,
it is your job to stay professional at
all times.
If that leads you to change your
social life, then you must do so.
However there is always someone
watching you and paying close
attention to your character and
morale. It should be about your
character and morale and the
loyalty of the work that you like to
do.
The question is to the
community of Taylor County:
Does that look good for the
agency, do we really need to


encourage our battered women to
utilize the services there?
Refuge House is a service that is
well needed in our community. I
have always supported Refuge
House. On the other hand we
cannot stand and let this type of
behavior go on in our community
and expect for it to go away. It
does not happen like that.
So, to those that are employed at
Refuge House: it is a commitment
to perform your job and serve your
community. However here's a little
advice to you, try to stay away
from violent incidents and stay
professional at all times, and don't
let your personal lives interfere
with you being professional
outside of your job.
Thank you,
Bobbie Parsons


Thief steals clockFerom library


Dear Editor:
I am writing in regard to the
disappearance .of the wall clock

We are all dismayed.. that
someone would have so little
respect for library property. If you
have any information about this
round wall clock, please call the
Taylor County Public Library at

man also lie with mankind, as he
lieth with a women, both of them
have committed an abomination:
they shall surely be put to death;
their blood shall be upon them.
"Ye shall therefore keep all my
statutes, and all my judgments, and
do them: that the land, whither I
bring you to dwell therein, spue
you not out. And ye shall not walk
in the manners of the nation, which
I cast out before you: for they
committed all these things, and
therefore I abhorred them. But I
have said unto you, Ye shall inherit
their land and I will give it unto
you to possess it, a land that
floweth with milk and honey: I am
the Lord your God, which have
separated you from other people."
What does the Democratic Party
say? The Democratic Party
endorses homosexual marriage.
California Supreme Court refuses
pleas from attorneys general in 10
states to delay homosexual
marriage. On June 3, the
Democratic National Committee
issued a 2008 Gay Pride
proclamation supporting
homosexual marriage. DNC
Chairman Howard Dean and
Representatives Barney Frank and
Tammy Baldwin released the
proclamation.
Also, in a display of sheer
arrogance, the California Supreme
Court refused to delay legalization

To Perry Rotary Club


Dean gives legislative update


State Senator Charles Dean was
a recent guest of the 'Perry Rotary
Club, giving club members an
update on the Florida Legislature's
2008 session.
Overall, he graded the session a
"C," as legislators tried "to keep
our heads above water" with
budget cuts.
He discussed a number of bills
that he either sponsored or
supported, including one to assist


MARRIAGE
Continued from page 2
of homosexual marriage until after
the people of California have a
s' chance to vote on the issue in
November. Attorneys general from
10 states asked the activist judges
to delay implementing their ruling,
citing the millions of dollars in
litigation it will cost their
respective states and the legal
chaos caused by the California
Supreme Court.
These activist judges clearly
showed their goal is to force


law enforcement agencies
.investigate and prosecute dating
violence. Another bill makes it a
first degree felony if someone
interrupts vital services such as
phone service during the theft of
copper.
He said the legislature "didn't
get the job done" on the issue of
homeowner's insurance, adding
that he had been canceled himself
by his carrier.


homosexual marriage on every
American.
Congressman Paul Broub of
Georgia has introduced the
Marriage Protection Amendment
of 2008 (H.J. RES. 89) This
amendment would make marriage
legal only between a man and a
woman.
Homosexual activists are
determined to use activist judges
like those in California to force
homosexual marriage on every
American.
What do you the American
people say? Are you on the side of


As for property taxes, he said he
would be working in the next
session for a working waterfronts
provision in which property
owners could turn over
development rights in exchange
for lower taxes. Should the owners
want to later develop their land,
they would have to pay those
taxes.
Dean's office in Inverness may
be contacted at 866-538-2831.


God? or are you on the side of the
Democratic Party? I am very
disappointed that the Democratic
Party has endorsed homosexual
marriage.
I urge you to write an email to
your congressman Representative
E Allen Boyd Jr. (D-FL 2nd) that
he co-sponsor H.J. RES. 89, the
Marriage Protection Amendment
. of 2008, which would make
* marriage legal only between a man
and a women.
Do not wait until God condemns

Dr. Tom Fletcher and Dr. Miles Owens donated not only their time, but all vaccines for the
eighth annual low-cost pet show clinic.

Veterinarians hailed as 'heroes'


p~fl


Dr. Tom Fletcher and Dr. Miles
Owens, Taylor County
veterinarians, were the -heroes of
the day when the Subway-Dixon
Rescue Fund hosted its eighth
annual low-cost pet shot clinic on
May 31.
"The doctors not only
contributed their valuable time in
service to Taylor County's canine


citizens, but they also donated all
the vaccines used at the clinic,"
said Mary Lou Dixon.
All proceeds from the clinic
benefitted the Subway Dixon
Rescue Fund, a 501(c)3 non-profit
corporation dedicated to the
rescue and rehabilitation of
homeless dogs in Taylor
County.


Some 230 rabies vaccines were
administered, as well as numerous
other vaccinations.
"We had a large turnout and
we're very grateful to the local vets
(who were assisted by Sharon, Rita
and Paula), and to the volunteers
who worked so hard to make the
clinic a huge success," she
added.


Program funded by a $1.48 million grant


SCIENCE TEACHERS
Continued from page 1
inquiry-based assignments so that
they learn to use the critical
thinking skills scientists use as
they approach, analyze and solve
real world problems."
Archaeology is not the only
branch of science that Moody,
Jennings and Early have been
exposed to while participating in
this program. They also performed
gopher tortoise surveys and
monitored vegetation in the area
while working with Beau Willsey,
a biologist with Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission.
The Florida Department of
Education awarded the Panhandle
Area Educational Consortium a
math and science partnership grant
in the amount of $1.48 million to
conduct and manage the program.
Funds will be used to pay teacher
stipends, travel and assist with
supplies for each work site.
Approximately 100 teachers
from Madison County to Escambia
County will participate this
summer. Teachers are divided into


teams and have the opportunity to
choose from a variety of activities


that encompass almost every field
of science.
