New laws on gun possession, abuse of elderly highlighted
"Marijuana is the most
commonly used illegal drug in
America and we must take a stand
against the for-profit growers who
were previously exploiting higher
thresholds," said Oelrich. "By
lowering the number of plants
necessary for criminal charges,
we've given Florida's authorities
valuable tools in the fight against
these criminal operations."
"Grow houses have become a
very real threat to the safety and
security in too many Florida
communities," said Thompson.
"Floridians who use grow houses
to traffic drugs belong in prison.
This law sends the message loud
and clear that if you grow, you
Recent statistics reveal an
increase in the number of grow
houses being maintained in Florida
as well as the ever-developing
levels of sophistication of grow
house operations. Marijuana grow
houses primarily specializing in
hydroponic marijuana have been
detected in more than 40 of
Florida's 67 counties and within
the past few months, cooperative
efforts by law enforcement
statewide have taken down more
than 140 houses and seized more
than $41.6 million worth of
The new law also allows a
photograph or video recording of
equipment used in the cultivation
of a marijuana plant to be
considered as evidence in the
prosecution of the crime. In
addition, the law will allow law
enforcement to destroy grow house
equipment upon the completion of
all investigations and provides
immunity from any civil liability to
law enforcement for the
destruction of the grow house
A separate bill makes it illegal to
sell or possess Silvia Divinorum, a
perennial herb in the mint family
native to Mexico, and Salvinorin
A, its active component. Salvia
Divinorum, which has become a
recreational drug in recent years, is
a hallucinogen whose effects are
compared to LSD.
Other new laws that went into
effect this week include:
*Workers and customers will
now be allowed to keep guns in
their vehicles parked in parking
lots owned by private and
government businesses. (The law
is being challengedd)
*Those facing noncriminal
traffic fines whi cannot pay will be
able to pay off the fine through
*Those who are incarcerated and
later found to be innocent will
automatically receive $50,000 for
every year in prison. Those with
prior felony convictions, however,
would not be included and would
have to seek restitution from the
*Aggravated abuse of an elderly
person or disabled adult will now
be a first-degree felony.
*Law enforcement agencies
must adopt written policies for
investigating missing children and

With scallop season here, the

was one of my favorite questions
this year so far. The chamber has
sent out more than 336 vacation
requests since the beginning of the
year to people requesting
information about our area.
There is a great deal going on in
Taylor County in the coming few
months. For starters, there is the
annual 4th of July celebration in
Steinhatchee. A Taylor County
favorite, Steinhatchee welcomes
all to the celebration with plenty of
food, fun and activities planned as
well as fireworks at dusk.
On Monday, July 14, at 6 p.m.,
join Model T owners from all over
Florida as they make our very own
downtown Perry their first "pit
stop" onl their way to the
nationwide centennial celebration.
Activities will last from 6 to 8 p.m.
with a 100th anniversary cake,
food, fun and seven classic Model
T Ford cars.
In addition to the many
community activities, the chamber
will be holding its 15th annual
Chamber Golf Scramble Aug. 1 5 at
the Perry Golf & County Club.
This event ~allows chamber
members to network in a fun
setting. Players will have a chance
to win a brand new Timberland
Ford truck in the hole-in-one
competition as well as many other
great prizes. Just call the chamber
for more information.

One may be hard-pressed to find
a person who doesn't enjoy a
breathtaking fireworks display.
These pyrotechnic delights are one
of the hallmarks of the summer
season. Parks, area beaches and
many other recreational areas
feature fireworks displays to light
up the nighttime sky. Fireworks are
also very popular for personal use,
with peak use around big holidays,
such as Independence Day.
Consumer fireworks, if used in
accordance with their instructions,
are very safe, says the National
Council on Fireworks Safety.
Injuries from consumer fireworks
have dramatically decreased over
the past 20 years, despite an
increase in usage by consumers.
Today, some form of consumer
fireworks are allowed in 45 states,
Puerto Rico and the District of
Columbia. But some fireworks can

Taylor County High School student Amanda Jennings has been accepted
as a member of the "Rising Star" program at Savannah College of Art and
Design. She is the first local student to receive the honor.
"Some of you may rememlier the beautiful portraits and artwork by
Amanda displayed at the May 2008 Forest Capital Music and Art
Festival," art teacher Jeff Byers said.
Her acceptance in the college program was based on a portfolio of work
"She will be traveling to the Savannah, Ga., campus for the summer.
While there she will be enrolled in two college level classes and will have
the opportunity to build or enhance her visual arts portfolio. Outside of
class, she will be able to complete assignments, take field trips, socialize
with other art students and enjoy area parks and other attractions Savannah
has to offer.
"Upon successfully completing the 'Rising Star program,' she will earn

How does the county government

.~ Good news for the animal
Shelter! Several shelter volunteers
~met with Jack Brown (county
~.administrator) and Jeff Manning
:~(director of public safety) this
week to address problems within
Sthe current shelter, including the
~lack of airi-conditioning, needed
E supplies and additional personnel.
F:~The volunteers were very
~--encouraged and pleased with plans
-'that have already been "in the
.works" and will hopefully be
approved by commission inembers
-rin the future.
There are federal guidelines that
must be adhered to concerning the
health and welfare of animals, so
please, contact your county
commissioner by phone, mail, or
e-mail by going to
on "commissioners," then click on
Sthe name of the commissioner for
Your district. A new window will
open with their e-mail address.
i:Respectfully request that they
approve future renovations to the .
You can e-mail Jack Brown at
com and Jeff Manning at
and put "animal shelter" in the
subject line. Thank them for their
willingness to rectify issues within
the shelter, and encourage them to
continue to seek doable solutions
to animal welfare throughout the
Budget cuts have affected
almost everyone, and animal
control is no different. Currently
there are only two animal control
officers for an area of over 1,000
acres and a population exceeding
20,000. Multiply that by just the
number of hound dogs. Well, you
get the picture. Two people simply
cannot do it all.
The backbone of almost every
non-profit organization is its
volunteers. There is already a
group forming called "Helpinig
Hands of the Shelter." Visit our
Web site at www.shelterhands.com
and read our goals, names of
volunteers, view photos of
adoptable pets at the shelter, ask
questions and volunteer.
Lots of ideas and activities are
spinning around and will be
published after approval, so check
the newspaper and Web sites often.
High on the list are people willing
to volunteer for shelter "duty" on
Saturday, in the hopes that more
9-5 weekday workers will be
accommodated and more pets will
find homes. Approved foster
homes are also needed for pets too
young to be adopted, or those who
have been hurt and just need a
place to heal before they can be
found permanent homes.
A personal "thank you" to Jack
Brown and Jeff Manning for their
willingness to meet with
volunteers, courtesy and
agreement to work together to
improve conditions for all animals

My thoughts about Taylor
1. Continues to bail the hospital
out of financial difficulties despite
the less than mediocre care given
2. Refuses to enforce ordinances
regarding signs littering the
roadway in Steinhatchee (it looks
Like the yellow pages). DOT has
been in contact with Taylor County
Hospital and Ms. Nan
Taylor County School

limited vision. Imagine the view from
scallop's perspective: fleshy human masses
diving your way, lunging with hands and
feet, and monstrous masks, breathing
deeply through snorkels and occasionally
choking on sea water.
Not a pretty sight.
The encyclopedia described scallops ad
"awkward swimmers,' filling their shells fulE

little holes." In comparison, they're
probably no more awkward thanth
swimmers pursuing them.
In myI growing up, we spent quanta

Now that conversation is taking place oveii

But at least the conversation is taking

said, pointing with my knife. Biology was

"Intestines," I guessed, pointing to an
intricate system of gooey strings.
"I don't know," I said honestly, attracting
attention to yet another body organ.
"We should look it up," I added, and the
children were horrified. It's as if the mere
process of gaining information -sounds like
school bells ringing.
"That's enough," they maintained
enthusiastically. "You're probably right."
"But what if I'm wrong?" I said, for I hate to
After washing my hands six times, it
didn't take long for me to find my way to a
set of encyclopedias. I was terribly
disappointed to find that they had not
diagrammed the interior parts of a scallop
Sso that I could accurately identify the 200
sets of organs I had seen that day. It would
make the scallop-cleaning process more
interesting if you knew what you were
throwing away. What if some other scallop
needs a liver?
Okay, okay, I know the answer to that,
Too bad. But it's a shame to have 200 in
