'Nolo contenders'


Warf enters plea for DU


SCTVills the Tree Capital of the South Since 1961


Emotions ran high on both sides
of the aisle as Michael P. Warf, 40,
stood before Judge James "Roy"
Bean Monday morning and entered
a plea of "nolo contender" to a
charge of DUI manslaughter in the
death of Cynthia Miller, 51.
Miller was killed in a head-on
collision on Golf Course Road
Dec. 12, 2006. Two passengers in


the vehicle with her, Ashley
Williams and Alicia Harris,
sustained serious injuries .in the
crash. I
Injured parties have also filed a
civil case in this matter against
Warf and his insurance company.
"Sir, you understand that.a plea
of nolo contenders has the same
legal affect as a guilty plea?" Bean


asked Warf during the hearing.
Warf affirmed his decision to
enter the plea, noting that he
realized that the plea also nullified
his right to a jury trial.
He entered the same plea on two
Other counts, DUI with serious
bodily injury and DUI with
damage to personal property.
In reviewing the facts of the


case, Assistant State Attorney John
N. Weed related that at the time of
the head-on collision, Warfs blood
alcohol level was three times the
legal limit (.24).
A pre-sentence investigation was
ordered in the case; Warf remains
free on bail until the sentencing
hearing set for Aug. 25 at 11 a.m.
"You will remain free on the


same bond, but you are aware that
you will be incarcerated on the
25th of August when the sentence
is determined," Bean told Warf.
In a sworn affidavit filed with
the Taylor County Clerk of Court,
Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) Cpl.
Timothy J. Roufa detailed the

Steinhatchee boat ramp project


County officials continue their
efforts to bring a large scale boat
ramp, which would allow public
access to the Steinhatchee River, to
fruition.
Project engineer Donnie
Ellington updated county
commissioners last week on the
project.
The site for the proposed ramp is
located west of the former Gulf
Breeze Marina ona parcel of land
at Fifth Avenue North and Sixth
Street West.
According to an early concept
plan for the project, the boat ramp
will have four lanes with finger
docks, 200 parking spaces and 45
boat slips.
"The Steinhatchee Boat Ramp
project is envisioned as a
public/private partnership between
Taylor County, the agency who
will be preparing and submitting
required permit applications, and a
private property owner, who will
dedicate the required property and
pending sale of water front lots


created by the project and will fund
an undetermined portion of the
construction," Ellington said.
"Project team members have met
with representatives of local, state,
and federal agencies to discuss the
project concepts and public need.
"Taylor County, after evaluating
numerous potential sites for access
to the coastal waters and
concluding that the Steinhatchee
site proposed for this partnership
may be the only site available to
meet the public access need,
continues to fund the ongoing
feasibility study effort through
local and state grant sources
dedicated to providing public
access to the state's waterways."
The county received word from
state officials last week that it had
received additional grant funding
to conduct required wetland
mitigation and water quality
modeling studies.
"While certainly not being able
to guarantee approval at this point,
local and state agencies, including


the Suwannee River Water
Management District (SRWMD)
and the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC),
have expressed interest in
accepting required permit
applications and willingness to
work with the public/private
partnership throughout the permit
review process," Ellington said.
The pending wetland mitigation
and water quality modeling studies
are expected to provide
recommendations for mitigating
potential negative impacts
identified by these agencies, he
added.
"The project team has been
encouraged by the generally
positive reception from these local
and state agencies and feels
hopeful that the overwhelming
public need for the project will


greatly outweigh any remaining
negative impacts."
In addition to the boat ramp's
necessary permitting process, the
project is also facing a potential
delay due to an ongoing wetland
disturbance violation by the
Conservancy Partnership, the
private property owner.
The U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA)
determined that the Conservancy
Partnership violated the Clean
Water Act for "discharging or
directing the discharge of dredged
and/or fill material into waters of
the United States. These
discharges were made without a
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
permit in 16.8 acres of forested
wetlands and adjacent tidal

ACCESS, US9
A proposed policy, which would
allow residents to improve and
maintain at their own expense
public right-of-ways in
Steinhatchee for public use, may
expand to cover the entire county
as commissioners resume
discussions next week.
After lengthy input from
residents, commissioners agreed to
table the issue until their meeting
set for Monday, Aug. 4. Among
possible changes commissioners
said they would consider is
expanding the policy beyond the
borders of Steinhatchee.
.
As submitted by Stembatchee
resident Stan Ridgeway, the policy
would establish a program to
"improve the public street right-of-
ways that go to the Steinhatchee
River and open green space owned
by the county for the public
enjoyment 4tid'us6 tif the local
residents and visitors. Activities to
be enjoyed might include: fishing,
wildlife observation, bird
watching, picnicking, launching of
canoes, kayaks and small boats, or

during the hearing held Tuesday,
July 22, in Steinhatchee, with

:mip
adding that they wanted the
language changed to include their
community as well.
When public input began,
* Steinhatchee resident Jim Hunt
questioned whether it was proper
for Ridgeway to bring the proposal
to the board while he is a candidate
for the county commission district
3 seat, which includes
Steinhatchee.
Commission Chairman Clay
Bethea, who currently holds the
seat, but is noF running for re-
election, said the issue was outside
theboard's considerations.
Claude Smoak said he had
"considerable concerns" about the
policy, including that the proposal
did not mention neighboring
landowners to the right-of-ways.

TCSO d ep uty resig ns

following indictment

The Taylor County Sheriffs Office (TCSO) deputy, named in a 57-count
federal indictment involving marine species illegally caught in Florida and
shipped out-of-state, has resigned.
According to a spokesman with the TCSO, Eric Woods, 27, "resigned as
soon as he heard about the indictment. He called and resigned of his own
free will (Thursday) and turned in his letter of resignation the next day
(Friday, July 25)."
Woods was one of seven men charged in the indictment, which followed
a two-year investigation by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration's fisheries service (NOAA), the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) and the United States Attorney's Office.
The indictment, returned last week in U.S. District Court in Albany, Ga.,
detailed how five Panhandle fishermen and seafood dealers and two
Georgia brothers, allegedly conspired to transport a variety of marine fish
illegally across state lines from Florida to Georgia, mislabeled fish and
falsified documents. The multi-count indictment alleges that the owners
of Road Runner Seafood Incorporated in Colquitt, Ga., worked with
fishermen and two seafood dealers in Florida to purchase fish illegally
taken or fish that cannot be sold in Florida.
They also are charged with mislabeling the fish that must be reported to
the FWC and NOAA.

By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
Managing Editor -
The title is simple enough:
"They Were Here."
But : the very title speaks
volumes about the history of
Taylor County--18 volumes, that
is.
The "They Were Here" series
showcases the personalitieswhich
give Taylor County's history its
colorful backdrop.
If you've disregarded the books
because a historical series sounds
like "dry" reading, think again.
The short summaries of people
(and their places) makes for easy


reading. It helps you put the
pieces together in Taylor's past,
and may leave you feeling better
about its future,
Currently, local historians are
compiling information for the next
edition.
"We are always looking for
more information on the people
who have been associated with the .
county and have passed on," said
President Wanda Cash. So if
you've always thought you should
add an ancestor to the ongoing
compilation, now would be a good
time.

"The new size limits protect

The new rules also reduce

"That's the most we have had
since I've been here," the coach
said. .
Harris says he's tried to do some
fun things this summer other than
lifting weights and running laps.
"Tuesdays are fun for the kids.
We've been doing some wrestling
and some other competitive stuff,"
he said.
Earlier this- summer, the
Bulldogs competed in an
abbreviated 7-on-7 non-contact
season with several area schools.
"We went to Madison for our
first game and it wits not pretty.
But then Madison and Suwannee
came to our place and we swept
them," Harris said.
The season was cut short for the
Bulldogs due to district cuts in the
transportation budget.
The coach said several players
who would not have been eligible


to play this fall got some help
with their grades over the summer.
"Mark Jennings, Dave Gray and
myself taught some kids in the -
credit recovery program and it
worked out well," he said.
The summer learning session is
part of the No Child Left Behind
program.
Fall practice will begin August
11 with two-a-days. Anyone
interested in playing will be
allowed but they must have a
physical before they can
participate.
"Those kids who 'didn't
participate in the spring and
summer will be behind itnd will
have to do some makeup work but
we're going to allow them to
play," he said.
Those interested should contact
Harris at the high school at 838-
2500, ext. 6. .

Let the party continue!
On Sunday, July 13, B.D. (Bernetha) Williams celebrated her 97th birthday, honored by
.
friends and family who brought cake, ice cream and gifts. The following Sunday, July 20,
Mrs. Williams was toasted again when Springhill Missionary Baptist Church celebrated its
.
155th anniversary, and shared the spotlight. But the party continues! Here, Mrs. Williams
is shown with newspaper employees Debbie Carlton, left, and Sarah Weirick, who offered
happy birthday wishes to the longtime columnist. Mrs. Williams has been writing for
newspapers in this community for nearly 50 years, having worked with both the Thompsons
and Smiths in her early years. Her mother, Mary Jane Colson, lived until she was 113. Odds
are good that Mrs. Williams--a Taylor County native--is eyeing that number, too.

and time where God used another
heart to reach out and touch mine.
It may have happened years ago or
maybe yesterday, but every person
on my list has helped me grow, or
heal, or laugh, or love, or learn to
smile. The blessings never end, as
God allows our paths to cross as
family or friend. So please know
that this is more than just a wish,
it's a thank you card/letter to God,
for putting you on my list; each and
everyone whose name I've come.to
hold so dear. Those who have
shown me how much you care by
your visits and your calls. To my
church family and to those who
stood by me with your money and
your prayers for two and a half
years, I thank you. To my
caregivers, thank you and may God
bless all of you. I kept watching
until I saw my rainbow, so I know


without a doubt that my storm is
finally over." Love Treva Walker

sincere thanks to all who displayed
their acts of kindness during their

especially thank the staff of Trinity

Local Army mother Doretha
Smith recently received a letter
from her son's section chief
praising his dedication to duty as a
non-commissioned officer (NCO).
Smith's son, Anthony Latoski
Smith, is a sergeant in the U.S.
Army. He is formerly*of Perry.
The letter read, "I just wanted to
take some time out and let you
know that Sgtn Smith is a great
NCO. I think you have done a
great job with him. Sgt Smith
brings a lot of wisdom to the table.
The soldiers really look up to him
through his teachings and
guidance. Sgt. Smith recently has
certified as a section chief with a
specialist as his gunner. By doing
so, Sgt. Smith is the only sergeant
in the battalion to certify with a
specialist. That speaks a lot about
what he has achieved. The young
specialist is one of the few soldiers
that he trained. I am very thankful
to have this guy in my section. I
am so proud of him and his work
ethic skills are great. He is a
reliable person who I can count on
anytime day or night.
"Sgt. Smith has lost a lot of


Sgt. Anthony Smith
weight since he has been in charge
of the physical fitness of the
soldiers. He has trained two
soldiers in weight training while
helping them to lose a combined
weight of 30 pounds between both
soldiers."
Smith is the sort of Doretha and
Ernest Smith of Perry. his
grandparents are Betty Smith of
Miami and the late A.D. and Mary
Faulk.

Dear Editor:
Let me start by making every
reader aware that I am not giving
names of specific law enforcement
personnel nor defaming anyone--
as they did me--but I believe I have
a right to attempt to correct a
wrong that was done to me. Not to
mention, the public has a right to
know what kind of law
enforcement we pay our taxes for.
My life and my reputation in
Taylor. County is over, due to
unprofessional and downright
ignorant law enforcement officers
and their severe lack of state and
federal law and police procedures.
Taylor County has already seen
and heard the ignorance of local
law enforcement (you know who
you are) regarding this issue...and
now, it's time for the facts and
the truth. On June 24, Animal
Control was broken into and three
days later I was arrested for the
crime. There was no evidence--at
all. No physical evidence. No
witnesses. Perry Police even felt
the need to fabricate physical
evidence because they had none,
and when I did not admit to
something I did not do to begin
with, they decided to arrest me on
probable cause--again with no
evidence. This is all in the public


record reports that I urge everyone
to get a copy of. Of note, the
charges were all dropped by the
States Attorney within 6 days of
the initial arrest. I am glad
someone in this county knows
what they are doing.
When and if any of the residents
of Taylor county view these
reports, please make note of my
initial statement and those
interviews to follow. My own
"story" never changed. Please also
make a note of the multiple
inconsistencies on the side of law
enforcement and how they
contradict themselves throughout
the entire report and narratives.
Additionally, please make note of
how they take everything a certain
county employee says as the
gospel, even though she
contradicts herself multiple times
and all of what she says regarding
me is hearsay (and mostly lies).
The funny thing is that they wrote
and typed the reports themselves
and made themselves look like
even bigger idiots by doing so.
Apparently, they did not proof read
because I hate to think that anyone
can be that dumb.
At this time, I would like to
make some suggestions. Law

What is it that the politicians

the people? Apparently they
disregard the facts and continue to
play shell games with the people
by making them think they are

The people are getting

did not see the council members

not necessities, such as
monuments etc. while shorting our
garbage pick-up, fire and police

Dear Editor:
Our profound thanks to you for
publishing photos and
descriptions of pets for adoption
each week. We are happy to report
thirt people are responding and
many animals are finding new
homes. You are literally life-
savel thank you to Hoyt Ragans
(Ace Hardware) WE allowmgs us-
space on his land to erect the
directional sign for the animal
shelter!
And the commissioners, for
approving renovations to the
shelter building, including
dropping the ceiling,' installing
wCa r- eaistant ili ordtiles,
cool and improve air flow. (And
David Palmer who will be doing
the work!) Helping Hands has
obtained paperwork for a non-
profit organization, and the "green


light" from Jack Brown (county
administrator) and commissioners
to actively begin work within and -
without the shelter building.
One of the goals of the Helping
Hands of the Shelter volunteers is
to ensure that every adoptable pet
is clean, has been wormed and

ge eived vacc natio wprilornite
- YartirZilgh Tirehas donated a new
pet bathtub---a huge "thank you"
tothemaswell!.
We will be holding fund-raisers
in the future to purchase
medicinal supplies, including a
carnival in September, and crah .
sale in November. That will be a
wonderful ay to hel eyou m e

We already have several rafters
who would like a table to
display their items for sale, but
