A U.S. Air Force bomb disposal
unit was called in Friday after a
local resident found a device with
military markings near Hagen's
Cove.
According to Taylor County
Sheriffs Office Capt. Audie
Towles, the device was identified
by the Air Force team to be a live


PPD looks


to re-ignite


cold cases

In some cases, the deaths were
stunning in the level of brutality
inflicted on -the victims. In others,
questions outnumber leads and
evidence.
The common factor in each is
the family left behind to wonder
what happened to a loved one.
The Perry Police Department is
re-examining four unsolved
murders that stretch back to 1988,
along with a fifth "undetermined
death" and a missing person report
that remains open to this day.
The most recent case involves
the death of Chavorski Burney,
who was found murdered May 28,
2006, in a vehicle parked behind
the Temple of God Church on
Sandra Street. He was 23.
According to reports, police
officers were sent to the scene
around 8:45 on a Sunday morning
following a report from a neighbor
that a man had been found lying
across the front seat of a white
four-door car.
Pti. Brian Curry was first to
arrive along with Sgt. Gene
Franklin. Both officers were able
to determine that the victim was
not breathing and was, in fact,
"cold to the touch."
The reporting witness told
officers that he was walking his
dog when he came upon the man
in the car. The witness stated that
he called out to the victim, but got
no response. At that point, he had
another resident call police.
"We are asking anyone who has
information on this shooting to
come please come forward. You
can call the police department or
CrimeStoppers (888-876-TIPS).
All callers can remain
". Please see page 2


phosphorous flare.
The flare was most likely used
during exercises over the Gulf of
Mexico and failed to ignite, falling
to the water, Towles said. The
higher than normal tides
experienced during Tropical Storm
Fay last month then washed the
device onshore.


Local law enforcement officers
were notified of the find, and,
assisted by Taylor County
Fire/Rescue and Taylor County
Emergency Management, they
quickly cordoned off the area
around the device and contacted
the Air Force.
Towles said whenever they


receive a report of military
devices, they always assume it
could be live ordnance and act
accordingly.
The bomb disposal unit from
Moody Air Force Base
arrived Friday afternoon and
removed the device without
incident.


Towles offered a warning to area
residents.
"Anytime somebody finds
military-type ordnance, do not
touch it and call local law
enforcement as soon as possible,"
he said.
"It could be live or could cause
chemical burns."


Fiery crash
Alcohol appears to have been a contributing factor in a fiery crash Tuesday on Beach Road. The driver of this 2000 Lincoln Town Car sustained only minor injuries.
Sonia B. Oglesby, 30, was taken to Doctors' Memorial Hospital for treatment. She was traveling north on C R. 861 (Beach'Road) when she lost control attempting to
negotiate a curve. The vehicle traveled across both lanas of traffic and strucK a culvert. The car's gas tank ruptured, setting off a fire that completely.engulfed the vehicle.
Charge are pending toxicology results. Above, Florida Highway Patrol Trooper William Ernst examines the wreckage.



Aerial spray obliterates mosquitoes


The recent invasion of
mosquitoes in Taylor County has
been curbed significantly after the
state sprayed more than 97,000
acres from the air last week to clear
the area of most of the biting
insects.
The only hitch in the program
was that the public information
officer for the Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer
Services' Bureau of Entomology &
Pest Control used an outdated
contact list for Taylor County.
Thus, local officials were unaware


the state would be spraying last
week (Wednesday and Thursday
evenings) until it was already'
accomplished.
While no one reported the flights
over the south end of the county
Wednesday night, Thursday
evening's fly-overs around Perry
resulted in dozens of calls to law
enforcement from concerned
residents.
According to Capt. Audie
Towles with the Taylor County
Sheriffs Office, more than 20
residents called Thursday night


PIS "


about "low-flying planes."
In an attempt to learn where the
plane originated, TCSO contacted
Moody Air Force Base to see if the
* military was conducting operations
here. As it turned out, the base was
conducting operations nearby, but
only at high altitudes, Towles said.
It was not until late Friday
morning that local officials were
able to confirm that the planes
were part of the state's mosquito
spraying efforts.
County Director of
Environmental Services John said


Tuesday thatdespite the mix-up in
communications, he is very
relieved the state did the aerial
spraying.
The county had been working
with state officials to authorize the
spraying since Tropical Storm Fay
dropped more than 18 inches of
rain on the area last month.
"I'm just pleased we got it done,"
Singer said. "The (mosquito)
counts are down significantly. The
number of service calls are down

Festival benefits March of Dimes


Timberland Ford has purchased the first 100 tickets
available for the upcoming Pickin' in the Pines Bluegrass
Festival and has donated them back to the community. Tickets
are available at the chamber and at Timberland Ford (limit
two per person). Timberland's Brett Falicon, right,
presented the tickets to Chamber Director Dawn Taylor
Tuesday.


It's bluegrass season again as
Taylor County prepares for its third
annual Pickin' in the Pines
Bluegrass Festival to benefit- the
March of Dimes.
The two-day festival, with
headliner Valerie Smith & Liberty
Pike, will be held at Forest Capital
State Park Friday and Saturday,
Sept. 26-27.
The event will feature a line-up
that includes Valerie Smith &
Liberty Pike, Ernie Evans &
Southern Lite, New Grass
Generation, Pure & Simple, Even
Money, Sawgrass Band, Calliope
Band and the Tallahassee Fiddlers.
Music begins at 6 p.m. Friday
and runs through 10 p.m., picking
up at 11 a.m. on Saturday and
continuing through 10 p.m.
In addition to the band, the
festival will also feature music
workshops for all ages and
experience levels.
For the kids, there will be face
painting, and art and craft vendors
will be selling a variety of items
including airbrushed t-shirts,
children's books, clothes made
from vintage linens, birdhouses,
windchimes, candles, bird feeders,
oil paintings, watercolors,
handbags, jewerly and more. ..
Food vendors will also be selling
their wares offering festival
favorites such as BBQ chicken and
pork, shaved ice, hot dogs and


hamburgers.
Weekend passes are $10, with all *
proceeds benefiting the Taylor
County March of Dimes' March
for Babies campaign.
The annual March for Babies
event (formerly known as
.WalkAmerica) will be held
Saturday morning as area teams
gather to walk to raise additional
funds for the campaign.









The teams will also have tables
selling various items throughout
the festival to benefit the March of
Dimes.
Now in their 10th year,
headliners Valerie Smith & Liberty
Pike play more than 175 dates per
year. ,
The band consists of Smith as
lead singer and band leader, Becky
Buller on vocals, fiddle,
clawhammer banjo, guitar and as a
principal songwriter in the group,
Bobby Davis on bass and fiddle,
Chad Graves on Resophonic guitar
*and vocals, and Eric Lambert on


guitar and mandolin.
Smith got into music at an early
age, singing rousing Baptist hymns
in church, and later began to
accompany her parents to play her
fiddle and sing with local country
and bluegrass musicians in her
hometown of Holt, Mo., and the
surrounding area.
Later, a strong desire to learn
more and to teach others prompted
Smith to attend the University of
Missouri Conservatory of Music in
Kansas City, Mo., where she
received her B.A. in vocal music
education. While attending
school, Smith met her future
husband, Kraig Smith, and the
couple moved to Nashville, Tenn.,
shortly after they were married.
There, she formed" the acoustic
country group "Fresh Cactus" and
played extensively in Nashville
while honing her songwriting and
performance skills. Then Smith
met Nashville entrepreneur J.
Gregory Heinike, owner of the
Bell Buckle Caf6. Smith, Heinike
and Kraig Smith founded Bell
Buckle Records and Valerie
recorded her first highly acclaimed
CD, "Patchwork Heart" and
formed her band, Liberty Pike.

Bee triggers

motorcycle

accident

Thursday

A Missouri man escaped serious
injury after being ejected from his
motorcycle in a crash caused when
a bee flew up his pants leg.
Oliver Ernest Martin Jr., 57, of
House Springs, Mo., told officers
with the Florida Highway Patrol
that he became distracted when the
bee flew up his pants leg and this
caused him to lose control of his
2006 Yamaha motorcycle.
The bike overturned onto its
side and Martin--who was
wearing a helmet--was thrown into
the eastbound lane of traffic on
U.S. 98 West.
The crash occurred around
11:20 a.m. on Sept. 11, just west of
Cabbage Grove Road.
The Taylor County Sheriffs
Office and Doctors' Memorial
Hospital EMS responded to the
scene. Trooper Allen Kennard was
the investigating officer; no
charges are expected.

After Hou Apontet Aalle


This morning, September 11 2008, I
watched the replay of the madry news shots
of the 2001 attack on the, World Trade Center.
I consider that day to be a major turning point
in, not only our nation, but in the history of the
world. It was like the starting gun of the final
race. It awakened everyone toi the reality of
the existence of negative, destructive forces
that despise the very concept of Peace, and
Personal Freedom: I
The names of groups of radical
Muslims, such as Al Quaeda, and Taliban
suddenly became all too familiar. The similar
organizations around the world in Asia, the
Philippines, and Africa let their' presence be
known also. ,. '
These people operate urder a 'facade&
of distorted religious beliefs; beliefs that
are totally foreign to true Mus im believers.
In Russia we have a sirhmering cauldron of
hatred and malice that doesn't even pretend
these days to be fostering .any type of
ideology as an excuse for their belligerence
and disregard for the rights of others. Power
and dominance over their neighbors is their
only motive.
China. China has awakened to the fact
that a pretense of reform serves its purposes
better than the old iard line communism.
Trade with the other members of the world
community have helped ease its economic
problems, and improved'its image.
Don't be foolec. These are some of
the major team members in the Force of
Negativity that exists in our world today.
These are ones who are organized to various
degrees, and let their presence be known.
Others, just as dangerous in their own
way, are much less wi ling to reveal their
existence and must be ferreted out like
rodents robbing and spoiling your winter
supply of food stuffs. These are the CEO's
and CFO's of organizat ons who steal and
embezzle from the very people who trusted
them for their financial security. These are
the politicians ,who take bribes and spend
tax payers moqey on useless projects just to
satisfy their own personal agendas.
The negative forces are at work at all
levels; from the seekers of world domination
down to the sneak th ef skulking in the
shadows of your street. I meant to mention in
the beginning that I consider there to be just
three basic types of people walking around
on Planet Ear h. I have already described
one of these above, those who follow the
negative, destructive pat i of life.
Another even larger group, one with
which we are all quite familiar, is composed
of those people who are so engrossed in
the narrow focus of their own lives that they
are completely unaware of or disinterested
in the larger issues. It could be that the
current generation has been completely de-
sensitized to the- significance of the turmoil
and confusion that surrounds them today.
Do they stop tp po der the indications
of global warming, the seismic activity that
is literally causing Moth r Earth to quiver?
There are so many ch nges taking place
during this last few decades that I guess
many young people just accept it as normal.
I am completing eight decades, and
I can tell you, this is a different world from
the one I knew as a young man. It's a more
mature world, a more exciting world, a world


of infinite possibilities for those who have
eyes to see.
Now we come to the third group of
citizens with which I am familiar. They are
a small but growing minority. They are the
ones who have gained sufficient wisdom
that they are capable of lifting their level of
awareness above the common place and
discern a Positive, Creative Force quietly at
work. These are the ones who realize that
these are the times in which those who do
discern The Force at work must get their own
houses in order, and seek out the fellowship
of kindred souls. It's time to put those things
behind us that do not contribute to our self
respect and sense of well being...
It's time to gather up our strength to be
the best person we can be. When we can
do this we will be able to deal with whatever
confronts us in the coming days. This is a
critical time in this country politically with the
presidential election just around the corner.
Critical in the sense that millions of people
are so emotionally involved, and so much
energy is being expended.
There are some good and honest people
in politics, I know that, just as there are good
and honest people in big business and the
military. However, politicians, big business,
the military nor any other such group is going
to right the wrongs of the world or lead Planet
Earth into an Age of Enlightenment. The
great awakening is occurring in the lives of
individuals, individuals who feel the presence
of something stirring within that encourages
them to lift their sights higher, to be that which
they hold as their ideal.
The most. valuable possession a
person can have is a clear conscience. Your
conscience is a reflection of how closely
your thoughts and actions coincide with
your own values, ideals and standards.
The degree of inner peace and self
acceptance which we enjoy is a direct result
of our awareness of this reflection. It must
be understood that all people do not share
a similar conscience. The superficial aspects
of conscience are influenced by our cultural
upbringing, family, church, school, friends.
These can determine what you consider
to be appropriate or inappropriate behavior.
As we mature and grow in wisdom, our
conscience is gradually refined and we discard
some limiting beliefs of our adolescence
and acquire new and different values. The
essence of conscience is a wonderful
loving and wise being within each of us
yearning to be expressed.
Truly negative behaviors and attitudes
such as lying, stealing, cheating, hatred and
bitterness have no place in the life of anyone
who seeks to follow a path of Love, Peace,
and Harmony. They are never justified, and
will gnaw away at any sense of inner peace
and self-respect. We all need help at times in
remembering and doing just what we know
is right.
I am so happy to assure anyone who
doesn't know already, there is a wonderful
Loving, Enlightening, Encouraging Force at
work in our world today, in spite of outward
appearances. A Force that is only too eager
to guide and assist you in your struggle up
the path.
Just ask.
You are never alone.


Love, Peace, and Harmony,
John D. Alexander

Deati andife

One man suffered great and unstandable pain for any human to bear. He was
beaten so badly that blood was gushing out of places on his body where the flesh had
been ripped off by whips and tools the soldiers used.
He had done absolutely nothing to deserve this pain and misery which He had
upon Him. He was mocked and made fun of by several, but not once did He mock in
return. He healed the blind, cured the sick, and even brought the dead back to life. How
could a man this caring and kind deserve such a punishment that He received?
However, this was no punishment to the One which created Jesus Christ, it was His
plan. Jesus was simply on a journey, a journey which would save us all. He came to this
earth facing trials and temptations that soon after we humans would have to face. He
was tempted in ways we would give in, in a heartbeat, but He did not. He died a painful
death on that rugged cross. For only one reason, you. Christ gave His life so that you
could be able to be forgiven for your sins. He suffered that unbearable pain so that we
could live eternal with Him in a place that is unimaginable, that it's so extraordinary.
When you look at a cross, it says a lot depending on what you believe, but why not
believe in the unseen? When I look at a cross I see a man giving his life in order for me
to have a life.
Jesus Christ's death gave us life. Charley E. Campbell ~
TCHS Class of 2010
"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that
whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life." John 3:16

Bulldogs stomp hapless Jefferson 50-0


BY AARON PORTWOOD
The Taylor County Bulldogs
rebounded from a season-opening
loss Friday night in Dorsett
Stadium, by winning a lopsided
50-0 fumble fest over Jefferson
County to even their record at 1-1
on the year.


The game was delayed 30
minutes due to a thunderstorm, but
fans still made it home on time
after officials went to a running
clock in the second half due to the
Bulldogs' commanding lead.
The game slowed to a snail's
pace several times due to injuries,
but both teams kept it exciting by
combining for what might be a
record 21 fumbles, 14 turnovers
and 17 penalties (in a game
shortened considerably by a
running clock!)
Despite playing without three
injured players, losing six of 11
fumbles, throwing an interception
and committing 9 penalties for 75
yards, the Bulldogs easily rolled
over the 0-2 Tigers by scoring 35
unanswered first half points and
tacking on a touchdown in each of
the final two shortened quarters.
The Dogs never had to attempt a
punt or a field goal.
The game featured plenty of
mistakes and several bone-


crushing hits, knocking three
players out of the game and
earning at least two a trip to the
hospital via ambulance.
Taylor out-gained the Tigers 298
to 12 in total yards, as Jefferson
was held to minus 52 yards rushing
in the second half, and the


Bulldogs scored five TDs rushing
and two more passing. The
Bulldogs had 10 first downs,
compared to only 5 by Jefferson.
Jefferson committed just as
many mistakes as the Bulldogs --
fumbling 10 times (losing six),
throwing an interception and
committing 8 penalties for 80
yards -- but the Tigers did not take
advantage of the miscues like
Taylor County did.
QB Quentin Tucker completed 2
of 5 passes for 73 yards with 2 TDs
and an interception, while picking
up 34 yards and two more TDs on
nine carries.
Senior tailback Bryckoski
Jackson led the ground game for
Taylor with 146 yards and 2 TDs
on 16 carries, despite logging only
one carry in the second half (a 9-
yard TD run).
Rkgge "Kihg p telp6tt' paVte' the"
way for Jackson with his blocking
and finished with 7 carries for 48
yards and a TD as the Bulldogs had


Members of the TCHS defense -- Calvin Bass (75), Wesley
Brandon (22) and Quentin Tucker (4) -- get ready for the
next play.
























-Sp. 9 Away Myo 5:0-6:3


28 total carries for 225 yards and 5
TDs.
Tucker completed just two
passes, but they both went for
touchdowns, including a 53-yarder
to Chad Hill and a 20-yarder
caught by Reggie King.
Jefferson started off on the
wrong foot, with a punt snap
sailing over the punter's head for a
21-yard loss down to the Tigers'
own 24-yard line.
Taylor gave the ball right back,
as Tucker fumbled and recovered a
snap before making a bad option
pitch to Jackson that was recovered
by Jefferson after an 8-yard loss
and returned 21 yards to near
midfield.
The Tigers were forced to punt
three plays later, and Jackson got
on a roll with an 18-yard run in
which he broke three tackles
followed up by a 7-yard run. King
ran for 5 yards before Tucker threw
up a jump ball that Hill pulled
away from a Tiger defender and
ran 53 yards for a TD.
A bad snap on the extra point
kick was picked up by Tucker, who
scrambled around and heaved a
pass to Jackson for a 2-point play
and an 8-0 lead. Junior offensive
lineman Eddie Weeks was injured
on the drive and was taken to the
hospital with a leg injury.
Big tackles by King and Taylor
Woods forced another Tiger punt
and another bad snap that mas
knocked .out of bounds after a 21-
yard loss.
The Bulldogs' ground game
continued to find success behind
the, rushing of Jackson and the
blocking of Cody Davis, Zach
Morris, Woods, Josh Wells, Kyle
Linton and King, but the drive
ended when Jackson lost a fumble
at the Tigers' 8-yard line on the
final play of the first quarter.
Jefferson fumbled the ball back
on the very next play at their own
5-yard line, and Jackson punched
the ball into the endzone one play
later to give the Bulldogs a 15-0
lead after Taylor Ratliff's extra
point kick.
A big hit by James Houston, a
tackle for loss by King, a huge 9-
yard sack by Johnathan Smith and
another tackle for loss by Jahbari
Bishop forced another Jefferson
punt, which was nearly blocked by
Jackson. Tucker returned the kick
30 yards down to the Tiger 12 yard
line and Tucker scored on a naked
bootleg on the next play to make
the score 22-0 after Ratliff's kick.
A long kickoff return gave the
Tigers good starting position and a
40-yard pass moved the ball to the
Taylor's 10-yard line, but a holding
penalty and two big plays by King
on defense stopped the drive and
forced a 30-yard field goal try that
was blocked.
Taylor took over on their own 33
and nearly fumbled the ball away
on first down when Tucker's pitch
bounced off Jackson, but was
recovered for a four-yard loss.
The Bulldogs saddled up
Jackson and rode the big senior for
five straight plays and 51 yards
before King capped the drive with
three straight runs and scored from
three yards out to make the score
28-0.
The big plays continued on
defense for the Bulldogs, as Caleb
Murphy delivered a knock-out hit
on one of the Tigers' best players
(who was taken off the field on a
stretcher) on an incomplete pass.
Jarquis Ellis made a fantastic
interception on the very next play
to set up a pair of long runs (18 and
25) yards by Jackson running
behind Craig Tuten, Wesley
Brandon, Davis and Wells.
Tucker fumbled and recovered a
snap at the Tiger 18, but threw an
interception in the endzone on the
next play.
However, the Tigers gave the
ball right back with a fumble on
the next play and Tucker redeemed
himself with a 20-yard TD pass to
King, who broke two tackles and
hurdled another defender on his
way to the endzone.
Ratliff's kick gave the Bulldogs
a dominating 35-0 halftime lead.
Jefferson fumbled twice more in
the closing 30 seconds and lost the
second one as the half ended.
The miscues continued as the
second half began with Tucker
fumbling away the first snap of the
third quarter, but King forced a
fumble on a 20-yard sack the next
play and Brandon recovered

Blount leads Ducks again

For the second straight week, game into overtime, then blasting carries, including four


Perry's LeGarrette Blount turned
some heads in the college football
world as he helped lead. No. 17
Oregon to a double overtime 32-26
win over Purdue.
Although playing a backup roll
to starter Jeremiah Johnson,
Blount came in to ignite the Ducks,
who were trailing 20-3, scoring a
touchdown on a five-yard plunge
in the fourth quarter to send the


in from two yards out in the second
overtime period to give the Ducks
the win.
For the game, the 6-3, 238-
pound junior rushed for 132 yards
on 12 carries, including a 72-yard
jaunt.
It was the second straight week
Blount has rushed for 132 yards.
He leads the Ducks in rushing this
season with 285 yards on 34


touchdowns.
His yards-per-carry average is
8.4 yards.
"LeGarrette is a big back that
you are seeing get more, and more
comfortable in this offense," said
Oregon Coach Mike Bellotti in a
radio broadcast interview.
Oregon (3-0) entertains Boise
State this Saturday.

another Tiger fumble for the
Bulldogs the following play after a


13-yard loss.
Taylor's next drive lasted two
plays before Tucker fumbled the
ball away on another bad option
pitch, but the Bulldog defense


pushed Jefferson backwards on all
three plays including a big sack
by Woods before forcing a 14-
yard punt.
Taylor got back on track with a


nice 5-play, 37-yard scoring drive

thanks to a pair of nice QB option
keepers by Tucker for 14 yards and
King moved the Bulldogs 13 yards

caregivers retreat

The 10th annual Big Bend Caregiver's Retreat will be held Friday, Sept.
26, at St. Paul's United Methodist Church in Tallahassee.
All caregivers in the Big Bend areas are invited to attend. During the
retreat, the Sleuths Mystery Theater from Orlando will entertain the
caregivers.
"Caregivers face special problems, especially those taking care of
themselves while caring for loved ones," organizers said. "For this reason,
the retreats have been organized to give the caregivers a break, to let them
know that they are not forgotten and to provide a day of relaxation, fun and
companionship with others facing the same problems."
Sponsored by the Area Agency on Aging of North Florida and facilitated
by the Alzheimer's Project, Inc., the retreat will start at 11 a.m. and end at
3 p.m. A catered lunch will be served to all caregivers and respite care will
be provided.
Limited seating is available and the event is expected to fill up fast, so
caregivers are encouraged to call Lori at 850-386-2778.
Other hosts of the event are Home Instead Senior Care, Beltone Hearing
Center and Home Helpers. There is no charge to caregivers for the event.
The church is located 1700 N. Meridian Rd. in Tallahassee.

bright even on bad days. You
heard God's whisper calling
you home, you didn't want to go and leave us alone. You loved
us so much, you held on tight, till all the strength was gone and
you could no longer fight.
He called your name twice before, you knew you couldn't
make Him wait anymore. So, you gave your hand to God and
slowly drifted away, knowing that with our love we will be
together again someday.

from King and Brandon.
Another bad snap on the extra
point kick was scooped up by
Ratliff, who made a nice run for a
two-point conversion to give
Taylor a 43-0 lead.
Ellis, Woods and Jackson stuffed
the Tigers on three straight plays,
including a sack, and the Tiger
kicker managed a one-yard punt
that gave the Bulldogs excellent
field position at the Jefferson 29.
A 15-yard personal foul penalty
on Jefferson moved the ball to the
14, but Johnathan Smith lost 5
yards and fumbled away a hand-off
on 2nd down to give the ball back
to the Tigers.
Curtis Mango made a tackle for
a loss and Murphy made another
nice tackle before Woods, Brandon
and Mango combined to throw a
hapless Tiger runner for a 7-yard
loss and force the Tiger's fifth
punt.
Tucker scored on an option
keeper from 14 yards out on the
very next play (set up by Ellis' 24-
yard punt return) and Ratliff's PAT
made the final score 50-0.

The Tigers had one last drive,
but the suffocating Bulldog
defense stopped it with a sack on
4th and 1.
Fittingly, the Bulldogs ended the
game by losing another fumble on
the final play on an option pitch
from Tucker to Smith, but it did not
dampen Taylor's celebration for a
convincing victory over a longtime
rival that lost to FAMU High, 20-0
the previous week.
The Bulldogs will take on 1-1
Alachua Santa Fe this Friday night
at Dorsett Stadium beginning at
7:30 p.m. Alachua lost to (2-0)
Newberry 47-18 in the season-
opener before rebounding with a
28-14 win over (0-2) Middleburg
last week.
The Bulldogs fell to Newberry
27-0 in a preseason "Kickoff
Classic" that saw Taylor commit 8
fumbles (losing 3) and 13
penalties.
Counting the preseason game,
the Bulldogs have fumbled 25
times and lost 11 in three games.
Taylor must also work on
eliminating penalties, after
averaging 11 for 85 yards in their
first three games.

Taylor County's community has


changed over the past 40 years

Dear Editor:
I am writing this letter to the
community of Taylor County.
First, let's define community.
Community--a society of people
having common rights and
privileges or common interests,
civil, political or ecclesiastical; or
living under the same laws and
regulations.
This word may signify a
commonwealth or state, a body
polite, or a particular society or
order of men within a state as a
community of monks, and it is
often used for the public or people
in general without any definite
limits, according to Noah-Webster.
I have lived in Taylor County
more than 40 years ago. I had
moved away to pursue an
education and now I have returned.
For the last couple of years I have
been standing in the background
watching, listening and learning. It
is to my dismay that this


community is not what it used to
be.
Back when I was growing up
here you could go to bed without
locking your doors and windows at
night. This community was one
that cared about people, each other,
who helped and supported each
other. There wasn't a whole lot of
lip service. There was a lot of
action, of doing, of making good
things happen.
Now it seems that everyone is
out to get what they can without
regard to their neighbors. I'm not
saying get into each other's
business. I'm saying help each
other when needed. If you see
someone down be the better
person, help them in whatever way
you can.
My dad was not a religious man,
but he told us to never turn away a
stranger because you could be
entertaining an angel. This applies
to everyone, businesses too. This


community has always been closed
mouth; it was a community that
cared and pulled together when
necessary and needed.
Well the time has come where it
is needed now, with the economy
the way it is. Cutbacks in jobs,
schools and even with our senior
citizens. I have been told by some
seniors in this community that
Meals on Wheels is the only real
meal they get due to the fact that
Social Security just doesn't pay the
bills, that they have to choose
between food or medicine and that
some even buy dog or cat food to
eat. How would you like to be in
those shoes? I've tasted cat food; it
is nasty.
Then there is the situation with
the cutbacks in our schools. Come
on people, these kids are our
future. The free lunch program
cutback, along with the cutback on

Letters to the Editor


Resident receives response from


DOT concerning US. 19 palm trees


Editors' Note: William P. Palmer
forwarded the Taco Times a letter he
sent to Tallahassee regarding the
Department of Transportation's
planting of new palm trees along U.S.
19, as well as the response he
received.
Gov. Charlie Crist:
As a Department of Corrections
employee, it is a never ending
choirs of "no money, no more pens,
no more post it notes," but the palm
trees have broke the camels back.
DOT has showed up in Perry,
Fla. and cut down, dug up and
thrown in the landfill all the palm
trees down the center median on
Highway 19 in Perry because they


were not in the center of the
median and this was to make it
safer for the everyday driver. This
is being accomplished with a
$117,850 landscaping project.
Well, now they are replacing the
one tree in most cases with up to 5
new trees. Let me get this right,
you cut down one tree and
replaced it with up to 5 trees so I'll
be safer?
To add insult to injury, DOT is
doing this with money we don't
have? Oh, it comes from a
different budget. Sorry but
someone needs to get a handle on
this sort of stupid spending.

Mr. Palmer:
This is in further response to
your recent e-mail to Governor
Crist.
Due to immense public support
for highway beautification, the
Department of Transportation has
made great strides in the last 10
years to make our state roadways
more aesthetically pleasing. Not
only have we taken up the
challenge of landscaping on our
own, several years ago the Florida
legislature passed a bill which
makes it the law. Under Florida
Statute 334.044 the Department of
Transportation is required to spend
1.5 percent of its annual
Transportation Construction
budget towards landscaping.
This comes to 30-40 million
dollars annually depending upon
the construction budget of any
given year. In District 2 (which
Perry falls under) we make the
attempt to meet 1.5 percent of our
District Construction budget and
this figure is in the millions of
dollars annually.
With this mandate, it is the
district's responsibility to locate
projects within our 18 counties so
that they can be landscaped.
Sometimes we locate projects
that will allow us to design areas
that never have been landscaped
before. However, in most cases
what we find are locations that
should be upgraded. In the case of
Perry, we located a potential
project for the curbed medians on,
SR 55 from Fenholloway Bridge to
Julia Street.
The corridor's landscaping
consisted of older, declining
cabbage palms which had been
growing in random clusters
throughout the medians. We
believed this was a good candidate
to upgrade. The district felt that
this corridor would be better
served if a new landscaping project
,,- Please see page 3


Even as a child, I liked the prospect of a
vacation and would pack my bag to
accompany almost any relative or friend on
a road trip.
McKenzie, Ala., was a small crossroads
about 20 miles from my home, and each
summer, a friend who lived there invited me
to spend a few days.
You would have thought I was going to
Paris. I took enough shorts outfits to last a
week, and other essentials, along with
'sunglasses, a deck of'tards'," lr l"jks,' lil';
gloss and tennis shoes.
I was six.
My good friend, Joni, was also invited for
the trip; she packed enough for two weeks
but was homesick by 11 p.m. of the first
night. I remember that we all piled in a
station wagon with blankets and pillows to
take Joni back to Greenville, and then to
return to McKenzie. I'm sure my friend's
parents were wondering ;why in the world
they suggested this sleep-over.
"Now Susan, do you wanf to go home too?"
asked the father, a nice and likeable man
who cracked jokes as easily as he cracked a
smile. Even though he drove a truck for a
living, he didn't want to make this trip twice
in one night.
"No sir," I said, hoping I wouldn't be exiled.
Steadily, we made the 20-mile trip back to
McKenzie in the dark of the night. Trust me,
no one else was on that road at midnight.
My willingness to travel without
homesickness, made me the pick for any
other outings this particular friend might
take. So when her grandparents, who lived
20 miles away on the other side of my town,
extended an invitation, I said, in the spirit of
my ancestors, "Let me get my purse."
That trip stands out as one of the most
memorable one of my childhood...and I
honestly can't pinpoint why.
The grandparents didn't have air
conditioning.
There wasn't a store or business within
sight, not to mention another house for a
mile or two.
We didn't have any electronic toys.
We weren't given money or other
enticements.
We were just welcomed into her
grandparents' home and fed like royalty:
fresh peas and roast, homemade biscuits,
and fruit cobbler for dessert. Ice cream in
the afternoons. Lemonade all day long.
We were given full reign of the farm which
was wonderfully shaded and allowed for
miles and miles of pastures on which to
roam.


We laid on the cool linoleum floor in the
kitchen with electric fans blowing our hair
as we colored in books, and passed around
paper dolls.
We built forts and made mud pies.
And because a revival was underway, for a
couple of nights, we put on our sundresses
and loaded up for church. They had paper
fans bearing pictures of Jesus and the name
of the local funeral, home. Everybody used.
them as.the service heated up.
' -They"had an attendance chart on thewall
and an artificial arrangement of flowers up
front. They had hymn books, a piano and
loud voices. They had clear glass windows
and a floor which creaked, thus pointing
accusingly at you if you tried to slip out
unnoticed.
My friend and I soaked up our
surroundings like a sponge. When we
returned to the farm that night, we were
thoroughly cleansed and exhausted too. But
the next day, we had our own revival service,
mimicking the preacher's loud voice and
declaring to the farm animals the very real
possibility of eternal damnation.
Can I hear a moo?
If there was a t.v., I don't remember it.
I don't even remember a radio.
But I do remember endless play, a slick
bathtub, dissolving into crisply dried sheets
for sleep and being adored by grandparents
who weren't even my own.
Then it was time to go home, and I've
never liked goodbyes.
"I bet you're ready to be home for awhile,"
my mother said, after she picked me up and
we were traveling back home.
I squeaked out an affirmative "unhunnh"
because I didn't want to hurt her feelings.
After all, I was only 8; I should be homesick
or something, and I knew it.
But I wasn't; I'd had a really good time. I
could have stayed a few more days, or I
could have left again, the very next day for
another outing. I wasn't Christopher
Columbus, but I wasn't Emily Dickinson
either. I knew there was a great big
world out there, and I felt obliged to
personally go find it, one small settlement
after another.
That's when I came to understand--even
then--that you don't have to go far in order
to have a vacation.
You just need a little distance from the
routine.
A little time to let the heart grow fonder.
Some fine food.
Some fine people.
And a fine friend to share it all with.

Letters to the Editor


Palms violated 'clear zones'


PALM TREES
Continued from page 2
was implemented with new
cabbage palms uniformly located
down the center of the medians.
To be clear, this was more than a
beautification project and it is
important to understand that the
older cabbage palms were located
in designated "clear zones" in the
medians. These clear zones must


be kept free of any hazards or
obstacles which could harm
travelers in the case of an errant
vehicle.
These palms were in violation of
current engineering standards and
when the decision was made to re-
landscape this corridor, the district
decided to remove the existing
palms and plant the new palms
along the center of each median.
The placement of the new


palms was vital in keeping this
corridor up to current safety
standards.
Thank you for your attention to
this project. We hope this clarifies
the intention behind the Perry
landscaping.
Sincerely,
Charles W. Baldwin, P.E.
District Secretary
Florida Department of
Transportation


'If you look at it close, we



are a blessed community'


COMMUNITY
Continued from page 2
school supplies. Have you ever
been so hungry that you could not
concentrate in school or not had
notebook paper or school books to
learn with? Probably not, but these
kids need our help, look at the state
FCAT scores. Does that not tell us
anything?
Then there is the community
healthcare system. Have you ever
been to doctor's appointment and
had to wait three or four hours
before being seen? Or gone to the
local emergency room and waited
6-12 hours before ever seeing the
triage nurse only to wait another
two to three hours on a gurney in
the hallway before seeing a doctor.
Well I have and it is no fun. We are
so lucky to have a local hospital
with a staff that makes sacrifices.
They put up with their place of

Thursday in Madison


work being called a bandaid
station; they put up with not
getting raises in the past four
years; they put up with pay cuts
and yet they are still there doing
there jobs to the best of their ability
and with what they have available
to work with.
With all these concerns in this
community all we want to do is
gripe and complain instead of
doing something about it. Yet the
community votes to have new
palm trees planted while digging
up and destroying the old ones.
Couldn't this money have been put
to better use? Like helping our
seniors which are our history,
helping our schools which is our
future and helping DMH which is
our health. Without DMH we
would have to drive 1 to 2 1/2
hours to receive health care at the
nearest hospital. Without our
doctors the same thing would


happen. Yes we need specialty
doctors in our community but how
can we have them or anything
mentioned above without
community support?
I urge each of you to be the stand-
up community you can be and
support your community. After all
we all live here. Do we downgrade
or speak badly about our own home
in which we eat and sleep and play?
Then why should we beat up on our
community or each other? If
everyone gave $1 each month to the
community, I believe we could
make good changes to this
community in which we live. Let's
quit beating ourselves up and look
at our neighbor and ourselves and
say "good job." If we really look at
it up close we are a blessed
community, we are a good and
caring community.
