District is $2 million over budget


As the Taylor County School
District looks to dig itself out of a
financial hole several years in the
making, new reports chronicling
the 2007-08 fiscal year show that
the district's general fund finished
the year more than $2 million over
budget.
The district was forced to make
major cuts this past summer, and
last month the school board
approved a bare bones budget to
ensure its general fund balance









/B-


would be in the black by the end of
the current fiscal year as mandated
by the Florida Department of
Education.
Wrapping up the 2007-08 fiscal
year, Finance Director Vicki
McManus presented the school
board last week with a series of
reports showing that expenses
exceeded revenues by $1.2 million
dollars in the general fund.
According to the final 2007-08
budget, the district was expecting


$24.6 million in revenues versus
$24.4 million in expenses for the
general fund. Coupled with
$615,000 in transfers from other
funds, the budget called for a
$787,000 surplus for the year.
Instead, revenues fell short
approximately $186,000, and
expenses overran the budget by
$1.8 million. With transfers of
$586,000, the general fund ended
the year with a $1.2 million deficit.
According to the report, the


general fund balance on June 30
was $2.1 (the fund began the
2007-08 year with a $865,000
deficit from previous years).
A detailed look at the budget
breakdown versus actual totals
shows that while state funding was
$170,000 above the expected level,
federal funding was short $75,000,
local property tax revenues for
operational purposes was short
$166,000 and other local funding
(including fee-based services and


lottery funds) was $119,000 below
expectations.
On the expense side, of the 18
expenditure categories, 12 were
over budget.
Instruction, which includes
personnel, was over budget by
$1.01 million or 8.0 percent.
McManus said that because of
the way the budget was "inputted"
at the start of the year (before she

In cattle roping



Sessions looks to lasso national title


By MARK VIOLA
Staff writer
Cody Randall Se4sions has been
roping cattle so long he can't
remember when hi started... and
he's only 12,
But don't hold his age against
him, because the youngster is on
his way to the national
championships in 4 few weeks...
where there is no junior division.
Cody, along with his partner
Clint Summers, 17, :f Lake Butler,
won the Florida Championship
held this past March in Green
Cove Springs, earn ig their way to
the United State ream Roping
Championship (USTRC) Nationals
in Oklahoma City, Okla.
The event, which will feature
thousands of the top team ropers
from around the world, runs from
Oct. 25 to Nov. 2. Cody will be one
of the youngest competitors there.
His story, however, begins long
before that.
Cody lives with his parents,
Randall and Jaime Sessions, and
two sisters, JoDee, age 7, and
Maddee, age 3, in Lake Bird, and
the whole family has ties to the
arena.
Cody, Jaime and JoDee sat down
last week to talk about the
upcoming trip to Oklahoma City
and how Cody's journey has led
him to this point.
Before we continue, however,
here's a quick breakdown for the
uninitiated on what team roping is
all about.,


First you need steer and two
cowboys (or cowgirls). The
cowboys line up in chutes on either
side of the steer. Once the gates
open and the steer gets a head start,
the header--that's Cody--has to
rope the steer's head. Once he's
done, the heeler--that's Clint--
ropes the steer's back legs.
Sounds easy enough?
In the USTRC events, teams
have to do it five times.
"When you add your times
together, you've got to be faster
than everybody else to win," Cody


4It's more than a

passion to me.

That's all I do'


said.
Still think you can do it?
While Cody is quick to say his
and Clint's times depend on
conditions and the temperament of
the steer, they usually average
around seven seconds from' start to
finish.
Ropers are not separated by age,
so Cody usually finds himself
among fields consisting of mostly
adults. In fact, when he reaches the
nationals, he will be one of the
only ropers his age competing.
Instead, USTRC uses a number


system to sort the field.
"I'm a four and Clint is a nine, so
we've got the roping number 13,"
Cody explained.
At the nationals, teams will
range from 15 at the high end
down to eight.
Aside from competing, Cody is
looking forward to experiencing
the event itself and "getting to
meet all the big dogs," including
world champions from around the
world.
How long has Cody been
roping?
"I don't know," he said. "How
long have I?" he asked, turning to
his mother.
"He's been practicing using a
dummy since he was five," Jaime
said.
"But we didn't let him rope off a
horse until he was 10."
Cody's exploits aren't limited to
team roping, and he competes in
junior rodeos around the region in
calf roping, break-away roping and
shoot dogging. Sooner or later, he
always comes back to team roping.
"That's his passion. That's his
gift," Jaime said.
"It's more than a passion to me,"
Cody added. "That's all I do."
His love of horses and riding he
gets from his parents, both of
whom competed in the past.
"I've been riding since I was a
kid," Jaime said.
"I'm trying to get them to rope,

of the top ropers from around the world.

but I can't," Cody said of his
parents. "I guess they're too busy
hauling us around."
For Cody isn't alone anymore.
JoDee is now also competing at
junior rodeos and has already won
a saddle for barrel racing.


"I'm the youngest one there," she
said proudly.
She's also currently leading the
Southern Junior Rodeo
Association for barrel racing this
season.
"So far," Cody added.
"And I'm not going to give it
up," she quickly countered.
Cody is home-schooled and


attends Pleasant Grove Baptist
Church with his family.
Aside from roping, he also loves
to hunt.
"When I'm not roping, that's
what I am doing," he said.
"But I rope more than anything,"
he added, just to be sure there
wasn't any doubt.
Cody gives thanks to a number


of people, including Bradley
Massey and Chad Agner, who get
credit for helping and training him.
"I'd like to thank God for the
talent he's give me and the ability.
Even if I go out there and go bad, I
know he'll be with me.
"I'd really like to thank my mom
and dad for supporting me. I
couldn't do it without them."

Farmers, ranchers


can recoup storm


losses from Fay


Agricultural producers in Taylor
County, along with 58 other
counties in the state, are now
eligible for federal disaster
assistance as a result of damage
from Tropical Storm Fay in late
August.
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson made the
announcement last week.
The U.S. Department of
Agriculture has designated 36
counties impacted by the storm as
primary disaster areas and 23
others as contiguous disaster areas,
and counties in each category are
eligible for disaster aid.
Taylor County is listed as a
contiguous disaster area.
"We are very appreciative of the
Bush Administration's decision to
honor our request in having these
counties declared disaster areas so
that farmers and ranchers impacted
by the storm can seek the disaster
assistance that many of them need
to rebuild their businesses,"
Bronson said.
On Sept. 3, Bronson asked Gov.
Charlie Crist to seek federal
disaster declarations for the
impacted counties that were
battered by high winds, excessive
rainfall, flooding and tornadoes
associated with Tropical Storm
Fay as it relentlessly hammered
Florida between Aug. 19 and 24.
Taylor County received more.
than 18 inches of rain in some
areas, and flooding was reported
throughout the county.
Agricultural producers in the 59
counties are eligible to be
considered for Farm Service
Agency (FSA) emergency loans,
and the Supplemental Revenue
Assistance Program (SURE),
which was approved as part of the
Food, Conservation and Energy
Act of 2008.
Those wishing to apply are
asked to call Sharee Lamb in the
FSA Mayo office at 800-243-9912. ,
FSA is currently developing
.. guilation .and software for the
SURE program, so while FSA
emergency loans are the only


program available immediately,
Bronson said he anticipates that
additional resources will be
available to those producers with
losses as soon as the SURE
program is implemented.
FSA will consider each
application on its own merits, and
local FSA offices can provide
impacted farmers with further
information.
Counties receiving the primary
disaster declaration were: Alachua,
Baker, Bay, Bradford, Brevard,
Charlotte, Clay, Collier, Columbia,
Dixie, Duval, Flagler, Gilchrist,
Glades, Hamilton, Hendry,
Highlands, Holmes, Indian River,
Jefferson, Lee, Leon, Madison,
Marion, Martin, Nassau,
Okeechobee, Putnam, Seminole,
St. Johns, St. Lucie, Suwannee,
Union, Volusia, Wakulla and
Washington.
Counties receiving the
contiguous county disaster
declaration were: Broward,
Calhoun, Citrus, De Soto,
Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Hardee,
Jackson, Lafayette, Lake, Levy,
Liberty, Miami-Dade, Monroe,
Orange, Osceola, Palm Beach,
Polk, Sarasota, Sumter, Taylor and

Refuge House celebrates:



No fatalities



in two years
On Wednesday, Oct. 8, President Jessica Turnmire
toured members of the Perry Woman's Club through
the.month of October, highlighting:
Prescription drug awareness
Domestic violence awareness
Halloween safety and
Breast cancer awareness.
"October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Don't
forget to schedule your mammogram, and remind your
friends to do so also," she urged.
Members were presented fold-out, purse-size
Prescription Drug Medicine Records which detail the
name, dosage and purpose of each prescription.
Members were encouraged to keep these records
handy, presenting them as needed to doctors,
pharmacists or nurses.
Turnmire. then introduced Debra McGrew as guest
speaker of the day. Her presentation on domestic
violence awareness had an unusually light approach.
"We're celebrating today," said McGrew, director of
Refuge House for Taylor and Madison counties.
"We've had no fatality in the past two years in our
county." Applause followed, as did more good news.
"We have four in our program who have gone back to
get degrees through Even Start," she said. "It's nice to
have good news."
Along with the good news, McGrew brought a plea
for clothing. "When you're cleaning your closets,
please share any professional/business clothes which
women could use when they're starting over and going
for interviews," she requested. This "Dress For
Success" emphasis began in 1997 in New York City to
enable women to achieve economic independence.
"We'd be very grateful if the women of Perry and
Taylor County would clean their closets and bring any
business-appropriate clothing to the November
meeting or to Burns Monument Company. As you


I.. '..- |

know, women come in all different shapes and sizes,
and we have women-in-need of all shapes and sizes, so
there's probably something in your closet that would
give them the proper attire for job interviews."
McGrew also voiced a plea for furniture and linens,
again enabling victims to establish homes where they
can be self-sufficient. "Affordable housing is so hard
to come by; it helps a lot if we can provide furniture
items and linens."
In the previous year, Refuge House has served 400
women and children through shelter services, crisis
intervention or outreach. "We've had 15-18 in house
for the whole year, at all times," she underscored.
Corresponding sheriffs department statistics show 74
calls about domestic violence and 45 arrests.
In the question-and-answer period, McGrew
underscored the importance of statistics--locally,
statewide and nationally--to support the services which
victims require. "We need these statistics in order to
track and reach victims," she added. Relocation funds
are available through the state attorney's office, she
said, but statistics, arrest reports and supporting
evidence are critical.
According to McGrew, women who are victims of
domestic violence often return to the same
environment as many as nine times. "Why? Because
they have no finances, no housing, etc. We have to
make sure they have the opportunity to get out of these
dangerous situations," she said.


A benefit trail ride will be held this Saturday, Oct.
18, at the R & 0 Ranch Equestrian Park, covering
nine miles of "beautiful trails," and benefitting
Refuge House, a shelter for victims of
domestic/sexual violence.
"It is beautiful," Debra McGrew told members of
the Perry Woman's Club last week. "If you don't
enjoy riding a horse, wagon rides are available and
you really don't want to miss this." Led by Ron
Clayton, the trail will lead toward a barbecue lunch
at noon followed by an auction. A $15 donation is
requested.


"We are very grateful to Dan Simmons at Buckeye
who came up with this idea," McGrew said, also
expressing appreciation to Clayton, R&O Ranch,
Cuneo Creative, Jill Henneberg and the Suwannee
River Water Management District.
The R & 0 is located in southwestern Lafayette
County. (Travel south on U.S. 19 to S.R. 51 and
proceed north to CR357. Turn right on CR 357 and
the R & 0 is on the right.) Please call 850-922-6062
to register or obtain additional information. The ride
begins at 9 a.m., and trailers will be welcomed at 8
a.m.

#1 Madison vanquishes Bulldogs 69-7


BY AARON PORTWOOD
There was not much good for
Taylor County fans to take away
from Friday night's embarrassing,
69-7 District 2-2A loss to Madison
County at Dorsett Stadium in
Perry.
On the bright side, Taylor (2-4)


managed to become just the second
team to score points against
unbeaten Madison (4-0) this
season.
The bad news is that the
Cowboys scored on all 10 of its
first 10 possessions and ended the
final offensive series of the game
at the Bulldogs' 1-yard line, where
they mercifully elected not to take
a final snap with 18 seconds left,
having already topped their
season-high scoring total despite a
running clock in the second half.
The defending state champion
Cowboys are ranked #1 in
Florida's Class 2A and as high as
#8 in the nation (according to
MaxPreps, #30 according to
Rivals.com and #43 according to
ESPN's "FAB 50") in some polls.
Madison showed it is deserving of
those lofty rankings (of all. schools
in the U.S. regardless'of size ahd
classification) by rolling to a 49-0
halftime lead over their
neighboring rival.
Madison's previous biggest win
this year was a 63-0 decision two
weeks prior over the same
Suwannee County team that
defeated Taylor County 27-7 the
very next week.
The only other team to score on


Madison this season was East
Gadsden in a 52-15 loss on Oct. 3.
Madison played Taylor County
without its best defensive player,
Jacobbi McDaniel one of two
Cowboys who have verbally
committed to Florida State
University.


The other FSU commitment
from Madison, tailback Chris
Thompson, shredded the Bulldogs
for 192 yards and 3 TDs on just
nine carries (averaging 21.3 yards
per carry) despite limited playing
time.
His partner in the backfield.
Cory Akins, rushed 8 times fo- 77
yards and 3 TDs of his own, while
the rest of the Cowboys combined
for 15 carries for 178 3jid, and
two more touchdowns. Madison
rolled to a total of 32 carries for
447 yards and 8 TDs rushing.
Madison QB Kelvin Singletary
had minus-4 yards on one carry
and completed 1 of 4 passes for 18
yards and a touchdown, as the
Cowboys finished with a total of.
465 yards and 9 TDs. The
Cowboys' special teams got in on
the ;I ,nic i h\i blockin'__, t'.,o pun(t-.
.-no of .' hih-r led coa"one-d TD D
run on the next play and the other
that was blocked and returned .6
yards for a touchdown.
Taylor County's only score came
on an 82-yard TD run by super
sophomore Tony Jackson (10
carries, 97 yards, 1 TD), who was
called up from the Bulldog JV
squad and played the entire game
at tailback, as his brother


Bryckoski Jackson (8 carries, 64
yards) moved to fullback to replace
junior Reggie King.
Almost all of the Bulldogs' 147
rushing yards came on two long
runs by the Jackson brothers (82
yards for Tony, 39 yards for
Bryckoski) both in the second half.
Another JV player, QB Steve
Johnson, started his very first
varsity football game against one
of the best defenses in the state and
completed 1 of 7 passes for 35
yards. The strong-armed signal
caller had 8 carries for minus-7
yards and fumbled four times
(losing one) in the face of constant
pressure all night, but showed
impressive poise despite
overwhelming odds.
Quentin Tucker had one series at
quarterback but finished with 3
carries for minus-7 yards and one
fumbled snap (recovered).
Lavaski Williams was one of the
few bright, spots for Taylor, as he
caught Johnson's only completed
pass (a 35-yard jump ball that
Williams somehow wrestled away
from two Cowboy defenders) and
had an absolutely stunning 97-yard
kickoff return for a touchdown just
before halftime that was called
back due to offsetting personal foul
(unsportsmanlike conduct)
penalties against both teams that
officials ruled- happened during
Williams' return.
The flags, which generated a
lengthy discussion on the field
*betv.een the officials, resulted in
the kickoff return being negated
and the touchdown nullified.
Madison (12 penalties for 95
yards) was penalized another 15
yards for a third flag on the play
and was allowed to kickoff again.
This time Williams was stopped
after a 20-yard return and the
Cowboys maintained their 49-0
lead.
Madison's average starting field
position in the game was the
Bulldous'" 41-vard 'lne. -whllon
average Taylor's 11 possessions
started at their own 18-yard line
and ended with seven punts (two
blocked), two fumbles lost, the end
of the half and Jackson's lone
touchdown.
The Cowboys' 10 scoring drives
averaged just 41 yards and'took an
.average of just 3.3 plays.
The game started off with a

bang, as Johnathan Smith flattened
Madison's kicker on the opening
kickoff and was flagged 15 yards
for a personal foul. Tony Jackson
ripped off a 25-yard run on first
down, but the Bulldogs were
stuffed on the next three plays and
B. Jackson fumbled the ball away
on a 3rd and 10 run at midfield.
*Despite some nice defensive
plays by James Houston, B.
Jackson and Smith, Akins
converted a 4th and 5 play with a
30-yard run and Thompson scored
three plays later on a 4-yard run.
Trailing 7-0 with 5:25 left in the
first quarter, the Bulldogs appeared
to be on the move when Johnson
completed a 35-yard pass to
Williams, but. he was sacked on
2nd down and fumbled and


w-. '**(* 'V


recovered a snap on 3rd down
before Rodrick Wilson booted the
first of 7 punts.
Smith, George Gant, Jarquis
Ellis and Williams made defensive
stops before Akins scored on a 3-
yard run for Madison with 13
seconds left in the first quarter to
take a 14-0 lead.
Johnson nearly connected with
Williams on another long pass
play, but Taylor could not pick up a
first, down and Madison made the
score 21-0 less than 2 minutes into
the second quarter on a 23-yard run
by Akins.
B. Jackson ran for 13 yards and a
first down, before Taylor was
forced to punt again and
Thompson scored three plays later
on a 50-yard run untouched to give


the Cowboys a 28-0 lead.
Wilson's next punt was blocked
to set up a 1-yard TD run by Akins
and a 35-0 Madison lead with 5:20
to play in the first half.
Taylor went three-and-out and
Thompson returned Wilson's punt
48 yards for a touchdown, but it
was called back due to an illegal
block. Two plays later Thompson
scored on a 4-yard run to make the
score 42-0.
Wilson's next punt was blocked
again and returned six yards for a
touchdown and a 49-0 lead with
1:32 left in the half.
Williams picked up some nice
blocks and used his blazing speed
.to return the kickoff for a

yard TD pass despite good
defensive efforts by Tyler Jenkins,
Ellis and Caleb Murphy.
Fumbled snaps, a personal foWu
penalty and sack forced another
Bulldog punt in a third quarter that
featured only 10 offensive plays
(plus 2 kickoffs, a PAT, 1 punt and
3 penalties).
The final quarter lasted just 11
offensive plays, but that was


enough for Madison to score twice
and the Bulldogs to score once.
The Cowboys increased their
lead to 63-0 on a 33-yard QB
scramble, but T. Jackson answered
with an 82-yard run one play
later.
Bulldog kicker Taylor Ratliff
made his second touchdown-
saving tackle on a 63-yard kick
return, but Madison scored on a


42-yard run two plays later to
make the final 69-7.
In addition to playing without
King (a starter on both sides of the
ball), the Bulldogs were without
the services of two-way starter
Wesley Brandon (FB/LB) with a
knee injury and Taylor Woods
(OL/DL), as well as center Zach
Morris who did not return after
halftime due to injury.

The many descendants of Alton C. and Callie Scott Hendry at Forest Capital


Park for their 2008 reunion


Cookbook serves up tasty recipes and family lore


(ao t;yl aiuZlV/Vtye
<-7, c


1~V


On Saturday, Oct. 11, the
descendants of Alton C, and Gallie
Scott Hendry met at Forest Capital
Park to celebrate the publishing
and unveiling of a family
cookbook entitled "Hendry Home
Cooking & Heritage."
Alton and Callie Scott Hendry
had five children: Mildred (who
died in childhood), Samuel, Joyce
Hendry Boatwright, Charles and
Norman.
Samuel, the only surviving
sibling, was present Saturday
along with his wife Jean.
They were accompanied by
family members now living in
Georgia.
Other family members hailing
from North Carolina, Kentucky,
Illinois, Georgia and Florida
represented the late Joyce
(Hendry) and Robert J.
Boatwright. Family members from
Florida represented the late
Charles and Mae Dell (O'Steen)
Hendry.
Janette Howell Hendry, the
surviving spouse of Norman C.
Hendry, was also in attendance,
accompanied by family from
Alabama, Virginia and Florida.
Those gathered for occasion
spent the day "enjoying
fellowship, food, fun and
reviewing the cookbook's many
short stories, old photos and
unique recipes."
Each sibling was recognized in


the cookbook with a dedication
page and each spouse was honored
with a tribute page.
"The book will serve as a
keepsake for future generations,


honoring our loved ones and
providing a glimpse o4 the rich
heritage we share," family
representatives said.
All copies of the cookbook have


been distributed among the family;
anyone wishing to take a closer
look at the cookbook may
contact any member of the Hendry
family.


1^1..---
Alton and Callie Scott as a young
married couple in 1913


The following are a few of the
more colorful recipes featured in
the "Hendry' Home Cooking &
Heritage" cookbook:

Fenholloway French
Fried Onion Rings
(Mae Dell's Recipe)
Subminted by Mildred Hcndry Fike
3 large onions, sliced
salad oil
1/2 c. milk
1 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
Heat oil in frying pan. In dipping
dish, place milk. In small bowl stir
flour and salt until mixed. Dip
rings in milk then flour then repeat
so each is coated. Twice fry in oil


for about three minutes or until
slightly brown. Drain on paper
towels.
Note: This was a recipe my
grandma gave me and I treasure it
since I have it in her handwriting
on an old
yellowed sheet of composition
paper. These are yummy
when you want to break your diet.

Daddy's Steinhatchee River
Quick-Fix Lunch
iubmined by Jo Ann GInscoe
Sardines (1 can per person)
Oysters (as many as you want)
2 cans potted meat
2 cans Vienna sausage
1 bottle ketchup


1 bottle Tabasco sauce
1 box saltines
Several shucking knives and
chisels
Fish for several hours. When
boat occupants begin to feel
lunchy, pull up to the nearest
oyster bar and drop anchor. Break
out the saltines, ketchup and
Tabascq.
Chip oyster from the bar with
chisel, shuck it, place on a saltine,
top with ketchup and a few drops
of Tabasco; down the hatch.
Repeat as many times as desired.
Toss the sardines, potted meat
and Vienna sausage to those who
can't handle the raw oysters.
How simple can it be?


Note: My husband, James
Glascoe, was one that got tossed
the canned goods. When Daddy
said "You boys ready for lunch?"
James started looking around the
boat. He didn't remember hearing
anyone mention anything about
packing lunch. He was literally
aghast; obviously his first
experience at the freshest of raw
oysters. daddy loved introducing
people to new experiences.

"Sweet as Pat" Cornbread
(When you meet Pat,
you'll understand)
Submitted by Ken Hendry
1 c. all purpose flour
1 c. yellow corn meal mix


1 tsp. sugar
1 T. baking power
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs
8 oz. heaving whipping cream
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1/4 c. honey
Mix all ingredient, pour into a 9-
inch baking pan. Bake at 350
degrees for 30 minutes or until a
toothpick inserted into the center
comes out clean.
Note: This recipe calls for using
a toothpick to test for doneness,
but as a child I remember Mama
pulling a straw out of the broom
that stood behind the kitchen door
to use as a "doneness tester." How
did we ever survive?

The Byd Report: explains vote on
The y Repor. bailout measure

****************** *******


On September 18, after months
of emphasizing the strength of our
economy, President Bush did an
about-face and asked Congress for
a $700 billion blank check to bail
out Wall Street and put a stop to
the impending financial crisis. I
believe that the President's request
for Congressional action is a:direct
result of years of his
administration's irresponsible
fiscal and monetary policies that
have now come to a head.
In addition to reckless borrow-
and-spend fiscal policies over the
last eight years, this administration
steered an unwise monetary policy
that artificially propped up the
financial markets through low
interest rates and a lack of
regulation. At the same time,
many homeowners held the false
assumption that home equity
would continue to rise at
unprecedented, historic rates.
The intersection of these two bad
acts is where we find ourselves
today.
Members of Congress from both
parties, including myself, flatly
rejected the President's bailout
proposal. However, many of us
recognized that the credit crunch is
hitting all sectors of our economy,
including the people and
businesses in North Florida, and
swift but careful, thoughtful action
was needed on a more responsible
financial rescue package that better
protected the taxpayers.
During discussions about a
financial rescue plan, I met with
many economic experts from all
different schools of thought and
ideologies about the consequences
of action versus inaction. These
experts all agreed that the
consequences of inaction would be
devastating: local banks would no
longer be able to provide home,
, Or, or student loans to people with
good credit or to small businesses,
and personal retirement accounts
would become seriously
vulnerable.


We depend on banks and
financial institutions to protect our
life savings, expand our
businesses, finance major family
purchases, and send our children to
college. I realize that spending
hard-earned tax dollars to stabilize
the banking industry, an industry in
which we are all financially linked,
is not popular. However, I believe
the alternative, which was to do
nothing, could lead to a scenario
reminiscent of the Great
Depression, and this is a situation
in which I believe Congress had no
choice but to act.


Allen Boyd
With all of the party leaders and
the administration at the table,
Congress completely overhauled
the President's initial request and
crafted a bipartisan bill that
included strong taxpayer
protections and increased
oversight. The legislation is
designed to allow the federal
government to turn a profit on the
assets it acquires and sells. Thanks
to the Blue Dog Democrats, any
assets that the plan fails to recoup
will be repaid to the taxpayers in
full by the financial industry.
I supported their' first bill that
came before the House of
Representatives because I firmly
believe that a responsible injection
of funds into the market is


necessary to protect our homes,
our businesses, our healthcare
coverage, our pensions, and our
hard-earned tax dollars. Despite
having bipartisan support and
being crafted by leaders in both
parties, this bill failed in the House
by a very close vote.
Instead of working to make a
better bill, the Senate added $152
billion in tax relief to the rescue
plan, of which $110 billion was not
paid for and must be borrowed.
Not paying for our priorities is a
large part of what got us in this
financial mess in the first place.
This bill deserved to be considered
on its own merit and should not
have been loaded down with other
priorities that only compounded
our financial problems.
While I was extremely
displeased with the Senate's fiscal
irresponsibility, I voted for the
second financial rescue package
because our financial and
economic outlook had not
changed, and I believe that action
was necessary to avert a financial
crisis and in the best interest of the
people of North Florida. My
concerns lie not with Wall Street,
but with the people, businesses,
and local governments in North
Florida and around the country that
depend on loans and lines of credit
from banks.
It is no secret that we have
serious challenges before us as a
nation, and the financial rescue bill
only treats the symptoms of years
of reckless fiscal and monetary
policies by this administration
coupled with a lack of oversight by
Congress. We must also fix our
underlying fiscal and monetary
problems. Our short term and long
term fiscal and monetary problems
demand immediate, bipartisan
attention from our next President
and the next Congress. As.always,
I remain committed to tackling
these serious challenges, for the
strength and well being of our
great nation.


Letters to the Editor


Injured pedestrian appreciates


response of good Samaritans


Dear Editor:
On Oct. 1, I lost my balance and
fell on Quincy Street by the City
Park. My head was bleeding badly
and my elbow was broken.
Within seconds several people


came to my aid, one offering
good first-aid advice, one
offering to call an ambulance, then
a friend with a towel to put under
my head.
Their response was so gratifying
