State blocks Vision


2060 over coastal


settlement concerns


--Florida state officials have
declared Taylor County's Vision
2060--a community-led effort to
development a "blueprint" for the
next 50 years--not in compliance
with local and state law due to
its description of "coastal
settlements."
The Vision 2060 project was
spearheaded by the Perry-Taylor
County Chamber of Commerce,
which was assisted throughout the
process by Orlando-based
planning firm MSCW.


,f,. o .

,., ,. ,,=


~.

After more than a year of public
meetings and workshops, the final
product included a projected map
of future development in the
county, a series of community
types designed to concentrate
development in desired areas and a
list of economic development
benchmarks.


The vision was approved by the
county commission as an
amendment to its comprehensive
plan and was sent to the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs, which returned it with a
list of issues, namely with the
described coastal settlements,
which are within the coastal high
hazard area (CHHA) of the county.
The county then made some
changes to the plan and sent it back
to the state for final approval.
On Monday, Mike McDaniel,
with DCA's Office of
Comprehensive Planning, sent a
letter to county officials alerting
them that his agency was going to
file a notice of intent to find the
plan "not in compliance" with the
county's comprehensive plan.
At the heart of the issue is future
development in land in the CHHA
designated mixed-use urban
development.
The county and DCA signed a
stipulated settlement agreement
this past summer after years of
disagreement over the allowable
development densities in such
lands.
Working with DCA, county staff
and MSCW developed new
language to add to the vision plan's
section on "coastal settlement"
areas, which include pre-existing
communities such as Dekle Beach,
Keaton Beach and Steinhatchee.

Domino's Pizza robbed;



suspect remains at-large


Employees at Domino's Pizza
were robbed at gunpoint as they
closed the store shortly after I a.m.
Saturday.
The suspect--who remains at
large--escaped with an undisclosed
amount of cash.
Taylor County Sheriffs Office
Deputy Bryan Hayden and Florida
Highway Patrol Trooper Brian
Lundy were the first law
enforcement officers to arrive on
scene.


After making contact with the
employees, the officers then
dispatched a description of the
suspect: a black male,
approximately 6' tall, medium
build, wearing a black "hoodie"
sweatshirt, black sweatpants and a
black ski mask.
During an interview with Perry
Police Department (PPD) Sgt. Lin
Gray, one of the employees stated
that the suspect entered the
building through the (unlocked)


back door.
She further said that the suspect
stuck a gun in her face and told her
to "shut up."
The suspect then grabbed the
cash and left through the same
unlocked back door.
No one was injured during the
incident.
Anyone with information is
asked to contact PPD Det. Dwight
Norris at 584-5121. Callers may
remain anonymous.


The Perry City Council has
cemented its intentions to improve
the appearance of the U.S. 19
corridor by enacting a new
ordinance which outlines a series
of requirements for property
owners along the route.
The requirements will apply
from "city limit to .city limit" on


U.S. 19 and concern only those
properties bordering the highway.
As a courtesy to landowners
who will be impacted by the
ordinance, the city is sending out a
letter detailing the maintenance
criteria contained within the new
ordinance.
The objective of the ordinance is


to "have building exteriors and
property maintained in a way
which improves the overall
impression of the corridor and our
city. The goal is to have this entire
corridor, from city limit to city
limit, an area that each property

I've felt like I've gained some
friends."

re-organizational meeting Tuesday
morning.

chairman and vice chair, the board

appointments. A final decision is

Fillin a need


Local children without access to
dental care now have a new avenue
through the Taylor County Health
Department's recently opened
dental clinic.
Now in its fourth week of
operation, the clinic is primarily
geared toward pediatrics,
specifically Medicaid children,
according to TCHD Administrator
Stephen Tullos.
Tullos said he decided to move
forward with the clinic after
looking statistics on children
receiving dental care in the county.
"Less than 20 percent of
Medicaid children saw a dentist
and most who did had to go out of
the county," he said.
From the initial idea, however, it
took five years to get the clinic up
and running.
First the health department


conducted a needs assessment, and
then pursued and received a grant
from the Florida Department of
Health to buy the necessary
equipment.
Then began the search for a
dentist, which ended with the
recruitment of Dr. Stephanie
Woods, who came to Taylor
County from the American
midwest. Kansas to be exact.
"I've been practicing for eight
years, primarily with children and
special needs adults and children."
Woods said.
Woods has two full-time
assistants--Kara Dean and Annette
O'Steen--along with front desk
assistant Christy Hendry.
In order to facilitate bringing
their patients to the services.
Tullos and Woods have worked out
a deal with the Taylor County


School District to bus students
from the schools during prescribed-
times each week.
Informational packets were
delivered to parents, describing the
new clinic and encouraging
parents to participate.
"We had a huge response,"
Woods said.
In the first week alone, the clinic
saw 80 children, a number that
grew to more than 300 in three
weeks.
"I was able to tell only a very
few of them to 'come back in six
months'," she said.
Woods added that the problems
were found in students of all ages,
hbut she wasn't sure if the high
number was indicative of all
Medicaid children in the county or

COUNTY COMMISSION
Continued from page 1
unanimously to retain its
employees, namely County
Administrator Jack Brown and
County Attorney Conrad Bishop.
The board approved its calendar
for the next year, keeping the
meeting times (the first Monday
and third Tuesday of each month at
6 p.m.) the same.
One change to the schedule,
however, is that all regular board
meetings will be now be held at the
Courthouse Annex on Green
Street. For the past several years,
the commission has met twice each
in Steinhatchee, Shady Grove
and at the Jerkins Community
Center.
Commissioners said the change
was because of the lack of
adequate projection equipment at


the other locations as well as that
staff had better access to
information and documents that
might be needed during a meeting.
The board did leave open the
possibility of holding workshops
in various districts throughout the


year.
The commission will hold a
orientation workshop on
Wednesday, Dec. 3, from 9 a.m. to
2 p.m. The board is also expected
to discuss priorities for the new
year.

County staff to meet with DCA


VISION 2060
Continued from page 1
The proposed language stated
"only those parcels" that are
designated urban development
areas on the effective date of the
settlement agreement would be 12
units per acre (if served by
community or public water and
sanitary sewer systems). All other
development would be limited to
one unit per acre when clustered
with an overall gross density of
one unit per five acres.
Commissioners called this
language too restrictive, and
questioned why the plan should
include such specific mentions of
density when the other proposed
land use areas do not.
County Administrator Jack
Brown li amended
language w ic eliminated the
phrase "only those parcels" as well
as any mention of density
restrictions for those parcels not
covered by the stipulated
settlement agreement.
Brown pointed out that DCA
will be able to review any future
comprehensive plan amendments
to convert new parcels to mixed-
use urban" development and
consider the issues at that time.
.- ,


The commission unanimously
approved the amended language.
Brown conceded at that time that
DCA may find the plan not in
compliance because of the
changes.
With Monday's letter, McDaniel
confirmed DCA was doing just
that.
"While the department
commends the county on the
extensive public participation and
effort that went into' the Vision
2060 plan, the department remains
concerned with the suitability of
the 'coastal settlements' described
in the coastal district," McDaniel
said.
"There are other aspects of the
vision that the. department fully
encourages and supports.
However, given the unified nature
of the vision, the department
cannot separate the coastal
development aspect from the
vision itself, and thus at this
time, the package cannot move
forward.
"We are interested in meeting
with you and your staff at your
convenience for the purpose of
developing an acceptable solution


r


S al


to the 'not in compliance' finding.
As stated above, the 'coastal
settlements' including with the
Vision 2060 plan represent a
significant increase in
development potential in an
unsuitable area. Directing growth
away from areas subject to
hurricane surge inundation can
save lives and reduce property
damage." he continued.
"Currently the potential loss of
life and property damage due to
hurricanes in Taylor County is
minimized due to the small
population and large coastal land
holdings in public ownership. The
significant increase in
development potential within the
coastal high hazard area
contemplated by the Vision 2060
plan could lead to detrimental
-.a.ecologicl. i econ6hic t hd 46cial
impacts. The department remains
committed with working with the
county and on addressing this
issue."
In its statement of intent to find
the plan not in compliance, DCA
lists 11 areas where it contends the
vision is not consistent with the
county's comprehensive plan, as

well as six instances in the state's
comprehensive plan.
According to county officials,
the next step will be to sit down
with DCA staff and try to work out
the issues in a stipulated
agreement. Should no accord be
reached, the county and DCA will
go to an administrative hearing
where a state law judge will decide
the issue.

of Excellence for its work on the

Bulldogs fall in rain-soaked loss 42-6

BY AARON PORTWOOD plagued blow-out loss, those collapse on the rain, which began
A steady rain began falling late raindrops helped mask the tears to fall during Union County's final

County's 42-6 Homecoming loss the nine Bulldog seniors who an easy six-yard TD run by i


to the Union County Tigers Friday


night in Dorsett Stadium.
After the final seconds ticked off
the clock, bringing an end to an
ugly penalty-riddled and fumble-


removed their shoulder pads and


TCHS jerseys for the final time.
Unfortunately, the Bulldogs
can't blame their lackluster
performance or second half


Union's back-up tailback Bryan
Holmes.
Instead the culprit was the same
miscues and self-inflicted wounds
(numerous penalties, missed
tackles, six fumbles and an
interception) that have plagued the
Bulldogs throughout the season.
As a result, the Bulldogs
finished with a 3-7 overall record
and failed to make the playoffs for
the third straight season. The
Bulldogs last qualified for
postseason play in 2005 Head
Coach Price Harris' first season -
when Taylor County finished with
a 4-6 record and lost in the first
round.
It was the final high school game
for talented senior Bryckoski
Jackson, who finished with 12
carries for 50 yards and was the
only Bulldog with positive yardage
in the game. Taylor County
finished with just 3 yards rushing
on 36 carries and only 60 total
offensive yards in a game that was
dominated at the line of scrimmage
by Union County.
Senior QB Quentin Tucker
scored the Bulldogs' lone
touchdown on a one-yard plunge in
the first quarter, but finished with
12 rushes for minus 21 yards due
to fumbles and sacks. Tucker
completed 4 of 13 passes for 57
yards and an interception.
Sensational sophomore tailback
Tony Jackson was swarmed on in
the backfield all night and could
never break free, finishing with
minus 24 yards on 11 carries.
Senior runningback/receiver and
Homecoming King Jarquis Ellis
had one carry for negative 2 yards
and caught a pass for a 1-yard gain.
Senior speedster Lavaski
Williams only touched the ball


twice, catching two passes for 42
yards. Sophomore James Houston
continued his late-season surge
Reggie King (2) breaks outside during action Friday night with a 14-yard reception.

Lady Bulldogs end first two


weeks of the season at 3-1


Kicking off the second week of
the season, the TCHS Lady
Bulldogs soccer team (3-1) played
district foe Hamilton County and a
strong Tallahassee Maclay
Marauders team.
On Tuesday night TCHS took on
Hamilton County here in Perry. It
took only 9 minutes for sensational
freshman Macy Gregory to score
her first of four goals on the night.
Gregory scored on a beautiful
cross from fellow freshman Ashley
Mixon. A few minutes later she
scored again off a.well placed pass


from sophomore Savannah
Cantrell. The last goal of the first
half came off a pass back from the
end line to a streaking Gregory in
front of the goal from junior
Jordan Williams.
"We are really starting to play as
a team. The girls are looking for
each other and playing quicker
balls through the defense to create
scoring opportunities," said Coach
Dara Nix. "It's rewarding watching
them execute on the field the
things we've been working on."

picked up where she left off in the
1st half scoring her fourth goal of
the night off a loose ball that she
gathered up and took it to goal.
Then it was time for others to get
into the scoring act when
sophomore Katie Holden finished
on a nice cross from Williams. The
final goal of the game came off a
missed header by Brooke Barton
that her sister Hayden Barton
pushed into the back of the net.
Hamilton County struggled to
get the ball down in the Taylor
County 'third of the field. Taylor's
defense proved to be too much.
The Lady 'Dogs defense posted
their 3rd shutout of the young
season.
That defense is led by Sweeper
Brooke Barton, Keeper Korie
Wilson and defensive backs
Elizabeth Devane, Courtney
Brown, Kelsea Smyrnios and
Sarah Meecham.
We always recognize the
offensive players for their
contributions, which they deserve,
but the defensive players
sometimes get overlooked for their
great effort," said Nix.
The Bulldogs ended up beating
Hamilton County 6-0 to win their
first district game of the season.
Thursday proved to be a real
challenge with 3-1 Maclay coming
in to square off against the 3-0
Bulldogs.
"Maclay was coming off a big
win earlier in the week against 5A
Lincoln, so I knew we had our
work cut out for us," said Nix.
Maclay got off to a good start
scoring a quick goal on the Taylor
defense that was trying to adjust to
the Marauders attack. After that the
game settled down into a defensive
struggle. Both teams got some
limited looks at the goal but came
up short of putting one in. The
game ended 1-0 in favor of
Maclay.
The Taylor girls play two big
district games this week on
Tuesday at Florida High and on
Thursday against Madison in
Perry.

the first half, but a dismal second-
half performance saw the Bulldogs
rush for minus 35 yards on 15
carries and manage just one
completion for a 14-yard gain to
finish with 3 yards rushing and 57

Meanwhile, the Tigers (who
finished 7-3) rushed 42 times for
234 yards and 5 TDs. Union also
completed 6 of 11 passes for 86
yards to tally an impressive 320-60
advantage in offensive production.
The Bulldogs managed 9 first
downs, with only two coming in
the second half and both were by
virtue of Union County penalties.
Union County had 17 first downs,

penalized in a game that featured
several offsetting personal
foul/unsportsmanlike conduct
penalties. Taylor finished with 11
penalties for 105 yards, while
Union was flagged 13 times for
135 yards.
The Bulldogs fumbled 6 times
and lost 2, while throwing an
interception that was returned 42
yards for a touchdown. Union had
five fumbles but only turned the
ball over once.
The Bulldogs picked up a first
down on the opening drive of the
game, thanks to an 11-yard run by
B. Jackson, but was forced to punt
after a false start penalty and a 7-
yard sack.


Union took over on their own 34
and drove 66 yards aided by
back-to-back offsides penalties on
the Bulldogs to score on a 3-yard
run and take a 7-0 lead with 4:58
left in the first quarter.
The Bulldogs were hit with a 10-
yard holding penalty and a
personal foul penalty on their next
drive, but Tucker picked up a big
first down on a QB keeper before
fumbling a handoff and losing the
ball two plays later.

drive that lasted well into the
second quarter.
T. Jackson picked up a yard from
his own 18 and Williams caught a
pass from Tucker for a 14-yard
gain before B. Jackson ripped off
gains of 12 and 5 yards on back-to-
back carries.
A 15-yard personal foul penalty
against the Tigers helped move the
ball across midfield and Tucker
made a perfect throw on a fade
pass to Williams, who made an
outstanding grab for a 28-yard gain
to the Tiger 7-yard line.
B. Jackson bulled his way to the
I and Tucker scored on the next
play to pull Taylor within 7-6.
The Bulldogs went for the two-
point conversion and Tucker threw
incomplete as he scrambled under
heavy pressure all the way back to
his own 35 yard line.
It was all Union County the rest
of the way, as the Tiger rained on

Editorial


Parent u


gun at TI
Dear Editor:
On Nov. 14, while at the high
school waiting for my child who
was attending the Homecoming
Dance after the game, an
individual was observed walking
across the parking lot to enter the
dance with a group of other people
when he stopped and pulled a
handgun out of the waist of his
pants and gave it to another person
and told him to go put it back in his
vehicle which was parked in the
high school parking lot.
A deputy was advised of what
the person observed and the people
that were in possession of the
firearm and the vehicle that it was
located in. When the deputy came
in contact with the people that were
involved with the firearm, he
bumped knuckles with them and
told them that they needed to leave,
without searching their vehicle.
After I observed them leaving, I
asked the deputy, the dean and the
principal why the vehicle was not
searched and the deputy told us
that he did not have probable
cause. I am not a cop or a sheriffs
deputy but I have been to the
school enough to know that at
every entrance at every school
there is a sign that reads that "any
subject and or vehicle is subject to
search while on premises."

pset after seeing a


CHS during dance


So my question is to the sheriff
and the newly elected school
superintendent and school board
members: what has to happen for
something to be done about the
problem we are having with our
youth in this community?
I have read in the newspaper
many times where Sheriff
Williams has asked for people in
the community to let his deputies
know when a crime or a problem
takes place, and he wonders why
people will not tell when these
things happen. This is a very good
reason why people keep their
mouths shut. Because, of this
deputy and school officials not
doing anything, a bunch of kids
were put in danger because they're
were not many parents out there
that could of seen the gun or even
know what was going on in the
parking lot.
What is it going to take? What if
the individual made it into the
dance and opened fire in the gym?
Have we not had enough young
people die because of guns and
violence in our community alone
that we don't need to add to the
number? Sheriff Williams if your
deputies are not going to do their
jobs, let them go and find some
that will do their job and follow the
oath that they were sworn to do: to


protect and serve the people of this
community.
I have a lot of questions for the
new superintendent. First, this
incident showed me that your
administrators perform very poorly
under pressure; at no time was
more law enforcement asked for.
The only reason anymore officers
arrived was because parents called
them. The whole dance, your staff
was in the parking lot, not inside
monitoring the children.
So, I repeat, what is it going to
take for a serious change to
happen? In the past depending on
who you were or in the close past
how important the football coach
or staff thinks you are to the
football team determined how or
what punishment they would get.
Last year kids were refused the
right to walk for a practical joke
but a child can assault a teacher
and he only gets suspended for one
game? I think there is a problem
here. The administrators and staff
and school board and yourself are
telling our kids it is okay to fight
whenever you want, just don't do
any jokes. Don't get me wrong, I
know what was done last year was
wrong. If these questions ever get
answered, I will have more.
Because of Safety I Wish
to Remain Nameless

Vetera s honored during ceremony


Dear Editor:
For the family of the late Ruel
Rowell, a World War II veteran, it
was a proud and special day that
dawned this Veterans Day, Nov.
11, 2008, when his U.S. flag was
hoisted to fly at Veterans Memorial
Park in honor of all veterans.
It was a very solemn and
impressive ceremony, conducted
by (Pg Q1. David Ammons and
menit ef Taylor County High
School JROTC. Before raising my
brother's flag, the cadets first
lowered the Florida State flag, the
MIA/POW flag and, lastly, the late
Declan O'Grady's U.S. flag. Worn
and tattered after serving its time,
the flag was folded and returned
with honor and pride to his family.-
My brother was proud, as are all
veterans and Taylor County
citizens when taking visitors,
especially out-of-town guests, to
visit this beautiful park. It is there
as a reminder for all generations
and those to come to never forget
our veterans.
We extended special thanks to
all who initiated this project, as


rTaco


well as the man my husband wrote
about in the following article for
the Perry News-Herald. Finally,
after more than 40 years, it was Mr.
Warren Martin who initiated
establishing a Disabled American
Veterans (DAV) Chapter organized
here to help the veterans.
May we always honor those who
kept and are now keeping our
nation strong!
A Few Words for DAV
(written by Dean S. Odom)
After a lot of hard work by some
few dedicated members of the
Disabled American Veterans
(DAV), looks as if Taylor County's
disabled veterans will soon have
their own local DAV Chapter in
affiliation with the national
organization of the DAV.
With this in mind, a few words
profiling the organization, along
with a representative member,
would appear to be appropriate. An
in-depth analysis it is not, because
a profile is by definition a short
sketch or outline presenting the
most striking characteristics of an
organization or personality.

It's all conjecture of course, but I
would like to think that back in


Midweek Muddle


1932, founders of the DAV had in
mind the words of English poet
John Donne (1573-1631) who
observed in his writing that "No Loaves and fishes;
man is an island, entire of itself;,
every man is a piece of the pound cakes and tomatoes

VETERANS
Continued from page 2
worsened and made somewhat less
thereby. Now this is not intended
to be an excursion into a
discussion of truth contained in
poetic philosophy, but Donne
seems to have touched upon a
fundamental truth that operates in
concerned and caring societies--
when one in the society hurts, all
feel the pain.
The DAV cares. It cares about its
members individually and
collectively, and it seeks to
promote their welfare so that each
member may again become--
insofar as disability allows--
contributing members of our
society.
Of course we should never
forget our honored dead veterans
who have made the ultimate
sacrifice and can give no more, but
the thrust of this profile is toward
the living veterans whose
infirmities are living testimonies of
contributions made to society by
all categories of veterans--the able
and disabled, the quick and the
dead.
In practical terms the DAV is a
non-profit organization that


represents the collective views of
disabled veterans before various
governmental bodies; at the
individual level, the organization
helps the veteran find his way
through a bewildering maze of
laws. rules and regulations
affecting the entire veteran
population.
It is in essence aservice-oriented
organization dedicated to the
welfare of the disabled American
veteran.
Any profile of the DAV would
be incomplete without considering
a profile or short biographical
sketch of a representative member.
Warren Martin, who came to
Taylor County in 1982, is such a
member. His early work provided
the spark needed for start-tip of the
local DAV chapter.
Born in 1915, a few miles north
of Detroit. Mich., Martin was
serving in an artillery unit of the
Michigan National Guard when it
was mobilized in 19,39 to serve as
the 943rd artillery' battalion of
General George Patton's famed 3rd
Army. Patton's army landed in
France two weeks after the D-Day
invasion, (June 1944) and chased
the Germans across France to the
Rhine River at such a rapid pace


that he often had to halt to allow
supplies (such as gas and
ammunition) time to catch up.
Martin, a powder man
responsible for ramming 40-pound
powder bags into the breech of his
155 mm gun, elatess that.the action
could be at times best described as
furious. On his last day as powder
man in the 943rd battalion, his gun
had fired continuously for 500
rounds and was several degrees
warmer than red-hot--and that's hot
enough to give severely disabling
burns to both hands for that's what
happened when Martin rammed
powder charge No. 155.
After spending several weeks in
Army field hospitals, he finished
out the war !in Europe with an
artillery observation unit and was
then honorably discharged in 1945,
with six years! of active service.
Warren Martin and millions of
other men and women gave some
of the most productive years of
their young lives to their country.
The pay was lpw and the work was
dangerous. but they got the job
done and came home to become
solid citizens., No country can ask
more.
Sincerely,
Lois Rowell Odom,


Honor roll challenge
The Taylor Learning Center recently announced its honor roll list for the first nine week
grading period. Shown above, having earned all A's and/or B's, are: (from I to r) George Gant,
Jeffery Touchton, Hilarie Walford, Sierra Walford, Jamie Boyington and Katie Boyington.
"The students are working hard and are improving," Principal Tolar Griffin said. "The student
body fell just six students short of reaching the principal's challenge." Griffin has an ongoing
challenge with the student body. If 70 percent or more of the students earn a 2.0 grade point
average or higher, he will have his head shaved at an academic pep. rally for those students.
During the first nine weeks, 22 students earned a 2.0 grade point average or higher. These
students will be rewarded with a pizza party at the school.
