Against DMH


Settlement near


in Khodr lawsuit

Lawyers representing Doctors' Memorial Hospital (DMH) and Dr. Bilal
Khodr, who is suing the facility for breach of contract, worked through
most of the day Tuesday in an attempt to hammer out a settlement.
A hearing scheduled for Tuesday afternoon to hear arguments about a
temporary injunction against DMH and Dr. Ronald Emerick, also named
in the suit, was continued after requests from both attorneys.
David C. Willis, representing Khodr, and Bruce Culpepper, representing
DMH, said they were close to an agreement.
Judge Frederick L. Koberlein of Dixie County is presiding over the
case. Circuit Judge James Roy Bean and County Judge Stephen Murphy
both recused themselves from the case.
Speaking to the Taco Times, Willis and Culpepper said they were "not
quite finished yet" but were working together on an amicable solution.
"Some points have been worked out, but others still need some more
study," they said.

Despite $1 million deficit



District 'on task'



to meet budget

The Taylor County School District is keeping a close eye on its finances
as it tries to climb out of a more than $1 million deficit in the general fund.
District Finance Director Vickie McManus presented updated numbers
for the current fiscal year (through the end of October) during the school
board's meeting last week.
According to McManus, the district is on task so far to meet its budget.
During the period from July to October, the district received $5.3
million in revenue versus $5.9 million in expenses. A delay in the county's
property tax bills, however, pushed back those expected incoming
revenues. The district hopes to receive those funds by late December and
into January.
Projecting into the future, McManus said the district had up to $12.7
million in expenses already committed or encumbered, the vast majority
of which is payroll.
That brings the total expenditures to $18.7 million out of a budgeted
$22.4 million, with $3.6 million remaining for ongoing expenses such as
utilities and fuel.
McManus also gave estimates for those ongoing costs for the remainder
of the year as: utilities, $1,153,200; diesel, $345,000; property and
causality insurance, $950,000; telephone/postage/internet, $123,000;
water/sewer/garbage, $116,000; equipment leases, $110,000; professional
services, $490,000; substitutes, $100,000; school resource
officers/crossing guards, $232,000; and travel, $64,438.
On the savings side, the district is expending a one time $45,000 refund
for federal excise taxes on diesel from which the district is exempt but had
been paying.
Additional DOE cuts of $202,000 are also included in the summary.
McManus added that she had not updated her estimates for fuel and
utilities since October. While fuel prices have fallen sharply in that time,
utility costs are expected to increase.


In October

Unemployment rate jumps to


Taylor County's unemployment
jumped again in October to 7.5
percent, after falling in September.

Both sides hope to settle- in January


LAWSUIT
Continued from page 1
DMH Board Member Cline
Moore spoke to the judge during
the hearing, adding that the parties
hope to reconvene in January to
settle the case.
"The board's position, as always,
is to promote the best possible
healthcare for the community,"
Moore told the Taco Times after
the hearing.
Khodr filed his suit in circuit
court on Oct. 10.
In the suit, Khodr alleges that
when he resigned from the hospital
on July 1, DMH breached his
employment agreement and a
separation agreement by
continuing to employ Emerick and
operate DMH Pediatric.
The suit states DMH, Khodr and
Emerick signed a separation


agreement in which the parties
agreed that in the event Khodr
terminated his employment with
the hospital and purchased his
clinic, Emerick's employment with
DMH would be immediately
terminated. DMH would not re-
hire Emerick for a period of two
years and Emerick would be able
to negotiate a employment contract
with Khodr, the lawsuit further
alleged.
The agreement also stated that
Emerick would not coinpete within
50 miles of Khodr's clinic for a
period of two years.
A copy of the separation
agreement was included in
Khodr's suit, dated 2006,
which is signed by Khodr, Emerick
and then DMH CEO Rick
Brown.
According to the suit, Khodr had
the right to purchase his pediatric


clinic from DMH pursuant to his
employment agreement.
"In the event Dr. Khodr
purchased the pediatric clinic,
DMH agreed not to compete with
Dr. Khodr," the suits states.
In 2007, DMH established a
separate pediatric clinic operated
by Emerick. Dr. Khodr terminated
his employment on.July 1.
"Since July 1, 2008, Dr. Emerick
had failed and refused to terminate
his employment with DMH and
continues to practice at DMH
Pediatric in breach of the
separation agreement," the suit
states.
As part of the suit, Khodr
requested a temporary injunction
enjoining DMH and Emerick
from any further activity in
violation of the agreements, which
was to have been the subject of
Tuesday's hearing.

of 9,361,000. The unemployment
rate was 0.4 percent higher than in
September and up 2.7 percent over
the rate reported in October 2007.
Florida's October

October was -1.9 percent,
representing a loss of 156,200 jobs


Deficit must be cleared


during '08-09 fiscal year

DISTRICT BUDGET
Continued from page 1

Should the estimate hold out, the district would be within $40,000 of
meeting its budget.
The school district has been facing significant financial woes since its
2006-07 audit, which was presented to the board in March, reported a
more than $1 million general fund deficit. That report showed that coupled
with the deficit were additional questioned costs from both the 2005-06
and 2006-07 school years, and $1.6 million in reduced state funding for
the 2008-09 year, bringing that total up to $3.8 million.
The district originally planned to make up the deficit over a three-year
period but the state mandated that it must be done during the current fiscal
year. The district eliminated some 50 positions over the summer and cuti
hack numerous others, McManus said.


from September 2007. This
continued the trend of negative
over-the-year growth that began in
September 2007, primarily due to
declines in construction, according
to AWl.
"The Agency for Workforce
Innovation and our partners
throughout the workforce system
are reinforcing our efforts to
provide a wide array of programs
and specialized assistance to help
job seekers gain meaningful
employment," said AWI Director
Monesia T. Brown.
"One of the many valuable
resources available is the Employ
Florida Marketplace Web site,
which provides a powerful online
job-matching tool for both job
seekers and employers."
Of Taylor County's neighbors,
Madison County had the highest
unemployment rate with 8.4
percent, followed by Dixie County
at 7.8 percent, Jefferson County at
5.5 and Lafayette County at 5.0
percent.
All of the counties saw an
increase in their unemployment
rates in October, except for
Lafayette County, which had a 0.1
percent decrease.

There's Bad News and Good News #2

The last time I shared with you was in September just after I watched all the television
coverage of the anniversary of the bombing of the World Trade Center. At that time I
stated that in my opinion, that day was a major turning point in the history of, not only
our nation, but in the history of the world.
A great deal has happened here in the United States and around the world since my
last writing. Things that only re-enforce my convictions that the world as we have known
it is in the throes of a tremendous change that will continue for quite some time.
The presidential election has certainly established a new mile stone in the history
of our country political world. We have a president-elect who claims "Change" as his
motto. I do believe it to be appropriate, want it or not.
Some of the worst news is that mismanagement and greed have destroyed the
integrity of our largest banking and financial institutions. The auto giants of Detroit,
after years of losing money with unpopular products, and being parasitized by the
unions have folded.
Our country, which has attempted to demonstrate for the rest of the world for years
that capitalism is the most efficient economic system. haf let a, group.of greedy, selfish,,
individuals destroy the lives of thousands of people, not only here but around the
world. Well, enough of that. I believe that all the bad news is really good news if you
can sit back and view things from a higher perspective.
Millions of people who have been complacent about their lives; just shuffling along
with the crowd, are now being forced to open their eyes, and consider what new
directions they're going to take.
I hope that they all make good choices.
One of the worst things that can happen to us is that the population will let fear
dictate its' plan of action.
Fear promotes feelings of anger, resentment, and bitterness; the very negative
emotions that play into the hands of the destructive forces at work in the world. There
are individuals in the middle east and around the world who are rubbing their hands in
glee as they contemplate our nations current dilemmas.
Now is the time for all of us to take stock of our situation, and establish a direction
based on hope, confidence, and faith that all wrongs will be righted.
I always liked the saying to the effect that "to the caterpillar what is the end of the
world, is to the butterfly the beginning of a life of beauty and freedom."
I wish there was some way to let all the caterpillars know that the end of their world is
just an illusion; that they will, in reality continue on as the spirit of the lovely butterfly.
I wish that I could convey the message to all the frightened people of the world that
the confusion and turmoil that they are witnessing now is but a necessary aspect of
this transition period. A necessary period of change that will, before too long, usher in
an era of peace, beauty and wonderful opportunities to live their lives as they've only
dreamed. This is the time for putting behind us any sense of limitation. Discard old
belief patterns that would make you any less than the beautiful being that you have the
right to be. Rise above destructive habits of thinking and living. Put all pettiness behind
and prepare to be the best person you can be.
Our "Elder Brother," the great Exemplar, once said, "I have overcome the world."
Now he had no quarrel with Mother Earth. He was only referring to his own human-
ness. The world is a beautiful place. It is filled with distractions, things that tempt us to
linger beside the path when we know we should be on our way.
We are here on earth to gain in wisdom and self-knowledge, and it is perfectly right
that we should have a broad range of experiences and sample Mother Earths offerings.
However, It is easy to get so attached to some of the things that we like best that they
rob us of our freedom.
Our goal is to taste and say, "Thank you, Mother Earth," but always reserve the right
to say, "No more, Thanks."
In my last writing I shared something that I feel the need to repeat for the benefit of
those who didn't read it before.
"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."
Now is a wonderful time for all of us to take inventory of our lives. What is worth
doing and what is not. What is worth striving for, acquiring, and what is not. Picture
your future as beautiful as you can dream and know that it can be yours. Just be true
to yourself and don't be afraid of anything. After all, you are forever.
Peace, Love, and Harmony,
John D. Alexander

Injury slows Cooper


in first year at Troy


Former Taylor County High
standout Katie Cooper recently
completed her freshmen season
with the Troy University soccer
team in Troy, Ala.
While the Lady Trojans did not
make it as far as they would have
liked, they did enjoy a successful
season that saw them make many
strides toward improving their
standing both nationally and in the
Sun Belt Conference.
Troy set or tied a total of 15 team


Taylor County High graduate Katie Cooper (9) recently
completed her freshmen season with the Troy University
soccer team in Troy, Ala. She finished the year with four
assists. Shown above, she fights for the ball against
Southeastern Louisiana. Left, Cooper competes against
Jacksonville State.,


or individual records in a break
through 2008 season, a season
where the Trojans finished 8-9-3,
the third best record in program,
history.
"Losing six one-goal games and
competing in every game this
season shows that we ha"e
accomplished a lot. The records
we have achieved are also
indicative of this", head coach
Chris Bentley said.
For the second consecutive
year, the Trojans raised the goals
scored, lowered their goals
allowed, and lowered their goals
against average. That in total
resulted in a goal differential of
plus 11.
"Those improvements are a
tribute to the commitment the girls
made to being more organized
defensively. There were a lot of
statistical improvements this year,-
which may not have been shown in
some of the results. However, we
feel confident that there is a lot of
promise ahead for Troy Soccer."
Bentley said.
Unfortunately, Cooper suffered
a torn ACL in one of the last games
of the season while playing against
Louisiana. She finished the year
with 4 assists and is hoping for a.
full recovery from her surgery by
the beginning of the 2009 soccer
season.

Tag Williams shows off his "cast" put on by Brent Stowers Holden Cooley and his dad, Bradley Cooley of Bronze by
of Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic while Trent Rabon and Aidan Cooley who discussed the process of making sculptures with
Cribbs look on. the class and allowed students to try their hand at sculpting.



ACA students learn about different



careers from community helpers


Submitted by Aucilla Christian
Academy
The Pre-K 4 class at Aucilla
Christian Academy (ACA), in
conjunction with the study of
community helpers, invited local
community helpers into the
classroom to share with students
how they help the community.
Several of the visitors were parents
of the children.
The first visitor was local
physician Dr. Wesley Scoles. He
brought instruments used in his
daily practice such as a stethoscope
and otoscope. The children were
allowed to take turns looking in
each others' throats and listening to
each others' heart beats. Dr. Scoles
also showed slides of his mission
trip to Brazil. The children learned
that- children in Brazil had never
been to a doctor and received their
first toothbrush from Dr. Scoles
when he visited them.
At the end of his visit he gave
each child a magnet with a photo
of a child in Brazil and the name of
his missionary group, "A Doctor's
Heart, Inc."
The children collected items that
were later given to Dr. Scoles to
take to the children in Brazil on his
next missionary trip.
I Next was Coach Daryl Adams,


father of Ryan Adams, one of our
Pre-K students. He shared his
experience as an Airman First
Class in the U.S. Air Force, as a
teacher, missionary, pastor and
coach. The children learned about
the exotic animals he encountered
on his mission trip to Africa. He
taught students that "Bwana
Asifiwe" means "Praise the Lord"
in Swahili.
He currently is the pastor at
Central Baptist Church in Aucilla
and coaches basketball, baseball
and football at ACA.
The Jefferson County Fire
Department came to teach students
about fire safety. After having
classroom discussions about what
to do in case of a fire and how to
call 911, one of the firemen put on
his f4!l -fire gear to. demonstrate
how a firemen would look in an
emergency.
Afterwards, the children went
outside to tour a firetruck,
ambulance and forestry equipment.
Two pharmacists came to share
their occupations. First was Angie
Williams, mother of Tag Williams.
Williams is a pharmacist at
Winn-Dixie in Monticello. She
showed the children how she
mixes antibiotics from powder to
liquid form. She also told them she

have items you wish to donate, please call 843-1872 or drop off items at
Thomas Chevrolet (in care of Lynn Harper).

Help the, PPD 'toys for tots' drive
The Perry Police Department has launched its annual Toys for Tots
drive. Residents are asked to bring new, unwrapped toys to the
department's downtown offices, located on Washington Street. Toys will
be distributed through local schools and service groups.


could make the medicine any
flavor they would like.
The second pharmacist was
Jennifer McLeod, mother of
Haylie McLeod.
McLeod is a pharmacist at Wal-
Mart in Perry. She shared some
pharmacist's tools for crushing and
mixing medications.
Kevin Tharpe, a Jefferson
County Sheriffs deputy, uncle of
Kaitlyn and Emma Tharpe,
stopped by with his K-9 Frodo for
a visit.
The class knew that officers
keep the bad guys away, but
Deputy Tharpe discussed with the
class how they help the community
in other ways. The highlight of the
visit was viewing his patrol car and
how it was modified for Frodo.
Bradley Cooley, of Bronze by
Cooley Creations, came to talk
about his bronze sculptures. He is
the father of Holden Cooley.


Capt. Terry Giles


Cooley has many sculptures on
display at area museums and
attractions. He discussed the
process of making sculptures with
the class and allowed them to try
their hand at sculpting.
The final visitor was Brent
Stowers of Tallahassee Orthopedic
Clinic. He is the father of Dilyn
Stowers, a second grade student at
ACA.
Stowers is an orthopedic
technician whose main job is
putting casts on broken bones. The
children got to experience first
hand how a cast is put on and taken
off. They also learned that casts
can come in all different colors.
The K-4 teachers, Tammy
Haselden and Jamie Rogers, and
students extended thanks to all of
the community helpers for taking
time out of their busy schedules to
come visit with the ACA
students.


Captain Terry Giles, formerly of
Perry, assumed command of the
Florida Army National Guard

Editorial


Advice offered to those


traveling to inauguration


B-2 Taco Times November 26, 2008


Sp


Dear Editor:
If you're planning or hoping to
go to Washington for President
Obama's inauguration, there are
some things you really need to
know if you don't want the
experience to be a total disaster.
While in the U.S. Navy I had three
tours of duty in Washington and
was there for two inaugurations,
although I didn't attend either.
There wasn't enough money in
circulation to PAY me to go to one
unless I could be guaranteed a seat
and transportation.
When Jimmy Carter was
inaugurated, I had several friends
in Jacksonville who attended.
While they had some memorable
experiences, none of them was
likely to ever sign up for another
one. Please allow me to explain.
The cost of almost everything
you buy there will seem
outrageous compared to prices in
Perry.
It is expected that the upcoming
inauguration will be attended by
the greatest number of people ever
to attend one. There are some
states that don't have as many
people in them as are expected to


be there. There will be huge lines
to get a taxi, bus, subway, train,
meal, restroom or anything else
essential to your pleasure.
Only a fortunate few thousand
get near enough to the Capitol
building to be able to see the two
presidents without binoculars, and
only a relatively small number of
them will be seated. Senator Bill
Nelson has already had more than
15,000 requests for tickets that
would get one somewhere near the
ceremony, and other members of
Congress have reported similar
problems.
The one million or more people
without tickets will be standing in
or near the Mall, which extends
westward from the Capitol. Go to
the bathroom before you get there,
and don't drink coffee. If there has
been a snowfall the day before
they can expect to stand in snow
for hours, because one must arrive
hours in advance to get anywhere
near the Capitol. If there has been
rain instead of snow they will
stand on wet ground. In 1962 the
temperature on inauguration day
was around ten degrees Fahrenheit,
if my memory is correct. If you


have never lived in such cold
weather you are in fdr a shock. It
saturates and numbs your body,
and the feet are especially
vulnerable unless you' have winter.. '.
socks and overshoes. Even they
won't keep the feet warm, but they
may prevent their freezing.
If you walk downtown in the
Washington area you will be
shocked by the displays and
propositions of prostitutes. Even
men with wives clinging to their
arms are fair game.
There are pickpockets, thieves
and various other types of
undesirable people who will try to
earn their living by taking from
visitors. No matter where you go,
you can expect to struggle to get
waited on or even to move around,
and traffic is terrible even on
normal days.
A president's inauguration is
truly a great event, and being there
will be an unforgettable
experience.
If you're going to Washington
and want to see it take place, set up
your TV recorder at home before
you leave.
Ray Evans

'Change has come'


Dear Editor:
After the last several letters to
editors and rumors about the
alleged gun and gang incident at
TCHS last week, I must respond in
support of the great TCHS
students, staff, school officers and
young adults of our community;
because this was a serious case of
stereotyping where our school
officers handled the situation with
character, class and up-most
professionalism. We should be
thankful we have school police
officer who place such high
emphasis on the safety of our
students.
Community, just as the kids,
students (high and college) and
young adults had fashion styles


Taco 91


(hair and clothes) from the 60s
until now--the kids and young
adults today continue to brilliantly
create their own styles. Remember
today's adults were the kids and
young adults of yesterday (the 60s
and 70s), be careful of how we
stereotype our youth of today.
Were you gang members, thieves,
drug addicts and murderers simply
because you wore jeans with holes
all over them, hair that hung down
below your butt or afros that
looked like a small bush, wore
shirts with peace or black power
signs, talked using slang,
disobeyed your parents sometimes
or hung out until 3 or 4 in the

and every one of you from the
bottom of my heart.
Shirley Donaldson


On cold morningS, when I fail to be
thankful for my alarm clock, I do remember
to be thankful for my warm house, which has
a sturdy roof and lives in the country
amongst the trees and the owls.
I am grateful.
On days when I lament the need to pay
bills, I hope I remember the man who
stopped me on the sidewalk for directions to
the post office. He walked with a limp and a
cane, and said he was new to town. .-As I
pointed to the north, T saw his look of
discouragement. I knew he couldn't possibly
get there on foot.
God forgive me for forgetting to be
thankful that I can walk, and when I need to
drive, for forgetting to be thankful that I
have reliable transportation and, often, the
money to cover my bills.
I am grateful.
On days when it is difficult to be thankful
for teenagers, I am reminded of my friend
whose life ended before her teenager
emerged from that magical time. How she
%would love to be in the company of
teenagers, all day, every day!
I am so grateful (and sorry for the times I


forget to be).
When the laundry is overwhelming, I hope I
remember to give thanks for my automatic
\\'asher and dryer. I could be using a scrub
board and a washtub like my grandmother
did. I have clothes...plenty of them.
And I am grateful.
W\'hen I complain about going to the grocery
store, I remember how poorly I did at
growing my own tomatoes this year and I'm
thankful for farmers who know how to feed
the rest of us.
Yes, I am grateful.
When I am overwhelmed by the demands of
work, I am reminded that another 625,000
people may lose their jobs this year because
of the financial crisis and its rippling effect.
And I am grateful for my own.
It is easy to live our days fretting and
complaining, making mountains out of
molehills, and forgetting the many blessings
which land at our feet every day,. often
unnoticed.
N Ma this Thanksgiving bring you reminders
of the goodness we enjoy, and may you be a
walking reminder of that goodness in the
holiday season ahead.

CHANGE
Continued from page 2
morning with friends? How did
you feel when or if you were
stereotyped?
It's downright ignorant and sad
that just because the kids of today
have created their own fashion to
stereotype them as being gang
members, drug dealers and thieves
just because they may have a
different hair style or their clothes
are simply baggy versus the skin
tight jeans and shirts of the 60s and
70s. Slop it! Stop it! Look at your
sons and daughters before they
leave the house in the morning for
school or tonight to hang out with
friends and think, hmmmnn. The
world is changing and revolving
on new ideals and not standing still
on the ideas and ways of
yesterday's styles or prejudice
thoughts and theories. Respect
other parents' children as you
would like other parents respect
your child. If not, these days you
could find yourself in court.
As our newly Elect-President
Barack Obama creatively and
elegantly speaks, "The time is now
for change in America," and the
