For stabbing attack



Flowers gets 30-year sentence


Maurice Flowers, 20, pled
guilty to kidnapping, armed
robbery and attempted murder
for his role in a vicious attack
last year that nearly claimed the
life of former Walmart
employee Tonya LaFuente.
The surprise plea came
during case management
hearings before Judge James
Roy Bean Monday.
Jury selection was set to
begin Tuesday and Flowers'
trial was to begin today
(Wednesday).
Under the agreement reached


with the state attorney's office,
Flowers was sentenced to 30
years in prison for each charge
brought against him (count 1,
kidnapping; count 2, robbery
while armed with a firearm or
deadly weapon; and count 3,
attempted murder with deadly
weapon).
The sentences are to be
served concurrently. He was
also sentenced to 20 years
probation following his release
from prison.
The court recommended that
Flowers undergo anger


management classes while
incarcerated.
The victim, LaFuente, was
present during Monday's
hearing. Flowers addressed her
personally and told her he was
sorry for what he had done.
In her statement to the judge,
LaFuente, who was left with
limited use of her legs after
the attack, spoke of the
long-term effects of the
attack--both physically and
mentally.
Flowers was order to pay
court costs and restitution for


LaFuente's hospital bills, loss
of wages and workman's comp.
Had the case gone to trial,
Flowers faced three possible
life sentences.
Earlier his year, his co-
defendant in the case, Alexis
Manning, 25, entered a guilty
plea to charges of armed
robbery and attempted murder;
she was sentenced to life in
prison in May.
On Oct. 12, 2007, Manning
and Flowers attacked
LaFuente, who was on her
break outside Walmart around


1 a.m. They forced her to drive
her vehicle to an ATM at
Citizens State Bank and
withdraw money from her
account.
Afterward, she was forced to
drive to a secluded wooded
area off Bacon Street where she
was beaten, stabbed more than
20 times and left for dead.
Despite her injuries,
LaFuente was able to drag
herself to her vehicle and drive
back to Walmart, where she
was met by emergency medical
services.

Watch me grow
Taylor County Elementary School third grader Joshua Mixon related the
following account of a joint venture between 4-H and his school to hatch chicken
eggs in an incubator: "The.classes started their project around the first week in
October. Every class had an incubator with 30 fertile eggs. The eggs had to be
turned three times a day. The temperature had to be set at 98 to 102 degrees
Fahrenheit. After 21 days, most of the chicks hatched, but we did lose some. Kids
in each class were allowed to adopt the chicks and take them.home. This was a great
project. Everyone loved the chicks".. ..


Residents will see


small drop in taxes

SCounty and city residents will see an unexpected drop in their
property tax rates when they receive their bills later this month.
The city council arid county commission were forced to reduce
their millage rates after a computer glitch overestimated the
impact of the Amendment I tax reforms passed last year by some
$428,000.
When the board set rates earlier this year, they based those rates
on what they thought the county's (and city's) taxable value would
be, After accounting for the glitch, the value went up, so the
original millage rates would have resulted in extra funds.
Since the county and city had already approved their budgets for
the current year, the only remedy was to lower the rates to meet the
revenue they had projected to receive.
The commission held a special meeting Thursday, Nov. 13, to
lower the rates.
The county's original general fund millage rate of 7.2314 was
lowered to 7.0113.
The MSTU millage rate--which is levied on property owners in

A captain with Taylor
Correctional Institution (TCI)
was injured during a one-
vehicle crash that occurred
while he was on his way to
work Saturday.
Stephen Blanton, 48, was
airlifted from the scene on
Hampton Springs Road by
AirMedic One and transported
to Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital. He was treated for his
injuries and had been released
by Tuesday.
Florida Highway Patrol
Trooper Manuel Smyrnios
stated that Blanton was driving
west on Hampton Springs Road
around 7:12 a.m. when--for
unknown reasons--he traveled
onto the west shoulder,
overcorrected and crossed both
lanes of traffic.
"He then struck a small oak
tree on the east shoulder of the


road head-on. Blanton was able
to get out of the vehicle, which

hog, wrecks
A Perry man was seriously
injured after striking a large
hog with his 2006 Ford truck
Wednesday, Nov. 26.
Otto E Dickman, 60, was
northbound on C.R. 361 when
he hit the large hog at 10:30
p.m.; the impact caused his
vehicle to overturn two times.
The hog was killed and
Dickman, who was not
wearing a , seatbelt, was
transported to Doctors'
Memorial Hospital.

Hurricane season comes to an end


Sunday officially marked the storms to strike the United
end of the 2008 Hurricane States and ranks as one of the
Season, which produced a more active seasons in the 64
record number of consecutive years since comprehensive
IPrtifmia Mt ordhAlantitcTro c atM wandt urca:nes of 200rj


f-z

The 2008 Hurricane Season saw 16 named storms
develop, including eight hurricanes.


records began.
A total of 16 named storms
formed this season, according
to the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration's
(NOAA) National Hurricane
Center.
The storms included eight
hurricanes, five of which were
major hurricanes at Category 3
strength or higher. These
numbers fall within the ranges
predicted in NOAA's pre- and
mid-season outlooks issued in
May and August. The August
outlook called for 14 to 18
named storms, seven to 10
hurricanes and three to six
major hurricanes. An average
season has 11 named storms,
six hurricanes and two major
hurricanes.
"This year's hurricane season
continues the current active
hurricane era and is the 10th
season to produce above-
normal activity in the past 14
years," said Gerry Bell, Ph.D.,
lead seasonal hurricane
forecaster at NOAA's Climate
Prediction Center.
Taylor County escaped the
active season relatively
unscathed, with the notable
exception of Tropical Storm


Faye which dropped more than
18 inches of rain here.
The official rain gauge at
Perry-Foley Airport reported
18.5 inches of rain as Fay
crossed the county, while the
Division of Forestry gauge
showed 14.5 inches.
Fay is the only storm on
record to make landfall four
times in Florida, and to prompt
tropical storm and hurricane
watches and warnings for the
state's entire coastline (at
various times during its August
lifespan).
Overall, the season is tied as


the fourth most active in terms
of named storms (16) and
major hurricanes (five), and is
tied as the fifth most active in
terms of hurricanes (eight)
since 1944, which was the first
year aircraft missions flew into
tropical storms and hurricanes.
For the first time on record,
six consecutive tropical
cyclones (Dolly, Edouard, Fay,
Gustav, Hanna and Ike) made
landfall on the U.S. mainland
and a record three major
hurricanes (Gustav, Ike and

Weekend rain helps


bolster water table
This past weekend brought the first significant rain the
county has seen in some time, dropping almost an inch of rain
in just an hour Sunday morning.
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration, more than three quarters of an inch fell at
Perry Foley Airport between 7 and 8 a.m. Sunday.
For the day, the gauge recorded 2.05 inches of rain, which
was accompanied by winds gusting to 31 mph at times.

Editorial


Students commended



for achieving 'B' grade


B-2 Taco Times December 3, 2008


f
4p .


Dear Editor:
Last week, the students of
Taylor County High School
participated in a first-ever "fun
day" celebration in recognition
of their hard work in bringing
our school to a "B" grade.
We would like to commend
them, first, for their success last
year on the FCAT test and in the
classroom.
Many of our students have
seven classes of academics
every single day with no break.
They still manage to persevere


and, for the most part, keep a
good attitude.
It is not,however, the students'
academic successes that prompt
our letter. As we watched them
compete in the well-planned,
fun games provided by our
JROTC program, we were all
gratified by their behavior, their
spirit and their participation.
There were over 600 students
there; we had zero behavior
problems. The "mobile in-
school suspension" remained
empty.


In a time when most teenagers
are spoken of only in tones
of disapproval, we want our
students to know that we do
notice when they do right, and
we realize and appreciate their
daily struggles to achieve.
We are proud of them, and
were reminded last week what a
privilege and a joy it is to work
with the young people of this
community.
Sincerely,
The Teachers and Staff of
Taylor County High School

Dear Editor:
In reference to Wayne
Dunwoody's letter to the editor,
I want to say I agree, change
has come to America! And yes
we need to see changes like
that anyone can ride down the
road, go shopping at the local
and surrounding stores without
seeing saggy pants exposing
someone's underwear and
backside! This is an issue with
all races. By the way, I am a
proud Muskogee Creek Native
American.
As I can recall, hair and
clothes from the 60s-70s did not
include showing your backside
off. It doesn't make any sense
to me to hold your pants up
while walking or even doing the
simplest things. Why buy pants
that are 5 sizes too large? And I
cannot understand wearing way
too tight clothing either.
The other day I was
traveling on Hwy.. 19 and'
noticed an individual walking
with his pants way past his
buttocks showing his boxers
and backside. This is not a
"brilliant" fashion statement.


This is a statement of "I can
dress however I want, nothing
you can do about it if I expose
myself." One just as well not
put their pants on and walk the
streets or public shopping areas
just in one's boxers. Why bother
getting dressed?! And, yes, it
most certainly offends me no
matter the color of skin!
The-bare-your-britches
fashion is believed to have
started in prisons, where
inmates aren't given belts with
their saggy pants to prevent
hangings and beatings and other
crimes within prison walls.
And by the late 80s; the trend
made it to gangster rap videos,
skateboards and then to the
hallways of America's schools.
Proposals to ban saggy
pants are starting to pop up in
several places. Wearing saggy
pants low enough to show
one's boxers or backside in one
smnal ) ,iu, iah : fpLnX'*tiana-s'
six months in jail and a $500
fine. A crackdown in Atlanta,
Ga., is also being pushed. And
in Trenton, N.J., getting caught
with your pants down may


soon result in not only a fine,
but also a city worker assessing
where your life is heading.
Yes Trenton, New Jersey is
drafting a law to outlaw saggy
pants. So the message is clear
across America: we want to see
change, "we don't want to see
anyone's backside."
And I might add Mr.
Dunwoody, I see nothing
brilliant about seeing anyone's
boxers! I invite all concerned
citizens of Perry to call me
and get together and stop this
saggy-pants-showing-boxers
trend. I challenge the county
commission to outlaw this
trend!
Do I think wearing saggy
pants makes you a criminal,
drug user or a gang member? No
I do not. But it is indecent! And
Mr. Dunwoody, I invite you to
call me anytime to discuss this
issue. Last but not least, I have
a stepson who resides in Tampa,''
who wears saggy pants and I
still disapprove of it!
Citizens of Perry, we can
change this trend. Yes we can!

Patient's wife praises doctor


Dear Editor:
We would like to send our
sincerest thanks. to Dr. Bilal &.
Mirna Khodr, along with the
staff of Premier Medical Clinic,
and the Pediatric Clinic.
My husband Phil had what
was later determined to be a


severe case of food poisoning.
Dr. Khodr himself came into
the waiting room to retrieve us
and immediately started Phil on
fluids and medication due to be-
ing severely dehydrated and in
extreme pain.
We had a very rough two days


and during those two days Mir-
na Khodr and Dr. Khodr called
and came by, to see us several
times.
We love you guys and pray
you never leave Perry.
With our most heartfelt thanks,

Midweek Muddle


It's true, I'm a thespian....


By SUSAN H. LIF


Last week, I shut the door to the
publisher's office after working
through a gut-wrenching situation, and
spoke a cheerful, "Good morning, how
are you?" to a customer in the front
office. She never knew I was hanging
on by a thread.
That's when I. realized what I have
become: a thespian.
For those of you, like Archie Bunker,
who have trouble with words which
sound like others but have opposite
meanings, let me' assure you that
I'm not coming out of the closet as a
lesbian, but as a thespian---one who
acts or portrays dramatic roles in a
theatrical setting.
There are many of us out there.
I believe anybody who owns a small
business is a thespian.
Anyone who runs a family is a
thespian.
Anybody who rises above the grind of
the day to answer the question, "How
are you?" with a "Fine, thank you," is a
thespian.
It seems to me that it takes a good
deal of theatre just to make life' on this
planet tolerable on some days, and
pleasant on others. That realization
seems to become more accurate as the
years tick by.
Through those years, the husband
and I have enjoyed a short-lived
British comedy entitled "Fawlty
Towers." Public Television stations
across the nation re-run the series once
or twice a year, but since that wasn't
enough for us, we bought the video
too. The show centers around a married
couple running a hotel. But, actually, it
was about me and the husband.
And perhaps you and your husband.
Or maybe whomever you work and
play with.
"Fawlty Towers" was strictly for fun,
but made meaningful commentary
about the good fronts people put up for
others to see, in the face of criticism,
cursing, crisis and confusion.
Among my favorite episodes is
one which features John Cleese, who


NCOLN


plays Mr. Fawlty,' gree iWl, 'gjWe'y-
bedecked elderly women who actually
live in his hotel that others only
frequent.
"Good morning, Mr. Fawlty," they say
in unison. "How are you today?" they
then ask, with pocketbooks upon their
arms.
He smiles officially, looks charming,
and replies in a garbled sentence,'so
their hearing aids can't, record the
answer, "Very well, ladies; one of the
guests died last night."
They smile and nod, reply, "fow
nice," and the three of them stroll away
to breakfast. In the show's reality, one
of the guests had just died, but as hotel
owner (who also functions as concierge,
maitre 'd, handyman and occasionally
the cook), he has to present a cool
and unaffected front, while thinking
of diversions for the remaining guests
who happen to have a pulse.
My phone calls and office visits
during a random day can range from
a Mother of the Bride in-a-tiff, to
charges of racism, favoritism or fatal
conservatism, to a tearful plea for
removal from the Booking Desk, or a
mandate from someone I've never met
with a bunch of expletives deleted.
And, yes, as you very well know, it
grates on your nerves and rattles your
bones, but I've learned painfully to look
up and say to my next opportunity
for praise or condemnation, "Good
morning, how are you today?"
So I take this week after Thanksgiving,
when the Christmas season is already
in full swing, to remind you what my
mother once taught me: "How are you?"
is a greeting, not a question. Don't
sort out your laundry, lament your
day, or rehearse your ailments. The
appropriate answer is, "Fine. Thank
you for asking."
This season, you can be grateful for
those who remember.
For the others, hone your best
theatrical skills and remember that the
world is but a stage.
Break a leg.

An eyewitness first on the
scene saw Blanton laying on
the shoulder of the road beside
his truck and pulled him
further to safety.


TAXES
Continued from page 1
the unincorporated areas of the
counties for services duplicated
by the City of Perry (such as
fire protection)--was lowered
from 1.1523 to 1.1215.
According to City Manager
Bob Brown, he advised the city
council last month of the
problem.
After consulting with
.attorneys with the state, Brown
said it was determined that he
could administratively lower


the rate.
The new millage rate for city
residents is 4.4461, down from
4.6675.
According to Taylor County
Tax Collector Jack Tedder and
Property Appraiser Eldon
Sadler, the problem originated
during the computer
programming process where
the programmer had to
implement all the various
exemptions mandated by
Amendment 1, which was
passed in 2007.
The county contracted with


Frilling Consulting of
MacClenney, as did several -
other North Florida counties, to
do the computer programming.
All the counties (Suwannee,
Baker and Lafayette) which
utilized Frilling are
experiencing similar problems
to Taylor, Sadler said.
The error did not affectthe
amount of revenues the Taylor
County School District expects
to receive this year because
school districts were exempted
from most of the provisions
included in Amendment 1.


What triggered 2008 storms?


HURRICANE SEASON
Continued from page 1
Paloma) struck Cuba.
This is also the first
Atlantic season to have a
major hurricane (Category 3)
form in five consecutive
months (July: Bertha, August:
Gustav, September: Ike,
October: Omar, November:
Paloma).
Bell attributes this year's
above-normal season to
conditions that include:
* An ongoing multi-decadal
signal. This combination of
ocean and atmospheric
conditions has spawned
increased hurricane activity
since 1995.
* Lingering La Nifia effects.
Although the La Nifia that
began in the Fall of 2007 ended
in June, its influence of light
wind shear lingered.


Drought index

down to 440
WEEKEND RAIN
Continued from page 1
The rain gauge at the Perry
Forestry Station recorded 1.5
inches Sunday, followed by 0.9
on Monday.
Prior to the storm, only one
half of an inch of rain had
fallen, according to the
Division of Forestry gauge.
The rain helped the county's
drought index, which had been
steadily increasing in recent
weeks. On Saturday, the index
was recorded at 618 (out of a
possible 800). By Monday, that
number was down to 440.


* Warmer tropical Atlantic
Ocean temperatures. On
average, the tropical
Atlantic was. about 1.0
degree Fahrenheit above
normal during the peak of the'
season.
NOAA's National Hurricane
Center is conducting
comprehensive post-.event
assessments of each. named
storm of the season.
Some of the early
noteworthy findings include:
* Bertha was a tropical
cyclone for 17 days (July 3-20),
making it the longest-lived July
storm on record in the Atlantic
Basin.
* Paloma, reaching Category
4 status with top winds of 145
mph, is the second strongest
November hurricane on record


behind Lenny in 1999 with top
winds of 155 mph).
Much of the storm-specific
information is based on
operational estimates and some
changes could be made during
the review. process that is
underway.
"The information.we'll gain
by assessing the events from
the 2008 hurricane season will
help us do an even better job in
the future," said Bill Read,
director of NOAA's National
Hurricane Center.
"With this season behind us,
it's time to prepare for the one
that lies ahead."
NOAA will issue its initial
2009 Atlantic Hurricane
Outlook in May, prior to the
official start of the season on
June 1.

Golden Corral

welcomes Red

Hat members
By CHERYL GREGORY
Publicity Chair
Bert Sabol, Jeanne
Hilgendorf, Marne Helberg,
and Esther Ehle (pictured at
right) were hostesses for the
Nov. I luncheon/meeting of
the Roseheads of Perry, chapter
2207 of the Red Hat Society.
Jeanne Hilgendorf greeted
ladies at the door of Golden
Corral and directed them to a
banquet area, which was
decorated in the Red Hat colors
of red and purple. There were
20 Red Hatters (19 members
and I guest) present.
Hand-knitted doilies and pin
cushions in a variety of lovely
colors were on the tables as
keepsake gifts from the
November committee. These
beautiful and useful items were
made by Red Hatter Esther
Ehle.
Jeanne Hilgendorf rang the
Red Hat bell and welcomed
everyone. Bert Sabol said the
blessing.
Following lunch, Cheryl
Gregory reported that the
Relay team will hold a bake
sale on the. evening of Friday,
Dec. 5, in front of O'Quinn's
Pharmacy during the
Downtown Show Fest.
"Change For Change" was
collected for the ACS, too.
Gregory continued with details
of the Red Hat Day held Oct.
7th at Belk's in the Oaks Mall
in Gainesville. "We hope all of
you will plan to go next year. It
was great fun!"
Debi Limoges, secretary-
treasurer, introduced "Laura
Bear" wearing her Diamond
Diva name pin. "She now
travels from committee to
committee with our Red Hat
supplies and will be with us at
each luncheon - just as our
Rosehead Sister Laura Taylor
- Akuld if she were" fiere.'.
Limoges also accepted 2009
dues from the members. "Dues
of $10 are needed by Dec. 31,"
she reminded.
Because of no luncheon in
October, Hilgendorf
recognized the October
birthday of Queen Mother
Hattie Adams. Adams thanked
everyone for the cards, phone
calls, and gifts that made her
93rd birthday wonderful.
Cheryl Gregory was
recognized for her upcoming
November birthday.
Barbara Patrick attended the
"Hoots, Haunts, and Hats" in
Savannah, Ga., in October.
After giving a brief report on
this convention, she shared
basic details of next year's
convention and invited more to
attend. "Also, if you don't have
a Purple Perks membership, I
encourage you to join. It's a
well spent $20."
The service staff cleared the
dishes from the tables while
the ladies visited the dessert
bar, making selections from
cakes, pies, cookies, brownies,
cobblers and more.
Marne Helberg led the
drawing for door prizes. All the
door prizes were handmade
items--soap, lotions and
doilies. The November
committee was applauded for
planning this enjoyable time.
The next meeting, to be held
Saturday, December 6th, will
be the Christmas party and will
include a gift exchange.

Blount sets new


DuckTD record
Former Taylor County High standout LeGarrette Blount broke
Oregon's school record for rushing touchdowns in a single season
Saturday as he helped lead his 16th-ranked Oregon team to a 65-38
win over No. 17 and arch-rival Oregon State.
Blount's 9-yard score in the first quarter was his 16th of the year
and broke a Duck record that has stood for more than a decade.
While Blount, a junior, rushed for 112 yards on 17 carries, it
was his counterpart -- senior Jeremiah Johnson -- that got most the
accolades with his 219-yard rushing performance on Saturday.
Blount and Johnson helped Oregon set a single-season school
record for team rushing yards. The 385 total Saturday brought the
Ducks' total to 3,329 for the year, breaking the 3,272 from 2007.
Blount, who had a 46-yard run in Saturday's contest, now has
928 yards on the season on 130 carries and has a team-leading 7.1
yards-per-carry average.
Oregon (9-3) not only denied Oregon State (8-4) a PAC 10 title
and a spot in the Rose Bowl, but scored more points on the Beavers
than anybody in history.
Oregon still has a post season game to play, probably the Holiday
Bowl, possibly against Oklahoma State or Missouri.
Blount needs just 72 yards rushing in the bowl game to complete
his sixth-straight 1,000-plus yard season dating back to his
sophomore year at Taylor County High.


TCHS gi
The Taylor County High girls
varsity soccer team finished off
an important week in district
play just before Thanksgiving
with a 3-0 record in the district.
On Nov. 18 the Lady 'Dogs
took on arch rival Florida High
with the winner laying claim to
1st place in the district.
The game started as a battle
with both teams' defenses taking
control of the game. Then 20
minutes into the first half Macy
Gregory laid off a nice pass to
Savannah Cantrell 30 yards
out from goal. Cantrell then
dribbled though the Seminole
defense to get one-on-one with
the keeper to finish with a goal
over the outstretched hands of
the Noles' keeper.
- The game remained 1-0
through the first half.

rls atop district standings


In the second half the Florida
High team came out with a
little more fight and pressured
the Bulldog defense anchored
by Brooke Barton, Elizabeth
Devane, Kelsie Symrios and
Sarah Meecham.
"The Noles came out
penetrating our third of the
field,, but our defense is starting
to play well together and
we limited their looks at our
goal," said Coach Dara Nix.
"I wouldn't trade our keeper,
Korie Wilson, for any. She is
an impact player back there.
Between the defense and Korie
we're able to shut down a lot of
real threats."
Later in the second half the
Lady 'Dogs added another
goal when freshman Ashley
Mixon played a nice diagonal


ball over the Seminole defense
to Gregory who was waiting
in front of the goal to put the
second goal of the night in the
back of the net.
A few minutes later the
Bulldogs added a third goal
when Cantrell drove the ball
deep into the box carrying a
Florida High defender with her
allowing her to lay the ball off
to Junior Gloria Taylor, who
placed a beautiful shot in the
lower left corner of the goal,
making it 3-0.
Florida High was able to
mount a late charge scoring 2
goals, but time ran out giving
Taylor County a big district 3-2
victory.
On Nov. 20 the Bulldogs took
on district rival Madison. It
didn't take long for the Bulldogs


to score against the Cowgirls
when Cantrell fed a through-ball
to outside midfielder Symrios,
who put it on frame for the first
goal of the night.
After that the Bulldogs scored
plenty and often. Gregory
had three goals and an assist,
followed by Cantrell with two
goals and three assists.
Others in the scoring mix were
Senior Cindy Wilson with a goal
and defender turned forward for
the evening Elizabeth Devane -
with one goal. Hayden Barton
and Jordan Williams both had
assist.
The game ended early in the
second half due to the game
being stopped by the "mercy"
rule.
Taylor won 8-0 to go to 5-1-0
overall.


FWC set to cut grouper limits


A final public hearing on
proposed rule amendments for
gag and red grouper in Gulf of
Mexico state waters will be held
Thursday at the Florida Fish
and Conservation Commission
meeting at the Doubletree
Grand Key Resort at Key West
Dec. 3-4.
These proposals would
reduce the recreational bag limit
for Gulf gag grouper from five
fish to two fish daily per person,
prohibit the recreational harvest
of Gulf gag grouper from Feb. 1
through March 31 and increase
the recreational bag limit for
Gulf red grouper from one fish
to two fish daily per person.
Another final public hearing
will take place on proposed rule
amendments that would increase
the recreational minimum size
limit for greater amberjack from
28 to 30 inches fork length and
increase the commercial and
recreational minimum size limit
for gray triggerfish from 12 to
14 inches fork length in Gulf
state waters.
< The Wednesday, Dec. 3
agenda will focus on inland
issues, including proposed
legislation to clean up boating


statutes related to vessels
and vessel registration. Also,
Commissioners will consider
final action on boating
restrictions in Martin and
Okeechobee counties, based
on a vessel traffic study and
requests for revisions from
stakeholders and governmental
bodies.
In addition, Commissioners
will hear staff reports on
Everglades water and wildlife
issues and consider draft rules
to improve Florida's quota hunt
program for sportsmen who use
the state's wildlife management
area system. The Commission
also will review a set of draft
rules concerning wildlife and
FWC-managed areas.
Commissioners also will
hear an update on a general
management plan for the Big
Cypress National Preserve
Addition and an update on
the recent summit, "Florida's
Wildlife: On the Front Line of
Climate Change."
Also during Wednesday's
session, Commissioners will
review and consider a land swap

of Trustees at the FWC-managed
Tenoroc Fish Management
Area. The proposal is for an
FWC-managed 10-acre tract
to go to Saddle Creek Corp. in
exchange for 40 acres adjacent
to state-owned land.
FWC Commissioners will
select a new chairman and vice
chairman for 2009 during the
Thursday, Dee. 4 session.
In other marine fisheries
action, the FWC will consider
a draft rule amendment that
would end the moratorium on
the reduction of lobster trap
certificates and provide that the
number of trap certificates will
be reduced by 10 percent to a
purchaser only when they are
sold or transferred to someone
outside the immediate family of
the certificate holder.
The Commission also will
consider a series of draft rule
amendments for the marine life
(aquarium species) fishery. The


proposed rules would add new
fish and invertebrate species
to marine life regulations,
establish or change size and bag
limits and gear specifications
for several marine life species,
and make other administrative
and technical marine life rule
changes.
In addition, the FWC will
consider a draft rule that would
establish six regional closed
seasons around the state to the
harvest of blue crabs with traps.
These closures would extend for
a period of up to 10 days each to
help identify and retrieve lost
and abandoned blue crab traps
from Florida waters.
Commissioners also will
review and discuss several
federal Gulf and Atlantic fishery
management issues.

Dec. 6 will be a busy day for churches in community


First, there's worship:
First Baptist Church of Perry will present the multi-media choral
program, "Once Upon a Holy Night" on Saturday, Dec. 6, and
Sunday, Dec. 7, beginning at 6 p.m. in the sanctuary of the church,
located on the corner of Center and Green Streets in Perry.
The church's Celebration Choir, under the direction of Sara
Sue Grambling, chose the musical for its reverent and worshipful
tones. "Christmas is such an awesome time to remind people of the
holiness of God and the magnitude of the miracle of Jesus' birth,"
Grambling said. "We are praying that our program will help people
move away from the typical trappings of Christmas, to a greater
'awareness of the incredible gift of Christ's first coming to earth,
e ven as we prepare our lives and hearts for his second coming."
"Once Upon a Holy Night" will include the adult and children's
choirs, dramatic narrative and a background video. "Scenes from
modernn day Jerusalem and Bethlehem are shown next to pictures of
Sthe biblical towns some 2000 years ago. When you add the beauty
of the choir's musical worship, the effect is very compelling," she
Said, urging everyone to attend.

There is also a seminar...
SFirst Presbyterian Church of Perry and its Stephen Ministry
Program present "Am I Blue?," a seminar on identifying and
managing depression, on Saturday, Dec. 6, from 9-11:30 a.m. in the
