December 2007, some 992
people were killed in crashes
that involved a drunk driver or

In 2007, there were 12,998

Does your charity need contributions?
Advanced Refrigeration &
Air Conditioning is ending
2008 with charitable thoughts
about the new year.
"In these economic times, the
first thing that many businesses
are cutting back on are their
charitable contributions," said
Mike Jolley, owner of the
company. "That's what got me
to thinking that we should
make a special effort to support
these charities," he said. "The
Boys and Girls Club--just to
name one--has been good to us,
and good to the community,
and I would hate to see them
suffer because of business
"So we decided that in
January, we'll set aside $5 from
each service call for a
designated charity. We'll
change charities each month, in
order to help as many as we
can," he said.
Jolley needs to hear from
charities which would like to be
considered for this donation,
"They just need to send me a
W-9 to .520 W. Hampton
Springs Avenue, Perry, FL
32347. Every month, a drawing
%ill determine the charity
which w ill be announced on the
company's Web site. "

Sometimes I scare even myself.
Shortly after we moved to North
Florida, I developed a keen appreciation
for palmetto fronds, noting how nicely
they work in arrangements of greenery.
I have only a little palmetto of my
own, but my neighbors have offered
theirs, willingly. "Take all you want,"
the neigbbor said &almnt ip disgust
Then he scratched his head and asked,
"Why do you want it anyway?"
"Well, I use it on my mantel," I said.
That's when he and his wife looked at
me as if I must be from Alabama.
One day, when my neighborhood
sources dried up, I went to the paved
roads around us, scouting for palmetto
and finding good habitat for this native
But it created such a ruckus. Three
people stopped, two thinking I had car
trouble, and another asking, "What in
the world are you doing?" .
"Getting palmetto," I said. .
"Why?" this man, who was also my
"Because I want some," I said, tired of
"Well, be careful, you know snakes
like living around palmetto too."
From that day forward, I have
searched more carefully and only hope
they put on my tombstone, "She just
wanted some palmetto."
Other times, I desire magnolia and
I have been known to travel great
distances for magnolia. When I hear of
cemeteries having "work days," I go at
dusk on the night before the work, to
help with their clean-up.
"She steals flowers off graves," the
husband said to our friend, the deputy.
"I do not," I said, horrified that he
would even accuse me of such a crime.
"I have never stolen flowers from
any grave," I reiterated and gave the
husband a look which should have put
him in a grave.
"I have, however," I said in a sweet
and lilting voice, "improved the bushes
that surround the perimeter of the

his eyebrows and looking knowingly at
the husband and then at me.
"Define improve," the deputy said.
"My father taught me long ago how to
prune. He was an excellent gardener;
we had pear, apple, plum and peach
trees. He had 80 rosebushes. He grew
tomatoes and peppers at the back door,

while filling our backyard with poplar
trees, pecan trees, dogwoods, crepe
myrtles, red maples and magnolias."
.I paused and then I repeated for
emphasis, "I know how to prune."
They were both enjoying this far too
much, as men will do.
"One day she's going to call me from

My community. service of pruning
remains a standing joke in the bawdy
circles in which I travel and I mainly
ignore the racket, knowing that God
meant for us to enjoy this beautiful
world and I certainly do that.
But one day recently, I even scared
myself. The Christmas holidays, as you
know, bring a level of confusion that is
difficult to dispel, no matter how hard
And my list, which seems to grow
with every day of December, often has
me looking right and left for items I
need to purchase, gifts I need to pick
up, greenery I need to collect and
decorations I hope to accomplish. All
the while, I can listen to Christmas
carols and watch heaven and nature
sing. What I needed most that day,
however, were some feathers for a
small design I had in mind.
That's when I saw it: a bird which had
been hit by a car, lying on the roadside.
Its feathers were beautifully colored.
and textured. I think it might have
been a hawk but I couldn't be sure.
Without thinking, I swerved off the
pavement onto the shoulder of the
road and sat there. I looked back at
the feathers; I looked forward at my
reputation and then I had a very long
talk with myself.
"Cutting greenery is one thing," I
told myself, "but you can't be caught
plucking feathers from a dead bird
alongside the roadway."
Moments passed and then I drove
away, a sad woman with no feathers,
but with my reputation still intact.
Instead of pruning branches, I had
pruned bad impulses from good ones.
And perhaps that's not a bad thing to
do during the holidays.

Tax collector warns of
disabled placard scam
It's a shame to see people pay
for something they could get
for free. I really hate it when
I feel people are being taken
It has come to my attention
that some of our citizens have
received information that a
parking placard must be
purchased. This is not true.
Some deceitful individuals
are contacting senior citizens
through the mail and attempting
to process permanent disabled-
person parking placards for
a service fee that ranges $15

DMH employee calls for peace
I am an employee with DMH
and I'd like to write this note
in regards to the disagreement
between Dr. Khodr and Dr.
I feel like there should be peace
between these two doctors. This
is not the time to be doing this.
The hospital is already in crisis
and does not need to have more
stress and dysfunction put on
it by a disagreement between
two excellent doctors. I have
a daughter who has seen Dr.
Khodr since she was born and
he takes the very best care of
her. My "special needs" son

Perry is big enough to
support two children's doctors.
Without both of these doctors
here, people would be forced to

Department, which already
There needs to be
"togetherness" between two
very special doctors. There
is enough work for both. The
"winners' will be the children

Fund-raiser is a success
The local Special Olympics
program would like to thank the
community for supporting their
We were able to raise over
$500, all of which went to help
with the cost of operating the
local program. We are currently
participating in basketball
and have 25 athletes who are
working hard to perfect their
skills in hopes of advancing
to the state championships in
We would like to extend
a heart-felt thank you to the
following businesses for so
graciously donating the items
for our raffle and to Wal-Mart
for allowing us to sell tickets
at their entrance: American
Aluminum, customized truck
tool box; Ware Oil, $50 CITGO
gas card; Cox Electronics:
remote control truck and
battery pack; Mama's Italian
Restaurant, $25 gift certificate;
and Mitch's Gold, 24K earrings.
The lucky winners were:
Mary Dees (tool box), Megan
Stager (gas card), Angie
Soroka (remote control truck),
Jerry Weatherly (Mama's gift
certificate) and Sherry Price
We sincerely appreciate the
support of our businesses and
community. We pledge that 100
percent of your contributions
are spent on our local Special
Olympics athletes so that they
are able to participate in these
programs free of charge. It
would not be possible without
each of you.
Another great fund-raiser was
recently held by the owners of
the Beach Bar. They sponsored a
poker run and split the proceeds
with our program and the Boys
and Girls Club.
We were humbled and
grateful for this act of support
and kindness. Their sizable
donation was a tremendous help
to offset expenses from our trip
to the State Championships for
Gymnastics and Power Lifting.

'We have to protect our children'
Continued from page 2
were, but'is it against the law
to let your kids ride their bikes
and go to neighbors' houses, or
is it against the law to litter and
wrongfully dispose of hazardous
material like medication and
syringes? We have to protect our
children; this is how drugs get to
our children in and out of school.
When I took her to the
hospital, I was then told unless
the man that tossed his pills on
the side of the road admitted
to the needles being his they
could not make him get tested.
Should that be a decision he's
allowed to make after clearly
being so irresponsible? If he is
any kind of person he will do
the right thing and get tested,
but if he doesn't then what?
These children are ages 4-10;
there were five children playing
and we are very lucky they did
not take any of the pills. We are
very lucky there were no drugs
in the needles. This could have
ended up in tragedy.
We should all be concerned.
These are our children and the
future; don't just watch this
happen, something has to be
done. I also think the city should
take their jobs more seriously.
There is trash everywhere. We
are not trash so why should it be
on our streets?
The sheriffs office wants
drugs to stop but they drive by it
everyday and most officers that
are here to protect you have very
bad attitudes and that makes you
feel very unprotected as they are
here to serve us.
