Arson suspected


in vehicle, Yates


Creek Bridge fire


Blues musician Larry McCray gave Ben Batten a once-in-a-lifetime offer
Saturday, a chance to perform with him on stage.


GuitaLor


By MARK VIOLA
Staff writer
It started with a phone call.
It ended on stage with a
world-renowned musician.
For Ben Batten, a local
college student attending
Florida State University, that
is how his Saturday evening
progressed.
Like many others, Batten
attended the inaugural
Southern Pines Blues and
BBQ Festival Saturday with
hisfamily and girlfriend.
S-'.liue -in Tallahassee but


work in town on the
weekends with my cousin,
Bill Blue," Batten said.
"We just decided to go out
to the blues festival. I was
excited for something like
that to come to town."
While there, Batten
entered a raffle for a chance
to win a Gibson Les Paul
electric guitar, donated by
the company to help raise
funds for the festival.
Between himself, his parents
and his girlfriend, they
.purchased 34 of the more


non


than 1,000 tickets sold
during the two-day event. As
it . turned out, that was
enough.
Around 9 p.m. that
evening, Blues musician
Larry McCray, who was due
to play later, walked onstage
and pulled the winning ticket
from the guitar's case. When
festival committee member
Greg Parker called out
Batten's name, however, he
wasn't there.
"*, Please see page 3.


The State Fire Marshal's
Office is investigating a fire on
Yates Creek Bridge that
destroyed both a vehicle and
the bridge.
"This fire has been
determined to have been
intentionally set. The vehicle
was reported stolen from an
address off Puckett Road in
Perry," Det. Karl Morgan said.
(See photo page A-3.)
The fire occurred shortly
after 10:06 a.m. on Sunday,
Nov. 30. Anyone with
information is asked to contact
the Taylor County Sheriffs


Office at 584-2429 or Morgan
at (850) 413-3903.
The Bureau of Fire and
Arson Investigations is the law
enforcement branch of the
Division of State Fire Marshal
that assists other state and local
law enforcement agencies in
the investigation of fires of
suspicious origin.
Anyone with information
about any suspicious fire is
asked to c4ll 1-877-662-7766).
Information may also be
mailed to: Arson Control, P.O.
Box 1654, Winter Park, FL
32790.


162 drivers stopped


at PPD checkpoints


Some 162 vehicles were
stopped Saturday night during
the first drunk driving
checkpoints being coordinated
by the Perry Police Department
(PPD).
Checkpoints were manned
on Ash Street at Johnson
Stripling Road and Allen Street
from 7-11 p.m. During that
four-hour time period, law
enforcement officers made one
arrest for driving under the
influence (DUI), one arrest for
illegal drugs and three arrests
for driving with a suspended
license (DWLS), PPD :Capt.
Jamie Cruse reported.
"We also issued numerous
traffic'iaotii'.rons and equipment
violations,"' he said.


The Florida Highway Patrol
contributed manpower and
equipment to the checkpoint
program. Taylor County
Sheriffs Office deputies also
supported the effort through
manpower contributions.
"This was a good example of
state and local agencies
working together to help ensure
the safety of our citizens on the
roads," Cruse said.
He also extended thanks-to
Bums Funeral Home for its
support of officers manning the
checkpoint located on Johnson
Stripling Road, as well as
Marty Tompkins, who
volunteered on his own time to

Cold temperatures, red hot blues


Frigid temperatures may
have hampered attendance at
the inaugural Southern Pines
Blues and BBQ Festival, but
organizers are calling the event
a success.
"Everyone who was there,
from the guests to the barbecue
cookers to the musicians, said
they enjoyed themselves and
wanted to come back next
year," said festival coordinator
Dawn Taylor.
The event, Taylor County's
latest music festival, featured
more than 18 hours of blues
music, from regional acts to
nationally recognized names.
The festival was host to four
barbecue competitions, which
kept almost 45 teams busy
throughout the weekend.
Headlining the events was the
Florida Barbecue Association's
Triple Crown Challenge which
featured 30 top cookers from
Florida, Georgia and Alabama,


vying for some $15,000 in cash
and prizes. A backyard
competition featured local
teams alongside those from
across the region for cash
prizes and bragging rights. A
sauce contest drew more than
70 entries, some from as far
away as Texas.
Elsewhere in the park,
festival-goers were able to
judge for themselves the top
barbecue in the people's choice
event, with 27 varieties to
sample.
(For the results from the
competitions, see related story.)
On the entertainment
mainstage, the music kicked
off with Used Blues of
Gainesville. The Rocky Athas
Group from Texas and Johnny
Marshall followed.
Larry McCray finished the
night. Joining him for one song

Second place went to Wolfe

to Big Papa's Country Kitchen

Some 30 teams from
Georgia, Alabama and Florida
took part in the.Triple Crown
competition; the teams were

from FBA sanctioned events.
The grand champion took
home several thousand dollars
in cash prizes and awards
including merchandise from
the Big Green Egg and
BBQGuru.com (which was the
title sponsor for the Triple
Crown event).
"Many competitive BBQ
teams spend an average of
$1,000 per contest; to truly be
competitive, most teams have
more than $10,000 in
equipment alone," BBQ
officials said.
"This is serious business and

positive feedback from
everyone who took part in the
competition and hope that next

both Athas and Fowler onstage
to jam together for several

"While we had hoped for a
larger audience, we're calling
this a success and something
we can build on for next year,"
Taylor said. "The barbecue
events were very successful,
exceeding our expectations.
"As for the music, everyone
told us this was one of the best
line-ups they had been to.
"We want to thank all of our
sponsors. Without them, this

help with the drunk driving
crackdown program.
Working under the tagline
"Drunk Driving. Over the
Limit. Under Arrest.," the
police department plans to man
additional checkpoints on New
Year's Eve at Old Dixie
Highway, Thomas Demps
Lane and Puckett Road.
PPD officials recommend
designating a sober driver and
not letting friends drive drunk
as just two of several simple
steps to avoid a tragic crash or
an arrest for impaired driving.
Other important tips include:
* Plan ahead: Whenever you
plan on consuming alcohol,
designate your sober driver
before going out and give that
person your keys;
* Promptly report drunk
drivers you see on the
roadways to law enforcement;
* Wearing your seat belt or
using protective gear on your
motorcycle is your best
defense against an impaired
driver.

When it was time for the
awards to be announced
Saturday evening, team
members filled the area
surrounding Heritage Pavilion
at Forest Capital State Park.
Each cheered for the other.as
the top 10 winners were

"There really is a family
atmosphere among BBQ


competitors--we see each other

At first, he was hesitant to
answer the call.

thie education of Taylor
County Citizens."


"I was confused," Batten
said.
His girlfriend wasn't.
"She knew right away what it
was and told me to answer it."
The voice on the line was
Dawn Taylor, another festival
committee member, with the
news he had won.
A short while later, he was
back at Forest Capital State
Park to pick up his prize.
After he arrived, McCray
joined Batten for several
photos to celebrate his win.
"Larry came up to me to
compliment me on winning,"
Batten said.
The conversation, however,
quickly changed from the
guitar to Batten himself.
"He asked me if I played the
guitar and how long I had
played. Then he asked me if I
felt comfortable joining him for
a song.
"I took a second to think
about it. Then I said I could do
it."
A half an hour before, Batten
was home preparing for a quiet
evening.

song, but I knew what key it
was in, so I went from there.

recently implemented a
management plan for greater
amberjack and gray triggerfish
ii Gulf federal waters. Greater
amberjack in the Gulf are
considered to be overfished
(low stock abundance) and
Undergoing overfishing
(excessive harvesting pressure).
Gray triggerfish in the Gulf are
considered to be undergoing
overfishing.

help people face life's challenges
when they seem too stressful
or out of control," he said.
"Pastoral counseling provides
a faith-based, non-sectarian
approach that respects the
spiritual and religious traditions
of those who seek help."
Lutz commented an
overwhelming number of
Americans recognize the close
link between faith/religious
values and mental health. "They
often prefer to seek help from a
mental health professional who
recognizes and respects these
values," he added.
If you're wondering what
kinds of issues pastoral
counselors address, he provides
a list: self-esteem; depression;
stress and anxiety; coping
with illness, pain or disability;
relationship issues; spiritual
and religious conflicts; loss and
grief; major life changes; abuse
and trauma issues; marital issues
and pre-marital assessments.

The B*yd Report: oatos no on

**A *** A * A************** At*


Congressman Allen Boyd last
week voted against legislation
to bailout the U.S. auto industry,
citing his concern that this
bailout will not be beneficial to
the taxpayers in the long run.
The Auto Industry Financing
and Restructuring Act (HR
7321) passed in the House of
Representatives by a vote of
237 to 170.
"My top priorities are to
grow our economy and protect
the taxpayers, and I am not
convinced that bailing out the
U.S. auto industry will do either
of those things," said Boyd.
"I believe that American
capitalism is the greatest
economic system in the world,
and we have to let the markets
work. The U.S. auto industry
has been struggling for quite


some time, and it's very
clear that they need to make
substantive, structural changes
so that they can compete in a
global economy."
The Auto Industry Financing
and Restructuring Act would
provide up to $15 billion in
short-term bridge loans to aid
the U.S. auto industry. Under
this legislation, the President
would designate one or more
individuals, known as a "car
czar," to hold the car companies
accountable for developing and
implementing viable long-term
restructuring plans and to ensure
compliance on financing efforts.
"Our nation is facing
serious economic challenges,
and there is a role for the
federal government to play
in stimulating our economy,"


Boyd said. "However,
committing taxpayer dollars to
a specific industry without any
clear strategy that the money
will be put to good use or repaid
is not the appropriate role for
the federal government.
"I am hopeful that this
economic downturn will
result in a renewed interest in
Washington to clean up the
federal budget and address our
long-term fiscal challenges,"
Boyd continued.
"The first step is for our
government to stop spending
more than it has and start living
within its means. I look forward
to working in the next Congress
to implement fiscal policies
that will put our country back
on a path toward economic
prosperity for years to come."'

Letters to the Editor


Hospital withholds doctor's note


until couple makes co-payment?


Dear Editor:
My husband is a welder and
burnt his eyes. I took him out
to the emergency room about
10:30 p.m. to get his eyes seen
about. If you have ever had
burnt eyes, you know they
really hurt.
When we got' to the hospital
everyone was really helpful
and nice. I registered him, gave
them my insurance information
and when it got time to leave,
the doctor had given him a
prescription and a work release
note for his job. I went to where
you have to go to check out and
was asked if I had the $50 co-
pay. I explained that I did not
Sand. she proceeded to tell me
. th---i- ' I did not have any
money they were not going to
give me his work release to give
his employer.
I thought that was the craziest
thing I have ever heard of. I
asked her how they could take a


doctor's order that was given to
him and decide if they will give
it to us. I know the hospital is
broke but treating the people of
Perry like that is not going to
help anything. They are making
it where you will have two
choices, don't go to work and
get fired due to they keep your
doctor's note and have no money
to pay them at all or go to work
and injure their self even more
when a doctor has told them for
their health not to work.
Times are hard and if they
think things are going to get
better by treating people like this
they have life in a blender and
need to think about the people
they are going to be hurting
that really might need medical
attention and not go due to not
having any money. I also know
that a lot of businesses will let
you go if you do not have a
doctor's note and the last thing
people of Perry need is their


own hospital contributing to
people losing their jobs because
they are poor.
Thank God I have a job where
I would not need a note but this
just ran all the way through me
when she told me this. I think
the hospital should come up
with a better plan than this. 1
don't have a big college degree
but common since should tell
anyone this is ridiculous way
to try and get people to pay.
I would think working with
people and trying to set up
payment plans would be better
than costing them their jobs.
I wonder what they do if you
have no job? Not see you? Just
let you suffer? I am very upset
and disappointed in our hospital
and won't be back and just
wanted the people of Perry to
know what a caring hospital we
have now.


Sincerely,
Nancy Johnson Sadler

Dear Editor:
First of all, my article was on
stereotyping and the excellent
work by our school police
officers, not about pants hanging
below the waist showing boxers.
I never stated in the article that
I approve or disapprove of kids
showing their underwear while


in the public!
If you desire to attack those
who do, I suggest you relate
your own name with the
subject and' keep mine out of
it; or the next time you see a
young man with their boxers
showing, approach them with
your concerns. Don't be scared!

Matter of fact; make a trip over
by Tidewater Apartments and
state your complaint in person
if you see any? I clearly stand
by what I said: "Clothes and
hair styles do not mean a person
is in a gang!" and folks need
to quit assuming all who wear
dreadlocks, baggy ,pants or
different color hair styles are
gang members.
If they do wear their pants
below the waist or show their
boxers, it still doesn't mean
they're in a gang. I have over
20 pair of baggy jeans and
none of them fall below my
waist, just because I referred
to baggy pants in my article
does not mean all baggy pants
hang below the waist. Showing
boxers and pants below the
waist relates to your personal
feelings, it may bother you
and not others. There you go
stereotyping all persons that
wear baggy jeans show their
underwear.
If you want to pursue a ban on
showing boxers while in public
then you do so but keep me out
of your pursuit. I control my
home and my office on attire. I
have better things to do with my
time such as helping feed the
hungry, housing and clothing the
homeless, helping the jobless
get jobs, pushing the youth to
pursue a college education and

Annually, we deliver the nativity
scene from the attic and place the
ceramic animals and figures upon our
piano so that we can adore them for the
month of December.
The nativity scene was a wedding gift,
27 years ago, from a bridesmaid who
madOe\' ery 'figure' Wth-dher- own two
hands and bundled them in newspaper
for safe-keeping (and to underscore
our chosen profession).
"Carefully," I said to the son when he
was a toddler as I explained how the
pieces were, virtually, irreplaceable.
He slowed down to satisfy me, turned
to place a donkey, and dropped a wise
man...right upon his wise head.
He screamed; I screamed; everybody
screamed.
The daughter studied us cautiously
to see this .drama unfold. It was one
of those moments when I wanted to
abandon all' I know to be right and
good, and instead to shout, scream and
curse--at the child and at the world.
But, apparently what I know to be
right and good didn't have a firm grasp
on me that day, and all I could do was sit
there and grieve, picking up the pieces
of the wise man's ceramic turban.
The son was horrified, volunteered
to leave home and find another family
because he was too stupid for this
one. I listened but said nothing as I
considered what to do next. When
I could finally breathe and think, I
gathered my wits among the pieces of
wise-man-turban.
"I think it's going to be fine," I said
to the son, but he was running upstairs
to gather his worldly belongings. I
sat in the floor and further assessed
the damage. Thanks to the God of
Christmas, I was confident the wise
man would be whole again. So I ran
upstairs too, stopped all the packing
and showed the son the wise man. He
was just temporarily decapitated, I
explained. It was a clean break around
his neck--I could fix that easily. The
three sections of turban came back
together to form a kingly look, and I
was confident the procedure could be
accomplished with ceramic glue and
minimized with touch-up paint.
"He just has a headache," I told the
toddler, "but he probably did the night


in wise men lose

ir heads
By SUSAN H. LINCOLN

he followed the star, too."
We decided to keep our family
together for yet another Christmas and
I think I saw the wise man smile, but it
was hard to tell if it was a grimace or a
smile.
"Your sister once broke Baby Jesus'
-oe," I told he ,-p., a.; W feis ed.i ,
set-up.
"I did not," she said, "he did that too."
"I did not," he said.
"You broke the toe, didn't you?" I
asked the sister.
"No, it was him. He dragged that Baby
Jesus all around the house when he was
a baby. Don't you remember?"
This is what happens when history
falls prey to revisionists, and even
though I'm taking a soy supplement,
I'm not sure I can trust my memory'
either. So if somebody breaks Baby
Jesus' toe, you really should write'it
down or you'll be accusing the wrong
person one day.
"Anyway," I said, "it doesn't matter.
The baby is fine; the toe is fine; the wise
man's head will be fine by tomorrow."
"I heard there weren't really three
wise men," said the daughter.
"Go away," said the son.
"Well, it's irrelevant," I said
confidently. "It doesn't matter how
many there were. Paul Harvey says
Rutgers University is studying the plant
from which myrrh comes and it's been
found to kill cancer cells in laboratory
tests," I reported.
"No way," said the daughter.
"There's a lot more to a nativity scene
than meets the eye," I concluded. The
children scattered, and I left the whole
lot of animals and biblical characters
on top of the piano to keep watch upon
the house.
I like having them around at
Christmas, thinking about the hay
and straw, and the star which shone
so brightly. I even like the broken
baby toe, and the tri-sectioned, wise-
man turban for it makes me confident
that--like the Velveteen Rabbit--these
characters can be real.
If you let them.
But most importantly, it reminds me
that even wise men lose their heads,
but God can fix us all.

Know the Laws about

Burning in Florida

The Division of Forestry oversees all outdoor
burning for the State of Florida.
In most Florida counties, burning yard waste does not require a permit but
you must follow the regulations for your area. All other types of outdoor
burning such as agricultural, sitvicultural, land clearing and pile burns
require a burning authorization from the Division of Forestry. To obtain a
burning authorization or to find out more information on outdoor
~trnhng, please call the local Division of Forestry office in your area. You
may also find information on outdoor burning on our website
www.fl-dof.com under "Wlldland Fire."


What is Yard Waste?
Yard waste is vegetative debris
such as grass clippings, brush,
leaves, tree limbs, palm fronds,
etc., that are a result of yard
maintenance.
You may burn yard waste as
long as:
E0 you meet the required
setbacks and no local city or
county ordinances prohibit
burning,
0 the yard waste was
generated on your property
and it will fit in an 8-foot
diameter pile or non-
combustible container,
0 your fire is Ignited after 8:00
AM central time or 9.WO AM
eastern time and is
extinguished one hour
before sunset,
0 smoke is not a hazard or
nuisance.

Letters to the Editor


Main Street thanks supporters after Downtown Snowfest


Dear Editor:
Thanks to the citizens of Perry
for showing your support by
attending this year's Snowfest.


By supporting downtown
events you help Main Street
revitalize our downtown. We
express our sincere appreciation


'Some kids excel no


matter what they wear'


GANG
Continued from page 2
keeping our young black males
out of prison. Again my article
was clear and to the point about
stereotyping our young people
(all races), and yes I still believe
that we have some brilliant
young minds in Taylor County
who wear .everil different hair
and clothing styles.
In closing, read my article
carefully and try to comprehend
prior to making false claims
about what I support or don't
support. I have no need to
speak with you on the subject
however, if you feelthe need
to speak to me, you call me. I
made my point and my number
is in the phone book under Mr.
Wayne Dunwoody!
Oh and by the way... in the
60s and 70s they didn't wear
baggy pants. Some of our kids
continue to excel and have


brilliant minds no matter what
they wear. Some just need a
little guides and support.

The joy of the holiday season
can be dampened for Floridians
struggling to pay their utility
bills. The Florida Public
Service Commission (PSC)
wants Floridians to know that
help may be available.
"The holiday season can be
stressful for those who are
worried about paying bills,"
Chairman Matthew M. Carter
II said.
"Many utility companies, as
well as local charities, have


programs available to assist
residents. Florida recently
received more than $100
million dollars from the federal
government for the Low-
Income Home Energy
Assistance Program
(LIHEAP), which helps low-
income residents pay their
utility bills."
The LIHEAP is a federal,
statewide program that helps
pay energy bills for households
with incomes below 150


Unemployment benefits"

extended up to 20 weeks
President George W. Bush recently signed the Unemployment
Compensation Extension Act of 2008, which increases the allowed
amount of extended Unemployment Compensation benefits from 13 to
20 weeks. The act also authorizes up to an additional 13 weeks of
"Second-Tier" benefits for states with a total unemployment rate at or
above six percent. Currently, Florida is one of several states authorized
for. "Second-Tier" benefits. Qualified Floridians currently receiving
benefits, and who subsequently exhaust their benefits, will receive the
extension automatically, and their weekly benefits amount will remain
the same. Individuals who do not currently have an active claim, but
may be eligible for the extension, will be mailed a noticelapplication
advising them of the availability of extended.,benefits. An application
may also be printed from www.fluidnow.com. The application should be
completed and mailed to: Agency for Workforce Innovation, Special
Claims, P. O. Drawer 5350, Tallahassee, FL 32314-5350.
