As visions of sugarplums
danced in their heads, second
graders at Perry Primary School
recently penned letters to Santa
Claus, and today you get to read
them too.
We forwarded the originals to
the North Pole in plenty of time
for the Jolly Old Man to read.
Now we hope the rest of you
enjoy reading and dreaming too,
as today's edition features letters
from students in participating
classes.
This is a long-standing
Christmas tradition which warms
our heart every year. We thank
Perry Primary for sharing with us,
and we wish you all a "Merry
Christmas." --The staff of Perry

Rode into path of oncoming vehicle


Bicyclist seriously injured in crash


A bicyclist was seriously
injured Saturday, Dec. 20,
when he was struck by a car as
he passed through the
intersection of Center and
Church streets around 9:15 a.m,
Jose Luis Andrades Sanabria,


30, failed to yield for a stop
sign at the intersection and
crossed into the path of a 2001
Toyota being driven by Nita
Jane Brantley, 42, of Perry,
according to a Perry Police
Department (PPD) report,


Brantley swerved into the
eastbound lane of Old Dixie
Highway in an attempt to miss
Sanabria.
However, the car struck the
bicycle and the rider landed on
the hood until it came to a final


stop on the south side of Old
Dixie.
Sanabria was taken to
Doctors' Memorial Hospital.
While no other identification
was found in his wallet,
Sanabria's name was obtained


by someone who could speak
Spanish.
Brantley was not injured in
the crash. No charges have
been filed in the case and the
investigation remains on-going.
PPD officials said.


$82,450 in county

funds distributed


here by United Way


The Taylor County
Commission allocates $82,450
each year toward the Taylor
County United Way Campaign,
which has a fund-raising goal
of $225,000.
Campaign Associate Glenda
Hamby addressed the county
commission last week,
updating the board on how
those funds were-used during
the 2007-08 fiscal year.
Taylor Senior Services
Center received $28,209 of the
funds.







Funds used to support
food programs, families
According to Director Ruby
Ellis, the funds allowed them to
"supplement an already over-
burdened program by
supplying 8,180 home
delivered meals to 52
homebound seniors."
In addition, they served 275
meals in the congregate dining
hall, equating to one meal per
day for one senior for the entire
fiscal year.
The Boys & Girls Club of
North Central Florida received
$29,200.
Interim director Lisa English
reported that the following
outcomes were a direct result
of the county's funding:
addressed graduation rate and
saw 100 percent of high school


seniors who attended the club
graduate; continued to serve 86
of Steinhatchee School's 125
students in after-school club
activities; and surpassed the
original goal of serving 320
youth by serving almost 500

Glad tidings
Merry carolers from Jack & Jill Early Childhood and Education Center fa-la-la'ed
their way around the downtown square last week. Their rendition "Jingle Bells" was
accompanied by real jingle bells ringing and a loud and enthusiastic finish. They are
shown gathered around the Christmas tree at Capital City Bank.


Good news keeps coming


for United Way


The good news is
continuing to come out of
Taylor County's United Way
Campaign.
On the heels of news that
employees at BIS Frucon
Industrial Services, Inc., have
almost doubled their pledges
for last year, Buckeye
announced that employees at
the Taylor County plant have
exceeded their 2008 United
Way Campaign goal and
expect to raise additional
funds prior to ending the
drive in January.
According to plant
campaign chairperson
Michele Curtis, employee
and company commitments
now exceed $134,000, the


Renovations are underway at the Taylor Senior Citizens Center (formerly Gladys
Morse Elementary School). Once the work is completed, the cafetorium will have
a dropped ceiling, a pair of handicap bathrooms as well as new flooring, carpeting
and paint. The project was funded through a grant from the State of Florida.

A special gift for


Taylor's seniors

The Taylor Senior Citizens Center (TSSC) is getting a holiday
facelift thanks to funds provided by the State of Florida.
"With the onset of Christmas and the usual seasonal celebrations
afoot, it is entirely possible that you might not be aware of the
exciting 'goings on' at the Taylor Senior Citizens Center," said
Director Ruby Ellis.
The center is located at the former Gladys Morse Elementary
School (800 W. Ash Street).
"Hundreds of you know this facility as the Gladys Morse
Elementary School, built in 1958 but not in service as a school
since 2002. The new Taylor Senior Citizens Center has been in
service there since July 2005.
"The facility provides a balanced nutritional meal five days per
week and offers a meaningful social environment for senior
citizens who are 60-plus years of age," she said. "And, if you
aren't one of our more than 60 senior citizens who take advantage
of the programs offered by the center, then you might not be aware
that we are undergoing a facelift, of sorts."
While the exterior might not look much different, the inside of
the former school "cafetorium" is getting a new look.
"Gone is the stage where many a student gave his or her very

Did you know? :


If, like the famed singer Bing
Crosby, you've been dreaming
of a white Christmas, you might
want to move to a handful of
cities that seem to be able to
provide just that year after year.
In a report on the probability
of a white Christmas in the
United States by meteorologists
Neal Lott, Tom Ross and
Matthew Sittel of the National
Climatic Data Center (NCDC),
five locations had a perfect track
record with respect to providing
the white stuff on December 25.
The study examined climate
:o,:rm nJ _.19d,61 to 19W.
Oer ithlit" period, the dcifie'
of Marquette and Sault Ste.
Marie in Michigan, Hibbing
and International Falls in
Minnesota, and Stampede Pass
in Washington all produced a
white Christmas every year.
Not surprisingly, those who
live further north have a much
greater chance of experiencing
a white Christmas, but not
as much as one might think.
For example, films are fond
of depicting New York City
as a place that frequently sees
a white Christmas. However,
according to theaforementioned


study, New York has just a
10 percent chance of a white
Christmas.
To put that into better
perspective, the city of
Richmond, Virginia, has a 7
percent chance of having a white
Christmas. Despite the fact that
Richmond is in the southern
United States, its chances of
having a white Christmas are
not all that much different from
New York's.
What's more, Richmond


and Seattle share th
probability, despite the
Seattle is located in the
Northwest, a region n
quick to associate with
weather.
Perhaps most surprise
the likelihood of F
Arizona, having a
Christmas. With a pr

Didyouknow?
Though it might seem as
though it's been around forever,
the beloved holiday song "Frosty
the Snowman" actually wasn't
produced until 1950.
Written by Jack Rollins and
Steve Nelson, the song was first
recorded by legendary country
singer Gene Autry and the Cass
County Boys.
Once they finished penning
the now classic Christmas tune,
Rollins and Nelson shipped the
lyrics to Autry, who just a year
earlier achieved great success
with another holiday favorite,
"Rudolph the Red Nosed
Reindeer."
While Autry's version
remained the most successful,
and arguably most recognizable,
version of "Frosty" for many
years, its success in terms of
charting was actually outdone
just a year ago.
The peak position for Autry's
original version on the U.S.
Pop Singles chart was #7 back
in 1950. However, the 2007
rendition by former American
Idol participant Kimberly Locke
reached #1 on the Billboard U.S.
Hot Adult Contemporary chart.


at the north pole santa is it snowing? I love
my family very much. I have been good. I
have been helping my family and friends. I
would like a trampoline because it is fun to
jump. I would like a 4-wheeler.
Love your friend Marissa
Dear, santa,
I like Roudolph the Red Nose rain deer.


How are you? I will leave cookies and milk
for you. I have tried to be good but its
hard. I try my best every day. How are you
and Mrs Clause? Do you got the sack of
toys? How do you get trough houses with
out chiminies? You are very nice you know?
What do rain deers eat? I want a video
game that you don't hook up because they


are neat and a sweet sweet puppy not a
fake one a real one because my little dog
don't have a friend to play with and a real
spieker phone that you can sing in. Merry
Christmas.
Love Kara Lynn Dixon

The commission agreed this
fall to provide the same level of

current year.
This makes the third year the

own rendition of 'T'was the Night Before Christmas,' or walked
across the stage for an elementary class graduation ceremony,"
Ellis said. "Also missing is the monstrous air conditioning unit that
not only took up a massive amount of floor space but was so noisy
that anyone speaking below a shout would not have been heard."
In their places will' be two handicap accessible restrooms, a
business conference center and a case manager's office. The
finished space will be centrally heated and cooled, have better
acoustics thanks to a lowered ceiling, along with new flooring,
carpeting and paint.
In order to facilitate this facelift, the seniors have been
temporarily relocated to two of the former classrooms just behind
the administrative offices, "where they have been enjoying hot,
delicious lunches prepared by our local Doctors' Memorial
Hospital dietary staff," she said.
"They have continued with their weekly bingo games, the ever
popular holey board game, geriatric exercise classes and the
marathon Uno game that goes on long after the last plate has been
cleared away," Ellis said.
The renovation, which began in early. November, was made
possible by an award, extended to TSCC by the State of Florida.
Riley Palmer Construction Company of Tallahassee was chosen by
the board of directors to undertake the project, which is
progressing as planned under the guidance of Project Manager
Rick Anderson.
"With a projected completion date of late February, we are
preparing for a ceremonious celebration, complete with an official
ribbon cutting," Ellis said. "We will be expanding our activities in
2009 and we are looking for volunteers to conduct workshops' and
instructional classes forour senior pipukla ,on i :'- ..' -
Those wishing to be a part of a "new and exciting era for the
Taylor Senior Citizens Center" are asked to call 584-4924 and
speak with Ellis or other staff members.
Taylor Senior Citizens Center, Inc., is a United Way Agency, and
is sponsored by the Area Agency on Aging in Northern Florida and
the State of Florida Department of Elder Affairs.

Helping Hands volunteer Nancy Turner-presented a program on responsible pet ownership to sixth grade
classes at Taylor County Middle School.


Helping Hands presents pet care 101


The sixth grade science
classes of Judy Neal and Tracey
Hill at Taylor County Middle
School were treated to an
informational program on
animal care, sponsored by
Helping Hands of the Shelter
(HHotS).
HHotS is a local non-profit
animal aid organization whose,
goals are to provide education,
increase awareness about
local animal problems, and
ultimately increase adoption
rates at the shelter.


HHotS volunteer Nancy
Turner visited the classes,
showed a film on responsible,
loving pet ownership and
discussed "the desperate need
to spay and neuter our pets."
Citing statistics of the eight
million unwanted dogs and cats
euthanized in the U.S. yearly,
as well as the high
euthanization rates in Perry,
Turner asked students to help
spread the word to their friends
and families about spaying and
neutering pets.


And the winner is...
Perry Primary School set up a Christmas Bazaar so students could
shop for gifts for their loved ones for the holidays. Children had an
opportunity to purchase a chance for a drawing to win a giant Christmas
;stocking for $1. The winning ticketwas drawn oFrida-y, ,Di.'19, before
the Christmas break. Nicholas McCranie, a second grader in Mrs.
Demps' classroom, was the winner. He is shown above with Principal
George Clayton and Assistant Principal Pam Padgett.

She also asked that students
consider adopting a pet from
the local shelter rather than
purchasing a pet from a breeder
or store.
She cautioned that before
anyone gets a new pet, one
should seriously consider if
he/she can provide a good,
loving home.
Things to consider include:
the high cost of dog/cat food,
the cost of spay/neuter and
annual vaccinations, the ability
to keep the pet in a safe


enclosure and off the street, as
well as the ability to spend time
training and exercising one's
pet.
HHotS plans more
educational programs in the
future.
In you are interested in
having a volunteer come to
your classroom or organization,
or if you are interested in
helping with your time or
donations, please contact
Babbs Radcliff at 584-4460 or
Turner at 584-4209.

Gabe Chaney Grubbs
Gabe Chaney Grubbs, infant son of Garrett and Traci Grubbs.
of Lee County, died Saturday, Dec. 20, 2008, at Medical College
of Georgia in Augusta.
The funeral service will be held at 1 p.m. Monday at Sherwood
Baptist Church with the Dr. Michael C. Catt and the Rev. John
Spencer officiating. A private interment service will follow at
Crown Hill Cemetery.
By the thousands, people have prayed for Gabe. The saints of
God have interceded for his little life and prayed for him when
he could not pray for himself. We have sensed the mercies of
God and the presence of God's spirit in these difficult days.
God's ways are mysterious and we cannot explain all that
He does. We live in a fallen world, but our hope is in our Lord
who promised us victory over death, hell and the grave. As
Charles Sprugeon said, "When you can't trace God's hand, trust
His heart." We know that Gabe is in the hands of our loving
Heavenly Father who has welcomed our son into his eternal
home.
We gave Gabe to God before he was ever born. Every day of
his life belonged to our loving Lord. His life has been a witness
to many in the hospital and around the country.
God has seen us through these days. He sustained Gabe when
many gave up hope. We believe God has and had a purpose for
his short life. His precious life marked us as a family, as friends
and as a church.
One little life reminded us that most of what we worry and
fret about does not matter. What matters is to love God and love
others. At Thanksgiving, we celebrated his birth. As we look
to Christmas, we celebrate the birth of our Lord who gives us
hope that we will see Gabe again in Heaven. We can't wait to
see our little boy running down the streets of gold. That is God's
promise and that is our hope. This is not goodbye--this is, Gabe,
son we'll see you again.
In addition to his parents, Gabe is survived by his maternal
grandparents. Bob and Terry Chaney of Carmel, Ind.: paternal
grandparents, Ralph and Teresa Grubbs of Steinhatchee, Fla.;
maternal great grandparents, Jack and Billie Ward of Fishers,
Ind.; paternal great grandparents, Willie and Lucille Glow of
Leesburg and Austin and Melissa Grubbs of Leesburg; uncles,
Derek Grubbs of Tallahassee, Fla.; Dean Grubbs of Sopchoppy,
Fla., and Austin Grubbs and his wife Melissa of Lee County:
aunts, Leah Glow and her husband Larry of Albany, Debbie
Glow and her husband Mark of Albany, Lynne King and her
husband Jim of Alexandria, Ind., Peggy Wise and her husband
Rick of Pendleton, Ind., and Kathy Ray and her husband Bruce
of Pendleton, Ind.; cousins, Brandon Glow, David Glow. Taylor
Glow, Samuel Grubbs, D.J. Grubbs Dionna Grubbs, Tyler,
Evan, Jordan Wise, Ashley Ray, Austin Ray, Tina Stanley, Dan
Stanley, Bryan King, Monica King, Lee Fisher, and Dennis
Fisher.
Those desiring may make memorial contributions to Future
Generations, c/o Sherwood Baptist Church, 2201 Whispering
Pines Road, Albany, GA 31707.
You may sign the online guestbook and share your own
special thoughts and memories with Gabe's family by visiting

Editorial


B-2 Taco Times
December 24, 2008


Dear Editor:
Often times our local
authorities do things that go
untold and a lot of the time
negative news is talked back and
to each other. I'd like to share a
"good story" that happened last
week.
I was working extended hours
at the mill--in the middle of the
night, of course--and my wife
called me and told me someone
was trying to break into our
house. She had heard someone
trying to open the screen door
to get access to our front door.
My car was in the driveway, but
my truck was with me at work,
so it could have been taken to
believe no one was at home.
My wife was scared to death
to say the least. I reminded her


of our artillery in the house and
to use it if anyone gained entry
into the house and I would call
for help. God help anyone
that broke in on her when she
is scared. I called 911 and
explained to the dispatcher what
was going on. She asked for
my telephone number at work
and for my home phone. She
called my wife and talked with
her until the deputies arrived.
You don't realize how much
that calmed her down. In just
an instant, there was a couple
of deputies at my house to first
make sure she was ok, then start
searching for the one that was
trying to break into our home.
Deputy Rusty Davis talked
with her, reassured her and was
so very helpful. Deputy Davis,


I don't know you by name, but
would like to shake your hand
and tell you "job well done!"
He also arranged for regular
patrols the following night
because I would be working
then as well. You see, my wife
has epilepsy, and the least bit of
scare or discomfort could have
caused her to go into a grand
mall seizure. I am satisfied
that by their kind wofds, quick
response and concern, you
saved her from hurting herself
as well.
Sheriff Williams,
congratulations, you have a
very good force of deputies
serving our county and my wife
and I do appreciate it.
Regards
Chuck Edwards

It was on Dec. 23, 1992, that a horse
and the seven-year-old daughter had a
misunderstanding.
That left the daughter with an arm
broken at the elbow, and her parents
with broken hearts. From the farm,
to Doctors' Memorial Hospital we
went. Then on to Tallahassee where
the orthopedic clinic got involved and
eventually shuttled us to Tallahassee
Community Hospital. It was a like a
medical facility tour.
At 6:15, 6:20, 6:25, 6:30, 6:40 and
6:47 p.m. in the surgical waiting room,
the clock ticked slowly for the husband
and for me. We badly needed good
tidings of great joy.
In his white scrubs, the orthopedic
surgeon might have resembled an
angel, especially when he delivered
the "surgery was successful" news, the
good tidings we wanted to hear.
The good news, however, was
tempered only by the doctor's orders,
"We'll need to watch her, at least for
24 hours." After we were delivered to
a private room, the husband headed
"lome"" "t �art- for- 'the ' then-inra'jn
brother of the patient, while I prepared
to spend a long winter's night on a bed
which must have been rejected by a
Salvation Army shelter.
It gave me a new appreciation for
those who sit at the bedside of loved
ones. The daughter slept restlessly and
moaned, trying to get comfortable with
her arm suspended 12 inches above
her.
Suddenly the presents I hadn't
wrapped didn't matter. Even the gifts
I had not purchased yet didn't matter.
Very little mattered. Except restored
health.
That's when a large, commanding
man, dressed in red and white, entered
the room. He was the most authentic
Santa Claus ever sighted south of the
North Pole.
"Ho, ho, ho," he said rather loudly
among hospital rooms which are
usually anxiously quiet. I managed the
first smile I could remember in hours.
Instead of speaking, I watched in awe.
His beard was real--it wasn't one of
those fake ones. His suit fit perfectly;
there was no room for pillows. His
cheeks were rosy like cherries; I saw
no make-up. His eyebrows had that
perfect Merle Norman arch that Santa
Claus helpers long for, and they were
a most becoming shade of silver white.
"This is the real Santa Claus," I
thought to myself.
"Little girl, what happened?" he asked
of my daughter. But the anesthesia was
doing its work and she didn't hear. Oh,
how I wanted her to hear. I tried to
wake her. Gently.
"Oh, she needs her rest," he said,
patting her "good" arm, and inquiring
about her intended departure. He left
some candy, a bookmark and a few
other surprises. He patted her mother
on the back, saw the tears and assured
her, "She'll be all right, now," he said
in a soothing tone, "and you will be,
too."
I think I trusted him almost as much
as I did the doctors. I wanted to ask
him to stay; to have a glass of water or

a Kleenex, which was all I had to offer
on Dec. 23, 1992. The fudge was at
home where the stockings were hung
with care, in hopes that we would soon
be there.
Then the most remarkable thing
happened. The jolly old man turned to
leave, looked me straight in the eyes
where I rested, mesmerized by his
gaze which I could neither escape nor
skeptically discount as a fine make-
up job. "She'll get the bike she asked
for," he said to me. He nodded at the
sleeping daughter, and winked in my
direction.
Quietly, he said to me, "Merry
Christmas to all, and to all a good
night."
As the door shut, I looked around
the room where there was no one else
with whom to share my amazement.
I looked down the hallway; he was
visible neither to the right nor the left.
But I had to ask: "How did he know she
wanted a bicycle?"
I rang for the nurse. I knew it wasn't
logical, but I needed someone..anyone.
T\o nu'tr-"_s'-in-'ute scampered rin.
"Is she okay?" they asked, one reaching
.for her wrist to check her pulse and the
other checking the monitor.
"Oh, she's fine," I said, like a terribly
distracted woman. "How did he know
she wanted a bicycle?" I asked them,
pointing toward the door.
"Santa Claus?" they asked. "Why, you
probably told him," they suggested
in calming voices as they patted the
patient. ',
"No, I didn't," I said demonstratively.
"And she never woke up to.'tell him
anything. Did you tell him?"
"We didn't know," one said
defensively, while the other suggested
that I'd better get some rest. Then
they left as quickly as they came,
returning every two hours to check her
temperature, the swelling, her blood
pressure.
Since I couldn't sleep soundly, I
spent a lot of time wondering about
the people in the rooms around us
who might not go home the next day,
hoping (no, praying) that it wouldn't
happen to us. All the while, I wondered,
"Who was that bearded man?" and also,
"Are these clothes permanently fused
to my body?"
On Christmas Eve at 5 p.m., we were
discharged, as nurses exchanged gifts
in the nurses' station and the hospital
corridors emptied. "Going home"...
was very possibly the most wonderful
Christmas present anyone of us had
ever been given.
The next morning, though the
daughter viewed the festivities from
her couch of confinement, a new bicycle
appeared on the hearth. I told her the
story of the night in the hospital, and
what the jolly old man had promised. "It
was one of the most magical moments
I've ever had," I told her, and surely it
was.
I'll never forget the face of Santa
Claus who found me in room 126.
And you count me among that group
of people who, at age 93, declare with
faith and certainly, "I believe."
For I do.

B-3 Taco Times December 24, 2008


By SHONA A. WHIDDON
I had an emergency
appendectomy on 'Nov. 19.
That was the last day we saw
our family cat, Princess.
During our prayer time
weeks later, Haley Jones
..(Coleen Agner's daughter)
asked for prayers'to find a
home for a cat that she and Ally
and Maggie Mall found in her
Grandma's (Toni Everett)
neighborhood. She started
describing the cat to me and it
sounded a lot like Princess. Of
course, it couldn't be her. Toni
lives almost four miles away
from me, and the last time
anyone saw Princess was
almost a month ago.
The more she described the
cat, the more I wondered. I
called my husband and had him
e-mail me a picture of Princess.


Haley looked at it and said,
"That's her." I sent her down to
get Ally out of class. Ally said,
"That is definitely the cat."
Then I sent for Maggie and she
said, "That is the cat."
I called Toni at home. I asked
her about* all of the distinct
markings that Princess has and
she said "yes" to everyone of
them. Could this really be
Princess? I e-mailed the
pictures to Toni. She called me
back and jokingly said, "Is
there a reward for this cat? This
is your cat!"
Toni took the cat to Dr.
Fletcher's office. I called down
there and asked them to check
to see if she had a scar where
they had spayed her. I was
holding my breath, crossing my
fingers and praying. She came
back on the phone and said,


"We shaved her and there is a
spay scar." I again described all
of the markings to her, and she
confirmed every one of them.
"This is your kitty!" she said.
All of my students (at
Aucilla Christian Academy)
cheered. Haley was so excited
that she wanted to tell Kate. We
walked down to Kate's
classroom and Kate began to
sob when she heard the news!
She was so happy!
It's so hard to believe.
Princess had been gone for
almost a month. For her to be
found that far away from home,
after the prayers of a student in
my class, and out of all the
houses in Perry!?!?! What a
miracle!
God cares about us that
much...that he even cares about
my cat!!

PPS invites you to 'Just Read'


Perry Primary School has
submitted an entry for the "Just
Read" Florida Public Service
Announcement (PSA) contest.
Florida school sites were
asked to submit a 26 second
PSA to promote and celebrate
literacy in Florida.
Perry Primary second
graders explored the topic
"Why Do You Read?" with


their teachers and wrote about
it in language arts. Students

/ Just Read,
Florida!


were then selected to be
videotaped in various locations
throughout the school as they


explained why they read. The
selections were then edited into
the PSA.
The winning PSA's (three
from elementary schools, three
from middle schools and three
from high schools) will been
shown on the Florida
Knowledge Network along
with the school sites receiving
a prize.

Traveling for holidays? Save


time & money by calling 511


This holiday season the
Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT)
reminds drivers to call its free
511 system for roadway
information to avoid traffic and
get to their destination safer.
The free 511 phone number
and FL511.com Web site
feature real-time roadway
information on all of Florida's
interstates and Florida's
Turnpike.
Holiday travelers can save
time and money by planning
trips ahead of time and
registering personalized travel
and alternate routes for free on
the 511 Web site.
The statewide Web site
allows users to create up to 10
personalized travel routes they
can then access immediately
when calling 511 to hear
roadway updates. The system
lets users create custom names,
such as "Home" and "Back Up
Home," so with one voice


prompt, callers can get
information on their entire
route.
The 511 system uses Caller
ID technology to recognize the
caller and provides the option
to hear traffic details for the


511 Tips
* Speak as clearly as possible
and minimize any background noise--
including radios and open windows.
* Say "other parts of the state" to
transfer among Florida's regional 511
services.
* Say"help"for instructions.
* Say "next," "previous," "stop" or
"repeat" to navigate through the phone
menus more quickly.
* Say"main menu"at any time to start
over.
* Say"feedback" to report congestion
not already mentioned on 511.
* Interrupt 511 at any time if you
already know your selection.


programmed trips first. If there
is an incident on one road,
drivers can change routes
before getting caught in
congestion.
511 is also the three-digit
phone number for Florida's
airports and seaports. Travelers
flying out of the state can call
511 and transfer to their
regional airport to hear flight
information for free.
The system is a free resource
from FDOT that helps
manage congestion, reduce
emissions and increase safety
on all interstate highways,
many major metropolitan
roadways and Florida's
Turnpike.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol (FHP),
knowing of congestion or
delays can help .prevent
crashes.
Calls to 511 are free,
however cell phone minute
charges may apply.
