State cuts have local impact


Local government officials,
the Taylor County School
District and state workers are
all holding their breath as the
Florida Legislature prepares to
approve a plan to plug a
reported $2.3 billion deficit in
the state's budget.
Even if legislators vote on
the proposal today, as is
expected, the fight is likely to


continue, with Governor
Charlie Crist indicating he
might use his line-item veto to
reverse cuts in education
funding, while several groups
are already vowing to sue the
state over plans to take some
$700 million from the Lawton
Chiles Endowment to help
offset part of the deficit.
The sheer size of the cuts-the


budget document is 134
pages-has left local officials
still trying to determine how
much they will be affected.
City of Perry Manager Bob
Brown and County
Administrator Jack Brown both
said Tuesday they were still
examining the proposal.
Superintendent of Schools
Paul Dyal said Tuesday the cuts


in the plan are close to what
they had been told to expect,
although they were slightly
higher than predicted, 1.93
percent versus 2.0 percent. The
cuts will also be spread through
more categories than expected,
he said.
Across the state, education is
projected to lose approximately
$500 million, according to


reports.
While most of the cuts were
made on a state-wide basis,
some of the funding reductions
in the proposal were
specifically listed by county or
region, including:
$4,947, funding for

A reverse drug buy operation
by the Taylor County Joint
Task Force Thursday, Jan. 8,
netted four arrests.
Undercover police officers
posed as cocaine dealers in an
area known for drug activity on
Roberson Street for the
operation, Taylor County
Sheriffs Office Capt. Ron Rice
said.
"We arrested four people and
seized three vehicles. All of
those arrested were charged
with purchasing cocaine."
Taken into custody were:
Gene Russell, 47; Craig
Hathcock, 38; Shawnda Blair,
36; and Connie Brunson, 39.
Vehicles were seized from
Russell, Brunson and
Hathcock.
The reverse sting took place
around 3:30 p.m.

Tuesday, Jan. 6-members of
the task force made three
arrests following surveillance
in a high crime area off Warner

Tamela Sherpling, 55, was
traveling 'north on U.S. 19

the edge of the woods.
The vehicle, a :2007 four-

For re-enrollment


School district courts homeschoolers


Thanks to a recent
"promotion" campaign by the
Taylor County School District,
areas schools have 15 new
students this semester.
Superintendent of Schools
Paul Dyal said he instructed
staff to create a list of home-
schooled and virtual school
students in the county, which
ultimately included 228 area


children.
Next, school administrators
began calling parents, talking
with them about opportunities
available at the schools during
this semester and encouraging
them to re-enroll their children,
Dyal said.
He outlined the plan during a
talk at the Perry Rotary Club
last week.


"We are in competition,
whether you want to admit it or
not," Dyal said, reiterating
comments he made to staff
after taking office.
i When asked Tuesday, Dyal
said 15 students were returning
to the school system, some on a
full-time basis while others for
part of the day.
: "We are proud to have them


be part of the Taylor County
School System," Dyal said.
"Several other parents said
they would re-enter their
students next year."
With the district facing
budget shortfalls the past
several years, officials have
been eyeing ways to reverse the
trend of shrinking student
populations.


In October, the full time
equivalent (FTE) student
counts were 44 students below
projections, costing the district
$150,000 in funding.
According to Dyal, the
second FTE count, set for
February, has historically been
lower than the October

Signs marking 78 designated
birding sites along the 2,000-
mile Great Florida Birding
Trail began appearing in the
Panhandle in December. The
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) hopes to have all the
signs in place from Tallahassee
to Pensacola by the end of this
month.
The trail has four sites in

M.?tvl


Birding signs are
posted at Hickory Mound


Taylor County including the
Aucilla Sinks Trail, Hickory
Mound Impoundment Area,
Hagens Cove and the Tide
Swamp Unit (Dallus Creek).
The FWC will celebrate with
a sign-dedication event,
complete with birding tours by
FWC and U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service staff and
volunteers, at St. Marks
National Wildlife Refuge on
Jan. 17, beginning at 9 a.m. The
sign dedication will take place
at 1 p.m. at the Environmental
Education cabin next to the
Visitor Center.
The Great Florida Birding
Trail is a conservation program
initiated by the FWC in
response to the rapidly
expanding activity of bird
watching. More than 485
exceptional sites throughout
Florida have been chosen based
on their quality and compiled
into trail guides representing
four geographic regions.
The signs help bird watchers
find the designated sites.


Gateway sites at St. Marks
National Wildlife Refuge, near
Tallahassee, and Big Lagoon
State Park, in Pensacola,
provide extensive trail-related
resources, with loaner optics
available on site. They also act
as hubs of regional birding
information. Field guides in
English and Spanish also are
provided to enable visitors to
identify which birds they are
viewing. Additional materials
for beginning bird watchers
also are available at each
gateway site.

Editorial


Arbor Day is essential,



even in Taylor County


By BARRY TYE
Taylor/Dixie County Forester
Florida Division of Forestry
Florida Arbor Day falls on
the third Friday of January. This
year that happens to be the 16th.
Right in the middle of planting
season, as folks are trying to get
their pines in the ground for the
next rotation of growth we have
a celebration about planting
trees.
In Taylor County Arbor Day
almost seems unnecessary, a
day to celebrate planting trees
in an area that has more trees
then people and does not look
to change that anytime soon.
Isn't Arbor Day for folks who
live in big cities and only see a
tree when they go to the park,
something to make them feel
better about paving over so
much of their landscape for the
sake of convenience?
As hard as it may be to
imagine when you glance out
your window or drive down the
road in Taylor County Arbor
Day does have a purpose. This
countylives and dies by its trees.
From the big forks at. Foley to
the little landowners who sell
20 or 30 acres of trees every
20 years a good portion of the
people in Taylor County make
all or some of their income off


trees.
Even those folks who have
no direct connection to forestry
make money off of it,be it selling
loggers their lunch, or the boots
they wear, we all benefit from
the cash flow associated with
this business. From this point
of view the more trees we can
plant and maintain the better off
we all are. But that's economics,
and economics is a cold science,
it lacks the sense of the human
heart and the feelings that come
from there.
Arbor Day is about the feeling
you get wheq you walk through
a hushed hardwood, hammock
on a hunt. Think about the
sense of peace that comes from
being surrounded by greenery,
knowing that you have that
little piece of earth to yourself,
for that brief moment in time.
It's about the thrill you felt as
a child in th t tire swing in the
front yard, the one that hung
from the branch of that ancient
Live Oak with the Spanish
Moss hanging down like an old
man's beard. Think about sitting
in the shade of tree on the banks
of one of our rivers, spending
the day lazily dipping your line
in the water in a ceaseless quest
for fish, that's what Arbor Day
is about.


People in a city may need to
hear all those things about how
trees clean our drinking water,
keep the air around our houses
cooler, provide habitat for the
wildlife we hunt or watch, clear
the air of C02 and all the other
benefits that trees provide. They
might have to see a breakdown
of how having so many trees
can save a county so many
dollars by providing all these
things for free.
The difference between us
and them is that we don't need
to see all that, trees are a part of
our lives and always have been.
We grew up playing in ahd
around trees, we hunt in thdm
now, and most of us will be
buried somewhere around them.
For us Arbor Day isn't an
exercise in economics or cost
benefits, it's just being from
Taylor County and wanting to
make sure that our kids get the
same experiences in the forest
that we did.
So please, join the Florida
Division of Forestry and
the Perry District Office in
celebrating a way of life that is
fast disappearing from Florida.
You don't have to anything
really, just go stand in the shade
for a minute.

'Cost saving' measure may cost


state more money than it saves


Dear Editor:
.Over the next few weeks,
state lawmakers will be meeting
to find ways to resolve Florida's
lo0n budget deficit.
Ironically, one of the cuts being
considered--eliminating the
Medicaid Hospice benefit to
the state's most fragile citizens
--will actually end up costing
the state more money than it
currently spends.
Last year, Florida's hospices-
provided care for more than
16,000 Medicaid patients.
These patients were able to'
receive medical, emotional
and social Iervices in their
residence ( whether a private
home or nursing home) instead
of seeking care in hospitals and
emergency rooms, which is
much more expensive.
In a just-released survey
conducted by the Moran
Company for Florida Hospices
and Palliative Care (FHPC),
eliminating the Medicaid


Hospice benefit for our most
needy patients at the end of life
would have actually increased
Florida's healthcare costs by
$3.7 million in 2007 a'ionie. But
the real tragedy is the quality
of care that these vulnerable
and often lover-looked citizens
stand to lose. Hospice care is all
inclusive; every home visit by a
nurse, home health aide, family
support counselor, chaplain,
music therapist, physician--
and community volunteer is
covered by one daily fee. That
fee 'also covers prescription
drugs, medical equipment and
medical supplies associated
with the patient's hospice
diagnosis. Medicaid patients
living in a nursing home have
these additional services added
to their care as well for one
fixed fee.
Families facing a life-limiting
illness often face non-medical
crises as well, such as poverty,
homelessness and complex

family dynamics. Because
hospice care deals with the
emotional and practical needs
of the entire family, these
potentially crushing burdenspare
addressed by the hospice family
support counselor. Families
without the safety net of the
Medicaid hospice benefit will
be forced to turn to already
overwhelmed local social
service programs instead of one
- of the 42 Florida hospices.
Quality end-of-life health

Not only does eliminating the
Hospice Medicaid benefit not
make good financial sense, it
takes a terrible toll on human

Midweek Muddle



Have some stew; could


you


Myaunt so enjoys,serving a, good
story iwithChristmas lunch'. This year,'
although the date was Dec. 26 and the
meal was Brunswick stew, she recalled
a wedding from our shared past.
It happened when I asked a simple
question of my cousins, "Didn't you
just have an anniversary?"
That's all the encouragement
she needed to ask my young and
impressionable children, "Did you
ever hear the story about the time
your mother left her dress for Lee's
wedding?"
Well, listen my children and you shall
hear about the December wedding near
Troy, Ala., circa 1977 when I traveled
post haste without a dress for the
rehearsal dinner.
First, could you pass the salad please?
"I remembered my bridesmaid's
dress," I emphasized. "I simply forgot
about a dress for the rehearsal dinner....
and when I was driving there from my
40-hour-a-week job in the late afternoon
grayness of December, I realized it. I
stopped at the only dress shop that was
open in Troy at the time but I couldn't
find a thing...so I appeared at the hotel
where my family had gathered...
"In tears," said my aunt, as if the
children didn't know that I could cry.
"Yes, I was in tears," I said with
irritation. "I admit it. I was trying
very hard to get away on time and to
remember everything, but I didn't. And
I just cried."
"Well Susan," my mother said when
she saw me. Clearly, my khakis weren't
going to work for this formal after-
rehearsal.
"So I had a brand new red dress," said
my aunt. "Brand new. I said to your
mother, 'Well, see if this fits.' And of
course, it did. Brand new. I gave it to
her to wear, and then went next door
and asked my sister--the mother of the
groom--if she brought more than one
dress.
"Could you pass him some more
bread, please?" my aunt said, not
missing a beat. "Thank God your Aunt
Mary had another dress and it fit okay,


pass the story please?
By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
but it wasn't nearly-as-.nice-.as my new
-re<)dre3ss8...tthieTrie il 4ibrighilp'~nstu f
this occasion...brand new. Never been
worn."
"I think you've said that a couple of
times, Aunt Hazel," I noted aloud. She
didn't even glance in my direction.
"More tea, anyone? You need more tea,
don't you?"
"Your mother needed my shoes, too,
to match my new dress. They fit her
like a glove. So I gave her my dress, I
gave her my shoes, and I went begging
again. ...
"Nobody else wore my size, so: I
had to walk with my toes all cramped
up just to keep on somebody else's
shoes--I don't even remember who they
belonged to," she said.
This wedding from the 70s, as we
recalled it, just got more ridiculous
when one of the groomsmen arrived
--with his tuxedo, but without a dress
shirt to wear to the rehearsal dinner.
Every store in town closed at 5 p.m. and
it was too late to find a shirt. So the
groom's father gave him, the shirt he
had worn all day, and we all grimaced
in pain remembering how, aromatic it
surely was.
"I don't want anymore stew,". my
cousin said, "but where did you get this
recipe for this slaw?"
Thirty years later, however, when
we flip through the pictures of that
wedding and many more, we all just
look wonderful. There is great value
in traveling with your family like the
gypsies did. It's also important' to be
a compatible size with at least one
relative--preferably, one with good
taste.
"We have Apple Cake, Red Velvet
Cake, pralines and toffee for dessert,"
my aunt declared. "Get one of each."
And when you're traveling, never
leave home without an extra dress and
shoes that match. A string of pearls is
good too.
Could you pass the salad please?
Is that a balsamic vinaigrette
dressing?
Do you remember the time...

Community College is set to

Fund, as well as $30,593 in
Florida Lottery funds,
according to the proposed
budget.
The legislature is also
reportedly planning to put the
Florida Forever land
acquisition program on hold for
one- year, which could put
several county projects in
jeopardy, including the Fish
Market in Steinhatchee.
The county was awarded the
Florida Community Trust
(FCT) grant last year, and the
project is entering the appraisal
phase. Brown said Tuesday it
was unclear how the proposal
Should affect the project.
Last month, the county
closed on 44 acres in Keaton
Beach thanks to a $3 million
FCT grant.
In addition, commissioners
approved a new application last
week to seek funds to purchase

the former Ideal Marina
property in Steinhatchee.
County Grants Coordinator
Melody Cox was out of the
office Tuesday and could not be
reached for comment on how
the projects would be affected
by the state plan.
Overall, the legislature's plan
includes some $1.2 billion in
cuts, with the rest of the
shortfall made up by taking
money from various state trust
funds and reserves.
In addition to the $700
million from the Lawton Chiles
Endowment (which was
created from the state's tobacco
settlement to fund healthcare
for children and seniors), the
plan also calls for $400 million
to be taken from the Budget
Stabilization Fund (leaving
$250 million), $190 million
from the state housing trust
fund and some $300 million
from other trust funds which
have not yet been named.
The legislature started its
special session last week, but
didn't reach a deal until
negotiations held Sunday. By


statute, Wednesday is the
earliest a vote can be held.
Crist commented on the plan,
adding his concern over cuts in
merit pay for teachers as well
as the proposed suspension of
Florida Forever.
He also expressed
disappointment that the
legislature did not take
advantage of a deal he
brokered last year with the
Seminole Indian Tribe
authorizing Vegas-style slots
and blackjack tables at seven
resorts in the state. The Florida
Supreme Court nullified the
deal, stating it needed
legislative approval.
Reportedly, the deal would
have garnered the state $130
million so far.
Should legislators approve
the deal this week, it will keep
the state going through the end
of the current fiscal year: June
30.
When lawmakers return for
their regular session next
month, they will face a reported
$4 billion deficitin next year's
budget.

Carroll may be


new coach here


Taylor County High football
fans may know by the end of
the week whether celebrated
Madison Coach Frankie Carroll
has accepted the position as the
Bulldogs' next coach.
TCHS Principal Michael
Thompson said Carroll called
him Tuesday after meeting
twice with local officials last
week.
"We discussed the base salary
we could pay him. He said he
would talk it over with his wife
and get back with me by the end
of the week," Thompson said.
Carroll was interviewed by
Supt. Paul Dyal and Thompson
last Wednesday. He met again
Friday afternoon with Dyal,
Thompson and about a dozen
local boosters.
In Friday's meeting, Carroll
shared his philosophy of
coaching high school football
and what he expected out
of his players and the
community.
He said he actually lives
closer to Taylor County High
than Madison. Carroll resides
in Sirmans, which is just a few
miles north of Shady Grove.
"Friday's meeting
accomplished what we wanted


it to," Dyal said. "All those in
attendance felt like he would be
a good fit for our community."
The position became open
in December following Price
Harris' resignation as head
football coach and athletic
director. Harris compiled a 13-
28 record over four seasons.
Carroll has been one of
the most successful football
coaches in the state since he
took over at Madison in 2002.
Carroll has a record of 84-8-1
after six seasons at the Madison
helm. His teams have played
for the state title three times,
winning once.
This past season the Cowboys
lost to Jacksonville B6lles in
the Class 2A state semifinals.
Several of Madison's key
players missed the game due to
injuries.
Dyal, who has also served
as head coach at TCHS, said
numerous other coaches have
applied for the job but none
have been interviewed yet.
"I want to see how this turns
out before going to the pool of
applicants," he said.
Dyal said he and Thompson
want to have a new coach on
board by mid-Febuary.


.Baseball tryouts begin

next week at TCHS
Taylor County High baseball players began conditioning this
week in preparation for tryouts which begin Monday.
Next week's tryouts are for both varsity and junior varsity players.
The Bulldogs will be coached this season by Reggie Wentworth
who will be assisted by Richard Carr. Both are former varsity head
Coaches at TCHS.

R Newspapers offer a


al pulse on the community

V Since the dawn of the Internet era people have said that newspapers would follow in the ...
footsteps of dinosaurs and become extinct. However, over the last decade, newspapers have held
their own against rival online competitors and television media. This is likely because newspapers
offer advantages over the two, mainly in the form of an unsurpassed local connection. 0' 1 0

While the public may look to television or the Internet first for breaking news stories, most come .%A .'-: -
back to their local newspaper to read through the in-depth coverage of a specific event, largely "
because newspapers can devote the time and energy to relay a detailed story. And though man. I -
people are interested in national events, a large percentage of newspaper readers are looking for
the events that are unique to their communities. They find stories printed by local newspapers
w will offer the details and local flavor that other media outlets may not be able to provide. '

Local newspapers also serve as the ultimate community bulletin. Where else (besides
to\\n hall or at local houses of worship) can readers find such a complete listing of sales. -
recreational activities, movie times, police beat and the activities that govern the community ? .
Although the newest presidential tax plan is relevant, wouldn't a proposed local road repair
plan that would be detouring traffic around Main Street reported on by the paper be of more
immediate importance? This is information likely not obtained by broadcast television or
online.

Another area where newspapers offer an advantage is in the realm of recruitment
advertising and career services. Most people looking for a job prefer to stay within a close
radius to home, which would make seeking out jobs posted in a local paper a smart first step. While there may be thousands of listings offered by
online job sites, will they really be relevant to local readers and cover the areas in which you hope to be employed? Probably not. Therefore, time may
be wasted weeding through online postings unnecessarily. Your local newspaper can also be a good avenue for researching career-building workshops
or job fairs at nearby colleges.

I Perhaps the most viable proof that newspapers will continue to be useful to future generations is the fact that teenagers, one of the most influential
Demographics, do read the newspaper. According to a USA WEEKEND survey of more than 65,000 American teenagers, kids not only read them, but they
find them relevant and reliable. Newspapers remain a good source of information on sports, entertainment and recreation, which makes them appealing to
today's teenagers. And many teens admit that while they may turn to newspapers initially to find out game scores and more, many are also hooked on the
nexw s coverage provided and enjoy staying abreast of current events.


To make newspapers an invaluable part of the community, residents of cities and towns across the country can take
these steps:


Teachers can make current-events assignments an
integral part of classroom activities. Encourage students to
look to the newspaper and clip out stories of interest to report
on.

Newspaper publishers can take an active role in the
community by sponsoring charity events, educational
programs and hosting student interns.


Families can work together to not only foster knowledge
of local events gained through the newspaper, but to improve
reading, vocabulary and reading comprehension as well. Take
breaks from the computer, TV and video games and organize
an hour or two devoted to reading.

Take advantage of sales advertised in the paper and clip
coupons for area merchants. This will help you save money
and also boost the local economy.

Culpepper will be serving at 8 a.m.
First Presbyterian Church urges men in the community to mark
their calendars for Saturday, Feb. 7, at 8 a.m. for a Men's Breakfast.
"David Culpepper and his team of gourmet chefs will be
preparing their normal fantastic breakfast fare," said Dave Fraser
who is coordinating plans for the event.
John Sipple, former site manager at the Buckeye Foley Plant,
will be guest speaker. Since leaving Perry in 1993, John has been
self employed as a leadership and organizational development
consultant working with various industries, including Pulp and
Paper, for corporations throughout the country.
He has also been very active working with The Navigators, an
interdenominational, global Christian ininistry dedicated to
"advancing the Gospel of Jesus and His Kingdom into the nations."
He has traveled to many non-Christian countries outside the
United States. His next trip with the Navigators will be to Dubai,
where he will work with missionaries to various "closed" countries
in the Mideast in helping them start new businesses there.
For the breakfast, Sipple will share his insights into the values
and principles of business leadership through a talk entitled "The
Musings of a Raisin."
"This breakfast is open to the community," Fraser said, urging,
"invite your friends. Welcome John back to Perry and learn from
his vast experience and knowledge.
If you are interested in attending, please call the First
Presbyterian Church office at 584-3826 by Feb. 4 to make a
reservation. There will be no cost for this event, but there will be a
love offering.
Joint New Year revival this weekend

through Tuesday, Jan. 20. Services in Perry begin on Wednesday,

Anyone who wishes to attend in Mayo but doesn't have

seat on the van. Local churches are invited to attend and support
the revival with prayers and finances. You may reach Chester or
Carolyn Demps at 584-4702.

'Crabb Revival' sings here Friday
Northside Church of God, located at 1339 N. Byron Butler
Parkway, urges everyone to make plans to attend a performance by
the Crabb.Revival on Friday, Jan. 16, at 7 p.m.
Originally on stage as The Crabb Family, the musicians
disbanded in 2007, but a brother-and-sister duo from the family
couldn't ignore "a strong calling to sing," so they breathed life into
the music ministry and re-introduced it as the Crabb Revival.
A $7 donation at the door is requested for this evening of gospel
music "with outstanding vocals which take audiences to their feet
and then to their knees."
To contact Pastor Joshua Henson, please call (850) 843-4913.

Arbor Day celebrated worldwide


ARBOR DAY
Continued from page 1
More than 120 million
Americans live in a Tree City
USA community. To see a list of
Tree City USA communities, go
to www.arborday.org/programs/
treeCityUSA.cfm.
The first Arbor Day was
celebrated in Nebraska on April
10, 1872, thanks to a resolution
proposed by Nebraska City,
Neb., resident J. Sterling
Morton.
Morton, a civic leader,
agriculturist and former


newspaper editor, urged
Nebraskans to "set aside one
day to plant trees, both forest
and fruit." The tree-planting
holiday was so popular that
by 1920, more than 45 states
and U.S. territories annually
celebrated Arbor Day. Today,
Arbor Day is observed in all
50 states and in many countries
around the world.
The cabbage palmetto, sabal
palmetto, was adopted as
Florida's state tree in 1953. In
1970 the state legislature added
a palmetto tree to the state seal
instead of a cocoa palm. Known


for its many uses, including
medicine and food as well as
landscaping, the palm has the
ability to grow in almost any
soil. This palm is also the most
widely distributed palm in
Florida.
The Arbor Day Foundation
is a nonprofit conservation
organization of nearly one
million members, with a
mission to inspire people to
plant, nurture and celebrate
trees. More information on the
Foundation and its programs or
ways to celebrate Arbor Day can
be found at www.arborday.org.
