Schools lose another $400,000


New Year

Baby '09:

It's a boy!

Kelli Brannen had just
watched the ball drop in Times
Square New Year's Eve when
her husband, Yancie, and
family decided it was time for
her to get to the hospital--her
contractions were just two
minutes apart.
Less than 12 hours later, the
Perry couple welcomed their
first child, a boy, at 11;52 a.m.,
at Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital.
Bain Yancie Brannen
weighed seven pounds, three
ounces and was 20 inches long.
His timely arrival earned him
the honor of being Taylor
County's first baby of 2009.
"Everyone kept telling me
that he was the first baby for
Taylor County, but I just wasn't
sure," Kelli said Monday,
"When we got to the hospital
that night, we heard that three
other people from Perry had
been sent home because they
weren't ready to deliver.
"Luckily we were already in
Tallahassee to celebrate the
new year with my family, so it
wasn't a long trip for us to the
hospital.".
Welcoming the new arrival
are paternal grandparents Jim
Brannen and Chris Cannon,
both of Perry, and maternal
grandparents Charlie and
Rachel Hunter of Tallahassee.


The budget reductions
approved last week by the
Florida Legislature cost the
Taylor County School District
some $400,000 in state
funding.
Additionally, legislation
passed along with the budget
cuts will now require school
districts to maintain a three-
percent reserve for their general
funds, Superintendent of
Schools Paul Dyal said.



1,000


without



power

The Monday afternoon
power outage which affected
more than 1,000 Progress
Energy customers-including
several large retailers and
restaurants-was due to a
"feeder issue," according to a
customer spokesperson.
The outage began around
1:15 p.m., affecting a large
area including four shopping
centers and many. of the
restaurants on U.S. 19.
Personnel from the Perry
Police Department and the
Florida Highway Patrol
directed traffic at several major
stop lights, including at the
intersection of U.S. 19 and
Jefferson Street.
Power was restored around
2:30.
According to Progress
'-* Please see page 6


Chamber


Previously, the Florida
Department' of Education
(DOE) recommended districts
keep a two-percent reserve. The
new requirement will be
effective this school year and
DOE will be able to take over
recovery efforts at districts
which fall below a two-percent
reserve.
The Taylor district has been
attempting to return its general
fund to a positive balance after


Several years in the red. With
the new legislation, the district
will now be required to end the
current year with a three-
percent reserve, or a positive
general fund balance of
$698,000.
The news out of Tallahassee
wasn't all bad, however,
according to district officials.
Finance Director Vickie
McManus told school board
members last week that two


changes in how the district can
use its two-mill funds, which
are collected for capital
projects, could save the district
some $150,000 in its general
fund.
The first change allows
districts to use additional two-
mill funds to pay for their
property casualty insurance
rather than using general fund
money. The second will allow
districts to charge some


administration software
purchases to the two-mill fund.
According to McManus's
financial update last
week-which included figures
through December-the district
is on track to be approximately
$145,000 short of having a
three-percent reserve.
Through December, the
district had spent $9.7 million

Court

By MARK VIOLA
Staff writer
Judge Gregory S. Parker,
who was elected last August to
fill the seat of retiring Circuit
Judge John W. Peach, was
sworn into office Friday


"We will also recognize special
volunteers as well as the
'Chamber Member of the
Year'.
Renowned motivational
speaker and mentalist Keith
Matheny will be the featured
entertainment.
"Our guest speaker will
deliver a motivating and
fascinating presentation that
will take you to the edge of the
impossible. Keith is a mentalist
and a motivating entertainer
who will capture your


imagination as he reveals your
thoughts, predicts answers to
math problems before they are
created and describes objects
held by audience members
while he is heavily blindfolded.
He will mix his talent as a
mentalist with messages
focusing on topics such as
achieving excellence,
overcoming the impossible and
developing a winning attitude.
His show is baffling and mind-
boggling as well as hilarious
and packed with audience


participation. He will share
with the audience the keys that
help unlock imaginary
boundaries and mysteries of the
human mind. Join us for this
unique and exciting event,"
Taylor said. "Tickets are on sale
now at the chamber and as
every year, they sell out fast, so
get yours today because seating
is limited."
Tickets are $45 per person or
$400 for a table of 10. For
more information, please call

n session for Judge Parker


afternoon during investiture
ceremonies held at the historic
Madison County Courthouse.
All of the sitting county and
circuit judges of the Third
Judicial Circuit, as well as
family, friends and officials


from around the area filled the
courtroom.
Parker had the seat of honor,
surrounded by both sitting and
retired judges.
The ceremony began with an
invocation from the Rev. James


After retired Circuit Judge John W. Peach administered the oath of office to
Gregory S. Parker during investiture ceremonies held Friday, Parker was met
with a standing ovation from the gathered officials, which included Circuit Judges
H. Wetzel Blair and James R. Bean, Assistant State Attorney Dave Phelps and
Parker's wife, Pam Rigoni Parker.


Taylor from First United
Methodist Church of Perry, and.
a patriotic medley from Audre
Washington.
Madison County Clerk of
Court Tim Sanders gave a
history of the Madison County
Courthouse, which was built in
1913 after the previous
structure caught fire and burned
the previous year.
Sanders also pointed out that
it has been 42 years since
Parker's seat was situated in
Madison.
"Judge Parker, we welcome
you to Madison County and
most especially we welcome
you to the Madison County,"
Sanders said.
The event had its moments of
levity as well, with Assistant
State Attorney David Phelps
sharing several humorous
anecdotes from Parker's
career.
One story Phelps told was
about a time when Parker, who
was representing a tree planter,
entered an entire pine tree--
some 18 feet in length--into
evidence.
Continuing with the
ceremony, Circuit Judge
Stephen "Buddy" Murphy
presented Parker with his
Bible. The Bible has been in


Parker's family since 1940 and
was his grandfather's, who was
a preacher in Mayo.
Peach then administrated the
oath of office, after which the
assembled judges rose in
applause, followed shortly by
the entire room.
Third Judicial Circuit Bar
Association President Todd
Hingston presented Parker with
his robe and with help from his
family, Parker donned the
robe.
After Circuit Court Judge
Leandra Johnson gave Parker
his nameplate and Circuit
Judge James R. Bean presented
him with a framed copy of the
code of judicial conduct, it was
Parker's turn to take the
podium, where he met with
another standing ovation.
Parker said he had wanted to
be a lawyer since he was 11
years old and saw Perry Mason
on television.
He recalled that on a trip to
Madison with his grandparents,
he saw the courthouse
and proclaimed that one day
he would work in the
building.
Now, he is.
"It's an honor. It's a privilege.
God bless you all for coming,"
he said.

"It teaches entrepreneurship," she said, noting
that students must work hard to be in the

In its eighth year, Blue Friday places students
in groups and focuses on teamwork and decision-
making.
"They select from a list of projects which I
compile, and then they must create items to sell."
she said. "They learn about logo design and do
advertising--even producing a commercial.
"On Blue Friday, the whole school can

for a price which usually ranges from 50 cents to
$5."

A-4 Taco Times January 21,2009


Top-seeded Lady'Dogs


set to defend district title


The Taylor County High girls
soccer team began a new season
in 2008 with a desire to improve
upon the success of past TCHS
teams. To do that they'd have
to rebuild a team that had lost
some major talent in critical
skill positions, along with a new
head coach to put all the pieces
together.
After 17 games this season,
it looks as if the team hasn't
skipped a beat. The team's
current record is 12-6, 6-0 in*
district.
The undefeated district record
gives the Lady Bulldogs the
top seed going into the district
playoffs which started Tuesday
night against Madison County.
The winner of that game will
play the winner of Tuesday's
Florida High vs. Hamilton
County contest on Thursday
in the district title game being
played here at 7 p.m. at Dorsett
Stadium. Both teams playing in
the district championship game
will secure spots in the state
playoffs.
The loss last year of 6 starters
including Katie Cooper, who
went on to play division I
soccer at Troy University,
and Courteney Mincy, who
transferred to Pensacola, forced
some new players to step up and
fill the gaps.
Last year's leading scorer
in the Big Bend, sophomore
Savannah Cantrell, is again in
the top 5 in scoring. This year
her role has changed from being
up top and attacking the goal to
a midfielder who helps create
attacking opportunities.
This season, Cantrell has a
team-leading 19 assists along
with 23 goals. Freshman
sensation Macy Gregory has
been on the receiving end of a
lot of Cantrell's passes.
Gregory leads the team in
goals with 25 and is second in
assists with 12.


"Macy went and played
competitive soccer last year
before coming to high school
and it has really helped her
game," said Head Coach Dara
Nix. "Macy has shown this year
that she can play with anybody."
Gregory isn't the only
freshman to have an immediate
impact this year. Outside
midfielder Ashley Mixon is tied
for second on the team with
12 assists. Mixon has gotten
stronger each game playing out
on the wing and understanding
her role of getting the ball up
the field and creating scoring
opportunities with superb balls
played into the box.
No team could have the
success that Taylor County has
enjoyed this season without
stellar play at the keeper
position. Senior Korie Wilson
has used her size and athleticism
to shut down opposing teams'
attempts to score.
Wilson has a revamped a
defense playing in front of her
after losing 3 starters off of last
year's team.
Brook Barton, who is one
of the top defenders in the
Big Bend, has shown a lot of
leadership with her play and
direction helping newcomers
junior Kelsea Smymios and
sophomores Elizabeth Devane
and Sarah Meecham become
a formidable defensive back
line.
Returning starters Gloria
Taylor, the 3rd leading scorer on
the team, and Jordan Williams
continue to help control the
middle and outside of the field,
respectively.
"Gloria continues to give
quality minutes and works
hard controlling the middle
of the field," said Nix. "I'm
pleased with everyone's efforts
this season. Bottom line is you
can list goals and assists by
individuals, but the truth is it


takes a team to accomplish what
we've done this season."
Nix said she's learned a lot
as a first year head coach and
plans to use that knowledge to
help finish strong this year and
come back and be even better
next season.
"I'm excited about being a
part of a traditionally successful
program that was started by
Coach Kerry Puhl. He's the
one who deserves the credit for
putting Taylor County soccer on
the map," Nix said.

TCHS drops to Class 2B in '09;


Dixie County falls to Class 1A


Taylor County High's new
football coach will face a
slightly different' schedule in
2009-2010 as it will drop,in
classification and gain one new
district opponent while losing
another.
The Florida High School
Athletic Association (FHSAA)
released its final class and

reviews and appeals.
The Bulldogs will now play
in District 2, Class 2B. The new
district will feature old Class 2A
district foes Madison and Fort
White as well as newcomers
Florida High and Union County.
Gone is Dixie County which
successfully appealed the
FHSAA to be dropped to Class
1A.
Schools had until Jan. 9 to
submit written requests for
reassignment to 'a different
classification and/or district
if they believe the change
was warranted. Schools had
the option of playing in their
assigned classification or one
classification higher.


Schools in the lower 10 percent
of the population breakdown
of each classification had the
option of playing down one
classification if it was deemed
more suitable for district travel
reasons.
Class 2B is made up of schools
with student populations of 522
to 1,014.
According to a student census
taken in October, Taylor County
had 701 students, Fort White


748, Madison 677, Union
County 607, Florida High 605
and Dixie County 547.
Class 2B features 57 schools
from across the state.
Lafayette County (Mayo)
also successfully appealed
FHSAA and will play down in
Class 1B in a 10-team district
that includes Aucilla Christian.
District football scheduling
meetings will be held on
Wednesday, Jan. 28.

Carroll


says no


to Taylor


Madison County football
Coach. Frankie Carroll notified
Taylor County school officials
Friday that he will be staying in
Madison.
Taylor County High Principal
Michael Thompson said Carroll
called him Friday morning with
the news.
Carroll and Taylor County
school officials had back-and-
forth meetings for about two
weeks concerning the vacancy
created in December with the
resignation of Bulldog Coach
Price Harris.
But in the end, Carroll
decided to stay at Madison,
leaving Taylor County with the
job of still filling the position.
Supt. Paul Dyal said last
week he hopes to have the
position filled by mid-February.
Currently, about 40 resumes
have been submitted for the
job.

Celebrating
Arbor Day
The Florida Division of Forestry
and students of Taylor County
Elementary School joined together
Friday to observe Arbor Day by
planting a tree on the school's
grounds. Above, students from
Missy Gray's and Melvelyn
Putnal's fifth grade classes help
shovel soil around the newly-
planted tree. Also on hand
(shown at right) were National
Forestry Queens Heather Gibson
and Haley Robertson, both of
Marianna.


Taylor dist.


recognized


for strides


in literacy

During the statewide
"Celebrate Literacy!" drive
last week, some 13 school
districts--including Taylor--
were recognized by the
Department of Education for
being in the top 25 percent of
all Reading First districts in the
state.
These districts produced
"exceptional reading results in
2008, increasing the
percentage of students reading
at or above grade level and
successfully reducing the
percentage of students with
serious reading difficulties,
Senator Charles Dean said.
Among the 13 school
districts recognized, three were
located in Dean's Senate
District 3--Dixie, Marion and
Taylor.
"I am proud of these
recognized districts, as they are
shining examples of what is

Nature 'focus'of art exhibit


The North Florida
Community College (NFCC)
Art Department invites the
public to view its current
exhibit featuring works by local
photographer Marsha Pokorny.
The exhibit is open now
through Feb. 11 in the NFCC
Art Gallery during regular
college business hours,
Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.


to 4:30 p.m.
A native of New Mexico,
Pokorny has lived in Florida for
almost 20 years where she
enjoys capturing the beauty of
nature with her camera. A
variety of her nature inspired
photographs are on display in
the NFCC exhibit.
"Marsha captures stunning
images of nature with her


photography," said Lisa
Barden, NFCC art instructor
and gallery coordinator. "Her
sunset and sunrise photos are
breathtaking."
Most of Pokorny's
photographs are taken in her
gardens and pond in Lee and
along Florida's East coast. She
began actively pursuing
photography about six years


ago when her husband, Daniel,
gave her a 35mm camera.
A closing reception will be
held Feb. 11 from 5-7 p.m. with
Pokorny available to meet
visitors and discuss her work.
The public is invited to attend.
For more information, contact
Lisa Barden, NFCC art
instructor, at (850) 973-1642 or

Capitalism is


By JERRY OSTERYOUNG
"What kind of society isn't
structured on greed? The
problem of social organization
is how to set up an arrangement
under which greed will do the
least harm; capitalism is that
kind of a system."
--Milton Friedman
It seems that so many of the
things that I read or watch on
TV lately assert that capitalism
is broken and just does not
work anymore. Basically,
capitalism allows the market
or free enterprise to determine
the allocation of resources.
With capitalism, resources go to
those entities that are willing to
pay the highest price for them. If
one firm is willing to pay higher
prices for a pound of steel than
its competitor, then it will -- and
should -- get the steel.
Ever since the founding of our
country, capitalism has enabled
it to grow and prosper. By far,
it is the best economic system
out there, and our country
has succeeded and flourished
because of it.
Our economic system
allows anyone who wants to
start a business to do so with
limited government regulation
(mainly collecting fees). Our
government does not determine
who is allowed to start a
business; rather, capitalism


determines winners and losers
in the market place.
Businesses come and go
(lately more are going than
coming), and the market
determines the ones that will
remain viable and those that
will fail (Darwin's Law of
Natural Selection).
Now does this mean that it
is a perfect system? Of course
not. Like any other system,
capitalism has its warts and its
flaws. It is not perfect system,
but there is not a perfect
economic system.
Lately we have witnessed
numerous problems in' our
economy, from the home bubble
to the Madoff Ponzi scheme.
Many people point to these as
evidence of capitalism's failure.
However, from my perspective,
it shows that capitalism did
not fail completely; rather, it
was in a large part a failure of
government.
The housing bubble came
about because regulators
allowed and encouraged
financial institutions to continue
making bad loans in which
borrowers would be unable to
pay them off if a small hiccup
should occur. Government also
failed to regulate adequately
the trading of these sub-prime
loans.
With the Madoff Ponzi


debacle, the SEC audited
the books of his companies
approximately 15 times
and found no major issues.
Obviously, the SEC failed to
ensure that the information
given to existing and potential
investors was truthful so that
good economic decisions could
be made.
Part of capitalism is business
cycles in our economy, we have
ups and then downs. We are
going through a recession now,
but we have had many years of
a growing economy and we will
recover from this recession.
Capitalism is the vehicle by
which our country has grown
and prospered. We need to
tell the story of how good our
system is so that folks can
appreciate how well capitalism
works rather than dwelling on
the negative.
You can do this!

Jerry Osteryoung is the
Director of Outreach of the
Jim Moran Institute for Global
Entrepreneurship in the College
of Business at Florida State
University, the Jim Moran
Professor of Entrepreneurship
andProfessor ofFinance. He was
the founding executive director
of the Jim Moran Institute and
served in that position from 1995
through 2008.


CAPITOL UPDATE


from the office of Rep. Leonard Bembry


Wednesday, Jan. 14, marked
the end of a nine-day special
session held to balance the
state's budget after news of a
$2.3 billion shortfall in revenues
for the fiscal year 2008-2009.
.hhman Democrat State
-Representative Leonard
Bembry was active in
negotiations to deal with cuts
in agriculture, aquaculture
and education. As a member
of the Natural Resources
Appropriations Committee, he
listened as heads of agencies
and staff of the Department
of Agriculture and Consumer
Services, the Department of
Environmental Protection,
Water Management Districts,
and the Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
made recommendations they
feel had the least impact on the
citizens of the State of Florida.
Bembry was also named
as a conferee on the Natural
Resources Appropriations
Conference Committee where
he had the opportunity to deal
with the differences between
the House and Senate budgets.
UL


"We had the opportunity to
protect Florida Agriculture and
Aquaculture from the thrust of
many cuts that would have been
very damaging to our future
in District 10. I am relatively
pleased -with the resolutions
we were able to negotiate
in the Natural Resources
Appropriations Conference
Committee and could support
that part of the budget," Bembry
said.
During debate on the House
floor, Bembry also had the
opportunity to address 'the
members on issues that affect
District 10 constituents. He
defended cuts to education,
medical care for the elderly and
the developmentally disabled,
tourism and the environment.
"I was unable to vote
for the budget as I feel the
solutions that we considered
were narrowed too much by
the House Leadership and did
not reasonably address our
budget situation. Education and
healthcare were cut to a point
that it could damage our ability
going forward to properly


educate our children and
protect our older generation.
Our children are our hope for
tomorrow and older generations
brought us to where we are.
We have to protect both areas,"
Bembry said ---- -
"By law, we had to balance''
the budget but we need to
protect the constituents in
District 10 and that must always
be our priority," he continued.
Bembry has opened a district
office in Madison located at
North Florida Community,
College. The telephone number
for the office is 850-973-5630.
He will be opening his satellite
office in Chiefland located at
the old railroad depot adjacent
to the chamber of commerce
and will be open by the end of
January.
"We were able to get HB
109, Clinical, Counseling
and Psychotherapy Services
through the first committee
for the 2009 Session with
an unanimous vote and I am
excited to have the opportunity
to serve in the Florida House of
Representatives," Bembry said.

mercy Newi Provi ers"


Midweek Muddle


With Christmas fresh on my mind
and my heart, I made one specific
resolution for the new year, 2009: to
make the next holiday season easier on
myself.
With more downtime.
And a silent night or two.
So when my two college friends--both
mothRs ,of,, te, bride iplje previ Sft
year--failed to send Christmas cards
(although they spent thousands of
dollars on family pictures and surely
had one that would do), I took note.
"It's just too much trouble, just
another thing to do," said one.
"I'll quit too then," I said.
When you make pronouncements
such as that, the world plays tricks
on you. Although I sent nearly 70
cards this year, I bet I received 90--a
bumper crop. I received cards from
everybody I've ever known, and many
who shouldn't remember me.
With each card, my resolution became
more questionable.
After all, sending a card is sending
joy. What's more admirable during
the Christmas season than to send joy?
Do you enjoy going to the mailbox for
that many consecutive days during
any other month of the'year? But in
December, there's a skip in my step,
and when I open the box, I find:
pictures of my newest cousins, in
Charleston, S.C., in Carrollton, Ga., and
in Prattville, Ala. If we didn't exchange
Christmas cards, would I have pictures
of my newest cousins?
a penciled message from a second-
grade friend in Dowling Park. Merry
was just as merry with only one r.
S Drew's getting married! Yes,
that's the news from a former hospital
administrator and his golfing wife who
lived in Perry.
SOh look, they're in front of a train,
said the photographer-in-me as another
family's greeting was opened.
"And what a great wedding picture,"
I exclaimed, wanting to forward it to
my two dearest mother-of-the-bride
friends to whose daughters' weddings
I traveled 300 miles each. Surely a 42-
cent stamp is just a drop in the big
wedding bucket.
I found a beach scene from Destin,
Fla., with a high school friend's only
grandchild. Even though it is impossible
that she or I are old enough to be a
grandmother, I would never know what
this child looked like if I didn't get an
annual card from her.


areby resolve...


By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
SThere was a card from the crazy
former baseball coach here and his
sweet family, who mailed smiles and
best wishes.
And from families we love who once
called Perry home, but have gravitated
toward Memphis in what we call the
Buckeye (Bermuda) Triangle.
i :,aNspape rassociates whio noaally
communicate through e-mail put a
stamp on one letter each year. Can I
bear to miss it?
SI received a picture of the cherry
blossoms blooming in Washington,
D.C. Yes, my doctor-cousin visited
with her new husband and sent me a
copy.
SRemembering a vacation shared
some 10 years ago, a sweet young
friend from Texas annually sends me a
card. How dare I not respond?
S I hear from neighbors from'my
mother's circle of friends, with pictures
of their children and grandchildren.
St. George Island friends check in
with promises to see you on the sand in
the coming year. What a nice thought
in December.
The husband's high school friends.
Do you suppose they'd ever hear from
him, if he hadn't married me?
SMy banker, my hairdresser, my
golfing buddies.
The church family which "adopted"
me 30 years ago at Auburn University
and still remembers me even though
this professor traveled to Geneva,
Switzerland, for a United Nations
Economic Council. And they still send
me a card?
SOne of the daughter's newlywed-
couple friends in the get-away
limousine.
An authentic Korean New Year's
card from the Perry girl who traveled
there to teach school.
And then, breaking from tradition,
there was the Happy New Year greeting
from the family which recognized the
hurdles Christmas throws at you and
aimed for a January mailing instead.
But the one I held in my hands as
I tossed my newest resolution aside
came from the couple in Auburn who
invited me for many a Sunday lunch
when I was a poor college student. It
was my first taste of Maryland turkey
and a memorable taste of hospitality.
Turning away from my Christmas
card responsibility would clearly be
treason...if you remember the reason
for the season.

I to r) Mayor Emily Ketring, City Manager Bob Brown, Supervisor of General Services
Walter Bishop, DOF District Manager Erin Albury, Tree Board Member Erdman West

Robonauts design firefighting robot


The 4-H Robotics Club is
doing what it can to help protect
Taylor County's forests.
Over the course of the last
few months, the eight-member
Robonauts team has prepared
scientific research as part of the
First Lego League challenge.
The project required looking
at a local climate problem
and coming up with a creative
solution.
Taylor County contains
667,000 acres, 86 percent of
which are forested (580,000
acres). In 2003, the county's
forestry economic output was
$1.94 billion, making it the
top financial forestry county in
Florida:
The Robonauts interviewed
local forestry experts who
explained the fire triangle.
The fire triangle shows that
oxygen, heat and fuel are
necessary to create and sustain
a fire. Foresters use several
approachesto fight fire. They
most frequently dig or bur a
fire line, removing fuel from the
path of the fire.
The Robonauts designed a
tractor for use on the fire line.
The tractor would take dirt
or sand from plowing the fire


line and throw it back onto
the approaching fire. All the
experts said the tractor was a
good idea which could be used.
Local experts interviewed
included foresters Barry Tye


and Steve Spradley (Division
of Forestry); foresters David
Adams and Seth Drawdy (Foley
Timber & Land); and Master
Logger Gary Brett (M.A.
Rigoni, Inc.).


The 4-H Robonauts
: Club designed a tractor
to help fight forest fires
by, throwing dirt directly
onto the blaze. The club
Interviewed local experts
to learn about Taylor
County's forests and the
efforts made to protect
them.
