The Taylor County Sheriffs
Office closed 24 open burglary
cases Friday with the arrest of
just one suspect--John William
Shaw, 21.
The series of burglaries

Shoplifters

target local

retail stores
Local retailers have seen a
jump in retail thefts, with store
security and police nabbing
four shoplifters within a three-
day period.
The first case occurred
Friday, Feb. 6; when Walmart
employees observed a man
removing a price tag from a
sweat shirt and putting on the
shirt. He then put a 10-pack
bag.of socks down his pants.
The suspect, Jack Massey,
49, of Carrabelle, was stopped
as he attempted to leave the
sore without paying for the
items. He was held by security
until Perry Police Department
Pil. Bruce Griffin arrived on
.cene.
The total value of the stolen
items \\ a> $32.07. Massey was
charged with one count of
retail theft.
The second case also
happened Friday, this time at
Kman. The suspect, Victoria
pavis, 23, was seen concealing
several times of clothing in her
shirt. An employee told Ptl.
Conni Hightower that he
"* Please see page 3


occurred Sept. 5-26 within a
two-mile radius of the city
limits.
Shaw has been charged with
19 counts of burglary, 4 counts
of armed burglary and 17
counts of theft.
"Most of the thefts occurred
from unlocked vehicles. There
were two instances of
residential burglary and in one
of those cases, the suspect even
stole a vacuum cleaner," Capt.
Ron Rice said.
"Inv. Donna Lee worked
diligently and very hard on this
case, and deserves credit. The
suspect stole anything that was
left in a vehicle...guns, GPS
units, cell phones...anything.
Firearms were taken in at least
four of these burglaries."


Although the Taylor County
School District's plan to
introduce an "alternate meal"
program for students with
delinquent accounts has
received a number of
complaints from parents, it has
also resulted in more than
$5,600 in payments.
The school board
unanimously voted last month
to implement the program
after the total amount owed
the district climbed to
$35,000--some $7,000 of


Reading award
Superintendent of Schools Paul Dyal congratulated students and staff at Perry
Primary School (PPS), Taylor County Elementary School (TCES) and
Steinhatchee School last week after the district was recognized as one of the top
Reading First districts in the state. According to Dyal, the district joined the
Reading First grant program some five years ago for grades kindergarten through
third. Success is monitored through standardized testing and Taylor County was
among the top 25 percent of Reading First districts in Florida. Shown above are
(from I to r): PPS Assistant Principal Pam Padgett, PPS Reading Coach Carol
Hendry, Dyal, TCES Principal Jan Walker and Steinhatchee School Principal
Sylvia Ivey.


which from just the first
semester of this year.
According to the program,
beginning Feb. 1, students who
owe more than $10 are
provided--instead of the regular
menu--either graham crackers
and milk or cheese toast and
milk for breakfast, and either a
peanut butter and jelly
sandwich and milk or a
cheese sandwich and milk for
lunch.
There is no charge for the
alternate meals.


Hiking the Florida Trail
Jodi Eller and Matt Keene are following their dream of hiking the Florida Trail, and hope to inspire others to
enjoy the beauty of nature that can be found just a few steps away. The couple, who started their trip in
Pensacola, have already walked about 400 miles and look to complete the next 900 by March. They spent this
past weekend in Perry, with their route taking them next to White Springs where they will follow the Suwannee
River south. They will end their trip in Key West. Prior to beginning the hike, they completed the Saltwater
Paddling Trail, kayaking from Jacksonville to Key West and back to Pensacola. Follow their trek online at

Impacting local mothers and babies


Healthy Start in jeopardy?


As the Florida Legislature
prepares to tackle an estimated
$4 billion shortfall next month,
Healthy Start programs across
the state are facing a possible
22 percent funding cut for the
2009 fiscal year.
According to Healthy Start
Coalition of Jefferson, Madison
and Taylor Counties Executive
Director Donna Hagan, such a
cut could affect as many as 53
mothers and babies in Taylor
County.
The Florida Legislature
created the Healthy Start
program in 1991 to
improve pregnancy outcomes
through education and prenatal
care.
Florida Association of
Healthy Start Coalitions
recently sent a letter to
Governor Charlie Crist and
legislators on the importance of
the program as well as the


effect that smoking has .on
infant health.
The group is asking
lawmakers to place a 40-cent
per pack assessment on
cigarettes sold by companies
who were left out of the state's
tobacco settlement agreement--
a move they say would raise
about $89 million annually in
Florida.
"Maternal smoking is a
leading preventable cause of
low birth weight and premature
babies, and we should
hold cigarette companies
accountable for the health costs
they inflict on the state of
Florida," said Leslie Spurlock,
president of the Florida
Association of Healthy Start
Coalitions.
"The money raised by
closing the loopholes in the
state's tobacco policy would be
enough money to fully fund


needed services for Florida's
pregnant women and babies in
Healthy Start, help expand
Medicaid coverage up to 200
percent of the poverty level,
and aid other programs that
protect the health of Florida's
babies and mother's.
In 2007, Florida reported
more than 1,680 infant deaths
and 20,767 low birth weight
babies, giving the state a grade
of "F" in premature births as
assigned by the March of
Dimes.
"The irony is that it would
cost less to provide prenatal
care and education to every
woman who needs it than to
pay the intensive care hospital
bills of the babies who are born
to mothers who received no
care," said Dr. Alex J. Brickler,
an obstetrician at North
Florida Women's Care in
Tallahassee.


According to District
Finance Director Vickie
McManus, food service has
collected more than $5,600 so
far (16 percent of the total
amount owed).
At the school board meetingg
held last week, one food
,service employee .said, "We've
been cussed out too, but people
are paying."
Although she did not have an
exact number of students on the
alternate meal program,
McManus said last week


some 460 students owed some
amount.
Under the program, parents
can establish a payment plan
and return their children to the
regular menu.
District officials are also
urging parents whose students
would be eligible for
free or reduced-priced meals to
sign their children up.
According to McManus, the
district has faced problems
getting parents to enroll their
children.


Pilot lends voice


to 4-day national


NTSB hearing

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) last week
held a four-day hearing in Washington, D.C., on the safety of
helicopter emergency medical services (EMS) operations and a
local voice was among those heard during the session.
Gary Sizemore, the lead pilot of the EMS helicopter stationed in
Taylor County, and past president of the National EMS Pilots
Association, took part in the hearing, representing the organization
as an interested party in the proceedings.
Sizemore called the hearings "historically significant, adding
that the last time the NTSB held a four-day hearing was in the
aftermath of the TWA 800 crash in
1996.
He sat on one of 12 panels ''"\
which asked questions of experts -
from within and outside the -"
industry. 0
According to the NTSB, the A
goal of the hearing was to learn '
more about helicopter EMS o -
operations so that it can better
evaluate factors that lead to ,
accidents.
A series of recent crashes across
the country sparked the NTSB to
place EMS helicopter safety to the top of its priority list, Sizemore
said.
In January 2006, the NTSB issued a special investigation report
on EMS operations.
"Many of the 55 EMS-related aviation accidents (fatal and non-
fatal) that occurred between January 2002 and January 2005 could
have been prevented with simple corrective actions, including
oversight, flight risk evaluations, improved dispatch procedures
and the incorporation of available technologies," officials said
following the report.
As a result, the board issued four safety recommendations to the
FAA, which have not yet been fully implemented.
Over the past 12 months, the NTSB has investigated an
additional nine fatal EMS accidents, which killed 35 people. The
dramatic increase in fatalities prompted the board to hold last
week's public hearing.
"We have seen an alarming rise in the numbers of EMS
accidents, and the safety board believes some of these accidents
could have been prevented if our recommendations had been
implemented," said member Robert Sumwalt, chairman of the
hearing's Board of Inquiry.
"This hearing will be extremely important because it can
provide an opportunity to learn more about the industry so that
possibly we can make further recommendations that can prevent
these accidents and save lives."
"I think the hearing went well," Sizemore said. "There will
probably be some recommended changes (to operating
procedures)."
Those changes could include requiring additional safety
equipment, which could increase the cost associated with
operating helicopter EMS services.

Military Ball 2009
Taylor County JROTC hosted its annual Military Ball Jan. 30, in the fellowship
hall of First Presbyterian Church. "Our cadets, as well as our guests, had a
wonderful time, a delicious dinner from Goodman's Bar-B-Que, along with words
from our keynote speaker. We would like to give a special thanks to Mr. and Mrs.
Maddox, Mr. and Mrs. Edwards, and Mr. Bell for their decorating skills. We would
also like to thank our guests for helping us have an excellent night. We owe a large
thanks to our guest speaker, Major Robert K. West, and his wife, who gave us a
lesson on life and added a few extra laughs to the night. The DJ had an
excellent array of music, and even showed a slide show with pictures of our cadets
throughout the year. Overall, the night was a complete success, and I
believe everyone walked away happier than they came. We
thank anyone we may have left out, who made this
Military Ball possible," 1SG (Ret.) Eddie L. Smith
said.

A-7 Taco Times February 11,2009


Bulldogs open baseball


season this Thursday


The Taylor County High
baseball team will open the
2009 campaign this Thursday
in Tallahassee as the Bulldogs
participate in the Florida High
Pre-Season Tournament.
Taylor County is slated to play
Maclay Thursday at 4 p.m. and
Florida High on Friday in the
nightcap at 7.
Bulldog Coach Reggie
Wentworth said this year's
team is going to be a young but
talented group. The varsity team
will carry 17 players and only
three of them will be seniors.
Wentworth said he expects his
team's defense and pitching staff
to be solid this season.
Leading the 'Dogs on the
mound will be senior Nick
Allbritton, juniors Taylor
Ratliff and Charlie Johnson and
sophomores Caleb Padgett and
William Wentworth. Juniors
Tony Southerland, Brett Bassett
and Caleb Murphy may also
see some action on the mound.
Defensively, Taylor County is
very deep and has several players
that can play multiple positions.
Wentworth said the infield
will consist of Caleb Padgett
and Caleb Murphy sharing the
catching duties. He added that
Murphy will likely be in the
outfield when he is not catching
due to his strong bat.
Southerland and Johnson will
take care of the duties at 1st base
with Johnson moving around to
several other positions.
"Charlie (Johnson) was one
of our leading hitters last year
as a 10th grader batting in the
leadoff spot so we're hoping
he'll continue his progress this
season," the coach said.
Second base will be handled
by Wil Joiner, Chase Stefanelli
and Colby Murphy. Wentworth
said Murphy is another player
that can play almost any position
on the field:.: .. '' '...
Ratliff will begin the year as
the Bulldogs' leadoff hitter and
will play shortstop.
"Taylor (Ratliff) has
tremendous speed and we'll be
counting on him on the mound,
at short and at the plate. Hunter
Barfield is a 10th grader who will


push all the middle infielders at
the varsity level for playing
time," Wentworth said.
Third base will be one of
the strongest positions on the
team with Nick Allbritton and
sophomores William Wentworth
and Morgan Pelt competing for
playing time.
Allbritton was one of the
top hitters in the Big Bend last
season and can glay several
positions depending on who is
pitching. With Pelt's speed he
will probably wind up in the
starting lineup somewhere and
Wentworth can play the outfield
or 1st base as well, the coach
said.
The outfield has many players
that will see playing time
including senior Zach Knowles,
juniors Jonathan Lincoln, Brett
Bassett, Brian Linton, Charlie
Johnson, Caleb Murphy and
Colby Murphy and sophomores
Morgan Pelt and Chad Hill


"We are very excited about this
year's team. We will be a team
that will move runners around
with our speed so it should
be some exciting baseball,"
Wentworth said.
Assisting Wentworth with the
coaching duties this season are
Richard Carr and Brad Flores.
"I feel fortunate to have two
guys like that on our staff.
Richard has been a head coach at
the varsity level and Brad played
at the professional level in the
Kansas City Royals organization
for several years. In fact Brad
played for me back in 1991-93
before being drafted into the
Royals organization. It's always
nice to have guys with that kind
of experience working with our
young people," Wentworth said.
The Bulldogs will open the
regular season Tuesday, Feb. 17,
when they entertain Suwannee.
The game is slated to get
underway at 7 p.m.

Season ends
The Taylor County High boys soccer team ended its season Thursday with an 8-0
loss to Pensacola Catholic in the regional quarterfinals of the state playoffs. The
Bulldogs, under first-year coach Rodney King, went 6-0 in district games during the
regular season and earned the top seed in the district tournament.


Lady Bulldogs advance to state


The Taylor County High girls
basketball team qualified for
the state regional quarterfinals
last weekend after battling to
finish runners-up in the district
tournament in Jasper.
The Lady Bulldogs will now
travel to Jacksonville-Ribault
(20-5) this Thursday for a 7
p.m. contest in the first round of
the state playoffs.
Getting to the playoffs wasn't
easy. Taylor County battled host
Hamilton County into overtime
Friday to get to Saturday's
district title game.
TCHS jumped on Hamilton
early and took an 18-6 lead
after the first quarter but then
hung on as the Lady Trojans
outscored Taylor County in
each of the final three periods to
tie the game at 60 at the end of
regulation.
The Lady Bulldogs then beat
Hamilton 8-6 in the overtime
period to gain the 68-66 victory.
Three TCHS players scored
in double figures including
Chelsea Tucker with 21,
Arneshia Stephens with 20
and Shakia Fitchett with 15
points.
Rounding out the scoring
for the Lady Bulldogs were


Meechy Edmond with 6 points,
Angela Myers with 6 and
Megan McClain with 2,
The victory advanced TCHS
into Saturday's district title
game but the Lady Bulldogs
came out on the short end of a
61-40 win by Florida High.
Stephens led Taylor County


with 21 points followed by
Fitchett with 16 and Tarashi
Gray with 3.
The winner of Thursday's
contest in Jacksonville will
face the winner of Thursday's
Florida High vs. Bolles game

Wilson wins annual Pinewood Derby


Thele annual Cub Scout
Pilm'\\c, Derby Race was
held lIriday. lan. 23, at First
United Methodist Church.
With the help of parents,
each Scout is required to take a
rectangular piece of pine wood
and cut, mold, shape or whittle
out a car of his own design.
Each model must meet
certain specifications in
order to qualify for the race,
such as weight, length and
height.
The night before the Derby,
all cars are weighed and
checked for size specifications,
then kept until the following
night so that no modifications
can be made.


The derby is a double
elimination race with each car
racing until it is defeated twice.
This gives each Scout a fair
chance and allows them to race
more than one opponent
throughout the race, organizers
said.
The cars are judged not
only on speed, but also
"most creative" and "best
design." fr
All Scouts who are involved
get a medal for their car
whether they place or not.
The winners this year were:
Kalab Wilson, first place; Gage
Madison, second place; Ben
Wurgler, third place; Brandon
Young, best design: and

"The Cub Scout organization
is a great organization for all
boys grades first through fifth
and the Pinewood Derby is one
example of the activities which
keep scouts busy throughout
the year."

Midweek Muddle


W

S... ..


Across from my father's very
respectable insurance agency, in the
small Alabama downtown where I grew
up, there was a business known as the
Family Bargain Store. Locally, it was just
called the FBS, as. if it was a government
agency or something. It was known
for the gaudy garland which typically
outlined any seasonal greetings as well
as the "Business Hours" sign, all year
round.
It was also known for its profusion
of red and white banners, which noted
outrageously inexpensive prices just to
get you in the doors where you might
find something,- considerable\ more
expensive.
The business was owned by the
town's only Jewish resident, Mr.
Kline. He lived on an "island" in a nice
subdivision of the town--or at least as a
child, that's how I viewed it. His home
was on Woodland Drive, where there
were hills and valleys, and a babbling
brook. Woodland Drive wrapped its
way around the center land parcel, the
way a doughnut surrounds its center.
There, at the center of this universe,
lived Mr. Kline and his wife.
No one else found his placement in
our community so symbolic, but as I
look back, it is striking. Surely it was a
novelty, of sorts, to be a small Alabama
town's only Jewish resident. I hope it
was a pleasant novelty.
Before I evoke too much sympathy
for Mr. Kline, please note that he wasn't
a timid person. He was loud and rather
intolerant himself. You were guilty
until proven innocent in his store.
He filled his window with wares and
hawked them right out the door to the
sidewalks if necessary. In fact, he made
up for his lack of square footage, by
displaying items from floor to ceiling.
Literally.
My mother wasn't very charmed by
the FBS. She never enjoyed digging for
merchandise, preferring clerks to bring
her shoes and to answer her inquiries
for linens.
Others in our town, however, loved
to go dig and pillage. It was like a
melting pot of shops you might find in
New York's China Town, or among the
souvenir vendors outside of Orlando. It
was probably the purest definition of a
"variety store" which was ever founded.
I would have thought that my
father, who was absolutely a tee-
totaling Baptist, lifelong deacon and
church treasurer, did little more than
occasionally glance with amusement
toward the FBS.
That was, until he walked through the
door of our red brick home one evening
with a bottle of muscadine wine. The
whole universe stopped for a deep


)rld peace

breath.
"Why Ed," my mother said, almost
giddy at the prospect of my father with
wine.
He placed it on the kitchen table,
moved his pipe to the other side of his
mouth and walked on through to the
den where he would immediately turn
on the light, the t.v. and sit down to
read the newspaper.
I was delighted by this unusual
behavior. Our house, if nothing else,
was known for its predictability. We ate
at the same time every evening, and one
day came to resemble another in some
sort of comfortable dependability.
So as my mother left the kitchen sink
to find my father on the couch for more
details, I circled through the living
room to watch the action from a better
vantage point.
"Where'd you get the wine?" she
asked.
"Mr. Kline gave it to me for Christmas,"
he said, turning to the editorial page
first.
It was probably the cheapest wine on.
the market, but I remember the label
lush with pictures of deep purple and
black grapes, all outlined in gold:
"Well that was nice," my mother said,
wiping her hands on her apron. I knew
she wanted to know more--I did, too,
but my father was a man of few words,
and he usually conserved his energy
on the details. We'd have to wonder
about the rest of the story, the rest of
the conversation, and what my Dad
said when he walked down Commerce
Street, toward his car, with a bottle of
wine. It's a wonder the sidewalks didn't
crack as the world held its breath.
Next thing I knew, the wine bottle
went into the closet where the ironing
board was stored. It hardly seemed
right to me. It was a beautiful bottle
and might have come from grapes in
the Garden Eden that we had studied
about in Sunday School.
The bottle only left the companionship
of the ironing board and the clothespins
a couple of times that I can recall, when
a bad cough seemed to be sufficient
for "medicinal purposes." Instead,
the wine aged for years and years, and
probably became the consistency of
cane syrup.
Now, however, as I look back upon the
FBS and the muscadine wine, it occurs
to me that in the most unlikely places--a
small downtown in southern Alabama
--a Baptist and a Jew found friendship
on a street called Commerce.
I'd like to surround that sentiment
with some gaudy garland, sell a candle
for 29 cents and turn on some blinking
lights. It's not peace on the Gaza Strip,
but it's something.

of its intent to Issue an environmental
resource permit (FiletNo. 287422-002)
to the Perry Pines, LLC, 950 Jefferson
Street, Hollywood, Florida 33019 for a
for a permit/water quality

water management system for a new
limestone-mining operation within a
637.79-acre project area. The

(mine pits). The mining pits are
positioned to avoid a Florida Power
Corporation transmission easement
that bisects the property. There will

activity. As mitigation for these
wetland impacts, the permitted will
protect 159.54 acres through a
recorded conservation easement.
This area consists of a broad slough
that traverses the west side of the
mine. The preservation area includes
a variety of upland and wetland
habitats that will be restored or
enhanced through limited regrading
and the replanting of cut-over
habitats. The site includes 54.31 acres
of uplands that will feature 13 small
created deep-water isolated
wetlands to benefit wood storks and
other fish-eating wading birds and
ducks.
The mine is designed to
recycle and store all process
wastewater and runoff from storm
events up to a 25year, 24-hour storm.
The site will include a processing
center and operations plant that will
create 68 acres of impervious
surfaces during mining. No
impervious surfaces will remain after
mining. The maximum depth of the
proposed mining will be
approximately 124 feet below the
existing grade, which is about 120
feet below the average water table.
After mining, the project will result in
three deep lakes, totaling 335.03
acres. All landforms disturbed by
mining and the reclaimed lake
shorelines will be re-contoured to a
maximum 4H:1V (horizontal:vertical)
slope to a depth of six feet below the
average water level. The shorelines
will be revegetated with a mix of
native herbaceous plants and trees.
The estimated life of the mine is
20tyears. The postreclamatlon
anticipated land use is silvicultural,
with a mixture of open wooded
habitats and large, deep lakes. The
site is located along the south side of
U.S. Highway 98, one mile west of the

Range 5 East, Section 17 and 18, in
