any of our events, you will always
see Ron and Sue Coward
standing beside it', Moehring
said.
"People who bring so much of
themselves to a community can
never be truly replaced and will
always be missed. Another
community will soon recognize
and be blessed by what ours is
losing," she continued.
"We will never have the proper
words of thanks for their service
but everyone is invited to bring a
potluck dish and spend the
evening with the Cowards."

In tax refund fraud scheme



Inmate takes IRS for $3 million


An inmate serving life in
prison is allegedly behind a
racketeering and money
laundering scheme that bilked
the Internal Revenue Service
out of an estimated $3 million.
State Attorney Robert L.
"Skip" Jarvis announced
Tuesday that he is pursuing the
prosecution of former Taylor
Correctional Institution inmate
Timothy M. Coughlin, 46, for
racketeering, nine counts of
identity theft, nine counts of
uttering a forgery, money
laundering and conspiracy.
Four other individuals face
charges related to the case,


including former TCI
correctional officer Illia Alisha
Hale.
Hale, who according, to
Jarvis was fired by the Florida
Department of Corrections,
was taken into custody in
Tallahassee Tuesday morning;
she has since been transferred
to the Taylor County Jail.
A third suspect, Rhonda
Bellamy Tellier, the wife of
another inmate, is expected to
surrender herself to authorities
at the jail today (Wednesday).
The final two suspects--the
mother and son team of
Margaret W. Banks and David


Allen Wingard--face warrants
in their home state of Alabama.
"The warrant for Banks, who
is 85, will be served in
Alabama. Her son, Wingard, is
currently out of the country in
Costa Rica," Jarvis said, adding
that Wingard himself is a
former prison inmate.
"This investigation is a joint
effort of the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement, the U.S. Postal
Inspection Service, the Florida
Department of Corrections
Inspector Generals Office and
the Third Judicial Circuit State
Attorney's Office involving the


filing of false federal
tax returns by an

Despite rain and less

Saturday was a rousing
success, with an
estimated crowd of
3,000 to 4,000 people
filling Riverside Drive.

Taylor County Emergency
Management is working with
the American Red Cross to
ensure local shelters are ready
to open in the event of a large-
scale power outage during a
.severe cold snap.
Emergency Management
Coordinator Steve Proctor said
Tuesday the Perry Elks Lodge
will be on standby as a Red
Cross Shelter when
temperatures are expected to
drop' below freezing for an
extended time.
He pointed to the last
instance when temperatures
here dropped in the teens. The
next morning, a brownout
resulted in some 1,500
customers losing power for
about 30 minutes.
"When everyone woke up
the next morning and started
their coffee and took showers
all at the same time, it put a
high demand on the utilities
system," Proctor said.
"That's the very reason I
asked the Red Cross to
designate a cold weather
shelter."
Should a longer-lasting
power outage occur, whether
due to a brownout or an
accident affecting a substation,
the shelter would provide a
place for residents to stay
warm.
"At 15, 16, 17 degrees, it
doesn't take long for people to
start having a problem,"
Proctor said.
Currently, the Elks Lodge is


the designated cold-weather
shelter, but Proctor said he was

Local tv

go digital

Of Tallahassee broadcast
stations, the CBS station
WCTV has historically been
easiest to receive over the air in
Taylor County.
As of Tuesday, however,
WCTV is now only available
via digital broadcasts. While
cable and satellite subscribers
were not affected, local
residents who use an antenna
will need either a television
with an internal digital receiver
or a digital converter box to
continue to receive the station.
(Any television manufactured
after March 1, 2007, has a
digital tuner.)
Along with WCTV,
Tallahassee broadcasters
WTXL (ABC) and WFSU
(PBS) also converted to digital
on Tuesday.
While Congress passed a bill

President Barack Obama to

Sports Complex ready for


first spring soccer season


With the Taylor County
Sports Complex preparing for
its first ever spring soccer
season, work is continuing to
complete Phase II at the
facility.
Construction crews are
currently dressing the four
baseball diamonds that are the
highlights of the project's
second phase.
Work is already complete or
nearly finished on the new
roadways and parking lots, as
well as the fencing, backstops,
dugouts and covered bleachers
at the facility. Two bridges over
the creek on the property are
also completed, one for
vehicles and one for pedestrian
traffic.
The lighting is being
installed--with the first lights
erected Tuesday morning--and
the irrigation system is being
installed this week.
Additionally, Department of
Correction work crews are


constructing a concession stand
at the center of the baseball
quad which will include a
second-story announcers'
booth.
County Engineer Kenneth
Dudley said he expects the
fields will be planted by mid-
March.
When completed, Phase II
will include two 60-foot
baseball diamonds, along with
a 70-foot diamond and a 90-
foot diamond, along with
additional parking, two
concession stands with
restroom facilities (one at the
baseball diamonds and one at
the already completed soccer
fields) as well as 'a nature
trail.
According to Dudley, the
nature trail will run around the
complex and extend to
Highway 19. He added that the
Florida Department of
Transportation has plans to
construct a sidewalk from


where the trail ends in Perry to
the complex.
The sidewalk project could
be moved up to as soon as next
year with the help of federal
stimulus money, but a decision
has not been made yet on the
state level, Dudley added.
Construction on Phase II is
expected to cost $1,975,000. In
addition, the county has a lease
agreement for the lighting that
will cost $86,000, and a
contract for irrigation services
for $90,000.
The county is constructing
the two concession buildings
in-house using prison labor
rather than working with the
contractor. The estimated cost
for the three structures is
$300,000. The total cost of the
project is estimated at $2.45
million.
Dudley also said the county
has submitted the project for
consideration for possible
federal stimulus funds.


A crew with Musco Lighting installs one of the
lighting towers at the Taylor County Sports Complex
Tuesday morning. Work continues at the facility,
which will include four baseball diamonds when
Phase II is completed. (Additional photos page A-8.)

is expected to create or save
approximately 8,300 jobs in the
2nd District of Florida alone and
over 200,000 jobs throughout
the state of Florida.
The bill also gets money into
the hands of Americans who are
going to spend it quickly through
temporary tax provisions,
such as the expansion of the
Earned Income Tax Credit and
the increase of the refundable
portion of the child credit.
Additionally, it increases
unemployment benefits and
provides more funding for
food stamps and a one time
payment to recipients of Social
Security and veterans receiving
disability compensation"' and
pension benefits. Finally,
the stimulus bill helps small
businesses quickly recover
costs of new capital investments
by extending the bonus
depreciation for businesses
making investments in plants
and equipment in 2009.
"While I supported this
stimulus package, I also want to
be very clear and upfront with
the people I represent this
stimulus package is not a cure-
all for our serious economic
problems. In order to strengthen
our economy in the short and
long run, we must get serious
about fiscal responsibility and
get on a path toward fiscal
sanity," Boyd stated. "If we
don't do this and continue to
deficit spend, then the level of
our national debt the likes
of which we have never seen
before will be worse than the
current recession. I am eager to
tackle our long-term financial
problems head on, and I am
hopeful that President Obama's
Fiscal Summit in the coming
weeks will be the first step to
laying out a framework to fiscal
responsibility."

Roseheads begin new year at Fiddler's


By CHERYL GREGORY
Publicity
The Roseheads of Perry,
chapter 2207 of the Red Hat
Society, held their first
luncheon meeting of 2009 at 11
a.m., on Saturday, Jan. 31 at
Fiddler's Restaurant in
Steinhatchee. There were 27
Red Hatters (50 and older), one
Pink Hatter (under 50), and one
guest Red Hatter from
Greenville. Barbara Patrick and
Suezette Stephens composed
the January planning
committee.
Each lady signed in upon
arrival; this put her name in the
drawing for door prizes. Candy
wrapped in red foil was
scattered on the tables. Heart-
shaped holders were at each
place setting, containing a tea
bag, Biscoff and a magnet/pin

in a variety of sayings--some
humorous, some elegant.
Copies of 2008 in Review were
also on the tables.
Barbara Patrick rang the Red
Hat bell and welcomed
everyone.
"Our group is so large today
that we were moved into this
bigger dining room."
Mary Becht was awarded a
lovely vase with red hats
painted on it for being the first
to call in her reservation.
Everyone ordered lunch from
a special new menu with
choices such as a grouper
sandwich, a shrimp basket and
pecan chicken salad. The
committee was thanked for
including a copy of the menu
with the invitation.
New members were
introduced and welcomed to
the group. The Diamond Diva
pins that many members were
wearing were explained.
Patrick had a few "Roseheads
of Perry" pins on hand and
agreed to order more name
pins. Cheryl Gregory shared a
recent card from Thelma
Birdwell, an out-of-state
member who treasures her
friendship and affiliation with
the Roseheads.

Bulldogs sweep at


Fla. High tourney


The Taylor County High
baseball team swept through
the Florida High Pre-season
Tournament last week, defeating
Maclay 8-2 on Thursday and
-Florida High 10-5 Friday.
The Bulldogs accounted
for 23 hits in the two contests
as Coach Reggie Wentworth
utilized five different pitchers
and all 17 players on his roster.
After a slow start, the
Bulldogs jumped on Maclay in
the third inning with three runs,
then scored in each subsequent
inning to gain the win.
Nick Allbritton led the 13-
hit onslaught going 4-4 on the
night including a double. Taylor
Ratliff had two hits in three at-
bats including a dramatic in-
the-park homerun and Charlie
Johnson added two hits on two
trips to thelplate. Caleb Murphy
also had two hits.
Others with one hit, apiece
included Chad Hill (double),
Colby Murphy and Jonathan
Lincoln.
Allbritton got the win on the
mound pitching 4 innings and
giving up one run on two hits.
He struck out 4 and gave up 5
walks.
William Wentworth pitched
two innings in relief, giving
up one hit and one walk while
striking out one. Johnson
pitched one inning giving up
one hit, one walk and one
unearned run.
The Bulldogs' coach says he
has a problem, but it's a good
problem to have.


"I feel we have 16 guys on
our roster that are all capable
of playing at the varsity level.
There's not one kid on our team
that I have a problem putting in
the game because they all can
play," Wentworth said.
The coach said that getting 23
hits in two games will get you
wins most of the time.
"We made a few errors in the
field but those things can be
worked out. The kids that came
off the bench did some good
things for us," he said.
Against Florida High on
Friday, the Bulldogs jumped
out to a 4-0 lead due to some
hot bats and added 6 more runs
in the final three innings to ice
the game.
Top hitters were Wil Joiner
with 3 hits in 3 trips to the plate,
Tony Southerland and Allbritton
(double) with two hits each and
Johnson, Caleb Murphy, Zach!
Knowles and Hunter Barfield
with one hit each.
JohnsOn got the win on the'
mound after two innings of
relief in which he gave up two
hits, no runs and one walk while
striking out 2.
Ratliff got the start pitching
3 innings while striking out 4
and walking 4. Caleb Padgett
struck out 2 and walked 2 in two
innings of relief.
Taylor County was slated
to take on Suwannee Tuesday
before traveling to Union
County Thursday. The Bulldogs
will host Leon on Tuesday, Feb.
24 at 7 p.m.

Blount says

he missed

workouts
University of Oregon
runningback LeGarrette Blount
said Saturday his indefinite
suspension from the football
team stemmed from missing
winter workout sessions, not
academics.
Blount's suspension was
announced Tuesday by
Duck Coach Mike Bellotti
for "a failure to fulfill team
obligations." Blount said
the move was related to his
attendance at strength and
conditioning workouts and
not to academics, as widely
speculated.
Blount said he was late
arriving to Eugene for the
university's winter quarter.
After missing workouts due.4
to his late arrival, Blount said,
he missed a number of others
due. to illness,:leading to the
.suspension.
Blount said he respected the.;
decision but added he'd be back
on the team for spring practice
which gets underway March 30.
Blount said he will continue
a strength and conditioning
program despite being barred
from Oregon's athletic facilities.
Blount chose to return to
Oregon despite being pegged
as an early round NFL draft
pick in April had he left school
a year early. The NFL's draft
advisory board projected him to
be selected anywhere from the
first to the third round this year.

Purple, green and gold exploded in the Perry Woman's Club
last week when nearly 100 people gathered for a Mardi Gras
Luncheon featuring Jambalaya, red beans and rice, along with
salad and corn muffins.
June Byers headed this event which was staged against a
background of New Orleans jazz music, with club members in full
regalia parading through the room, tossing beads toward all who
gathered. Doris Lepoma was selected as queen of Mardi Gras,
and in her official capacity, extended appreciation to the entire
"krewe" but especially to Mary Ann Cox who baked 10 King,
Cakes for desserts that day.
Funds raised from this carnival event will go toward general
club needs, with all drawings benefitting the club's scholarship
fund. Entertainment for the luncheon was provided by Zodie
Horton and Martha Swindle.


Through the 4-H embryology project, students can
develop life skills that help them learn to plan and
organize, keep recordS and work as a team.


Baby chicks take


over fourth grade


By LORI WIGGINS
4-H Extension Agent II
If you have visited Taylor
County Elementary School
recently, you discovered more
than just students on
campus--you also encountered
more than 200 fertilized
chicken eggs in incubators.
All fourth grade science
classes are studying about
embryology. Through the 4-H
embryology project, students
hatched chicks in the classroom
and witnessed the exciting and
wonderful miracle of life.
Students also took in the
responsibilities of caring for
the fertilized eggs during the
21-day incubation period and
the baby chicks after they have
hatched.
Students began the 21-day
journey by getting their
incubators ready to house the
fertilized eggs. Temperature
and humidity are two important
variables the students have to
monitor throughout this
process in order to have a
successful hatch. Each day
students keep records while
carefully monitoring the eggs.
At the end of the cycle, the


hope was to have the eggs
hatch. Students then cared for
the chicks for about two weeks
in the classroom.
The 4-H embryology project
teaches students about science
and respect for life. Children
have a natural sense of
curiosity about living things in
the world around them.
Building on this curiosity,
students can develop an
understanding of biology
concepts through direct
experience with living things,
their life cycles and their
habitats.
Many educators believe that
students learn best through
their experiences and
interactions with the world.
They learn by listening,
observing, experimenting and
applying their knowledge to
real-world situations. Through
the 4-H embryology project
students develop life skills that
help them learn to plan and
organize, keep records and
teamwork.
So if you walk through the
halls of the elementary school
and hear 'a chirp, you now
know where it is coming from.
