scam



alert

Two suspected scam artists
have defrauded local residents
out of nearly $4,000 and
business owners are asked to
be on the alert if the women
enter their stores.
"One individual will enter
the business and distract
whoever is working while the
other suspect goes through the
employee's purse and steals her
credi-card -number," Taylor
County .Sheriffs Office Inv.
Donna Lee said,
"Once they have the credit
card number, they go to a
Walmart in another city and
purchase a $1,000 gift card
with the stolen credit card.
From that point the pair have
been traveling to South Florida
where they spend the gift
cards. By the time the victim
receives a notice from her
credit card company about the
fraudulent purchase, the
suspects have not only already
bought the gift cards, but
they've spent them too."
The sheriffs office is asking
anyone who may be able to
identify the two suspects to
contact Lee by calling 838-
3505,
Callers may remain
anonymous.


Boggs' 2007 squad went a
perfect 13-0 to capture the AA
State title. His team went 9-4
in 2006 and 6-5 this past
season.
He became head coach at
Brookwood in 2003 after a
two-year stint at North Florida
Christian (NFC) in Tallahassee
where he served as assistant
head coach and defensive
coordinator, NFC won a state
championship in 2001 and has
been a regular on the Taylor
County High schedule for the


past several years.
Boggs has a degree in
accounting from Florida State
University and did his
education coursework at
Lincoln Memorial University
in Harrogate, Tenn,
He attended high school in
Blountville, Tenn., and coached
at several Knoxville-area high
schools in the late '90s.
"After looking through our
applications and going through
our interview process we
determined that Coach Boggs is


exactly what our program
needs," Dyal said.
The superintendent said that
he and TCHS Principal
Michael Thompson believe
Boggs is the right person to
lead the program and rebuild it
back to where it used to be.
"I encourage everyone in the
community to step forward and
support coach Boggs and his
efforts .to move the program
forward," Dyal said.
The hiring of Boggs ended a
near two-month search that


The Taylor County Sheriff's Office asks anyone who can identify the women seen
in this security video photo to contact Det. Donna Lee. The women are linked to
a. credit card scamn.,that has targeted businesses in Taylor and surrounding
counties.


Noise from mud-bog prompts


calls for new noise ordinance


Eighteen months after county
commissioners approved a
noise ordinance for
Steinhatchee, the board is
considering an almost identical
one for the rest of the
unincorporated area of Taylor
County.
The latest ordinance was
prompted by a resident's
complaint to commissioners
late last year about noise from a
neighboring property which
was the site of frequent mud-
bogging activities.
The new rule would not


School district


to eye staffing


adjustments

Superintendent of Schools Paul Dyal presented a wide range of
proposals last week intended to help the school district overcome
a projected $2.7 million reduction in revenue for next year.
Part of his plan includes adjusting staffing at each school site,
with many of the recommendations based on guidelines provided
by the Florida Association of District School Superintendents
(FADSS),
The FADSS report includes administrative personnel matrixes
based on the type of school and the student population.
Dyal made a recommendation for each school, and said each
site's budget would be based on those recommendations.
Principals will be able to work with Director of Personnel Clyde
Cruce in making minor changes to months and positions, but will
have to work within the budget each is provided.
None of the recommendations have, been approved yet by the
school board and it is not clear when the proposals will be voted
upon by the board.
According to the proposal, each school would have a principal
and one 11-month assistant principal. Currently, the assistant
principals at Taylor County Middle School (TCMS) and Taylor
County High School (TCHS) are 12 months.
Although the titles in some are different from how they are listed
in the FADSS recommendations, the amount of administrative
personnel matches up. One notable exception is made for reading
coaches at each school, but those positions are funded through
categorical funds rather than the general fund, Dyal said.
He made similar recommendations for clerical staffing based on
the FADSS report.
For teachers, Dyal said the FADSS report recommended using a
staffing plan to determine staffing for each school. The included
plan, however "did not fit our needs" and called it confusing, he

affect the county's already
existing mud-bogging
ordinance which regulates
large-scale events.
Commissioners will hold a
public hearing Tuesday, March
17, during their regular board
meeting to solicit comments
from residents and decide
whether to implement the
ordinance. Last month
commissioners requested that
County Attorney Conrad
Bishop draft the ordinance and
last week they voted
unanimously to advertise the


document and hold the hearing.
According to the ordinance,
it will be enforced by
designated noise control
officers (including the sheriffs
office and code enforcement
officer) and noise will be
measured by decibels. A sound
level meter using the "A-
weighing system" will be used
to determine violations.
The maximum allowed
decibel levels are determined
by zoning and the time of day.

Pickled peaches, homemade chocolate
milkshakes and fresh fried mullet were staples
around the round wooden table at grandma's in
Shady Grove. Pears from aging pineapple pear
trees, purple grapes hanging in clusters from the
impressive grapevine arbor hide-out stood
adjacent to her thick colorful driveway fence of
mums and marigolds. These merely begin my
favorite memories of the summers spent as a
child in Shady Grove with my Grandma and
Granddaddy Sheffield.
Such are the memories that the yellow flies,
mosquitoes and "ground itch"--caught from
running around barefoot--have faded in the light
of joyous Shady Grove childhood summers.
Many of you may remember my paternal
grandmother, Annie Mae, who penned "Shady
Grove News" for two decades. And surely those

of you who do recall her generosity and warm
genuine embraces, also know that she was a busy
Southern lady of strong faith who enjoyed
people, her green thumb and having an opinion.
I loved my grandmother dearly and knew with
certainty that she loved me.
As a native of Taylor County (born at the
original Doctors' Memorial back in 1963) and
proud graduate of the prestigious Kiddie College
of Perry, I say "Welcome to my little column." I
proudly follow in my grandmother's creative
non-fiction footsteps.
My first home was at my grandparents' in
Shady Grove; I have returned to "the grove" and
am pleased to have found a home here once
again. So I, Deborah A. Sheffield, welcome you
to "Shady Grove Country"--a little news and
little reminiscing from Shady Grove.

counties, Dyal said his team
felt the plan used by Levy

.demographics.
Using the February FTE
counts, a preliminary staffing
count has been calculated for

At last week's school board

"Is this perfect?" Dyal asked.
"No. There are kinks to work

projected 15 percent reduction
in state funding programs,

which will total some $2.7
million.


Additionally, the district is
tasked by state legislation
passed in January to have a
three percent reserve
balance in its general fund,
which would total some

Editorial


B-2 Taco Times February 25, 2009


Superintendent thanks


local 'unsung' heroes


Dear Editor:
As we all face the crisis that
our economy is causing, our
school system is having to face
the reality of a financial crisis,
also.
I am sure everyone is aware
of funding cuts that are affecting
our schools, teachers, office
workers, lunchroom workers,
custodians, bus drivers, students
and parents. However, the
reason for this letter is to share
how two of our community
members have volunteered to
help.
I recently received a phone
call from one of our local clergy
who asked for permission
to open a bank account for


donations to help our district
recover the loss of funds due
to the lunch charges some of
our students have incurred.
This pastor wants to meet
with our churches and ask that
they donate to this account
to help those families who
cannot afford to catch up their
children's charges at this time. I
want to say "Thank You" to this
pastor and I am sure the families
that will be helped feel the same
way.
Secondly, I received a visit
from one of our community
members who said he feels led
to help the children of our school
district. He is a product of our
schools and wants to support


them. He has asked to remain
anonymous simply because he
is not in it for the notoriety and
because he wants to help. This
individual gave me a check
for $100 and said he will be
bringing one every month until
the school district recovers.
Again, on behalf of the Taylor
County School District, "Thank
You."
Our county is made up of
many wonderful "unsung"
heroes that are only interested
in helping. We need to let them
know that we know.
Sincerely,
Paul Dyal,
Superintendent of Schools
Taylor County School District


Dear Editor:

Taylor County High School
participated in the. National
African American Read-In on
Feb. 23.

Clayton.
These outstanding community
members touched our students'
lives with their presence and
with the words of the authors
they read to our classes.
We want to publicly thank
these precious individuals for
coming to our school to read


the powerful words of African
American authors.
Sincerely,
Michael Thompson,
Principal
Sandy Hendry,

The husband and I have been
stumbling through mornings
together for about 27 years.
You have to wonder if Unions
Made in Heaven don't typically pair
a "iln'rnilg.person ;.kitl'~ha'f "fi ht
person" so the two can be 24-hour
efficient, while living happily ever
after.
A friend of mine in such a
relationship has an alternate theory:
so the morning person can make
the night person miserable for her
entire life.
SYou pick your theory.
At our ,house, the waking
,preferences are blurred depending
on whether it's hunting season, the
day holds a shopping trip or we're
on vacation.
For the most part, however, we'd
just as soon sleep until we get
ready to get up in the morning,
and stay up as long as we can at
night. It doesn't always work that
way, given the demands of work
and school.
So last week, as I stumbled down to
the kitchen to make the husband's
coffee (it's the only caffeine I don't
love), I performed the morning
rituals of feeding the dog, raising
the blinds and starting the washing
machine.
And I returned upstairs to dress.
I may have passed the husband on
his way down the stairs, but I don't
recall.
I'm sure he doesn't either.
We next met at work.
It wasn't until after work that day
that I glanced toward the coffee
pot and noticed it was missing a
three-inch-by-three-inch chunk of
glass, below the rim. I found it both
curious and a cause for concern.
The husband soon arrived in the
driveway..
When he entered the house, I eyed
him suspiciously.
"Are you feeling okay?" I asked.
"Fine," he said, wondering if it was
a national holiday or why I asked.

Midweek Muddle


n I warm up that

'fee for you?
By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
I glanced again at the coffee pot
and pointed.
His eyebrows raised.
"When did that happen?" he asked.
"Before you drank your morning
coffee,1 It 'l~ said.
There was a bit of alarm in his
expression.
"You don't remember?" he asked,
as if I was trying to kill him.
Yes, it is hard to imagine that I
could fill the pot with water without
noticing a large hole in the carafe.
But it was early, and the hole was
just above the four-cup line, thus
making no difference to me or my
morning ritual.
"Well, do you remember?" I then
asked. "You had to pick the coffee
pot up and pour yourself a cup or
-two."
"You're right. Wonder if I'm
bleeding internally," he said, adding,
"I think I'll go watch the news."
In turn, I watched him through the
rest of the evening, much like I've
watched children with concussions.
He seemed fine. He knew who the
president was and could recall my
name too.
We ate supper.
He survived.
A couple of times, I asked, "You
feeling okay?"
He was getting suspicious; I could
tell.
As I loaded the dishwasher that
evening, I found the triangular-
shaped piece of glass which was
.missing from the carafe.
It fit the coffee pot perfectly,
like Cinderella's shoe, and I was
convinced--again--that I had found
my prince.
Well, that's the way I'd write it
if this was a fairy tale, but it's the
Midweek Muddle. The best I can do is
this: as soon as I can get to the store
and replace that coffee pot, we have
a better than average chance of
living happily ever after...today, and
maybe tomorrow, too.

The complications of diabetes often go
undiagnosed, and are far more serious than you
might think. Most people with diabetes also have
high blood pressure and cholesterol, which can
cause severe heart damage. In fact, 2 out of 3
people with diabetes die from heart disease or
stroke.

But it's not too late. You can reduce your risk of
heart disease and stroke by lowering your blood
sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol. Learn how.
