Knight indicted for



first degree murder


Sandra Lee Espinoza was 22 at the time of her
death.

To meet with legislators


A grand jury took only
minutes to deliberate and return
a first degree murder
indictment against accused
killer Kenneth Lee Knight, 48.
Chief Assistant State
Attorney David Phelps
presented the case to the grand
jury Monday, March 30.
"The defendant has been
indicted for first degree murder
in the death of Sandra Lee
Espinoza that occurred on or
about the 18th of February in
1988. First degree murder
carries possible punishments of
life in prison or the death
penalty," Phelps said Tuesday.
Knight is charged with the
1988 strangulation murder of
Espinoza, an Indiana woman


whose body was found along
U.S. 19. She was 22.
The former truck driver, who
was living in Mississippi at the
time of his arrest, had been out
of prison less than a year after
serving 10 years of a 20-year
sentence in Arkansas in an
unrelated murder. The
circumstances of that case were
"very similar" to the Espinoza
murder, Taylor County Sheriffs
Office (TCSO) Capt. Ron
Rice said.
*An overview of the crime
scene from 1988, the evidence
gathered and the analysis of
that evidence--as well as how
the suspect's identification was
obtained--were all presented

County commissioners travel to Capitol


By MARK VIOLA
Staff writer
With ,a plethora of new
legislation in Tallahassee which
could affect local governments,
the Taylor County
Commission, along with
county officials from across the
state, converged on the Capitol
last Wednesday for the annual
Florida Association of Counties
(FAC) Legislative Day.
It was a busy day for
commissioners, who jumped
from meeting to meeting,
hearing from FAC lobbyists
about legislation they think
could affect county

directly with state officials
about local concerns.
Commissioners Rudolph
Parker, Pat Patterson, Malcolm
Page and Lonnie Houck made
the trip Wednesday, along with
County Administrator Jack
Brown, beginning the day at
the FAC meeting.
(Commissioner Mark Wiggins


could not make the trip due to
work obligations.)
At the meeting, FAC
President and Alachua County
Commissioner Rodney Long
welcomed the assembled group
of officials, including the 86
new commissioners elected the
past year.
"Your presence can make a
large difference here on Capitol
Hill," Long said.
Much of the meeting was
devoted to FAC Legislative
Director John Wayne Smith.
who discussed in detail several
bills the association is lobbying
for or against.

the biggest concerns to counties:
is the Senate Bill (SB) 1906.
also known at Taxpayers Bill ol
Rights (TABOR), which would
put limits on the amount state
and local governments could
increase their revenues each
year. It would also require a
public referendum for any new
tax or fee, or to increase


revenues over the cap, which
would be tied to inflation.
"Inflation is the worst index
we could use," Smith said,
especially since the bill sets the


base line measure during a-
nationwide recession.
The bill was to be heard
again last week with Smith
saying he had spoken to six


senators who were prepared to
vote against it. When the bill
reached the committee,

$2.2 million equipment purchase goes to bid


The Taylor County
Commission will not declare an
emergency and forego its
purchasing policies as Doctors'
Memorial Hospital .(DMH)
officials look to purchase $2.2
million in equipment.
That was the decision
reached during a special
meeting held Thursday. The
DMH Board of Directors
requested the meeting after
discussing the issue during
their meeting earlier in the
week.
The commission approved
on March 17 using $2.2 million
in excess sales tax money to


purchase a digital
mammogram machine, a CT
scanner and an MRI. They also
agreed to use $500,000 to pay
off a USDA equipment loan
dating back to the hospital's
construction.
At the March 17 meeting,
however, it was unclear
whether the county would need
to follow its purchasing policy,
which requires going through a
bidding process, for the
purchase. The previous time the
commission used excess sales
tax revenues, DMH was
allowed to purchase the
equipment.

, --


. After consulting with the
bond council overseeing the
bonds through which the
county constructed the new
DMH building, it was
recommended that the
county keep title on the
equipment and then lease it to
the hospital.
As for the question of
whether the county would need
to use its purchasing policy, the
issue was deferred to County
Attorney Conrad Bishop.
It was his opinion that the
county would need to follow its
policies. He added that the
policy does include a provision

for declaring an emergency,
which would allow the hospital
and the county to skip the
bidding process. He continued
that it was up to the discretion
of the commission whether the
situation fit the policy's
definition of an emergency.
DMH Interim CFO Bill
Brynes urged commissioners to
declare an emergency, saying
the hospital's CT scanner had
broken down twice late last
year and was continuing to
have problems this year.
He added that the hospital
makes an average of $69,000
per month from the CT.


"If the CT were to fail
completely, $69,000 a month
would be gone," Brynes said.
"I'm talking about keeping the
doors open."
When commissioners asked
Bishop about the possibility of
declaring an emergency, he said
if the county was sued over the
decision, the burden would not
be with the county.
"The challenger would
have the burden to prove that it
was not an emergency," he
said.
Brynes said if an emergency

$21,000 worth of


mowers is stolen
Some $21,000 in Snapper lawn mowers was stolen from a local
business last week.
The burglary was discovered Friday and reported to the Perry
Police Department, which is investigating.
A South House employee found where a lock had been cut off
the fence surrounding the mowers. A search of the area revealed
tire marks where a truck and trailer backed up between the
building and drove the mowers onto the trailer, according to Ptl.
Garrett Campbell's report.
"There were two marks that indicated the unknown suspects)
made two trips to get the mowers," Campbell said.
The investigation is on-going and anyone with information is
asked to contact the police at 584-5121.


Girl, 13, bitten by dog
The Perry Police Department and Taylor County Animal
Control are investigating a dog bite involving a 13-year-old Perry
girl and a bulldog.
The dog bite occurred Thursday, March 26, as the girl exited her
school bus and walked down Hendry Avenue toward her
grandmother's house.
The girl sustained bite marks which required stitches, according
to the police report.
A dog has been impounded by animal control and the
investigation is continuing.

Editorial


A-2 TacoTimes April 1,2009


Clerk speaks out on



proposed court bill


Dear Editor:
This Letter to the Editor is an
effort to try to explain the recent
article in your newspaper, with
regards to Senate Bill 2108
and House Bill 1121, which
would transfer the court related
duties of the clerk of court to
court administration, an agency
headed by the chief judge of the
circuit.
The original framers of the
Florida constitution recognized
the need to separate the
courts from the business of
administering the courts, and
the office of the clerk of the
circuit court was established.
They recognized that the
purpose of the courts is to
administer justice, and should
not also be the administrators
of the court cases and processes
of those seeking justice before
the courts. The constitution
structure allows for a justice
system with checks and balances
for the people of Florida.
Judges administer justice
through opinions and rulings
that are based on facts. Clerks
tend to the business operations
of the court and provide
citizens access to the process
of justice, without an opinion.
Judges in the Florida Supreme
Court are appointed by the
governor and do not answer
to anyone because they do not
have to go through the election
process. State Representative
Ellen Bogdanoff and Senator
Ken Pruitt filed the above
legislation that would eliminate
the clerk's court related duties
and transfer all duties and


revenues from the clerks to
the courts. If the legislation is
passed, the independence of
the system would be removed,
and circumvent the established
checks and balances for the
justice system.
The supreme court has
conveniently failed to
communicate the true picture
of accountability of the
clerk's funding, expenditures
and inefficiencies, by trying
to communicate incorrect
informr-tion. The supreme court
has also created the Office of
State Court Administration
(OSCA), an additional
bureaucratic structure. They
keep adding to their empires.
The courts have added
an additional 110 judges
statewide since 2004, which is
approximately 22 per year, and
are requesting an additional
68 this budget year. Each
circuit has hearing officers,
magistrates, mediators, traffic
hearing officers and senior
judges, who also assist the
courts with finalizing cases in
our county.
An issue that is misrepresented
by the supreme court is that
clerks' budget increases have far
exceeded the courts' increases.
Seems that the supreme court
failed to provide the legislature
and you the citizens, with
the fact that they additionally
receive $395 million dollars
and several hundred additional
full-time employees, funded by
local governments statewide.
If you are analyzing the
facts, they indicate that court


budgets statewide exceeded
clerk budgets. Reviewing
the complete facts through
independent financial records
gathered from external sources,
indicate that court expenditures
have far exceeded clerk
expenditures since Revision 7.
Since 2004, State of Florida and
local government court funding
has increased 38.5 percent,
while the clerks' increase has
been 26.5 percent over the same
four-year period.
Passage of the proposed
legislation would be detrimental
to the citizens of Taylor County,
in having access to their court
system. The clerks agree that
a dedicated, stable, adequate
funding source for the judicial
branch of the government needs
to be established, which would
include Florida's state attorneys
and public defenders.
Florida clerks are doing
everything we can to combat
this bad legislation. However,
the public's help is requested to
put pressure on the legislature
to remind them that our court
system is not just about judges,
lawyers and administrators.
The court, like all government
institutions, was created to
serve the people, and the people
are best served by elected
officials.
If you would like to get further
information regarding the
proposed bills, please contact
your local clerk of courts.
Thank you,
Annie Mae Murphy
Clerk of Courts
Taylor County, Florida


Letters to the Editor


'Make sure your will is up-to-date,'


Dear Editor:
I would like to remind
everyone to make sure their last
will is up-to-date and stored in a
safe, well-known place.
I recently witnessed a loved
one who had passed away and
nobody could find the will.
Therefore, everything was left
to the husband. Six months
later, the husband died and


leaves everything to his kids.
While her kids were lucky
to get broken knick-knacks,
Tupperware, clothes and what
was left of the jewelry that had
already been gone through and
was missing several pieces.
This is what they have left to
remind them of their mama.
Her money was never used
to even put a headstone on


her grave. They claim to be
Christians that do the right
thing.
What they did may have been
legal in the eyes of the law, but
it was not in the eyes of the
Lord. I wanted to share this
story to help protect others from
the unbelievable heartaches this
has caused my family.

What a coincidence


As all shoppers know, there are days
when you wish your groceries didn't
travel down that long conveyor belt
toward the cash register.
Everybody behind you and those in
front of you can analyze what you're
buying. While in this position, you,
too, may have reflective thoughts about
"too much sugar" or the reality of your
love affair with name brands. Those
character flaws don't seem bother me
much when I'm selecting my groceries,
but they do distress me when I'm in the
process of paying for them.
One Monday afternoon, which was
running into Monday night, I found
myself rushing through the grocery
store only to buy ingredients for a
birthday cake. And strawberries to go
upon that cake. And a little ice cream,
too.
But you know how that goes. I walked
by the rice, and remembered I was out.
I picked up the son's favorite caffeine,
and decided I should get my own too.
Some Gatorade.
A box of cereal.
Fifty dollars later, I'm checking my
watch and scurrying to pay up because
the son's baseball game was scheduled
to begin in an hour. Instead of eating
supper, I would bake the birthday
cake which could cool while the team
hopefully heated up. Then that night,
when the team was victorious and I
could not longer focus, I would finish
the cake.
Days for women sometime stretch
into weeks, with very little notice.
So wouldn't you know that I'd end up
at that conveyor belt behind a gourmet.
This always happens. If I'm ever in
the presence of a gourmet, I find myself
holding Velveeta.
The check-out girl said to him, "You
buy the strangest groceries."
I felt I should come to his defense, so I


By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
said, "No, he buys interesting groceries,"
and with Southern appeal, I drew out
the word "interesting" for emphasis.
As the capers went over the scanner,
the cashier asked the man what he was
cooking.
In a sentence which sounded like an
advertisement for a five-star restaurant,
he said something like, "A creamy,
pureed white bean soup flavored with
wine, portabello mushrooms and
roasted red peppers, along with a grilled
sandwich smothered with provolone
cheese, pesto and artichokes."
We were all stunned.
And now, we were all starving.
That's when the gourmet turned to
me and said, "So, Susan, what are you
cooking tonight?"
For the first night in many, I was so
glad that I was heading to the baseball
field and didn't have to reply, "Meatloaf
and potatoes, or pork chops a green
beans." .
For, instead, I'd be eating a grilled
hamburger, compliments of the Baseball
Boosters. Suddenly, however, I wasn't
sure I should confess that either.
Instead, I stood there with a dazed
look, wondering if I should go into
detail--about how I was only picking up
a few ingredients for a cake--a box cake,
at that--or if I should preserve what
little dignity was left for me.
So after a long pause, while he paid
for his groceries and I searched for my
checkbook, I casually responded, "What
a coincidence; we're having the same
thing."
His eyebrows raised as he nodded
skeptically. "Is that so?" he said.
About that time, the Cocoa Puffs
traveled down the conveyor belt,
followed by a box cake mix, some rice
and a little gatorade.
Lying--like gourmet cooking--has
never worked out for me.

There's Bad News and Good News #3

Since my last writing our new President has been inaugurated, named cabinet
members, and proposed government spending that not long ago would have been
thought of as totally unbelievable.
The man seems to be floundering around and trying to be popular while doing some
very unpopular things.
Well, he chose to play this role during a period in our history when I doubt that
any of the other contenders for his office"could be doing much better. The-cards are-
stacked against anyone now who attempts to make sense of the inevitable chaos that
is a symptom of the radical transition that our world is experiencing.
The Good News is that the positive, creative Force mentioned in my previous writings
is at work on a cosmic scale. Our entire Solar System is in a state of change. The Sun
and Earth are both in the process of reversing the polarity of their electro-magnetic
fields. This is something that has occurred a number of times over many thousands of
years of Earths' evolution. At times polar shifts have been quite radical, however that
does not appear to be happening in the near future. Convincing evidence of a shift that
occurred many thousands of years ago is readily visible at certain sites in the Canadian
Arctic. Fossils of tropical plants and animals can be found well above the Arctic Circle.
Again, the Good News is that the changes that are currently taking place are necessary
to usher in a new era. The Thousand Year Reign of Peace, Love and Harmony is in the
process of being born.
Mother Earth is graduating into a new dimension of experience; a higher frequency
of energy vibration that is in harmony with the new Spiritual dispensation that is upon
us. The bad news is that adjusting to this new level of awareness, consciousness, takes
quite a bit of effort on the part of each individual.
Those who are still totally involved with the distractions, and pastimes of the
technological age; living "Soap Opera" lives on an emotional/intellectual level will grow
increasingly uncomfortable in the coming days. It isn't just the fears created by the
economic crisis, or the threats of international terrorists that I'm speaking of, but an
inner sense of foreboding that isn't understood.
As I stated in my previous writings, now is the time to get our Spiritual lives in order;
the time to put behind us the things which do not contribute to our sense of inner
peace and well-being.
Our Elder Brother once said, "He who would have his life shall lose it; but he who
would give up his life, shall find life everlasting."
I don't know how many people truly understand the message that he meant to
convey in that statement, but I will say that at this time, it is of utmost importance.
Those people who consider themselves Christians have for many hundreds of years
looked forward to the "Second Coming" of the Christ. Other religious groups around the
world also have expectations of an ending of this era and the beginning of another.
The "Second Coming", is approaching, I sincerely believe, but not in the way that
most would visualize.
Our Elder Brother once said to his followers, I am in thee, and thou art in me."
He was referring to the wonderful fact that the divine spirit that expressed through
him also lives deep in the heart of every man just waiting to be nurtured and brought
forth. No matter how deeply it is buried in years of wrong thinking, mistaken beliefs,
guilt producing acts and destructive attitudes it will fill the person who seeks it with a
cleansing, purifying light.
The future for such a person, no matter how many earth changes occur, is guaranteed
to be beautiful.
Thankfully, I know there are thousands of you who know these things without my
telling you, but I feel compelled to share the "Good News" with some who might not
have heard.
Love, Peace, and Harmony
John D. Alexander

Taylor braces



for heavy rains

While Taylor County escaped unscathed last weekend as severe
weather passed through the area, the National Weather Service
(NWS) has an advisory about the possibility for additional storms
today (Wednesday) and Thursday.
According to the advisory, the weather was to arrive Tuesday
afternoon with the evening bringing the greatest potential storms
producing damaging flooding across the region along creeks,
streams and rivers.
The advisory also warned that the frontal system could stall
today (Wednesday), leaving heavy rainfall across southwest
Georgia and the Florida Big Bend region.
A second system is expected to arrive Thursday, bringing yet
another threat for heavy rain and strong to severe thunderstorms to
the North Florida area Thursday and Thursday night before' the
front pushes through the area by Friday morning.
Current rainfall projections call for a widespread 2-4 inches of
rain across all of North Florida through today, but some areas of
the Florida Panhandle and Big Bend could receive as much as 5-8
inches of rainfall over the next 48 hours. An additional 2-4 inches
of rain on Thursday could bring -storm total rainfall amounts
over the next 3 days to 8-14 inches across portions of North
Florida.
Taylor County Emergency Management Coordinator Steve
Proctor urged residents to keep informed as forecasts are updated.
Last weekend, the NWS reported around 1.5 inches of rain at the
Perry-Foley Airport, while the rain gauge at the Division of
Forestry station had nearly two inches.
According to Proctor, the only damage reported to his office was
some downed limbs.
,A tornado was reported in Dixie County Saturday evening.












Copper wire stolen from mill
The Taylor County Sheriffs Office is investigating the theft of
a large spool of copper wire from the mill at Buckeye.
The theft was reported Sunday, March 29, and anyone with
information is asked to contact Inv. Donna Lee at 838-3505.
Callers may remain anonymous.

Warning issued on asphalt company
The Perry Police Department has issued a warning regarding
an asphalt company coming into town on weekends and
soliciting business door-to-door. The department has received
several complaints and residents are urged to use caution.


Profit margin incentive for

lawsuit against the county?


EQUIPMENT PURCHASE
Continued from page 1
was declared, the hospital
could have the CT in as soon as
60 days.
Bishop, however, said that
since DMH officials wanted to
purchase all three pieces of
equipment from the same
vendor, the amount of money
involved, and the substantial
profit for the company
chosen, would make the
county an attractive target for a
suit.
As opinions among the board
began to sway away from
declaring an emergency,
commissioners asked how they
could expedite the bidding


process.
Bishop recommended
advertising the request for
proposals (RFP) as soon as it
was ready and set the time to
respond as short as possible as
is allowed by the county's
policy and state law.
Commission Chairman
Rudolph Parker said he would
be willing to call another
special meeting if necessary to
receive the bids once they had
been received.
Commissioners then
unanimously voted to instruct
county staff and Bishop to
assist the DMH board in
drafting the RFP and begin
advertising it as soon as it was
ready.


Knight was linked to

crime by DNA evidence


MURDER
Continued from page 1
first degree murder. Now we
prepare for trial," Rice said.
He added that his office is
looking at several other similar
cases in Florida and other states
which may be linked to Knight,
who is being held without
bond at the Taylor County
Jail.


DNA found on items
collected during the initial
investigation led investigators
to Knight. (His DNA was
entered into the national
database following his
Arkansas murder conviction.)
At the time of her death,
Espinoza was married and had
a young daughter.


'Wilber Miller Day' declared
Korean War veteran Wilber Miller was honored during a surprise ceremony held Saturday, March 14,
at Loughridge Park. Mayor Emily Ketring proclaimed the day "Buffalo Soldier Sergeant First Class
Wilber Miller Day" before the crowd of family and friends. Miller has lived in Taylor County since 1967
and was married to the late Georgia May Miller for 37 years. He rose to the rank of sergeant first class
as a Buffalo Soldier from '1950 to 1960. He continued to serve his community as a member of Shiloh
Baptist Church, Taylor County Leadership Council, Worldwide NAACP and the Democratic Party
Committee. Miller, center, is shown above with members of the Tallahassee chapter of Buffalo Soldiers.




Commissioners meet with Dean, Bembry


CAPITOL
Continued from page 1
however, any decision was
delayed until today
(Wednesday).
Another bill Smith spoke
about was SB 360, which
proposes a number of changes
to the state's growth
management system. One
provision, which only affects a
number of large counties and
cities, would mandate the
creation of transportation
concurrency exemption areas
which would exempt new
developments from such
concurrency requirements.
Several commissioners in
affected counties said it took
the power away from local
authorities.
A similar bill has been
introduced in the House (HB
7049), which also allows for
such exemption areas, but
leaves the decision in local
hands. The bill would also
dismantle the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs, moving its community
planning divisions to the
Department of State.
Another bill, which could
affect Taylor County, would
expand the Small County
Outreach Program (SCOP) to
allow for the paving of unpaved
roads and bridge work.
In addition to legislation,
another concern for local,
officials is the federal stimulus
bill and how much funding
could be heading to Taylor
County.
Speaking at the FAC
meeting, Gov. Charlie Crist's
"stimulus czar" Don Winstead
said Florida was expecting
$14.7 in funds.

Speaking on behalf of
smaller counties, one Gadsden
County commissioner said the
problem such counties were
facing with the "shovel ready"
requirement is that they cannot
afford to complete the
engineering requirement for
such pjijectts oi the hbpe
that they might receive
funding.
This is compounded by a
strict deadline required when
receiving stimulus funds,
Winstead added.
For lunch, the Taylor County
commissioners, minus
Patterson, who left feeling
unwell, took a shuttle van to the
Governor's Club, where the
Small County Coalition held its
meeting.
The coalition represents 38
Florida counties with less than
150,000 people.
At that meeting,
commissioners heard from a
variety of state legislators, a
number of whom received
recognition for their work
helping small counties.
Rep. Leonard Bembry,
whose district includes Taylor
County, thanked the
commissioners for traveling to
Tallahassee, adding that "your
presence here is very
important."


"Don't think that you
represent small counties. You
represent the majority of
Florida," said Rep. Charles E.
Van Zant.
One of the representatives
recognized was Perry native
Ralph Poppell, who represents
paits of Btevard atid Indian
River counties.
"When we go looking for
common sense answers, we go
to you," Poppell said to the
gathered county
representatives.
After lunch, commissioners
went to the state capitol, where
they met with Sen. Charles
Dean.
The subjects discussed
included TABOR as well as
bills requiring an additional
certification for emergency
management directors and
more hours for volunteer


firefighters.
The latter two bills appeared
to be heading for defeat,
according to one of Dean's
aides.
The short meeting was
followed by a quick walk tc the
opposite side of the capitol
building to speak with Bembry.
There they again voiced their
concerns over a number of
proposed bills.
Bembry added some news of
his own, saying the money to
keep Forest Capital State
Park was still in budget at that
time.
When the meeting
concluded, it was time to leave
the bustle of Tallahassee and
return to Taylor County, but
until the legislative session
concludes, local officials will
be keeping an eye on Capitol
Hill.

Supervisors Catherine Bethea, Joy Towles Ezell, Randy Hathcock,
