damage
Despite two doppler radar-
indicated tornados Monday
evening, Taylor County
escaped major damage from a
strong line of storms passing
through the area.
That's according to
Ta\lor County Emergency
Management officials who said
Tuesday that they had received
no reports qf tornado damage,
There were a number of
power outages as a result of the
storms, notably in the beaches
area, where a tree, fell onto
Beach Road just south of Dead
Man's Curve. Outages were
reported along Golf Course
Road and around, Hampion
Spring
At 7:23 p.m., the National
Weather Service (NWS)
doppler radar in Tallahassee
indicated a developing tornado
26 miles west of Perry moving
east t 40 mph. According to
the alert, numerous reports of
waterspouts were received
With the storm just south of St.
Marks.
A second warning followed
from. NWS about a possible
tornado near Dekle Beach.
Another tree was reported
down on U.S. 19 South just
north of Salem.
According to the NWS, the
Perry-Foley Airport received'
almost one and one-half inches
of rain from the storms.
The Aucilla River at
Lamont, \ which remains
above floodstage, rose eight
inches overnight Monday and
Tuesday morning. Other local
rivers rose slightly.
The NWS Southeast River
Forecast Center said Tuesday
the new rainfall is expected to
result in renewed flooding at
Valdosta, Ga., with the
Withlacoochee River. It is
expected to "only slow the
recession along the mainstem

to another suspect and are in
the stages of closing the
investigation. Anyone with any
information--no matter how
irrelevant they think it may
be--is urged to contact the
police department," he
continued.
The violent, targeted
attacked occurred around
midnight Sunday, March 15, at
the victim's home on West Ash
Street. The victim told police


that someone knocked on the
front door of the home and, as
he opened it, an unidentified
male, fired several rounds from
a handgun.
"This was not a random
attack. It was directed at any
member of the family who may
have gotten in the way of the
bullets or who answered the
door," Det. Dave Gorby said.
Two young children who
were directly in the line of fire


"were not harmed in any way.
This could have been a lot
worse," Cruse said.
The victim was shot multiple
times; his 17-year-old son was
hit by a bullet once in the arm.
"While there have been no
further acts of violence directed
toward the family, crimes of
'this nature affect more than just
the people who are injured. It
affects the entire family. They
are living in fear and dealing


with feelings of impending
doom," Cruse said.
Police are appealing to
anyone who may have
information to "come forward
and assist us in closing the
investigation for the peace of
mind of' the victim and his
family."

School district, teachers go



head-to-head on 5% pay cut


The Taylor County School
District and the Taylor
Education Association will
meet today (Wednesday) before
a special magistrate concerning
the current impasse over a five-
percent pay cut.
The hearing will be held at 9
a.m. at the Alton H. Wentworth
Administration Complex,
located at 318 North Clark St.
The cuts, effective Feb. 1
through June 30, began with
the March 13 paycheck for all
union personnel. The school
board had approved the same
cuts to themselves and non-
union' employees- in February
and Superintendent Paul Dyal
announced he would donate
back the five percent of his
salary over the same period.
On Thursday, March 12,
Dyal sent an e-mail to all
employees that the proposed
cuts for both the non-
instructional and instructional
unions would start the next day,
despite the fact that the district


had not yet reached an accord
with either bargaining unit.
The following week school
board members unanimously
approved the move during their
regular meeting.
The non-instructional union
elected to waive the special
magistrate and put the decision
in the school board's hands
during a hearing on March 19.
After listening to testimony
from both sides, the board
voted unanimously to continue
the pay cut to union employees
until June 30.
At that meeting, Dyal and
District Finance Director
Vickie McManus projected the
district would end the year a
$800,000 budget surplus with
the across-the-board cuts.
Without the cuts, the district
would have about $390,000 in
surplus.
When the cut was first
proposed, it was estimated it
would leave the district with a
small surplus if any.


Historic highs
The rushing, swollen waters of the Suwannee River flow mere feet below the
bridge in Branford. The waters have overrun the banks of the river and completely
cover a nearby park where only the tops of the picnic shelters can be seen. Local
residents are reminded to use caution when traveling to the area.


With the cuts, Dyal said the.
district should finish: the year
above the three percent surplus
threshold imposed in
legislation passed in January.
There was disagreement
between Dyal and union
officials over the repercussions
of falling below the thresholds


set out in the legislation.
After today's hearing, the
special magistrate will give a
non-binding opinion on how
the district should act on the
issue. Ultimately, it will go
back to the school board for a

Burglars targeting


unlocked vehicles
City police are reporting an increase in burglaries to vehicles
left unlocked while parked at homes and businesses.
The unknown suspects) are stealing car stereos and any
personal items left in the vehicle as well as money and loose
change, Perry Police Department Capt. Jamie Cruse said.
"There have also been instances where the interiors of the
vehicles sustained damages. Please make sure that your
vehicle is locked at night and no valuable items are visible
through the windows. Also, make sure your vehicle is secure
when you park it during the day."



AMVETS moving

forward with liquor

license application

The Taylor County Commission granted a waiver to AMVETS
Post 20 to allow members to apply for a state alcohol beverage
license for their new post home.
According to County Building Director Danny Griner, a
representative from the local AMVETS post approached county
staff and expressed the desire of the organization to serve alcohol
at their new location, 8839 South U.S. 19.
State alcohol license applications are required to include a
signature from the zoning authority stating the location complies
with zoning requirements for the sale of alcohol.
Griner said the property is located in the Agricultural Rural
Residential (AGRR) land use category, which does include
provisions for serving alcohol.
"County staff determined that the serving of alcohol would only
be considered as being in the proper zoning category as a tavern,
bar, lounge or nightclub in the mixed-use urban development
(MUUD) land use category or a fraternal lodge in the mixed-use

vote to either follow or reject
the recommendation.
In February, the school board
approved a five-percent cut for
all district and school
administrators as well as Even
Start employees and all grant-


funded employees not covered
'by union contracts.
At that time, Dyal said they
were extending the cuts to
these positions (even though
the savings will not help the
district's general fund balance)
in order to be equitable to
everyone.
Board members also cut their


own salaries by the same
amount.
In prior years board members
could not affect their salaries,
but recent legislation gives
them the authority to make the
cuts.
The estimated savings of the
five-percent pay cut district-
wide is $422,000.

"Based on this
determination, it was decided

One option discussed with

was an amendment to the
future land use map from
AGRR to MURR.

over this option based on the

be suitable for the area and
could lead to urban sprawl,"
Griner said in the
memorandum.
The second option was to
request a waiver of the zoning
requirement, based on the low
intensity of the use, which
was states by AMVET
representatives to be an
average of 15 attendees at most
regular meetings.
"Generally, a variance or
waiver would be heard by the
Taylor County Planning Board;
however, staff felt it would be
more appropriate for a waiver

to be decided by the

said.

The Wildlife Foundation of Florida
helps fund marine life conservation


The spotted eagle ray is one of the most beautiful creatures in the ocean and one of the largest rays. (Photo by Zig Leszczynski)



Florida's rays are majestic,,


graceful, shy and shocking


By FWC Staff

At least 11 species of rays inhabit
Florida's coastal waters. Some of them
are enormous almost 30 feet across.
One, of them can generate electricity to
stun its prey. Some have barbs that are
equipped with venom. All of them are
shy creatures that prefer to avoid contact
with people.
Manta ray
The largest of the rays is the manta
ray. The full-grown ones average about
22 feet from the tip of one of their pec-
toral fins (which resemble wings) to the
other (disc width), but they can reach
29.5 feet in disc width and weigh up to
3,000 pounds.
All mantas have two modified "fins"
called lobes that extend from the front
of their head just in front of their eyes.
These fins are actually used by these
amazing fish to direct water current into
I d0irf.ri'otth,~ "I can:tilter lout their
favorite food. Early scientists thought
that the cephalic fins resembled the
horns of a devil, thus the well-recog-
nized common name "devil rays." In
fact, the most common manta species
present in Florida waters is called the
devil ray. The devil ray is small in com-
parison to most other mantas, reaching a
disc width of only 4-5 feet.
.Mantas.'sometimes show up close to
sore. At other times, people see them
over the continental shelf and over reef
habitats, usually close to the ocean's
surface. They are often seen swimming
in schools, and they sometimes leap out
of the water and land with a huge splash.
Scientists aren't sure why they jump,
however some believe it is to dislodge
parasites that often attach to the rays'
skin. Others have speculated they may
use jumping to attract mates.
.Manta rays usually are dark brown,
grayish blu6eor black on top with pale
edges and %%hite underneath. Some, but


not all, mantas have a venomous barb
which is near the base of the tail on
the top surface. They live at least 20
years.

Spotted eagle ray
The spotted eagle ray is another large
species of ray that may reach a disc
width of up to 9.8 feet and weigh up-
wards of 500 pounds.
They have very long whip-like tails,
At the base of their tails spotted eagle
rays have one or more venomous spines.
Eagle, rays use the spines as defense,
against predators, such as sharks.
People see spotted eagle rays mostly
in bays, over coral reefs and in estuar-
ies. They like inshore waters, but the\
also show up in deeper coastal w aters,
Mostly, they swim in pairs or small
groups in the open water close to the
surface, and they often leap out of the
water-similar to their close relatives,
the manta rays.
. This is one of he most beautiful rays,
named for the cryptic spotted pattern
across the top of its body with small
white, bluish-white, greenish, pearly
or yellow spots on its black, dark gray
or brown body. Sometimes the spots
are large white rings with black dois in
the center. Eagle rays are t. picall\ all
white on their bottom side.
Cownose ray
Yet another ray species common to
Florida.is the cownose ray. It typically
grows to 35 45 inches disc width,
although there is a report of one reach-
ing 84 inches. Cownose rays will have
at least one venomous barb at the base
of the tail and typically are brown with
a whitish or yellowish belly and a broad:
head, eyes wide-apart.
This species has very hard tooth plates
and powerful jaw muscles that it uses
to crush various shellfish species that
it primarily .feeds on, such as clams,
oysters, scallops and crabs. They
often swim in large schools containing
thousands of individuals. These large

schools of rays when feeding can
Devastate local shellfish beds.

Lesser electric stingray
You can find the lesser electric ray
along the beaches and coastal waters
of the western Atlantic Ocean from
North Carolina to Argentina and in the
Gulf of Mexico. They keep to shal-
Jlow coastal waters, buried beneath the
sand or mud or in sea grass most of the
time, but they sometimes % entire into
water 180 feet deep.
.They have the ability to generate
an electric discharge of 14-37 volts,
which they use to stun pre\ and to
fend off predators.
This species does not have a venom-
ous barb. It is dark brown, light brow\ n
or reddish orange on top w ith irregular
rings or ovals. The underside is white,
yellowish or greenish.
Males grow to about 26 'inches
across; females are a little snialler.
Electric stingrays eat primaiilI
marine worms but also include other
invertebrates, juvenile snake eels.
anemones, small fish and crustaceans,
in their diet.

Beaichgoers should exercise
caution. Beaches and coast-
lines ure heree you find sting-
rays year-round.
The most common rays in
Florida coastal waters include
three species of whip-tail rays,
including the Atlantic sting-
ray, bluntnose stingray, and
southern stingray. Although
stingrays are actually very shy
by nature, they are equipped
with a sharp spine (or barb) on
their tail \\ which theN use as de-
fense against predators, such
as sharks.
... These rays also uise
camouflage to hide frLorm


predators-burying themselves
under the sand with only their
eyes and long spaghetti-
shaped tail exposed. That
makes them very difficult for
beachgoers to see. Unaware
bathers walking or wading in
shallow waters can step on a
ray resulting in being stung
in the leg or foot by the ray's
sharp, venomous spine.
To avoid being stung, bath-
ers only need to shuffle their
feet as they move across the
sandy bottom. Rays usually
sense the disturbance and
swim away.


Remember: heat to treat
A stingray's spine or barb is razor-sharp and made of a
hard, tooth-like material called dentine. It has notches on
both sides that act like a series of miniature arrowheads,
preventing the spine from backing out of a wound.
Most stingrays have a single spine, but some have more,
-from 1 to 8 inches long. The spine produces venom, and
anyone stung by a stingray should seek immediate medi-
cal attention. Medical professionals can remove all traces
of -the spine and flush out the wound with antiseptic to
prevent infection. Victims also usually require a tetanus
shot.
Also, soaking the wound in hot water (at least 113
degrees Fahrenheit) can bring immediate relief from the
painful effects of the venom. Remember the saying "Heat
to treat."

Ask the Fish Expert
Are stingrays fish?
Yes, they just look a little different. They don't have
bones just cartilage like you have in your nose and
ears..

What do you call a scientist who studies fish?
A scientist who studies fish is called an ichthyologist
(ik the aw low gist). "Ichthy" is Latin for fish;
and "ologist" means one who studies.

Do stingrays have wings?
What some people call wings are actually pectoral
fins that some species flap when they move through
the water. Sometimes when the pectoral fins break
the surface of the water, people think they are seeing
sharks.

Where is the stingray's mouth?
The stingray's mouth is on the underside of its body
with its nostrils and gills. Stingrays have strong jaws
and some have bony plates in their mouths that can
crush shellfish and other things stingrays like to eat.

Do people eat stingrays?
In some parts of the world, stingray is considered a
delicacy. Barbecued stingray is popular in Singapore
and Malaysia, and pickled stingray is a tradition in
Iceland. Some rays are considered endangered and
are protected.

'Dogs split two


weekend games


The Taylor County High
baseball team split its last two
games -- a 3-2 win over Union
County on Friday and 7-2 loss
to Madison on Saturday.
Both contests were make-ups
and were played at Perry's Pace

a single.
Top hitters for the 'Dogs
included Taylor Ratliff (2-2),
Wil Joiner (3-4, RBI), William
Wentworth (2-3), Colby Murphy
(2-3) and Morgan Pelt (1-2).
Wentworth went the distance
on the mound striking out six
while scattering six hits and
walking only one. '
In a must-win district matchup
Saturday against Madison, the
'Bulldogs managed only 2 runs
and one hit despite Madison
walking 10 TCHS batters.


Madison answered with 12
hits including a 3-4 effort by
Cowboy third baseman and
FSU football signee Jacobbi
McDaniel.
Taylor Ratliff got the start and
pitched three innings giving up
8 hits and 6 runs while striking
out two and walking 4. Charlie
Johnson pitched 4 innings in
relief giving up one run on 4
hits while walking three and
striking out one.
Johnson got the lone hit for
the 'Dogs, recording a double.

I am currently incarcerated
in a female prison. I have a

and will soon be returning.
As I look through "our".

I see all the wonderful things
going on the community. The
reconstruction of the Old Depot,
the new town clock, etc., I also
see how much Perry has grown
in the past year since I've been
gone. It's wonderful. I'm proud
: to live there.
However, what concerns me
is that I've searched the paper

We already have a difficult
time finding jobs when we
re-enter society because of
our records, yet we have paid
our debts to society for our

Maybe if we had some type of
program, who could help people
like myself find clothing, food
or maybe even shelter, we could
cut down on some of the crime
rate.
It's "ery hard on us and the

House Chambers. Retired U.S.S
Supreme Court Justice Sandra
Day O'Connor brought her
campaign for civics education
to Tallahassee, addressing the.
Florida Legislature about the
importance of teaching social
studies in American schools.
O'Connor, who was the first
woman appointed to the United
States Supreme Court in 1981,
retired in 2006. Since herr
retirement, she has focused on
pushing civics education, saying
she became increasingly aware
of the lack of knowledge many
people had about government
particularly the courts.,
In the coming week, Senator ,
Dean' will be working on the
Senate's version of the state
budget which is expected to be
voted on this week. In addition,
Senator Dean will have many
bills before various committees.

which creates an enterprise zone
in Lake City; SB 1468, Working
Waterfront Property, appears
before the Senate Finance and
Tax Committee; SB 554 on the
legal jurisdiction of campus
police will be before the Higher

On Easter Sunday, I found myself
boldly breaking one of the Ten
Commandments.
What'sworse, onMonday morning,
I found myself writing about it.
Confession is good for the soul,
they say; it's'not bad for newspaper
circulation either, I hear.
I chose to break the very
commandminent in the Top Ten that
even the un-churched find palatable:
thou shalt not kill..
Not murdering is, 'generally
speaking, a good idea. It's
something both Democrats and
Republicans can agree upon. The
Supreme Court can find consensus
there.
So why in the world would I be
boldly sinning on this high holiday
of the church?
Because people, even those who
are well meaning--as my dear friend
Mason Williams always said-- "are
no damn good.". That's why we
celebrate Easter, and the "do over"
we get over, and over, and over.
Yes, while the rest of God's
children were basking in that
grace as they hunted eggs and
enjoyed family, I was in peak Easter
sunshine, murdering carpenter bees
and thinking great thoughts, like,
"If carpenter bees came over on the
ark, two by two, I have no idea how
they kept it afloat." These bees love
wooden houses; between them and
the woodpeckers, I could one day
be homeless.
So on Easter Sunday, as everyone
else celebrated a season of new
beginnings, I tried to make sure
the carpenter bees wouldn't have
one. I had a broom, a fly swatter,
a step ladder and two aerosol cans
of flying insect spray--one for each

hand. All of that could be logged in
as physical evidence of the crime.
It wouldn't be difficult to establish
intent; I also had motive and
opportunity. After the fracas, which
involved me stumbling off the step
ladder while under the influence of
the spray, I'm pretty sure my DNA
was there too.
Yeah, I'm guilty.
For those of you who are always
horrified by my attempts to
eliminate wildlife (that would be
people concerned about the ethical
treatment of animals who don't
give, one whit about the ethical
treatment of humans), please know
that my sin turned out to be in the
sub-set of the Top Ten, and was
only attempted murder.
But in my heart, I was committing
murder and we all know that's what
counts.
So how should I be punished? I
could be sent to an island to live
quietly while drinking coconut
juice. (Please, oh please...) I could be
asked to wash cars as community
service.
Or I have an idea: that big, brown
lizard which must be nearing his
10th birthday at my house, could
run across my path while I'm trying
to annihilate the bees.
For that's exactly what happened,
and exactly why I fell.
And that's probably the
punishment meted out for those
people who, on Easter Sunday,
were not thinking good and kind
thoughts.
Yes, it is true, I'm "no damn good."
But I can assure you that no
animals lost their lives in the writing
of this column.
Even though I tried.

prizes. Another big thank you
goes to the Florida Fish and
Wildlife officers and Taylor
County Sheriff's officers for
their watchful eye on Saturday.
We have started plans for the

as our people looking to reenter
the job market.
Our 2009 project is in

historic stub bridge providing
covering, fishing capability and
a welcome area to sit and look
at our wonderful Steinhatchee
River. We also have projects of
interest in our medical facility


and our school and additional
parks.
We have much to accomplish
and we thank all who joined
our eighth annual Fishing

work possible and we hope your
