School district


responds to


audit criticisms


While the 2007-08 audit of
the Taylor County School
District held few surprises, it
highlighted a pervasive
financial situation, including a
$1.4 million deficit that, in
part, resulted in the elimination
of some 50 positions last
summer.
During an almost two-hour
workshop held last week,
Superintendent of Schools Paul
Dyal outlined the school
district's responses to more
than 20 findings listed in the
audit for 2007-08, a year that
ended with the district facing, a
$1.4 million general fund
deficit.
According to the audit,
released by Florida Auditor
General David W. Martin in
March, there were 14 issues
with the district's internal


control as well as seven issues
with its handling of federal
grants and funds.
"During the 2007-08 fiscal
year, the district's general fund
unreserved fund balance
declined from a deficit of
$1,033,808.88 to a deficit of
$1,405,151.22, a, decline of
$371,342.34," the report stated.
"Failure to reverse the
decline of the district's
financial position could
culminate in an inability on the
part of the district to meet
current fiscal obligations, The
deficiencies noted in financial

Dyal testifies before

legislative committee


With Taylor County the only
school district in the state
beginning the year with a
negative general fund balance,
Superintendent Paul Dyal and
other district- officials were
called before a joint legislative
committee in Tallahassee to
testify.
Dyal. accompanied by
School, Board Chairman
Brenda Carlton and Finance
Director Vickie McManus,


Supt. Paul Dyal


spoke before the
- Joint Legislative Auditing
Committee on March 23.-
"Being the only school
district with a negative

the 2007-08 audit, along with
the financial difficulties for 05-
06 and 06-07, we were
requested to appear before 'the
committee," Dyal said.
"I was directed to prepare a
report on our budget recovery
plan, a report on how we plan
to finish the 08-09 fiscal year
with a three percent unreserved
fund balance as well as the
budget recovery- plan for 09-

district's audit (see related

findings and their
ramifications, Dyal testified
about the savings resulting
from following a number of the

Railroad Company (LOP&G)
station from the early
1900s.

Tedder details history

of landmark'Old Depot'
Editor's Note: Russell Tedder was an employee at the Perr,y
Station as clerk, agent and train dispatcher from 1951-66. Now a
resident of Arkansas, he returned to Perry this week to share in the
dedication of the newly.renovated "Old Depot." The following is a brief
history written by Tedder of the railroad station which was once the
center of activity in downtown Perry.
The Live Oak, Perry & Gulf Railroad Company station or
depot, which is being dedicated as Historic Perry Station, is
one of Perry and Taylor County's enduring landmarks. The
sturdy old brick building is the third permanent LOP&G
station at Perry. It was constructed in 1917 to replace a brand
new wooden station on, the same site that had been destroyed
by fire earlier that year after being in use for only three months.
The burned depot was built to replace the original wooden
structure, completed about 1S06, which also burned during the
previous year.
In the era before good roads, automobiles and telephones,
the fastest contact for local citizens to the outside world was by
'train and telegraph. Towns and communities like Perry were
almost totally dependent upon the railroad for freight
shipments, whether large (carload) or small (less-than-carload
or LCL). LCL freight was unloaded from boxcars into the
freight warehouse section of the depot and delivered to

and was -sent for a
mammogram and a sonogram.
A biopsy, an MRI and other
tests followed immediately.
The diagnosis was Stage II
ductal carcinoma in situ.
On Nov. 21, Beach had a
right radical mastectomy and a
left breast biopsy. When the
results came back, the left
breast had many cancer cells,
so it was removed on Jan. 14--
a second radical mastectomy in
less than two months. After
getting the lab results, it was
determined that she would not
need chemo, but would need
radiation because of the size of
the cancerous area. Beach
began radiation Feb. 23, which
lasted for five weeks until her
tissue became so raw that she
was given a few days off to
recover. At the time of this
writing, she still has seven
treatments remaining. During
the course of her battle with
cancer, Beach heard about
Hope Lodge in Gainesville--a
place where she could stay free
of charge while having
treatment five days a week.
"It's a really nice place for
anyone who is going through
outpatient cancer treatment.
My mom, June Lytle, went
with me and is such a blessing,"


Debbie Beach
she adds. "Everyone quickly
becomes like family." The
American Cancer Society Winn
Dixie Hope Lodge in
Gainesville has 48 rooms for a
patient and a caregiver, each
with twin beds, a bathroom, a
telephone and a sitting area.
There are six kitchens, a large
dining room, a laundry room
with six washers and dryers.
four TV rooms with a library
and a movie library as well as a
garden and a meeting room.
Beach said she could not have
made it through without God.

mother, the many prayers made

A-2 Taco Times April 22,2009


Tax-Aide helped 480 people


receive $450,000 in refunds


&


Dear Editor:
Now that tax season has
wound down, I just wanted
to thank everyone that
participated in the AARP Tax-
Aide Program.
First, of course, are the
wonderful volunteers that help.
Without them there would be no
free tax service to the people in
this community. Thank you to
the counselors: Holley Bankey,
Jean Farrill, Nancy Joyal, Doris
Lepoma, Patricia Lindsey, and
Betty and Tommy Mauldin.
They have to study the new
laws and pass the IRS exam and
also the AARP Tax-Aide test
each and every year.
The client facilitators
(greeters) also deserve credit:


Millie Meadows, William
Monroe, Shirley Ramirez and
Vannie Wetherington..
Next would be our wonderful
library, thank you to the Taylor
County Public Library. It is a
fantastic site for our Tax-Aide.
They are a great staff to work
with and always help us with
anything we may need.
The great plus for us is it
allows clients who are waiting
to have their taxes done to
browse through the books,
newspapers or magazines
and do Internet surfing in a
nice clean environment with
knowledgeable and helpful
staff. If you haven't been lately,
look them.up; you'll enjoy the
experience.


Last, but not least, thank
you to all the people in the
community that took advantage
of the free tax service offered to
them by the AARP Foundation
in conjunction with the IRS.
We have done this several years
now and it continues to grow,
mostly by word of mouth, so
for those of you who used the
service please pass the word
along.
Just to let ,you know we
served over 480 people and got
over $450,390 returned to the
community through tax refunds.
Great job everyone!
Sincerely,
Peggy Williams

,-* Please see page 3


Each year my college friends'
and I move mountains to get to
one another; this past weekend,
we settled on the side of one to
analyze the year gone by.
We were at Callaway Gardens
in Pine Mountain, Ga., where the
azaleas bloom magnificently
amongst golfers and artists,
birdwatchers and music lovers.
A sign at the entrance declares:
Callaway Gardens hopes to
provide nourishment for the
soul,.,,eonsolation, f or-the. heasxta
and inspiration for the mindd'
All I have to do is read that
statement and I feel better.
Nourishment for the Soul:
Two days away seem to sharpen
my focus on the important
things of life. If I don't take a
couple of steps backward, I begin
to -think ; that life is all -about
woik--school work, house work,
office work, yard work. Gardens,
all the way back to Eden, remind
me that important things happen
in peace and quiet.
Consolation for the Heart:
For women who grew up with
"happily ever after" stories
and The Cleavers on television,
it is consoling, indeed, to
recognize that all families
celebrate small victories, agonize
over tremendous defeats, and get
up the next day and try to act
normal.
Inspiration for the Mind:
I said with inspiration and
determination, I'm going to
go home and plant something.
I'm going to go home and paint
something. I'm going to go
home and register on-line for
that vacation, home they're
giving away at Callaway. When
I experienced that self-serving
thought, I slapped myself and
tried to become introspective
again. I'm going to go home
and take up art. I'm going to go
home and bake a caramel cake.
I'm going to go home and be
inspired. Everyday.


i the mountain
-.-

By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
Which means, of course, that
I'm going to fail. Everyday. But
I decided I'd rather die trying to
do more, than to live long and do
less.
Around my friends, I'm an
absolute philosopher.
We all are. It was just like having
tea with Socrates and Plato, in
heels with cute jewelry. We still
discuss ethics, mathematics (the
tip) and logic (how much should
you spend on a wedding?)
It's also,,o. qcgnslation for
the heart when you travel
with people who need to find
bathroom stops as frequently as
you do... friends who share their
make-up if you've left yours...
and track down the jacket you
left the night before. As a group,
there isn't anything we can't do.
We understand the wisdom in
Socrates' words: Be as you wish
to seem. We stayed up late, so we
slept late, we ate late, we walked
late, we talked late.
Peace and quiet evaporated
into comfortable chatter, but
returned again for the ride home
when I transformed myself from
a philosopher to an astronaut.
For the weekend, I had been
floating in space, although it
was now time to plunge to Earth
where all the details, which
drowned me before, would be
awaiting my return. That re-
entry to Earth's atmosphere
must give an astronaut time to
prepare to be different, to vow to
be inspired, to live with the big
picture in his pocket.
Still, when you land, it's with a
loud thud.
People are clamoring as you
come through the door.
"But you're a better person for
having gone.
You look at the stars differently.
The Earth seems smaller.
Your days seem more


important.
And, to be sure,
to go back again.


you can't wait

Today, at 5 p.m., Sadaytril Smith of Refuge House will speak at
Stewart Memorial A.M.E. Church "to help everyone to better
understand the impact of sexual violence."
Noting that experiences such as these can be among the most
"difficult and painful of all life experiences," Smith admits that
feelings of being overwhelmed, afraid and alone are normal, but
she urges victims, survivors, adults, teens and community leaders
to learn how Refuge House can help.
"We are available to listen, to care and understand, to talk to
others on your behalf, to discuss your options, to be there when
you are hurting and when you are healing," she said. "We wish to
improve awareness of sexual violence by educating others on the
dynamics of sexual assault.
"You are not alone. We are making our sisters' problems, our

District on the road to fiscal recovery Obituaries


AUDIT CRITICISMS
Continued from page 1
management control over the
district's resources and may
have contributed to the fund
balance deficits."
The audit acknowledged that
on June 3, 2008, the district
approved an economic
recovery plan which included
the elimination of
approximately 50 staff
positions and reductions in the
work time for 50 other
positions, estimated to
generate annual savings
of approximately $1.9
million.
Other measures approved by


the board included the
consolidation of bus routes;
payment of certain operating
costs, as allowable, from
restricted revenue sources; and
increases in various fees.
Dyal said last week that the
district had followed many of
the recommendations included
in the Florida Association
of District School
Superintendents (FADSS)
financial recovery plan and was
on track to end the year with a
positive fund balance.
The auditors also faulted the
district budgetary process,
noting that "although the
district's budget process
indicated that the original


budget was prepared and
approved in accordance with
applicable laws and rules, we
noted that on June 30, 2008,
prior to the school board's
approval of the final budget
amendments, the district had
overexpenditures, totaling
$1,389,742.31 in 12 functional
expenditure categories and
transfers out in the general
fund."
Auditors noted that a
$103,000 discrepancy was
found in the Head Start
budget, but Dyal said that a'
member of the FADSS team
had reconciled the books back
to 1996 and was unable to find
the problem.

also depended on the trains
which were the only means of
public transportation between
towns and communities up and
down the line and also to
connections with other rail
lines to destinaions around the
country.
-During the first half of the
20th century,- the LOP&G
depot on Soutl Jefferson Street
was an important and busy
place in Perry. It was the center
of activity in town, especially
around train arrival and
departure times. Meeting the
train was a fashionable social
"tad entertainment eveift wlieri'
people visited while awaiting
the arrival and departure of
friends, relatives and
acquaintances on the passenger
carrying trains, There was an
old saying that the railroads
carried everything from "LCL
to Aunt Nell," ineaning that
family members as well as
freight shipments large and
small and express shipments
arrived and left bn the train.
The station was :the local
office for the railroad. The job
of station agent was .a position
of great responsibility in the
community which enjoyed the.
respect of both the railroad and
local citizens. The agent was
the company's representative in
the town and good

relationships were vitally
important. He was the face of
the railroad and first point of
contact for local residents and
business people.
The agent supervised the
trains while in and around the
station and directed train crews
as to which cars were to move
when and whye. The agent and
clerks prepared shipping
documents such as bills of
ladings, waybills and 'freight
bills, and various reports
related to passenger and freight
traffic. The agent arranged for


the pick up and delivery of
LCL freight to and from local
businesses and residents before
trucking lines became
common.
Other duties included
collecting and depositing
amounts due the railroad for
freight charges, and selling
tickets to the traveling public.
An accounting of all money
received was made to the
company and accounts were
balanced at each month end.

Beau Turner, right, with Gov. Charlie Crist


Beau Turner will speak

at Friends of the Library

meeting Monday, April 27

Beau Turner, who along with his father Ted Turner helped
develop Florida's first privately developed conservation facility for
youths, will speak at the Taylor County Public Library Monday,
April 27.
Beau Turner will be the guest speaker at the Friends of the
Taylor County Public Library meeting at 5:30 p.m. Admission is
free and the public is invited to attend.
The Beau Turner Youth Conservation Center in Jefferson
County, just north of Capps, opened in March 2008 and is the only
conservation center in the state that runs entirely by solar power.
The facility, operated by the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC), provides youths the
opportunity to learn and develop skills that will encourage them to
get outdoors and enjoy Florida's abundant fish -and wildlife
resources.
Govenor Charlie Crist toured the site in February. "The center is
a wonderful facility where Florida's children can enjoy her natural
beauty while learning how to protect it. It is a reminder of the great
things we can accomplish for our environment by working
together--state agencies- and private organizations and
individuals--for a better Florida," he said.
The goal of the 160-acre property, leased at no cost to the FWC
by landowner Beau Turner, is to "create a conservation ethic
among children through programs designed to build confidence in
outdoor settings Ind greater knowledge of the local ecosystem and
wildlife management techniques."'
"In an age where we're competing against 'video games and
computers. it's important that we introduce our children to outdoor
activities and that our communities continue to protect natural
areas," Turner said. "If children have no place or reason to get
outdoors, then we may lose our next great naturalist."
The facility features a stocked fishing pond, nature trails,
managed impoundments for waterfowl, planted fields for small
game, a state-of-the-art rifle range, 3-D and Olympic-style archery
courses, and' a trap-shooting facility that throws biodegradable
clay pigeons.
"The focus is reaching out to kids who wouldn't otherwise have
access to these kinds of outdoor activities, and the reward is the
smiling faces of kids and parents who are developing a lasting
appreciation for conservation of Florida's wild lands and wildlife,"
FWC Commissioner Brian Yablonski said.
Summer classes for 12- to 16-year-old youths are available at
the center, where gun safety, archery, fishing, shooting, wildlife
management and other outdoor activities are taught. The FWC
provides all necessary equipment and materials, and classes are
free of charge. Youth hunts also take place on an adjoining 900
acres through the FWC's Youth Hunting Program of Florida.
"The Beau Turner Youth Conservation Center is a great example
of the significant impact private landowners can make by
encouraging conservation and environmental stewardship," Ted
Turner said. "I'm thrilled with Governor Crist's commitment to
environmental causes and to ensuring that our kids and grandkids
have a healthy planet where they can live, learn and play."

2241). Petitions filed by any persons
other than those entitled to written
notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S.
must' be filed within 14 days of
publication of this Public Notice or
receipt of a written notice, whichever
occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3),
F.S., however, any person who asked
the Permitting Authority for notice of
agency action may file a petition
within 14 days of receipt of that
notice, regardless of the date of
publication. A petitioner shall mall a
copy of the petition to the applicant
at the address indicated above, at
the time of filing. The failure of any
person to file a petition within the
appropriate time period shall
constitute a waiver of that person's
right to request an administrative
determination (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to
intervene in this proceeding and
participate as a party to it. Any
subsequent intervention (In a
proceeding initiated by another
party) will be only at the approval of
the presiding officer upon the filing of
a motion in compliance with Rule 28-
106.205, F.A.C.
A petition that disputes the material
facts on which the Permitting
Authority's action Is based must
contain the following Information: (a)
The name and address of each
agency affected and each agency's
file or Identification number, If known;
(b) The name, address and
telephone number of the petitioner;
the name address and telephone
number of the petitioner's
representative, If any, which shall be
the address for service purposes
during the course of the proceeding;
and an explanation of how the
petitioner's substantial rights will be
affected by the agency
determination; (c) A statement of
when and how the petitioner
received ,notice of the agency
action or proposed decision; (d) A
statement of all disputed Issues of
material fact. If there are none, the
petition must so state; (e) A concise
statement of the ultimate facts
alleged, including the specific facts
the petitioner contends, warrant
reversal or modification of the
agency's proposed action; (f) A
statement of the specific rules or
statutes the petitioner contends
require reversal or modification of the
agency's proposed action Including
an explanation of how the alleged
facts relate to the specific rules or
statutes; and, (g) A statement of the
relief sought by the petitioner, stating
precisely the action the petitioner
wishes the agency to take with
respect to the agency's proposed
action. A petition that does not
dispute the material facts upon
which the Permitting Authority's
action Is based shall state that no
such facts are In dispute and
otherwise shall contain the same
Information as set forth above, as
required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.
Because the administrative hearing
process Is designed to formulate final
agency action, the filing of a petition
means that the Permitting Authority's
final action may be different from the
position taken by It In this Public
Notice of intent to Issue Air Permit.
Persons whose substantial Interests
will be affected by any such final
decision of the Permitting Authority
on the application have the right to
petition to become a party to the
proceeding, In accordance with the
requirements set forth above.
Mediation: Mediation Is not
available for this proceeding.
