Huge pot crop confiscated


One of the largest indoor
marijuana grow operations ever
found in Taylor County was
discovered Monday evening,
July 27, and some 400 plants
ranging in size from seedling to
7-feet tall were seized.
The estimated street value of


the cannabis was $900,000.
"This was a very
sophisticated, climate-
controlled system set up in a
commercial size metal building
off San Pedro Road," Taylor
County Sheriff's Office
(TCSO) Capt. Ron Rice said.


Members of the Taylor
County Joint Drug Task Force
received a tip reporting
suspicious activity at the
location, When officers
responded to the scene, "they
had reason to believe that there
was a person inside the


building who did not belong
there," Rice said.
"A door was entered to check
the building and immediately
they were able to see that an
indoor marijuana operation was
set up."
Investigators obtained a


search warrant for the building;
during the search, they
encountered one suspect on the
premises, Donald A. Barrs, 22,
of Naples.
"He was inside one of the

State director



on hand for



EOC opening


Florida Emergency
Management officials joined
Taylor County officials, first
responders and residents at
ribbon-cutting ceremonies
Friday to celebrate the opening
of the county's new 2,800
square foot emergency
operations center (EOC).
Interim State Emergency
Management Director Ruben
D. Almaguer was on hand
during the ceremony,
congratulating local officials
on completing the new facility,
which is located next to the
Taylor County Jail on U.S. 27.
"Today is a great day,"
Almaguer said.
Taylor County's EOC is one
of 13 funded through a state
program initiated after the 2004
Hurricane Season to be
completed so far. Five other
EOCs are currently under
construction and seven others
have not been started.
The project was made
possible by a $773,774 general
revenue grant provided by the
state as well as $201,693 in
Federal Hazard Mitigation
Grant Program funds and
$176,032 in local funds and in-
kind services.
The structure has been built
to sustain Category 5 hurricane


winds and will allow
emergency management and
first responders to coordinate
their efforts following a
disaster.
During a senior leadership
briefing Friday morning before
the county commission, elected
officials and representatives
from every first responding
service in the county, Almaguer
warned them to be prepared,
noting that the peak of
hurricane season is Sept, 10.
He added that an EOC is not
just for hurricanes and other
weather events, but will need to
be ready to react to other
disasters, such as hazardous
spills, fires, floods, epidemics
and terrorist acts.
In the last 45 years, there
have been 63 federally declared
disasters in Florida, more than
in any other state except
California and Texas,
Almaguer said.
There have been four
nationally declared disasters in
the state in just the last 11
months.
Almaguer urged local
residents to get a disaster
plan by visiting

SStargazers will havew to be
quick to catch a glimpse,
though, as' it will only be
visible over Perry for a few
minutes.
Tonight (Wednesday), the
ISS will be visible for three
minutes beginning at 9:07 p.m.
It will approach from 42
degrees above WNW with a
maximum elevation of 70
degrees (90 degrees is directly
overhead). It will depart 12
degrees above SE.
Those who miss it will get
another chance Thursday night
at 9:31 p.m. for three minutes.


This time the maximum
elevation will be 14 degrees,
with the ISS approaching from
.12 degrees above WSW and
departing 10 degrees above
SSW.
According to NASA, the ISS
is one of the most visible man-
made objects in the .sky,
because it reflects sunlight and
often looks like a slow-moving
star. This can fool a casual
viewer, but it also makes
sighting the ISS easier if one
knows when and where to look.

County


to receive

$328,000



from state
Thanks to a state fund
established to help small
counties make up the impact of
property tax reforms passed in
2008, the Taylor County
Commission is close to
balancing its budget for next
year.
Commissioners held their
second budget workshop
Thursday evening, during
which County Administrator
Jack Brown said he had been
told by the Small County
Coalition to expect about
$328,000 from the state fund
for the upcoming year.
After the first workshop, the
county had been facing a
$330,000 shortfall in the
general fund between recurring
revenue and recurring
expenses.
"This is supposed to be a
recurring pot of money,"
Brown said of the fund.
According. to County
Finance Director Tammy
Taylor, property tax revenues
for the county are expected to
fall $400,000 next year, mostly
due to dropping property
values.
The county's gross taxable
value is expected to fall by $50
million to $1.35 billion, a drop
of 3.57 percent.
In early talks,
commissioners expressed a
desire to keep county millage
rates the same and find a way

a senior leadership briefing
for county officials and
representatives from local first
responding agencies Friday at
the newly opened Emergency
Operations Center. He
congratulated the county on
being one of 13 to have
completed the building, which
was funded through a
combination of local, state and
federal sources. Prior to the
official ribbon cutting, Taylor
County Public Safety Director
Jeff Manning (left) welcomed
the assembled officials thanking
state representatives for the
funding to construct a building

The B yd Report: H AYGO law

******** **** ** * ***


MARK MORGAN INC.


U.S. Congressman Allen
Boyd last week applauded
passage of the Statutory Pay-As-
You-Go Act of 2009 that would
reinstate statutory pay-as-you-
go (PAYGO) rules into federal
law, a longstanding priority of
Congressman Boyd's.
PAYGO is a "proven-
effective budget enforcement
tool that only allows Congress
to spend a dollar to create new
programs if it saves a dollar
elsewhere, thereby helping to
reduce deficits and spending,"
Boyd said.
"The passage of PAYGO
in the House is a tremendous
victory for the American people
and for those of us who know
that our federal government
cannot afford to continue to live
outside its means," Boyd said.
"We are putting our economy
and national security at risk by


allowing so much of our debt
to be held by so few, and we
are merely passing the bill--
with interest--to our children
and grandchildren. I believe
this irresponsible practice is
fiscally reckless and morally
wrong. While PAYGO is not a
cure-all for all of our economic
problems, it is an invaluable
tool that will help limit the
size of deficits, hold the line on
spending, and put our country
back on a fiscally responsible
path."
Throughout his years in public
service, Congressman Boyd has
been one of the strongest voices
for fiscal responsibility in the
federal government, and he
has consistently led the charge
to restore budget enforcement
tools, like PAYGO. This
commonsense principle was
implemented with bipartisan


support in 1990 and led to
balanced budgets and later
surpluses, until it was allowed
to expire by the Republican-led
Congress in 2002.
"Reinstating PAYGO budget
discipline has been a long-
standing priority of mine, and
today we are taking the next
step to make that goal a reality,"
Boyd stated.
"The House has acted, and
now the Senate must act as well.
It is time to put an end to the
out-of-control deficit spending
that has led our country down
such a fiscally disastrous path. I
will continue to work with my
colleagues in the House and
the Senate to see that statutory
PAYGO reaches the President's
desk."
The Statutory Pay-As-You-
Go Act of 2009 now awaits
consideration by the Senate.


Letters to the Editor



Resident complains that


codes enforced unequally


Dear Editor:
I can't take it any more
without expressing my concern
about continuing issues that
are not corrected within Taylor
County.
There are some residents that
are subjected to enforcement of
codes and laws while others are
conveniently ignored when they
do pot follow the rules. A recent
example of ignoring the code in
the City of Perry was explained
to me by the county building
official- -whom advised me. that
"his department does not handle.
building zoning infractions in
the City of Perry and that the
last he heard it was the police
department who did the zoning
enforcement."
A current code infraction is
on another property behind our
family property in the city. The
City of Perry Manager Bob
Brown advised me that Danny
Griner's department takes care
of the codes. It sounds to me that
someone is either uninformed,
or more likely someone doesn't
want to, or can't, perform their
duties for various reasons. What
a bunch of mumbo jumbo.
As a former employee., and
retired from the City of Perry,
I was referred to the City of
Perry Codes when an infraction
occurred. Knowing that building
and zoning codes are instituted
by the people as laws, then the


codes were enforced equally
for all of the citizens. The then
mayor and commissioners
encouraged the department to
follow the will of the citizens
codes. I have been advised by
the county building official
that the county enforces codes
only when a sworn affidavit is
received from the complainant
that a code violation exists. Is
that a form of intimidation?
That is a new one that I have
not read in our county codes or
ainy other county or city codes.
Why do rental and owner trailers
remain on residential lots at the
beaches for months past the 180
day county land development
code when officials know?
If I have to explain my


questions, it will be redundant.
I don't feel like it is necessary
for me at this time to list the
many infractions at the beaches
and city, and the continuing
selective code enforcement
throughout the county. I believe
it is past time for the citizens in
the city and county to demand
law enforcement for the people.
I am not afraid. There are many
good people and friends that
express their same concerns
to me. If you are afraid to put
your name publicly then write
'and request your name not to
be published, and stand up "for
justice for all" and do not favor
only a few. Where oh where are
you people ?
George Stamos


Johnson responds to

article on appointment


Dear Editor:
Last Friday's Perry News-
Herald article about Albert
Johnson's appointment to
the DMH board of directors
contained a major error.
The language ("after he
contacted several council
members expressing an
interest").
This statement is totally
untrue. I did not contact even
jajIMtMM.EIR


one person. One person came
to my home and asked me to
consider the appointment, one
stopped me and asked me to
consider because I had been a
DMH board member before and
county commissioner and had
considerable experience. Others
called me at home asking me to
consider the appointment.
I told each one who asked me
to consider the appointment, that
I appreciated their confidence
and trust and if appointed, I
would make my own decisions
based on knowledge and
experience. To simply clear the
air, I'm not obligated to anyone.
Albert Johnson

Inmate prays

for forgiveness
Dear Editor:
In the year of 2005,1 I, Joseph
Padgett, committed some
crimes against the city of Perry.
I was caught, tried and
convicted. I have now went on
and paid my debt to society and
now my fervent prayer is that
the city of Perry will please
forgive me of my wrongdoing.
Thank you, God bless all.
Joseph Padgett

Midweek Muddle
MEMME


I love seeing men in the grocery
store.
Wait a minute: I'm not
seeeeeeeeing men in the grocery
store in an inappropriate way;
I'm observing them in the grocery
store. And I admit, I get some sort of
sinister satisfaction from knowing
that in the realm of Equality For All,
they have to forage for berries and
nuts too.
What this equality brings to the
market is a closer look at another
market.
I witnessed two men discussing
the stock market, right over the
ramen noodles. That was deeply
satisfying.
Then I passed a man pushing a
grocery cart and that, in itself, has
to be a little emasculating since
the cart doesn't have a motor. This
shopper's cart, however, was loaded
with pink roses and balloons. I so
wanted to ask the occasion, but I
know my boundaries and I simply
smiled in admiration.
Even the Yates Creek boat ramp
was being discussed in the check-
out line, and it made me realize
that the world spins in overlapping
circles.
Just when I was feeling really
good about all this Equality For All,
a manfriend stopped me and asked
where in the world the pancake mix
was.
I should have said, "I make my
pancakes from scratch," but I knew
right where it was and gave him
directions he could understand:
"It's near the peanut butter," I said
slowly. All men can understand that.
He shook his head with frustration
and declared, "I'm going to send
Alice to the auto parts store with a


n who shop


By SUSAN H. LINCOLN

list and see how she does."
"Now, now," I said. "It'll be okay."
"Shouldn't the pancake mix be
over here with the cereal?" he
wondered logically. Aren't the
spark plugs near the wrenches?
Of course the pancake mix should
be near the breakfast cereal, but the
Marketing Powers That Be want you
to walk by 500 items on the way to
the pancake mix and get some wine
and jelly too.
In grocery stores, men are
inevitably lured to the meat counter
where they assume a primal stance
over the slabs of ribs and sides of
beef. After beating their chests, they
buy the biggest cuts available. I've
never known a man who can resist
an overly priced steak. Like hair
color for women, it assures them,
"I'm worth this."
Since the population of men within
the grocery store is burgeoning, I
tip my cart to them and personally
welcome all men who:
* squeeze the canteloupes and
kill the antelopes;
* fish for bass or buy potato chips
to pass;
* spear grouper or look for ice
cream that's super duper;
* fix the front end of a truck and
the rear end of a Boston butt;
* men who tee off at one and grill
at 7;
* men who slay mountain moose
or chill chocolate mousse;
* men who stalk redfish or shish-
kebab green peppers;
* men who front the shelves and
then help themselves.
The grocery store, to be sure, is
the final frontier for men, but it's
remarkably more interesting now
that you're there.

Ready for upcoming season


Girls participate in


Tally soccer camp


Present and future Taylor
County High School soccer
players attended the Warner
Soccer Camp last week in
Tallahassee.
Their trainer all week was
Darton College Men's Head
Coach Bart Sasnett.
"The girls worked hard all
week and a progression was
certainly evident," said Coach
Sasnett.
"Furthermore, I would expect
exciting things this year from
Taylor County."
Each morning started with
an 8:15 to 11 technical session.
Then a two-hour break for lunch
and back to the fields for a two-
hour tactical training session.
Each evening the girls would


play a game against other teams
to put their daily lessons to
good use.
"You could see the girls
improving their skills and
understanding of the game
everyday," said Taylor County
Head Coach Dara Nix.
"It was great experience
for the girls. They got a lot of
soccer in a five-day period. We
hope to do something like this
every summer."
Nix said the camp should
go a long way to help her
team this year--along with four
or five of her girls playing club
ball for Tallahassee United in
the fall.
"I'm excited about our
upcoming season," Nix said.

"Shuttle/station docking

chasing each other across the
night sky," officials said. "They
will follow the same flight path
varying by only a few


minutes."
The Space Shuttle
Endeavour undocked from
the ISS Tuesday, and is
expected to be visible over

According to NASA, the

Perry woman abandons

Stimulus Package after 5 years!
To whom it may concern:
July 23, 2009, I was told that she wanted a change and she was making it now! She said that
her lifestyle had not changed in the last five years since meeting me! So goodbye!
This is my answer to that statement!
I have installed used carpet and padding on her bare plywood sub flooring in the two bedrooms
and in the living areas. I installed three new outlets in the master bedroom for the TV and vanity.
I helped paint the outside of the house. I put up metal siding on the garage to prevent it from
collapsing. I have purchase two TVs and installed cable to them. I bought and installed a custom
shower assembly including a ceiling mounted curtain ring for her claw foot tub (she did not have
a shower prior to that). I bought and installed a laundry room clothes hanger and shelving after
!helping paint the area. I recently bought a used dryer. I rewired the bathroom for a fan, light and gfci
receptacle, required the new kitchen area, under and over head cabinet lights, installed a switch,
and shelving in pantry. I installed remote controls in ceiling fans and installed the sheet rock in
fthe new kitchen. I have paid for repairs to her Ford Explorer as well as new brakes and tires. She
'had use of a credit card for gas, doctors, miscellaneous, clothes, etc. I paid for her cell phone with
4i limited minutes. I bought her an engagement/wedding ring combo. I gave her a 1996 Pontiac
1irand-am when the Explorer tore up. I drove her and her family many times for family matters.
'We took trips to Denver, Cape Cod, cruised to Panama, Costa Rica and Belize, as well as a trip
to Hawaii. I bought a sleigh bed and mattress, table and chairs for the kitchen, etc. I brought her
flowers almost every time I visited her at her workplace.
I am still confused??? I had said that if I sold my place I could stay with her and we could save
up some money. Her reply was I don't think we could sit and look at each other more than three
days??? I mentioned that she could move in with me (over the bridge from Steinhatchee). The reply
was my work and the grandkids, etc. What did I miss???
Abandoned before getting to the altar???
P.S. Bless her, she returned the rings, house key, credit card and cell phone.
I hope she gets the changes she's looking for.
