McCarthy

pleads guilty,

sentenced

to 15 years

Kendall McCarthy, 48, pled
guilty as charged to DUI
manslaughter last Thursday,
Sept. 3, and was sentenced to
15 years in prison.
The charge stemmed from
the death of his girlfriend,
Laura Barineau, 40, whose
body was -found lying in the
middle of Central Avenue in
Steinhatchee the night of Jan.
31.
The mangled remains of
Barineau's bicycle were also
found in the area of the
roadway as well as vehicle
debris.
The initial 911 call reporting
the incident originated from
McCarthy, who stated that a
woman had fallen off her
bicycle and was injured.

Changes to

homestead

exemption?
The annual tradition of
mailing back your homestead
exemption cards could be a
thing of the past if the Taylor
County Commission approves
a new ordinance.
The board will hold a public
hearing next month to consider
the ordinance, which was
requested by Taylor County
Property Appraiser Bruce
Ratliff.
Florida statutes allow
commissions to waive the
requirement for an annual
application for tax exemptions
(once the initial application has
been made and approved) upon
the request of the local
property appraiser. The
ordinance would also apply to
annual applications for
agricultural classifications.
Ratliff estimated more than
70 percent of the county is in
agriculture.
Currently, property owners
must return the cards to the
property appraiser's office or
lose their exemption or
classification.
According to Ratliff,
prouprtNi "bWners would still
receive their cards if the
ordinance is passed, but they
would not be required to return
them unless there was a change
to the property or the person
was no longer homesteaded
there.
"The responsibility is on the
land owner to notify us if there
had been a change," Ratliff
said.
Taylor and Jefferson
counties are the only two

and Ptl. Garrett Campbell being
the first officers to arrive onl
scene.
Ptl. Kyle Johnson and his K-
9 partner Rocko were also
dispatched to the shopping
plaza, which is located across


from the U.S. Post Office on
Jefferson Street.
"They lost the track on the
road, indicating that the suspect
possibly went to a waiting
vehicle," Capt. Jamie Cruse
said.


The suspect broke out the
bottom pane of the front door
window, gaining entrance at
that point.
"He or she did gain entry into
the store and some items were
stolen," Cruse said.


Det. David Gorby is handling
the investigation.
Anyone with information is
asked to call the police
department at 584-5121.

Oregon running back
sensation LeGarrette Blount
has been suspended for the
remainder of the season
following a postgame punch to
the jaw of Boise State
defensive end Byron Hout.
The former Taylor County
High player was walking off
the field at the end of the
Ducks' 19-8 loss Thursday
night when Hout ran up, hit
him on the shoulder pad and
yelled in Blount's face. Blount
turned and struck Hout as
Boise State Coach Chris
Petersen tried to pull Hout
away.
The incident was broadcast
nationwide on ESPN.
Shortly after the incident,
ESPN interviewed Blount.
"I just apologize to all of our
fans, all of Boise's fans. It was
something that I shouldn't have
done. I lost my head," Blount
said.
On Friday, Oregon Coach


Chip Kelly suspended Blount
for the remainder of the season,
thus ending his college career.
Blount was projected to be a
top draft pick in the NFL going
into his senior season. It was
unclear how Thursday's events
might impact his future.
Kelly allowed Blount to keep
his scholarship and practice
with the team for the rest of the
season. However, Blount did
not attend Monday's practice
session.
As for Hout's instigation of
the incident, Petersen said he
will not suspend him but will
punish his player in other ways.
Blount called Petersen and
Hout over the weekend to
apologize.
Local reactions were varied
but most talked to by the Taco
Times felt the full-season
suspension was too harsh.

Neighbors upset over uncut lawn


Dear Editor:
We are coming to you in
hope something can be done
regarding a situation that is
becoming worse by the day.
We have a neighbor who
refuses to mow his lawn, which
is 'well over a foot high.
All our neighbors are keeping
- eir yards, .in, good, shape
tK prevent biting gnats and
mosquitoes. There have been
three different gardeners in


just the past week alone asking
permission to clean up the yard.
He refuses saying he will do it.
Must we live in, this biting
mess caused by gnats and
mosquitoes. We can't go outside
without being attacked. It seems
neither the city and the landlord
either will not or can't force the
r S ol ^ . .. . . , . . C-
, We are tired of the biting and
the unsightly mess and the "city
ordinance" leaves much to be


desired. This isn't helping to
"Keep Perry Beautiful."
We are simply asking for
help two-fold: keeping a health
situation frorp getting worse
and a potential health problem
in the future.
Must we go to the mosquito
control and the health
department to get somethingg
accomplished?
Thank you,

FWC chairman talks pythons


Dear Editor:
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) initiated a program on
July 17 to help stop the spread
of Burmese pythons in Florida.
This program is only the first
step in our efforts to stop the
spread of these invaders.
We issued permits to 13
python experts to capture and
euthanize any reptile of concern
found in specific state-managed
lands in South Florida. This
initial program will run until
Oct. 31, at which time we will


consider expanding it. So far, the
permit holders have captured 17
pythons and provided us with
data on location, size and habits.
We are encouraged that the
permit holders have captured
that many pythons. Each python
removed means one less python
in the wild and one less python
with the potential to reproduce
100 eggs in a season. While
there are thousands of pythons
in South Florida, the majority
of the population occurs in
Everglades National Park,
which is not a part of our permit


program.
The state-managed lands
where pythons may be captured
under this new permit program
represent the northern-most
range for Burmese pythons. To
destroy even one of these non-
native invasive reptiles is a
victory in the battle to stop the
spread of pythons elsewhere in
Florida.
We anticipate many more
pythons will be captured as
the weather cools and pythons
come out to sun themselves
during the day.
But we haven't limited our
python removal efforts to the 13
experts; we've expanded them
to include hunters. It's a natural
step because, historically,
hunters have been instrumental
in conserving wildlife across
this great country. Beginning
with the first hunt of the 2009-
2010 season, hunters on specific
wildlife management areas
in South Florida may take
any reptile of concern they
encounter during the course
of their hunting excursion. If
it's archery season, they may
take a python with a bow and
arrow and any other instrument
that's legal to possess on the
area during that season. If it's
muzzleloader season, they may
use that type of gun to take
the species. This special order,
issued by the FWC's executive
director, includes alligator
hunters on these state-managed
areas.
We are asking the hunters to
provide information about any
reptiles of concern they kill in

Midweek Muddle


Writer's block


By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
I had just enjoyed a seafood dinner required for the laboratory test.
this weekend when a teacher in one She , was embarrassed and
,pf, our schojls.stppged 4, as, I . .�l� bu li 4j4rim^i
leaving the restaurant. ,, . that honesty is the best policy, so she
"Make sure you write a really good explained her dilemma to the medical
column this week," he said. "My assistants in charge. They, however,
students are studying writing styles have strict rules. If she were to leave
and I told them we'd look at your at that moment, the circumstances


column on Wednesday."
I smiled and made small talk as I
listened to my heart fall from my
chest cavity to my shoes.
Don't ever tell me--or any other
writer--that the next column, or the
next paragraph, or the next sentence,
needs to be my best ever, or I'll
freeze like students do before the
annual FCAT test which determines
graduation.
To writers, this is what you call the
Kiss of Death.
And on Friday night, I was kissed.
Since that evening, I've thought
about all my Labor Day weekend
experiences which might produce
newspaper column material:
scalloping for the final time in 2009,
sleeping late, working in the yard,
running from a newfound wasp nest
while working in the yard, counting
my steps at the Taylor County Sports
Complex, visiting Hampton Springs,
eating ribs, washing clothes and
watching birds.
What did I come up with?
Nothing.
Absolutely Nothing.
Then I realized this is precisely
what some students experience when
they're told to write.
They experience Nothing.
Absolutely Nothing.
So this is a tribute to Nothing, and
how to save yourself from it.
I started thinking of ways to explain
writer's block to those who are
fearless and have never experienced
it. I immediately thought of a dear
friend who recently underwent a drug
test to satisfy requirements for a new
job. She went to the local hospital and
found that she was unable to produce
as many ounces as the sample


would be "suspicious" and they'd
have . to report the behavior to her
potential employer.
So she had to start over.
Worse still, her entire future now
depended upon a bodily function
which few of us consider noteworthy.
Or consider at all.
But she sat in that waiting room
for nearly two hours, drinking water,
water and more water.
The nurses kept inquiring, "Are you
ready now?"
"I don't know..." she said, her heart
having already descended from her
chest cavity to her shoes.
"Well, we'll wait a little bit longer,"
they said with compassion, assuring
her that this happens...and happens
frequently. Not to worry. It will all
be okay.
Finally, after 90 minutes and enough
water to sustain a small country
in South America, the appropriate
sample was produced and cleared by
the laboratory.
Glory, hallelujah.
Yes, it was a simple drug test.
Yes, it was an ordinary afternoon in
early September.
But it was a reminder that writer's
block, like medical anxiety, and
test anxiety are normal, frightening
experiences that you slay like
dragons.
It may take two hours.
It may take a gallon of water.
It may take an FCAT re-take.
But be dramatic and be confident.
Applaud yourself for your small
victories and remember: that which
doesn't kill you, only makes you
stronger.
And sometimes, you can write
about it.

to victim's

family
MCCARTHY/GUILTY
Continued from page 1
Office Deputy Thomas Gunter
was the first to arrive on scene
and found the victim
"unconscious and
unresponsive." Barineau was
pronounced dead at the scene,
which was less than one mile
from McCarthy's home on
Central Avenue.
When officers located
McCarthy's vehicle, they found
that it had damage which
matched debris found at the
scene.
Although McCarthy did not
issue an official statement
during Thursday's hearing, he
turned to face members of
Barineau's family who were
present and apologized.
He will begin serving his
prison sentence "immediately,"
Assistant State Attorney Dave
Phelps said.
McCarthy was also
sentenced to five years
probation on a second charge
of leaving the scene (where a
death was involved).

"The North Florida Fugitive
Task Force was instrumental in
locating and capturing two
suspects from Perry wanted in
connection with a recent
shooting. We also found out
that our officers could become
members of the task force and
help other agencies the way the
task force helped us. All of the
necessary paperwork was
completed and the three
officers were sworn in today,"

family friend, Randy Newman,
said Blount has "manned up
and accepted responsibility."
"You don't build character
during good times. You build
character during the bad times.
He has to see this as a
character-building experience,"
Newman said.
Newman said Blount is still
the person he's always known
and "probably needs us now
more than ever."
Earlier this year, Blount was
named to three pre-season
awards watch lists.
He was one of 30 players

back.
As a junior at Oregon,
Blount came off the bench to
rush for 1,002 yards and set a
school record for rushing
touchdowns in a season (17).
His 7.3 yards per carry average

Econfina joins ranks as

a 'golf cart community'
The area outside the entrance of Econfina State Park has become
the latest location in the county to allow golf carts.
Commissioners unanimously approved an ordinance last week
allowing golf carts on Econfina River Road, from the entrance of
state park out for a length of two and two-tenths miles.
The move came only two months after the board approved a
similar ordinance allowing golf carts on most roadways in
Steinhatchee.
Commissioners held a public hearing on a new ordinance, but no
one spoke for or against it, although one man thanked the board
after the vote.
The Steinhatchee decision followed one from earlier this year
for the Spring Warrior area. There are similar designations for
several locations in the Beaches area as well.
A violation of the ordinance will be considered a non-criminal
traffic infraction.

Letters to the Editor


Chairman: 'Never


release a non-native

animal into the wild'


FWC CHAIRMAN
Continued from page 2
order to compile more
complete information about the
species.
"Burmese pythons have
invaded our native habitat, at
least partly, because of people
releasing them into the wild,
We urge people with an exotic
non-native pet they can no
longer keep, to turn in the
reptile at Pet Amnesty Days
held around the state. The next
one is scheduled for Nov. 7 in
the Tampa area. No matter
what--never release a non-
native animal into the wild.
The FWC takes its
responsibility for managing
fish and wildlife seriously, and
our priority always will be
protection and conservation of
native species. The difficult
challenges already facing
native wildlife--habitat loss
and human population
increases--are compounded by
the threat of Burmese pythons
being loose in the wild.
Discussions are conti#ilihg
on how best to manage the
Burmese python problem, and

Mann graduates,
enters seminary
Rebecca Mann Wallace, the
daughter of the late Dean and
Mary Mann of Perry, received
her B.S. degree in history from
Troy University (Montgomery
Campus) on May 18.
The commencement was
attended by her three children,
Jesse Wallace of Mobile, Ala.,
Angel Snyder and Leanna
Wallace of Wetumpka, Ala.,
and sisters, Deanna Lamb and
Betty Mann of Perry.
"Becky" was in Perry from
1954-1972 throughout her
public school education years
where she graduated from
Taylor County High School.
She has lived in Alabama
since 1973. There she began a
family and became involved in
the Presbyterian Church,
U.S.A. After serving as
Christian educator and lay
pastor at First Presbyterian in
Wetumpka, she "experienced
the call into the ministry."
On July 1, 2009, she enrolled
in Columbia Theological
Seminary. She sends thanks to
the "saints of Perry" who
nurtured her and asks your
prayers for this journey.

Pantene Beautiful Lengths
has partnered with the
American Cancer Society to
provide wigs to assist cancer
patients suffering hair loss. A
hair donation is a special gift
and act of generosity and
kindness that Patricia Wilson


took very seriously. It took only
moments for more than eight
inches of Patricia's brunette
hair to become a short, cute
style. Although a little nervous,
she is very happy about
donating her hair for this cause.
Donated hair must be at least
eight inches in length and must
be freshly washed, completely


lnef...but for a good cause


dry, and without any styling
products. It takes at least six
donations to make a wig. In
general, each donation comes
from a different person and is a
different color. Although hair
colors may look similar, each is
completely unique. For a
realistic-looking wig that has
consistent color throughout,


donated hair must be processed
and then dyed the same shade.
It is critical for each donation to
absorb dye at the same rate in
order to create wigs of
consistent, natural looking
color. Donated hair cannot be
bleached, permanently colored,
or chemically treated.
If you are interested in


following Patricia's example,
please contact Taylor County's
staff partner at the American
Cancer Society, 850-297-0588,
ext. 3704. It's time to start
growing beautiful, healthy hair
for another Cutting Event at our
2010 Relay for Life Event,
scheduled for May 14-15. The
theme is "The Colors of Relay."

Bulldogs drop season opener 24-7


BY AARON PORTWOOD
The Class 2B Taylor County
Bulldogs stood toe-to-toe with
Class 4A Wakulla for three
straight quarters Friday night
in Medart before fourth quarter
turnovers and a controversial
penalty turned a nail-biter into
a 24-7 War Eagleo win in the
season opener for both teams.
If not for a fumbled snap on
a fourth down play with the
Bulldogs knocking on the door
at the Wakulla 12-yard line, a
hotly-disputed penalty that gave
Wakulla a second chance to
run out the clock and two late
interceptions (one returned 39
yards for a touchdown late in
the game), the Bulldogs could
have pulled off a big upset to
open the 2009 season.


Instead, the new-look
Bulldogs will head to
Monticello this Friday night
in search of their first regular-
season victory under new Head
Coach Shane Boggs. Taylor
will face Jefferson County, who
lost a 37-28 shoot-out to Chiles
last week, and the Bulldogs will

Dorsett Stadium.
"We played a good football
team, and when you do that you
have to play as close to error
free as possible to win. We did
not do that. We played smart
at times, but we made mental,
physical and coaching mistakes
that cost us," Boggs said. "When


you play a good program with
good athletes and coaching you
can't get away with that."
Wakulla had 12 turnovers in
a pair of pre-season losses to
Chiles and Leon, but committed
just one turnover against the
Bulldogs. "Unfortunately,
they apparently got all of their
mistakes worked out in their
practice game last week, and we
did not," Boggs said.
"We missed a million tackles
on two plays, including a 75-
yard touchdown run on their
first drive, but overall we played
well enough on defense to win
this game," Boggs said.
After two straight dominating
performances in pre-season
wins over smaller schools, the
Bulldogs' defense had trouble


stopping Wakulla's rushing
attack--keyed by a stronger,
more physical offensive line.
The War Eagles used eight
different running backs (and
two quarterbacks) to pick up
338 yards and two touchdowns
on 54 carries. Meanwhile,
the Bulldogs held W\Vakulla'sX

.o "JOJ UT J"nIicinpT; .. ... - .-
Despite the difficult)
stopping the run early (Wakulla
had 29 carries for 204 yards
and both rushing TDs in the
first half), Taylor's defense
improved as the game wore on
and only allowed a field goal in
the second half.
It was the opposite story


for the Bulldogs, as Taylor
County's offense displayed
a very balanced offensive
attack in the first two quarters
(82 rushing yards, 62 pas,,ing
yards), but sttuIgled some in
the final half of play (6 yards
rushing, 94 passing) including
in the fourth quarter, when the
score and clock forced the Dogs
to go exclusively to the air.
Despite those struggles,
the Bulldogs' offense did put
together two impressive drives
in the final two quarters, with
one ending in a missed 47-yard
field goal and the other with a
19-yard loss on a fumble when
a shotgun snap sailed over
Bulldog QB Ty Crowley's head
at the Wakulla 12-yard line.
Taylor's final two desperation
drives ended in interceptions, as
Crowley (16 of 30 for 156 yards,
3 interceptions) attempted to
rally the Bulldogs back. All
three interceptions came in the
final seconds of a half.
Taylor finished with 244
total yards (156 yards passing,
88 yards rushing), led on the
ground by Tony Jackson's 10
carries for 66 yards (including a
39-yard TD run). Crowley had 7
carries for 27 yards, but finished
with only 8 yards officially
due to the 19-yard loss on the
fumbled snap.
Chad Hill had an 8-yard run
and caught 5 passes for 63
yards to finish as the Bulldogs'
leading receiver, while Reggie
King had 9 catches for 60 yards
and Jackson caught a pair of
screen passes for 30 total yards.
Wesley Brandon had pne carry
for 6 yards and Chase Stephens
had a 3-yard catch.
The Bulldogs picked up two
first downs and drove 48 yards
on their opening possession
before an offensive pass
interference penalty killed the
drive. Hill took a speed sv.eep

a nice pass from Crowley for
9 yards and a first down on 3rd
and 1.
Stephens caught a 3-yard
pass and Jackson picked up a
big first down when he caught
a short screen pass and made
several defenders miss on the
way to a 21-yard gain down to


the Wakulla 3 ,
Jackson %%am;,oto 1'pcd for a
No~rt ga op I I I .pl 211 . and
on 2nd and 4 (after a \\akullfa
penalty) the Bulldogs were
hit with a 15-yard offensive
pass interference penalty and
Jackson dropped a pass, forcing
Crowley to punt the ball down
to the War Eagle 10-yard line.
After George Gant, Taylor
Woods and Wesley Brandon
combined to stuff Wakulla on
two straight running plays,
Brandon was hit with a 15-
yard penalty and temporarily
forced to leave the game for not
having the required padding.
That penalty turned a 3rd and 7
situation at the War Eagles' own
13 to a 1st and 10 from their
own 28.
The Bulldog defense sacked
Wakulla's QB on the next
play, but missed five tackles
on a 75-yard option pitch play
for a touchdown by Antonio
Kilpatrick one play later.
Trailing 7-0 with ' 7:23
remaining in the first quarter,
the �Bulldogs started from their
own 5-yard line and Jackson
quickly moved the ball 9 yards
out to the 14. A nice curl route
by King and a great pass by
Crowley picked up 14 yards
before Crowley dove ahead for
yard.
However, the drive stalled as
Taylor was hit with a procedure
penalty and Hill dropped a
pass before King fumbled
after catching a six-yard pass.
Jackson showed his guts by
diving into a pile of Wakulla
players to wrestle the ball back.
but another procedure penalty
brought up 4th and 18 and led to
another Crowley punt.
The Dog defense then turned
in one of its best series of the
night, despite giving up a 40-
yard counter, 20-yard run and
a 10-yard gain on a delay hand-
off.
'; In between those lapses,
Davonta Powe and Jabahri
Bishop made big tackles and
Woods flattened the Wakulla
QB. The War Eagles had an
8-yard TD run called back due
to a holding penalty and the.
Bulldog defense held Wakulla
out of the endzone thanks to
huge plays turned in by Brandon.

Jayvee team rallies from



19-0 deficit to win game


The Taylor County High
junior varsity football team
rallied back from a 19-0 deficit
to defeat Wakulla Thursday 30-
19 at Perry's Dorsett Stadium.
The Bulldogs quickly found
themselves behind by three
touchdowns after the first
quarter but then proceeded to
dominate the War Eagles the
balance of the game.
Taylor County quarterback
Eli Grambling connected with
Jalen Jackson on a 60-yard hitch
and go pass play to begin the
Bulldogs' comeback.
Grambling would later find
Jackson on two more TD pass
plays of 30 and 34 yards.


The Bulldog defense also
got into the scoring as Raydon
Parker picked off a Wakulla
pitch to score from 35 yards
out and Brion Scott returned
an interception 60 yards for
another score.
"Our offensive line did a
great job of protection and
Eli (Grambling) did a super
job running and passing the
football," Bulldog Coach Shane
Boggs said.

nice tackles early in the drive
by Dennis Dailey, Murphy and
Houston, the Bulldogs missed
four tackles on a 12-yard TD
run by Will Thomas that gave
Wakulla a 14-0 lead just over
two minutes,, into the second
quarter.
, Jackson fumbled the ball
away at Taylor's own 39 on the
next drive, but Taylor Woods
and the Bulldog defense stepped
up to hold Wakulla, as Woods
made back-to-back solo tackles
and Gant, William McNutt,
Stephens and Murphy sniffed
out.a fake punt play for a 4-yard
loss.
Despite a pair of QB keepers
by Crowley for 21 yards
sandwiched around a 6-yard
carry by Jackson, the Bulldogs
had to punt for a third straight
time after two incomplete
passes and a completion to Hill
that lost 5 yards.
Defensive stops by Calvin
Bass, Eddie Weeks, Gant,
Houston and Brandon led to
a 4th and 1 play when Bass;
Woods and Bishop combined to
stuff a QB dive for no gain and
give the ball back to the Taylor
offense.

be the Bulldogs' only score of


the night when he took a pitch

Woods sacked QB Casy
Eddinger to end the first half
with the Bulldogs trailing 14-7.
Wakulla took the opening
drive of the second and drove 62
yards in 9 plays before kicking a
32-yard field goal despite some,
nice defensive plays by Smith;
and Bishop, who was one of
the defensive stand-outs for the
Bulldogs from his noseguard
position.
Trailing 17-7 Crowley
attempted to rally the Bulldogs,
back, completing a 9-yard
screen pass to Jackson, a 28-
yard pass to Hill and running
for 7 yards on a keeper. Brandon
came in to spell Jackson and
gave great effort on .a 6-yard

an 11-yard pass and the drive
stalled at the Wakulla 30 when
Crowley narrowly missed a 47-

a Wakulla punt and Jackson
broke 7 tackles on an 18-yard

Wakulla coach: 'Watch out for Taylor County'


BULLDOGS
Continued from page 7
run. Great downfield blocking
sprung Hill for a 24-yard swing
pass and King caught a 6-yard
pass. Another 8-yard reception
by Hill brought up a huge 4th
and 1 play that saw Crowley
take a QB draw for 4 yards and
a first down.
However, Taylor's chance to
pull within a field goal ended
three plays later on 4th and 2 at
the War Eagle 12-yard line when
Crowley missed the shotgun
snap and Wakulla recovered the
loose ball at their 31.
Woods and Bishop continued
to turn in stellar defensive


performances, helped by tackles
by Weeks, Brandon and a two
big plays by Cory Sadler--one
of which was ruled a "horse
collar" tackle and a 15-yard
penalty much to the dismay of
Bulldog coaches and fans.
The 15-yard personal foul
penalty--which appeared to
come on a play Sadler pulled a
Wakulla receiver down by the
front of his jersey (and not the
back of his shoulder pads) for
a 2-yard loss--ruined a chance
for a Bulldog comeback, as
the War Eagles were awarded
a first down at the Bulldogs'
28 instead of facing 4th and 10
from the 43.
Witnh iut 6 minutes remaining


in the game, Wakulla used the
break to run valuable time off
the clock before turning the ball
over on downs-at the Taylor 24
thanks to heavy QB pressure
by Powe and Smith, a sack by
Sadler and Woods and a big
6-yard tackle for loss by Woods
--who was a one-man wrecking
crew on defense all night and
seemed to be in on every play.
Still trailing by just 10 points,
Taylor went into its hurry-up
offense and Crowley threw
three straight passes (two
which were dropped) before
being picked off and having the
interception returned 39 yards
for a touchdown to make the
final score 24-7 with 2:53 left in
the game.
Crowley was picked off for a
third time in the closing seconds
on a deep pass intended for
King, allowing Wakulla to run
out the clock on a close game
that was decided by turnovers
(Taylor had 5, while Wakulla
had only 1).
"People better watch out for
Taylor County," Wakulla Head


Caleb Murphy (11) and Jahbari Bishop (51) corral a Wakulla runner.


Coach Scott Klees said after
the game. "They are much
improved. What a good job their
coach has done with that team."


Taylor County's 2009 team
showed marked improvement
from last year's 37-7 loss to
Wakulla in Perry. In that game


the War Eagles out-gained
the Bulldogs 391-172 in total
yardage and Taylor had 6
fumbles (2 lost).
