to fold in game center dispute?


The City of Perry took a
gamble on trying to regulate
sweepstakes centers within the
city limits and now it appears
that was a losing bet.
To date, the city has spent
more than $12,000 in attorney
fees on the issue and the city
council is in the process of
repealing an ordinance that


School

board
'neutral'



on religion

The Taylor County School
Board last week adopted a
"policy of neutrality on
religion" in reaction to a
federal court decision in West
Florida banning school-
sponsored prayer.
That decision, issued in
January of this year by U.S.
District Judge Margaret C.
Rodgers, forbids school
employees from "promoting,
advancing, aiding, facilitating,
endorsing, or causing religious
prayers or devotionals during
school-sponsored events."
The case arose from claims
by the American Civil
Liberties Union in 2008 that
teachers and administrators in
the school district "endorsed
religion." '
School board Chairwoman
Brenda Carlton said the board
had to adopt the policy to
reflect changes in Florida
Statutes.
School Supt. Paul Dyal said
the police, change-uon't affect
the activities of the FCA
(Fellowship of Christian
Athletes).
"An adult cannot lead a
prayer at the football game.
That would have to be led by
students," Dyal said.
Several in attendance sought
clarification on the new policy,
claiming it was vague.
But board member Danny
Lundy said that such a policy
doesn't need to be too specific.
The policy states in part:
"Because of their special
relationship to their students,
school administrators and
teachers must at all times be
mindful of their roles and not
use their position with the
school board to advance or
disparage any religion or
religious belief. School
facilities and property may not
be used in any manner which
would be perceived as

imposed tough licensing fees
and regulations for any new
game centers looking to open
here.
During a special meeting
Sept. 10, City Manager Bob
Brown told council members
that there had been "some
problems with ordinance #870
(the sweepstakes center


ordinance)."
Those problems included a
federal lawsuit filed by the
owners of one game center that
was already operating in the
city when the ordinance was
adopted.
The lawsuit challenged the
constitutionality of the
ordinance.


2009 Florida Forest Festival Chairman Bo Taff


By MARK VIOLA
Staff writer
As senior vice president
for planning at Foley Timber
and Land Company. Bo Taff
is responsible for long-range
strategic land planning for
the company's property,
which h encompasses hundreds
of thousands of acres.
As such. he often spends
his days looking into the
future, but always with- an
eye to both Taylor County's
present and its past, filled
with a rich and storied
heritage.
As chairman of the 54th
annual Florida Forest
Festival, he is doing the
same: focusing on the future,


honoring the past, always
mindful of the present.
The festival, which
celebrates forestry here in
Taylor County and across the
state, will culminate
Saturday. Oct. 24, at Forest
Capital State Park.
While Taff is a recent
transplant to Taylor
CountiN--he has been %\ith.
Foley for the past two and a
half years--his forestry roots
carry him back four
generations to his great
grandfather, who started a
timber company in Wakulla
County.
Taff, who remembers as a
young boy visiting his
grandfather at the timber


"The game center owners
alleged that the ordinance was
overly restrictive. While we felt
that, in general, we had a strong
argument for the ordinance, we
did agree that there were a few
areas that would probably have
to be modified anyway," Brown
said.
"By repealing the ordinance,


the lawsuit will go away and it
will stop 'the meter running on
these attorney fees. We feel that
ultimately we can do what we
need to do to protect the public
through other avenues."
Brown .also said another
concern was that, if the city

yard, was bom and raised in
Tallahassee.
"Although I'm not from
Taylor County, I feel like I fit
in," he said, comparing the
area to his family's historical
home of Wakulla County.
When asked why the
Forest Festival is important
to the the community, he first
responded by talking about
Foley's recent efforts with the
Vision 2060 project
"From a land planning
perspective, Foley was very
engaged in Vision 2060." he
said, reiterating the Vision's
mission statement: "to
protect, sustain and enhance
the way of life" of Taylor
County.


"Everyone involved said
they wanted to be able to
grow, but not lose who and
what they were," Taff said.
And what is Taylor
County? No definition of the
county would be complete
without timber and timber-
related industry.
"It's in our DNA," Taff
said. "You hate to build on
your foundation. Timber is
Taylor Count\'s foundation "
That foundation is
growing, with the
announcement earlier this
year that the University of
Florida will be siting a
research cellulosic ethanol.

New grading system for TCHS?


The State Board of
Education announced major
changes to Florida's high
school grading formula last
week, and local school officials
are working to determine how
much impact they will have
here.
The changes, required by the
passage of Senate Bill 1908


during the 2008 Legislative
session, split the focus of the
high school grading formula to
now account for both Florida

Fire/rescue donation
Recently, the Osceola County Fire Department donated eight hydraulic
extrication tools to Taylor County. These tools allow firefighters to safely remove
victims from automobile crashes. The addition of these tools will allow Taylor
County to have one at every volunteer fire station as well as spares. "This will
allow for more rapid extrication of patients in outlying areas," Taylor County
Public Safety Director Jeff Manning said. "Had these tools been purchased new,
they would have cost the county well over $100,000. Taylor County Fire Rescue
would like to thank the Osceola County Board of Commissioners for their generous
donation." Shown above, firefighters Earl Paris (left) and Kyle Gibbs inspect one

Commission adopts


$46.8 million budget

The Taylor County Commission has officially adopted its 2009-
10 budget, which totals $46.8 million.
Commissioners held their second budget hearing Monday,
drawing no one from the public. This was unlike the first hearing
held last week, during which a group of Steinhatchee residents
appeared to protest an allocation of $1.2 million in capital reserve
funds to help complete the Taylor County Sports Complex.
The residents wanted the funds to be used to construct a boat
ramp in Steinhatchee, which one callell a "need" compared to a
"want."
At the conclusion of that meeting, commissioners voted
unanimously to tentatively adopt their property tax millage rates

School board members

refuse to take pay hike

The Taylor County School Board has chosen not to take a pay
hike for the 2009-2010 school year.
The recommended salary for local school board members as
computed by the Legislative Committee on Intergovernmental
Relations is $25,001--a $58 increase over last year.
But members last week voted to keep their salaries the same as
last year.
During the 2009 legislative session: provisions related to school
board member salaries were amended. The change in the law
provides that, for the current school year only, the salary for each
board member shall be the amount calculated according to Florida

A-2 Taco Times September 23, 2009


.. CAPITOL UPDATE


from the office of Rep. Leonard Bembry


During the 2009 Legislative
Session, the Florida Legislature
struggled with a large budget
shortfall in the state budget.
Lawmakers, including State
Representative Leonard
Bembry, pushed for tax reform
and greater budget increase
restraints. Unfortunately, the
majority of lawmakers voted
to increase taxes, instead, to
meet state needs by raising fees
associated with basic vehicle
ownership.
"I understand the financial
struggles that many of you
are facing as you maintain
your homes, farms and small
businesses during the current
recession and I am deeply
concerned that fee increases
will have a very negative effect
on our efforts to financially
recover and grow our economy,"
Bembry said.


Lawmakers who supported
the fee increases argued
that some fees haven't been
increased in many years. While
that may be the case, increases
they approved are sudden and
sharp. The cost of a Florida
driver's license has doubled,
and is now set at $48. It will
also cost $25 more each year
to renew the registration on a
medium-sized vehicle, bringing
those costs to nearly $72.
Representative Bembry is
also concerned about calls he
has received from constituents
who were unable to renew
their tags or licenses within the
short timeframe allowed by the
legislation. There were many
frustrated people in line at our
local motor vehicle and tax
collectors' offices. "It's truly
unfortunate that the Legislature
gave such a very narrow window


of time for people to prepare for
this costly new burden.
"I will continue to work in
Tallahassee to remove waste
and inefficiencies from the
budget. I will support prioritized
spending and adequate funding
for the basic needs and services
of the citizens of our state,"
Bembry said.
Bembry signed House Bill
99 last week. Under a letter
sent by Representative Ron
Saunders, D-Key West, the
legislation would "revert
vehicle registration and title fees
and driver's license fees back
to what they were before the
passage of Senate Bill 1778."
Bembry stated, "Please do not
hesitate to contact one of our
legislative offices in Madison,
Chiefland or Tallahassee if
you have any questions or
concerns."

The sweetness of those apples lingers
with me still.
The air in Gatlinburg, Tenn., was crisp
and the day was clear. If I hadn't been
15 and generally disagreeable, it would
have been a perfect day.
But my parents--I believed--were out
to sabotage my happiness.
We had taken a trip to the mountains
for a respite from the hot temperatures
which had smothered the Southeast all
summer. In early Fall, there was still
little inercy in sight. ."1' "), w I
Since I was an only child, vacations
sometimes involved "taking a friend"
but for this extended weekend, it was
just the three of us, and that put me
in the back seat enjoying many of the
sights, but occasionally rolling my eyes
at the parental banter.
In Gatlinburg, we enjoyed a walking
tour of the downtown area, eyeing
sidewalk artists, and bushel upon
bushel of fresh apples. Finally, when
my father decided upon the baskets
of apples we should take home, he
announced that he would go for the car.
So he placed three balsa wood baskets
on the steps of an elegant, downtown
church and told us to "sit tight" while
he walked a mile or so to the car.
Mother, in the meantime, saw some
vases she wanted to look at, and darted
to a nearby shop.
That left me on the church steps,
surrounded by apples, looking hopeless
and forlorn.
And suddenly, out of nowhere, a drop-
dead gorgeous teenage boy appeared
on the sidewalk below, in rumpled
casual jeans, with swooped hair. If this
was a musical, there would be a grand
score of trumpets and violins right
now, because I could hardly breathe.
He had on a preppy looking twill
shirt, sleeves rolled up, and an air of
confidence which removed him from
60 percent of the male population at
age 16.
I was pretty sure I was in love.
I remember thinking that I could leave
with him, right then and there, and live
happily ever after.
I had named our children before he
made the first step toward me.
We were going to be fantastically
happy--traveling to Gatlinburg every
Fall to remember our first chance
meeting, skiing in Aspen, seeing the
Eiffel Tower in Paris.
It would be a great wedding, because
he was gorgeous. Everyone would be
jealous. We would be stunning. Our
future would be just grand.


w 'bout them

ples?
By SUSAN H. LINCOLN

Suddenly, I was feeling more
confident and happy, too, that I had
taken this trip with my parents. It was
meant to be.
I considered speaking first but
decided I'd let him do the honors. Then
I could act surprised, pleased, calm,
cool and collected.
He was coming toward me.
I glanced in his direction.
Our eyes met.
And he said, "Are you selling those
ap app'l ?""11f I .'rl ruiw vbh 'irli r('/o
Now that I'm old and cantankerous
and worldly, I could have come up with
a number of noteworthy come-backs
or clever repartee, but instead, I was
just devastated. Speechless, I realized
it appeared that my day's sales on the
church steps might be necessary to
feed my family.
I was horrified.
"I'm just waiting on my parents," I
finally said, which was surely a stupid
thing to say but "stupid" was all I could
come up with at the moment.
Having been given no encouragement,
the beautiful teenage boy said politely,
"Sorry," and moved on. I wanted to
collect my wits and chase after him in
an inconspicuous way but I was unable
to move or think...except, that is, to
think about how stupid I'd been.
My father soon appeared with a spry
gait as he came to collect the wonderful
apples. I, however, just looked
disgusted.
"What's wrong with you?" he asked.
I rolled my eyes, for how could he
understand?
"Look at my vase!" my mother said,
walking up to us.
They talked among themselves and
seemed to be enjoying their vacation
immensely.
In retrospect, it makes me happy that
they enjoyed their time away, and their
time together.
Then, however, when I was the center
of the universe, I wondered how two
people who said they loved me dearly
could be so happy while my whole life
was in shambles: the wedding called off
and my ski trip suspended indefinitely.
I might never see the Eiffel Tower.
The scent of apples every Fall leads
many people to the kitchen for pies and
cobblers, cider and salad. But it takes
me back 40 years and 500 miles to a
place where I remember what it was
like to be an awkward 15. And where
I finally realize that you only get over
that kind of humiliation when you
become the parents you once had.

Grades for high


schools will be late


GRADING SYSTEM
Continued from page 1
global marketplace."
Taylor County
Superintendent Paul Dyal said
the district is aware of the
changes but has not been able
to "sit. down yet to see how
much it will affect us."
He said he biggest concern
was the delay in receiving the
high school grade.
In previous years, grades for
high schools have been
released annually during the
summer, alongside elementary
and middle school grades. With
the insertion of new data
components for the revised
grading formula, it is
anticipated that high school
grades will be released toward
the end of the year when all
components are available for
the calculation to occur.
"That's almost a full
semester into the next year,"
Dyal said.
He, will be attending a
superintendents meeting this
week in Tampa. "Hopefully we


will have a better
understanding of it after that,"
he said.
Under the new policy,
beginning this school year
(2009-10), 50 percent of a high
school's grade will be based on
the performance of its students
on the FCAT, and the
remaining 50 percent will be
based on factors that include
the following:
* the school's graduation
rate;
* the performance and
participation of students in
Advanced Placement (AP),
International Baccalaureate
(IB), dual enrollment,
Advanced International
Certificate of Education
(AICE) and industry
certification;
* the postsecondary readiness
of the students as measured by
the SAT, ACT, or College
Placement Test (CPT);
* the high school graduation
rate of at-risk students; and
* growth or decline in these
data components from year to
year.

complex.
With no one in the audience
and a malfunctioning air
conditioning system providing
little relief from the warm
temperatures, the board made
quick work of adopting the
budget and millage rates.
As members had tentatively
approved last week,
commissioners agreed to keep
the county's village rates the
same as the current year:
7.0113 mills for the general
fund and 1.1215 for the MSTU
fund, which is imposed on
property in the unincorporated
area of the county for services
duplicated by the City of Perry,
such as fire service.
With property values
generally in decline in the
county, the county is expecting
to bring in $10.7 million in
proper$ t|, revenue next year,
about $407,000 less than the
current year.
The board is banking on a
state fund, created to make up
lost revenue for fiscally
constrained counties resulting
from property tax reforms
passed in 2008, to eliminate a
projected $330,000 shortfall in
recurring revenues versus
recurring expenses in the

Festival honors


forestry's past,


present, future


IN THE DRIVER'S SEAT
Continued from page 1
plant at Buckeye.
These are steps toward to a
future in which the county will
have a more diverse and
sustainable economy, Taff
explained.
He said he hopes to see the
county's economy diversify but
always include forestry.
"Our future is going to be
directly tied to our natural
resources," he said. "You can't
talk about natural resources
without talking about the
county's forest resources."
And that brings him back to
the Forest Festival.
"The festival is important,"
Taff said. "Our heritage is in
forestry and our future will
have forestry in it. It's who we
are, where we've come from
and where we're going.
"This festival celebrates all
three of those aspects. These
festivals and remembrances are
what help the community come
together.
"I hope we never see a day
when Taylor County isn't
looking back on its forestry
heritage and looking forward to
an ever growing and
diversifying forestry industry."
The month-long celebration
begins Saturday, Oct. 3, with
the Jr. Miss Program,
beginning at 6 p.m. at Forest
Capital Hall under the theme of
"Beach Blast."
One week later, on Saturday,
Oct. 10, the festival's "wee
royalty" will be crowned at the
Little King & Queen Pageant,
which begins at 7 p.m. at the
hall. The pageant's theme is
"Footloose."
Pre-sale tickets for both


events are available at the
Perry-Taylor County Chamber
of Commerce.
The festival carnival opens
Wednesday, Oct. 21, on
Industrial Drive, followed on
Thursday by the "Fabulous"
Fireworks Display. The
pyrotechnic show will begin at
dusk at the Perry-Foley
Airport.
The festival's downtown
events will be held Friday, Oct.
22, including scary stories at
the Graystone Haunted House
at 5 p.m., the annual kids'
parade around the courthouse
square at 6:30 and the Antique
Car Gaslight Parade.
The "big day" begins
Saturday, Oct. 24, with the
King Tree Parade at 10 a.m.
downtown. Events at Forest
Capital State Park kick off in
earnest at 12 noon, including
the World's Largest Free Fish
Fry. Mainstage entertainment
this year includes local singer
Mollie Lynn and her band, as
well as National Colgate
Country Showdown Winner
Johnny Bulford.
The festival will also have
arts and crafts, food vendors,
the Antique Car Show, heavy
equipment demonstrations,
loader and chainsaw
competitions and displays from
the Division of Forestry.
Taff encourages the
community to come out and
take part in celebrating the
forestry industry, both its past
and its future.

Fiddler's in Steinhatchee was
the location of the Aug. 29
luncheon of the Roseheads of
Perry, chapter 2207 of the Red
Hat Society. Twenty-one
members and one guest
gathered at 11:30 a.m. in a
private dining room for this
popular and well-known
seafood restaurant.
Tables were decorated with
Red Hat items, and a gift from
the August committee was at
each place setting. Members of
the committee included Debbie
Beach, June Lytle, Barbara
Patrick, Suezette Stephens and
Linda Wiles.
Owner and head chef Jim
Hunt donned a red chef's hat
and greeting all ladies while
drink orders were taken.
Suezette Stephens welcomed
everyone and Norma McGuire
said the blessing.
Hattie Adams passed around
a sample Red Hat decorated
with silver sequins that can be
ordered from the Sandy Toes
chapter. Fourteen ladies were
interested and placed orders.
The August committee then
presented a special gift bag
filled with an assortment of
useful items (among them a
book mark and coasters) to
Norma McGuire for being the
first to R.S.V.P.
Cheryl Gregory reminded
everyone of the Sandy Toes'
Sept. 19 luncheon and auction,


urging them to support these
Red Hat sisters with their work
for the March of Dimes. She
also reviewed details of an
event to
be held
Sept. 21
and sent

Gregory displayed the
chapter's renewed charter, and
Barbara Patrick helped explain

and what perks come with
supporting membership status.
Everyone sang "Happy
Birthday" to Debbie Beach
who wore a purple hat and red
outfit.
Names were drawn for door
prizes which were in red bags
and boxes. Frames with Red

favorites.
Dessert and coffee were then

Enforcement delayed


GAME CENTER DISPUTE
Continued from page 1
rescinded the ordinance, that it
could then be held liable for the
other party's attorney fees.
At the special meeting,
Brown noted that he had
spoken to the city's attorney,
Mike Smith, regarding those
concerns and his opinion was
that the other party would most
likely be willing to pay its own
attorney fees if the ordinance
was dropped.
The ordinance not only
required an "annual only"
license tax of $5,000 per
machine, but also levied an
additional license tax in the


amount of 10 percent of gross
receipts per machine, per
location, per month. All
collected taxes go into the city's
general fund.
Licenses would not be
granted to locations within 500
feet of a church, place of
worship, public library, public
park, public housing project,
daycare center, public or
private school, college,
recreation center, skating rink,
movie theater,. video arcade,
public swimming pool, private
residence or any other place
frequented by minors.
The ordinance also required
each license holder to maintain
an itemized list 'of gross


receipts for at least five years as
well as an itemized list of all
expenses--including money
and prizes paid--along with the
name and address of each
person to whom the expenses
were paid and a receipt for all
expenses. All records were
open to inspection by an
authorized employee of the
city.
However, due to the lawsuit,
the city delayed enforcement of
the ordinance provisions. -
On Tuesday, Sept. 22, the
council was to hold the first
public reading of the ordinance
repealing the sweepstakes
center policy. A final vote was
slated for Oct. 13.

'Dogs fail to finish after quick start


BY AARON PORTWOOD
After scoring on their first
three possessions and building
a 15-0 lead in the first quarter
of Friday night's home opener
against Class 4A Chiles, it
looked like the Class 2B Taylor
County Bulldogs were going to
blow-out the Timberwolves and
cruise to their second straight
win.
However, after giving up 15
unanswered first-quarter points,
the Chiles defense adjusted
and effectively shut down the
Bulldogs' spread offense for
much of the rest of the game.
Meanwhile, the Timberwolves
rallied to score two quick
touchdowns just before the
half--cutting the lead to 15-13--
took advantage of three Bulldog
turnovers and used a punishing


"I am convinced we are
getting better in many areas.
While we are not happy about
our 1-2 start, there is cause
for optimism. The players are
giving great effort. They are
also playing as a team. Above
all, they are coming to practice
every day with a desire to
improve," Boggs said.
"We have worked on
becoming more consistent in
every phase of the game, and
it has shown just how much
potential we have. On offense,
we took the opening kickoff and
drove the length of the field for a
touchdown and followed that up
by scoring a touchdown and a
field goal on our next two series.
But, then we made some simple
mistakes that led to turnovers
and punts.

to our players and our coaches
to look up in the stands and
see all the support. Thanks for
getting behind our team, and
we are looking forward to great
things this Friday night and in
the future!" Boggs said.
The Bulldogs' offense looked
great to start the game last
week, as Boggs used the spread
gun and wildcat formations to
spread the ball around and drive
60 yards in just 6 plays to score
on the opening drive of the
game.
Operating out of the "wildcat"
formation, James Houston (5
carries, 14 yards) took the first
direct snap of the game and
scampered 12 yards for a first
down. Reggie King (3 carries,
56 yards) took an end around
21 yards on the next play and
Chad Hill ran the same play the
opposite side for 4 yards one
play later to set up a perfectly-
called fake end around/QB
keeper by Crowley (7 carries, 9
yards) that surprised Chiles and
picked up 20 yards down to the
3-yard line. Wesley Brandon (3
carries, 4 yards, 1 TD) entered
the game at QB in the wildcat
formation and took the direct
snap before following big Josh
Wells and his offensive line into
the endzone for a quick 6-0 lead
(a bad snap forced Hill to throw
incomplete on an impromptu
2-point conversion try).
Less than 2 minutes into the
game the Bulldogs were leading
6-0 and their defense quickly
got the ball back when Houston
picked off a pass by Chiles QB

yards, 1 TD) was thrown for
a loss on an option play and
Crowley's pass was too long
for King, but Houston kept the
drive alive with a great 7-yard
run on a direct snap on 3rd and

a 3-yard TD pass (his first catch
of the year) just 6 minutes into
the game. Crowley's 2-point
pass was picked off to keep the
score 12-0.
Big defensive plays by
Devonta Powe and Houston
helped the Bulldogs force
Chiles to go 3-and-out, and the
Timberwolves put themselves
in a deep hole when a low
snap forced their punter to
accidentally take a knee for
a 14-yard loss that gave the
Bulldogs a 1st and 10 from the
Chiles 11-yard line.
Houston took the wildcat
direct snap for two yards, King
ran an end around for two more,
but couldn't catch a 3rd down
pass from Crowley, who was
forced to make a 24-yard field
goal that made the score 15-0
with over 3 minutes to play in
the first quarter.
Jabahri Bishop made a big
tackle for no gain to start the
next drive and Jonathan Smith

allowed Chiles to dig out of a
2nd and 28 hole with a 16-yard
screen pass and a wild 71-yard

play--as Givens scrambled to
avoid a sack and somehow
launched a Hail Mary pass to a
receiver that had gotten behind
the Bulldog secondary.

Flavored cigarettes


banned nationwide


The U.S. Food and Drug
Administration announced
Tuesday a ban on cigarettes
with flavors characterizing
fruit, candy or clove. The ban,
authorized by the new Family
Smoking Prevention and
Tobacco Control Act, is part
of a national effort by the FDA
to reduce smoking in America.
Smoking is the leading
preventable cause of death in
America.
The FDA's ban on candy
and fruit-flavored cigarettes,
effective Tuesday, "highlights
the importance of reducing the
number of children who start
to smoke, and who become
addicted to dangerous tobacco
products," FDA officials said.
The FDA is also examining
options for regulating both
menthol cigarettes and flavored
tobacco products other than
cigarettes.
"Almost 90 percent of
adult smokers start smoking
as teenagers. These flavored
cigarettes are a gateway for
many children and young adults
to become regular smokers,"
said FDA Commissioner
Margaret A. Hamburg, M.D.
"The FDA will utilize regulatory
authority to reduce the burden
of illness and death caused by
tobacco products to enhance our
Nation's public health."
Flavors make cigarettes
and other tobacco products
more appealing to youth, FDA
officials said. Studies have
shown that 17 year old smokers
are three times as likely to use
flavored cigarettes as smokers
over the age of 25.
"Flavored cigarettes
attract and allure kids into
lifetime addiction," said U.S.
Department of Health and
Human Services Assistant
Secretary for Health Howard K.
Koh, M.D., M.P.H. "FDA's ban
on these cigarettes will break
that cycle for the more than
3,600 young people who start
smoking daily."
The FDA is taking several
steps to enforce the ban. A letter
recently sent to the tobacco
industry provided information
about the law, and explained
that any company which
continues to make, ship or sell


such products may be subject to
FDA enforcement actions.
The FDA has also made
available today an advisory to
parents on the risks associated
with flavored tobacco products.
"Youth are twice as likely
to report seeing advertising
for these flavored products as
adults are," said Dr. Joshua
Sharfstein, a pediatrician and
the FDA Principal Deputy
Commissioner. "Marketing
campaigns for products with
sweet candy and fruit flavors
can mislead young people into
thinking that these products are
less addictive and less harmful."
The FDA encourages
consumers to report continuing
sales of flavored cigarettes
through a special tobacco
hotline (1-877-CTP-1373)
and Web site (www.fda.gov/
flavoredtobacco).


within 15-13 with 4.2 seconds
remaining on the clock.
Smith and Issac Nelson made
big plays to force Chiles to punt
to start the second half, but
the Timberwolves scored on
defense three plays later when
Crowley was picked off on a
3rd and 17 pass to King and the
ball was returned 38 yards for
a touchdown. A two-point pass
play helped give Chiles their
first lead of the night, 21-15,
2:20 into the third quarter.
Taylor County answered back,
as Jackson brought the near-
capacity Dorsett Stadium crowd
to their feet with an awesome cut-
back that left defenders grasping
air on an 11-yard TD run. His
score was set up by Houston's
10-yard kickoff return, a fantastic
32-yard end around run by King
and Jackson's own 17-yard run,
as well as a short option keeper
by Crowley, who booted the PAT
to give the Bulldogs a slim 22-
21 lead with 8:05 left in the 3rd
quarter.

"We believe that all people
deserve the opportunity to live
a healthy and productive life.
The Rollings Foundation aims
to remove those barriers that
prevent children from receiving
a quality education and living a
healthy lifestyle," (William)
Rollings said.
So far in 2009, the
foundation has provided school
uniforms to elementary and
high school students as well as
school lunches at Bechet High
School.
"Your donations to the
foundation can make a
difference. A $1 donation will
provide lunch to one student
per day; $3 will provide one
student with school supplies for
the year; $10 will provide one
family with a food package to
meet basic nutritional needs or
will provide annual tuition fees
for one elementary student; and
$20 will provide tuition fees for
one high school student or will
provide a school uniform for a
student," Rollings noted.
He is the son of William and
Estic Rollings Sr. of Perry and
a 1987 graduate of Taylor
County High School.
He and his family live in
Texas and recently returned to
Perry in honor of his
mother's retirement celebration
recognizing her 40 years of
service to the Taylor County
School District.

'Scallop' cake wins RBest in ShowA. at .fair


I~wIt~~

A confectionary concoction shaped like a giant
scallop won top honors at the annual cake and pie
contest.


Steinhatchee bid farewell to
the 2009 scallop season with
the annual Shells & Scales
Community Fair Sept. 5.
Allen Fink won "Best in
Show" for a cake shaped like a
scallop and Tammy Austen
took home the top award for
her pie entry.
"We appreciate our
judges--Bruce Ratliff, the Rev.
Glenda Brayman, Mr. and Mrs.
Richard Jackson, Melody Cox,
Chris Owen and Matt Salmons.
They did a great job," Rhoda
Moehring, president of the
Steinhatchee Community
Projects Board, said.
"We would also like to thank


our volunteers from the
Steinhatchee Garden Club,
Beta Sigma Phi, Steinhatchee
AARP Chapter and
Steinhatchee Community
Projects Board," she continued.
"Jonathan Pank of the
Galloping Scallop Music Park
provided us with songs for the
day. Kids and adults alike tried
their hand at guessing when the
ice scallop would melt, bean
bag throws, pitch the glass, ring
toss and hula hoop contests.
Dixie County teens dunked
folks and cooled them off as
well as raised funds for their
yearbook.
"Susan Archibald, Bonnie


Heaton and Peggy Glass gave
us a chance to have a bridge
memory as they sold framed
pictures that included a nail
from the original bridge.
Orders are still being taken.
Our new pier was under
construction but folks were
invited to walk up.
"Julius and Billy Cooey fried
great mullet for our dinner.
Mullet were donated by the
Steinhatchee River Chamber
of Commerce. The chamber
organized its annual Mullet
Toss and Scallop Shucking
Contest with Audrey Switaski
and Patty Zurbrick tracking the
throws in their white boots. It


rained, but that only made them
slide farther so all had a great
time. We appreciate the
vendors and the variety of
items they brought to our
festival.
"A special thank you to Stan
and Jean Ridgeway and Linda
Johnson who arranged our
contests and games.
"AARP finished the evening
with an auction of attic
treasures. Steinhatchee hosted a
very active scallop season this
year. We hope all our visitors
found time spent in our
community a rewarding
experience and look forward to
2010," Moehring concluded.

B-4 Taco Times September 23, 2009


Project aims to address economic crisis by connecting
people in distress with resources and provide the
community with opportunities to give time, assistance


"Never give up hope--
together, we'll get through
tough times" was the spirit in
the air as United Way of the Big
Bend (UWBB) and dozens of
partners launched the HELP &
HOPE project in Tallahassee
last week.
"Hundreds, perhaps
thousands, of Big Bend
residents have for the first time
in their lives experienced
economic crisis, and the HELP
& HOPE project aims to meet
the challenge head on," said
Ken Armstrong, UWBB
president.
"The HELP & HOPE project
won't be successful because of
our United Way--success will
depend on the community
embracing the idea. Everyone
knows that times are hard. For
the UWBB Board to step up
and commit $20,000 from
reserves to get HELP & HOPE
off the ground is a powerful
statement.
"HELP & HOPE's mission is
to connect those experiencing
crisis due to the current
economic recession with
existing and new resources
needed to hasten their return to
economic independence," he


convinced this is the


way the country is going to be
able to come out of this
economic distress," said Bob
Feagin, Holland & Knight
partner. "Instead of focusing on
who is to blame for these
problems, I believe it is
imperative to give support to
the victims of these problems.
And, because HELP & HOPE
will be addressing these issues
in this manner. I have seen
nothing but a positive response.
I didn't know anybody other
than the UWBB who could
better give a good assessment
on how our community is
doing during these tough times.
They have the best connections
in the Big Bend community
with service providers, as well
as private and public
organizations that support
service providers who lead this
effort."
Armstrong noted that "The
belief is that all across the
eight counties served by
UWBB, including Taylor,
are individuals, businesses,
churches, service clubs, civic
organizations and non-profit
groups who would be willing to
do something very special...if
they knew what was needed
and how to step forward."
"We have received 25,342


calls to our help line 2-1-1, and
general calls for assistance
have increased by 18 percent in
our last fiscal year (July 2008
through June 2009)," said
Randy Nicklaus, 2-1-1 Big
Bend president. "Calls about
utility assistance have gone up
34 percent, calls about rent or
housing assistance have
increased 18 percent, calls
about food assistance went up
42 percent, and calls about
emergency shelter have
increased by 10 percent. We
help assess the callers' needs by
assisting them with the issue
that they are calling about and
asking an additional series of
questions. We want to make
sure there aren't any other
problems the caller is going
through that we can help with,
because sometimes they are
calling about one problem, but
they really have multiple
problems they are dealing with.
We offer them referrals based
on their needs. If one avenue of
help can no longer provide
assistance, we try to think
outside the box with creative
problem solving."
