Don Curtis, left, and local Tea Party Chairman Bob
Root were among the thousands who marched on
Washington.


Two for 'TEA'


in Washington


Taylor County had at least
two representatives among the
hundreds of thousands who
marched on Washington D.C.
on Sept. 12 as part of the
national Tea Party Movement.
Local Tea Party Chairman
Bob Root and Don Curtis made
the trip and were glad they did.
"People from all over the
country had hand-made signs
covering many topics but the
underlying theme was that
Washington is over-reaching,
both fiscally and with policy,
and they're not listening or
representing average taxpayers
anymore," Curtis said.
The pair got to Washington
in different ways. Curtis flew
while Root caught up in
Memphis, Tenn., with the Tea
Party Express -- a caravan of
buses that left Sacramento,
Calif., on Aug. 28 and traveled
cross-country to more than 30
cities before reaching the


Capitol on Sept. 12.
Root took with him a "rolling
petition" that he towed behind
his vehicle.
"The rolling petition was
Bob's idea. He put it on the
Web (taylorteaparty.com) and
people from all over the
country signed it," Curtis said.
The top of the petition read:
"Dear Government: We the
People Are Tea'd! Stop
Wasteful Spending."
"At a stop near Chicago there
were 10,000 to 12,000 people
there. We had people chasing
us down the street trying to
sign the petition," Root said.
Neither Root nor Curtis have

MEI awarded


$5.5 million


Army contract

Chemring Ordnance has announced that Perry's Martin
Electronics, Inc. (MEI) has been awarded a $5.5 million contract
from the United States Army for the production of M228 Practice
Hand Grenade Fuzes.
This initial order under a new five-year contract with the U.S.
Army will start in 2010 and continue to employ 40 people at the
Perry facility.
The U.S. Army uses the MEI pyrotechnic fuze in the M69
Training Hand Grenade.
Richard Gardner, president of Chemring Ordnance commented,
"We are proud of our long history with the U.S. Army and U.S.
Marine Corps on this key training product for US infantry. MEI
has been producing this M228 fuze consistently since 1968."
The M228 fuze is just one of many defense products produced
at MEI for the Department of Defense. MEI is part of the
Chemring Group, PLC which generated over $500 million in sales
in 2008. Chemring is a leading producer of military pyrotechnic
signal, markers and flares in the world.


United Way unveils


'ambitious' goal of


raising $225,000

With the economy still reeling and the local unemployment rate
in double digits, volunteers at the Taylor County United Way kick-
off breakfast Tuesday morning said this year's campaign could be
the most important one in the organization's history.
In response, campaign co-chairs Scott Barton and Debbie
Sheppard announced an ambitious goal of $225,000.
The mood Tuesday morning was both hopeful yet somber, as
Barton and Sheppard noted the many services provided locally by
the 18 agencies which receive funding from United Way, but also
how the need for those services is on the rise.
The event was held qt the Taylor Senior Citizens Center, which
is one of the agencies which benefits from the United Way.
Senior Center Executive Director Ruby Ellis welcomed
approximately 80 people to the senior center, remarking on the
facility's recent reno\ atnons.
"We thank the United Way for everything you do for us," she
said. "Without United Way, we would not be able to do everything
that we do here."
After a Southern-cooked breakfast, provided by donations from
County Commissioner Malcolm Page and Winn-Dixie, the
campaign kick-off began in earnest.
Barton recounted his history with United Way beginning 25
years ago when he was first asked to make a monthly contribution
from his paycheck. He has continued that since, and five years ago
joined the local allocation team, which he called a "humbling
experience."

A-2 Taco Times September 30, 2009


Finding a silver lining


in the hurricane clouds


By RODNEY BARRETO
Chairman
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
It's hurricane season and
Florida residents need to be
prepared.
Between 1851 and 2006, the
state was battered by some 113
hurricanes, including 37 major
storms measuring Category 3,4
or 5. No other state comes close
when you consider the overall
hurricane landfalls and major
storm totals.
However, hurricanes and
tropical storms can bring in
species of birds we normally
wouldn't have the opportunity
to see.
"As Hurricane Ike passed to
the south of us in September
2008, I saw birds at Crandon
Beach you wouldn't normally
see from shore," said Roberto


"Toe" Torres, a birder from
Miami. "There were sooty
shearwaters just off the breakers
and many common and black
terns, resting on the beach. A
few brown noddy were flying
just over the shore, and a
Pomarine jaeger made a pass
over the beach.
"But, the most amazing of all
was the flock of about 15 white-
winged scoters that came by
right over the breakers," Torres
said.
Torres was also at Black Point
Marina on Biscayne Bay when
Hurricane Dennis came through
in July 2005. This area is about
eight miles from the barrier
keys and the open water of the
Atlantic.
"In between the squall lines,
there were hundreds of sooty
terns and frigatebirds riding the
storm. While we normally get a


few frigates over the bay, sooty
terns are almost always seen far
offshore in the Gulfstream down
here," Torres said. "I've been
out on the water down here for
most of my life, and I'd never
seen so many pelagic (ocean-
going) birds in one area."
Unusual birds can also be
found far inland after storms.
According to Rex Rowan, a
birder in Gainesville, coastal
and pelagic birds may be seen
after nearly every hurricane.
"The pelagic species that
seems to turn up most regularly
is sooty tern. Others frequently
seen include common terms
and laughing gulls. Our most
exciting stray was a black-
capped petrel found in Newnans
Lake in September 2004 after
Hurricane Jeanne. However,

Letters to the Editor


Officials have allowed 'ungodly


disease' into some communities


Dear Editor:
The game rooms proposed
to open in Perry are absolute
gambling establishments.
I know because while I stayed
in Fort Pierce recently visiting
my sister, my curiosity led me
to enter tone of the dens of vice
to 'inquire from the manager
how they work. The darkly-
lighted room had banks of slot
machines that do not take coins
or bills but are equipped with
card slots that are purchased
from a cashier in any sum of
dollars that you are willing to
lose.
Supposed winnings are
credited to the inserted card,
and losses are deducted. When
you leave the den, you can get
remaining, if any, credit back to
your personal credit card or get
an IOU from the den.
This is the loophole used
to say no cash is paid to the
gambler. While I was talking
with the manager two women
came in and each purchased
fifty dollar cards with cash,
to gamble away their grocery
money. Not only was the room


darkly lighted with banks
of electronic machines, but
the sleazy manager and the
establishment was disgusting.
I am writing this so that any
one whom reads this will realize
that our government-elected
officials have allowed another
filthy ungodly disease to enter
some of the communities in our
state. Some communities are
resisting.
We can thank the worthless
non-representative politicians
at our state and federal level,
as well our Governor Crist
who loves the Indian casino
gambling pact that he pushed
through the legislature to get
more tax money to spend for the
so called benefit for our school
kids.
Now we get "game rooms"
so moms and dads can throw
their hard earned money away
to gambling facilities. What's
next ? Are we going to allow
legalized prostitution facilities?
Will marijuana and illegal drugs
be sold over the counter ?
Are we going to allow our
church pastors to be silenced

Red Hats

give thanks

for support

Dear Editor:
The Sandy Toes Red Hats
would like to thank the Senior
Citizen Center and especially
Denny Knight for their generous
support to our organization.
The use of their facility for
our auction and lunch to raise
funds for the March of Dimes
is deeply appreciated. Our
function was a great success
and we hope to have a repeat
performance next fall.
To all the Red Hat ladies
and their friends who attended
and so generously bid on the
auction items; we thank you,
also. We had a good time
presenting the fund-raiser and
we hope you had just as good a
time attending.
Sincerely,
Marcia Parker
Queen Mum of the

board praised
Dear Editor:
My thanks to our school
board for not taking the pay
raise that they deserve.
They are being servants to the
citizens of this community. We
don't see this attitude in elected
people today. Thank you school
board members for your service
to your community. Keep up
the good work.
God bless you all.

Oh how the

birds rejoice!


Sidney is gone, and oh how the
birds rejoice!
In my childhood, Sidney terrorized
every winged creature which fell
from a nest.
"Do not kill my songbirds," my
mother would say to Sidney, our
across-the-street neighbor, in her
elementary school teacher voice
which showed she meant business.
. "Yes .ma'aml,L. he-.-awayw,.said,
appearing to be a iWoIel cififffh""T,
however, tilted my head and looked
at him with my eyes squinted. I was
a skeptic long before I could spell
the word.
When my mother wasn't looking,
or if we went away on vacation
or to visit family, some unknown
predator would slither underneath
the dogwoods which flanked our
house, and into shooting range
for our backyard where we let all
Heaven and Nature sing.
I am confident it was Sidney.
Throughout our childhood years,
my best friend and I spent a great
deal of time with our hands on our
hips, chastising Sidney and the other
boys for the oxygen they consumed
and never used in productive ways.
"Stupid girls," the boys said.
"Sticks and stones..." we said, and
something about hate.
Forty years later, on my travels
back to the neighborhood, I can
say with all certainty that Sidney is
gone, and the birds rejoice.
"Grandmother's yard is like a
wildlife sanctuary," the daughter
suggested, while looking out the
sliding glass doors.
"Sidney's gone," I told her.
In his absence, there are two
different kinds of woodpeckers.
For them, I have allowed three
dead pine trees to stand, or lean,
praying that when they finally give
up, they'll do so away from either
neighbor.
The woodpeckers are grateful.
And beautiful.
The traditional woodpecker makes
a fashion statement every day in
crisp black, white and red, while
his smaller half-cousin disappears
into the bark of those trees, while
removing the insects from them.
Bluejays zoom past and I am


By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
certain our understanding of
aviation found its beginning in
birdwatching. Since the neighbors
on both sides feed and water the
birds, I get to see their patrons
coming and going. And they do
a great deal of that, early in the
morning. Honestly, it's worth
getting out of bed just to see. Their
flight patterns, their runways, their
._apppo a an e.na
ery ordtel.y. Tr"f-fy"R-o T'r'etfge,
there has never been an air traffic
control disaster.
Along these lanes, when the
bluejays zoom by closely--unaware
or unimpressed that I'm sitting
nearby in my gown--I realize why
I've always liked the color blue so
much. They model several shades
of blue and I could get happy with
any one of them. Wearing blue all
day, every day, could be delightful.
Mockingbirds, I admit, may appear
drab but I immediately think of
My Favorite Book of All Times and
remember vividly that you should
never kill a mockingbird. The title
of that Harper Lee book--all English
teachers will tell you--referenced the
death of innocence. I think about
that while a mockingbird sings
his beautiful song from a poplar
tree--one of two poplar trees my
father transplanted from the woods
when he cleared this land in the
early 50s. They grow tall above the
pines, and present tulip-looking
blooms as a gesture of friendship.
Brilliantly colored cardinals are
faithful partners, and are found
usually traveling with their wives;
I saw three couples flying in and
out, during one sitting in my lawn
chair. It occurred to me that these
bird brains put some humans to
shame.
Sparrows and wrens are less
noticeable for their colors, but their
song is flamboyant. After all, it's
what's in the heart that counts.
Doves fly by, cooing their
way through the neighborhood,
along with swallows looking for
Capistrano, bluebirds seeking out a
box, and hummers zooming by on
the fast track.
Yes, Sidney is gone and oh how
the birds (and I) rejoice!

'Most important campaign ever'


UNITED WAY
Continued from page 1
"I did not know the true need
that was there," he said. "It's
amazing the money that is
given.
S"We always get a lot more
requests than we have money.
I'd love to have a campaign in
which we had extra money.
We'll probably never see that,
but we can always strive for
that."
United Way of the Big Bend
Vice President for Resource
' Development Heather Mitchell
congratulated the group for the
$236,000 raised during last
year's campaign.
"That's a lot of money," she
said, "but there is still need."


She talked about how she
loves her job with the United
Way because it allows her to
see what the money raised does
for those in need, whether it be
a safe night at Refuge House or
hospice care for a sick loved
one.
Despite the economy, she
encouraged everyone to take a
"refuse to lose" attitude.
"Do you have a job?" she
asked the crowd, with almost
everyone raising their hands.
"There are almost 1,000 people
here in Taylor County who
don't.
"The health of your
community affects the health of
your economy. The' dollars
raised here stay here. I would
also you to join me to become a


fund-raiser.
"This is probably the most
important campaign ever."
Sheppard closed the meeting,
also talking about her history
with the program, which
included a local hospice her
family worked with during a
family member's illness before
moving to Taylor County.
She has also served on
the allocation committee
here.
She welcomed the newest
agency to receive local United
Way funding, the Taylor
County Special Olympics. The
organization joins 2-1-1 Big
Bend, Ability 1st, American
Red Cross, America's Second
Harvest of the Big Bend, Big
Bend Cares, Big Bend Hospice,
Boy Scouts of America, Boys
and Girls Club of North Central
Florida, Brehon Institute for
Family Services, Early
Learning Coalition of the Big
Bend, Elder Care Services,
North Florida Fellowship of
Christian Athletes, Girl Scout
Council, Needy School
Children's Fund, Refuge
House, Taylor Advocacy and
Resource Center and Taylor
County Senior Citizens
Center.
At the end of the meeting, a
drawing was held among the
agencies which had five or
more representatives present to
win $410, the money raised by
the $5 each person had paid for
breakfast. This year, the
winning organization was
Refuge House.
"I'd like to say thank you to
you and all of the organizations
in Taylor County," Director
Debra McGrew said. "Just $5 a
pay period will provide a safe
place to stay."
"I ask you to take a 'refuse to
lose' attitude with you,"
Sheppard said in closing.
She also encouraged anyone
who wishes to contribute to the
United Way as an individual or
is interested in forming a
team at their business or church
to contact her at Capital City
Bank at 223-4710.

ever been involved in
government protest although
Curtis has run for public office.
"I thought those who were
involved in the anti-war
protests in the '60s were dumb
as rocks," Root said.
But both were amazed at the
number of just "regular folks"
who took the time to travel to
Washington and to various tea
parties all over the country.
Curtis said he spoke with one
lady who flew from Hawaii for
17 hours just to be at the rally.
Root said a state patrolman
pulled over one of the buses in
the caravan.
"He didn't write us a ticket.
He was an ex-Marine who
supported what we were doing
and donated $300," he said.
In Taylor County, about 300
people attended the July 4th tea
party at Forest Capital Park.
"Jan Hopkins--she really
organized the local effort--


asked me to serve as chairman
and I said yes," Root said.
Since then, Root has travel to
tea parties in Orlando, Viera,
Tallahassee and, most recently,
Washington D.C.
"It's an educational
movement," Root said. "People
need to go into the voting booth
and know what they are voting
for."
Root also appeared on
national TV.
"Griff Jenkins with Fox
News traveled with us on the
bus and Tucker Carlson
interviewed me in
Washington," he said.
Next up on Root's to-do list
is a trip to Tallahassee today
with several others to rally with
the Liberty Express crew.
Then, in early November, a
bus will travel from Perry to
either Jacksonville or Orlando
to meet the Tea Party Express
(round 2).
Anyone interested in making
that trip should sign up on the
local Web site.


Looking for birds?

HURRICANE
Continued from page 2
the American oystercatcher
that Hurricane Gordon blew
onto Newnans Lake in
September 2000 was pretty
mind-blowing as well,"
Rowan said.
If you're looking for
birds, find as large a lake as
you can near the eye of the
hurricane. Birds head for
large bodies of water, or
even wet parking lots that
look like water.

Salem post office

this Thursday
A town hall meeting hosted by

informed Salem residents that a
possible change in the way postal

On Monday, Sept. 21, eight
Roseheads traveled to Tifton,
Ga., to attend the Frisky Red
Hatters' Red Hat Jamboree.
About 100 Red Hat ladies from
seven chapters, representing
three states, attended this event.
During the
registration/breakfast time of 9-
10:30 A.M., each lady received
her name tag and table
assignment, her choice of
grilled peanut
butter/jelly/banana sandwich
and coffee. The ladies visited
with their table companions
and then shopped at the tables
and racks containing a huge
variety of beautiful Red Hat
items.
After welcoming everyone,
Queen Bo Goode introduced
the mayor of Tifton, Jamie
Cater, who gladly proclaimed
this "Red Hat Day in Tifton,
Georgia." Each queen
introduced herself and her
chapter.
Next, a "Talent/Un-Talent
Show" provided the
entertainment. There were 10
acts, which included singing,
dancing, piano, comedy and
recitation. Sometimes the
singing or dancing was
comedy. As emcee Genie
McCook said earlier, "Some
acts you will enjoy, and others
you will endure." McCook said
the blessing, and a tasty lunch
was served.

downtown merchants were
given to each lady. After lunch,
the ladies boarded trams for
downtown Tifton, to get at least
six of the 15 merchants listed to
sign their "card." Each
merchant offered special
discounts to Red Hat ladies.
This was called Red Hatters'
Downtown Frenzy, which
proved to be an appropriate
title. There had never been so
much red and purple in the
downtown area of this lovely
city.
Names were drawn
throughout the morning for the
many door prizes. Each
member of the Roseheads
received a door prize.
The trams returned at 2 p.m.
The ladies with at least six
signatures put their "card" in
the drawing for two grand
prizes. The first to win was a
Red Hatter from Valdosta, Ga.
Second to win was Norma
Collins from the Roseheads.
Each grand prize was a nice,
crisp $100 bill donated by
Tyrone Spearman, head of
tourism for Tift County.
Queen Bo Goode thanked
everyone for coming and then
extended a special "thank you"
to Spearman for all his help
with the breakfast and
transportation.
The Frisky Red Hatters raise


money for a number of
important causes which include
Ruth's Cottage (a domestic
violence shelter for women)
and Breast Cancer Research.
The Roseheads enjoyed their
day and were glad to help the
Frisky Red Hatters support
these worthy causes.

LOCAL MITIGATION STRATEGY ANNUAL

PROGRESS REPORT

1. Background:

Resolution No. 2005-05, dated March 22, 2005. Taylor County and the City of Perry worked together
to develop a multi-jurisdictional strategy titled as Taylor County Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS). This
memo is a progress report for the Floodplain Management Planning.

Currently Taylor County has 23 locations identified at this time along the gulf coast that have been
damaged repetitively by flooding. The LMS Working Group continues to work in mitigation strategies
that address this repetitive loss and data collection as an on-going effort.

2. Mitigation Update:

The following are identified projects which are at this time on-going in Taylor County and the City of
._ Perry: ...>,, .. -,,,, ' , J V V

Flood 1 - Countywide storm water management study is ongoing. The need exists to further define the
basins and analyze impact to the county transportation and road system.

Flood 2 - The City of Perry Project is to do an analysis and improvements to the existing storm drain
system in order to lessen and eliminate certain flooding issues.

Flood 3 - The City of Perry and Taylor County had a joint meeting on November 8, 2007 with FEMA
Region IV, SRWMD and their consultant to go over the preliminary countywide Flood Insurance Study
(FIS) and Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) for Taylor County. These maps incorporate new data,
consolidate nomenclature and provide a GIS format for planning and development purposes. These
maps were adopted on May 4, 2009.

Flood 4/5 - New bridge and culvert at Julia Street and Main Street in City of Perry. This project proposes
the construction of new bridges and culverts at said locations and to improve drainage and prevent
flooding during heavy rains. Discussion of project is ongoing.

Flood 6 - Repetitive damage locations data collections. This project is ongoing and proposes to
continue collecting data about the locations in the county that are repetitively damaged due to flooding.
This data collection is being incorporated into the county's GIS system for identification and display of
these locations.

Flood 7 - Analysis and evaluation of the repetitive loss locations. This project will research the 23
repetitive loss locations throughout the county and study the various options to mitigate this flooding
damage. The project will consider property buy-out, building elevations and other means to avoid this
repetitive loss.

Flood 8 - Study and development of a sewer system in the growing coastal areas. Currently 100's of
septic tanks are used and these often flood and contaminate drinking water and canals and fill with dirt
during hurricanes and storms. Taylor County presently has two water and sewer districts in the area that
are in use and have an ongoing plan to expand to accommodate future growth in the coastal areas.

Hurricane 9 - Additional sirens. Taylor County currently has four warning sirens along the coast. This
project proposes to add additional sirens to improve the warning capabilities. Suggested sites are as
follows:

1. Taylor County Courthouse
2. Jerald Walker'Park Located on Warner Street
3. Leisure Retreats Subdivision

Flood 10 - Maintain a debris removal contract. Taylor County is maintaining a debris removal contract
with DRC Inc. This contract has no cost until actual work is completed. We are also presently contracted
with BECK Disaster for the monitoring of DRC during their work. Taylor County has entered into an
agreement with Foley Land and Timber, our largest landowner, for the use of short-term sites for the
storage of vegetative storm debris.

Bulldogs down to the Starke 25-
yard line with 37 seconds left
in the half, thanks to a tight end
slant pass to Crocker and a 13-

However, a fumbled snap
by Crowley and a quick spike
of the ball set up the 34-yard
field goal try that fell short
after trouble with the snap and
hold.
Smith had a sack and Brandon
and Bass made big plays to
force another Tornado punt,
setting the Bulldog offense up
near midfield.
A 13-yard pass to Crocker
was followed by a 4-yard run
by Crowley, a 5-yard run by
Jackson and another 8-yard QB
keeper on the option play before
Jackson busted up the gut for a
19-yard TD run.
Taylor led 6-0 after Crowley's
PAT attempt never made it to

The Wilson Family Band was one of the fan-favorites


* /







Bluegrass fans from around the region converged on Forest
Capital State Park for two full days of music from a dozen bands,
including headliner Valerie Smith and Liberty Pike.
Festival-goers braved hot and humid weather to listen to their
favorite tunes, all the while supporting the March of Dimes. All
proceeds from the event will benefit the organization's campaign
to reduce premature births and improve the health of babies
everywhere.


The Tallahasse Fiddlers features several local musicians.


Valerie Smith and Liberty Pike headlined this year's festival.


High Cotton was named best band during


the Florida State Bluegrass Competition held here in April.

Bottom Dollar Boys


About two dozen people walked this year during the local March of Dimes' March for Babies event held Saturday
at Forest Capital State Park. The Sandy Toes Red Hats provided most of the walkers and fund-raising this year.


Volunteers walk for March of Dimes Saturday


Not all of the sites were on stage. Sydney Walker was
fascinated by a Macaw one festival-goer brought.


In addition to the music, the
Pickin' in the Pines Bluegrass
for Babies Festival marked
the culmination of this year's
March of Dimes campaign here
in Taylor County.
Although this year saw


an abbreviated campaign,
dedicated volunteers still made
their way to Forest Capital State
Park Saturday morning for the
annual walk.
Providing most of the walkers
and the fund-raising were the


Sandy Toes Red Hats, who
raised almost $1,000 for the
campaign. The group offered a
drawing to win two paintings
and two quilts, with the winners
announced on stage Saturday
afternoon at the festival.


Local campaign coordinators
thanked the volunteers,
especially the Red Hats, and
assured everyone that the
March of Dimes would be back
in full force for next year's
campaign.

Elks raise
funds for
Lake City
VA hospital
Earlier this month, the Perry
Elks, in conjunction with the
Lake City Elks, hosted a dance
to raise funds for the Lake City
VA Medical Center.
The Elks lodges will donate
some $300 to the hospital,
which serves veterans across
north Florida.
The Lake City VA Medical
Center provides a full range of
comprehensive health care
including: primary care,
specialty care and long term
care. In addition to the medical
centers in Lake City and
Gainesville, there are also
veteran services offered in
three satellite outpatient clinics
and six community-based
clinics across north Florida and
south Georgia.
Exhibit opening
slated for Oct. 6
at Hardee Center
The North Florida
Community College Art
Department invites the public
to an opening reception on
Tuesday, Oct. 6, from 4:30-6
p.m. to help celebrate its
newest exhibit entitled
"Evidence of the Unseen" at
the NFCC Hardee Center for
the Arts (NFCC Bldg. 11).
The exhibit, open Oct. 1-30,
features works by artists
Claudia Berlinski and
Meredith Grimsley.
Berlinski is a resident of
Ohio. Her hand-pulled prints,
digital prints and collages
present a nostalgic vision that
raises the question of personal
history,.,exhibit organizers said.
Grimsley is a resident of
Pennsylvania. Her works
"reflect moments of meditation
over spiritual growth, faith,
sacrifice and a longing for
grace."
The exhibit and opening
reception are both open to the
public. Regular hours for the
NFCC Hardee Center for the
Arts are Monday through
Thursday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.


Local artist spotlighted

...fall fitness for the whole family


By LORI WIGGINS
4-H Extension Agent II
As their kids head back to
school, many parents pledge to
take advantage of their family's
new fall schedule by adding a
daily workout to their routine.
Here are five tips for making
fall the most fit season of all:
1. Seize the moment: Time,
or the lack of it, is often cited as
the biggest challenge to
sustaining an exercise regimen.
When the kids return to school,
what better way to use some of
that precious time than getting
in shape? Your workout doesn't
have to take a lot of time. Even
a half hour walking your
neighborhood pays off in
increased energy and stamina.
Most health-club aerobics
classes are just an hour long,
yet offer big fitness dividends.
Taking care of yourself is one
of the best things you can do
for your family.
2. Enjoy the year's most
beautiful season: Some
consider Autumn to be a near-
sacred season, with its warm,
sunny days, cool evenings and
postcard perfect colors. Get
outside and enjoy the season by


bicycling, walking, hiking,
jogging and playing golf and
tennis. The time spent outside
will do as much good for your
mind as for your body.
3. Return to your club or
gym: It takes 30 days to make
fitness a habit, and
supplementing outdoor
exercise with increasingly
frequent visits to your health
club will help diversify your
exercise regimen and set the
stage for regular workouts once
autumn's leaves have fallen. A
well-rounded fitness regimen is
important. While aerobic
activity such as running or
bicycling is good for your
heart, resistance training is also
a critical component of a
balanced program, so be sure to
take advantage of your club's
weight lifting equipment.
4. An apple a day: In many
parts of the country, autumn is
-synonymous with the apple
harvest. Rich in antioxidants
and flavonoids, both of which
reduce the oxidation of LDL
cholesterol, inhibiting the
growth of dangerous plaques
along blood vessel walls, and
dietary fiber, apples are a


delicious and nutritious snack
that can be enjoyed any time of
day. Remember that each of us
should be getting at least four
to five servings of fresh fruit

and vegetables every day.
5. Make it social: One of the
great things about exercise is
that it doesn't need to be done
alone. Find a friend with a


similar fitness level and goals;
having a partner helps you both
stay motivated. You can use
your exercise time to catch up
on each other's lives. Boredom

Grow...harvest...



SIMMER


Gardeners know that the best
way to experience fruit and
vegetables at their prime is to
grow them in their own
backyards or in community
gardens, like the one being
developed by Taylor County
Master Gardeners.
Located in front of the Taylor
Senior Citizens Center, the
community garden will include
growing space for a variety of
vegetables, including those
used in this recipe from
cookbook author Katie Lee
Joel for "GroGood Garden
Vegetable Soup."
So, grow, harvest and
simmer!
GroGood Garden
Vegetable Soup
Makes eight servings.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 1 hour 40
minutes
Ingredients:
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large yellow onion,
chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
I bay leaf
3 medium carrots, chopped
2 parsnips, peeled and
chopped
1 medium turnip, peeled and
chopped
1 pint Brussels sprouts,
trimmed and quartered
1 3/4 pounds fresh tomatoes,
chopped (can substitute a 28-
ounce can of whole tomatoes
with juice, chopped)
2 quarts chicken broth or
vegetable broth
1 cup baby lima beans
One 15-ounce can great
Northern or cannelloni beans,
drained and rinsed
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground

vegetables are just tender,
about 5 more minutes. Add the
tomatoes and their juices and
the stock. Bring the mixture to
a boil, reduce the heat, cover,
and simmer for 1 hour. Add the
beans, salt and pepper, and
simmer for another 30 minutes.

...fall leaves to the rescue


As Mother Nature adorns the
trees in your yard in their best s
fall colors, you can easily get c
swept up in the romance of the
season--until those leaves turn
brown, drop from the branches
and litter your lawn. Then you
start to think of the hours of
backbreaking raking work
ahead of you.
This autumn, why not try
working with Mother Nature by
mulching those leaves instead
of raking, bagging and
condemning them to a landfill?
Leaf mulching is a time-
saving, environmentally
friendly way to deal with fallen
leaves. Plus, if you live in a
community that has cut back on
collection services due to the
economy, mulching can solve
your dilemma of what to do
with the leaves littering your
lawn.
"It doesn't make sense to rake
leaves and bag them, just to
have them end up decomposing
in a landfill," says Dr. Phil
Dwyer, senior scientist at The
Scotts Miracle-Gro Company.
"Leaf mulching recycles a
natural resource and enriches
the soil of your lawn for free."
In fact, turf benefits by
receiving more nutrients when
you mulch fall leaves back into
the lawn instead of raking
them, according to a study by
Michigan State University
turfgrass researcher Thom
Nikolai and ScottsMiracle-Gro
scientists. Recycling fallen
leaves saves time and money,
adds nutrients to the soil,
speeds spring greening and
reduces weeds.
Here's how to recycle this
fall's crop of fallen leaves:
* Remove the grass catcher
from your lawn mower. Mow
over the leaves on your lawn.
Repeat until they are reduced to
dime-sized pieces.
* Mow until you see about
half an inch of grass through
the mulched leaf layer.
Any kind of rotary-action
mower will do the job, and all
kinds of leaves can be mulched.
Throughout the season, you can
chopup to IS inches total of
.."leaf'clutter with several pa e-' ....
of the mower. Having a
somewhat thick layer of
mulched leaves is okay as long
as you can still see the green
grass blades poking through.
As leaf bits settle into the
ground, microbes and worms
get to work recycling them.
Once you've enriched your
soil with leaf mulching, don't
forget that fall is the best time
to feed and seed your lawn. A
few simple steps can help
ensure that your lawn will
be strong next season and
beyond:
* After mulching, feed your
lawn with fall lawn fertilizer to
help build strong, deep roots
for a better foundation and a
more robust lawn next year.
The nitrogen in the fertilizer
will also help the mulched
leaves decompose faster. Be
sure to sweep excess fertilizer
off hard surfaces like
driveways and sidewalks.
* After feeding, spread seed
where needed. To reseed your
bare spots, dig up bare areas,

for


these


ideas...

Although winters in North
Florida are usually mild, it's a
good time to take a look at
your yard and make a list of
"Things To Do" to prepare for
the season's change:
* Check those gutters. Make
sure gutters are clear because
hurricanes continue to be a
threat and torrential rains can


be expected to accompany
them. Also check beneath
downspouts and make sure
weeds haven't restricted
water's flow.
- Fall is a much better time
for planting shrubs than spring.
Choose types that overwinter
well here, and they'll have all
winter to grow roots before
next year's heat arrives.

thicken the lawn and make it
more resistant to future hare

Many homeowners are
cutting back this year in an
effort to save cash. But a few
simple improvements to make
your home more energy
efficient can provide enormous
return on your investment.
"If you could invest a few
dollars and save $100, you'd do
that, right? That's what you're
doing when you invest in
making your home more
energy efficient," says Michael
Chenard, director of
environmental affairs at
Lowe's. "An inexpensive air
filter replaced at recommended
intervals can save you $100 or
more on your heating and
cooling bills. Making your
home more energy efficient
saves you real money."
Chenard recommends that
homeowners check out
Lowes.com/BuildYourSavings,
to answer a few questions
about your home and receive a
list of recommended home
improvements along with your
estimated cost savings. He also
suggests several ways to save
money in your home.
Utility Savings:
Toilets--replace an old,
inefficient toilet with a
watersense-labeled model and
you can save up to $90 per year
off your water bill, according to
the Environmental Protection
Agency.
Light bulbs--When you
replace your five most-used
incandescent light bulbs with
compact fluorescent blubs, you
can save up to $70 a year.
According to the EPA, the
average cost of a CFL bulb is









Programmable
thermostats can save
you money.

between $4 and $9, but
they pay for themselves
quickly in savings on your
utility bill.
Programmable thermostats --
AS little as $30 and an hour or
two is all it takes to save up to
$500 a year, according to a
2008 article in Money
magazine.
Thermostats with
pre-programmed settings are
intended to deliver savings
without sacrificing comfort.
For instance, your thermostat
can automatically adjust the
home's temperature during
sleeping hours or when no one
is home achieving significant
savings. The EPA recommends
raising your thermostat four
degrees in the summer and
lowering it seven in the winter.
Savings may vary depending
on where in the country you
live.
Do-it-yourself Savings:
Lawn maintenance--If you
use a professional lawn service
to mow, trim and maintain your
lawn and landscaping, simply
doing it yourself can save up to
$900 a year, based on the
national average paid for
professional services.
Pest control - If you've got
termites, ants or rodents, you
might be tempted to throw up
your hands and call a pest
control service. But you can


do your own pest control
easily and affordably and save
up to $300 a year, based on a
national average of
professional pest services four
times per year.
Tax Credits:
Windows--Replacing 300
square feet of old, single-pane
windows with more energy-
efficient qualified windows can
save more than $460 every year
in energy costs, according to
the EPA.
You'll notice a difference in
the summer when you don't
need to run your air conditioner
as often and in the winter
when your heater can rest more
often.
Sealing and insulation--If
you have less than 15 inches of
insulation in your attic you can
save money by adding more
and also use expanding foam
insulation to seal cracks and
gaps where air seeps in and gets
out and you can save up to
$500 in annual energy costs,
according to a 2008 Money
magazine article.
"In addition to the savings
you'll see in your monthly bills
through energy-efficient
improvements, you may be
able to take advantage of the
tax credits in the 2009
American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act," says
Chenard.

M E .NTAL IMPLANT
SYSTEM


How can mini dental implants help denture wearers?
The Mini Dental Implant System calls for four of the
1.8 mm mini dental implants, which ore about the size
of wooden toothpicks, to be gently placed into the
front of the patient's lower jaw. It is a relatively 4 .
painless procedure that Dr. Morgan can
perform, usually only requiring a mild anesthesia. Your
denture is then carefully adjusted by the dentist to allow
it to snap onto the four mini implants. The result? A
tight fitting, completely reliable system, that allows you
to speak and eat with confidence. All performed in
about two hours, then you may go out and enjoy your
favorite lunch.
