Board members from
Doctors' Memorial Hospital
(DMH) are exploring every
option available to them for the
continued success of the
facility--and chief among those
is a possible partnership with
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital
(TMH).
The board was expected to
hear a draft proposal from
TMH Tuesday night.

crash
An officer at Madison
Correctional Institution--and
the husband of a kindergarten
teacher at Perry Primary
School--was killed in a single
vehicle accident Saturday
morning three miles north of
Greenville.
Richard B. Rudd, 41, was
eastbound on County Road 140
when he ran off the road and
overcorrected. His 2006 Ford
F-150 spun out of control and
crashed head-on into a tree,
Florida Highway Patrol Cpl.
Donnie Pitts reported.
The crash occurred around
9:45 a.m. in Madison County.
The Madison County Sheriffs
Office and Greenville
Volunteer Fire Department
assisted at the scene.
A 1985 graduate of Taylor
County High School, Rudd
was a Navy veteran and had
worked with the Florida
Department of Corrections for
a number of years both at the
Madison and Jefferson County
institutions. Survivors include
his wife, Stacey Scott Rudd of
Greenville. Funeral services
will be held today
(Wednesday) at Beggs Funeral
Home in Madison.


and we are doing everything we
can to make it an institution our
citizens can be proud of...I
think it would be negligent not
to explore the avenue of
partnering with TMH. They
will be giving us their initial
proposal tonight as a starting
point to begin looking and
talking with them," DMH
Board Chairman Dewayne
Lanier said Tuesday afternoon.
Forging a partnership with
TMH "would aid in
development of long-term


strategies aimed at assuring the
clinical and financial success of
the hospital."
Mark O'Bryant, president
and CEO of Tallahassee
Memorial HealthCare, has met
with DMH directors on several
occasions to discuss issues
related to the hospital's current
and future operations.
To date, several TMH
administrators have also visited
the hospital to provide input.
The involvement of TMH is
guided by that hospital's


strategic plan which states that
"the best health care is
delivered locally" and that it
will work with local hospitals
to support a high quality of
care.
-TMH has agreed to provide
an interim CEO to assist in
managing the day-to-day
operations until a permanent
CEO can be hired and a
possible partnership between
the hospitals can be explored.

Administrators, Geri Forbes,


TCHS Senior Honor Court
Taylor County High School students are celebrating their annual Homecoming this week, with a series of
events leading up to the big game Friday night. Students are participating in "dress up" days, which began
Monday with pajama day. Today (Wednesday) is Red, White and Blue Day in honor of Veterans Day, Thursday is
Camo/Mix-Match Day and Friday is the traditional Orange & Blue Day. The Pep Rally will be held Thursday in the
gymnatorium. Friday's Homecoming Parade will begin at 12:30 p.m., and will travel through downtown Perry.
Shown here are members of the 2009 Senior Honor Court: (front, I to r) Gloria Taylor, Cassidy Stephens, Charley
Campbell and Taylor Woods; (back, I to r) JaBahri Bishop, Reggie King, Brittany Miller and Tevin Ellis. Not pictured

Forbes will report to Jason
Moore, TMH's chief operating
officer who has been acting as
liaison between TMH and
Doctors' Memorial.
"We need to get a CEO and
we are to the point where we
have a couple of candidates and
TMH has a couple of
candidates. We are going to
interview the candidates they
recommend and they are going
to interview the candidates we
have," Lanier said.

The Florida High School

School officials alleging
Florida High, which defeated
the Bulldogs 7-0 Friday for the
district title, played an

earlier district contest.
If FHSAA had granted

Florida High would have been

Union County, giving the
Tallahassee team a 3-2 district

district play.
Bulldog Coach Shane Boggs

Williams lauded as role model


"You're the world to me...you
will always be...for you
bring me sunshine everywhere I
go..."
These few lines from the
Jerkins High School Hymn
carry a spirit of deep, abiding
love and pride.
That same love and pride
was reflected back onto one of
its earliest and dearest alumni,
Bernetha "B.D." Colson
Williams, who died Sunday at
the age of 97.
Williams made history when
she, along with Johnnie Lee
Merritt and James Presley,
became the first three blacks to
graduate in Taylor County from
12th grade in 1932.
Her life story stretched back
to the days of horse and
wagons, and served as
an important "bridge
between segregation and
integration."


Williams served as the voice
of her community through a
weekly column published in
the Taco Times, detailing
church activities, family visits
and calling for prayers for
those in need.
She extended condolences,
recognized accomplishments
and featured favorite poems
selected to lift the spirits.
The oldest member of
Springhill Missionary Baptist
Church, Williams served as
church clerk for nearly 60
years.
"She was a kind, generous
giver. She loved people,"
church pastor Izell
Montgomery Jr. said.
"Her grandfather was the
first pastor of the church and
her grandmother founded the
first court of Heroines of
Jericho."
Williams was also active


with the commodities
distribution program, which is
where current director Lee
Young met her.
"My sister, Pinkie Langford
Lloyd, was working with the
food distribution and told me
they needed help. That's where
I came in contact with Ms. B.D.
Williams and I learned to love
her dearly. She was a
sweetheart--she had a gentle,
loving nature. She truly had a
love of people, regardless of
their race or creed. We will
miss her spirit in this world.
She was an icon in our
community and will be
remembered as long as the food
distribution program is
around," Young said.
Williams' life will be
honored during services
Saturday, Nov. 14, at Springhill
MB Church, starting at 11 a.m.

Boyd votes 'no'on healthcare


Calling rising healthcare
costs the single largest threat to
our country's economic future,
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida) voted against
the healthcare legislation in the
U.S. House of Representatives
Saturday and urged his
colleagues to continue working
toward a fiscally responsible
bill that would lower insurance
premiums for all Americans
and drive down the overall cost


of healthcare services.
The measure passed by a
220-215 vote. Only one
Republican supported the
measure while 39 Democrats
voted no.
"While the House bill does
take some positive steps toward
increasing coverage and
reforming insurance
regulations, it simply falls short
when it comes to lowering
healthcare costs for North


Florida families and
businesses," said Congressman
Boyd, who represents Taylor
and surrounding counties.
"Improving our healthcare
system is of utmost importance
to me, but meaningful reform
must reduce the skyrocketing
cost of healthcare services.
Until I have confidence that a
healthcare reform bill will

'America owes a debt


that can never be repaid'


BY PHIL HEARLSON
American Legion
When then-Governor Ronald
Reagan introduced returning
POW John McCain at a
speaking engagement in 1974,
the future president asked,
"Where do we find such men?"
He was speaking of many
veterans, when he answered,
"We find them in our streets,
in the office, the shops and the
working places of our country
and on the farms." In other
words, President Reagan was
referring to ordinary people
accomplishing extraordinary
things. And it isn't just the men.
Army Spc. Monica Brown
was still a teenager when she
went on a routine patrol as a
medic in Afghanistan in 2007.
Caught under insurgent fire
in Paktika Province, she and
her platoon sergeant ran a few
hundred yards toward a burning
Humvee. Dodging rounds by
only inches, Brown helped
pull injured soldiers from the
vehicle and rendered life-saving
first aid. For her actions, she
was awarded a Silver Star, the
nation's third highest combat
decoration.


When she enlisted at age 17,
the native of Lake Jackson,
Texas, had hopes of becoming
an X-ray technician, but the
Army convinced her that being
a medic would offer her the
greatest opportunity to help her
fellow soldiers.
But to credit the Monica
Browns and other brave heroes
in our military with helping
only their comrades is short-
sighted. They are helping us.
It is America, not America's
military that al Qaeda and other
terrorists have declared war on.
Fewer than 10 percent of
Americans, vs. the 90 percent
they protect, can claim the title
"military veteran," and what
a list of accomplishments can
those 10 percent claim. From
defeating communism, fascism
and imperialism, to keeping
the peace during the Cold War
and battling terrorism today,
America owes a debt to her
veterans that can never be
fully repaid. While relatively
few veterans reach the rank of
general, pride in ones' military
service is a bond shared by
nearly all who have served.
It has been said that Dwight


Eisenhower had more pride in
being a soldier than he had of
being the president.
As commander of the nation's
largest veterans' organization,
for the State of Florida, it is my
job to remember the brave men
and women who have worn the
uniform of the United States
military.
The Preamble to the
Constitution of The American
Legion calls on us to "preserve
the memories and incidents of
our associations in the Great
Wars." But those.who have not
served, in fact, all Americans,
should honor the patriots who
have.
We call on all Americans to
thank veterans and let them
know that their sacrifices, are
appreciated. Veterans .D-y, is
not about sales at the local retail
mall. It's about honoring our
heroes.
While veterans are often
ordinary people who accomplish
extraordinary things, it is often
an extraordinary family that
supports the ordinary veteran.
And it is the veterans that have
given us this extraordinary
country.


When country, duty call

amendments?) augmented by a

almost--but not quite--slipped
my mind. The irony of it all is
that I'm also a veteran--26 years
of naval service to be exact.
Congress, however, did
not forget. They've made it a
national holiday in honor of
our veterans of any and all wars
while serving in any of our
Armed Services-Army, Navy,
Marines, Air Force and Coast
Guard.
You know, it's scarcely an
original observation when we
.say that imperfections and
fallibility mar the works of man
and many of his most treasured
institutions--government
included.
While not claiming
perfection, we in the United
States can be quietly, and
somewhat justifiably, proud
of our system of government


spring full grown from the pen
of neither Jefferson nor from the
wit and wisdom of Ben Franklin
and the other founding fathers.
Neither can we say in fairness
that independence was nudged
into being by wily-tongued
diplomats plying their ancient
craft.
Quite simply, independence
was bought, and the price
--gaping wounds, mangled
bodies, the forever-crippled
and the forever-dead--was
paid in full on many bloody
and cheerless fields of battle
in our Revolutionary War by
our citizen soldiers, sailors,
and marines, in the manner of
that ancient Roman patriot,
Cincinnatus. Truly, our veterans
of this and all our wars were
(and are) symbolic heirs of this
ancient citizen-soldier.

like the sky is falling to you?"
Always the calm one, Ducky
Lucky decided that wood glue could
redeem the door and save the day. In
consultation with Turkey Lurkey, he
clamped and glued and prayed and

Forty-eight hours later, I asked
Henny Penny to visit again.
When she came to the door, it
opened smoothly and my heart
rejoiced.
"See," said Ducky Lucky, "the sky is
not falling."
But my argument remained, "I saw
it with my own eyes, and heard it with
my own ears, and part of it fell on my
head."
We were planning to have Goosey
Loosey for dinner later that week,
so I found my way to the attic for
those necessary (but little used)
serving pieces which make any social
occasion grand.
Ducky Lucky waited below, at the
stairs to the attic, for the items I
would hand to him. In my haste, I
picked up an ottoman to find the
correct box beyond it, and I dropped
that ottoman on the attic floor with
such a bar that Foxy Loxy might
have heard the noise, some 200 feet
away in his den.
My heart stopped beating as I
realized the ottoman had landed on'
its pointy corner, on a section of the
floor between the two-by-fours which
is not reinforced by plyboard.
And suddenly, there was light
from below. And dust everywhere.
And I, the direct descendant of
Chicken Little, knew exactly what had
happened.
But it was the husband below
who matter-of-factly assessed the,
situation and affirmed, "You're right.
The sky is falling."

Commission to hear issue


AtACK
Continued from page 2
within 2500 feet of any school.
Both the local grocery market
and the convenience store are
closer to the school than the
American Legion Post. Both
stores sell alcoholic beverages
to the public. Both have also
been in business since before
the ordinance was passed. The
American Legion is a private
club and only sells drinks to
members or their guests. When
it was built in 1973, there was
no prohibition on having an
internal bar at the club. This
privilege should have been
grandfathered in when the new
ordinance was passed. More
importantly though, it is not
a public bar and no alcoholic
beverages are consumed outside
the building. It is not a threat to
Steinhatchee School.
. Ironically the Auxiliary, the
women's counterpart to the
Legion, has been very active
at the school both in time and


money. Many of the Auxiliary
members serve as volunteers
at the school and the Auxiliary
has provided things such as
backpacks, scholarships, special
"end of the year" awards etc. to
the school children. To be an
Auxiliary member one must be
the wife or the daughter of a
Veteran.
Additionally both the Legion
and the Auxiliary have been
very active in the Steinhatchee
community. They have
supported the Steinhatchee
Community Projects Board and
the Steinhatchee Chamber of
Commerce in their festivals and
activities by manning booths
and serving as volunteers. When
the Steinhatchee Community
Center was proposed in 1988,
the American Legion was one of
the first organizations to step up
to the plate and support it. Their
members manned the cold drink
booth for over twenty years.
The Legion places American
flags on every Veteran's grave
in the Steinhatchee and Jena


cemeteries on Memorial Day.
Just recently the Auxiliary
raised $1,000 for the Special
Olympics. On Halloween, the
Legion provided the candy that
was given out to the trick or
treaters. The latest fundraiser
the American Legion is
sponsoring is the Toys for Tots
campaign. A benefit dinner held
recently has ensured that the
Steinhatchee and Jena kids have
at least one toy under the tree.
The Legion regularly puts
on a flag raising ceremony
teaching the children about the
care of the American flag and
the meaning of the flag.
Of course the Legion, upon
request of the family, attends
the funerals of all Veterans
even if they are not a member
of the Legion. They regularly
transport needy Vets to the VA
Hospital as volunteers.
It is a community based
organization with long standing
ties.
The Post itself is a friendly
gathering place of members.


Tuesday
There are no fights or late night
loud music. It is a congenial
group of friends of similar
interests. Most of the members
are senior citizens.
The Legion has recently spent
a great deal of time and money
constructing a new larger
building.
It is inconceivable to me how
the County Commission could
possibly shutter this entity
which adds so much to our
community.
There will be a County
Commission meeting Nov. 17
at 6 p.m. in the annex to discuss
this issue. Please attend if you
can. If you are a Veteran, or
even if you just believe in fair
play, please call your County
Commissioner and ask them
to keep the Joe D. White
American Legion Post open in
Steinhatchee.
And if you are an American
Legion member, you are always
welcome at the Joe D. White

GOOD NEWS! - FIRST TIME HOME BUYERS
The clock will not stop ticking as of November 30, 2009 for those first-time home buyers. Congress passed HR
3548 enacting an extension, and adjustment, of the $8,000 tax credit for first-time buyers. Among other things,
the extension adds money for certain move-up buyers; creates one deadline for signing a contract and a later
deadline for closing; changes income requirements; and limits a purchased home's cost to $800,000.
Florida residents enjoy two additional advantages. First, the Florida Homebuyer Opportunity Program (FHOP),
created by the Florida Legislature earlier this year, still has approximately $28 million that first-time homebuyers
can access and use toward their down payment. The FHOP program, which allows you to obtain an interest-free
bridge loan to access your federal tax credit before you complete a home purchase, enables you to use that
money upfront for down payment and closing costs. Once you submit your retum to the IRS and receive your tax
credit money, you repay your loans to the state. The second advantage is, move-up buyers now have the ability
to "port" their current property tax savings to a new home.


First-time Home buyers
* Up to $8,000 ($4,000 if married and filing separately)
* Have not owned a home within the last three years
' A purchase must be under contract by April 30, 2010.
* Purchase must be closed no later than June 30, 2010.
* After 12/01/09, income limits rise to $125,000 for singles
and $225,000 for married couples, up from $75,000 and
$150,000, respectively
- Maximum home value purchased cannot exceed
$800,000, prior to extension there was no limitation on a
home's cost.


Current homeowner tax credit
* An existing homeowner who purchases a home may
now claim a tax credit of up to $6,500.
- Owner must have owned and used the same
residence as a principal residence for any consecutive
five-year period in the previous eight years.
* Tax credit is effective immediately
* Eligible home buyers do not have to wait until Dec. 1
to close in order to quality
* Personal income limits, maximum home value, and
contract/closing deadlines are the same as those for
first time home buyers.


Before making a decision, please verify all information with your accountant

Weather Great for Cutting Hay
In my last column, I hailed the praises of
October's beautiful days-- but it seems those days
belong to November instead! Hasn't it been
lovely so far this month? In fact, I ran into my
cousin, Johnny Andrews, at the store in Shady
Grove Friday, who decided that the weather was
great for cutting hay.
New Things Coming Our Way
Since the last time, "Rocky's" (our new Shady
Grove store) has a fresh coat of paint; the store
is still white, but is now trimmed in bright red.
We have a Community Center here in Shady
Grove and plans for a new park on Hwy. 14 just
past the caution light toward Eridu.
There have been two community meetings
with county and school board officials, thus far,
to discuss the potential park and better
utilization of our Community Center building.
More to come as this develops.
Thanks, Rudy Blanco! Here at home, I have
a brand new tin roof thanks to Rudy Blanco and
his team who did a tremendous job in such a
short time! No more leaks, and my house looks
SO much better! It feels good to finally be here
at home full-time rather than back and forth to
Tallahassee. My little family also includes two
cats and my dog, Keller. Sally is the oldest cat
and was a gift to my daughter for Valentine's
Day 1998; she is very much a lap cat as she loved
sitting in my lap rocking as I read that first
summer she joined our family. Molly, the
younger and smaller cat, was a feral kitten that
my son Blake brought home back in 2004. They
live on my large screened in back porch, but
Molly is determined to be an outdoor cat! She
has no front claws, but that does not deter her
from finding a way off the porch, chasing
squirrels and hiding in my large azalea bushes.
So, I concede; I now have a domesticated big
calm cat, Sally, who is content on the porch, and
my "wild child" outdoor cat, Molly.
Remembering.... p�,, A
SThinking back, Grandma Sheffield had several
outdoor cats here over the years; the one I
remember most vividly was a huge white cat
named "Tom." She fed them all table scraps out

the back door of the dining room, and they kept
the place free of mice. Naturally, Grandaddy had
hunting dogs--and it seems he was stuck on the
name "Butch." Although the dogs came and
went over all my summers here, there was
always a dog lying under the big oak tree by that
name! As I think about it, his trucks were kind
of that way--they came and went too but they
were all little Datsun pickups! He must have
stayed with a good thing when he found it.
Thinking of his little Datsun pickup trucks, I
offer an official apology for all of you who were
in a hurry to get to town but found yourself
behind A.G. and his little truck going no faster
than 35 miles an hour on Hwy 221. My cousin
Benny tells a funny story of hopping. out of the
truck once and running beside it to make a point!
But I will always cherish those slow trips to Lake
Bird store where Grandaddy would sit with other
gentlemen to talk (and secretly enjoy a single
Falstaff that Grandma never knew anything
about!) all while Glen and I floated peanuts in
our Coca Colas and attempted to play pool.
Beautiful and Kind
I close this column with a huge "thank you" to
my Aunt Nell. The memory of her lingers as a
beautiful and kind woman. I would have written
this sooner, but somehow I missed the letter from
her when I read the Florida Forest Festival issue
a few weeks ago. Thanks for your appreciation
and kind Letter to the Editor. As you requested,
I will be including Thanksgiving recipes in this

Boyd concluded, "My vote

*that our work in Congress is not

'Dogs fall in district title game


BY AARON PORTWOOD
Taylor County had a five-
game winning streak snapped
and was shut out for the first
time this season, as Florida
High's Seminoles snatched the
District 2-2B title away from the
Bulldogs in a fiercely-contested
7-0 defensive battle in front of
a packed house of noisy fans in
Dorsett Stadium Friday night in
Perry.
Although both teams have
identical overall 6-3 records and
4-1 district marks, the head-to-
head win crowns Florida High
as the district champion and
gives them the right to host the
District 1-1B runner-up (to be
decided in a three-way play-off
Wednesday night in Chipley) in.
:he first round of the state play-
oBfs.
Meannmhile the Bulldogs will
be forced to undertake a long
buJ ride to Pensacola to take
on five-time defending District

Holding the Seminoles scoreless
until just 9:05 remained in the

Chase Varnadore helped keep
the Seminoles in the game by
averaging 45.2 yards per punt
with five booming kicks that
pinned the Bulldogs inside their
own 10-yard line three times.
"Our starting field position
was the worst we have had all

compounded the problem by not

block in the back penalty that
really put us in some big holes,"
Head Coach Shane Boggs said,
pointing out his offense started

Blount is reinstated

The Pacific-10 Conference
on Monday approved Oregon's
request to have tailback
LeGarrette Blount reinstated for
the rest of the season.
Blount, who played high
school ball at Taylor County,
was originally suspended for
the season by Oregon Coach
Chip Kelly after the running
back punched Boise State
player Byron Hout following
the Ducks' season opening loss
on Sept. 3.
"After a thorough review of
the situation, I am convinced
LeGarrette Blount paid a
significant and appropriate price
for the mistakes he made on the
field, and that he has learned
important life-long lessons,"
Pac-10 Commissioner Larry
Scott said in a statement.
Blount has been reinstated
immediately, meaning he can
play in Oregon's home game
this week against Arizona State.
Oregon (7-2) is coming off a
51-42 loss at Stanford but will
claim the conference's Rose
Bowl bid if it wins its last three
games against Arizona State,
Arizona and Oregon State.
"We're happy that LeGarrette
has been fully reinstated by
Oregon University football
to play the remaining of the


suffered in the 2nd quarter,
struggled down the stretch,
completing just 5 of 14 passes
for 33 yards in the final quarter,
including a stretch of six straight
incompletions.
Crowley finished the game
completing 14 of 32 passes for
103 yards with no touchdowns
and no interceptions, but
suffered through an off
night that included several
overthrown and underthrown
balls and at least three passes
that were dropped by receivers.
Despite the fact their spread
gun offense was misfiring,
the Bulldogs still had several
opportunities to pull out the
victory thanks to Florida High
committing three offsides
penalties and a defensive
holding infraction that gave
Taylor County first downs and
helped keep a drive alive.
However, after another
Florida High offsides penalty
gave the Bulldogs a 3rd and 2 at
their own 39, Crowley couldn't
handle a snap and fell on the
ball for an 11-yard loss forcing
his sixth punt of the night with
4:31 to play.
Crowley had an exceptional
night punting, averaging a
season-high 37.7 yards per kick.
The Taylor County defense
gave the Bulldogs another
chance to win, by stuffing the
Seminole offense for a second
straight time since giving up
the lone touchdown, as Bishop,
Woods, Sadler, Braswell and
Jackson made several bone-

year. The family would like to
thank the community for all
their concerns, phone calls and
prayers during this difficult time
in LeGarrette's life," family
spokesman Wayne Dunwoody
said.
Dunwoody said Blount asks
the community for its continued
support and prayers for him and
his family during the rest of the
season and into his projected
pro football career.
Blount is the son of Mrs.
Barbara Blount and Garry
Blount, both of Perry.
Prior to his suspension, he
was projected to be the first
or second running back to be
drafted in the 2010 NFL Draft.
Blount, who has missed
Oregon's last eight games
after being suspended by Kelly
following the season-opening
loss at Boise State, has remained
a member of the team and has
participated in practice since the
post-game incident which led to
his suspension.
Kelly said he forwarded his
recommendation for Blount's
reinstatement to Oregon

President Richard Lariviere
and Pacific-10 Conference


crushing tackles to force another
punt.
Taylor County started on their
own 40-yard line after James
Houston picked up 15 yards on
his only punt return of the night
and Boggs reached into his bag
of tricks on 1st down by calling
for a double pass.
JV QB Eli Grambling lined
up as a wide receiver, stepped
back on the snap and caught
a lateral pass from Crowley
before attempting to find Kelvin
Crocker deep down the sideline,
but his pass came up well short.
Crowley connected with Chad
Hill for a 13-yard completion
over the middle and then found
James Strawter (7 catches, 29
yards) for a 5-yard completion
that moved the Bulldogs to the
Florida High 42.
With no timeouts remaining
and time running out, Crowley
spiked the ball to stop the clock
and then found Strawter again
for a short 4-yard gain on 3rd
down and 5.
When officials did not stop
the clock for a measurement,
Crowley appeared to spike
the ball on 4th down (which
would have ended the game),
but the Bulldogs were
flagged for a motion penalty
that backed them up 5 yards
and gave Crowley one more
play.
Crowley's final desperation
heave to Reggie King (5 catches,
55 yards) was overthrown as the
final seconds ticked off of the
heartbreaking district loss.

Commissioner Larry Scott.
Blount's suspension was
originally announced to
encompass the entire 2009
season, but Kelly announced
on Oct. 2 the potential for
reinstatement contingent upon
the running back completing
a series of conditions to
the satisfaction of athletics
department, University and Pac-
10 officials. Kelly emphasized
that Blount would continually
be held accountable to those
conditions for the remainder of
the year.
"I'm grateful to Coach Kelly
that he cares enough to offer
me this second chance," Blount
said. "Now it is up to me to
prove to people that their lasting
impressions of me are not what
they saw in Boise.
"When I am ready to address
this further with the public and
the media, I will do so," Blount
added. "Until that time, I feel
my actions can speak louder
than anything I could say. I
just want to help my teammates
who have been supportive of
me.
The Ducks' 1.000-yard
rusher from a year ago was held
to minus 5 yards in his only
appearance this year in a 19-8
loss at Boise State.

Hunting season



What you need to know for 2oo9-o1


By Tony Young
Media Relations Coordinator
FWC Division of Hunting and
Game Management
November means the 2009-
10 huntin' season's in full
swing. This month, I'll cover
everything ya need to know
about several huntin' seasons,
including general gun,
antlerless deer, fall turkey,
quail and gray squirrel, snipe,
and the second phase of
mourning and white-winged
dove.
The general gun season runs
Oct. 31 - Jan. 10 in the South
Hunting Zone and Nov. 14 -
Jan. 24 in the Central Zone. In
the Northwest Hunting Zone, it
starts Thanksgiving Day (Nov.
26) and lasts four days until
Nov. 29. Two weeks later, the
season reopens Dec. 12 and
runs through Feb. 17.
The beginning of November
historically is when the deer rut
occurs in Hardee County,
Camp Blanding and Avon Park
Air Force Range. Then, about
mid-month is when it normally
comes in in Alachua County,
and by month's end, the rut's
turning on in Jeffersdn County.
During general gun season,
only bucks having at least one
antler, 5 inches or more in
length, may be taken. On
private land, the daily bag limit
on deer is two. Bag limits for
deer on wildlife management
areas (WMAs) can differ, so
before you hunt, pick up the
specific WMA brochure from
the local county tax collector's
office or download it online
from MyFWC.com/Hunting.
Wild hogs on private lands
can be hunted year-round with
no bag or size limits. On most
public lands, there are no bag
or size limits also, and hogs are
legal to take during most


hunting seasons except spring
turkey. On a few public hunting
areas, specific bag and size
limits do apply, so check the
WMA brochure to be sure.
Hunters are allowed to take
deer and wild hogs over
feeding stations on private
land, but they may not use such
feed on WMAs, no matter the
season or the game.
It's illegal to take deer using
rimfire cartridges or non-
expanding, full-metal case
ammunition. Shooting
swimming deer also is against
the law.


Within the general gun
season is the highly anticipated
antlerless deer season, better
known as "doe week." On
private lands, these seven days
run Nov. 7-13 in the South
Hunting Zone, Thanksgiving
week (Nov. 21-27) in the
Central Zone and Christmas
week (Dec. 19-25) in the
Northwest Hunting Zone.
During doe week, deer of
either sex may be taken (except
for spotted fawns) on private
lands. The daily bag limit
during this week-long season is
one buck and one doe or two


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission is proposing changes to white-
tailed deer hunting zones and seasons. The
purpose is to better align season dates with the
times of peak deer activity associated with the
breeding season (the "rut") and to increase
hunter satisfaction.
A draft of possible deer hunting zones and
season dates was advertised beginning in
April 2009. Six public meetings were
conducted around the state in May and June to
share information regarding the possible
changes and to gather public input. Public
input was also received via an online survey.
A total of 855 comment cards were
submitted regarding possible changes to deer
hunting zones and seasons. These comments


bucks. You may not take two
does in one day like you can
during archery season. Also,
regardless of season, sex or
number of permits, hunters are
never allowed to harvest more
than two deer per day under
any circumstances. Taking
antlerless deer is prohibited
during general gun season on
WMAs, unless you have an
antlerless deer permit for that
particular area.
Folks hunting deer with dogs
on private or public lands,
,** Please see page 5


Changes


for hunting


ines, seasons?


%\ere considered by the FWC and resulted in
several recommended changes to the proposal
presented at the May and June public
meetings and posted on the Internet
In September 2009, a revised draft of deer
hunting zones and season dates was presented
at the commission meeting, at two public
meetings and online.
Comment were gathered during the public
meetings and via pn online survey.
These comments resulted in two changes:
The anlerless deer season was adjusted later
by one day for Zones B and D and the
Kissimmee Chain of Lakes Area, which
would be bisected by the new Zone B, is
proposed to have Zone B seasons beginning
with the 2010-2011 hunting season.

degrees. Swine brucellosis is
not transmitted through
properly cooked meat.
"Hunters shouldn't be overly
concerned with swine
brucellosis, but they should
practice these good-hygiene,
safety precautions when field-
dressing wild hogs," FWC
Wildlife veterinarian Mark
'C~unningham said. , ,
Brucellosis in people is
called undulant fever and could
be transmitted if a hunter cuts
himself while field-dressing a


wild hog and is exposed to the
animal's blood or bodily fluids.
Symptoms may include a
recurrent fever, chills, night
sweats, weakness, headaches,
back pain, swollen joints, loss
of appetite and weight loss.
Hunters who exhibit these
symptoms or may have been
exposed should contact a
�lhysician.r ' ,- . :* - !.,
Contact your county health
department for further
information about swine
brucellosis.

This dog hunts!


FWCK-9 rescues hunter lost in Ocala NationalForest


Bubba's at it again. This time
the 9-year-old canine officer
tracked down a 70-year-old
hunter from Lakeland who had
lost his way in the Ocala
National Forest. Bubba and his
human partner, Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) Officer
Jeff Gier, found the man safe a
couple of hours after his
brother reported him missing.
Cleatis Kelly had been
hunting in the Ocala Wildlife
Management Area on Saturday
when he didn't return to his
hunt camp that evening. His
truck was still parked where
he'd left it earlier, but there was
no sign of him.
Several FWC officers
immediately responded.
Among them were Gier and
Bubba who set out about 9 p.m.
from the man's tree stand off
Forest Road 10 just west of


State Road 19 near the Juniper
Wilderness Area. About an
hour and a half later, they found
him in thick woods, and he was
mighty happy to see them.
"When I saw that light, I got
down on my knees and said a
few prayers. That's how happy
I was to see them," Kelly said.
"Bubba licked me all over; he
was just beautiful."
He added that when the
officers led him out of the thick
woods, they used a navigation
device to find their way back to
their trucks.
"It's pretty easy to get
disoriented in the woods, and
that's exactly what happened
when Mr. Kelly climbed out of
his tree stand just before dusk,"
Gier said. "He wandered
about one and a half miles
before stopping and building a
fire, and he was preparing to
spend the night in the woods


when Bubba found him."
Although Kelly did not have
a compass or navigational
equipment with him, Gier said
Kelly did a lot of things right,
which helped searchers find
him quickly.
"He stopped when he
realized that he was not going
to find his way out. He built a
fire so aircraft could spot him,
and he had confidence that he
would be reported missing and
that we would respond to look
for him," Gier said.
Kelly said he plans to write
Gier and Bubba a thank-you
note and include some goodies.
"I'm not sure what yet; bones
maybe?" he said.
Gier said just finding Kelly
alive is gratifying and thanks
enough for him. "As for Bubba,
all he' needs is his rolled-up
towel toy and a chance to
retrieve it. His pay is play!"

HUNTING SEASON
Continued from page 2
where it is allowed, must have
their names and addresses
displayed on their dogs' collars.
Hunters must confine their
dogs to the tract of land they
have permission to hunt and not
allow them to wander off it, or
the hunter could be subject to a
citation.
Hunters using dogs to take
deer on private property must
register the tract of land they
will be hunting. The statewide
deer-dog registration program
doesn't apply for training or
hunting with deer dogs on
WMAs.
The registration number may
be issued to hunting clubs,
landowners or anyone having
the rights to hunt deer with
dogs on a particular tract of
land upon filling out the
required application.
Application forms are available
from all regional FWC offices
and at MyFWC.com/Hunting.
Once you've registered the
property, you'll be issued a
number that must be attached to
the collars of all dogs used to
run deer on that property, when
taking deer with dogs is
permitted. All individuals must
have a copy of the registration
with them while they're
engaged in training or hunting
with deer dogs.
Fall turkey season runs Nov.
14 - Jan. 10 in the Central and
South hunting zones. In the
Northwest Zone, fall turkey
season mirrors the general gun
season but ends a month sooner
(Nov. 26-29 and Dec. 12 - Jan.
17). Only bearded turkeys and
gobblers may be taken, and you
must have a turkey permit ($5
for residents, $100 for
nonresidents) to hunt them.
Only one turkey may be
"harvested per day. There's also
a two-bird fall-season limit
some folks aren't aware of. This
| igB~y<f gmay harvest
two turkeys during the archery,
crossbow, muzzleloading gun
and fall turkey seasons
combined.
You're not permitted to hunt
turkeys with dogs or with
recorded turkey calls; you're
not permitted to shoot them
while they're on the roost or
when you're within 100 yards
of a game-feeding station when
feed is present. You're also.not
permitted to hunt turkeys over
bait. In Holmes County, you
may not hunt turkeys in the fall
or winter at all.
Quail and gray squirrel
season runs statewide Nov. 14
- March 7. Of course, the use
of dogs is allowed, as a good
pointer can really help locate a
covey of quail, and feists, like
Jack Russells and rat terriers,
enjoy treeing squirrels and
retrieving them once they're
downed. The daily bag limit on
quail and gray squirrel is 12,
but shooting fox squirrels is
against the law.
On private lands, shooting
hours for deer, turkeys, quail
and gray squirrels are a half-
hour before sunrise to a half-
hour after sunset. All legal
firearms, muzzleloaders, bows,
crossbows and handguns may
be used to take each of these
resident game animals during
the general gun, antlerless deer,
fall turkey, and quail and gray
squirrel seasons.
Illegal firearms and
ammunition are defined as
centerfire, semi-automatic
rifles having magazine
capacities of more than five
rounds and fully automatic or
silencer-equipped firearms.
Other prohibited methods for
taking game include shooting
from a moving vehicle or
herding or driving game with a
vehicle.
Snipe season this year again
runs Nov. 1 - Feb. 15
statewide. And the second
phase of the mourning and
white-winged dove season also
runs the last half of the month,
Nov. 14-29.
Shooting hours for both
migratory birds is one-half hour
before sunrise to sunset.


There's an eight-bird daily bag
limit on snipe, and the bag limit
on dove is 15.
You must have the no-cost
migratory bird permit if you
want to hunt snipe, dove or any


collectors' offices, retail outlets
that sell hunting and fishing
gear, by calling toll-free 888-
HUNT-FLORIDA or by going
online at www.wildlife
license.com/fl.
Whether small-game hunting
with friends and family or
hunting solo, going after that
monster buck, boar hog or big
.. i I P


tom, November brings loads of
great hunting opportunities.
Here's wishing you a happy
Thanksgiving and a successful
hunting season. Remember:
Take a kid hunting, or introduce
someone new to the sport we
love. As always, have fun, hunt
safely and ethically, and we'll
see you in the woods!
. 3


other migratory game birds.
The only firearm you're
allowed to hunt snipe and
doves with is a shotgun,
although you can't use one
larger than a 10-gauge.
Shotguns also must be plugged
to a three-shell capacity
(magazine and chamber
combined).
You may hunt either of these
birds over an agricultural field,
as long as the crop's been
planted and manipulated by
normal agricultural methods.
However, you're not allowed to
scatter agricultural products
over an area for the purpose of
baiting.
Retrievers or bird dogs can
be used, and if you're up for the
challenge, you may even use a
bow or crossbow. Birds of prey
also can be used to take snipe
and doves by properly
permitted individuals
practicing falconry.
Some things you can't do
while hunting snipe and doves
include using rifles or pistols,
shooting from a moving
vehicle, and herding or driving
birds with a vehicle.
The FWC even provides an
online dove update that gives
the latest information on
Florida's public dove fields.
The address is
MyFWC.com/Dove, and it's
updated every Thursday
throughout the dove season.
Information includes dove
densities, previous week's
harvests and field conditions.
The first thing you'll need to
participate in one or more of
these hunting opportunities is a
Florida hunting license.
Residents pay just $17.
Nonresidents have the choice
of paying $46.50 for a 10-day
license or $151.50 for 12
months.
If you want to hunt on a
WMA, you also must purchase
a management area permit for
$26.50. And don't forget to
obtain .the .brochure on the
\VMA .you're gonna hunt,
because dates, bag limits and
rules differ greatly for each
area.
All licenses and permits
you'll need are available at tax

SGuest permits now available


for hunting on WMA land


If you plan to hunt on a
wildlife management area
(WMA) this season, you should
take note of a change the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
made to its quota permit
system. Hunters can now take
a friend or family member on
their quota hunt.
For every general gun,
archery; muzzleloading gun,
wild hog, mobilitytimpaired
and spring turkey quota permit
(excluding Blackwater WMA
dog hunts and Holton' Creek
WMA mobility-impaired
hunts), one no-cost,
nontransferable guest permit


may be obtained until the last
day of the hunt at tax collectors'
offices and other license
agents. To take advantage of
this, the guest must have a valid
management area permit
(unless exempt) as well as all
other necessary permits and
license required for the specific
hunt.
Guest permit worksheets are
available for download at
MyFWC.com/Hunting by
clicking under "Limited Entry
Hunts." Either the quota
permit holder r the guest may
fill out the worksheet
and present it to any license
agent.


The customer ID numbers
for both the quota permit holder
and guest are needed to fill out
the worksheet, as well as the
guest's date of birth and four-
digit hunt number that
identifies the specific hunt.
The hunt number is not printed
on most quota permits, but it is
on the quota permit holder's
quota hunt worksheet, which
also is at the above Web
address.
There are some stipulations
to the guest permit, however.
Both quota permit holder and
guest must enter and exit the
management area together,
share the same vehicle and


share a single person's bag
limit. Also, the guest may hunt
only when the quota permit
holder is present on the area.
Additionally, on areas that
have zone tags, the permit
holder and guest must hunt in
the same zone.
Once issued, a guest permit
cannot be changed or given to
another person for their use, so
it is recommended to wait until
just before the hunt before
obtaining it. All guests must
have picture identification
when using their guest permit,
and lost permits may be"
replaced for $2 at any license
agent.


Nice 8-point
Jonathan Lincoln of Perry shows off a nice 8-point
buck he bagged during muzzle loading season.


2 face charges for bogus

hunting accident report
Two men involved in a reported hunting accident in Fort White
during early October are now facing several charges each from
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
officers.
The Columbia County Sheriffs Office took the initial report
Oct. 12, when the accident occurred and one of the men was shot
in the arm. The investigation was then turned over to FWC
officials, who found inconsistencies with the men's stories. Both
men were re-interviewed.
Gary Stine, 32, from Lecanto, was shot in the left forearm. His
initial statement indicated he was bowhunting while Joseph Alan
Barnes, 19, of Erwin, N.C., was holding a rifle. Barnes allegedly
dropped the rifle and it fired, striking Stine in the arm.
"One of our concerns was why did they have a firearm during
archery season," said FWC investigator Michael Pridgen. "We
discovered that both men were hunting with rifles."
S The FWC investigators also determined that the gunshot was
self-inflicted by Stine. "The sheriffs office seized Stine's .243-
caliber rifle as evidence. When I inspected the weapon, I found the
safety mechanism was completely unreliable," Pridgen said. "The
rifle could be made to fire when the safety was on, either by
pulling the trigger or hitting the stock."
Stine was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted
Sfelon, hunting deer with a modem gun during archery season and
hunting without a proper license or permit. Barnes, who was,
hunting deer with a 12-gauge shotgun, was charged with hunting
without a proper license or permit and attempting to take deer with
a modem gun during archery season.
