Sundav afternoon
Wesley Chapel
man killed in
crash here
IW¥
A couple and two children
traveling on U.S. 27 in Taylor
County were involved in a one-
vehicle crash Sunday afternoon
that claimed the life of a 38-
year-old man.
Mark Bento, 38, of Wesley
Chapel (in Pasco County) was
the passenger in a 1996 Isuzu
SUV being driven by Katheryn
Bento, 33, also of Wesley
Chapel.
The vehicle was westbound
on U.S. 27 when it traveled
onto the north shoulder of the
road. The driver overcorrected,
causing the SUV to cross both
lanes and overturn.
The vehicle came to a final
stop on its roof.
Katheryn Bento sustained
serious injuries and was
transported to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital.
Two juveniles traveling with
the couple, ages eight and six,
had only minor injuries. All
four occupants were wearing
their seatbelts at the time Of the
crash, according to the report
from Florida Highway Patrol
Trooper Matt Boatwright.
The crash happened around
4:30 p.m.
In shooting death

months since Thomas
"Tommy" Horton was shot to
death in his own front yard and

Taylor County, lived near the
town of Day and was a
longtime employee of Byrd's

Voting machines to
be replaced, again?
In the 2008 general election,
9,449 votes were cast in Taylor
County. Of those, 18 were cast
using the Americans with
Disabilities Act (ADA)
approved, touch-screen voting
machines here.
Now, with election
supervisors across the state
facing a two-year deadline to
replace their touch screen
machines with new "paper
ballot" machines, the Taylor
County Commission has joined
a position paper urging state
leaders to extend the deadline
to 2016.
Taylor County purchased the
touch screen ballot machines in
2005 at a cost of approximately

On the heels of the county's
annual celebration of forests
and the forest industry, comes
the news that the number of
wildfires confirmed in the past
year consumed some 181
acres...about half the number of
jpres burned the previous year.
Taylor County experienced a
total of 46 wildfires between
July 2008 and June 2009,
according a Division of
Forestry (DOF) annual report
presented recently to county
commissioners.
Four fires were caused by
lightning (99.7 acres), one by
campfires (two acres), one by
smoking (1.5 acres), 13 by
debris burning (19.8 acres), six
by incendiary (37.5 acres), 10
by equipment, including tree
harvesting and farming (8.6
acres),'four by children (2.3
acres), four by unknown causes
(8.2 acres) and three by
miscellaneous (1.6 acres).

"The support given to the
Division of Forestry by the
Taylor County Commission,
Taylor County Fire-Rescue,
local volunteer fire
departments and cooperators
was very instrumental in
helping to limit the impact of
wildfires on Taylor County
residents," Smith said.
In addition to wildfires, DOF
issued 680 bum authorizations
over the same period for 8,524
acres.
DOF also provided seven
mitigation projects for a total of

"Local DOF personnel work
closely with the division's
Region 2 Wildfire Mitigation
Team to reduce fuels in
wildland/urban interface areas
through the use of prescribed
fire, mowing and/or roller
chopping," he said.
"Wildland fuel treatments
included 158 acres prescribed
burned, 16 acres mowed and 95
acres roller chopped for a total
of 269 acres treated and 235

experience have shown that
wildfires occur less frequently,

cause less damage when fuels
have been reduced through

Vision

plan: from

conception

to reality

It took almost two years for
the community-led Vision
2060 project to go from
conception to adoption into the
county's comprehensive plan,
and now the county is moving
forward with implementing
many aspects of the plan.
While the vision plan was
included in the comprehensive
plan last year, it was done in a
way so portions could be
activated over its 50-year
blueprint.
Providing an opportunity to
begin doing just that is the
county's evaluation and
appraisal report (EAR), which
is required by the state every
seven years. The EAR assesses
progress in implementing the
local government's
comprehensive plan.
Based on the report, the local
government and the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs (DCA) evaluate how
successful a community has
been as well as offering
suggested revisions to the
comprehensive plan.
Earlier this month, the
Taylor County Commission
unanimously approved
transmitting a comprehensive
plan amendment to implement
the suggestions in the report,
with most of the substantive

New machines would cost $116,000
VOTING MACHINES
Continued from page 1
$80,000.
County Administrator Jack
Brown said the new machines
required by the new legislation
will cost approximately
$116,000.
Taylor County Supervisor of
Elections Dana Southerland,
who requested the commission
join the position paper, said the
county has 16 touch screen
voting machines, one for each
of the 14 precincts and two at
the election office for early
voting and as back-ups should
a machine fail.
Southerland said anyone can
use a touch-screen machine to
vote, but must request one at
the precinct.
The Florida State
Association of Supervisors of
Elections, along with the
Florida Association of
Counties, the Family Network
on Disabilities in Florida and
20 Florida county commissions
have already signed onto the
position paper
"In 2007, the Florida
Legislature, at the request of
Governor Charlie Crist and
Secretary of State Kurt
Browning, voted to make
Florida a 'paper ballot' state,"
the position paper states. "For
13 counties, this 2007
legislation resulted in the
second voting system purchase
since 2001 (punch cards to
touch screens and then to
optical scan). Part of this
legislation required the
conversion of the ADA voting
equipment to a 'paper ballot'
based system by 2012.
"The Federal 2002 Help
America Vote Act (HAVA)
required all counties to
purchase a new voting system
for each voting location that
would be accessible to persons
with any disability," the paper
continues. "The majority of the
counties purchased touch
screens with audio ballets. At
the time, touch screens were
the only certified accessible
voting system in the state.
Currently, there is only one
certified optical scan (paper)
Development options
are not mandatory
system that meets this
requirement."
According to the position
paper, 63 of the state's 67
counties currently use touch
screens.
"The Florida State
Association of Supervisors of
Elections has conducted a
survey of the counties required
to make the voting system
change by 2012," the paper
said. "The estimated cost will
be nearly $35 million.
"The disability community is
disappointed that development
of new technology, especially
to encompass all types of
disabilities, has not occurred
since this legislation was
passed. Given the choice
between continuing to use the
touch screen or convert to the
[one approved paper ballot
machine], the preference is to
stay with the current systems in
the counties and focus on
encouraging voting system
vendors and the Depaitment of
State to focus on development
of a system that would serve
persons with any type of
disability during the voting
process, especially with
absentee ballots."
VISION PLAN
Continued from page 1

changes referring to the Vision
2060 plan.
Included in the amendment
are the new land development
types and areas from the Vision
updating the current 2015
future land use map (FLUM)
out to 2035, according to
County Building Director
Danny Griner
He stressed the new planning
types and other development
options, including clustering,
were optional and would
not affect any landowners
who did not wish to utilize
them.
One change from the Vision
map to the one proposed in the
amendment is a regional
employment center that existed
northeast of Perry has been
moved to south of the city due
to environmental concerns in
the former area.
Other changes not related to
the Vision included in the
amendment are updated coastal
high hazard area lines based on
newer maps froin the state as
well as language included in a
stipulated agreement between
the county and DCA
concerning coastal
development.
The amendment will now be
transmitted to DCA for review
and then returned to the county
for final approval.
Wallet stolen
REWARD
Continued from page 1
approximately 5:45 a.m.,
Horton was shot and killed in
his front yard while walking
toward his semi-truck to
leave for work.
Horton's wallet was
missing, which allegedly
contained several thousands
of dollars, Lafayette County
Sheriff Brian Lamb said.
"If you have any
information regarding this
crime please contact the
LCSO at (386) 294-1301.
Anyone who provides
information, which leads to
an arrest and a conviction,
will be eligible for a $5,000
reward."

FDA backtracks on new
regulations for oysters
The Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) has
backed off plans to require
post-harvest processing of raw
Gulf Coast oysters harvested in
the warmer months after a large
backlash from harvesters,
restaurant owners and Gulf-
state politicians.
Earlier this month,
Congressman Allen Boyd
introduced the Gulf Oyster
Protection Act of 2009 in the
House of Representatives,
legislation that would prohibit
the Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) from
using federal funds to
implement any regulations that
would inhibit oyster harvesting
in the Gulf Coast during the
months of May to November.
"Since making its initial
announcement, the FDA has
heard from Gulf Coast oyster
harvesters, state officials and
elected representatives from
across the region about the
feasibility of implementing
post-harvest processing or
other equivalent controls by the
summer of 2011. These are
legitimate concerns," the FDA
said in a statement Friday.
"It is clear to the FDA from
our discussions to date that
there is a need to further
examine both the process and
timing for large and small
oyster harvesters to gain access
to processing facilities or
equivalent controls in order to
address this important public
health goal. Therefore, before
proceeding, we will conduct an
independent study to assess
how post-harvest processing or
other equivalent controls can
be feasibly implemented in the
Gulf Coast in the fastest, safest
and most economical way.
"While this study is ongoing,
the FDA will continue to reach
out to state authorities and the
Gulf Coast industry to discuss
their concerns about the
agency's policy and measures
the industry is pursuing to
make oysters safer. The FDA is
committed to assisting local
farmers in the implementation
of post-harvest processing
through all possible means."
"Through my seat on the
House Appropriations
Committee, I will be working
at every juncture to get more
answers and to block the FDA
from implementing these
harmful regulations," Boyd
said upon introducing his bill.
"The FDA has provided no
justification as to why they
would impose this new
regulation on shellfish farmers,
and little consideration seems
to be given to the impact that
this would have on the industry
and the citizens trying to earn a
living. This legislation will
protect the livelihood of our
Gulf Coast oyster farmers by
ensuring they can continue to
operate in the same safe,
efficient and reliable manner
they have been for over a
hundred years."
Friends welcome children's author
Children's author Carol Hair Moore was the guest speaker at the Friends of the
Taylor County Public Library October meeting. Moore, who was born in Live Oak
and now lives in Tallahassee, is the author of two children's books, "Marvin the
Magnificent Nubian Goat" and "Busy Bumble Bee Rides the Waves," which are
illustrated by Tallahassee artist Michael Harrell. During the meeting, Moore
spoke about how spending her time raising a family on a farm outside Tallahassee
gave her the inspirations for her stories. At the end of her talk, she led everyone
in a series of song and dance numbers based on the books.

North Florida Community College Children's Theater
recently entertained more than 1200 local school
children, grades K-3rd, from Madison, Hamilton,
Jefferson and Taylor counties as they enjoyed a magical
'journey through Wonderland. Three performances of
'"Alice & Wonderland" by Bits 'N Pieces Puppet
Theatre were offered to area children Friday, Nov. 6
and Saturday, Nov. 7 at the Van H. Priest Auditorium.
The larger-than-life musical mixed nine-foot-tall
body puppets, costumed characters and traditional
puppetry into this classic tale. Shown above are
-students in Chris Brynes' first grade class from Perry
Primary School who enjoyed "lunch on the lawn"
following the performance. At right, Alice poses for a
picture with Ragan Crosby.

Both the November meeting
and the newsletter for the Perry
Woman's Club were filled with
gratitude-in keeping with the
month's Thanksgiving theme.
The "thanks" were presented
by President June Byers:
"Thank you to all who worked
so hard to get the club house
updated and for all your work
for Fall Board." Beyond the
general "thank-you," Byers
spotlighted members Jeanne
Raulerson, Joanna Ter Maat
and Barbara Bums.
Then she deployed everyone
else to give thanks. "Please-
every member-thank Mark
Southerland for the new carpet
on the front porch, the new
flooring in the restrooms'
hallway and the kitchen. Mark
donated the flooring and the
installment for the front porch
and kitchen. Then, George
Armstrong donated his time
putting down the hallway floor
We appreciate them so much;
please make sure to tell them."
But Byers wasn't through.
Then she extended thanks to all
those who worked to make the
Dignitaries Reception
successful for this year's
Florida Forest Festival.
"Many thanks to Joanna Ter
Maat, Barbara Burns, Dot
Burns and Jeanne Raulerson."
Byers also expressed
gratitude to Sherry Jones and
Nancy Joyal who helped at the
club's booth at the festival.
Beyond all the thanks, Byers
reminded members to continue
collecting Box Tops, Campbell
soup labels and books.
"We made a special
presentation of these coupons
to Perry Primary School and
they were very much
appreciated, but don't quit
clipping and collecting. They
support our schools, and the
collection is ongoing."

Jerkins
'Tidbits''
of Community News
By SARAH HALL

A great writer once wrote: A
happy person is one who
knows how to take what
he needs and make it what
he wants.
A Dual Day Service will be
held at Triumph Holiness
Church, Sunday, Nov. 22, at 3
p.m. The speaker will be Elder
Carolyn Demps, pastor of
Bethel of Mt. Sinai of Mayo.
Song services will be rendered
by their choir. Sister Lottie
Brown invites everyone to
come and fellowship. The Rev.
Maurice Perkins is pastor.
A festive time it was Sunday
evening at New Brooklyn
Fellowship Hall where family,
church family, usher ministry
and friends gathered to wish
fond hellos and good-byes to
Frankye Sermons who will be
re-locating to join her two
daughters. Dr. Brenda McGee
and Dr. Wanza Lee in the
beautiful City of West Palm
Beach.
Frankye, who spent 25 years
in New York, returned to Perry
after retiring from Chase
Manhattan. We cherish the 15
years she shared here with us.
Now new adventures await and
we wish for her the very best in
her home city. I know she vyill
take us with her in her thoughts
and memories. Make no
mistake, you are dearly loved
and we will miss you.
"To everyone who wished
me a happy bon voyage, thank
you. Words can not exj^'reSS'JiiSt
how grateful I am to know that
I am so loved. I shall take
memories of you all from the
years we have known each
other and treasure them
forever. May God bless and
keep you in his care forever.
Thank all of you." — Frankye
Sermons.
Come on people - get busy!
The Taylor County Leadership
Council is cleaning up the
Jerkins School Site.
They need all the hands,
rakes, shovels and all of you to
join them on the weekends to
help make this once again a
cherished and beautiful site.
Contact Horace McCleod,
Bobby Collins, William
Monroe, Rod Williams and
others.
They will welcome your
participation.
1 am so grateful to have this
privilege of coordinating these
Tidbits. It will be quite an
experience for me, and what an
awesome challenge! I have a
thirst for reading and writing,
and I know there will be
complete fulfillment in this. It
is absolutely essential that we
share news and information
with each other. Mrs. B.D. did
a super job, so help me to keep
her work alive. Call me! I'm
available at 584-5314.
Remember: communication is
the key.

Louise A. Dickey

''Our Lou Lou''

Does America Still Have Heroes?
Storming the beaches at Normandy, raising the flag at Iwo Jima, and
emerging from the jungles of Vietnam, soldiers have long stood as the
archetype ot American heroism. For decades, soldiers have expressed the
valor and honor that inspire generations to become part of something greater
than themselves, and to spend their lives striving for the common good, be it
in the military, or at home. Alas, the image of these idealized heroes seems to
have faded with time, as society stowty comes to grasp the hardships and grim
reality of war and the world, leaving many lost, unable to find role models or
heroes In their lives. And yet, in spite of this era of disillusionment, even wth
their accomplishments and personas rationalized and studied, there are those
in our own backyard who continue to improve our lives beyond our Imagination.
These ordinary citizens had no Great War, and the closest they've come to a
battlefield is a Steven Spielberg film. Their frontline lies within their own spirit.
carving out a niclie in society for themselves, and forging a brighter future for
their families. Despite a family filled with servicemen and women, I found a
greater inspiration in this familiar sort of hero; in a man I'm proud to call my
father.
Marcus DeWayne Dickey, or Marty for short, has long exemplified the
voluntary and resolute strength that has so long been a hallmark of our soldiers.
I met him nearly seven years ago, at the time-my young eyes simply seeing a
man In camouflage and khakis, the dichotomy of the wardrobe instantly making
me wary of this new rival male. Though I didn't see It at the time, his patience
and perseverance befitted a saint, dealing with my annoyances and behaviors
with a smile when others would have fallen prey to apoplexy. Though it took
time, I saw the logic and reason in his mannerisms-the calmness in the fact; of
adversity, the silent contemplation when facing important decisions, and how
vital It can be to simply fihd time to relax and absorb the events of the day. After
he and my mother married In December ot my 7th grade year, I adopted some
of his habits, from the occasional stoicism, to his peculiar way of standing.
He soon took a significantly more active role In my life, perpetually pushing
me to try new things and strive for academic perfection. From explaining the
mechanics of our air conditioning system and energy efficiency, to describing
difficult concepts in my matii courses, to observing as my college applications
were being filled out, he became a steady pillar in both the good and difficult
portions of my adolescence. In a span of just a few years, this man whose very
voice I once loathed became one of the most prominent influences in my life, a
man who became a stronger father than I could ever ask for.
Looking back, there's always been one crucial trait that set my father apart
from the rest, a trait that thrives to this day, and giving his name reverence
similar to that of veterans, police officers, and firemen. Simply put. none of
them ever had to be a hero. Firemen enter burning buildings without hesitation
to save the life of another. Soldiers risk life and limb for their nation and
brothers at arms. My own grandfather received a Purple Heart in the defense
of the United States, and even now my aunt is serving In her third tour of Iraq.
The call ot duty these men and women hear compels them to go above what
is asked of them, and to put everything on the line for the sake ot a greater
cause. My father never had to see me as his own son, never had to take a
vested Interest In my lite and education, but he did. in the mere seven years
I've known him, his presence and guidance has helped me through some of
the most difficult points in my life, from adolescent woes to graduation fears,
and has become one of the most prevalent and cherished role models in my
life. Brad Paisley put it best when saying, 1 hope I'm at least half the dad that
he didn't have to be."
As long as these men and women exist, these paragons of valor and
courage that goes far beyond what is asked of them, America will have heroes.
They may be thousands of miles away or waiting at home, but they are the true
strength of a nation, and the caring heart ot the world.

38-8 over Chiefland
'Dogs dominate in Homecoming win
BY AARONPORTWOOD
The Taylor County Bulldogs'
playoff hopes were dealt
a serious blow when three
players were ejected for
unsportsmanlike conduct
penalties after the game Friday
night in a Homecoming win
over Chiefland.
Just kidding.
It didn't really happen.
What really did happen was
a dominating 38-8 rout of the
visiting Indians by the play-off
bound Bulldogs before a large
crowd at Dorsett Stadium.
Taylor County Head Coach
Shane Boggs rested several
and shut out overmatched
Chiefland (3-7) until just 4:31
remained in the game - which
was significantly shortened by
a continuously-running clock
in the second half - after the
Bulldogs scored 16 points in
less than 3 minutes of play.
Sophomore Justin Beceixa
had the biggest night of all the
many underclassmen who got to
see playing time, as he caught
a short hop on a line drive
free kick (following a Bulldog
safety) and returned it 35 yards
for a touchdown with 8:59 to
play in the third quarter to put
TCHS on top 38-0.

starters-including banged up
QB Ty Crowley, runningback/
linebacker Wesley Brandon and
defensive back Caleb Murphy—
but still had no problem leading
the Bulldogs (7-3) to their best
regular season record in 12
years.
"The biggest difference
between this week and last
week was that we caught punts,
and when we did, we picked
up some great field position,"
Boggs said.
"This game was just like our
entire season has been — our
defense dominated the game.
But, we also saw that our
offense still has to work very
hard this week in practice to
make the improvements needed
to knock off Pensacola Catholic
on the road Friday night."
Taylor County shut down
Taylor Woods (2 solo tackles,
1.5 sacks, 1 fumble recovei7)
nearly recovered a fumble in the
endzone for a touchdown on the
play before, but had to settle for
a safety to make the score 31-0.
That outstanding defensive
play came just over a minute
after JV QB call-up Eli
Grambling (6 carries. 5 yards,
1 TD) scored on a two-yard TD
run just 1:17 into the second
half to give the Bulldogs a 29-0
lead,.fpllowing the blocking (|f
Josh Wells and his offensive
linemates.
That score was set up by Tony
Jackson's awesome 54-yard run
after catching a short swing pass
out of the backfield and making
two defenders miss behind the
line of scrimmage before racing
all the way down to the 3-yard
line.
The Bulldogs' 16-point
scoring explosion in a three-
minute span of the 3rd quarter
followed a 22-point outburst
in the second quarter that
began with a 1-yard TD run by
Jackson, who had a big night (4
touches, 60 yards, 1 TD) despite
not playing much of the game.
Senior noseguard Jabahri
Bishop led the Bulldog defense
with 5 solo tackles, 5 assists, 1.5
sacks and a fumble recovery,
which set up Taylor County's
second score when the talented
college prospect scooped up
the loose ball and returned it
32 yards down to the 7-yard
line.
After a five-yard motion
penalty, back-up QB William
Wentworth hit James Strawter
on a screen pass that the
sophomore receiver took 12
yards for a touchdown on his
only catch of the night.
Wentworth's perfectly
executed two-point conversion
pass to Taylor Woods on a fake
PAT gave the Bulldogs a 15-0
lead with 7:26 to play in the first
half.
Woods then jumped on
a fumbled snap to give the
Bulldogs the ball back at the
Chiefland 15-yard line and
Grambling threw a bubble
screen to Reggie King, who
turned it into a 12-yard TD
reception to make the score 22-
0.
The Bulldogs had a chance
to pad their lead later in the 2nd
quarter after Wentworth and
King hooked up on a beautiful
pump fake, double move route
down the sideline for 29 yards,
but officials ruled King (3
catches. 39 yards) stepped out
of bounds before making the
circus catch and Wentworth (5
of 9, 32 yards, 1 TD, 2 int.) was
p*e1ied-ftff on his next pass.
Chiefland missed a 46-yard
field goal, and Grambling (3 of
7, 86 yards, 1 TD) completed
his own 23-yard pass to King on
another nice double move route
before fumbling and recovering
a bad snap to end the first half.
Neither team generated much
offense in the first quarter,
although Wentworth (4 carries.
19 yards) drove the Bulldogs
down to the Indians' 10-yard
line on Taylor's first drive before
he had a potential touchdown
pass intercepted at the goal line.
James Houston (5 carries,
1 yard rushing, 1 catch for 5
yards, 88 return yards) set up
the Bulldogs' first score of the
night with his thrilling 55-
yard punt return down to the
Chiefland 5-yard line as the first
quarter ended.
The Bulldog defense and
special teams gave the TCHS
offense great starting field
position all night. Taylor County
had 8 first half possessions - five
of which started in Chiefland
territory and three that began
inside the Indians' 15.
The Bulldog offense scored
on all three series that began
inside the Indians' red zone in
the first half and then scored on
a three-play, 57-yard drive to
begin the 3rd quarter before the
defense scored a safety and the
kickoff return team added the
final touchdown.
Taylor County had only 3
second-half possessions due to
the running clock and the long
Chiefland scoring drive that ate
up some of the third and most of
the fourth quarters.
The great starting field
position added up to very
little offensive yardage for the
Bulldogs, who needed only
146 yards of total offense (118
passing, 28 rushing) to record
their highest point output this
season. Taylor's quarterbacks
had two fumbles that lost 14
yards and the offense had 4
other rushes for loss (-18) that
reduced Taylor's rushing total
from 60 yards down to just 28
yards on 20 carries.
TCHS had more return yards
(182) than offensiye output, due
in 'part^a'Hinte^oft1^!fSi6.toti(& i
plays, as well as a pair of first
half interceptions and a second-
half fumble by Wentworth.

Friends and family joined
Taylor County High senior
Taylor Ratliff Friday as he
signed a scholarship to play
baseball with Jacksonville
University.
Ratliff, 6-3, 170 pounds, led
the Bulldogs as a junior hitting
.435 including six doubles,
three triples and 15 stolen bases,
according to TCHS Baseball
Coach Reggie Wentworth.
While Wentworth emphasized
Ratliff's performance on the
field, TCHS Principal Michael
Thompson talked of his prowess
in the classroom.
Ratliff has maintained a 3.92
grade point average while also
taking dual enrollment classes
at North Florida Community
College.
Jacksonville Coach Tim
Montez said Ratliff is the
complete package.
"Taylor was the key to this
2010 class. He is a difference
maker both on and off the field.
He's the best shortstop 1 have
had the chance to recruit since 1
was at UC Santa Barbara where
we had Michael Young (Texas
Rangers). Not only does he have
smooth actions defensively, but
throw in the fact he hits from the
left side, and is a plus runner,"
Montez said.
Ratliff participated in a busy
schedule this past summer and
brought home numerous honors.
Those include: honorable
mention on the Rawlings
National Team; Top 100 Juniors'
Showcase in Panama City;
All-Florida team as selected
by Prospect Wire Scouting
Network and 2010 pre-season
AU-American as selected by
Under Armour.
Going into his senior season
at TCHS, Ratliff is ranked in the
top 200 players in the nation by
Perfect Game USA Scouting.
Ratliff, who plays shortstop
and pitches for the Bulldogs,
has been timed at 6.6 seconds in
the 60 yard dash and throws the
ball 91 mph from the outfield
and 88 mph from short and the
pitcher's mound.
He has attended workouts
with the Florida Marlins,
MinnesotaTwins and the Kansas
City Royals and is expected to
be potentially drafted next year
within the top 10 rounds.
Ratliff, whose father Bruce
played baseball at South
Georgia College, was recruited
by numerous other colleges
including FSU, Florida,
Alabama, Harvard and Cornell.
Jacksonville, which plays in
the Atlantic Sun Conference,
has participated in 13 NCAA
tournaments beginning in 1968.
The Dolphins participated
in the 1968 College division
tournament (which would
eventually become Division II).
Jacksonville's best showing in
the NCAA tournament came in
the 1976 South Regional. The
Dolphins were one game away
from the College World Series,
but were eliminated by Auburn
7-5.
The Dolphins were part of
the NCAA tournament in 1972,
1976, 1989, 1991, 1994, 1995,
1999, 2001. 2003, 2006. 2007
and 2009.
The team advanced to the
super regionals in Gainesville
last season before being
eliminated by Miami.

tobacco to "Be Free" and break
the cycle of addiction.
During the Smokeout,
Floridians are challenged to
"Be Free" of all tobacco use
for 24 hours or commit to a
plan of becoming smoke-free
and beating their addiction for

Remembrance

service slated

for December

Big Bend Hospice and
the Taylor County Advisory
Council will host the annual
Service of Remembrance on
Monday, Dec. 7, at 6 p.m. at the
Perry Garden Club.
"This service is such a
wonderful way to remember
and honor our loved ones," said
Mary Ann Prevatt, advisory
council member, "and it's open
to everyone in the community,
regardless of whether they've
u.sed hospice services."
The service will feature
music, words of comfort and
a candle-lighting ceremony
where the names of loved ones
lost may be spoken aloud, as
well ;is Trees of Remembrance.
The Perry Garden Club is
located al 206 Forest Park
Drive.
I'or more information,
please Michele Brantley at
85()-.'i66-749l or michelebffy

QB Clenton Wasson out of the
game and pressured him all
night, as well as shutting down
the inside running game.
BeceiTa (4 assists), William
McNutt (3 assists), Levi
Sparks (3 solo), Beau Collini
(2 tackles), Kyle Linton (6
tackles, 1 solo), Will Tuten
(1 solo), Calub Murphy (2
tackles), Brion Scott (2 solo),
Cotye Riley (2 solo, 3 assists),
Houston (1 solo, 2 assists) and
Eddie Weeks (1 solo, 1 assist)
also made big defensive plays.
Chiefland picked up half of
their total yards on their final
drive (15 plays, 66 yards) which
was capped by a 5-yard TD run
by the Indians' smallest player
(but the one with the biggest
heart).
Chiefland's senior tailback
Jakarr White was the shortest
man on the field, but finished
with 100 of the Indians' 102
rushing yards and all 8 points
on 22 caiTies. White carried
the ball 13 of the 15 plays on
Chiefland's final scoring drive,
including 10 straight plays (all
against the Bulldogs' second
string defense).
Ty Crowley had a fantastic
night kicking, booming 5 of 6
kickoffs into the endzone for
touchbacks, going a perfect
4 for 4 on extra point kicks,
while back-up' punter Tony
Southerland averaged 38 yards
per kick on three punts.
Kelvin Crocker had 1 catch
for 5 yards, Jacquis Freeman
finished with 1 carry for 4
yards, Jalen Jackson had a 15-
yard kick return and Chad Hill
picked off a pass and returned it
8 yards.
The victory was impressive,
considering the Bulldogs were
playing without Crowley at QB,
their leading tackier and second
leading rusher Wesley Brandon
and Murphy on defense.
Crowley injured his throwing
hand in practice last week, but
is expected to be cleared to
play in the first-round playoff
game against (9-1) Pensacola
Catholic.
Brandon re-injured an old
knee injury against Florida
High the previous week and sat
out as a precautionary measure,
but is expected to be back in full
force to lead the Bulldogs' upset
bid against Pensacola Catholic.
Caleb Murphy is also expected
to play this week, as TCHS is
expected to be back near full
strength.
After reviewing game
tapes all weekend, Boggs
said coaches have identified
some weaknesses they hope to
exploit.
"They do have the best
running back we have seen all
season and a very talented QB.
They love to pass and throw it
deep," Boggs said, adding that
the game will be a tough test for
the 'Dog defense, but a great
opportunity for Taylor County
to show how much the team has
improved this season.

MARK MORGAN, INC
Letters to the Editor
Article on city EPA fine questioned
Dear Editor:
Regarding an article in the
Oct. 30 edition of the Perry
News-Herald, "Paperwork
error costs city $1,600",
information from the EPA
contradicts statements made in
the article in your newspaper.
Instead of merely "a
paperiw^k,.,! orror" or an
"administrative enor" as the
newspaper and the city manager
stated, the City of Peny was
cited for failing to comply with
federal requirements for land
disposal of biosolids, according
to Mary Mattox of the EPA. The
city was also late in responding
to the EPA, according to Ms.
Mattox. Ms. Mattox stated
that the fine was a result of
the citation, not the result of
an administrative error. Ms.
Mattox can be reached by phone
at the EPA for verification.
The actual press release from
the EPA (with the source) states:
The U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) issued
Consent Agreements and Final
Orders (CA/FOs) against 17
entities throughout the Southeast
from July 1, through September
30, 2009, for violations of the
Clean Water Act (CWA). As
part of the settlements, the
responsible parties in Alabama,
Florida, Georgia, Kentucky,
Mississippi, North Carolina and
Tennessee agreed to come into
compliance and pay $231,200
in civil penalties.
"By taking these enforcement
actions, we are sending a strong
n:)^S5^ge.,,^b9,ut t^i,^, ,importc)p,c^,
of protecting rivers, lakes and'
streams across the Southeast,"
said Stan Meiburg, EPA
Region 4 Acting Regional
Administrator. "To protect our
regions waters, these regulated
entities must comply with the
Clean Water Act and promptly
take the steps needed to resolve
the violations noted in our
inspections."
Nine entities were cited for
failing to comply with federal
requirements for land disposal
of biosolids. Biosolids are
primarily organic, accumulated
solids separated from
wastewater that have undergone
treatment and can be beneficially
used as an alternative fertilizer.
Excessive application of
biosolids, however, can result
in nitrate contamination of
surface or ground water.
Improperly managed biosolids
can expose people and animals
to unsafe levels of pathogens,
such as bacteria and viruses,
which exist in the biosolids.
Settlements were reached with
the following entities for the
associated penalties:
- Sheffield Utilities, in
Sheffield, Ala. (civil penalty of
$900)^,,,„w.^-......•,...,.,,;,;..
- Cooper City,' Fl.' '(civil
penalty of $3,200)
- City of Miramar, Fl. (civil
penalty of $3,000)
- City of Pembroke Pines, Fl.
(civil penalty of $3,300)
- City of Perry, Fl. (civil
penalty of $1,600)
- St. Lucie County Board of
Commissioners, in Fort Pierce,
Fl. (civil penalty of $3,000)
- City of Cartersville, Ga.
(civil penalty of $900)
- City of Sandersville, Ga.

- 'Town of Rutherfordton,

material into wetland habitats.

Pet owners responsible for animals' care
Dear Editor:
I must say the longer and
longer I live here, the more I am
sickened by the irresponsible
pet owners in this area.
Hunting dogs penned up and
neglected for who knows how
long only to be abandoned in
the woods for "not doing a good
enough job" and left to fend for
themselves or just shot. Owners
that just let their dogs run free
or are just dropped in highly
trafficked roadways with no tags
and little chance of survival.
Why do these ignorant pet

Wliat about

no cliild left

behind?

Dear Editor:
Once again this is about our
school system and No Child
Left Behind. My grandson has
a slight learning problem, but
when my daughter checked into
it, she was told there was some
help but because my grandson
did not get free lunches, he did
not qualify for these programs.
All I hear is no child left
behind. Well it looks to me he
is being left behind. We pay the
same taxes everyone else pays
and his family is being denied
.services because they work. I
just don't understand. It doesn't
seem fair.
Concerned Grandparent
THINKING OUT LOUD
By RAY EVANS
Is the debate over on global warming?
I've never claimed that I was
an expert on any subject.
Well, there was that time in
Jacksonville when the judge
interrupted the city attorney's
presentation of my qualifications
to state that the court recognized
me as an expert witness in the
air pollution case being tried.
That surprised me as much as
anyone.
I have been reasonably
successful in a number of
endeavors but I always knew
that someone, somewhere,
knew more about those things
than I did, and probably could
have done them better. That
didn't give me an inferiority
complex or keep me from
realizing that I was, after all,
pretty knowledgeable about a
wide variety of things.
Even though I am not an
expert on anything I think I am
smart enough to recognize that
many who claim to know it all
about a given subject often are
just blowing smoke. One who
comes to my attention more
often than I like is Al Gore.
Mr. Gore has proclaimed
that he is the final authority on
global warming. He hasn't had
any specialized training in the
sciences that deal with climate or
the atmosphere, yet he produced
a movie telling us that disaster is
imminent. He managed to have
it distributed to many schools
where his message was accepted
without question because it
was presented by teachers
who should have started open
discussions after showing it, but
didn't. It was reported that some
children had been frightened by
the movie because they thought
the end of the world was near.
Now Mr. Gore has stated,
repeatedly, that there is
nothing more to be said on the
subject. The matter is settled.
He won't even debate anyone
about it, which indicates to me
that he is insecure about the
science behind his statements.
If I wanted to "sell" something
I would be eager to show
doubters why they were wrong.
Several reports have been
published mentioning that Gore
has reaped tens of millions of
dollars from his presentations,
and that he might become a
billionaire if some of the bills
pending in Congress are passed.

Midweek Muddle
SURVIVOR:
Taylor County
By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
Once upon a time, deep in the forests
of Ta'ylor County, the first day of
general gun season commenced with
the resounding boom of men and guns
and testosterone.
The women of this fair hamlet usually
fell into two cainps: some accompanied
their men with guns and testosterone,
while others used the day to sleep too
late or to shop too much.
In the forests, however, the deer
^responded by fleeing deep into the
fhardwood hammocks of camps named
for their misery or their geographical
features which include rivers, and
prairies, and sand hills.
For hunters, this day of the year
is always preceded by a week
of attentiveness to clothing and
equipment-finding gloves that match,
getting brown recluse spiders out of
camouflage boots, and cleaning guns
which must then be sighted and fired
for safety checks.
In the grocery stores, hunters from
various parts of the world could be
spotted buying meat to grill, bread
to eat, Vienna sausages and crackers
for snacks. There are no fruits or
vegetables in their carts.
On this day, alarm clocks sound off
in what seems to be the middle of the
night. Men who have difficulty rising
for work each day at 6:30 a.m., jump
out of bed at 5 a.m. because it is the
opening day of general gun season.
Their clothing, which is usually a
last-minute thought, is already laid out.
Their trucks have full tanks of gas.
Their insulated coffee cups are filled to
the brim.
They beat upon their chests and
strike out into the forests of Taylor
County. For the women who choose to
sleep or shop, it is a happy departure.
It is also a happy reimion when hunters
return, unharmed and with provisions
to feed the family during the long
winter ahead.
But, on this particular happy day
for which all hunters had longed, one
man's dream turned into an upside
down nightmare.
The light of dawn had not broken
when this hunter began climbing into
his tree stand. He placed his gun
carefully and then positioned his feet
in the plastic stirrups, when in a twist
of fate which cannot be completely
explained or apparently prevented, the
tree stand broke, flipping him upside
down and leaving him hanging there.
Now if you don't hunt, or don't love
hunting and hunters, this seems Hke
a funny story. But if you care about
this hunter, and think of his wife and
two daughters who enjoy shopping too
much, then you realize this isn't very
funny.
The sun is not out yet, he his hanging
head down, 12 feet from the ground.
The blood is rushing to his head.
Survival techniques are rushing
alongside the blood.
He had not seen anyone near his
stand. But he reahzed his best chance
was to fire three shots--the distress
signal-into the air. After minutes
which seemed like hours, he was able
to reach his gun, and fire three shots.
Dead silence responded.
No one seemed to hear.
More minutes passed.
More blood rushed to his head.
He wondered to himself, "How long
can I do this?"
Unable to wrest his feet from the
stirrups, he began shouting for help.
A hunter nearby said he thought he
heard somebody talking and then when
nhj^.g^pif^ ]^ good ear in that direction,
he''hear®*tl«e'words, "Help."
In the darkness of the forests, he
trampled through thickets to get to the
sound of desperation, and then was
horrified to find his friend hanging
from his broken stand.
"I need you to get my feet from these
stirrups," said his upside down friend.
He wanted to help but he had to
admit, "I can't even reach them," and he
immediately began telephoning for help.
"I can't wait 30 minutes," the upside
down hunter repUed.
Together they devised a rescue plan.
"Falling into your truck bed is better
than falling 12 feet," the friend-in-
distress said, more blood rushing to
his head.
So hunter-number-two trudged
back to his truck and drove through
bogs and over sand hills to position it
underneath his friend.
"I have an axe," he said, "but I'm
afraid to..."
"Do it," his friend-in-distress said.
"I'll take my chances."
So he reached with his axe to break
the plastic stirrups high overhead, and
thereby released this hunter who, at
this point, had no feeling in his legs
and feet.
Even though it was an ungraceful fall,
everyone began breathing again, and
the blood began to flow south for the
hunter who could declare no broken
bones, just a pounding head.
But this is not the way the rescued
hunter had pictured the opening day of
general gun season; he was no longer
beating upon his chest, or worried
about the prestige of bagging the
biggest buck.
When we saw him, he had been to
church, which is a good place to go
when you've just been saved from
death's claws.
"You look great," we all said.
Then the husband asked, "I was
wondering what kind of advice you
could give me about my climber stand
and making sure it's safe."
"I tell you what to do," the rescued
man (who may now learn to shop) said
with a resounding boom which showed
his newfound wisdom and confidence.
"You drive down Golf Course Road until
you get to the Fenholloway River, and
then you throw it overboard. That's
what you should do with it."
The first day of general gun season
is a glorious occasion for 99 percent of
the population, but it is from that one
percent-deep in the forests of Taylor
County with sand hills, and rivers, and
prairies-that we learn life's greatest
lessons.
Be safe out there.

Tat(e enough time to be sure
what we do is the right thing
THINKING OUT LOUD
Continued from page 2
It seems that he has invested
heavily in businesses that
would produce "green"
products or systems to help
slow global warming. He has
much to gain by making us
believe him.
One thing that surprises me
is the large number of
seemingly intelligent people
who accept everything Gore
says without question. Many
questions have been raised by
people who are experts on the
subject, but they have difficulty
making their voices heard. My
concern is that everything
Congress proposes to
counteract global warming is
terribly expensive (read: more
tax dollars) and may have no
effect whatever on the climate.
Surely, climate changes are so
slow that we can afford to take
enough time to be sure that
whatever we do is the right
thing.
What we as individuals
believe about global warming
and climate change, and what
action we take through our
Congress, will have far-
reaching effects that we cannot
even fully imagine. 1 don't trust
any solution put together by a
bunch of amateurs in
Washington, but they are the
ones plunging ahead with plans
to spend your tax dollars.
In President Obama's own
words, their actions will cause
our electrical bills to
"skyrocket." That doesn't
sound good to me.
You must make up your own
mind about what, if anything,
humans can or should do about
global warming, but consider;
this: If you're under age 45 you
won't remember it, but in the
mid-1970s the climate
"experts" were clamoring
about impending frigid
temperatures. Time magazine's
cover once called it the
"Coming Ice Age." Many were
frantically trying to determine
what could be done about
global cooling. As it turned out,
they didn't have to do anything.
God, or nature if you prefer,
resolved the matter. I strongly
suspect that the same course of
action might be appropriate in
the present global confusion
about who is right or wrong.
Time will tell.
The "experts" were dead
wrong that time, which makes
me skeptical about their present
claims.
But I'm no expert.

Water Act (CWA) in 1972 to
protect the nation's rivers, lakes

cited violated the CWA by
either failing to meet the
requirements of their National

with biosolids requirements; or
by filling or dredging wetlands.
Pollutants of concern include
nutrients, sediment, oil and
grease, chemicals and metals.

pollution can deplete needed
oxygen and/or otherwise result
in the destruction of aquatic
habitats, as well as the fish and
